Hair Fair 2014

The 9th Annual Hair Fair is upon us and for such a great cause as ‘Wigs for Kids’ it is definitely worth the lag, full sims and endless hours of shopping. Even more than that, by donating in any way, we are all working together to make a difference for children benefited by this great cause. Not only that, but in just the past three years alone, Hair Fair has raised more than $35,000! See for yourself and check out the thank you letters here.

Naturally, I went a little overboard in shopping (and spending!) but I am so glad I did. Here are a few of my finds, though I’ll be sure to post some more once the furor dies down a little bit!

As always, help us fellow shoppers enjoy Hair Fair by coming in as low lag as possible. That includes removing unnecessary scripts, HUDs and gadgets that hold no use when shopping. And if you still can’t beat the lag, don’t forget to join the Hair Fair Demo Group so that you can try out all of your favorites beforehand! For those of you that know exactly what you want, you can grab direct LMs to your favorite store here!

Julianna

Am I the only one, or does anyone find it incredibly annoying to receive random IMs from strangers checking you out or wanting sex? Talk about gross! Rather than being flattered, I am disturbed. Talk about a bad juju…

Anyway, today I was hanging out at Pangloss, a stunningly designed sim with a rather unique approach. I absolutely love all of the pinks and blues that create this whimsical nature scene and will undoubtedly be back again to explore some of the other more… interesting additions throughout the location.

I am wearing the new Julianna dress from Tee*fy, also for the January round of Collabor88. The playful and flirty design of this dress is exactly the kind of style I love and the mint and cream duotone color easily puts this in one of my top ten favorite pieces.

Now that I am learning how to create poses, I have a new appreciation and a more determined eye when picking out poses to use for blogging. At least until I can create some of my own. In the meantime, however, this new pose set by Eternal Dream for the current round of The Kollective is exactly what I was looking for. They are simple and sweet and come five poses to the set, so grab them before it’s too late!

Glam Affair – Zara (america) & Chained Link Necklace (mesh) (mintcreme) NEW RELEASE @ Collabor88

Romantic Rendezvous

I still can’t get over how much I love the new Ellie skin from Belleza, for the Arcade. Yes, I know I’ve said it in almost every post for the past week, but I can’t help it! The freckles are just too cute! Anyway, I wanted to do something soft and pretty to go with the look and feel of Ellie, so I am wearing this great new release from Gizza. It is a partial mesh bodysuit with a floral, ruffly peplum belt and an pretty floral headpiece. It comes in three colors, green (shown above,) peach and purple. To grab this great new release, check out the mesh collection at the Gizza mainstore here.

I’ve finally decided to open my sim up to visitors for the month of June, so feel free to stop by and hang out or snap some pictures. Join my Flickr group or post your link here to share them! ♥
