Falling

Soon autumn will be in full swing, and thus begins my favorite time of the year. Collabor88 started today and this month’s theme sweeps us gently into fall. Harry Hyx’s fuzzy angora sweater takes the chill off those recent cool evenings and Maxi Gossamer’s Fall Leaf jewelry gives us a preview of the piles of leaves that will soon be covering the ground. Also at Collabor88 is the lovely Leila skin from Belleza.

Rez Day #3

Today is my third rez day. I have to admit that when I first started in SL I didn’t think I would be here long-term. These past three years have been full of love, learning, fun, friends and the inevitable drama and heartache. I have learned that my av shouldn’t have legs as long as Chile, and that sunken cheeks are not a good look! Now three years is a blink compared to how long some people have been here—I can only hope to last so long!

So on to today’s post. We have had a relatively cool spring. I am not complaining about that, especially since the only good thing about summer, in my opinion, is that kids aren’t in school. Everything else I can do without. Heat, bugs, humidity, you name it. I like wearing clothes. I like being able to take my dog out without having her suffer heat stroke. I like to get in my car and drive it without suffering second-degree burns from touching the seat belt. I should be living in Alaska or Northern Canada or Sweden, because I hate, hate, hate to be hot.

The Las Lagunas sim gives you the sense that it could have a hot, tropical environment or a breezy island climate. I choose breezy! And what is better for a breezy day than this soft, billowy top from Arisaris that keeps the edge off but lets that cool air in?

My great necklace and earrings today are from Amorous and I love their great geometric design. Ikon Innovia keeps putting out new styles and colors, but one thing I really appreciate is that from time to time he gives us a luscious new color in the good old Sunrise design, which I still love. These are called Summer, and they reflect the dreamy haze of the season to perfection.

Big Hair

Curly hair fascinates me. I had a roommate with super-curly hair once and I could spend hours sitting there pulling the strands of her curls straight, letting them go and watching them spring back into the curly shape. Needless to say she was a very patient and forbearing friend! My own hair in RL is somewhere between straight and curly, but with no uniformity, so instead of nice volume I get either a limp mess or a rats’ nest. Just another reason to be grateful for SL hair! And for this style in particular, from Sebastien Aries at Shag.

Also new to love today is the brand new Kim set from Endra Graves at Artistry by E. My sexy henna art-tattoos are courtesy of Guenever DeCuir at Collisions.
