Sometimes I Wonder - Featuring Fashion For Life: Prism and Deluxe Body Factory, Featuring October's 4Seasons Skin Fair 2016, Featuring NEW Chop Zuey

I read this week that Justin Bieber wore a shirt that said, "Bigger Than Satan" on the back and I just had to wonder. Even if you're someone who doesn't believe in anything except self, wouldn't you consider wearing something like that to be stirring some sort of energy and isn't the potential that you're stirring not so great energy in your teapot?
I have a very open mind when it comes to faith. It's a very personal thing for me, so I respect your right to your personal choices too. Even those choices that make me wonder. His choice to wear such a shirt, well it's his right to express himself. I've always been the type of person that thought positive energy translates to encouraging others. I just don't know how someone could do that when they were deliberately poking at the darker energy of this world. I imagine there are a kajillion things I don't understand. That's just one of them. Hmmm...

In my own little way, my positive energy gets stirred every time I come here to share something. It may be 'only' a video game but in this video game, I've seen lives changed, hearts mended, and souls soaring. I've seen people with little self esteem able to spread their wings and fly. I've seen something as serious as the fight for the cure and the American Cancer Society, Relay For Life and the in world Fashion For Life crew sponsor an event year after year that raises real money, real awareness and makes a real difference. YOU can get involved in this special event right NOW. Visit the Fashion For Life event and donate, shop, share. I'm also always quick to support friends and friendship and in so much as I can hopefully make a small difference, I happily and proudly wear ONLY October's 4Seasons skins. The one I'm sporting for this set of photos is from Skin Fair 2016, Catalina in the Papavar tone. It's the Natural skin with Dark Brown brows. It's a perfect tapestry for makeup layers like the one I chose from the Fashion For Life event. And no outfit would be complete without great jewelry. I can always and ever find something new and fun at Chop Zuey like the Love Knot earrings. I'm just one little me in a world of people doing whatever they do. I hope that the little that I do makes a warm and wonderful difference in a life today. Pass it on!

Raw Photos Show Just How Good October's 4Seasons NEW Catalina Really IS @ Skin Fair 2016

There are any number of reasons to touch up photos for my blog, to get the lighting just right, to make it just that much sharper, more colorful or in some way enhance the overall artistry of the photo. Sometimes little gaps occur between a SLink attachment and the original SL body and it's not so 'pretty'. It just is what it is. In this way, however, you can see how incredibly talented the skin designer October Recreant is as she creates each new skin. Drop by this year's Skin Fair 2016 and DEMO a skin tone you love and get the new Catalina today. I think she's a spicy bit of fun that beckons everyone.

Fun and Fashion For A Great Cause - Featuring NEW Fashion For Life: Baboom, Glint & alskametro; Featuring NEW Skin Fair October's 4Seasons

October's 4Seasons kicks off Skin Fair 2016 today, just in time for fun this weekend. My favorite skin designer so talented and capable and maker of stunning skins takes the helm this year as primary sponsor, collaborating to bring you the best skin fair ever. This natural skin tone shown today is one of many reasons I love October's 4Seasons. I can wear it and then layer other tattoos, makeups or anything else creative I might find along my SL journey. In my Catalina Lily Skin package, I have five makeup choices, this natural skin, some cleavage options, eyebrow color choices, and trim choices for that other delicate hair that some find so enticing.
With the natural skin layer, I was able to add new items from the Fashion For Life event that's continuing this weekend. alaskametro created both the Extreme Wing II shadow and the Nadia lipstick as part of their support for the charity event designed to help raise money for the cure for cancer. I'm also modeling the new Linette Peplum Top in Black and Mira Leather Pants in Grey from Baboom and .:Glint:.'s Multi Colored Oval Charm Earrings and the Unisex Time To Heal Necklace, each items created to support this fashionable fun charity event. Fashion For Life is a branch of the Relay For Life annual drive. By shopping with Fashion For Life, you're supporting an urgent international event that will touch many lives in so many positive ways.

Just Around the Corner - The Skin Fair Is Coming - Featuring NEW October's 4Seasons @ Skin Fair; Featuring NEW [SWANK] !CST Designs, Moondance Boutique & {Ana Markova}

I'm excited to share news with you about the 2016 Skin Fair. In just three short days, you'll find so many new skins and makeup and other accessories from designers all around the grid. This year, aside from making some amazing new products exclusive to this event, October's 4Seasons sponsors the whole thing. Catalina is the new beauty showcased in the event and the skin I'm modeling here Catalina Lily is one of the many options you'll find.
A new round of [SWANK] tantalizes the most diverse interests with items like the new heels from !CST Designs, the black pumps with a bow. Also I'm wearing a new pants suit called Solstice Abstract from {Ana Markova} and new earrings and bracelet from Moondance Boutique. This month's theme "Luck Of the Irish" brings out the best in every designer participating in the event.

**Special note** The designer behind Moondance Boutique expects a new bundle of beauty, a baby girl. She's experiencing some of life's more difficult moments and I encourage you to help in some small way. It's very difficult to have to choose between health and a pay check. Moondance Boutique and Kathrin Dassin always thanks every person who supports the adventure, but ever more so as she prepares for the new arrival in her world. Thank you for being a special part of her world.
