Dancing Queen Wannabe

When you’re a dancer (wannabe or full-fledged), you’ve got to have options. Either you’re not going to make it or eventually your corns, calluses and creaky joints will force you into retirement.

While I’m fresh out of ideas for a dancer’s future prospects, I have loads of other options to tell you about, starting with the extremely versatile Amber Shirt from Just BECAUSE, available at the current round of FaMESHed. Not only are there colour varieties (including additional hues with the fatpack), each shirt comes with HUD-driven options for the straps. In addition to the version I am wearing, you can add another set that wraps around your neck, or you can dispense with them completely, giving you a pretty scoop neckline. Tick the box for choices!

And if you are a dancer, you can’t be without a tip jar. [ keke ] will be releasing a set of tip jars for the upcoming new event, Le Six, opening on October 6th. These jars do not come with a tip script, but they are mod, so you can add the script of your choice. The hardest decision you’ll have to make is which one to use: they come with different sayings on the tags, with options from the traditional to the fun. Included are “Tips are appreciated – Thank you!”, “Tip here – Giving returns ten-fold :)”, “Money is the root of all evil. Cleanse yourself here”, “Tips are like hugging without all the touching” and “Please tip. My boss is a real bastard”. See what I mean about options?

Finally, the rustic screen I am using is from Flair. You get not only the triptych screen I am showing, there are three separate panels, as well. In addition, each section can be retextured with three options for the frame and the weave. The possibilities are mind-boggling! This item will be available at the “Going To The Max” event, which begins on October 3rd. In case you haven’t heard about this event, it is to assist Second Life resident and creator, Maxwell Graf, owner and creator of Rustica (in world sim/store, Marketplace). Max and his wife are being evicted from their home by family after caring for his wife’s parents until their death. With the generosity that creators in Second Life are known for, several have banded together to present an event to benefit Max and his wife, Cheryl. This event runs for only one week, so do plan to visit to help out. Another option is to go to the in world store or visit Marketplace (links above) and purchase something to assist. The location has not yet been announced, but I found information on the event on Mona Eberhardt’s bog. Keep your eyes open for the location in a couple of days. *EDIT: I found the SLurl to the event location on the ForMax Facebook page.

If you have an option to shop and help someone out, then there really is no option but to do so.

Comfort & Warmth

It is early in spring here in Australia, and I am already longing for autumn. A cozy couch to curl up on in front of a crackling fire would be amazing. Instead, the temperature is hovering around 31C and I am wearing shorts with the windows wide open.

But with all of these delicious home & garden goodies, I am pretending the frost is just around the corner.

The nirvana set from [ keke ] is as extensive as it is exquisite. You can find it at the current round of Shiny Shabby. And the sofa by Kuro can be found at the main store, where there is currently a sale on selected items. It’s a good time to stock up.

I have tried to create that feeling with some lovely things from The Liaison Collaborative, Deco(c)rate and [ keke ] for The Home Show 2017. Peruse the credits (they move more or less counterclockwise from the sofa) and pick out your favourites.

I won’t be writing more; I’ll be enjoying the island life.
