So, I apologize for the sporadic posts lately. I am getting married in RL in a few months and my RL has been incredibly hectic and busy. I’ve had to put my blogging on the back burner a little bit, and while I hate it, it’s also been a nice & needed break. I am a big believer in quality over quantity when it comes to blogging and I never want to feel rushed to create an image or a post that is only mediocre. I believe designers deserve the very best promotional material, and I want to represent great work in my own work.
FaMESHed began 6 days ago (shame on me for not getting a post up until now), and this round has some of the most elegant and graceful designs I’ve seen yet. Baiastice, once again wows, with a gorgeous mesh gown, that I have paired with a fantastic hairstyle from Wasabi Pills, and jewelry from Maxi Gossamer. All three of these great brands never fail me with their endless talents.
I hope you’ve all had a great week so far. I’m hoping to get a few more posts out in the next few days, showing off lots of other great goodies from FaMESHed, as well as some other great events and releases coming up.

I am pretty excited to tell you all about a great new event that opened it’s doors today. Uber is a monthly themed event, featuring a wide array of top notch designers across the Second Life grid. I had an opportunity to get a sneak peek last night before they opened their doors, and I was not only impressed with the quality of design, but the sim itself. Quite a bit of what I’m wearing for this post can be found at Uber. My hair, skin, bikini, and flops are all part of the event.
I purchased a skin last night at Uber that I have fallen completely in love with. I have never worn Lara Hurley skins in the past. I always thought the quality of her skins were beautiful, but none of them suited my avatar….until now. Her newest “Fae” skin has blown me away. I even shared a photo on plurk and it was nearly unanimous positive responses. Usually when I try a skin on I get mixed reviews from my plurk friends, but nearly everyone loved this. This will be a new “staple skin” for me. (AKA: One that I will never want to take off!)
I do want to take a moment and plug these flip flops because the designer, Lindsey Warwick, is not only an absolute sweetheart, but an immensely talented creator as well. I am so picky about texture work in SL, and her new shoes she has been releasing are stunning. L. Warwick has a great variety of shoes, and her newest flip flops at Uber come in a wide variety of colors, and are SLink compatible.
I hope you all take a few minutes of your time today and stop by Uber to see what all it has to offer. I know a few stores are running a bit behind in setting up, so keep checking back!

ColdLogic has released a great new collection of sultry dresses for the season. My favorite of the bunch was this “Wilde” dress. I love the little ties, the way it fits my body, and the embellishment along the neckline/chest. I paired it with some great jewelry from ISON, that can be found at the final days of this round of Collabor88.
Haven’t been talking much on here lately. I’ve been incredibly busy in my real life with wedding planning, my full time job, and all sorts of other life stuff. Hope you are all doing well.

Belleza has released a new skin called Claudia, and I feel absolutely fierce in it. The skin comes in seven various skin tones, and has five brows, and a no brows option as well. Ten different makeup options, and lip tattoos in matte & gloss versions. Moles, freckles, and cleavage layers are also an option. My favorite thing about this skin is the light and dark versions of the red brows. I’m a sucker for a skin that caters to all of the redheads on the grid, and this skin really suits us. I without a doubt think this is Shyla Diggs best work yet.
Speaking of best work yet, this new jewelry set from creator Caelan Hancroft, of Cae, is probably one of my favorite sets she’s created. It’s sexy, and unique. You won’t find anything else on the grid like this. It can be picked up at The Liaison Collaborative’s boutique this month.
I feel amazing in all of these new items, and you can too. Check them out!
