Blue Butterflies, Blue Dreams

While I am loving the fashion and hair that I have been blogging the last several posts, don’t forget about the home & garden designers! [ keke ] has released “butterflies dancing” at the main store. These are recolours of the lovely set she did for Deco(c)rate last month. Now is your chance to grab them if you didn’t subscribe, or add to your collection if you did. The lovely flowers are part of her prize in the MadPea Summer Hunt. Please click the link to find out all about the hunt. I’m afraid I can’t help you more than that; MadPea hunts scare the bejezus out of me!

My hair is another from Hair Fair 2017, this time from tram. When I think of tram, I think of short cuts. This long style, though, has to be one of my favourites not only from Hair Fair, but also from this designer…ever. I do love when creators step out of their niche/comfort zone to bring something stunning to the grid. And my life!

Butterflies, dreams, and beautiful hair. *sighs with contentment*

Two Favourites, Squared

Every summer, I look forward to two events in Second Life: Hair Fair and Summerfest. And every year, I look out for two designers at those events.

I first discovered *ARGRACE* at Hair Fair a few years ago and it has become a favourite hair brand for me. rika Oyen follows a theme for her offerings for Hair Fair. She has done hats previously (baseball caps, cowboy hats) and this year, it is towels (two versions) and messy hair. The texturing on the towels is so perfect I want to wrap my own hair in one. And the hair itself is just the right amount of wisps and tousled locks to believe you have just stepped out of the shower, or the ocean. And don’t forget her other creations: bedhead extraordinaire and shampoo. I will try to get posts with those later, but don’t wait for me – go check them out yourself.

The first item I ever bought at Summerfest was a ruffled one-piece bathing suit from Valentina E. Last year, it was a ruffled bikini. And this year, another one. I simply love the bold patterns and unflinching style. Valentina E. is equal parts haute couture and smouldering sensuality. This bikini ticks all the boxes of becoming a classic. I can’t wait to see what she does next!

Honourable mention must go to Izzie’s, also at Summerfest. She is the mistress of the appliers, and the water droplets she features this year are the proof. With appliers for multiple bodies and heads, plus Omega, different skin tones with varying levels of shine, I may have to amend my title:

Three favourites, cubed.

*Just BECAUSE* · iheartslfeed

I Just Don’t Know

I just don’t know why some things happen. Whether they occur for a reason or if it is just random. Does karma exist? Do good things happen in threes? Does a black cloud hang over my head?

No details – sorry. I’m just in a philosophical state of mind and you are being subjected to my minor ramblings. Again, sorry. I know you come here for the lowdown on what’s new on the grid.

What’s new, in this case, is the Isa Bodysuit from JustBECAUSE. It is a new main store release and it is simply stunning. It comes in either a sheer or solid version with a delicate floral applique. I am wearing the sheer version in one of the ombre tones, which is exclusive to the fatpack. It clings in all the right places and it is worth splashing out on the full set; this is a versatile piece that can be worn alone or with a skirt, shorts or pants with careful layering.

Why are you still here? Why aren’t you out shopping? *shakes head* I just don’t know.

Pretty stuff I’m showing off:
