The World of Facebook!

The World of Facebook!

Weird, isn’t it? I have a couple Facebook accounts I scan through everyday, just to see what’s new and happening. I’m not addicted, not even close. But I like to scroll through my Second Life Facebook account to see what some of my favourite bloggers are doing and what the designers I follow are up to. It’s a wealth of information for Second Life, really. Personally, not so much. I saw that my Aunt shared a post about a lost dog in her area, my accountant is now on holidays, and a friend likes a cinnamon bun recipe! I don’t have very interesting friends in my real life! 😦 But on my SL account, it’s a whole other world, it’s opened up new ways of thinking for me, I see things that I never want to see again and can’t get out of my head. I’ve followed some pages that have the need to share articles that will ‘shock’, ‘amaze’, and ‘astound’ you. You know the saying, ‘you can’t unring a bell’, it’s true in the world of Facebook. As I scrolled down this morning I saw Justin Beiber throwing up on stage, I didn’t want or need to see that. I saw someone picking blackheads while asking the question, do you like it! 😮 And at this point, I have to admit that I’m now tired of reading all the quotes, blurbs, statements, and poems about how strong I am, how much of a woman I am, and how I don’t need any man. I sometimes wonder what we have become as a society, then I look at Facebook and just shake my head.

Today I’m looking rather minimalistic, and dapper I might add! It all starts with the incredible ‘Kalon’ hair from [BAD HAIR DAY]. I’m totally taken with the colour options available with it having two layers to independently colour. I’m usually not a fan of hair that’s not a natural colour, but these textures are some of my all time favourite colours. I opted for the Black & White pack here, but I’m now thinking I should have splurged on the fatpack. {BAD HAIR DAY] has only men’s hair at this time, but since I’d much rather wear unisex or men’s hair, I’m completely in my element here!

The August round of The Chapter Four is in full swing and this time I’m featuring the Jen Set from ~Nerido~. It’s available in the Gacha room and there’s five colours and three parts(skirt, top, and jacket) to play for. I’ve gone all black but the colours are all perfect for mixing and matching. It’s exclusive for the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

Also at The Chapter Four is the Helotry Collar from Venge. It’s in the Under 100L room, so you know it’s a steal! It’s HUD driven with seven colours and two metals to select from.

I’ve added the ‘Little Black Bird’ tattoo from Aitui. It’s been around awhile, I used to wear it as a system layer, but it’s updated for Omega, TMP and the SLink mesh bodies.

I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose I’m using is from the ‘New Bond Girl’ set of poses from TUTY’s. It was at the July round of eBento, so it should be in the main store soon.

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!!
