Party Time!

Party Time

A new round of the sense event has opened, and I’m happy to share with you the exclusive, limited edition release for the event from AZUL. This is the “Gianna” gown in the event exclusive Topaz color. This color is simply stunning. Almost a rose gold type of color, it’s flattering for even those skin tones that normally cannot wear these colors like me. This has a long sleeve on one arm and bare other, as well as a slight skin showing on the bodice as well as the back. Additional flexi skirts add flow and dimension to the over look making it even more stunning than it already was. I includes versions for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Ebody, Ocacin, TMP, Tonic and Standard Fitted Mesh. Find this and 7 other colors at the Sense event going on now!

My nails are also an event exclusive by Alme. These are the “Delicate Flower” nails for the Bloom event also now open just in time for all those spring parties. With these you can mix and match as I have here, or choose to wear all the same design on each nail. The Hud works with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Vista Bento, Omega, and Tuty’s nails. There is also a separate HUD available for Astralia Nails as well at the event. These nails are perfectly coordinated with the neutral while color to go with almost any spring blossom outfit.

Special Evening

Special Evening

Date night is always special, and when you have a fantastic place to go on a romantic date it makes it even better. I came across this fantastic little role play restaurant tonight in my travels, and knew this would be a very special place for dinner. Come and see, and reservations are recommended to get the full service experience. It’s stunning and they have some great packages. It was the perfect place to show off this fantastic gown from Tiffany Designs available for this month’s round of SWANK – City of Angels. This applier gown (with classic avi version as well) has appliers for all the popular brands and is very detailed on the bodice. You add a lace trimmed skirt that is in three flexi pieces, along with hip accents and a back train that hangs from the neck along with included jewelry and hair accent for the complete effect. It’s stunning. Available in a fatpack of colors at this month’s SWANK event.

My Nails are a special offering that is exclusive to the Black Fair 2018 from ALME. These are the “Black Ombre” nails and have five different metals that ombre into the black polish. I chose to wear the gold with the gold accent nail – which is optional. These come in two different HUD versions – one is just for Astralia Nails, the other option works with Maitreya, Belleza, Tuty’s, Slink, OMEGA and Vista Bento.

Standing in the warmth of the morning sun, I love how it wraps my body in warmth, filling me with energy for a new day…… so why not open my arms and let as much of my body absorb the sun as I can……after all, when Master comes home my body will also be his and I’ll need all the energy I can gain……..

Spring Break on the Beach

Lakeside Beach

Spring Break….that time that signals winter is over, spring is here and summer is not too far off. It’s always great when you are able to spend some time out in the sun over spring break….and today was one of those days, an early beach day. Though the water was cold, the sun was warm and sitting in the warm sand was amazing and felt so good, I don’t want this break to be over. I put together a fun, casual beach look today from a few of the items I had in my inventory. Nothing forced per say, just things I wanted to wear and put together for you all. This beautiful floral kimono is from Fashionably Dead, the bikini from Blueberry, shoes from Monso and accessories from Real Evil and Slipper Originals (Elle Boutique). Find all the LM’s below if you want to find them for your own inventory as well.

My nails are amazing! This gorgeous nails are from Alme for the Tres Chic event going on now through April 10th. These are the “Love Ombre” gloss nails. Five different gloss ombres in mauves and naturals that are just perfect for those spring outfits. There is also a matte version of the nails available at the event. This hud works with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Vista Bento, Tuty’s and Omega nails. I think these are my new favorite nails!

Spring Forward

Spring Forward

This last weekend most of the US went on Daylight Savings time, which for me signals the beginning of Spring. I’ve noticed around SL that many of the winter sims are starting to loose their snowy blankets and that flowers are starting to poke up through the grasses. So, the fashions have also taken on a spring look, including this fantastic outfit from AZUL available this month at On9. This is the “Farva” dress and it’s perfect for those semi-formal or business occasions where you need something that has a little of a dressier look to it. It has a jacket with beautiful embossed texture paired with a pencil skirt that has some drama added in with a slit on the left leg. It is a mesh item that works with all the popular mesh bodies as well as standard bodies. There are also 8 different colors to choose from including the Aqua that I am wearing here. Find it at On9 for the month of March.

My gorgeous nails are perfect for almost any occasion and are a must have for every wardrobe. These are the “simplicity” nails from Alme and are available at the Blush event through March 18th, then will be at the Alme Mainstore. You can wear them with the same pattern on each nail, or mix them as I have done here for an opulent look. These are in a hud that has options for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Tuty’s, Vista Bento, and OMEGA nails. Be sure to pick these up and give your nails a gorgeous upgrade today!

Spring Dalias

Dalia

It’s warming up all around Second Life, with spring beginning to show on sims and lots of outdoor locations to visit. So why not show off some amazing finds that are perfect for this time of year! Let’s start off with a gorgeous ensemble from Maci! entitled Dalia. There is the full set which comes with the top, pants, shoes, handbag and necklace available at the mainstore. Then there is also a skirt to add to the set that is a gift for members of the Fitmesh Fanatics Group, also available at the Maci Mainstore. This Outfit includes sizes ONLY for Maitreya, Slink & Belleza Mesh Bodies, so be sure to try the Demo before purchasing, but it fit me perfectly and I’m wearing the Maitreya Lara body. Beautiful, off the shoulder coral pink crop sweater is stylish and just what spring ordered. The pants have two versions, one for heels and one for flats. The included shoes are heels that work with high feet, and the handbag includes bento poses for both the right and left hand. Two versions of the necklace top off the look, one with gold cord and one with the rich salmon color. I love this and you will too.

Spring Ride

Dalia Handbag

My Nails are a wonderful new release from Alme at the Dollhouse event through March 20th. These beautiful nails can be worn as one of the designs on all fingers or toes, or you can mix them as I have done here. They work with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Tuty’s, Vista Bento and Omega.

Romantic Nails

Finally my makeup is brand new and available only at Skin Fair 2018 for the time being. This gorgeous eyeshadow is from Euphoric and is called “Milan”, and is for Catwa heads. The lipstick is from Huwe Cosmetics also for Catwa heads, and has a combination of matte and shiny lipsticks that are just the right colors and shine for spring. I know skin fair is one of the places you certainly want to visit! I found lots of new skins, tattoos and makeup that caught my attention while I was there. I’m sure you will find something new for your avatar as well! Skin Fair opens March 9th at 12:01pm to the public on two sims with lots to see!
