Time For the 2014 Hair Fair Photo Contest, Summer Nights

Hair Fair 2014 - Photo Contest - ENTER NOW

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.


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 – 23rd 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.

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


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.


Because of this years theme being “Music” you may use text on your images if you wish to. 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.


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.

 Entering Photos

Photos may only be entered once, and only the person entering the photo is eligible to win. The same photo may not be entered by more than one person. 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.

In The Stillness Of Remembering

In the Stillness of Remembering (1)

In the Stillness of Remembering (2)

Good Morning! I was up at the crack of dawn, yes really lol, so I can get busy on some wonderful previews from Wanderlust Fashion for Life which opens on June 7th and runs until June 20th. Fashion for Life benefits The American Cancer Society, and what an amazing way to show your support of something that touches all of us in one way or another.

There are ten full magnificently built sim’s to explore and of course shop until you drop for the greatest of all causes, cancer research and support. There are many things to do and see at Fashion for Life. You can gacha it up, play the Passport Game, just nab your info/hud packet when you teleport in. There is also wonderful information to read and entertainment………and of course you will be able to walk around the beautifully made sim’s and shop until you drop.

You will see that each designer has Relay for Life Vendor(s) up in each location, I will be providing you with an individual slurl list when Fashion for Life opens to the public. Each designer is donating 15-100% of their profits to Relay for Life, The American Cancer Society. This is a global cause and every bit helps us closer to our goal of a cure. I am linking you directly to the Fashion for Life Blog, there are many stories to read, experiences and of course designer and event information.

As a survivor I  published my journey a few days back, which you can read here, I also wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful support, comments and compliments I have received, this has meant the world to me! It helps to share my experience with some that may be thinking the same way I did at first, alone, lost, weak, ashamed and complete despair. If I didn’t have such strong support in rl and sl I’m not sure I would have made it out. Hope is all we have, so sharing is a necessity.

First up I am wearing the most amazing new mesh Drew Gown in Cream and Lilac, a Fashion for Life Exclusive from Purple Moon Creations, who is also a Champion Sponsor for this event. Purple Moon is by far one of the most elegant and loved designers on the grid, so make sure to look for the wanderlust-fullness from them!

Ok I will be back with more fabulous previews, for now enjoy your morning and I will……

See you soonish 🙂

You Are Not Alone, My Journey

FFL 512 poster

Wanderlust means youthful dreams to me…….traveling without consequence, no specific destination just wherever you end up, is where you should be. As a child you imagine your life to be so grandiose, you will visit distant lands, become accustomed to many cultures and will be always on the path of greatness.

As an adult sometimes you can make this actually come true, and then in one softly spoken minute all your dreams and desires can come crashing down on you in complete horror. This happens to so many, and no matter how many stories I read or have been told in confidence, or have lived through, I still tear up even today. I am going to wear my heart on my sleeve now and share my journey. Yes I am making that crossover between sl and rl which is terrible to some, but even though we know each other as avatars, we are all real people behind them yes? We make them who they are, and trust me as terrified as I was to hit the publish button on this post, I think I am strong enough to deal with whatever may come from it.

As a young girl I lost my mother to a brain aneurysm before my teens, my wonderful grandparents became my care givers. I slid into my mums spot in their lives, as they moved solidly in to close ranks around me. When I was sixteen my grandfather was diagnosed with Colon Cancer, within a year it had spread and we lost him. Five years later my rock, my stronger than strong grandmother was diagnosed with Liver Cancer. I was at home and helped care for both until the end. My uncle helped out tremendously with my grandmother as I quickly became a solid mess. Losing her was something I didn’t handle well. She was my rock, she was a complete spitfire, she herself would say she is full of piss and vinegar so you better get used to it. She was a fighter.

I was married just before she died and she walked me down the aisle, I will never forget how proud she was of me, she danced all evening and stayed to the end. Simply put, she was my hero. I was then and even now sometimes a total mess and miss her dearly.

Life happened in the mean time and I tried my hardest to live by her motto of ‘Don’t tell me I can’t because I can, and don’t tell me not to, because I will’ Just a few years ago my small family moved to a new city, within weeks I was sick, I went through a multitude of medical testing. I poofed out as if I had an allergic reaction, however there wasn’t a doctor around that could figure out why my throat closed up and I looked like a human pincushion, which landed me in the ER multiple times each week. Things started to go wrong, I had developed cataracts at age 40, then my gallbladder needed to be taken out. These are all things as you get older most will go through, but it was like lighting a match in a book of matches, one thing directly after another. I lost most of my hair, I gained weight and then lost it just as fast. Then I woke up one day just over a year ago and everything had stopped, no more hives that covered my entire body, no more epipen’s, steroids or reactine or any of the other medication that every doctor was trying on me. It was definitely the calm before the storm……….
