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.  ♥

Completely Untouched!

I have spent what seems like years looks at perfect looking pictures where people seem to be untouched! I have always wondered how people can look so good while the background is blurry and yet the person seems to fit flawless into it! Well this time while looking at the flickr I seen a new tutorial placed up that shows JUST how to do that flawless look.  I wanted to give it a go.  I am so amazed by the turn out of this picture!  Soo …

Thank you Daeberethwen Arbenlow for posting this tutorial that would allow me to create this amazing picture with out edits!! Anyone that is reading my blog, just click her name, its a link to her Flickr with the post that will show you how to do this amazing skill.  So what I am meaning by no edits is this … I took two pictures like she said.  THE ONLY thing I done in PS is followed her directions, which did not require to manipulate my avatar in any form.  This is a natural shot of my avatar in world.  I really cannot stop gushing over the technique.  I think I even annoyed Caleb with it so much so that he hung up the phone while I was talking haha.

If these are the results of what my pictures can be with a simple windlight, and the merging of two layers in PS to make me look like this… to give my readers the opportunity to see a clear shot of the looks without editing of the highest degree this is … just wow.  So click the name … take a shot and learn something new.  You will be happy with the results, if I can follow her directions … seriously anyone can!

Right Here Waiting ..

So as the title states I am waiting … you might ask for what I am waiting for?  Welp that would be the husband! He was gone for a WHOLE WEEK and I am traumatized. Lucky him he went to this magical place called the City that Never Sleeps, and did all the fun things, and you know what?! HE LEFT ME HOME! I mean all kidding aside, I am happy to have him home though, its rough being away from your loved ones for so long.  But I did have our little cute kiddo to play with … so many hearts here! While he was away though, I did manage to go shopping.  The one time I am allowed to do the events without him.  So I visited Collabor88 AGAIN! I went twice because I wanted things I missed out on because of it being busy ♥

I really wanted these pants, I mean CYNFUL … GIRL yes please with these pants.  I been looking for amazing jeans that do JUST THIS.  I love wide leg pants, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how these cover the toes.  I mean these bad girls are perfect for the heels.  That little sliver of shoe to poke out.  OR TOES! I mean I did wear these barefoots.  BUT I AM IN LOVE … yes I am using all the caps with these pants.  Because I want them all! UGH! I swear, just gimme them.  Ok well I will buy them but shh we can all wish right!

Then! yes my then deserves a big exclamation mark.  I picked up this sweater/top with scarf from Just Because … UGH I am in love with this too.  This just screams fall to me! I swear I wanted to do all the colors all at one time with this shirt, but I had to pick one to feature.  So I went the basic route and choose the black color.  All over the Flickr I have seen this top floating in so many colors, so I wanted to pick one that someone didn’t do.  But I am sure Black is out there already but shhh, lets pretend it was me that did it first.  BUT I love this scarf that goes with it.  I mean there are three to pick from in the material design.  All of them are equally beautiful and amazingly great to match the shirt.  And the color choices are superb too.  I just wanna wear it all at once, I know I keep saying that but its true.

So if you haven’t been to Collabor88 then you NEED TO GO NOW! I swear I am not yelling at you, I am just excited not about just the hubby coming home but the fact that shopping was so therapeutic to me that I wanna have you go out and feel it too! Anyhoo links are at the bottom and have fun shopping!! ♥♥
