Elate @ Collabor88 & the Neva River Sim

elate

I think you still have about a week left to check out the Neva River sim, home to the brilliant Neva Crystall. She has graciously opened up her home and there are lots of really cool places to take photos, I wanted to take a few more but became frustrated with my computer because it kept crashing but seriously, go. It’s breath taking. I’m gonna keep on trying to go back myself.

I am wearing this blazer jacket and pants set from Elate! that is out now at Collabor88 until April 8th, and I have to say that these pants are super flattering and very well done. The jacket is super nice too. I was very impressed upon wearing them and now I have to try all the other color combinations too! My poses are from Marukin, my hair is from Truth and my ring is from La Gyo.

So, may I suggest for you weekend that you go check out the Neva River Sim and you go get some cool things from Collabor88!

Frostbitten @ Collabor88

Yesterday, something wonderful happened.. and do you know what that is? Why Collabor88 came back for another round of exceptional items! Everything that I’m wearing in this post including my scenery (with the exception of my eyes and tights) is from this round of Collabor88′s “Frostbitten”.

This is one of my favorite rounds to date. Everything is of incredibly high quality and beauty. I am wearing the Valerie hair from Wasabi Pills, The crystal earrings from La Gyo. I am wearing the Frostbitten Amberly Skin from Glam Affair as well as the Scarf from Boom, the dress from Ingenue and the boots from Hucci. The standing poses are from Marukin.

The Winter Camping set with, sleeping bags, Igloo, Fire Pit, Kettle, sleds (that you can actually sled with!) and sitting log is from Cheeky Pea.. and has amazing poses and animations. The set is flawlessly done. I had some fun taking the photos too!

Roza’s dark side by Glam Affair

Glam Affair recently released brand new makeups for the Roza and Ginny line, themed for Halloween – perfect for your dark side. I think these makeups would be perfect for Halloween or dramatic photos. I really love the Roza line and these makeups are great.

I am also wearing brand new hair from Truth in the fades pack (which is my new favorite Truth pack) Rashida. I like the side sweep bangs on this hair and the way it frames the face. The jewelry that I am wearing is new from La Gyo at the Dressing room blue.

A modern sort of princess..

I wont rave about how much I love the Fairy Tales 2012 event going on right now but lets just say you need to go there armed with a shopping list prepared to lose a ton of cash.

Like La Gyo.. how gorgeous is this head piece? Every piece of jewelry they have made for the event I bought up like hot cakes. Belleza has this skin that has the most gorgeous red lips and innocent blush – their version of Snow Whites skin is sensual and beautiful all at once. This top from Glam Affair shows one breast and the color almost matches my skin. If you are in the mood to enchant someone you have every advantage at your disposal.

“things you said that day
up on the 101
the girl had come undone
i tried to downplay it
with a bet about us
you said that-
you’d take it
as long as i could
i could not erase it

and i’m so sad
like a good book
i can’t put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you”
Tori Amos “A Sorta Fairytale”

The things that I did not get at this event are on my hands an neck.. and panties. Zaara makes some of the most classic and beautiful items fit for a princess. I can always find something at Zaara that I adore. This hair is from Lelutka and these poses are from Adorkable.

Like a summer breeze

Yesterday, one of my favorite stores – Leezu! released this gorgeous summery mesh top that is sheer in some areas. I love the back to this top an well just everything about it. The Souchi top is a wonderful addition to any sl wardrobe and lets just say I’m growing ever fond of transparent mesh.


I am also wearing brand new hair from Lelutka, that you must go and get now! New Lily v1. Skin from Belleza which is gorgeous and just boosts the overall quality of your avatar. The earrings are from La Gyo and you can get them at the Fairy Tales Event 2012. The jeans and flip flops previously blogged by me are from Maitreya.

Have a lovely sunday!

Fairy Tales 2012

“In this life you have to be your own hero.

By that I mean you have to win whatever it is that matters to you by your own strength and in your own way.

Like it or not, you are alone in a forest, just like all those fairy tales that begin with a hero who’s usually stupid but somehow brave, or who might be clever, but weak as a straw, and away he goes (don’t worry about the gender), cheered on by nobody, via the castles and the bears, and the old witch and the enchanted stream, and by and by (we hope) he’ll find the treasure.”
― Jeanette Winterson, The PowerBook

“The stories we sit up late to hear are love stories. It seems that we cannot know enough about this riddle of our lives. We go back and back to the same scenes, the same words, trying to scrape out the meaning. Nothing could be more familiar than love. Nothing else eludes us so completely.”
― Jeanette Winterson, The PowerBook
