Jing from Fiore

I recently raved about the new mesh heads and appliers from Fiore, released at the end of the year. To my delight, the brand released another, completely different applier, Jing, available in 3 tones to work with all five Fiore head shapes. It’s no secret I love Asian skins, mesh heads, and now, appliers. It’s remarkable to me how different… Read more →

A Little Dab’ll Do Ya

I am one of those freaks of nature who don’t really like red. It’s a color I almost never wear – in either life. The only time of year I will even consider it is around the holidays. And even then, usually only on my nails or a scarf or clutch. I don’t even like red roses 😮 But, I… Read more →

Too Much is Never Enough

Be honest. How many times do you wear your hairs in Second Life on average? For me, I wear my favorites over and over and over, as evidenced by the last year of blogging. But between hairs and shoes in Second life, too much is never enough. I am a certified “shoe whore” IRL and a “hair whore” in Second… Read more →

The Great Quarterly Inventory Purge

It’s that time again. Every quarter (three months), I go through my inventory for the Great Quarterly Inventory Purge and pick out my personal favorite hairs of the previous quarter. I meticulously go through and delete items in my inventory that I can’t see reusing. Why? Because I like to keep my inventory tidy and compact; very unlike the first… Read more →

MIX: I don’t need a reason…

…but I am glad there is one. I don’t need a reason to visit my favorite brands’ main stores tbh. It’s still weird to me that it’s now so novel to actually TP around and enjoy the spaces that my favorite artists have created. I like MIX because it’s very specifically not a destination event. Instead, it’s designed to get… Read more →

Revisiting some favorites

Despite more event openings, I really began this look with revisiting some of my favorites, both in my inventory and by visiting the main stores of several designers. Novel, I know! After I came back to SL last winter, “Blair” (The Skinnery) was the first skin I fell in love with after Glam Affair. I can’t get enough of the… Read more →

Almost too sweet: Dresses that don’t bore me

I knew I would eventually end up doing this post. Despite my boredom around some shorter, “girly” dresses in Second Life, these dresses are all exceptions for me. Why? Extraordinary construction and/or textures you can almost feel. The top of the Dreamy Dress from Pixicat at Collabor88 is textured in a way that I can almost feel the fabric if… Read more →

Almost Imperceptible

Where I live, once the calendar hit about August 6, an almost imperceptible change happened. Lights in my house are now being flipped on around 7:00 rather than 8:00. The air conditioning isn’t running much and the evening air has the slightest hint of a chill. The seasons are signaling a change. It’s my favorite time of year, but so… Read more →

Hair Fair’s Last Licks

I believe today is the last day for Hair Fair 2015. I still have about 20 hairs in my inventory to wear O.o, and I will get there – but it clearly won’t be in time for the Fair to still be open. I am quite sure most people have been and shopped exhaustively, but just in case you missed… Read more →

A Collection

I have so much new stuff in my inventory. What you see here is a collection of a few looks I put together based on all this “stuff” – all of which I really love, btw. Firstly I’ll mention that The Skinnery has just moved and there’s a new group gift in the store, plus all the basic AV skins… Read more →
