Bandana Day

Hair Fair is sadly coming to an end and as most of you all know, today is Bandana Day. This day is we remove our hair to honor those who are suffering with cancer right now and wear a bandana. There were tons of beautifully made bandanas to purchase at this wonderful event but this one by Ohmai was so gorgeous that I chose it for my bandana today along with a lot of other people on SL. If you haven't been to this event yet, you still have a few hours. Remember that all sales of the bandanas go towards Wigs for Kids so be sure to run over and get your own bandana and support an awesome charity!

Also, if you haven't heard, Beetlebones has reopened and has a bunch of new goodies in her store. My beautifully done dress is one of these releases and comes in a variety of colors. I love the simpleness to this dress so much and felt like it went perfectly with my bandana so I just had to show it off. I paired it with Filthy's newest release Oceanne which I will show you more of in my next post.

Since we are removing our hair, I thought it was apt to wear the browless version of this skin and ditch my lashes today because as you know chemotherapy isn't selective and cancer patients lose all of the hair on their body, not just the hair on their head. I hope that anyone who is reading this post who may be affected by this tragic illness knows that your spirit shines through in your strength and that makes you beautiful. <3

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
"'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door-
                Only this, and nothing more."

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow;- vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow- sorrow for the lost Lenore-
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore-
                Nameless here for evermore.

And the silken, sad, uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me- filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating,
"'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door-
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door;-
                This it is, and nothing more."

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
"Sir," said I, "or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
That I scarce was sure I heard you"- here I opened wide the door;-
                Darkness there, and nothing more.

Deep into the darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word,
Lenore?, This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word,
"Lenore!" Merely this, and nothing more.

Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping, something louder than before,
"Surely," said I, "surely, that is something at my window lattice.
Let me see, then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore.
Let my heart be still a moment, and this mystery explore.
" 'Tis the wind, and nothing more."

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately raven, of the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door.
Perched upon a bust of Pallas, just above my chamber door,
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
"Though thy crest be shorn and shaven thou," I said, "art sure no craven,
Ghastly, grim, and ancient raven, wandering from the nightly shore.
Tell me what the lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore."
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."

From "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe

Make Sure To Build Your Heart Brick By Boring Break

She lives in a fairy tale
Somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell
Of a world that she's left behind
It's all about the exposure, the lens, I told her
The angles are all wrong now
She's ripping wings off of butterflies

Keep your feet on the ground
When your head's in the clouds

Well go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle
Go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle

Ba-da ba ba-da ba ba-da

So one day, he found her crying
Coiled up on the dirty ground
Her prince finally came to save her
And the rest she can figure out
But it was a trick
And the clock struck twelve
Well make sure
To build your heart brick by boring brick
Or the wolf's gonna blow it down

Keep your feet on the ground
When your head's in the clouds

Well go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle
Go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
We'll bury the castle, bury the castle, whoa, whoa

Well you built up a world of magic
Because your real life is tragic
Yeah you built up a world of magic

If it's not real
You can't hold it in your hand
You can't feel it with your heart
And I won't believe it
But if it's true
You can see it with your eyes
Oh, even in the dark
And that's where I want to be, yeah

Go get your shovel (You'll be better off without me)
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle (ooh), bury the castle
Go get your shovel (You'll be better off without me)
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle (ooh), bury the castle

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

As soon as I saw this sequined star tea length gow from Miamai for Donna Flora, I knew I had to have it. I love anything with stars and this dress just appealed to that love. It's available in 6 pretty colors and materials ready plus all of the proceeds of its sales will go towards the Love Donna Flora fundraiser so be sure to head over to Donna Flora and pick this pretty girl up.

The rest of my look is goodies I've picked up yesterday around the grid. Ison has out the prettiest updo for Hair Fair, Glam Affair is having a 100L sale on all of its older skins, and Gos Boutique has two pairs of heels out for the price of one at The Liaison Collaborative. As you can see, it was a busy day of shopping for me.

Also, I fell in love with these bubbles hanging from the trees at the newly opened Savoir Faire sim and just had to snap a pic underneath them. This sim is gorgeously done and open to the public so head on over there and snap your own pretty pics.

