Light Up the Night

Lighting Up The Night

Summer nights outside, by the water, what could be better?! Especially when you light up the world for that special someone who is with you. It’s easy to do in this amazing outfit comprised of pieces that are newly released from AZUL, Alme and EMO-tions.

Up first is my amazing gown from AZUL. This is the “Maile” gown in Iolite, one of 17 different colors available, 2 of which are limited edition colors, now on the marketplace and at the AZUL Mainstore. This gown has a strapless bodice with slight ruching, an open left side trimmed with a sequined design, flexi skirts and train with an ombre color fade, and optional sleeves that come to a point at the hand. This is the gown that was created for MSL/USA in her recent competition. It’s now available to all! I love it – all of the colors are just stunning. Included mesh versions are: maitreya, belleza, Ebody, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, standard and Tonic versions.

Next is my beautiful nails, part of a collection for The Guardians gacha event running now through July 31st. This is from Alme. I’m wearing the Common 9 polish and it goes perfectly with my gown. This set has 10 commons and 2 Rares and 2 Gifts of the Guardians available for you to win. Each play is just 50L. The Gift of the Guardians are awarded at random after 15 pulls of the gacha machine. These special polishes will be retired after the event, and will not be available at the Alme mainstore like the others will, so be sure to get yours at the event through July 31st.

Cute Sailor Gacha Common 9 Nails

Finally this gorgeous updo is from EMO-tions and was released for Hair Fair 2017. Options include the extra tendril pieces and the flowers which come in two color varieties, both included in the pack you choose. I choose the blondes. The best part is that a portion of your purchase at Hair Fair 2017 goes to Wigs for Kids to help children who have lost their hair. For more information on the charity and the event, visit the EMO-tions booth at Hair Fair 2017 before July 15th.

Black Fair Aria

Aria

The Black Fair 2017 is open and has some amazing finds as always. I always look forward to this event since the top designers participate and always have an exclusive that is to die for. AZUL is there with just such an exclusive with “Aria” in Onyx. This amazing mesh gown has a tank style neckline that is draped gently at the bust, and then has a full side slit up the left leg. Wispy, sheer skirt pieces whip about your body for a feminine touch so true to AZUL. It all ends with your choice of white or black pearl adornments up the right side and a huge cluster at the left hip. Stunning. Who doesn’t love white and black – so timeless and so classic. It’s only at the Black Fair 2017 through April 21, so don’t miss this!

My Nails are also only available right now at the Black Fair. These are from Alme. The “Black Metal French” hud has several tip choices including silver, chrome, bronze, gold and black. You can wear one as I have or mix and match using the hud and your hand menus. These nails come in two HUD choices – the standard HUD works with slink, maitreya (including the new bento update I’m wearing here), Belleza, OMEGA, Tuty’s and Vista Bento. There is also a HUD for the new Astralia Mesh Nails available separately. These are fantastic and a MUST have.

Sunday is for…….

Sunday is For...

What is your Sunday for? For me today was about relaxing. I haven’t had a chance to do that in a while. So finding a great place just to sit and relax a bit was exactly what I needed to do today. This fantastic location at Elvenshire – Mystical Fae Forest was just the place to sit and relax in a tranquil, beautifully decorated location. It was also the perfect place to snap this outfit today and share it all with you. First up is my dress from Lyrical B!zarre Templates, the “Aleya” dress for the Buy Now March event taking place for a few more days on the Marketplace only. This is a system layer dress that comes with OMEGA Hud to allow it to work with your favorite mesh body. I’m wearing the Maitreya Lara here and used the OMEGA applier HUD flawlessly. There is a small skirt piece to wear with it that is mesh and in 5 common sizes. The dress is full perms for those of you who are designers and wish to work your own magic with it, or it comes with four colors already ready to go – blue, silver, pink and gold.

Sunday is For Closeups

My Jewelry is also from Lyrical B!zarre Templates for the Hash in Wonderland Event running through March 30th. This set is called “Drink Me” set and is a take on Alice in Wonderland for the event. Silver mesh bottles with silver Alice standing on top of the necklace bottle make up this set. Once again, it is full perms so you can customize it to your desire as well.

