Clearly…

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.

Another picture of this outfit on my Flickr.

Non Sono Una Signora

There’s a lot I could say about Mila Tatham’s “Non Sono una Signora”, but I think I’ll let it speak for itself.

Non Sono Non Sono Una Signora

Cosa?

Okay, enough of that. I love this. I love the way it came together, but mostly I love the dress and the headpiece. They remind me of Rome, actually, and how you can walk down the street and into a random Church and there is an original painting most people only see in textbooks, just on the wall.  When I first moved there, I didn’t get that.  It weirded me out that these priceless works of art were just sitting there, not in a museum.

What I began to understand, though, is that the art doesn’t belong in a museum.  The whole city is a museum (of sorts).  Art belongs where it is intended by the artist – whether it is on the wall of a Church, or being worn by someone walking down the street.  Everything is an exhibition.  That’s something I have missed since I left.

Tangerine

I’ve always been torn about some things. I like the convenience of cities, but I like the quiet of small towns. I even like getting lost from time to time, but I tend to think that the more lost you get, the more you can find yourself.

Where was that place again?

One note: this is the usual windlight setting with local lights turned. More pics with and without local lights on my Flickr.

Totally Rad

I feel like I’m on Saved by the Bell or something.  And it’s awesome!!!

Does this still look cute?

So, while I go listen to some Bon Jovi and NKOTB on my way to the Max, we need to remember that today is the last day for Fashion for Life. I have a couple other really cute finds that I’ll post in a bit, but for now, just remember that today is the last day of this Relay fashion event – so… GO!

I think I’m ready to go…

And you say I'm never ready...

If you want me to stop playing model and finish getting ready, maybe you should stop taking my picture!

Baking Treats

The first day of holiday baking starts out optimistic.  So many people on your list, and all of them love cookies!

TSE - Baffle! & TJunction

Except, I keep forgetting that making cookies takes forever.

TSE - Baffle! & TJunction

Somehow, the amount of dough you have to work with never gets any smaller… not on day two

TSE - Baffle! & TJunction

Or day three…

TSE - Baffle! & TJunction

Eventually, all of the cookies are done, packed and ready to be given to your friends and family, which means that it’s time to check on that stocking you left by the fireplace and see if any goodies have magically appeared.

TSE - paper.doll & Plastik

Just be sure you don’t get caught, or they might disappear.

For more stocking shenanigans, there are a few more pictures (and bigger versions of the pics here) on my Flickr.

Project Donate – Helping Flood Victims

Okay, I suck at blogging in a timely fashion.  However, you have until the 19th to get to Project Donate and … well.. donate.  The event is to benefit UNICEF’s relief efforts in Pakistan after the massive flooding that has happened there.  Check out some of the cool stuff you can pick up to help a really good cause:

Project Donate Atomic, Addict, and Truth Project Donate Rapture

You can find skins (here you can see what Atomic and PXL Creations have to offer), hair (Truth’s Aloha style), clothes (Addict put out this great shirt), and body decorations (AtomicBambi’s body vine is exquisite).

Close-up of the skins and Truth’s hair:

One of the things I love most about Second Life is how everyone comes together in times of need and helps.  Regardless of whether it is an established event like Relay for Life, or something new like Project Donate, the Second Life community comes together and gives however they can.  I’m very proud to be part of a community like this one, so I’m embarrassed and seriously angry at myself for not getting to blogging about Project Donate sooner (and more frequently).
