Hot and humid days can be fun

Have you ever been outside when it’s hot and humid outside? It can be pretty down right disgusting – you can cut the humidity with a knife sometimes. And I have noticed for the past several years, places of business have cut down on the amount of air conditioning that they use. Even on mass transportation they have cut down, which to me is not a good idea when hundreds of people use it daily.

 


I decided to head down to Ghee because they have a new VIP gift out. Since it was nice (and humid) outside, I decided to take a picture near the fountain that is located near the store. Then, I felt some wetness on my arm. Don’t tell me it’s about to rain….and I don’t have an umbrella :(
The rain did provide some relief to the heat, but I still wasn’t satisfied. Figuring that I would be wet anyway, I decided to stick arms and face into the water. Don’t worry about me – Bea and Warm assured me that the water is clean…I won’t drink from it just in case *winks*

 


Ghee has a few older group gifts at the store. Last time they had a group gift, I wore this lovely dress out to the beach. So you may want to stop by just in case you missed out on some of the gifts ^^

Hair Fair 2015 – My Picks

Hey guys! There are only two more days before the end of Hair Fair. Have you gone yet….twice…three times? It took me a while to decide what to get, and I told myself that I would only go there once to purchase everything. I’m not sure if that was such a good idea…I totally got a hair hangover afterwards (yes, headache and all lol).

So even though you will see other hairs I got from Hair Fair 2015, I wanted to
highlight these as well. I took these pictures at my friend’s studio, so that was a nice change of pace ^^

1. elikatira – Rayne

Loved the side playful ponytail on this hair.

2. Exile – Walking On Sunshine

This would take a bit to add this many curls to the end of the hair.

3. Vanity Hair – Never Wanted U

Nice take on a bob, would look great with highlights as well.

4. LeLutka – Dakota

Sexy tousled hair is always a plus!

5. Exile – Future Outcasts

This hair reminded me of Kelly Kapowski for some reason.

6. elikatira –  Brooklyn

Because Brooklyn…duh!

7. Analog Dog – sassafras

I am absolutely in LOVE with these curls!

Are you in the Mix?

Hey guys! Are you in the Mix? If not, you should check out this new monthly event. The first round started on July 1st, but since we are about mid-month now, I thought I would remind (or inform) you about an event that brings traffic back to mainstores.


Hair: Besom~Petal (Mix item)
Hat: Ghee Summer Hat (old fair gift)
Skin:Glam Affair – Alice – SummerParty – Jamaica 01 
Eyes: IKON Promise Eyes  – Nymph
Necklace:  {Indyra} Alexandria Necklace
Outfit: GizzA – Meimei Dress [Floral] 
Bag: *{Junbug}* Cute Coin Purse Blue (recolored)
Shoes: {Livalle} Ganymede -Slingback Wedges (pink)

Mix has a hud that will help you go from store to store, and it also tells you who is participating at a glance. You can get the hud from marketplace, or maybe you have received one already from a participating store.

As you can see, there are three categories – Sale, New, and Exclusive. Besom has come out with this new hair this month called Petal, and it is available now at the store. Make sure you make a note of the sale and exclusive items, for the item itself may not be there at all at the end of the month.

One critique I have heard about the hud is that it has many scripts and takes up significant memory at “87 scripts. 5.56MB memory.” I can confirm the 87 scripts, and it dropped my FPS from 75 to 13. It made my friend crash repeatedly. So to play it safe, I would just go to Eloquence or Seraphim and grab the links from there. The coordinators for this event should look into this, for this is a significant issue.

The great thing about this event is that hopefully it will show designers that they should create for their main stores as well as numerous events. Sometimes the instant gratification of earning a quick Linden is a strong pull, but what happens if events shut down? Or, if you want to have a sale at your store, but haven’t gotten around to setting out old event items? Even if the demand is not there at the stores at this time,  you should always take care of your homebase because you own it.

So, are YOU in the Mix? You still have time ! ^^
