Sunset Beach

The dog days of summer are slowly winding down. One more week of hot weather and we should be able to say hello to autumn. I took a trip to my favorite beach, Katlandoo, to cool off. 
I will be avoiding the beach next weekend when Labor Day will turn most ocean fronts into parking lots.

7 Deadly S{k}in and Supernatural jewelry are in the August collection @ Designer Showcase *
My outfit is from DE.Boutique, currently @ SWANK** and includes the shoes.
My nails are from Mani Pedi, of course, now @ Dazzle***.

Hair Fair 2019

Have you visited Hair Fair yet? Those of you who have been following me for a while know that I am a major hair whore. I won't say I never met a hair I didn't like, but they are few and far between. 

Hair Fair is a worthy cause that I can support whole heartedly. It offers the opportunity to sample the latest designs from many of SL's finest hair makers, as well as introducing some of the newer ones. 
Many of the shops have free gifts. 
15%-100% of each purchase goes to Wigs for Kids.

By the time you read this, those who battle to be the first at every event will be gone, so you might actually get in and be able to walk around. Be sure to go low script and low lag for the best experience. I actually went hairless, which is another Hair Fair tradition. There are shops offering bandanas and turbans for a small donation. 
Hair Fair helps provide wigs for kids who have lost their hair due to illness, so going hairless and buying a bandana is a show of support for the cause. 

I strongly urge you to join the Hair Fair Demo group and try the demos before arriving at Hair Fair.  Copy and paste this to chat to join ~ secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about

There are a number of shops with hair for the guys. Look for the MALE signs hanging above the shops. There are also prominent logo signs outside each shop to make it easier for you to find the particular hair maker you want.  

I'm wearing an EXCLUSIVE summery dress and shoes from DE.Boutique. You'll find these @ SWANK*.
My nails are from Mani Pedi, of course. The black ones are an Anniversary gift @ Dazzle.
My skin is from 7 Deadly S{k}ins and comes in fat packs of Dark and Light with 7 shades each. The jewelry is from Supernatural. The skin and jewelry are both available till August 28 @ Designer Showcase **.
I added the gift hair from Emo-tions for the pictures.

Weekend Carwash

It's hot! Summer has definitely taken its toll on a lot of us. The only cure is wearing as little as possible and applying liberal amounts of water both inside and out. A car wash seemed a good idea, but I think I'm getting sun burned even in the shade of the garage.
A cute shorts set from Wellmade helps while making me look HOT ! The only other things I'm wearing are multi earrings from Livia and tropical nail polish from Cazimi. You can find these and other cool items @ Designer Showcase for August.

She Shed

You don't usually find furniture @ Designer Showcase, but occasionally there will be unique offering like this living room set from Aphrodite Shop / Heart Homes. It includes the couch, lamps, tables with accesssories, rug, plants and two sets of deco art frames for the wall.
It fit perfectly inside my Rosebud She Shed from Funky Junk.
Hanging round the SS in a cute ensemble from Wild. The dress comes with 15 prints in a rainbow of colors and includes the jewelry. 
  • I'm showing two shades of the 7 Deadly S{k}ins offering for August @ Designer Showcase. You'll find collections of dark or light shades as well as a custom shape. As always with skins, I haven't added any makeup for the picture. I really like this skin and have used both the Snow and Maple shades in various pictures this month. I'm using my own shape; be sure and try out the demos to see if this look will make you as happy as it made me.
  • You'll find the shoes in DE.Boutique's Main Store. 
  • My nails are from Mani Pedi, of course. These are available @ Dazzle.

Wild Child

Everybody has an outfit in SL that they would never even consider wearing in RL. It's mandatory! This outfit from Legendaire fills that category for me. Laced pants, animal prints... so not RL Azzy, but look how cute it is! You'll find this outfit and many more @ Designer Showcase*.

As usual with Legendaire designs, there are multiple texture choices with this outfit.
Chose from 10 colors for the pants and 10 textures for the top, everything from stripes to florals to camo. I kept the jewelry and accessories to a minimum (this it the jungle after all!) I'm wearing the earrings and rings from Moondance Boutique and tropical green nails from Cazimi.
