This time of year most people are looking forward to the cooler climate, the changing colors of the trees, and planning for fall and winter activities. Not me. I guess I’m weird, as autumn falls around us I start dreaming of warmer places, the sun, and god forbid, no snow. After living most of my life in the northern part of the United States, I can tell you a white Christmas is definitely overrated. I do have to admit, however, fall brings some super cute fashions.
First up Phoenix released an all new, gorgeous hair with not 3 but 9 style options. There are 3 styles and with each style comes 3 bangs options. This hair is spectacular and I am so in love with it. Join the inworld group for 99L and get access to the VIP exclusive HUD included in every hair pack.
I have this amazing new, off the shoulder sweatshirt from RIOT. This has been released for the all new 4Mesh that had its opening day today. Gaia comes for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza and an all new bento fit for Slink and Belleza for bento hands. It comes in 30 solid colors and if you choose to grab the fatpack you’ll also get 9 exclusive patterns. An added bonus is the ability to change the hem colors via the HUD.
I wanted an absolutely perfect bottom to go with this top and after scouring through my inventory I remembered that Blueberry had recently released a brand new denim skirt. This skirt comes with a ripped and non-ripped version comes with optional belt and panties. This skirt is available in 19 individual colors or go and grab the fatpack to get them all!
I needed the perfect shoes to go with this outfit and then I remembered that Breathe had released a brand new set of flat shoes for The Chapter Four, so of course, I headed on over and grabbed the fatpack. These shoes are awesome and you can control each and every part of it to customize your look perfectly, I loved how well this went with the sweatshirt.
I need a great pose for fall and Foxcity had just what I needed, out at The Chapter Four right now is two brand new, bento pose sets in the half price room, that’s two fatpack pose sets for the price of one!
I had a fairly difficult childhood, not worse than some but definitely not the best. My father was abusive, my mother, although she tried was a drunk and ended up losing custody of us when I was 6. When I was 12 my father remarried and my grandparent’s thought it was best we go live with him. I don’t know if they forgot about the times he tried to kill my mother or what but we packed up and moved to Texas, a whole other world compared to small town Idaho. It only took a few months for the abuse to start and although most of it wasn’t physical the emotional and mental abuse that rained down on my head shaped me into the person I am today. I struggle constantly not to hear his voice in my head calling me fat, lazy and stupid, telling me I will amount to nothing. I usually do pretty well but there are times that my insecurities rear their ugly head, causing me to question everything. This happened over 20 years ago but I still fight every day to win an unseen battle with an abusive man. So, I’m sorry, not sorry, if I don’t fit into the box you made for me.
So Lybra is at the newest round of FaMESHed with this amazing dress, I honestly couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Available in 11 colors with no fatpack available this dress is absolutely stunning, from the super low-cut front to the spine exposing back. I seriously had a really hard time choosing a color they are all so exquisite.
The dress was the easy part, choosing the rest of my look was not so much. I always worry about what shoes I want to wear and then I saw these fabulous boots from Mutresse available at Uber. It’s a 20 color mega pack and is fit for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza. Each part of the shoe can be colored individually to make them match your outfit, I chose black even if the light makes them look slightly off. I fell in love with these booties at first glance.
Once the look was decided it was easy to pick a pose and Image Essentials has an amazing set of poses out for Square1 running from September 7 until the end of the month. Trendy Girls is a set of 5 bento poses with mirrors and is on sale, exclusively for Square1 for only 300L.
I was at Minimal checking out the availability of a gacha I was blogging and saw this set of gachas, I’d completely forgotten about them and I don’t know how I did because they are so much fun. 8 Individual backdrops can be yours, there are 7 commons and one rare and they are fabulous. I chose the record store backdrop because I thought it went well with my look.
This hair from Phoenix is just amazing, with the all new Phoenix style HUD you have not one but three hair options. All color packs come with the exclusive VIP HUD and if you join the inworld group for only 99L the VIP HUD activates and you have access to an amazing set of rainbow tipped hairs.
