Bibbity bobbity.. I am disapproving of you.


Oh hey, did you hear? 

  • Enchantment will be around until the 4th of March! They had a lot of issues with the SM this round so they decided to extend the date, YAY! More time to shop at this beautiful event. Also more time for you all to try their hunt. 
  • For more info on Enchantment visit their Facebook page  HERE - https://www.facebook.com/enchantmentsl/  as there is some site issues with the main website.


  • I did not take this photo but you most likely knew that by the fact there's like a background and props. It was by Savannah Porterfield, my best friend for years now. Some of you may remember Savvy from when she blogged here on Paperdolls. I miss her posts but we can still see them at her blog  HERE - https://lilmonstersmadness.wordpress.com/ Also click on the photo and it will take you to Savvy's Flickr, seriously check her out. She is super talented.
  

Thank you so much Savvy, for asking me to be a part of this shoot. And yes, that dress is much to short for the ball. Godmother disproves! But really, it's totally hot!🔥

 

She isn't impressed

[GA.EG] Barbara Bento Mesh Head Review.


Meet Barbara. The newest Bento mesh head creation from [GA.EG].

So first of all, I was not ready to run out and buy a new Bento mesh head.  The idea of having to reshape myself after all this time was just really daunting. 
That & I'm pretty lazy so the non bento mesh was where I stayed. 

Well that is until This review was passed on to me.
I figured I would give it a try. :)


I think I did okay.
I used the shape provided in the box and tweaked it a bit just to see how the bento head worked with the sliders. 
It was actually kinda fun. I will be playing around with it for a while, I know. 
 I can see my friends now ..."Anyone see Ember?" "Not for 2 weeks, humm. She's been online."
 And there I am, just standing on my platform editing, editing :)


  • If you join their free in world group you get a discount on this head. Group join link is here, just post it into your sl  chat. secondlife:///app/group/1016eace-1ac6-4127-daee-a6c89759f722/about Don't forget to wear your group tag!

Included in the box you will find:
  •   Mesh Head, Mesh ears, Ear shaper, Facial AO, Mesh Teeth, Shape & Smart HUD. You can get this as a group member for 2,660L



If you want a bigger make up selection.
  •  you can buy add on's separately.Make sure you are wearing your Smart HUD & wear the add on HUD. Click the add on and it inserts the make up into your smart HUD. Group members can get add ons for 361L each. There are also other fun add on's like different emotes, gum & teeth.


All in all Barbara was a little bit of an older look than I am used to but very sexy. I can't wait to see more from [GA.EG].


    Pro's
  • Bento - As much as I bang on about being lazy, I did have a lot of fun playing with the sliders to make a more unique look.
  • Price - For the Barbara head package without ad on's, the cost  is 2,800L For group members the cost is 2,660L & there is a lot in the package for this price.
  •  Omega Compatible - The head is fully Omega compatible so you can use your favorite skins etc.
  • Ears - There are Bento & un rigged ears in the package as well as an ear shaper HUD. This is very cool fun little option that I enjoyed customizing.
Cons
  • Lashes - I would love to have the ability to turn off the bottom lash only.
  • Skins - As it is Omega friendly I am not sure many skin designers will create for this head specifically. Not such a huge deal but sometimes Omega coverage just doesn't add up as well as specifically designed for said head. 
  • Neck fit - There are neck blenders in the package but I hope in future releases an actual neck size/ fit button will be added for easier use.
 Hope you found this handy.
 Don't forget to try the Demo!

Spotlight on Hairology



Today's post all about  Hairology
You do know about this event right? RIGHT! 
 Whew, you all had me worried there for a moment.



Q. What is Hairology?
A. Hairology is a monthly event just for Hair! 

Q. What are the Hairology Dates?
A. Hairology runs from the 10th - usually the 30th but darn short February.

Q. How do I get there? 
A. Easy! Just click this link ( http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Waterton%20Way/62/175/2797 ) and it will take you to a teleport map OR Copy and paste it into your SL viewer and you are on your way!

