My Last Blog -- For a While

It's time for me to take new directions in Second Life and other Virtual Worlds.

Blessings and love for all your support!

Embracing the Good Days -- Featuring !Lyrical B!zarre Templates from The Couturier's Docks, Featuring Wicca's Wardrobe, also from The Couturier's Docks, Featuring >Asset< and Featuring {{BSD Design Studio}}

It's hit me, so to speak. There's nothing new to report on my horizon, but it's the time of year when everyone has the sneezles but I'm the one who gets in bed with a fever too. I feel on top of the world, despite the challenge, and so far I also feel like I'm ahead of the curve. It's 23 November, and I've slowed down a minute or two, maybe 3 or 4 blogs a week instead of 7-10, but that's good! 
This time last year, I learned that the pain = cancer and complications and scared and fear and oh my goodness, life was complicated. In comparison, I'm HAPPY and doing well. It's all in the perspective. I know so many friends who struggle this time of year, with loss of loved ones, loss of job, loss of family or loss of health. I feel so passionately about reaching out, touching one another, networking beyond just the business aspect, to the core of each of our hearts, so that beyond the work, we each feel uplifted, remembered, and special.


It's a treat to prepare for the up coming events, and the monthly specials. I have a few items to share with you, and a whole heart to share in the process. First, Lyrical B!zarre Templates has this coat dress, Denara, on sale at 2Lei, I just learned from her that 2Lei was created by a group of people working collaboratively to raise money as well as awareness for the "International Day For the Elimination Of Violence Against Women" and Denara was created so that 100% of the money paid for this goes to support this cause.
The cool beyond blue jeans denim pants, Anakari, come from Wicca's Wardrobe, stylish, chic, and more than just another pair of jeans. BSD Design studio has several new pair of heels out and the ones shown in this style are called Lucky Days Raw Red Silk. Another designer with a plethora of new releases is >Asset<, and Pannan is a casual sleek little short 'do' for you to love. With all the arctic air blasting, even those of us farrrrrrr too far south for the cold air, this outfit felt like it would be just the thing to ward off that wintry assault.

It's Friday!! -- Featuring !Lybra, Chop Zuey and Truth

After a week of ups and downs, it's finally Friday again. Yay! I hope you fill your weekend with fun, family and friends, and always embrace those you love dearly and make sure they know. I recently watched Werner Herzog's From One Second To The Next, a documentary that's only 35 minutes long, but so intense and impacting. It covers the topic of texting while driving and shares several family struggles as they related to the topic. I love Werner Herzog's point of view and had seen several things he created prior to this and knew this would create energy and make a sincere point. It succeeded. It's not one of those things you would rush out to rent, but if you have access to it via Netflix, HULU or Amazon Streaming you should see it and share it.
This morning, I want to show you a beautiful new addition to the collection at Lybra. Such a fashion now style, this gown has the long flourish of a formal gown with the frisky mini showing lots of leg as well. Natalia from Lybra blends the formality of a long gown with the playful nature of a miniskirt. I paired the new gown with the Betty 2.0 Set from Chop Zuey. You'll have options to change the metal as well as the stones in this set, making it multifunctional. I've tried to wear this cute new Truth Sian, a new cut that ended up being a bit more challenging to do because the style is playful, fun, short and somewhat casual. With this outfit, however, I thought it fit perfectly. I loved the hair and just waited for the right time to share.

The Couturier's Dock event displays an array of designers each month, allowing each designer the opportunity to advertise limited quantities of the item they display. This month, Baoba has a lovely bowed hat called Divina.

Whimsical Imaginarium, also on the Salimar Sim, brought home the Sugared Skulls collection from one of the recent events and now you can get it in the main store; La Novia shown in photos above.
The Salimar sim announced recently that their group project - The Couturier's Dock - will be expanding in the next few months, exciting news from an already great program.Vestige Fashion created a set of 10 poses called Female Noir and I've shown two more from the collection in this series.
Have fun with it and enjoy your world! Thank you for being a part of mine.

Bustling Towards the Holidays -- Featuring Wicca's Wardrobe from The Couturier's Docks, Chop Zuey, >Asset<, Lyrical B!zarre Templates and Vestige Fashions from The Instruments

I stopped to take photos today when I popped in online. It's gotten crazy busy this past week, with family and gifting and holidays to plan, and I'm more alert and aware this year than I've been in many years, so I FEEL the busy. I'm excited about it! I feel like I'm thriving because of it instead of crumbling or curling up into a tiny little hide me now ball. I did catch a cold somewhere this past weekend. I don't care for them, but who does. I'd rather get normal colds any old day compared to what I faced this time last year.
So the photos... I put together items from several events, and eagerly begin looking for holiday type looks to share, because I'm in the mood. For this style, I pulled items from Wicca's Wardrobe at this past month's The Couturier's Docks event and know that any day now, new items for TCD will be ready to share. Meanwhile, enjoy the Juliet Bag and Juliet Hat. I've paired Lyrical B!zarre Templates with the items from Wicca's, a new gown called Anne. It's one of those understated gowns that wows with simplicity and beauty. The Romero Britto collection came out this month and will be something easily paired with a whole array of styles and colors because there's a color options HUD included with this great set from Chop Zuey. I don't believe I've had a lot of exposure to products from Vestige Fashion (one of many reasons I lovvvveeeeee event blogging, I get to meet new designers and style new creations all the time) and these poses from The Instruments event were perfect for the look I wanted. I'll share the poses a couple of times so you can see the variety of 10 from this pack called Female Noir. >Asset< released a whole array of new hair styles, and as is their tradition so far, I found that this style called Kitaru would work for either gender. I know it's not as easy to find items for the male population in SL, so any time something has a unisex approach, I'm happy to share.
New events are on the horizon. I'm excited about this year's Peace On Earth Hunt as well as the Jewelry and Accessory Fair (2). I had such a great time with the one from last year, that I cannot wait for them to begin. Both come in December, but I'm already chomping at the bit! See you soon. <3

Chop Zuey Girl Live Contest Day 1 -- Featuring Nya's Shop

It was a lot of fun to put together this outfit last night. I was preparing to work at Chop Zuey but even more so, I wanted to wear something new and awesome to the Chop Zuey Girl first live contest this morning.
I pulled together a dress from Nya's Shop called Happy Dress Sangria, sold at this month's rotation for The Instruments The event. I just bought the hair as well, new from Truth Hair called Aida.
My heart beats a little faster when I try to find pieces from Chop Zuey, play with them to repurpose, relocate or use as a different type of jewelry, and in this case, I took a set of bracelets and used one as a choker.

Tiny Footprints -- Featuring !Lybra and Dulce Secrets From Tiny Footprints Charity Event

Tiny Footprints is a new idea to me but so wonderfully special. This week, this charity has items for sale that help raise funds to support the charity. For families who lose children at a very young age, Tiny Footprints works to connect those families with skilled photographers who will take a special memories photograph to commemorate their young child's life. You can read more about the organization and what they stand for and do, and donate directly here: http://www.thetinyfootprintsproject.com/ 
I have on a gown that's designed by Lybra called Dementia. This purchase goes 100% to the charity, and is a beautiful vintage clothing style. I also picked up the array of makeup from Dulce Secrets called Over the Rainbow, also set to donate 100% of the proceeds to this charity.
You can find designers from all different points of view at this event. I hope you have time to go by and see. You can find this in SL at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondli…/Oracle%20Sparc/…/207/37
