The Secret Affair will be opening up for yet another round of fantastical goodies on September 14th focusing on all things golden and glitzy.  You’re sure to find anything from urban glam to heavenly gilded gorgeousness.  The event will only be around for 2 short weeks so hurry on over to see what rich treasures await you.

In addition, I want to take this time to mention another very special event going on right now thru September 20th called “The Book of Daniel” that is in dedication to our very own Daniel Estro of Zerkalo.  This past year Daniel has been battling a type of brain cancer.  Needless to say, dealing with such an illness has halted his ability to continue his livelihood thru Second Life at this time…not to mention the enormous financial burden this has put on his family.

This is a fundraising event put together by Neva Xenga of Shiny Shabby and owner of the Neva River Sims, also a very close friend to Daniel and his family.  In collaboration with numerous designers/creators from around the grid to give of themselves so generously in hopes to raise money and offer support to help Daniel and his RL/SL wife & business partner, Anais Terpellie, in their time of need.  Please consider shopping this event and know that in doing so you are helping someone else just like you, who is a part of this wonderful community of Second Life.

To read more about Daniel’s Story and about the event see Neva’s page here.

{ Follow Me Into the Jungle } NEW from GizzA & Uber

I lost my mind, in the city of lights
In the backstreets buildings and the neon lights
When I heard the thunder, I could feel the rain
It’s the same to me, just a different name.

Oh Lord
I said oh Lord

Won’t you follow me into the jungle
Ain’t no god on my streets in the heart of the jungle
Won’t you follow me into the jungle

{ Streaking in the Dark } Alice Project

Alice-full

I have a confession… I am a Second Life hair addict.  But wait, there’s more… I *hesitates* have never really tried Alice Project Hair until just recently. *gasps*  I know I know… It’s not like Alice hasn’t been making fabulous hair for quite a while now.  But well you see, I don’t think I knew what I was doing to be honest.  The whole Create Your Own (CYO) hair seemed a bit over my head, no pun intended.  (Yes, I’m blonde in rl)  But having taken some time to really look at it, it was never really that hard at all and I am so glad I did because, WOW.  The options and cool things you can do with this hair are really quite amazing.

The hair I am wearing is called Kiera.  When you purchase any hair from Alice Project it does come with a mini-pack Color HUD for you to get started with.  From there you can purchase additional color HUDs with different options from natural to extremes, dipped, streaks, glitter and so much more.  First choose a color pack, and then which color and shade you want which shows on the right column of the HUD.  Once you have decided on a base color for your hair, which for me was a brown dipped black tone, select APPLY on the HUD.  This will permanently dye the hair to that color now.

HUD

You can then choose what areas of the hair you’d like to highlight.  At the bottom of the HUD you see PARTS: ALL 1 2 3 and 4.  Not all hairs have the same number of parts to change up, for instance, my hair only had one part that you could streak with an additional color at the front.  Select a part and start trying out colors, this is something you can change as often as you’d like.  I chose a teal color from the Extremes Color pack to match with my sexy little dress from DRIFT.  If you don’t happen to like the color on the HUD you currently have on, you can switch to any other HUDs you own, or buy a new one and use that to streak your hair.

(PLEASE NOTE: You must “apply” the base color you want BEFORE trying to streak the hair parts to any colors, otherwise when you try to streak a part, it will just change the whole hair to that color).

Alice-close

There is hardly a limit to your creativity with Alice Project.  It’s a veritable playground of color choices, so play and have fun with your hair!
