Hair Fair Demo Group

Last years Hair Fair Demo Group was such a huge success, and we got so many IM’s and Notecards saying that people tried and found new favourites they may not have seen otherwise. We were so glad to have that feedback, so again this year, the day before Hair Fair, the designers will be sending their DEMOS ahead of time.

HUD Of Greatness!

Yay for new gadgets and gizmos…well new to me anyways! I read about the Komrad HUD from Kari, on Berry’s blog then drooled over the Flickr group before hitting up Xtreet to make it mine!

Summer Rain

What a total timesaver, you really could just snap a shot, crop out the HUD and upload to FLickr. Are you listening Ms Winx?!!! Anyways, you get a rainy pic as Minime and I got caught in an epic summer storm yesterday evening…we were like drowned rats by the time we got home! At least in SL I can look amazing in the rain :P

Newness!!

Here I am again, 5am blogging FTW!!! Minime has just gotten over a nasty bout of Gastro, which has seen me spend the last 2 days washing every bed set in the house a couple of times over, scrubbing and disinfecting everything in sight and cleaning up projectile vomit….I’m just so fashion :P I’m still trying to get my bodyclock back to normal after waking every couple of hours to hold her hair back for her, hence my shopping and blogging at the weirdest of hours!

My dress is one of the new releases this weekend from The Seahole. If you head to the mainstore before Sunday, you can grab it at a heavily reduced price. I got several colours and theyre all just as beautiful. The hair is just adorable, new from Elikatira. Theres something so cute about braids about to fall out, it’s a style that works incredibly well in SL. This one sports a colour change headband and elastics.

The bags are from House Of Fox, a store I discovered at the Ch1c event. You have to fatpack them, it’s impossible to buy just one! My gorgeous shoes are from Ricielli. I love this store, although I hadnt been there for the best part of a year. The clothes always looked so amazing, but never ever fitted me right, even after modding. Now they have nifty resize scripts which makes it much easier for me to work with the prims. My 2 gripes about the shoes are 1) there are no demos, and 2) there are no fatpacks. Other than that, the textures are outstanding and the choice of colours is great.

I’ve paired the Muse Blouse from The Seahole with another of my LeLutka purchases. The blouse is all floaty chiffony gorgeousness and comes with a matching bangle…yay!

Droolworthy

My god, just when I think I’m done shopping for a bit, someone goes and releases something I have to have! So this is why, even though I’ve spent over 50k this month, I crept off the other night mid conversation to check out the summer collection at LeLutka.

lelutka 3

This my favorite outfit, the Safari pants are to die for, and as Sasy says, the shirt is a total must have. I’ve shown it here without the pec attachment for a tucked in look, but it looks just as beautiful with. The shorts come in several versions in the folder, scripted, sized, along with several alpha layers. If youre a viewer 2 user you can layer up on alphas. If youre a phoenix, or other viewer user, the alphas are copy/mod, so you can add them to your shoe alphas. So many possibilities!

I so wanted a new pair of Jeans. I’ve been wearing my Plastik jeans for 2 years, and I was long overdue a change! The Caprica‘s fitted that bill for me nicely, coming with 2 versions in the folder with 3 different kinds of cuffs, so you really get your money’s worth. Oh the cardigan!! I have a RL staple just like it and I’m stoked I can wear it in SL now. The RL version gets me stopped in the street on a regular basis, and the SL version is just as stunning.

The Soho shorts can be super cute, or super sexy depending on how you choose to wear them….and LOL @ them being called Soho :P I paired them with the Requiem shirt in Ocean, for a splash of colour. I love teal with tans, browns and nudes, it just works so well. The shoes I dont really need to tell you about, I’ve seen them on just about everyone while out and about, for a very good reason. They are the awesome! This is just a small sample of what I picked up, I cant wait to get into mixing and matching!

