The Goddess Of Events?

I’m feeling a bit like the Goddess Of Events right now… so many wonderful events.

This look features items from 7 different current events. My hair is Tableau Vivant for Collabor88, the dress is Coquet for The Theme Park, the garden table is Collage for TLC’s The Garden, and the food is also from The Garden, by Ispachi and my olive branch wreath is Lark for TLC’s The Boutique. The beautiful lemon trees are from Dysfunctional Designs for The Home Show.

Goddess At Sunset

My beautiful skin is by Essences for the new edition of The Seasons Story. This is Amaranth, and I love the glossy lips these skins have.

I’m getting ready to go away for our 10th anniversary, but I wanted to quickly share some of the goodies from The Home Show. No time for my usual chatter, so just trust me that it’s all awesome and you need to go. Like. Now.

The best therapy is best friends

I’m really lucky. I have several best friends in SL, all of whom I consider best friends in both worlds. There’s the sister of my heart, mine Isley, whom I just adore and who is so much like me it’s sometimes a bit scary, but in a good way. There’s my BFF Rosa, who is the best friend I’ve ever had in any world, and who will listen to me no matter how crazy I am at the time. And then there’s my Charisma, who makes a guest appearance in this post. My silly, cute, funny and irreverent Charisma whose newest game is to hang on me like a koala. Without my friends and the love of my husband (who is my husband in both lives, and who is the ultimate best friend), the past couple of months would’ve been unbearable. I’m not gonna go into a lot of detail, but many of you know I have fibromyalgia, and suffice it to say it’s been pretty awful recently… and there’s just been a lot of RL stress, too. I’m settling into a routine with it all, thankfully, but it’s definitely been a rough road recently.

So I dedicate this post to my friends… the ones I named and the ones I haven’t. Thank you all for listening, for being there for me, for checking up on me. I love you guys, and I am very grateful.

Got yer back

The best news is that Sunday is our 10th RL wedding anniversary (and 5th in SL, because yes, we got married on our RL anniversary). And we’re taking a much needed trip. But don’t worry, I will have another post or two before that because The Home Show just opened and I’m decorating my heart out right now, preparing to show you some of the goodies available there!

Meet Marina & Jemma

This is the final weekend of Skin Fair 2014. Sad, right? But the good news is you still have time to hurry over and explore the three fabulous sims worth of skins!

I have two skins to show you in this post. First up is Jemma by Clef De Peau. This was an unknown to me store, but I fell in love with this skin’s haughty and regal face!

Jemma by Clef De Peau

I took advantage of the feeling of this skin, and dressed in ISON’s gorgeous suit that is available at the current round of Collabor88. My hair from Truth, bag from Glam Affair and shoes from fri.day are also all items you’ll find at March’s Collab!

Shopping break

The other skin I want to show you today is Marina by okkbye. What drew me to this skin were the lush, pouty lips. And, well… it reminded me of a certain Vulcan science officer (and no, not Mr. Spock!). So, I decided to RP it up for this look. In case you haven’t heard, E! Eclectic Apparel is closing their inworld store due to RL being too busy. In store items are all marked down to L$75, including the SciFi dress I’m wearing for this post!

Marina by okkbye

This look also gave me an excuse to use the Prosper version of my SLink hands, something I’ve been wanting and waiting to do for quite some time. Also, in the background you can see the gorgeous Alloy house from Pixel Mode that is available at The Garden. I plan to do more detailed pics of this lovely home in the near future, so stay tuned for that!

Live Long

You will find Clef De Peau on Sim 2 and okkbye on Sim 3 at Skin Fair.

Parisian Spring

Hi! I wanted to take a minute to welcome in spring, and to show you one of the gorgeous new faces from Essences available at Skin Fair (Essences is on Sim 3). Meet Paris! I really, really love this skin. It’s youthful, but not super young. I love the lightly glossy lips, too.

Paris by Essences

My gorgeous jewelry is the Satine set by Cae available at Serafilms tribute to Moulin Rouge. Moulin Rouge is one of those movies I keep meaning to see. I know, I know. My cute little dress is by SySy’s for the current round of My Attic. It comes in a variety of pretty colors and I love it because it’s simple which makes it versatile. It will be easy to dress up (or down!) depending on your needs and wants. My super cute hair is also at My Attic, from Tableau Vivant.

Spring Dreams

Oh, and did I mention the dress has matching sandals!?! Yep, SySy did SLink add-on sandals for My Attic, too. They are the perfect wedge heeled espadrilles that will enhance any spring/summer wardrobe!

Be sure to stop by all three events before they end to check out the goodies!

PS. About the location… I swear I LM’d the location. I always credit locations. Well, my entire LMs folder of places I go to shoot pics is gone (very sad) and this place mysteriously is not in my recent teleport history, either. I tried to find it again, but failed. So if anyone of you recognize the sim, please feel free to say so in the comments or send me a message and I will update this post! Thanks!

I’m in heaven

Skin Fair 2014 has begun! And anyone who knows me understands that, for me, this is SL heaven. In this post I have two gorgeous skins to show you, and I decided to take advantage of Skin Fair to also show off some lovely Blacklace lingerie!

First up, you may have heard all about SLink’s awesome new mesh head, Visage. There are two versions of Visage available at the moment, and I am showing you Becky. The incredibly awesome thing about this mesh head is that Siddean Munro of SLink has allowed other creators to make appliers for it, just like with her mesh hands and feet. Oh, the other awesome thing is that unlike the mesh heads I’ve tried in the past, you wear your own eyes with this head. Since I am really freakin’ picky about eyes, this was something that simply delighted me.

Glam Affair is among several stores to have released appliers for Visage, and their first release is a version of the brand new Romy skin that is having its debut at Skin Fair! I am wearing the Becky head with the Romy applier in the pictures below.

Daydream Believer

Here’s a closer look! I am using the open mouth facial expression. There are plenty of fun options, and I’ll show you some more in future posts!

Dreamer

Another skin that I fell hard for is the new release from League! Erin is just gorgeous. In fact, I couldn’t decide which makeup I loved most, so I uhm, fatpacked it. I decided to pair Erin with one of Blacklace’s St. Patrick’s Day offerings because it just seemed appropriate.

Irish

And here’s a close up of this gorgeous new face!

I have plenty more to show you from Skin Fair. You’ll find Glam Affair on Sim 1 and League on Sim 2. For more info, including Sim Maps, please visit the Skin Fair 2014 blog!

PS. Skin Fair is using a script counter. Please be sure to remove any unnecessary scripted items before you tp in. This is done to help reduce lag and make the event more easily navigated by all.

Arcade Afterglow…

The sounds of a seaside boardwalk. The fun of the games. The seemingly endless stuff you can win. The Arcade is wonderfully exhausting. So, here I am, in my gorgeous Scarlet Creative home from The Arcade, sitting in comfy Junk chair from the Arcade, surrounded by various Arcade goodies, like my cute little Kerfluffle sheep from Half+Deer. And my adorably messy Tableau Vivant hair!

Arcade Afterglow

All that pretend lever pulling makes an avatar hungry… thankfully MishMish had some yummy goodies in their machine, so I can have breakfast in my Scarlet Creative bed.

Breakfast In Bed

I made a lot of new friends… Intrigue and Schadenfreude have adorable little critters that just HAD to come home with me.

Bunbits & Kitts

Definitely be sure to check out this event… as usual it’s pretty freakin’ fantastic.
