The latest creation by b[ELLE] made me think of summer candy — the candy necklaces, dots stuck on paper and strips of sugary gel.
The Sweethearts Dress comes with a HUD and all of the patterns are unique and fun. I had a hard time choosing my favorite, but the 3D look on the hearts print really stands out.
I’m a total klutz in both worlds. Every time I try to fly or drive in SL, I run into things. But this scooter was too cute–and cheap– to pass up. And I can stand still and pose on it!

I went to the Farmer’s Market today to pick up some fresh fruits and vegetables. The strawberries were so plump and juicy that I sat down to eat a few before I went back home. Mmmm….closing my eyes and inhaling the fresh scents around me before taking a bite.

It’s hot. It’s muggy. It’s a perfect day to sit barefoot in the shade of a big old tree, feeling the breeze come off the river. A tall, cold glass of lemonade would taste great right about now!

Magika just released this new hairstyle called Rowan. I’ve just found my new favorite braided style.

I don’t usually do an extra post in a day, but I had to rush this one to the blog and Flickr. It’s marvelous!

This photo shoot started with an
hunt item from Lunar Seasonal Designs. The prize was a lovely goldfish bowl, which I was able to enlarge and swim inside. This rock is perfect for lounging and the goldfish and I are having a lovely visit. I’m sure it gets lonely swimming around and around by himself. Around the Grid in 80 Days
