Hair Fair 2014 Photo Contest.

I decided I’d enter a photo for this year’s Hair Fair photo contest. With the theme being music, I wanted to show I use music to express all of my feelings. Whether I’m feeling overjoyed, ecstatic, free, serene, tense or even heartbroken. I can find the perfect song to fit my mood. Music makes me feel the emotions I need to at that very moment and for that reason music is very much my therapy and I couldn’t live without it. If you would like to enter the Hair Fair photo contest, all of the information can be found here. For now I’ll leave you with this…

I’m sick of seeing you cry
And wasting all your time
On someone who will never care enough
To make you feel loved
To make you feel safe
I would drop my life to take his place.

I’ve been wanting to decorate my raft from Sari-Sari for a while now and with all the new arcade things I finally got around to it. The raft includes a tea set, blanket and pillows with a few poses for both males and females. A perfect summertime retreat!

We All Scream For Ice Cream!

I was over the moon that I won the secret rare from 8f8, I had to show it off. One of my guilty pleasures in life is ice cream. Of course, this was one machine I’d be playing a lot of at the arcade. I’m still far from getting the whole set but I’m happy with a portion of my SL yummies and I’d give anything to have that sundae right now. :p

An Arcade Preview.

I’m sure you’re all looking forward to the June round of The Arcade, I know I am. Once again, there’s so much cuteness I want to squeal! The Skinnery brings a new skin, Chloe, to this round with eleven skins, three being rare, along with a rare eyebrow pack up for grabs. Secondly, I wanted to show you a glimpse of what Imeka has created for this round. This sweet summer set is perfect for your home or garden. It’s hard for me to choose my favorite item because I adore all of them. I hope you’ve saved your lindens because there’s only a few days before The Arcade begins!

I had to have this garden shed from Vespertine, It’s out today for Fifty Linden Friday. There are two versions, a simple one and another with 11 poses. The crates and bunting are separate but at only 50L each, how could you not? It works perfectly with my Lark Arcade items, all I have to do now is set up my garden. Most of these items can be found at The Arcade. If not, you’ll find a link below.

Time For Tea And Cupcakes.

This arcade round started out a bit rough but I know we all held in there because it was worth it! Below I’m showing quite a bit from the latest round and I’m not going to say these are all of my favorites but I will say it’s a start on some of them. Now, won’t you sit and have a cuppa tea with me?

My Animal Friends.

I was loving on my new animal friends that I couldn’t pass up showing them off. Since my hubby loves bears so much I gave him my cute lil polar bear avatar to strike a pose with me. All I can say is OMG Cuteness! The AO with this bear is simply adorable. Every one of the new arctic friends are so fun, there’s several options which are explained in the lovely picture book HUD. These are worth the 50L a play and I was lucky enough to get two rare owls in a row! I’m also adoring  another 50L gacha item from Half Deer. Seven unique yaks perfect for your winter decor. I’m sure I’ll be playing this machine a bit more because who doesn’t need more yaks? :p

Keeping Warm.

Today I wanted to get a little cozy and show off some of my Christmas Decor. I’ve got quite a bit from the Four Walls Hunt and if you haven’t yet, it ends tomorrow. Every prize found is only 20L and of very good quality. Plus, nothing is that hard to find. I couldn’t forget about Fifty Linden Friday and I have to say my favorite this round is definitely from LISP. There are two sets including loads of Christmas goodies. For only 50L it’s a steal. Hope everyone has a great Friday the 13th!

The Howl Of The Winds.

Not that I don’t love every Collabor88 round but I LOVE this round! Other than BooN, I’ve not found any dreads that I’ve liked in SL. Well, Tableau Vivant made me so happy with this new release fatpack for only 188L. I’m hoping there are more dreadlock styles in the future. Secondly, I’m showing off new glitter eye shadow from adored bodyshop, the pack includes 5 colors and fits easily over any skin. Lastly,I noticed that Fishy Strawberry is closing it’s doors and couldn’t believe it, I’ve been shopping there for years. I picked up a few things because everything in the store is only 25L until the 14th. Enjoy your night!

If We Open Our Hearts, Our Wishes Would Come True.

I started thinking about how I’m going to be able to go back home and visit family for Christmas which made me so happy! I might even be able to catch a few snowflakes while I’m there. This inspired today’s post. Below I’ve got a few new freebies and cheapies for you. Izzie’s has 2 items under her tree in the front of the store. One of the gifts are these cute Rudolph addon nails and they’re free! Secondly, there’s a silver snowflake and earring set for only 10L. Both of these items are definitely worth the time to pick up. I’m also wearing the group gift from Truth, which I think by now everyone has seen but if you haven’t or you didn’t get the delivery through the subscriber, TP to the store and click the redelivery terminal for history. Lastly, the Geeks and Nerds event ends tomorrow, the sweater and cardigan I’m wearing is by B.C.C for the event. It comes with a hud to change the color and pattern of the turtleneck. Hope you had a great Saturday! <3
