“The wings of transformation are born of patience and struggle.”

~ Janet S. Dickens 

 

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.

{ The fire burning within }

Into the fire
I’m reunited
Into the fire
Oh, I am the spark
Into the night
I yearn for comfort

I will stare into the sun until its light doesn’t blind me
I will walk unto the fire until its heat doesn’t burn me
And I will feed the fire

Showing off the sunny side of Shiny Shabby with a dash of Summerfest thrown in and a sneak peek at some new “Sunning” poses w/prop towel from oOo Studio coming out this week for Fifty Linden Fridays!  GizzA also has these fanceh new shades that I just love (cuz I like to be fanceh 😀 ).  Which also happened to pair well with the gorgeous new Mohio jewelry set from Empyrean Forge.  And for indecisive girls like me, they both come with color-changing HUDs to match your look for the day. Yay!  Go get your beach on!

{ Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness } NEW for The Secret Affair!

The time will come
When you’ll have to rise
Above the best and prove yourself,
Your spirit never dies!

Farewell, I’ve gone to take my throne above,
But don’t weep for me
‘Cause this will be
The labor of my love

Here we are, don’t turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town.
Here we are, don’t turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town
From dust.
