My Black Heart’s To Blame

Just a picture I was inspired to do by Dreaming Thicket’s new beautiful royal crown release at Enchantment. I wanted to do a more solemn but visually impactful photo that was not your usual kingly picture and this was the outcome. I was lucky enough to find the perfect skin tone made by Plastik that matched what I had in mind. This tune set the mood for this creation 🙂

Simple Beauty

This is going to be a short and sweet post.  I love this dress…. the end.

 

 

Kidding.  But seriously I love this dress.  I wore it for my party when it was my birthday! Its so simple and delicate.  Now when I say simple I do not mean that in a bad way at all! Its very elegant and sweet.  I find it pure.  But the way I have it styled is very simple.  Just an up style of my hair and the dress ♥ I feel that the dress is the shining moment and doesn’t needs all the flashy to go with it.  Which is why I called its Simple Beauty.  The details of the dress says it all in my opinion.  Mesh flowers adorn the dressing gown and makes up the straps of this gown.  It’s long and graces the floor just lightly.   You can find it at FaMESHed.  Created by JustBecause.  Make sure to test out the demo and just enjoy it.  There are so many colors and flower color options too! Place on the HUD and style it to your fitting ♥

Best Mates Squad

For the past few seasons, my squad and I have been playing Fortnite (instead of League) so when MadPea made these awesome golf carts, I immediately knew I had to do a pic with my best mates. The new season of Fortnite introduced all new ATKs that we absolutely love and usually my cuzzy is our designated driver. So in this picture, you’ll see me sporting the Bandolier look, my cuzzy wearing the Redline look, and Jin is rocking the spot-on Reaper aka John Wick look.

Getting this scene set up was a bit more difficult than I had thought! I knew I wanted the party bus in back as well as a glider for someone to fly in the scene on. However, I couldn’t find anything in world that were close to what you would find in Fortnight, so I started piecing things together from other items, making a make-shift laser-shark glider and a rudimentary party bus. However, the golf cart from MadPea was perfect as is!

These MadPea Krazy Karts are fully functioning vehicles, seating up to three avatars with different sit animations. The car can be set to everyone, group only, or owner only. You can find these golf carts at The Gacha Garden where there is a total of 9 Commons, 1 Rare, and 1 Seed of Inspiration item to win from this set.

Are you a Rebel?

Location: Kalopsia

Oh my gosh, I left the house! I went out and found a place to blog.  Well actually I didn’t find a place.  Mostly, I love this design of a store front.  Its Kalopsia’s main store location and I really enjoy it because there are many nooks you can take some really gorgeous pictures at.  This would be another spot on her sim! I really do enjoy finding new ways to use this location ♥

I am back with another obsession of LAQ heads.  This time I am doing something a little different.  I am wearing Rebel.  I adore this head so much.  She is beautiful to work with.  What I done different is instead of showing you an out of the box head, I am showing you what happens when you change the shape, and add a skin that isn’t for the head.  I really enjoy how these heads are very multi-changeable.  You can mix and match different skins and shapes and make something of your own. When I blog I like showing what you get and try to keep things like edits to a minimum.  This time I wanted to show you that you can make this head your own and create a look that would suit your needs.  Being I am not a shape maker, I normally wear the shape that comes with (completely free in the package) and I would make small edits along the way.  Make sure you save so if you need to back track you can do so. LAQ shapes are very easy to work with I am positive you will find the best look to suit your needs.  Take a demo and practice!

To go with my head, I am wearing the new TRUTH hair! Its called Livia, and bias me cause I am Olivvia I wanna buy all the things that mimic my name.  This hair is so fluffy like and sweet.  I really am adoring this hair in red too.  Normally I am a brown and blond girl .. so to step out of the box, I am being a redhead and I adore it.  I really didn’t think I would enjoy the reds as much but it works so nicely with my face shape and look that I had to keep it.  I cannot say enough that would tell you how much I think this hair will be my favorite! Good thing I have the full pack and can wear all the colors ♥

