Summer Loving

With temperatures in the high 80s and a few beach days already behind me, it’s Summer here in Florida as far as I’m concerned. Everyone who knows me, knows that Summer is my favorite time of the year. Short shorts, a summer glow and my favorite chair in the surf is really all a girl needs to enjoy this time of year.

Cielo from Moss & Mink has totally hit home with a new tufted chaise and oversized pouf, available at faMESHed. It’s seriously perfect for my favorite Summer activity. My Osmia and Navy & Copper pairing have me all warm and bubbly inside over the matching sweet mint of the these stripes and headband. I’m in love.

I also went a tone darker with new Glam Affair skin Zoe. I love the fierce eyebrows she’s sporting and the way this ‘summer glow’ highlighter from Mai Bilavio compliments her pouty lips.

Rogue

I tried the new Genus Project bento head when it first came out and for as long as I fiddled with and tweaked my shape, I couldn’t seem to get it just right. Now, as I’ve been wanting to incorporate another mesh- take two. I started experimenting with various skins and makeups and finally ended up with this stunning combination, and one of my new favorite looks.

Roxy is by Glam Affair and was actually released back in July, around the time that the brand underwent some major changes in their skins. I am so glad I went back and found her because as you can see, she is perfect. I did pair the look with the the nude lipstick from the Jessica gacha by Genus, but it really ties the whole look together.

If you haven’t at least tried a demo of this mesh head, you should. While it is still in it’s Beta stage you can grab the full product for 3,000L$, with a free upgrade to the future full version. If not, the full version with end up costing you 5,500L$. As I’ve always been a huge fan of Genesis Lab mesh heads before this change, I think that this price is a steal. There was even a recent update on 10/31, which includes:

  • Neckline issues as well as tinting options
  • Skin tinting options
  • Hide button for the lacrimal
  • Two sizes of the main HUD
  • Separate eye move/resize texture options

Of course, while it is still going through the beta stage there isn’t as big a market for Genus appliers just yet, but you can still find some skins available at a few stores, including (not a complete list) :

I’ve totally had some Latin fever going on this Summer. I was watching the second Dirty Dancing movie just the other day and of course the hit song by Camila Cabello has been lighting up every other station since it’s debut. I can’t seem to escape it.

So I’ve been looking for an outfit that could feed this Latin heat and of course, Tetra and Ison had to go and collaborate on this gorgeous new top and skirt combo. It definitely makes me want to get up and salsa.

In fact, I think it would be great to see a whole lot more collaboration from designers for well… Collabor88. Makes sense, no? I’d love to hear who you think should do a collaboration together!
