Summer Joy

I think everyone knows that I am TOTALLY a summer girl. Nothing makes me happier than to see those temperatures rising and wake up to sunshine every morning. Luckily for me, creators are coming out with awesome new stuff to keep this summer girl happy in SL!

Style - Summer Joy

Jane has new mesh goodies for us! The Sweet n Low jeans are really great because they’re casual enough to wear with sandals [or no shoes at all!] but can be paired up with your favorite heels for a night out! They do have 2 length options, too, just for this reason! What I really like is that they are lower rise, BUT not so low that you need to worry about sharing the goods if you bend the wrong way. The Casey halter was just made for these jeans because it is flowy and the hem is up enough that you get a cute glimpse of belly. I know these halters will be in my summer rotation because unlike some halters I have similar to this, it doesn’t cut into my pants.

Funky Junk has this awesome Summertime Dock out at the Home & Garden Expo. It comes with the lanterns, but if you want the furniture, you can buy it separately at the Expo. The dock comes with sits, and a few length options. Both the dock and the furniture are RFL items, so buy them and you’ll be donating to a great cause!

And hello? Do you see my hair? How is the new Lola Summer mesh hair from Wasabi Pills just NOT the best little look for summer? Braided pigtails and a hair kerchief? Love! Total love!

Okay, off to go enjoy the sunshine!

Meet Me In The Garden

I can’t say I’ve ever been much of an outdoorsy type of girl. But I do appreciate the outdoors if it’s nice and clean. The Songo Courtyard Garden by Barnesworth Anubis for this month’s Collabor88 fits the bill just perfectly!

Style - Meet Me In The Garden

175 prims of lovely, this skybox is just gorgeous for if you choose to not live in a regular house, or if you just need somewhere for pictures. It comes with a few furniture pieces to match. Love!

Also on my “Omg I love it!” list this week, the new Gish dress from coldLogic! As soon as I put the demo on, I KNEW I had to have it! The belt is separate so you can use it in other outfits. I thought the new Kirby hair from Truth was totally perfect for the style of this dress. Both the dress and the hair are mesh, so if you’re STILL holding out on buying mesh… I don’t even know what to tell you. :-p

I think it’s time to relax a bit in the garden.

My Big Fat Gypsy Blog

I’ve always been a little enchanted by gypsies. Of course, when I think of gypsies, I think of Esmerelda in the Hunchback of Notre Dame. I absolutely love My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, but well…they’re not exactly Esmerelda. Although I guess those girls do dress like some SL people! But I got to get my Disneyesque gypsy on with this new dress from Wishbox!

Style - My Big Fat Gypsy Blog

Wanderlust is an awesome gypsy style costume! You have three options with the top. The cropped version I’m wearing here, then a longer version that comes with both long and short sleeves. It also comes with a bandana for your hair. I don’t wear a lot of flexi things any more, but you better believe I was having a blast dancing around in this outfit and watching my skirt swirl!

Go to Wishbox now and get your own dress to dance in!

Fiesta!

If you’re looking for something fun to do for Cinco de Mayo and you don’t have a chance to go out for margaritas, why not stop by the sim opening for FD Decor!

Style - Fiesta!

FD Decor is having a party from 2pm – 4pm SLT to celebrate both Cinco de Mayo AND the opening of their new location! There will be some exclusive freebies given out, including this really cute Boardwalk Bench. I am really sad that I’ll have to miss the party [Saturdays are never good for me!] but you all should go and hang out and report back to me! 🙂

So Livable!

It’s almost time for Culture Shock!!! Funky Junk is participating with the very awesome Vista house!

Style - So Livable

Style - So Livable, Back

Style - So Livable, Interior

Just one shot of the inside, because I haven’t gotten all the other rooms totally decorated. 🙂

The Vista home is 2 bedrooms/1 bathroom, and has a generous sized living room and dining area, plus a kitchen and a great back patio. There are also two gardens that just give the home an extra bit of pretty. What I really love about this home is that it’s very livable! It’s not ultra modern, or country chic, or all kinds of fancy pants. It’s a nice, normal, comfortable home, and I love that! The Vista fits on a 32×23 footprint and is 290 prims with the gardens, 220 without. It’s copy/mod/no transfer.

50% of the proceeds from this home goes to Culture Shock’s chosen charity, Médecins Sans Frontières. Be sure to check out the THREE matching accessories for the house that are at Culture Shock and are 100% for the charity. Great stuff for a good cause? Sign me up!

Overjoyed!

Sometimes I’m so overjoyed with all the new wonderful things out there, my fingers get away from me and I use too much photoshop. Sorry!

Style - Overjoyed!

How cute are these Frill Shorts from G Field?? You will be able to find them at Culture Shock, which opens on Friday! These cuties ARE mesh, so c’mon you holdouts…get with the mesh!!

Frooti put out a pack of Jump For Joy poses for Stumblebum this round. Very cute and very fitting with the Jubilant theme!

Still so much shopping to do, and yes, I’m overjoyed for that, too!

All Kinds Of Shopping!

With all the events, I definitely need my strength, so I went to buy groceries! I know the husband will be happy. We almost never eat!

Style - All Kinds Of Shopping!

Actually, this pose is from the Market Day set by aDORKable Poses that will be sold at Culture Shock! So cute!

Aura has these cute Ruffled Boho Tops for Stumblebum! They’re mesh!! And they go great with the recently released Cuffed Denim Shorts from Mon Tissu. I have been searching for shorts like this my entire SLife!

For FaMESHed, Gos brings us the Triumph boots in Denim! They have the option to have the leg part up, or rolled down like I have it here. The boots come in both male and female versions. Also at FaMESHed, you can get this cool Ketama ring from Maxi Gossamer! It’s color change, and I’m wearing it in silver and white. It attaches to your ring finger, but since that’s where I wear my wedding ring, I moved it to my index finger. There’s a bigger one for your right hand, as well.

Time for a snack and then for more shopping!

Get Ready!

Oh my god, y’all. OH MY GOD. There are SO many amazing events happening in May, you’re going to be simply run off your feet and your head will explode in happy!! I don’t even know where to start, so I’m just going to start talking.

Style - Get Ready

I don’t have all the SLurls for you yet [or at least, I’m not allowed to give them out yet] so don’t think I’m deliberately holding out! I will update with SLurls just as SOON as I get them/am able to post them.

FaMESHed starts tomorrow, May 1st, and it’s going to be a new monthly event for MESH! All original mesh stuff, no templates!! Yeahhh baby! You guys know how much I adore mesh, so I’m super excited! This is NOT a discount event.

Also starting tomorrow is the Summer Beauty Festival! This festival is all about MAKEUP! I just love makeup, don’t you?

Style - Get Ready, Closeup

There’s been events for so many different things, it’s great that the makeup artists are getting a chance to shine!

Starting on May 4th [May the 4th be with you! LMAO!], we have Culture Shock! CHIC Management always puts on some fabulous events, as you all well know, and this promises to be amazing! I was out there earlier and the stores that have set up… Well folks, you’re going to LOVE it.

There are more events coming up, so stay tuned!
