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.

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.

 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.

Just What I Needed (1)

Just What I Needed (2)

Just What I Needed (3)

Books! I have to say I have missed them so…..ok not in sl but in rl. I was given the gift of an e-reader for my birthday and I am so happy about it. Having had several operations on my eyes, I am still what is considered legally blind…….oh you didn’t know that huh? Yes that’s right…..I am a blogger that has the worst eye sight around, but being in between more fixes I have not been able to read a book in two whole years…….and coming from someone who could read a novel in a night or two…….something was definitely missing in my life. As a blogger I have a huge 17″ notebook(thank gawd my husband loves me) that sits just far enough away on my lap that I can squint to see……..to edit, to write and to read even my posts are hard……but whatcha going to do, stop doing what you love? No you learn to adapt. So when I hear comments of photos that are mediocre (and yes I have heard that a few times) I simply turn the other cheek and try to not think about it to much……..cause if you don’t like it why look yes? 😉

Anyways I am getting carried away from this post yes? lol The lovely Bela from TuttiFrutti has made these fabulous mesh Narcissa Jacket and Leggings in some pretty amazing textures, so’s I love them. I am wearing this outfit in Casino, but there are more wonderful textures to choose from. This set is out for My Attic at the Deck, I have added in the most beautiful Ploom style Mortimer, gawd I just love the color of this long style to death. Mortimer is also out for this round of My Attic.

Now onto these very sexy heels. MIAMAI has these all sewn up, literally hehe, I think lust would be a fantastic way to put it……Lust after these and nab them at Shoetopia before it ends on Saturday. The wonderful Book Poses are from Sari-Sari and available at the Geeks’n’Nerds Fair. A new event that has the most amazing designers in it…….go now!!!!!

Along with a few of my favorite things another gorgeous Monday look emerges.  I have more coming your way so stay tuned, oh yeah and if anyone ever tells you something you really don’t think you need to hear in either life…….just walk away…….ok ok maybe give them the finger and then leave hehe

Have a wonderful night and I will certainly……………………………………………………………………….See you soonish 🙂

In Dreams I Walk With You

Ola! I know it’s been awhile….a few weeks ago I was having dinner with the husband……and me being my klutzy self……..hit my funny bone on my chair. Sounds about right except that evening turned into a few weeks of pain due to pinching nerves, yes plural omg I have never pinched a nerve in my whole life……all I can say is ouch……..left my right arm pretty much useless lol. So I just lazed around caught up on my Breaking Bad and such. I realized I was needing a short break anyway.

I seem to be on a sepia kick at the moment as well. Loved the idea of an older movie look when I unpacked this fabulous outfit from Baiastice (available at The Boutique) The Mesh Cigarette Trousers are amazing as well as the Luis Sleeveless Shirt which is also available in many colors as well as duotone like this one in Black and White.

Next came the fabulous Frankie Panama Hat Café Noir, with hair/hat color controlled hud……love this! The pretty I’m Leafing Earrings are from {Cherry}, Flair - Nail Hud Add Ons both types Included Set 134grab these at L’accessoires! My Evana Ring is from Ben’s Beauty and available in silver or gold. Flair has new nails out and I have quite a beautiful collection but these are the latest, and I love them to death.

Now onto the ultra goodness of new N-core heels!!!! These are rightfully named Sublime and yes they are! The hud that comes with these shoes is just as wonderful, you can change parts of the shoe in many different colors……and of course there is that wonderful online correlated hud for all your favorite skins…….I think I am becoming maybe a little lazy about tinting hands and especially feet. Seems so long ago that I horribly matched my feet manually, which of course we can now gladly take the guess-work away and hit a hud, or an applier 🙂 These shoes are fantastic spiky goodness that everyone needs!

Ok……I am out for awhile, I have so much more to blog and I will be back to do that!

See you soonish 🙂

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?! 😉

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 🙂

Miamai 2013 Hair Fair Preview (3)

Miamai 2013 Hair Fair Preview (4)Hiya……..I am back again with a Brand New Beautiful Release from Miamai. Loroi is an amazing updo that actually incorporates the hair into the wonderful flower petals that sit on top of this lovely style. She comes with a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the flowers and the pearls that sit inside of them. This is a material ready style that actually looks soft and has the texture of real hair. This is one stop you must make when The 2013 Hair Fair opens to the public. There are many more styles that I will blog a little later, that are just as beautiful as Loroi.

I am wearing this fabulous style with Milk Motions brand new Lace Dress available at Collabor88. I fell in love with the white color as soon as I rezzed. I know this is a fabulous little number as I am seeing it all over the feeds, this is a total winner for the season! While at Collabor88 I also picked up this amazing LuLu skin from Glam Affair……I just love the dreamy look of the blue eye shadow and pale lips. Along with my favorite Destiny Eyes from Ikon and wonderful Singapore Sling earrings from Maxi Gossamer…………oh and new Nails from Flair………Sasy has been a busy lady these past weeks…..be sure to check out all of her Nail Applier Huds for your SLink Avatar Advancement Hands and Feet!

Ok I am off for just a bit…………but I will return soon as I am sitting in Hair Heaven and I cannot believe how many wonderful styles available to be had at this years Hair Fair!

See you soonish 🙂
