Something quick

for items used, please see the credits below

Happy Tuesday Sweets,

hope you all have survived Monday, and are still refreshed for a new week.  I for myself feel refreshed, and really relaxed after the past weekend. But, new week … you can’t beat me, even with you putting my workshedule full !

But, I promise to have a little moment from time to time  to show you some of the great finds on the second life grid. My todays look is a mix and match from “HairFair 2012 ” and from the currently swinging Seraphim Turns 1 Birthday Hunt.

And ladys, my dress from Intrepid is really stunning. I love all the details in the elegant shape. Yes, this dress is the  gift from Intrepid, they have hidden in their lovely cupcake for the Seraphim Birthday Hunt. The dress comes in female standard sizing.

But please remeber, that the Seraphim Turns 1 Hunt is a 10L$ hunt, but most of the stores have hidden their cupcakes really easy.

And yes, by now everyone should have reconized, that I’m an Alice Project Fangirl, so it was a must to visit the booth  from Alice Project on Hair Fair 2012. There you will find the Tessa Hair as Freebie. This hair comes with an easy to handle coloring hud, to change your haircolor within a blink of an eye.

That will be all for today my sweets, now sadly some work calls for me, but with so many things currently going on inside second life, I’m sure to read you very soon. Have a great Tuesday and enjoy your shopping spree inworld.

Somewhere over the Rainbow

for credits, please see below the blogpost

Happy Saturday Sweets,

you know what, sometimes when I start to blog a lot of the nice finds from different events I have a song turning in my head. And today is one of those blogposts. Today an alltime classic song for me is spinning around. “Somewhere over the Rainbow” – from the Wizard of Oz. And, yes I felt like Dorothy (wonderful potraited by Judy Garland) while taking these pictures.

But now, I better should tell you something about the “Oz”  I’ve created myself inworld. And yes, this post is a very good example of how you can mix & match different sales and hunts. So let us start.

The hair for my todays look is another freebie from the currently running HairFair 2012. It’s The Mel Hair in Almond from Milana. This neat haircut comes in four different colurs in the pack.

The dress I’m wearing is a gift in the currently  running Seraphim Turns One Birthday Hunt. This colorful mesh dress is from Somnia. It is a special edition of the neat Argyluarian Dress exspecially created for the Seraphim Birthday Hunt. It comes in female mesh standard sizing, with matching alpha layer.

Another word about the Seraphim Birthday Hunt: Please keep in mind this hunt  is not a free hunt. Every hunt item on the track costs you 10L$, but with all the wonderful creations the designers have put in the little birthday cupcakes hidden at participating stores it’s more than worth it.

The great prop (or more a living room) is also a gift in the Seraphim Turns One Birthday Hunt. It is from CIRCA and it includes next to the wonderful setup (a big couch prefilled with different poses – 11 in total),  the decoration. This gift makes a perfect add on to your personal home.

So much for my “Wizzard of Oz” moment from today. I’ll keep humming “Somewhere over the Rainbow” while I continue to explore the colorful word of second life.  For you I have preapred the credits of the items used in this blogpost.

Read you soon Sweets !

The Gallery Gift Shop Gallery

exhibition_1

The Gallery Gift Shop turns one – and like Mondra already told you there is a hunt going on on the Gallery Gift Shop Ground. And this is one of the cutest ideas ever. While you are hunting for picture frames you not only get the gifts from the merchants – you also get the frames. And most merchants have put their portrait in the frames to personalize it. This gave me the possibility to make my own Gallery Gift Shop Gallery with the artists and merchants from the Gallery Gift Shop.

Todays look also comes from The Gallery Gift Shop – and matching the anniversary theme 22769 ~ casual couture offer the “champaign supernova” mesh outfit containing the longsleeve and the champaign chinos. The longsleeve and the chinos can become worn seperately of course. The tux leather loafers are from NYU and the scarf comes from Tee*fy.

I took the pictures in the abiss mesh studio apartement – alas I altered a few things like the art provided with the prefab. I replaced it with the “Hallucinatio botanicus” painting from Gabrielle Swindlehurst, who is a Gallery Gift Shop artist from day one of the outstanding sales event.

If you have not yet – you simply must pay the Gallery Gift Shop a visit. It is brand new – a complete new build and enviroment which is a mishmash between an art gallery, a park, a shop and a hangout – very cute and adorably done.

