Give Me Some Skin

ScareMeSillyPomWhale

High 5!
Greetings, Mon.

Since my eldest son has been back home from Hawaii,
I’ve become more aware of the different ways people greet each other.
No matter how you wiggle your fingers, fold your hands and bump
your bodies, it all sums up to a “Hello.  Good to see ya!”
How you are received plays a great part in how your interaction between you
and the Greeter will play out.
If they come at you foul, unless you are a saint or practice meditation,
chances are you won’t feel so peaceful.
It’s give and take….

….you gave me some skin at the beginning (handshake).
And I’m showing you some skin.
(Susan by POM)

Scare Me Silly, brought to you by Team Diabetes of Second Life, is in it’s
3rd year of raising funds for The American Diabetes Association.
POM has joined this charity event with Susan — an ultra-sexy, barely-there Romper.
Compatible with Belleza and Maitreya Mesh Bodies, this ruffled delight comes
in Lilac, Pink, Raspberry and Yellow.
Delicious.

Now, I want something sweet.
Any suggestions……

Scared Silly

scaremesilly2018

Diabetes.
I, like nearly 10% of the US population, have it.
Although, I try to deny it and will occasionally
laugh about it, Diabetes is no joking matter.
It has left me vision impaired and more which
is why it was a no-brainer for me to join
Team Diabetes of Second Life in their
3rd Annual Scare Me Silly Event.

Team Diabetes of Second Life is an official and authorized team of The American Diabetes Association. The mission of Team Diabetes of Second Life is to raise awareness, tolerance, and funds for diabetes in the virtual world of Second Life. According to the World Health Organization (2016): 422 million adults in the world have diabetes and 1.5 million deaths are directly attributed to diabetes each year.

I don’t wanna die.
Not yet.
That is why I’m taking this event to heart.
As a message.
It’s time I stop my lax approach to this disease, pull up my big girl panties,
take the prescribed medications and better my health.
But, that will only be the beginning.

Scare Me Silly is an all inclusive event.
Running until October 27th, it features two Hunts, Live Performers,
DJ’s and an Art Show.
Designers have come out in hoards making shopping a treat.
Roped Passions is one of those designers.
With 100% of it’s sales going toward the event, I give you
Halloween All A Glow.

ScareMeSillyRopedPassions

Designed to make any Halloween a scary pleasure,
Roped Passions’ Halloween All A Glow is available in two colors: Orange and Purple.
Compatible with Maitreya, Belleza and Slink Mesh Bodies,
these silky Silks cling to your curves giving way to a much sexier you.

Hmmmm…
I wonder if consuming pumpkin would be good for me.
The American Diabetes Association states,
“They are high in iron and unsaturated fats.
These unsaturated fats may help to lower cholesterol levels
when they replace saturated fats and trans-fat in the diet.”

Is that so?
Heeere, punkin’, punkin’….

Pay Attention

RYRDEBoutiqueAlaskametroPipe

It’s hard.
Not multi-tasking and giving one single item,
task or idea your undivided attention.
Tis the way of the world.
There’s no time for idle time and being in the moment is all in the past.
Well….
STOP.
For the next few moments, pay attention and concentrate on this….

the National Breast Cancer Foundation,
has raised over $1500 US Dollars so far.

Paper, ROCK, Scissors

RYRCabbitAd

Roshambo.
Another name for the decision making free hand game
mostly known as Paper, Rock, Scissors or some other
form of the three words.
You know the rules:
Paper covers Rock.
Rock blunts Scissors.
Scissors cut Paper.
Now, indulge me for a moment…

What if Paper represented Cancer and what if
Rock stood in the place of a cancer Patient?
Scissors can then be how the Rock views them —
Pharmaceutical companies, Chemo, Supportive family, etc.
Keep indulging me…

Paper (cancer) suddenly covers Rock (Patient).
Mind you, paper only covers.
It does not smother, contain or completely envelop it.
That means light can shine through giving the Rock
the ability to blunt the Scissors (Chemo, Fam, etc)
so they aren’t too difficult to handle; using them to be Paper-Free.
Indulging should continue, please…

Besides the Scissors, the Rock has a helper — a sidekick, if you will.
And it’s named after it’s Heroine/Hero….
ROCK.
YOUR.
RACK.

