Good Advice

I loved this sign I found over the jukebox in the Blithe Tavern. I found I relate to it, and think it’s true of me. Don’t ask me for advice if you don’t really want my honest opinion. I’ll be as kind as possible giving it, but I also won’t sugarcoat it. It’s how I want to be treated, so it’s how I treat my friends. Plus, I swear a lot, talk about TMI and other inappropriate things and I think it’s fair to say that I’m definitely not the friend for those who are easily offended! But I’m loyal, love my friends with all my heart and will defend them whenever needed, too.

Anyway, let’s talk the sexy dress I’m wearing. It is new from Apple May Designs and you can find it at Tres Chic through October 5th. It comes in four beautiful colors. My skin and eyes are both from Cosmetics Fair, which is doing a gacha round. I’ll be honest and say I wasn’t overjoyed by that, particularly during an Arcade month when I’m pretty gacha’d out. But I did cave and play Essences and The Skinnery.

Good advice

The Third Eye

Tableau Vivant released this awesome hair with a built in hat for Hair Fair 2015. For those of you who aren’t hat lovers, there’s also a version available without the hat. But the hat makes me think of Maria Von Trapp or something. It’s so dramatic and huge and awesome. I decided to pair it with these seriously cool eyes from Chop Shop available at Wizarding Faire 2015. They include a third eye, which is optional but so neat! It moves! There’s also a version with gold metal, but as I prefer silver, that’s what can be seen below. I usually prefer very realistic eyes, and these are a bit more dreamy, more doll-like. But I think they’re gorgeous, and I feel really cute wearing them. Especially in this skin, Aribeth, which is a recent release from Essences.

There’s a big sale at Essences for the rest of the month, and while Aribeth is not part of that sale, plenty of other gorgeous skins are! So if you need a new skin, definitely check out that sale before it ends. The nail applier I am wearing on my Maitreya body is also available at Wizarding Faire, from The Wicked Peach. It’s an applier called Grimoire, featuring house colors and I’m wearing scarlet because I’m a Gryffindor.

Does this hat make my third eye look big?

The little cottage behind me is from Larkham & Co. and can also be found at Wizarding Faire. It’s really adorable, with a cute single room on the ground level and stairs that lead to an upstairs room. I plan to do another post that will show more of this cottage in the coming week, so stay tuned. My dress is an older release from coldLogic, but I wanted to point it out anyway because it is materials enabled and it downright shimmers in the right lighting (with the proper graphics settings). Materials are definitely a cool addition to the SL world. One final Hair Fair note! You can find a list of all participating stores, by sim, on this post on the Hair Fair blog! It will help you navigate this huge (four sims!) event. And remember, all sales help the great charity Wigs For Kids.

Skin Fair Part II

I have some more from Skin Fair for you!

First, from PXL, is Aeryn. I am in love with this skin. I feel adorably sexy in this one. This skin has a lot of add-ons, including appliers for PXL’s own Sweet Lips mouth, moles and freckles on tattoo layers, cleavage on tattoo layers and a tintable eyebrow tattoo. I took this pic while sitting in the adorable Bluebird Cuddle Van that Consignment did for the current Collabor88. The entire set is a quirky and adorable take on a camping set, and I definitely love it!

Aeryn

Next, meet Sadie, one of La Petite Morte’s skins for Skin Fair. This one is young and innocent in appearance, and probably would be cute on a child or teen avie, too. I’m wearing another color of the Adored Moon eyes line that is also at Skin Fair. I am really loving these eyes, and this dark green is perfect for me since I currently have spring fever and it makes me think of dark green leaves! The lovely sim Blithe, with all its lush spring greenery, made a perfect backdrop for this vibrant new face.

Sweet Sadie

Finally, Essences has three new faces for Skin Fair. This is Storm, which I really liked. There is something almost impish about this face, which made it a perfect match for a post featuring items from the new Create Your Own Tarot event that opened last week. The first featured card for this event is The Fool, so all items have are themed to match. My hair is from Ayashi and the dress is Valentine E. Couture. I took this pic at the darkly beautiful, post-apocalyptic theme park sim Everwinter, which is new from the owner of Baja Norte. And again, I’m wearing Adored eyes, this time in a dazzling amethyst shade that seemed to suit to mood.

Friday's Fool

There’s just a week left for Skin Fair… so be sure you don’t miss it!

Tempting FATE

I really loved this outfit from FATEplay’s most recent release. This one was a post-apocalyptic, nuclear war inspired release, and all of the outfits include wristband radiation detectors. I’m not wearing that in this pic, though, because I fell for the old west sort of look this particular outfit offered, and decided to take it to an old west inspired sim! I used the Destination Guide and found Salt Lake City, Utah – 1872 to be suited to my needs. My hair is from Elua, a store I discovered during the recent Hair Fair. I really loved this particular hair because it includes a version designed for use with hats! It’s SO hard to find hair flat enough on top to work with most hats, so I thought this was ingenious. The fabulous pose, complete with wind blown props, is from Infiniti.

