in the summertime

050717-1-003_001-FW

We’re having lovely summery weather for a change in Wales, it’s putting me in a great summertime mood!

Summerfest… 
If you haven’t been there yet,  you really need to visit Summerfest. Not only is the sim beautiful, there’s lots of great summery stuff to be had. I love this casual updo hair from Opale, just the right style for lounging on the beach!

The Project Se7en… 
My pretty dress is by GATO at The Project Se7en and comes in 5 print options, I love this pastel one though, there’s also an amazing pineapple print. My adorable bunny ears headband is a free gift at the event from pr!tty and the fan is from Serenity Style’s gacha set at the event.

Knot & Co… 
Saturday was new release day at Knot & Co and PLAAKA have released some beautiful outdoor furniture and decor. The sunbed, ottoman, oranges, chopping board and knife are all from this set. I’m also wearing brand new eyebags and eyebrows by Maririn Noel, also new at the event this week.

The Fantasy Collective…
The pretty lanterns here are by peaches, my nails by alme, and the bracelets by bubble, all at the brand new round of The Fantasy Collective which has returned after a bit of a break. I love when I can mix fantasy themed pieces into an everyday shot.

SaNaRae…
Last but not least, this swim ring is by katat0nik for SaNaRae, it comes in black, red and white (shown here) and has pose and no pose versions included.

The Crystal Heart Festival & Cubic Cherry… 
Look at the pretties Cubic Cherry has made for Crystal Heart Festival, the bodysuit and socks are both rares in their Magical Girl set. I love all the little details but especially the butterfly shaped bow, super cute!

My skin is also at The Crystal Heart Festival, one of the rares from more more’s yume set.

The Project Se7en and Pr!tty… 
This beautiful long, flowing hair by pr!tty is out right now at The Project Se7en, I love the gentle waves and volume of this style, all the hair is pulled over the shoulders for a beautiful, natural look.

SaNaRae and Tentacio… 
There’s some great bits and bobs at SaNaRae this round, I’m loving these eyebrows by LovelyAlien from their Fairy Makeup set at the event. Tentacio are also there with the Plastic Girl gacha set from which I’m wearing the pretty hair bows.

Time to step up

180617-1-001_001-FW

I made a couple of windlights recently, well, the same one in two colours, and I’m loving them so much, it’s really fun experimenting with the different sliders and seeing what effects you can achieve. Anyhow, here’s who I’m featuring today.

pr!tty… 
I love a high ponytail and pr!tty’s release for the latest Cutie Loot box is just adorable. A lovely wispy feel to this unrigged style and there’s an optional fringe too!

le fil casse… 
This pretty little skirt is by le fil casse for the first ever round of the Somber event. I’m loving the velvet texture and the lace trim. It comes in 18 colour options as well as a fatpack and as usual comes with fits for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass and Belleza Isis and Freya.

ionic… 
Back with some lovely new gacha sets at the current round of The Chapter Four, ionic have created some stunning pieces here. The stage and lights from the Fiesta set inspired my photo today, it’s so pretty! The base and lighting are separate too. I’ve also included a couple of pieces from the Small Things gacha which is also available at The Chapter Four, the detail in these little bits and bobs really make me smile. Here are the gacha keys so you can see for yourself.

keke… 
I love everything that Kean Kelly does and these dragonflies were an instant favourite as soon as I saw them. They were released for the latest Deco(c)rate box and come in turquoise (used here), purple and green. the little sparkles scattered among the dragonflies are so pretty.

FaMESHed… 
The current round is still going strong, one of my favourite pieces from this round is this beautiful open back top by Coco. I was so pleased that it fit so well with this skirt, I think it’s a really cute outfit. The canopy is also at FaMESHed, part of a bedroom set from Zerkalo.

Vintage Fair… 
My pose today is from Mila Poses’ Heini set, currently available at Vintage Fair. This is a four pose set and they come as poseballs as well as animation only versions, they are bento too!

