I can confidently say that spring has made it's way to Texas. Which means brighter days and Sunshine. Spring happens to be one of my favorite seasons because of the bright hues that light up the world. Green grass, pretty flowers ....and yes, even rain all make the smile appear. Plus spring gives us an opportunity to rebuild ourselves and create new beginnings, another reason to enjoy the season.
Today's look is trying to capture the fun vibrant colors of the season. I picked up a few goodies this morning while exploring. Mainly, this Yellow skirt from Boom called, First Date. I didn't realize how short it actually was and I felt slightly embarrassed seeing my legs exposed so I decided to pair it with slouchy socks. I also took a little trip back to Collab88 and picked up this cream colored sweater and heels. Just because I wanted to be a little cute today I decided to sport my cat ears. meow

"My heart is pounding but......It's just a conversation....You don't know me....I don't know you but I want to"- Take your Time, Sam Hunt
I feel like I need training wheels or a Sherpa to help me at me moment, perhaps even a Guru. It's been a very long time since I have been open to meeting anyone in SL, for you know... dating/socializing. Where exactly does one meet someone in SL and how does a shy person work up the courage to talk with someone? I feel it can be extremely nerve wrecking just to get a, "Hello...how are you?" out there. Telling someone that you want to get to know them better and want some of their time.....almost impossible.
I suppose I'm not the best at letting someone know I have a little interest in them. There is always that fear of rejection or not wanting to become a nuisance to someone. I just would love to be able to connect on a little more personal level, perhaps share a dance and take just a little of their time.
The Look- Take your time

I'm in a bit of a mood this Sunday, so I decided to whips up all sort of goodies for a sweet treat. so the question is....If I invited you over for Sunday brunch would you come?
Since today turned out to be an adventure filled day in SL I'm going to post a few more photos from my flickr stream. These photos are not edited so sorry for the uber crappy quality, but the fun captured in them is what I want to remember. I originally intend to blog only the photo above about Sunday brunch but my evening turned into so much more when I arrived at the World Water Day, Funk Party.
World Water Day Funk Party-
In our society we tend to take something we consider very basic for granted, Clean water. however for many finding clean and safe water is difficult. it impacts their health and quality of life. The water charity helps bring water to people who need it. For every $20 (or L$5,000) that is raised, Charity: Water can give someone access to safe water for years to come. Past contributions have funded over 16,000 projects that impact about 5 million people worldwide. That's pretty impressive.
now I know there is a lot of buzz right now in SL for RFL, but if you can manage to give just a little to the Charity: Water it will have such a big impact on people's lives. I hope you consider donating via the link below.
oh and one more fun shot from today.

See, I've been thinking it over........It's all just a little too much.......You see I've got this four leaf clover.......It's gotta bring a little luck - Abra Moore- Four Leaf Clover
First off, my apologies for not having an abundance of 4 leaf clovers in this post. I didn't want to overwhelm with St. Paddy's day gear.
I'm not normally a girl with red hair but since it's St. Paddy's day, Why not? Today I'm pulling a little luck from a four leaf clover to mix and match items from my wardrobe.so let's talk a little bit about this look. I sill have a big love for Tee*fy's Kira Off-Shoulder Dress, which I picked up at Collab88. I've managed to pick up several different colors in this dress which means I totally adore it. At only 88L a pop it's been impossible not to pick up one for every mood that strikes. I'm also sporting one of my favorite wigs from Magika, Gone. I suppose I enjoy this style because it reminds me of my RL hair. (the color not so much) Finally, the headpiece I'm wearing is one I pulled from my inventory. It's an oldie but a goodie, it's from Piddle, and it's called Southern Comfort Headpiece. So here is my look for the day.
Happy St. Patrick's day to you.

"To let me dangle at a cruel angle.....Oh my feet don't touch the floor.....Sometimes you're half in and then you're half out.....But never close the door.......What kind of man loves like this.....What kind of man"- Florence and the Machine- "What kind of man"
I've been on a kick listening to Florence and the Machine recently. My current song of the moment is "What kind of man" I'm so attracted to the lyrics up above plus musically I love how there is a build up and at this moment there is a transition from something soft to a harder rock sound. If you haven't heard Florence and the machine take the time to do so. They are a great band.
Now for the credits.....

So Collab 88 has a fun theme this month, Moonless nights, and it's a tribute to Twin Peaks. No no not that restaurant that hires buxom ladies, but the TV show from the early 1990s. If you haven't seen Twin Peaks the TV show yet, Don't worry Netflix has you covered. It's a cult class one can't miss. The more you watch the more secrets about Laura you discover..Lets just say Laura wasn't the good girl she appeared to be.
Now let's look at the styling credits.

Today I'm showcasing some goodies that I recently acquired....and some are a bit naughty in nature. Let's start at the top and work our way down.
I picked up this wig from The Arcade gacha event. Clawtooth designed this beautiful side swept pony tail that includes flowers. Both the hair color and flowers are controlled by a Hud and can be changed to suit your styling needs.
I then headed to Collab88 and picked up this cute lingerie set from one of my long time favorite designers, Nylon Pinkney of Nylon Outfitters. I have been a fan of Nylon's creations since I first joined SL back in 2006/2007. I must own pretty close to everything she has created. This lingerie set I am wearing comes with both system layer clothing as well as appliers for the Maitreya body, which is a total plus for anyone who is switching to a mesh body.
Finally I made my way to the naughty part of SL and picked up a few things i found in Strawberry Singh's recent post. The Whore Couture Fair is currently showcasing some well made naughty clothing, poses, shoes, skins in SL. Since, I'm not particularity naughty (stop laughing) I didn't pick up too many goodies; however, I might go back and grab a few things for some upcoming photos.
Exposure, owned by RubyStarlight Writer, an awesome pose creator, designed a set of poses for the Red Light District. oooh yea, it's that naughty part of Amsterdam we hear so much about. I'm thrilled that Ruby made this set because it's a total dream come true. There are a 13 poses included in this set and multiple people can use it at once. I feel it will make for a really fun evening if I could get together a group of friends and TP in a guy or two for a photo shoot. It could make a great prop for a "Red light district" party.....hmmmm...that's a thought.
Last, but certainly not least are the gorgeous shoes designed by Duncan Giano. Open toes and long wooden heels...Aubrey is a combination of classy and sexy. They remind me of a pair of shoes I coveted during my late teens. The ones my mother wouldn't let me wear, but mamma if you could see me now in these heels. Aubrey is available in 8 different colors and well worth the purchase. They work with several mesh bodies; Maitreya, Belleza, The Mesh Project even Slink feet.
As for today's post title, well....I have to admit I was tuning into my "Bells Booty" playlist, and Eminem's, "Ass like that"popped up while i was editing the photo. (hides face in shame, I know) I will spare you the youtube link and musical lyrics for this post.
