8 Years Old & I Must Be……………………………

I Must Be ........... (1)

I Must Be ........... (2)

Yes, it’s that time of year again, my rez day has come and almost gone, I often wonder if I have gone seriously ’round the bend most days lol. I mean 8 years is an awfully long time, like a permanent relationship with not only sl but with Evion as well. I honestly hadn’t any idea what Second Life was all about the day I logged in for a few minutes to check out this world, but if CSI New York was in this land……I thought I would investigate. I knew not what I was up against while trying to solve a TV show murder, the friends I would meet, the time I would spend hopping from lucky chair to midnight mania, to becoming a fashionista with a blog! It’s been a fabulous journey though that I still enjoy 8 years later, I guess that says it all.

I still giggle with glee when opening up special packages, Like this fantastic new Halloween Makeup Skin with a set of Creepy Circle Eyes from Hart over at [PXL], there are 6 different versions to nab over at Wayward Carnival, they are all so very rich with detail and can only be worn with your own avatar head. SLink not only released a brand new body today(post coming later) Grab these hot Thigh High Boots made specifically for your Physique Body. I will definitely be walking all over you with more colors to come, these are sexy and I know you want them, so when checking out the newest Hourglass Physique Body………Don’t forget these Boots!!!

Ok I should hit the sack (said with a very sad face) as tomorrow is another damn day for me to celebrate and continue on with another damn sl blog yes?!!

Have a wonderful night and I shall definitely…………………………………………….. see you soonish 🙂

It's Funny How We Feel So Much, But Cannot Say A Word

It’s been awhile, I think I was having a bit of a block, with a touch of sadness due to a wonderful friend being gone as well, I will forever miss your pokes. I’m just writing to write today, trying to get over the slump. So I’m posting a photo of some very pretty ‘not so new releases’ that I really love and just going with it. I do have a few new releases coming your way in the next day or two, for now I shall go back to purging my overstuffed suitcase, but I will definitely see you soonish 🙂

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.

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 – 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

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.

 Text

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.

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.

Ola! Happy Happy Thursday…..almost TGIF! I have a few things to say today with a heavy heart. I will be stepping away from my beloved blog come February the 23rd or so as I am scheduled for surgery. It’s a major one and I will be in hospital for about a week. I would like to give myself a few weeks before I return to just take it easy, although they say 6 months is normal…….blah. During this time (of course ’cause everything has to happen all at once) I will possibly be moving to a different province as my Sig O. has applied for a transfer. Gawd help me lol……not sure how this is all going to turn out, but I’m sure we will make it work somehow. I will be sending out notices to my wonderful friends and designers closer to that date so it’s not like I have just disappeared. During all that I am sure to be back quickly as SL is my comfort zone, I use the program to step away from the crazy and relax. I am sure I will not be gone too long!

Ok enough of the gritty and one to the nitty! I am of course wearing a wonderful assortment of clothing from Collabor88. Belleza…Yummy…..Junebug and Ison are just a few of the amazing designs available at this months round, you only have about a few more days (almost a week) to get these amazing designs so hurry!

Catwa has new wonderful styles out…..Sandy being one of my favorites. The Furniture is from The Loft and is a group gift. I am always so thankful for all the wonderful gifts that are given out in each group and always have to cringe when someone gets in a group chat and demands a group gift lol. You know……”I paid this much money to get in this group now where’s my gifts!” or ” I am giving up a group slot….now give me something” ugh please there are quite a few of us that are in groups because we love the designs! Not to mention some do not understand the word ‘Gift’. No! Say it isn’t so! I await for the pouncing to begin within seconds before I shake my head and silently hit the red X on the chat. Which can be a bit of a bummer as some of the groups I am in are fun and have great people to yak at!

Hanaya has brand new spring Daffodils out that I could not resist posting immediately. They come in all different sizes and are just so pretty. I love that spring has already sprung for others even though in my area of the world and some southerners are still in the midst of winter. The newest round of Enchantment is almost upon us! The theme is Red Riding Hood and there are so many wonderful things to be had! I am wearing a pretty new Enchanting Red’s Medallion Ring from Bokeh, there are many colors to choose as well as a matching necklace that has three separate lengths. What I also love about this ring as I opened the box there was an Avatar Advanced version! Yay no editing involved at all……as I am so lazy I think this is an amazing idea! 😉

This round of Enchantment opens on Feb 1st, now I would suggest joining the Enchantment In-World Group beforehand, Group members get 12 hour earlier admission into the event as it opens at Midnight. If not you will have to wait until 12 noon on Saturday to see this wonderful event! I will be posting a map as well as the slurl to Enchantment when the event opens! I am such a big fan of this type of showcase and the sim is gorgeous as well as the Little Red Riding Hood Merchandise to buy!

Now onto the best part of my post! Do you own the fabulous Quinn Kneehighs Boots from SLink? You know the sculpty version of the boots I am wearing? Yes? Then run do not walk over to SLink and hit that update board because Siddean has remade the Quinn Kneehighs in Mesh and if you own the sculpty version you get the mesh version update for free!!! Not only that, they now fit (Add-on) the amazing brand new SLink High Avatar Advanced Feet! Yes you need those to wear this version and even if you do not own this particular version of boot yet, the mesh Quinn Kneehigh Boot Add-on’s are being sold at a very low discounted price (only 350L a pair) for the next four days or so. I would suggest grabbing these amazing boots quickly before they go up to regular price! Go forth and drool all over the beautiful textures and lovely colors of this wonderful boot. Now you can match your skins and paint your toenails all pretty and so much easier with this classic SLink Avatar Advanced Add-on Style!

Ok of I go to edit and write-up another post! I shall return, until then have a wonderful day and I will

See you soonish 🙂

I have caved and switched over to the Official Second Life Viewer……….Can you see my excitement?! lol!

That Brisk Winter Walk

Winter Walk (1)

Winter Walk (2)

A brisk winter walk to clear the air, sometimes when someone has said something or done something you just do not quite agree with, it is time for that wonderful walk that prevents you from barking back and making a total fool of yourself…….even if the other has already gone there. The winter air clears the mind and makes you wonder why you would get your panties in a knot in the first place, just because someone else has decided it is so?! No, not a good enough reason at all……..anyways there I go making friends again yes? 😉

There are only a few hours left to bask in My Attic at the Deck loveliness, this round of ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ is almost over, I just love this event in spades as everything is 95L or less, and the amazing designers that come out each round and serve up fabulous items for so little is absolutely phenomenal……..plus it helps that these are some of my most favorite designers.

I am wearing a fabulous Thick Long Wool Sweater Dress from DeeTaleZ…..which I so want right now in real life to combat the freezing temperatures hehe, there are a few different colors to choose from as well. This amazing Snow Cardinals Winxbox is out and includes 6 wonderful poses, but the beauty of the WinxBox is not only Shadowplay but you can move things around inside and use your own poses too. I am using a pose from CnS e-motion inside for my walk tonight, which is also available at My Attic at the Deck. But get there quickly before this round is over.

I am trying out a Isis, a new Lara Hurley Skin I picked up for the Black Friday Skin Addiction Event, and I really love her, she is soft and almost beguiling and seems she has secrets to share.

I am out for a few hours but I shall return with more gorgeous newness, until then…………………………….See you soonish 🙂
