It’s hot outside, and not in a good way. Don’t get me wrong, I like Summer, or I liked Summer back in the day. I think it was a Wednesday. Anyway, it’s hot and humid, and when things get hot and humid, the only thing you can do is wear as little as possible.
Luckily, BOOM has that covered.

It is the last day of the Fashion for Life event, so if there are any last minute items you want to pick up, now is the time to do it.
I picked up a bunch of stuff this year, and have littered my Flickr with pictures of my finds.
Some are exclusives like the Purple Moon Marilyn gown in burgundy, the Zaara dress below, and the Poetic Colors eyes (they are so beautiful) – and others are like this dress fromBOOM which is a standard, but with proceeds going toward a great cause – and one very close to my heart.
Luckily, while Fashion for Life is ending today, the Relay for Life season does not end for a while – so there is still plenty of time to contribute.

Long day at work, fantastic traditional dinner and now I’m more than ready for some tea to finish off St. Patrick’s Day.
Still, it’s hard to work up the energy to actually get moving.
No reason to be running around when I can’t even remember where I left my darn teapot.
Can you tell I have tea on the brain? I want tea!!!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Did you really think that I would let an opportunity to show off awesome skins go by unnoticed? Yeah, right.
Aikea Rieko of the Plastik has four new Elven skintones and five Soul Ink face tattoos available for Valentine’s Day. Since she’s awesome, you can usually get these things after the holiday as well – for a little while.
Pink Fuel has some skins at 50% off until midnight SLT on Valentine’s Day (an example from Skye and Ember are below), and Apple May Designs has this Katey Valentine’s Skin for free until Valentine’s Day is over too!
More pics/larger sizes are available on my Flickr.
Styling Credits will be added soon – for now, they can be found on my Flickr. Gotta get some sleep – sorry!
Finally, I’m over being sick (mostly), have been able to get pictures with all of the clothing in focus (thank you SL), and actually liked the way they turned out. I can’t say that there hasn’t been much that has caught my fancy – I’ve done more than my fair share of shopping – but I’ve had the hardest time getting myself to put a whole look together and take pictures. I’ve started to feel guilty for not keeping up with Luna’s blogger challenge, and I wanted to get a bunch done at one time, which I did! (It’s the little things people.) However, instead of spamming you with huge pictures, I just want to show you some of the really really awesome things I found in the process of putting these looks together. And put the picspam nice and small at the bottom – because I can. 🙂
Three things I’ve found in catching up on the blogger challenge? Jewelry, Skins and Boots. Really, what more can a girl ask for? (Don’t answer that.)
I’ve never been much of a consumer of SL jewelry before. Absolutely, there have been some pieces that I just have to have and are amazing, but in general, it’s not one of my go-to shopping categories. Not a little part of that reason is that it’s not one of my real life addictions, so it’s not something I look for to “complete” an outfit. Shoes, on the other hand… are totally different, but that’s another story. Anyway, I put on the silver dress from Zaara, and it just needed something else. So, I searched… and searched… and came across so many things that somehow made their way into my inventory (budget, what budget?), and found the Logo bracelet and earrings, and the Mandala bracelet. Now, I just need to talk these designers into making me one to wear every day (pretty please?). A crazy close-up of these items is on my Flickr, just waiting to be viewed. The non-closeup just doesn’t do them justice.
The skin I first saw in a blogger preview pack from Aikea Rieko of the Plastik. I love her Lionheart skins, and I love her new Ataciara skins as well. Now, I’ve said before that she reads my mind, but this is starting to get scary. On the other hand, it’s also awesome (like 10,000,000 hot dogs awesome*), so I’ll stick with that. Anyway, she dropped her blogger pack on me and I promptly went out and bought a fatpack of my favorite tone, as well as all the elven tones. Why? Because they’re beautifully done and the makeups are amazing. The lips are a little bigger than her Lionheart skins, but they look great. I love that the Freckles come on a separate (tattoo) layer – and are tintable. Very cool (and fewer inventory items – yay!) I’ve used the skins in several of my pics, but you can see a freckled and non-freckled version in sienna, indigo and green.
As for the boots – well, I have a problem with shoes of all sorts, but boots are a special weakness. These leather boots by Mentine (in the silver and green pictures) are exactly what I’ve been looking for – for a long time. My favorite part? Other than everything – is that the fur can be turned off and on. Woo customization!
Of course, I won’t blog something if I don’t really like it, but these three things are new to me, so I wanted to mention them specifically.
All Caught Up (Here are some of the pics that haven’t previously been blogged:
