Bandana Day & the end of Hair Fair

Hair Fair 2014 is winding down… today is the final day, so please stop by if you haven’t, or even if you have but didn’t get all the goodies you wanted. While you’re there please consider grabbing one of the many Bandana Day bandanas available. This is such a cool project, where designers create bandanas and the money raised goes entirely to Wigs For Kids. I chose a bandana created by lollipopZ because it has owls and I love owls! It also features such bright, cheerful colors. You can also see my SLink manicure, by Somnia for My Attic, which runs through July 31st.

Bandana Day 2014

In addition to showing you my adorable bandana, I wanted to show off one final style. This one is from Exile, and it was perfect for the dreamy, fantasy mood I was inspired to create by this garden lounger from Sway’s and a couple of cuties from Silent Sparrow and Schadenfreude the Wild Things gacha festival, which is now open! The Sway’s garden lounger is part of this weekend’s Dreaming Tree event, which has a theme of daydreaming. For the rest of today you can grab it for 25% off the regular price at Sway’s mainstore.

The Dreamer calls to nature

Finally, I wanted to show you a closer look this gorgeous new skin from Essences… Greek Goddess. I’m wearing it in Pale 02, which is such a creamy, dreamy porcelain tone. You can find The Greek Goddess in the Essences mainstore.

Wynn the Wombat has Wanderlust

This weekend marks the opening of the Wild Things Gacha Festival. I have a couple of adorable items to show you from that (and more to come), and I combined them with some of the Collabor88 items from the current round, which has a safari chic theme. Also, Hair Fair ends this weekend, so be sure to get there and check it out. Remember, each purchase helps raise funds for Wigs For Kids, which is a fabulous charity. I’m wearing one of the styles from Eaters Coma. I love braids, so this style was right up my alley. Wynn the Wombat is from Schadenfreude (name not included, lol) and clearly she has wanderlust and wants to travel with me. She’s stomping down the overly full suitcase from Kuro (at The Theme Park’s Summer Vacation edition) while the giraffe from Sway’s for Wild Things looks on curiously. And all of this is happening inside the stunning Rivershire Watermill Trompe Loeil has out for Collabor88.

Dangerous Curves

I wanted to show off some gorgeous Blacklace lingerie and this super sexy Ma Vie pose… so I snagged two of my bestest, sexiest friends and groped them made them model for me (thanks Rosa & Charisma!).

My beautiful curly hair is from ISON for Hair Fair. I really love the curls he did. There are two curly styles, with subtle (but definite) differences. I am wearing Bee, because I liked the tucked-back-behind-one-ear-away-from-the-face style. My strappy, sexy sandals are from fri.day for the current round of Collabor88.

Hair Fair and…

I have a couple more Hair Fair styles to share with you today, along with two great items you can grab at the current round of We <3 RP! Plus, a handful of items from various other events, including Kustom 9, The Theme Park, Fit For A Princess and Oneword.

One of LeLutka’s new Hair Fair offerings, Christine, combined with this dramatic dress Peqe has at We <3 RP inspired my first look. The pose and beautiful lantern prop are also at We <3 RP, from Picture This! Poses.

Tryst of the princess

In this close up, you can see the gorgeous skin Lumae has out for The Theme Park’s Summer Vacation edition, which is now open. It also gives you a better look at two items from Cae that can be found at events; The Queen of Hearts pendant, which is available at Oneword’s Wonderland round, and the stunning Happily Ever After Ring available at Fit For A Princess.

Waiting

I love when an event introduces me to a store I’d previously not known. My next Hair Fair pick is from Ayashi, a store I’d not heard of before Hair Fair 2014 opened. I thought this style was cute and artsy, so I paired it with this gorgeous Mutresse dress I bought a while back and haven’t worn. I added some sexy SLink boots, and found an art gallery to showcase the look…even though Charisma thinks I should’ve found someplace more, as she put it, “lady domme” to shoot this look.