Hold on to your hat

I’m sick (stupid, rotten late summer cold), so I’m lagging a bit with posting. But I’ll have more soon, promise!

Bandana Day & the end of Hair Fair

Hair Fair 2014 is winding down… today is the final day, so please stop by if you haven’t, or even if you have but didn’t get all the goodies you wanted. While you’re there please consider grabbing one of the many Bandana Day bandanas available. This is such a cool project, where designers create bandanas and the money raised goes entirely to Wigs For Kids. I chose a bandana created by lollipopZ because it has owls and I love owls! It also features such bright, cheerful colors. You can also see my SLink manicure, by Somnia for My Attic, which runs through July 31st.

Bandana Day 2014

In addition to showing you my adorable bandana, I wanted to show off one final style. This one is from Exile, and it was perfect for the dreamy, fantasy mood I was inspired to create by this garden lounger from Sway’s and a couple of cuties from Silent Sparrow and Schadenfreude the Wild Things gacha festival, which is now open! The Sway’s garden lounger is part of this weekend’s Dreaming Tree event, which has a theme of daydreaming. For the rest of today you can grab it for 25% off the regular price at Sway’s mainstore.

The Dreamer calls to nature

Finally, I wanted to show you a closer look this gorgeous new skin from Essences… Greek Goddess. I’m wearing it in Pale 02, which is such a creamy, dreamy porcelain tone. You can find The Greek Goddess in the Essences mainstore.

Hair Fair and…

I have a couple more Hair Fair styles to share with you today, along with two great items you can grab at the current round of We ❤ RP! Plus, a handful of items from various other events, including Kustom 9, The Theme Park, Fit For A Princess and Oneword.

One of LeLutka’s new Hair Fair offerings, Christine, combined with this dramatic dress Peqe has at We ❤ RP inspired my first look. The pose and beautiful lantern prop are also at We ❤ RP, from Picture This! Poses.

Tryst of the princess

In this close up, you can see the gorgeous skin Lumae has out for The Theme Park’s Summer Vacation edition, which is now open. It also gives you a better look at two items from Cae that can be found at events; The Queen of Hearts pendant, which is available at Oneword’s Wonderland round, and the stunning Happily Ever After Ring available at Fit For A Princess.

Waiting

I love when an event introduces me to a store I’d previously not known. My next Hair Fair pick is from Ayashi, a store I’d not heard of before Hair Fair 2014 opened. I thought this style was cute and artsy, so I paired it with this gorgeous Mutresse dress I bought a while back and haven’t worn. I added some sexy SLink boots, and found an art gallery to showcase the look…

Art Aficionado

Essences has a new gacha skin at the just opened round of Kustom 9. Alex is really pretty, with a lot of dramatic makeups to win. This is just one. I tend to go for more natural looks, or at least more traditional makeup. But something about this bright red eyeshadow and the unexpected pink lips just grabbed me.

Crimson

Be sure to check out all of these great events… however, you may need to invest in more Lindens first!

Hair Fair is HERE!

Hair Fair is one of my favorite events of the year. Not only is it fun to go try all the new hairs, Hair Fair benefits an incredible charity called Wigs For Kids. You can read all about Hair Fair 2014 on the official event blog.

As with previous years, Hair Fair 2014 features a clean, easy-to-navigate layout. Since I get lost so easily at events, this is something I’ve always really appreciated. I feel the event organizers go to great lengths to try to make it a fun environment that is as low lag as possible. But this year’s build is just so, so cute on top of all that other good stuff. I had to snap a couple of pics. As in previous years, you’ll find redelivery terminals scattered around the sim, in case lag gets the better of you or you accidentally decline an offer.

Hair Fair 2014 2

Hair Fair 2014 1

For my first Hair Fair 2014 post, I chose one of Ploom’s new styles, Carrie. I love the sleek, somewhat retro feel to this hairstyle. It’s so elegant! I paired it with a sunset colored dress from SySy’s, which goes so nicely with my adorable fri.day wedge heels available at The Seasons Story.

Summer sunset

My beautiful skin is Essences Galadriel, which is also available at The Seasons Story in the new skin tones (which I just love). My jewelry is from Cae, for The Dreaming Tree, so hurry… you can still grab this set for a discount for the rest of today!

The dirigible plums need sun

You will find Ploom on the Brunette sim at Hair Fair. The Hair Fair blog has a fabulously informative post about this year’s event. It breaks down each of the four sims by stores and also features a handy map!
