Make Me

Make Me

Hi! I know I’ve been gone for a long while, I’m still recuperating from surgery and my internet has been the shite lately. We also moved during this time, so I have been slowly making it back to my beloved sl. Now I really wanted to blog but with my ping at 114 and speeds at 12, I have not been able to work on Ultra or even High graphics. But I still took a few photos last month anyway in lower graphics……….oh no she didn’t!  lol This one I am going to post anyway yes?

These newer items were for last months Collabor88, so I’m a tad behind but I am sure you can go into each store and nab these items if you haven’t already. I was actually pretty fed up with my cable company the last few months with horrible internet speeds, having them out 8 times to fix my lines, then actually being told to go to a competitor at the end. Then we ended up switching condos in February(same area) and having an awesome tech who came out and could not believe what was happening to a 15 year ongoing customer, and fixing me right up to better than today’s speed standards. I felt like crap for a while and didn’t want to stand up and argue and get pissed. So I had it in my head that I was done with this company if my service continued to this extent. I took this photo the night before the change and even though I stood there the next day and told the very nice and very forgiving tech ( :/) off, I stood my ground and felt so good about myself that I saved this photo with thoughts of  ‘screw you, make me!’  lol Sometimes it’s the little battles that matter the most yes? Don’t take any shit ever 🙂  hmmm unless you’re the tech of the person who’s been paying for top of the line speeds and is getting the shaft…….then maybe it’s ok 😉

See you soonish 🙂

AD-Damselfly444Good Morning! I have been up for over 34 hours lol and I’m on my 8th pot of coffee, so I am wired for sound in an over-tired hair whirlwind. But I have been working hard on trying to accomplish my yearly Hair Fair post of some of the most luscious locks to be had on the grid. I love hair! Of course you cannot tell hmmmm? I love that I can use this post to look for specific styles all year-long and revel in hair goodness. At the 10th Annual Hair Fair all styles bought gives a percentage to ‘Wigs for Kids’. You can also buy many scrumptious Bandanas or give to the Donation kiosks throughout the sims. Every linden counts as amazing gratitude to ‘Wigs for Kids’ and the most talented designers on the grid, so hop to it and shop shop shop!

Another Turning Point, A Fork Stuck In The Road

Another Turning Point, A Fork Stuck In The Road Ola, as I walk through Effington Woods, my abode for the last two and a half years, I cant help but feel a little sentimental. A wondrous and beautiful sim, always so pretty and done up so well, it’s so hard to believe that this is one of my last days here. Effington Woods which houses the Cool Beans Coffee House along with the sister sim of Hyacinth Lake that houses the Cool Beans Gacha Yardsale, all part of Cool Beans Estates, is being sold.

I know I shall be a little lost in dealing with the change, this has become my home. Somewhere I can escape to, somewhere to do anything I liked, within reason of course, but nothing a little slap on the wrist wouldn’t cure when I was misbehaving lol. All in all Sean (current owner) has made me feel totally comfortable the last few years and that is hard to lose as well. A few weeks ago I asked for a little beach on my land and even though he had to give a quarter of the sim some beach along with me having a small one, he did it anyway just to make his pain in the butt blogging friend happy. I’m pretty sure he is like that with everyone on each sim.

Change is always hard, especially when you are settled into a comfortable spot. But I do wish Sean well and want to thank him so much for the time I was allowed to share with him, the hours of fantastic and warm conversation and the shared love of all the amazing shopping events that he loves just as much as I do.

I am sure to come across another home sim someday, but Effington was worth all the while for me and will not be forgotten.

Have an amazing night and I shall ……………………………………………….. see you soonish 🙂

Summer Nights

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 🙂

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. Each and every store listed below is awarding prizes to 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners (that is a huge prize pool!) so tell all your friends, start taking wonderful pictures and show us how you can best show off your hair.

Theme:

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

*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.

New Photos Only

Photos submitted to this pool must be new photos. Photos older than the start of the contest will not qualify. Photos used for other contests, memes, blog posts or promotions will not be accepted — if they are accepted into the pool but we find out that they are/were used for something else they will be removed. If you want to blog your entry, that is allowed — as long as it is a blog post explaining that it is your entry into the  Hair Fair 2014 Photo Contest

Editing

Feel free to enhance your shot in the photo editing software of choice. As you do, please remove any vendors or store logos that may be in the image. Just remember this isn’t an advertisement but a tribute to hair that you love. Also be aware that we wont be judging your photos on how little or much you know of PS or GIMP, rather the feel of the picture and the capture itself. Don’t get too carried away, though; we want to be able see the hair!

Only backgrounds from Second Life, or created in photoshop or an editing program are allowed. No RL images to be used in or as your photos, such as morphing or locations.

