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.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Alice Blue

There is so much new fabulousness flying around out there, I am feeling a little overwhelmed by it all. As I was going through my inventory I found this older cute blue jacket from Laqroki and decided that while there’s a time and a place for the new and fabulous, the old friends should not be forgotten.
My challenge winners (who should send me a notecard or IM with their color choice of Mayfly’s mesh eyes) are:
1. Anichka Savira
2. Simply Dou
3. Moniq Salamander
Congratulations! Keep on reading to find out about next week’s giveaway!

Tattoo Time

Today I wanted to show this gorgeous tintable tattoo from Nina Flux. It was originally white, but can be tinted to any color you like. I went for a dark pink so it would stand out against my gorgeous new skin from Apple May Designs. Ain’t it a beauty?

Alva

I love coming back from vacation to find that there are so many new releases flying around! Mallory Cowen has released the new Alva skin and I am loving the natural look of it—Mallory tends to make skins that are a bit pouty and puffy in the lips but the two latest, Mini and Alva have a little more natural lip and the skin is a bit more matte in texture. I think it’s beautiful.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Asparagus

They say it ain’t easy being green, but I always love wearing green clothes and had so much already in my inventory to choose from for this challenge, so I must disagree. I stumbled upon this beautiful sim created by Maria Vought, and the only difficulty was choosing a specific location! Fortunately a kind soul and new friend showed me all the possible locations. Eggplant next week…I think I like these vegetable colors!
