This is the first of my Hair Fair 2016 posts. This fabulous event is open, and of course part of the proceeds from every sale will go to Wigs For Kids. It’s a great cause, with a ton of hair designers. There’s something to suit everyone’s tastes there, so definitely check it out. You can find all of the information you need, including a map, on the official blog. I’m wearing one of ISON’s lovely releases – Marie – in these photos. I’m also wearing one of Catwa’s newer head releases, Dyana, with the Bambi applier that Pink Fuel released for it at Kawaii Project.

starts in my toes and I crinkle my nose

My cute little dress is from Blueberry, and the strappy, sexy heels I’m wearing are from Glamistry. This adorable pose, which comes with the bubbles prop you see, is from Infiniti and is available at The Season’s Story. I’m using the Trompe Loleil Zohra Oasis, which is available at the current round of Uber. You have a few more days before this round closes and there are lots of awesome items there, so go check it out.

Here’s a better look at the shoes! The BBQ set you see in all three pics is from Dynasty’s release for The Epiphany. It’s a super cute set, and one of many amazing things you can find at this round of the event!

Finally, here’s the YouTube video that inspired two of the titles of these pics.

Over the rainbow

The Pulse Fundraiser is winding down. It will close in just under 24 hours, so if you haven’t gone yet, hurry! If you’re not sure what I am talking about, this fundraiser is benefitting the families and victims of the horrific incident that took place last month at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. There are a ton of fabulous designers participating, not to mention auction boards where you can bid on some fabulous people and/or prizes.

I wanted to do something sparkly, cheerful and dreamy. So I went to StoryBrooke Gardens and, just by chance, found this giant book. And the quote on the page… “hope springs eternal.” It just seemed perfect. I’m the odd mix of realist and idealist. I often say I’m a realistic idealist. I want to believe change is possible, that things can be different. That the world, as ugly as it can be, is also still full of so much that is beautiful and good. And when I see the SL community come together for an event like this, it’s just that much easier for me to hold on to that hope.

I’m wearing a lot of items you can find at the event. My hair is from Exile, the dress is Valentina E. The body glitter and bracelet are both Izzie’s. My shoes are Reign. The adorable star “freckles” are Vile Cult.

Over The Rainbow

In this pic, you can better see the cute star tattoos, along with the beautiful applier Glam Affair released for Uber. Although this applier was designed with Annie in mind, I am wearing it with Alice here… and I think it’s pretty adorable!

Rainbow Sprinkles

Definitely be sure to run over to the Pulse Fundraiser before it ends. It’s worth it! You get to support a great cause while buying beautiful things. Or bidding on beautiful prizes/people!

Rack ’em up!

I really wanted a t-shirt type dress because of Thomas Rhett’s song T-shirt. I mentioned that to Annie Melson, the talented creator behind Just Because and she liked the idea enough to do it! It’s called the Zoe T-Shirt Dress and it’s really freakin’ cute, as you’ll see below. I paired it with the special edition Harper clogs fri.day released for the Pulse Fundraiser. If you haven’t heard about this yet, it’s a great event to raise money to help the victims from the horrific shooting that took place in Orlando last month. Some really amazing designers have come together to donate their talent to help raise money. On top of that, there are auction boards… but more about that in just a minute. I wandered over to Blithe and found this really awesome scene. It was sort of dark and moody and sexy and it suited my mood and my outfit perfectly, I felt. I hopped up on the pool table, and while this table (from Apple Fall) does have built in poses, I decided to use a recent release from Infiniti for the pic instead.

Rack 'em up

My adorable hair is from Truth and it includes a version with a cat ears headband that’s just cute as hell. You can find it at The Fantasy Collective’s special After Dark round through July 15th. I’m wearing one of Catwa’s more recent mesh head releases, Helena. I love this face so much, and DeeTaleZ created an applier for it that is so beautiful it’s actually why I bought the head! The applier is called Fable. I have a LOT of mesh heads and appliers at this point, but this is probably my favorite combination yet. My necklace is from Cae’s current FaMESHed release, and it’s really lovely. I decided to mix up the metals and am wearing a combo of silver and rose gold. There’s also a choker that has gems and earrings available to go with this.

