Classy

So yesterday, I kind of sneakily in the midst of a paragraph asked how many people actually read what I wrote! Clearly, it was for purely selfish and curious reasons! Who doesn’t want to know if they have readers or not? ;)  I did get a few responses, and to those few, I thank you for taking the time to read my silly and often times pointless ramblings.  It means quite a bit to me that there are those out there who enjoy (or at least pretend to enjoy!!) what I have on my mind!

coldLogic has a new subscriber gift for a limited time.  They always release really beautiful items for their dedicated subscribers, so I really encourage you to take the time to become one!  This dress oozes with class! I also love the beautiful plum color and the one shouldered strap.

Elikatira now has her items out at Hair Fair 2012 and she’s featuring four brand new mesh styles.  I went broke! I bought all four! I couldn’t narrow my choices down and all four looked beautiful.  I wasn’t disappointed in the slightest.  All four are very unique from one another and fit flawlessly.  Also, Elikatira’s red tones are some of my favorite on the grid, specifically “Red 05″. I just love it.  It always looks so beautiful with my skin tones & freckles.

If you are also looking for a great accessory for all sorts of apparel, I encourage you to check out these earrings from Aura.  They are currently up for sale at faMESHed this month.  The chevron inspired prints and the vibrant colors make them a great choice.  Miss Rozenblum always does a beautiful job on her earrings!

If you are looking for a few great new static pose sets, !Bang has a few sets out for Collabor88 this month. I especially love the “back up” set.  Very sexy and incredibly useful poses!

I’ll leave it at that today! I should probably go and try and be a human or something and get stuff done in the real world! Take care everyone! <3

Asphalt

As you can see I am really beginning to struggle with names for my blog posts! Asphalt was a far stretch for this one, but I guess I am standing on it eh? LOL!  I envy all of you creative beings out there who come up with such beautiful and eloquent blog post titles!

So, as i’ve mentioned before and as I’m sure you all know Hair Fair 2012 is in full gear right now.  This new release for the event from Wasabi Pills has instantly become my current favorite hair.  I am just obsessed with this mesh creation from MissAllSunday Lemon.  The headband comes with a HUD that allows you to change the color of the ribbon in two separate spots, giving you a chance to mix and match colors for various fashion ensembles.

I’m having so much fun in these leggings from Maitreya.  Having the shoes be a connected piece of the pants is unique, edgy, and feels very “high fashion”.  As you all know, I am not “high fashion” in the slightest, so it does feel good to play dress up!  You can find these for 375 a pair, or in great fat pack sets.  Totally worth every penny.  They are mesh, high quality (when is Maitreya not high quality?) & I like them quite a bit!  I swear that store is the reason I am consistently broke!  OH and PS…I’m trying something a little sneaky and silly right now that another fellow blogger mentioned to me…if you read my blog and actually read what I write will you comment and let me know?  I’m actually curious if my ramblings are read, or if I could get away with just posting credits & photos sometimes!  Sneaky Harlow is being…well…not so sneaky…but let me know if you actually read all my pointless ramblings! I’m quite curious if anyone pays close enough attention to catch this! ;)

I paired my fun new leggings with a very sexy new top from Cracked Mirror.  I absolutely love everything about this mesh sequined cropped top.  This is an exclusive item that you can receive through a subscription at mysecondbox.com, which is pure awesome might I add! I strongly recommend checking out the website for more information!  If you’d also like more information on releases from Cracked Mirror you can check out their website!

My sexy jewelry set is from KOSH.  As many of you may or may not know, Lynaja Bade is the owner of both KOSH & Concrete Flowers.  She will be having a temporary closing sale for all of her items at Concrete Flowers.  She will be re-opening Concrete Flowers in the near future when her real life schedule is less busy, but she’s graciously having a closing sale for you to run and grab all kinds of great items!  The sale started on the 13th of July and will run until the 31st! So check it out!

Lastly, I wanted to mention my awesome pose!  Catherine Fairport has swiftly become one of my favorite pose makers in Second Life.  Recently she’s made so many great new poses and props for her store Bent! that I really encourage you all to run and check out her store.  She has lots of items up for grabs, and she sets everything at such reasonable, affordable prices.  Keep up the amazing work Miss Fairport! <3

I hope you all have a great day! <3

Silent Wings

Clearly I haven’t felt like wearing a shirt lately.  My last two posts have been sans shirt, and honestly it wasn’t completely intentional.  I’ve just been mindlessly snapping photographs this week and two similar photos seemed to land right after one another! Oops!  I think it’s because the last two photos I’ve done have featured some beautiful new hairstyles that really don’t need anything else to go with them!  They shine without a bunch of clothing or accessories added.

