Bandana Day

Bandana 026

Tomorrow is the last day of the hair fair.  So you still have time to rush over there and grab some fantastic hairs and your bandana and be a part of supporting the Wigs for Kids, a charity that provides hair replacement systems and support to children who have lost their hair due to medical issues at no cost to them and their families.  With every purchase of hair a portion of the proceeds goes to this charity.

Plus don’t forget to pick up your bandana for tomorrow as well.  Since 2007, the last day of the hair fair everyone in Second Life is encouraged to take off their hair and wear a bandana in support of this worthy cause.  The bandanas are decorated by designers or anyone who wants to participate and often accompanied by a note card sharing their story of why they support this cause.  Once the event is over all bandanas are destroyed never to be sold again and 100% of the proceeds from all bandanas sold go directly to Wigs for Kids.

Taxi to Hair Fair.

The castaway

Castaway 004

A new round of The Challenge started today and the theme this month is castaway.   Shutter Field has designed two sets for this event.  The castaway bed set includes the lantern and bed, which has solo and couple animations and wearable props.  The outhouse set gave me a chuckle when I spotted the bathroom tissue on the makeshift outhouse.  The toilet and outhouse stuff completes the set.

The Challenge runs from the 1st of the month to the 2oth and items in the event are discounted 30%.

I am wearing a new skin that I actually purchased a while back and recently found when I was fumbling around in my inventory trying to get it organized a little better.  You really can’t see it in this picture, but you can see it on the sidebar of the blog page.  I’m also wearing new color eyes.  I’m sharing all that, because what I really wanted to point out is that I have made a basics menu up above to list all those items I use regularly and won’t bore you with being so repetitive under credits after this post.

Have a great Tuesday!

When I’m back on on my feet again

When Im back on my feet 010

Gonna break from these chains around me
Gonna learn to fly again
May be hard, may be hard
But I’ll do it
When I’m back on my feet again
Soon these tears will all be dryin’
Soon these eyes will see the sun
Might take time, might take time
Bull I’ll see it
When I’m back on my feet again

Epia 0012

The Arcade is open and if you’ve been trying to get in I hope you were successful.  I heard there were lots of people whining of not being able to gain access even using their hud attachments to try and get in.  Some literally doing it for hours.

I am wearing one of the rare items from Every Pixel is Art (Epia).  The Egyptian princess necklace comes in a pink gold and is one of the 20 necklaces that can be won for this round of gacha goodness. It’s such a beautiful piece as many of the others in the set, which I hope to show you some more of.

I am also showing another awesome landscaping tree that Little Branch has released for this round of FaMESHed.

We’re not broken ~ just adrift.

Broken 008
When I was trying out the animations on this broken chair and came to this one pose the scene immediately developed for me.   I figured a couple of trees and driftwood for the background would be simple enough as the focus would be the chair.  I fixed the picture and then gave some thought to a title and the obvious choice would be broken and then as I saw the driftwood just floating there adrift the title came to me.  I’m not broken, I’m just adrift right now.

The statement resounded in me and I thought that’s how I feel these days.  A little like just going through the motions and a bit scattered and not completely focused.  Not broken.. just adrift at the moment.  No. I’m not caught up in fantasy.  Far from it.  Reality smacks me too quickly these days to get myself too caught up in any type of fantasy.  It’s almost that feeling of being at a fork in the road in your life.  Maybe feeling a little stuck and on hold and yet having that feeling like I’m on the verge or cusp of or needing to make a turn.   Life hasn’t been boring lately that’s for sure.

Speaking of being a bit scattered.  I was leaving the house and was in my car when I suddenly realized that I had to have returned the rental vehicle two hours earlier.  Yikes.  I quickly called to have them extend the vehicle for another week as I’m leaving out of town tomorrow and won’t be back until the end of the week and I just don’t have time to exchange it.  It had completely slipped my mind and so with that said I have decided not to take a laptop with me while I’m away.

I think that I need to disconnect for a while.  It’s very rare that I will leave town and activate that automatic “I’m out of the office” message, but I think for once I am going to use it without hesitation.

This will be my last post until next week, so I wish everyone a fabulous week!
