{ Show them what you’re for }

So build yourself as beautiful as you want your world to be.
Wrap yourself in light then give yourself away with your heart,
your brush,
your march,
your art,
your poetry,
your play.
And for every day you paint the war,
take a week and paint the beauty, the color, the shape of the landscape you’re marching towards.
Everyone knows what you’re against;
Show them what you’re for.
~ Andrea Gibson

Hey hey everybodyyyyy… I’m back!  It’s been a crazy month.  Post-holiday stress, playing catch up, real life, bad weather, illness, birthdays and a trip to the windy city…. But I’m determined to get back to the picture-taking that I love.  It’s always hard to decide what to show off.  There definitely isn’t enough time in my days to style and snap pics of all the gorgeous stuff on the grid that I get my hands on.  *le sigh* I shall give it the old college try though.

Got a little Shiny Shabby, a little Liaison Collaborative, throw in some Uber, and even Gen-Neutral for a look that has me feeling the need to go back on vacation this time to someplace warmer.  South of the border.  Dirty streets.  Colorful old buildings.  Lots of sun.  And even more alcohol.   It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!  Cheers!

{ Float On } FLF, GizzA and Glam Affair goodies!

Got a few fun new goodies to show off to you today… GizzA has come out with several great new outfits lately, this one released just today that I’m loving.  It’s a little bit on the country side, but I think that’s why I like it.  The Wendy Denim Skirt and Knotted Top both come in a variety of colors and patterns to mix and match with each other or other items in your virtual closet.  I am also wearing Glam Affair‘s newest skin, “Fiona“, available at this round of Uber.  6 different makeups in two skin tones and allll the eyebrow options.   Lastly, tomorrow is Fifty Linden Friday and this week oOo Studio is participating with this fun singles pose set with color changing balloon prop!  Definitely a great deal to pick up when you make the rounds.

Happy Weekend everyone!

Have you heard about Shoetopia yet?  Chances are, if you haven’t, you’ve been living under a rock the past month, if not year.  This Shoe Fair has gotten people kicking their heels up and giddy over gorgeous new shoes for the last year really, since it’s preparation began.  And I can say from all that I’ve seen, you shall not be disappointed.  Shoetopia, though long awaited, finally opens today at noon SLT!!  And will continue through November 30th, giving you 14 days of unadulterated shoe-shopping bliss.  So make room in your SL closets, you are going to be in heaven when you see all the beauteous boots, heels, pumps, stilettos, strappy sandals, thigh highs, mules, flats, sneakers, and so much more from all your favorite designers and maybe even a few you’ve never heard of before!

And if tantalizing you with the thought of sweet treats for your feets isn’t enough, let me remind you that Shoetopia has chosen to benefit SOLES4SOULS, a charity that is currently working emergency responders to provide relief to the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines and Southeast Asia.  You will find that many designers will have items out exclusively for this event with all or some proceeds being donated to SOLES4SOULS.

Happy Shopping shoe lovers!
