Welcome to Zodiac

Zodiac is a new monthly event bought to you by the Hottie Cooterati Experience and, of course, as the name gives away each cycle is based on an astrology sign.  This month's sign is the Leo. 

Leo's being represented by the Lion, often consider themselves to be the monarchy of humanity, stubborn, fierce and often relentless in their pursuits of grandeur and dominance.  They will never back down from a fight and generally live by the motto of what you see, is what you get.


Yet like all signs, there is polar side to their personalities.  Leo's are warm of spirit, eager for action and driven by their desire to be loved.  Proud and loyal, when a Leo loves you, they love you with everything they have.


Each designer in the cycle has offered up an array of Leo inspired goodies for your pleasure.  Some of the designers in this cycle are:

Exposeur
Elymode
Glitterati
Kyoot
Aura
Mons
Handverk
Miamai
and many more.

The skin i'm wearing in the both of the above shots is available from Mon exclusives at the this month's Zodiac event.… Read the rest

Retro Funk at Vintage Fair

[Click for larger image]
It's right around the corner!  Shopkeepers are burning the midnight oil, putting on the shine, pulling out all the stops, polishing the racks, rolling out the carpet, and bringing out their finest vintage fashions and retro wares for your shopping pleasure.  It's Vintage Baby!  And with three full sims bursting at the seams with awesomeness, the Vintage Fair 2012 is going to be an event you won't want to miss!

Vintage Fair 2012 opens August 4th through the 29th, and today I'd like to give you a little sneak preview of  some of what's to come from a few of the fabulous creators you'll find there. Today's little number is the "Funky Girl" dress and "Peaceful Flower Necklace - Woodland" by Curious Kitties. This is a mesh dress and totally shag-tastic with the 60's influenced print and wide vinyl belt.  Shake and shimmy the night away and don't worry, this thoughtfully designed mesh comes carefully crafted with an underside to the skirt as well as the bust area, so there's no peek-a-boo invisible hollow av underside to worry about.… Read the rest

Hair Fair 2012 – Bandana Day

Today is the last day to take advantage of Hair Fair 2012 and it's also Bandana Day.
What is that? It's a day dedicated to all the people who lost their hair due to illness or medical treatment not wearing a hairstyle but a Bandana.
In all the Hair Fair sims you can find several stalls where a great variety of bandana made by several designers and residents are available. They are sold for 50L each and proceeds will go to Wig For Kids.
Let's show our solidarity then, we can be pretty wearing a bandana and it can be turned in an amazing fashion accessory when the day is over, adding hairbases or braids attachment.

Hair Fair 2012 – Omhai, LeLutka & Clawtooth

This will be my last Hair Fair post for this year, I would have loved the opportunity to show you more but sadly time is running out as Hair Fair is in it's last day for 2012!  As always, its been an absolute pleasure to be a member of the blogging community promoting Hair Fair this year and just when you thought it was all over just remember only 365 days until Hair Fair 2013 :D!

 Ohmai - Chloe, Gillian & Myer Stars Collide
I simply can't walk past anything created by Anya Ohmai and her hair at Hair Fair this year was true to form.  I think these three styles were the only non mesh hair I purchased all fair but they were simply too cute to say no too!


LeLutka - Magdalen, Salome & Versage
You can always count on LeLutka to come up with something on trend yet new and exciting, Salome is possibly one of my favourites of the fair this year, totally worth checking out!
 Clawtooth - Starlight, Going Steady & Serendipity
And last but not least is the ever amazing Clawtooth who seems to master the art of beautiful flowing feminine hair better than almost anyone!… Read the rest

My fight against overheating is not over yet and I must confess that usually it's the laptop who wins, not me... I rarely manage to take more than one or two pics, sometimes I just dress up and it's already melting, wtf?

Besides that, Hair Fair 2012 is still running for a couple of days, and I want to show you some more styles I love before it ends. I'll try to do another 1-2 entries by tomorrow, that is July the 29th, Bandana Day, a day to show your sympathy to the people who lost their hair wearing a bandana.

Today I'm sharing with you something from EMO-tions and Sugarsmack. Let's have a look!
Please remember that your purchases at Hair Fair 2012 will help the fund raising for Wigs For Kids.

Hair: EMO-tions @ Hair Fair 2012 - Phillis - Dark brown - 245L
This hairstyle has the lovely feature of being 2 in one. When you are tired of your long curls on your back, you can just tie them up with a click!

Hair Fair 2012 – Lamb, Fashionably Dead & LaViere

Hair Fair is heading into its last 24 hoursish so now seems like the perfect opportunity to remind of you of some of the amazing styles that have made this years Fair a roaring success.

