Hey guys! It’s me popping in to give you a bit of an update. I had wanted to do this post around Easter, or at least at the end of last month so I could have something for April. But that’s okay, because we can start the month fresh ^^
Hey guys – how is November treating you so far? Today is so cold – it was like 20 F today whereas yesterday it was in the 50’s? Madness.
Today I did another Ghee collaboration with my friend and one of the Ghee models, Aorist. I always say I should do more collaborations but they can be tricky to arrange. The last post I did back in 2015 was with Amity.
This month does not look that great for me.
With the exception of getting to go to see Jason Bourne at the movies for my rl birthday, I don’t think August is turning out to be a good month.
– My dad has spent roughly the equivalent of a week in the hospital. He was hospitalized the end of last month, got released after several days, and then went back after he didn’t take his meds.
– The recent heatwave we had has made my room unbearable to be in, never mind focusing long enough to get any significant work done. My room is easiest the hottest place in the house.
– As a result, I haven’t been able to sleep that well. It seems like I can sleep pretty much anywhere else. For instance, the other night I slept on the living room couch…was able to fall asleep a lot faster for some reason.
– For the last several days, I have been dealing with a sore & scratchy throat. Tea, lozenges, honey, water, vitamins…all so it won’t progress further. This weekend I have been coughing a lot as well 😦
One thing I have been doing this month is a LOT of shopping and browsing. There are so many sales on the grid this month, even I had a hard time keeping up.
Hair: Besom – Fetch
Outfit: paper.arrow gym.shorts.&tee (@ Whimsical)
Boots: EMPIRE – Iberis – *MIDNIGHTMADNESS* (not sure if this is in the store or not)
Poses: an lar [poses]

I got this hair from Besom’s 99L sale. I have no idea how long it will last, so you should go there today and see if you can find anything. The outfit is from paper arrow co, who is at the Whimsical event. The event lasts until September 8th, so you still have time to shop ^^ I also got a dress by Storybook as well.
Hey guys! I had mentioned earlier that I would do another post on the Aloha Fair, and here it is! Ghee is another store that is currently at the Aloha Fair. It started July 27th, and it ends on August 10th. Today I will show you a sample of what is available at the fair, but you can always check the Ghee website to get more of an idea of what is in store for you.
Hey guys! I know I have spoken to a few people about this already, but next month I will be teaching courses at Miss SL Academy! This is great for those who always wanted to learn how to model in Second Life, but wasn’t sure if it’s for them. Also, you will be able to learn (or improve on) a skill set that can be applied to every day Second Life. I will be holding sessions on August 4th and August 11th. Those are two Thursday dates. There are other days and times too , but you would need to check the calendar under Academy – > Schedule.

For those who are not familiar with Miss SL, the Miss SL Organization consists of the modeling academy (where I will be teaching), the agency (where certified models are able to find work), and the two pageants for men and women. You can learn more about Miss SL here.
Next month, I will be teaching the following topics:
I had bought the Lelutka hair from Hair Fair (which ends soon, so go there), and was already wearing a swimsuit from Ghee. You can find it at the Aloha Fair, which I have blogged about in my last post. I will be doing another post soon so you can see more of the swimsuit, along with other items Ghee is offering. So once I had the hair and the swimsuit, I added some accessories. I really liked Chop Zuey’s Black Night, Silver Moon from the Vincent in Aries collection. The choker especially seemed to polish my overall look. I really liked the contrast the black stones had with the silver.
Hey guys! If you did not already know, the 2016 Fashion for Life sims are now open and ready for you to shop ’til you drop!
One thing that I liked about this year’s Fashion for Life is the guidebook that has been provided for us. It’s a quick way of seeing what brands are participating at Fashion for Life, the FFL committee, photos of each themed sim along with their SLurls, and schedules of music performances and fashion shows.
If you do not want to look at the guidebook to have access to the SLurls, here they are now:
FFL3 – Beatles Sim (sponsored by Emerald Couture – JieJie Emerald)
FFL4 – Moulin Rouge (sponsored by Ever An’ Angel. – Ever Courtois and Angelique Wickentower)
FFL5 – David Bowie (sponsored by The Grey Goose – Dobby Meskin)
FFL6 – Pin Up Sim (sponsored by Lavian & Co. – Sage Pexie &SamanthaSJones Resident)
FFL9 – Vikings Sim (sponsored by NVhe – Neoma Vasila )
My hair is blowing in the wind I’m so sexy and free
And when my make-up is on I feel like a rock-star
The sun is shining on me oh yes, I’m living large

I think my favorite go-to look over the past few days is to wear a jumpsuit and to put a bolero over it. Lelutka did a great job coming out with these little jackets over the holidays ^^ I like jumpsuits because they fit most people, and it’s not a lot of work to look fabulous. Plus, to me they are the glam version of comfort.
The jumpsuit I have on today is by Valentina E, and I got it from Uber. This round ends on the 23rd, so you still have time to visit.
It’s almost New Year’s where I am, so I want to wish all of my readers a happy and joyous New Year! It means a lot that you guys come and visit my blog. There will be many changes in the New year for me, some having to do with this blog. Stay tuned!
