Hey look! More Collabor88 goodies! This time I just have to talk about Tee*fy’s stuff this round because it’s adorable! The Sophie cut-out tops and Su skirts all go so perfectly together, you don’t even have to worry about which will match what. Plus I had to pick my jaw up off the floor when I saw that the skirts were only 88L$ each. I paired them with ANE’s super pretty strappy heels (which I’ll probably be wearing more often because I adore them) and a little pendant from Yummy.

On the left I’m wearing Nylon outfitter’s tutu skirt in nude with one of Tee*fy’s crop tops which were left out from a past round of Fifty Linden Fridays. NO’s skirt also comes with a pretty satin top with Lolas appliers included but I decided not to wear them. The little Elephant hanging out on Flowey’s balloon swing (which is also at this round) is animated and when you wear him, he’ll follow you around! There’s also a holdable version in case you want to give your little ele-friend a cuddle.

Glam Affair has released Aria again who we haven’t seen since The Arcade closed but now she’s back and in Artic and Jamaica tones! There aren’t any extra options with these skins this time around but if you have any other add-on packs for other skins in these tones  then they will also work perfectly! I really love her pretty pink cheeks and light makeups, and don’t even get me started on those cute little freckles!

Ferosh Spring/Summer 2014

Ferosh Spring/Summer 2014 - Tesselate

Credits (page. 224)

So about a month ago I was given the opportunity to take part in a new, fantastic project called ‘Ferosh’. It’s less of a magazine and more of a lookbook that spans across a huge variety of fashion trends for this Spring/Summer season like florals, ruffles, lace, crops the list really does go on and on! I was tasked with Geometrics, which was a fun challenge since I’ve been quite into sci-fi and sharp corners and dramatic tailoring lately. So I tried to come up with a few looks that were quite wearable as well as something a little bit wild.

Ferosh isn’t really a magazine in the sense that there are no real articles, no extensive advertisements, the focus is purely on fashion which I absolutely adored (since we all know I’m not the best writer in the world!). It’s a massive book with over 400 pages to it but there will only be 2 issues a year, one for Spring/summer and another for Autumn/winter which I will also be participating in!

Above are 2 of my 5 editorial images and the credits are also in the issue so if you want to know what I’m wearing, you’ll have to find them for yourself. Be sure to have a flick through the inaugural issue of Ferosh and check out the amazing talent on display. I definitely not ashamed to admit that I teared up looking at everyone’s hard work!

And don’t forget to like Ferosh on Facebook or check out their site for news and updates!

A new round of Kustom 9 opens up on the 15th and there’s so much cute and pastel-y stuff to be had! Like these adorable ruffly platforms from The Sugar Garden, which are available in a bunch of different colours and even include the little bat-wing and colour-change HUD. Cocoroni’s gacha this round has these super fun dinosaur hats which you can win, they’re just too funny I couldn’t resist wearing one! Also Le primitif has made some sweet ‘bashful bear’ phones which look surprisingly realistic and are available to win in a lot of different colours and designs.

So why are you still here? Go shop!

When I found out that The Seasons Story opened up on the 10th instead of the 12th, you wouldn’t believe how fast I ran to the location. So sorry about that! But it’s well and truly underway now and guys and girls alike will love it! Ever since last round’s lag-haven, they’ve taken everyone’s advice into account and now I found the sim was almost completely lag-free (which is very rare for me) so if that’s why you’re putting it off, don’t!

So of course since this is the spring round, I was in floral paradise and grabbed anything and everything that was pink or girly enough for my tastes. My personal favourites is this adorable hair by INK which is available in all the usual colours as well as a few limited to the event colours too, and for only 160L$ per colour, it’s such a big steal! You can’t really tell on this photo but there are little braids that start at the front and wrap around to the back of the head which really makes this hairstyle super unique! I also loved Aisling’s beautifully detailed flower crown and mix n’ match dresses, both with colour change/pattern change options on pretty much every aspect of them.

The Seasons Story runs until the end of the month and features a lot of amazing designers where you can get everything from clothes to furniture to skins to hair!

Watercolour + Spring Season Challenge

Watercolour

Necklace: LaGyo – Maylea necklace (C88)
Jeans: Alyce – Tight jeans
Shoes: Fri.day – Venus heels (Cutie Moon)
Clutch: LaGyo – Maylea clutch (C88)
Chair: Trompe Loeil – Birdcage worn copper (Fameshed)

Hey girls! Spring has finally sprung and it certainly feels like it now. The past few days we’ve had glorious weather so I’ve been soaking up the sunshine. But it also seems like Spring is here on the grid too because a new round of Collabor88 started up yesterday and this round’s theme is ‘Watercolours in bloom’ so if you love your pastels and florals as much as I do, then this round will steal your heart (and your cash too…).

From this round, we have this beautiful hair from Tableau Vivant called Springer. The headband is materials enabled and comes with a great colour change HUD, but if you don’t fancy the headband much then there is a version you can purchase without too! Also my floral eyelashes (that’s how far my floral-addiction has come now) are from Glam Affair at this round and come in a few bright and summery colours to make any outfit look a little more striking! My pretty peach necklace and matching clutch are part of the Maylea collection this round from LaGyo, there is also a matching headpiece to go with these accessories but I decided not to wear it today. Xiaj are guesting this round too and have made some cool sweaters and cardigans for both guys and girls! You can even change the colour of the collar using the HUD full of pretty pastel colours.