7 Deadly Skins is at The Chapter Four with all new Arnica. Arnica is 6 tone skin based on GA.EG bento mesh head Barbara but I’m showing you how amazing the Omega applier is on Catwa Catya mesh head. This set includes both face and body appliers in one easy to use HUD. Be on the lookout for all new skin tones coming from 7 Deadly Skins, they are not included in the Arnica box but they are still pretty amazing. Right now, if you join the inworld group for 225L you can get in on the Lucky Chairs, every 30 mins the chairs will change letters and will give up to 40 people the brand new skin tones absolutely free, this event only runs for a total of 20 hours so get on over there and grab your new skin tones.
Mesange is back at On9 with an amazing new set of eyes, available in 15 colors, individually or as a fatpack, Artic eyes will set you apart from the rest. The slightly cold, cloudy appearance of the eyes is amazing and you can wear them alone with the included system layers or with your Omega friendly eyes. Don’t have your own mesh eyes yet? Don’t worry, Mesange includes a free set of mesh eyes to use with the HUD as well.
Lelutka Powder Pack came out on September 1 and it’s not very often I use one of the appliers from it on another head, but Zibska includes not only the Lelutka applier but the Omega applier as well, giving me a little bit of free rein to show off his wonderful make-ups on whichever head I choose. This month, Zibska included two eyeshadow palettes and one lipstick. I chose to share the Paise eye makeup set today. Don’t forget, if you haven’t done so already to reserve your September Catwa Powder Pack as well. It is 1500L for a pre-order or if you wait it doubles to 3000L.
I wanted something to accentuate this stunning dress so I started searching the Marketplace for necklaces or chest piercings, I came across this lovely necklace from Swallow, it comes in long and short versions for male and female as well as a color change HUD that includes 6 metals, you can also turn full bright on or off.
Having a crush is something everyone goes through in their life, from childhood until death. Having a crush on the person you’re in a relationship with is even better, because you know the crush is more than that. Every day I find another reason to crush on my sweet boyfriend. I’m not sure how I got so lucky to land a relationship with the boy of my dreams but I did. It really sucks when you have plans for a night out with your crush and they fall through, nothing like doing laundry instead of making out with your crush huh?
This is honestly one of those times that I don’t know where to start, everything I’m sharing today is so amazing. So I guess I’ll start with the background. Minimal was at the last round of The Epiphany with another set of Illusions backdrops, there were 9 in the set, one rare and 8 commons and they are absolutely incredible. The colors pop, the lights shine and you won’t be sorry if you pick up these fabulous backdrops.
Foxcity does some wonderful bento poses, which means you do HAVE to have a bento enabled viewer and for absolutely best results you must also have bento hands. These poses are available at Limit8. It is a set of 6 poses +mirrors available as a fatpack or individually. The fatpack is the way to go because you get an extra exclusive pose in the fatpack that you can’t get anywhere else.
This hair is brand new from Phoenix and is available at the brand new round of FaMESHed which opened on September 1. This hair includes the all new Phoenix style HUD and comes with a total of 4 hairstyles. It comes in all the standard colors as well as an exclusive VIP HUD, want those colors? Join the inworld Phoenix Hair Group for only 99L and gain access to the exclusive HUD, 5% in store credit and frequent group gifts.
I love Blueberry and honestly, I don’t blog her stuff regularly, not because I don’t feel I can blog it well or that the stunning items she creates aren’t worth my time and effort, it’s completely the opposite to be perfectly honest. Blueberry is so popular EVERYONE wants to blog her, so for days after a release Facebook is inundated with blog posts featuring Blueberry, and although I love seeing them, I want to stand out from the crowd. Every once in a while though, the perfect item goes with my style and I must include it however. Today is no different, this top is out of this world. The HUD has so many colors including exclusive colors just for the fatpack, it comes with a top and dress option. If I could ask for one thing to be added to this outfit it would be a long skirt to wear to more formal location, because it truly is a stunning piece of work.
