Turkish Tea by the Sea

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope this week has been fun and exciting for you all! Man, the summer just really officially started and I feel like I am running a mile a minute. But I would rather keep busy then have nothing going on. On with this week's post~

Bikini: Glam Affair Angelina @Summerfest, Hair: NEW Truth Bronwyn, Skin: Glam Affair Yolandi @Summerfest, Eyes: Redgrave Catgreen and Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet, Whatever Fang Teeth

So last year, I went to an event called The Summerfest, and I don't know if it was the first event or if it has been an established annual event. This year when it opened I was quite excited because I enjoy summer/nautical things. When I first went last year it was super easy to get in and there was no lag, but when I went the event had already been open a while. This time I went opening day and there was a lot of lag. Despite the lag the set up is fun and so beachy--it made me want to lay out or play in a pool. There are lots of home items, accessories, and clothing at this event. I only bought outfits when I went the first time because I was a woman on a mission. The lag was horrible so I had to use area search to find the items I saw listed on Seraphim. I plan on going back to look at home items for my new place since it is a beach set up.

There are only a few outfits I bought, I bought two dresses by Pixicat which come with a hud to do a solid color or a tropical print (I bought the white dresses because with and without the print it looks gorgeous). I also bought a swimsuit/cover/hat set by Valentina. The kimono overlay/cover is pretty, but kind of "thick" looking... Like it reminds me of a thick robe, not really a light swimsuit cover. Overall though, it is a fun relaxing look with the hat included (or you can buy each piece separately). Glam Affair also has a bikini out--it is very simple and I like the cut. There are a lot of swimsuits/ bikinis and such at the event, so if you don't have one.......You need to get one.

Now, time for me to do an embarrassing admission.... I bought a gorgeous one piece swimsuit and coverall by Maitreya. The swimsuit is very sexy and classy, and the cover-up comes with two options (see through and solid).You want to know the embarrassing part...... The set is specifically for the Maitreya Mesh Body; it does not work with the system body. So guess who has to buy the body to wear the outfit? This girl~ I knew I would have to break down and buy a body. This just gives me extra ammunition to buy one. I have The Mesh Project's free mesh body for nude shoots, but I think I will now definitely have to break down and buy Maitreya's body.

Okay, so Shiny Shabby also opened on Saturday and I didn't end up buying a lot from the event. I only bought an outfit by GizzA. It is a tank-top and trouser set that looks very relaxed and almost loungey. I saw the preview on Facebook for it, and I ended up getting the white set (it is my favorite color). It pairs really well with some color, so I have a Labradorite ring, some Aquamarine jewelry from Zaara, and some blue high heels with it. It is very subtle and I think it adds a lot of sophistication for a lounge set.

Outfit: GizzA Vicky Tank and Trouser @ShinyShabby, Shoes: Eudora Darya Wedges, Ring: Aphorism Bijou , Jewelry: Zaara Atiriya Stone set, Hair: NEW Truth Lyric, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: Redgrave Catgreen and Natural6 Lashes, Slink hands and Feet

Some other events opened up over the weekend and this past week, but I will go into more depth next week...I have to keep you interested somehow~ I hope you all have a great week and enjoy your Sunday my lovely Tea Readers. Go have a cuppa.

Your Dad's Best Long Island Ice Tea!

Happy Sunday! Father's Day is today in the United States, and I will be spending the day with my family and pestering my father (my favorite thing to do). I haven't really been shopping too much this week. I recently rented a place, in Second Life, with Earth and Kalia (my real life twin and my soul sister). I have been decorating, landscaping, and gardening like crazy for our new place--but I have gone to Kustom9 and The Kawaii Project.

Dress: Zenith Rosette Dress @Kustom9, Necklace: Yummy Circle Charm Lotus Bloom @Uber, Ring: Aisling The Good Wife, Hair: Olive Glitch @The Kawaii Project, Shoes: Ingenue Louise, Bracelet: Noodles Initial Bracelets, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: Redgrave Catgreen and Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet, Whatever Fang Teeth

Kustom9 and The Kawaii Project opened on Monday. The big thing for me at both events were hairs. I bought a hair by Tableau Vivant and Due at Kustom 9, and at The Kawaii Project I bought one of the hair's by Olive. All three styles are long, and very ready for summer. The only outfit I bought was by Zenith located at Kustom9. It was a gacha, and it is a cute summer dress that is about knee length. There are also come cute handbags in the gacha. I didn't want any of the rare side body handbags, but the common handbags are cute and come with a built in scarf. It's perfect for the casual summer outing on the boardwalk.

