Sunday is for Self Care

My friend Gogo over at Juicybomb told me about a new residential community called Portofino that is to die for with so many great things to see and do that I had to check it out. So I drove down to the train station to ride over in style to check out this new to me place.

I specifically went for lunch, hoping to find a nice café and wasn’t disappointed. Portofino is a roleplay sim but it’s great for us tourists also, and I’ll be going back a lot I can tell. It’s just lovely and welcoming.

After lunch I found the cutest nail shop that I couldn’t resist stopping in for a quick manicure. I also took this time to shop for skincare products from Perfect Image. For my hair care products, I love ordering them online.

It’s really lovely to have an entire city here to come to and do all the things Gidgey loves – did I mention there is both bowling and roller skating? Plus lots of dining options and even a big box retailer we will refer to as Bullseye ! You already know I went and smelled some candles.

After my exploration and adventures I decided I deserved a little treat so I grabbed a slide of really good cake at the local bakery.

Portofino? Can’t go wrong there! I love it!

Saturday Sloth

I appreciate the breakfast in bed but why does my maid only bring me the same thing every day. Oh well, I am too lazy to complain and too hungry not to eat it.

I feel like I’m forgetting something today. It’s the first day of hurricane season, I know that. It’s the first day of PRIDE – yay I need to to shopping. But what am I forgetting?

I need more caffeine. Surely I’ll think of it.

Oh my god….she though while brushing her gorgeous locks – it’s HAIR FAIR helllll yes!!

Hair Fair!! That GLORIOUS event that signals that summer is in full swing. You can hop over HERE and do your preliminary looksee to decide what you’ll get in your first round of shopping. Hair Fair requires more than one round, obviously.

Imma hit the shower and get ready.

I didn’t post my shower pic because I’m nekkid and you can see some bootie and I don’t wanna be shocking. You can see it over on FLICKR if you wanna. I’m grabbing second breakfast at home (more economical) and then I’m hitting the road. Time to get my shopping on!!

Adventures Continue

I love a new vehicle, I think I love vehicles almost as much as I love food. This winner from 777 is a gift at Shop n Hop and you can pick it up here . Like everything they make it’s great quality, and Aliana and I had a great time cruising around the beach before our early morning picnic.

777 added a cute little addition, this kitty has stowed away in our picnic basket. I hope he didn’t eat our donuts. That was our only sustenance for the morning!

A fun addition for our beachy morning.

We’re tired so decided on a simple dinner at home.

We’re matchy matchy today in our outfits from Addams, also from Shop n Hop event. This little set is awesome, as it has a ton of textures in it – they’re giving you a fatpack for free with a great summer outfit. That’s so sweet of them.

Aliana grabbed this adorable free hair at Hair Fair which is still going on until July 2! Don’t miss out on the great free hairs and there are so many beautiful things to buy and it’s a great opportunity to support a wonderful cause.

500 Festival Weekend

yeah I know that road texture is a mess. it would not clean up. whatever.

If you’ve been around a while you’ll know that one of the dearest things in my heart is the 500 Festival Weekend which is of course the days leading up to and including the INDY-FUCKING-FIVE-HUNDRED. The greatest spectacle in Motor Racing.

The Indy 500 is special to me for so many reasons. I’m FROM Indianapolis. It was something I’d do with my dad, he introduced me to the race, the joy of getting to watch qualifications from the suites (free food and booze yo) and the excitement of hearing the unique sound that only IndyCars make.

My dad was introduced to the Race as a young man, and was there the year Parnelli Jones won in the so called WHOOSH mobile – a car that made a woosh rather than a specific IndyCar scream when it went by. It looked a lot like #18 behind me there.

I might go buy #18.

I remember going to the race several times with my dad – and then later I went with my friends and engaged in the Bacchanalia that I had not been aware of when I was with a parent. You might not have been before, but let me tell you, the Indy 500 is a nonstop fucking PARTY from Thursday to Monday.

God help you if you have to work Tuesday. (Just take it off. We all took it off).

Two days before my dad died, he said his last words.

His last words ?

“Parnelli Jones.”

WOOOOOOSH.

I love the Indy-Fucking-Five-Hundred. Let’s have a great weekend.

