Holding On

Greeting and happy Sunday,

I have been a little bit on the grouchy side of life lately, and today, I am going to try to be positive and appreciate the many, many blessings in my life.  I hate funks.  And my funk has to do more with my real life, but the real life stuff that makes you forget to stop and enjoy life.  So, as the title suggests, I am holding on to my zen.

And that leads to my little run out to my garden house in SL.  I recently acquired new land and I love little glass garden houses.  You can find some of the items I used down below in the credits.  At the time, I was also sifting through my inventory and I settled on this outfit–it was so comfortable looking.

See my cute shorts–They are by Paper Arrow who debuted I believe around the summer time, and I have been impressed with their releases for many reasons.  They release footwear, accessories, and clothes.  Their clothes also include fittings for Maitreya, Slink Original and Hourglass, Belleza Isis, Freya, and standard sizes.  I mean–I know that takes lots of work, so I am very appreciative to any designer that includes so many options.  As a shopper, I tend to gravitate to those brands, which is why I also have a Blueberry item on.  Both brands think of all shoppers and the mesh bodies they wear when they create, and that is pretty cool.  You don’t have to worry–will it fit me?  You can find the cute shorts I’m wearing at The Season Story–they come in a plethora of patterns that connect to that winter theme.  The fit is amazing.  You will absolutely adore them.   Is anyone else really excited to see more and more Slink Hourglass items!?  I am.

The minute I demo’d the Tableau hair, Shocking Hair, I knew I wanted it.  Lots of attitude and I love their blonde shades.  I loved the bangs, the way it parted, and the profile of the hair is also pretty killer.  You can find it at Collabor88.  And I am obsessed with mesh heads, so seeing that Glam Affair made appliers for LOGO and Catwa  for Collabor88 made me squeal–another brand who keeps the shoppers in mind and always releases mesh head appliers mixed with system skins.  Glam Affair Lia for Catwa is so soft, with some pouty lips that she fit my mood perfectly, especially for my picture.

Not normally so chatty, but I felt like writing something this morning!  Cheers to keeping yourself in zen mode this coming week.

put the past away

 

 

I decided to try out Sweet Lips version two by PXL creations.  I like it better than the first version, but honestly I hadn’t taken my mesh head off in weeks, so I was startled at how I looked, so then adding a mesh part, I am still adjusting to the look of me.  If you are into Sweet Lips and Glam Affair, you should stop by and pick up the Summer V3 skin available at Collabor88 with the Sweet Lips applier.  Mesh parts will always have some shadow cast issues, but it does give you more realistic lips if you aren’t a mesh head fanatic.

Ariskea also has a hair accessory out free for her VIP members. It is stunning. Don’t worry if you are not in the group.  You can pay the very reasonable VIP group fee and still have this beautiful piece.

If you need a gown, I am going to suggest K E L I N I.  The red Indian Dream dress is a beautiful design.  I do wish it was more mesh body friendly, but have found when gowns try to be unique and do things out of the box, they often have to ignore the limits of mesh bodies.  You can see the back of the dress below.  It is sheer, and if wearing a mesh body it does poke through a bit, but not enough for me to personal care.  I even enjoyed a night out at The Chamber in this dress!  …and I might have had some guys message me telling me how beautiful it was even though I was sitting on my boyfriend’s lap, sooooooo it can possibly be a conversation starter!

free moments stolen under the sun

I think my favorite purchase in this photo is that little paper boat purse available at Kustom9.  It just is so adorable.  Isn’t it?  Of course, my outfits are super cute as well.  Shai is creating beautiful clothing, and I can’t wait to see what they do next.  My outfit on the right by Casa del Shai can be found at Kustom9.  The Secret Store also puts out such marvelous designs.  This particular set had some variations to the outfit, and I loved how you could mix and match them (style and color) to form endless looks.

Do I look too similar in this photo?  I tried to look different because well, I didn’t want two of  me in the same picture! Different skin, but same brand-Glam Affair. I think I look very different. I made one shape in 15 minutes and the other is my normal shape (left).  I photoshopped them together into the same photo.  It is just easier for my system if I do that, and I am slow, so asking for someone to pose with me would seriously be torture for them. I take forever and then some.
