Colorful

pr21 copy

This is just a colorful mix of things that I wanted to put together.. I wasn’t sure where it was going but I like the results. This jewelry set is from Kunglers and I kinda fell in love. I love jewelry with bugs and flowers like this so I kinda went crazy for it when I first saw it. Primavera, it means spring.

This mesh outfit is from a new to me brand called Mutresse. I really like the hud that comes with it and it has so many options for the color parts that you can change and the mesh fits really well. I am so glad I picked this outfit up. I think its very chic and stylish.

primavera

The skin and make up are a mix of Glam Affair lipstick layers/eyeliners and the Cleo Skin along with various freckle layers. Glam Affair is my default skin and I switch between Cleo, Margot and Amberly. My eyes are from Ikon and the poses are from Del May. My shoes are from Gos Boutique.

Mid Summer Nights at Collabor88 begins soon!

Tomorrow Collabor88 starts a new round and the theme for the month of July is “Mid Summer Night”. I’m very excited about this round and have seen a few things so far that I love. Two of them are in this post! This bed from Tableau Viviant and this dress from Decoy.

I look forward to Collabor88 every month and always love the things that come from it. I think next month Collabor88 will turn two years old! I look forward to seeing what else comes about this round – and I especially like the theme. The best time I’ve found to go to Collabor88 when it first opens is early morning, there are still many people but I’ve found that to be the easiest time!

This is not your typical post!

See the two of them? Just look at how cute they are! Today I’m gonna pack them up in my little car and take them to Summer Camp at camp Hard Knocks! I think that it’s just over a week long and I’m gonna miss my daughter Ryleigh and her adorable girlfriend Ellie (My bebe-in-law).

*Sighs* Even though I will miss them, a week and a half or so of sun, swimming, and camp fun will do them good! Plus I might have a few house parties of my very own while they are gone and my other daughter Syleee is at boarding school.. who’s in?

I walked up the stairs and into Ry’s room to check on the packing progress and found.. while them trying to stuff a bunch of toys into this suitcase. I’m all “Listen – Ry and Ellie you cannot pack your entire room in on suitcase – you gotta take a few things out!” But the little diva’s would not listen to me!

packed2

So I told them lets turn this around and the two of you try standing on it and I will try pushing too! But the suitcase wouldn’t budge and they did eventual take one or two toys out so that it would close, and we had a few more things to pack but over all Ry and Ellie were almost ready to go!
packed

We then stopped at the door and decided to strike a pose for the camera cause we are fabulous like that! It was really a lot of fun doing these photos – the poses are modified poses from Heirloom poses and I’m not really gonna do typical credits and stuff but if you want to know where something is from – we can tell you!

I want to thank my daughter Ryleigh and her girlfriend Ellie for posing in the photos and making memories with me, that is what life is all about you know? The memories that you make and yeah! *grabs a tissue* I’m going to miss them both so much while they are away at camp!

Blame the booty!

bikini

Ok, I just gotta get it out of the way and say that I love this new bikini from Zaara! I like the way it accentuates the butt and how shimmery the texture is and yeah – it’s a totally awesome mesh bikini. It provides pretty fair coverage too I think.

I’m also wearing a slightly new to me skin from Essences, and over all I am seeing real promise with their skins but my heart belongs to Glam Affair. I tweaked my shape a bit and stuff for it but decided that while its not quite for me I still think it is an awesome skin. I do love pale skins and the tone of this is gorgeous. My poses are from Exposeur and my eyes are from Ikon.

Bazar @ the Home Show

I just wanted to take a few photos of this really cute new furniture at the Home Show from Bazar which is all a part of the Toronto set and not only is it pretty low in prim it has cute extras. I have this set but Caelan Hancroft set it up so much prettier- this is actually her skybox!

You can check out the home show but taking this Slurl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Argentina%20Amor/127/164/24

Meet My Friend Challenge – Caelan Hancroft

cae copy

Ok, from the first moment that I saw this challenge my friend Cae first came to mind. She is someone that I make it a point every day to say hi too because we are long past that awkward stage of omg.. should I or shouldn’t I IM this person? I just feel so comfortable with Cae, I can tell her anything and not be judged for it. She is one of my constants here.

