If people were rain, then I was a drizzle and she was a hurricane

Weather is changing here again and I have to admit, I’ve really missed the rain. I love summer, I really do, but this one has felt VERY long, so I am glad to see some proper autumn weather (and so is the grass!) That’s the beauty of rain – it rejuvenates everything. ♥

Glam Affair is releasing so many cute skins right now, and I want to blog them ALL, but as many as she releases, I could sit here all day every day and just blog skin upon skin – but I am not complaining. ♥ The one I am wearing in the photo is called “Dee” and can be found at Au Lovely. It comes with the usual choices for brow colors, as well as three freckle/mole options (not shown in this photo). ♥

What I am wearing: 

Coat: Belle Epoque { Adley } Black @ mainstore.
Hair: Exile:: Snow Fall (gacha) @ mainstore.
Shape: My own.
New Skin: Glam Affair – Dee (Catwa) @ Au Lovely.
Umbrella: Astralia – September ends Umbrella @ mainstore.

Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees

In just about 2 months, I’ve had my blog for a year – not the flickr, but this actual blog and I really feel like I’ve grown as a photographer and blogger, and really starting to come into myself, to the identity of being a blogger and photographer. It’s been an exciting year of learning, observing and trying various styles, windlights, etc., etc., and I will continue to do so! However, there will be some changes made, starting right now actually!

I am renaming my blog to “Girl Next Door” – this is something, I’ve considered for a while, because I feel it’s more “me” – not to say that I am not still finding introversion to be beautiful – I do. But after a very interesting and great conversation with lots of great feedback with a blogger manager, I decided to go through with it, so from now on the blog address will be https://girlnextdoor.blog/, and I will continue to bring you lots of photos, a bit more writing than I have up till now and of course credits.

Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees

Fall in upon us and it’s time to bring out the sweaters – I’ve found my favorite sweater so far in SL at Collabor88 by Tres Blah. I am IN LOVE with this. 3/4 sleeves, feminine v-neck and thigh length for coziness and warmth. ♥ I will live in this sweater. Combined with these cute jeans from ISON – another of my favorite brands and you have the perfect fall look. Tableau Vivant had a makeover lately, and I am in love with the new styles. In this photo, I’ve chosen a loose, straight forward hairstyle that they just released at Collabor88, and I love how it hangs naturally down the breast and back, as well as draping beautifully over the shoulders. ♥

Hair Fair 2018 - Raffle Promo Poster

Over the years in the lead up to Hair Fair, we ran a photography contest to win prizes and the most coveted early access to Hair Fair. This year we decided to bring everyone back into Second Life itself. The plan is to get people amped up and excited for Hair Fair by visiting different Hair stores all over the grid, and entering the first Hair Fair VIP Early Access Raffle.

To enter is a two-teleport process:

  1. Teleport to one of the stores listed below click the ticket dispenser (as shown) and get a folder containing a ticket a landmark, and info notecard.
  2. Teleport using that landmark, wear the ticket and click the entry terminal. If you happen to get distracted by wonderful hair and items on the way, well that is just more fun for you.

At the end of each Second Life day, we will list two winners on this website and a new draw will commence. You can enter a new draw each day just teleport to a different store, grab a new raffle ticket, wear it, teleport using the landmark and submit your entry at the raffle machine. It is that easy! Just remember you cannot use tickets more than once, and you cannot get a new ticket from a store you previously visited.

If you have any questions please contact Sasy Scarborough.

Each store listed below has a Raffle ticket dispenser visible at that location. (Not all stores participating in Hair Fair are listed due to vacations prior to the event.)
