This out fit I put together around these new shoes from Gos Boutique. The Miranda shoes have swallows patterned on them and they are a perfectly chunky little Mary Jane shoe to wear with anything from dresses to pants. I am wearing the dress from skirt and shirt from Tee*fy at Collabor88 and the jewelry/sunglasses from Yummy. My poses are from Marukin which are also at Collabor88.

Much Glitter… so Cutie Moon. Amaze!

So, my daughter Melanie had on this cute hair from the Cutie Moon fair that is from .Olive. and I got an idea to do a little post with her based on what she had on. I think we look cuuuuute!

Oh, and see those Rider’s in the background? Those are super cool. You can even fly around on them and everything! Wimey! who is also at the Cutie Moon fair made those and they are so much fun.

Glam Affair’s Romy – Loud Mouth Appliers

romy1

I did a post yesterday on Glam Affair’s Romy which will be upcoming at Skin Fair, but I wanted to do a separate post showing off the new appliers for the Loud Mouth that Glam Affair has made in all skin tones for the Romy skin.

I like the Loud Mouth but I would recommend using the note card that comes with it and fitting your lips to the suggestions that they have. If you are taking photos in shadows I would suggest turning off ambient occlusion to reduce unflattering lines. It’s best to play around with wind light and use one that is brighter to make the lips appear more seamless to your face.

I am wearing the Lolita hair from Truth at Collabor88 and the Tres Blah Blazer and top also from Collabor88. My poses are from Marukin – from Collabor88.

I posed with two very special little girls today (Juliana Thistle and MelanieBianca Lyric) that Auto and I are on trial with but.. I feel like they are already in my heart. They are the sweetest little girls and I loved taking these photos with them today.

My dress and jewelry are from Collabor88 for January by Maitreya and you only have a few more days to go and get them. Poses are from Marukin and my hair is Felicity from Truth. The Peacocks are from MishMish.

Kitties Lair @ Shoetopia and Collabor88

kitties

Cute boots! I love them and Kitties Lair makes some cute ones for Shoetopia (which opens on the 15th). Fall is such a boot season, you know? I can remember Kitties Lair as one of my first favorite places to buy dresses and shoes from a long long time ago and it made me smile to see them at Shoetopia. I thought that they went with my outfit from Collabor88 quite perfectly.

kl

Collabor88 has some awesome things this round. The hair that I am wearing is from Clawtooth. The dress is from R2. and the jewelry is from Yummy. Collabor88 is great this round and the theme is Industrial Chic.

The tights are not from Collabor88 but they are a mix of Erratic ripped tights and Izzies Fishnets. My poses are older and from Marukin.

New stuff and Collabor88 opens today!

So, today is my favorite day of the month in SL.. Collabor88 opens! Yay! A few days ago was also new Truth hair day.. double Yay! So there is a lot of new stuff out there, you just have to go and find it.

The hair with the hat and I never wear hair with hats (but I love this one) is from Truth.

The dress is from the Secret Store at Collabor88 and the shoes from Gos Boutique and the poses from Marukin are also at collabor88 this month.

The Isabella shoes this month from Gos are great because not only is it a discount it’s also a brand new Gos shoe! Can never have enough of those. Hope you are having a great Tuesday!

A sad but font farewell to the Sea Hole!

cupcake

The sad news that Drinkinstein Sorbet was closing the much loved Sea Hole came this last week and there is a massive sale going on right now where she has marked everything down to 50L’s until May 31st and you guessed it, it’s time to shop but it’s also time to wish Drink well on to her new adventures that await her in RL. If you would like to do a blog post or just a photo in tribute to the Sea Hole, post your photo here: https://www.flickr.com/groups/theseahole/pool/with/8744841556/#photo_8744841556

I am happy for you Drink, and wish you well in your adventures and thank you for making things that have always brought a smile to my face as well as Collabor88 which will still go on but will be put into the trusted hands of Octagons Yazimoto & Jezibell Thorne.

Thank you Drink for a whimsical, and wonderful place to shop and for being so awesome. I raise my flask to you, that you made of course! :D

In other news, the jewelry that I am wearing is from Cae. A fun little cupcake set that you can get at the Liaison Collaborative. I am also wearing new hair from Truth while standing in the spring cabin from Apple Fall at Collabor88 and my poses are from Marukin.

It’s Friday!

Imaniandme

Good Morning Second Life and happy Friday! I am first wanted to show this very cute pose from a store called .click that specializes in Second Life Family Poses, in this photo is my adorable daughter Imani “Turnip” Isabella Olivier. She says hello! The poses at .click are some of the cutest that I’ve seen for families.

Onward and upward there are many awesome new things being offered at Collabor88. This gazebo/daybed set from floorplan is one of my favorites this round. I love the bed that comes with it and the colors in general. The prim count is not too shabby either. This skin is from Glam Affair, also at collabor88 they have released a Europa tone for Margot and I think the make-up on this one in particular is beautiful. This fanciful wistful hair comes to us from D!va and I also used a pose from Marukin.. all available at Collabor88.

My flip flops are from Gos Boutique.

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.

elate2

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!
