Hello bunnies, and happy Saturday! And also happy July! It’s really really summer now, and I’m loving it!

But also Hair Fair just opened up! Lots of things to see and buy and do, so let’s just get to the pic and credits so everyone can shop!

Rain, I Don’t Mind

Happy Saturday, bunnies! So I am a lover of sunshine. I cannot handle it if it’s rainy and gray for too many days. But as I was out shopping at Uber last night, I saw a shirt that made me think, “You know… that IS kind of nice.”

Style - Rain, I Don't Mind

Vinyl is kind of a new-to-me store and they’re out at Uber right now with the Walsh sweater. Coffee, Books, and Rain? Yes, please! Now the cool thing about this sweater is that it has a HUD so you have 2 choices of a graphic on your shirt, or wear it plain, and also change the color/print of the shirt underneath. This also has several sizes and is mesh body compatible. Well. Unless you wear some crazy body no one else is wearing. But the mains are there. 🙂

Have a lovely day no matter what your weather is!

I totally blanked on getting the names of all the decor in the picture, but the photo was taken in the coffee shop on Bluebonnet, which is open for people to come check out our home sim. So if you’re super interested in the items, you can come to our coffee shop and check them out! [Wtg, lazy blogger. LOL!]

Instant Gratification

Hi there, bunnies! I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t lose weight easily at all. AT. ALL. I hate getting on the scale after I’ve been so so good and not seeing a big difference! I’m all about instant gratification when it comes to my health because hey, who doesn’t want to feel and look amazing instantly after putting in hard work, am I right? But luckily in SL, instant gratification happens very easily!

Style - Instant Gratification

Paper Arrow Co. is at N21 this round with the Lazy.Jogger pants! They are so super cute and comfy! If you really haven’t checked this store out because they weren’t fitting to your mesh body, it’s time to try them out because they’re doing Slink and Maitreya versions now! Yay!

Have a great day!

I’m More Relaxed On The Weekends, But Don’t Go Thinking You Can Touch My Coffee!

Hey, bunnies! Happy Sunday! Another quick post from me today because it’s the weekend and all I really want to do is relax! I’m still a little under the weather but I always have time for a cup of coffee!

Style - I'm More Relaxed On The Weekends, But Don't Go Thinking You Can Touch My Coffee!

Truth released a couple of new hairs this week! I’m wearing the Anouk hair today. It’s so cute! I’m actually not a big fan of short hair on me [SL or RL!] but this was too adorable not to put on. It’s also unrigged, so you Toddleedoos out there can wear it!

I wore the Blueberry Mia skinny jeans in my last post, but did you know that there are 2 options in the pack? The regular cuff, like I had on in my last post, and a “tucked” version for boots! So I just had to show that yes, you can TOTALLY get them into your boots! Well, depending on the boot, of course, but they worked with these, so I’m a happy camper.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend, especially those of you who have a 3 day weekend!

And Look How Far We’ve Come

Hello, bunnies! I am sooo getting into the fall spirit! Yeah yeah, the sun is blazing outside my RL window and the temperature is 95 [35C for those of you not in the US!], but who cares? If it’s September, it’s fall to me!

Style - And Look How Far We've Come

The Coldlogic team has been working super hard and since they are definitely not people who just rest on their laurels, they have come up with something great! The new Neve line by Coldlogic supports the Slink Physique, Maitreya Lara, and Belleza Isis mesh bodies! Oh, and the standard default avatar, if you’re still not on the mesh body train, but only in standard sizes XXS/XS/S/M. If you’re a size L, let’s face it. You’re probably in a mesh body anyway because it just looks better with all your curves. Neve will eventually replace the Coldlogic brand as they move forward, but you don’t need to update your landmarks or anything.

I’m wearing the Athena dress today and ugh. How much does it speak to my little boho heart? The front dips down in a V so you get to show some cleavage, too. Love!

Happy shopping!

