Just a Sip of Wine

Hey! Happy weekend! I have a fashion post for you today featuring some fab newness from Fishy Strawberry! Now, I’ve been a fan of them for yearssss, from way back in the pre-mesh days when they did everything on clothing layers and with sculpties.  Well, back in those days I had some fave pieces that I have missed a lot in recent years and one of those were the Ballet Leggings.  So imagine how excited and utterly geeked I was when I saw their release for Fameshed this month is an update of those very Ballet Leggings!! Needless to say I had to run down and grab them which I then paired with the new Belted Tunic top that they did for The Dressing Room.  My super cute and furry bag is from Jian and is a RARE for the Gacha Garden.  The bag and pup are both texture change and were the perfect accessory as I ventured out into the city.

For A Winter Walk

Hey there lovelies! New day and new blog post for you!  This one is filled with both fabulous Home and Garden along with lots of new  and equally fab new fashion.  Wearing an updated head for Genesis Lab also called Marie.  She is so very pretty and even more so when wearing lipstick from Nova.  Also must mention this new jewelry set from Cae that includes four different strands ( I’m only wearing one of them) that includes the option to wear all four, just one or any combination your heart desires.  The deer family from Jian comes with the choice of animated or static posed deers that both stand and sleep; I’m using all animated ones except for the sleeping fawn.

After Holiday Shopping

look 799_002
Not only did I never think I’d buy a mesh head I certainly never thought I’d be blogging one, but welp here is today’s post.  A clear reminder to never say never.  After hearing Kirsten Corleone talk about Genesis Lab on Plurk I got curious about checking out their VIP group and then of-course demoing their new Nicole 2.0 head at Collabor88 I found myself drawn to this head.  She was so adorable and even more so when I added the Sonya skin applier on her, also available at C88.  This won’t be my everyday face because I love my regular face too much but there is something fun in being able to wear a head which looks so much more real.  I can see the appeal of mesh heads now more than I could before, that’s for sure.

As Fall Comes To A Close

Today’s post is filled with incredible new items from a brand new event Wayward Market!  Brought to you by the fabulous Wayward Events this event will focus on the top notch quality you are used to but with a bit of a twist!  The twist is that every round will be a different group of creators taking part, Wayward Market will work at bringing in less known/new creators and rotating/mixing them with creators we already know and love.  This should keep each round fresh and besides giving more creators the opportunity to be a part of a fantastic event it will give us, the customers, more uniqueness to look forward too! For more information on the event and on Wayward Events in general head over to their Main Website.

Never Enough Coffee or Shopping

So, I’m gonna start out with some shameless self promotion today and mention that I was nominated for Favorite Fashion Blogger for the Avi Choice Awards!  I am seriously in shock about it but feel honored that someone thought enough about me to nominate me! So if you are so inclined please go to the link above and vote for me and for all your favorites in the fashion circles of SL!

Today’s outfit is one that came together effortlessly, which is always my favorite kinds.  So I probably don’t have to say how much I love this look, however,I do want to make special mention of two things.  The first is Cynful’s Fall-In-Line top which comes with three different options.  The shirt comes with a vest that you can wear with the top or on it’s own, or you can wear the shirt, like I am. by itself as well.  This is all included when you purchase buy vest color and can then add or remove what you want by hud that is included.  My second mention is the Quad jewelry set from Cae that comes with a hud that allows you to show or hide each of the four stands of necklace (I’m using three) which lets you customize for so many different looks, it also includes a large variety of metal and jewel color options on the hud as well.  My location today was the gorgeous Loch Nobel sim that has both a fabulous town to explore or sit and relax as well as surrounding countryside to enjoy!
