Summer in RL means summer in secondlife also. Strange enough, cause somewhere always is summer in secondlife. But nevertheless: the bathing season has begun. And it is perfect timing, cause what is the best clothing to showcase a skin? Right, beachwear. So let us start with the skin first: Belleza has joined the Mens Dept. with a special edition of the Ewan Skin. And you can see it in all different views in this blogpost. To tell something completely new about the mens line of Belleza is simply impossible – the skin is, of course, flawless. It gives me a bit older appearance then my regular skin, but I kinda like it a lot. What I personally love about the Belleza men skins is that they are not uber-buffed. So you do not look like a bodybuilder with this one. And an absolute plus always with Belleza is the fine definition of the face. And now comes the best part: you can get the skin for just 150 L$ at the Mens Dept! And of course demos are available.
Another major brand in SL is Miamai – famous for their quirky but always wearable designs. I absolutely fell in love with the new Swimmwear Collection. The swim trunks are mesh and you can either choose between retro patterns like above on the Aron Shorts or vibrant colors (shown below).
The Steve Shorts from Miamai are also mesh and have a more boarderish look. Perfect for every kind of pool- or beach party and definitely one of the must haves this summer. The Little Pool House comes from Designer Prims and is the current Groupgift (the Group is free to join). It is a small beach house with pool and two rooms that – typical for the designs of Designer Prims – float into each other. A brilliant prefab – especially as free gift!
Here you can have a close look on the face of the Ewan Skin from Belleza and also of course on the rigging of the Hawaii Blue Steve Shorts from Miamai since the pose I choose is rather extreme. But as you can see – no distortions or spikes. The shorts just fit perfectly.
In the last picture finally I show you something from the inside of the Little Pool House. And here comes another strength about the layouts of Designer Prims: the prefabs are not overtextured or convulted. It leaves you many room for your own personality and ideas. On the left I am wearing the Nylon Melon Steve Shorts and on the right another find from the Mens Dept.: the Pool Party Briefs from Lazybum with sculpted bulge and drawstrings. The beanbags are from [kusshon] and are also available at the Mens Dept.

Happy Summer Saturday Sweets !
It’s getting hot today. And finally the sun makes it through the cloudy sky. And yes, with this perfect weather, it is even more fun to wear something colorful. And ladies – I know I have mentioned it in the past days a lot of times – the Summer Fashion Festival at Aris Aris Sim is in full swing. So if you look for a summerish styling, this is the place you have to visit.
But, one after another. My todays skin is from essencial. It’s the great Megan skin in a tan tone. The bubblegum make up matches perfectly my todays look. The skin is one of the exclusive items essencial offers at the Summer Fashion Festival. Of course you can try a demo before purchase.
Demo, is a good keyword. The Cathrine Dress from 22769 ~ casual couture is also available at the Summer Fashion Festival on Aris Aris Sim. This great mesh dress comes in different colors for 140L$ each. This dress is a unique creation, the jacket is part of this dress and can not worn seperatly. And the texturing is awesome. The dress comes in female standard sizing. But as with every mesh item I recommend, that you try a demo before purchase.
On this close-up, you see not only the great face of the essencial skin. You also can have a closer look at the latest release from Maitreya. The Siobhan is simply awesome. I’m wearing the Crayon colored in the black hair packs. The Siobhan is available at the Maitreya Mainstore for 295L$ per color.
And right after writing down the credits, I’m out to enjoy the sun. See you all around sweets !

Happy Monday Ladies !
Todays insperation for the blogpost comes from last night. Yes, I have to admit, I was in that mood to watch Pretty Women again. And after the first minutes, it turns into a private ladies night (my beloved significant other started snoring next to me right after the start). Maybe I should fall at sleep the time he watches his movies. But anyways, I’ve told you already about the Gallery Gift Shop before. And today I want to show you the item from 22769 which they have for sale at the venue for just 100L$. There is also a matching male item, I’m sure Nestor will show it to you in the next days.
The Draped Beach Dress is a mesh dress with an interesting cut. I think, you can wear it with trousers or as stand alone dress and show off your long legs for the special sexy look. With this two dressing options, it’s just an awesome dress. The dress itself comes in standard sizing, but as always before purchase mesh clothing: Try a demo for fitting first! The draped dress is also available in different colurs in the 22769 Flagshipstore (150L$).
Again, I’m wearing for this blogpost my Alice Project Hair, available at faMESHed. The sunglasses currently not available for sale. But Ladies, I’m pretty sure, you all have the matching glasses for being hot at the beach.
Have a great relaxing day everyone and an even better start in the week.

sorry, for being absent the last days. But slowly everything coming back to normal levels and that means much more time for me to run around the grid and show you great finds, deals or other cool stuff.
And yes, logging in after a few days, Iwas surprised that Belleza have sent out a new groupgift to their members. The Lily Skin is also a new release at their mainstore! I’m wearing the Groupgift version .. but please keep in mind, that there is a joining fee of 250L$.
My next steps inworld lead me to two of my favorite shops on the grid. 22769 ~ casual couture and Cold Logic. So I mixed my todays look with items from my shopping spree there. And than a nice surprise waiting for me in my little skyhome. A homeless cubechair. Maybe a suprise gift from Nestor – and it could only be him, he is the greatest comic nerd I’ve ever seen around.
But, that’s something Nestor should better explain t you guys by himself. I better give you the credits and all infos on the items I’m wearing, as usual, right after the next image.
Read you soon sweets … I miss you all!