The text can only be lyrics to a song – in part or whole, and NO Sexually Explicit, Degrading, Racist or Hate Speech song lyrics allowed. This is a Charity Event for a Childrens’ Charity, so anything found to be unacceptable will not be approved.

While text is allowed, still remember that this is a photo contest, and we want to be able to see your Hair and Avatar clearly. Text should not overwhelm the image.

 Sizes

This year any size is acceptable. Please try and make sure that photos are larger than 512×512 or they will not look as good as you want them to, and may effect judging.

You must have full ownership rights to the photo you are entering. If it was taken by someone else, then you must be allowed to use it in this manner. Check with the photographer before entering because any disputes of ownership of a photo will result in removal from the contest.

Entrants are limited to a total of 8 entries. Enter only your very best photos, as swapping out will not be allowed. We will be keeping track of who enters what, and swapping out your photos after submission will result in your disqualification. We want to make it fair to everyone.

The Elegance Continues

SLink Visage Becky

SLink Visage Emma

Ola! I hope everyone has had the chance to run over to SLink and grab the very elegant and beautiful mesh Visage Becky and Emma Heads. I was so excited to play with these for the last couple of days. They both come with a wonderful skin/makeup hud as well as an amazing expression hud. Since I have been playing away and learning the ropes I thought I should finally get a post out and share these wonderful creations. I know we have the mesh eyelid from Siddean, then came the hands and feet that I usually do not go without, now we have beautiful heads to work with. These come with the afore-mentioned huds but also with five different modifiable shapes. I am wearing one now, also with three different skin tones that change your whole body including your SLink hands and feet at a simple one touch……there is also a very helpful notecard detailing what your sliders should be at to accommodate the eyes and shape of the head if you decide to use your own shape. Oh and I also forgot the Alpha’s included. If you are wearing SLink Hands, Feet and the new Visage Head in either version, your alpha now can include all three amazing products in one layer! Yay for more layer abilities!

While I was away SLink West opened up, where you can go and shop for all the fantastic SLink Applied Nails, Cosmetics, Shoes and Accessories, over 60 of your favorite stores are there……I could just go and plunk myself in a cafe chair and shop my fool head off for days! We also have some really wonderful stores already creating Visage Head Appliers for the newest Becky and Emma Heads. I nabbed Izzie’s Macy Applier in Pale and oh my goodness she is just gorgeous! You can either just buy the Head Applier Macy Base which includes the top hud I am showing, includes two skins one with and without cleavage and a modifiable shape. This hud has eyebrow and hairbase colors, you can wear without the hairbase but I am happy to see it included as I usually wear one. You also have the option of picking your eyebrow color for the closed eye version with of the heads main hud, and four sumptuous lip options. Then there is a separate Makeup hud which has many luscious lip stick and glosses as well as many eyeliner and eye shadow options (the lower hud shown) Macy is just cute as a button! <–see what I did there 😉

Izzie's Applier & Makeup Hud for SLink Visage Mesh Head (Becky)I was so happy to see that Curio also has a beautiful SLink Emma Head Applier, I was just over to Curio last week grabbing up some of Galas’ newest skins. Wearing a Curio skin to me is like seeing an old friend you have not talked to in years or donning one of your most favorite comfortable sweaters. As I slipped on the SLink Visage Emma Head and hit the Applier hud from Curio that is the exact feeling I had, pure beauty and oh so fabulous. You must try her out! I am wearing her in the Cloud tone, and as you can see by the hud she includes your four eyebrow colors with the base skin, different eye makeups in each as well as six different cheek choices and yes there are freckles. Of course finishing her off with six different to die for Lipsticks. She is just so yummy I could eat her up.

Curio Applier for SLink Visage Emma Head

I have chosen to go with Ikon’s most wonderful mesh Promise Eyes in Hazel, which include the most wonderful hud to change sizes or highlight these knock out eyes. I love that Ikon has also included eye positions as well……saves me from wearing another hud hehe. There are more SLink Visage Head Appliers to follow, I nabbed Adam & Eve’s Demo a few days ago and I will definitely be going back for that one. Ploom and DeeTaleZ also have Appliers as well…….with even more to follow I am sure. The SLink Visage Mesh Emma and Becky Head’s are such amazing creations that can be shared with all skin makers, as I have a few more favorites I am excitingly watching and waiting for!

I hope I have enticed you for this evening and will be back very soon with more beautiful items, there is the Skin Fair 2014 I still have to sneak into and The Liaison Collaborative is also coming up in just a few short days…….so I will be busy working away on all the wonderful newness there is to come!

Have a wonderful evening (or day) and I will certainly………………………………….. See you soonish 🙂
