Beauty Bar Disaster…

Beauty Bar Disaster #Foxcitychallenge3
Dena and I took a friends advice and went to visit what she said was the best salon in Second Life called the Beauty Bar ~ well as it was Valentines Day coming up along we went and .as you can see word of mouth is not always best…Giggling as you can see ♥ We did, however, have a great time while we waited and waited and waited ~ looks like the one on the left of Dena waited way longer than we did ~ and that poor drunk girl with all the free booze she just slid off the chair into the bowl ~ guess she will have a very wet bum along with a nasty hangover…Dena was surprised watching our manicurist turn into Mr. Bones as he was hot, hunky and handsome when we both sat down ~ since I am the impatient one, got up chose my own polish and did my own nails…looks like the Beauty Bar will not be getting any repeat business in the future as it looks DEAD♥♥♥

Dena and I had a blast putting this blog post together for the #FOXCITYCHALLENGE3, first time for us to try our hand with a challenge and hey even if we don’t win we had fun♥  Shot at my own using Foxcity’s latest photo booth Pink Bar along with the Foxcity Galentine Day Pose & Mani #7 pose ~ if you like to check out all the entries click HERE

Geisha girls…

Geisha Girls
Dena came up with the idea of this blog and I truly thought what a great idea and jumped into doing it enthusiastically until trying to find the hair, makeup took probably as long as the RL training to become a Geisha ~ laughing as that is so not true ~ for about a week now am having some major issues trying to sign in to the SL website so I could look at Marketplace from outside SL ~ without going into a lot of detail just saying it is getting frustrating after 4 days and not fixed *grumpy face*…still the idea finally got going with a bit of creative finesse as you can see by the pic above ~ what I said about the training for Geisha’s is true as the time relates to approximately 6 years ~ not just about the makeup or wardrobe but as a geisha you study music, language, dance and yes the traditional tea ceremony…also learning the proper way to speak, act and even walk in  in a floor-length kimono without tripping over her hem, and to pour sake so that her kimono sleeve doesn’t dip into the cup. In a group of men and geisha, she learns whom to greet first and how low to bow when greeting each person. She learns how to flatter a shy man, an arrogant man and a disinterested man with equal success…There is also the art of fixing your hair, wearing the kimono and the clogs that keep the hem from dragging on the ground without falling over…sadly in today’s world there are fewer than a thousand registered geishas as most females will go through that process as part of their family heritage or because it is a very romantic endeavor ♥  Side note is that all geisha females are single and if they decide to marry they must retire ~ also the first geishas were men, not women♥♥ Not a profession I would have ever considered as it takes most up to two hours just to get dressed not counting putting on makeup…

Bestie and Bride…

Bestie&Bride
When planning our wedding we truly wanted to keep it very simple, which we had made the decision no best man or maid of honor ~ still I wanted a pic of my bestie and me together as she has been there for me…plus I just had to show off our gowns again as how many times will I ever wear this wedding dress again ~ as we all know if you do go to weddings only the bride wears white SL or RL the protocol is you never want to outshine the bride…the dress Dena is wearing a Christmas gift from Scandalize as well as her necklace that did come as a gift from Lindens Shop & Hop event…

bestie
Here is a portrait in beauty as Dena shows off her bouquet and dress by herself ~ even though we had no bridal party she was my honorary maid of honor and just love the bouquet that matched mine…I love the rich color of her dress it was such a compliment to the wedding color we chose Christmas Red as we all know the protocol of never wearing white to someone’s wedding as you never want to outshine the bride on her special day…BTW I will admit that I am a tad behind on my blogging since this should have been posted right after the wedding and I got it mixed up with my Sax girl post so please have patience while I do catch up ~ RL has kept me busy for a chance I am having a social life LOL ~ take care & will be back very soon ~ hugzz ♥♥

