{ Cool girl }

You can run free, I won’t hold it against ya
You do your thing, never wanted a future
Fuck if I knew how to put it romantic
Speaking my truth, there’s no need to panic
No, let’s not put a label on it
Let’s keep it fun
We don’t put a label on it
So we can run free, yeah
I wanna be free like you

I’m a, I’m a, I’m a cool girl, I’m a, I’m a cool girl
Ice cold, I roll my eyes at you, boy
I’m a cool girl, I’m a, I’m a cool girl
Ice cold, I roll my eyes at you, boy
Rules you don’t like, but you’re still gonna keep ’em
Said you want fines for whatever reason
Show we can chill, try and keep it platonic
Now you can’t tell if I’m really ironic
No, let’s not put a label on it
Let’s keep it fun
We don’t put a label on it
So we can run free, yeah
I wanna be free like you

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.

You know that feeling ladies.. come onnnn… when you open up your inventory and with over 100k of stuff you still don’t know what to wear??  And your guy is tappin his foot waiting and wondering why the hell it takes you so long to put something on to go out.  He just doesn’t understand what a painstaking process it is to look this damn good. 😉

ShoeDecisions-close_FINAL

At the end of the night he’s usually pretty appreciative of the effort though. Otherwise you can chuck a stiletto at him… you have my permission. 😛

Mixing it up for The Secret Affair and The Liaison Collaborative this month, two themes that combine so very well for that summer hippy vibe for all you crunchy granolas out there!  Both events end sooooon, so get on over and shop before the month ends!

Also here’s a special preview of the new LAQ mesh head “Trinity” (but of course I would have to own a head after my own namesake).  I really love it’s unique shape and profile.  And LAQ already has several appliers ready to go for it, as well as Glam Affair (Aida is always on top of things! She’s a machine! BAM!).  Here I’m showing you the GA “Meredith” Applier released for Kustom9.  There are sure to be many more skin makers getting in gear to put a face on this lovely new head.  Can’t wait to see!
