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

‘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.

The Arcade – June 2014

I am having a blast with my new Arcade items, especially this new ‘Summer Treehouse’ release from Snips & Snails. Unless my memory fails me, S&S is a first timer to the Arcade and, I must say, has set the bar high for future appearances. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing a lot more from this creator in the events to come. Of course, it wouldn’t be the ultimate playground, without this huge assortment of fun decor, props and furry companions to help get the party started.

Since there are way too many things that I couldn’t not use, here is the general list of who you see in my snapshots, as well as the shopping guide for this round so you can check out all of these great designers, and more!

Essentially Vogue

I love when I see things with my name in them, so naturally, I have to have it. Even better is when it reflects my style (or part of it!) This new Cara dress from Liv-Glam is a one-shouldered mesh dress. For the daring fashionista, it can be worn without the provided bra and panties, but I decided to play it safe and wear them for modesty’s sake. I wanted to glam it up into something elegant and sophisticated- something Sex and the City, perhaps, so I went with a high ponytail, an edgy peep-toe and flashy shades. The dress comes with a HUD that allows you to choose between six colors and is a fantastic piece to dress up or down.

House of Fox has a Runway Essentials set out for the Arcade that provided the perfect backdrop to my outfit. The complete set includes a dressing room, vanity with bench, assorted makeups, fashion clothing rack and cosmetic chair. There is only one more week left of the June round of the Arcade, so grab your taxi before it’s too late!

Rain or Shine

‘Rain or Shine’ is this month’s theme for Collabor88, and I am loving it! There are so many adorable new releases this round that I am stuck, so I decided to put a few of my favorites in one post just in case I don’t have time to come back for a part two. Every since Allegory Malaprop of Schadenfreude came out with her Eala Dress last August, I have been dying for her to release another! She did not disappoint! The pattern is super sweet, with delicate, hand-drawn rain-clouds/trees on a lacy overlay. And yes, that is a matching parasol! ♥ This Clouds Into the Woods dress comes in five ultra pretty colors (with matching parasols!)

I am [very] slowly getting into the home decor aspect of blogging. It is still a work in progress for me, but the past couple of days I have really been inspired to add more to my sim, especially when I saw these new releases- the Carmela Pergola from DIGS and the Rain or Shine set from LISP. I am obsessed with anything beachy and fresh- white, light wood, shabby chic, water and lots and lots of light! So, chances are if it is my style, I’ll buy it even if I don’t need it!
