Beach Bummin’

I decided to branch out from my go-to skin creators when I happened upon this new release from Lara Hurley. I saw Iza at Summerfest and though I decided against the darker tones offered, I found myself at the mainstore to see what else was available and lo’ and behold, I met Alena. She’s youthful, fresh and is available for the LeLutka Mesh Heads. Even better is this ‘rose pale’ tone, which I find charming and oh so girly. For my first time wearing a Lara Hurley skin, I have to say I am suitably impressed. The textures have the almost porcelain smoothness that I’ve come to love from Aida, but the eyes- oh, the eyes! They have some amazing highlights and shadows and the slight purple glow that Alena has really sets off my favorite green eyes.

Of course, I couldn’t not show off some more of my Summerfest finds, but I also happened upon this new dress from Tee*fy at N21 and as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be mine. In my eagerness, I wound up paying $L230 for the demo, but after contacting Azure over the mis-labeled demo, all was well. Did I mention that she is a sweetheart? <3

Fresh for Summer

So, even though I’ve been out with an awful cold or some such thing for a few days now, my blogging heart was having some majoy shopping withdrawals. So, I sneaked on in and managed to grab a few great new pieces from the Kustom9 and Shiny Shabby events for one of my favorite, and classic boho inspired looks.

This new hair from Tableau Vivant is also right up my alley, with long, luscious locks in a flowing style. The original version comes with a texture changeable scarf, but I managed to modify it in exchange for a pretty flower crown instead.

The weather here has been insane, already in the 90s! I hope the rest of you are as ready for summer!

Pocket Full of Posies

I’ve been wandering around SL for a few days now in this beautiful, frilly new dress from Valentina E. and my new Glamistry heels that match it perfectly and trying to find a place to take pictures.

I happened upon ‘Done Wiv a Twist’ and landmarked it last week, waiting for the opportune moment to come back and snap a few pictures. The pretty pinks and purples of this sim made today the perfect time.

If you haven’t been, ‘Done Wiv a Twist’ is a beautifully decorated half-sim with a dreamy Asian-inspired theme, tons and tons of flowers and a really pretty chinese lantern display that lights up over the water. It kind of reminded me of that scene from Tangled and then I got all weepy, but anyway- it really is a must see place.

Just a Little Time

I love the start of each new month and the refresh of some of my favorite events across the grid. In fact, every week there are plenty of new releases to be had, and not just from events, either. Though I’ve really loaded up on goodies from quite a few for this post, I’m also wearing a great new outfit from the newly re-branded LaVian&Co.

Though typically I lean towards exclusive, one of a kind meshes, I do make exceptions when items are especially well done and true to their names, Sam and Kim have always delivered just that with great color options and amazing textures. The super generous ladies of LaVian&Co have also always sold their products at outstanding bargains and every time I have someone asking where they can get great clothes at a great deal, LaVian&Co (Liv-Glam) is where I send them.
