Two events that I have recently visited were Mesh Body Addicts Fair and The Gacha Garden. At MBA I picked up the new Maitreya High Waisted Shorts. These are great because you can wear it with a worn look or rolled. Plus the belt comes in 6 colors. My previous Secret Store blouse purchase fit perfectly with these shorts. I love well made bags in RL and SL. This one is from fame femme. It comes with 3 hold poses. I am using an an lar pose, but the bag overrides the left arm animation with the bag hold. This is the first time I am hearing about fame femme, and a look at her Flickr and you will see that her creations are gorgeous. I look forward to seeing more from her.

At The Gacha Garden I picked up the new Mina hair Sylvia. I won the rare hair color pack on the second try. The Sucre necklace is the seed of inspiration from Cae’s gacha set. I love this cupcake. See it on the Cae Flickr stream. The cute charms that you play for to get the seed of inspiration are so well made.

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.

Going into Battle Wearing Pink

Going into Battle

Role-playing battle games usually require a tank, a healer, and a damage dealer. I have always dressed up my character as cute as I possibly could. Always female gender and usually short in stature going out in to battle with my pink outfit on. When I popped over to check out the new sim, Gates of Memories, I found these two statues. I knew that I had to recreate a going in to battle scene.

My entire outfit is new from Rebel Hope for FaMESHed. The pieces are fit mesh for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, and the standard avatar. Each item is hud driven for color changes. My hairstyle is Pearl from Mina. It is part of the Midnight Madness event, and free to the Mina Hair group.

into battle 1024

A new event called Midnight Madness started today.  From what I understand, the event was so popular that the Midnight Madness boards broke. But the designers didn’t let that get in the way. Most of the designers that are participating in this first round were very gracious and decided to give the item away to everyone. Teleport to their store and buy the item for 0L$. This all ends tonight at midnight. You can find a list of stores that are doing so on the Midnight Madness web page. The sims are pretty full, and you should leave your shield and armor at home. It would just be less laggy that way.

Why We Love Fall (And You Should, Too!)

Fall Shopping Day

Fall isn’t just about pumpkin lattes and Halloween. Some stores do have Christmas stuff out already. All joking aside, this turning of the season also means that it is time to shop for new clothes! Shopping is a favorite pastime for most people that I know. And the beginning of the month means new product and sales are awaiting us!

Neve is participating in the MIX event with two new mesh dresses. The one I have on today is Acute and comes in four different textures (plaid/floral/lively/neutral). Each texture pack that you buy comes with a four color hud. These colors are great for the fall season. The color of the belt can also be changed, or you can remove it from the dress. Neve mesh clothes are made to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Slink Physique, and the classic avatar.

My gorgeous flowing locks are by Mina. She is one of the great sought after hair dressers in Second Life. This hairstyle is called Laila and is 50% off for the MIX event this month. Working our way down to the dazzling necklace I am wearing is ANE Angel Heart Necklace in diamond/silver. The bags are both from ROWNE and Zenith gachas. I love purses and these are really outstanding. I want to take the time to say that ROWNE has outstanding customer service. I rezzed this bag for decor and it poofed. Gone. So I contacted their customer service agent, Justice Topaz, and she sent me a new replacement! Apparently ROWNE bags cannot be rezzed, so do not try it.

And finally down to the feet we have Ingenue Astrid and Ninette Heels. The Ninette Heels were just on sale for FLF. Hope you were able to grab them. Betty Doyle is an outstanding footwear designer. I wish she would try and make clothes again. My powder blue classic stiletto heels are Sutra II from AlaskaMetro and matches perfectly with the outfit.
