Meet Me By That Small Cafe

I hate Wednesday. They are quite possibly the most boring day of the week. It’s not the fresh new start of the week yet it also isn’t close enough to the weekend. The memory of last Sunday is too far away and the bridge to Friday night seems too long to cross. Hump day humbug day if you ask me. Still, wandering around the Second Life grid there’s plenty of happiness and joy to be found! Three of my favorite designers have all released brand new items.

First is LeLutka who’s recently released 4 new hairstyles in a range of brand new ‘dyes’ on a nifty little HUD. The hairstyle I’m wearing is the new Sheera which is available at their mainstore for free and comes with all 15 new color HUDs. Each HUD comes with 30 to 32 different color styles; Basic, Fades, Roots and Roots & Fades together. I think the ‘Range’ HUD is my favorite one, containing nearly every basic color plus all the fade and root combinations. If you haven’t done so yet, do take a trip to the LeLutka store and check out their new stuff because I promise it’s worth it! Now, second.. Glam Affair. My beloved Glam Affair. For 4 or 5 years I’ve been wearing nothing but Glam Affair and sure on occasion I switch to a different brand. To challenge myself or because I need something very specific but my day-to-day look always revolves around my gazillion Glam Affair skins. For this month’s Kustom 9, Glam Affair has released their new skin ‘Alice’ and she’s a beauty. The skin comes in 3 tones; Asia, Jamaica and Polar with 6 makeups, 7 eyebrow colors and 5 eyebrow shapes. On top of that, Alice has some gorgeous freckles sprinkled lightly across the face turning her into a unique stunner. And third is IKON. I already briefly posted about his new eyes in my previous blog but by now, all 50 different eye colors have been released so I rushed back to the mainstore to pick up 2 more.. for now anyways. Usually I end up with at least 10 different shades so we’ll see how far I get. The detail that goes into the very art of the eyes, combined with the elaborate HUD, make these my go-to eyes for pretty much any look. ❤ Now, location wise I spent quite some time TP’ing around the grid and exploring before I landed on Blithe. After a stroll around this gorgeous sim, I landed at a small coffee shop called ‘The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse’ which felt like the perfect setting for today’s blog photos. All in all, Blithe is a sim that’s genuinely worth checking out whether you’re into photography or just enjoy relaxing in a beautiful scenery.

Ready for Abduction

“You’re from a whole other world
a different dimension
You open my eyes
and I’m ready to go lead me into the light”

A collaboration with the ingenious Brennan from The Saints of Fashionation featuring items from Kustom9, Collabor88 and this amazing store called Shu Mesh. I’ve been to Shu Mesh in the past and I can honestly say it’s one of the best stores on the grid for high quality mesh sci-fi and cyber armor and accessories. Their items are mind blowing and if you’re feeling even the tiniest spark of curiosity, you need to go and check out their in-world store. As for Collabor88, keep in mind that this month’s round is almost over so if you haven’t been yet you might want to hurry!
