Earth Day 2013

We spent Earth Day in the beautiful mountains and then came home and celebrated with our Second Life friends and Pre-Release!!! I found this poem while on a wooded trail and wanted to share it here. Hope you had a great Earth Day!

Earth Day

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.

It’s a Mad World….

Braided Courage

Gopu and I were checking out the super cool monochromatic NV Madworld sim art and I snapped some pictures as we played on the dangerous boxes and teased the black crow in the shop. Ah… now that is living on the edge! We will definitely be returning to take photos outside in the surreal landscape. Fantastic white grass, floating bubbles, drops of suspended water and dark abstract art. Swing by and check it out if you haven’t it is a great place for a photo shoot.

This Pre-Release round’s theme is Designers Choice and there is a virtual smorgasbord of designs awaiting your lindens! Every item at Pre-Release is 125L or less … more bang for your buck! I adore this tied top and skirt outfit from FireBird Designs! The skull on the mesh shirt stole my little pixel heart! Smexy! I am also wearing Pre-Release jewelry from Pheobe and Pomposity. A fabulous lady bug ring and a scorpion necklace that dangerously hangs between my girls. I’m smitten!

 
Let Them Eat Crow

Gopu’s dotted shirt is also from this round of Pre-Release. The mesh shirt is extremely well made and the texture is unbelievably realistic in world. Doesn’t he look hot! Smirk

Put Some Hip in Your Hop

March 22, 2013 at 9:35 pm (Evil Bunny Hunt, Pre-Release Event, Second Life Events, Second Life Hunts) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Easter Eggs!

I decided I wanted to create a few Easter images using the couple pose by F*cking Ninjas from the Evil Bunny Hunt 3 to show Gopu and I painting Easter eggs. The pose is so adorable I couldn’t resist dressing up the space with all these awesome Evil Bunny Hunt scores! The more I pulled out, the harder the decision became of what items to use. The designers really outdid themselves this year! Yay!

Easter Eggs

I chose a dress from Killa Designz that put some hip into my hop! This smexy dress is deliciously retro and since the hud has three texture options, it is really three dresses in one! Pomposity’s Easter Egg earrings are the perfect accompaniment to my little retro Easter outfit. The earrings are incredibly detailed and despite their size, they are actually light as a feather! Both items are from the Pre-Release Easter Event that is happening right now.

Peeps!

I love Infamous’s Peeps; I couldn’t resist shoving a few in my mouth…. heck they have no calories so we can eat as many as we want! They also bring out the beautiful colors of my Easter eyes from blah.BLAH.blah (Noise.)

Gopu Easter

This little blue mohawk punk shoulder bunny by Demented Dreamworx reminds me a bit of mine and Gopu’s high school days! We were a force to be reckoned with back in the day and we did our fair share of skanking down the halls …. but on the inside he was definitely soft as a bunny. Awww.

Rolling Into Spring

March 12, 2013 at 5:51 pm (Pre-Release Event, Second Life Events) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

BubblegumRolling right along….. we are now a cool eight days away from the official beginning of Spring! Of course it never seems like Spring appears until a month later or so, but the promise of new beginnings and the ability to watch our lovely planet come alive is enough to get me going! We even bought spring flowers today for our home from a local shop…. Spring Fever…. bring it on!

Double TakeIn keeping with my new found theme of all things Spring (*insert wicked grins here) I am going to share this cute little romper by Kaithleen from Pre-release. The romper reminded me of these tiny little dress-jumper skort outfits (rompers) I wore quite frequently in the early 90’s in Miami. I loved them … and …. so did the boys!

Roller DuchessI am loving my new roller skates from the Arcade Gacha Event! There are a dozen of so colors at the Arcade. My first attempt yielded a silver pair and my second attempt got exactly what I wanted…. the classic no frills 80’s style skates! The skates even come with an AO so your avatar skates like a pro … sorta proving that roller skating is a lot like riding a bicycle…. but, not really.

Spring is Rolling In....Phoebe’s facial piercings are a good way to add a little bit of toughness to your sweet avatar. They are also available at Pre-Release, so go snag yourself a set…. you never know when you need to add a little bad ass to your cute self.

Spring Smiles

March 10, 2013 at 5:50 pm (iheartslFeed, Pre-Release Event, Second Life Events, SecondLife Music & Fashion) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

SMILE

Ten more days and my favorite season, Spring, begins!! I was giddy with excitement to “Spring forward” today! Just the word “spring” brings a smile to my face! And what better way to celebrate the beginning of the ten day count-down to warm sun rays and cool breezes than shopping at the Pre-Release Event and a visit to Kaelyn’s SIM, It all starts with a smile.

Ice Cream

A stroll around It all starts with a smile with your significant other is as adorable as the Maisy Mesh dress from D&G Fashions I am wearing! I love the length of this skirt and the way it hangs as my avatar struts her stuff. This dress comes in blue as well and goes perfectly with my color changing Redgrave shoes! Since all the items at the Pre-Release event are 125L or less…. yep… get both!

Spring Smiles2

The SIM is tastefully decorated with the most beautiful prim objects…. a true photographers dream! Kaelyn thought of everything…. from lovers sharing ice cream, to lazy day cuddles in the spring flowers, boats, campers, clubhouses…. to so many interactive nooks and crannies one could never get bored!

Field

Gopu and I spent a lot of time laying around in the tall grass watching the clouds. Our fashionably trendy Spring eyes are another score that can be found at the Pre-Release Event! I am wearing a set called Flower Power and Gopu is wearing Wild Eyes, both sets of eyes are from Noise and look amazing in different WL settings. I suggest getting a pair a giving it a try!

Gopu

We watched the sun fall beneath the waves a top a camper decked out with cool fabrics and of course…. more poses! I really like the facial piercings by Phoebe that is Gopu is wearing…. I may see if I can drag him to get it done in RL.

SpringPark

After a long day enjoying the pre-spring weather of “It all starts with a smile” we headed back to our SIM to continue building dreams….. Definitely check out this SIM and have your camera ready for some totally “awwww” moments! I found myself wishing I could rez pose balls, however if it were a possibility I would probably never leave! Also be sure to check out the Pre-Release event, there is a little over a week left to grab some great deals from some amazing designers!
