Summer Nights

Yay! Hair Fair 2014 is on it’s way!!! I am so excited, 2 weeks of yummy brand new styles from the grids most amazing designers…….I get such a warm and mushy feeling when Hair Fair is near! I am wearing my favorite hair of all, this is Nanda from Mina and she is the softest side braid I own. Whenever I wear this style I turn into a romantic, and what’s not more romantic than a summer night? This is my first entry into the Official Hair Fair Photo Contest………..but I will let you read on ūüôā

We are about to begin the Official Hair Fair Photo Contest for Hair Fair 2014. The contest starts on the 9th of June and ends on the 23rd of June. You can upload up to 8 entries.

Theme:

This years theme is *Music*. Be as creative as you like, feel free to include other people in your shots.

This years contest will run from the 9th Р23rd of June 2014

*No Nudity or sexually suggestive images, this is a charity event to raise money for Children. Naked/revealing photos that the committee deem inappropriate will not be accepted. The committee’s say on this is final.

Be creative, but remember we are looking for pictures that focus on the hair and you.

Just remember this isn’t an advertisement but a tribute to hair that you love.

Don’t get too carried away, though; we want to be able see the hair!

It's the Way That You Love Me

It's the Way that You Love Me

Hai there! I took a small much needed break away, with trying to get my kidlet ready for the second round of camp, as well as back to school gear, kept my time limited for the last week or so. But I have these amazing clothes and of course a new set from What Next to show off.

The wonderful and pretty Mesh Damask Jeans are a new release from One Bad Pixel, I am crazy over these jeans as I am a lover of damask and would so love to have these in real life! There are many gorgeous colors to choose from…….so yes it was hard for me to choose……I would suggest a fatpack¬†only hehe! I have paired them with some very pretty items I picked up at the 2 year Anniversary of Collabor88. The soft Elizabeth Hair with the gorgeous hair piece is so wonderful. The amazing Marilyn Pearls from Deco and of course the new Mesh Norma Tank from Decoy. Glam Affair has this amazing Katya Skin out in tones Pale and Jamaica. I am wearing her in America as I picked up this¬†tone at the last round of The Boutique, but I love Katya in any tone as she is just beautiful!

What Next has this amazing Mesa Living Room Set out for the new round of The Garden, this set is a must have. You can buy the chairs in singles as well and they have the most wonderful animations, Eight of each Male and Female animations in all. The Lights turn on and off and you can even change the photo texture on the magazine in the magazine rack. The rug is also included, there are two different versions of this wonderful set. I am wearing the new Glitter Peeptoe¬†Add-on to SLink’s¬†fabulous Medium Avatar Advancement Feet, these are such a fabulous set of heels that I am thinking I need more colors yes? hehe

There is a new Nail Salon Opening up at the Baiastice¬†Main Store, Nailed It has many fabulous new Mani and Pedi’s for the new SLink Avatar Advancement Mesh Hands and Feet, check them out if you love this endearing little detail that completes every outfit!

I have a few more posts I am working on so I will definitely be back soon! Have a wonderful Friday and I will certainly

Hi there! I did a post like this for Hair Fair 2012 and I found it really helped me decide on which style to choose from. I remember staying up all night after cruising around the Hair Fair and cramming like I would have back in college lol. This year there was not time to do it earlier……but I have been working on this for a few days now. These are my picks for the 2013 Hair Fair, of course I can always add to this post as well…………just in case I do not have enough hair yes?! ūüėČ

Some of these styles are tried and true designers that I love, some are new to me as well. I have eleven sets in all and ten styles per set……….that is a lot of hair I know, but I am just a tad obsessed……..maybe!? hehe Since the beginning of my sl I have had such a love for all the pretty hairstyles. This has quietly become my passion, ok maybe not so quietly when I post like this.

All in all………….the Hair Fair is my favorite event of the year and I wait eagerly for it’s arrival. I am so happy to have been included in this fabulous event for the last two seasons, and am thankful for being chosen to do so. Hair is such an important asset in how we look at ourselves, in real life as well as second life. But here we are very much fashion oriented and need different styles for different outfits, and Hair Fair is a one stop shop for all the amazing designers to show off their talent.

Now of course the most important aspect of the Hair Fair is that every sale gives a portion¬†of the money collected to Wigs for Kids, I think this is such a wonderful charity. We help children through very hard times and sickness……….there is no better reason than this to shop like crazy. I may buy a lot of hair, but for this amazing charity anything goes.

I will have a cut in this post this year…….so if you are looking for more…………..check that cut. I am showing all these beautiful locks¬†so you can see exactly how these styles¬†will look inworld. I tend to sit up on my platform and commiserate with all my loot (inserts wicked little laugh here), so this is a way to show it all off at once what might take me a few weeks to blog. I hope you enjoy the post! Oh and all credits are located at the bottom.

Have a wonderful night or day and I will be back with more 2013 Hair Fair goodness…………………………………….See you soonish ūüôā

Seems Like Everything I See Reflects the Love That Used To Be

TGIF! I think I have had about 2 good hours of sleep today so I will¬†make it short and sweet. Summerfest¬†’13 is really going to rock your socks, the build is so wonderfully whimsical and quaint that I want to spend all my time here. Today I am wearing a brand new Sunhat¬†and Pool Side Shades from Yummy……they come in a bunch of wonderful colors to choose from. I just adore this Mesh Zanza Halter and Tube Top Combo from Decoy that I had to pair it with the very pretty Mesh Laurie Low Waist Hi-Low Skirt from Tee*fy. Both available in a wide range of colors and designs to pick from.

Another lovely Summer Lookbook Pose from Olive Juice,¬†along with a¬†few of my favorite things ties this outfit together wonderfully, I can almost feel the slight breeze from the beach………….ok I am out for a bit…….going to relax a tad before my boys get home……….Have fun and I will……………..

Ola! I am still working my way through my FaMESHed folder. Today I am wearing the most wonderful mesh Elisa Dress from Decoy. I just love the jewelled collar to this fabulous dress. I have paired it with the two-toned Lea Pumps also from Decoy which are available in the main store.

The Mayim updo of course from Truth, although a tad bit older (but not by much) seemed to just show off this incredible neckline. Of course I am still wearing the new Amberly skin from Glam Affair…..this time without freckles (which I love).

I always love new releases from The Mens Dept. so I visit regularly when the new collection rolls around, this time I picked up this fabulous Rope Suspended Gallery and a few other photos which I am sure you will see shortly ūüėČ

Ola, yes again so soon! But the Hottie Cooterati Cinema Event ends soon and I really wanted to post this beauty of a Liason Chemise dress from Volstead, a brand new store to me that I rather adore! Events like the Cinema engage all of us to look around, find new designers that we didn’t know before. I love that all the theaters had themes, but without fabulous events like these we may have been missing out on some really rather fantastic clothing!

The amazing Mint Hair from Analog Dog screamed at me to be worn, pulled together with some fantabulous new jewelry and this amazing new Donna skin from Mojo Skins, I went for the Peach tone this time and I am in lust with this soft and lovely skin. Scrumptious!!!!

This fabulous mesh Gold Butterfly mesh dress from Volstead comes with two pieces, the regular dress and a mesh overlay top, it is very lovely indeed and made a very good impression as I will be watching Volstead (a new store to me) and waiting for new releases!
