6 Ways to BE the Summer Heat in Second Life

Summer in Second Life can be the hottest fashion season. You want to be hot whether you wear a bikini, one piece, or a new outfit. Since there isn’t an actual feeling of heat in here we have to make it hot. A cool temperature themed sim like Black Kite can become instantly hot. I’m sure there are more than 6 ways to BE the summer heat in Second Life. But these can get you started.

6 Ways to BE the Summer Heat

  1. Strike a pose. You can find numerous hot poses anywhere. Be sassy!
  2. Wear Strappy Shoes. It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing high heels, wedges, or sandals. Show some non-default feet and those applied pedicured toes. Don’t forget an ankle lock!
  3. Short shorts. Add cherries for fun.
  4. Show some midriff. This is summer after all. Sheer or midriff baring tops are sweltering.
  5. Sexy hair – want to run your fingers through it hair.
  6. A great body. Several designers create beautiful bodies now. There is no reason to have that odd angled elbow or wrist.

What Happens When Lightning Strikes

When Lightning Strikes

I recently found out about a new place to visit and take pictures. I was looking for some place to capture my latest hair style, clothes, and shoes, and so I decided to take a look. The sim is Ironwood Hills, and it is a rainy post apocalyptic city. You will find an old amusement park, cemetery, and small city area. I took a lot of pictures before I could get this one. The lightning flashes were hard to time. But in the end it was totally worth it. I love how the picture came out. Afterwards I was lucky to teleport back to my place and was happy that I was out of the rain. Shades needed for this bright smile! The poses used in these pictures are from PRETENSE. This set of 5 poses comes with sunglasses to hold, but you can surely use them holding other things or nothing at all. They look great for showing off bracelets and rings in pictures.

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!

Toscana Afternoon

Anytime is a good time for tea and dessert. I am loving the 8f8 Toscana set from The Arcade. Erratic’s An English Afternoon tea set goes perfectly with it. I added little touches from dust bunny, anc, BoOgErS, and Zaara that compliment the sets. Put on your white gloves and join me for a spot of tea.

Ready for Spring

Ready for Spring

I am so ready for Spring to come back. The soft colors of this season make me happy. Like the colors on this girly shabby chic bed from windsong. You can get this from The House Hunt starting February 1st. It went well with my new texture change shades from Mudhoney, and blue ruffle pouf from PILOT. On the desk are some cute kawaii items from windsong that will be at The Woodlands. Also on the desk is Atelier Kreslo: hyasynth’s Candy – Cookie Bird from the Atelier Kreslo Farewell Bake Sale. So many cute things to pick up at the bake sale.
