Going Hawaiian…

Now I will be dating myself saying this beach shack I found at my next stop reminded me of the move Gidget goes Hawaiian ~ yes yes am OLD *laughing ~ I loved all those movies and that is what I grew up watching in my very younger years ….they were I guess what you would call classics ~ and those around my age might recognize Sandra Dee that pined after Moondoggie…days of pure innocence ~ but first I had to get there ~

Where is the Pilot ~ 

Hmmm as I look around for the pilot of this rather small aircraft on this rather small airstrip…but at least I look nice huh ~ Wearing the latest from Stormcrow Designs ~ these are separates but love the Crossed top that comes with a HUD that has 20 different selections with patterns and solids to choose from ~ along with standard mesh sizes she has also included mesh body sizes as you see the Maitreya size fits me perfect ~ the Suzi Shorts are high-waisted giving you a very sexy look ~ love the belt position too ~ also come in standard mesh sizes and mesh bodies along with a Hud of 15 choices and 3 belt metals ~ course for all this shopping I had to bring my latest bag from !Lyrical B!zarre Templates!Tropicalia” in Pink…also comes in White, Blue, Gold, Green, Mauve ~ great colors…oh pilot has arrived and we are ready for take off….

Me doing Gidget impression

Ok shopping is done and after changing into this gorgeous swimsuit by Sevyn East called Kalani Bikin Hibiscus in white ~ as I pose am looking around for the surfers as the huge waves look very inviting ~ but am so out of practice I can only imagine that I would wipe out more than I could stand ~ so it is just look pretty time to show off this suit…

Hibiscus Suit in White

Opening Day……

It is opening day at Designer Showcase and my my what a selection we have for August ~ 32 Designers that present to you the best of the best ~ as one of the DS Bloggers I will do my best in showing off at least one item from each Designer ~ Yes that is a lot of blog posts for me and to my readers but hey you and I both know we are good in what we do ~ laughing…just nice coming back refreshed from spending a day at the beach ~ its tiring and relaxing if that makes sense but grew up spending almost every single summer at my Gram’s beach house and was on my bucket list to live at when I retired ~ a little over three years ago I made that happen…while am not as close to the beach as I wanted a little short bus ride *20 min.* puts my tootsies in the sand ~ these days I grab my bike as well, park my chair, beach towel and stuff then ride around town for about 30 to 45 min.  ~ enjoying just the quietness of the ride ~ come back and hit the sand, get hot, go into ocean and repeat over and over till its time to grab the bus home ~ for me that is just pure heaven…now refreshed am ready to show off the first of many from this months Designer Showcase

Patsy Pencil Dress ~ Zanze 

This is a stunning ensemble ~ a different style cut of the skirt with a peak of the lacy slip underneath ~ just feels very chic on ~ and comes in 2 versions ~ this one if the “Blues” focusing on the color of the skirt ~ but with the HUD that comes with it you get a choice of 5 other top colors ~ Red, Teal, Black, Purple, Pink and White which I am wearing ~ with a variety of sizes you should have absolutely no trouble fitting but there is a demo if you have concerns ~ 100% mesh ~ the other version is “Blacks” with the xact same Hud as the Blues…As I paired it up with another Designer “Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes”

DSAug1d
Bailees Black-Gold by Lindy

This is a really well made peep style shoe ~ nice detailing on the strap that goes across the toes ~ these are for either Slink High or Maitreya ~ Lindy has some other great shoes that I will be wearing with other outfits…Please stick around to see some more outfits from Designer Showcase or if you are in a hurry just to grab them up here is your TAXI to take you there…

Thank you again for taking time out to read my blog posts as I do get such nice feedback from the designers as well as other bloggers ~ makes me smile and am very appreciated as we each have our own style of blogging I am in awe of a couple of them that said they read mine…really made my day ~ Anyway thank you to those that support me in my efforts in this…..hugzz and guess what I will be back soon 🙂 ~ remember life is just too short to hate

All Around SL I go……

I did say during these 2 weeks of Aloha Fair I would try my best to show you a lot of different beaches ~ it is nice to discover different sims ~ different places to wander or just flit about looking for a place to take some pics ~ and yes I keep a list of places that I like to go to so this list that am making up is just simply “Beaches” ~ well that is a given huh..*giggling* and right now as I look outside it is simply pouring buckets and buckets…what little sun I got will be faded once the sun comes out again ~ it is at times like planning things and poof they just go up in smoke ~ the other day took what I thought was a terrific blog pic but when I looked at it am like whaaaat it was just horrid and no I won’t go into details but hey things happen ~ and for those that love messing with windlights I discovered some really good ones by again reading other blogs ~ his blog  has over 12 windlights that I do like…if you are like me and love messing with them ~ even me figured out how to install them ~ ok that is my tip for today ~ as I have a lot to show and tell you …..

