A few months ago I got the shock of my life when I was given the opportunity to participate in an article in Solitude Magazine about Second Life. Solitude Magazine is an Australian alternative fashion type magazine . I submitted two pictures.

When I started to do this blog post (2 hours ago, blame plurk.) Maxwell’s Sumthin Sumthin was on Pandora. The lyrics reminded me of way back in the beginning when Sal was flirting with me and I thought he was just some guy being nice and complimenting my work. I paid him no mind, he was just some guy on my plurk timeline.

Our first “date” we took pictures and we went exploring. It was pretty cool, but maybe in an alternatve universe it could have been something like this:

Growing up a little brown girl with unruly hair, you know early on that getting your hair under control is a labor of pain and burns. Many a Sunday I spent sitting in the kitchen in front of the stove while my mom wielded the pressing iron to get my frizzy curly ‘fro sleek and straight. Back then I watched alot of Charlie’s Angels and I wanted straight bouncy luxurious hair like Farrah Fawcett and Jacyln Smith. They just got out of bed with hair that looked amazing. But I had to endure hours of torture just to have it all put in pig tails fitting for a little girl.

As I got older and was allowed more “adult” styles, I wanted more. I wanted highlights. Oh great not only do I have hot iron heated in fire pulled through my hair, now I get to put on this tight cap with little holes and have my hair yanked through the holes with a small crochet hook. Highlights was something we did in the summer time. After you’ve endured all the torture to get get it dyed and straight, participating in summer activities without getting your hair wet became an art. You could hang out at the pool or on the beach but the hair must NEVER get wet. I’m telling you all this for a reason, just stay with me.

Sal and I had a little water ballon fight courtesy of Izzie’s Water Ballon Fight Poses. There are tons of poses and balloon props and water splashes, take my word on it. I decided to put on my new bikini from Blacklace, called Summer Splash. It comes in a wet top version and a dry top version,floral bottoms and as a bonus beach towel with animations (not shown). I also had  to wear Truth’s new Kara style w/ roots in the Almond color, which is a new Truth color for me to wear. I just love the highlights. It reminds me so much of the Charlie’s Angel hair I wanted as a child.

So back on track,  Sal and I… water balloon fight. It was all fun and games until Sal made the biggest mistake ever. He aimed for THE HAIR!!

As most people on my plurk timeline are familair, I do food p0rn every now and then. Ganache seems to be one of the things that trends quite often now on my favorite food blogs. I’m not a huge fan of icing so I’ve always just posted it to appease the inner fat girls/boys of the peeps on my timeline. Sakide released the Ganache dress set for the latest ZPB I just loved the cute mesh skirt that attaches. Each pack includes 2 color combos. I’m wearing the pink/black of the pink/black  and black/black set.

Hair Fair 2012 opened last weekend. You can see the slurls and map at the official Hair Fair Blog. Wasabi Pills my fav mesh hair maker has the cutest styles at Hair Fair this year. I decided to do my first post on Wasabi Pills Hair with Zoey. The leather bands and the beads are color changeable via a hud. Its just a very cute style all around.

To compliment the hair I went with two items from One Voice. Mon Cherie’s tank top and Tutti Frutti’s Charlotte Bermuda Shorts. I love both stores, Mon Cherie for their nicely done swimwear and lingerie, and Tutti Frutti for all her colorful textures on her items. I find styling her items a challenge in a good way.

Yeah I know everyone is blogging about hair fair. I’m taking a bit of a detour from hair fair blogging to catch up on pics I took last week. These pics were meant for to be blogged on Friday, but I got busy walking around hair fair. Anyway One Voice is still open and has lots of goodies including this cute updo from Exile called Break Away. Sakide also has the Letter from Paris outfit available in Rose and Black in 2 different design choices. I love the writing and postage stamp on the skirt, it was the deciding factor on which version to grab. Adorkable also has some cute poses out for One Voice called Handbag. There are 5 poses that work for left and right handbags.

Hair Fair 2012 opened today. You can see the slurls and map at the official Hair Fair Blog.  Discords Designs has released 5 new mesh styles for Hair Fair. I’ve always thought Discord does the best braids on the grid and her new mesh versions are even better. Today I am wearing the Devlyn style which is unisex and comes in 2 sizes. In this style the braids fall all the down to the lower back or butt. If you prefer a shorter style there is Delrey, also available at Hair Fair.

Fairy Tales ends tomorrow and I wanted to get this post in before it ended. I’ve always been a fan of the pose props of Tableau Vivant, but they always seemed way out of  my league. One of two props available as Fairy Tales is Lake Bodom. Before I get to the other stuff I want to warn you this prop has a land impact of 127 prims. So if you are on a tight prim budget make sure you have room for this prop. Lake Bodom comes with 8 female poses and 4 male poses. The poses come in pose balls, but they are mod so you can rip the poses out and put them in your favorite stand or HUD. I would have preferred the poses come outside of the balls. The poses are all well done and fit in well with the story that the prop is telling.

Its that time again, a new round of FaMESHed with some new mesh goodness for your inventory. I was happy to see that ColdLogic, one of my very favorite mesh stores, is one of the stores at FaMESHed this month. The Swift top and shorts are sold separately and available in 4 colors.  I’m wearing the orange sherbert.  You know I must love ColdLogic because I rarely do orange, and even the green looks good (green is that color I never do).  I just wanted to try something other than pink and I’m not sure about yellow. So I chose orange.
