Maybe Sometimes I Just Need A Change

Sometimes, I find it challenging to look unique in a place filled with avatars in similar apparel, hairstyles, and accessories.  We work so hard to find our own unique style, and Alice Project has done a fantastic job of making that task easier. With her CYO (Create Your Own) Hairstyles you are given the option to truly customize your haircolor in nearly an endless supply of options. This HUD based customization makes it easy to create the exact look you’ve been pining over.

I had a lot of fun playing around with the HUD today.  After much deliberation and hue changing I decided to go with a black and pink ensemble.  The HUD takes some getting used to, but once you adjust to all of the different & exciting settings, you can find yourself really getting addicted to trying all the different colors & streaks out.  The combinations SERIOUSLY feel like they are never ending!

Sookie Triellis made an outstanding youtube video tutorial that can help you learn more about the create your own hairstyles, as well as  the difference between the Infinity HUDs & the Create Your Own HUDs.  The nearly 20 minute long tutorial is in depth, and highly informative.

This hair is dazzling and magnetic. The styles & hues make it so easy to be unique and charismatic.  Never have I had so much fun playing with hair in Second Life.  So many fun combinations and ideas can come to life with the Create Your Own HUDs from Alice Project. I felt as if I were playing a grown up version of dress up! It’s the perfect Second Life accessory for when you truly want to feel unique & beautiful.  You are certain to stand out & capture the attention of many with your dazzling new combinations of hairstyles & hues!

I am looking forward to all of the new CYO hairstyles from Alice Project & I hope you are too.  Make sure to stay in tune to the Alice Project website for information new releases and more.  They’ve posted a specific blog entry detailing the Highlights Project (which I feel very honored to be a part of) and you can find the hairstyles at either the showcase location or the mainstore.

I Do What I Want. When I Want.

TRUTH has released some exciting new hair, and an exciting new way to wear it as well!  He is starting a new HUD based system, similar to how many other hair designers are going about their hair designing ways this year! The HUDs are fantastic, and really make it easy to decide what hair colors you want to wear.  Along with the HUD a great variety of gorgeous hues to choose from.  The HUD versions will include Black & Whites, Blondes, Browns, Colours, Gingers, Light Browns, Reds, and a Variety HUD. This new system really makes it easy to change your look up in a flash!  This specific hairstyle will be featured at The Seasons Story which will be opening tomorrow. It’s a great seasonal option for autumn, and the hat comes in a variety of great colors.

Glam Affair has released a beautiful skin called Shanna at this month’s Collabor88. The skin has some really fun makeup options, so stop by the event and see what all the fuss is about. It has certainly been a popular choice by many! The skin really changes my entire shape, which at first I felt uncertain about.  The more I wore the skin though, the more in love I fell! I feel gorgeous! My sexy oversized jacket from ISON is also a great Collabor88 this month!

But If I Fall For you, I’ll Never Recover

I’m back! It’s been a wild whirlwind of a week, and I haven’t been in SL due to a vacation to Nashville, Tennessee.  The trip was a success including the celebration of my mom’s 50th birthday, as well as….

My engagement!

I’d say the trip was successful. Mr. Arkansas Sorbet asked me to marry him! I thought it was fitting to tell everyone from Second Life, because this is where we first met.  If it weren’t for Second Life, I would have never had the pleasure of knowing him…or all the other wonderful people I know here.  It was a wonderful, family filled weekend.

While I was gone, so many great things were taking place in Second Life including the start of September’s round of Collabor88.  One of my all time favorite stores, League, is taking place in this month’s round.  Nena Janus is offering up a beautiful sweater dress, as well as a stellar pair of boots.  Both come in a variety of great autumn hues.  Also, this gorgeous skin from Belleza is also a great find at Collabor88 this month.  It’s a beautiful skin, with lots of makeup options.

Both my hair and pretty necklace are both FaMESHed items at September’s round.  This month of FaMESHed has also been a successful round with a lot of great items up for grabs.

I also wanted to make mention of my pose, because I am really excited for the creator behind it! The adorable Nati Williams has started her poses back up from Imeka, and they are so fantastic.  I’m so excited to see someone so darling making cute things once again!

Happy shopping & event hopping!

I Hate This Picture…But Love This Outfit

So I really hate this picture. I dunno what it is about it, but I just don’t like it.  I’ve honestly felt rather “meh” about my last few shots.  I’m going to be taking a few days away from my computer starting in a day or two, so maybe a nice RL recharge will be just the key to making me feel inspired again.  I’ve also been trying to teach myself a little bit of mesh creation (my poor plurk friends have had to hear me talk allll about it!), so my blog time has been a little bit more limited.  No worries though, I still plan to blog on! I’ve just become interested in learning some new skills & something new as well!

As much as I dislike this picture… I’m really quite happy with the outfit.  So many cute new items, all which can be found at FaMESHed this round.  So get shopping!
