April Collabor88 and More!

Spring is well underway and there are a ton of AMAZING events reflecting the season this month. In fact, it has been really hard for me to keep up with all of them, since I had been away. So, I will do my best to make sure I credit all the event exclusives in this post correctly. If for some reason you can not find the item listed in the mainstore or event listed, please let me know and I will find out the correct info.
As always, my favorite monthly event is Collabor88. And, as I mentioned in the previous post, I am in LOVE with April's theme - Watercolors In Bloom!



Maylee Oh, of The Secret Store, really went all out with this theme (as she always does), creating this lovely Betsy Halter Tank and stunning Amy Highwaist Skirt. The Betsy Halter Tank is adorned with a delicate lace trimmed collar and comes with 3 wear options, which include: tucked, cropped and tunic. The Amy Highwaist Skirt is made up of a gorgeous rose brocade-like texture that is to die for! Both the tank and skirt are available in a ton of pastel colors and vivid prints that you can easily mix and match. So make sure you run and demo them ASAP!
These adorable sling-back Lily Flats are also an April Collabor88 exclusive from the talented Betty Doyle of Ingenue. These were specifically created to be worn with Slink's avatar enhanced bare feet (flat), which is another reason why I love them so much.



Pose Fair 2014 is here and there are a ton of amazing poses and props to be found at this venue. Poses are just as important to bloggers as the clothes we wear. They inspire us and help bring our ideas into a visual and expressive image.
In my first picture, I am holding a super cute umbrella in a even cuter pose. Both the umbrella and the pose, are part of Rockstarroo Gossipgirl's (of [Atooly]) pose collection, called Umbrella Time. The all mesh Umbrella Time prop comes in a beautiful array of Spring colors and the Umbrella Time pose pack includes 5 charming umbrella poses. They are a Pose Fair 2014 exclusive, so make sure you head over there to check these out all of Atooly's awesome poses!
In my second image (above pic), I am holding this seriously yummy Sweet Ice Cream cone from the adorable Nati Wiliams of Imeka Poses. This is not only a super cute prop, but the pose is scripted into it too! This is just one of 9 ice cream cone gacha poses, which are available at Seasons Story. Be sure to get over there soon and try your luck!


Izzie Button just recently released a beautiful new skin called Nomi. She has lovely delicate features and perfect pouty lips. As with all of Izzie's skins, Nomi comes with a ton of options. Here is how it works - each skin tone (fair, pale, porcelain, peach, natural, medium, sunkissed, tan, med tan and dark tanned) comes with a base skin with brows (light, blonde, dark & ginger) and/ or cleavage embedded into it, which comes to a total of 8 skin bases. Then Izzie included a multitude of tattoo layers that you can mix and match freely, in order to customize your look. These options include:

  • Freckles - Face & Face/Body (on tattoo)
  • Moles (on tattoo)
  • Eyebrow Tinter (on tattoo)
  • Lash Eraser (on alpha)
  • 12 Lipsticks (on tattoo)
  • 10 Eye Shadows (on tattoo)
  • Eyeliner (on tattoo)
  • Shape
  • Shape for Phat Azz
All of these options are included with each skin tone! You do not have to buy these separately, which is really an amazing deal for such a gorgeous skin. Izzie also sells appliers for just about every mesh appendage on the grid. I highly suggest demoing Nomi or any of her other amazing skins ASAP!
The fabulous hair that I am wearing is a recent release from the amazing Kavar Cleanslate of Exile. This stunning style is called, Full of Secrets. I really adore the generous wavy locks that can look both cute and sexy. 
This awesome headpiece, called Persephone's Halo, was created by Olivia Lalonde of Le Poppycock. It is actually one of several gacha floral hair "halos", which were an Eden Rising event exclusive. Unfortunately, the event is over, but I am sure you can find it in the Le Poppycock Mainstore. If you haven't been to Le Poppycock lately, you really need to go. You can find so many wonderful accessories and poses for very reasonable prices. 
You are probably tired of my writing by now, but I just wanted to mention the background decor real quick. This fabulous Waterfront Dock is a Home Show 2014 exclusive from {what next}. You simply must run over and take a look at their whole Waterfront Collection, which includes: docks, charming cottages, vintage light posts and motorized boat props. 
You must also check-out the seriously cute table and chairs that I have rezzed on the dock. They are part of Cheeky Pea's Rainey Bistro collection, which is a Seasons Story exclusive that you do not want to miss!
I apologize if I forget to mention or highlight anything. I am terrible at writing concise posts and would be truly amazed if you were actually still reading this. LOL. You can find everything in the following credits and LMs:
