I'll Take A Chai And A Pastry For My Happy Place

There is something about a quiet cafe, sitting at a quaint little table with a delicious pastry and a cup of chai tea. Probably your favorite book on hand and soft music coming from an old radio. Sari-Sari gives us a piece of this at The Arcade in their machine, Cafe Happy. The build and chalkboard ladder sign are the rares with other various bakery commons. There is still time left to visit The Arcade and it's nice and quiet now. 

I'll Take A Chai And A Pastry For My Happy Place 1

I helped round out the decor of the happiest cafe with other Arcade items from Consignment, Dust Bunny, Tarte and Half-Deer. Although the cafe is empty at the moment, it's just waiting for you to come in and place your order.

No One Is Too Old For Fairytales

ColdLogic had a super cute spring release today. Four strapless dresses in various textures and of course I went for one of the styles in pink! My hair is from Tableau Vivant at Collabor88 and I love the short sassy style. For the picture scene itself, I found myself exploring Storybrooke Gardens, a magical fairytale type garden above Baja Norte. It's very well done and my picture doesn't do it justice so please check it out.

No One Is Too Old For Fairytales

I finished off my look with a Glam Affair necklace, new eyes from Buzzeri at Uber and high heels from Glamistry. As always, the Glamistry heel come with a color change HUD so that you can change each part of the heel to your liking. Did I overdo it on the pink again? I'm a bit addicted I think.

Leaving TV Land

Only a week left of this round of The Arcade, so make sure you get everything you need. Like these adorable TV pugs from MishMish or some cute clutter items from Tres Blah and Second Spaces. My outfit is new from Tee*fy at N21, casual tank tops and high waisted leggings. The tank top and leggings come in different cuts in each standard size to make it easier to layer mesh. The carpet and sofa are from Cheeky Pea at FaMESHed. I'm not sure exactly when this round ends but you'll be able to find it at CP's mainstore whenever it does.

Transform Me: March We Love Roleplay

So I put together two looks using outfits from We <3 Roleplay and the new Glam Affair skins at Collabor88. The first look is a dress from Peqe and this ombre sparkly color reminded me of Ariel in The Little Mermaid when her father gives her legs to be with the human she loved. The little girl I nanny for actually pointed it out. So of course my avatar also had to be a redhead. The skin I'm wearing is Glam Affair's Alice Lovely Day from Collabor88. I really love how innocent and soft Alice is, perfect for a demure mermaid who finds herself human again. 

The Magic Of Joining Your World 

The second outfit is a simpler look with a dress from Dead Dollz. Someone felt I looked like little red riding hood, carrying my basket and now that is all I see. My skin is the other Glam Affair skin available at Collabor88, which is Amberley Lovely Day. The hair is something I found at the last Season's Story from a new store called Oleander. I love braids and the fact that it's a fishtail braid is pretty fun. Onto the credits!

Spring Frolic

Busy week here but you can tell spring is on its way. It's warming up, enough that most days you don't need a hat or mittens anymore and some days only a light jacket. This makes me so happy, I'm very much done with winter. Need your spring fix in SL? Look no further than The Arcade. I'm using items from various creator's machines for my spring scene including dust bunny, Half-Deer, Ispachi and tarte. The bed pictured is from Cheeky Pea at The Men's Department and comes in both PG and Adult versions. Happy weekend everyone!

Bohemian Daydream

Uber is all about boho right now and I'm in love with all of it. Tee*fy has out a super cute romper in a variety of colors that comes with a texture change HUD for the belt. Throw in coin jewelry from Izzie's and a loose french braid from Truth with optional flower or butterfly addons and you have a super fun but relaxed outfit, ready for spring. I took the photo in front of the Kalopsia Gipsy Shack, which has all these amazing details like wind chimes, pillows, semi-transparent curtains and a constellation rug.

Bohemian Daydream 

My skin is also from Uber, called Alice from Glam Affair. I'm really amazed by the Glam skins of late and this time I even went a tone darker than usual. I'm wearing Jamaica instead of America, which makes me think warm thoughts. The fun pose I'm using is from Infiniti at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival (which only runs until the 15th). The gacha is all about balloons and this pose comes with the holdable ones and the extra ones you see floating around, which are an attachment.

False Modesty

I fell in love with this dress from Dead Dollz at The Fantasy Collective. It really shouldn't be any surprise since the dress is only made up of a skirt, corset and shrug and therefore, I get to fully show off my breasts. I decided that I wanted to blog it with them covered though so that it was safe for work and I told my best friend Lucie about it and that I was calling it "False Modesty." She snort laughed and told me the title was perfect. This probably tells you way more about me than you wanted to know. Oops!

The location I found for this photo is just gorgeous. It's called "The Outer Garden" and has a very romantic and ethereal feel to it. When I landed, I found that the sim was full of couples in little hideaways. They must have been confused by the topless lady posing with her arms crossed strategically over her breasts! I prefer to shoot a photo on location if I can and go to Loverdag's photostream on Flickr for ideas whenever I need a place.