Just A Walk In The Park

The Home and Garden Expo is OPEN!! This is one of my favorite events of the year and I was thrilled to be invited back as a blogger for the third year in a row. The H&G Expo raises money for Relay For Life of Second Life, which donates money to the American Cancer Society.

Funky Junk is part of the Expo this year and I’m loving the Small Garden Park!

Style - Just A Walk In The Park

I’ll admit, I’m the worst at landscaping, so it’s awesome for me when people put together things that I can just throw out and it’s instapretty. There are four sections of this, 3 with trees and one with the little pond that has fish. [There is another version that does not have the pond.] I put this in the middle of a bunch of trees, but since it’s all contained in the brick walls, you can really put it anywhere you want. The Small Garden Park with the pond is 39 land impact [the one without the pond is 30] and currently available at the H&G Expo.

The Home and Garden Expo runs until September 28th.

Sometimes My Tries Are Outside The Lines

So I’m a little bit late for my Saturday blog. I do NOT want to skip a day in my little personal challenge. But I have a good reason today! I got a new computer! It’s lovely and quiet and allows me to run all over the place with my family and hit up events and I was so excited to blog tonight! Okay, so maybe my skills haven’t suddenly gotten better with the new computer, but I got to use shadows without my computer almost blowing up on me, so progress, I say!

Style - Sometimes My Tries Are Outside The Lines

Exposeur is out at FaMESHed this month with The Elevator pose room set! I don’t know why more people don’t do photo sets like this. As much as I love poses anyway, sometimes finding a new place to take picture can be tough. This one has several poses for women, men, and couples. And it was the perfect set to show off my new Moccasin Boots by Reign and my Hipster Bag by Remarkable Oblivion, both also found at FaMESHed this month.

I hope you all had a wonderful Saturday!

Just Take Your Time

I do a lot of inventory cleaning on an almost daily basis. Not a lot, obviously, since my inventory is still pretty massive. But I throw away things pretty much daily as I come across them. A lot of the time, this does mean I’m throwing out something that was made before August 2011 when mesh came out. However, sometimes I find just the right old [vintage?] item deep in my inventory and I feel like it pulls my look totally together.

Style - Just Take Your Time

I really like the new Band Jackets from Cracked Mirror for FaMESHed this month. Being a former band nerd myself, of course the first thing I think of when I think of band jackets is the letter jacket that I wore almost daily, but these are more like uniform jackets. Quite structured, very classic. These come with a short “shirt” inside, and I kind of wish they had a no shirt option to pair up with a longer belly covering shirt, but I do like this a lot.

The vintage item I found that I felt really went with my whole look was the Ginger boots from Shiny Things. They are from 2010 [very old in SL years!] and just sculpts, but I don’t think they look dated at ALL. *sighs* I miss Shiny Things. The store is still up if you want to shop there, though.

By the way, have you been to The Garden yet? If you haven’t, you need to go. I’m standing in the Bozeman Barn by Barnesworth Anubis and is it ever awesome! Big rooms and sliding doors and this fantastic two sided fireplace. It would be great for a winter sim!

Time to hop back into my inventory…or go do some more shopping!

Happy Trails

This is kind of a sad post for me today! This is my last post as an official Collabor88 blogger.

Style - Happy Trails

I have been with Collabor88 as a blogger since the very very beginning when there were just 8 of us. It has been an AMAZING journey and I am so thrilled to have been part of it. But as a blogger, sometimes you have to ask yourself if you’re really doing justice to the wonderful creators who take part in the event every month. My answer was, unfortunately, no. As much as I absolutely adore the event, I feel like it’s time for me to go so someone new can take my place and have as much fun with it as I did!

I wanted to say a huge huge thank you to Drinkenstein Sorbet for starting such a fantastic event, and wish her well as she ends her SL business to go on some RL adventures. And also, a HUGE thank you to all the awesome Collabor88 creators who have allowed me to blog them every month for the past two years. You guys make SL beautiful. ♥

Of course, I’ll still be blogging Collabor88 on my own because, duh, I’ll always want to shop there! 🙂

Keep it basic, b!tches

I’m having a case of insomnia tonight, so I thought I’d do Magenta’s Basics, B!tches meme. I almost called her Skittles, which I guess would be what most everyone else knows her as, but in case you went to her blog and were like “Skittles? It says her name is Magenta! What’s going on?!” then I wanted to save you any misunderstanding.

