Hairology


Hello Readers,

As promised I will bring you events I feel are of interest and are of benefit to you.  So in my travels through Second Life this week, I came upon and event that will run from November 10th to November 30th.  Now don't you all scream at once, but its a hair sale: Hairology

Hairology has been around for quite some time as you may know.  Its an event that runs monthly featuring some of the very best creators on the grid.  I highly recommend that you get by and check it out.  Not only for the sales but this month especially.  

Now I did have a little problem getting into this amazing event.  That is because its vastly popular.  The sheer talent of the designers featured at Hairology is enough to make you want to run there before you walk.  Once in I was amazed to find out that this is an anniversary event.  So what does that mean to us as consumers.  Well I will tell you.  Gifts!   Not only will you find fantastic designs from some premium designers,  they have also set out a gift to mark the 10th anniversary of Hairology! Now let me get  you a Uber to the event,  because I know your ready to go. 

Waterton Way (62/175/2797)

 I am posting some of the free gifts.  These are just a sample of what is set out for us to pick up and enjoy. 


This cute little bob is from Tukinowaguma.  Tuck for short.  Its a great hair that goes from casual to chic in moments.  The gift comes in several colors for your ease of use.  It can be pared with just about any look you are trying to achieve. 


Next up I have somewhat of a boho inspired hair.  I just love boho and all the different looks.  This hair is from no.match.  It comes in three different base colors with a hair base applier for Catwa,  Omega,  Lelutka,  and TMP.  That's pretty handy to have. 


[RunAway Hair] set out a great gift for us.  Now I used it for a formal look,  but you can again use it for which ever look your going for.  Its a super beautiful hair that comes in so many different color combinations.  The colors in the hud are beautiful two-toned hairs.

I hope you enjoy the event readers.  I know I did.  Until next time.

Sincerely,
Shaza

The Gacha Garden

By Shaza Denver

Hello Readers,

As promised I am going to send you out on a journey.  Today's journey is an event that has been around for some time: the Gacha Garden.  Who doesn't love gacha!!??

My daughter was kind enough to drop me the LM.  I think she had a motive though. She might be as addicted to gacha as I am.   I mean come on.  Its like finding the prize at the bottom of the cereal box.  You see this fantastic prize.......the rare,  so you just have to keep going till you have it.  This event runs from Nov. 1st  through Nov. 30th. so hurry on over.   Some of the creators have been kind enough to set out gifts for us. How lovely is that? Win....win I say!  I will show you a few of the gifts that I gathered up.


At first it was a bit hard to get in as this is a much anticipated event.   Its pretty easy to teleport in now. 

You can read more on how to play at  http://thegachaguardians.com/how-to-play/

Gimme Gacha Productions (127, 238, 25)

This pretty hair wreath from .::Nanika::.  in yellow just screams fall.  I coupled the hair wreath with the free gift they have set out for you.  The earrings are so delicate and such a lovely color.  Let me give you the LM  to the main store for you to check out as well.  The gacha at the event has a few different types of hair wreaths.  The rare will come with a hud that will make available 5 different colors of the wreath.  At 50L a pull thats some deal!  Good luck and enjoy.

I am going to give you one more sneak look at an item at the Gacha Garden.   This one will be something for your home.  Now if you have never visited Goose,  you really must.  A fantastic creator,  that makes high quality designs for our home and garden.  They are at the gacha garden this round with a outdoor living set that is so comfy looking you just want to melt into it.  At 75L a pull its a real deal. The rare is going to be the bench in PG or adult versions.  They have a great gift set out for you as well.  Get on over and grab it up and try your luck at the gacha.  You won't be disappointed.  Let me give you the LM to the main store.  Go give them a look see.  I think  you will like what you find there.

Fashion Looks for March


By Mylie Foxclaw

In today’s post, I’m going to show you 3 different looks.  One is a casual day wear with a trendy twist, a classic short dress and finally, a casual chic dress.  You will find a cool mix of items from different price range.


First, I have the Samatha dress from Evani.  Classy yet sexy, this dress will definitely turn heads as you pass by.  I kept the styling as simple as possible, using my diathus high heels and my Fenella hair which is a very simple hairstyle that blends well with the look. 

Look 1:
Dress: Samatha by Evani - http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Thundering Mountain/176/107/26
Dianthus shoes by Glamistry - http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Glamistry/153/60/602


Next, I have this Navy dress from Stories & Co.  This one is a group gift (L$100 to join & tons of monthly gifts).  Use it for a simple day look, for work, or even clubbing or a dinner date.  Don’t you love such outfits which can be used for various occasions?

Look 2:  Hair & shoes same as in Look 1. 


