A Little Road Trip

Hello beautiful people!! So I went traveling all over the SL worlds, with my lovvy.  And found some amazing items.  New events are now opened.  Please keep in mind that while these events are opened just fresh, you need to be patient in the fact that it will be hard to get into.

Men's Dept.

I think though I bought the most from Collabor88 including this amazing little bug ♥ This car is perfect for the vintage look, or your beachy look.  The car comes in different colors, and I personally really loved the green one the moment I seen it.  There is pink, blue,  and yellow to choose from as well.  While here you can find my outfit which is Erratic (I let the boyfriend choose the colors, isn't he great, I really love his style choice)  There are a ton of colors available for the choosing, and there is the fatpacks too.  Which will give you unlimited amounts of choices for your mix and matches.  I also got my hair from here too.  This is by Exile.  I really love his styles, there are a plethora of colors, all of which come in color packs and they are all so pretty.  All of which I needed so the fatpack was a choice for me!

While I am big on the whole men need their own look - I couldn't help but lay claim to these aviator glasses.  I got them at the Men' s Department, now you can blame Caleb for the reason I have them, because he dragged me to the event and I welp I bought them! But these frames are extremely well made, they are from ZOOM.  What I like is that there are different metal choices as well as different lens choices.  So you can pick different looks and essentially have different glasses each time you wear them ... or you can be like me and choose your favorite, which is the silver with slightly black lens.

Now, I am gonna end here because I am rambling and well we all know that no one reallllly reads these things.  So have fun shopping and show off your looks.  ♥

Hair Fair 2017 For Men

This year's Hair Fair is quickly coming to a close (last day is Sunday, July 16th) and there were quite a few hair selection for the men. All donations go to Wigs for Kids, providing charitable assistance to children who have lost their hair due to medical issues. So while you shop, know that your contribution is going to a good cause!

I ended up picking up four different pieces, but one in particular stood out in its uniqueness. Argrace's MIKAGE hair is no ordinary hair, featuring dripping wet hair strands and, most notably, a towel draped on top of the head. Certainly not an every day hair, but for the perfect situation, it is most definitely the perfect when I just hopped out of the shower after a long day. Nothing like washing off that summer heat with a nice cold shower.

MIKAGE is rigged mesh, coming in two sizes for men and eight sizes for women with varying size chest areas. The towel can be changed to six different colors: white, light blue, pink, light brown, dark brown, and navy blue.

You can get this awesome hair at Argrace's vendor at Hair Fair. While you are there, be sure to check out all the other hairs, as there are quite a bit to choose from at the four total sims this year. To make it easy, male hairs can be easily located if you look above each store and checking if there is a male symbol there or not. This made shopping at the event so much easier! So no excuses - go check out the Hair Fair before it ends and support Wigs for Kids!

Shhhh ....

Good Evening my lovies! ♥  As the Hair Fair for 2017 is starting to come to an end (The 16th of July actually) is the perfect time to head over and do your shopping.  Now that the hype is slowing down you can get into the sim with ease and do your shopping.  Today I am showing off hair from RedMint.  Now honestly, I haven't blogged her hair in a while, but when I seen this lovely thing sitting on the shelf I had to have it! I really liked how its a bit of a mess hair, its not prim and proper and I love it.  It makes perfect for that shhhh moment I am having right now.  Purchasing this hair, you are sending parts of your purchase price to WIGS for KIDS helping out a great organization for littles that need a little boost of happy in their day ♥ Every little bit counts.

If you head over to Addams, you will see that she has placed out a new group gift.  These are the panties that everyone on flickr has been asking for. They are high waisted and totally amazing.  She even is giving us the fat pack.  When you head into the store, you will find them on the wall with the other gifts.  Make sure you are wearing your tag, or the machine will invite you to join the group.  So make sure you join and grab the other amazing gifts on the wall!! You can change the color of the panties and the bands and trim.  Something I love doing when mixing and matching looks. Such a great gift.

For this look I wanted to have my eyes closed and honestly I never really liked how bento heads made the eyes look when closed so really, its all heads and not just mine.  So I dug out my slink lids, and they worked amazing.  Now I have achieved that sensual look of shhhh, just take it feeling.  I am still in love with how the lids fit, and they did well with my bento head, I had only a little adjustment to make, my suggestion for smooth lids if you use them is to remove your lashes or alpha hid them on your huds so they don't poke through the skin of the lids.  Easy peasy and good to go!

Have fun shopping !! ♥

A little Gelato ..