I am finally to the item that inspired this entire look, these brand new jeans from RIOT. Rcade created a set of men’s jeans for her debut round of FaMESHed, women loved them so much she went ahead and made a female version of the jeans as well. Winona comes in 2 fits, long line, jeans you can wear with your heels or skinny, which you can wear with any kind of shoes, or simply go barefoot. There are 20 denim colors available individually or as a fatpack, it also comes with an optional belt in 28 colors. She thinks of everything I swear.
Lelutka Powder Pack released on September 1 and I’m showing it on my newly, redesigned Lelutka Cate bento mesh head. I cannot get enough of Powder Pack, whether it’s for Catwa or Lelutka. Some of the best skins, makeup, tattoo, etc designers include amazing items for you all in one convenient pack every month. The pre-release price of either of Powder Pack is 1500L, if you don’t get the subscription price and wait to see what’s coming for the month first then you will pay 3000L. All previous Powder Packs are available on the Marketplace or in world location. First up from this month’s Powder Pack is this stunning skin from Pumec. This skin set comes in 7 skin tones with 3 brow options for each tone. There are face appliers, body appliers, and system body skins to help things blend perfectly.
I chose the no brow option of the lovely Pumec skin so that I could show off the brows included in the Izzie’s pack this month. I love these natural looking brows and come in 15 colors. You seriously can’t go wrong with these lovely brows. Izzie’s pack also includes eyes and lipglosses, which are not featured on this blog.
Mudskin released an eye pack for this round of Powder Pack, they will only work with Lelutka mesh eyes and include 15 colors to choose from, or get funky and mix and match your eyes. Each eye has a separate applier so if you feel like it, you can wear two different eye colors.
#adored included a brand new set of lashes that I couldn’t wait to share, these lashes are so much fun, they have cute little adornments attached to the end of the lashes. This particular lash has tiny stars, they are so much fun!
Arise is back with an all new makeup palette that includes eyeshadows and lipsticks (not pictured) The shadows are so much fun, 6 colors to choose from and bright and vibrant and ready for your fall looks. This set is made for Lelutka only.
The countdown to total solar eclipse has commenced, the tiny little town where I live is expecting 10’s of thousands of people to descend upon it. For towns in this valley that have between 500 to 1000 people at most, some places as low as 75 people the immense amount of people is hard for us to fathom. Only one problem to overcome now, the fires. There are so many fires in the outlying areas surround this valley that you can’t see the mountains for the smoke, they are now afraid we may not see the eclipse at all *sighs*. Well, good old Mother Nature (and idiots that don’t know how to put out camp fires) are great at ruining well-laid plans. Times like this make me wish I was anywhere else.
Gacha Garden opened and the moment I saw these all new poses and props from Nantra I knew I had to have them. You have a chance to win 1 of 8 different backdrops and pose sets, 2 rares and 6 commons. Plus, play enough times and you get the Seed of Inspiration prize. That’s 9 pose sets in total.
Lybra is also at Gacha Garden with an awesome set, 22 commons from bikinis to tops and skirts, 1 set of rare shoes with a HUD and the Seed of Inspiration prize, this super cute dress with included HUD. You will want to collect all of them for an amazing combination.
This amazing hair from Phoenix was originally released for 2017 Hair Fair and is now available at the main store location. The long, curly locks are stunning and the HUDs available for purchase will guarantee that you’ll find a shade that’s right for you. I just love this hair and haven’t actually taken it off since I put it on 4 days ago.
7 Deadly Skins is doing 31 Harvest Days, group members get a special gift each day and right now you can join 7 Deadly Skins for only 100L. I am however not showing one of those skins today but a gorgeous skin called Honey available at Aloha Fair, which closes today August 10, so you still have time to grab this stunning skin. It was made to fit the LAQ Gaia head but as you can see the Omega applier works flawlessly with my Catwa Catya bento mesh head. Available in 10 different tones in total with 4 eyebrow options for each tone.
