Ready to go for an ice cream cone?

Yeah, me too.

This summer’s Seasons Hunt is a sweet treat as usual, and of course I cannot show all the beautiful hunt prizes, which range from beautiful clothing, shoes and accessories for men and women, to carefully crafted house wares and a lovely beach house. For those who don’t choose to idealize the season, there are several sunburns and zinc treatments available in this hunt, and Miss Shippe even provided heat rash and mosquito bites. (A little too much reality for me.) Enjoy!

I need to practice origami. It's been years and seeing this cute kimono brought it back: Sitting on the floor with an instruction book when I was eight or nine years old. Beautiful paper spread all around on the floor, from which I had chosen an intricate blue and silver printed tissue.

It was the gorgeous paper that drew me in. But after I made a little flock of colored paper cranes, I loved the little birds enough to keep folding them in pristine white sheets. Over later years of drawing and painting my taste expanded beyond beautiful glowing jewel tones, to include black and white, and all the subtle tones of gray in between.

... I fell in love the moment I saw this sim. When I studied Art in college, I had a major crush on mixed Charcoal and Ink Washes.

Just a quickie. Between all the new Hair I "had to have" from Hair Fair, and some new Curio skins, I don't have much money left for the rest of the month. But I picked up many gifts at Hair Fair too, and some of them are perfect for Gogo's Bubblegum Weekend!

I love the messy wisps on top and the crazy color on this LollipopZ hair. It comes in three parts, with two pieces that attach to the shoulders.

Now this cute little bob is by Lamb. It comes in a megapack in all her shop colors and was labeled "Colortesters" but I think they're adorable, and because each one is only four prims I think you're seeing my new Event and Fair hair. Four prims doesn't add that much to sim lag does it?

And I think I'll finish off with this truly bubblegum hair from BC322. I love candy!

Red: LollipopZ “Dolce” Gift ... with American Bazaar Lipgloss and Hairbase by booN
Purple: Lamb “Bob” Colortester Gift ... with Curio Lipstick (old gift)
Pink: BC322 “Dee-Dolly” Gift ... with Mynerva Lipstick

I am so enjoying the Truth District opening … Lovely designers, beautiful scenery, and the buzz of good company. Standing room only.

Several of the designers timed the release of new creations to coincide with the District Opening; in particular Gala Phoenix released three new skins, with six makeups each. As soon as I saw the Curio sign, I knew I was in big big trouble. You know how am about her skin, don't you?

This soft, glowing, beautiful skin I am wearing is a gift. (I would have paid!) *happy sigh* I'm still trying to choose one or two more ...

Shirt: Whippet and Buck “Claven Lace” (opening group gift at Truth District, it is a bit transparent so I wore two layers)
Belt: Pacadi “Mairey Leather Belt” (unavailable)
Skirt: 5th and Oxford “Seaside Sweetie” (L$50 at Closing Sale)
Jewelry: Lassitude and Ennui “Bleeding Heart” (texture change HUD)
Shoes: Pixel Mode “Baby T’s”
Hair: Truth “Becky” (multicolor pack, opening group gift at Truth District)
Hairbase: by booN
Skin: Curio “:GP: Airhead-Truth District” (opening group gift at Truth District)
Eyes: Fashism “Sunrise”
Eyelashes: by Exodi and Glow Studio
Poses: by Diesel Works and Long Awkward Pose



The new Truth District shopping sim opened about half an hour ago. The sim is now fully loaded and for the next couple of days you will be seeing the sim opening gifts all over the feeds. Click, click, click go all the mouses of people trying to get lucky and TP in the moment someone leaves. My computer isn't really up for that so I was glad to be invited to visit before the crazy began. And I have to tell you, that place is dangerous. An alarming number of lovely stores spread themselves out before me, tempting me to empty out my wallet on the first day of the month. ;D Recommend joining the Truth District Update Group and running over there to look!