Um, anyway.

So Skittles wanted to know what our basics are. What do we go to first, what do we not leave the house with, etc. These are mine!

Keep it basic, b!tches

[Btw, I barely did a single bit of body editing to this pic, which makes me itchy. I did smooth out that jutting angle in my calf, though. I’m not totally crazy.]

I’m pretty simple, if that hasn’t been obvious in this blog. But when I’m not blogging, I’m even more simple and it’s not uncommon for me to stay in an outfit for days if I’m not blogging, OR switching back into a “more comfortable” outfit right after a blog post. I don’t know why. :-p

Hair: I wear Truth hair pretty much 90% of my SLife. I’m most often in his Swedish blonde, but lately I’ve been doing the Fairyfloss color. Someone asked me why recently, and the only answer I can give is that it makes me happy. My second favorite hairs come from Wasabi Pills, and I have to admit, I am really liking the new textures from Exile. But Truth hairs fit my head the best. This one is Haven and it’s the one I reach for almost immediately these days.

Skin: I flip flop between Pink Fuel and Belleza most of the time. I’ll admit that I don’t change skins too often. When I find one I like and that I feel is very ME, I’ll stick with it for a bit, although I do enjoy demoing loads of skins. Currently I’ve been in Kumi from Pink Fuel because of the mesh hands from SLink, which I wear pretty much all the time now. They have the appliers for the hands, and I’m waiting patiently for the feet appliers. Which leads me to…

Feet: I’m in Gos Boutique feet pretty much always, the flat ones. I don’t like walking around on the arched feet very much because it reminds me of Barbie dolls and it’s odd to me. It sounds funny to say, but I really like my av to be comfortable! Since it’s the easiest to match Gos feet to my skin, I’m in his feet and shoes pretty much always for now.

Eyes: I’d be hard pressed to find eyes I like as much as I love IKON eyes. Way way back in the day, I loved Miriel eyes, and Miriel made a blue color that was bright and gorgeous. I could not find anyone that could make that color again! But then along came Ikon and he made some blues that are bright and beautiful, so I’m a customer for life.

Lashes: I wear two at the same time, actually. Ryker Beck made some tattoo lashes a while back and I wear the Dramatic ones. Then on top of that, I have some super old alpha lashes from the former skin store La Sylphide. I love these lashes so much, I don’t care that they’re probably about 4 years old.

Tattoo: I’ve always had a back tattoo in SL. I’m not sure why, but I just always have. I found these back wings from HUZ for free on the marketplace and I just really like them! I think they’re very well done. I AM looking for new wings, though, so if you know of any that don’t look stupid or don’t include sleeves or writing, let me know!

Underpants: I almost always have underpants on these days because with mesh skirts, you just never know who cut the alpha so your lady garden is on display. My faves are the Pop Unders from BOOM. I rarely wear a bra and just put one on for this picture.

AO: Currently I’m using the Daydream AO from Akeyo. Ulaa bought it for me as a gift when it first came out, but if I want something a little simpler without as much movement, I switch to the Akeyo Rookie Female AO which I believe is free or $1L on marketplace.

Shape: My shape is my own. I was a perfect standard size medium but I think there’s some vanity sizing going on because I realized a couple of months ago that I fit better into a small and I hadn’t changed my numbers at all. So I just went with it and adjusted a few things to fit into a small better. I love my shape a lot, I think it really suits me. My face is tweaked pretty much weekly, and any time I get a new skin, I move things around. I’ll never never never be one of those people who thinks that changing their shape must obviously kill a kitten. I love to tweak it to see if I can make myself look a little better or to fit into something I really want to wear.

Thanks for a fun meme, Skittles!! ♥
