Take a Walk in the Park Day

Walk in the Park

Today is National Take a Walk in the Park day. I was greeted by these cute little critters while on a walk in my little park. I’m not sure if the turtle was reading the book or about to eat it. My walk in the park was a magical one. It was a time to relax and think about things in the quiet. You can visit this park on the sim Lo Lo.

Bluebell Tierney / Manicure Monday

Bluebell

Spring fever has caught on here. After a small break I am back to show you the newest releases. The new set from Dust Bunny at The Arcade is named Storybook Living. I feel like Second Life is our storybook life. Where we can live and dream a perfect life.

My new hair style is from Truth called Tierney. The accessory is color change by hud and optional to be worn. The new Neve mesh dress comes in 4 colors per texture set. I chose the Manny set for the paisley print. My poses are from an [lar] poses at Shiny Shabby. I was lucky enough to pick up some great deals on Fifty Linden Friday (FLF). The Glam Affair appliers, ieQED feather ring that I love, and Pure Poison Daria pumps.

Today is Manicure Monday, and I am wearing a really pretty soft colored manicure from Koffin Nails. This set comes with 4 mani/pedi textures and is available for Omega, Slink, and Maitreya. You can find it at the Cosmetic Fair.

Location: Lo Lo (land for rent so this set may not be there for long) Feel free to stop by and visit.

My Silver Fox #GrannyHair / Manicure Monday

Gray Shades (click to enlarge)

Granny hair has been the trend for a bit over a year now. Celebrities are rockin the look. People have been covering up their grays for years. Now it is oddly in style to be gray for the younger generation. The hair color even looks fantastic with color dyed ends. Some people have their hair a darker gray color and others just a bit gray with a dirty blonde look.

What I have learned from friends and the internet:

  1. Make sure your hair is healthy beforehand.
  2. Don’t do this at home. Leave it to the hairdressers.
  3. It might take more than one appointment.
  4. Lots and lots of bleach is involved.
  5. Needs frequent upkeep. The gray doesn’t stay well.

If you want to save your hair from loads of bleach then going gray in Second Life is a safer alternative. And within minutes you can go back to blonde, brunette, or red hair. I’m wearing Mina’s group gift Stella, Truth Hair Arabella and Roux. The silvery gray hair looks great with a little color at the ends. This is a trend that is beautiful and sexy.

Grays at work(click to enlarge)

I checked out a few other hair designers grays. I think Exile has a couple of gorgeous gray hair colors. I’m wearing one from the grayscale pack in this picture. With Lelutka I only saw dark grays, Moon and Elikatira have really nice gray ombre colors. Each stylist has their own version of gray so try demos. Who you go with depends on how gray you want to go.

I found this article with great tips and pics on Buzzfeed for your RL hair.

Today is Manicure Monday. My friend, Gogo, was in need of some latte. Since we’re both huge Tres Blah fans I had just the one she needed. The nail polish is from Livia. I know that I show her nail appliers a lot. This is because she frequently releases new looks and produces a great nail polish.

Chicken Shoes for the Sole / Manicure Monday

Shoes for the Sole

Shoes are one of my weaknesses. I love them almost as much as bags.  Rebel Hope has two new mesh shoes at Tres Chic (shown above top row). Hurry over because the event ends March 10th at noon. The Rebel Hope Jasmine shoe has a leather texture, while the Zalina shoe comes in a reptile texture. Both come in 8 colors and 3 metal choices.

Ingenue made these new heels for the March round of The Arcade (shown above bottom row). The Oksana Heels are available in 16 colors. Each pair that you win will fit the Belleza, Slink, or Maitreya body. It is made to fit by hud. I really love this way of finding shoes to fit your feet. As always, Betty has paid attention to detail on these new heels.

Shoes for the Sole

I went with a white pedicure today since the toes barely show through the end of the Oksana Heel. With Spring here and it getting warmer I think we should get some designs on our toes. I’m wearing the February Group Gift from Livia on Maitreya Lara feet. The Flickr picture shows the design on the toes that is for Slink and Omega. For the Maitreya feet they are only white. I’m happy with that although the added colors are pretty and the ad picture can be misleading.

My bunny and chicks are from The Arcade. The make peep noises that can be turned on or off. And the closet is from Bazar at Relay for Life. I will show this better in another post.

Rental on Lo Lo

Commercial land is for rent on my sim Lo Lo. I’ve owned this sim since 2006 and do not plan on going anywhere. So, if you are looking for a steady home for your main store please contact Caroline Apollo. 1/8 to 1/4 sim available.
