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

Rose in Bloom

So many new releases have hit the grid this month, that I will let the credits speak for themselves. But, I can say that I am absolutely loving all of the rich fall colors! Sim holders all over are even changing seasons to match and Izzie Button has really done a great job in updating her mainstore. She’s invited everyone to come on over and take some pictures and I can say that it is definitely worth a look.

What is your favorite part of Autumn in SL?

Desert Oasis

Things are heating up with the new round of Uber! The theme is Sahara and the new releases this round are definitely perfect for the hot Summer months. I’m wearing this new dress from Tetra, and I absolutely love the light, airy fit. It’s available for the Maitreya and SLink bodies and what’s great is, you can choose to wear your alpha or be a bit naughty and enjoy a slightly transparent version by keeping it off.

Either way, this versatile dress is great on its own, as a beach cover-up or even just to lounge around by the pool. The dress comes in twelve solid colors, or thirteen (pineapple print) if you buy the bonus fatpack for just L$999.

Summer Vacation

My ‘summer vacation’ starts in just one week, and I am so excited! I look forward to all of the visits to the beach, late nights and the Fourth of July festivities I have planned. I can’t wait!

Some of the items from the Arcade were just made for the perfect summer vacation, including the new cuddle camper from Consignment and lovely ‘under the stars’ set from {what next}. With only five days left until the end of the event, hurry and stop by the Arcade before it’s too late!

What is your favorite part about Summer? Do you have any plans in the coming weeks? I’d love to hear them!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

I love Christmastime!

In fact, I just love the holidays in general- the festivities, the laughter, family and yes… the shopping!

I also happen to love decorating, which is why I haven’t been available much lately, as the holidays have taken me by storm. But, with that being said, I had to stop in and spend some time decorating the home front with some of the newest, and most festive goodies currently available at the newest round of the Arcade.

By now, the majority of the sim lagging crowd has dispersed and so a smooth cab ride over will take you to some of my favorite holiday treats and items shown here, including new puppies from OMEN, classic Christmas bears by Boogers, the traditional advent calendar from Trompe Loeil and lots of amazing decor pieces from some of my favorite designers.