Lets talk winter clothes in SL ~ there is some debate that designers should be putting out more clothes for winter as most of us looking out our windows it is winter time where people are wearing jackets, coats and sweaters indoors…for me personally and speaking with bestie Dena and couple other friends they do like to dress seasonally as well as decorate their homes and land also ~ now on the other side of the coin the consensus is that SL is always spring or summer so why wear winter clothing ~ there is no right or wrong answer for this as SL, which has a variety of sims that are winter with skiing, snowboarding and other winter activities that I absolutely love doing as am such a klutz on RL skis is a joke but in SL I can make it down the hill without falling on my azz LOL ♥ I would love to hear comments about this hot topic so please either comment on my blog or send me either an IM or NC inworld ~ my outfit is one from Ever an Angel close out sale that each one is only 50L and Dena is wearing a group gift from Scandalize that the group fee is FREE for the moment plus there is a huge wall of gifts for you to choose one or all ~ Dena and I along with Brutus to scout around for some winter sims just know that soon our most favorite of all winter sims “Christmas at Calas” will be coming soon as I know many of you have been there and love it as it always is one of the number 1 winter destinations ♥ I am so excited to see Ty and Truck’s creation every year as it just has that special magic ~ keep your eyes pealed to my blog for more details ~ thank you again to all my readers that have stayed with me through various transitions I am 99% sure that I have found my niche ♥♥

Today Dena and I finally got a chance to meet and went to check out the Imaginarium that just opened ~ part of the GimmeGacha group we knew there would be a lot of interesting and free pressies ~ today was no different as I am very selective on which ones I do pull for ~ when I saw this Mannequin Lamp by [Since 1975] I knew what I was going to spend my 75L on ~ was so excited to grab #3 in leather ~ in taking this pic Dena made the suggestion we dress all in white ~ the pic turned out just how I was looking for and knew to really make this pop I would take a bit of leeway in editing bumping up so you could see the mannequin lamp in all its splendor ~ was really worth the trip over as we enjoyed looking at all the unique and different gacha’s ~ absolutely love the creators imagination ~ now where to put it in the house hehehe ~ think hubby will notice or not *giggling* ~ to grab all the free pressies you do have to join the GimmeGacha group but its free and most of the gifts show off the creators talents ♥

beach day…

Relaxing...

Yesterday Dena and I finally got together and decided to escape to the beach to enjoy the last couple of weeks of summer ~ exploring a place called Baja Cove part of the Baja Norte sims was fun with the landscaping and sounds of the surf made the entire outing enjoyable…walking around wore us out so we pulled out the umbrella and picnic stuff and found a nice quiet place by the water to rest, relax and just enjoy the day…yes had to bring my book to finish up reading the latest James PattersonTexas Ranger” ~ am a huge fan of his ~ while I read Dena enjoys an ice cold glass of white wine that we brought…as we sit and enjoy listening to the ocean waves am going to also give you a closer look at one of 7 Deadly s[K]ins called Brooklyn

beachbabe

This is the freckled version of Brooklyn in Pineapple and wearing it browless as I do love my Lurid brows ~ younger I used to get freckles and freckles during the summer and got teased by the “mean girls” ~ for me it was no biggie as I was such a beach person I didn’t mind the freckles or the nose peeling even though I wore sunscreen and zinc oxide on nose and lips ~ was my badge to show everyone where I spent my summers in the outdoors enjoying the surf and sand ~ Izara Zuta creator/owner of 7 Deadly s[K]ins gives just enough of a smattering of freckles to look just perfect ♥  This gorgeous skin has 3 versions regular, blushing and freckled so please try a demo on to see how they will look on you ~ you can find Brooklyn at the Blush event till the 24th of September ~ rides will be below ~ Enjoy ♥♥

what mermaids…

mermaids...

Dena and I are standing here looking at that sign “don’t feed the mermaids” yet we think what mermaids, as we look out to pure sand, no ocean and course we know mermaids need water ~ chuckling at the vision of sand mermaids and wondering also what do mermaids eat ~, do you know?  Dena and I are showing off some clothing from Legendaire my newest sponsor ~ either on Marketplace or at the Main store you are going to find some really great bargains that are fresh, trendy without spending a huge amount of money ~ both our outfits are under 100 Lindens each.  Dena’s outfit “Lucy” comes with a hud of 8 choices that you can mix/match to give you a very nice variety ~ mine “Naomi” also has hud of 8 top textures, 4 pants textures, and 4 belt textures again that you can keep this one outfit looking fresh.  I truly recommend going over to the main store and check out all the new stuff along with the outlet section.  Kim also has the cutest selection of cats and dogs that I just couldn’t resist getting Duchess and Nala ~ that’s it for me as RL is yelling at me but remember please a little kindness to you and others goes a long way ♥ hugzz

Credits go to Kim Lysette for all her great creations and giving me the chance to blog for Legendaire ~ to my bestie for making time for us to FINALLY get together as I know her RL has been extremely busy busy ~ to all my followers and supporters that send me such nice comments I truly thank you ♥ Here is your LINK & RIDE to Marketplace & Main Store.