Dress: Zenith Rosette Dress @Kustom9,  Handbag: Zenith Rattan Bag with Scarf @Kustom9, Necklace: Yummy Circle Charm Lotus Bloom @Uber, Ring: Aisling The Good Wife, Hair Tableau Vivant Leste @Kustom9, Shoes: Ingenue Louise, Bracelet: Noodles Initial Bracelets, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: Redgrave Catgreen and Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet, Whatever Fang Teeth

I know this week's post is very short, but the Liaison Collaborative is taking a summer hiatus and won't be back for three months. Yet, I have been busy getting my new little home set up. I plan on taking a few blog photos there so everyone can see parts of it! Happy Father's day to all you Dads out there. If you aren't a father, call your dad or someone who you love and appreciate for all the things they have done for you. Thank them for being amazing. Hugs and Smooches everyone~

Let's Spike the Fruity Punch!

Yay for Sundays! I am so glad today is Sunday. Today is my only day off this week (and this week has been exhausting), so I am going to make the most of it. Let's talk about Collabor88 shall we.

I am wearing: Shorts: Nylon Outfitters Pineapple Denim @Collabor88, Shirt: Addams Epiphany Top @Collabor88, Hair: Exile Full of Grace @Collabor88, Glasses: Yummy Vice Sunglasses, Ring: Pineapple Ring @Collabor88, Shoes: Nadya Sandals, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Slink Hands and Feet
Earth is wearing: Addams Epiphany Short and Top @Collabor88, Hair: Truth Bexley, Sunglasses: Reckless Luna, Bracelets: {anc} ThornCombiBangle, Shoes: Ingenue Esmee Sandals @Collabor88, Necklace: CAE Timey Wimey Things, Ring: CAE Belle, Earrings: Sitara, Tattoo: DL Black Dragon, Slink Hands and Feet

Collabor88 opened on Monday with the theme Summer Punch. I adore all the pineapple prints at the event! Secret time...I love pineapple print. To me it looks classy and reminds me of the Daughters of the American Revolution, because the pineapple is one of the symbols(I know this because my family is in the DAR). I really like the pineapple shorts by Nylon Outfitters--they are really cute, but it was hard for me to pair them with a shirt at first. At the event there are shorts a plenty, and a few bikinis. Earth told me over the weekend she didn't have any mesh She really needed a new bikini...bad. On Monday when she went to Collabor88 she bought a bikini by Baiastice in the black floral print. She looks good in it, and it fits really well. I am just glad she is finally catching up with some of us in regards to mesh staples.

What I am wearing: Dress: ISON Wrap Side Dress @Collabor88, Hair: NEW TRUTH Lucrecia, Necklace: Aphorism Bijou @ShinyShabby, Ring: Yummy Pineapple @Collabor88, Shoes: Essenz Tripoli, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: Redgrave Catgreen and Natural Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet and Whatever Fang Teeth
What Earth is wearing: Dress ISON Wrap Dress @Collabor88, Shoes: Hucci Upland Wedge @Collabor88, Hair: Truth Junia, Necklace: CAE Timey Whimey Things, Ring: Anara's Earth Ring and CAE Belle, Earrings: Earthstones Sitara, Bracelets: {anc} ThornCombiBandle, Tattoo: DL Black Dragon, Slink Hands and Feet

Earth actually ended up spending more than I did at the event, and she bought a ton more outfits! She told me Monday night when I got home from work she had been four times. I asked her to pose with me for this week's post. We both bought these dresses by ISON. They are simple and they look so light and flowy. I love summer dresses; well, I love dresses period. I bought the white/blue dress because of the floral print on the bottom(of course). Turns out the dress looks really good with this new hair by Truth(the flowers add so much). There are some fun shorts by Addams at the event. They are rather expensive at 388L$ for one pair, but it comes with a hud to change the pocket and belt texture and belt buckle. Earth also bought a skirt and crop-top combo from Fashionably Dead as well. Very cute and very Summer fun. There are some hairs at Exile also at the event, but Earth and I only bought the updo.

Outfit: Tee*fy Anja Shorts and Kelly Tank Top @Collabor88, Hair: NEW TRUTH Benita, Necklace: Yummy Circle Charm  Bindi @Uber, Nose Ring: Yummy Diamond Flower Nose Ring, Ring: Yummy Pineapple @Collabor88, Shoes: [monso] My Flower Sandal @Uber, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: Redgrave Catgreen and Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet

One of my favorite shirt/short combos is by Tee*fy and this is why--one of the shirt options is white and black stripped and it reminds me of Coco Chanel. Coco used to wear these black stripped shirts and she is my fashion inspiration. To me she is the epitome of sophistication and class. She had said at one point before she would ever leave her home she would take off one piece of jewelry. So what do I do before I ever leave my apartment? Take off one piece of jewelry. (Side note: All us ladies need to give thanks to her for the Little Black Dress, it started with her.) When I saw the tank top with the stripes I had to buy it, I just had to.

