Summer Chill

Everyone who knows me, knows how much of a hopeless gacha addict I am. In fact, it’s so bad, that my inventory blows up by at least a thousand items each time I visit an event. I definitely need some serious help, especially with the Arcade being a few short weeks away.

With that being said, shoe gachas are my downfall and so of course, Essenz has released another fabulous heel for the Gacha Garden. Quito is sleek and strappy and definitely a rockstar style that can be dressed up or down with jeans or in my case, a summer dress.

While it still feels like summer here in Florida, I’ve brought the image of chilly weather to me with this new knit scarf by Petit Mort. You can find it at Sad November until the 22nd.

For the November round of Kustom9, Tetra has expanded its line and Nata’s first attempt at mesh hair is stunning! “Pineapple ” is a medium-length, off the shoulder style with soft, flowing waves and tons of options! The start of this new line comes in 60 colors and 5 packs (light, dark, red tones, balayage, color ombres.) The textures of this hair are soft and very realistic and I, for one, cannot wait to see more future releases!

Meet Ella

It’s been quite a while since League has released a new skin, but this week- a new beauty has arrived. Say hello to Ella. She is sultry and fun and is available for Catwa’s Annie head. As you all know, I wear Dyana a lot more than Annie, so I’ve included two pictures to show you how enchanting Ella looks on both.

I’ve always been enamored by Leagues perfectly arched brows and the shape and texture of lips and Ella definitely embodies both of those qualities with crisp textures and a flawless complexion.

I also love the variety each pack offers. There are seven skin tones to choose from and each HUD includes four brow colors or a no brow option, five eyeshadows (plus au natural) as well as eyeliners, lip stains/glosses and freckles! You can also use the Catwa HUD to change or enhance each of these features.

Arranmore

I stopped by Arranmore today to get in the Halloween spirit and was amazed by how detailed and well… spooky the place was- complete with haunted mansion, deserted buildings and lots of creepy sounds. If you visit, I defintely suggest grabbing the flashlight offered at the landing point, switching your graphics over to the sim windlight and exploring in all of its spooky glory. You won’t be disapointed!

As for new releases today, Just Because has this lovely, texture change skirt at N21 and Nena Janus of League released these amazing strapped heels at her mainstore. I love, love that they are for the mid-feet- we haven’t seen nearly enough of those lately! The skirt comes in two version of fourteen colors each and the pumps are sold in singles, mini packs of four, or fatpack with twelve shoe and sixteen strap options.

Lookbook #5

Is it me, or has anyone noticed how difficult it’s been to get into events lately? faMESHed, Collabor88, Uber… I’m seeing a theme. While I am glad to see some of my favorite events garnering more traffic, I still find myself resisting the urge to pull a Walmart SL version of Jeff Dunham. Just saying.

On the flip side, this month marks the first anniversary of Shiny Shabby! It’s amazing how fast time has gone by. I was able to pick up some really great finds when I did manage to get in, though I’m sure I’ll be heading back for more soon. But even if nothing at the event catches your eye, be sure to stop on by anyway. Most of the creators have put out some fabulous free anniversary gifts for the occasion, including this coffee tumbler from Vale Koer. What fashionista could possibly go without her morning cuppa?

Also happening, is an extended version of Exposeur’s sale. The wonderful RubyStarlight Writer explains about her situation here and why she has extended her sale, and as an owner of two cats myself, I can only imagine what she must be going through. So, if you are looking for some really great poses and props for a good price, please stop on by the Exposeur mainstore and show your support Ruby and her babies. <3

White Walls

Okay, so I finally caved. I love mesh heads in SL and though I tried the first round of those from LeLutka and was suitably unimpressed by the style of the heads, I have to admit that the second batch was more geared to my style of avatar. After some debate, I decided on Stella, whom I felt had a more fresh and playful look to her, as opposed to the others. I like the curvature of the chin and jaw much more, the definition and the flirty set to the lips and the presence of- lo’ and behold, cheekbones! Nevertheless, I am having a lot of fun playing with the HUD, which offers so much more in the way of options and at a seriously smaller price tag than that of the Mesh Project.

Also new this week are skirts and cropped tops from ColdLogic, gorgeous and modifiable belts from Molichino and an expansive mesh pose prop from Exposeur for the 3rd Birthday Round of faMESHed.
