We are the bend before the break

We are the dead ones,
We are the lost cause,
We are the bend before the break,
Our steps seal our fate....

So I've been dying to put together something using the super cute shirt I snagged from Dernier Cri in this week's Project Themeory.  The shirt is still available at the PT price (I checked just a few minutes ago), so go and grab it before it disappears!

And we'll hide out in private rooms,
With the latest dictionary of today's who's who,
They'll get you anything with that evil smile,
Everybodys got a drug dealer on speed dial..

Seasons Hunt Fun

Two posts in one day, look out... and yes, i know my eyes look kinda freaky, SL is being a pain and I can't focus them for love nor money today so lets just move right along to the good stuff.

The Seasons Hunt is upon us and there are scrummy treats to be had.  Most of the leaves are relatively easy to find, as long as they haven't been shrunk to within an inch of their pixel life but even then, the group is super helpful.  So go, hunt and enjoy...

With a little sweet and simple numbing me,
Yeah, stumble til you crawl,
Sinking into sweet uncertainty...

Plurky Blogger Challenge - It's all in the Background

This week's challenge is all about backgrounds which I think is kinda cool. So many people put in countless hours to bring the world of SL alive and often, I don't think they get the credit they deserve. Sooo with that in mind, I knew as soon as this challenge rolled around that I would be taking my photos at Pixel Dreams. If you have not seen this sim, you are missing out!

Click to see full sized picture
The whole sim is very rustic country, with broken down shacks, dilapidated cars and sun burnt grass as far as the eye can see. A little more exploration though will reveal beautiful bridges, rivers and lots of little hidy holes that make wandering around fun and interesting. Seriously, I could spend countless hours here..

And, just in case you are interested, here is what I'm wearing:

So, if you haven't already, go and visit Pixel Dreams, not only is it a stunning build all around, it's also the home to Pixel Mode Shoes which are totally scrummy!

I guess that's just the cowboy in me

The urge to run, the restlessness,
The heart of stone I sometimes get,
The things I've done for foolish pride,
The me that's never satisfied,
The face that's in the mirror when I don't like what I see,
I guess that's just the cowboy in me....

I have a secret....I'm a closet country music fan and had the very fortunate experience of getting to see Mister Tim McGraw live this past friday.  So with that in mind, I felt like channeling my inner country girl and this is what came out the other end... it's sort of country-esq...maybe... well at the very least it's comfy and perfect for the coolish weather we have been having the last few days...

Love is evol, spell it backwards, I'll show ya

Cause you just did the impossible, gained my trust,
Don't play games, it'll be dangerous if you fuck me over,
Cause if I get burnt, im'a show what's it's like to hurt,
Cause I've been treated like dirt befor'ya
And love is evol, spell it backwards, I'll show ya...

And all I can say is come closer,
Take a deep breath and jump,
Then fall into me...

Deep and Meaningless

Yeah you,  I guess you had another direction,
And leaving me with nothing but a dead connection,
You still walked away leaving me in this mess,
My love for you is deep and meaningless...

Some newness out in the world today..yay!  First off there is the delightful Atomic VIP gift for September.  You do have to pay $250L to join this group, but it's totally worth it!  Then we have some more wonderful poses by !Dont Freak Out and Flowey, who have collaborated to bring us the Flutter <3 Willa series.  I love the How I Met Your Mother Reference in this pose pack but more importantly I adore the poses both of these ladies make, so I hope this won't be their first and last collaboration.  Last but definitely not least, Coco released these gorgeous boots this morning and I was all over them the minute I got the notecard.  So go...spend....enjoy...

Plurky Blogger Challenge Bonus Colour Round - Red

Now I know up there in the Northern Hemisphere winter is heading your way and everyone will be pulling out their woollies any day now, but, down here in the Southern one we are, finally, heading toward what I hope will be a beautiful summer!  With that in mind, and the fact that I finally start vacation today I had to celebrate with a beachy themed red outfit for this bonus round.  Bring on those lovely warm days and brilliant blue sky!

Plurky Blogger Challenge 2 - Gone But Not Forgotten

This one was haaaaard, so hard in fact that I had to bend the rules just slightly to include a brand that is almost gone :(  The reason for the lateness of this post, given that the challenge actually started on Sunday, is that I've been searching everywhere to see if (madsy) still exists. I can't find it anywhere, so I think I'm safe to use this jacket, which I have loved from the minute I bought it.  Anyway, it's late and I'm tired so I'm keeping this post short and sweet.  To the designers, thank you for enriching the fabric of our Second Lives while you did....gone (or almost) but not forgotten:

Project Donate

As you may be aware Project Donate started today, I can not stress enough what an important cause this event is donating to.  You can find out more about here .  In short, funds raised through this event will be donated to UNICEF to help the victims of the devastating floods in Pakistan.  If you aren't aware of what has happened there, I urge you to do some research and then please, give generously.

Many designers have come together to offer up goods for your donation, with many of them contributing 100% of their profits to the charity.  Here is just a sampling of a few things I picked up:

Don't for one second think you can't make a difference, united we have the power to help people who are in desperate need.  So please, go visit Project Donate and give with your heart, not your head.

Image Two: Shirt - *Boom*/Boom - Flash Appeal Top
Image Three: Hair - > Truth < /Truth - Aloha
Image Four: Shirt - [AddiCt] / Addict - Jersey Racerback Black Bird

*All of the above is available at Project Donate, with most funds, if not all, being donated

Sometimes hunts pay off

I did the platinum hunt a few weeks back and stumbled across this little store called Boho.  I'm relatively sure Boho is a fairly new store and I have to say I find their fashion totally appealing!  I'm usually a jeans and shirt sort of girl but every now and again I like to bust out my inner girlie girl and the ultra feminine bohemian fashions at Boho certainly called to my girlie side.

I've also been playing around with a little inworld photography lately as I'm completely bored with a plain old white background.  I definitely still have a lot to learn but I don't think this shot came out too badly, largely due the beautiful sim it was shot on so onto the good stuff...