FaMESHed opened yesterday! I am wearing a new Cae necklace from there. This tier necklace is beautiful, and it has a dangle chain on the lower half that falls perfectly.  There is a plate on the upper part of the necklace.  There is like always a HUD in the pack where you can change aspects of the necklace.  But I was really in love with the look of it out of the box, normally I like changing up the design … but I really couldn’t get over the look.  If you would like a closer look you can see the ad pic at the bottom of the post ♥

Last is my dress from Erratic.  Summer is finally here and its hot outside.  This is the perfect dress for the season.  No straps and light material that would allow your body to breathe.  Which to me screams comfort.  Anything that makes me comfortable is a win in my book.  This was part of Fifty Linden Friday last week, but you can still purchase in the store for normal price.  There are so many colors you can get.  But I was falling for this black floral.  It was girl and pretty and just what I needed in my life.  Make sure you wear panties with it, as this set doesnt have any.  But this would be cute with leggings too!

Okay, I am done rambling bout things.  If you would like any of these items or wanna see the main stores of these places, you can find the information below ♥

The Beginning of a New Office

I AM SOOO EXCITED! There is one thing I love in the RL as much as I love in the SL and that is OFFICE STUFF! This goes for supplies and decorations.  I love going to craft stores and buying all the things to make fun items.  I love going to office supply stores and buying all the pens and papers … omgosh I want to go shopping just because of that.  I am lucky to have a designated space where I can place all the things that I buy.  I am very happy to announce that Epiphany is opened! I got all the good things there to start decorating my office.  All the supplies one would need.  Even better I had recently purchased some other goodies from What Next that pertain to blogging and I love it.  Being a blogger I want all the things that are blog worthy ♥

I am going to leave my blog simple as there isn’t much to really speak of.  I have all the items listed below.  One more thing, if you shop at Epiphany some of the booths are set up to purchase a full pack.  Sooo if you are like me and do not feel like playing the machines and just want to get to the point, that option is there for you! I love it.  OK anyways, check out the info below.  Go shopping and have fun ♥

We’re having Karaoke tonight ..

Do you have a go to Karaoke song?  I am not sure if I have a song that I would sing if I was up on stage. Actually I don’t think I would be on the stage to begin with.  Total CHICKEN here … bawk bawk.  But I will say that in my brain I have so many songs that I know all the words too.  Do you ever find it funny that some days you cannot remember a single thing that is going on in your life or what you did the day before, but you can remember every word to any song that you love?  It comes naturally as if you could never forget it.

Foxcity has placed out at the Epiphany a Gacha set.  BUT for us people that are a little over of all the gacha playing and not really getting all the pieces, its nice to have the option to just purchase it right out.  I like having everything.  I admit I do not have the linden to play hardcore to win all the items that I want.  So for me that option to just purchase it is great.  BUT besides that, this set is amazing! I mean the attention to detail is amazing, from the lighting right down to the microphone.  There are poses in the couch, tables, and microphones there are lots of way to have fun in this room.  So many family and friend get together, parties and just all round things to just do.   I am excited to try and do something more than a single night alone of singing.  Even if Caleb is off the camera listening to my horrid singing.  Ok well maybe he likes my singing a little … maybe …

Either way its time to head over to the Epiphany and grab this set.  Whether playing the machines or buying it right out, there is an option for everyone.  So we are all happy! Besides you should be singing.  Get your hands on this set and get singing!!

PS. Foxcity has pushed back the date for the contest that is happening.  If you use this set and are a blogger, you have a chance to win a spot on the team.  Use the tag #foxcitychallenge and then add to the group.  You have until Aug 5th.  Only your first picture counts no matter how many you send in so make sure your first picture is the best is going in the group! ♥

I Like It

I seem to go through phases where I become obsessed with a specific song. First it was Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande. Then it was Never Be The Same by Camila Cabello. And now it is I Like It by Cardi B & J Balvin. So this picture, obviously, is a tribute to my latest obsession.

Culprit released these really sweet rideable rezzer bikes for Fameshed Go. There are two kinds: Surf scooter and Sphynxie scooter. You know which one I immediately went for 😉 The surf one – of course! With my love for the waters, this was a no brainer and was my ride to the beach for an afternoon dip. Each of the bikes include a rezzer as well as a decor version of the bike. For the surf bike, you can choose from three different themed colors: Aloha, Flower, and Surf.

