Sometimes its better to walk away from temptation

Happy Friday!! It also means Fifty Linden Friday today only — in case you aren’t aware of this ongoing weekly event, every Friday participating stores have an item out for only $50 lindens. It’s a wonderful opportunity to grab some often cute fashion, poses and home and garden decor.  One of today’s bargain is this food trailer by Anhelo, which is available in two colors. The condiment bottles and hot-dog packages are group gifts. It’s really worth the buy and great for sim decor, role-play or in this case for creating a scene for a quick snapshot.

The other decor being featured is the bench by .:revival:., which is part of October’s Deco(c)rate mystery box and the cute chipmunk collection along with the fallen log is by JIAN, available at The Season’s Story.

To complete the scene I put myself in there wearing new hair by eXxEsS called Verona that can be found at their main store.  The dress is by Scandalize and comes in various colors and it’s currently available at FaMESHed and the new shoes are by Empire and can be found at Collabor88.  As always with Empire shoes, for one set price you get a HUD with 12 colors.  Please note that I’m using all Slink mesh body parts instead of Maitreya, though can be found for the latter as well.

Have a fabulous start to your weekend!

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

Part of the lyrics from “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.
