How Macabre

I finished The Macabre Hunt last night.  Well, when I say 'finished' I mean I did all the ones I could find.  I am getting so lazy these days.  If it is too hard I give up and move on.

Photo Comp

I don't often enter photo competitions because I don't like asking my friends to vote for me, but in tthe case of this event I made an exception.  That is because the cause is worthwhile.  It is for Feed a Smile and 100% of the money raised in this fundraiser goes to helping children in Africa.

Each vote is 25L, but it is all going to make someone else smile.  That will make me smile too!

So, if you are wondering how to support this event then whip over to the Loveli Feed a Smile sim and vote for me (or any other pic you like!).  Here is the pic I submitted.

D for Delightful

I will confess that I lay awake last night sorting this outfit in my head.  That frightens me just a bit.  I had shoes on when I was working out this pic yesterday, but I knew they weren't right.  Then in the depths of the night I realised that cowboy boots would be perfect.  Whew!

Anyway, today's post is brought to you by the letter D!

(NB:  The Jane skirt is mesh, so just making you aware that if you haven't got a mesh enabled viewer you won't enjoy this skirt as much as I do!)



My apologies for my slackness yesterday!  I am a bad, bad blogger.  I would like it to be known that I did try, but photo..crashes...blah blah, you have heard it all before.

But I am here today and I have some great items and great news!

The first two items are from PurpleMoon and they have a sale!  Yes, you heard that right.  The sale items have sale tags on them and they are all over the store and in the new Boho area.  Plenty of goodies for you to grab. The two items I am showing are both in the sale.

School is Back

I saw a funny sign on the web.  It basically said:

School starts Sept 2nd
Resistance is Futile

I love that!  

This week's SUYS items were all about school and I know I am late, but these items are still out, so race and get them for 150L before the price changes.

The school uniform is from RoTtEn DeFiAnCe and is the boys version.

Autumn Is Here

A great combo for you today.  Some new items at Jane amidst some awesome autumn items from the House and Garden Falling Leaves Hunt.

Now remember the items from Jane are MESH so don't go racing over to buy them if you don't have a mesh-enabled viewer.

The tanks and leggings are also from Jane, but are not mesh, so anyone can grab them!

The skin I am wearing is from Belleza and is Chloe Pale.  It was a group gift and a sample of their new line.

The scenes I am in is from The Strawberry Box and is a hunt item in the Falling Leaves Hunt.  I placed it inside the A.D.D Andel Sky Platform I bought for 100L the other day.

Hair is from Dura and is Blonde 03 and the earrings are from Eluzion and are called Shaska (group gift)

Today at Feed a Smile

Today's event at the Feed a Smile fundraiser are as follows:

4-5pm ReggieSunset Rookswood (LIVE acoustic)
5-7pm DJ Liata Exonar (awesome DJ!)

Also make sure you go and vote in the Photo Comp that I am in.  Take the time to look at all the great photos.  It is 25L per vote, but ALL of that money goes to Live and Learn in Kenya NGO which is is a non-profit, charity organisation working to aid the impoverished people – especially the children - living in Kenya.  Go HERE to vote.

The theme was Africa, so here is the pic that I entered:



One of my fave TV characters at the moment is Brick from The Middle.  That has absolutely nothing to do with the colour for today, but it is good that we share and get to know each other. (/me whispers "Get to know each other").

Now for those of you who don't watch the show, you will not get the joke above, so just frown and carry on.  To those of you who do watch the show that was funny!

Ok, enough frivolity.  Today I am wearing Brick Red for the Blogger Colour Challenge.  I am, as usual, late getting this done, but I will blame it on the fact that I only managed to do one pic yesterday and the any othe rattempts met with severe crashes.  It has led me to believe that SL Saturday is my day off!

Anyhoooo, here is what I came up with for Brick Red.  I took three pics and couldn't narrow it down, so you have them all.  I like these cos they show my tomboy side, which is me as a kid.

Hair:  (Explicit) - The Siren - Auburn (past hunt item - closed store)
Dirt:  Miss Shippes Studio - Digging in the Dirt (past hunt item)
Shirt:  Coco Designs- Shirt and Parka - Check Red (Group Gift)
Tank:  Jane - Intrinsic Tank - Red Delicious
Jeans:  RoTtEn DeFiAnCe - Low Rise Grunge - Flag
Sneakers:  HOC Industries - HOCs Lowtops - Bloody
Pose Scene:  Glitterati - Garage


C is for Comfortable

This my C photo for the Alphabet Challenge.  I decided it was all about comfort and I also wanted to show that change of season into SL autumn.  My fav colour for autumn is chocolate so I am glad it is a C colour! 

I was also rapt that I could get a pose in starting with C.  Thanks, Crackberry!



I don't know what's been up with me, but I'm just so tired lately. I zonked out at 8pm yesterday and woke up 12 hours later! Maybe it's the colder weather that's moved into New York (hello autumn/fall). It's just too damn comfortable and warm under layers of blankets, it's hard to get out of bed and not want sleeeeeeppp.
But I definitely felt rejuvenated this morning and set off into SL on a mission. Both outfits are ideal for September weather, where it's cool enough to wear long sleeves and warm enough for shorts.

Outift: Gizza - September Gift (Group Gift)

Blazer w/Shirt: SE/Upperman - Sport Coat w/Red Sweater (Group Gift)


Get Ready...

Tomorrow is the beginning of the Feed a Smile Event.  It all kicks off at 2pm with Troy Shoreland of The Follow fame playing an acoustic set.  I have heard him play solo and he is brilliant.

Then the amazing DJ Arya (that's me) is going to rock the sim from 3-5pm.  I am really excited and pretty nervous, so come and support me and give to this fantastic cause!

Each day for two weeks there will be entertainment galore and I will keep you updated on what you can go and enjoy.  Just remember, this is not just about us.  It is an opportunity to raise money and provide positive change to the extreme poor of the Rhonda Slums of Nakuru, Kenya.

So, come and have fun and donate some Lindens to this worthy cause!

See you there!


Little Bites 2

Ok, the next in the post bites is all about The Witch Hunt.  I loved doing this hunt.  It even inspired me to re-decorate for autumn!  I was tempted to start halloween decorating too, but I did refrain.  A bit early I think...

Now remember, all of the items in the hunt are 10L.  You are looking for a black witches hat and they are pretty easy (YAY!) to find.

The poses are from aDORKable Poses and are also in the hunt.
