A Hot Night, Hennessy, and Me!

A Hot Night, Hennessy, and Me!

It’s been a hot summer, so far!! The days are long and the sun is high in the sky for what seems like forever, burning down on the land with it’s unforgiving heat! We’ve had little rain, so everything seems scorched with the grass yellowing and that new fresh look of spring long gone! On days that it gets up to +30°C and higher, are the worst. We tell ourselves that it’s nice because it’s a ‘dry’ heat but really. dry or not, it’s still flippin’ hot! The nights that don’t cool down are the hardest to take. I count on cool nights to get the temperature down in the house with a nice cool breeze coming in the windows, but every now and then the night just won’t cool down! When it’s 6 Am and the thermometer already says +25°C, there’s going to be no escape! I know to anyone from the south western States are laughing at me right now, but you have to remember that the winters here are frigid so the difference in summer to winter is sometimes 75°C and more! So when we say it’s hot, it may not be to others, but for us in the great white north, it’s HOT! My answer to this hot summer night, is to strip off my pyjama top, grab a smooth and delicious bottle of Hennessy, and sit on the dock with my feet in the water! I’m not sure how long I’ll sit out here, but with the stars in the sky, the soft breeze on my bare skin, and a little bit of a buzz, it might be awhile!

I’d like to welcome Imitation to my little family of Featured Designers!! Their bento poses and pose props are a pleasure to work with with natural and expressive poses along with bento hand positions that really add to a look! The devil’s in the details, so they say! 🙂 I’m using one of the seven poses from the ‘Kendra’ set, which includes the bottle of Hennessy to pose with. This set is available now at the Imitation main store and Market Place.

The gorgeous butterfly tattoo on my shoulder is ‘Morpho’ and it’s a recent release from Metamorphoses Tattoo. It includes 2 tones of ink and is compatible with classic avatars plus just about every mesh body known to man! The beautiful details, the soft lines, and the fact that it’s a butterfly all make this tattoo perfect for the barely there summer tops! Love!

I’m completely in love with the ‘Mila’ hair from [KoKoLoReS]! This is from the Balayage pack and the detailed texturing is just phenomenal!! It’s available until July 16 at the Hair Fair 2017.

I’m keeping it cool with just pyjama bottoms for my outing! I hope the neighbours are away tonight!! These are the Slumber Party Shorts, pinstripe from the Slumber Party gacha set by Tres Blah!

My whole look begins with the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

We’re Having a Heat Wave!

We're Having a Heat Wave!

Yes, a tropical heat wave!! Really, we are! Although where I am it’s usually a dry heat! No ocean breeze, no humidity to make my hair a big frizz ball, and no pineapples growing! I could grow watermelon, but I didn’t this year, so unfortunate when I see what I could have done with them!! My sister, Gillian Galicia, and I having some fun with the ‘Fruity’ pose/prop from Foxcity, here! It’s available at SaNaRae until July 18! The fruit is transfer so you can easily share with someone who needs a bit of a cover up while on the beach! You may be asking yourself if we’re out romping on a beach without anything on, you can check out Gillian’s blog to see for yourself! 😀

Here’s the short list of what we’re wearing! 🙂

Me:

The ‘Bones’ hair is from [KoKoLoReS] and is a Hair Fair 2017 exclusive release! HF’17 is on now and [KoKoLoReS] has 6 new releases, all incredible!!

The Sweetberry Necklace, gold, from !NFINITY, is such a summery addition to an outfit! Especially when it’s about all you’re wearing! 🙂 It’s 100% mesh, HUD driven with 8 solid bead and 8 dual bead colours, and it’s scripted for easy resizing!

I’m wearing the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada! The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

My eyeshadow is from the Smokey Shadow pack from Izzie’s. And my eyes are the Nissa Eyes from Zombie Suicide.

Gillian:

*hair – ASO! Tomi, Dark Brown pack at Hair Fair 2017 (all LMs are here)
*skin applier – Glam Affair
* eyeshadow – Izzie’s
*lipstick – Pink Fuel
*backdrop – Katink

There’s Nothing Like a Day at the Beach!

There's Nothing Like a Day at the Beach!

