Mint Chocolate

Not only is plaid the go to pattern this season, but I didn’t realize how much I would love the mint and brown combination of it until I tried on this new dress from Tetra. It’s available in 15 colors at 288L$ each , or you can buy the plaid pack with 10 options for 688$L. Each version also includes a transparency option for up to 20%.

I haven’t worn my Simone bento head in quite some time, until Glam Affair released Aradia, for Access. I tried her on my usual Greer and though she still looks lovely, I have to admit that Simone really is a perfect fit. While she was never my first choice before now (the base lip shape just didn’t do it for me,) I will definitely be wearing this head/skin combination more often! I mean, look at those lips!

What are some of your favorite mesh head/skin combinations? I’d love to see them!

Love Cara

Plaid, Please

It’s sweater weather! Well, in theory. And definitely not here in Florida. But for me, September is the start of it all! Addams has released this new loose sweater in assorted color packs (solid, plaid, ombre, splotch) and the tones of this particular pattern are definitely rocking the Fall 2018 Pantone color palette. I’ve really been on a plaid kick in RL and so I went straight for that pack. I’ll admit that at first, I was iffy on the red and purple together, but it totally works and adding the new studded boots from Reign really added to the ‘wow’ factor.

Glam Affair has also released a new skin for LeLutka Heads. I am wearing Trecy in Tone 6. I still miss my old America tones, but I am really enjoying the variations in the new tones for seasons, as well as all of the new features. Can you say, hello contour!? Anyway, check out these lips on Trecy! As soon as I saw the ad, I was hooked. She is definitely my new favorite! What do you think of the new tones?

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

The Arcade has rolled out all sorts of new releases for September! I am even more excited that there are a lot of wearables this round, as well as a good mix of Summer and the soon-to-be Fall gachas.

The title of my post so perfectly describes my RL lately, extremely busy, but you’ll see lots more posts coming soon! On top of that, Hurricane season is upon us and while we’ve been lucky here in Florida so far, I hope all of you on the East Coast stay safe! <3

Golden Glow

I’ve got tons of new stuff to show you guys today! To start, I just have to say that I am sooo excited it is already September! As much as I am a Summer girl at heart, I love Autumn as well! I think it’s because here in Florida, the weather is still pretty hot straight through to the end of the year. With that being said, on to the newness!

Glam Affair has been pumping out one release after the other. New skins are out for just about every event, including Level, where you can find the gorgeous Gaia. I am wearing her on Greer and she has the perfect, bow-shaped pouty lips.

Tetra released this new bikini for Collabor88 and though I missed reporting it here by a couple of days, I still wanted to show off the sexiness! I mean, who isn’t in love with anything high-waisted? You can find Cryssie at the mainstore!

And finally, these sexy platform sandals from Essenz can be found at the Vanity Event, in the full range of colors!

Welcome to the Jungle

Living in Florida, one kind of has to enjoy the tropical side of things. For me, it’s all encompassing. Tropical, jungle, beachy, you name it. The colors, the vibe and the feeling of relaxation I get when I’m surrounded by the nature of it all. Even my homes in both worlds are tropical inspired!

With that being said, it’s the 7th anniversary of Collabor88 and I am completed tickled by the ‘Rainforest’ theme of this round. With extra designers to celebrate, I found tons of gorgeous new pieces for my already overloaded SL inventory.

Osmia has released a sexy summer bikini with optional on/off sleeves and the top provides the perfect pairing to the shorts from Belle Epoque. Tropical rings from Astralia and my headpiece from LaGyo are a match made for the islands and added the perfect pop of red against all of this lush greenery.

I am also loving all of the new releases from Glam Affair. ‘Apple’ is available in the mainstore, and the fierce and thick brows are a statement all on their own.

Love Cara

Ice Cream Dreams

I had a pretty crazy week at work and so I didn’t have much of a chance to post before the end of my week. I always feel like I am behind when it’s been too long between posts, but of course we have to take the good with the bad, right?

Ever since I picked up the new props for LeLutka mesh heads, I haven’t been able to put them down. In fact, they were the first items to go into my ‘favorites’ folder that is included with the new Firestorm update. You can read more about that here.

The ‘Oral Fixation’ line is available at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, where you can pick up the animated versions of a lollipop, bubble gum, cotton candy and yes, even ice cream. As you can tell from the HUDs shown below, there are so many options for each treat, including color changing parts, messy face details, multiple animations and static poses.
