Glowing Goddess by Kiko Life

I’ve known Osumtomi Melendez for quite some time. Probably since my early days in SL. Tomi, as she is affectionately called, had a dream to create ethnic skins that represented the wide range of hues and colors for black and multi-ethnic avatars. It was from that dream that she launched Kiko Life. You can view some of her first generation skins here, here, here and here.

Well RL took her away from the grid and Kiko Life eventually closed. But having remained in touch with Tomi, I knew she wanted to review the brand and make it better than before. Well after many months of hard work, new programs and “applier hell’ as she calls it, now Kiko Life is back! With a new look, a recent relaunch and a brand new line of skins, made just for today’s more advanced avatars.

Meet the Glowing Goddess! These glowing, luscious, gorgeous faces come in eight skin tones, do not wear any makeup and each one is named after an African Goddess/Female Divinity.

Lumae @ OliveYou Fundraiser

Time to band together to help a fellow SL resident…

Rose (Naminaeko) is the owner of Olive. Recently, Rose received devastating news in her real life. While she intends to fight through this challenge, her friends in the SL community want to help her out. And you can too…

This is where the OliveYou Fundraiser comes into play! Lumae has created a special edition of the “yet-to-be” released skin called Eliana. The skin comes in four tones (three shown above) and has a pretty rainbow eye makeup.

During the event– August 16 through August 31– each skin is 425L per tone and 100 percent of the proceeds go to help Rose.

Learn more about the Olive You fundraiser here.

Full Release of Benton Harbor Avail @ Hucci

Last month, I blogged the Benton Harbor Sandal from Hucci which debuted during the May 21shoe event. Since then, Eboni has done a full release.

This highly detailed, cork wedge just screams summer and the braided straps reflect the soft, almost-pastel colors quite well.  A totally irresistible sandal for all your summer fashions!

benton harbor
Benton Harbor is designed for the SLink high mesh feet. If you do not own these feet, the shoes will not work for you. View SLink mesh feet on the SL marketplace.

Above I am wearing Benton Harbor in the following colors (l-r): nude, dazzle blue, moonglow and wild pink. The entire collection, which includes a total of eight colors, can be purchased in-world or on the marketplace.

Happy shopping!
