The Holidays Are Here! And That Means Relay For Life

This year we’re celebrating the 9th Annual SL Christmas Expo, and as always, all proceeds are being donated to the American Cancer Society for use in the fight against childhood cancer.

Alli&Ali is right there with their special offer, Shiki.

It’s an elegant new style, admirably suited for wearing to any one of a number for RFL (Relay For Life) events going on now in SL.

But there’s a catch: it’s only available at the Expo, from December 5th through the 15th. And there are no discounts since 100% of the sales are being donated to RLF.

To find it, go to the 9th Annual SL Christmas Expo’s home page. Once there, click on SHOP THE EXPO and then Shopping Directory:

Where to go

That will bring up links to all the vendors in the Expo. Scroll down until you see Alli&Ali Designs, then click on the link to the right of it. This will take you to the shop, where you can buy Shiki, either in the full set of 256 colors for L$1200, or individual sets of 32 for L$250.

Even if you’re not interested in Shiki, go to the store anyway: there are several other styles and items available and, like Shiki, all proceeds from your purchases go to the RFL and subsequently to the American Cancer Society.

And my personal wish is for you, dear reader, to have a safe and happy holiday season, regardless of your belief system. And if you don’t celebrate the holidays, have a safe and happy season ayway!

CASSIOPEIA: A CORRECTION

Sorry, folks, but I blew it. On my recent review of Cassiopeia I said that only one part of the style was colorable.

I stand corrected.

Here’s what I missed:

See where it says <— Click to switch modes? I completely missed it. There are three settings available: Main Hair: Click on it and it will bring you to All. A final click will take you to Streaks.

Here’s an example, where I colored all three segments differently:

I apologize for the confusion.

Cassiopeia: A Mixed Braid

This week’s special at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore is Cassiopeia, a cute boho-chic braid with endless possibilities.

The basic color is the same for each set, with the color of the braid itself is up to you. The complete set of all colors sells for L$1200, but as always, if you wear your A&A group tag, it’s L$600.

Individual color sets of 16 colors go for L$250, with the group discount of L$125.

Other specials include a free copy in Blackberry Rose, in front of the voting board, Caramel Strawberry at the front desk, and Ash Pearl for L$50 on the Specials Board.

You see the red braid? That’s the part of this style that’s changeable. As always, I’m wearing it in red.

My Verdict?

Cassiopeia is a simple, carefree style will go well with any less-formal fashions, such as a tee-shirt or a camisole

A girl could do no better than wearing Cassiopeia, my style for the next week.

Phoebe: A Classic Look For The Ages

Every once in a while there comes a hairstyle for eternity. Phoebe is one such style:

This week’s special at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore Comes in 16 colors and, as always, has Copy and Mod permissions. Normally L$250, be sure to wear your A&A group tag for the discounted price of L$125. Find it at the New Releases Action Wall.

You can also grab a single color—Coffee—from in front of the Voting Wall.

It’s perfect for any occasion, either formal or informal.

Beautiful curls lend an air of sophistication, but it’s not out of place when paired with jeans and a sweatshirt or a T.

It’s a design I’m proud to add to my regular rotation of hairstyles, and I’m sure it will fit right into your own wardrobe.

A New Friend Who Loves to Travel

Well, here I am again playing catch-up. It’s been a while, but you know how it is: real life sometimes rears its ugly head. Anyway, this is my new friend Eileen Brennan (eileenbrennan in-world). She’s new to SL and hopes to explore all it has to offer, and to write about her adventures for publication.

Eileen in Dress

Her new blog can be found on WordPress. Check it out if you’re interested.


I’ve been pretty bad about updating the blog, and I haven’t checked out any new hair styles lately. But I hope to be all caught up by the middle of the week. Until then,

My New Tattoo!

My newest tattoo comes courtesy of Suicidal Thots and Cinnamon Cocaine, my newest vendor. They don’t have an in-world store yet, but you can find them on the SL Marketplace. Specifically, for this tattoo, right here.

I simply adore the Rose Goddess tattoo. It’s a beautiful design and quite colorful. It comes in four different designs, all variations on a theme.

There are HUDs for Maitreya, Slink, and Bellezza, as well as Omega. Each HUD offers you 4 different designs as well as 3 different layers to wear them on. Best of all, they also allow you to remove them, as well.

Did I mention there are also designs for your upper thighs as well? Sorry, but this girl’s a bit too shy to model them here!

A nice backless outfit sets the design off quite nicely:

It’s a bargain at only $L199! Get yours today!

Lillie is Here, and She’s Lovely!

Just how the wizards at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore manage to come up with new designs just about every week is beyond me, but I’m glad they do. And I’m sure just keeping track of the style names requires a spreadsheet or a database!

That’s the real reason I feature their products, you know: out of sheer admiration. Yes, it’s true: I get the styles for free, but that’s not why I started featuring them. I did it because I honestly believe they have excellent quality products for decent prices. I was buying and using them long before I started reviewing them.

Lillie is no exception. It’s a fun braid with a side ponytail that’s great for the prom, a date, or even a semi-formal dance. Heck, I’m even wearing it right now with jeans and a t-shirt. It’s that flexible.

As always, you can wear your A&A group tag and buy it from the Action Wall; the complete set with all colors can be yours for $L1200, with individual color subsets going for $L250. BUT! There’s a reason for buying it from the Action Wall: wear your group tag and get an instant refund of 50% of the purchase price.

If you’ve already bought Lillie in the past, you can get a free update from the redelivery terminal.

It’s also available as a gift, in Caramel Cream, by the Voting Board.

Lillie: for work, play, and fun! Yours from Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore.
