No Scare Hair

No Scare Hair

If you look at Mirja Mill’s hair for Hair Fair this year, you might think she was one fierce chick. The truth is Mirja’s a pussycat who makes ferocious fantasy hair. Mirja is rolling out the feral and fiery for Hair Fair this year.

No Scare Hair

I can’t help but think Mirja had a bit of fun with these. She went back to her fantasy roots with these pieces, combining her great imagination for styles with her exquisite jewelry work. If you get one of these styles, you get that extra bonus of jewels and horns.

No Scare Hair

But don’t limit yourself to thinking that they are simply for RP: many can be worn without so they would be wonderful on their own as simple hair pieces. I especially like the two long styles with braids and sensuous locks curling down the back. Imagine these in another color not on a drow, and they are suddenly very romantic and sexy.

No Scare Hair

Mirja’s ‘dos all come with a great texture-change HUD with several options in both regular and “fade” combos. Additionally, the jewels have color change options, so you can customize your look to the nth degree.

Let me give a quick note about this absolutely stunning drow skin that Inka Mexicola is offering in a gacha at Kustom 9. Get it. Seriously.

No Scare Hair

I want to note that Mirja is always amazingly generous for charity festivals such as this one. She co-sponsored a sim for Fashion for Life and set up a gorgeous store. For Hair Fair she has created these five exquisite pieces, kicking 50% to Wigs for Kids. She is also offering the Medusa style with a texture-change HUD as a visitors’ gift. That’s beyond amazing. She is definitely a sweetheart, regardless of her wild and untamed locks.No Scare Hair

Clouds in My Coffee

Clouds in My Coffee

“I had some dreams. They were clouds in my coffee, clouds in my coffee.” ~ “You’re So Vain” by Carly Simon

Clouds in My Coffee

Home with a cup of coffee is where I want to be. I recently remodeled in SL with some new pieces including this kitchen set from Tobias Convair, an architect who has an eye for what a good kitchen in SL needs for décor. Included with the set are PG and Adult animations for a full kitchen narrative. (You can get busy with your honey or just share coffee.)

My top is one that Circe Ishtari put out a couple months ago but I have been saving it for the perfect look. It comes with a texture change HUD and the ability to color the ruffle and seams, which allows various iterations of the top. I waited well because these new jean capris from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus are going to be worn frequently this summer for casual looks. I love the painted denim they include in their extensive texture-change HUD. Finally, an African-inspired necklace from Maxi Gossamer, which is one of her featured pieces at Collabor88, which just opened, punctuates the look with a little fashion. (And Pho noticed my nails match my top perfectly with little flowers, thanks to one of Sasy Scarborough’s designs.)

Clouds in My Coffee

Dutchie Hoorenbeek came up with this clever little four-person table that could serve 1-4 people and she has expanded the idea with newly fashioned chairs in an arts and crafts theme. Dutchie has a fine eye for what people want in furniture—classic, usable, and wonderful animated. An entire meal can be had at these tables with place settings appearing as needed. She also supplies extra settings for viewings as this. With artwork and lighting, the scene is contemporary and cozy.

Clouds in My Coffee

My new skin is Sawsan Secretspy’s luscious Melodia. With sensual lips and eyes and a pretty blush, this skin suits many shapes and comes with appliers for most body parts. My long locks are Mirja Mills’ newest, suitable for both men and women, as she shows in her ads. I love her textures and the fine wisps that curl about.

Fashion for Life doesn’t just have modern dress, you can also find romantic pieces. That’s the thing with FFL—all designers willing to make the donation to have a store are accepted. This way, it’s a group effort by anyone willing to give to Relay for Life and American Cancer Society without exclusivity. So a beautiful old-fashioned dress like this one, which has been made by Bodza Mubble. She has combined a great mesh corset with system pieces and flexi to create this lovely look for fantasy or role play. I gamboled about in the parks at FFL Voyage, enjoying Jara Lowell’s lovely build.

My skin is Aida Ewing’s new gorgeous work for Collabor88 with lovely brows, expressive eyes and of course, the gorgeous lips she always has. My hair is Mirja Mills’ contribution for Fashion for Life, which is a great piece for casual wear or RP, and it works great with the pretty headdress from Bodza that comes with the dress.

I want to note that Mirja is a sim sponsor for FFL with a huge donation, and she filled a ridiculous number of RFL vendors with her hair without a peep of complaint or confusion, each one kicking back a portion to RFL. She has always been enthusiastic and supportive of Fashion for Life, and for this, I am so grateful personally. I have If nothing else, buy a hair from her at Fashion for Life because her stuff is awesome and so is she!

Smokin’

Smokin'

I am no more

a Boy Scout and, besides,
could never

put you out—you
keep me on

all day like an iron, out
of habit—

you threaten, brick-
house, to burn

all this down. You leave me
only a chimney.

~ From “Song of Smoke” by Kevin Young

Smokin'

A piece of a hot poem for a hot look. (Oh gosh I love this poem from Kevin Young.) I went over to the Dark Style and picked up some sexy items including this lingerie from Tatyana Ultsch, who includes appliers for top and bottom, though I only used the top on my mesh boobs from Riann Maltese. (I think my bottom is fine enough as is.) Sexy shoes from Promagic complete the look over Slink feet.

