Choose Your Own Adventure

August 1st, that means faMESHed and I was an eager patron, when the clock struck midnight I headed over to get all the things and it was well worth it!

I was admittedly very excited and anxious for new ENTENTE items for faMESHed.  It is like adding extra whipped cream to a sundae to have the ENTENTE team creating new content for this already superb event.  Needless to say my first stop was to get this perfect new gillet aka tank top and massively detailed boots.  As always the ENTENTE gear has a wide array of textures to add to the base and that sure makes this Cajun one happy buyer.  A great feature that you can find with the faMESHed releases are fatpacks of the textures, very handy and worth the price!

I set out on a little adventure to explore some new places.  I jot down slurls when I read my fellow bloggers posts and peruse flickr, so I can venture out and see the great spots everyone else is discovering.  What are your current favorite sims right now?

It is almost Friday, I hope you have great plans laid out for the weekend and if not, that at the very least it is a nice relaxing time!

Playground Love

The amazing creative force behind What Next has just released this funtastic Playground Roundabout.  I spent a great deal of time on a roundabout as a kid, and later even into high school on cool Summer nights after ice blocking.  Oddly enough it always resulted in the same outcome, I spun myself until I nearly puked and then stumbled around as I laughed at my equilibriums inability to keep up with me spinning my body into chaos.

This great playground roundabout goes great with the What Next Adventure Playground Swingset.  I personally am very excited to have another item to join this great swingset for mon ciel Gabriella and I are planning to have a little one and I’m quite enjoying the preparations!

Check out this great video created by designer Winter Thorn showing the Playground Roundabout in action!

Hair Fair 2013 – eep

Hair Fair is open and well under way!  Spanning multiple sims, you will certainly wish to visit the official website, linked in the Hair Fair image below to find which shops are at which sims.  Or do what I did and walk around all of them!

I am loving this great style from eep!  Finally a very short male mesh timeless style.  Thus far my absolute favorite style, I likely won’t be taking it off anytime soon.  Please note the style does not come with a hairbase but you can get a full pack at the eep mainstore.  Two other male styles can also be found at the mainstore, so well worth the trip!

Hair Fair Preview – Amacci

There’s a place for us
Somewhere a place for us
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us

Hair Fair 2013 opens to the public tomorrow July 13th!  Though I am not an official blogger for the event, I am a 110% supporter of the event and its amazing cause.  For more detailed information on Hair Fair, please click the link in the banner to view the official blog!

Designer Corina Larsen of Amacci generously sent me a copy of her offering for this years Hair Fair.  This male style is called Tom and it is just gorgeous.  With a superbly matched hairbase, I did not have to do any tweaking to the hair whatsoever.  There is absolutely no photoshopping done to the image therefore the hair is unaltered.  It looks amazing doesn’t it?  We fellas don’t get many long styles and one thats pulled back in a nice neat color changeable band, yeah get this item on your to buy list, it is not only very versatile but you are helping out a great cause at the same time.

Be sure to remember that with any large event like this, it is wise to limit your prims and scripts.  I wear a full body alpha layer and nothing more, so I am just a name popping about the event and not contributing to the lag.  You can find one in your system folder, just search full body alpha and it should come up!  Have a great shopping experience at Hair Fair and I’ll likely bump into you there, literally.

Don’t forget the FATEwear sale is going on now, go get the great original mesh items for 50% off!

While perusing my feed reader, I saw this great sim covered by Julliette Bergen at Rebels Without A Blog.  Julliette takes gorgeous photos of so many sims, and for that I am thankful as she not only shows us her talent which is ever growing into amazing, but she informs us of new places to take photos.  Give her blog a look, you won’t be disappointed!
