Last Snow


I have gotten to the point where I can’t do snow in SL anymore! Don’t get me wrong I love the winter season in SL and all the beautiful winter sims are truly magical, but I just need to start seeing some green! It’s been cold for too long now in RL so I need some virtual warmth. So tonight I started changing over my sim to Spring, but not before doing one last snowy picture.
I also felt I just HAD to because most of these things I have had for a while trying to put the outfit together and they just would not work in a non-snow world…lol Yes I always wear my fur cap in Spring time.

Double, Double Toil And Trouble


Happy Halloween everyone! I dressed as a fun little witch this year.
Isn’t this dress just the cutest! I am sure every witch need a sassy little black dress just like any woman and this one comes complete with a spider wed overlay.
Gotta have the striped tights and I found this cute very witchy looking buckled shoes that fit so perfectly. And of course my ever trusty witch hat. It’s a little old, but still looks great I think.

My skin is another of the great find from Enchantment. This is the Birdy Snow Skin Poisoned, but I thought it worked nicely for a witch. When you buy the skin at Enchantment you get three different make ups included for one low price. What a steal!
The poisoned apple in my mouth will also be available at Enchantment from aisling. There are 3 different apple styles you can buy and each come with a few different wear options, but I loved the poisoned deathly looking apple.

Fairest of Them All


A new event is about to kick off November 1st called Enchantment. Every 3 months they will feature a different fairytale and first up is Grimm’s Snow White. So many goodies at this event and this is just the first round. I simply cannot wait for future runs of this.

I am wearing a stunning black lace dress from The Annex, one can’t help but feel queenly in this dress. Of course with such a stately dress I needed an equally beautiful crown and what luck GSpot has exactly the crown needed. I can’t help but feel powerful in this crown and surely with an outfit this beautiful the evil Queen shall prevail of that whiny little Snow White.

My skin is a limited edition from La Petite Morte just for Enchantment. I loved the thick dark eyebrows and the luscious red lips perfect for any queen plotting the death of her one true rival I thought.

As a side note, I have taken the mesh hand leap. I am a bit late to the game, but I loved this pose and my system hands just looked horrible! At least now I have an excuse to go buy all those cool nail polishes I have been passing up because I had no hands!

Feather Sheer


My new favorite hair of the moment is Tamora from Chemistry. I love the fluffy waviness of it, for some reason it reminds me of Hermione and her wild hair. I had not been to Chemistry in a while so it was a great surprise to see all the new hair textures and the very large packs the hair is sold in now. So much variety! I love this new trend with hair creators and having a bunch of colors sold in pack on a HUD. It’s so much easier on the inventory not having all those separate hairs. Also in a lot of the packs now there tends to be more than just one hair color I wear so I like the feeling of getting more use for my money.

I made it to FaMESHed this week and boy are there a ton of great things for this month’s round. One of my favorite buys was this cardigan from Mutresse. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of them before. But then some times I can put on blinders to brands I am not familiar with. Anyway, this cardigan is so cute and well fitting! At first I was a little ehhh paying nearly 400L for just a sweater, but then I realized it was not really just ONE sweater. It includes all options! There are 24 fabric options for the sweater in a few different patters and colors and plains, plus 7 color options for each the buttons, the trim and the sheer part. There are so many combinations one could make with this, I am happy I bought it now.

Crisp Air


Mornings of crisp fall air inspired me to cozy up a little more today.
Love this over sized sweater from ColdLogic, it’s perfect for these cooler October days. I paired it with an older, but still really cute scarf I found in my inventory from Tee*fy. A pair of rolled up boyfriend jeans from Ryvolter I got at the Seasons Story make a perfect comfortable, but not totally winter bundled up combo I think. I also thought this the perfect time to break out the orange flower Bossy Boots from Fashionably Dead that were in the Arcade over the summer.

Fall Silk


There are a lot of great things at the Season Story, this top from Tram is one I could not live with out. I loved how flowy and silky it looked. I am wearing it with the add on collar which adds a great automatic layer effect. There are also lots of options of the add on collar so many uses for the top.
I paired it with some simple trousers and a high boot for more of a fall look.
My pose is from Ploom and I will be honest I have never bought a pose from there before. I needed something new and knew they had poses because I always see them when the note card goes out for new hairs. I decided to see what they had to offer and I was very pleasantly surprised. I a kinda on the broke side at the moment and was just looking for a single pose (as that was all I could afford), but I will definitely be going back to Ploom for more poses. A really nice bonus for buying poses in packs from Ploom is they offer a curvy version of each pose in the pack. I think this is awesome because some times my hips seem a bit wider than the average for poses. Also curvy sized poses are great with some poofy clothes. If you just need single poses they do also offer the curvy ones for single purchase too.

Hair Fair 2013

It’s that time of year again… HAIR FAIR!!! *runs around with crazy flailing arms* Out of all the fair type events, like skin fair, pose fair, etc…, Hair Fair is my most favorite. One can never have too much hair, right? It’s so easy in SL to change your hair from short to long and back again. Dye it crazy colors or bring it back to a natural color. I have to have lots of variety in my hairs to fit every mood and whim I may have.

