Working Hard…

… or hardly working?

I was working it pretty hard (mind out of the gutter, you pervs!) when I decided to take a bit of a siesta and fell asleep on the couch. Gotta get the beach bod ready for summer, you know?

Fortunately, I was able to keep relatively cool while wearing the new lingerie turned workout set by NataPorolo of Tetra. It is the perfect combination of sexy and modern, with clean lines and a soft cotton texture. Perfect for the warm weather!

This set is available at Uber and comes in eight color sets for $L249 each. It works with the Maitreya, Belleza and SLink mesh bodies.

The Spice of Life

The middle of the month is often a flurry of activity, with all sorts of events having opened, or re-opening with tons of new releases. I’ve assembled my outfit after some serious event hopping, then headed over to one of my favorite sims of late to snap some pictures.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

I am so giddy for all of the new releases that come out every October. With Halloween being my favorite holiday and the warm colors of the fall season, there is just so much to blog. I am even more excited that Aida has been releasing tons of appliers for mesh heads lately. Not only the lovely LeLutka head, but also the new Catwa head, among others. Mona is the first release by Glam Affair and available at Kustom 9 in all skin tones and four makeups, including freckles!

‘Jessica’ has been growing on me quite a bit and though I probably won’t consider it my main look (the size of the lips are just too small for me,) I am loving all of the unique skins and looks that one can create with this head.

Magika has also released some new hairs recently. There is even a group gift witches hat version of ‘Darkness Falls,’ which I am wearing here.

Beach Bummin’

I decided to branch out from my go-to skin creators when I happened upon this new release from Lara Hurley. I saw Iza at Summerfest and though I decided against the darker tones offered, I found myself at the mainstore to see what else was available and lo’ and behold, I met Alena. She’s youthful, fresh and is available for the LeLutka Mesh Heads. Even better is this ‘rose pale’ tone, which I find charming and oh so girly. For my first time wearing a Lara Hurley skin, I have to say I am suitably impressed. The textures have the almost porcelain smoothness that I’ve come to love from Aida, but the eyes- oh, the eyes! They have some amazing highlights and shadows and the slight purple glow that Alena has really sets off my favorite green eyes.

Of course, I couldn’t not show off some more of my Summerfest finds, but I also happened upon this new dress from Tee*fy at N21 and as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be mine. In my eagerness, I wound up paying $L230 for the demo, but after contacting Azure over the mis-labeled demo, all was well. Did I mention that she is a sweetheart? <3

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.

Summer Punch

The newest round of Collabor88 features a pallete of bright colors that are perfect for Summer. I’m wearing these adorable shorts and knotted tank from Tee*fy, as well as this windswept styled hair by Tableau Vivant for Kustom9.

I stopped by Celebrities Bay for this shot because of the fun tropical atmosphere of the sim. It’s a great place for pictures and hanging out, as well as a venue to great concerts and tributes bands.

Dark Fairytales

After my last Aladdin themed post and now with the newest round of Oneword coming at me with a fairytale round, I am in heaven! I did decide to go a little bit darker for this post in the form of a twisted Tinkerbell to help balance out my usual lighter style.

This short, impish dress from Dear Deer is so sweet and fortunately for me, comes with a HUD that allows you to customize the pretty rose embellishments on the dress and straps, or leave them off altogether, which I’ve done above. I’ve paired the dress with one of the many new poses by Black Tulip, which helped perfect my dark Tinkerbell in all her glory.

This month also happens to be the first birthday round of Oneword and I am so excited, and so happy for Melissa and all of the hard work and dedication she’s put into this event over the past year. We just adore her. <3 Oneword opened today, so you have a full two weeks of awesomeness to shop before we start getting ready for the next round!

Grab your taxi here!

Cold Weather, Colder Water

Even though I am still traveling for at least another three weeks, I wanted to sneak in on my weekend home and share some hot new releases from the month of October. Even though we’ve less than a week left, I am loving all of the fall and Halloween inspired fashions hitting the grid.

Even more so, the woodsy, lumberjack feel I get from this new outfit from the Spirit Store, as well as hair by Mina and fun poses by the talented Bouncer Criss are definitely getting me in the mood for the cooler weather that is taking forever to arrive down here. In the mean time, be sure to hit up all of the events listed below to get these goodies before they disappear with the last of the warmth this year!