Smokin'

My skin is one of Shyla Diggs’ lovely makeup looks on Tricky Boucher’s base. Love the details of the body, especially that lovely butt and the hip bones. My hair is Mirja Mills’ beguiling retro style for My Attic.

If I am looking a bit more voluptuous, I am in this outfit. I think to balance a big top, a woman needs the bod to hold it all, including a bigger waist and bigger hips. This look is luscious and sexy and absolutely smokin’ without being exaggerated or cartoonish. (Hint: a little fullness to the belly and butt adds to the plush.)

~ “Magic” by Coldplay

Magic

The sun outside seems like magic after such a long winter. Now if it would just warm up. I don’t care really—gotta show some leg and with this mini from GraceHaddington I can do just that. Grace is featuring this at DOPE Fashion Week, which is ending soon so get down there to find some sexy and elegant urban fashions. (Found my darling earrings from Adrianne Stormcrow there cheap.) Grace, as always, includes a texture-change HUD and I was able to choose the top and skirt separately. And the price is right! Paired with absolutely sexy slingbacks from Eku Zhong and a handbag from Grace, also with texture-change HUD, I am ready to step out and enjoy magic!

Magic

The real magic is this gorgeous skin from Steffi Villota that I got a few weeks back and am finally showing. I love the elegance of Steffi’s skins, the gentle blush and lovely features. She includes colorable layers that allow you to make your own makeup. In this case I made a pretty pink lip and I have blue shadow, which you can only partially see through Hays Uriza’s texture change glasses. Click on the glasses and find a variety of lens translucencies and tints to customize your look. Finally, find this chic and short ‘do from Mirja Mills, which looks great on men (well devastatingly sexy, actually) and short and sassy on women. And once again, like magic that I look great!

Magic

Wanna fall

I wanna fall
I fall so hard

The 100 Block is still going on and there are some drop dead sexy things, including Kehl Razor’s dress/top with its great texture change HUD. It comes in a solid, which I show here, and with an illustrated front and what makes it so dang sexy are the slashes through the fabric, the little ties at the side and sleeves (which can be color-changed separately from the top), and the slinky shape which is only possible in mesh. He hit the critical length to make this sexy alone (just barely covers the bottom) or great with pants. I had to wear it with Eboni Khan’s 21 Shoes exclusive boots, which will be off sale in a couple hours, so GO get them ASAP.

Clever

I always feel very sexy in skins from Shyla Diggs and Tricky Boucher. Shyla has a great sense of makeup colors and shading so that the skin comes off as sophisticated and classy. My tousled hair from Mirja Mills is her latest and comes with her special texture-change HUD with her lush delicious textures.

Rogan Diesel has come out with this sexy pose chaise at the Pose Fair 2014. Rogan has a lot of ideas about what makes a lady sexy, and he expresses them perfectly with his gorgeous pose props. The beautiful lines of the chair would make it ideal as a piece of furniture in a boudoir but the poses make it something fantastic and make me look clever as the Devil.

“Tell me what you eat, I’ll tell you who you are.” ~ Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Homespun

I am pretty excited. I just bought my first CSA share after attending a farmers’ open house at a local park. CSA means “Community Supported Agriculture,” and it means I just purchased a share of the crop a local farmer will be harvesting this year. Each week I will get something like a half bushel of a variety of produce (and eggs and other good stuff if I opt in) delivered to a home near me from a farm about an hour away. If you’re curious, you can click here to see a CSA box from another local farm being filled. I am excited because I have really enjoyed visiting farmers’ markets in my city and now it’s coming to me and I know I am helping support a local farming family. I will be challenged this summer and fall learning how to prepare some items I have not cooked with before—fennel, anyone? But I am taking to heart Alice Waters’ ideas about eating locally, eating in season and eating sustainably.

This darling patchwork dress from Ariadna Garrigus made me think about this again, though I signed up over a week ago and won’t see my first share until June. The beauty of her patchwork on this mesh skirt paired with a crocheted top made me think of homemade goodness and going back to the earth. She cinches it with a wide leather belt and the dress form comes in three other variations.

Homespun

Aleida Rhode is offering this gorgeous skin at Skin Fair. In 7 tones with eyebrow variations and cleavage options. She also features 15 lipsticks in a variety of shades (not just pinks and reds) and all the appliers you would ever need. It’s Aleida’s typically high style, elegant approach to skin making.

A long braid, pulled up in back and bound in sections down its length is Mirja Mills’ newest offer. With wispy pieces slipping out in front, it’s romantic and sexy. With Mirja’s great HUD, especially the “natural” colors, it’s a great look for RP or every day wear.

Phenomenol Woman

It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

~ from “Phenomenol Woman” by Maya Angelou

Phenomenol Woman

Phenomenal woman, yep, that’s me. I can’t help but think it’s my look today. Start with Poulet Koenkamp’s newest dress, which comes in several color variations. With a patterned tiered skirt and a sweetheart neckline, this dress has a lot going on. I pair it with Mirja Mills’ newest jewelry set in black and white with teensy intricate design and beautifully rendered textures.

