Ah, the unplanned hiatus!

So, I sort of took a break. It wasn’t planned, but I found myself needing to refresh and relax last weekend. Then I had a fibromyalgia flare up, and that’s been distracting me all week. I also started a new class this week, at a new university. I’m excited by this, as I really want to accomplish my goal of becoming a teacher! But the result of all this is that I’ve been a distracted blogger, to say the least, and for that I am sorry! However, I have not forgotten my Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow challenge, and I’ve been uploading pics for it on Flickr. I’m still a bit behind, but at least I’ve got some and can catch up a bit. More will come soon.

Since I’m behind overall, I deviated from my default look to show you some cool stuff. But let’s start with the pic I did for Day 5, I’m using my default pose and outfit, but this skin is the gorgeous new Ginevra from Izzie’s in pale. I added the brown eyeshadow and eyeliner tattoo layers. My eyes are Steppe, a new color in IKON’s Eternal series. I love the sort of greenish-tan feel to this shade. I took this pic on Tuesday, the day of the Rolling Restart hell! Our sim was one of many affected by the restarts, and I couldn’t do anything on it most of the day. So, I used the Linden home and snapped this pic there. The chair you see is from Trompe Loeil, and the wall decal is What Next. The hair of the day is Ashleigh from Alice Project. If you are like me and are fussy about the shade of your hair, you definitely need to check out the Alice Project hair. Her huds are amazing and let you do a lot to customize your style.

For Day 6, I deviated entirely from my default look. You can find full credits at the bottom, but this top is from Greymoon. It’s so unique and comes in a lot of colors. The one I am wearing is black and white and I paired it with jeans from Sn@tch. My Day 6 hair is Long Day from Ploom. I technically bought the browns pack, but I tinted it. I’m not entirely sure how I wound up with the browns, lol. Likely I bought them for a shape or pose ad for Embody. I love the messy, wispy style of this hair. I also tweaked a shape and made it my own. I think most people won’t even notice the differences. They are probably more subtle than I think they are!

HTGT Day 6

This skin is new from Aeva. This is Charity bare. It’s so soft and delicate. I felt really pretty and ultra feminine in this skin. What I really love about the bare skins from Aeva is that they still feel more mature than a lot of bare skins. The eyes I used in this look (and the next) also one of the new Eternal eye colors from IKON, Teak. I love brown eyes with my red hair. It feels less expected than green or blue. I mean, I wear those, too! I’m a chameleon, except for my hair color which is (nearly) always red (some blog posts aside)!

Charity

Day 7 features a LeLutka hair I bought ages ago and sort of forgot to ever wear. *Facepalms* But that’s the point of this challenge, right?!? Lively is sooo long and lush. I feel so pretty in this hair. I’m wearing a dress from Sn@tch and the gorgeous new Siobahn skin from Adam N Eve.

HTGT Day 7

I admit that this hair shade isn’t as red as I like it to be, but this style has a little clip. If I tint the hair, I’d tint the clip. And this red is still pretty, especially with the bright lips on this skin.

Siobahn

So, now I’m still 2 days behind (not counting today), but I’ll get caught up soon!

  1. Fanstastic post. I especially liked the shirt from Greymoon (tongue in cheek). Thanks for blogging my design. Much love. Everything else looks awesome too!