With so many great hair creators these days I find it really hard to limit myself. I went way overboard last year buying nearly 40 hairs! Looking back at my old post I realized that so many of them I forgot I had and never wore again. So when it came to hair fair this time I gave myself a stern talking to about really thinking over what hairs I would buy. I still went a little overboard, but really who could blame me with all the awesome hair out there this year?! The total number of hairs I got this is is just under half of what I got last year so i will count that as goal accomplished in not going totally overboard.
You might want to sit back, this is going to be kind of a long post.


Last year Laviere was a new to me hair store, but over the last year they have been working their way to being one of my favorite stores. When I finally got into the fair, which surprisingly didn’t take that long, just a few minutes of constant tp attempts, Laviere was one of the first stores I hit up. As I said before I was really trying to limit myself on what to buy and these two hairs were the ones I felt I could not live with out. It was more difficult to choose which color pack to buy them in actually. Lately I have only been getting fades, I just love that look and Laviere has a great pack with fades, but their textures are so beautifully made that even in the solid colors there is a nice variation to keep the hair from looking flat. I ended up just getting the pastel color pack because the colors are really pretty an it’s the perfect pink!
I simply loved this little curly hair from Tram! I only wish Tram did more non natural colors, but there was this dark salmon-y color that can pass ff as pink so it worked out.


Lamb has some really cute hairs out this year. One of my absolute favorites is True Faith. There is also a similar hair called Blue Monday out and it’s basically the same except it has rolled under and very retro looking bangs. I loved it too and I wear retro styled things a lot, but I had to look long and hard at both hairs and choose which I thought I would get more use out of. Remember trying to stick to a goal of not going too crazy here. As much as I loved the rolled under bangs the more swept to the side fringe won out.
The other hair I got from Lamb is Thieves Like Us. I love that the braids are not super thick. So many braid hairs in SL seem so huge and thick to me. Now I have a lot of hair in RL and the curls ad a lot of volume and thickness to it, but when I braid my hair it is smaller and not all huge like braids tend to be in SL.
Fashionable Dead has some really cute hairs out this year, but by the time I got there I was running low on funds and could only get one. It was hard to choose as this year all (fd) hairs come packaged with two versions… TWO! In the end I got Mercury. I really liked the little floral knotted headband and think I’ll wear it more than the others.


There are a lot of hairs this year with really cute accessories. Ohmai is one of the shops with some of those hairs. I got Athena and Kun. As soon as I put Kun on it reminded me of Melora from Rasputina and could already picture some photo ops and outfits to wear it with.
Some lovely hairs from Clawtooth this yeah, I couldn’t live with out Tootsie. The best thing I think is he’s made a color pack with some of the colors he had int he last arcade round. This pink is my favorite by far.


ISON hair is new to me. Maybe it’s it is new in general, I donno I forget to check back at stores often to see what new things they are up to, but I just remember the clothes. I really liked these two hair styles and they have some nice colors and fades. When you buy the hair you get it with basic colors, and then you have the option to buy other packs on huds. Buying the hair plus the color pack was about 300L, which is nice because for the price of most hairs you get essential natural colors, plus another pack of colors of your choosing. It works out great for me because if I like a hair a lot I will buy it in a basic brown or blonde pack PLUS what ever pack gives me a nice pink or dip dye colors and i was able to do just that for only the price of basically one hair.
LeLutka is another shop this year with pretty accessories for their hair. And I am so happy now that more and more LeLutka hair is being offered in non natural colors!


I was pleasantly surprised by Ploom this year. They usually always have nice hair, just not always in my style. There were two that I just had to have this year. Cassie is so cute with the looped pigtails I could not resist and I really like Ploom’s dip dye pack called Candy.
The other hair I got is Raichu, it’s kinda cute and sassy ponytails done in bunches. There are some really nice details in this hair. Like up front where the hair is in the first band how it is a little poofy, but you can see where the rubber band weighs it down a bit. And the way the swoopy bangs separate from that top poofy part just look brilliant to me. I don’t want to be rude or anything like that, but I really feel like I can see some growth in technique with these latest hairs from Ploom at the fair.
And last, but not least the hairs I picked up at Eaters Coma. This was another shop that made it hard to limit myself. Hair 27 is kinda similar in style to one I got at ISON, but I justified the purchase by reasoning I’d wear the ISON on more in the pinks and as Eaters Coma doesn’t offer funky colors then I would wear it in natural brown. See, perfect reason to get two similar styles!

So those were my picks from this year’s fair. If you haven’t been yet you really should. It didn’t take long to actually get there at all and I made 3 trips and was amazed each time how quickly I got in. Previous years it would literally take me days to get a TP to actually go, but not this year. Also this year’s build is so awesome and cute! If you are having a hard time getting around I suggest finding one of the “bus” dispensers. They really are a life saver for getting around the fair.