Well I’m feeling very “pin-up” today thanks to some new goodies from Enfant Terrible, The Arcade and Cureless, here’s the details:

CURELESS… 
Cosmetic Fair will be opening for a new round on 15th with the theme of “Red Hot Summer” and Kaorinette of CURELESS has absolutely nailed it with this gorgeous makeup set and eye appliers. The makeup hud has 8 eye options and three lip colours for CATWA and Omega compatible heads. There’s also a fantastic scar set with three colour options as well as a pack of eye appliers in 8 colours with three pupil options for each.

Liaison Collaborative & Enfant Terrible… 
I’m showcasing a couple more items from the current round including Enfant Terrible’s pretty Daisy Dress. This beauty comes in Slink and Maitreya fits and in a whopping 11 colours. It fits beautifully, I really like the button and bow detailing on the front.

My pose by Le Poppycock is also at TLC, from the Stay Cool gacha set.

Pr!tty… 
My lovely swishy hair is brand new for The Chapter Four from pr!tty. Her hairs are just getting better and better and this one is definitely a favourite, I love the sense of movement it gives.

The Arcade & Half-Deer… 
I have some more goodies from Arcade to share with you including these killer heels from Phedora’s Belladonna set and fishies from HEXtraordinary’s Betta Aquariums set.

These delightful mer-kitties are Half-Deer’s second machine at the event. The flying one is one of the rares in the set and is an animated companion pet.

Halogen also has these beautiful trees out at Collabor88, they come in several varieties and colour options, I think they’re absolutely beautiful, especially the little lights!

Another new subscription box has hit the grid this month, Pandora’s Box, which caters to the dark hearts among you. May’s theme is Original Goth and contains a lovely selection of items from 10 different creators. I’m showing off a few items here including the fabulous eyeshadow and lipstick by NOX, headchain by Zombie Suicide and pose with candle prop by Belle Poses.

The Pandora’s Box group costs 1500L to join up until 22nd of the month when the box is released, you can still purchase the box until the 30th of the month by joining the group but the cost will increase to 2500L. The group will be cleared on 30th of each month in preparation for the next one.

Note that this is a mystery box so you won’t see what’s inside until it’s released, I love surprises!

My dress is a new mainstore release by Enfant Terrible, the Dreamy Gown comes in Slink and Maitreya fits and in lots of pretty colours, I’m wearing black here of course! The harness underneath the dress is another Enfant Terrible item, part of the Shiva set out now at Shiny Shabby.

I have a ton of cute new stuff to share with you today so let’s get started!

It’s been a while since we had a new skin from CURELESS but oh my, d.Stramonium was well worth the wait! She’s a CATWA applier with/without brows and with a red lipstick option too, she’s really beautiful as you can see, the lips are just amazing. You’ll find this beauty at The Kawaii Project which opens on 20th May.

Moving on, I’m wearing some bits and bobs from ROMP, the shrug is from Cubic Cherry’s Mian set which also includes pants and pasties. This set comes in latex and plain versions and in four colour options. The long sleeves on the shrug are adorable! The undies I’m wearing are also brand new for ROMP by Violent Seduction, top quality as usual and fitted for Maitreya, this set is a real treat. This set comes in colors, latex, monochrome, nudes, pastels and pinks with a little hud for each set with four colour choices.

The hair I’m wearing is a beautiful long style by pr!tty for the current round of Enchantment which is Rapunzel themed! You’ll also find my necklace and belt there, they’re by Una and part of a larger set.

Look at my gorgeous fluffy ice-cream purse! I really want one of these in rl too! This one is by Sweet Thing and is out now at Kustom 9. The fatpack is on offer for the price of a single colour for the duration of the event and includes options for the cone, ice-cream and details.

The little pet is another marvellous creation by comet, who make the most adorable creatures. This lovely is for Whimsical which opens on 18th May and is a rare in the dreamy slugs gacha set.

The lovely sofa I’m reclining on is by Half-Deer at Collabor88. It comes in four colours and with lots of poses included. My pretty sparkles are new by Cole’s Corner for The Secret Affair, there are also kawaii cupcakes and sushi sticker versions available.

Wow! I kind of crammed a lot in there, didn’t I, you’ll find all the credits below as usual, happy shopping!
