Cozy Winter


I bought this coat a while ago from a round of C88 and immediately this outfit popped into my head. I have been impatiently waiting for winter sims to start popping up so I could actually wear the outfit an have somewhere to take a lovely picture. Finally we are enough into late Fall for snow to start falling in SL (and not seem too crazy).

This morning while scrolling through my Flickr came across pictures of the beautiful sim Felicity Blumenthal did and thought it was the perfect place to take a picture. You can see more pictures of the sim HERE

I love this coat and its little peter pan collar. It screamed winter scene to me, but there were a bunch of colors that make it work for many outfits. I choose this dark green because, well, Christmas was already on my mind when I bought it so I just went with an idea. It feels so classic to me so I paired it with a cute little fur muff from Junbug. I feel like i could be in a Currier and Ives picture.

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.

Romper Skates


Back with some more frilly things from the current C88. It may look like one piece but I am wearing a separate top and shorts, but when worn together they make a cute little romper perfect for summer. I love that the pieces are separate so they can be worn many different ways and with different clothes to give new looks. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen a dress or romper type outfit and thought “that’s cute, but I really just want the top,” or bottom or whatever. The last couple of things I have seen from Tee*fy has separated the top and the bottom and I think it’s great!
The outfit just screamed Summer to me and for some reason I thought back to my childhood (could have been cause that was the last time I was ever in a romper type outfit when my mom was still dressing me). One of my favorite things to do in Summer was to slap on my skates and roll around the neighborhood, yes I am old so I had the classic style skates not those weird inline things.

Denim and Stripes


I finally made it to FaMeshed and it is another event this month simply packed with great new items. It’s FaMeshed’s one year anniversary and the creators have out done themselves. At the moment I have only bought a few things. I am trying to pace myself and not go overboard. I tend to spend too much and not really think about it and then half the time not wear what I buy. So I am trying to be a little more conservative with my money.
The first thing I bought was this denim jacket from Emery. I have been longing for a mesh denim jacket just like this for ages now.
I am pretty much a sucker for cute and kind of frilly skirts, so after the jacket I made a bee-line to Tee*fy’s booth. They have lovely light summer dresses out and also skirts. I got one of the skirts this time, but only because I am having a horrible time choosing which color of the dress to get.

2013 here I come!


All dolled up and ready to have some fun tonight and ring in the new year! Still looking for that perfect dress for a night of fun in SL, well you should definitely head down to Maitreya and check out the new Frenzy Party dress that went out yesterday. It’s cute, fun, flirty and covered in glitter! What more do you need for a New Year party!? I got the purple with flex of pink glitter, but it comes in so many colors it was hard to pick just one.

I headed back to Dutch Touch to grab a skin with make up on it (as I tend to only wear bare faced skins). I ended up buying 3 more skins… I hate when stores close and leave. How am I to know what I will need from them for the future?! If you have not headed down to Dutch Touch yet to get any last minute skins I suggest you high tail it down there because today is the last day! This one I am wearing today is Fiep in make up 5.

Hair Fair 2012 Part Two

Back with some more of my many purchases from this year’s hair fair.


Epoque was a new to me brand and i think I am in love now! Well, it was not too hard for them to get my attention. First hair right in the door was Stablizer, a cute little top bun with bangs and they have a lovely pink hair texture. So really love at first sight. I think my love of buns stems from doing years of ballet as a little girl.
Fighter is also at top bun with long swoopy come over bangs type hair I couldn’t pass up. Epoque has a nice selection of non natural and fun dyed hairs so if you are like me and need variety from the usual it’s perfect!


Decoy has a nice selection of hairs out at the fair this year. Oh look another bun hair..lol
On the left is Bethani. Such a cute hair with the long-ish loose fringe in front and other little loose hairs. Give the whole style a fun and carefree feeling.
Ren, top right, is a nice little side ponytail. It may look a little simple, but looking closer you see the small details that I have come to associate with the Decoy brand. The hairs don’t just simply pull to the side, but there are strands twisted under other ones and it really give the feel of quickly running your fingers through your hair and pulling it to the side. I always like when there are hairs out of order in SL hair… makes it feel more natural.
Bottom right is Aella, which I think is a must have. Just a nice hair to have that can be made to work with many different outfits and situations.


I had no idea that LaViere made hairs! I’m glad I stopped by their stall… such cute styles and lots of fun colors!
Top left is Valere, a very cute short style.
Ambush is on the bottom left. I will be honest with you when I first put on this hair all I could see was the standard Romulan female hair style… haha been watching too much Next Generation I think. But the more I looked at it the style really grew on me and I find it totally adorable!
Freya, on the right, is one of the cutest high side pony tails I have seen! I could not resist it. (Resistance is futile…lol I amuse myself.)
I bought all my Laviere hairs in the color pack so many fun options there!


On the left I have on Mica from Slink. I had no clue they made hair.. looks like I need to get out more often.
To the right is Ging from Analog Dog, which is the first hair from there I have ever liked. The hairs there are great and cute, but I am not a huge fan of hairs made with so much flexi and alpha textures. Ging comes with an optional felxi add on, but I prefer it with out. i think the texturing of the flexi parts and how they stick out from the hair really detract from it.


Wasabi Pills has a really cute and fun hair out called Zoey (left). I have lately been dressing in a bit of a bohemian style and this hair will fit in just perfectly. The beads and the cord both change color by HUD.
Mons is another brand that I had no idea they made hair. I fell in love with Sweet Dreams, a fun and little bit funky bun style. I would have preferred it in pink, but sadly Mons does not offer non natural colors. The brown is still nice though and there is a cute bow!
