Hair Fair is upon us.  I personally set my donation goal for myself.  Then, I figured out which hairs to buy with my own personal goal.   Please remember that you have the chance to raise money for Wigs for Kids as you shop.  As someone who works with children in real life, I have seen students struggle first hand with hair loss suffered through various illness. A child’s strength is unbelievable, and Wigs for Kids is just one organization that helps them cope with their illness by increasing their self-esteem.

So, it is quite daunting to shop for Hair Fair.  You are inundated with fabulous hair all at once.  I personally grab pretty much EVERY demo.  My boyfriend, Sands, kept trying to talk to me. Our conversation over 2 days was this:

“What are you doing?”
“Getting demos at Hair Fair.”
….2 hours later
“What are you doing?”
“Trying on demos from Hair Fair.”
….Next day
“What are you doing?”
“Buying hair at Hair Fair.”
….an hour later
“What are you doing?”
“Taking blog pictures for Hair Fair”

Obviously, more conversation happened, but it was hilarious because Hair Fair always puts me in a ZONE.

Please consider stopping by Oleander at Hair Fair.  Her hair was some of the first ones I demoed…and I made sure to stop back at her booth to pick up these beautiful styles.

Hair Fair is coming: July 11 to July 26!

Hair Fair 2015 Join Us Poster


Hair fair is coming! There is ONE day remaining until this charitable and notable event opens it doors to the public.  Hair Fair is quite possibly my fav SL event ever.  Tons of your favorite creators come together to produce a large showing of hair in various styles that can suit anyone.  Beyond the fact that you will be able to buy all this hair, a portion of any transaction you make will be given to Wigs for Kids.  You can find more about Hair Affair and their relationship with Wigs for Kids on their blog:

You can start DEMOing NOW! I repeat you can start sampling all these beautifully made hairs NOW if you join the in-world DEMO group.  Here is the group: secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about.  Copy and paste that into your chat and click on Hair Fair Demo Group.  Then, click join.

Bandana Day is 26th of July where we remove our hair to show we care. All bandanas sold at hair fair have been created by Residents all over SL and 100% of sales of those go to Wigs for Kids, and are only available for sale during this event, and destroyed after it ends. They will be transfer, so you can gift them.

Hair Fair opens 11th July closes on the 26th of July!

See you at Hair Fair!!

Portia Skirt


Today, I am featuring an item from Shiny Shabby by Azuchi.  The skirt is available in two fitmesh versions–one has a bit larger waist which could be layered over other items nicely.  The skirt is also materials enabled. To see materials on this skirt, which will make it look more realistic and add high levels of detail, you only need to put your graphics up to mid, make sure advanced lighting and local lights are turned on.  You DO NOT need to push your graphics all the way up to ultra to see materials.  You do not even need your shadows on for that matter.  The skirt comes in beautiful red, black, brown, and purple leather with realistic folds and a detailed belt.

You can also pick up my ice cream cone from Collabor88 by Imeka.  She makes adorable things, and they sure do come in handy for a blogpost as well.  My eyes are made by Song and are called Bio. You can find these stunning eyes at Kustom 9.

Happy shopping!

put the past away



I decided to try out Sweet Lips version two by PXL creations.  I like it better than the first version, but honestly I hadn’t taken my mesh head off in weeks, so I was startled at how I looked, so then adding a mesh part, I am still adjusting to the look of me.  If you are into Sweet Lips and Glam Affair, you should stop by and pick up the Summer V3 skin available at Collabor88 with the Sweet Lips applier.  Mesh parts will always have some shadow cast issues, but it does give you more realistic lips if you aren’t a mesh head fanatic.

Ariskea also has a hair accessory out free for her VIP members. It is stunning. Don’t worry if you are not in the group.  You can pay the very reasonable VIP group fee and still have this beautiful piece.

If you need a gown, I am going to suggest K E L I N I.  The red Indian Dream dress is a beautiful design.  I do wish it was more mesh body friendly, but have found when gowns try to be unique and do things out of the box, they often have to ignore the limits of mesh bodies.  You can see the back of the dress below.  It is sheer, and if wearing a mesh body it does poke through a bit, but not enough for me to personal care.  I even enjoyed a night out at The Chamber in this dress!  …and I might have had some guys message me telling me how beautiful it was even though I was sitting on my boyfriend’s lap, sooooooo it can possibly be a conversation starter!

I am challenging you. Do you accept?

I challenge you, but you have to read it to see if you can do it.

I started blogging not too long ago, but not exactly yesterday, so I know some things, but try to be safe and say….on going learner in practice because I learn so much from all of you.  I know some of us may not be close, so my question might be considered personal, but I’m going to ask it away.  Do you think SL blogs are on there way out?  Do you read them? Or have you navigated over to Flickr and given up your blogosphere?

I have lots of questions as you can see.  I like to be a paradox, so bear with me.  As a consumer, Flickr is nice. You see. You click. You sometimes fave (or perhaps cringe–NSFW pics do that, especially when not prepared).  You even comment.  It seems so easy.  So, can someone tell me why I should blog too?  Most of the amazing blogging community houses their pictures on Flickr, and most of the creators do the same.  AND some creators even acknowledge they don’t look at blogs anymore (source plurk).  Then, there is this new obstacle to become a blogger for an event or a creator: how many flickr favs can you garnish in 24 hours.

I am not really sure how I feel about it. So, I leave it in your hands.  There is no survey. There is no multiple choice quiz. You just have to comment.  Show your influence.  If I get no comments, then why in the world would I use this space. I get more comments on Flickr.  But, if you think blogs have a place still, sound off.  Tell me. Show me.  Do you buy things you find on blogs? Do you visit stores you find on blogs? Are blogs relevant? As someone who recently undertook managing a brand, I understand the need to be everywhere.  It is hard to make a name for yourself, but does it matter if nobody is there?  I am knocking folks. Will you answer?
