Crisp Spring Afternoon



Spring isn't quite here yet, so I put on a cozy warm sweater with jacket before heading out for my walk.

MuggleBorn created the great Bailey Set consisting of sweater and jacket, each with a texture based Hud. you can  purchase these separately or in a fat pack which will include a base Hud. You will receive all colors and all body sizes available.

The pants I am wearing are by Sn@tch and called Scout Floral Jeans. These system print jeans come with layers in  8 colors and an Omega hud is included.

 The Flat shoes I am wearing were designed by .:Closet:. for Slink, Maitreya and Belleza

Image Essentials created these poses and named them, Viper. With 5 bento poses plus mirrors, they can be found at Designer Circle


The Skin Fair 2017 opens March 11th and here's a SNEAK PEEK at one of the fantastic skins that 7 Deadly s[K]ins has created for you! Her name is WEDNESDAY and she comes with soo many choices! Mesh head appliers based on LAQ Trinity head, can be worn with any Omega compatible mesh head ( Catwa Jessica worn here). And comes in 16 skin tones with a hud containing four versions! Plain, lightly freckled, heavily freckled and beauty marks! I have on the heavily freckled version in the chestnut tone. Also making it's debut will be a new mesh body based release. What is new?? Less shadows on the boobs and butt, softer highlights, better fit to mesh body parts such as a head, feet and hands, new nipples, new navel, overall smoother texture. Optional beauty marks, mild or heavy freckles. New applier huds each applier having four options now. No more juggling multiple applier huds. New feet and hands textures. No more cleavage option and optional neck fix. These will also be released in 15 skin tones!

The Little Bat is also at the Skin Fair this year and the lovely Natasha Bento Shape is just one of the items you can find there.

Also by The Little Bat and at the Skin Fair 2017 is the Mia Lips  in system tattoo layers as well as with Catwa and Omega appliers with 8 textures to choose from. Also the Lilly Shadows will be making their debut there also with system layers, Catwa and Omega appliers with 8 textures.

Poppies and Wicker

poppies and wicker 2.png

As I started this blog, I was researching poppies and what they mean to people. The red poppy symbolizes remembrance. Mainly of those that have fought for us. But what about those they fight for us in every day occurrences? Do you take the time to just say thank you to those in your life that fight for you every day?  Those are encourage you and help push you to your limits, helping you thrive to be the best you can be. Take the time today to tell someone in your life thank you and remember why they are in your life. ❤

Keep smiling y’all.

Lona

37zr3.jpg

Catwa will be releasing a brand new bento mesh head at Skin Fair this year. Her name is Lona and she is absolutely adorable. This head is definitely my favorite bento head on the grid so far, and I can’t wait to showcase her even more in future posts. Here is some more information about her:

  • Price: The price has not yet been confirmed, though I assume it will be around the same price as the previously released bento heads, which is L$5000.
  • Appliers: Lona is omega compatible, just like Catwa’s past releases. You will also be able to use previously released Catwa appliers that were not specifically designed for the head. I am using a Catwa applier from Insol in this specific photo.
  • Layers: The head comes with a skin layer and two make-up layers. I am using a liptint by Pink Fuel that utilizes both of these layers. For more information, check this handy tutorial video by Mochi Milena from Pink Fuel.
  • HUDs: The head comes with two HUDs: a Master HUD and an Animations HUD. Strawberry Singh created a video showcasing these HUD’s, as well as showing the way Lona looked with a couple of different appliers. Watch it now!
  • Eyes: The head comes with a pair of omega compatible rigged eyes for your ease. A couple of stores that create omega eye appliers are: Avi-Glam, The Skinnery, Euphoric, Zola and Cureless.

For more information, check out Catwa’s website and YouTube channel.

Lona will be released at this year’s Skin Fair, which will open on March 10th. I highly recommend you try out a demo and apply a couple of your favorite skins before making your final purchase.

I am personally incredibly excited for Skin Fair. Skin Fair was an incredible experience last year and I cannot wait to see what excitement this year holds. I am happy to be an official Skin Fair blogger this year as well and am looking forward to sharing my favorite finds at the fair once my exams are over.

In case you missed it, check out this post where I listed a couple of events that will be taking place this week. That’s all for today, time to head back to the studying desk for me. Happy shopping! ❤

Sn@tch A Ladder For A Pose


Ivey Deschanel of Sn@tch cranks out new fabulousness quicker than I can blog it. Ssshh, don't tell her, we like her pace! My hair and lingerie are just more lovely offerings by Sn@tch. The hairstyle is Annie, and she is long with subtle waves and full bangs. The lingerie is called Wendy Goth Grunge, consisting of a black bustier and panties, with garter stockings in 14 colors. 14!!!!

