Chamomile to Soothe

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope this past week has been good to everyone. We had elections here in the US; I will admit I was very disheartened on Wednesday when I woke up to find the woman I voted for did not win. I shall try to remain upbeat, and we shall see what happens from here on out. Please be kind to others Tea Readers. And BE SAFE. On with this week's post.

Outfit: Zaara Nadira set in Turquoise @Collabor88, Hair: Lelutka Jasmine, Earrings and Necklace included with Jasmine Hair, Arm Chains and Anklets: Zaara Raksha in Gold, Toe Rings: Real Evil Industries Toe Rings (former exclusive from Epiphany), Belly Tattoo: Mon Cheri release from June's Arcade, Bindi: Truth Kira Bindi (former exclusive from Epiphany), Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: IKON Charm and FATElashes, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth, Maitreya Mesh Body Lara

Since part of this week was upsetting for me, I decided some retail therapy was needed. Good thing Collabor88 opened on Tuesday! I was very happy about Zaara's new release at Collabor88 this month. It is a silks outfit, and I just LOVE it. The harem pants are sheer, but not so sheer it defeats the purpose of a pant. I adore the work of the top, with the chains dangling off to the side--it adds a bit of delicateness to such a sensual outfit. And of course I had to purchase the fatpack when I saw it. The color packs offered separately come with silver and gold options for the metals. And there is also a separate belt for purchase which comes with gold, silver, dark gold, and dark silver. LOTS of options and combinations for these. The fatpack is 4,888L$ which is a lot but for such a detailed and varied outfit, for me it is well worth the cost. I can see myself wearing these for a long time and pairing all the different colors together.

Dress: Foxes Dip Dress @Collabor88, Hair: Lelutka NV0002, Ring: Ariskea Poetric Women Wedding Ring, Bracelet: CAE Engraved Bracelet Sister, Shoes: N-Core KATE Glitter for Maitreya, Necklace: Yummy Talisman Charms Protection, Skin: Glam Affair Katra Ballerina, Eyes: IKON Charm and FATElashes, Maitreya Mesh Body Lara, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth

I liked a few of the other items offered by the creators, but as you know the Zaara release was my favorite. I highly doubt there will be something Zaara Kohime creates which I will not like. Foxes has a lovely dress I thought was perfect for clubbing or just being sexy. Also The Secret Store has a fun Bodysuit which reminding me burlesque shows! Fun purchases for sure!!!

This is where I leave you, Tea Readers. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe week. Don't let others bring you down. You are a bright star and deserve to shine!!! Check out Collabor88 whenever you get the chance. See all the pretty items from the other content creators, and try the Zaara demo. It will be well worth the try. Hugs and Smooches Tea Readers.

Trick or Tea?

Happy Sunday Tea Readers! I hope everyone has had an awesome week. I know this week has gone by super fast for me. Work has been good, my family is doing well, and in Second Life the Epiphany Gacha opened on Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Dress: Foxes Dead Cute Dress @Epiphany, Boa: Zenith Shoulder Faux Fur, Boots: Reign Patent Mishi Boots, Hair: Tableau Vivant Lenor, Pet: Foxes Dead Cute Skelecat, Earrings: MaxiGossamer Angelica's Ankh of Power, Necklace: Random Matter Daphne, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: IKON Charm and FATElashes, Maitreya Lara Mesh Body

There were three gachas I had to play at Epiphany. I really liked the Foxes gacha, which had these cute skelecat familiars. There are some nice corsets and dresses in the gacha, as well as other spooky familiars--but for me those skelecat familiars were the cutest. I also like the Fawny gacha rare of this cool bodysuit dress with a sheer skirt. I am really liking this sheer skirt fad. There is also a cute three-eyed cat holdable pet.

