Island In The Sun

If you haven’t been to the latest round of Collabor88 you need to go. It’s their birthday round, loaded with tons of stores participating. I picked up Soy’s Dreamy Hanging Chair there. It’s perfect for finishing off the summer in. I’m wearing Mon Cheri’s Sachi Flaire Dress, it comes with sleeves (not shown) also. It’s available in a variety of solids, and these fun tie dye prints. They also include a belt with HUD so you can change belt colors.

My hair is is Laila from Mina. It’s at Festival of Sin II at the moment. I love the height at the back, and how full it is. My shoes are Essenz’ Marrakesh wedges, and they are available at her main store. They feature a metal circle emblem on the front of the strap, with a HUD for silver or gold option.

Sweet Escape

Sweet Escape

This was summer of fantastic releases that really filled out my wardrobe, and my house full of beachy things.  I picked up this cute boho blouse at Mimikri. She’s updated her store, if you haven’t been in awhile. Nothing but mesh now, and she always has something neat there. I really liked this top, and am wearing it with Blueberry’s Elina Shorts. They have a side string, and a really nice shape to them. I bought the fatpack, so I can wear them with anything. The fatpack HUD lets you easily pick from all the colors, and even recolor the side strings.

My hair is from Slink, who recently installed a new store. The rebuild is contemporary, sleek, and still has a bit of a retro feel to it. I really like it.  She’s redefined the interior space to specific sections making the place very easy to navigate. My Trinidad sandals are from Essenz. She’s has so many fantastic sandals, but these are my favorites.  My beach house is full of all kinds of fun gacha’s I played all summer, and some favorites I have picked up over the past year or so at a variety of events, and stores.

Hair Fair 2015 – Tableau Vivant

Tableau Vivant - TenTableau Vivant released 4 hairstyles at Hair Fair 2015 . They’re located on the Blonde sim. All their hairstyles are shown here in shades from the Balayage tones.  Ten was my immediate favorite, with long tresses to the front, and volume to the crown.  Cara is a full volume style with the upper sections of hair braided to the back, and a bit of a wave. Last Train Home is a hot short hair with volume. Scarlett is a hat hair, that comes with and without hat versions. Also the ability to add a ribbon tie to the hat. This hat is hot, and the hair without it becomes a lovely soft updo.  Cara, Ten, and Last Train Home are unisex with male sizing available with purchase.  Tableau Vivant’s gift was a beautiful headband with tropical flower in 6 colors.

I’m wearing lot’s of new things for spring, many of which are available at events. Exile’s really pretty Miles to Nowhere hair, and Tee*fy’s cute Giselle Romper are from Collabor88. I really like this romper, its available in a wide variety of colors. It comes in standard sizing, as well as a fitted mesh version. More event related items are my Stacked Gemstone Rings from Izzie’s available at TDR Fusion, and my hot Sacramento heels from Essenz that can be found at On9. I’ve styled them with a cute bucket bag from Zenith, and hairpiece from Mandala. My skin is also new, Yvonne it’s from YS&YS, made for LeLutka’s new mesh heads. I’m wearing the LeLutka Lotte mesh head, which I’ve really favored lately.

LeLutka is releasing another trio of mesh heads – Stella, Lotte, and Karin.  I’m wearing Lotte with Izzie’s Sophee skin and makeup appliers for them.  My favorite tone at Izzie’s is sunkissed, and I’m wearing the freckles option on my Maitreya Lara Body.  I’ve tried on all three heads, and each I like, and have no preferences yet for them. I am partial to Lotte so far.  As with many mesh heads you will need to adjust your shape’s eyes.  So make a copy of your shape, with the adjustments for your head folder.  I find that different heads require different measurements sometimes.  With Lotte you will need to adjust more so.  My eye spacing is 48, I could have gone about 46-48 on the sliders, and my eye opening is 30.  The mesh heads are also affected by changes on the head length and stretch sliders in Edit > Shape.  So play around with it while you demo.  Skin and makeup designers have been releasing LeLutka mesh head appliers with skin/makeup, or makeup options.  If you’re a makeup creator, you can find a developers kit free, on the table in the mesh heads section of LeLutka to get started creating makeup appliers for them.  Stella, Lotte, and Karin will be released on April 30th, 2015 at 9AM SLT time (that’s SECOND LIFE TIME aka USA PACIFIC TIME so GMT-7/8 depending.).  I’ve demo’d all of them and I have to say they’re really beautiful. They have a more youthful feel to them then the earlier trio, and easily transition from uber glam to soft dreamy looks.

I’ve spent the past week out and about going to lots of events like Shiny Shabby, and doing the TAG! Gacha.  Lot’s of fun new things out! I’ve set up an outdoor camp with many of my newest things, like Ison’s Travelling Star set, and a few things from various gachas like 8f8, and Zerkalo. Of course I have a bevy of Fashionably Dead Cats running amuck through it.  My trees and grass are from Studio Skye, they have been my first stop lately for all manner of nature, and my horizon is a (sim) edge landscape from Landscapes Unlimited that’s a favorite of mine at the moment – the Rolling Hills. I’ve got the Gold version which lets me choose terrain, trees, etc, and its the edge version so it runs along the side of a sim. I don’t have mine off sim like many use them for, but within the sim so I can add more trees etc to the hills and I also like to reduce the height of trees I add to exaggerate the suggestion of distance. I could link them and make them all off sim, but I change them out so much I don’t bother. I love these horse props and poses I picked up at Focus Poses. With each set of poses you get a horse, with menu driven poses, and texture change mesh horse! I found the horse was a tad low poly for my photos so I heavily edited it. Sari-Sari’s Apples pose set worked great, and it comes with mesh apples as well.