Skin: Glam Affair – Brandi (Coming soon @The seasons story)
Hair: Tableau Vivant – Springer (C88)
Sweater: Xiaj – Casual sweater (C88)
Lashes: Glam affair – Spring queen lashes (C88)

I also have a sneaky peek at what’s coming up from The Seasons’ Story on the 12th! Glam affair have made some very spring-y variations of Brandi, which made her debut at the Cutie Moon Fair. She will be available in Europa and Frost tones, 5 makeups, 14 lipstick tattoos, 13 brow colours and 2 nose tattoos! My personal favourite has to be makeup 5 because of the gorgeous dewy, rosy red cheeks, but I’m also tempted by 4 with those adorable freckles!


Since I haven’t done one in a while, why not end this post with another of Strawberry Singh‘s memes? Today I decided I was going to do the Spring Season Challenge meme!

Meme Instructions: Share a spring-themed picture and/or answer the following questions about the season. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments and share your picture in the Blog Memes Flickr Group.

  1. What is the spring season like where you live? – Usually it’s cold and rainy and things don’t start heating up until April/June. But we’ve been lucky this year and have had a lot of lovely hot weather, balanced out by the occasional shower. Which is nice because we Brits aren’t used to relentless heat (remember all that kerfuffle in summer last year?).
  2. What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of spring? – Definitely blossoms. I love it when all the trees you thought were dead and gone over winter suddenly start bursting with gorgeous pink flowers and the petals are all over the road and the cars and blowing in the wind. We have a lovely magnolia tree in our garden that sprouts really big flowers when spring rolls around, but they died off early because we had a little bit of frost last month, so they were only around for a couple days.
  3. Which spring-themed sim in Second Life is your favorite at the moment? – Right now, my favourite sim is Paradiso because it’s very reminiscent of my all-time favourite sim (which sadly closed down) World’s End Garden with all the roses and flowers and water! And the best part is they’ve just opened up after a spring renewal so there are lots of new things to explore!

Here’s a closer look at some more of the stuff you can get from the Fit For a Princess event! I briefly went over some items a few days ago but there’s just so much awesome stuff that I just had to centre a whole post around it!

This gorgeous gown is just perfect for any princessy outfit! The Principessa gown is by Junbug and it comes in a bunch of colours like pink and lavender and black too. I paired it with the purity jewellery from Krystal which has colour change options in the gemstones of the necklace, earrings and tiara so I was able to match them with the mint in the dress. The build is also at the event believe it or not, from Alouette, and it’s just perfect for fantasy sims or even a fun kids’ bedroom!

Another event you guys should check out is We <3 RP which opened it’s doors yesterday! I’m so excited this round because I talk about +[Nouveaux]+ sometimes on this blog and the great designers that share a home with us. Well Pixicat is taking part! Pixicat is one of the new designers that have a store at Nouv and we’re so proud of her because she’s being invited to take part in all these super events! She’s really outdone herself too by making some beautifully decorated spell books in various designs  as well as these awesome flying pages which I just love! Pixicat is one to watch so keep an ear out in the next few days for all the cool events she’s taking part in!

The Colours of Summer

The colours of summer

Skin: Glam affair – Brandi (Cutie moon)
Hair: Tableau Vivant – Valentin (Fameshed)
Headpiece: Glam Affair – Dahlia headpiece (Fameshed)
Shirt + Shorts: Coco – Shirt&Shorts Hands in pockets (Fameshed)
Jacket: Coco – Jacket over shoulders (Fameshed)
Clutch: Le Primitif – Cat clutch
Necklace: Paper Couture – Diamond bee necklace
Shoes: Pure Poison – Miss Ficceh sandals

Among the many events that started up yesterday like the Cutie Moon Fair and Fit For a Princess was Fameshed, and I have some awesome things to show you from there! A few days ago in my ‘Ari’ post, I talked about how Coco’s jacket had arms built into the mesh and they’ve done it again too! This very summery shirt and shorts combo has the arms built in, just like the bomber jacket, but this time it also includes extra mesh hands for every skin tone so you don’t need to worry about making your slink hands fit! The Jacket is also from Coco at Fameshed and includes versions you can wear with or without the shorts combo! I think it’s such a creative idea and a fantastic use of mesh so I think I’ll be popping back when it quiets down to grab a few more colours!

Also at Fameshed is this cute cropped hair from Tableau vivant named Valentin! It’s another unisex hair so you fellas can enjoy this one too and it even includes various sizes to ensure a perfect fit no matter your head shape! I think it goes perfectly with Glam Affair’s very summery Dahlia headpiece, which is just what you need to tie in all the bright colours in the Coco jacket to the rest of your outfit!

I was also mentioned in an article on New World Notes about the Cutie Moon fair! If you’d like to read that, you can check it out here.

