The Interview

I was sitting down to take this picture for my blog and I don’t know .. all of a sudden I felt like I was in an interview with someone of importance.  Not that anything I would have to really say is that important.  But the vibe of the picture was just wow.  I really was digging on the feeling of this picture and it just came together.  So how are you lovely people doing today?

There are so many events, sales, and new releases going on! Gosh, I have so much to cover as I discover them.  For instance, Exile has released new hair at the mainstore.  TWO of them! This is one … but omgosh they are adorable.  I swear I repeat the same things over and over about a store that I just love.  But his blonds are killing it! I mean I remember back in the day when it was like ’06 and blonds couldn’t be worn that much unless you wanted to be like barbie with the huge glow.  I couldn’t pull it off.  But slowly over time the color has been coming out so well with designers.  This mid-length hair style is just perfect for those days when you are just wanting to let it hang down and be comfortable.

I then hit up ERRACTIC because that store is having a sale for a bit ALL ITEMS ARE 50% off!! So if you are missing some of your favorite sets or peices, THIS is the time to go over there and hit them up and get all you want.  These things don’t last long.  On that its been packed and took me a bit to get in.  So maybe when you are all reading this you can get in.  I will cross my fingers for you.  I picked up this very pretty dress and a ton of other things while there.  The floral patter on this blue just called to me when I seen it.  So it now totally belongs in my collection of summery/spring like items.

Cae is once again participating in the FaMESHed Round.  Which I have to say the new build is gorgeous.  Despite what people were saying I was loving on the last design too.  The wide open spaces.  But this is nice too.  Easier to navigate for those of you non cammers that don’t get around so well … pfft.  (yep I went there).  But You can find this gorgeous necklace set with earrings at the new round.  I do find it hard to wear earrings, I think its more because my choice of hair styles are that tend to frame my face.  But that doesn’t mean I don’t love them nor that I don’t have them.  I need to start finding more up-do like hairs to showcase the earrings.  But with all of Cae’s items you get a HUD that allows you to change the colors of the stones and the metal and its just perfect for that little bit of accessorizing.

The last thing I want to talk about before I end my blog is Gacha Garden is open and I found the cutest little closet set for girls.  You have your choice of light or dark.  For this look I am using my light set.  You play the machine and you have a chance to win.  I am really enjoying that aesthetic of how it looks and the sweetness the lighter colors give.  If you are interested in the darker one, its more goth with its red and blacks.  So it caters to all! So make sure you head on over and check it out before the event ends.  But you got time don’t worry.

All links are below … and if you wanna follow me or Caleb on flickr… you can find that information on the right 😀

Coffee Please …

Hi Everyone!

Slowly over the past month I have been working on my little Cafe that Caleb so sweetly helped me win the missing peices.  We played several machines to win these items.  BUT that isn’t what this post is about, I will be making a cafe post soon! ♥ I am L O V I N G that technique that I posted about in my last blog on how to make your background blurry while your avi looks pristine.  I cannot believe I was doing this all wrong all the long.  I cant even right now.  This is my second take.  But if you need a reminder and don’t want to go looking back … here CLICK THIS

Sooo my look! This is a fall look for me. Sweaters, skirts, and boots oh my! Some of this I had in my inventory already and isn’t new so you can get them at the main stores. But my skirt is brand new from UBER its by Just Because.  This is a beautiful piece to play with.  What I adore the most is that it comes in two different types, first there is a tight fit for those OVER the hem looks, and then you have the loose fit that will allow you to wear tucked in type tops and body suits.  There are many looks you can create with this skirt, and what I love is boots are perfect to wear underneath them.

I had this sweater a long time now, I really love the off the shoulder look, its pink and rawr.  What I really like about this top is that the sweater looks like a natural sweater.  What I really dislike about SL sweaters for the most part is that the stitching looks big. I hope I am saying that right.  But this one looks normal.

Gacha Garden will be opening soon.  And Cae done it again .. this bracelet is catered to the fall.  Leaves and acorns all over.  I am linking a picture of what you can get down below.  But this is so pretty! I mean you can wear the charms you want, or not.  There are many colors to choose from when you are wearing the gem versions, also there is the option to change the color of the metals, there are three all together.

So, that is all there is for now.  Check out the creds below to find out more information. ♥ Have fun shopping.

Booty Booty Booty

Hello my pretty people, I am back! I even brought the boyfriend with me too.  So we did a little fun photo shoot with the new Apple May outfit.  This lovely jeans and top set is perfect in so many ways.  For them girls that have smaller booties that wanna have a pop once in a while, whelp you can totally have that in these.  As you can see King Caleb here, had no issue with the size of the booty on these pants.  I will say that size does change with your slider so if you have a small booty you will have a smaller size.  I have what I believe is a medium butt soooo… my booty was a bit bigger ♥

