Back with a Smile

Back with a Smile
Kirin Poses is back after having to be away from Second Life for a few months. I have missed seeing Carolina Sautereau’s pictures on flickr. She has new pose sets at Kustom 9 and Summerfest 16.

My new hairstyle is from Truth Hair. I love that it is sexy and has attitude. The top and cute skirt are also new releases. These are from the ColdLogic brand Neve. Each top or skirt that you buy comes with 4 color options.

These shoes from ANE are just too adorable. Donuts! Ha! She made several cute color choices. There is even a watermelon combo that would match my nail polish, but I had to wear the donuts! These come in 14 color choices and 2 shoe options.  These are at Summerfest. If you don’t get in the first week just keep trying!

I was shopping at Kustom 9 to buy this adorable puppy. While there I picked up the summer rings from ieQED and the Glam Affair Miriam Logo mesh head applier.

My blog title is Back with a Smile. This is because Kirin is back, and also Kaelyn Alecto’s sim, It All Starts With a Smile, has reopened. This time the sim is decorated as a tropical paradise. Give it a visit. The sim is so relaxing and there are so many photographic spots.

Is this shirt wet or just made of thin material?

Is my shirt wet or just made of super thin material? Regardless of it being wet or thin it is sexy. Ever since I saw this shirt at the Mizu – A Rainy Story Event I knew that I wanted it. But I just kept putting it off. Then came Summerfest ’15 and I was done. I ran as quickly as I could to get the shirt that appears wet. Gabriel’s Limited MIZU wet shirt has a male and female version. At the time of this writing it can be found only at the MIZU event. I’m not sure if limited means it will only be sold at this event and never be sold at the main store. If so, you have until July 7th to get it. This shirt comes with a hud that allows you to adjust the transparency to 10, 20, or 30 percent. Of course it is made to look see through and wet since it is at a rainy themed event. I would have shown it to you with nothing underneath, but I want to keep my blog and pics pg. You can imagine how great and sexy that would be.

Time to Dry Off

Back to Summerfest ’15. So many great choices of bathing suits at this event. I ended up purchasing the Maitreya Caia One-piece in Coral simply because it was made for my Maitreya body and fit so perfectly. The colors of the braided straps can be changed by use of a hud. There are 15 different color combinations. While there are plenty of great looking shorts at this event, I really wanted a reason to buy the Tee*fy Anja Shorts in Cherries design at Collabor88. These are so super cute summery and remind me of shorts I wore as a teen.

Sunny Day

Now since I had a wet shirt and a bathing suit on I needed to complete my look. I googled “Second Life Wet Hair” and came up with this style from ARGRACE. The hair has water drops on the strands. It is a perfect wet look hair. Great for showers, swimming, or rainy pictures. Please forgive me if I have been living under a rock or on a platform for most of my Second Life. That is what creators end up doing. But I have never heard of ARGRACE before. I found several really nice hairstyles in this store. Several blown/laying/hanging hairstyles that are not your typical norm are in the main store. This store is definitely worth a visit.

A little shade

The shoes I wore when out of the water are from Ingenue. These are available in 12 summery colors. Betty Doyle has 3 sets of shoes at Summerfest. I’ll do a separate post on the other two. My Poses are from !bang and out of various pose packs.

Hope you’re having a great summer!!

Going to the Beach House with my Boogers

Summer Retreat

Hanging out at the new Dust Bunny summer retreat on this bright summer day. I love the feel of the sun on my skin. Warmth is a feeling that makes me more comfortable and at ease. The cold of winter is very difficult to deal with. Luckily in Second Life it can be whatever season we prefer at the moment.

I have just started decorating the Dust Bunny daisy shack with my new Arcade and Summerfest finds. The set will be complete with just a couple more things. The fresh strawberry water seems to be the hardest to find, but thanks to Annaluisa Bertolucci I have that now (thank you!!). lxlnoel of Dust Bunny creates these amazing sets for the Arcade. You can tell that her products are quite popular, as the extras from trying to get that rare item pile up at yardsales. From the Summerfest event I have Windsong’s wooden signs and snapshot surfboard. You add four of your own pictures to the front of the decorated board. Sitting and playing in the sand are the darling Boogers bears. These are some of my favorite bears so far.

Summer Retreat

My summery outfit is from ColdLogic. The mesh top and skirt are separate pieces. This is a super pretty and fun dress for the summer. The shoes are Carmen Wedges from Ingenue. I cannot get enough of Betty Doyle’s perfectly designed shoes. This gorgeous hair is from Exile, and I have kept the hibiscus attachment on from the Truth Damaris hair. My poses come from !bang, and are for The Conquest event. They were made to wear with a gown, but I like how they look here in this scene. The legs are positioned so they will not poke through your gown.

Hope you can come join us at the beach house soon!