On9 opened yesterday and with it comes these stunning eyes from Mesange. I never feel I can go wrong with eyes from Mesange, the colors, vibrancy and utter craftsmanship of eyes from Mesange are sure to stun and make people remember you. Skye is not discounted except for one color, see if you can find it. These eyes are unisex and come with mesh eyes, system eyes and an Omega applier for your own compatible mesh eyes.
Zibska was once again in the July Catwa Powder Pack and if you haven’t pre-ordered your August Catwa Powder Pack, now is the time. Pre-orders cost you 1500L but if you wait until it’s released to see what you get you’ll pay 3000L. I have never been disappointed with my Powder Packs, the designers pull out all the stops to bring you amazing skins, makeups, hairbases and so much more. The items found in the Powder Packs will never be available anywhere else, they are completely exclusive to Powder Pack.
I decided I wanted some facial piercings and so I started scouring the Marketplace for some bento face piercings and found this amazing set from Code-5. 6 different metal textures are built into the HUD and there is a total of 14 piercings, the HUD has a show/hide options and they are rigged for Catwa Catya only. I’m in love with this set and haven’t taken it off.
Today is one of those days that I am having a really hard time getting motivated. Woke up late, had to drag me into the shower, coffee isn’t kicking in fast enough, you know the routine. On a good note, however, I love my new job. The stress level is so much lower than with my previous job, the benefits are out of this world, I finished all the computer training yesterday and I should be in action today! I am a little nervous, they throw so much at you at once I am worried I’ll forget something, but that’s why I have my team right?
I love Reve Obscura poses and recently blogger applications were opened, I had to make a very hard decision of whether to apply or not. I already have 2 pose makers that I blog for and Reve Obscura poses are super affordable so I have chosen at this time to pass up the opportunity to apply to blog for this fabulous pose maker and continue supporting him when I can (which is a lot, to be honest). This pose is brand new and super cute, it is bento enabled and does require at the minimum a bento viewer, for the best results you do need bento enabled hands as well. You can pick it up on the MP or inworld for only L$50, it’s a real steal!
The backdrop is just one of the eight common backdrops to be won from Minimal at The Epiphany, which if you haven’t been get there because you only have until August 5 to get there and participate in this quarterly gacha event.
MOoH! is at Designer Circle with this very sexy lace top and you have until August 4 to get over there and grab it for only 99L. This top comes with a HUD with 18 colors so you do not want to miss out on this amazing deal.
I love this skirt, all-new and available from Lybra at Shiny Shabby this month it comes in 10 colors with a belt HUD for each color. It’s a great skirt and pairs so well with just about anything. This is Maitreya exclusive.
This gorgeous skin is from 7 Deadly Skins and is available at the Gothic Garage Sale until August 8. It comes in 7 skin tones and is just sexy. I love the sprinkle of freckles. I chose to pair it with the freckled body applier from 7 Deadly Skins but it does come with the body skin built into the HUD so it’s easy to use. No guess work. There is also a non-freckled version.
I love Mesange eyes and Wicked Game, the all-new release for Men Only Monthly is no exception. I love that her eyes are unisex and so unique, the colors and tones not like anything you’ll find anywhere else.
Amara Beauty had a new skin pack in July’s Catwa Powder Pack and although I’m not featuring the skin in this blog the lipstick pack that came with it was perfect for the look I was creating, I paired it with the stunning lipstick from Zibska, also available in this month’s Powder Pack for a beautiful classic look.
I’ve had the pictures for this blog ready for 2 days but something keeps coming up or I wake up too late to write a good blog and I don’t want to just throw something out there. I have a standard I’ve set for myself and I try to maintain that. I’m now in the final countdown for my current job, 4 more days of dealing with the problems and stresses of this job. 10 days off and then off to a new adventure! I can’t wait, I’m ready for “normal”.
