LOTD #187 – Balancing Act

LOTD 187

She closed her eyes and tried to concentrate.

She hadn’t performed in so long, her muscles felt tight, the positions awkward.

It had been years since she’d come back here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For an ‘oops’ picture, I think this one turned out pretty well.

Since I installed Windows 10, I seem to be crashing a bit more than usual when taking photos.

I do run at Ultra with all the bells and whistles, and I had DoF turned on.

I forgot that I crashed with all that on, and when I logged in the next morning, it took me a few minutes to figure out why everything was blurry.

Doh!

Anyhoo, I did manage to snap this pic at the cool McFly Project.

I didn’t get a chance to look around because I was a crashy McCrashyPants, but I will be heading back for a second look.

The hair is another new release from Truth (did I mention I love them?).

I picked up this cute blouse from Tres Blah for this round of Mix.

I love the hearts and the little tie – so vintage and flirty and sweet.

The pants and shoes are old items from my inventory, but matched the color palette perfectly.

This stump was screaming out for a circus-y pose, and I knew I had just the one from !bang.

I know I was initially resistant to mesh heads, but I think it’s been almost two weeks since I took this one off.

I may have forgotten what I look like underneath! 😛

LOTD #182 – Acceptance

LOTD 182

It was so quiet and peaceful here.

The flowers, the garden, the babbling brook – a gorgeous place to soothe her soul.

She breathed in deeply and felt the knot in her shoulders loosen.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s a time of change in my household at the moment.

School starts in a few weeks, so there’s a lot of preparation to be done.

I’ve been sporadically working on a few new ventures of my own.

I’m trying to learn to take things as they come rather than trying to plan ahead for everything.

I am a creature of habit and I love routine.

So change is hard.

And also good. 😀

For this LOTD, I’ve changed up my look quite a bit.

This mesh head from Genesis, while not my usual style, is amazing.

A free group gift, it comes with the head, eyes, eyelashes, ears, skin, shape, and an applier for my Mait bod.

It took me a while to get used to the new shape, but the look has grown on me.

A very generous gift indeed.

This long hair style from Kokolores fit beautifully with my new look (it was a gift at Hair Fair this year).

I’ve been waiting for the right outfit to show off this gorgeous necklace from EMO-tions and when I put on this lace slip dress from ISON I knew this was it.

The necklace was a find from the last round of My Attic and the ISON dress is currently available for this round of Mix.

The dress comes with a color change HUD and 3 color options.

I love this soft peach.

The dress also comes with a Maitreya version with the auto-alpha, so you just wear it and voilá – the alphas are set perfectly. 🙂

I went looking through my shoe collection to see what I could find and came up with these fantastic Amelia pumps from Pure Poison.

The detailing is meticulous and I love the suede look of the shoes.

The final touch was the cuffs from Decoy.

I used the Destination Guide to find this beautiful garden at the Moonlight Teahouse.

So pretty!

LOTD #181 – Shopping Blues

She stopped suddenly, as if remembering something, her hand flying to her lips.

“What is it?” he asked.

It took her a moment to answer.

I think I’ve reached a point where I am ‘evented’ out.

Every time I turn around, there’s another event.

How on earth dedicated fashion bloggers keep up with all of them, I have no idea.

They skip sleeping, maybe?

I used to wonder how designers/creators kept up too.

Since I’ve started going to more events, however, I’ve noticed a lot of repeats – the same item at different events.

I’ve gotten into a vicious cycle of shopping, blogging, shopping, blogging – I’ve forgotten to have fun while I’m doing it.

So I made the conscious choice to slow down.

I bought enough items over the past couple of weeks to keep me busy with photos for the next couple of months.

I’ve also made the conscious decision to curb my impulse spending.

I limit the events I go to, I set a budget for the event, and I only buy items I really love.

I’ve come to rely heavily on Seraphim and their ‘galleries’ of items at events.

I don’t have to fight lag to look at the items, and sometimes, there just isn’t anything I have to have at the event.

So I don’t even go, thus saving time, L$, and my sanity. 😀

For instance, I went to FaMESHed and bought only two items – one of which is this gorgeous dress from Coquet.

I love the color, the off-shoulder cut, the lace at the hem – so many lovely details.

When I saw these amazing shoes from Chic Chica at the Cosmopolitan Room, I knew they would be perfect for this dress.

You can see all the jaw-dropping detail in the inset photo.

I love how they are sexy and delicate and feminine – a trifecta for heels. 😛

I wanted to add a little ‘something’ to my look, and the eyeshadow from PMD at the Makeup Room was the perfect touch.

There are 6 different colors, in both system tattoos and appliers for your Lelutka head.

I don’t usually shop at Argrace, but I’ve found myself wearing their hair for the last several days.

First I fell in love with their ‘wet hair’ look, and when I saw this adorable pixie cut on another blog, I ran right over there and picked it up.

I love the waviness and the cute little hair clip in the front.

Now, excuse me while I go dig around in the pile of chaos I call my inventory and see what other gems I’ve picked up to show off!

LOTD #179 – Books!

