Today I Choose Joy

The best part about weekends is that all you need is a comfy shirt and a great pair of jeans to take you from place to place! [And a good cup of coffee, of course!]

Style - Today I Choose Joy


I am incredibly picky about jeans in SL. It's not uncommon to see me in the same dang jeans for ages. Luckily, I have awesome friends who introduce me to new places and people, and that's how I ended up trying out the Runway jeans from CARGO. I love these jeans! They fit just right and have the cutest booty! C'mon, ladies. You know that's what we look for in a pair of jeans! These come with a HUD that give you some variations in color, and you can change the cuff a couple of ways. The only thing that would make these more perfect for me is if the cuff had a long bootcut.

For a birthday gift, my awesome husband bought me the Slink Physique body! The alpha HUD recently got an upgrade, so if you already have the body, be sure to go get the update. I have mostly just used the hands and feet for a while now and didn't think I really needed the body. But I like to stay current when I can, so now I get to be like my girls and wear a mesh body. The one thing I like is that it's still ME, but just more smoothed out. I don't have any desire to be bigger, or have a bigger chest or butt, which is why I've stayed away from much more than the hands and feet so far. As you can see, my regular clothes fit pretty well over the body, and I was able to alpha out what I needed. The alpha parts are MUCH improved with the update, but there are still some parts I'd like to see added, like side boob and shoulder blades.

Have an awesome Saturday!!

A Little Wanderlust

So much going on lately, so let's jump right on in!

Style - A Little Wanderlust-1


I have been SO into the new dresses that Coldlogic released this week! The McKay might be my favorite of the new releases because it's just so loose and pretty! I love that the print on the dress kind of reminds me of watercolored pictures, too.

The Liaison Collaborative opened up last week and how cute is my pose from Le Poppycock? This one I'm doing is called Wanderlust and comes with the balloons. It's part of the Chasing Dreams gacha at TLC.

Fri.day just released the new Zoe heels and I'm loving the chunky heel look that seems to be trending for fall!

Style - A Little Wanderlust-2


Hurry on to Fri.day if you want to get the Zoe heels because they're 50% off for 48 hours! Woo! These are for the Slink high feet. Btw, did you know there's a free ankle lock at Slink now? Comes in SUPER freakin' handy when you're wearing the high and medium feet because those tend to "break" the ankle in a lot of poses and it looks bad.

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Getaway

The <3 Ulaa fundraiser opened with a bang! The community has really banded together to help her, and I think that's really what makes SL amazing. Of course, she had to make something for this event, too!

Style - Getaway


The Shabby Sea Shack is so classically Funky Junk. It's a simple, one room, beach cottage. Inside, there is a decorative fireplace with candles, and some other pieces of beach decor. The cottage itself is just 14 LI, but with the decor it comes to 38 LI. So if you're budgeting prims, take some stuff out and it's perfect!

The <3 Ulaa event runs until August 18th, so hop on over to shop! There are some awesome things there!

The summit of beauty and love

It's Collabor88's birthday this month! There aren't many monthly events that last longer than a year or so in SL, and even fewer that do it and stay so consistently good. It's a big event for their birthday month, so if you still can't get in [as I've heard even just this morning!], keep trying! You need to shop!

Style - The summit of beauty and love-1

Style - The summit of beauty and love-2


Fri.day is at C88 for the birthday fun with the new Persephone heels. I really like these because they're almost a bootie, but not quite, so they pair up well with both dresses and jeans.

I'm standing on the rooftop deck of the Santorini Villa by Barnesworth Anubis, also out at Collabor88 this month. This is definitely Greek inspired, and it's all clean and open on the inside. It's only 89 land impact, so it leaves you with lots of wiggle room for decorating.

Happy birthday, C88!

Give A Little Bit

In a perfect world, no one would ever get sick. Or if someone we loved did get sick, we'd have the money and time to see them. But this isn't a perfect world, and sometimes we need a helping hand. Ulaa Coronet's mother has pancreatic cancer and Ulaa needs to go see her mom while there is still time. Ulaa's little boy has never met his grandma and you all can imagine how heartbreaking it would be for all of them if he never got to. You can read about it on her Go Fund Me page and donate that way, or you can shop at the <3 Ulaa fundraiser that is coming up!

Style - Give A Little Bit


Several designers have banded together to put up some items for Ulaa. Proceeds [either 50% or 100%] will be going to Ulaa for her trip. Enfant Terrible put out these adorable Ulaa Heels and I love them! You can never have too many strappy heels in your life, am I right? These are for the high Slink feet.

<3 Ulaa runs from August 14th until August 18th, and I really hope you guys go shop. There will be donation jars there at the event in the off chance that you don't find anything you like, or you can donate directly to her Go Fund Me page.

Keep Your Head Up, Move Along

My little personal "stop being lazy and blog for 7 days" challenge ended on Sunday, but I really think it's what I needed to get back in the groove of things. Not saying that I'm going to continue blogging daily on this blog or anything, but it has definitely become fun for me again, so there's that! If you find yourself in a blogging slump, give yourself a little challenge. It just might kick you out of it!

Fission released some totally adorable new shoes recently! The Spectator pumps are cute and vintagey and come in a bunch of colors! Of course, I had to grab my favorite colors, teal and white, for this post. They are pretty inexpensive at just $150L a pair, but the pink and white ones are on sale for $75L until Sunday, so that's a great little bargain for you budget conscious folks out there. These are add-ons for the Slink medium height feet.

Time for more shopping!

If I Fall For You, I'll Never Be The Same

I'll admit, my favorite new show is Naked and Afraid. They stick these 2 people out in the middle of the jungle or the swamp or just some remote place, buck naked, and tell them to survive for 3 weeks. Sometimes they'll make some clothes out of leaves and stuff, but I feel like if there would ever be a time to wear animal print, it would be then. I'm not always a huge fan of animal print myself, but between being naked and wearing animal print, the print would win every time.

Style - If I fall for you, I'll never be the same


Emery is out at FaMESHed with the Andy Leopard Jeans and the Oslo Basic Top. Like I said, I'm not a big fan of animal print, but the print on the jeans is just subtle enough for me. Both the jeans and the tops come in several colors.

My Slink Obsession starts tomorrow and I'm thrilled to see Ingenue is part of it! The Nanette wedges are simply perfect! If you are still not on board with the Slink feet and hands at the very least, maybe My Slink Obsession will change your mind!

Happy Monday!