I went to N°21 when it opened on the first and saw this amazing jumpsuit, it’s so sexy and comes in several colors with a HUD for a paint-spattered version as well, so you get two jumpsuits with every purchase or you can grab the fatpack and get them all plus a special fatpack edition.
Essenz is at Gacha Guardians with this amazing new set of shoes. With 10 commons and 2 rares to win you won’t be sorry. The lovely shoes come with a HUD to change the sole from tan to black and a metal change option with gold and silver.
Image Essentials always has the best poses for what I need, this set was released for an event, which is now over but the great thing is you can always get them afterward in the main store! Bold and Brassy is a set of 4 bento poses with mirrors.
Hair Fair is now open and goes until July 16 and trust me you do not want to miss out. Phoenix is there with 3 all new hairstyles and this one is amazing. It comes with a style HUD to make it look like 4 different hairs, that’s like buying one and getting 3 free!
Powder Pack for Lelutka released July 1 and this amazing skin from Amara Beauty is in the pack. The HUD has all 12 Amara Beauty tones included in 3 eyebrow options as well as Omega body appliers. Didn’t pre-order the Powder Pack for 1500L? You can still get your hands on it for the full price of 3000L either inworld or on the Marketplace.
Mudskin is also in the Lelutka Powder Pack with an amazing new set of eyes, make that 3 new sets of eyes. The stunning colors are vibrant and fun and work with Lelutka mesh eyes, included with your Lelutka mesh head.
So there is a brand I’ve never heard of included in this month’s Powder Pack but I can honestly say I fell in love with the stuff they included in the Powder Pack. They included a set of eyebrows, lipsticks and lashes (not pictured) as well as eyeshadows and moles. It’s fabulous.
Indulge Temptation is at The Avenue this month with an awesome new set of bracelets. There are 6 different color options to choose from with 10 metal options for each and at a 35% discount for each set you can grab them all!
I love this song because it’s telling you it’s ok not to be like everyone, that you can be different and it’s just fine. Too often in this world, we’re told we’re not good enough, that we need to be more like person A or why can’t you be like so and so? It’s alright to be different and it’s okay not to follow the crowd. More girls need to know that.
You know who really helps you be yourself, at least in Second Life? Riot. Seriously, her line of handmade, original mesh clothing is just amazing and I love this new tank top. There is two version of this tank top, the dress version with optional panties and the loose fit version that works with pants. The tank top comes in 28 color options with 6 additional colors for the fatpack. This tank top is available at Limit 8.
Foxcity released this amazing set of poses at Tres Chic, there are two complete sets of poses called Effortless and you can buy them individually or as a fatpack. If you do grab the fatpack you get an exclusive fatpack pose with each set.
This location is one of my favorites in all of Second Life. Almost 4 years ago I wandered into a little-known club and found a family, Club Crash is a lesbian-friendly club with live DJs, events including live singers, contests, a beautiful sim to wander around and so much more.
I love this hair from Phoenix and although I have blogged it previously I wanted to show you what else you can do with hair from Phoenix. Every hair she makes comes in a bunch of color options, including this pastel set. I thought I’d have a little fun and show you one of the stunning colors available in the pastel pack.
I paired this amazing hair with the all new hairbase from Just Magnetized, available in the June Catwa Powder Pack, this hairbase is for Catwa only and comes with a HUD that includes 8 colors. The Powder Pack is 1500L on pre-order but after the release you can still pick it up for the full price of 3000L.
I paired these amazing lashes with an all new eyeshadow from Indulge Temptation and a stunning set of eyes from Mesange. Going Retro is a brand new set of eyeshadows from Indulge Temptation and is a set of 10 metallic based shadows available at Lost & Found. The awesome multi-tone eyes are from Mesange and is a mini pack at The Hidden Chapter during The Chapter Four. You can get this fantastic mini set of 5 eyes for only 150L during this occasion.
I completed my whole, stunning look with a fabulous shape from West End. Made specifically for Catwa Catya mesh head, this shape is perfection. Completely modifiable as well to adjust the look to suit you fully.