Hello my beautiful people, I wanted to shed a little light on two events that are happening right now.  One being the Hair Fair! There is less than a week to do your shopping.  The event ends on the 16th.  Here you will find some of the best designers in SL giving to a good cause.  Portions of the sales will be going to the charity Wigs for Kids.  I am a proud supporter of this charity and have been for a long time.  Each year money is raised for such event and we all go and get hairs and in return our money is donated and turned into wigs for little kids that are desperate need of them.  Lets all do our part and support them!

The second is Summer Fest 2017 - here I had a fun day of wander around with the boyfriend and seeing what fun things we could purchase for ourselves and the land.  But I found this cute bathing suit that is by Apple May Designs.  I always love her stuff. This cute two piece can be purchased in many colors.  I am in love with this minty color, and there is a nice large bow on the back that gives it that touch of feminine that gives off the old style of a look which is beautiful.

I am also going to send a little shout out to my good friend Rowan who has her own pose shop on the marketplace.  She has made good looking female poses, that are worthy of any girls pose sets.  I am using one from the standing poses and I am sure you all will find what you are looking for on her store site.  Check it out and see if you like anything ♥

MadPea Summer Hunt Experience

Hey, it's Caleb. Caleb Bryant. There's not a simple explanation for - just kidding. This isn't 13 reasons why the MadPea Summer Hunt is amazing. In fact, if I were to list all the reasons out, there would probably be more than just 13. Simply put, if you haven't at least tried to participate in the newest interactive event produced by none other than the innovative MadPea Productions, then I will say that you are missing out.

I've been a MadPea supporter since 2014, buying into only the products I always thought were "so cool!" - my exact words. However, I did not join in on these events and games until rather recently (Sinister Slaughters, The Tower, Glass Jar exPEAdition, the Mystery Case). Other die-hard MadPeas who have participated in games and ExPEAditions since the beginning would probably be shaking their heads at me because I had missed out on all the fun. Sadly, it is true - I had been missing out! But not anymore, and here's to hoping those who are reading this don't miss out any more like I have been.

The MadPea Summer Hunt - How it works

Here's a brief breakdown on how the MadPea Summer Hunt works. For $100L, you can purchase a MadPea Summer Hunt HUD at the MadPea HQ that grants you ability to hunt for seashells that have been placed out gridwide from June 25th to July 9th. To find these seashells, the HUD acts like a compass/radar that leads you to the treasure. Depending on the types of seashells collected, you gain a certain number of points. Some shells give 10 points, some 25, some 50, and even 100 points (during the time period of July 2-4). With these points, you can redeem some fantastic prizes, perfect for having fun in the summer, that can be found here.

Trust me, these prizes are really great quality. At first, the main reason why I even participated in this hunt were for the rewards! But as I continued with the hunt, there's a lot more to why this hunt stands out and is the most addictive hunt I have ever done, which I will go into further below.

To learn more about the MadPea Summer Hunt, go here:

The MadPea Summer Hunt - Fun?

Definitely! You might say: "But it's just a hunt, I've done hundreds of those!" This hunt is definitely a different breed of hunting. In fact, it is the best hunt I have ever participated in since my 10 years in SL. First off, you are hunting to earn points which you later redeem for a high quality prize(s) of your choosing. Your points are kept track of in real time and there is a gridwide leaderboard system. Plus, this hunt has been created by a professional business company so you bet that the hunt will run smoothly with a large support team and a large MadPea community at your fingertips.

Second, you are split into teams (there are three teams total), racing for points and unlocking more prizes as a team entity and as a collective. I really enjoyed the introduction of teams racing against each other for points. It vastly broadened the monotony of solo hunting and created a more engaging gridwide gameplay that invites more interaction, and of course, competition. More individually competitive than team competitive? There's a daily $500L reward to each of the top point contributors of each team as an incentive for those lone wolf hunters. Top three hunters by the end of the hunt receive a big reward of $5K for 1st place, $3K for 2nd place, and $2K for 3rd place.

Third, while the hunt lasts only for two weeks, the shells themselves are scripted to only last for a limited amount of time (24, 48, or 72 hours), making the hunt a lot more dynamic. Shells may disappear from where you may have last found them the day before and may or may not reappear at a totally different place on the sim. New shells are being placed out daily at different sims, making the hunt a constant mystery of where the HUD will take you next.