Next, we have this cool look.  The hair is a VIP gift from Truth.  You may already be familiar with the ripped jeans from Blueberry if you have been following my previous blog posts.  Here I want to focus on the shoes and the Jacket.  They are both from Ricielli.  The best part is that they are part of the recent Valentine hunt at Ricielli.  Each hunt item costs L$15 and you can get so many items ranging from shoes to clothing!  Make sure not to miss out on this hunt which will go on till the 10th of March.  I have included the hunt gift list from Ricielli.

I went over to visit the region to check on what would be for sale and what would be going on .
The build is futuristic and fun to walk . There are 50 fashion designers to shop and the recipient of the event is “Feed a Smile” . I found some lovely spring outfits on display and finally gave in and bought a few outfits .




 Here I am on the Runway pretending I am in the show! I am wearing an exquisite creation 'Banu’ by Niles Karas of Flowerdreams.  


And my other choice which looked so fresh and light is Prism Dawn in pink (you have choices of color) by Jezzixa Cazalet.  Some of my favorite merchants are here . Two hunts will be going on during the weeks and hints are available on the website too. I will be going back for those! If you are interested in the numerous fashion shows take a look there at the website above.



It is all for a wonderful cause.” Feed a Smile is a project of the RL registered non-profit organization - Live and Learn in Kenya Int'l.

LLK Int'l is in its 11th year - and has sent hundreds of children to school.” 1L feeds a child lunch in Kenya so it is really worth something.

February Fashions


By Mylie Foxclaw

Today I want to show you a cool outfit from the February round of Fameshed.  Next, I’ll show you some nice things that I found on MP and inworld for those on a tight budget.  I like digging for such outfits because it helps to discover new stores that you don’t really hear about.  Let’s get started.


I adore this casual long shirt with the jeans jacket over it from Zenith.  This costs L$350. It’s a trendy look and I’m wearing it as a dress right now.  I’m wearing the Fenella hair from Truth which comes with and without a hat option and used my ankle boots from Ingenue.  This outfit will be available only for this current round of Fameshed.  I assume that it will be at the Zenith mainstore after the round.


Let’s work out our pixels!  This sports outfit is from Wellmade and its only L$1 on the marketplace! It’s available in both black and white. I use the Maitreya body, so I used the hud but the appliers are available for various mesh bodies and for the standard shape too.  To look sporty, I decided on a ponytail called Careful from Magika and my Vernon sneakers.  Make sure to check out Wellmade, there’s some nice deals there!


Let’s keep it sporty-fun with these fun wedges from Hibicus and they are free on MP.  I am wearing them with these high-waisted shorts from Ibela which are also free and my frilly top is an old group gift from Tres Blah.  


Finally, I found this gown from Hibicus which is free and I’m absolutely in love with it because of the back and colours.  Pick an updo as you don’t want the hair to hide you back!  I’m using Juanuary from Truth which is an old group gift.  I think you should check that store out.  There’s nice stuff for great prices.

How Can a Hairdo Change Your Look?


By Mylie Foxclaw

Wearing a particular style of hair can really change your whole look from sexy to fun.  This is pretty cool, especially in Second Life where you don’t need to spend hours trying to fix your hair!

Today, I’m going to show you different hairs that can be used in order to style a simple T-shirt.  I’ve picked a T-shirt from Tres Blah, which is available as a past gacha item but you can easily find it on MP from people who trade gacha items.  You must note that Gacha items are no copy.  


The first hair I’m using is called Amorette from Truth Hair.  It’s a fun style with most of your hair down and two big braids to add some twist to the hairdo.  It’s the hair I love to use to rock casual looks.  It’s fun and playful.  


The next hair I’m using adds a sexy flair.  It’s called Forever by Exile.  It’s great if you are styling your T-shirt with a pair of jeans and some high heels.  It’s nice and gives you a more casual-chic look with just a little touch of glamour.  


Now I am wearing the daffodil hair from Magika.  This hair has a lot of volume but it shows more of your face.  The little hair clip adds a touch of cuteness.  This is great for those who like a more youthful look.


Another way I enjoy to style my T-shirt look is by using a hat.  I find that it is a really fun twist to an everyday look.  Here I’m wearing the Fenella hair from Truth.  The hair comes with and without the hat.  


Another cool way is to go for fun colours.  It’s a nice way to spike your look or maybe go just a little wild.  For instance, for the crimson hair from Little Bone.  I opted for those tones that match with my T-shirt.  


The Born to Die hair from Little Bone is another nice look that turns up the glamour to a little notch.  I love the way the curls frame the face and this time I opted for the black and brown combo.  The curls are sexy and elegant; a lovely way to make a casual look appear classy.


Finally, if you want to go with an adorable casual look, the Clove hair from Wasabi is perfect.  The hair frames the face nightly and the length is just perfect.  The little hair clips are a nice touch and there’s a hud that lets you change the colour of each clip. 

Indeed, hair can change your overall look from sexy to elegant and absolutely cute.  Sometimes a change in hair colour can give a brilliant twist to a simple outfit.