I will be completely honest and tell you, these shoes are the reason I put this whole look together. Moda released these fabulous platform sandals for Kinky Event and I just had to have them. They are absolutely gorgeous and only 499L for the entire pack.
ueshaWith the latest terror attack in London, there are questions swirling around in my brain. Why is there so much hate, why do people have to be so cruel? What did those people do to earn this horrific death? Absolutely nothing is the answer, this is the sins of the father visiting the son so to speak. I wish I could just make peace and friendship a thing, get rid of all the hate, racism and bigotry that is in the world. I wasn’t raised to hate, I was raised with respect and love and these tales of terror just really make no sense to me.
I didn’t start this blog with the intention of voicing my thoughts on the horrors around the world, but sometimes you just have to get it off your chest. On a positive note, I was scrolling through my Blogotex dashboard yesterday, the new feature allows you to see all your designers, open applications, and rejections in one place. I applied to Lybra, never expecting to get accepted because let’s be honest. I never think I’m going to be accepted, it’s how I keep going. I had been waiting to see who Lybra had chosen as a blogger since I knew it was coming fairly quickly. I scrolled to the spot where my open applications were and it was gone so I immediately scrolled to the rejections and it wasn’t there either. I start looking through my list of designers and there is Lybra, I about had a heart attack! I am so excited and honored to blog for such an amazing brand.
Limit8 is still going on right now and Lybra is there with two creations. Milly is the non-limited dress and comes in 10 colors or a fatpack with 16 colors. This dress is so cute with the lace overlay skirt and I couldn’t wait to put it on and show it all to you. The Limit8 version is called Gabriella, it has 16 colors and is completely limited. If you want the Gabriella you have to go get it now before the event ends.
1313 Mockingbird Lane is at Vintage Fair starting June 9. The Princess PURRse gacha has 8 rezzable and 8 wearable versions. The rares are the clear plastic that you can modify if you are comfortable with your editing skills. To be on the safe side Tequilla is willing to trade you a copy version for your transfer version so if you make a mistake you can still have your awesome purse.
I’m a backdrop junkie, I will admit that and when Uber opened I had to go grab these amazing new backdrops from Minimal. This will be the third of four backdrops that I have included in my blog, I really do use them all the time! The underground set is 4 different, grungy, urban-inspired backdrops and as always they are AMAZING. You CAN buy them individually but why would you?
Phoenix is killing it with the hair selection and this one available at Tropical Summer is no different. It’s a short bobbed hairstyle in the back with long tendrils framing your face in the front. Available in all normal color packs with a regular, plus version and fitted mesh version that works with physics for the bounce you can’t go wrong.
Les Fest started yesterday and ends tonight. This two-day event is to celebrate the lesbians, bisexual and pansexual women of not only SL but the world. Tons of events, as well as shops, are happening right now and there is a place for kids to hang out as well. I was honored to be asked to share some of my photographs in the Gallery area alongside some of the most amazing photographers I know and one such photographer, Lizz Avon also has a store called Blushes Boutique. She made this amazing pride eyeshadow, available for purchase in the shopping area of Les Fest for only 99L. There are 3 colors built into the HUD. I love this eyeshadow so much and I am happy to let my PRIDE show!
The next two items kind of go hand in hand in my mind. West End is at Cosmopolitan with an all new Daenerys Targaryen look alike shape. Daenarys is my favorite character in GoT and so I was super excited to blog this shape. This is exactly what it looks like out of the box, West End makes such amazing shapes. This is ONLY for Catwa Catya bento mesh head only, any other heads it will not look right, try a demo before purchase.
Since I was wearing the Daenerys inspired shape I wanted to have the smooth, creamy complexion that is also known to Daenerys so I chose this stunning skin from 7 Deadly Skins. Luka will be available eBento starting June 15 and is for Omega Face and Body. It is an all in one HUD in 8 tones. I chose snow because of it’s super fair complexion.