Yesterday I gave you Sailor fans a little peek at what’s in store for the Cutie Moon fair but there’s another event that kicks off on April 1st too, and it’s the Fit For a Princess event! The two events seem to go hand in hand so I decided to create a look using items from both events! First up though is Tableau Vivant’s gorgeous new hair which will be coming to Cutie Moon! The headpieces are optional attachments and are available in multiple colours to match most, if not all of the scout colours! And the hair loops in the headpieces are HUD controlled so you can colour them how you wish as well!

Eternal

Skin: Glam Affair – Brandi (Cutie Moon)
Hair: Tableau vivant – Moon (Cutie Moon)
Head chain: Keystone – Vaika’s jewels (FFAP)
Nails: A.S.S – Rhinestone (FFAP)
Jewelry: Cae – Duchess (FFAP)
Pose: Glitterburps – The way you make me feel

On to Fit For a Princess then! Cae has made some very elegant, royalty inspired jewellery which includes earrings, rings, a necklace and even a tiara. I know I say this a lot about Cae but their massive colour change HUDS (and I mean massive) really do make all her pieces well worth the L$! Also coming to FFAP (hehe!) is this beautifully simplistic head chain by Keystone and it comes in gold, silver and onyx versions to match any of your princessy gowns! And last but by all means not least are these super cute nail appliers by A.S.S! In your chosen pack you get appliers for both slink hands and feet in 8 pretty colours! I picked up the rhinestone pack because I just love nail art with little diamantes but there are also tiara nails and a gorgeous set in a very regal purple colour!

Cutie Scouts!

Skin: Glam affair – Brandi (Cutie moon)
Hair: Taketomi – Quele (Group Gift)
Bow: Cooties – Bows (Cutie moon)
Uniform: Violent Seduction – Eternal uniforms (Cutie moon)

Calling all Sailor Scouts, your planet needs you! The Cutie Moon fair opens up on April 1st and here you can deck yourselves out in all your Senshi necessities from communicators and disguise pens to uniforms and power wands! It’s all there and more. I decided to suit up in my Sailor Venus outfit with Rose and Gwin joining me as Sailor Moon and Chibi Moon. We’re all wearing these great uniforms from Violent Seduction, all of the Sailors and outer-senshi are included in the colours so you can be any of your favourite characters! It utilises fitted mesh too so there’s no need for multiple sizes but you will need an updated viewer in order to see it correctly! I’m going to be going over my outfit today (far left) but if you’d like to know what Rose (middle) and Gwin (right) are wearing, then check out their blogs!

Wand: TSG – Spiral heart rod (Cutie Moon)
Compact: TSG – Henshi compact (Cutie Moon)
Shoes: Fri.day – Diana (C88)

The Sugar Garden has really gone all out for this event, making a bunch of cute accessories, essential to any Sailor Scout! There’s Compacts, Plushies, Jewelry and my personal favourite, Magic wands! If you give the wand HUD a little tippy-tap, it’ll play sounds, animation and a bunch of magical particle effects do you can blast your enemies with your planetary powers! Each wand plays a different colour and particle effect depending on the scout so they’re a lot of fun to play with!

Hair: Tableau Vivant - Sabahi
Eyes: IKON – Promise

Glam Affair is also taking part in the event and has made another really adorable skin! Brandi comes in Artic, Asia, America and Jamaica tones and has 6 makeups and 13 (yes! 13!) brow colours, a no brow option, 14 lipstick tattoos and 2 nose tattoo add-ons! There aren’t quite as many combinations in this skin as previous releases but the gorgeous eye makeups are to die for! I don’t have any other way to describe these skins other than…magical!

The Cutie Moon Fair is brought to you by the awesome people who make Collabor88 and The Arcade possible so this event is guaranteed to be excellent quality and a whole bunch of fun!

Wallet: Xiaj – Roy Wallet
Shorts: Gizza – Jean short
Knee tattoo: Mes Petites Coutures – Bloody knees
Boots: Deco – Paraboots

I decided I’d been too prissy princessy lately and wanted to grunge it up a bit for today’s post, and it goes quite well because Soleil Reed of Dead Apples has made her first skin for the Skin fair and it’s so pretty! Ari is available in a bunch of tones to suit all, different coloured eyebrows, various kinds of freckle tattoos and a few lipstick tattoos too! I also decided to wear it with Soiree’s Moondust eyeshadow which is also a Skin fair exclusive! This is the final week for the Skin Fair so grab what you can before you have to wait a few months for them to arrive in the mainstores!

Skin: Dead Apples – Ari (Skin fair)
Eyeshadow: Soiree – Moondust eyeshadow (Skin fair)

Jacket: Coco – Bomber Jacket
Butterflies: Aria – Daphne wall flutter

I want to briefly touch on this awesome jacket that I picked up at Coco designs yesterday because it’s quite a creative use of mesh! The arms in the pockets are built into the actual jacket and not part of my pose at all so technically, my avatar arms are hidden by the alpha! Isn’t that cool? The jacket comes in a bunch of cool urban colours to choose from and it looks great paired with just plain old jeans and rugged boots!
