Belleza’s EMILY at The Arcade this time around is a perfect pick up because with five brow options included (the fifth being no brow, so you can customize with your own) any one can wear this skin, regardless of your avatar’s favorite hair color. Continue reading →
I have been thinking about moving, downsizing from my lovely, but large, 5th Avenue townhouse and have been on the lookout for something marvelous. I think I found it at Collabor88 this month. I mean look at that red door! We need more red doors in our lives.
This month’s Collabor88 is inspired by the Odyssey and I am loving the many interpretations that designers are coming up with. I am fondest of those that are less literal – like this mini-dress from Tres Blah. It was a bit short for my taste so I added some leggings from Maitreya to avoid flashing my hoo-hah around.
So this carriage house from Trompe Loeil appeals to me as a new home. The only problem is that I will have to move. I hate moving – not as much in SL as in RL – but I still like to stay in one spot. However, I am pretty sure I will sign a lease on this place and move in shortly. I love carriage house apartments. When I was in college, I had a friend who rented a carriage house. It was gorgeous inside and the rent was reasonable, best of all, though, it was on an estate – so there were these magnificent grounds that he was able to use – so long as he scheduled with the owners. Lucky guy!
I home with the plague, but before I became ill pixel Gidge was trying out some new goodies she thinks you’ll like. If you haven’t been to COLLABOR88 yet, it’s time to go! This dress from Teefy is so cute, it was hard to pick which color! Continue reading →
I jumped into the ocean this morning to see how deep I could go. You can imagine my surprise when no matter how deep I went, the ocean continued to welcome me. I eventually swam down so deep, I met it’s King, who welcomed me with open arms. Continue reading →
Luxuria has put out this amazing item for FLF and the stockings have mesh appliers for whatever mesh body thing you’ve got on. That’s a great pick up for 50L. The stockings come in nude or white but I decided nude was the way to go today. Continue reading →
I just put in a new nautical themed bar thanks to Cheeky Pea’s new release for The Neighborhood. It comes stocked with beverages, so I’m ready to face my Monday with a sense of calm and relaxation. Thank you Cheeky Pea. Continue reading →
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.
