Drifting Away

Summer is almost officially here, well not technically... However, this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend in the States, which kicks of the start of Summer - unofficially. Officially or unofficially, it is definitely feels like the Summer. I had been staring at this awesome kiddie pool from Cheeky Pea, called the "Cassie Pool". It is part of the 'Cassie's Backyard Barbecue' set, which is Cheeky Pea's FaMESHed exclusive this month. If you read my blog at all, you have seen me blog all or parts of this amazing set before. It is definitely a Summer must have for your home, especially if you love entertaining friends!

Now that warmer weather is here, you simply must find a gorgeous bikini to wear. Kallisto Destiny of  DRIFT, created a fabulous line of mesh bikinis in different textures and colors. The one I am wearing is called the"Tini Kini2" in leather. One feature that I really adore about this creation, is that is comes with a color change HUD. This way you have several color options to style this super sexy bikini with! I suggest going over to DRIFT now and try on a demo!

I am really impressed with all the new hair releases lately! There are so many it is hard to keep up. LOL!One of my absolute favorite styles is one of Kavar Cleanslate's (of Exile) recent releases, called "Independent Woman". The long full locks, which are expertly pulled back into a semi ponytail, are just too luscious for words! You must TP over to Exile and check-out all of Kavar's latest releases.

For last month's cycle of Collabor88, Hart Larsson of PXL Creations, introduced a new skin called "JADE". JADE has to be my favorite PXL skin to date! Hart is still in the works of perfecting JADE for the full release, but you can see she is perfect already. Just so you know, this is a WIP (work in progress) skin and in it's "bare" state. I am wearing the sunkissed tone too. If you have worn (or at least demoed) PXL Skins in the past, you will notice that she is quite different from Hart's previous skins. The lips are more glossy and less matte, the shading is not as intense in the face and she also has a more youthful appearance. At the same time, she still maintains all the lovely and realistic body definition that PXL is known for. Anyway, I am really excited for the full release of this beautiful skin!

Oh! I almost forgot! I am wearing the most adorable necklace, called "Mia". She was created by the talented  Gyorgyna Larnia of LaGyo and it is a Collabor88 exclusive. Each part of the necklace is texture change via a HUD and comes with matching earrings! You can find the matching ring and headband in the LaGyo mainstore as well! 
Look into my eyes! These are the new 'Vanity Eyes' again from Ikon Innovia.  They come in a ton of colors (these are grey) and are just so pretty! So, with that said, here are all your LMs:
