Chillin’ With Books

I don’t always wear mesh clothing. I do probably 95% of the time these days, but sometimes, you just can’t beat some nice texture layer clothing, like the cute Denim Vests from BOOM for Stumblebum, and these lovely LaceBack tank tops from The Sea Hole.

Style - Chillin' With Books

Barnesworth Anubis came out with a really gorgeous skybox for this month’s Collabor88. The Stockholm skybox comes in both a furnished and unfurnished version. I just adore the bookshelves!!

If you use the unfurnished version, the new Laura living room mesh set from MudHoney is just the perfect set for the skybox!

Style - Mudhoney Laura Living Room

There are many cute pieces in the set, so you’re sure to love putting pieces of it in your own home.

And the livin’ is easy

Another Collabor88 post! This month’s round is so amazing, I almost can’t stand it.

Style - And the livin' is easy

Kyoot brings us the very pretty Whitehaven Beach Dress, which is partial mesh. For those of you who claim that mesh doesn’t fit you, these types of dresses are a great option because the mesh “flap” works so much better than the typical prim flap. I love the lace texture work on the front, and the Garbo Graduated combo necklace from Maxi Gossamer pairs up with this nicely.

Trompe Loeil always does such great mesh skyboxes and the Sunbleached skybox is no exception. It’s very well made and simply gorgeous! Plus it will only run you about 60 prims, so if you’re looking for a summer home or just a place to get away, this is a great choice.

Collabor88 is open now, so head on over!

Together In Paris

I just love the beginning of a new month because I know that it’s almost time for a new round at Collabor88!! April’s theme is “French New Wave” and, as usual, the designers are putting out some great stuff!! But let me suggest that instead of going on opening day this time, wait a couple of days because with the Easter holiday and people going to visit family and such, not everyone is going to be able to put out their items by the 8th.

Style - Together In Paris

The Sea Hole has a great new mesh dress called Parisian Glitter. It’s simple, but you know that’s my favorite kind of dress because you can dress it up or down in many ways. There are also matching accessories you can buy, like the bracelet, earrings, and cigarette I am holding. You can strut around in your new dress in the Paris Penthouse skybox that Barnesworth Anubis has put out! It comes with the backdrop that you can see out of the windows, or no backdrop if you prefer looking at the sky. It’s really elegant!

This isn’t for Collabor88, but have you SEEN the new mesh eyelids at SLink?! Where have these been all my SLife?? No more do you have to try to catch your avatar blinking or draw in your eyelids in photos! They’re adjustable and you can tint the lids to match your skin or look like you’re wearing eye shadow. I just tinted with a light lavender for this photo, but I sure had fun tinting them bright green and blue!

À la prochaine!

Namaste

I always get excited for the events put on by Chic Management! They’re always well put together with some fantastic designers. The upcoming Back To Black event is no different! Back To Black is an awareness event [not a charity event!] focusing on mental health and other disorders that impact our lives. When I saw the Leisure Outfit by Izzie’s, I knew I HAD to put it on. I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder over 10 years ago, and relaxation is definitely something that I work for every day!

Style - Namaste

I am seriously in love with the pants of this outfit! I want 20 pairs! And the lovely tank with the peace symbol flows just right. It’s also mod, so if you need to make it bigger or smaller, it’s no problem.

Also for the event is the Yoga Studio by Elefantu. This thing is AWESOME!

Style - Namaste, Yoga Studio

The picture honestly doesn’t do it justice. When I got into it, I felt like I was in a real yoga studio! There are 8 mats with poses, so you and your friends can have a lovely in world yoga session to relax yourselves. It IS a little primmy, at just over 400 prims, but well worth every prim, in my opinion.

Back To Black opens to the public on February 11th. Don’t miss it!

Winter’s Edge

I LOVE the 7th of the month. Want to know why? Because it’s the day before Collabor88 starts!! Yeah baby! This month’s theme is a great one, too. Winter’s Edge – The edgier side of winter, harsher than the soft exposure of last month. It’s fab! It’s also the Collabor88 Prom for our designers! Each designer has picked another creator to be their date to accompany them this month, so that means DOUBLE the things for you to buy!

Check out the Downtown Cathedral Catwalk from Trompe Loeil!

Style - Winter's Edge

This is a MESH skybox, so perfect for photos or if you’re into living in a different sort of setting than a traditional house. You can’t tell in the photo, but there is snow actually falling behind the windows! I just adore it so much! The skybox is mod/copy and 91 prims.

I’m wearing the Love skin by Illusory in the Winter’s Edge makeup. Check it out!

Style - Winter's Edge - Close Up

Pretty pretty pretty! From Ingenue for Collabor88, I’m wearing the Cyd dress, which is around the neck halter style and has a slim mesh skirt. If you haven’t tried one of the mesh skirts from Ingenue, this is THE time to get one because I promise you won’t be able to stop looking at your behind while you’re wearing it. And Caroline’s Jewelry is with us this month with the very lovely Gunmetal & Gems necklace and earrings set. So gorgeous!

Collabor88 starts tomorrow and I can’t wait for you all to see all the greatness!

30 Days – Day 12

Do you have that one outfit saved in your inventory that you put on when you just can’t think of anything else to wear? The one that makes you feel like you can just throw it on and look decent anywhere you go? This one is mine!

Style - 30 Days - Day 12

Well, okay, I’ll admit it. This isn’t EXACTLY the outfit I had saved, but a variation on one that I made around this cute Izzie Cardigan by Decoy. Everyone’s “emergency” outfit should be updated at some point, am I right? 🙂

I’m standing in the new Story of Home skybox from Awesome Blossom. For a first time attempt at a prefab, Clementine did a great job! You can buy one for Super Bargain Saturday for only $60L, so that’s a great deal!

