Beach Stroll

Summer is here! Finally!

My favorite SL Summer event- Summerfest, kicked off yet another wonderful round and just as I foresaw, I spent a small fortune on all sorts of new goodies for the season, including hair, swimsuits and these new shorts from Paper Arrow. I love that they come with a hud to change the color and texture of the bikini part, but since it didn’t come with a matching top, I decided to pair it with the one from the new Eunoia bikini from Boom. The bikini isn’t fitted mesh, but it is mesh body friendly with an included re-sizable version that I had no trouble fitting to Lara. As always, it’s always best to try a demo beforehand.

Peter’s been away traveling and I hated the entire month he was gone- including his bad internet connections! Nevertheless, he’s home… finally! So naturally, we shopped ’til we dropped, then ran right to one of our favorite hangout spots to walk along the beach and snap some pictures.

Uber Awesome

As of July 31st, Uber is a brand new monthly event brought to you by Truth Hawks. As we all know, Truth is the mastermind behind some of the best hair on the grid and so I am well… uber excited to see him (Truth Productions) expanding his horizons. The first rounds theme goes to ‘Vacation’ and I am loving how many designers have interpreted that with some beachy inspiration.

This new bikini from Boom and hair by Kavar for Exile just screams a fun in the sun vacation. I already can’t wait to see what the next month will bring us! What do you think? Are you totally digging the new ‘Uber’ event?

In the Jungle

Liv-Glam and K Collection have both excited this past week with loads of amazing offers at a variety of events. Though I am not usually big on a lot of animal print, I couldn’t pass up this leopard print mini for all the spots in the world. I also knew exactly how I wanted to style it, having been craving a safari theme for some time now! I was even able to pair it with these Natasha strappy sandals as well, from the Secret Wednesday sale at the mainstore. And who says a  girl can’t kick some serious ass in heels?

You can grab this dress for 55L Thursday, as well as other styles, each complete with multi-texture change HUD, at the mainstore for an awesome weekend Steals and Deals event.

Talk about puuurrfect!

BOOM @ The Arcade

Hard to believe a week has gone by already for the June round of the Arcade! I just can’t get enough of the craziness of gachas- I have to have them all, including these cute friendship bracelets from BOOM. I so remember these from grade school and the simple string replicas bring back such fun memories of all of the girls vying to get as many on their wrists as they could fit. Oh, those were the days!

Also new this week at faMESHed are these wedge slingback sandals by Eboni Kahn of Hucci. She is really rocking the new releases lately and with my SLink hands and feet being permanently attached to my avatar, I love all of the addons that have been popping up all over the grid! These sandals come in eight mix and match color options and the regular version with cork heels come in ten striped colors.

There is a new event premiering this month called The Kollective. It features an inspirational collaboration between designers and bloggers that will offer fashionistas some fabulous new releases at great prices. The first round begins on June 22, so check out the flickr group for sneak peeks of all the latest releases and for who’s participating in this great event!