The moist cooling breeze coming in off the water and cooling sun warmed skin! The smell of sun block heavy in the air, that’s SPF 150 for me, please! The sand that always manages to creep onto the towel or blanket and find it’s way to places that aren’t really conducive to comfort! The fellow sunbathers and kids playing gets annoying after awhile, but hopefully a good book will keep me occupied! I need a huge bottle of water with me, gotta stay hydrated, you know! I’m not much of a swimmer, but I do enjoy wading along the shore feeling the sand and cool water on my feet! I actually haven’t been to any kind of beach in a lot of years, but when I was a kid I did enjoy the time spent along the lake during holidays, waiting to see signs of Ogopogo(I never did)! 😀

First off, the one thing that’s exciting right now is that the 2017 edition of Hair Fair is open!! This is the event I wait patiently for every year, having stuffed my purse with Lindens to shop until I drop, or I’m broke! Usually broke comes first! 😀 [KoKoLoReS] has SIX incredible exclusives for the event and they’re all my favourites! I had no idea which one to wear first! I settled on ‘Mila’ from the naturals HUD! The short sides and front with a nice casual mid length back is a no fuss style perfect for summer! Check out the Hair Fair blog for complete information including slurls and maps! You’ll find [KoKoLoReS] at the ‘Blonde‘ sim!

I enjoy the beach much more in Second Life than in real life! I searched around and found a nice little private beach at Warm Springs for these pictures! I’m looking pretty, relaxed, and just happy to be alive, here! What got a trip to the beach in my mind is the beautiful Ivy Cover Up from NX-Nardcotix! It’s available now at Summerfest’17 and is compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies. I love the high cut leg and the really loose and flowing top with a slightly cinched in waist. It’s perfect for relaxing after the swimming is done! Summerfest ’17 runs until July 20.

With such a sexy little cover up I couldn’t not show the back! The deep V neck back leaves room to show off a pretty tattoo, like this one! It’s the ‘Yesterday Tomorrow’ tattoo from L.c Tattoos and with the pack containing four ink tones it can be as new or as faded as you want! It’s Omega compatible so it works on pretty much any mesh body! You know me, I love bird tattoos! 🙂

You may be wondering why I’m so happy, well I’ll tell you! For my birthday, a week or so ago, my very generous sister, Gillian Galicia, gifted me the Bubblegum for the Catwa bento heads! This look is one of the many included in the gum chewing animations included! Thank you sistah!

The ultra roomy Huguette Bag from C’est la vie is perfect for a trip to the beach!

The pose I’ve used here is from Overlow Poses and with the addition of the bag after posing, the arm is then posed to hold it!

My look all starts with the Lilo bento head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone! I’ve added some eye make up from the ‘Hypnotic Eyeshadow’ set which is available now at The Makeover Room! Both skin and eye shadow are from Avada(formerly Sinful Curves Skins). The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

DEMO Like It’s 1999!

DEMO Like It's 1999!

With the 2017 edition of Hair Fair fast approaching there is something you can do to make it easier for yourself when it opens! The Hair Fair 2017 DEMO Group is open for business, so join now and on Friday you’ll be able to try on all the new exclusives that’ll be at HF’17, without the lag and frustration that comes with it! It’s hard enough to get into Hair Fair in the first few days, why make it harder on yourself to have to demo everything when you get there. You can be prepared for, and enjoy, the shopping and the great atmosphere that comes with the Hair Fair! Check out the Hair Fair 2017 blog for more info!

I’ve added a very basic shot of me trying on a demo! This isn’t a hair that will be at HF’17, it’s just one that I’d wanted to try! It’s ‘Anet’ from {Limerence} and I like it! 😀

I’m wearing the ‘Michonne’ tank top from erratic. It’s available now at ~uber~.

I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada(formerly Sinful Curves Skins). The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya!

Hey You!! Texture a Bandana, Eh!!

Hey You!!  Texture a Bandana, Eh!!

It’s almost the middle of June and Hair Fair 2017 is fast approaching!! It’s time to roll those sleeves up and get to work! I’m sorry to say that I won’t be helping out with the work this year! At least not in the capacity I’m talking about here! There’s a call out for everyone to texture a bandana for Bandana Day! These bandanas are going to be sold during Hair Fair 2017, with all proceeds going to Wigs for Kids, which is such a worthy cause! There are kits available, free of charge, and all you need to do is create a texture for it! I make it sound easy, but please know that I have absolutely no skills in this area! I do have Gimp downloaded on my computer but I think it has a glitch in it! Every time I open it I hear a chuckle and a screen comes on that says, ‘Yea, right!’. 😀 So, maybe one day I can participate, but it won’t be this year. You can get your kits in-world here or get more information on the website.

Along with the ad, I found a couple of pictures I took for Bandana Day for HF ’15 and ’16! The picture from HF’15(top right) goes back a couple years, so this is the original classic avatar look I had! I’m wearing the Orchid Bandana from Boudicca Amat and couldn’t look lovelier! The lower right is from HF’16 and I’m wearing the Butterfly Bandana from Moon Amore. I’ve changed a bit!! 🙂 You can find the credits for these looks on their original posts by clicking HF’15 and HF’16.

The 2017 edition of the Hair Fair runs July 1-16 and you know it’s an event not to be missed!!
