Start Blending Your Spices for the Perfect Chai

Happy Sunday! I hope this weekend has been awesome for everyone. This week has been crazy busy, but lots of fun! I have spent this whole weekend with my college besties. I haven't been online much this week, but I have been to Shiny Shabby. Go ahead and have a cuppa and enjoy this week's fashion picks.

Coat: Moon Amore Abril @ShinyShabby, Shirt: Senzafine Sohma Tank, Leggings: Coquet Janey Denim Skinny Leggings, Necklace: CAE Juno, Rings: ieQED Jessi Rings Bronze, Boots: Rebel Gal Starry-Eyed Leather Boots, Hair: Tableau Vivant Eastern Wind @TheArcade, Lip Gloss: Glam Affair Romy Goddess, Skin: Glam Affair Ellie Skin, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet, Whatever Mesh Fang Teeth

Shiny Shabby opened on Tuesday, and I was so excited to see quite a lot of outfits and items I liked. I ended up making a list and planning my shopping out; I have noticed I have been planning out my Second Life shopping a lot lately. It makes keeping myself on a budget easier, and then I can save lots more money this way.

Moon Amore has a COOL coat for the autumn. I love the windblown look, and it goes so perfectly with an editorial hair I got at The Arcade (The Arcade's last day is Wednesday September 30). It reminds me of taking evening walks around the woods and fields around my family's home and the wind gusts blowing through my hair. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

Outfit: GizzA Annie Pleated Shirt and Short @ShinyShabby, Shoes: Flite Yacht Shoes, Necklace: Maxi Gossamer Forget Me Not Flower Heart, Hair: NEW TRUTH Emerson, Skin: December II, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth

GizzA has a fun shirt and shorts set. You can choose between colors they come in color combo packs. You still have to buy the shirts and shorts separate from each other. I love the tucked-in shirt. It just looks so laid-back and comfy. Zenith also has a fun dress out for this round. It is a really pretty simple long dress with sleeves that scrunch up at the elbow. It comes in very neutral colors, different shades of brown and white. There aren't any pinks or blues or blacks.

The dress by Valentina is really pretty and elegant looking. It really does look like cashmere and makes me want to pull out my cashmere sweaters for the Autumn. The pearls scattered around the skirt make the outfit flirtatious... in my opinion. And come on, who doesn't like to be a little flirty in the Fall? It is starting to get colder, people are starting to add on layers and the leaves are changing colors. The air is getting crisp and people are starting bonfires and hay rides....Lots of opportunities to cuddle up next to someone special or spend extra time with your loved ones. Love it.

Outfit: Valentina Pearl Cashmere Ensemble @ShinyShabby, Jewelry: Aphorism Bijou Collection in Moonstone (Waist Chain, Ring, Bracelet), Shoes: Maxi Goassamer 60's GoGo Boots, Hair: NEW Truth Emerson, Lip Gloss: Glam Affair Romy Goddess, Skin: Glam Affair Katra Ballerina, Eyes: IKON Charm and Natural6 Lashes

Well, I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend, and I hope the start of Autumn has been wonderful. Hugs and Smooches my Tea Readers!!!!

Pumpkin Spice to Welcome Fall

Happy Sunday! Seems like sickness is going on all around me at work and at home. I hope everyone is doing well and keeping the bad germs away.

Outfit: Zenith Autumn Coat and Dress @Kustom9, Shoes: Zenith Leather Heels @Kustom9, Handbag: Zenith Autumn Leather Bag @Kustom9, Hair: Truth Honey, Necklace: Geek Spun Gold Necklace, Glasses: Gos Custom Eyeware Intution, Ring: Tea.S Starfleet, Skin: Glam Affair Angelica V2, Eyes: IKON Charm, Lipstick: Glam Affair Goddess Romy, Tattoo: Joli Atma, Slink Hands and Feet

Not much to show this week. I have been to a few events, but the only thing I really liked was an outfit by Zenith at Kustom9.  It is a gacha, and the items are dress/cardigan piece, heels with sock, handbags and some big kitties to hold. Two of the dresses and the two kitties are rares. I was lucky enough to get the black and red dress I wanted as well as the tabby kitty I wanted. It took a while, but I got them!!! The outfit is really well done, as is all of Zenith's items, and it makes me want to take a nice stroll downtown in the art district sipping on a latte.

