LOTD #175 – Warm Sands

LOTD 175

He’d been trying to get a picture of her all day.

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 #174 – Beautifully Carefree

LOTD 174

The scenery here is beautiful, he thought to himself.

She seemed so carefree and relaxed.

He’d have to break the news soon.

But not today.

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

Today I was too lazy to create a scene of my own, so I took a quick little trip to the Timeless Memories sim.

It’s always so nicely decorated, and I love taking pictures there.

I stopped by the On9 events a few weeks ago and found these gems.

The amazing dress is from Valentina E.

There were several different color options, but I love the combination of the raspberry and teal.

I paired it with these to-die-for shoes from Ricielli.

I love a sexy heel, and these were just the ticket. 🙂

I tend to go for items with a vintage/retro vibe, and this hair from Elikatira was screaming my name.

This round of the Cosmopolitan Room had a lot of cute items, but the hair HAD to come home with me.

If you get a chance, check out the Timeless Memories sim – you won’t be disappointed.

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 #171 – Dark Underworld

LOTD 171

He faltered as she paused, turning slowly.

“You doubt my powers?” she asked in a deceptively calm voice, as the ghostly lights flickered about her.

“No, mistress,” he whispered, trembling.

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

Genre is an event I found long ago that has become one of my favorites.

The items are all $100L or less, so my Lindens go farther than usual.

I needed that this round, because there are so many amazing items!

The theme is “Underworld,” and though I didn’t think I would find much, I was so wrong. 😀

This drop-dead gorgeous gown is from Les Encantadas.

The bracers and shoulder pieces are included and I love the way the silver and blue complement each other.

The floating flames are from Paper Moon – I saw them advertised on Plurk and had to have them!

They come in three different versions – white (pictured here), washed out, and turquoise.

They added the perfect ghostly/arcane touch for my photo.

I am in love with this breathtaking headpiece from Black Pearls.

As soon as I saw it, I knew exactly what kind of photo I wanted to do.

I’m a sucker for horns anyway, and this piece is so well-made and intricately detailed. 😀

The stunning hair is from Truth, of course – a recent release.

The cascade of curls down the front are gorgeous, and the raven color completes the look.

The skin is another new acquisition from WoW skins, courtesy of their group lucky boards.

I wanted something paler than I usually wear and Amanda fit the bill perfectly.

Genre just opened on the 15th, so you have plenty of time to head over there and pick up some of this deliciousness for yourselves!

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 #155 – Writer’s Block

LOTD 155It felt so good just to sit down and relax for a bit.

Just sit down and write. 

Try telling that to her writer’s block.

LOTD #96

LOTD 96I discovered r2 at Collabor88 ages ago.

A lot of the recent designs are ‘barely there’ and I just knew I could use this one. 😀

Throw out a few skulls and candles and pentagrams and voilá – instant temptress.

Which is, coincidentally, the name of this pose.
