All finished bandanas must be in by July 31st 2019 – Available on Marketplace

Hair Fair is a little over a month away, starting on August 17th 2019. Each year we ask the community of Second Life to help us further by creating Bandanas that we sell during the event and round out the event with the last day being the official Bandana Day.

Each year we receive bandanas either textured variants of the bandanas we provide in our kit or unique mesh created by those that want to help support this cause. We invite anyone interested to grab the kit available and help add to the money raised through this annual event, this is the 12th Year of Bandanas and we are so moved by everyone’s eagerness to help. You do not have to own a store or be a creator to help, look at the information to see how…

Goodbye 2018

Happy 2019! I know things have been quiet here. I’m hoping 2019 is a bit less of a RL roller coaster and that I’ll have more time for SL blogging. Although, I did have a good reason for taking off November… I wrote a novel, as part of National Novel Writing Month (better known as NaNoWriMo). My goal is to self-publish on Amazon in the coming months.

But, since the holidays have come and gone – and before we get any further into the new year – I did want to share a few pics I did in December.

My SL daughter Nana and I spent some time hanging out on Christmas. Mostly we were both AFK in RL, but I did manage to grab a pic of us, both looking really festive (I don’t have her credits, but if you’re curious, just ask! I can get them from her).

Christmas with my daughter

Here’s a closeup of me in my amazing Christmas tree hair from Astrology. Astrology is having a wicked store contest right now, and you could win the entire store! For all of the info on how to enter, check out the Astrology blog post for the contest details and requirements. The contest runs through January 15th.

Santa's Helper

I also wanted to share the details on a less, uh… traditional… Christmas pic I did. I did a headshot that goes with this, but haven’t edited it yet. When I do I’ll upload it to Flickr and link to this post.

Maybe Next Year

Wishing you all a wonderful year ahead!

I’ve been hooked on this song by Lindsay Ell since I first heard it probably six weeks ago. I’ve had it on my Current Obsessions playlist since. I thought it was good inspiration for a pic, so here you go… me in a posh limo (courtesy of Foxcity) wearing a sexy little red dress (from Just Because) and these killer Kristen heels from Gos, which you can snag at the October round of FaMESHed before it closes. I’m wearing LAQ’s Athena head in this post, which I will also wear in my next post with a close up. This head is gorgeous and if you’re looking for a less “soft” or “cute” look, I definitely would check this one out. I personally like softer/cute so I tweaked my shape and I’m using one of LAQ’s eyebrow appliers, instead of the very strong (and gorgeous) default brows on the skin for this head. But this head has such a great jaw and nose, and I really love it.

You make me feel like Jessica Biel

I’ve been dealing with mental health struggles lately. I had hoped there might be a medical cause, in terms of vitamin deficiencies or a thyroid imbalance (which I’ve had a lot of this year), but all my labs were normal, so I’ll be following up with my psychiatrist soon. It’s been a hella crazy year for us in RL, so I’m kind of thinking some of that is catching up to me. But I believe very strongly in discussing mental health challenges, so as to help with the stigma they still carry, so I thought I’d share my struggles here.

Hair Fair 2018 – MVPs and Info

Hair Fair 2018 is winding down… be sure to check the latest post about this fabulous event.

Hair Fair Second Life

Hair Fair 2018 BannerLabels_Banners

There are a few days left for Hair Fair 2018 and it has been an exciting event. We made a few changes and tried a few things, and we are extremely happy with the outcome so far. We started with a raffle that gave everyone in world the opportunity to win early access to Hair Fair. Previously the only way to obtain that as a VIP was through our photo contest, but we came to realize that not everyone is a photographer — but most love hair! We did not want to exclude people, so we came up with a new idea, and it worked great. It also meant people visited the stores of our participants in advance of the event.

We moved the events time of year to September. This is not the first time it has been at this time of the year, and the move was based…

Autumn Respite

It’s been an intense few weeks… my vacation ended abruptly with me in the ER and then I had surgery this past Monday and I’m waiting on some biopsy results. So I’m not going to talk much. But I did want to post because Hair Fair 2018 (that link takes you to the blog, with slurls and pics for every store) is underway and it’s such a fabulous event. Remember it’s a charity event that raises money for Wigs For Kids, which is just awesome. In these pics I am wearing one of the four (!!!) new releases Exile has out at Hair Fair! Also, I want to point out my boots, which came from White River Co. This is a new collaboration from Darling Monday (friday) and Elikapeka Tiramisu (Elikatira). I am in LOVE with every single item they’ve released so far at their pop-up store and can’t wait for the full store to open.