Dress: Fawny Coven Bodysuit and Skirt @Epiphany, Pet: Fawny Coven Cat for Hand @Epiphany, Boots: Empire Xylobium @in Luxebox for October, Bracelets: CAE Engraved Sisters and Mantra Peace, Hair Tableau Vivant Wicca, Necklaces: Yummy Hamsa, Shining Crystal, Crystal Choker, Rings: Izzie's Spring Midi Rings, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: IKON Charm and FATElashes, Ears: Mandala Season 5 Steking

Jian also has these cute Inu-Shiba pets. The rares are dressed up in costumes, the commons range from regular dogs to trick-or-treaters. They also go from companions to wandering pets. I was lucky and got the rare Prince Doggo. He is so adorable!  

Outfit: Blueberry Secret Dress, Hat, and Panties @Epiphany, Boots: Reign Patent Mishi Boots, Necklaces: Yummy Hamsa, Shining Crystal, and Crystal Choker, Hair: Spellbound Malice, Bracelets: CAE engraved sister bracelet and Mantra Bracelet, Rings: Izzie's Spring Midi Rings, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: IKON Charm and FATElashes, Maitreya Lara Mesh Body, Pet: Jian Hallow-Inu Prince Doggo Rare @Epiphany

With the Epiphany, you can trade in your extras for Epiphany points and then you can use the points to "buy" exclusive items you can only get for this round. Once the round is over, the exclusive items are gone forever. The only exclusive item I really wanted was the Day of the Dead applier for the Catwa mesh heads by Glam Affair. And Tea Readers, you know I love Day of the Dead!!! I have my applier paired with the Blueberry gacha items, which is a sexy witch outfit (also available at Epiphany). 

Full Outfit: Blueberry Secret (includes armlets, boots, dress, and broom) @Epiphany, Head: Catwa Nicki Static including eyes, Applier for head: Glam Affair Day of the Dead @Epiphany Exclusive, Hair: Tableau Vivant Longfall, Maitreya Lara Mesh Body

When Epiphany opened last week, it was really crowded, and I do know they were having some issues with lag. It should be better now, but below I am including the off-sim shopping landmark in case the main sim is full. I hope everyone has fun shopping, and remember to plan ahead. Check out the Epiphany Guide on their website, and look at Seraphim. Happy Shopping! Hugs and Smooches~

Let's Drink Cider by the Fire~

Happy Sunday Tea Readers!! Back again for a new post. I hope everyone has enjoyed the start of autumn! Lots of fun outdoor activities going on where I live.. I am going to share my favorite buy from Collabor88 this month!

This month's round for Collabor88 is "Echoes of Autumn". Now, some of the items really fit the theme, and some items don't really fit, in my opinion. But I want to share my Favorite buy from this month's round. It is by Zaara, of course, and it is blouse and skirt set which seems very gypsy to me. Very flowing. I bought the fatpacks, because that is how I roll with most of Zaara's items. And the skirts come 2 different options-a solid option and a patterned/patched option. I like the pattern option because it seems more organic and more personalized. There is a belt you can buy to go with your skirt, and it comes in many color options. The items are fit for the Maitreya Mesh Body, so demo if you want to see if it will fit your body, it isn't Maitreya...or even if you have Maitreya, I always say Demo Demo Demo.

Outfit: Zaara Anisha Ruffle Blouse and Ziya Tiered Skirt with Boho wrap belt @Collabor88, Bangles: Izzie's Nidhi Bangles, Earrings: Zaara Sarika Feather Earrings, Arm Chains: Zaara Raksha, Nosering: Zaara Ayanna, Hair: Exile Flickering Light @Collabor88, Eyes: IKON Charm eyes and FATElashes, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth, Maitreya Mesh Body Lara

The event has other cute items, but the Zaara outfit is my favorite by far. ISON has a cute dress with a sheer cape, which comes with a static and animated option. Pixicat has these really awesome leggings that have a cosmic star animation (You know I had to buy those). And Erratic has a cute boyfriend's shirt for the ladies (Maitreya fit only). Feel free to check out the catalog on Collabor88's site, or you can check out Seraphim's gallery (which also includes price).

Collabor88 opened last Saturday, so it should be way easier to get into now. Check the catalog, make a list, check over the list, teleport over and buy all the pretties! I hope you have a great Sunday Tea Readers! Hugs and Smooches~