🌟 I am showing off 8 hairs below , Credits for all included below them. Usually I would photograph each shot individually, incorporating it into a look, unfortunately this month is very short and I needed to show you this event before the round ended! Stay tuned for more Hairology posts next month!
 Also, you may not like these on me and that's fine as we all have different tastes but I do urge you to head over and try the Demos!
You can thank me later!🌟

As always, 
happy shopping.
Ember



🠝 [^.^Ayashi^.^] - Urumi 🠝
This is a super cute anime style hair with an add on that wraps around the body slightly. 
Can't wait to try it with my neko look ! 

 🠝 .:EMO-tions..  - Lynette 🠝
Shoulder grazing bob. Sweet & versatile.

  
🠝 ICONIC - Blanca 🠝
I love the length on this hair & the fact that the strands at the shoulders don't seem to cut into my avatar.
I am showing off their materials enabled hair.
 The pack comes with or without. 
See the shine? Turn on Advanced lighting and check it out!


🠝 MINA - Froukje 🠝
I usually like a fuller bang on my hairs but
this one is swaying me with it being side swept & tucked behind my ear.
 
 🠝 No.Match - No_ Tonight 🠝
This colourful beauty is from their unicorn colour pack. 
I haven't spotted that one before and now it's an instant fave! 
I also love the movement they managed to create in the front. 
 
🠝 PINK HUSTLER - 8169 🠝
This is a very sweet style. 
The pony's themselves are nice and full. 
This style comes with or without the pom poms.
 
 🠝 pr!tty - Girdy 🠝
I love how the waves cascade down my back and over my shoulders. 
Also the wisps, as if a light breeze has sprung up. 
 
 

 🠝 Stealthic - Vivacity 🠝
This style reminds me or Marylin Monroe.
I of course opted for a more conservative pink tone to show off.
 No bangs again on this style but this designer manages to make the hairline look natural.
 I dig that.


While I am on a rambling roll. I would like to send out a challenge to designers.  
Create some bang add on's. Could you pretty please?  It's such fun to change up the styles with add on packs.

Designer Spotlight - Wasabi Pills


Spotlight time!

Today's Designer is Wasabi Pills owned by MissAllSunday Lemon & Rouge Darcy. 

 I have shopped this store for years, always finding great new styles.  I just love the shape of their bangs and how the hair frames my face.

Wasabi Pills join in many events around the grid & today I am showing off some of these styles.
 So remember if you LOVE one of these hairs and NEED one of these hairs, take the Slurl limo provided under each photo.

Wasabi Pills also frequently takes part in the Fifty Linden Friday fun, setting out a style in a special colour pack @ 50L! 

Psst, you can find a 50L style Olivia just outside the Main store today!

This adorable style is named Sheryl. She can be found @ The 90's Rewind Event that runs until Feb 28th.
 (Why does this have to be such a short month??? So much shopping, so little time!!!)
 
Opal is a longer style that cascades down the back. ( I tried taking a photo of that but really, I am better with the front shots. Demo's are available but the back is beautiful I swear. ) You can find Opal over @ The Crossroads. This event runs until Feb 28th. 
 
  The style Tara can be found @ FaMESHed
This event runs to Feb 28th.

Disquiet

Good morning, afternoon and or evening!

Today I am showing off something I found really neat by Zibska.

This designer always wow's me with her unique  and seemingly endless supply of creativity.
 When I opened the blogger box for an event called  " SCALA - My Bloody Valentine" Event I got really excited and started thinking on how I could photograph it. 

I decided to wander over and check this event out & It has lots of designers that I've just never stumbled across before.
* Just for that fact along it's worth you taking a peek.

The event is set in what looks to me like an old run down warehouse & Keeping that theme in mind I came up with the photo below.  In my mind it's a girl trapped in a raging inner battle, a messy one at that & Mina's new Ava-Lin hair @ FaMESHed worked perfectly for me with that vision.

Thank you Zibska & Mina for allowing my creative flow
All items have the landmarks embedded in them.
Happy Shopping
 Ember.
