Feels Like Summer.

Gone are the birds that were our summer guests.

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I wanted to do a goodbye summer post after being inspired by the new music video by Childish Gambino.. I also realized it got a looot quieter around where I live… Which means the birds have already left. But a lot of days.. It still feels like summer. Special thanks to Baja Cove for having this really beautiful layout and shot I was able to get cause of it. Unfortunately I am playing a bit of damage control catch up so apologies I don’t have much to say this time! But at least most the things I’m wearing are or will mainstore releases once C88 ends for the new round. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥

Graves.

We got a bit of a R&B bop going on with this new release pack I’m showcasing! If you haven’t tried it already because the name alone doesn’t tell you much, you’re missing out!
This actually really good for those 90’s and early 00’s bops! I was able to match this up with a few popular love songs that are my personal faves. One of them to start off is the lovely Toni Braxton – You’re Makin’ Me HIgh which I actually played by accident. Pulled a Bob Ross, had a little happy accident lol. I also found Ledisi – I Blame You to be another nice song for this to go to. And of course that new song of Toni, Toni Braxton – Long As I Live.
This dance pack was hiding at the August round of Shiny Shabby but be on the lookout for it to be released in the mainstore! Woop! No wait lines lol. Make sure you definitely try this if you are a R&B lover, you wont be disappointed. Wishing you happy shopping annnd happy dancing. ♥

Tea Crash.

You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.

– C. S. Lewis

Tea.. Tea.. Tea. Tea. TEAAAA. Teaaaa, Gromit.. lol. Apologies, haven’t slept yet. But I had a feew teaa things I wanted to share as well as sparkles and kittens. That’s a pretty awesome combo right? Sparkles, kittens.. and tea. Yeaaah. 😀

I don’t know what made me want to go green.. But I was really enjoying how these boots I’m wearing look in lime green. Unfortunately it is not sun bright light nice so I used the light grey instead and it still went along with my outfit. 😀 Man I love shoes that come in fatpack of colors. But can we take the time to just gush about this outfit by Cynful? X3 Especially since the sequins actually take on the color of light. (Bottom picture is a good example with the neon from the cart. Oh! Yeah the cart has neon lights on it that emit light. X3) And of course if you get this outfit in the fatpack, you get some really cool bonus colors. 😀

This is my favorite… belly button piercing… EVUH! It is so cute and it literally has fur on it that you can toggle on and off. I included a closeup of the belly button down below as well as the color options, mind you! Not the picture right under the paragraphs but under the gif below. You can tint everything on the jewelry even the kitty head so it will always match. Seriously.. My crazy cat lady senses are tingling here. Greaaat item at Kurenai.

I feel like it is my duty to warn you however, New Faces is not on marketplace. Sure you can search it but almost all of them are copybotted, so be wary. You won’t get any support for those items and might even get reported for supporting a copybotter. If it’s not by Gwen don’t chance it, just a fair warning. ^^ I also apologize ahead of time for my dark, dark gif. Unfortunately I couldn’t get my viewer to stop auto refreshing on me at a higher level of detail so I had to lower it as well as lost my actual windlight I use for gifs. Just blah all around right? OH! I didn’t mention I got a new laptop so I am basically redoing everything I had and missing a few things that are now forever gone. XD So I do apologize for my slow postings and me being all over the place with reviewing certain things. However if you have any questions on something I’m wearing, I’ll try to help. :3 Wishing you happy shopping. ♥

Feelings.

Wooo the dance and song that has gone viral all about the world has finally made its way into SL! Not only that but just yesterday Drake finally released the official music video for it. For some reason I really liked it. XD Especially him showing some of the Kiki/Keke challenges. [Video captions say Kiki but I swear people been saying keke. XD] This is a mainstore release!! So no annoying events to TP to and wait for a bunch of things to rez. 😀

I was worried I might not find any other songs to honor the legendary keke/kiki challenge. I actually found some really good songs I haven’t tried yet as well as some repeat groovers. One of the repeats to grace my ears and this dance is N.E.R.D & Rihanna – Lemon. I even found the oldie but goodie, Missy Elliott – Work It to work really well as well. Oh! I don’t think I have mentioned this song yet but, Marshmello & Anne-Marie – FRIENDS is another one to grace my list. 😀

Remember to listen to some of your favorite songs while trying out dances. You’d be amazed and what some songs can work with Sync’d dances. Wishing you happy shopping and dancing. ♥

Strange Sunset.

