Change your thoughts and you change your world

I've discovered another perk of having such great people living on my island. Instant pretty places to take pictures!! What can I say? I can be incredibly lazy and finding a spot for pics can be hard. So thanks, Heidi and Black, for having a nice spot on your parcel for me to shoot a pic! I know you did it just for me!

Style - Change your thoughts and you change your world

coldLogic released more mesh goodies for spring this week, and oh I am in LOVE! Of course, I love pretty much all they do, but the new Weiss tops and Smith skirts are a total win in my book! They do standard sizing and the sizes are very true to fit.

Oh, and did you know that Exposeur is having a big sale?? All kinds of amazing poses just for youuu! The sale is until the 31st, so hurry down to shop!

Once There Was This Thing Called Spring

The weather has been so lovely lately, it's been hard to stay indoors! But of course, I do, because I have to get all the new mesh goodies!

Style - Once There Was This Thing Called Spring

From E! comes the new Kate mesh dress. It's just my style - simple and ladylike! The dress does come in Standard Sizes and is pretty true to fit. I wear M in standard sizing and this was a perfect fit.

And how adorable is my hair?? The new mesh Lola hair from Wasabi Pills was just released and I am in love with it. It's so incredibly perfect for spring and summer! The little scarf for the hair has a HUD for changing the color, and there are 12 colors and 4 patterns to choose from.

I'm so happy with all this mesh for spring! I want MORE!!

Let's Take A Trip!

Helloooo readers! I've been on vacation!

Style - Let's go on a trip!

Well, switch out the hotel background for the deck at my tia's house, and that's the vacation I was on. :) It was great to come home to new items! Like the mesh SS12 Shorts from Leverocci! Oh my word, I have been SEARCHING for cute mesh shorts and these fit the bill to a tee! Of course, now I want loads more mesh shorts. I understand that with mesh, we can have loose, flowey, drapey things - but hey, sometimes we need cute little things, too!

Speaking of cute little things, look at my cute Keen Tank from Jane! You get two options with this one, the smaller hem, which is good if you're wearing regular jeans, and the wide hem, which works better with other mesh bottoms.

And hey hey, guess who is having a 50% off sale?? One of my most favorite pose stores - aDORKable Poses!! From now until March 31st, you get 50% off all the goodies, and if you've been reading this blog for a while, you know that I use her poses a LOT because they're just that darn good!

Well, I've got to keep unpacking my bags. That's the problem with traveling. It's fun to go, it's great to get home, but unpacking sucks!!

A Blooming Rose

Fashion For Life starts today at noon!! I've been in pink girly heaven with this gown from My Precious by Agnes Finney called Forever Yours.

Style - A Blooming Rose

I don't wear a lot of gowns, but THIS one...WOW! So very impressed! It's like walking springtime, and being this lovely shade of pink, you know I'm very happy to float around in it.

I'm not sure which sim My Precious is on for FFL [I know, bad blogger!] but I'll update this when I get the SLurl. But truly, you should walk around FFL anyway because there's some wonderful stuff out there!

Guarded By An Angel

One of my favorite times of the year is about to start! Fashion For Life starts on the 10th, and that marks the annual start of the official ‘Relay for Life’ events that take place inworld each year. I love it because you can always pick up some great things for charity, like this Adorabelle angel outfit from Angelwing!

Style - Guarded By An Angel

This outfit is really something! 20 pieces and lots of great prim work! The staff even has a pose in it. It's not something I'd wear every day, obviously, but it is certainly impressive if you need something for photos or even if you're RPing an angel. Loves it!

Fashion For Life starts on March 10th and is 10 sims full of great designers all working together to support the American Cancer Society.

D Is For Delicious

Last year for the Shoe Fair, the creators were all assigned to one of the official bloggers. I was lucky enough to get Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora, and I was very happy! Donna Flora is one of those stores where when you buy something, you instantly feel just a little more fashionable.

Style - D is for Delicious

I've been in love with the Dana shoes since last year. They're not overly fancy, but they have just that little bit of "kick" [no pun intended!] with the jeweled buckle that brightens up an outfit. I also love the thick heel with the little embellishment. Totally classy.

Speaking of stores that start with the letter D, Decoy is bounding onto the mesh scene! I picked up the Valerie dress at the March Mesh Madness event. I love simple little sundresses and this fits the bill to an absolute tee.

Oh, and while you're at MMM12, stop by Maxi Gossamer. This new-to-me store has some great mesh jewelry, like the Babette necklace I'm wearing. Only this necklace I got for free by joining the free in-world group, so if you want to sample the work before deciding to buy, you can do that. But I guarantee after you see it, you'll want to buy more more more!

Cheerfully Spring!

So many great deals and sales and events going on! Let me see how much I can smash into one post!

The March Mesh Madness event is going on, and if you're able to get in [it's pretty packed!], you can get this fab Thistle dress from Jane and cute Ginger hair from Wasabi Pills!

Style - Cheerfully Spring!

Jane is now doing standard sizes, which is a huge WIN for me ever since I modded my shape to fit into the size I wanted. And this dress is so fluffy and adorable, I don't want to take it off! And I am such a fan of Wasabi Pills now that they do mesh hair. This hair is kind of 70s/80s retro with the hairband and it has a low pony tail in the back.

Stumblebum just started its new round yesterday! The theme this time is "Cheer" and the Briar skin from Aura is out in two tones with a couple of makeups. I'm wearing the Aqua makeup to match my dress.

Style - Cheerfully Spring, closeup

Briar is my everyday skin lately, so new makeups are always nice! The skins this time only come in the Honey and Espresso tones. I'm wearing Honey, and I have to say, I'm really getting attached to it although my normal tone is Milk.

Also for Stumblebum, Frooti has a Happy Days Mini Pack of 3 poses, which I'm using for my post today!

And for SCD's Disco Deals, Dark Mouse has out this delicate Les Etoiles Brillent necklace & earrings set. I am ALWAYS looking for more delicate jewelry, so this fits the bill nicely! I'm wearing the Copper metal here, and it also comes in gold and silver.

So many sales still going on, so I need to run!
