#470 Life is a shipwreck……

.....but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats - Voltaire

Annie Melson has outdone herself again with this lovely new top for The Liaison Collaborative.   As well as a plethora of great colours there are also different textures - ribbed,  floral and my favourite below, which has galaxy-like texturing.  The Libran in me made it impossible for me to choose which top to wear for this post, so I have showed you a selection.  I have teamed the top with Annie's designer jeans which are a previous release.  

Showing various tops off gave me the opportunity to show a few different poses from "Stumped", Nantra's new pose prop, also available at The Liaison Collaborative.  The stump is texture change and contains 12 quality poses.

I took these pics in the grounds of my new home (I hear the chorus of "not another one!"), and I am really excited to be starting a new chapter in my sl-life.  This last 18 months has been really tough but it has taught me many things.… Read the restPost #470

Fun and Fashion For A Great Cause – Featuring NEW Fashion For Life: Baboom, Glint & alskametro; Featuring NEW Skin Fair October’s 4Seasons

October's 4Seasons kicks off Skin Fair 2016 today, just in time for fun this weekend. My favorite skin designer so talented and capable and maker of stunning skins takes the helm this year as primary sponsor, collaborating to bring you the best skin fair ever. This natural skin tone shown today is one of many reasons I love October's 4Seasons. I can wear it and then layer other tattoos, makeups or anything else creative I might find along my SL journey. In my Catalina Lily Skin package, I have five makeup choices, this natural skin, some cleavage options, eyebrow color choices, and trim choices for that other delicate hair that some find so enticing.With the natural skin layer, I was able to add new items from the Fashion For Life event that's continuing this weekend. alaskametro created both the Extreme Wing II shadow and the Nadia lipstick as part of their support for the charity event designed to help raise money for the cure for cancer. I'm also modeling the new Linette Peplum Top in Black and Mira Leather Pants in Grey from Baboom and .:Glint:.'s Multi Colored Oval Charm Earrings and the Unisex Time To Heal Necklace, each items created to support this fashionable fun charity event.… Read the rest


I am back with another Skin Fair item, this time from a designer that I should blog more often because I love his skins. !Imabee has recently gotten into making appliers for the LeLutka heads so I wanted to show what they have available at skin fair this year. The Charlotte skin comes in three tones. His […] The post !Imabee by Strawberry Singh appeared first on StrawberrySingh.com.

#469 You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it…..

.....Robin Williams

This stunning gown is from Posh Pixels for Fashion for Life - the chest piece, sleeves, arm pieces, head piece and flexi add-ons are all included with the gown.  The gown itself is a rich deep velvety purple, and for some reason I ran with the purple theme - I have done this in a previous post.  I think I must have a "thing" for purple, because I never get the urge to do so with any other colour!  The gown is spectacular, and what could be better thank buying it, knowing that you were doing your bit to help such a wonderful cause.

It is always hard finding hair that will work with elaborate hats or head pieces, but luckily I had seen this Amacci hair in their mainstore last week - and I was right, it is absolute perfection!   I have deliberately not worn any jewellery to let the headpiece take centre stage.

If an item is for sale at an event, I give the slurl to that event, but in case this blog post is read after the event has finished, I also include the slurl to the mainstore.

Falling into a Burrito

Hello Readers! I have been a busy bee in and out of SL. Life is good, no complaints here, though I do miss blogging regularly. Today I had one of those blogging opportunities and had to capitalize on it. With all the activity in my lives right now, it is a challenge to get those quiet times where I can just be creative…those are times I need in order to style and blog with any decency at all. After a morning of some styling I scratched my creative itch. Sadly it wasn’t for anything I could share on my blog, as it was a casting styling, but trust me if I am not selected I will show everyone! At the tail end of the process I had one of my newest friends in SL come into my ims. I have to say that after 8 years in SL I am always pleased when I can make new friends. This particular friend is a pose maker. I had just bought ALL his poses before meeting him (thanks Miele Tarantal)  and once we had met we hit it off like we had been pals for years. I love when that happens. In our initial conversation, after I had fangirled all over his ims praising his poses and witty names of them (I love clever people), Chance Greatrix of DARE poses promised me his next pose sets on the house.… Read the restFalling into Bed

Fashion For Life Waiting For You and Your Support – Featuring FFL Designer Feyline Fashions

Fashion For Life is in full swing! Feyline Fashions is just one of many amazing designers who have joined together in this annual push towards the goal of finding Cancer's cure. Fashion For Life in Second Life works together with #RelayForLife and the #AmericanCancerSociety to raise money for cancer research and finding the cure for cancer, a dream everyone everywhere can get behind. Be a part by shopping at this event. A portion of every purchase goes directly to this charity.I used to love role-play for hours. I hate to say how many hours (meeps) but it was so much fun to immerse myself in the vivid imagination of peers, book creators, movie creators, whoever the founder of the idea was for said role-play environment, and then interact. It's been a decade now since I did so, but when I put on Feyline Fashions Joslyne Sunset, memories flooded back to me. I would have found such an outfit perfect for so many themes.

This outfit is one of several Feyline Fashions has at this year's Fashion For Life event.… Read the rest

#467 Stand & Deliver!

Here is another outfit from the many fantastic offerings at Fashion for Life which opens tomorrow.  I have chosen to show you the Rose FFL version of this outfit, but it comes in a selection of beautiful colour sets.  Shani has a number of other items for sale but when I saw this outfit, I just had to wear it.    There is a little "nip slip" in the corset, so as my blog is pg I used strategically placed hair to cover up and not shock my audience :).

My boots are another "hot off the shoe press" from KC Couture - I will show them again in closer detail, but I wanted to share them now as they are on promo on the marketplace for just 79L - this is a limited offer so grab them here now before the promo ends.  
The Outer Garden, where I took these pics, is a stunningly beautiful serene white sim, and might seem a bit of a strange choice for this outfit.  I had been visiting gothic sims but none of them worked for me, however when I landed here I really liked the contrast and the sense of incongruence.… Read the rest

It’s Time To Support Something Special – Fashion For Life 2016 – Featuring Shani and Featuring Chop Zuey

 "Relay For Life. Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life event is a life-changing experience that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to Celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, Remember loved ones lost, and Fight Back against the disease."There are thousands of ways to get involved in civic minded culturally now and relevant interests in Second Life. One of the best ways in my opinion is to get involved with charitable events. At this time of year, everyone kicks it into high gear as they prepare for the phenomenal Fashion For Life event. Each year members of Second Life, the designers and models, the bloggers and every single valued customer all work together to raise money for Relay For Life.

#465 First "Sneak Peek" at goodies coming to Fashion for Life soon

On 6 March, Fashion for Life in support of Relay for Life open their 10th anniversary event with the theme of "That's Entertainment".  I always like knowing my lindens are going to a special cause, and find it a very good reason to spend spend spend - I hope you feel the same and will spend spend spend at FFL!  I will add the slurl when the sims open - yes, sims - 10 of 'em!

The first sneak peek I am showing you is a dress I am totally in love with, from a designer I have heard of but must admit to never checking out.  The designer is Plowwies and the reason I have not visited is that I thought they only made jammies (pyjamas if you are posh :) ) - and I don't wear jammies in either life.  Plowwies do indeed have some cute jammies available at FFL, and also a cute critter gacha, but they also have this fantastic dress.  It comes with a hud allowing you to change multiple faces independently, and the colour choices are absolutely gorgeous.  

My shoes (close up below) are brand new from Glamistry and I think they just might be my favourite ever pair of Glamistry shoes.… Read the rest
