Taking control of the sun

What’s on your mind? I’ve had a lot on my mind lately! My thoughts cost a bit more than a penny, but that’s only because I have a headache. Work can be rough!

Styles by Danielle offered Penny in Aqua at this week’s 24 Squared event, and sadly, the event is about to end, but Penny is a sweet little dress. In fact, only 150 copies were available, so it may be gone.

Floral prints make me happy. Probably not as happy as Prozac, but when the day grows long, I need any type of pick up I can get!

Penny for your thoughts

Penny’s strapless style is wonderful for the last remnants of summer. Remember, you have control of SL’s sun, so you can let it shine all day long.

I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame

Okay, I can’t really trade my first or second life for fortune and fame (both combined are not worth that much), but there are some aspects of both that I would love to give away.  As for Second Life, I don’t like mass teleports or intrusive hellos from male avatars. Is that super mean?

As for real life, I could totally give away my mood swings. I would have to give that away because it would be an awful trade!

Second Life is a sanctuary to me, and not necessarily in the religious or spiritual sense. It’s my time to get away from real life and dress up my virtual Barbie doll.

Scarlett PM close

The last time I wore a gown in real life was my senior prom, so I’ve led myself to believe I’m a jeans and flip flop girl, but I never really had the opportunity to dress up. If I did (and I was at least 5 inches taller), I would totally wear a dress like PurpleMoon’s Miss Scarlett. Miss Scarlett is available in 8 colors, and I’m in love with this shade of blue.

PurpleMoon

Incidentally, the sale ends today, but Miss Scarlett in Gold is half off! Regardless of what color you choose, Lazuri’s Marzia complements Miss Scarlett perfectly. The combination reminds me of old Hollywood glamour. I was never there in body, but certainly in spirit. Hollywood is the ultimate in fame and fortune right?

Rocking my rack

Are you a supporter or a shopper? Why not be both? Rock your Rack is officially open and it runs until September 15. Styles by Danielle is participating in this massive event with an exclusive item. If you purchase Charlotte in pink, all proceeds go entirely to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Rock your Rack 2014

Charlotte is available in other colors at Danielle’s main store, but Charlotte in Pink is only at the fundraiser. The outfit comes with a hud, so you’re able to make small changes, such as removing the flower, adding pink trim to the skirt, and opting for a solid colored jacket.

Ultimately, the more we know about a disease, the more we can do to prevent it or treat it. Breast cancer is no exception, so show your dedication and rock your rack.

Once upon a time…

I wonder if Style by Danielle’s outfit Lisa shares my middle name. My real name is Lisa, or formerly, it is Alisa, so technically I am a Lisa. My middle name is Marie, and I always wondered about my mom and dad’s reasoning, but almost every Lisa I have met has had the same middle name.

Hey Elvis? You really do live on through your daughter! It inspired my parents and many others. :D

Lisa by Danielle

Lisa, the outfit,  has the distinctive Danielle flair, and you can wear each piece separately or together as I did. Danielle’s Taj Majestic jewelry completes the look, but no fears because you can change the gems and metals via hud too.

Styles by Danielle Lisa

Lisa comes in other colors, but if you select the white version, it comes with a hud so you can select to turn on or turn off full bright. I love you Lisa. That may have been my subconscious talking, but you gotta love a Lisa…right? ;)

“Maybe I’m the one who is the schizophrenic psycho”

I spend a lot of my real life time wondering what is wrong with people, but maybe it really is me.

Designer Showcase August Round

I woke up on the bad hair side of the bed today. I was craving French fries smothered in cheese. As I was starving, my first plan was to buy a few groceries or at the very least hit up McDonald’s.

I'm seeing you talk, but I can only think about French fries

Instead, I drove across town and bought…mosturizer.

I’m coming home

I’ve been in my hometown all week long! Flying back to my new home, Las Vegas, Nevada, is surreal because I’ve only been there for 8 months, but it actually feels like home for the first time. I miss my bed, my boyfriend, and refrigerated air, not necessarily in that order, but you know…

Second Life Designer Showcase Elemental Jewelry

Now, when I say home, I don’t mean my home. Las Vegas is merely where I hang my hat, but like my dad told me, I have to make the best out of new experiences and embrace every moment.

