Hold Tight Mr. Sniffles!

Wizarding Faire opened up on the 12th, and you know I had to get my geeky butt over there to check some things out. 
There is some pretty amazing things for sale there, but first, a little bit about Mischief Managed - the group that organized this affair.
Mischief Managed is a very popular Harry Potter RP group, which attracts not only people on SL, but people within other Harry Potter roleplaying groups who joined Secondlife just to be a part of it.
I am a part of the RP group (Go Hufflepuffs!) and even though I've only RP'd there a handful of times, the people there make it a special and fun experience, enough to make a lasting impression on a RP newbie like myself.
The sim dedicated to the roleplay is decorated like Hogwarts - with some new editions like Hogsmeade, and Brighton Beach - and it is beautifully done. It really feels like you're walking around Hogwarts which is awesome for those of us who were heartbroken little 11-year-olds who never received their letter.
Some of the goodies I grabbed include the ever popular Ohmai Nifflers, Hopscotch's super handy Emergency Potion Bracers, the Pose Shop's Nimblus 2000 pose set, and some cute accessories from Nerdology, Strike It, the Little Bat, and Wicked Peach.
Wizarding Faire will be opened until July 25th, so make sure to pop on over and grab up some magical items before it's over.

A Little Mix of Everything

Today marks the start of the month long event Mix.
Mix is an event that mixes - get it? - sales, exclusivity, and new items, and includes a bundle of stores. Today's look was  put together with items from a few of the dozen's of participating stores: Ingenue, Elikatira, Reverie, and Bokeh.
If you'd like some more information, and details on how to get the HUD for this month's event, check out Mix's website Here.
Events like these are always a good way for people like me who can't resist shopping to explore and find new stores. This was the case for me today, when I saw the adorable dress available at Reverie for this month's round. I had never heard of this store before, but it is definitely going on my list of favorites.

Three Goddesses

So, this morning I logged on to a new Belleza Mesh Body update, and I was delighted to see new body types included with the update.
On top of the updated Venus, you'll receive Freya and Isis - 2 new mesh bodies.
First and foremost, my favorite, Freya:
This is a slightly curvier version of the original Venus. The only issue I have with this shape, is how teeny tiny the waist is. No matter if you raise the "Love Handles" option when you edit your shape, the waist to hip ratio stays relatively the same.
Isis is leaner, and sleeker than Venus and Freya. It's described as being more detailed in the update NC given with the update.
The original Goddess, Venus. There hasn't been any noticeable updated to the Mesh of the Venus body that I can detect, however, the HUD has gotten a make-over. 
Along with new alpha slots, there's a new Wardrobe HUD, which makes it easier to save and store outfits without having to search your inventory for appliers. You just put together the outfit, or even just a single piece of an outfit, save it to the Wardrobe HUD, and viola! 
All of these updates are free if you're a previous Belleza Venus owner, but if you don't have the Venus body yet and are looking for some extra incentive, here you have it. For the price of one Belleza Venus body, you get 3, along with matching hands and feet, and an easy way to store outfits meant for the body. 
p.s.: If you're looking for a more in-depth review of Belleza's Venus, check out my original post about it Here

Daily Grind

I was cleaning up the mess I call an inventory when I happened upon an old landmark for the New York City sim. I hadn't been there since 2013 - which is eons in Second Life time - and wondered if it was even still there, and to my surprise it was! It is a really beautifully done sim, so of course I had to take a picture.
This was also a good reason to go shopping (like I need a reason), and luckily, Coldlogic and Ploom are both having summer sales, so I snagged a few things.
It seems to be that time if year where everything is on sale! There are quite a few stores putting on Summer sales that I know of - Fatewear/play/step, Magika, and Third Eye to name a few, and Truth just added a bunch of new hairstyles to their discounted stock, so I would check that out too if you're looking for a good deal.

Uber opened up today, and the theme this round is Rustic, so I decided to go for a little glamping trip. Trompe Loeil has a fantasic Glamping set available at Uber which has got to be my favorite thing ever, perfect for the Diva trying to reconnect with nature.
There are loads of adorable items to choose from this round. You should really take a chance to check it out.

Salt Water Waves

Hello again! 
So, I came back from my SL break, to see that Logo had released a beautiful mesh head in my absence.
This beauty is called Alex, and she is jam packed with some amazing things. 
***Just as a warning*** This is post is very in-depth. I'll be showing pretty much every option this head comes with, so be prepared for a lot of photos and info. If you're not into that kind of thing, I'll post a TL;DR before the giant wall of review.***

So, TL;DR: This new head comes with the standard defaults for Eye makeup, blushes, and lipsticks. The newly added features include some amazing new expressions, and the option to add a new face set - freckles. All of the makeup options - including the optional add-ons, will include a freckle option, should you choose to use it. The freckles however, are an add-on sold separately. 
The head and included makeups is 2,500L's, not a bad price considering all it comes with. The optional add-ons range from 99L to 499L. The head does come with a base skin, but doesn't come with any appliers. Appliers are sold separately.
One of the best features of the new head, is all of the new expressions. While all Logo heads come with expressions, Alex has the most variety.
(These are the default expressions - click to enlarge)
(These are the add-on expressions - click to enlarge)
Another great feature about these expressions is that you can mix and match - meaning you can have the eyes from one expression, and the mouth from another. This adds a great variety to what you can do with this head.
(These are the default eye makeups - click to enlarge)
(These are the add-on eye makeups - click to enlarge)
There are so many makeup options to choose from, even without purchasing the add-ons. Ranging from simple to dramatic, there is something for every occasion you can think of.
These are just the eye makeups. Wait until you see how many lipstick options there are.

(These are the add-on lipstick options - click to enlarge)
Sooo many options. 
On top of all these choices, there are extra nose, cheek, and eye options to really customize the look of your avatar.
Logo's Alex is in the same ballpark price-wise as most other popular mesh heads in the market. However, these aren't third-party accessible like heads such as Slink Visage, or the Lelutka mesh head, so that is something to consider if you're looking for a new mesh head. 
All-in-all I really like this head. I wish that the appliers for other mesh body parts weren't so expensive, since they aren't included in the 2,500L mesh head purchase (I paid nearly 500L's for just the Physique applier). But the face is fantastic, and the facial expressions are perfectly adorable.
