May Flowers

There’s sooo much cute stuff out for Summer right now that it’s ridiculous! And with it being my favorite time of the year- of course I must have it all. Fun little rompers and frilly shorts, bento goodness and even new mesh heads! Genesis Lab released Sofie for the Epiphany and I am in love. She is so cute and fresh, perfect for some fun in the sun playtime! The bento phone comes with HUD, seven selfie poses and a whole slew of colors and accessories.

I’m taking my first selfie of the Summer at ‘Summer Trace.’ It’s a beautiful, beachy sim with lots of photo ops!

Fall Favorites

New skin from Glam Affair, sweater dress and coat from Addams and lots and lots of boots make for a perfect fall day! Just add a dash of pumpkin spice and some stunning scenery and I could spend all day outdoors!

You can find the new Milu skin by Aida Ewing at the Gacha Garden, as well as cozy laced boots from N-Core for faMESHed. Even Truth Hawks has introduced a new hair out for the Truth VIP group. There is a L$265 group join fee, but you are guaranteed a new hair release (fatpack, baby!) the first week of every month. I just so happen to be wearing Deja, the November release and it’s fabulous!

Rose in Bloom

So many new releases have hit the grid this month, that I will let the credits speak for themselves. But, I can say that I am absolutely loving all of the rich fall colors! Sim holders all over are even changing seasons to match and Izzie Button has really done a great job in updating her mainstore. She’s invited everyone to come on over and take some pictures and I can say that it is definitely worth a look.

What is your favorite part of Autumn in SL?

The New Black

Despite it’s neutral status, I’ve always found black to be the hardest shade to stylize. With concepts such as the ‘little black dress’ or that ‘black goes with everything,’ it’s not an easy reputation to live up to. Not only can its use be completely overdone, but if you’re anything like me- you can’t seem to settle on one particular style, so your end result winds up looking like your favorite inspiration board on steroids.

Fortunately for me, there are tons of great pieces released every day that help with my choices, which I am wearing here, but somehow, I think I’ll still tend to forget that black is supposed to be simple.

What’s your favorite way to wear this iconic shade?

Fight Song

So much is going on in this months round of events and new releases. Where to start? Genesis Lab has released both Keily, a new mesh head and Charlotte, a fresh and lovely skin that is available at Shiny Shabby. I am wearing them both here and though Keily on her own is stunning, I love the delicate arch of the brows that Charlotte offers.

Tetra has also released another new line of sexy lingerie for Uber, and I love it! The textures are fantastic and I am thrilled that the design again lends its hand to a more sporty structure, which just so happens to pair perfectly with some of the many new releases from the Arcade.

It seems like it has been forever since the Arcade was last here in June, but alas… it’s back! There are some totally great designers and themes this round, including much in the way of sports and even the much loved stuff for all the guys out there! The Arcade also has returned with two sims for cam-shopping, as well as exclusive player rewards for every 25 plays. Even better, the event runs through to September 30th, so you have plenty of time to play and trade for all of your faves!