Leezu @ Ch1c

Not too many words today, it’s 5am, this post has been sitting in drafts for the best part of a week, and the pics have been languishing in private on my flickr. Bad Ash is bad.

I’m not generally a gown type of girl, although when I first joined SL, there always seemed to be a party to get dressed up for…not so much now. However, this spectacular dress by Leezu for the Ch1c event begged me to buy it.

leezu 2

It also gave me a chance to break out some of my incredible Mandala jewelery. A huge portion of my Mandala folder came to me via Sasy as a christmas present in ’09. We oohed and ahhhed over that store, the vendor ads alone had me deadset drooling. I’m wearing the Lotus set, and they suit the dress so perfectly. Ok, no more talky now, gotta grab an hour’s sleep before minime wakes up!

More today from the Ch1c Birthday event where (surprise surprise) I spent a fortune!

ch1c_018

I love love maxi dresses in RL so this one from District was the perfect choice for me. I’ve paired it with a gorgeous necklace from Sigma Jewels, a new to me store. I’m not really a jewelry person in SL, it has to be seriously fabulous for me to consider buying it. This particular piece matched perfectly and wasnt too over the top, I love it!

ch1c_022

I’m still obsessing over props and decor, my beloved pose and props folder still hasnt come back so I’m slowly going round repurchasing stuff, praying for a redelivery system and adding new things to my collection. LISP is one such store that I’m so happy to have discovered along the way, such great decor and props, as you can see from the pics. Now I gotta get back to my meeroos, as it’s just been made public that the more attention you pay them, the better chances you have of breeding something great. Send in the search party if I’m not back in a week :P

The Spider And The Fly

ch1c_032

Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Spider to the Fly,
‘Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I’ve a many curious things to show when you are there.”
Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne’er come down again.”

“I’m sure you must be weary, dear, with soaring up so high;
Will you rest upon my little bed?” said the Spider to the Fly.
“There are pretty curtains drawn around; the sheets are fine and thin,
And if you like to rest awhile, I’ll snugly tuck you in!”
Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “for I’ve often heard it said,
They never, never wake again, who sleep upon your bed!”

Said the cunning Spider to the Fly, ” Dear friend what can I do,
To prove the warm affection I ‘ve always felt for you?
I have within my pantry, good store of all that’s nice;
I’m sure you’re very welcome — will you please to take a slice?”
“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “kind Sir, that cannot be,
I’ve heard what’s in your pantry, and I do not wish to see!”

“Sweet creature!” said the Spider, “you’re witty and you’re wise,
How handsome are your gauzy wings, how brilliant are your eyes!
I’ve a little looking-glass upon my parlour shelf,
If you’ll step in one moment, dear, you shall behold yourself.”
“I thank you, gentle sir,” she said, “for what you ‘re pleased to say,
And bidding you good morning now, I’ll call another day.”

The Spider turned him round about, and went into his den,
For well he knew the silly Fly would soon come back again:
So he wove a subtle web, in a little corner sly,
And set his table ready, to dine upon the Fly.
Then he came out to his door again, and merrily did sing,
“Come hither, hither, pretty Fly, with the pearl and silver wing;
Your robes are green and purple — there’s a crest upon your head;
Your eyes are like the diamond bright, but mine are dull as lead!”

Alas, alas! how very soon this silly little Fly,
Hearing his wily, flattering words, came slowly flitting by;
With buzzing wings she hung aloft, then near and nearer drew,
Thinking only of her brilliant eyes, and green and purple hue —
Thinking only of her crested head — poor foolish thing! At last,
Up jumped the cunning Spider, and fiercely held her fast.
He dragged her up his winding stair, into his dismal den,
Within his little parlour — but she ne’er came out again!

And now dear little children, who may this story read,
To idle, silly flattering words, I pray you ne’er give heed:
Unto an evil counsellor, close heart and ear and eye,
And take a lesson from this tale, of the Spider and the Fly.

The Spider and the Fly
