I am wearing the Bandana I made (ok textured) for The 2013 Hair Fair. I love the idea of the vintage fabrics and I actually have a few scarves in these colors in real life. I am not a creator…….lol I must have watched Sasy Scarboroughs’ You Tube video over 50 times (and not just because she has a to-die-for accent either hehe)…….but something finally worked and here it is. There will be so many beautiful bandanas to choose, I usually pick up a handful each year……these are a fantastic replacement of hair when off to high volume events.
I really love the idea of selling one’s own creation for a wonderful cause like ‘Wigs for Kids‘ Just a few months back I was diagnosed with cancer myself, and I met some really wonderful people in certain groups and at the institute. Even though I was one of the lucky ones not to lose my locks during this treatment, I had a sickness the year before that caused me to lose my hair for months. I felt terrible about it, but I looked at it in a SL perspective and went shopping! I bought beautiful hats and learned how to tie long scarves around my head……..as to not see or show what was happening underneath.
I also found out I could make myself useful by teaching others what I had learned. The tears that came to my friends eyes as I whisked them up in a beautiful scarf was probably the most emotional moments for me throughout the last few months. I also delved into researching the cost of wigs and was flabbergasted. Having no control over this disease……….or any other one that takes over your life is bad enough. Losing your hair is something that is so much apart of ones self worth, and is just as traumatic. Then thinking about buying a hair replacement at the same time is not usually something most can handle financially during these times.
Now…..going through what I and millions of others do every day, think of a child, your children, and mine, having to understand what is happening to them….surgeries……treatments…….hospitals……doctors…..medications……..all for the goal of one day hopefully being healthy. I have to say it literally breaks my heart at the thought.
I have participated in the Second Life Hair Fair for many years, this year and last by blogging…..but always by buying up almost every beautiful style I can get……..this year is different for me though, now I will never forget how heartbreaking this can be for anyone……..but even more so for our children.
So let’s all buy some hair and do not forget to grab those Bandana’s that are being sold solely for ‘Wig’s for Kids’…….because on July 28th, the last day of The Hair Fair we all remove our hair to show we care, Bandana’s are a great way to show that you do….It is the best we can do in Second Life to make our children hopefully feel more comfortable about themselves during one of the worst times.
See you soonish

TGIF! I really do love the end of the week………..means no nasty alarms waking me up, or having to drag my 13 year old kidlet out of bed! Summer is almost here! Well I know it’s officially summer now, but I do not count it as summer until my childs last day of school 😉
But in sl we are already celebrating the hot weather months, My Attic at the Deck has just opened and the theme for June is ‘Escape’ and there are so many wonderful items to be had for 95L each. I am so in love with this wonderful Tropical Escape Set from W.Winx& Flair. This Double Towel Set is perfect for hanging out on the beach. The Towels are color change as well as the pillows, this set also includes Tropicana Sunscreen in SPF 10, 30, 50, 100. But the best part are the poses. Not only can you leisurely hang out in style you can also enjoy the many poses that are in the towels themselves. 10 lovely poses are included in each towel, that include lying down all the way to applying lotion to yourself or having a friend or that someone special to apply lotion to you! This is an amazing set available at My Attic at the Deck for an unbelievable price, yes you want these!
I am also wearing a brand new style Veerie from Mina Hair, also at My Attic at the Deck. This long smooth style is magnificently soft and comes in all available colors. The pretty little Three Band One Piece Swimsuit is from Nylon Outfitters and available at Summerfest ’13 in a few different designs. This is a layered swimsuit so I can see wearing this sweet suit under a beach cover up or sarong. I am still in love with Summer from Glam Affair, she is just fabulous and also available in America and Jamaica tones at Summerfest 13 as well. Have you picked up all the pretty Nail Applier Huds from Flair available at The Summer Edition Cosmetic Fair? I just love the pretty little mani’s and pedi’s made specifically for SLink Mesh Avatar Attachments.
Ok I am out for just a small while but I will return as I have so many beautiful items to blog, have a wonderful day and I will…………………..
See you soonish 🙂