Scarlet Hustler

Okay, so now about the Pulse auction boards. There are a bunch of talented creators and photographers, along with some date boards… you can win some time with someone or win some amazing prizes. Like Blueberry fatpacks for life. It’s definitely worth checking out. Yours truly even has a board, and if you bid on me and win you’ll get early access to Whimsical, before it’s open to the public for a lag free shopping experience. I’ll also do your profile picture, and give you L$2500 in store credit at Repose, the pose store I co-own with my husband. And Sanura Snowpaw, who owns Somnia, generously added L$2500 in store credit to my board. It’s all for a good cause… 100% of the proceeds go to the fund set up by Equality Florida. So even if you don’t bid on me, consider checking out the boards and bidding on someone else!

And now, I’ll leave you with this…

Almost summer

I did this pic before I left for vacation, and called it “Spring Stroll.” But it’s almost summer now, and even here at 9,000 feet in Colorado, it feels like it! We finally have leaves on our aspens and wildflowers are blooming… and it’s really lovely.

In Second Life, I found a lovely spring scene at Blithe, and decided that this top from Just Because suited my mood. It’s summery but also very boho, and I looooove all the boho stuff that’s come out lately. Plus, hello boobs! It’s super sexy! The skirt is from Blueberry and the sandals are fri.day. True story… I hate shoes in RL, but I kind of wish I had these sandals in RL. That’s saying something!

My hair is from Exile at The Arcade, one of two styles you can win. My adorable corgi companion is also at The Arcade, from Jian. The stunning necklace I have on is from Cae, and I promise to get a closer shot of this one because it has a star and I love stars. But in the meantime, you can check it out yourself at FaMESHed.

Spring Stroll

Happy Friday everyone!

Red High Heels

This look was built around a pair of high heels that I just completely fell head over… well, you can see where that bad pun would lead, so I’ll spare you (which I am sure will break my brother Benton’s heart). They’re the Crocus heels from Glamistry, and what got me was the shine and then the side detail of three princess cut diamonds (hey, it’s SL – I can have diamonds instead of rhinestones or CZ). But here’s a close up of the shoes, so you can see for yourself.

In my red high heels

Aren’t they awesome? Okay, so once I had them on I decided on a recent release from Neve called Jazzy. I went with the tropics version. My hair is Mango, brand new from Tableau Vivant and available at Kustom 9.

Red Red Wine

I decided to do a bit of heterochromia with this look. It’s not something I do on a regular basis, and to be perfectly honest, I didn’t plan it. I was trying to decide what color eyes I wanted, and had one brown and one green on and it just worked for me. I’m also wearing Cae’s Flutter ring, which is a free gift available at FaMESHed. Her regular release for the event is a gorgeous matching necklace. It’s their anniversary round and a lot of designers have gifts out. You have to join the FaMESHed group, but it’s free and definitely worth it! I’m also wearing the brand new FATElashes from Damien Fate. These have already been updated to include even more textures. Strawberry Singh did an amazing post, complete with a video, about these lashes. Definitely check them – and Berry’s useful post – out. I have a hard time adjusting lashes, but I was able to adjust them to work with LeLutka’s Stella head with minimal hassle.

Loving him was red

Oh, and all of these pics were shot at It all starts with a smile, the beautiful sim from the lovely Kaelyn Alecto. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Snapback

So this post is a very long time in the making. As soon as I heard Old Dominion’s song Snapback, I knew I wanted to do a blog post inspired by the look the singer describes. I knew Truth had just released a perfect hair for it. But life happened, and other things got in the way and I only finally, months later, decided it was time. I was gonna do it! Especially after I saw that they got the look SO wrong in the music video (linked at the end), I had to do it.

And I mean, these new(ish) shorts from Neve were perfect. They were inspired by Dirty Dancing, but the cutoff, wornout version just seemed made for this look. And frankly, just being inspired by a movie made them perfect for my new challenge itself (more about that in a moment)!

Snapback

In case you’re wondering, these were the lyrics that inspired this look.

Those stars need to be wished on
Your skin needs to be kissed on
My eyes baby, they’re fixed on you
In your snapback
T-shirt of your favourite rock band
Checking your makeup in my Ray Bans
Breaking hearts like only you can
In your snapback

This also felt like it required a romantic moment, so I grabbed my alt and voila!

Kissing you would hit the spot with me

I’ve got a LOT of these sorts of ideas… so I thought about it, and decided to create a very informal challenge for it, complete with a group called Inspired By Words: Second Life. If you have any pics inspired by words – whether from songs, books, poems, movies – feel free to add them to this group! Just be sure to let us know what inspired you. I am gonna aim to do one of these at least once a month because they’re fun!

Here’s the link to the video. It may not play if you’re outside the US, but you can read the lyrics here. Also, for those who haven’t heard it before, “snapback” is a nickname for that sort of baseball cap because they often involve plastic snaps.
