Back to Bed

It's early-ish on a Sunday morning and I really don't feel like I should be out of bed... BUT it's the first Sunday of the month and that means HellBone is up early, stomping around like an elephant to get ready for his RL MC meeting... He did bring me some breakfast in bed, a redeeming factor that he's lucky for, but I'm one of those people that once I'm awake, I cannot get back to sleep! 
So I got up, I made some more tea, and then I got back into bed in SL lol... 
It's always peaceful here at this time in the morning... None of the MC are around, and when Lil is off with Hell in RL Biker mode, I have the sim to myself... All you can hear is the sound of the crickets and the swamp animals... Sometimes it's more peaceful here than at home in RL lol...
My new bed is a HUGE truck from Consignment, perfect for the Swamp, it's already rusty, but least this way I won't worry about it getting wet... It's the perfect size for me and my new plushie... A Tweedle from Katat0nik,... I LOVE HIM SO MUCH and he doesn't steal all the space in the bed, like HellBone does LOL... 
Now just one more thing, I know you're probably wondering why the heck I decided to go to bed in my boots... WOULDN'T YOU?? These boots are amazeballs, and I haven't taken them off for anything besides taking a photo LOL...  Get your pair from Reign, at this month's Uber, but I warn you, the patterns are so gorgeous, you won't know which to choose... I was sensible at first, I picked the plain black, as black goes with everything pretty much, but I think I may - when I can bring myself to get out of bed - go back to Uber and get some funky patterns on my boots hehe...

Brown Sugar


     Ok, I know this does not look like Kirsten. Not only am I wearing a dark skin, but I also changed the features on my face as well. I am an alterego blogger and the exclusive skin at The Mesh Body Addicts Fair is Lana in havana and brown sugar (shown) which are two of the darker skin tones in the alterego skin line. Although not normally me, this skin is gorgeous and I really like being able to add this kind of variety to my blog so that more people can find things they want and love. I have friends in SL that have looked for darker skin tones and often had trouble finding a tone they liked. They reported to me that it was sometimes hard to find dark skin tones that were not chalky and grey and had good definition and details. These exclusive skins from alterego, as you can see, are smooth and really well done. If you are in the market for a darker skin tone, definitely try the alterego exclusive skins at MBA. 



     I am also wearing a ViVi applier bikini, SlackGirl eyeshadow, and Lambda original mesh shoes. I am way into chevron pattern right now, so this bikini was a hit for me. I also really like how the gold rings in the shoes and bikini coordinate effortlessly like they were made to go together when really they are from two different designers. You can find all four or these exclusives at The Mesh Body Addicts Fair from August 1 through 21st.

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [3]

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [2]

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…

3rd Annual Rock your Rack Fundraiser Event




Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women. 1 in 8 women, and an every increasing percentage of men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.

Models Giving Back is pleased to present Rock Your Rack, an annual fundraising event combining the best of SL Music and Fashion to support the work of breast cancer charities and raise awareness for early detection which is critical to a positive outcome for this devastating disease.

This year's event will support the National Breast Cancer Foundation which provides free mammograms, education, support and early detection services to anyone in need.

The 2015 event is on three sims and involves 64 designers including 4 Platinum Sponsors: Ever An' Angel, Lybra, PurpleMoon, and Sky.  Along with these designers, 5 Live Musical Artists, 1 dance team and 5 DJs will provide entertainment throughout the two week long Event.

Events during the fundraiser include 8 fashion shows, 6 live musical concerts, a performance by the Shadow's Silhouette Dancers, DJ dance parties, a 10L Hunt, Silent Auction areas, and more.  Designers will be providing exclusive creations with 100% of the sales of those items going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation along with a fine selection of the newest and most popular designs donating a percentage as well. 

For a complete listing of events and more details on this year's event, please visit the website:  http://rockyourrack.wordpress.com

This year's event officially opens to the public on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at 12:00am SLT and will close at 11:59pm SLT on Sunday, October 11, 2015.

Together we can make a difference!

Those who are unable to attend but wish to support the cause, may visit the Model's Giving Back official donation page at https://fundraise.nbcf.org/mgb2015 where donations can be made directly using a variety of means.

About the National Breast Cancer Foundation

The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail.  She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34.  At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options.  After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection.  NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need.  This mission includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.