Are you excited for Hair Fair? I know I am. To help with shopping time, be sure to join the Demo Group! You can grab all the demos, try at home and make your list (and check it twice, of course!) before you head over to the event.

Hair Fair Second Life

Hair Fair 2018 Join Demo Group

Each year the day before Hair Fair starts the participants send their demos to our demo group. This is so that you can spend a day trying all the styles in advance and know before you arrive what styles you want to purchase. It helps not only you have fun trying everything, but also decreases lag at the event, with fewer people trying on demos during.

We urge you to join the group in world – secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about – copy and paste into local chat to join. Or you can click the poster near our subscribo .

See you at Hair Fair 2018…

Summer’s End

I live at 9,000 feet in RL (which is about 2700 meters for those not in the US). Here fall comes early. We had a first tree start showing signs of changing in late July, and now there are quite a few aspens with yellow leaves. I love fall (and am not overly fond of summer) so this makes me really happy.

Because I began changing my sim to fall at the end of July I rented a little beach cottage on one of the Baja Norte sims. They’re really pretty and you don’t have to be a renter to get rezz rights. Just join the group (there is a fee, but I think it’s worth it). Respect that the houses have renters, but other than that the sims are open to explore! It’s a great place to do summery, beachy pics and I may keep mine year-round! It’s a reasonable rate and it’s kind of fun to have an SL “vacation” home, silly as that might sound!

Anyway, when I saw this dress from Neve I knew it would go perfectly with the cute print heels Ingenue released for August’s Collabor88 (they should be in the Mainstore soon, if they aren’t yet). I chose the ice cream cone ones (because, hello adorable!) and my general goal was to look like the embodiment of ice cream. My Magika hair color is courtesy the group gift Color Melt Palette hud which works with specific newer hair releases. The ice cream cone is from Half-Deer and the pose is Nantra’s. The straw hat is an automatically rezzed prop but you can remove it if you don’t need/want it for some reason. The lemon cushioned chairs from Half-Deer went nicely next to my Dust Bunny ice cream vending machine out on my deck.

Ice Cream Dreams

My closeup better shows off the adorable LAQ Cherry head, which I paired with Pink Fuel’s applier Melody. I am always so happy to see stores release for LAQ heads. They’re my favorite heads to use (LeLutka being my second choice) and while Mallory Cowen’s skins are utterly gorgeous, it’s fun to have more variety and options! Mochi Milena puts a lot of thought into her huds for her appliers and I love using them. They’re easy and fun and you get so many options. Plus, I’ve always felt adorable in Pink Fuel skins! I’m wearing a pair of glasses by Cae on my head. Also by Cae is my cute flamingo necklace.

At Summer's End

Full credits below! I’ll be leaving for vacation on Saturday, but when I get back I have some news to share! I’m pretty excited about it, and hope others will be too!

Summer Fever

I’ve been sick with shingles and so I’m not going to write much… but I wanted to share some things with you all!

I’m wearing lingerie by Gos (a recent Uber release that should be in the Mainstore soon), with gorgeous shoes that match and can be found at FaMESHed through the 27th.

My alt is wearing hair I snagged her at the Wasabi Pills summer sale which ends tomorrow (the 24th) so be sure to head over to grab some gorgeous hair at a great price!

Summer Fever

We’re both wearing LAQ heads. Mine is a newer release – Sandy – and I’m also wearing eyes Conviction’s Lucent available from Lookbook. I’ve added the SONG Cutie Liptints to my look, which is also a Lookbook release. Lorelai and I are both wearing e.marie nails. Mine are the Lookbook release.

I got the boy…

The two pics in this post were inspired by Jana Kramer’s song “I Got The Boy.” I have had the idea for this post literally since the first time I heard this song… and it came out in 2015, so it’s been a long time in the making. You can read the lyrics (and I’ll add the video below, which may not work depending on where you live due to streaming rights). But the gist of it is, a woman sees her first love’s wedding pic in the paper… and she gets very nostalgic.

I decided to use my malt and one of my alts to do this. My malt is in the same skin/body/head for both shots, but with the help of some different hair and a beard, he’s “grown up” a bit in the wedding pic.

I got the boy (which for some reason I did with my alt, so really “I” got the man lol).

I got the boy

She got the man.

In this look, I am wearing Pink Fuel’s gorgeous LeLutka applier for Lookbook. I also have on one of Izzie’s Natural Glosses for Lookbook and my eyes are LeLutka appliers, also a Lookbook release, from Avi Glam. Izzie’s and Avi Glam also included Omega and Catwa appliers. You can grab the free HUD to shop from on Marketplace or you can pick one up in world at Lookbook HQ. Lookbook HUDs update on the 27th of every month.

She got the man

The song that inspired it all.
