Hey, everyone! I hope you’re having a great week so far!
I’ve been slightly AWOL over the past couple of days due to the release of The Sims 4, which I have been patiently waiting for ever since I heard of it’s release and tested an early version when I worked at Eurogamer in London during October 2013. I’m having lots of fun with it, and you can see what I’m getting up to in my game by heading over to my Sims Tumblr, or ‘Simblr’ as the community likes to call it. You can find it here!
Today’s blog post is a rehash of an outfit i’ve been wanting to blog for a while, when I was having my 90s-esque phase of looks a week or so back. I recieved a couple of new releases from Truth, as well as a lovely little shirt dress from Rowne for their Collabor88 release, and decided that these pieces worked extremely well with certain other items in the original look, and et voila! Here we are.
The pants, by Baiastice, and the bracelet (which I adore!) by Izzie’s are still available to pick up at The Dressing Room FUSION for super cheap! So head over and pick these beauties up whilst you have the chance.
If any of you are playing The Sims 4 as of late and have a tumblr page yourself, be sure to give me a follow! I’ll be back and forth between this and that blog over the next couple of weeks until I start to get bored of it. Ha!

Today’s post features a hat that I think I wear way too much, but whatever. There aren’t that many good hats in SL that are versatile with many styles of hair, so I latched onto this one when it came out a couple of years ago from Celoe, and proves to (as you all have seen) still be one of my favourite pieces. The glasses from Epoque and the bracelet from Amiari are also items I often wear around the grid, and you’ve probably noticed me featuring them in many of my posts lately.
I initially thought against blogging this look, because of this fact that I wear these items too often, but my blog isn’t directed at being specific to new releases at the moment, so I thought I’d share nonetheless.
This coat by Vive Nine Ryvolter, a late release at the Uber event comes in a fantastic array of fabric styles and patterns, and definitely worth the 400L price tag. It works perfectly with Celoe’s Kenya dress that was released for the Safari Chic round of Collabor88 earlier this summer.
Friday’s new Zoe heels in the colour Autumn are absolutely darling. Can you guess why I like them? I only recently picked up the SLink high feet, but I have been picking up so many beautiful shoes for them lately that I’m super happy I finally got around to getting them.
I figured that this outfit was about reusing things and adding a couple new items to it, so I headed back to my favourite sim, Mayfair, to take this picture outside the Irish pub! I’m a wee bit tipsy now, I tell you.
I hope you’re having a fantastic hump day, and thanks for stopping by!
Uber’s new round is upon us, and what a fantastic round it is!
With the theme of an apocalypse, Uber’s designers have seriously dug into their creative outlets and pulled out some fantastic creations ranging from clothing, to furniture and even set pieces!
This jacket from Xin, which is actually a male jacket, works well as a unisex piece for females with a smaller chest, It comes with a fantastic variety of options in a sleek, well designed HUD, and I spent around 10 minutes just playing with the colour options to figure out what I liked best.
The Ukai’s set by Maxi Gossamer is absolutely fantastic and works perfectly with the bang on trend boots by Deadwool that have filled an empty space in my inventory. I love them.
I’ll be sharing pictures of my other looks over on my Flickr over the next couple of days, but in the mean time check out this sneak preview from yours truly of the Uber sim this round!

Hi, guys! Today I’m bringing you my first collaboration post, and what better person to work alongside than the fabulous Xanthe!
The both of us have been speaking about doing this post for a while, and today everything seemed to fall into place when we both realised we were wearing 90s-esque looks! It’s always such a fun experience working alongside another blogger as it brings out a further sense of creativity to create something truly special and different from the norm.
My look was originally inspired by Phoebe from Friends, but seems to have morphed into an adult’s version of something a kid would have worn in the fabulously awesome 90s. Perhaps I’m partial, I was born in ’92, after all. I don’t miss those god awful skorts though. Never, ever.
The hair that I’m wearing also wasn’t planned. I originally intended to wear the Hall hair from LeLutka’s latest release, but Kavar Cleanslate sent out the blogger copies of this beautiful updo that will be released on The Arcade’s Anniversary round, September 1st. There’s a couple of sparkley versions to play for, so make sure to head down and gacha your little heart out for those!
I’ve had an awesome time working on this little project with Xanthe today, and am looking forward to working with other bloggers in the future!
Have a fantastic weekend!

Epoque & Bilo both released new items last night, and I absolutely adore them. I’ve worn Epoque’s old Browline shades for years now as my go-to glasses, so when Vintage McMillan informed me of her new release that acts as a homage to her older pieces, I was thrilled. They come in a variety of four colour packs to choose from, each pack with their own pattern/colour options. The lens themselves are wearable as glasses or sunglasses, depending upon your preference.
Chandra Masala of Bilo is fabulous and a very close friend, and I’ve gotten to know how creative she can be, and always inspires me. This new dress if stunning. Seriously. It’s extremely versatile and can be dressed up or down with the right accessorising. I definitely recommend it as any SL woman’s staple addition to our already brimming wardrobes.
Finally, the bag and jewellery. I think that my SL old age (I’ve played on multiple accounts since around early 2005!) has finally caught up with me, because I seem to forget all about events and remember just as everyone has already picked up the new releases. I’ve never been great at accessorising and it’s something that I try to work on as much as I can. So when I saw these pieces at FaMESHed and Uber this month I snapped them up as I knew exactly what they would go with. I’m feeling very Hamptons housewife heading to her girlfriend’s for a spot of poker and hors d’oeuvres in this post. I love it.
It’s nearly Friday, everyone! Hope you’re all getting excited for the weekend. I’ll leave you with this fabulous song of the day.