May 1st 2020

Oh hi again! I told you I got both the short and the long version of the cute jumpsuit from Etiquette, didn’t I? Well here’s the long one. I chose the green one because I figured, for a long one, a lighter colour would be prettier. Then came the hard part, accessorising. And for that I went into digging mode in the organised chaos that is my inventory. I apologise in advance if some of the things I wear are old and possibly discontinued.

I’ve been buying hair from Magika since 2007 I think, back then it was already way better than what most other (now long gone) hair makers would do. I’m always amazed at how, with every new release, Sabina Gully keeps improving and renewing her style. This cute one is called Prudence and comes with a cat and a devil horn headband, but I wanted something more elegant for this picture so I dug up this starry headband.

Race to Hair Fair Before It Closes September 1st!

When choosing a skin we look for something reflecting our personality, but when we select hair we want something that reflects our mood. I am confident that many SL fashionistas have as many hairstyles in their Second closet as they have clothes. For the best hairstyles I would like to suggest stylist from https://www.markjameshairstudio.com.au/ as they are experts .That is why Hair Fair is one of the most successful fundraising events in Second Life. 

The fourteenth annual Hair Fair 2019 runs from August 17th through September 1st and will be raising funds for “Wigs for Kids” Wigs for Kids is a relatively small organization with a very focused mission–to provide wigs for children who have lost hair due to cancer chemotherapy, alopecia, or other medical reasons. These are custom-fitted wigs made so kids can play and Iive their lives without fear of bullying and being ostracized because of illness. Hair Fair makes a significant difference in the lives of many children. 

One of the favorite elements of Hair Fair is Bandana Day when everyone is encouraged to take off their hair and wear a bandana to express their solidarity with those who lost their hair for medical reasons. Anyone and everyone was encouraged before Hair Fair to download a Bandana Day Kit and make their own bandanas. Thanks to the easy kit and instructions, even the noobiest noob could contribute their own designs to help raise money for kids. This makes Hair Fair unique in allowing anyone to participate as a creator and give with their hands, not just their wallets. 

Of course, in the end, for many it is about the hair and that there is in abundance with three sims full of stores and three cam shopping sims adjacent. You are encouraged to join the Hair Fair Demo group so you can get all the demos and try them on at home or host a demo party for you and your friends. To join the demo group, just copy-paste below into open chat in Second Life to join the FREE GROUP. Never pay to join any groups claiming to be part of Hair Fair!

To make shopping even easier, Hair Fair SL has a guide posted on their blog at https://hairfair.wordpress.com/

So run, don’t walk, to Hair Fair and find hair for your every mood and smile knowing that every purchase you make contributes to making a child’s life easier and fuller. 

Bandana Day kits now available – Help us help Wigs for Kids

Bandana Kit Box Poster.png

All finished bandanas must be in by July 31st 2019 – Available on Marketplace

Hair Fair is a little over a month away, starting on August 17th 2019. Each year we ask the community of Second Life to help us further by creating Bandanas that we sell during the event and round out the event with the last day being the official Bandana Day.

Each year we receive bandanas either textured variants of the bandanas we provide in our kit or unique mesh created by those that want to help support this cause. We invite anyone interested to grab the kit available and help add to the money raised through this annual event, this is the 12th Year of Bandanas and we are so moved by everyone’s eagerness to help. You do not have to own a store or be a creator to help, look at the information to see how you can participate, thank you.

Not Your Grandma’s Candystriper

"Summertime is always the best of what might be."
When I see pink and white stripes, I always think of the candystriper volunteers at the local hospital. This is, of course, not anything like a candystriper would wear, not if there was any hope of staying on the job. The blouse and heels were released at the June Uber event. 
"Summertime is always the best of what might be."
The blouse is from Baiastice and comes with the bikini bra and panties and belt that can all be changed by the HUD. 
"Summertime is always the best of what might be."
I chose “One Way or Another” hair from Exile, using the built-in Lelutka hairbase. One of the fun things to do with Exile hair is to look up the song the hair is named for just to see how well it fits. 
"Summertime is always the best of what might be."
These fabulous sandals from Baiastice can be customized with the HUD. The braided vamp could be sheer or opaque and all sorts of colors or patterns. The straps and heels can also be customized.
