The Sand Between My Toes.

New, new, newness. Hair Fair 2013 has kicked off and as usual there’s so many beautiful new styles! Before you begin to fight the crowds at the event, you could join the Hair Fair Demo Group for free and try your hair on in the privacy of your own home. After you have your favorites picked, landmarks to each store are posted on the official Hair Fair Blog. My first post today includes one of my new favorite retro styles to add to my inventory which is from lamb at the Hair Fair. In my last post I mentioned FILTHY has reopened. Well, now she has come out with a second version of Alicia with a few newer makeups and skin tones. I was most excited for the new hand and feet appliers that are out with this new release!

Today I used a WL created by my great friend Kismet Faith, it’s called Boats Go Out. I tweaked it a lil bit but I love the scene it let me create. I’m sure she’ll be posting it on her blog soon! Ty Kis! <3

Shade Me From Those Warm Sunny Days.

Most people use umbrellas for the downpours. Living in Southern California, I see there’s just a need for shade. Today I put together a new Kawaii Fair and Bees Through The Seasons look for you, inspired by this thought. Hope you enjoy. :D

What Would a Road Trip with Kismet Look Like?

I suppose there would be a lot of storytelling, music sharing (at least on my part :p), experimental dining out, random conversations with atypical strangers…all in all I’m sure it would be a total blast! It’s been a while since Kis and I have done a joint post so we figured since the latest round of The Boobies Show has just begun we’d show off our lovely Tangos for you.

Harlow Heslop recently posted a very helpful tutorial on how to create a  fog effect in Photoshop, you can find the details here. I thought I’d take a shot at it and ended up with the photo below. I’m sure I’ll be playing around with this option more to see what else I can come up with!

Dorking Around.

The new session of Perfect Wardrobe started yesterday and it’s all about us nerds! We all have a little geek in us or at least I think so, why not embrace it? Le Primitif created this laptop with 3 animated, adjustable poses for this round. It has two verisons, with and without coffee. Since I’m always in need of a coffee fix, I’m choosing to keep this by my side both in RL and SL. My favorite from this session was created by Epic, a little kawaii backpack with 6 colors to choose from. The best part is the E=mc² particle emitter! So adorable. :D I’m also in the process of redecorating my new home and hopefully I’ll be finding some new furnishings to show you, at the very least some older ones I’ve got buried in my inventory.

Vintage Fair Preview.

The Vintage Fair begins tomorrow and I was so excited to receive these new dresses from Spirit Store. There’s an array of colorful dresses but I was feeling a bit black and white, go figure. :p I’ve never seen her do anything like this so of course I needed to show them off. I’m also showing you more aDORKable poses for the fair along with the new vintage skins from WoW Skins. Have a look below for closeups. Plus, Chic Management  is putting on a flickr photo contest for the event you may want to check out. Last but not least, just to let ya know, bellballs.essentials is having a 100L sale until the end of the month, even on her new stuff!

Did you miss me?

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been able to blog for you, I apologize! RL has given me many new obligations and I’m trying to get used to them all. Once I do, I’ll be back to showing off pretty things for you on a more regular basis. As you may know, I can never pass up a retro look and the new session of Perfect Wardrobe was exactly what I needed. The theme this time around is 50’s Pin Up and there’s so much vintage goodness to add to your SL closet.