It's a Glam Affair Intriguing Questions Meme

As most of you all know, I'm a huge fan of Glam Affair. I think that every skin Aida puts out is flawless and I drool over most of her pics. The Liaison Collaborative opened today and Glam Affair released the Katya skin in 6 pretty makeups. I had to run right over and grab one. While playing with my new Tram hair from Hair Fair, I realized I had a pretty blonde shade so I decided to do some experimenting and made myself a cool blonde. I rarely go blonde but I do like this skin/hair combination so maybe blonde is in the future more for me. I liked the look so much that I had to snap a pic and use Aida's photo editing as inspiration for my vanity shot.

And since it's Monday, I am also using this post to do Berry's Intriguing Question Meme. I love Berry's memes because they give all of us participants the opportunity to open up a little more to our readers. If you're interested in doing the meme, you can check out Berry's blog post here for a list of the questions.

1. How do you deal with criticism? Oh, I hate hate hate criticism and I'll be the first to admit that I don't take it happily. I get irritated and annoyed by anyone who offers me criticism. I know that it's a negative personality trait of mine but I can't help who I am. I do try not to get snippy when someone offers me unsolicited advice and after the initial irritation wears off, I'll try to consider their opinion or viewpoint and sometimes I'll even admit the person offering the criticism was right.
2. What’s the most infuriating thing other SL residents do? There are too many for me to list and I'm kind of dealing with the aftermaths of one of these things right now so I really don't want to talk much about the answers to this question.
3. Which SL resident would you most like to have lunch with and why? My partner, Carter! Someone please fly me to England so I can have lunch with him. I'll love you very much! I don't think I need to give reasons why. They are kind of obvious but I'll give them anyway! We have amazing chemistry and the ability to talk for hours plus he's super sweet and witty. I know that this chemistry would be even greater if we were face to face. Plus, I'd give anything to be able to wrap my arms around him and give him a big hug.
4. Who would you say is your “anti” role model? Someone who serves as a warning rather than an inspiration? Ahh, I'd love to give names but I won't. Liars, users, people who play the victim, fake friends who will backstab or insult you the minute they can, slutty girls who need to have a SL man, egomaniacs...need I go on?
5. What was something you used to enjoy, but was ruined for you? SL related? Nothing really. Everything remains the same. I don't think anything's been ruined for me but I have grown tired of some things.
6. What’s something you want to do that you’d be embarrassed to tell other people about? Umm, I silently stalk my SL friend's profiles every few days to make sure I haven't missed anything important going on in their lives that they may have added to their profile.
7. What’s the oddest term of endearment you’ve ever used or that someone’s used for you? Lol! I'm sure that I've forgotten some of them but I do recall someone calling me their "pocket princess" last week! *sticks my tongue out at this person in case they are reading this*
8. Have you ever fallen in love with another SL resident? Yes and I'm still in love with him :)
9. Describe a time/event in your slife that you’re nostalgic for. Me and my closest gf on SL, Kimbra, used to go trolling at sex sims a lot last year. We used to die laughing at the lame pickup attempts the guys that used to frequent these places would throw at us and would paste our crazy answers to them back and forth to each other. They were fun times and I miss them but RL changes things so we don't have as much time to hang out together.

10. What’s something sweet you’d like someone to do for you? Just be honest with me and talk to me. Keeping it real with me is the sweetest thing you can do for me.

Teeny Weeny Polka Dot Bikini

Hi readers! I've got lots of newness to show off to you. The newly reopened Filthy has out a second version of their adorable Alicia skin. This skin comes with tons of extras and I think it has a cute youthful face so be sure to go to Filthy and check it out. I paired it with one of my favorite hairs from Lamb at Hair Fair. I love the casual waves and length of this baby so much.

I'm also showing off this sexy retro bikini that is out at Blacklace that is one of this week's TGIF specials. This hot little number is only 99L along with the soft eyeshadow I'm wearing. If you're looking for some summer steals, be sure to check out Blacklace and Blacklace Beauty!

Finally if you've read my SL bestie, Kimbra's blog, Iridescent Rainbows, you'll notice she mentioned she was using one of my WL's. I've decided that I'd share it off with the rest of you since she had such nice things to say about it. If you'd like to download, it, be sure to keep reading because we both think it's really pretty! I used it in this post too!

