Wedding Day Tears

Wedding Day

I was scrolling through Plurk the other day, and I saw someone thank Daeberethwen Arbenlow for her tutorials. I love learning how to take better pictures and how to touch them up. So, I went to her YouTube channel to check out her videos. I must have watched five of them that night. I highly recommend her videos. She has easier ways of going about things and really great tips on photography. Thank you, Daeberethwen!

Two Years Ago..

Two years ago ..
(click picture to view on Flickr)

July marks 2 years of this fashion blog. I have been in Second Life since 2003, but was a content creator 10 years. I have seen improvement in my pictures and blogging as I continue to grow. Hopefully we can all hang out a good while longer. One thing I recently started doing on and off is using the profile picture in Second Life. Have you ever used yours? In the Firestorm viewer you select Upload to Profile from your snapshot viewer.

Hair Fair ends July 31. Some of the sales proceeds go to Wigs for Kids. I always try a new-to-me hair designer each year. Stealthic is new to Second Life since 2014, and her first hair style on Flickr is January 2016. Her hairstyles have a soft to touch look. The one I am wearing is called Vapor. I love the look. July 31 is bandana day. You can pick one up for 50L (here) to show your support.

Kitties Gone Wild with the Groceries

Kitties Gone Wild

What is it about cats and bags? They love to play with them. I am just trying to bring my groceries inside and they are all getting into the paper bags. Then we have the one pointing to the list making sure I bought the cat food, and another one ordering boxes on the internet. Notice the princess is missing though. Obviously not a mischievous cat (either that or the gacha machine wouldn’t give her to me).

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.

Fall is the Time of Year for …

Fall is the time of year for watching the changing of leaves. Reds, oranges, and yellows add warmth color to mother earth. Pumpkins come out to do their duty as family fun, decorations, and edibles. I can’t go through fall without a slice of pumpkin pie or a pumpkin spice latte (PSL). As the weather gets cooler we start to pull out our sweaters and leggings to add a bit of warm coziness to ourselves.

The adorable little scene was created by Trompe Loeil. It comes with the color changing leaves on the tree, a swing with sit animations, bench with sit animations, lamp post, shack, bridge, and pumpkin pack. The sit animated bench has color change blanket and pillow. The scene is already put together for you. And each piece is also packed individually.

Caroline (unedited)(click to enlarge)

Glam Affair created this gorgeous skin named Caroline. Of course I had to get it. The skin is so beautiful even without the included make ups added on. I didn’t edit the picture at all so that you could see how pretty it really is. The cute foxy hat and hair are new from Truth Hair. The hat and hair are color change by hud. Zenith has this cute autumn coat with long shirt at Kustom 9. The hud gives you a choice of 9 different shirt colors. The super cute necklace is from a gacha at The Epiphany. I was just happy with whatever necklace came out on first pull. The gold and silver version are included in the pack.

The mesh leggings were released and blogged last month. But expect to see them again. Each pack comes with 4 colors so they go with practically everything. And the Rosie Boots are from fri.day in a special FLF Sierra version.

Ever Left The House In A Hurry And Ran Into Someone You Know?

At one time or another we have all left the house not looking our best. We just throw on a pair of jogging pants, quickly grab some shoes, and throw our hair up in a bun. We go running out the door hoping that we don’t bump into someone that we know. Because we know there is that one friend that loves to gossip. And she will be talking about you next. Oh that poor Caroline can’t afford a hairbrush or decent clothes. You can just hear her in your head now.

fancy meeting you here

With my new sexy open back Neve sweaters I can still look good on a quick run, even when worn up with joggers. I paired these outfits up with cute shoes from Ingenue. I love both of these hairstyles. The updo will go with any style clothes that I wear, and the Oleander hair looks innocent and sweet. So even if you have to leave the house not looking your best you will still look great with these looks. And that friend won’t have much to talk about except how gorgeous you are lately.
