I never did understand why only men should receive good tidings and not the fairer species, so I resoundly wish a good will to all! Yes, once again its time for the now infamous Peace On Earth Hunt. Year five actually, in Second Life terms I think that means it started in the Paleolithic era. I used to try to “do” hunts all the time but never really found much of anything I am afraid. Not meaning the designers gifts weren’t amazing, I saw them blogged from here to kingdom come with envy, I just mean apparently my seeing-eyestick couldn’t access the nook and cranny the gift was so deftly cemented in to. But a few weeks ago I thought I would try again. I can’t recall which hunt it was, I burned its traitorous name from both my long term and short term memory. There was a clue the item was, I dont know, but basically supposed to be near the piano at Tres Beau. I just love Tres Beau, so I hopped on over there and got to work. An hour later, sweating from the labor of lifting and relifting all parts of the piano looking for the gifty, a tear fell down, and downtrodden I went home in acute embarrassment. They seriously need to consider an impaired hunt for those of us that are huntually challenged, I would stand here now and confess my impediment if the makers of these hunts would just once have a clue like, “see that gift box sitting right under the right paw of the mountain lion who hasn’t eaten in weeks? Thats the gift.” Well, praise the Lord and pass the tax rebates, I heard a little rumor yesterday, Sequoia Nightfire, CEO of POE5 realizing the impaired weren’t allowed to be involved with this whole Peace on Earth thing and Good Will to just those who could find the stuff, created a nice comfortable “lounge area” where people like Cao can relax in a big fat Lazyboy chair, scarf down Cheetos and heckle the other hunters hunting and pecking through the debris looking for the gift, and as they hunt away, I can pick up the gifts comfortably from my armchair. Yu-AY! The hunt runs from December 1st, 2012 to January 6th, 2013 so plenty of time for the rest of you to find the goodys! Have fun!

Recently I did an article in Trend magazine on Winter attire and one of the amazing models pooled for the shoot was Mozart Loordes. After all was done, deadline met and everyone looking smashingly well-heeled and well, me just being there looking cute, I was speaking to Moz a little bit. He was telling me about his store GlamDammitt, a store he and Lexi Vargas co-design for. I believe the store has both clothing and jewelry, with styles for men and women, so its a one stop shopping experience. Moz very kindly offered me two pieces of jewelry, the first the adorable earrings and ring I wear in the first picture, the stores POE5 offering.The emerald earrings are festive and have a very nice celtic feel to them, the golden and diamond ring I think I will wear to every runway show I am in from now on, pithy and sweetly it says”Calm down, Merry on.” I could use this ring in real life when the holidays turn to stress laden gift giving. Whats not to love about having a nice laugh in the middle of the merryment? The second piece, “Twiggy” works both with casual and formal attire with its glamorous gold and black metal rings, interlaced with pearls. A perfect focal point to most styles! If you get a chance, stop by Glam Dammit, I know you will find something perfect! And while there, hunt for the POE item and Be Merry! Here, I even included the Taxi! Taxi:

I cant help it. I am goofy that way. But any time I wake up and my feet hit the ground, I have to smile. Life is good. When I see someone I know in my morning wanderings, I have to smile. Life is good. When I get the chance to log into a Second Life and I am surrounded by such groovy and creative friends, I have to smile. Life is good. My personal fave? When I am blog reading, or Facebook scanning and run across something I really, really want and I know I can have it because in SL it doesn’t cost all that much, so not only can I have it, but I can have it right that second with instant gratification? Life is Grand. That’s the way I felt when I saw Tabata Jewell’s new hair “Midnight Oasis” I was hooked. I ran over to the marketplace, dropped down the change, and the next time I logged in, it was waiting like a Christmas prezzy at the door. I’ll be honest, and this is where I am a little goofy, I mean you all know me, I am soooooo slow about blogging things that I should probably just call my blog vintage SL, but I pushed everything else to the back of my “to blog” folder and snapped a pic right away. So here it is. Vanity Hair’s “Midnight” Oasis. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

I know, the title is a movie, but hang with me, there is direction. Such an easy to watch movie with its quirky characters, and in the end it teaches us that sometimes, no matter how hard we try, fate will always have its way and passion, or in the modeling sense, being passionate, doesn’t always have to mean being practical. It doesn’t even mean you have to stay within practical styles either. Freely mix your leopards with your satin and lace, throw in gold shades to match the lame` shirt under the jacket, and spice it up with bright red earrings. Its your fashion style, so create it to your liking. Listen to the music from another room, because then you will have a purpose driven fashion sense that is uniquely yours.

There’s nothing nicer than the simple sundress. It lightens a casual affair, or dresses up for the semi-casual soiree. It took me a little bit of time to come up with this look. Sometimes my brain is too scattered to concentrate for very long. And it actually took four different shots with four different accessories to find the look I liked. I didn’t really know what the dress meant to me, I just know I loved it and wanted to blog it. I went from my normal brown hair to light brown to platinum. Threw in different necklaces and earrings, but nothing inspired me. So I decided to play to my feminine whims. Isn’t there always something a little sexy about feathers? They flutter nicely about your face and tickle your nose when they wander too far, yet they always add such femininity.

I hope you get the chance to explore you, your style, and have fun while playing. Just remember, be the gorgeous glam you that you truly are. Second Life is the perfect locale for discovering your style because there truly never are any mistakes.

No.Playing.On.The.Furniture.

No.Playing.On.The.Furniture.

When I was about six or seven years old, I was playing outside and a furry animal flew by with its arms and legs spread wide like wings. I asked my mum what the creature was and she said it was a “flying squirrel.” Well, as is oft the way, sometimes from the smallest most mundane happenings, a family tradition is born. From that day forward, my greatest passion was to be a flying squirrel. It is not an easy feat, I assure you. Luckily my parents bedroom is on one end of the house and mine at the opposite side, because it takes a great distance of running to execute the perfect flying squirrel. Actually that “luckily” is probably more apropos for my parents because they could always hear my feet running down the hall long before I launched myself arms and feet wide yelling “flying squirrel” as I landed in the middle of their king-size bed. As a teenager, I no longer thought my parents would wait every night in the hopes I would flying squirrel them, so I added a loud “whee” as I ran down the hall, so they had time to, well, quit watching TV or something before I launched between them.

I had heard that as we mature we put away childish things and habits and become adults. I said I heard it, not that I believe it. Don’t ever believe it, okay? Declare a moratorium on silly rules today. “No playing on the furniture” should be at the top of the list. It’s just furniture, it can be replaced, that smile on your face when you “get away” with breaking this parent-centric rule is priceless. I can’t imagine a world without “flying squirrels” or bouncing on the bed. Luckily for my parents, every time I visit them, I am known to launch a few at them for old times sake. I am sure they appreciate that they are always loved enough to get one, no matter how big I get, because after all, I will always be their little girl.