Cause I'm A Gypsy ~ A Hair Fair Sneak Peek

Hair Fair opens in less than 45 minutes and if you're like me, you've been marking the calender down waiting for this event in anticipation. Running from July 13th to July 23rd, Hair Fair marks its 8th year raising money for the charity, Wigs for Kids. Each designer who is in this event has generously decided to donate a portion of their hair's sales just for this charity so of course, all of us non designers can help support this wonderful cause by buying lots and lots of hair.

I'm always excited to see all of the different styles out there and I purchased many hairs tonight from a variety of different stores but I wanted to show off this gypsylike style from Olive called Elisa first. Olive is launching its hair line at this event and has out 4 fun hair styles guaranteed to suit anyone's taste. I instantly fell in love with this hairdo because I love hair accessories and this one features a quirky little headband. Isn't it adorable? Yep, I knew you'd agree so be sure to save some lindens and check out Olive's little booth at this event.

I Hate That Stupid Old Pickup Truck

State the obvious, 
I didn't get my perfect fantasy
I realize you love yourself more than you could ever love me
So go and tell your friends that I'm obsessive and crazy
That's fine you won't mind if I say
And by the way

I hate that
Stupid old pickup truck
You never let me drive
You're a redneck heartbreak
Who's really bad at lying
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
As far as I'm concerned you're
Just another picture to burn

There's no time for tears,
I'm just sitting here
Planning my revenge
There's nothing stopping me
From going out with all of your best friends
And if you come around saying sorry to me
My daddy's gonna show you how sorry you'll be

'Cause I hate that
Stupid old pickup truck
You never let me drive
You're a redneck heartbreak
Who's really bad at lying
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
As far as I'm concerned you're
Just another picture to burn

I Cannot Be Until You're Resting Here With Me

Yep! The title is kind of how I'm feeling right now over a certain someone special. I wish he were here with me because I love him so much! Anyways, I've got some exciting news for you all! Filthy skins is back and has released a new skin called Alicia. Alicia has a soft face and comes in 5 tones each packed with loads of makeup layer extras like freckles, eye shadows, and lipsticks. Plus, Alexandra Barcelos has jumped on the Lola Tango train and also has made breast appliers for Alicia. I just had to put on this pretty skin and show her off to you along with this gorgeous flowy dress from Baiastice that is available at this round of Fameshed.

I've also got a few fabulous freebies you can pick up around the grid. Sweet Leonard has out this beautifully done pearl flower necklace and ring set for the Fist Pump With the Best hunt and Nani Poses has out an 8 pack of versatile, summer themed poses for the Endless Summer Hunt. Also, don't forget to pick up Ikon's group gift this weekend. It's a pair of his newly released Ascension eyes in a luminescent gold color. Gotta love the generosity of these designers!

Also, I went exploring today at Kingdom of Jordan and as you can see from the pictures above, this sim is definitely worth checking out so when you're done admiring more of Filthy's newest release of Alicia below, be sure to grab the LM to this fantastic location.

I Just Ride

I've been out on that open road 
You can be my full time, daddy 
White and gold 
Singing blues has been getting old 
You can be my full time, baby 
Hot or cold 

Don't break me down 
I've been traveling too long 
I've been trying too hard 
With one pretty song 

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast 
I am alone in the night 
Been trying hard not to get into trouble, but I 
I've got a war in my mind 
So, I just ride 

Dying young and I'm playing hard 
That's the way my father made his life an art 
Drink all day and we talk 'til dark 
That's the way the road dogs do it, ride 'til dark. 

Don't leave me now 
Don't say good bye 
Don't turn around 
Leave me high and dry 

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast 
I am alone in the night 
Been trying hard not to get in trouble, but I 
I've got a war in my mind 
I just ride 

I’m tired of feeling like I’m f*cking crazy
I’m tired of driving ‘til I see stars in my eyes
It’s all I’ve got to keep myself sane, baby
So I just ride, I just ride

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast 
I am alone in the night 
Been trying hard not to get in trouble, but I 
I've got a war in my mind 
I just ride

Special thanks to my ex wife, Nikki Wildmist, for making these poses specially for me.