Happy Friday!

Relaxing in Calypso’s Cave

Doesn’t this look like a beautiful sim?

Review - Belle Belle - Calypso's Cave, waterfall

Don’t you just want to go there and relax? Well, guess what? It’s not a sim. It’s a new gorgeous sky area from Belle Belle!

The new Calypso’s Cave is truly a marvel. At around 260 prims, it’s the perfect little secret getaway. And of course it is equipped with the Belle Belle Passion Inside animation system, so there are lots of cuddles, kisses, and….well, you know. 😉 But more than that, it’s just PRETTY!

Review - Belle Belle - Calypso's Cave

The stunning waterfall, the gorgeous “sunlight” streaming through a hole in the cave, little fish swimming serenely in the water, and pretty little fireflies lighting up the cave – well, gosh, what is NOT to like?

Calypso’s Cave also comes with the “Bliss Box” feature. You rez out a cute little cloud, set your desired height, and whoosh! You’re off and then it all rezzes out for you. It’s so very simple!! If you choose not to leave the cave up, you just call for your cloud again, and you’re safely delivered back to the ground, and everything de-rezzes. There is also an optional grotto entrance, in case you feel like just leaving it up, and the entrance acts as a teleporter to get you back where you want to go. It’s wonderful!

I’ve always enjoyed Leyla’s work, but I have to say – Calypso’s Cave may be the build that has impressed me the most. Get to Belle Belle and pick yours up! You won’t be sorry!

Hey, who broke my window?

It’s kind of a running joke that I have a skybox addiction. Well, skyboxes, houses, any kind of prefab, really. Luckily for me, I know some pretty good builders and once in a while they’ll drop prefabs that they’ve built on me, just to get my opinion. [Um, drop them in my inventory, I should say. Not drop them ON me. I’m not the Wicked Witch of the East or anything. I don’t even live in the east.]

Today my friend Magen Jigsaw of EmJay surprised me with a new skybox! Magen usually does clothing, but she’s branching out into prefabs, and with this first build, I can say that I’m happy she is! Check out some pictures of her new Shabby Chic skybox.

Review - EmJay - Skybox, outside

Review - EmJay - Skybox, inside

Review - EmJay - Skybox, window

I’m not usually a huge fan of the distressed texture look, but I’m really loving this. It’s wide, open, and there are lots of ways you can decorate up this box! My favorite thing, and this is something that I LOVE when prefab creators do, is that you could use this skybox down on the ground as well. It makes it more than just a skybox, it makes it a home.

The Shabby Chic is 75 prim and $300L. If you’re a prefab addict like me, you need to head over to EmJay and pick this up!

Mad About Mocorin

I was out at the new location of my favorite funky ring store, SyDS, and while I was hanging out there waiting on things to rez, I was camming around and saw a lot of cute shops. One shop that caught my interest was a new-to-me place called Mocorin.

Mocorin had an eclectic assortment of things from accessories to furniture, and all of it just too cute for words! My favorite favorite thing that I picked up was this ADORABLE Dot Skybox, which I spent the evening fixing up. I collect skyboxes lately. I can’t seem to help myself!

Isn’t it precious?! It comes with the tree and the yellow shelves. Most of the furniture and the flowers come from MudHoney [the flowers were a hunt gift, so you might not be able to find them again] and the Mystic Grass comes from Beloved Custom Designs, tinted pink & modded a bit by me.

Altogether, with the shelves and the tree, this prim budget friendly skybox comes in at 29 prims. 29! The skybox by itself is 24 prims. AND it’s $L budget friendly at just $100L.

I probably wouldn’t have seen the skybox if I hadn’t been prize camping and camming around. If you sit for just 10 minutes, you get these pretty little sandals. There are 2 in the pack, one without the flower on top and one with. I like the one with the flower better.

And because I absolutely love girly skully type accessories, I just had to pick up the Skull Set for just $100L. It comes with a ring, bracelet, and necklace, but I’m not wearing the necklace. It’s a little chunky, but I’ll probably be able to work it into some outfit. But I love love the ring and bracelet! And there’s a little glow in the “diamonds” on the bracelet but it is modifiable if you wanted to get rid of it. I think it’s kinda cute.

All in all, it was a fabulous trip to a new store that I just love. It really pays to walk around the shopping areas sometimes! 🙂

Elegant Living in Fricker’s Loft

I have some super talented friends. The funny part is that they are talented in so many different ways! But I’m lucky because not only are they incredible people who are always there to make me laugh and support me and they allow me to share in their lives, but they give me pretty stuff too. 🙂

My friend Fricker Fraker is not only a great artist, but a wonderful musician and composer. Catch one of his shows where he performs on the Native American flute. It’s beautiful music! So knowing this, I was pretty surprised when yesterday he said he’d built a skybox. What? Fricker builds? Oh yes, yes he does.

The Black Loft #1 skybox is absolutely one of the prettiest skyboxes I’ve seen in a while. It is simple and elegant. In a world where elegance is not always easily found, Fricker’s loft is stunning. Check out the pics!

The texture work is just fabulous. Look at the shadows and lights!! This skybox is a prim budget friendly one at just 62 prims, 30×30 footprint, and includes the privacy window controller and the door slides open when you walk up to it. The ceilings are also high to allow for easy camming or photo studios. It is also modify/copy, so you can change anything in it, although why you would, I don’t know. My favorite touch might just be the cute lights up at the top! But oh, that texture work!!

You can pick up your own skybox for $800L on Xstreet or get a discount and buy it for $750L at his new store, Fricker’s Emporium.
