Harlow

Just the other day my friend Kirsty dropped me an IM and said “Harlow! You have to come see these sunglasses at mon tissu!”  So I teleport over to come and look and the glasses are named HARLOW Sunglasses!  Now…I totally know it’s just coincidence and that the sunglasses were not under any circumstance named after me, but I did get a little giggly over it regardless!  The glasses are great! They are stylish, mesh, and rather edgy.  I felt they went perfectly with the newer hair/hat release from Maitreya.

For Stumblebum this round RezIspa Loc has released some beautiful summer bikinis.  This round of Stumblebum the colors focus around the word “Calm”, and so many of the colors she’s featuring with these bikinis make me want to lay on a calm beautiful beach and soak up the sun!

I had a lot of fun doing this photo.  I have been working hard to try and learn new things lately, as I have a lot of free time.  One thing i’ve started doing is very simple.  Instead of just playing with sky windlights, i’ve also started playing with water settings as well.  It’s amazing the results you can get!  So much fun!

Butter & Blue Jeans

I just love the name that Leri Miles Designs picked for this shirt.  It’s called “Butter”.  I thought it was quite fitting for the shirt as it has a lot of country flair to it, and country always makes me think of delicious food covered in butter! Paula Deen would be proud.  The shirt is mesh, fits nicely, and the texture work is very well done!  The shirt also comes in a variety of colors but “butter” certainly grabbed my attention the most!

I’m keeping it short and sweet today, but a few things to take note on.  Lynaja Bade of KOSH has been hard at work with a bunch of new releases.  This beautiful bracelet, as well as a handful of other great accessories are up for grabs.  Make sure to stop b y KOSH and check out all the beautifully detailed items she has to offer.

Have a good one y’all.

Someone Call Security!

So… life’s been a little bit stressful lately.  I’ve been struggling with some big upcoming changes and uncertainties and I just needed a night out. You know. One of THOSE nights.  I called up my two favorite guys on the grid, Mr. Arkansas Sorbet & Mr. Remy Stringfellow and essentially begged for them to take me out.  There was some hesitancy due to prior nights out in the past (apparently I have QUITE the drinking record!), but after a little bit of grumbling they agreed.

The night started off GREAT, as they always tend to do.  We bar hopped on the grid, joining up with friends for drinks and well…maybe a few shots too.  There was dancing, and laughter, and loads of fun, and just when the party was really getting started, the boys became distracted by the pretty blonde bartender.  I for one, was NOT going to be shown up on MY night of fun.  The redhead in me soon started to show!  A few more shots and I was chatting it up with a few of the local handsome patrons.  Liquid courage, and the encouragement of a group of cute boys soon enough had me up on the bar in my crocodile pumps dancing like I owned the place.

My plan worked!  It just may not have worked entirely how I wanted it to.  Over the loud thumping speakers I heard a shrill voice yell “Someone Call Security!”

That sure got the attention of Mr. Sorbet and Mr. Stringfellow cause soon enough they were racing over and yanking me down off the bar.  Apparently, my stubborn ginger side really seems to show when the vodka settles in, as they had to drag me out kicking and squealing.

Needless to say, it’s going to take a lot of convincing for my boys to take me out anytime again soon. Oopsie!

Balance

I’ve been on a quest for balance recently in my life, especially my “real” one. Trying to really find my footing as big changes are just around the corner, and quite honestly it’s been a huge challenge.  I have up and down days, and I’m filled with quite a bit of worry as I anticipate what the future holds.  It’s just a particular season that nearly everyone goes through in their lives, and it’s my time to wander through it.

I thought these chair poses from Adorkable were quite perfect for depicting this balancing act I’m wobbling through right now.  The poses are fantastic, and when you change them, the chairs change with you.  One of the more unique posing props I’ve seen on the grid in a long time.  You can get the chairs in three different colors, and they come with a handful of poses to choose from that show off every angle.

It has been a while since i’ve shown you one of Betty Doyle’s beautiful items from Ingenue.  She has released a quality pack of wedges for Collabor88 this month.  I thought they went great with my Fanatik jumpsuit!

Today, I wanted to mention that FLF (Fifty Linden Friday) has started back up.  SeraphimSL has done an absolutely phenomenal job of showing off everything that’s up for sale today.  My hair is from Wasabi Pills, and is featured in this first new round of FLF.  Isn’t it edgy? Another wonderful short style by them!

Synthetique has just released a gorgeous new nail set.  These nails are some of my favorite on the grid, as they are high quality, shaped beautifully, and the sizing fits perfectly on my hands.  You can stop by Synthetique on marketplace to pick up all of her nail sets.  They are well worth it!

For everything else I’m wearing today please check out my credits :)

The Friendly Photobomb

Hellooooo SLers! I am so sorry! I have been, once again, a badly behaving blogger lately!  I have just been so busy getting  The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse all set up and haven’t had a chance to blog much.  I promise I will be better next week when things start to calm down.  It has honestly been a bit nice having a little break from my daily routine.  If you haven’t had a chance to stop by the cafe, you should.  Miss Tya Fallingbridge did an absolutely phenomenal job on the build.  I will be doing a post soon about the place.

During the renovations some friends and I had some fun up in the empty globe in the sky.  With no furniture to sit on, I guess they found it appropriate to come and photobomb me while I was doing a photo for the blog!  Thank you Rune, Paige, and Kirsty for the laughs!

The somewhat new store One Bad Pixel just released these gorgeous and sexy mesh maxi dresses.  I think the creative neckline on these really stands out.  I love the prints, but I think I would love it even more if they eventually were released in simple solid colors as well.  I knew the moment I threw this dress on I’d want to keep it in my inventory for a long time to come.  They managed to make a dress that is not only sexy and daring, but also a dress that is oozing with class as well.

Truth released four new hairstyles this week! Three mesh hairs, and a shorter non mesh hair.  The hair above is one of the beautiful mesh releases, and my favorite of the four!  Make sure to stop by and see all the awesome hard work that Mr. Hawks has put into his newest releases.

Hopefully I will be back in the swing of things with my blog soon, and be featuring more frequent posts! Sorry for the semi-hiatus!  Enjoy the rest of your week! <3
