So, guess what time it is again almost? Time for the Arcade! Well in roughly two days my favorite event of each season opens up on March 1st.
I got inspired by looking at Dustbunny’s set for the Arcade which is this house, shed and various other things in the photo that you can play the Gacha and try your luck for! The little cottage is so cute.
I also put a few of the little garden friends in this photo from Ispachi, the pig with the balloons is from Mutresse, and the little car is from Soy. The trees, flowers and roads while not from Arcade.. you can find them at HPMD.
Yes, it’s true. This is my favorite round of Collabor88. I love everything. The colors, the clothes, the pose props, the hair.. everything! This hair is the April Hair from Truth at Collabor88 for this round. It’s gorgeous and I think that I will be wearing this hair quite often.
My pose for the photo above – not from Collabor88 is from Izzie’s. I really like Izzie’s head shot poses and now these hand ones a lot.
For this photo I went to Small Town Green and I floated around on this seat/pose prop from flowey at Collabor88 that is affixed with two balloons and I flew over small town green to take this photo. I love Small Town Green. The dress that I am wearing is from Tres Blah at Collabor88 also.
My skin is the Romy skin from Glam Affair and my eyes are from Ikon.
Spring is in the air! The newest releases from Jane in some beautiful spring colors like the outfit that I am wearing put me in the mood to get rid of boots, scarves and all things winter. But first check out the jewelry set that I am wearing from Je Suis. I LOVE owls and when I found this set in their mainstore I fell in love so I had to get a close up!
This Ring is also part of the set and simply adorable. I wanted to get a closer shot of that too. Anyhow these new seperates from Jane are mesh so you need a mesh enabled viewer to see them but they are on the lower end of the price spectrum for higher priced quality. I always adore the mesh that I get from Jane, and the pricing is wonderful too.
I am also using poses from Purple Poses. The brand new skin from Glam Affair “Leah” which I believe is out later today and newish hair from Exile in Sunset. I love being a red head right now and Exile has some of the prettiest hair colors for being a red head. My shoes are the cottage flats from Mon Tissu.
“Spring is like a perhaps hand
(which comes carefully
out of Nowhere)arranging
a window,into which people look(while
arranging and changing placing
carefully there a strange
thing and a known thing here)and
changing everything carefully
spring is like a perhaps
Hand in a window
and fro moving New and
people stare carefully
moving a perhaps
fraction of flower here placing
an inch of air there)and
without breaking anything.”

So, Marls and I were doing bits and pieces of the Seasons Hunt yesterday and put this little house together which is one of the fabulous thing that you can get from the hunt. The only thing I bought for these photos was the Nodari Kitchen which goes so well in the house and it was a steal at 200L and I scored the blue rug for free from Molto Bene.
The items featured in this post are the hunt items from L2 where the skybox is from, The Loft, Little Boxes, Nodari, Northwest, Cheeky Pea, Art Dummy, Kari, and I think that I forgot one but this hunt is soo worth doing. This could be a good starter home for someone and you could really add your own touches in here to make it look really great. There is also other furniture in the hunt.. Katya Jhamin did a wonderful post for everything that you can get in the hunt and the slurls. So look at her post too!
So yesterday the buzz was about the new releases for spring at Fishy Strawberry.. and I had to go check them out and was very pleasantly surprised to find this scarf, and new skirt. The shirt in this post I believe is from an older release but the colors for everything are very lovely.. and spring like!
The hair is a vip group gift from Elikatira which is very lovely and generous and from her newest release.. there was a sampler pack of colors included so it fits just about everytaste and she does short hair so beautifully. There is a fee to join but I think it is totally worth it for possible future gifts.
My earings are from Mandala, Skin is new from Laqroki called Linnea and the shoes are from Mon Tissu. the pose in both posts is from Glitterati.. which to mention.. I’m excited about the pose fair that is coming up around the corner.
I’ve been meaning to blog this outfit for awhile now.. but you know how things go. It is a newer release that I picked up from So Many Styles. So Many Styles is the type of store that I might not visit often enough but I’m always glad that I did. The texture and detail in the clothing is amazing and the poofy skirt makes me feel a bit like a princess. This is also a great date outfit.
I am wearing Curio Hair and skin which I’ve been fond of lately but I wish they would release new hair.. its been.. erm.. a long time since I’ve seen new hair. The poses for this post are by DARE which I’ve been loving on lately. The shoes are by Maitreya Gold and my eyes are from Poetic Colors. The beads are a previous FLF item from DECO.
What are your plans for the spring? An old friend suggested swapping services I check on her computer system at work and she will help me plant my grandmother a garden. Sounds like a fair trade to me. What about you!
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little lame baloonman

Dress, and shoes from Surf Couture. Hair by Lamb. Glasses by Paper Couture. Skin by Fashionably Dead. Necklace by Deco. Pose by Penny Dreadful Arcade (no longer open but some poses can be found at the pose fair)
Phoenix Rising is with this lovely new release. For the jewels.. what is sexier than wearing a sprig of petals over your breasts? The Heirloom set comes with the necklace and earrings shown and it is absolutely lovely! The dress which I am wearing is Wisk shown in Nude but comes in several other colors is the perfect flirty dress for a nice evening out.. the swirly skirts will leave you to spin out on a star.
I had meant to blog these before today but over the weekend my computer decided to take a dump wiping out everything I had so a lot of work later and I present you these but I have up and coming other new releases from Phoenix Rising to show you as well so please stay tuned.
My hair is from Lelutka.. it gathers in the back at the nape of my neck cascading into a length that marks the middle of my back. The skin is the Pearl Skin for Laqroki with the Cleavage enhancer in Peach. My shoes are the strappy and sassy Stilletto Moody Katherines. My advice for you? Go sit on your porch and feel the first tendrils of spring brush back your hair.
LeeZu! continues to amaze me with the outstanding quality of her store. It’s another one of those stores where anything you get you know is going to be at the height of fashion and just well made with little adjustment.
Pictured above I am wearing one of the newest releases which is the Vienna dress. The dress boasts a “hidden skirt attachment for better movement” and it lives up to statement very well. It comes in six colors and can be found in the “Ready to wear” section of the store.
I have to say that this dress makes me feel like an exotic flower.. wafting through a moonlit breeze. It’s airy, and light and something about it is so well constructed yet it gathers around your hips in the most sensual and delicate way. You should wear this dancing under the stars.
The skin that I am wearing is from Lionskins that I found in one of the snowflake hunts back in December, yet the quality of this skin still astounds me if you look at the close up photo in the face. It is gorgeous. Lionskins has recently teamed up with LeeZu! and had brought along a new skin line called Inanna Unleashed which you can look at and purchase at LeeZu!
The shoes that I have paired with the dress are from Courtisane and they are the Devoue Sandals. They are versatle and can be worn with many different outfits and they have a lovely little flower on them. I was curious about the origins of Courtisane and I found this: “Courtisane products are made in a co-operation between two of Second Life’s leading designers; LeeZu Baxter who has been very succesfull with her clothing and accessory lines, and Enktan Gully who has been an outstanding female footwear designer in sl since 2006.” They are outstanding shoes, indeed.
The hair that I am wearing in this post is from Truth. The eyes are from Poetic Colors and the Bracelets I believe are now retired from Pacadi. The wonderful tights in this post called Knitted Sex Appeal are from Lelutka and you can find them in the accessories section of the store.