LOTD 179

She danced gleefully among the pages.

“How can you not like books?” she wondered.

All those worlds, right at your fingertips.

For the last several months, I have been participating in a theme challenge at Scribbler’s Cove.

I make some weeks, I miss some.

I like challenges like this because they generally force me to learn or try something new.

Next week’s theme is ‘Books.’

I’m a read-a-holic in RL, and I have a huge collection of books.

(Not as huge as I’d like, but short of owning the Library of Congress, nothing would do.)

Apparently I also collect books in SL.

I looked through my inventory for ‘books,’ with an idea for a shoot in my head.

Umm, there’s a LOT of them in there.

More for decor than actual reading, of course, but still – a LOT of books. 😀

Floating books, big books, little books, open books, closed books, torn books, old books, new books – you name it, I’ve probably got it.

That makes me happy. 😛

After rezzing my plethora of books, I put together this look.

My usually organized inventory has become a hot mess lately, so I’m trying to go through and pull things I’ve bought but never worn.

Mixed in with some new purchases, of course.

This adorable braided hair from Truth isn’t new, but is one of my favorite looks.

The earrings and cuffs I’ve had for quite a while, but they are definitely keepers.

The necklace is a recent purchase from Maxi Gossamer for July’s round at Mix.

There was so much stuff in that box, I’m still unpacking it!

The shoes from G&D (one of my favorite shoemakers) are from the last round of 21Shoe.  *sniffs*

I can’t believe that 21Shoe closed.

One of my favorite events, darn it.

The dress from Sage is fitted mesh.

I stopped by Designer Showcase to look at another item, and ended up buying this cute little number instead.

Yay for impulse shopping!

Treat yourself – buy a book and read it, and enjoy your Monday. 😀

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of July already.

This summer has flown by!

School is right around the corner and I’m busy with enrollment and school supplies.

So it’s nice to be able to find a few quiet moments here and there in SL.

Frisland has become one of my favorite places for pictures – it’s always so lovely.

I saw this adorable dress from Zenith at FaMESHed and had to have it.

I dug through my inventory and found a few accessories from Maxi Gossamer to pair with it.

The bangles are color change, so it was easy to mix and match.

This key necklace is one of my favorite pieces from the MG Look Book for Mix this month.

Also included in the MG Look Book were these darling sandals.

I wish it was this nice where I live.

We’re going on week 3 in triple digits. 😛

Hope your Wednesday is sunny and warm!

LOTD #175 – Warm Sands

He snapped the pic as she turned to ask him a question.

She glared as he grinned.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The last few days have been blazing hot where I live.

100F and above – even in the shade!

While I love warm places, I don’t love feeling like an ant under a magnifying glass every time I step outside. -.-

I want warm, not fiery.

Warm sand, warm water, and cool breezes. 😀

So, I found a nice warm beach in SL – the beautiful Bamboo Beach.

One of my recent shopping trips included a stop at The Chapter 4 event.

(It ended on July 24, so if you like what you see, check the mainstores or MP!)

I found this cute little bikini from The Annex and paired it with this darling skirt from Coco.

I love the little sheer strip detail on the skirt.

While I was there, I couldn’t resist these adorable sandals from UC.

I love the color and detailed ankle strapping.

The hair is a free gift from Elikatira at the Hair Fair this year.

I love the color change bow – it adds a touch of fun to the hairstyle.

I recently joined the WoW Skins group and have been wandering around in their Sara skin.

The bangles are from Maxi Gossamer – yet another piece from her Look Book for Mix this month.

I love the cut-out detail of the bracelets – delicate, but substantial.

The anchor necklace from Meva is a find from this round of My Attic @ The Deck.

It was the perfect whimsical touch. 😀

LOTD #173 – Lilacs and Talcum

LOTD 173

She looked around, the sense of nostalgia almost overwhelming.

She’d spent many a happy hour here as a child.

Running her fingers lightly across the sideboard, she picked up the blanket.

It still smelled of lilacs and talcum, like her grandmother.

I’ve decided I need to go yard-sale shopping more often. 😀

I saw a notice on Plurk that someone was having a yard sale, and I couldn’t resist going to pick up a few things.

Reasonably priced, and I justified the ‘no-copy’ items because, though I can’t use them in a performance, I can most certainly use them in a photo!

So many cute vintage things, and this isn’t even all of them!

I like to visit sims for photoshoots, but sometimes I can’t find anything that suits the feel/vibe I want.

In those situations, I build my own scene.

As I was browsing the yard sale, I could see the scene coming together in my head.

And I’m happy to say that it turned out pretty close to what I wanted. 😛

The little writing shed from Funky Junk is a $50L Friday find from a previous week- and a steal!

It’s such a cute little shed, I know I’ll get tons of use out of it.

I had a lot of fun decorating up the inside with various pieces and parts.

When I saw this dress at Shiny Shabby, I just had to have it.

I saw it on early access day, but it wasn’t available for purchase yet.

So I went back and braved the lag – I love the lacy vintage look of it.

The Exile hair is their offering at this round of Collabor88.

