Hello Fall

The first day of Fall is tomorrow!

Hard to believe it’s already here, right? Although I am a Summer girl at heart, I do love the Autumn season, especially when all my favorites start arriving. Pumpkin spice, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas- the list is endless! I also happened to have a whole lot of fun jumping in piles of leaves after Petey raked them all up. Don’t tell!

I also happen to love the layering potential when it comes to cozy cool weather clothing. Bonbon has this adorable plaid skirt for their Arcade gacha, which happens to pair perfectly with the new boots from Decoy.

Glam Affair also has a great new skin out for Powder Pack. I don’t subscribe to this one, but this skin is definitely worth giving it a chance. Eloise has elegant, soft brows and the contouring option on the HUD really highlights her features. I did stray from my matching lipsticks and instead went with the Crush set from League, which adds a bold pop of color.

Who’s ready for the new season?

Love Cara

Arcade Nation

It’s 2016. It’s March. And it’s that time. Another round of the Arcade! March and June are definitely my favorite rounds, because I love spring and summer and all of the amazing creations that come out to celebrate these seasons.

I also love whimsical, and there is definitely a lot of that going on this round, including stunning pieces from anc, 8f8 and half-deer, as shown here.

Also one of the best parts of this round, is the addition of a third shopping sim! Not only is there the original Arcade sim and Gacha Galley, but ‘The Arcade 2’ is also available as an exact replica to the original, which allows for a  greater chance of getting in early. And we all know how that can be…

As always, the Arcade Photography contest also begins and features some squeal-worthy prizes for the winners, all of which can be seen here. Good luck to all who enter!

#pumpkinspice

With all of the fall and harvest themed items at the Arcade, I couldn’t not continue where I left off in yesterday’s post and do something reminiscent of pumpkin and cool weather and the warm colors of fall. Growing up in the North, that is definitely what I miss most about this time of year- the change of the seasons and the excitement over a hot pumpkin spice latte while snuggling beneath layers of warm clothes. Of course, I don’t miss the snow one bit, so I have to compromise somewhere.

What are your favorite things from this time of year?