I’m sure by now you’ve had a chance to check out Hair Fair 2012, but if you have not I really encourage you to scamper over to the giant hair filled fair!  Lots of great items to pick up including this beautiful mesh hair from Exile.  The hair comes with these great feathers that you can choose to wear with or without the hairstyle.  Exile is featuring a handful of beautiful new styles for this years fair, and after wandering around and checking out everything that the fair has to offer, I must say that Exile has some of my favorites this year.  Many of them come with great little accessories like feathers or headbands.  Great work Exile!

Check out the eyes I am wearing.  These are from Rozena, and I am just blown away by how beautiful and realistic they are.  The best part is, you can find these eyes for only 10L at the Seraphim Turns One Birthday Event.  An awesome steal, and certainly a new pair that have become a quick favorite!

Hey everyone! Happy weekend!  I have a couple of great events to tell you about today that I’m certain you’ve already heard about!

Hair Fair 2012 has officially opened it’s doors to the public!  You can find specific SLURLS & locations on the exceptionally well done Hair Fair Website.  This is the 7th annual Hair Fair & will run from today, July 14th 2012 through July 29th 2012.  The event helps to raise funds for the nonprofit organization Wigs for Kids.  It’s an absolutely fabulous organization that I really encourage you to read more about… and then go spend lots and lots of money in support of it at Hair Fair!

Over the next many days I’ll be sharing with you a handful of beautiful hairstyles featured at this year’s Hair Fair.  The fashionable hat/hair combo seen above comes from the store Magpie.  Magpie will be featuring a couple of great styles for you to pick up.  I believe this is the very first time I’ve featured Magpie on my blog, and judging by this fun hair & hat, I will certainly be finding more to wear in the future!

Another event that is soon to open it’s doors tomorrow is the Seraphim Turns One Birthday Event.  This event is put on by SeraphimSL as well as FashionCentric.  I’m really excited about this event because it’s a hunt that will give you ample opportunity to find great items for only 10L, that typically would be for sale at a price of 250L or more!  It will feature over 50 designers, and it’s supporting the celebration of what I think is personally one of the very best Second Life resources on the web. They are officially one year old!  The staff of SeraphimSL have done an absolutely phenomenal job over the past year of sharing helpful information on sales, events, and more, while keeping an incredibly positive and encouraging attitude every single day.  I am a huge fan of their website and incredibly grateful to have them around as an uplifting resource.

An item that you will find at the hunt is this beautiful ebony toned skin from Izzie’s called Eliza.  I very rarely change my skin tone on my blog, and I must say I found a lot of enjoyment switching things up temporarily!  This skin is stunning.  The details and rich texturing are filled with immense quality, and even if you don’t typically wear darker skin tones, it’s a skin worth picking up at the hunt for when you are feeling like a change! Best of all? It’s only 10 lindens! What a steal!

Lastly, I want to mention my beautiful earrings from Atomic.  They can be found at Collabor88.  My simplistic and very lovely pose is from a great basic pose back that you can snatch up at Glitterati!

With that, I bid you farewell!  I hope you all are having a stellar weekend. <3

Beach Belle

It’s summer time and this belle is ready for the beach!  I’ve packed up my adorable and very girly new beach set from What Next and I’ve headed over to my favorite rezzable beach sim Crossing Currents!  This mesh parasol and beach towel set comes in a handful of cute prints, and had a land impact of 2 prims.  You will need an additional 6 prims or so in case you want to rezz the awesome props…which you will want to! They are cute!  Everything from ice cream cones, and radios, to magazines & books await you.  My favorite print of the set is “beach belle” and it’s ultra girly!

Some of my other items can be found at Collabor88 & FaMESHed this month.  My bikini comes from *BOOM* and it is ridiculously sexy!  Each set comes with some solid and striped neutral tones.  As much as I love mesh, I think non mesh bikinis are still my preference for my swimwear, and this bikini is non mesh!

If you are interested as to where I make my collage photos check out Pic Monkey.  I typically do all of my editing in Photoshop, but when it comes to making a collage photo, this website is the way to go.  It has so many options, and you can put a great collage together in mere minutes.  I especially love to use it for home decor photographs, or when I have a lot of accessories or props to show off.

For more information on the rest of my items and where you can find them check out the credits! Happy Friday everyone! I hope your weekend is wonderful!
