This past weekend I had the opportunity of walking the Passing the Torch show for Relay For Life. This show was unlike any other show I’d participated in for one reason. It gave teachers and students of SL modeling an opportunity for each to express their feelings about what they do and most importantly, to say thank you. There are so many people whom had a part in my becoming an SL model, some small and some very large. Without those people, I’d not be here today as a virtual model, and possibly not even blogging. I was so excited about the outfits I wore for the show, I wanted to share them with you.
“The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called ‘truth’.” ~Dan Rather
“Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new.” ~Og Mandino
Throughout our lives we are touched by people who take the time to show us something new, teach us a different way, ignite excitement, and even kick us in the tush when we need it. Take a moment to say thank you to those people whom have touched your life today. Those two words are so simple and easy to say and they mean the world to those who receive them.

Do you remember the game we played as children? It began with a whisper into someone’s ear and was continued from friend to friend until it made its way all around the circle. Those whispered words never came back the way they began. It was funny to see how things would be twisted and borked. But as adults, it’s not so funny. It’s been said numerous times in the 6+ years I’ve been in SL that what we write can be misconstrued at times. The feeling and intention behind the words written are often lost in the interpretation. And when whispered from one person to another, that almost always is the case. Add to that the various cultures and languages, and there’s sure to be a disaster at some point. The sad thing is, there are people out there who thrive on causing issues between others. And sadder still, simply asking the person in question, could solve a problem before it even becomes blown enormously out of proportion.
As carefully as I try to weigh and measure my words before hitting enter, I know that I’ve unintentionally hurt others with the words I’ve written at times. I’m human, I make mistakes. All I can do is apologize for the misunderstanding when it occurs. But I can only do that if I know about the problem.
I hope you all have a wonderful day today. Take a moment to hug a friend, you might just make someone’s day a bit better than it began. And be careful with that telephone game, it almost always comes back to bite you in the butt.
Gilded means to cover or highlight something with gold and that’s exactly what Carrie Snowpaw, owner and designer of Snowpaws, did with her new release, Courtesan. You can get this femininely saucy dress in Peacock, Flamingo, and what I’m wearing for you today, Goldfinch. I love the vintage feel of this dress, from the scalloped trim of the neck and shoulders to the asymmetrical lines of the skirt and fringe.
“I want you to want me the way I want you. I want you to come to me and tell me that. Then I want you to show me it’s true.”

Friday’s almost here and if you’re like me, you’re eager to get ready for the weekend! But until then, I hope you have a wonderful day today!
Super short post today. I know, ordinarily I’m quite long-winded. But it’s Monday and I’m feeling it so today’s post is image heavy. I hope you have a great start to the week and your Monday passes by quietly.

We’ve all been anxiously awaiting the new release from LeeZu and she surprised us with not one, but two! Imagine my delight when I saw the Constance Top and Constance Leather Pants in all of their richly beautiful colors like only LeeZu can do! The textures are amazing and the details are divine! Both of which, we’ve come to expect from LeeZu, and she never fails to deliver. The top features a single shoulder strap hanging from the side to create some sensual looks and the pants are cuffed with a sweet lacy ruffle gathered just below the knee.
Wicca and I decided it was time to do another blog post together and I couldn’t help but giggle when we both chose the same outfit worn in our own unique way. It’s so much fun to blog with a friend, especially when that friend is your very best. To see Wicca’s styling info, pay a visit to her awesome blog at http://wiccamerlin.de/news-leezu-at-your-side/.
Doing this blog with Wicca really made me think a lot the past few days. When was the last time you gave thanks for the many gifts you’ve been given? I’m not talking about birthday gifts. I mean the gifts that really matter. I know I haven’t been as thankful as I could be and should be. But the friendship I share with Wicca is something I’m very thankful for. It’s sometimes difficult to find real friendships online. I can count on one hand those I would consider a true friend and Wicca ranks up there at the top. I know that come hell or high water I can always count on her. And I’m so very thankful to the person that introduced us. They gifted me with a best friend I didn’t think I would have.
The weekend is upon us so take some time to enjoy this beautiful spring day and while you’re at it, hug those close to you and let your friends know just how much their friendship really does mean to you. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
There are a lot of new releases popping up all across the grid and that’s no exception for Snowpaws. Carrie Snowpaw, owner and designer of Snowpaws just released a most elegant gown. Paloma, seen below in Breeze, is perfect for those special nights from its shimmering neckline to the perfect bow at the small of the back which flows gracefully into a beautiful train.

I first learned of Living Imagination during Saviad’s Spring Fashion Fair last month and I have to say again, this is the reason I love events. There is always at least one ‘new to me’ designer that I happen upon and fall in love with. I’d known of Bodza Mubble, owner and designer of Living Imagination, as a model. Who knew she could create content too?! And I don’t mean just the run of the mill stuff. I mean creative, romantic, flowing, and colorful items that not only make you look good, but make you feel pretty too.
