Jubilee Is The New Shopping District

Jubilee Dogs

Recently I went to visit the new sim Jubilee. This is a shopping sim with a place to party, and lots of places to hang out and take pictures. The sim is rated adult, so you will need to be age verified to shop there. Luna Jubilee has always been rather good at landscaping, and she continues to bring that out at her new sim. These two pictures were taken at the Jubilee sim. One of them was from in front of her new main store after I derendered a lot of things. (right click >more >more >derender >temporary). After you derender and item it should come back if you teleport out of and then back in the sim. I just received a notecard that !bang is having a permanent 50% off sale on older poses at the Theory location.

Neve Ballerina Dress

Neve is the new product line from coldLogic. The mesh clothing is made to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Slink Physique, and the default avatar. I am wearing the ballerina dress. As you can see, it comes in a few texture options to make the dress unique for the occasion. Each set comes in four color choices which are changeable by a hud. In my pictures you can see that lively set can be very delicate and soft, while the blossom looks ready for a night out. The third color pack comes in neutral colors which are perfect for most anything.

The Reasons Why We Love Autumn

The Secret Store - Blogger Search - Caroline Apollo

Autumn will be here before we know it. I love it when the leaves change colors and the weather gets cooler. It’s nice to be able to go for a long walk. There is nothing like summertime, but I am not a fan of the extreme heat. And then there are pumpkins. I know some of you are not fans of the overdone drink, still I do love pumpkin spice lattes. Recently I went to visit a shopping sim that had nice builds and landscaping. I was happy to see they have already transformed into fall.

I was on my way out for the night, so I grabbed a quick pastry and latte at the local coffee house. I posed for quick paparazzi pictures before I hit the night life. They shouted, “Who are you wearing and who did your gorgeous hair?!” I paired up The Secret Store’s new Nathalie Tutu Dress with a Gold Lame Cropped Jacket that I picked up earlier in the year. I believe the jacket color was a special for the N21 event. These cute shoes that I am wearing have a butterfly on the top and were made by Ingenue. My gorgeous Sugar Hair style was created by The Secret Store. And the aqua gemstone statement jewelry came from Modern Couture.

There’s a New Brand in Town

Neve Athena Dress

The fashion design team of coldLogic have rebranded themselves to Neve. This new line will carry mesh support for Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Slink Physique, and the default avatar. I am very happy to hear this because I love their clothes, but I do not like to take off my Maitreya Lara body. The main store landmarks and marketplace links will remain in the same location. Over the next few days I will be showing you their new designs.

I really love how Neve is using a color change hud on all new garments. Shown in the image is the hud. You are able to choose the color of the top, skirt, and ties. They can be mixed up anyway that you desire. Today was a boho kind of day. I decided to wear the Neve Athena dress in the boho design. I am wearing the cream colored top with the plum skirt and ties. The dress also comes in neutral and lively color packs.

My gorgeous Paon shoes in bronze from Ingenue matched the Neve dress color perfectly. The fun pose is new from !bang for Shiny Shabby. I’m still wearing my hair in the cute pony tails that I picked up at Truth Hair. I thought the leather wrap bracelets went well with the dress along with my Atomic Sweet Deer Romantic Necklace. Some things never go out of style.

Jewelry Steals You Better Grab Before They Are Gone

Jewelry Steals

A couple of jewelry steals that are going away in just a few days can be found at The Dressing Room Fusion. The sale started August 16th and goes on for 14 days. Which means it will end August 30th. I found these hoop earrings with a pearl drop from Kunglers. They are also available in a couple of other colors. My favorite set found at TDRF was made by Modern Couture. This gorgeous necklace and earring set is a steal at just L$70. You will find this set at the sale in three gemstone choices and set in gold.

My Genesis Emily mesh head was a gift from a friend, Sophia Harlow. The mesh heads and makeup are in a gacha machine at Kustom 9 at only L$99 per play. This is an amazing price for a mesh head. I am also wearing Smokey Eyes makeup from the same gacha. Here is the gacha key link. I can’t say that I am crazy about this particular head on me. I have seen it look great on some others.

My very stunning eyes are another group gift from IKON. He really treats his group right! These are the new Triumph eyes in Armor, and they are free to his group in the main store. If you want to get other colors they can be found at this round of Shiny Shabby. During my shopping excursion I also picked up a new ponytails hair style from Truth. In the second picture I am wearing the wind blown look from Exile (blogged here).

What Happens to Balloons That Get Loose?

Angel with Balloons

Have you ever wondered what happens to all of the balloons that get loose from the hands of children? Or maybe the balloons were released to express love at a wedding or funeral. In my world the angels are catching the balloons and playing with them. They’re flying up high in the sky with them. I can imagine that some might be breathing in the helium and singing in funny high voices. And then some of the other angels are decorating the skies like we do at our parties.

The soft puffy clouds are from Kirin’s latest pose set. There are 10 clouds with poses plus extra optional clouds. Each pose comes with it’s own balloons to hold if you want to add that into your fun. My silver wings wings came from ANE. The wings are available in Gold or Silver, and middle or high wing placement. Middle is with the wings straight out and high is shown in my picture.

Angel on a Cloud

I absolutely love this gorgeous Carrington dress from Tres Blah. Included are Maitreya, Slink, and default avatar fits. The high collar is adorned with a rose. The cuffs are from Junbug. They are so pretty that I had the hardest time deciding on a gemstone color. The wind in the skies gently blew my Exile Memory Bliss hair to the side. Ingenue made my heavenly Le Papillon heels with butterflies on top of the toes. They are the perfect addition to my exquisite outfit.

If I could find a souvenir, just to prove the world was here. And here is a red balloon, I think of you and let it go.” Nena – 99 Luft Balloons

How to Change Your Look from Day to Night

Day to Night

This is a quick way to change your look from day to night. One outfit will take you through your busy schedule. Accessories can change the look of an outfit tremendously. The Secret Store Nathalie Tutu Dress will be the main piece of fashion we will stick with all day. Here are two ways to wear this dress from day to night.

My day started out with ballet practice. I simply wore my hair loosely back. My ballerina tutu, as mentioned above, is from The Secret Store. This dress is made to fit Maitreya and Slink bodies or the standard avatar. No jewelry is needed for ballet practice. REIGN leg warmers and ballet slippers are all the additional accessories needed to complete this look. These particular leg warmers are hud driven to change the skin color, worn or clean look shoes, and shoe color to white, pink, or black. They are also made to fit Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Belleza bodies.

Ready for a night out on the town in a quick flash. Adding a statement Glam Affair Bubble necklace, Junbug Antique Cuffs, and a small REIGN rose wristlet makes my Nathalie Tutu Dress date ready. For a moment I contemplated wearing the sheer top that came with the dress. The leg warmers and slippers were exchanged for some gorgeous Ingenue Le Papillon Heels. These cute heels are made to fit Maitreya and Slink feet and are available in 12 colors. My long hair was let down and tousled around my shoulders.

My BoOgErS are Safe Now

Sunshine & Chevron

My BoOgErS are safe in the yard now that I have finally put up a gate at the beach house. In the package you also get a darker version of the same style. The main part of the gate is 4li and each fence extension is 1li. Windsong has this gate in several different themes on sale for The Neighborhood. There is a rustic barn theme and I also saw a white picket fence version. The sunshine & chevron is my favorite and perfect for my beach house.

To take this picture I used the Phoenix Firestorm viewer. Just click the Filters drop down button when you bring up the snapshot window. There you will find several different and wonderful filters. The Second Life official viewer also has filters. Look at each one when taking snapshots until you find one that works for your current picture. The only editing that was done to this picture was cropping and resizing.