All strange and terrible events are welcome, but comforts we despise.

– Cleopatra

Today marks the day, in Japan, for the Kurenai event to begin! You can expect the TP gates to fly open at 06:59(PDT). Until that time arrives, I have another quick sneak peek of what to expect at this Final Round of Kurenai.

It’s been a long while since I have blogged something from this designer.. Good times with them on my old blog curvethedulce, good times. But I never thought they’d actually try their hands in making hair! And it’s super cute I might add. With some minimal edits I did need to tint their browns darker for me to wear. But look how flippin’ cue these flowers are in the hair? Not to mention the braid tails. Talk about a nice surprise.

By the way, about this fan.. Yes it comes with a bento animation to fan yourself buuut it’s not a high high priority so you can edit the fan with your animare! 😀 This is a nice point to point out for fellow bloggers because sometimes you cannot edit the pose built into an object which can be frustrating. But here, that’s not the case here! You can also click the fan to restart the fanning animation which is also really helpful for not breaking position. This is a gacha with I think.. No rares, seems to be all common so a fair share in every pull. 😀

There’s also a good amount of nail polishes for the final round! I made sure to get a nice close up of these nails in a separate picture. Mainly because I could not animate my arm well enough to pull off a yawn and show. I did try though lol! Anywho, these nails include 5 colors. Really neat part is that the designer took the time to change up the nails to include a very nice pattern on your middle finger. My favorite thing about these nails is that they apply to both fingers AND toes! I always need my toenails to match, so I am thrilled that it applied to both.

Guess who else I was able to squeeze into this post? One of my sponsors! And if you couldn’t guess, yes the sponsored item is the really cute knotted dress. Unlike the other maxi dresses that touch your feet, this is more ankle friendly with any foot shape. I could walk in shallow water without worrying about the dress touching the water height. But of course I always have a gif included below to show you the exact length. Now this dress isn’t available for you to get juuust yet. It’s going to be in the August round of Mesh Body Addicts! So lookie there, two previews in one. X3

Welp, I think I blabbed enough! Wishing you all happy shopping when these events finally open. ♥

Lemon III.

Oh my gosh,  a little personal goal for me here… But I just reached 300 posts officially on my blog. \o/ That finally surpasses my very first blog by a good bit. I’m so happy and didn’t even realize it.

But on to some better news, it’s time for another unisex dance paaaack! What’s so special about this one? It’s inspired by the music video Lemon by N.E.R.D. featuring Rihanna. Another nice ear worm song that I usually have to play 3-4x a week. X3 You can find this pack at the equal10 event! You have until August 5th. 😀

This one was a bit harder to match with some songs. The song alone has a very unique beat but it’s not impossible. ;D I just had to keep playing on youtube. Lo’ and behold I have found three songs I personally love to go with these dances. First one is a blast from the past, Sean Paul – Like Glue. We also have something youtube just randomly put before me, G-Eazy – No Limit REMIX. I didn’t even know there was a remix. X3 Last but not least is a rare goldie, Royce da 5’9″ – Caterpillar ft. Eminem, King Green. Thanks again youtube for that autoplay button or else I wouldn’t have found these three. X3 Remember to be jammin when you buy songs! Wishing you happy shopping.

Relaxation is Key.

Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes… including you.

– Anne Lamott

It’s time for the FINAL round of Kurenai!..  I can’t believe it’s already that time again… I could of sworn I had a bit more time. I couldn’t wait for this round to unfold and once again I was not disappointed.. Of course this event is running from July, 27th 08:00(PDT) to August, 31th 06:59(PDT). Consider this a really early sneak peek. 😉

I was really drawn to the silkworm farmer gacha. It looks soo realistic, no animations in it though but definitely beautiful decor for those wanting to decorate a village accurately. It’s not featured in this post but will be in another; a farmhouse is also in this gacha. Felt so honored to get to blog this.

Now the house I’m napping on is by another designer, has working doors, 1 main room and 2 side rooms. Definitely lives up to the architecture of a Engawa. I just wish I had a proper courtyard to show how Engawa’s are for but I think I did okay here as well. I did however include a link to describe what a Engawas use is. This structure comes with the option of paper windows or glass.

Not only that but how cute is this straw hat? X3 It actually fit my hair on the first try. That doesn’t happen too often for me lols. Be sure to on the lookout for some more Kurenai previews. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥
