Hey guys, sorry for the lack of descriptions in the last two posts. I kinda posted them during my RL busy period, so I was more concerned with getting the posts out so that you guys had something to look at, at least. Now that I’m free again, here is a post to bridge the summer and fall season. And what better way to do it than with an this beautiful evening gown by AZUL.
The Nayomi gown is a recent release from AZUL and the thing I love most about AZUL dresses and gowns is that they come in a stunning choice of 14 colors. I’m not gonna list all the colors down for you, you can check them out at the AZUL mainstore. So there’s most likely one color that you’ll absolutely love, but of course do still try on the demos before making your purchase. This gown is a little tricky to wear, so the demos will be useful.
I complemented the color of the gown with the yellow eyeshadow from .charme.. It comes in a collection of 4 different eyeshadow colors in one pack to match your outfits. This eyeshadow is kinda hard to wear, so I was glad to have found the right occasion to make use of it. For my hair, I went with a hairstyle and color that would not clash with the gown or take away the attention from it, so a slicked back style in a light color worked best. Though this hair is a Hair Fair gift from fiore and isn’t available anymore, you can find other similar styles at the fiore mainstore. Oh, and one more thing, you guys gotta go grab this pearl necklace from Lazuri! It’s a freebie set of two necklaces and are so perfect for evening looks. There are two other freebies there too, just head into the Lazuri mainstore and walk right till the end, you won’t miss it.
Hope you guys loved this elegant photo shoot I did with Jackson. The fall season is coming real soon now, so do expect more posts that are suitable for fall!
Love, Kai

Do you guys recognise this location? I think some of you might, those who are regular furniture shoppers. And if you did, you will know that it’s the sim where the Apple Fall mainstore is located. I first stumbled across this place when I went to Apple Fall to grab some freebie furniture (hehe yes you guys should know me by now), and they were highly detailed and sculpted. When I was there I explored the place a little and found this amazing yellow fields behind the mainstore. There are lots more pretty areas in the sim which I haven’t had the time to explore yet but if you guys are interested, you can!
Speaking of pretty, it has been a little while since I blogged some pr!tty stuff. This hair is called Daisy, and just like all the other hairs it can be found in her mainstore. The hairstyle is a sideswept style, I hope you guys can see it from the photo cos it might not be that clear. The sunglasses are a Hair Fair gift from LeLutka, I’m not sure if they’re releasing it in their store as a gift for their customers now though. 
Again, I’m blogging for BENDER, this Nala outfit was released for the Cosmopolitan Event last month, I think. But don’t worry, it can be found in the BENDER mainstore, which is just opposite the FasterPussycat store, also by the same creator. Remember when you TP over, the huge store is FasterPussycat, while the little home houses the BENDER store.
Not forgetting the elaborate honeycomb bracelet from FINESMITH, they have lots of group gifts in store so joining the group is definitely a good idea. Currently FINESMITH is undergoing renovation, so perhaps it would be wise to check in next week or so.
Go grab some stuff, and happy shopping!
Love, Kai

I hope you guys still remember this look, or at least part of it. For those who don’t recall, the jewelry was featured in an earlier post, Taking The Leap. Now, I’ve taken it one step further and styled a full look around the jewelry. Yes, I styled the look around the jewelry, no kidding.
First, I gotta let everyone know that the Aneko skin that I wear like almost all the time since I got my mesh head and body is now available at the Elysium mainstore, since the anyBODY event has ended. So if you’re like the skin and would want to own it for yourself, you know where to head to.
The amazing Garden State jewelry set from BaUbLeS! by Phe is an old release, like I mentioned before, but you should still be able to find it in the store. I can’t emphasize how much I love it. It looks really regal on anyone, and the way the jade complements the gold just makes me excited! Not forgetting the hair by D!va, which is kinda funny how it really fits into this whole forest/animal theme since it’s called Bambi anyway. It’s is unavailable, unfortunately, but there is a new group gift in the store, which you can find out more about right here.
The cute little lingerie-inspired separates is a original mesh release by BENDER, and I blogged another release by them earlier here, if you recall. I think the creators are really talented, and they always create outfits with interesting silhouettes and beautiful colors. BENDER is a relatively new label and I think it is really worth checking them out and supporting them!
And you might notice I have a friend in the photo too! He belongs to Jackson and he agreed to take part in the photo with me haha. I hope you guys love this photo as much as I do!
Love, Kai

