{ I’ll be waiting.. come and find me }

Hi there. Remember me?  Pardon me for being missing in action for the past few weeks but between birthdays and parental duties and getting in a knock down drag out fight with a flu virus I’ve had my hands full.  I’m still a bit under the weather but I’m on the upswing and a particular event in Second Life had me motivated to get out some pics and posts before it passed on by… I’m referrring to the latest round of Enchantment, of course!

castle-large_final

This month’s theme of “Cinderella” has me nostalgic for my childhood and remembering seeing it for the first time in the movie theater on the big screen.  A fairytale coming alive before my eyes.. and the story of a girl that against all odds had her dreams come true.  If anything Cinderella should give us all a little bit of hope for something better. And that it’s never too late for your happily ever after.

Check out Enchantment before the magic ends March 4th!  The clock is ticking!  (The date was extended to the 4th due to sim issues earlier in the event)

{ Black and Gold }

I look up into the night sky
And see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black
I feel a weight of something beyond them
I don’t see what I can feel
If vision is the only validation
Then most of my life isn’t real
‘Cause if you’re not really here
Then the stars don’t even matter
Now I’m filled to the top with fear
But it’s all just a bunch of matter
‘Cause if you’re not really here
Then I don’t want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

The Secret Affair will be opening up for yet another round of fantastical goodies on September 14th focusing on all things golden and glitzy.  You’re sure to find anything from urban glam to heavenly gilded gorgeousness.  The event will only be around for 2 short weeks so hurry on over to see what rich treasures await you.

In addition, I want to take this time to mention another very special event going on right now thru September 20th called “The Book of Daniel” that is in dedication to our very own Daniel Estro of Zerkalo.  This past year Daniel has been battling a type of brain cancer.  Needless to say, dealing with such an illness has halted his ability to continue his livelihood thru Second Life at this time…not to mention the enormous financial burden this has put on his family.

This is a fundraising event put together by Neva Xenga of Shiny Shabby and owner of the Neva River Sims, also a very close friend to Daniel and his family.  In collaboration with numerous designers/creators from around the grid to give of themselves so generously in hopes to raise money and offer support to help Daniel and his RL/SL wife & business partner, Anais Terpellie, in their time of need.  Please consider shopping this event and know that in doing so you are helping someone else just like you, who is a part of this wonderful community of Second Life.

To read more about Daniel’s Story and about the event see Neva’s page here.

Catch a twister before Enchantment blows on by, the event will wrap up in a few short days on August 31st .. This round’s theme of “Wizard of Oz” is full of magic and whimsy recounting a story we’ve all known and loved since we were little.  Though I will admit there as always a little something about it that frightened me as a child.  Tornadoes, witches, and of course.. Flying monkeys!  If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em I say!

Fly, my pretties!!

{ And all the beauty I have ever dreamed is right here in front of me }

Steal my breath away
‘Cause I’m so moved by you
Deeper than I ever thought
Was possible, was possible, it’s everything, oh

Difference between me and you
It’s all in where your heart lies
And every day’s another chance
So let’s get it right

I am you
You are me
We are one
Take me in your arms
And flow through me
I’ll flow through you

WheatField_FINAL

Did you lose yourself out there
Did you lose faith and give up
Don’t turn away and hide yourself
‘Cause there’s a friend to make along the way

We are the heartbeat and our souls speak
And all the beauty I have ever dreamed
Is right here in front of me, oh
Is right here in front of me, oh

{ the place where time stands still } WE <3 RP & EMPYREAN FORGE

Baby, where’s that place where time stands still?
I remember like a lover can
But I forget it like a leaver will

It’s no place you can get to by yourself
You’ve got to love someone and they love you
Time will stop for nothing else

And memory plays tricks on us
The more we cling, the less we trust
And the less we trust, the more we hurt
And as time goes on, it just gets worse

So, baby, where’s that place where time stood still?
It is under glass inside a frame
Was it over when you had your fill

And here we are with nothing
But this emptiness inside of us
Your smile a fitting, final gesture
Wish I could have loved you better

Baby, where’s that place where time stands still?
I remember like a lover can
But I forget it like a leaver will

It’s the first time that you held my hand
It’s the smell and the taste and the fear and the thrill
It’s everything I understand
And all the things I never will

{ Feeling blue.. but not really } NEW from GizzA & Glamistry!

I was feeling blue.. but not really.  Not in a sad sort of way.  Blue because it’s one of my favorite colors.  It does invoke a sense of calm with it as well.  And I surely need calm in my life right now.  With school back in session and my Arcade shopping done.. this might be as calm as it gets for me right now.  So I’ll take it.

Flowery-full_FINAL

Celebrating calm with GizzA‘s new “Flowery Perfume” blouse and hot pants set in a beautiful shade of blue (also comes in pink and mango colors controlled with a texture changing HUD).  I paired it with my new “Anemuna” heels from Glamistry, a brand that’s still relatively new to the grid and I have no doubt they will become one of the go-to shoe shops.  Glamistry has a very unique HUD system that allows you to still purchase individual colors one at a time, and still not bog down your inventory.  It keeps track of which colors you own through a database and pulls them up whenever you wear your HUD!  Glorious!  My inventory is forever thankful as more and more designers start using HUDs to allow color change options vs. multiple copies of clothing pieces.  And you know what that means… MORE ROOM FOR MORE CLOTHES!  😀

Happy Shopping!
