Midnight in Paris

I’ve been up for trying some new stuff lately, like this short, pixie-style hair from Monso for the newest round of faMESHed. Shorter is definitely not my go-to style, but I couldn’t resist the playful and youthful appearance of this look. Tattoos have never really been my thing either, but ever since I entered the world of mesh bodies, I love they way they look and those from White Widow are quickly proving to be some of my favorites. ‘Midnight in Paris’ is available at Shiny Shabby and provides a lovely contrast to my new do.

Let’s Bounce

So, I was at the newly debuted interactive sim by Bryn Oh today and boy, did it scare the hell out of me! I love it! ‘The Singularity of Kumiko’ kind of reminds me of that movie Silent Hill in a very creepy, but glued to the edge of your seat kind of way. I don’t want to spoil any of the awesomeness, but basically, as you wander your way under the cover of darkness and the recommended windlight settings provided, you’ll find yourself haunted by a fascinated story… and an evil squeaky bunny with hooks for hands that will kill you. Seriously. One minute I am snapping some pictures and the next he is running around me in circles with eerie flashing lights and the next thing I know, I am home.

It’s the first time I have ever died in Second Life. O.O

Anyway, be sure to visit Immersiva if you haven’t already- it is definitely well worth the trip!

At the very least, I was dressed to the nines for that bit of unexpected terror in this new Liv-Glam mini dress. It’s another one of those fantastic releases from Sam and Kim that have a HUD for just about every color you can think of. Though it took me the better part of an hour trying to decide among the 60 different pantone options, I decided to go Chanel with black and glam it up with some gold accessories, especially these new Sandals from Hucci, that I got for the 21Shoe Event yesterday. Nice, huh? I really hope Eboni makes this particular style in the full range of colors. It is by far my favorite pair!

Oh, and did I mention that this new semi-exclusive, Red Label release is available at the mainstore for just 70L? I’d die twice for the kind of deals that I can only seem to find at Liv-Glam.

Santa Baby

Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me
I’ve been an awful good girl
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

It’s almost here! Christmas, that is! I’ve been having loads of fun playing with all of these decorating goodies from the Arcade this round, including this full and festive Santa’s workshop from Alouette. I was even able to dress in the spirit of the little helper with this mini sweater dress from BOOM and amazingly detailed hat from Remarkable Oblivion. And don’t forget the boots: a group gift at the N-Core mainstore!

Merry Christmas everyone!

xoxo,

Cara

Cold December

It’s been quite chilly here in the south this past week- that is, by our standards, and so I thought that this new release from Liv-Glam would really warm things up! Secret Wednesday’s at the Liv-Glam mainstore offered this elegant lace jacket (including HUD for three color options) as well as a fashionable slew of warm winter fashions! If you haven’t checked out the ridiculously low prices every Wednesday (and really, every other day of the week!) then what are you waiting for?

Whenever it is cold outside, I want nothing more than to snuggle in my bed or on the couch where it is warm. So naturally these new release cushions from Ma Vie and pillows from oOo Studio for the Arcade are an absolute perfect way to really hone my cuddle skills. Each cushion comes equipped with 14 relaxing poses and 12 styles to collect and the pillows all come equipped with a color-changeable HUD and 9 different poses (separately.) There are only 12 more gacha days left in the December Round of the Arcade, so grab these awesome pieces before it’s too late!

Be Glam. Liv-Glam.

The heat is definitely on as we enter into the final week before the first official day of summer. I am so excited, even though for Florida that means sweltering heat and hurricanes. But, when you’ve got a cloudless blue sky, crystal clear water and some sort of tropical drink in hand, who cares, right?