ALH3aa
Nous Vous Sleeve Jumpsuit

I like the color pattern of Palm & Flowers that Nous Vous has used  giving it that tropical feel to a some what kimono style jumpsuit ~ possibly a great cover-up before or after spending time at the beach ~ this outfit comes in Fitted and Standard sizes as well as Slink and Maitreya *which I am wearing…yes I love Maitreya and do not see me changing anytime soon ~ the beach I landed on is called “Fire Beach”   and sadly I did not spend a lot of time at any location that am showing you between RL jumping at me, my sweet SL hubby coming on and took me shopping I just had enough time to finish up my blog ~ but please do not let that stop you from taking the LM’s and looking around because I will be back as it did look like a nice beach…oh yes my hair comes from my Sponsor “rezology” ~ its called Equanimity and here is the Marketplace link for it … off we go to our next location

ALH3c
*LX* Luau Skirt and top 

Am standing very very still trying as I do pose for this shot but looking behind me looks like a “Great White” and you know how that goes and their fetish with docks…anyone hear the tune of the Jaws theme playing…I shudder when I think of that one scene ~ but hey have not been here in a long time it is the 7Seas Fishing Game Headquarters where I used to spend lotz and lotz of time fishing ~ my inventory overfilled with fish…thought it would be interesting to show off *LX* Luau Skirt and top ~ as each set does come with 2 tops, and 2 skirts when you use whichever set as I chose the Monochrome to show you but they also have Naturals, Pinks, Red Wine, and…..whew lot more you can mix and match as  I did with both sets ~ plus plenty of sizes to fit you ~

ALH3cc
Ash Skirt and White Top 

I am feeling that shark getting closer and closer so not a good idea for me to stick around too much longer ~ so lets just wave bye bye to Mr. Shark and head for a different location..

ALH3b
Aloha Dress ~ Sass

Our last and final destination today is New Brighton Pier that am sure a lot of you from the UK will recognize as am told it is based on ~ was a very brief stay as you can see those storm clouds gathering even faster-this dress by Sass is very summery ~ even comes with the sandals that I have a close up for you ~ Teal *am wearing* as well as 2 other colors ~ I do like the shoes that match the dress matching it a very overall nice outfit…Really like the pattern of this Aloha Dress ~ a nice flirty dress that will make it in as a cute casual outfit…

ALH3a
Sandals comes with outfit

These are for medium slink and I will comment that couple months ago I did treat myself to getting the Deluxe Slink feet from Slink and if you can afford it I give it 2 thumbs up as now I just do not have to fiddle around with taking feet off and on and trying to find my feet *sounds funny but you know what I mean for me it was a hassle and I basically wore only Slink High now doesn’t bother me because it is easy peasy to change feet…give the demo a try and they also have “kitten feet” and no they do not look like kitty feet it is just the height and as well as on pointe ~ for those that like ballet…Oh my hair ooops forgot to change it as I popped into another outfit and location but from the last 2 pics it is from eXxess Siva ~ also a fan of the newest ones due to the “breeze” factor ~ grinz hey I know am a little odd but love it how it moves like a soft breeze blowing your hair very softly…

There you have 3 outfits that are strictly featured at Aloha Fair ~ first from Nous Vous, 2nd and 3rd are from LX the Luau Skirt and Top and lastly the Aloha Dress from Sass…all shot on location using poses by Image Essentials that are also featured at the event from her Aloha Set ~ thank you to each Designer for letting me show off these and thank you to all my followers that have given me some great feedback ~ hugzz and one last thing that I need to give you is………the TAXI to Aloha Fair….cya soon

Taking a Side Trip ….