Lamb - Wild at Heart, Falling, Blue Velvet & In Heaven
Lamb has 4 female styles and 1 male style up for grabs at Hair Fair this year.  If you read my blog regularly you will know I'm a huge fan of all things Lamb and this years offerings are no exception, however I wouldn't be doing my job properly if I didn't warn you that there is a slight rigging problem with the Wild at Heart and Blue Velvet styles.  This doesn't impact the wearability of the stunning hair styles generally, but some poses will cause the hair to disappear into the side of your head.
Fashionably Dead - Beanie Baby, Saturday, Maire, Garden and Sunday
I'm always excited to see what Fashionably Dead offers up at Hair Fair time and this year Toast Bard has gone for some simply beautiful and feminine styles that are sure to please even the most discerning fashionista.… Read the rest

Wide Awake


Sometimes I do my best work when I'm supposed to be sleeping... unlike other people who do amazing things all the time.  I'm talking about the new Cassiopea skin by Aida Ewing of Glam Affair, and (wow!) this is a gorgeous skin!



She's a darker shade than I normally would wear, but being half asleep I bought the wrong one, and now that I have her, I'm absolutely in love with her.



The rest of my ensemble was gathered together mostly at Collabor88, so hurry over while they've still got the current collection, or you'll miss out on some great deals!



Feeling like a goddess, I went in search of a beautiful and surreal place to take pictures in and found the Mysterious Wave art installation.


And now... off to sleep I go...

Goodnight!

Hair Fair – Epoque & Wasabi Pills

Hello my sweets, firstly I must apologise for the lack of posting and particularly for the delay of posting for Hair Fair.  Shortly after my last post, I pinched a nerve in my back and shoulder which rendered me pretty much useless.  Fortunately I'm on the mend now and have lots and lots and lots of hair to inundate you with... aren't you lucky?

First up we have the amazing Epoque


With 4 amazing styles (3 female, 1 male) on offer this year, I really couldn't go past epoque meshy goodness, you really shouldn't either!




Next up is the always amazing Wasabi Pills.


  I have to be honest, I didn't really know a lot about Wasabi Pills until mesh launched, but MissAllSunday Lemon has smashed mesh hair out of the ball park and I just adore her for it.  She also has 4 amazing styles up for grabs at Hair Fair and I love each and every single one of them!


Hair Fair is open now and runs through until the 29th of July.  With a portion of proceeds benefiting Wigs for Kids, I really can not promote this event enough.  If you live under a rock and haven't been to Hair Fair for 2012 yet...… Read the rest

Sirens of the Sea



The perfect music for this set... please have a listen, and enjoy!  Oceanlab - Sirens of the Sea


Take my hand, take my hand, yeah take my hand
Follow me, follow me, yeah let's goTo the sand, to the sand the purest sandInto the sea, into the sea, yeah let's go...

Out beyond the water's edgeFar across the coral ledgeUnderneath the diamond dancing lights...

Chase the world from far belowSilent sleeping indigoDrifting down into the endless night...

I can not resist your call... 


Today I wanted to just log in quick and share a few things, but I got swept away in the moment.  It's something that Sea and Sky and Sand always do to me... even in a virtual world.  
Sending a big thank you out to Strawberry Singh for her PicMonkey tip, without which these pictures wouldn't have nearly as much awesomesauce.  Wow what a big difference a few clicks can make!  Thank you Strawberry!

Hello Ladies!
Although my RL still keeps me away from Internet a lot, I couldn't miss one of the most amazing events of the year... Hair Fair 2012!

Running from July the 14th till July the 29th, the greatest SL hair designer will showcase their brand new creations and will raise funds for Wig For Kids, a charity organization taking care of children who lost their hair due to medical conditions or treatments.
In each designer's store you will find indications about the percentage of your purchase which is being donated.

When you land at Hair Fair, please remember to wear the less you can, avoiding scripted items. A low lag outfit is provided at the landing point, and don't forget to grab a map or you will risk to miss some of your favourite stores!

A huge thank you to all the designers who had their stores ready for the Bloggers Day, your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Today I'm featuring two lovely mesh hairstyles from Wasabi Pills. More will come soon!

I’m back… and promoting One Voice



I've had to take a break from Second Life for a few months, in order to concentrate on getting my RL health back on track.

I was slowly easing my way back into my Second Life this month, when I heard about a disturbing situation regarding a copyright infringement dispute involving skin designer Gala Phoenix of Curio:

Curio's Gala Phoenix is currently in the midst of legal issues which have resulted in her content being removed from the grid, pending the outcome of her legal battle. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) process in Second Life requires that when there is legal action taken against your content, Linden Lab will remove it from the grid until a ruling is made. Gala's fellow content creators have come together to host a fundraiser to help with the substantial legal costs she will incur in contesting these baseless claims.

This fundraiser, One Voice, is currently underway on the Mesh sim, and runs through July 22.

I've decided to contribute four outfits to the event.… Read the rest
