A Day At The Beach

I’m fortunate enough to live about 20 mins away from the beach. I don’t visit it as much as I would like to, and I have no excuses really, but every time I go I just feel at home. You could put me in a shack and as long as I could see the ocean from it, I would be happy.  Unfortunately even shacks on the beach are out of my price range but luckily in SL for just pennies a day I can get a great view of the ocean from my very own trailer park.

Cherry Cool Aid

I have some friends who lived in Okinawa  a few years ago and they always posted the most beautiful pictures. I will probably never have the pleasure of visiting there myself ,but that doesn’t mean I can’t pretend to visit there in SL. I was busy exploring profiles and tping to different shops I’d never heard of, in this case mostly Japanese stores, last night; I ended up running into the Okinawa Festival.  I was thrilled. So many cute clothes, and gachas and lucky boards. All a dork like me could hope for! Here are some goodies I got.

My Favorite Hair Fair Bandanas (plus a few I made)

Once a year, us non-creators are challenged to toss our bandanas in the ring along with other creators such as Lelutka, TuttiFruti, MiaMai and others. For me, it’s always a fresh reminder of why I am not a creator, but I manage to pull something out my hat (or bandana).

It’s Bandana Day – Take Off Your Hair

It’s Bandana Day 2014, the day we take off our hair in support of those for whom having hair isn’t an option due to illness.

You’ll hear people say us doing this doesn’t make a difference. I get their point. We’re not curing anything, we’re not solving anything.

What are doing it for then? Why do we do it then?

It’s a gesture of solidarity. It’s a gesture of support, of respect.  We’re saying “We’re with you.” This is how we show our solidarity and our empathy.

An example of why/how gestures matter.

I have a good friend at work and she’s going through some tough times. She’s Cuban and we’ve shared some cafe con leches over the years while we visited. I went in early the other day and stopped by the bakery, I took her a guava pastry and a cafe con leche. When I brought it to her I said “It looked yesterday like you could use a treat today.”

She hugged me and cried.

Did I fix her problems? Nope. Did I make it all better? Nope.

But I made a small gesture, to say I cared, and I was thinking of her. And it matter TO HER.

You can still get your Bandana at Hair Fair and 100% of the proceeds benefits Wigs for Kids. They are all dontated by SL residents, creators and bloggers and just regular folk like us.  I hope we light up the feeds today – with a lack of hair.

 

Early AM At Flo’s Trailer Park Jamboree

Everyone else is still snoring in their campers but I’m up early because there is so much going on! Hair Fair still goes until tomorrow and I’ve forgotten to go pick up the dollarbie Kavar from EXILE put out. It’s sort of a silly rainbow hair and I have to have it.

There is still time to pick up this gorgeous ‘do from Wasabi Pills also, in fact Hair Fair several years ago was where I first became acquainted with Wasabi Pills. I fell in love then and have been delighted as time has pass at what an amazing and versatile creator she’s become.  Who will you fall in love with at the Hair Fair this year? Continue reading

Zaara Is Always Beautiful

140722_004

I dropped by Zaara to pick up some shoes she had out for the 21 Shoe event on the 21st and, of course, ended up buying so much more. That’s how these events are supposed to work, so I can’t complain.  The highlight for me was this Runa knotted dress. I wore while DJ’ing on Monday night and folks actually teleported to Zaara picked up the dress and came back to the club wearing it.  That’s how gorgeous it is.

It’s Friday Eve

It’s Friday Eve and that means it’s time for me to start thinking about heading over to my trailer park weekend home. I’m just raiding the cabinets for some snacks to take along.

Plus I need to go shopping. I always need to go shopping though.

Happy Friday Eve girls!
