Doing the Rockstar look today. Well maybe not intented to be one, but if I was going to be on stage doing my thing I would so be all about looks like this one – I have also been humming Tex Perkins “Lawyer” for the past two hours so that helped my mood a bit. I love button down dresses, almost as much as button down coats, but I think you get a lot more out of doing something like this with a dress.
Ok so before I forget, Diesel Works is having their annual SALE, which pretty much has everything at 50% off. But it is limited time only, so do not miss out on the bargains, I used Diesel Works poses in today’s post, so they are lots of fun.
Wow aren’t my posts few and far between lately. I was in a slump for a bit, but I got some of my mojo back thankfully. Now I am just busy with the other fine committee members for Hair Fair preparations, but that is not until July 2nd so make sure and mark your calenders for Accessory Fair that starts before that.
Bandana Kit reminder…To be a part of such a wonderful event, that has continued to raise money for charity at every Hair Fair contact Sasy Scarborough or CharitySasy String for your Bandana Kit.
The kits are decorated by you and sent back for us to sell during Hair Fair 2011, and all money made from their sale is added to the final total of Hair Fair 2011’s donation to Wigs for Kids.
This post has been sitting in my drafts since ( Last edited by Sasy Scarborough on March 30, 2010 at 12:33 pm ) and the subject keeps coming up in one way or another. So I finally put all the pieces together and hope it makes sense.
You have decided to open a business in SL and you want to start creating as soon as possible. That is great, but one of the most important things you will need is a name. You may think that you can worry about that later, but as so much is based off the name, and so much has to include the name, it is a good idea to try to start with that as early on as you can.
Naming your store/business :
Coming up with a name is not a joke, you do need to take the name seriously as it is as much of a lure to your customer as your product is.
Do not settle on just one name, as you may find that a change is needed. Make sure that the name is easy to understand in text and voice, that there is no confusion over how it should be spelled when searching for it. Also you need to make sure that it doesn’t sound too closely like another in voice.
Work out in advance an abbreviation of your name, or what customers will break it down into – because we all know that can happen. If the abbreviation of your store name is also way too close to another, don’t go there.
Take your name on the road : By this I mean search everywhere for it – one of my absolute pet peeves are those that use the name of other well established businesses and think it doesn’t matter. It does matter! there are stores I will never give my money, because I cannot bring myself to give it to people who do not respect the hard work of others. I am not the only one that thinks that way, so do as much as you can to ensure you start off on the right foot.
It is that time of the year again. The big call out to all those wanting to help us create some memorable Bandanas for Bandana Day. As usual Bandana Day is held on the last day of Hair Fair, where we remove our hair to show we care. All proceeds from the sale of the bandanas goes to the donation for Wigs for Kids, this years charity of choice for Hair Fair.
All Bandanas are sold for 50L each and only available at Hair Fair 2011, and each one is created by someone you may know. Or this year it could be made by YOU!
For your info and Bandana Kit contact a Hair Fair Committee Member or send a notecard to CharitySasy String and one will be sent to you. The deadline for bandanas is June 12th so get in early and start being creative.

First off a reminder that the Annual Hair Fair Flickr Contest starts tomorrow 23rd May, all the info is here
Ok so now that I finally got around to taking some Bloom pics, I feel inferior in contrast to ones such as these by so many talented people. One day in the future I may be able to take prettier pics of them, because they are truly inspirational. See that is the phenomenon that is the Bloom doll in Second Life at the moment, the desire to take a simple yet adorable avatar and run wild with it.
More than one post in one day, the shock of it all. But then I only realised today that skin/shape expo ends tomorrow so you all need to go back and check it out all over again.
