Gray

You are probably looking at the picture above and thinking… hmm… that isn’t normally what Harlow looks like! Today I am supporting the American Brain Tumor Association  and their fight against brain tumors and brain cancer with their Wear Gray for a Day Campaign.  Second Life has joined in the fight against these terrible diseases by setting up a fantastic market featuring stores new and old across the grid in one central location.  Two of the many stores taking place in this year’s event are Glam Affair & Rezispa Loc.  I am wearing both above!

So come, and stop by the Wear Gray Event and support the fight against Brain Cancer.  The event runs from April 6th through the 22nd, and features so many great items to support this cause!

Kawaii

Easter is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than to dress up super cute for the occasion? The [A]Limited event and first round have officially opened and there are lots of goodies to pick up for a limited time.  All the items have a limited number that will be sold, and then they will be gone for good.  The theme for this round is based around the idea of Kawaii…. or really really cute and adorable things! Also, don’t forget to join the Atomic Group while there and pick up the fantastic freebie hoodie from Aura.  It’s adorable!

I picked up the cupcake hat, and the cupcake shirt from the event.  The hat comes in a few different colors for purchase, and has a resize script in it.  The hair is not included.  My adorable rabbit is from oOo Studio!  It’s a pose set with a handful of great poses and the bunny prop as a part of the set.  So cute! Or…shall I say Kawaii!

Not sure if I’ll be blogging this weekend, due to a really busy schedule, so I wanted to wish you all a very HOPPY and blessed Easter if you celebrate!  If you don’t…well…use it as an excuse to pig out on a lot of great candy! <3

The Luna Moth

No eye that sees could fail to remark you:   

like any leaf the rain leaves fixed to and   
flat against the barn’s gray shingle. But
what leaf, this time of year, is so pale,   
the pale of leaves when they’ve lost just   
enough green to become the green that means
loss and more loss, approaching? Give up   
the flesh enough times, and whatever is lost   
gets forgotten: that was the thought that I
woke to, those words in my head. I rose,   
I did not dress, I left no particular body   
sleeping and, stepping into the hour, I saw
you, strange sign, at once transparent and   
impossible to entirely see through. and how   
still: the still of being unmoved, and then
the still of no longer being able to be   
moved. If I think of a heart, his, as I’ve   
found it…. If I think of, increasingly, my
own…. If I look at you now, as from above,   
and see the diva when she is caught in mid-
triumph, arms half-raised, the body as if
set at last free of the green sheath that has—
how many nights?—held her, it is not   
without remembering another I once saw:
like you, except that something, a bird, some   
wild and necessary hunger, had gotten to it;  
and like the diva, but now broken, splayed
and torn, the green torn piecemeal from her.   
I remember the hands, and—how small they   
seemed, bringing the small ripped thing to me.
- The Luna Moth by Carl Phillips
Have you ever stopped by The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse  for one of our poetry nights? We have one tonight at 7pm SLT, and every other Thursday after today.  We do our poetry events over voice, but if you aren’t comfortable sharing, you can always just come, sit around the campfire and listen.  It’s a great experience! Poetry, prose, song lyrics, short stories, etc… anything is welcome.
Also, isn’t this mesh skirt from elymode lovely?  I’ve been meaning to blog it for quite some time now.  Just recently I had the opportunity to see a very beautiful luna moth for the first time as I was stepping out my door to go to work one morning.  It was stunning.  It captured my attention, and for some reason stayed on my mind all day long.  I don’t think i’d ever seen anything so beautiful and delicate in nature before.  I hoped all day long that I’d get to see it one more time before it flew off, and when I got home that afternoon, there it was!  Such a pretty sight.

Don’t Go

Pssst… have you heard?  Glitterati is having a rather lengthy & fabulous pose sale!  I stopped by and picked up ten new poses this past week, and I’m so glad I did because they are at such great prices right now.  The pose you see above is just one of the many I added to my collection.

I snagged my man, Mr. Arkansas Sorbet for a little photo session yesterday as well.  He was looking pretty sharp in a few new items he recently purchased and I just couldn’t help myself. Good pose? Great man? Yeah, you really can’t go wrong there! Sounds like the recipe for a great snapshot.

I’ll keep this short and sweet today.  For credits on everything we are wearing see below!

Paprika

 

So this week marks the very last Fashionably Late Event on the Chic Sim.  It has been a great event with many weeks of awesome designs by awesome designers.  I will be sad to see the event, as well as the Chic Sim close it’s doors.

One of the designers, owner of justB, Miss Bee Baroque (isn’t that a cute name?) returned for the event and released this beautiful jumpsuit.  Normally this sort of thing wouldn’t fit my style or my tastes, but I really loved it the moment I put it on.  The color is called “Paprika”. So pretty!

I paired the jumpsuit with a new release from one of my new favorite stores, [Echo].  Echo Requiem has been hard at work lately releasing quite a few new items, and this Stonage necklace in beautiful turquoise is just gorgeous.

The last thing i’ll note today is my hair.  It’s one of the new releases from TRUTH and it’s a non mesh release.  I love the color change headband.  Perfect accessory when you need an extra little touch of color for a wardrobe.

Have a good one.