While at the beach, I snorkeled for a bit, sporting my new swim trunks from Tori Torricelli. The fatpack has a lot of nice solids and patterns to choose from with customizable trim and tie colors. Compatible with Signature Gianni, Signature Geralt, Belleza Jake, Slink Male & Aesthetic Enzo. Then quenched my thirst with a nice cool bottle of beer thanks to ChicChica’s newest release which includes the beer carrier (bento hold animation or decor options) as well the beer bottle (bento hold animation or decor options).

Side note for those who actually enjoy water sports in SL, this Snorkel/Dive mask from Splash Rapids is really nice. They have wear and take off animations for the snorkel/dive masks that will pull the mask from the top of your head down to your face when you are ready to dive or peel the mask from your face to pull back up to the top of your head when you are done diving. If may not be the perfect fit, but there are four sizes of the mask to choose from. In addition, there are a plethora of colors to select for your mask.

I’m Still Here

爺爺, I’m home. Work was really busy today so I didn’t get to come back home until this late in the evening. I brought you some of your favorite snacks tonight. Picked up some mangosteen at a fruit cart nearby and made you some green tea. No cigarettes this time – I know you love them. 奶奶 mentioned you the other day while we were talking about faith and fate. She misses you – a lot. My dad too, I bet, but he and I don’t really talk much. You know how it is. Sometimes I wonder if you’re really here or not still. 奶奶 says your energy still is, it is what keeps her strong even at her age. It’s been twenty years though……. are you still here?

I’m still here…

Pool Side Fun

Hello my beautiful readers! Its sooo hot in the America right now, that I felt it would be good to do a pool outside post! Having a little BBQ and some good treats that would be refreshing would be nice.  So instead of jumping into my fashion first, I am going to talk about the surrounding items.  At UBER you can pick up the new BBQ from Moss and Mink, while I am using the decor version of this grill, it does have a usable one.  IT COOKS FOOD! Its a fun little grill and took me a moment to really figure it out, only because I don’t read directions at all.  I swear I feel like I know it all … and I do sometimes … yea.  But anyways it cooks such cute little BBQ foods that this was perfect for our pool side.

At the main store of DustBunny you can find the snow cone machine and cute little snow cone sets! I really love the berries that are decorating the cones and the stand.  Its a refreshing cooling ice that will definitely take the heat out of ya and leave a nice cooling sensation.  There are three colors in the package that you can pick for your cone machine, and there are two different fruits for your cones that give that fresh vibe and I really am loving it.  Healthy!  I paired this with a few items I already had from Dustbunny, like the heart table and the unicorn planter Just to add a little decoration around the items.  Very cute.   Another refreshing items are the watermelons and the blackberry drinks.  I always felt like if you were to go swimming you should have fruits and other items that would help hydrate you because the chlorine will suck it out the moisture in your body, so remember if you are out and swimming in the heat to keep hydrated.

Okay so my fashion! So my downfall in life is my LAQ heads, because I am in love with their heads, I buy all of them as they come out, but I always wanted the Nyx head and I never gotten it. Now I have it and I am wearing it.  What I really enjoy about LAQ is that you can mix and match the heads with her skins and know that you are getting a really cute look.  For example I am wearing the Nyx head which is an older Bento head that has been updated and paired it with the new Cherry Skin that has come out and is at Collabor88.  As you can see it matches like they were made for each other.  I am finding that mixing and matching heads and the skins are so much fun and I think you are looking at getting LAQ for your new heads to check out the mix and match!

The last thing I wanna talk about and show off is the Bikini I purchased its by Cynful and its amazing! When I seen it in the picture I didn’t realize that the sequins were all single placed or however it was made.  But its not painted on as a look.  Its upraised which is something I really like about this.  Its actually really realistic and shimmers in the light I really do like it.  I was in love with the blue when I laid my eyes on it.  There are so many colors to choose from and each of them are shiny and beautiful! So pick all the colors in my opinion.

So that is all for noow, check out the details below have fun shopping because yea, its shopping and its fun.  ♥