Headphones: Soy P/R/O HeadPhone for Monitoring Head @Kustom9, Shirt: Lunarsugar The Wolf, Skin: Glam Affair Ellie, Hair: Truth Harmony, Eyes: Senzafine Under the Milky Way Sky Clear @Genre and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Necklace: Maxi Gossamer Jewelled Hand of Fatima, Earrings: Yummy Pearl Stud, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth 

I am not much for techie accessories, but I liked these headphones by Soy at Kustom9. It is a gacha as well, and the vendors are close together. I was lucky enough to get the rare on the first go. The Rare comes with a color change hud. So I was able to match the headphones to a shirt a friend of mine made (super cute shirt, and I haven't really taken it off since she sent it to me). I also want to mention briefly Genre. The theme this month is Twilight Zone, and my FAVORITE thing are these mesh animated eyes to look like the night sky and celestial formations. The picture does not do these eyes justice, but here is the plurk which contains a brief showing of the animations.

Not a very long post for this week. I hope every stays healthy! Hugs and Smooches Tea Readers!!!!

Earl Grey for the Muted Coven

Happy Sunday! I hope this week has been another amazing week for everyone. I was glad to have Monday off from work due to Labor Day, and I have been so ready for the weekend. I think it is time for a long vacation. Especially since kids are back in school now.

Outfit: ISON Occult @Collabor88, Shoes: Samantha Booties @Collabor88, Hair: Olive The Pumpkin Pie with #5 Bangs @TheArcade, Ring: LaGyo Layered Rings1 @TheChapterFour, Earrings: Maxi Gossamer The Moon and Stars For You, Lip Gloss: Maxi Gossamer Romy Goddess, Skin: Glam Affair Marta @Collabor88, Eyes: IKON Charm and Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth

Collabor88 opened on Tuesday with the theme Muted Coven. I took the theme to mean understated/subtle witchcraft. While most of the colors are dark, they are not "Bold" dark--to me everything looks to have some sort of grey shade. Still a few other color options available (I bought a few white and blue pieces).

There were a few outfits I fell in LOVE with, like immediately just had to have. ISON has this dress/overcoat outfit where there is an option for a moving coat. The dress has a look of sophistication and the coat gives the dress some flare. But the moving tailcoat option is like...the best thing ever. Here is a short video of it moving; it is really fast in the main picture shown, but a small way down there is another video with the actual movement speed. I bought the midnight blue color because the moving of the coat made me think of ocean waves...but I had to go back for the white set as well. Love this outfit! I also bough a lace outfit by Pixicat. I am a sucker for lacy, so when I saw this skirt with the lace overlay. The top is cute as well, kinda like a bralette.

Dress: M.Birdie Lexy @Collabor88, Coat: Schadenfreude Thessaly (men's size) @Collabor88, Shoes: Pure Poison Ingrid Pumps @Collabor88, Hair: Little Bones Hexxed @Collabor88, Wand: Boom Swish and Flick Cedar 10 1/3 inch, Ring: LaGyo Layered Rings1 @TheChapterFour, Skin: Glam Affair Marta @Collabor88, Eyes: IKON Charm and Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet, Whatever Mesh Teeth

I also fell for a dress by MBirdie. Very tight fitted, and the triangle cutout in the breast area adds so much. I saw the ad for the dress and I did a bad thing, I bought without trying the demo. BUT it worked out and the dress fits perfectly. I have a few MBirdie pieces which require lots of editing of my shape in order to fit properly, but this dress fits so well. And while I was putting the outfit together I had to teleport back to the event (after it taking me an hour to get there...and the lag was HORRIBLE) and purchase a coat/cloak from Schandenfreude. I decided the whole ensemble reminds me of a Hogwarts professor. AND the dress looks good with the ISON overcoat as well! Big plus.

Foxy also as a cute dress and hat outfit. Makes witchcraft look more modern and updated. And the hat fits with the Exile hairs at the event pretty well. Only minor adjustments to make them fit. On a bit of a side note...I hate editing hats. I love fancy hats, but editing always kills me. I make the hat too small, too lopsided, not enough tilt, not the same size. I am just horrible. All I had to do with this hat was move a small bit and do a small little rotation. Then Viola! Perfect look.

Dress: Foxes The Craft @Collabor88, Hat: Foxes The Craft Hat in Tan @Collabor88, Hair: Exile Songbird @Collabor88, Necklace: Maxi Gossamer Soul Catcher Book of Spells @Collabor88, Ring: LaGyo Layered Ring1 @TheChapterFour, Shoes: Pure Poison Ingrid Pumps @Collabor88, Skin: Glam Affair Marta @Collabor88, Eyes: IKON Charm and Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands and Feet, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth

Enough of my crazy shopping addiction for now. I hope you get a chance to take a look at Collabor88 this month; its a wonderful round. Enjoy the rest of your week. Don't forget to take some time for yourself. Have a cuppa and stay safe!
