The Silence of Snowfall

Hair Fair 2016 is just around the corner. And one of the fun parts of WAITING (OK – there really aren’t any fun parts of waiting, but something to pass the time) is the photo contest.

The rules are different each year so be sure and read the criteria. You could win some early access passes as well as some goodies.

This is my entry, a raw shot of one of my favorite Fall and Winter hairs.

Remembering Style

SUMMERFEST16 will open on June 18th and go to July 10th. So far the location appears to be hush-hush and top secret, but I am guessing that all will be revealed (maybe on the destination guide) as the calendar page turns.

Here ya go:

From BAIASTICE a fun and ladylike collection of beachwear including Foulard straw hat (texture change by hud), Espadrillas in both plain and patterned fabrics, and  the Seae Swimsuit in a large variety of colors. 

Meanwhile you can see some of the offerings on the Flickr group here:

Getting Beachy

I am really enjoying my big lot over by the mainland waterway. Plenty of prims so I don’t need to worry; nice views in most directions (will it IS mainland :D).

From Sway’s, the [Kai] Lifeguard Chair at  The Liaison Collaborative.
Lots of version of chair, texture change menu and singles and couples poses let you find the perfect style for YOUR style.

alaskametro “Jess” fringed anklets in various color sets with hud. These are super fun with swimwear, shorts or even tiny skirts!

From Mimikri,  the Joli Leather Bikini with choice of texture and various mesh sizes … Read more →

On9 Photo Contest

On9 Photo Contest

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out you need to click on this small photo to zoom in on all the details! 

So On9 is having a photo contest.  This isn’t a linden winning enterprise; it’s more about fame and glory and the opportunity to reap a lot of blogger goodness in the July round of On9 (I know the theme and it is a fun one but lips are sealed).

Anyway, while I am not actually ENTERING the contest, I thought it would be fun to do the exercise as if I were. This … Read more →

Painted Lady

painted lady

I have been wearing this outfit for several days now, feeling quite at home — at home.

Lots of great new releases make up this outfit. All but one can be found at On9, but for this really great fitting tank (likely to be one of my favorites for the summer) you’ll need to head over to the Black Dot Project.  The {MYNX} Aria Crop Tank comes in a ton of colors. The two pack includes a solid hue as well as a pretty tropical floral pattern. Standard mesh sizes as well as all the popular mesh bodies … Read more →

Family History

Family History

The girls these days have no notion what life was like in the 50’s, 60’s or even 70’s. While equality isn’t quite here yet, it is leaps and bounds ahead of where it was back then.

My great-grandmother was a suffragette. She was also the first woman school principal in Texas — at least that is the family lore. I come from a long line of interesting women. My mother was creative back before it became popular. My grandmother was a flapper and a damn good looking woman.

When we look back, it is difficult to imagine our lives as … Read more →

Venues – A Love Hate Relationship

Chic AeonEvents, Fashion, Home and Garden, iheartslFeed

I can’t actually remember when venue “events” became mainstream. I do know that I was in a few during my jewelry making days and that was SO long ago. Nowadays events are all the rage. I admit I really like the ability to see new releases from lots of designers all in one place. I admit that I spent a fair amount of time going through Seraphim “catalogs” to see what I might want to take a closer look at.

I have talked to some designers who swear they will never get on the venue bandwagon. I am not really … Read more →

Lady of Leisure

Click  photo for a closer view of the accessories.

Keeping up with all the new goodness out there isn’t an easy job. Happily I can take a break now and then and PRETEND I am a lady of leisure.

At On9:

R.icielli – AMALIA Swinsuit  (a huge assortment of colors and prints to choose from – standard and fitmesh for many popular bodies)

HAYSURIZA Eyewear Kyoto Sakura (mono) – flowers on the side panels.

Garbaggio // Lulu Pumps – tons and tons of colors; the “stripe” on the toe is actually a semi-transparent area so nail polish counts *wink*… Read more →

Stella River Barge

Chic AeonEvents, Fashion, Home and Garden, iheartslFeed

My real life friends have always said I would make a good boat person. I prefer small spaces and I am very neat — always putting things away; eliminating clutter.  But for me, a houseboat would be even better!  Potted plants along the back deck? Yep. Perfect.

From Trompe Loeil for COLLABOR88, the Stella River Barge — a 107 land impact cutie that will fit on a 512 coastal or water plot — or of course along your own riverbank should you have a larger parcel.

It comes with two hammocks and in both PG and A versions with … Read more →

Ladies That Lunch

Ladies That Lunch

I think I passed through my Ladies That Lunch phase one month in late Spring about a decade ago. Still, it is fun to play.

From ArisAris/BW the Pamela Hat with scarf which includes a lovely hud that let’s you change colors of individual pieces or go with a version already designed for you.

From Meva for Cosmopolitan , the Meva Chaplet necklace. Available in several tones it coordinates nicely with the earlier release of the  Meva Beads Bracelet  (hopefully at the main shop).

Ladies That Lunch

Some new releases from Baiastice for Collabor88 are definitely in that posh category.
