Comfort Zone

I haven't had the desire to fashion blog much lately because quite frankly, I've been happy in my comfort zone of jeans, tees, and sandals. Can I blame summer for my rut? But sometimes to remember where you want to go, you have to push yourself out of your comfort zone. And for someone who is perfectly happy in old shorts and sandals, a new dress and new heels were just the way to go! No big descriptions here today, because it's 105 degrees and that doesn't make me feel like writing. Just know that I really love what I'm wearing today, because I try not to blog anything I DON'T like, and I think you should totally go check out the stores. ♥

New Release: Mea Culpa, Time Warp

Mea Culpa has released a new gown called "Time Warp"!

I am assuming the name comes from the head accessory which must be inspired from the shape of a Japanese Kabuto (head gear in Japanese armours worn by the head samurais) in the samurai days.

In contrast to the valiant head accessory, the outfit is a very elegant mermaid gown, making this outfit very appealing and interesting to style.


Mea Culpa - Time Warp

Outfit: Mea Culpa, Time Warp
Earrings: Finesmith Jewelry, Lacie Color Set (イヤリングのみ使用)
Prim Nails: CCD, Prim Nail Manicure (green)
Skin: Bodyline, Yuuga (dark pure)
Eye Shadow: Ag, Tropical Shadows (Sun Conure)
*The link to the Ag store is a link to a makeup fair type place called Kozmetica where Ag has an area where vendors are placed.  Ag items can also be found in SL Marketplace

Tips & Tricks: Lag Reduction

On 1st August 2011 · By Harlow · With Leave a comment
In Fashion, Harlow Heslop, Second Life · Tags
Oh dreaded Lag. You are a monster in Second Life that we simply do not like.  Your offensive, frustrating, and you ruin a good time! I’m going to do my best to explain to Second Life residents how to slay the dreaded lag dragon. First it’s important to know what causes Lag in Second Life… 1. How your computer is designed and the specifications of your system. 2. Your internet connection 3. Activities taking place in Second Life. The number of avatars in the area, how crowded the grid is currently, the textures surrounding you, and another huge factor is scripts that are on the sim you are visiting. Now that you know what causes it. Let’s talk about how to fix it… Graphics Preferences Go into your preferences (ctrl + P) and take a good look at your graphics preferences.  In Second life there are 4 options. (low, medium, high, ultra).  Depending on your computer specifications some of these settings can be too hard on your machine. … Read the rest

Hellooo and Happy August! First of all I have to thank my friend Ohna for plurking about *COCO* because it reminded me to go check if they had any new group gifts and they did! This lovely jacket comes in 2 other colors and it's totally free. All you have to do is join the group and click the sign at the store. They have around 10 amazing group gifts so make sure you grab them all if you haven't yet! It's another week for the Fashionably Late event and this hair from [Shag] called Voulez-Vous comes in all colors for 150L$ per pack only and the fatpack for 600L$. There are also roots available if you like those on your hair. I've had these glasses from HOC for a long time and I love them so darn much. Their stuff is so cheap and everything is color changeable. These sneakers are also from HOC and come in 16 colors for 40L$ only! Yep that's right!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge Catchup 33,34,35,- Part 1

Eeeeep! I fell behind again on the color challenge after all that promising to myself that I would keep on track. I'm roughly 7 weeks behind which is forcing me to combine multiple weeks into one post. I got the idea from Beulah Mills, friend and blogger, who was also slightly behind. Thank you for the idea and motivation to get back on track with Luna's 52 Weeks of Color challenge.

I've also been on a bit on a blogging vacation during the month of July. I didn't originally plan on it, but there were so many RL Summer activities that blogging became really hard to fit in. Many apologies if you dropped something on me and I didn't get a chance to blog it. I'm slowly sorting through my inventory and will manage to include many items in upcoming posts.

Mauve- Week 34

Mooo for your Monday



Miss Moo is here to make you Monday a little more....bovine? What can I say I have a strange need to blog as Miss Moo on Monday, it just makes sense in my head. Anyway She is decked out in some nice goodies, some older than others. Lets start at the top and work down shall we? The hair, while still technically on the new side, it isn't the newest release from Exile. That being said it is still lovely and stretches nicely for my big 'ol head. Now onto my necklace, it's from fri.day at the Albero gacha festival. If you haven't been you really should, it's so addictive. If you are lucky like I am you have friends who shower you with their extras ♥ You have until the 10th to get over there so don't wait around! Oh and speaking of running out of time, while the Seasons Hunt may be over if you hurry over to The Secret Store you may be able to find Steve the Shark and score yourself some shorts like I am wearing. And last but not least my shirt, it is an old standby from Pink Outfitters....it's yellow so of course I love it.… Read the restMiss Moo

But could I save the settings to my computer so I can share them? nooo!!!  I can save them to use for myself, but after trying Firestorm, Kirstens, the Official new Secondlife viewer, the old SL 1.23 viewer I have given up trying to save them.  But Strawberry Singh came to the rescue and made the file for me, so if you would like to download it you can after the cut.  All the images are RAW SL shots, and the same everything, just moving the camera around no editing at all. Some of you may know that I usually take my pictures on location, with SL builds as a backdrop, but when I do need to take ‘studio’ shots I use this setting, and the best thing about it is you dont need anything else but your pose stand.

Fireflies in the Night Sky

On 1st August 2011 · By Harlow · With Leave a comment
In Fashion, Harlow Heslop, Second Life · Tags
Happy August everyone! Wow. I can’t believe it’s actually August.  As we enter the heart of the summertime one of the first things that crosses me mind is fireflies!  [HeZ] has created an amazing and versatile firefly machine that is absolutely wonderful. The fireflies have numerous option available to customize them to your liking. Instead of using particles, the fireflies are a temporary rezzer.  This gives them a more unique and look and individuality within each firefly.  They look and behave like real fireflies in the sky.  They are menu driven as well, and have a lot of options for tweaking including color, speed, and number of fireflies emitted.  I picked random as the color because I love anything that’s colorful!  I think these fireflies would be perfect on a fantasy sim somewhere. If you want a quick purchase you can find the fireflies on the marketplace!  For only 250 lindens I’d say they are quite a steal. … Read the rest

Summer Swimwear with Shiki

Nothing beats summer, other than a nice day at the beach. So grab your suntan lotion, wear your flip-flop or wedges and lets get going to the beach. Today I'm wearing two of the newest swimwear designs from Shiki summer collection. For the first look, I've choose this swimming suit with pareo which I pair up with Flip Flop from Maitreya. I love this photo because I finally able to capture myself with my eyes close (by accident). Yay. For the second look, I'm wearing the bikini and paired it up with my new sunglasses (well new to me) from Kumari. More on my style notes