My heels are by Pretty Things, called Beth. A little bit Goth, a whole lotta schoolgirl? They're definitely cute however you classify them. You can grab Beth at Designer Circle for a nice price, but hurry - this round ends on the 10th.  Tying back in with Sn@tch, I see some of Ivey's lovelies also at Designer Circle, see if you can find them in case I don't have time to circle back around and do a post. <~~Since I typed that I'm really going to try!

It's an Image Essentials' pose! This is a selection from the Vanity Flair set which can be found at the InWorld store. I'm really really excited, the next pose set created by Kay Weston is going to be named after me! I was selected as February's Blogger of the Month for Image Essentials, and so thrilled and honored.

I previously blogged Zen Creations' Earthtone Bedroom set HERE, just a few days ago as a matter of fact. But when I have such a nice setup for a pic (and your partner really likes the furniture too!), that's how I roll - I'm gonna blog it again. ;)

Isabelle

As promised, the next Skin Fair preview is of the newest Belleza skin applier, Isabelle.  Isabelle is made specifically for the CATWA head and will be available exclusively at the fair and has all 7 skin tones, including co-coordinating base skin, 5 brows option, 5 eye makeups, 10 lipsticks, freckles and blush.  Belleza will also have add on packs of 10 eyeliners and 5 color eyeshadow / 10 lipsticks. Both add on packs will be sold separately.

I’m wearing Lona, the CATWA head that will also be available at Skin Fair 2017.  I have the sunkissed tone on and chose the freckles option.  I’m also wearing the Belleza Isabelle shape and separate eyebrow shape….is that not a beautiful face!?  It can be yours (the head’s bento, feel free to tweak it) come March 10th…mark your calendar ❤

Belleza Isabelle applier

Also, The Liaison Collaborative opened this afternoon and it is packed!  When you have a moment, before the craziness of the Skin Fair, pop over and try on a demo of NO.MATCH’s NO.EVIDENCE hair ‘do.  Since TLC is celebrating their 4th birthday, there’s free gifts to be found….make sure to check out the free hair gift, NO.DIVA (unicorn hair!) when trying on your demo!  Also, make sure to look for the gorgeous heart jewelry from Baiastice ❤

Lona

Lona

Another preview of the upcoming goodies at Skin Fair 2017.  Lona is Catwa’s newest bento mesh head and isn’t she exquisite!?  There are no appliers going on here, no add on’s…this is straight up default everything…shape, skin, eyes, lashes….with one of Catwa’s bento lip animations.  I didn’t tweak any of Lona’s shape at all…what you see is what you get…and you can get her March 10th when Skin Fair opens ❤

Need to shop and can’t wait till the 10trh?  The Liaison Collaborative literally just opened and you can go pick up this cool tattoo from Nanika (which also comes in white).  TLC’s  celebrating their 4th birthday, so there are gifts for you to pick up everywhere!   Or perhaps you could pop over to Famished and snatch up this adorable hair from Monso (do you not love Monso’s hair ‘do’s!?) and some Spring-y Tiger Lillies from Heart to warm up your SL space ❤

Next preview?  I’m keeping the head on and adding Belleza’s skin applier made especially for Catwa …. wait till you see it!! ❤

Soul Searching

Soul Searching

So much is going on right now and so much is coming very soon Second life is a hive of activity.

The Pose above and in the face close up is from Something Erotic and called Wingless Angel and is a new release for the Main store.

The Arcade is well and truly into the March round right now and today I am sharing hair from Lamb, shoes from Reign and wings from the Blueberry collection.

Snapshot_016.jpg

My skin is from Lumae and is one of her new releases at The Skin Fair. Ella in her bare best is going to be released her prettiness speaks for itself. In all the normal shades offered by Lumae, with body appliers galore included. Which is still kind of rare for most skin sellers and with multiple brow and cleavage options in each tone.

Snapshot_017.png

The pose above is a pose I blogged previously this month and is a new release in the Something New Store.

The Astrid Dress is a new release by Masoom at We Love Roleplay this month, it comes in a variety of colours and numerous metal options.

So many options are possible with this dress depending on how your dress it up or down.

Back to the garden!

Finally the temperatures are getting warmer and we can get the furniture back out in the garden. Check them, repair them. Or replace them if needed.

I love that style of furniture made of a palette of crates. It is just so perfect for a garden where we want it comfy, rustic maybe and where the flowers play the main role, not the decoration of a porch :)
