What the Tortoise Taught Us

A sandscape with two sets of booted footprints. Much smaller feet in flats decorated in a heart cast a shadow over the footprints.

You're in a desert, walking along in the sand when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling toward you...
You reach down and flip the tortoise over on its back.
The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over. But it can't. Not with out your help. But you're not helping.
Why aren't you helping?

                            --paraphrased from the Blade Runner interrogation scene.

Love Myself

The all new #Trending event opened today and the designers have outdone themselves.

With spring right around the corner (one can hope anyhow) it was time to pull out some fun spring outfits and poses.

First up we have this super cute dress from Distinction, it comes with an Omega hud and system layers. It’s available in 6 different colors and has a mesh skirt panel. This dress is currently only available at #Trending.

Dress: ~=Distinction=~ Early Spring {Violet}

The pose is by the one and only Kay Weston of Image Essentials it will available during the Flower Power event coming February 12 to February 26. This item is a gacha and I’m trying out the super cute flutterby rare item. This pose is a cute mushroom with butterflies flitting around. The butterfly on my finger is in different spots for each pose and can be moved to sit where you want it for best effect.

Nails: DP – Koffin Nails – Maitreya HUD – Sequin Hearts

I recently discovered Kibitz and I just absolutely adore the ring sets that are offered. When I wanted something different it’s the first place I went to. This particular set comes with a hud to change the gemstones. I love it!

Rings: Kibitz – Melody ring set – silver

Bracelet: **RE** Aeternum Female Bracelet

My last find at #Trending are these shoes. So cute! They are only available for Slink feet but so worth it. They come with a HUD with 8 different color options and two metal options. They are fun and sexy.

Shoes: [QE] Lust Heels -Spring Edition-

The sim has become one of my favorites for taking pics or just a romantic night out. Eclectica has so many different settings you can find exactly what you’re looking for with ease.

Remember all items from #Trending are exclusively available only at the event until the end of the month, so grab them while they are hot!
