When there is Hope there is Life

Bringing Hope

When there is hope after a tragedy there is life. So much of helping people when they have lost everything, or they have hit rock bottom is about giving them hope. Hope that things will get better, hope that there is a future, hope that someone out there cares about them and what happens to them. As a community, it’s important to give others hope and let them know that with help, they will get through what is one of the hardest times of their lives. Two charity events in Second Life do just that – one is the Hope After Harvey event and the other is the upcoming Rock Your Rack event. Hope After Harvey supports the American Red Cross Disaster Fund which allows them to assist anyone who is a victim of a tragedy – either a hurricane such as Harvey and now Irma, or even if their house burns down in the middle of the night. It also supports the Houston Humane Society which has worked tirelessly through the high waters rescuing animals, and making sure others who are cut off from food by flood waters have adequate food to make it through until the water recedes. Two very worthy reasons to go and shop at this fundraising event, or even just drop some lindens in the donation box at the event. It’s open until September 20th.

My Gown is a special limited edition available only at the Hope After Harvey event. This gorgeous gown and included forehead tiara is a special Limited edition Sapphire color of the “Kaya” gown from Azul. Mami Jewell has graciously provided 4 different special edition gowns/dresses for this charity event, all with 50% of the proceeds going to the cause. Why not treat yourself to a gorgeous AZUL gown while supporting those who need hope. Find it at the Hope after Harvey Event going on now.

My nails are a new release at the Imaginarium Gacha event from Alme. Beautiful blue floral wreaths are just one of 10 common polish Hud’s available along with 2 Rare HUD’s for just $50L a pull.

Finally, I want to let you know about the upcoming Rock Your Rack 2017 Event opening September 30th. This amazing event is in it’s 5th year supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Black Fair Aria

Aria

The Black Fair 2017 is open and has some amazing finds as always. I always look forward to this event since the top designers participate and always have an exclusive that is to die for. AZUL is there with just such an exclusive with “Aria” in Onyx. This amazing mesh gown has a tank style neckline that is draped gently at the bust, and then has a full side slit up the left leg. Wispy, sheer skirt pieces whip about your body for a feminine touch so true to AZUL. It all ends with your choice of white or black pearl adornments up the right side and a huge cluster at the left hip. Stunning. Who doesn’t love white and black – so timeless and so classic. It’s only at the Black Fair 2017 through April 21, so don’t miss this!

My Nails are also only available right now at the Black Fair. These are from Alme. The “Black Metal French” hud has several tip choices including silver, chrome, bronze, gold and black. You can wear one as I have or mix and match using the hud and your hand menus. These nails come in two HUD choices – the standard HUD works with slink, maitreya (including the new bento update I’m wearing here), Belleza, OMEGA, Tuty’s and Vista Bento.

Winter Reds

Winter Reds

It’s been so cold here these last few days that I’m ready for spring and summer. So I decided to find a nice warm place in SL and wear some of my favorite colors to warm up. Wishful thinking and hoping it will translate to SL.

My ensemble is new this month at SWANK from Emerald Couture. This is the “Suzie” outfit. It comes with appliers for the bodysuit for all the popular mesh bodies. To that you have mesh jeans and tall, spike heel boots. Over it all is the long, open front cardigan with slits on the sides. Perfect to chase away the hopefully last remnants of winter and wishing for spring and summer to arrive. It’s available in several colors including Teal, Red, Green, Blue and others – find them all at SWANK when the new round opens this week.

Next up I have my nails available starting today at The Chapter Four Event from alme. These nails are in the 1/2 price room for just $95L this month. The “Talissah – Thai” Nails. You can wear all of one of the designs I’m showing here, or the mix up version I have here. The nails are for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza and OMEGA. Get them at this low price while you can! They will go up after the event to regular price.

Thai Nails from alme.

Finally I’m featuring the newest hair release at the enVOGUE mainstore – Giovanna in light blondes. This long, sleek design features part of the hair pulled back into a casual roll and fold. The left side falls over the left shoulder and the right side is back behind. Nice, long, casual that will pair perfectly with any styling. Lots of color packs available at the mainstore, I’m wearing one from the light blondes pack.
