Chillax

I don’t know why I waited so long to adopt this new outlook for my SLife. I am having a blast! I still never thought I would have ever joined an RP-style community, but I am so glad I did. Not only have I already made some incredible friends in the last few weeks, but I’m also having all sorts of interesting adventures.

I’ve worn a lot of casual stuff lately as I wander through town not getting into trouble, but I really wanted to show off these new sneaker-style booties from Scandalize and Ariana dress from Cynful. They both have a similar tufted/quilted sort of pattern on them that go great together. I’ve actually worn them for quite a few days, I’m afraid my neighbors might start questioning my hygiene.

In any case, it has been nice to take a step back from blogging. Don’t get me wrong, I still love every moment of it. But not having the deadlines and getting to post at my leisure is, admittedly, really nice. Of course, I couldn’t help but apply to blog for an event that ya’ll know I’ve <3’d every year. So, stay tuned for some Summerfest ’20 inspired goodies coming soon!

Soul Searching

I love everything about the water and I find myself so fortunate to live in a place where I am surrounded by it. There are endless stretches of beach, piers and seawall within walking distance and one of my favorite things to do is sit on the edge of the wall and watch the sun set over the water. Even in SL, there is a unique charm in finding places that give off that same tranquil feel.

If you’re looking for a home in SL, I’ve always felt that it should be a place that is both versatile and beautiful. The Soul2Soul sims are a cluster of themed locations with scenic landscapes and available rentals. I frequent them quite often and even though I don’t rent one of their parcels, the locations are still amazing places to explore and hangout.

Just Smile

I went out and did some exploring today, scouting for some new hang outs and hopeful scenic backdrops and lo and behold, I came across Kaelyn’s ‘It All Starts With a Smile‘ sim. I’ve been frequenting this destination on and off for gosh, the last seven years or so and I was excited to see that it hadn’t gotten lost in the ether that so many other SL sims seem to do.

When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by the woodsy atmosphere as it is what I just recently moved into over at Cedar Creek. So naturally, I spent some time exploring and finding all the nooks and crannies among the trails and beautiful waterfalls. I was also surprised to see that IASWAS has expanded it’s venue to include eight privately leased parcels. The fact that there is still a huge portion of the sim for guests to explore earns mucho kudos.

All in all if you are looking to rent a parcel on Eventide South, your best bet is to join the inworld group and wait for something to open up, but something tells me that openings might be few and far between. Perhaps a second sim could be a possibility in the future? Nevertheless, even if you can’t grab a rental, IASWAS is still worth some time. Also, be sure to check out their website for current events and a bit of fun.

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) :