Gallery Hunting

for credits please below the blogpost

Happy Tuesday Sweets,

yesterday a new round of the Gallery Gift Shop has started. But this cycle is a very special one: The Gallery Gift Shop celebrates its first anniversary on the grid. And for celebrations of this special event, the artist and merchants have made next to their regular items a small huntgift and have hidden them in a pictureframe. This hunt is the perfect excuse to walk around the newly designed Gallery Gift Shop. There are so many nice corners to explore! Hints are provided via notecard, you can get at the entrance of the new build. Also the merchants have robbed their inventorys and displayed (nearly) all items they have ever offered at The Gallery Gift Shop in the past circles.

Now I have told you so much about the Gallery Gift Shop, but you should also make a visit at the Hair Fair 2012. This year every vendor on the fairground give an percentage of each sale to Wigs For Kids. Next to all the new releases there, at some of the boothes you can find goodiebags with examples of their work included. But, please keep in mind, that you maybe need a few tries to teleport to Hair Fair 2012. This years Hairfair expands over four complete sims, so there is a lot to explore and discover.

But, now to my todays very classic look, wich is a mix&match of the two events.  Let me start with the awesome dress I’m wearing today. It’s from 22769 ~ casual couture and is available for 160 L$ at  The Gallery Gift Shop. The Anastacia Dress comes in mesh standard sizing and with two different versions of the alpha layer included. As usual 22769 have included the alpha textures too. The envelope bag I’m wearing is the free huntgift from 22769 for the anniversary hunt!

Yes, I have got a new and very classy and elegant look for todays blogpost.  And my new haircut comes for free. It is from the Goodiebag greatfull offered by Zibska. Next to the Nan Hair in five colors you find the great earrings I’m wearing.

Also my todays pose is from the Hairfair. Amacci has included in their freebiebag four classic modelposes. Two for men and two for girls. But to be honest, you didn’t see, that I have  using a guys poses for this entry. So I would rather label them as unisex.

That’s all for today my sweets. Hope each of you have a great tuesday ahead or behind you. See you around !

Hair Fair for the guys

hairfair_1

I guess everyone by now has noticed that the Hair Fair 2012 has started. And of course this event seems to be a fair mostly for the ladies. However – I was brave enough to teleport there and find some stuff for lads also – some surprising, some interesting and some of course fabulous. But first things first: the Hair Fair 2012 has a webpage and what I really love about the organisation of this event is the hints page, or if you want to call it that way, the fair etiquette. You can find it here and I encourage you to read and follow the tips and ideas of the organisation team because it reduced the lag, that usually comes with events like the hairfair, dramatically. I have a pretty old computer and there are for sure better internet connections then the one I use – but I experienced no major lag issues and my purchases also did not delay. Also – I completely avoided any clothing at all except of a body alpha layer. So if you have been at the hairfair and came across a floating head – jep, that was me.

Surprises: Like said – after following the instructions of the organisers I experienced nearly no lag at all – and that was a surprise for me. Another surprise was the lack of some hair designers I expected to be at the fair like i.e. Dura. I also did not expect to meet so many fellow men at the fairground.

The following finds are strictly my personal taste – there are of course some more mens hair to find. So lets start with above picture. This is a new release from [COLORS] called 57 (Black Pack). It is sculpted the old way and I love the overall look of it. Also with 100 L$ per colorpack it is not overexpensive.

hairfair_2

From left to right:

Magpie: This was a complete experiment cause the hair is supposed to be womens hair. But be honest: It is short, it is curled – it is pretty much unisex. I tried a demo and even tho I was (of course) not able to modify it I assumed that it could fit me with a few minor tweaks. Also 120 L$ is okay for an experiment. And see – it works. I just made the hair a bit bigger and I have a trendy kind of short curly haircut. Definitely one of my surprise finds on the Hair Fair.

[COLORS]: (again) This time with the Freebie they offer in their booth called FREE D.

*ARGRACE*: Straw Fedora – yet another Fedora, but well – I love this one cause the texturing on it is excellent. It is also a Freebie at the Hair Fair and it comes in three colors (blue, khaki and purple)

[INK]: NATUM (white) and another Freebie from the Hairfair. The cut of the hair grew on me and the color can work for special occasions.

Talking about Freebies: The necklace in all pictures is the freebie at the booth of {fashionably dead} and is called “Abstract Bird Necklace”. And also the poses I used for this blogpose are indeed a Freebie at the Hairfair and come from Amacci. The eyes instead are not free but a steal at the current Mens Dept. It is the mesh eyes from Poetic Colors (pearl aurora).