Starting now.

“Like a breeze through the trees you can watch me [go]“

I’m flying home (Albuquerque) in 10 days. I’m so excited! The only thing I’m worried about is taking my pups with me. He’s a chihuahua, so I’m taking advantage of his small size and opting to take him in lieu of my carry-on bag. I’ve never flown with an animal before, so I’m really hoping it will be smooth sailing, er flying. I would leave him in Vegas, but my boyfriend works close to 10 hours a day. Okay, honestly? Secretly, I wonder if I love my dog more than my boyfriend. Yikes! Sorry, my love.

Have you checked out Styles by Danielle lately? Dani’s newest release Chloe is rigged mesh and its asymmetrical ruffled hem adds a bit of sass. It has a wonderful texture!

Chloe comes in other gorgeous colors and for all group members, Dani’s group gift is Chloe in vibrant green.

Celebrating Independence Day

Happy Fourth of July! Since my boyfriend is working tonight, I took this holiday literally, and I spent quality time with me.

Appreciate the present

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately, so I put all of my negative emotions to the side and thought about life from a new perspective.

Giovanna Cerise and Daco Monday have created  "Thought ... Birth .... Existence"

Often, when I am moody, I’m thinking of what I did wrong. I hardly ever think about what I did right.

iluzora: "Where the beauty of chaos reigns over ugly perfection. fairy-tale, myth, dreams and nightmares entwine to create one vision."

iluzora: Where the beauty of chaos reigns over ugly perfection. fairy-tale, myth, dreams and nightmares entwine to create one vision.

I’ve probably said this a million times, but sometimes our minds are dangerous territories, and as many therapists have claimed, we should not travel alone. However, it isn’t so bad when we can see the positive lurking in the corners or staring right at us.

I’m so preachy today! By the way, I took my photos over at the SL Community Celebration sims. Click the links above to check out two of the builds! It’s your last chance really. It all goes away July 5th and we’ll have to wait until next year’s celebration. Hope your fourth of July was a blast!

“With the blink of an eye, [I] finally see the light…”

The scent of honeysuckles reminds me of home. If you didn’t know, honeysuckles grow as a vine. Or maybe a certain variety does? I don’t have a green thumb. :/ However, I recall them climbing my childhood home.  I’ll be back in Albuquerque in a couple of weeks. I haven’t been home since November 2013, and maybe that isn’t too long for some, but what can I say, I’m a hometown girl and away from my roots as I work in Sin City (aka Las Vegas). Prism Designs‘ Lua in Honeysuckle reminded me of home if only for the color’s name.

It's amazing when you finally see the light

Honestly, I’m flying back home because doctors believe my dad may have Parkinson’s Disease. I just realized this now, but Prism Designs actually has a limited edition dress and half of its proceeds will go towards research for Parkinson’s Disease.  Incidentally, it is not a limited edition version of what I am wearing in the picture. I just forget to copy my SLurls, so I hit up blogs to find them. Subsequently, I found out Prisms Designs supported the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

That’s just so cool. I had to mention.  I also saw the light. I don’t necessarily need a reason to go home. There is no shame in adults missing their moms and dads!

In darkness, there is light

How do you picture the future of SL?  If you say sky high buildings and high heel wedges, we are on the same page!

In honor of SL11B, johannes1977 reveals the Tribute City-Black Eagle Rock Club always moves and never stops. While the events are done, all of the sims are open for your viewing pleasure, so check out what may be Second Life’s future.  At dusk, the tall, moving buildings have an ethereal glow.

In crisp daylight, the build offers a magnetic background for pictures. Really, it was almost mesmerizing to watch the buildings rotate.

Second Life 11 Birthday Celebration

If you need a little relaxation, I highly recommend you visit it. The sims close on July 5th, so you have plenty of time!

Now about my sky high wedges, if you are looking for a traditional pair, Styles by Danielle’s mesh Vista Wedges come in rigged and non-rigged versions. The HUD gives you 8 skin bases, with a color mixture, 3 platform textures, 15 nail textures, and the choice of gold or silver metal. You also have 11 colors to choose from. I am embracing the season before Labor Day and running around in the white version.