Letting Loose With Fashion For Change

Well, this is it!
My last entry regarding Fashion For Change on
the last day of a worthwhile event.
It began with The Power of Love with Fashion For Change to
The Wizard of Awe Loves Fashion For Change featuring Baboom.
I then featured Lyrical Bizarre Templates by
Being Kewpie With Fashion For Change
and later announcing There’s a Fairy Godmother at Fashion For Change
with Romance Couture waving her magic wand.
Now, on this last chance to bring attention to FFC 2015
and Womankind Worldwide, the charity this event supports,
I’ve chosen these last two designers:

WICCA’S WARDROBE
&
COCO!

Making_Strides

There are many things I love about Wicca Merlin.
One of them is the fact that she understands my
occasional need for the outrageous.
Giving me carte blanche to style her designs as I see fit,
this sense of freedom has brought about some
of the best images I have ever created.
With that said, allow me to introduce Wicca Wardrobe’s contribution to FFC which is the Aelinia Jacket in Marsala.
With this being for charity,
I decided not to let myself become too loose
and allow the design to speak for itself.
And speak it does, but not alone.
The Thigh High Boots in Black by COCO work perfectly.
Sleek, slim and without a lot of bells and whistles to distract,
these boots are the grand go-to choice.

<sniffs>
On this, being my last Fashion For Change entry,
I’d like to thank FFC’s staff for putting their faith
in my ability to bring attention to their cause.  I hope I did not disappoint.
And don’t you disappoint, either.
Here’s the key to your Bentley.
Hop in, make a purchase(s) and change lives.

Peace be unto you ♥

There’s a Fairy Godmother at Fashion For Change

Cinderella.
You know the story…
An underprivileged chick whose father has bad taste in women,
slaves away for her hateful stepmother and fugly stepsisters.
But, whom shall appear to rescue our fair damsel from distress?
Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!
Well, guess what?
Cindy doesn’t hold the monopoly on fairy godmothers.
Fashion For Change has their very own and she is willing to
bestow upon us all our couture desires.
I wanted to be a lady — a pretty woman even Julia Roberts couldn’t touch.

POOF!

Pretty_WomanComplete transformation!

Last week my chosen Fashion For Change designers were
Boom and Lyrical Bizarre Templates.

Today, the spotlight is on
ROMANCE COUTURE!

Romance Couture aka Fashion For Change’s Fairy Godmother,
delivers to us this oh so lady-like ensemble called Garalang.
Coming in many colors, I chose the vibrant blue.
The rest of the work was pretty much done for me since Garalang comes in tow with a matching purse and hat.
Now, I am sitting pretty.
So can you.
All you have to do is make a wish, click your heels three times and you’re there.
Yes, yes…I know it’s the wrong story, but all is fair in fashion and fantasy.

Fashion For Change.
It’s a great cause

The Wizard of Awe Loves Fashion For Change

Greetings, Lovers of the Universe!
How is life treating you?
My life is grand.
I’m full off of pizza, cinnamon sticks and orange soda.
I’m not being threatened with violence, inequality and discrimination.
I’m blessed.
However, there are those who are not as fortunate.
Have no idea what I’m referring to?
That can only mean one thing.  You missed my last entry.
Shame on you!
But, not to worry.  Here is the chance to redeem yourself.
Take a moment to read The Power of Love with Fashion For Change.
I’ll wait.

Finished?
Good.  Now we are on the same page and I can proceed with my first featured designer:

BABOOM

Wizard_of_Awe

This ethnic ensemble is called Mandala and consists of a mesh dress, two upper arm bracelets, two lower arm bracelets, a hat and a bow.
One of the features I love about Mandala is that the hat and bow are completely modifiable.  This means if you have a big head or a sloped forehead as I do, re-sizing the hat is easy peasy.  What’s that?  You’re not into hats?  Not a problem because the bow looks great independently on it’s own.  Wear it in your hair or shrink it and attached it to your chest for a nice touch.
Btw, you won’t need to wear the bow in the back since the dress comes with a large red one already attached.

Follow the yellow textured prim brick road to Fashion For Change and look for Baboom.
It’s for a worthy cause ♥