Art Aficionado

Essences has a new gacha skin at the just opened round of Kustom 9. Alex is really pretty, with a lot of dramatic makeups to win. This is just one. I tend to go for more natural looks, or at least more traditional makeup. But something about this bright red eyeshadow and the unexpected pink lips just grabbed me.

Crimson

Be sure to check out all of these great events… however, you may need to invest in more Lindens first!

Hair Fair is HERE!

Hair Fair is one of my favorite events of the year. Not only is it fun to go try all the new hairs, Hair Fair benefits an incredible charity called Wigs For Kids. You can read all about Hair Fair 2014 on the official event blog.

As with previous years, Hair Fair 2014 features a clean, easy-to-navigate layout. Since I get lost so easily at events, this is something I’ve always really appreciated. I feel the event organizers go to great lengths to try to make it a fun environment that is as low lag as possible. But this year’s build is just so, so cute on top of all that other good stuff. I had to snap a couple of pics. As in previous years, you’ll find redelivery terminals scattered around the sim, in case lag gets the better of you or you accidentally decline an offer.

Hair Fair 2014 2

Hair Fair 2014 1

For my first Hair Fair 2014 post, I chose one of Ploom’s new styles, Carrie. I love the sleek, somewhat retro feel to this hairstyle. It’s so elegant! I paired it with a sunset colored dress from SySy’s, which goes so nicely with my adorable fri.day wedge heels available at The Seasons Story.

Summer sunset

My beautiful skin is Essences Galadriel, which is also available at The Seasons Story in the new skin tones (which I just love). My jewelry is from Cae, for The Dreaming Tree, so hurry… you can still grab this set for a discount for the rest of today!

The dirigible plums need sun

You will find Ploom on the Brunette sim at Hair Fair. The Hair Fair blog has a fabulously informative post about this year’s event. It breaks down each of the four sims by stores and also features a handy map!

Rhapsody

There are only a couple of days left for Rhapsody. This is a must-visit event for music lovers… whether your love is rock, jazz, metal or country (amongst others) you’ll be sure to find something to love at this event.

I was inspired by Coquet’s County Rd 22 dress and Blake Shelton’s new song “My Eyes” in creating this look. The prop pose is from Embody’s Country Girl set, and I had to blog it because I begged Rad to do this pack. Both the Coquet and Embody are in the Country genre at Rhapsody. My adorable wedge heels are fri.day for Summerfest, which also ends this weekend.

Those high heels with that sundress...

I knew I needed a skin with dramatic red lips for this look, to go with the line “red lips like wine, wanna drink them up” from the song. When I saw PXL’s Mia in the Jazz genre at Rhapsody I fell in love with it. I originally grabbed one with peachy, summery makeup, but then went back for the version you see below, with the luscious red lips.

Red lips like wine

Ready for romance

I had put together a look that was a mix of items from Summerfest and Rhapsody, and when I saw Pixel Mode’s FaMESHed release, I knew immediately how to stage it. This release features a romantic massage table that includes spa items on tables (towels, oils, massage stones). It’s really pretty, and there is a PG version or an adult version. My kimono is from tres blah, for Summerfest. It has a tank that has multiple texture options, including hide. I’ve hidden it in order to show off some very pretty, lacey lingerie from Blacklace. The adorable heels I am wearing are fri.day for Rhapsody (fri.day is in the jazz genre). This super sexy bed hair is Holli from Ploom, also for Summerfest.

Ready For Romance

I am in the beautiful Scarlet Creative house that is just L$88 at Collabor88 until this round ends (just a few more days!). What I’ve always loved about Scarlet Creative’s buildings is how unique and quirky they are. They all have such amazing character, and the Atlantic Stargazer is no different. The old lighted captain’s wheel on the wall is also available at Collabor88, from tarte. It’s a really pretty way to decorate in a summery, beach house vibe. Here’s a better look at it, and also at the stunning Ria skin Belleza has at Summerfest. You can also take a look at my cute disco inspired necklace from Cae for Rhapsody.
