To Sir With Love

The With Love Hunt is just around the corner and you don't want to miss out! Brought to you by Chic Management, it begins at the Cheeky Pea main store on November 30th at 4 PM SLT. 76 awesome designers will put out a product worth 400L or more for only 10L. Talk about a steal! For a full list of participating stores, go here. One of my favorite items from the hunt has to be this red cape from DIRAM. It has really put me in the holiday mood and I've been wearing it as I switch over my land to winter. I think that this is one outfit I'll be sticking with for a while.

Buzzzz

Bees Through the Seasons has started, a small month long event that will come to the grid four times a year. The designers have focused their products around bees and everything is just adorable. Jewelry and accessories seem to be a huge part of this event but this dress from Ingenue really stood out. It comes in a variety of colors but I decided to go with a golden yellow. So get your buzzzz on and head over to see what you like.

Dance Like No One Is Watching

Around The World is still going on and you have until November 29th to visit and get your goodies. Today I'm showcasing two designers from North America, Apple May Designs and Captivity Co. poses. My cute long sleeve crop top is from Apple May and comes in a variety of designs to pin point locations all over North America. Captivity Co. has poses out to emulate break dancing, a style of street dancing that began in NYC in the 1970s.


I'll admit that using these dance poses was a lot of fun. I constantly find myself dancing in RL, even if I do look like a goof. In other news, TRUTH released two new hair styles and I'm wearing Nyx. These styles are 50% off for the holiday weekend so don't miss out.

The First Snow

There's nothing like the first snow of the season and we actually had ours a few weeks ago, right after the hurricane. The accumulation was about four inches but it was gone in a few days. I do prefer the snow in SL though. I can wear what I want, I don't get cold or wet and the snow itself doesn't get dirty and gross from sand and snowplows. This Wynter skin from Belleza is great to wear for that snowy mood. It is out for Fifty Linden Friday so don't forget to pick it up at this steal of a price.


Izzie Button always does a fantastic job dressing up her sim for the season so of course when I put on my earmuffs, mittens and boots I headed over there. Not only is it beautiful, but there are some fantastic pose props rezzed all over, like this reindeer.

Ice Queen

The latest and final round of FAIR has started and you can get this great mesh formal dress there from Apple May. It really put me in a winter mood so I sought out some snow to add to the feel. A new mesh jewelry store has made it's debut. The store is called Cae and it made its debut at TRUTH District. The lovely jewelry is made by Caelan Hancroft and each collection is stylish and gorgeous. I couldn't help but wear some of it. It's all texture change with various metal options so you are sure to find something you love.

*If you are curious about the fog effect I used in the photo Miss Harlow Heslop recently did a tutorial on it and you can read about it here. I love it when other SL photographers/bloggers share their latest tricks*

No Strings Attached

Dawn came before I knew it. I rolled over to come face to face with my choice from the night before and although he was cute enough, I didn't want to have that conversation about where things would go for here. No strings is all I wanted and I hope he felt the same, although I wasn't sticking around to find out. I quickly gathered my shoes and jewelry, working quietly so as not to wake him. I never did find my underwear though. I guess he will just have a memento of the crazy night we spent together.

Unhinged

If you haven't heard, there is a gacha festival that hit the grid yesterday called Unhinged. This festival is a charity event for Eku Zhong who needs a special surgery and prosthesis to fix a damaged area in her skull. Without this surgery, simple actions like chewing and yawning could cause more damage. This gacha festival is skull themed and 75% of the funds from the gacha play will go to a fund for Eku's medical expenses. You can read more details about this festival here.

I'm wearing three of the designers that are participating in this festival, Geometry, lassitude & ennui and pose monster. So head to festival, have a go at a gacha and listen to some awesome music.

Sleepless in Seattle

Yes I know the post name is a cliche but if you know me at all then you are familiar with the fact that I'm an insomniac. This dress is called Seattle and is available from Geometry for Around The World. It's available in 12 colors but I chose grey since I felt it best represented a city known for it's rainy weather. Around the World is officially open to the public today so be sure to stop by and check out each region.

Although I couldn't find a suitable Seattle sim, I finally got to check out the RP sim Venexia. It's amazingly well done and my one picture does not do it any sort of justice but I highly suggest checking it out. Just remember that in order to enter the city you do need to wear a visitor tag as it is a very active role play sim.

Huntress

A new event is coming to the grid called Around the World starting November 15 at 12PM SLT, brought to you by The Ego Co. Nine world regions will be represented by various designers and you can read more about it and the creators involved here. FAKE will be representing Africa and has this awesome skin called Lona in two tones, caramel and dark chocolate.


The skin comes in six different makeups, one of which is a clean version. I'm wearing Protector in caramel and felt like a bit of a huntress in this native skin. Remember, less than a day until this amazing event is opened to the public.

Just Breathe

Morning everyone! Yesterday was a crazy day so I'm finally getting around to doing a post. It helps that I'm free of the twins for a few hours. There are still a few days left to pick up goodies from this round of Zodiac. My dress is from Bilo and comes in a variety of colors, a great look for the end of fall. Also available at Zodiac Scorpio are my Ingenue shoes and lassitude & ennui key necklace. The all fit together so nicely that I couldn't help but make them into an outfit.


The other thing I'm excited to show you is a new skin! Leafy finally released Amethyst and it is so gorgeous. I love the face on it, I feel so delicate and beautiful. It's definitely worth demoing and if you are anything like me, you will just fall in love with it.

Sleek in Silver

Good morning all, its Sunday so make the best of it before a new weeks starts. I discovered a store that is new to me called Mimikri. They have some cute mesh items and my favorites have to be these pants and top. I love skinny leather pants in world and these silver ones are super sleek. I like that the top has chunky sequins on the chest but that the arms are plain. I went exploring the sim that is home to :) BCC and I love the mix of snow and water. I'm definitely not ready for snow in RL even though we got about 4 inches the other day. The beauty of SL is that I can wear cute peep toes in the snow and stay dry and warm.

Sweat It Out

Scorpio is the latest round of Zodiac and runs until November 16th. PILOT and {.:expseur:.} have come together to bring us this awesome mesh workout equipment for this round. Everything pictured is available as part of the coates cardio and morello weight bench sets. The weight bench and aerobic step both have various animations in them, as does the exercise ball which is not shown. I find that when I'm feeling down and not myself, working out helps a great deal. So go on, sweat it out and pump up some endorphins this weekend!
