{ Time keeps on slipping }

Time keeps on slipping
Into the future
Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping
Into the future
I want to fly like an eagle, to the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly (oh, yeah)
Fly right into the future

The Secret Affair geared up this round by tinkering with all things Steampunky.  A popular roleplay genre in Second Life for many that dates back to the early days and still many sims abound with Victorian gadgetry from pre-mesh days. The Secret Affair can certainly help bring you up to date with some creative low land impact goodies but you better time hop on over before it ends November 30th!

{ 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.

RollingStone-ALL_FINAL

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!
