Island Fever

Island Fever

The Pose Fair is one of my favorite events of the year and I’m glad Hottie Cooterati put it on this year. The most interesting part is discovering new (or at least new to me) pose makers and continuing my love of known ones.  I’ve been gravitating towards the props and group/couple poses. It gives me an excuse to spice up my blog a bit with other faces.  This super cute couples pose came from the Diesel Works booth. The Pose Fair runs until the 14th of April so if you haven’t made it yet, there’s still plenty of time.

When You're The Best of Friends

When you’re the best of friends,
Having so much fun together,
You’re not even aware you’re such a funny pair,
You’re the best of friends.

52 Weeks of Color – #38 Papaya Whip

I honestly have no idea what color the swatch was.  I’ve been back and forth with what color it actually is whether a pinkish or a peach-ish, but I went with what Wikipedia called it – a light orangey-peach color. I think I used this Grixdale dress last year for a color but it works for Papaya Whip too.

I do find things a bit more difficult this round. Most of these are colors completely foreign to me, but isn’t that part of the challenge? I wonder what next week will bring.

52 Weeks of Color – Russet & Feldgrau

Punching out two colors in one post since I’m a week behind. My RL tends to get super hectic this time of year.

Russet is so beautiful and perfect for the upcoming fall. I love that it ranges from deep reddish to more brownish. And Feldgrau…. well…….yeah.According to Wikipedia it’s a light grey-green, the same color as the German army’s field uniforms in WWI. I would never have guess that in a million years. The things you learn! I suppose that’s why it’s called a challenge right? You stretch your knowledge of history not just your color palette.

Be Free

The Vintage Fair is still going strong and there are still roughly two weeks left to shop. Such a relief to me since  money has been tight lately and I haven’t been able to SL shop much. (The horrors I know. lol.)

My top is from, Auxillary, the new brain child of Tyr Rozenblum & Crushed Clarity. In case you haven’t already heard, they’re merging their two brands together to create even more awesomeness. Yay! I’ve been a fan of Tyr’s creations ever since I discovered Grixdale 2 years ago.

And of course the darling pose from Baffle! is also available at the Vintage Fair. It really worked with this whole funky, flower child vibe I wanted for this picture.

Okay done gushing now. If you haven’t made it to Vintage Fair yet then go! If you have, go again! lol. There’s plenty more to discover!

52 Weeks of Color – #32 Jonquil

It’s crazy how far into the color challenge we are! The year is more than half over! *sniffles a little* I had to think about this week. Jonquil sounded vaguely familiar but I couldn’t place it. I never would have guessed it was a yellow until now.

I found this gorgeous new top from {Zaara} that’s partial mesh and the color is perfect for this week. Hoping now that we don’t have canary as a color. Eek. I’ m super excited for the purple next week. It’s actually a color that I’ve heard of! Hooray!

It Looks Like Rain

It’s a rather grey and dismal day here and it seemed to require or request that I blog something weather related. (Don’t ask. It’s one of those weird mood days.) I can hear the thunder rumbling off in the distance as I write this. One of those days that the apartment feels big and lonely.

I found this darling umbrella pose set from {what next} with both single and couples poses. I’m missing Therathe today, so I grabbed his avi to pose with me this afternoon.  And thanks to Cajsa, I found both this sim to take pics from her notecard, at and the fantastic rainy windlight for the cloudy skies to set the mood. I hope the rest of your day is lovely, no matter what the weather is in your part of the world.
