Summertime Boheme

On A Lark July 2015

Hello Readers!

I was sorting through my inventory in my never ending quest to clean/organize/lighten it, when I came across a head scarf made by my SL mom, Discovering Destiny (aka Lark) from On A Lark.  I really don’t wear head scarves enough, and I see why, finding a hair to go under them can be a real challenge. I am wearing the April Headscarf in Eggplant with a bangs attachment (JOPE57) and hairbase from Boon. I have my Lara body on and was excited to use one of my older tattoos from Letis Tattoo called Bohemian with the Omega System Kit trick to get it to apply to Lara. Once again I was pleased with the results. I love the new lipsticks from Deessess that go with my Alicia skin and I am wearing the L’adoree shade for light skins. La Boheme just seemed so fitting with this look so I am wearing Glamour Eyes: Cassiopeia Set 1 #5. Then their was the Banjara silver talisman necklace from Zaara which really helped make the look. It was fun to dress up the simple Madison romper from The Secret Store, it was a lovely canvas to begin with. The Elysion sim was ever the perfect backdrop, and my pose is one from the new set called Andrea by KaTink, now available at Sneak Peek.

Hello Readers!

I love the connections I have made in Second Life. Much like in real life, there are some friends you talk to every day and others that you don’t, but each relationship is different. It is like that for me and my SL mom, Discovering Destiny (aka Lark). She and I have been friends for almost as long as I have been in SL. We became close in role play and even though I have exited that world, she and I remain very close. It is a relationship I value very much.

Lark is the designer behind On A Lark and she makes amazing medieval style clothing. She and I had a lovely Skype chat today in which we spent most of it discussing our mutual enjoyment of the Outlander series that recently aired on the Starz channel. I wouldn’t have even heard about this series had it not been for another close role play friend, and I have enjoyed watching a wonderful show and being able to talk about it with some of my closest friends. Lark then told me all about the Claire dress she had made inspired by the show and I linked her to an image of Clarie’s wedding gown that I hope she will make! *hint hint*

My friends and I recently made over my sim to a wonderful beach theme. I enjoy getting off my pose stand and finding new places to sit and enjoy my lil corner of SL. I love dressing like I live at the beach and I thought this combination of On A Lark and Legal Insanity was perfect!

Summer’s End

Hello Readers!

Summertime cannot end soon enough for me.  I am sure there are a fair amount of you who love summer and based on where you might live in the world it could be very nice for you. For me however, summer is quite warm and very nearly uncomfortably so. I am never sad to see the summer come to an end, and I always enjoy the summertime thunderstorms we have had here lately. They signal a change in seasons is coming soon!

My SL mom (Discovering Destiny) makes all sorts of lovely things, so many I can’t blog them all!  When I saw these latest releases I just HAD to be sure I photographed them for you.

Last Day At the Beach

Hello Readers!

I am sad to say my summer break is quickly coming to an end.  After an exciting whirlwind of summer shows with Siren & SCALA’s Month of Games and the uniquely different Art in Hats, I am enjoying going through all the new fashion goodness with Opium’s upcoming Hunger Games Tribute as well as all the creativity and quality of the designers I blog for.

Today’s look was inspired by Datrip’s latest creation for Legal Insanity.  It was very appropriately a swimsuit and I knew my alter ego Sileena (who is so cute thanks to 7 Deadly S{k}ins) would look adorable in it in one of Izara’s new skin creations.  My blog post wouldn’t be complete without a lil KaTink and as always Marit and Maliah never fail with their backdrops and poses!

While part of me is sad all of this wondrous summer free time will come to an end next week, I look forward to the regularity a work schedule brings, as well as getting to work with my new class of students! I have been an educator for a number of years and the summertime is always something I look forward to for the chance to rest and recharge.

Hello Readers!

I am about to head out of town for a few days so I wanted to be sure to share one more thing with you before I go.  I would have liked to style it all up and stuff, but RL and SL commitments made me short on time so I will share the vendor image with you instead!

My SL mom is a BEAST when it comes to creating new items for her store On A Lark.  As a fashionista I am always looking for eye catching jewelry and when I saw this I had to put it on right away!

_OAL_ Goddess Cuffs FR

I am sure I am not the only one who LOVES an item that has a HUD where more options and combinations are available.  Lark never disappoints when it comes to this.  As you can see from the image above you have a fair amount of room to personalize this set to match whatever styling you had in mind. This is available now at the current round of the Fantasy Room.  Click here for your SLURL!

Thank you for reading and see you when I get back!
