Bandana Day

Hair Fair 2012 is coming to a close today, which means it’s also bandana day – time to take off our virtual wigs to remove our hair and show we care.*

Bandana Day!

If you want to purchase a bandana and participate, they can be found on any of the four Hair Fair sims (Garden, Sand, Flower, Water) in the Wigs for Kids booth. The bandanas available were created by incredibly talented designers and bloggers, and each are only 50L (and transferable!).

Peaceful bandana day

I knew I wanted to combine the beautiful scarf bandana from Lelutka with this great Summery dress from Maitreya. The dress has been sitting in my inventory for a while just waiting for a chance to show up in a picture.
*A paraphrasing of the Hair Fair slogan for Bandana Day – I didn’t come up with it on my own, I’m not that clever.

Feel your way

Valentine’s day is one of my favorite holidays – what’s there not to like about a day dedicated to expressing how much you love the people in your life?

Whether you’re waiting…




Or certain…


Regardless of your relationship status, I hope today – and always – you have love in your life.


A Little Lift

Sometimes… it’s nice to let someone else do the lifting and just hang on.  Like, when you need a nap.

A little lift...

Unfortunately, I’m not sure if these skins/hunt gifts are still available, but they were around as of the middle of last week. I’m still posting this because I really like how the picture came out, and I’m sure that the Elven tones of these skins will include a shade similar to this one (there’s usually a very light shade available). So, check out the amazing shading work (especially their bodies and the eye makeup!!!), pick up one of the pre-releases that is in store, and start waiting impatiently (like the rest of us) for the full release.

Apricot Houses

Playing catch-up on the 52 weeks of color challenge (I’m sure you’ve all heard that before)…

The top is from Indie Rose – a wonderful store with an awesome creator! Like I mentioned in my Melon post, “salmon” has served me well during this color challenge! I was totally on board with looking at this top and seeing it as a salmon color, but I can see how it like apricot, and was pretty much right on when I compared the RGB values. Funny how what we actually see, and what definitions say we should see, are often different things.


The house (that you can only see a tiny bit of here) is from *Funky Junk*. You’ll see it again in my next post as well, and I just love it. It reminds me of home. Where I grew up, you had a great view of the mountains, you were 20 minutes from the beach – and could drive to any weather you wanted. No, I didn’t grow up in a bubble, but it felt like it sometimes. Now that I’m not there, things like this house make me a bit nostalgic – I guess everything is better in hindsight.

I’d rather be at the beach.

Beachy and sandy and ...

There is a reason that “work” is a four-letter word, and that’s all I’m going to say about it.

Sometimes, even with the prettiest of petals swirling around you, introspection takes over entirely. That’s natural.

It's Complicated

So is (eventually) being distracted by the beauty at hand, and getting on with it.

Really complicated

Part of Some World

On the Rocks

It’s one thing to watch a world around you, but there is nothing quite like getting in there, interacting with it to really understand. You just can’t do that with fins.

Coming Ashore

That first deep breath is always special.

Take a Walk

And you might just be a little reluctant to go back to the way it was before.

Bananas and Flowers

When I first saw the preview of this dress on Flickr, I think I actually said “Huzzah! It must be mine!”**

Sunne Banana

I don’t know what I like best about it – probably the way the embroidery continues down the leg. SO pretty. Now, this shade is one of the ones included in the 50 of a kind event, but there are tons of others in store now. (I should know, I picked up a fatpack and will probably bombard my Flickr with pictures of the other colors later.)

**This isn’t something I came up with, it’s actually from Dork Tower, a truly awesome web comic.

Happy Friday!
