Just Resting my Eyes

I had heard that It All Starts with a Smile was back open, so I decided to go check it out. It is now on the Tramonto sim. While exploring I chatted with a couple of people. The last time I was there I did not see anyone. I suggest that all of you guys should come check it out – great for taking pictures or to just take a break from what you are doing.

 The new round of Shiny Shabby starts tomorrow (so don’t kill me when you can’t get in yet). I decided to show you guys some of the things that they have this time around. I’m into tousled hair lately, so Tableau Vivant is great for that sort of thing. And I liked the ruffled collar and the open back (sorry you can’t see of the Dorothy shirt.

 There are people who say that all bloggers do is to talk about the positive aspects of the things that they blog about, and nothing negative. I will say that an issue that I struggle with now is

1. What mesh clothing will go with other mesh clothing that I am wearing?
2. What mesh clothing will go with my Maitreya Lara body?

Even finding pants to go with the shirt that I am wearing AND my mesh body was tricky.  No wonder there are people who have not embraced mesh as of yet. As I said before, from now on when I look for clothing, I look to see can it fit my mesh body. I assume that it can fit my system one (wouldn’t THAT be funny if it didn’t?), so I don’t try it on that body for the most part.

Happy Shopping!

Join Hands for Nepal

Many of us know about the recent earthquakes in Nepal. A group of Second Life residents have decided to help in the efforts to give aid.

JOIN HANDS FOR NEPAL, organized in Second Life© by Valsnia and Ruby Ornamental, has partnered with World Food Program (the Asian branch of this UN Organization) – May 2015.

Join Hands for Nepal - Second Life

Founded in 1961, The World Food Programme (WFP) is the food assistance branch of the United Nations and the world’s largest humanitarian organization addressing hunger and promoting food security.

With the magnitude of the Earthquake in Nepal the WFP immediate put together its Nepal Earthquake response cell and has been quickly moving to support the survivors.

WFP has three main goals under its Nepal earthquake response:
1) deliver food to survivors and those who need it most.
2) provide emergency operation assistance on a massive scale.
3) help the humanitarian aid community with relief hub services.

WFP needs US $116.5 million to provide food for 1.4 million people for three months , which translates to US $27 for a person for the entire month until they are able to stabilize and organize their own means of sustenance.

Spring is for Butterflies

 Hey guys! I was inspired by this post while cleaning my inventory ^^ For once I decided to be daring and downloaded the beta version of the Firestorm viewer. I had heard that you could filter your inventory to show items that were older than X days. As you know, after so many days the inventory would simply stop showing the items if you went too far back.

I managed to clear out 5k items in 3 hours. It was relatively easy because with everything being mesh nowadays, all of those system layer clothing and prim furniture can go buh-bye! Sorting out “5 years and older” items wasn’t that bad, but I only managed like a quarter of the “4 years and older” items before I got tired. Anyway, I found this cute hat from Lillou’s Designs and combined it with a pink nurse’s hat from katat0nik. Pairing them from some of ghee’s latest fashion line for the season had some pretty desirable results!

One thing I wanted to point out was that I am wearing the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body. The last few posts I had on the body. Even though I probably won’t wear it in every post, I will be looking for clothing from now on that fits both mesh and the regular body.