Ola! I have some amazing New Releases for you this evening. Summerfest ’13 starts on June 15th, you will be able to enjoy the most adorable event for this season. I am lucky enough to be a blogger for this amazing event…….so I can show what you indeed need to pick up while you are there hehe. There are so many of everyones favorite stores participating………and do not forget to join the Summerfest ’13 Flickr Group.
Let’s start with this fabulous new Ashley Skin from Belleza, my new favorite skin of course. The lovely dusting of freckles has me hooked, Ashley comes in all your favorite Belleza tones and two makeups as well, an instant fav in my book 😉 I am still wearing my dark eyebrows……. cause when I wear blonde brows I think I look washed out for some reason…….but maybe I am just enamored by the contrast of dark brows and light hair. I chose my favorite Wet Lucy hairstyle from Catwa to give her of course -the just hopped out of the water- look.
Now onto the amazing Crochet One Piece from Nylon Outfitters, o m g I love this swimsuit to death! This reminds me of that old movie “10” with Bo Derek….yes showing my age a bit I guess, but all I need is the beaded hair yes? Anywho this Swimsuit comes in many colors and blends and are clothing layers so you can also wear these under a really nice Cover up or a sarong as well. I paired this Crochet One Piece with one of Nylon Outfitters Vintage Portrait Necklaces from the Arcade….these necklaces are just so pretty.
I hope everyone has had a chance to pick up one or two or all of the New Destiny Eyes from Ikon at The Boutique…..I keep going back and grabbing just one more color…….again and again they have such a lovely gleam that works with any skin. The bracelet I picked up from Tabloid, and the amazing pose is from Olive Juice…….who I miss immensely since the close, but not to worry because she has two new pose sets out at Summerfest ’13 for all those that miss this wonderful store as much as I do 🙂
Ok I must sleep……..but I will have more for you to drool over in just a few more hours……..Have a wonderful night and I will…………………………….
See you soonish 🙂

Ola! Now this is a post I was working on before the computer shuffle and it was lost in the crash……but then I found the Mesh Garbo Hat from LeeZu at L’accessoires yesterday and of course having this brand new beautiful Sophia Skin from [PXL] I was only to happy to change it up a bit.
Yes I adore pink….but you already know this right? So when I put on the new Pia Mesh Skirt in Baby Pink, I was in lust. LeeZu can always put a wonderful twist on all her items which makes them totally different from anything else on the grid. This time it is the red flap inlay at the top of this gorgeous pencil skirt with flare at the bottom. There are many colors available and they are all just as beautiful, which brings me to this fabulous Mesh Garbo Hat also from LeeZu, this beauty is color change so you can match them with all your outfits. The open-work on the Garbo is amazing…..giving you a tiny glimpse of the outer or inner depending on how you look at it…….this also features the fabulous red inlay and is perfect for all occasions.
Now onto Sophia, I have been waiting for this release since the Around the World Event pre-release of her last year. I absolutely adore her. Sophia is made a bit differently than Harts’ other skin releases, she actually comes with her lipsticks built onto her so you do not have the added expense of purchasing them separately. But for you makeup layer lovers out there you still have a wonderful selection of Eye Shadow Layers to mix and match with. Hart has also made three new Wrath Eye Makeups to choose from and I love these……I did a post not so long ago on the Seven Deadly Sins Gacha Kate Skins Wrath Version here, and now they come in layers and I am so happy with this….I just love flared eye makeup. I am wearing Sophia in Natural Tone Fade Lips with the Cyclamen Eyes Makeup Layer but there are eight tones in all to choose from with many eyeshadow layers, so something for everyone.
Also as I was taking these photos I received the notecard on the VIP [PXL] 25% off Sale on all the new Sophia Skins, remember to wear your VIP Group tag and purchase the lovely Sophia for 25% off. There is a small fee to join [PXL] Creations VIP Group but after doing so teleport up to the VIP Room and pick up the amazing Spring Sophia VIP Group gift skin which I am wearing here. This Sophia VIP Sale is only for a 48 hour period which started at midnight of the 19th so hurry!!!! Also do not forget to pick up the amazing [PXL] SLink Avatar Enhancement Hand & Foot Appliers, these are amazing and a one touch match to all your favorites tones from [PXL].
Along with a few of my very favorite things I bring you my pink post for the week. I hope you all enjoy your Friday and I shall…………………………………….
See you soonish 🙂

Shades of grey wherever I go,
The more I find out the less I know.
Black and white is how it should be,
But shades of grey are all I see.
Ola! I know I have not been here much, but sometimes you just have to give in to real life. I will not go into the sordid details but I have been dealt a hefty blow. I can normally shut off and come into sl and forget, but I find myself staring listlessly at the screen with my thoughts elsewhere for hours at a time. I have no intentions of leaving sl, I am just breaking when I need to, I hope everyone understands 🙂
I have been wearing this amazing Scarf Poncho from LeeZu the last little while. I love that LeeZu made different versions of the Scarf Poncho and just in time for spring. These beauties can be dressed up or down and come in amazing designs and colors as well. I have some really amazing things to show off in spring style but my land being covered in snow presented a problem hehe, and then I walked out the door last night and voila there is grass! I am very excited about decorating my small piece of sl for the upcoming season, as it will not be spring where I live for a few more months. I think not only a fresh look but a project to work on will make me feel better as well.
I hope everyone has had a chance to visit the TDR Fusion for this round. I picked up the most amazing Thursday Skin from Essences there. Thursday comes in three delectable tones to choose from. I think this is my ultimate favorite skin from Essences to date.
Along with of course a few of my favorites items I bring you my Sunday look, I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful day and I will…………
See you soonish 🙂
