Hi I’m Here To Do Your Hair

Remarkable Oblivion has released some gear that’s perfect for those of you still seeking to traverse the grid in a more dystopian setting. Personally, in a dystopia I feel that being a stylist would be a really valued role – after all – who wants to be UGLY under their gear? NO ONE, that’s who! Continue reading

High Plains Fairy Drifter

I’ve been playing in ARCADE items today and the VCO Fairy Mesh Heads have caught my fancy. I don’t wear mesh heads regularly but this is pretty cute, and there is a nice selection of them if something you enjoy. I really love that you can choose your eyes, and hairbase via hud, makes it nice to switch up your look or keep it close to your avatar’s look for hair matching etc.  Continue reading

How Do You Arcade ?

Like Athena bursting from Zeus’ head, I leaped awake today realizing that THE ARCADE is almost here! Do you have a system? Do you make plans? How do you ARCADE?

I always start with the Shopping Guide, it really shows me who my must haves are each round and gives me ideas for little gift giving things too, like the post apocalyptic stuff for Codie. And maybe something for some of you – who knows? Continue reading

Important Information About Breakfast

“I think baking cookies is equal to Queen Victoria running an empire. There’s no difference in how seriously you take the job, how serious you approach your whole life.”
~ Martha Stewart

Cookies are a valid breakfast. I decided this morning that only cookies would do, and at the same time I realized there are “breakfast cookies” and “diet cookies” and this really means that cookies are now officially a good for you food, right? I mean, these people who market these products wouldn’t lie to us, correct? For that reason I’m pursuing a cookie filled breakfast. If loving cookies is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

Mirrors of Beauty

I ran the gauntlet yesterday, getting my stamp card completed for ENCHANTMENT. I may actually end up going back and picking up another item and running it again, as there was more I really loved at the event and hey, lovely free gifts are good. But for this morning, I’m having trouble getting moving even with my little dog Spike reminding me we need to get going.

He’s a pushy little bastard to be sure.  Continue reading

‘Twas Beauty Killed the Beast

This month at ENCHANTMENT it’s all about Beauty and the Beast.  I’m wearing a side swept braid style from DUE that’s really an adorable look, it reminds me of the 10949433 sweet braid styles on Pinterest I can’t actually do in RL to my hair.

Enchantment is the Stamp Card event so remember, just one purchase gives you a stamp card, which you can then hop about to the participating merchants, get a stamp by touching the Stamp Card Vendor and once you have THEM ALL you can visit the gift center and pick up a free item from one of the vendors this month. If you buy two items, you get two stamp cards and can get TWO free gifts, and so on. I love a stamp card event, they’re fun and I always end up buying stuff I didn’t mean to as it gets me into stores I haven’t been to before. Continue reading

New Mouth Because Why Not

“The mouth obeys poorly when the heart murmurs.”
~ Voltaire

There have been a few mesh mouths out, and I LIKED the way they looked but any time someone tried one on and said they liked it they also mentioned what editing they’d have to do in PS to “make it look right”.  I don’t mind putting on a filter to give a different look to a pic other than SL lighting but I won’t blur or whatever else to make products “look right”. If you can’t wear it around in SL without it looking nuts, I don’t think it’s a good value.  I don’t have PS so that’s also an issue but hey I COULD get it. I wouldn’t make products look ok with it though, I just have huge issues with that. Continue reading
