Spring’s just around the corner (at least in my neck of the woods)

It finally rained in Las Vegas, and my boyfriend found out his windshield wipers didn’t work. What a way to find out huh? Daylight savings time is…next week…I think, and I’m ready for it. I know we lose an hour, but we have extra sunlight. I only like the rain in SL, or when I’m tucked away in bed watching a marathon session of Breaking Bad, Weeds, or House of Cards (not much of a marathon for this show).

Incidentally, Prism Design’s Felicity Early Spring Coat in First Flowers screams springtime and soon to come April showers.

Spring Showers

It also comes with the boots, so feel free to splish and splash in any puddle that comes your way. Now stomping in puddles is something I do like because it’s such a rarity for me. Been there done that? Awww…okay. In that case, hope you all are enjoying the weather wherever you may be! ;)

Bullying Stops Here

Pink Shirt Day started on February 26. Have you raised your voice? I don’t know about you, but I was semi bullied by my next door neighbor when I was 7-12 years old. Luckily, she didn’t torment me as maliciously as some kids do nowadays, but she was definitely intimidating because she would walk behind me, with her friend, and make all kinds of remarks.

Picture this. In real life, I’m super short, and I’ve worn glasses since I was five year old. I was like a walking cliche of the perfect kid to pick on. Luckily, and it’s a strange lucky, my family didn’t have a home computer until I was in high school. Because now social media allows teens to target and bully from afar, and with that convenience comes double the impact to cause harm.

If you want to show your support against bullying, stop by PurpleMoon and make a donation in exchange for a shirt.

February Stars

While I can appreciate the day after Valentine’s day (discounted chocolate), I’ve never been a fan of February. It’s just so short! 

Image

By the way, Designer’s Showcase’s February collection is about to make its exit, so if you haven’t had a chance to stop by….why not drop in? All designers feature items for 100L or less so you may find a treat or two or three or ten.

Designer Showcase’s February round is still alive and well. Have you had a chance to pop on over?  Glitter’s Lord Mesh is a partial mesh ensemble. My avi is one of those super tall avatars*, so it may just be me, but the alpha took away my tummy. I’m half machine, so it kind of works ;)

Designer Showcase in Second Life

Designer Showcase is still kicking, but I’m about to drop! Just remember that it’s never too late or too early to shop.

Just a minute

You know how some people say “in a New York minute?” I would never make it. Lately, I run on two speeds and that’s slow and stop. Case in point, Sascha’s New York ensemble is new, but not as new as it was since I got it. The mesh jacket comes in two version: one has a fur collar and the other does not. Also, New York has a nice set of system pants to go with it, but I paired the jacket with another one of Sascha’s pieces (Iggy pants) because I love their textures together.

In a New York minute

Make the most out of your time, and see what’s new at Sascha’s Designs! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend.

“ignite the sky and let it shine”

I can’t wait for 2014! I always get soooo excited about the new year because I think out with the old and in with the new. Course, a few days after the new year, I get awfully moody because I tend to break my new year’s resolutions by January 2nd.

What are your plans for the new year? Celebrate it in style with PurpleMoon, this year’s Avi’s Choice for favorite female fashion designer. A little bit of sparkle goes a long way, and PurpleMoon’s Dresha top comes with quite a few sequin tones via the color change hud.

Image

In fact, the Dresha blazer and pants are color or pattern changeable using huds too. Okay, over and out.  It’s my first Las Vegas New Year’s celebration, so I’m going to ring in the new year under the fireworks. See you in 2014!

Have a safe and happy new year’s celebration!

And may the odds be ever in your favor…

Yes, I saw Catching Fire! It inspired me to recreate my own Arcade Games. As an Arcade addict, I can get pretty mean when I want something. It costs too….but so much fun!

Winter Morning

I’m such a sucker for plaid! Prism Designs’ Yesi in Winter Morning is a lovely soft pink shade. It’s very girly girl if you are so inclined. It also comes with the shoes and the thigh high leg warmers. It’s a mix and mash item because all pieces can be worn separately.