Its very early morning in SL not even 6am yet but in the USA that is my usual wake up ~ IKR too early but the sun shines in my window during the summer months and that is my wake up ~ great huh?  Especially when hey I can sleep as long as I want am no longer on a time clock hehehe ~ but it is nice to spend some quality me time before roomies wake and dogs start barking at the walkers walking by ~ it is so quiet here and in SL so while everyone is struggling to get into Hair Fair and yes that has started I discovered this place called Outer Garden and oh my what a wonderful Sim this is ~ will be going back just for some great photo ops as you can TP to couple spots and I chose Chole but the entire sim is just as wonderful ~

DSJuly16a
Tank & Jeans by Zanze

From the back of this outfit you can see the sheer lace pattern of the tank ~ that I chose a gorgeous soft blue color to wear with the skinny jeans…

DSJuly16c

For the side view you can see a very nice revealing side split that hey don’t have that xtra serving of cake if you are wanting to show off your gorgeous curves…oh wait I so forgot this is SL where you can eat to your hearts content and never gain an ounce…hmm does that sound like I just described heaven to you *laughing* ok moving on and yes those jeans are very form fitting to your legs ~ back to the top as it comes in various sizes, which I am sure will fit yours just like mine perfectly…

DSJuly16b

From the front you can see the patterns of the jeans and notice the nice draping of the material ~ making it a very summery look ~  yes I was gonna sit but hey for you am standing to show off this gorgeous outfit…btw did you notice the hair since it was so hot I did need to pull it up and back and rezology had just the perfect one called Sky 219 that you can grab at Marketplace HERE

I have to thank 乙zⓞιє 乙єє Ðєtђℓу creator of Zanze for letting me show off this outfit and one more thing before I go that it is very important the top and jeans are separate so you can mix match ~ tank has a very nice Hud that gives 6 different options ~ jeans are in blue or black also with a Hud as well and very affordable prices too…Taxi for Designer Showcase is right HERE ~enjoy and will be back later with some more Hair to show off ~

DsJuly10aa
Carlise Dress ~ Snowpaws 

Yes that is me with hands filled with shopping bags and looking very chic ~ I know right ~ had to take a second look again but it is me I swear it and with the help of Snowpaws and her very glamorous dress that is hip hugging and body form fitting along with the talents of ISBJ skin creator am transformed into the stunning fashion model…

DsJuly10c
Carlise in Magenta 

There are several other color choices as well and if you look closer you can see an added feature on the collar its a Collar of Flowers that you can add or not as it is your choice…from the material of this dress to the design it has Snowpaws creativity all over it and always have admired her work…

DsJuly10d
Close up of ISBJ Tammi Skin 

As you can see from the close up above how creamy and gorgeous this skin “Tammi” from ISBJ is and also the collar attachment on the dress ~ but the skin I just really love ~ very high end looking that just feels like I should be walking down a runway peering out among others ~ or plastered on a fashion magazine ~ it is my shape as I did not want to change that but for the demo she has included a shape for you as well with also being able to purchase it if you choose…everything was included the appliers for my slink hands/feet and for my body there was a Slink Omega hud which was very easy to use ~

Adding to the final touch of this transformation is putting on a hair “Voluminous Topknot” from rezology one of my sponsors and as I had mentioned before it gives you in the Hud to be able to pick any color you want ~ that is such a great feature …will add in the credits the MP link for you..As for the Carlise Dress by Snowpaws and the Skin “Tammi” by ISBJ you will find them until the end of the month at Designer Showcase, which just click HERE to take you there…huge kudo’s to Carrie Snowpaw and Insatia Jharls for giving me the opportunity to show off their creations ~ thank you both …to my readers and followers please know that I appreciate all of you that take time out to read, to like and to send me compliments…thank you as well……hugzz till next time

Summertime is Here ….

Summertime is here with the passing of July 4th at least where I live it is the start of the tourist season ~ rates go up, traffic gets bad and the ones like myself want to just stay away from the huge crowds ~ to find a spot on the beach you get up early and enjoy the solitude ~ just like in SL you at times want to find that perfect spot where you just hear the water lapping a cry from a lone seagull and enjoy the peacefulness around you ….So I went hunting for just that spot and found it at one of my faves “Black Kite” ~ the colors are amazing especially to show off the outfits from Blac Label Boutique part of this months Designer Showcase

DE4a
Amaryllis Lavendar ~ {BLB}

A very cute and stylish shorts outfit ~ the top with the higher neckline I do like that and then how it flares out ~ with the shorts a good length so they show as well …

DE4b
Amaryllis Fiesta

Some great color choices as you can see by the top 2 images ~ first one is Lavender and the bottom is Fiesta but there are total 5 different ones that you can choose from ~ 100% mesh and if you need a demo there is one available for you ~ Remember this is only at the Designer Showcase in case you are looking for it at their store ~ this will run till the end of the month but go early so you can wear one of these outfits before summer is over…By the way my taxi is ready to take you so please click HERE ~ thank you to Blac Quartz ~ Designer/Owner for letting me show off these very chic outfits…
