Of Earrings and Hair

transformation ad
pre haircutThis weekend is another fashion show: Transformation. We are modeling the work of Fashion Research Institute Marketplace designer Yoona Mayo, whose brand is Cocoon. One of the fun parts of modeling is the free stuff we get. But I love Yoona’s jewelry so much that I already own several pieces that I BOUGHT. Yep, not freebies. I wish I could bring them into RL, they are so completely to my satisfaction and style. You can read all the details about Yoona’s work on Michele’s blog.

post haircutI will be wearing a gorgeous pearl necklace with matching earrings, Incense. Unfortunately, with my usual hair styles, you can’t really see my earrings. So that meant I needed to find new hair. Except I hate shopping. I hate making decisions. I LIKE my hair. I decided that perhaps a haircut would suffice. 🙂 I put on my hair, took out my editing scissors and began snipping. I removed the tendrils of hair in front of my ears and also trimmed my bangs. almost thereIt’s harder to see in the pictures, but I also trimmed the huge tangle of hair that is pulled back in a pony-tail. When I was finished, I thought it wasn’t half bad, but I thought the earrings still weren’t standing out. I tinted my hair a bit darker (you KNOW I like to be blonde). That didn’t seem to do justice to Yoona’s earrings, so I went darker still. What do you think? LOL – do you recognize me without my hair????

Come and see us all Saturday, November 7, at 7am SLT in Shengri La. Yoona’s jewelry is interesting, intricate and wearable. I know you will find at least one thing, if not more, that you like! this is the oneAnd the models like conversation too!!

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!

  1. I actually think you look amazing as a brunette.

    Yoona’s jewelry is amazingly detailed and very lovely. I own several sets myself. I will be sad to miss this show.

  2. @Chestnut – thank you! Yoona’s jewelry IS fantastic!!

    @Honour – I know you don’t believe it but it’s true – I hate shopping. Ask Oura. 🙂