This new release Edulica dress by Samantha Jones (Liv-Glam) leaves me with that tropical getaway impression that has me looking forward to summer all year long! I was able to pair it up with this beautiful floral headpiece by AlaFolie that I picked up at last years vintage fair and have not so patiently been biding my time for the perfect opportunity to show it off. Also new this week are these Lydia Slingback heels from Ingenue for the June round of Collabor88. I love that so many creators are getting on board and coming out with mesh addons to the SLink feet, which are by far my most favorite feet in all of SL. ♥

Oh, and in case you haven’t heard, the Collabor88 event is under new management starting this month and with it come a lot of great new ideas, as well as a new blog! Make sure you check it out, as well as the great catalog of items updated each month.

Fashionably [Dead] Sensitive

I had a lot of fun styling these overalls by Fashionably Dead for Collabor88, that I wanted to splurge a little and go back to my roots of collage-making in photoshop. So, I used a Lady Gaga song I happened to be listening to at the time and whipped up something funky to go with my mood. You really can’t beat all of the new releases out and between Collabor88 and the Arcade, which is still going strong at already two weeks in, you’re sure to find some great accessories to show off to all of those paparazzi out there!

Bizarre Dandelion

Zodiac has so many great new releases for the Gemini round! I’ve already blogged several great pieces on the Hottie Cooterati blog, but I wanted to show off another piece that I picked up today! As if it isn’t obvious what my favorite color is, I just had to have this Dandelion One Piece from Valentina E. It’s so bright and cheery and goes perfect with the Bizarre Flower set from LaGyo that I’ve had in my inventory for ages.

Eaters Coma also has a great new release in two versions, one for standard breast sizes and also one for Lolas. I love the thought that Kumii put into her design because as much as I love to wear longer styles, I have trouble finding ones that fit when I do actually wear my Lolas appliers. So, if you are definitely sporting a full bosom, do check out this new hairstyle from Eaters Coma!

I’ve also been taking a lot of pictures at my home sim lately as I can honestly say it is about 90% complete! It’s been under a constant remodel for almost a year now and will never be finished enough for me, but I love that it allows me to create exactly the backdrop I need for whatever picture comes to mind. I almost always settle for something with a water or beachy feel to it, but I love going out and seeing what everyone else comes up with! What are your home sim preferences when it comes to decorating? I’d love to hear all about it!

Another Brick In the Wall

Part II of my faMESHed first birthday series include a long list of things I just couldn’t live without this round! This outfit from NYU features a blouse with color changeable bow via HUD and super sexy hotpants! I love hotpants as they can be worn so many different ways. Throw in a high waist and I am giddy with excitement!

I decided to go a little schoolgirl punk with army girl tights from Worldwide Industries and these combat boots from Gos. Of course being the total nerd that I am, I had to pose at Platform 9 3/4 at the Mischief Managed sim!

Bizarre

With so much going on in the Second Life world of events, sales and fairs, it is almost impossible to keep up! After receiving the honor of blogging for The Hottie Cooterati Experience and finally integrating myself in, I am better able to get back to some regular posting on the home front!

These highwaist shorts with hive texturing at the bottom from Shi were just too cute to pass up. They are available at Limited Bazaar and though I am often too late to get to the limited quantities of items before they are sold out, I was lucky enough to grab these up before they were gone!

Also huge this month was the Arcade and with only a few hours left before it officially closes (until June) I just had to sneak in one last shout out with the Epaulette Set from Gizza.

Last but not least is Pose Fair! Definitely one of my dream events! ♥ There are so many great new releases from some of Second Life’s top pose creators that you don’t want to miss this! I was at Just Visiting and really loved playing around with poses from oOo Studio and Picture This!. Pose Fair runs until April 14th, so you still have plenty of time to stop on by and snatch up some of the great deals available to us!

Flamingos Part II

I’ve been having so much fun with the new flamingo theme at Collabor88 this month, that I just had to share another one of my favorite pieces from the event, the Flamingo sweater from Nylon Outfitters. I am wearing the blue sweater, but it also comes in red, yellow and pink, as well as a plain dots version for those that aren’t so excited about the pink bird.