I love the length and the sideswept bangs – so pretty!

The ring is another gem from Maxi Gossamer’s Look Book for Mix this month.

There’s so much stuff in there, I’m still opening boxes. 😀

And I’m still in love with Essenz shoes.

I’ve had these for a while, but they are gorgeous.

I still have some boxes to open, because I went to the 50% off anniversary sale.

It runs through July 26th, so if you haven’t stopped by Essenz yet, you should.

Shoe heaven awaits!

LOTD #170 – Old History

LOTD 170

She stepped purposefully down the uneven stairs, her stilettos tapping against the aging stone.

He’d called her out of the blue.

She hadn’t seen him in years, long before she ended up in Rome.

What was he doing here?

I am busy working on photos and trying to sort out my insanely large ‘Open These’ folder!

That’s where I stick everything I buy from events (with sub-folders, of course), so I know (mostly) what I got from where.

But there have been so many events lately that I can’t seem to keep up. 😛

I saw a notice about a ‘new-to-me’ event called Fashiontropic, and since I don’t have nearly enough tropical stuff, I stopped by.

I’m glad I did, because I picked up this charming little dress from Guilia Design – I love the retro fabric.

While I was there, I found a lovely jewelry set by Meva – you can see the earrings and bracelets in the photo, and there is a necklace in the set as well.

So pretty!

The hair is a free gift from Elikatira at Hair Fair this year.

They’re a ‘new-to-me’ hair brand, but I love the look, and there are 3 (3!) free hairs in their gift.

I’m not usually one for accessories, but I got this bag from Zenith at The Season’s Story and it just matched so perfectly.

Speaking of accessories, I have become obsessed with rings!

I love these rings from Punci (which I think I picked up at anyBody, but I’m not sure) – I added the inset photo so you can see all the yummy details.

The lovely skin I’m sporting in these photos is from WoW Skins.

I recently joined their VIP group (while the fee was discounted!) and picked up the group gift for July – this lovely Stella skin.

I’ve been wearing my old skin for so long, it was a refreshing change!

My shoes are from Friday for Mix this month.

You get three pairs in one, so it’s a complete steal.

I love the shoes at Friday – so hot and sexy!

LOTD #167 – Hot Mess

I am so behind with my LOTD posts!

I have a giant pile of boxes waiting to be opened, with oodles of gorgeousness inside.

There have been a TON of events lately in SL and I’ve been busily shopping.

I finally made it to Hair Fair and bought this amazing hair from Lelutka – I love the tousled curl look of it.

Most of the vendors at Hair Fair have placed out free gifts for the 10th anniversary.

So even if you don’t want to buy any hair (just kidding, who doesn’t need more hair?!), you can stop buy and pick up some free swag.

Don’t forget to make a donation to Wigs for Kids!

The sunglasses I’m sporting are Lelutka’s free gift at Hair Fair and they match this hair perfectly.

The blazer outfit is something I picked up at last week’s Fi*Friday (I think) and I purposely chose I color I don’t normally wear.

I love the salmon color and casual look of the outfit.

When I saw the ad for fri.day’s FLF offering this week, I jumped on it – these adorable sandals for only $50L!

You get these beauties AND two other pairs of sandals – that’s a steal. 😀

The gorgeous necklace and ring are from Maxi Gossamer for Mix.

Mix is a new monthly event.

You get a HUD for that month that lets you tp to the participating stores – some have sales, some have new releases, and some have exclusives.

Maxi Gossamer had a whole ‘Look Book’ for Mix and I immediately scooped it up.

I love the delicate chain on the necklace and, of course, both items are color change.

The ring was a bit hard to see in the photo, so I added the inset at the bottom to show off the gorgeous details.

The stumps and picnic basket are decor items from Park Place – one of my favorite stores.

She does amazing work and the prices are very reasonable.

I  have tons more to show you (Genre this round is AMAZING!), but right now I have to head off to a dance show.

Enjoy your Friday, everyone!

I was out shopping (big surprise, I know!) and I ran across a ‘new-to-me’ store called Siss Boom.

I saw this gorgeous dress and I just had to have it.

It’s so soft and pretty, you feel like a princess wearing it. 😀

It was just screaming for an elegant updo, so I chose this Leesa hair from Truth.

Finishing touches were some pretty earrings from Maxi Gossamer and dramatic eyeshadow from Slack Girl.

I am still trying to get a feel for makeups and such with the Lelutka head, but I’m learning. 🙂

If you have suggestions for stores/creators that make some nice makeups, give me a shout.

I love this bridge from Dreamland Designs – I don’t remember how I found it, but I love it.

It’s got a ton of cute couples poses built in and it’s only 8 LI!

I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it, both as a prop for LOTD posts and a dance prop.

This photo has more of a ‘fall’ feel to it, but I was getting a little tired of all the sand and surf photos – I needed a break. 😛

When I bought the Lelutka head, I thought I’d only be wearing it for photo shoots.

I haven’t taken it off yet.

I’m off to do some more shopping – Happy Hump Day everyone!!