Fourth, while you are hunting for these seashells, the MadPea HUD can take you to some really neat locations. And even though this is listed fourth way down, I will say that going out to see all these new locations in the SL world has been the most rewarding part of this MadPea adventure. To be fair, because of the business model of which MadPea has allowed anyone with a fee to participate in hiding these seashells for traffic, exposure, and participation, some of these locations you will be hunting at are hit or misses. As a full disclosure, not everywhere would be a place you may be comfortable with. However, while hunting for seashells, I have found some really beautiful and interesting sims that have landmarked for future visits whether it be for photography, hang outs, dancing, or even yes - more shopping.

Fifth, all prizes are not revealed at the beginning of the hunt. This is incredibly smart, encouraging hunters to keep coming back for more participating even after a day or two of hunting is over. A week into the hunt, prizes were still being unlocked and each one gets better and better since the prize value themselves are increased with every unlocked achievement from gathering collective points. Most hunts last only a day for an individual, whether they complete the hunt all in one go or get bored of it after a while. But this hunt is dynamic and encourages repeated daily hunting through not only individual or team competition, as well as the promise of new prizes that get revealed the more points are gathered.

Things I absolutely loved about the MadPea Summer Hunt

1. The exploration! I forget just how massive and diverse the SL world is. With just this hunt alone, I have visited a vast range of locations from underwater realms to elegant dom/sub safe zones. And though I have only been hunting off and on for a week now (started a few days late), my favorite spot I came across has been a classy decorated Jazz club called The Jazz Den. I've seen a few clubs in my days, even fewer are the jazz clubs, but as a person who loves to listen to some soulful jazz when the mood strikes, I know I will be going to visit this Jazz Club. Nicely decorated interior with plenty of luxury seating and open dance space in front of a live concert stage. Classy bar and outdoor area by the waters for a relaxing time to enjoy the beautiful scenery. I was quite impressed by the overall atmosphere of the club to the fine details of decor that was placed - you can tell this place was built with passion, and it translates well.

2. Community. While going sim to sim, hunting for seashells, you can tell who is participating in the MadPea Summer Hunt even if they aren't wearing the MadPea group tag or sporting their team color's free (and cute) accessories that are available for each team. Everyone I have met have been incredibly nice and supportive, even if they are essentially on different teams. Though each time color is competing against one another, we are still collectively working towards a common goal of collecting more points to unlock more prizes. In that sense, I love the feeling of a supportive and cooperative community the MadPea events seem to carry without fail. Even if you are hunting alone, there is that sense of community still because there is usually always another MadPea hunter at the same place.

3. The prizes and the price. Let's not kid ourselves. $100L for a two-week hunting experience plus awesome, high-quality prizes that can be redeemed for points (some seashells can also reward instant prizes as well!) is unbeatable. I mean, I suppose if it were free like most hunts, that could make it 'beatable' but if you think about all the work that has been put into such a smooth, well-produced MadPea hunt with all these high quality prizes that you will actually want and use, $100L is nothing compared to that.

Things I thought could have made the MadPea Hunt even more amazing

While I loved the concept of the teams, I really wish it could have been taken a step further to encourage more team competitiveness and collaboration. I love co-op games from old school Nintendo Mario to classic League of Legends to modern Rainbow Six Siege, so I would have loved to see something more collaboration come out of the teams. For every sports game, there's a half time break to regroup, inspire, and re-strategize. It would have been amazing for the MadPea Summer Hunt Team Captains to have hosted some sort of official/planned gathering or pep rally half way through the hunt to "rally up the troops", so to speak. This could have been in a form of a pool party/bbq hang out or even a beach party dance. Regardless of the activity, the main idea would have been to allow fellow MadPea Summer Hunters to connect with their team more and be further inspired to contribute more, make new friends, and come out of this hunt experience with so much more than newly discovered land and neat prizes. Note that there was an informal dance-off between two teams to countdown the unlocking of the final prize with a combined team total of 10 million points.

Some Noteworthy/Fun Moments:

LOGO Quinn

Hello my pretties! I am so excited to talk to you about my new LOGO head and what comes with it.  But since that is the bigger part of my post.  I am going to cover the other items first.  First I am wearing new items from Cae.  She has two releases, one of pearls and the other of gems.  These kitten necklaces are awesome.  They also come with earrings too.  As a set and single items.  Main store release and one at Cosmopolitan. These gorgeous pieces come with HUDS that allow you to change the colors and looks of the gems or the pearls, both earrings and necklace.  I am in love with all her items and this new release is one of a kind and a must have.

Next up is Hair Fair 2017.  I was lucky enough to get in a bit early to grab the hairs and yes, I have paid for them all.  I am in love with this messy hair style from Tableau Vivant.  I have purchased the blond pack and I am loving the colors and the fact that the roots are included is great.  Please make sure you try the demo at the Hair Fair.  As a reminder parts of the proceeds will go to WIGS FOR KIDS.  Where you will be helping children that need our donations to help them feel a little joy in their days.  A little comfort to make them better.