My Hair is a new release at enVOGUE’s mainstore called “Naomi”. This great updo has a loose bun on the top and whisps around the face. I’m wearing one of the colors in the light blondes pack, and also with the new CATWA hairbases by enVOGUE made to match their textures perfectly. Find both at the enVOGUE mainstore now.

Finally, my amazing nails are from Alme. These are the from the RARE HUD in the Fantasy Gacha at Lootbox for a limited time, then will return to the Alme. mainstore. These great nails are a mermaid scale motif to fit with the theme of the event. Appliers included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Omega, Tuty’s & Vista Bento. There are also two surprise huds that can be awarded by the gacha machine. Come and try your luck!

Under the Silver Moonlight

Under the Silver Moonlight

What is it about a pale silver moonlight that speaks to romance? I recently received this beautiful gown from AZUL and fell in love with it immediately, especially this fantastic silver/lavender color that is so unique and beautiful. This is the “Zaria” dress in iolite from Azul just released this past weekend. The beautiful, floral embossed, high neckline is combined with a satin knee length skirt, full sleeves and flowing flexi skirt additions. It comes with the stunning floral necklace you see here. Just beautiful. It is in 16 different color combinations and available now at the AZUL mainstore and on the marketplace.

My nails are from Alme. These are the Colorblock 2 nails available through today at Tres Chic, and then will be at the Alme. mainstore. They have a nude top, solid color thin line and then a black tip. One hud has five different color choices for the thin line, and allows you to use your nails with: slink, maitreya, belleza, Omega and bento nails.

Shiny, Shabby and New

The birdbath

A brand new round of Shiny Shabby has opened and this month I found a great ensemble assembled from items available at the event. First, I’m so thrilled that Lybra is once again creating amazing gowns. This one is spectacular. For Maitreya, the Adele Gown comes with a hud that allows you to change the color of the gown, the belt and also the metal trim. The full gown has two options, solid color, or the patterned you see here, both included. The back of the gown has a generous scoop as well. I love it! It comes in a variety of single color, color pack and fatpack options. I bought the pastels and love how you can mix and match the belt and gowns to create your own special look.

Also at the event this month, Zibska has eyeshadows that coordinate perfectly. For Lelutka and OMEGA, the Tonia eyeshadows are just the right colors. I’m wearing the OMEGA version here on my CATWA head. My hair is also at the event – from DeLa, this is the Skylar hair in blondes. Rich, natural look that went perfectly with the gown.

Tonia Shadows

Finally, from the Tres chic event for February, my nails are from Alme. The Colorblocking duo was exactly the right color combination to go with my gown. One hud does it all for slink, maitreya, omega, belleza and bento hands. It has 5 color duos in the hud, and you can wear them on fingers, toes, both or even a mix of all the colors for a unique look.

Spring Time is one of my favorite times of year both in RL and SL and shooting photos in SL is so much fun with the flowers and bright colors. Today I have for you a new release from AZUL – the Alice Gown. I’m wearing the limited edition color available on the marketplace only – champagne. This limited edition gown is straight out of a fairy tale for sure, and was created for Miss Virtual World Portugal 2017 as part of the national costume competition. Festive and fun, this is a wonderful gown to celebrate spring. With 12 different colors, one will be sure to be your favorite. Find them all at the mainstore and on the marketplace now.

The entire set is to die for, and you can’t go wrong for sure. At just $50L per pull, you can get one of 10 commons, or 2 rares. All of them are fantastic! and with just 20 pulls you can earn a Seed of Inspiration Set that is exclusive to this event and will be retired following the event. Head on over to the Gacha Garden through Feb. 28th.

My hair in this look is a new release from enVOGUE entitled Jacquelyn. This short style is perfect for spring. I’m wearing one of the colors from the blondes pack, but there are many more packs to fit your needs. It’s at the enVOGUE mainstore now.

Finally my choker is from Lyrical B!zarre Templates for the Buy Now Feb. ’17 event.