With these pants there is a lace halter top that is tied in the back its cute.  The front of the pants has lace on them! These are extremely detailed and look so good.  The pants are made in the skinny jean version so tight around the legs.  I love how you can wear these with heels.   So you might be asking how did the butt grabbing commence, well, in typical male fashion – girl walks by – man see’s the butt – man can’t help himself and BAM out comes the camera and the picture taking happens and you know he had to have it.  KIDDING – I know all men aren’t like that.  But we figured it was the perfect opportunity to be a little more immature in our lives.  As if we don’t do that enough.  Besides, look at his classic face.  Like Hey girl HEEEEEY.  hahahaha  — I will update where this outfit can be found as soon as that information is released ♥

Tropical Afternoon Treats

Some of my favorite everyday fruits are peaches and strawberries, but in this summer heat, I treated myself to some more tropical fruits to cool off under the shade of trees by the stream – some juicy watermelon, succulent pineapple, and heavenly sweet mangosteen. With mangosteen, mainly native to Southeast Asian, is a bit more rare to find. Luckily I do not have to travel far as Vivian Omizu, creator of Pillows, brought a great collection of mouth-watering fruits, including a basket of mangosteen, into SL for us.

This batch of sweet and tangy mangosteen brings me back to childhood. Growing up in an Asian household, eating fruit was mainly a family event/dessert. Mangos, lychee, longyan were common to snack on, but mangosteen was not common at all for my family. But when we were able to find some ripe assortments from a local vendor, we were in heaven. As simple as something like eating fruit together as a family, though it might seem so uneventful, these times were happy times. Sweetness to satiate the sweet tooth in me, surrounded by the love of family, taking the time to relax and enjoy the intriguing way food is integrated in our culture.

These were happy moments, and now, I reflect upon this as I munch on my mangosteen in serene solitude with the sound of the ocean waves splashing upon the shore nearby, and soothed by the gentle lullaby of the running stream near my cabin on the island. Funny how something as simple as eating some fruit can bring back such potent memories of love and belonging.

You dont know me …

Hello beautiful people.  Gosh, I am not even sure where to start with this post.  I am really really excited about one thing though.  So I guess I will start there.  Truth has secretly working on a project, and its new hair, and when I say new hair, this hair is so new that we don’t even have all the details on it yet.  So this was sent out in the group if you are the VIP that is.  This hair, has a hud that will allow you to style it.  You can choose to make the longer parts by your shoulders go to the back or to the front of your Av.  BUT … along with this there are new colors, and when I say new colors, I mean like damn … The huds are so packed filled with new colors its insane, it took me about an hour to go through all the choices and figure out just what I liked.  This is a really hard choice for me, because I love so many colors in these packs that I think I will have to just say forget it and get the fatpacks.  There is no help for me now.  I mean really the best way is to see for yourself and join his group and get the hair.  Yes, there is a fee … but the gifts each month are worth what you spend in the group.  Believe me on that one.

So next up is one of my favorite accessories designers, I have two things by her.. well three things by her on my body.  The smitten ring which actually I am always wearing because its my favorite.  But her two new items are the bracelet on my arm and the choker around my neck.   So lets start with my arm.  The bracelet is a gacha item at the The Gacha Garden, here you will get the base, and then you will play for the trinkets.  They are all about the spirits in this one, and boy do they look yummy, and they even have little huds that allow you to change up the looks and the jewels so you can make it your own personal design.  Which is one of my favorites about her stuff.  Then you have the choker around my neck, which can also be used as a collar if you have a certain person in your life that you trust to give your neck too 😀  I do find this piece to be very breathtaking.  Its simple and yet so damn elegant and I just love it.  Its easy to use and fix to fit your av. This too has a HUD that allows you to change the details and believe it has many looks.   I have close ups of the items in the pictures at the end of my post.

Now finally and not least at all is the Blueberry set I am wearing … why this woman do this to me .. I mean can she not put out something I would want?  I guess that is what makes her successful.  She makes the things that all of us want.  I want it all … I will just get it all.  Fatpack heaven here I come.  This top and short set is just like the rest of her items supurb.  It fits the SL body perfect if you are using mesh, and the Maitreya booty for these pants are like gold.  I know that when I am wearing her items, I will be going out in the best I got.  I am sure lots of you feel that way and if you are new to her stuff, really get on the bandwagon.  It will be fine…you will survive … your money wont but at least you will own the store haha.  But seriously go check it all out and get the goodies.  We all want the goodies.

Upclose…

Hello lovelies! Today we are gonna get a little close and closer ♥  Its been a while since I done a really close picture that didnt have my face in it … but I really liked this lingerie set.  Apple May Designs has placed out this gorgeous set.  You can find it at the Fetish Fair, its a bra, panties and straps.  The straps come in three different colors, the metal changes colors too, as well as the bow that is on the booty.   The bra and panties come in a variety of colors too! Its a sexy little set that you can definatly have some fun in 😛

I am pairing it with something sweet.  I am in love with Cae when she places out the sets that have charms with them.  For Valentines day just in time you can get this amazing little bracelet, and play the gacha to win the charms.  I did include her ad at the bottom of the blog so you can see what charms you can win! There are a total of 10 charms and one of those are the rare.  You can find this item at this round of The Gacha Garden.  So make sure you go and check it out. 

This is was a short and sweet post, so make sure you check out the two events and shop your hearts out, I am sure there are many items you will find and want in your inventory ♥