She is a very kind and accepting person and I just always have felt really comfy with her which is a treasure in it self. Not only is she a brilliant creator of mesh jewelry at her store Cae she is also a blogger and a fabulous SL photographer all around this girl is fantastic and not only does she do all that she manages Gos/Gos Boutique and has contributed so many skins to the Skin Directory for the fantastic Gos Boutique shoes we all love.

She is an all around great person and friend to me and she goes out of her way for people on many occasions. There are many things that I admire about Caelan that I cannot put into words and tomorrow, July the 3rd is her birthday so this makes the “Meet My Friend Challenge” from Strawberry Singh even more extra special.

Meme Instructions: Pick a friend, any friend, (male or female) take a couple of pictures of (or with) them and ask them a series of questions for a fun and lively post.

Ok, this is where I asked her my own questions!

How long have you been in SL?

– It’ll be six years in December

What would you consider your style of clothing in SL?
– Simple and casual. I used to love dressing up but I haven’t done it in so long it takes me forever!


One item in SL that you could never do without?

– Just one? You’re going to laugh because this is a “me” answer, but I am in love with the inventory boxes I use for storing stuff. Boring, but it keeps me (and my junk) organized.


What do you do in SL?

– Aside from stand on a platform? I create mesh jewelry for my store, manage Gos Boutique, and do the occasional picture or blog post.

What is the craziest thing that you’ve ever done in SL?
– I haven’t really done anything crazy, but at times, I think the craziest thing was to stay.

Did you wear bling back in the day?
– I’m sure I did, but I don’t remember exactly. I probably repressed that memory. I definitely was guilty of wearing full-bright jewelry and clicky shoes.

Do you have a most regrettable SL fashion choice?
– There have been quite a few of them. Most have involved a fluffy ball gown or a review copy that I felt obligated to blog.


What do you think is the best part about SL?

– People here are so freaking creative! We all kind of take it for granted, but everything from the chair you’re sitting on, the shoes you’re walking in, your hair and skin… they’re all the product of someone’s creativity. This place hinges on that and it’s always amazed me.


What are five stores in SL that you’d recommend to a new player?

– Am I allowed to shamelessly plug my own store as one of the five? I kid. Narrowing it down to just five is really hard, but I would try to give a new person places to create a great av: Truth, Belleza, Maitreya, ColdLogic, and Gos.

If you had one piece of advice to offer a new player what would you say to them?
– Keep things fun and don’t get drawn into other people’s drama. We’re all guilty of it, but there’s nothing that sucks the fun out of this place more than that.


What was your first impression about me?

– My first impression of you was as a SLuicide Girl which prolly makes for a rather interesting first impression lol. I just remember thinking that you wrote really well and seemed like an interesting person. I didn’t meet you for real until a couple months after that, but I’m really happy that I did.

Hair – Wasabi Pills, Tanya, Chocolate
Skin – Glam Affair, Summer, Jamaica
Eyes – Ikon, Ascension Eyes, Glass
Top – ColdLogic, Shultz Top, Cream
Jewelry – Cae

The Lake House by Pixel Mode for the Home Show

1pm

I really love this Lake House set from Tya Fallingbridge of Pixel Mode has made a sweet little romantic spot for the lovers out there for The Home Show of SL which is opening tomorrow.

I love all of the little important details of her items and the bed and shower are fun to try as they have hot and realistic animations as well as cute posing sits too. The Lake house comes with a shower and bed and a little bit of extra space for you to fill with your own items too. This is one of my favorite items for the event so I hope that you give it a look tomorrow at the grand opening.

Eva launches at Gos Boutique today at 12 SLT PM

eva

Today, at about 12SLT PM Gospel Voom will release this new and beautiful shoe called “Eva”.

If you are not already a part of the Boutique group you may wish to join to stay tuned. I am wearing the shoe in black satin but these shoes also come in other colors such as champagne, red satin, black leather, gold, silver, white satin and red leather. To date, I think these are my favorite and definitely have allure and that certain sex appeal where your own skin is really the only accessory that you will need to make an impression.

The couch that I am using in this photo is from Mudhoney and will be at the Home Show on July 1st, stay tuned for that SLURL for that as it promises to be an amazing event.
