Hipster is, as Hipster does….whatever that means

Good evening Fabulouses!! Or morning, depending on where in the world you are 🙂 Well, it is evening for me, and as I sit in my sweltering living room, I thought I would try to take my mind off of how much like a sauna my house will be with the heat wave my area is going to experience this week, by showing you my Hipster look.

CoffeeHouseHipster1

My look was completely inspired by the newest free, Reign group gift. The group was recently free to join for a short while, with the temptation of a free pair of shoes if they hit a certain number before closing up free entry. As a little thank you to all the new people who joined, as well to the current members who pushed, pulled and dragged everyone they knew to join, KenadeeCole, one of the owner’s/creator’s for Reign, sent out this cute little texture change Hello Hipster Necklace. You get a hud with 4 different colours to change the ‘Hello’ to, and I really like the simplicity of the design. If you hurry, and aren’t already in the group, I just checked, and, as of 10PM SLT (Monday), it’s still free to join.

My next choice had to be glasses. No self-respecting hipster would be caught without their glasses on. While I have a few pairs in my inventory from days past when I always had glasses on, I wanted something new, and a little less sleek/modern. My favourite place to search, the Marketplace, did not let me down! The Mad Nerd Glasses, by Mad Mesh, were the first pair to pop up in my search, and lucky me, they were only L$9! Score! You get several different colours in both plain, and checkered versions, and even better, they are totally mod, so you can make them any colour you need.

Sticking with my accessories, I picked up these super adorable Hot and Cold Marshmallow earrings by Pink Acid at the current Candy Shop round, and for only L$50. Seriously, the expressions on their faces, so cute, though I do feel a little bad for the hot marshmallow, he doesn’t look like he is enjoying the heat at all. Kinda like me…LOL.

CoffeeHouseHipster3

I think, my favourite finds of my whole outfit though, are the * [BE]lieve – Black Urban Hipsta cat blazer with T-shirt, and * [BE]lieve – Hipster Studded Triangles Shorts. Both of these were finds on the Marketplace, with the Blazer- T-shirt combo setting me back a total of L$20, and the shorts were only L$10. How could I say no to either, especially when there is a cat print involved 😛  Both pieces are mesh, coming in standard sizes, though I will warn you that I had to go up a size in the shorts, wearing a L instead of my usual M, but the L fits perfectly, and the M Blazer sits over the shorts without any part breaking through. I don’t know if the creator made these 2 to go together, but they work so well together, that it sure feels like it was meant to be. Love when that happens! Make sure you take a peek at all the other items from * [BE]lieve, as all their stuff is well priced, nothing over L$50, and great looking.

So, how do I look? Am I hipster enough? I am the type of person that I just wear what I like, not really paying attention to whether I fit into a certain group or not, and it works for me. Truthfully though, this look of mine is going to be saved and worn over and over, that is the sign of a great outfit. I hope you all agree 🙂

Until next time, TTFN *waves*

If You’re A Bird, I’m A Bird

Snapshot_003Hey Fabulous readers 🙂  I’m back to share more !Soul with you!  While I was at the !Soul shop the other day picking up the latest group gifts, I noticed a sign at the landing point for The Pink Kawaii Hunt and I did a little hunting and found the hidden icon.  I picked it up for 5L and was pleasantly surprised to see when I opened it up that their TPKH prize is this adorable mesh mini dress and matching handbag.

I have paired up this cute lil summer outfit with the Summer Flower Flats by Poute that are currently being featured at this round of The Cosmo Sales Room in a variety of colours for just 70L each.

Do You Wanna Go Straight To Hawaii?

The Aloha Fair has started and is a celebration of all that is summer and sunshine! It runs until August 11th so there is plenty of time to come and soak up the tropical atmosphere and snap up some great bargains and exclusive items!

You can also find a whole host of freebies and dollarbies as well as two gacha areas and bazaar areas where there are huge discounts on amazing items! In the next series of posts from myself, I will be showing you the freebies and dollarbies you can find at the event. To find these, you are looking for a brightly coloured surfboard that will be either inside or propped outside each store.

I have included LM’s to each individual booth, but it is landing point locked at the event so you will land at the main landing point. Hopefully each LM below will show a red beacon on your map so you can find the item by following that!

Aloha

For a tropical splash of colour, you can’t go wrong with the Niokolo Maxi Dress by ArisAris and I can carry all the things I need for my day on the beach with the Aloha Tote Bag by DEW. Eye protection from the summer sun is also a must so the Black Shore Glasses by HollyHood are stylish and perfect for the job! My black slingbacks by Snob are probably not the best things to walk in the sand with but for wandering along the promenade they are great!

Aloha

The gorgeous Alana skin is by Poudre and comes in several different tones with two cleavage options. I will be showing more of these tones during the next few posts! I love wearing flowers in my hair, so the beautiful Hibiscus hair accessory by Delirium Style adds the perfect finishing touch!

Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield – Ever After

A Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield, originally blogged [HERE]  *Note from Love Trill – this post was done yesterday – The Hair Fair Items are no longer available, but I thought you might enjoy a re-visit from Serena with a fabulous 30L deal from Bite & Claw! 

b&c8_001f

What I miss about childhood is the absolute belief that I will one day marry a prince, become a princess, and live happily ever after. Sadly, real life and old age have proven that theory to be a bust, but at least I can still play dress up and pretend in SL. This gorgeous dress is from Bite&Claw, and if you hurry, you can pick it up on sale for only 30L! My pretty updo is a free gift from LaNoir Soleil at Hair Fair 2014… again, hurry because today is the last day. Oh, and another last minute event you can catch is Lazy Sunday, where you can pick up the sweet Paper Butterflies lamp from Plethora.

Also “fit for a princess” is this vanity table by [CIRCA] – complete with lots of accessories and animations! – available at the current round of, er… Fit For a Princess. Several colors from which to choose! While you’re there, you can also pick up the crown and necklace I’m wearing, and play the [freebird] gacha for a sparkly, royal manicure.

Have a “happily ever after” week!

Any Given Sundae

Any Given Sundae 1

Hello Again, I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend! In a previous post I mentioned how I’m kinda over this summer heat. Well, there is one thing I very much enjoy that is generally associated with hot weather, ice cream! One of my favorite ways to cool off on a hot day is with a little ice cream. This outfit very much makes me think of strawberry ice cream, which is a personal favorite of mine!

It all started with this over-sized shirt from Cheeky. The top is their July group gift, so just a few days left to grab it up! It is fully mesh and comes with the sunglasses that hang casually from the neck-line. I thought it was perfect for a lazy afternoon. Lucky for me, and for everyone else, I came across a slew of pretty pink gifts to go with my new shirt. The toe-less leggings are a store gift from Flair, there are 3 separate colors in the pack, and they include appliers for Slink Physique along with regular clothing layers. How cute are these knee pads from Skull Designs? Another group gift I could not resist! It’s an addiction for certain. hehehe These knee pads are also mesh, and they are completely free, just wear the group tag! As if things could not get any sweeter, I found the perfect pair of shoes waiting for me in the past notices for HollyHood! Over all, I think it’s a fun casual look, perfect for a lazy day cooling off with some ice cream.

Here are the detail, Enjoy!
