Staying In

Okay, a couple of things to get back in the blogging frame of mind…

GSpot Organics is a store that’s new to me, but I really like what I’ve seen so far. They have a mini dress out at One Voice with quite a few options – the fine knit version is my favorite. I was going to wear it out, but it’s late, so I think I’m going to be staying in tonight… man, I’m old.

Staying In

You really really want to see the back of this hair – it’s so pretty! I took a picture – it’s on my Flickr.

Speaking of, the gift from Exile at Hair Fair 2012 is basically the same as the hair above, but with different bangs (and streaks). It comes in 4 tones, which pretty much cover the whole range – check them out:

I don’t think I need to say anything more about One Voice than has already been said. Except, maybe, that it’s ending tonight – everything is still up as of right now, but you might want to hurry. The SLurl is below.

Feel your way

Valentine’s day is one of my favorite holidays – what’s there not to like about a day dedicated to expressing how much you love the people in your life?

Whether you’re waiting…




Or certain…


Regardless of your relationship status, I hope today – and always – you have love in your life.



I’d rather be at the beach.

Beachy and sandy and ...

There is a reason that “work” is a four-letter word, and that’s all I’m going to say about it.

Special Faery RFL 2011

The Fantasy Faire this year has raised a fantastic donation for Relay for Life… before it ends tonight, let’s see if we can still increase the total! Cancer is something that will touch all of us at some point in our lives, and treatment has come a very long way, but not far enough. Not until a life expectancy after diagnosis is expected, not a wishful thought.

Fantasy Faire Faeries

Special edition faeries from Evie’s Closet for the Fantasy Faire 2011. They both benefit RFL and can be found in Evie’s main store (currently set in the sky). Link below, but I’m not sure they will be up after tonight (when the Fantasy Faire ends.)

I’ve always wanted to be a mermaid…

I’ve always wanted to be a mermaid, swimming around under the water weightless and free… then I had a back surgery where I couldn’t move my legs and I had a much deeper appreciation for bipedalism.

Mermaid Inspiration

Lucky for me, I can still be a mermaid in Second Life. Mermaid Treasure & Boutique makes beautiful mermaid costumes to aid our imagination, and for this week you can find them at the Sea of Mer sim at the Fantasy Faire. The Faire runs until April 10th and special vendors donate directly to Relay for Life, which benefits the American Cancer Society.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Every year my Dad would make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day for both my mother and myself.   Not like he would get us expensive presents, but he would always make sure we knew exactly how loved we were.  One year he wrote the things he loved best about us on slips of paper – I still have those.  Because of him I’ve never been able to get into the whole “Hallmark holidays are silly” – whether I’ve been single or not. That doesn’t mean, however, I can’t enjoy a good laugh at the expense of sickening sweetness everywhere.


Still, I tend to get into whatever is going on around Valentine’s Day – I like the sentiment, I like the colors (purple, red, pink – if we could throw in green it would cover my whole wardrobe), heck – I even like the hearts (in moderation). Since I joined Second Life – I really really love it when it means new clothes or skins – Hi, I’m Daybreak, and I’m a shopaholic. Except, I don’t go to meetings.


This better not be an intervention!

Last day for the diamond to be yours…

While these past several weeks have pretty much laughed at any plans I might have ever had to actually get anything done, I did have a chance to check out several of the great gifts available in the Diamond is Mine Hunt. Here are just a couple of my favorites:

DIMH - Bubblez and n-creation DIMH - Sassy! DIMH - Apple May Designs

No, the skirt in the first picture doesn’t have holes in it – it has one of the best uses of layers and glow I’ve seen in a while – when it moves, it’s like there are stars in your skirt… in a good way, not in the gee, wouldn’t that be uncomfortable to have actual stars in your skirt kind of way.  You’ll want to click on the pictures to get to my Flickr to see the detail on the bracelet and earrings. There’s also a few more pics there of the stuff you can find.

Halloween at the Plastik!!

When I joined Second Life last year, it was the creativity that I saw in the Fall that made me stay. So many incredible creators that are so vastly different, which gives all of us consumers just that many more ways we can choose to express ourselves as well. Personally, I’m a consumer because I have no talent for creation, but I like to put things together and play around with what other people do. Nothing is limited. Sure, the season you are in probably influences your choices (if you’re into fashion), but dressing up or trying something different isn’t limited to fancy dress parties or any particular day of the year. My next couple of posts are going to show off some of the different things that I have found recently, (yes, that is the point of this blog, so I am being redundant) but fair warning – some of them are likely to be Halloween related for right now. Well, the special items that are out and available for Halloween provided I get to posting in time. (I’m hoping to get more than one done a day.) Then, back to “look at all the cool stuff I found today!”

Anyone who has checked out this blog knows that I’m a HUGE fan of Aikea Rieko, the designer behind the Plastik. So, when I saw her Halloween collection, I knew I had to get my sick self off the couch and in front of a computer (and spend several days making sure I get decent pictures)! Here are some of what she created for 2010 – I’ve barely scratched the surface here, but… there are more pics of her awesome stuff on my Flickr. (You’ll also find full body pics of the skins so you can see the awesome bones/muscles and spiderweb designs.)

Donate – Couples Poses

Project Donate has fantastic couples poses for sale to benefit flood victims in Pakistan. I’m still getting used to adjusting poses for two, so bear with me if they aren’t perfect, but check out some of the poses you can find:

Project Donate Poseur and *FaKE* Project Donate Storin' and *FaKE* Project Donate Juxtapose and *FaKE* Project Donate *FaKE* and Poseur Project Donate Oh My Stars! and *FaKE*

Don’t you love the tiled water in the first picture? I do. I just can’t figure out how to not make that happen. Something more important – the pose from the first picture actually comes in that mat of Autumn leaves that you can see at our feet. There are four couples poses in the mat AND there are particle leaves that fall around you in a beautiful, whimsical way. Unfortunately, when I took the pic, I had turned off particles, so you can’t see them here. Trust me, they’re beautifully done.
The top I’m wearing in all the pics also available to benefit Project Donate from *FaKE* – a lot of these are also available at the main stores of their creators.


Road Trip!

I’m pretty good at getting myself to style an outfit and take pictures, but I’m SO not good at getting those pictures into a blog post!  However, I have some really cool stuff to show you – now would be the time to pay attention…

The Plastik is having a Road Trip sale to help pay for gas while Aikea Rieko takes off around the US to check out what there is out there.  To say I’m jealous can be qualified as the understatement of the year, but let’s set that aside and just say that I hope she has a wonderful time!!! Here are just a few things you can find from the sale:

Boho Prayer - Road Tripping Shredder - Road Trip! Valerian - Road Tripping Road Trips Need Octane
I love the pose from dfo! in the second pic. I crack up every time I look at it.

Right, so, like I said before – the sale is to pay for gas, and because she’s super awesomely creative and can read my mind when I need more Plastik in my life, there’s a sale on a ton of items (79) right in front at the main landing point for Plastik.  Go check it out, and if you want to see some of the other fantastic things on sale – there are more pics on my Flickr.