Phenomenol Woman

The story here, of course, is Nicole Button’s newest releases for Skin Fair 2014. These skins are phenomenal with lush skin tones and absolutely drop dead gorgeous features. I put this skin on and I was hooked. Each skin pack comes in 6 skin tones and includes two natural skins in bright and soft (meaning one is more burnished than the other), two lip glosses, four eyebrow colors, hairbases, and a ton of cleavage options. She also includes mesh ears and appliers for just about everything you ever need. Truth Hawks’ gorgeous full long locks complete my look, making it sexy and sensuous and woman—phenomenally.

Phenomenol Woman

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Glamorous

Glamorous

“I don’t mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can’t be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won’t like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it’s based on femininity.” ~ Marilyn Monroe

Glamorous

Being glamorous in SL is a lot easier in SL than RL because there are so many with a glamorous vision to give us beauty. Mami Jewell recently created this gorgeous dress with her unique lush satin textures and shaping. She combines a beautiful off-the-shoulder dress with translucent flexi prims (notice how they don’t cast a shadow) to create a dress with true old-fashioned glamour. Worn with AvaGardner Kungler’s newest jewelry set, inspired by the colors of Brazilian carnival, and accessorized with a beaded clutch from Yula Finesmith, the look is drop dead gorgeous.

Glamorous

Chandra Masala is showing two new lines at the Skin Fair 2014. The Meenakshi skin comes in 5 tones with eyebrow variations, 6 lipsticks and 6 eyeshadows, and even an optional bindi plus cleavage and all the standard appliers. Chandra has touched this skin with her own spiciness and added elegant touches such as well-groomed, shapely brows (that can be altered quite drastically with her included bald heads.) Her skin is devastatingly elegant with an underlying sexiness. Deep dark brown eyes from Lano Ling (and brown eyes are not easy to pull off in SL) make the skin even more beautiful. I have worn one of Mirja Mills’ elegant up-dos, a gorgeous variation on the French twist, dramatically swept up and over.

A Good Man, Understand?

A Good Man, Understand?

I’ve traveled for miles around
Seems like everybody wanna put me down
Because I’m a bluesman
But I’m a good man, understand

I went down to the bus station
Look upon the wall
My money is too light people
Couldn’t go no where at all
I’m a bluesman
But I’m a good man, understand

The burden that I carry, oh is so heavy
It seems like ain’t nobody in this great big world
That would wanna, wanna help old B.
Hey, but I’ll, I would be all right people
Just give me a break, good things come
To those who wait, and I’ve waited a long time
I’m a bluesman
But I’m a good man, understand

~ “Blues Man” by B.B. King

A Good Man, Understand?

The lyrics are not about me—they are about a good man I met through SL who changed my trajectory in SL in the best way possible. Dirk Talamasca, the original Land Baron, the blues man, the Black Hat, mentor, and original FIC, is terribly ill right now. His brother has been sending reports via Dirk’s account in Facebook and has said Dirk has taken a turn for the worse. If you’re an oldbie in SL like me, you knew Dirk, probably personally as I did. He rented land to people, he mentored, he argued, he encouraged, AND he flirted shamelessly. He was a strong, lively personality that helped shape the SL we all know in so many ways no one will ever be able to list them all. I feel so unable to articulate Dirk’s importance to SL, to the community, to what we all have become. Take my word for it—he’s a big deal.

So this post is dedicated to Dirk with a blues song and a sexy look because, frankly, Dirk never shied away from enjoying being a man.

I start the look with this sexy dress from Kim Lysette at LivGlam from the K Collection. The dress comes with a HUD with 20 different textures on it so when you purchase it, you basically get the ultimate fat pack. The mesh fits well—I barely had to modify my shape for it to fit me to a T. Sexy high heeled shoes from Eboni Khan make my legs look long. (Please note, I am wearing size S feet and they fit the shoe perfectly. I can not guarantee if you use a different sized Slink foot that they will fit as well.) I used green polish on my fingernails and pink the on toenails, both from the same HUD set from Sasy Scarborough. My jewelry is one of the sets Maxi Gossamer is offering at Collabor88 with color change stones.

A Good Man, Understand?

Umazuma Metaluna is premiering this gorgeous, luscious skin at Skin Fair 2014. With bee stung lips and a blushing countenance, Uma offers the skin in 8 tones with blush and glow layers and a unique set of lip tattoos that come in different intensities so you can custom color them using the SL editor to your pleasure. I tinted my lips with a very slight orange, aiming for a natural coral.

My eye makeup is one of the bold looks that Madrid Solo is selling at Skin Fair 2014. As per her usual work, the colors are bold and arresting but not garish. The eyeliner gives a special sexiness to this look. The set includes 15 eyeshadows and 14 lipsticks.

Finally, Mirja Mills has released this gorgeous, pulled back hair with a combo of mesh and flexi prims. Paired with the widow’s peak hairbase she includes, it’s a gorgeous look with sexy curly locks.
