“Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.” – Aristotle
One of the most beautiful aspects of Second Life is the opportunity to meet really wonderful people all over the world. I have done just that. I’ve met people who span the globe, and if given the opportunity would be able to have coffee in some little cafe with some really fantastic friends, at so many different locations around the world.
Not only here in my Second Life have I met my real life love in April of 2009 (Mr. Arkansas Sorbet), but I’ve also had the opportunity to meet my very best friend as well. Someone who makes me a better human being in nearly all aspects of my life. That person is Mr. Remy Stringfellow. Remy is supportive, filled with kindness, and is the type of person who offers a friendship you spend your whole life searching for. Someone who is honest, hard working, and dedicates his time and energy into making a friendship what it’s really supposed to be about. I am absurdly lucky to have a friendship like his in my life. Quite honestly, I’m very lucky to have all kinds of friendships that I have here in my Second Life.
My favorite aspect of the Second Life Community is the growth I’ve received from it. I’ve learned so much about myself…and not all of it positive. I’ve learned traits about myself that I need to change and work on, and I’ve also learned the things that make me tick. The aspects of my personality that lead to my passions, and the things I truly love. My favorite aspect of all though, are the relationships I’ve made here, and I am forever grateful for all of them, especially the relationship with my very best friend. People say Second Life is just a game, but for many of us it’s not. It’s a community, and quite often a way of life. For me, it is just an extension of my real life. A part of who I have become.
Among all of the wonderful things about Remy, he’s supportive enough to go on a shopping trip and then pose for a photograph for me. His patience is quite astounding because I take forever at both of these tasks….and Im sure that guitar was starting to get a bit heavy. Please feel free to check out below where a few of the items are from that he’s showcasing in the pho.

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” – Audrey Hepburn
I was so flattered when I posted this photo on my plurk yesterday and my dear friend Chance Raynier commented and said I looked like Audrey Hepburn! That is the ultimate compliment. Audrey Hepburn with her style and grace, she was quite the fashion icon.
You know, I didn’t wake up this morning feeling like a Hollywood star but I did wake up feeling pretty decent. I probably have last night to thank for that. Last night at The Pixel Bean we had a mellow evening around the campfire. Here comes a shameless plug, but if you are looking for a really great place to chill and unwind and meet really amazing people The Pixel Bean is certainly the place to do it. It blows my mind what this place has turned into. It’s my pride and joy. I really am so proud of what it has become. Some of the nicest, most fun, crazy, amazing people can be found at our little coffeehouse, and the sim (even though still unfinished) has some great places to explore. Bowie Zeplin did a really fantastic recap on her blog about last night. It’s worth checking out!
Anyway, enough of my rambling and onto what you probably came here to read about! What I’m wearing! Yesterday I was out on the hunt with my best friend trying to find him some new hairstyles. We’ve failed time and time again to find him anything that’s better than what he has right now, but each time we go out shopping I always end up finding something for myself! So at least there is some kind of win that comes out of our shopping trips right? We were over at Anaphora when across the room I saw a really great hairstyle and hat that caught my attention.
I. Love. This. Hat. I feel a little bit snobby in it, but I think it’s absolutely fantastic and fashion filled. I didn’t have to do any adjusting to it either which really made me happy. I paired it with a really sexy summer tank from JLZ Designs that I thought went really well with it, and I quickly headed out the door for a trip to the beach!

I’ve so enjoyed all the “apocalyptic” talk that people have thrown around with all this rapture talk taking place over the past week. My favorite is any talk having to do with zombies because quite frankly it’s all so comical and amusing. S H I N E recently came out with a military inspired collection of goodies, and all I kept thinking about was dressing up in a few of the beautiful pieces of attire and go running through my favorite run down apocalyptic sim.
I ventured over to one of my favorite places on the grid, Innsmouth to snap some photos in a few of S H I N E ‘s new items. They do such a fantastic job with detail. Everything from the stars on the hat, to the stitching on this top caught my attention. The button adornments on these olive shorts were also really fantastic.
Unfortunately on my journey over to Innsmouth I didn’t come across any zombies…but I did hear a few unsettling noises.

A new collection from the store L’Abel is being released this upcoming Saturday the 28th, and I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to share with you one of my favorite pieces from the beautiful country themed collection! Above I am wearing the Country Chic Savannah Pink Maxi Dress! The way the long skirting falls along my body and flows when I walk is absolutely perfect. The textures are also incredibly lively and beautiful. This dress is certainly a piece of apparel that I will keep in my inventory for a long time to come. Quite honestly the whole collection is great. Each bringing a little countryside flair to your wardrobe for the summertime. Make sure to stop in L’Abel on Saturday to get pieces from this really lovely collection.
I paired the brand new Aves Ligneus necklace from KOSH with my outfit for today. It’s a really lovely add to my jewelry collection. The detailed adornments and bird pattern on the necklace are perfect, as well as the texturing on this. It came with a pair of earrings as well that were quite lovely. Bowie Zeplin did a really fantastic piece on both the earrings and the necklace so make sure to duck over to her blog to check them out. She goes into quite a bit of detail on both and showcases them beautifully!
I got to do some photography over at the Calas Galadhon Park today which I spoke about in a previous entry. I was really excited to duck over there. I thought the floral dress from L’Abel would be the perfect item to photograph in the wilderness & meadows.
Finally, I must tell you about the pose I used and where it is from. There is a new pose store on the scene and it is brimming with awesomeness. It’s called Pose Job. There tagline is “Poses that don’t Blow” which I thought was incredibly cute. They adorable and sweet Bellastarr Fhang creates such great poses, and you should really duck over and check them out. This one made me feel as if I was basking in the sun on a warm spring day.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a splendid weekend. Mine was great! I even snuck in a day at the beach as you can see above! What an adorkable day it was!
Adorkable Poses just released this really fantastic beach set of poses. What I really love about Adorkable Peapod’s pose sets is her attention to detail. She takes the time to include mirrored poses as well as pose balls for you to use when needed. The set includes both male and female poses as well. It’s the perfect accessory for a day at the beach in Second Life.
My day at the beach would not be complete without this classic suit from Ingenue. I cannot get over the class and style this store has. This swimsuit is an instant classic. It’s not shown in the photo but it has adorable ruffles on the butt too! Betty Doyle has done it again with her incredible taste and eye for beautiful vintage inspired apparel!
Last, but never least, I thought the new TRUTH release Miku was one of his more unique styles he’s released in recent months. The little bow on top was such a nice touch and you can turn it on and off and change the colors. The whole look felt very girly and innocent!
I hope each and every one of you has a fantastic start to your week. Don’t sweat the little things, and enjoy each moment as it comes. xoxo.