What I am wearing: Bikini: The Secret Store Midkini @Collabor88, Hair Elua Iola2, Skin: Glam Affair SummerV3 @Collabor88, Eyes: Redgrave Catgreen and Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet
What Earth is wearing: Bikini: Baiastice Jade @Collabor88, Ring: Anara's Earth and CAE Belle, Hair: Truth Posy, Bracelets: {anc} TornCombiBangle, Tattoo: DL Black Dragon, Slink Hands and Feet

Big thank you to Earth for posing with me for this week's post! And big round of applause for her joining us in the mesh bikini world! I know it seems silly, but I was way too shocked when she said she didn't have a mesh bikini. She had told me not too long ago she also had no mesh underwear...which we then fixed immediately because I don't care who you are, you have to have some mesh panties. Let's try to keep up in this mesh world my lovelies. Hugs and Smooches my Tea Readers~



Truth Hair:
             I though I would include the landmark for Truth since I am wearing two of the newer hairs.

Feni for Summer Parties

Yay for Sundays! This week has been long and fun; I am finally ready to start enjoying my Summer. Even though I still have to work and have no time-off scheduled, I am ready to soak up some sun and to spend my time in the water with fun cocktails and beverages. I hope everyone had a good week--now to this week's post.

The Arcade opened on Monday and of course I couldn't get through, even with my LetMeIn Hud. Tuesday evening I tried again and I got in after an hour! First thing I did was go to the Zaara gacha and I stayed there until I won at least one of every single item. That took a lot of time and a LOT of Linden, but oh so worth it. Her past gachas have been household items and such, but this time her theme is Goa, which is a state in India, and has a good mix of household and wearable items. Goa is very free-spirited and kind of a Hippie place. So, of course, all of Zaara's items are colorful and a bit trippy--I kinda like it. I love the pants and the bikini she has in the gacha as well as all the jewelry and accessories. The bikini is a rare(and has a color change hud included), and so is the beach shack build. There are about 8 different colors of the pants, and all the accessories are good quality.  The outfit I have put together looks perfect with one of the hairstyles from Truth located at The Arcade. The hibiscus flower included in the hair adds the perfect touch.

I, of course, played other gachas at The Arcade; Erratic had a Lazy Days gacha and seeing how I love lazy Sundays I had to play it. The negligee Alice is a rare and comes with a color change hud. It is very sexy, very pretty, and very lazy(ish).  I was able to wear it without an alpha; it fits so well. Also {anc}LTD's gacha has peacock pets and of course I had to play for them! I adore peacocks, so to have some peacock pets/familiars, it is just one of the best thing ever. PLUS, at my mom and dad's house a man down the way has pet peacocks and we can hear them calling at sunrise and sunset whenever we are outside. And mentioning pets/familiars, +Half-Deer+ has a dragon familiar gacha and they are super adorable. They have mermaid-like tails (which match the other gacha by +Half-Deer+ at the event) and come in cute colors. There are two secret colors, one looks gold/white and the other looks like a starry-sky. They are super cute and I don't think any color is better then the next, so you can play multiple times, or just play once.

Bikini: Zaara Morjim @TheArcade, Pants: Zaara Arpora Fisherman's "So Chic" @TheArcade, Hair: Truth Damaris with Hibiscus @TheArcade, Jewelry: Zaara Friendship Bracelets, Zaara Baga Nosering, Zaara Retro Sunglasses,Zaara Rudraksh Necklace ALL @TheArcade, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: Redgrave Catgreen and Natural6, Slink Hands and Feet

FaMESHed opened as well on Monday and I didn't get too crazy with my shopping there as I normally do(I only really liked a few of the items). Glam Affair has a cute dress and cardigan set, all together costs about 450L$. I thought it looked really cute with some wedges I got at The Arcade and the other hair by Truth from this round of the Arcade. All together with a jewelry set my Maxi Gossamer, which is also at FaMESHed, reminds me of a girl from the 1940s or 1950s. The whole look is just very vintage, fun, and summery.

Outfit: Glam Affair Aya Bodycon Dress and Coldy Cardigan @FaMESHed, Shoes: Ingenue Carmen Wedges @TheArcade, Jewelry: Maxi Gossamer Esmeralda Gypsy @FaMESHed, Hair: Truth Gilda @TheArcade, Sunglasses: Zaara Retro Sunglasses @TheArcade, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: Redgrave Catgreen and Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet

So for The Arcade, I recommend getting a LetMeIn Hud to help teleport you into the event, and for FaMESHed just enjoy a nice leisurely shopping experience. It should get easier to get into The Arcade after next Monday and until the event ends at the end of the month. Please take some time to go check both these rounds out. Hugs and Smooches~

I know I normally don't post where I take my pictures at, but I recently was shown around by a friend the redone sim that is home to a dance club called Lestastic; the ground part is all beachy and fun and so awesome for those of us ready for summer (or to us bloggers wanting fun beach pictures). Lestastic is a Lesbian club and is open to women(female avatars) every day and to everyone on Fridays.
