Today’s Faves – Hot To Trot

I read with interest, a blog post from one of my favourite Second Life bloggers, Strawberry Singh. She was blogging the release of a new Bento riding horse by Water Horse, and you can read all about it here. I was enthralled! The horse moved so perfectly, and can be purchased in either an English saddle version, or a Western saddle version. Textures can be changed via a HUD, so you can customise the various parts of the body, main, tail, eyes, and saddle, to get the horse of your dreams. I have to give a very big thank you to Strawberry’s blog post, because in it, she wrote that if you join the WH Group you can get a 10% discount off the cost of the horses! That was music to my ears, and I am so happy I read that before I bought my horse!

I knew exactly what colour my horse would be, what name he would have, and I also had a very clear idea of what I wanted to wear. So first, I went shopping for an outfit, flat boots were my first priority, and I found a fabulous pair by COCO, that also included the white pants, perfect! I also found COCO made an equestrian jacket too, so I bought that. They both looked great together. I couldn’t find the sort of riding hat I wanted, but decided to go a little retro with a cute little riding top hat from TVC. It was a Halloween themed hat I bought many years ago, but is now getting a new lease of life! I teamed the hat with a cute updo hair I bought from [elikatira] in their recent cut price sale.

The horse came with a starter textures box, and this was one of the selections I chose.

Today’s Faves – .Shi And Me

I saw this hair by .Shi and just had to have it! I have several of their hairs, and featured a few in my post .Shi.

There are three ways to wear it, version one has a front braid with optional chain, and covers almost half of the face.

Version two also has the front braid with optional chain, but this version shows more of the face, and highlights the delicate strands of hair woven into the braid.

Version three has no front braid and looks very stylish. Of course, there are several colour options to choose from, I couldn’t resist the amazing colours on the Ecaille-Metallic pack. There are five different colour options on the HUD. This blue green ombre is my personal fave.

I teamed the hair with a gorgeous eyeshadow from Arte in a very similar shade, and I did my own tint on a Pink Fuel lipstick.

Today’s Faves – Cute Casuals

I love this cute jacket and shorts combo I put together. The jacket comes with the T-shirt top and several textures options, available from ArisAris. Both the jacket and the T-shirt have a hide function, so they can both be worn separately.

I teamed the jacket with a cute pair of ripped shorts from Addams, and some boots from BlueBerry.

Today’s Faves – Red And Black

I took a little boo around the Truth or Dare Event and found this amazing little red and black dress for a bargain price of only 50$L! I also found a great gacha item, the De’Leashous Choker by !IT! I was lucky to get a red coloured one at first play, and that was a perfect match for the dress.

I added some arm straps by katatOnik and gorgeous tassel boots from Hilly Haalan.The hair is an old favourite of mine, by Action Inkubator. Their hairs come with fantastic colour HUDs, and I chose a red and black ombre.

I took a stroll around The Gates of Melancholy sim, which has lovely terrain, and buildings to explore. I always seem to find something different each time I go there.

Today’s Faves – Sleep With Me

ingsThis is such a cute little set I just had to share it with you! It is by Eyelure, and is called Sleep With Me Set – Lavendar [sic]It comprises the top, shorts and an eyemask, not shown.

020617 Sleep with me_007T.png

I fell in love with it, well, ok, mainly because it included a TMP size, and shorts don’t always fit well if they are not for TMP. I teamed it here with a few of my recent gacha items. Firstly, the gorgeous hair is another one by Doe, you can see my other Doe styles here. This one is available in two versions, a long and a short ponytail. This is the shorter one, in pastels. I love the little tiny heart lights that come with it, just right for St.Valentine’s Day! The lights come with a colour HUD, like the hair, so I decided to go with a blue and lavender version to match the hair and outfit. Continue reading

Pretty In Pink

I couldn’t resist showing you another texture for the cute little dress by Hilly Haalan featured on my post Birthday Tea! I think this version is my favourite, smothered in pink and red kisses!

Addicted to Doe!

I have to confess I am utterly addicted to Doe Hairs! My first one was bought around Christmas, it is called Twinkle, and I featured it on my last Today’s Faves post. I am now pleased to say that I have several of their styles, and love them all. They have an amazing way of making one hairstyle look totally different with the use of their many amazing colour HUDs. You could buy a brown pack, and go for a sophisticated look, or, change it up, and use a colourful pack to make a fun two tone look.

They seem to sell them mostly via a gacha system, so you can take pot luck, or, go check out Tuppi’s Treasures on the Marketplace, and buy your favourite colour choice. The Marketplace is also likely to be the only place you can buy some of the styles, if the event they were featured at has now finished.

Doe Set One

I love this Twinkle (twotone) Pastel version, complete with the adorable bun lights. The lights can be worn or not, as seen in my Twinkle Twinkle post. I had not realised that there was a HUD for the lights (accessories) until I took the photos for this post! Each side of the lights can be changed to one of several different options, with glow on/off. You can have static lights or blinking lights. Just adorable!

Sombr V2 is shown in the Essentials Rare option. V2 has the hair clips and coloured strands in the style, which can be changed in the accessories colour HUD. I wore a pinky version in this Time For A Workout? post.

 Jink (twotone) Gingers, and Lovestruck (solid) Candy Rare, are styles with bunches, one with bangs, one with a side parting. Jink is a two tone, so each side can be coloured separately. Lovestruck Candy is the solid pack, so all the hair changes as one.

Twinkle Twinkle

Today’s Faves are actually three faves, or more, if I include the make up too!

010817 Twinkle_009T.png

I have been wearing this Sweater Dress style for a while now, as I wore a similar style as my Christmas outfit in several pictures, featured in my Christmas post here. This version is by ArisAris,  I love the detail they put into all of their textures. It comes with 8 textures for the sweater and 8 textures for the shirt. The shirt has Hide/Show feature. The amazing boots are by Hilly Haalan, and I confess to buying most of her designs if they are for TMP. The boots have several areas to customise with the textures HUD.

Today’s Faves – Glitter!

I am having a fun time with new make up right now, and this is one of my faves. The lashes are from a set by Shiny Stuffs called Glitter Glam. It is a palette of seven Glitter Eyeshadows, ten Glitter Lipsticks, and seven Glitter Lashes,the bottom lashes are plain black. The multi coloured, blue, aqua and pink, lashes are my current faves. I love the multicolored look, and they were the perfect match for the new eyeshadow set from SlackGirl called Augusta. This set comes in eight different colourways, all of them are equally stunning. I have used another of Shiny Stuffs sets for the lips, I chose a bright pink from their Ethereal Romance collection.

You can see more in depth coverage of these collections on my Make Up post – All That Glitters and Jewel Colours here.

Today’s Faves – The Perfect Dress and Boots

This dress is just superb in every way! I love the casual simplicity and elegance of it. It is by Just Because, and does not come with a HUD, so you have to pick your favourite colour and go with it. I love this neutral tone and deliberately chose it to go with one of the many colours that these amazing boots have on their textures HUD. I wear a TMP mesh body, so when I do find things to fit, be it footwear or clothing, I am doubly thrilled. Clothing is a little easier to adjust to fit, but there are precious few good quality thigh boots made for TMP. This pair by Hilly Haalan are just totally divine! They come with 30 different textures, so you are bound to find a colour to go with lots of differing outfits. The texture, the look, the fit… sheer perfection. They are now my all time fave pair of boots.
