“That’s why I will never tame this thing that’s burning in me.”

Fashion For Change is still going strong. The two-week fashion and entertainment event raises funds for Womankind Worldwide as 50% of all proceeds go to the international women’s rights group. Styles by Danielle joins 39 other designers with her exclusive outfit Ivona in Wine.

That's why I will never tame

Ivona is a fitted mesh dress and is a rich wine color with gold accents. An intricate gold headpiece tops the outfit off. Also, it is only available at the FFC sim

this thing that's burning in me

The event runs until April 25th, so only 6 more days to pick up Styles by Danielle’s exclusive Ivona. Need a lift? Click FFC and make a difference while you shop.

Thrill of the Hunt

Easter weekend was a lazy time for me. I left my basket back in Albuquerque, so I decided to celebrate PurpleMoon Creations’ Dress Me Purple II Hunt instead. Tomorrow, April 10, is the last day!

Hunt

Look for the purple egg and find your treat. Did you know purple is often associated with royalty and power? Thus, all the treats are delicious pieces in all shades of purple. Also, they don’t cost one linden. Free can be both stylish and sexy. Here’s a lift to PurpleMoon.

Happy hunting!

P.S.

For last minute hunters, here are the rules:

1- This hunt is free and open to public (no group membership required)
2- The object you are looking for is an egg in purple polka dot texture (like the sample pictured in the poster)
3- To receive the gift, simple TOUCH the egg!. You will be given an object that you can WEAR to UNPACK.
4- The eggs are numbered from 1 to 10.
5- There are no hints given. They are easy to find and this is more for the fun of it than anything else. They are only hidden at the GROUND LEVEL of the Main Store, no outdoors or upper level.
6- The balloons decorating the rooms are an indicator that there are purple eggs hidden in that room.

In like a lamb (lion)

In my personal life, March came in like a lion, so I hope it goes out like a lamb. My boyfriend turned fiancé is having a couple of issues. Truthfully, they are due to me, so I shouldn’t complain. :(

His attitude, much like the weather, affects my moods. However, the beginning of March also brought Designer Showcase‘s newest range of designer goods. Mood back up. :)

Tender age in bloom

Thanksgiving is months away, but for the record, I’m thankful for Spring. While my winters are mild, I’ve always appreciated warm weather wear in real life and Second Life. Also, and I may be in the minority here, but I love the time change even though I lose an hour. I’d much rather have the sun.

There she goes

Dani Plassitz’s March group gift Carla Azure is the perfect combination of sun and Springtime.

Out in the sunshine

There’s a small enrollment fee (200L) to join Styles by Danielle’s group, but all group members receive exclusive monthly gifts (see above :) ), a 30% discount on new releases, and tons of other on the spot group gifts and discounts. Click Styles by Danielle for an in-world lift!

A Turning Point: The Aftermath of Valentine’s Day

Once upon a time, my real life boyfriend used to read my blog posts, albeit on the toilet, so I guarded my words. Nowadays, he’s busy, so I sometimes use my blog as a journal.

A turning point represents a change in a relationship. The change may be good, but it may also mean the end. Happily enough, my turning point does not involve a breakup, but a new challenge. It’s ridiculously easy to fall in love. However, it isn’t always easy to maintain the excitement. New relationships are invigorating. Stable, committed relationships hold the same excitement, but, for me, the anxiety of spending one’s life with one person takes over. Suffice it to say…I got over myself because I almost made the wrong choice. So…how did you spend your Valentine’s Day?

A turning point

Dani Plassitz’s Valentine dress Amora goes beyond February 14. Amora is available in eight shades. The high cut slit and daring bodice combined make this one of the sexiest, yet elegant, designs I’ve come across. Plus, I’m a girly girl, so I’m a sucker for bows.

Don’t let the sun go down on me

I’m so dramatic. Actually, I’m in a great mood! I don’t have many real life tattoos, okay I have four small tatts. The largest is one line of Latin between my shoulder blades. It’s been so long since I’ve seen it, so I can’t remember exactly how it is written, but it’s roughly translated into in darkness, there is light. 

Don't let the sun go down on me

That saying always cheers me up! Shopping cheers me up too. Designer Showcase‘s January round will be gone on the 26th, so if you haven’t been there yet, head on down!

Always Alright

One of the perks of living in Vegas is not the 24-hour booze. The winter weather rocks. I need the sun. The sun’s like instant Prozac, that supplements my prescribed Prozac. Example, my work day was overwhelmingly icky and for a moment, I wanted to flip off a couple of people and take off, but instead, I stood outside and basked in the sun (no worries…my makeup has sunscreen) for awhile. It was the dose of positivity that I needed. Plus, winter wear in Vegas usually means wearing a sweater. Not bad! Dani Plassitz’s newest release Monaco would be perfect in Vegas and for anyone else who’s getting a little tired of heavy winter wear.

Always Alright

The strapless top and pants are sold separately, so you can definitely mix and match or wear as a set. Monaco is available in eight gorgeous colors for you to choose from. It’s happy wear because it’s instant Prozac for Second Life’s winter blues. By the way, I’m also wearing Style by Danielle’s newest heel Lady Mona. I recommend getting Lady Mona Majestic. The hud allows you to mix and match colors so your heels will complement any outfit.

World weary

I have plenty of secrets. I play Covet Fashion at work. If I had to save either my dog or my boyfriend from a burning volcano, I would choose my pups. Come on people…I want my man to save me, so, yes another secret, I am old fashioned. Lastly, I pretend to be optimistic, but my eyes really see half empty glasses and shades of gray. Sometimes maintaining the world me versus the real me is quite the burden.

Feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders too?

I don't believe in everything I see

Dani Plassitz has you, literally, covered ;).

Styles by Danielle is a part of this year’s Peace on Earth Hunt (POE). The grid wide hunt ends on January 6, 2015, so you have plenty of time to find Dani’s gem. It’s a fun, quirky dress for the adventurous fashionista.