I feel so proud of myself! For the first time (I think), I might be blogging a few new items I’ve just discovered right away for all of you. So this time you can kinda take your time to get them cos I don’t think they’ll be unavailable so soon!
Let’s start with the first item, the hair by D!va, one of my favorite hair labels. To be honest I didn’t really like D!va when I got my first gift hair from them and that was about 2 years ago I think? Then fast forward to 2015 when they released the Bambi hair as a group gift, you might recall having seen it a few posts back, in Taking The Leap. I still have yet to do a proper full body shot with that hair so I’ll do one soon hopefully! And just recently, they have released the Iris hair as a 6th anniversary and 50,000 members celebratory group gift. The gift comes with a gown and also hairbases for the Iris hair. The hair itself comes with various attachments, a braid across the forehead, long hair in the front, long hair in the back, long braids on either side, and even though the ad shows 6 different permutations, I’m sure there are more ways you could wear it. It’s a very versatile hairstyle, you can turn it into an updo, and you can just let it hang down anytime you like!
The skin I have on is a new release by Elysium for The Dressing Room, the Kate II in the Sunkiss tone. It’s a darker skin tone than the one I usually have on, the Chai but it does have that tanned look that fits the season now. I complemented the darker skin tone with a bright eyeshadow from .charme. for LeLutka mesh heads. Unfortunately, the releases are only appliers for the mesh head, but it makes for a good reason to get one 😛
The necklace is a group gift from FINESMITH, along with a few other past group gifts that are currently still available in store. The big necklace comes in 4 different colors, cream, blue, black and red, so you can accessorize it according to what you’re wearing. The Amelie gown is a release by Lybra for the Fashiontropic event that had already passed but is now available in the mainstore. There is only one size though, the EasyMesh option. I don’t really know how it works but I assume that it fits each body like a glove. If you have a system body, there is an alpha provided for you. However, you might run into some issues with the Maitreya Lara mesh body, so please please do remember to try on a demo before you make your decision.
I hope this post has been useful! I will do my best to blog about new gifts as much as I can. See you soon!
Love, Kai

So I thought I’d do my take on old Hollywood glamour for this post. Please forgive me if there are styling issues with this cos I’m still rather unfamiliar with old Hollywood glamour but I’m working hard!
I picked an obvious choice (look at the name haha) for the main outfit, a dress from KL Couture that was a group gift. The good thing is, it even comes with a necklace that practically screams ‘this is the 50s!’. For the hair, I chose something that would complement the dress, a hairdo that wasn’t exactly very dated nor modern, probably just the right amount of vintage, and also a hairstyle that will work now. The oh-so-very-sharp heels are the Yeriak heels by Lybra, and it comes in 3 dusty colors (Pastel Leaf, Dusty Rose and Lilac), perfect for that vintage or glamorous look.
This post is kinda short, but before I go I should probably recommend the Ganesvoort House to everyone reading this. It’s a really pretty manor, complete with a patio overlooking the pool. It’s good for a nice relaxing summer photo, and even night party photos. With the right windlight, your photos will look even more amazing than how it already is at the sim! Do check it out!
Love, Kai

Hi everyone, as you can all tell, this is a summer themed shoot. What a better way to celebrate the summer by throwing on a swimsuit and jumping into the pool? That is exactly what I did, a very much needed dunk in the water, as what Jackson will say :P.
The swimsuit on me is a group gift by Countdown, it is still available as of now, so you know what to do! It is a system clothing, but it also comes with various appliers to cater to the different mesh bodies so everyone should be rather satisfied haha.
If you guy had gone to the Hair Fair, which ended a few days ago, I’m sure you’ll have come across tons of anniversary freebies provided by each store. There’s just so many to collect I can’t even remember how many stores I visited! I picked the Tangerine hair by MOON because it looked effortless and relaxed, the right kind of look for summer. I styled it with the Lilium hairclip by Lybra, a hairclip comprised entirely of flowers. It lends a pretty and elegant feel to any summer look, and you might even use it for spring if you like. It comes in two colors, Potpourri (which I have on here) is made of red and orange flowers, and Blue/Lilac, as the name suggests, comprises blue and purple flowers. I would even suggest Potpourri be used for a day look, and Blue/Lilac be used for a night look.
Also, I would like to mention the lipstick I have on in the photo, courtesy of .charme., a makeup and accessories brand by Patina Edwardstone. She makes lovely and colorful lipsticks and eyeshadows, so if you have a LeLutka mesh head and are looking for makeup, look no further. The lipstick comes in two shades per color, a dark and a lighter one. I chose a lighter shade as I didn’t want the lipstick to overpower the whole look. Besides, some of you might even ask, who actually goes to swim with makeup on?
Fashion models do!
Love, Kai
