Skin Fair 2013: On the Right Paige, with Rockberry

The time is running out quickly for Skin Fair 2013 and you know you do not want to miss it, so head on over there as soon as you can. There are two sims full of stores with all sorts of skin yumminess, there is sure to be something you’ll love.

Catty - Rockberry 2G

One of the skins I discovered at Skin Fair, and love bunches is the newest Rockberry, Paige. Shown here is the natural tone (you can choose between four tones), and two of my most favorite make ups, but I couldn’t decide on another to show, so I decided to give you a glimpse of them all. Paige comes in twelve make up options per skin tone. You can choose just one at a very afforable price, or buy the whole pack for your best value, and you surely won’t be disappointed. You also will get tattoo layers for black and brown eyebrows, as well as freckles too. You also get the option of cleavage, or not, on the skin itself which is always nice as you wont be losing important things at the wrong time!

Catty - Rockberry 1L

Also shown here, are some new eyes from Mayfly which I love. They are mesh and come with assorted white options, and you can size them too to fit most any AV. Pose Fair 2013 starts too this weekend, and here I give you a teaser of some fun new poses from HelaMiyo. Pose Fair runs for about two weeks so you’ve plenty of time to get there after you shop skin fair, but I’ve given the link to HelaMiyo here as I know you’ll want to grab these poses up quick too, and it has just opened.

The Hair Fair Taxi – At Your Service!!! Grab a Friend and Shop!!

My absolute favorite event of the year has begun! Hair Fair 2012 is here!!!!! The year went by way too fast, and offered a few RL shake ups that helped to remind me that family is always first, so I’m not able to participate, this year, as a designer….but that hasn’t stopped me from loving Hair Fair, nor from getting all excited about it!

HF Taxi Service

First thing I noticed when I finally got to visit Hair Fair a few days after it had begun…was this Ride a Prim “Taxi” thing! Even before I noticed the hair shops and layout, I saw this. Is it new this year? I think so, at least, it’s new to me, but I admit, I’m not always the most observant owl in the forest. I’d gone over to Hair Fair with partner in shopping and blogging, Jeni..so , seeing that you could tempRez a prim for one, two, or four, I immediately rezzed a prim for two and insisted she hop on the taxi too! I remember at my very first Hair Fair, back in 2007…being one of the lucky first to get in, it was so laggy, and there were prims rezzed which we could sit on and taxi ourselves around much easier then trying to walk. While I haven’t found this years Hair Fair to be laggy, I still think this is a great way to shop with friends! More events should do this, I love it!.

HF2012-Destination

Hair Fair 2012 is on now thru Sunday, July 29, so don’t delay if you haven’t already been there.

Keeping Calm & Catching Up

May is rushing past and I’ve hardly had a time to keep up. Finally I got a chance to delve into some SL and see what I’ve almost missed. First thing I did to catch up was take a peek at the Keep Calm & Keep Shopping event, going on now thru May 28,2012. Participating designers have created exclusive items for this event, that will not be available later, so you will not want to miss any! See the Keep Calm & Keep Shopping blog for full list of stores and other info.

Catching Up & Keeping Calm 1

Dirty Little Secret has something fun for KCKS, a Dressmaker’s Studio. You can see a peek of it here, it’s filled with furniture and decor and makes a great hang out for all designer and fashiony types, and its plenty roomy for creating in. Clutter, one of my fave stores, has a yummy chair out, I managed to find a special spot for it in the Studio. Coloreta’s is a store new to me, and this top they’ve made includes a very cool skirt but I opted to wear it with my favorite white jeans for a fun summer look.

Catching Up & Keeping Calm 2

I also got a chance to check out some new tatts from Essential Soul, and I’m loving this Koi Pond..I usually don’t go for colorful but I cannot seem to take it off. A few of my favorite groups have been sending gifts of late too, Belleza being one, with the nummilicious Lily V2 which has me thinking I need more of this skin for sure. Pixel Mode has gifted it’s subscribers with a fun pair of blue wedgies, perfect for summer wear.

Finding Your Balance at Back to Black

BacktoBlack5

Balance is an important element of life, a struggle we all must go thru in all aspects of life. At Chic Management’s Back to Black event, you’ll find all kinds of inspirational, supportive and informative goodies just waiting to help you get your balance.

“If the mind, that rules the body, ever so far forgets itself as to trample on its slave, the slave is never generous enough to forgive the injury, but will rise and smite the oppressor.” ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Back to Black 6

Back to Black is well underway and if you haven’t yet been, now is a good time. The lag has been manageable and there is much much great stuff so you’ll want to be sure to have some time to look it all over. No doubt you’ll also get sidetracked reading some of the info provided about various mental health issues, so plan lots of time. It’s so fun to see what the different designers have done to reflect their interpretation, experiences and/or interests regarding such an important topic for all of us. I’ve had fun playing with the different props, accessories and clothing from Back to Black, and here are just a few of my fave pics (There’s a few more back on Flickr). The lovely Sn@tch blouse that will go with so many things, the delicious Lassitude & Ennui boots (I’m hoping for a matching corset, complete with detailed lace up), the yoga studio (Flickr) from Elefantu, the well executed poses from Geez, and so much more. Back to more shopping and more photoing for me, see you there!

Girlfriends Gone Shopping!! Starting 2012 on the Right Foot with Skins!!

Catty Got Harper'd

With the holidays over, it’s time to settle back into SL, get some blogging, shopping, sorting, socializing, etc done. I was delighted on Saturday to hear that Hey Girlfriend!’s very own talented Sachi had worked her artistic magic again, this time with a delicious new skin named after our lovely Harper. Jeni and I rushed right over to try it out. Sachi, being the sweetie she is, has a gift set out, so when you demo Harper, you’ll get some yummy make ups.

HG - Jeni Haz Skillz

As you may notice, our Jeni was so excited about it all that she just had to show us some of her many talents, with a little help from the goofy grid.

HG - Got Shoes?

Earlier in the day someone in the group mentioned shoes. I’ve been looking around for new shoes and boots lately so I tp’d along to SLink. I hate shoes, RL and SL, I’m so finicky when it comes to look, color, fit etc I just could pull out my prim hair. The grid was giving me grief, so I haven’t yet been able to try on demos, but I did grab a nice pile to try on when I can. I’m sure you’ll be seeing some SLink shoes here in the near future, I do love their quality.

HG-SLink2 - Catty and Jeni

It was so fun to see a few Girlfriends out, tho I wasn’t able to get pics of others that showed up, I did of course get Jeni and I, as well as AmazingGrace as she was slinking behind the shoe display.

HG-SLink3 - AmazingGrace

We really do need to get the group out having more fun…and hopefully, you’ll get to see some of us here in the blog as we adventure about. And maybe even I’ll have shoes on…if I find some new ones. Back to shopping and whatnot, see you again soon. Oh, and have a very delightful New Year!!!
