Our Weekend Beach Getaway


Taken at night to show you this fantastic glowing beacon which calls to us to run for the beach tonight. I absolutely love the great items here from the Aloha Fair July 28-August 11.

Starting with the great lighting (the reason this picture is taken in the dark), we have these Flamingo Neon lights, which come in 4 different colors, I am showing off the blue and the pink ones here. Created by Boutique 187, they will certainly  light the way with a new twist on the classic flamingo. Exclusive at the Aloha Fair , these are  100% Original mesh and resizeable.


Turning the lights on up, shown in The Kapa'au Salvage Bungalow by Adorably Strange Wares, which is shiny new and can only be found at the Aloha Fair . This is a 2 level building with a back deck and arbor.


Adorably Strange Wares also created another great exclusive. The Mahina Shower is available in White and wood version with animated on/off shower water, 8 single and 6 couple animations. It can only be found at the Aloha Fair 


And yes, another Adorably Strange Wares exclusive is the Pau Hana Hot Tub. This seats 2 avatars, and comes with 8 single and 6 couple animations. It includes animated water, steam and even fire. Found as well only at the Aloha Fair

Boutique 187 also has another exclusive at the Aloha Fair . Some great Surfboard Wall decor which are 100% Original Mesh and come in 4 color choices.

Check out these The Lilikoi Plantation Collection Gacha Items in the following pictures, another exclusive at the Aloha Fair ! Also by Adorably Strange Wares, the collection includes the following prizes to be won:


1. Ceiling Fan- Touch On/ Off Fan Blades, Touch On/ Off Light
2. Chair - Seats One, 12 Single Animations
3.  Hibiscus Planter - Each Plant has Touch Texture change, 5 flower options

Morning is overrated, I don’t have to get up this early anymore but I don’t find time to blog otherwise so I choose to get up before the birds but today, today is a coffee day. I’ve gotten to the point in my blogging career where I take and edit pictures one day and then write the blog another, usually the next day but you know how RL is, sometimes it gets in the way of your best-laid plans.

ChicModa released a brand new dress and choker for the anniversary round of Cosmopolitan. Cosmopolitan has been bringing you amazing items and deals for 5 years running and this round has some unbelievable goodies for you to grab. The dress comes in 15 individual colors and a fatpack with a frill and ribbon color change HUD for each dress, the choker is a free gift and you can see it more clearly in the close-up photo.

Dress (new): ChicModa – Mae Dress and choker – Cosmopolitan Event

Marketplace

I needed the perfect shoes to complete the look of this gorgeous dress and I remembered that Breathe was at the all new round of FaMESHed, available in 18 individual colors for all mesh foot sizes, each shoe comes with a HUD to change the lace, metal and sole or save time and money and grab the fatpack.

Shoes (new): Breathe – Natsumi Heels – FaMESHed

Marketplace

I can’t get enough of the backdrops from Minimal, I own all 3 sets of the Illusions backdrops and this set from the current round of The Epiphany, ending August 5 is just as amazing as the other 2 sets. 9 different backdrops are available for you to win, 8 commons and 1 rare. They are just amazing and help set the tone so quickly and easily for you.

Backdrop (new): Minimal – Illusions 3 *9* – Marketplace

This pose was released by Something New for an all new subscription called Flash Shot. This subscription is different from the rest because it is poses only and is only 500L to pre-order. Pre-orders are available from the 1st to the 14th of every month with the release being on the 15th of each month. After the 15th you can still get past boxes for only 1000L. The bowling ball is NOT a part of the pose and actually comes from one of the bowling games in SL, but it worked out too perfectly not to use it.

Pose: Something New – Miss Congeniality 1

This hair from Stealthic was released for Hair Fair and is now available at the main store location, as always it comes with a style HUD that includes 4 hair styles and you can purchase an alternative tint HUD to color your hair any shade you’d like. It is just absolutely beautiful.

Hair: Stealthic – Genesis Blondes

Lelutka Powder Pack was released on August 1 and the included items are just out of this world. Pumec is back again with a gorgeous skin called Lena in 5 skin tones, it also includes the body HUDs for each tone. Also included in the pack but not shown is a shape, eyebrow shaper and base skins for the body only, there is no face on the base skins.

Skin (new): Pumec – Lena March – Lelutka Powder Pack

Avi-Glam is in this month’s Powder Pack with Lure eyes and lashes, 12 eye colors with a Lelutka and Omega applier as well as a set of mesh eyes and HUD plus 4 amazing eyelash options are included from Avi-Glam.

Brows (new): OHeMO – Powder Pack Brows – Lelutka Powder Pack

I will admit the next item took some doing to get the look I wanted. SlackGirl included a set of eyeshadows and eyeliners and I wanted to wear both. In order to get this to happen since they are both defaulted to the eyeshadow layer of the Lelutka head, I had to go in and turn off the routing on the HUD. Once that was done I was able to route the eyeliner to the blush layer and then the eyeshadow to the eyeshadow layer. This created a super unique look and allowed me to show you both appliers from SlackGirl.

Eyeshadow (new): SlackGirl – Priscila Eyeshadow – Lelutka Powder Pack

Eyeliner (new): SlackGirl – LowLine – Lelutka Powder Pack

Last but not least from this month’s Powder Pack is a beautiful set of lipsticks from The Face, also included from The Face is an all new skin and eyeshadows which are not pictured. There are 12 lipstick options included.

Take My Hand And Show Me Where We’re Going


Touch my skin and tell me what your thinking
Take my hand and show me where we're going
Lie down next to me, look into my eyes and tell me
Oh, tell me what you're seeing

So sit on top of the world and tell me how you're feeling
What you feel is what I feel for you

Take my hand and if I'm lying to you
I'll always be alone, if I'm lying to you

See my eyes, they carry your reflection
Watch my lips and hear the words I'm telling you
Give your trust to me and look into my heart
And show me, and show me what you're doing

                                       ~~ Take My Hand, Dido