Now the BIG release is the LOGO head called Quinn, now I blogged her in my last post, but I wanted to talk about what you can look forward to in the package you get as the basic:
- Head
- Eyes
- Eyelashes
- Teeth
- Shape
- Eyebrow Shaper
- Head Alpha
- Hair Base (optional)
- Makeup/Tattoo Layer (optional but alternatively you can also make copies and wear as many as you want by right-clicking and selecting Add to put it on)

- Lipstick applier
- Eye Shadow applier
- Animation Hud
- Customization Hud

Please make sure when you are working with your head that you work with the shape that came with the package and make your changes from that.  My suggestion is to SAVE often and make sure you make a new save each time.  So you can go back and work from your last save, kinda like a video game ♥

This head is basically all omega and I have found that using the Pink Fuel skin that was used for the Alex head was a perfect fit.  I found that after working on my own personal look for this BENTO head that I made her look like my beloved Alex but in my own spin.  So if you were in love with that look in the past it is achievable to do now!!  Please make sure you test out the demo and check out all your options before you make the purchase.  There are more add on to be purchased at a later date.  I have noticed on Flickr that there is vampire teeth coming soon for this head, so I am uber excited about this.

Like always have fun with your look and create you! ♥

HAPPY 4th OF JULY EVERYONE!!!!  Caleb and I decided to hang out by the pool and beach today! It was so much fun.  We are wearing some newness from events we been at.  First up we wanna mention that HAIR FAIR 2017 is open and we are proud supporters of purchasing hair for donations to be sent to kids that need hair/wigs.  This is for a good cause and been doing it since 2012.  I am supporting Exile in this post.  There are four different hair styles that you can get for the girls and there is one that is perfect for unisex.

For the clothing I am wearing a top from Erratic, I picked this up at a sale she had in the past, so it can be found in the main store.  I am in love with the white color and how the red gemstones show against the the colors and my skin, even better its a perfect patriotic look for red white and blue.   I am pairing that top with the new shorts at FaMESHed from Just Because.  These perfect shorts come in two different styles, you get lace and solid.  And the fat pack comes with extra fabric colors with designs on them.  A total must have in the shorts collection and they pair great with just about anything.

Lastly and I am going to touch on this one in a different more detailed post.  But LOGO has come out with a new head.  This beauty is called Quinn and she is a bento head, like all the other heads out there you can move the bones in the shape and make the look how you want.  I have paired my head with Pink Fuels skin for the non bento Alex head.  The omega applier fit amazingly well and actually gave me the look I really wanted.  This head is an OMEGA user so please make sure you purchase the little hud that goes with for 99L you can find it in the store, it will allow you to use appliers of your choice.  Like always please test out the DEMO before you make a purchase.

That is all for now.  We hope you have a wonderful holiday and be safe everyone! Specially those of you that are setting off the fireworks.

Hair Fair 2017 – Sims, Slurls and Styles

Hair Fair 2017
Hair Fair will open from 0.01am SLT 1st July and close 11.59pm SLT 16th July.
This is the list of Hair Stores participating in Hair Fair 2017. The list is divided by Sim location. Slurls are included but direct teleporting is not available. To use the slurls once at the location of the event, copy slurl to chat then right click and show on Map. This will give you a beacon to navigate towards. We do hope that you visit all the booths at Hair Fair as every creator has done their best to provide their best for this event.
Donation amounts vary throughout the event, but all items do donate a minimum of 15% to Wigs for Kids. There are also Kiosks for direct donations, and Bandana Booths that donate 100% of all purchases.
There are no FEEs to join the Hair Fair Demo Group. There are also no groups to join for any other incentives to the Fair, do not accept group invites while attending the event, we do not spam invitations to anything.
Each Sim is Named a Hair Colour, and each row has a shutter colour. This may help you with navigation and knowing where you left off when visiting the event, or sharing information with others. All logo boards at the front of each store is named with the Hair Store name, if you have hover-tips active in your viewer settings, this will allow you to mouse over boards to see which is which if textures are slower to rez.
Hair Fair 2017
Each sim is divided in half and visibility removed, this means that you will be able to see the sim but not any other avatar on the opposite side. This helps with lag and how much you have to render, so do not panic if you land and cannot find your friends, they are just on the other side of that division. This is also the case at the sim crossings, this helps more so when cam shopping across sims. We have two addition sims for cam shopping, shown in the top left and right of the map.
