“Like a breeze through the trees you can watch me [go]“

In Events, Fashion by laylahlecker

I’m flying home (Albuquerque) in 10 days. I’m so excited! The only thing I’m worried about is taking my pups with me. He’s a chihuahua, so I’m taking advantage of his small size and opting to take him in lieu of my carry-on bag. I’ve never flown with an animal before, so I’m really hoping it will be smooth sailing, er flying. I would leave him in Vegas, but my boyfriend works close to 10 hours a day. Okay, honestly? Secretly, I wonder if I love my dog more than my boyfriend. Yikes! Sorry, my love.

Celebrating Independence Day

In Events, Fashion by laylahlecker

Happy Fourth of July! Since my boyfriend is working tonight, I took this holiday literally, and I spent quality time with me.

Appreciate the present

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately, so I put all of my negative emotions to the side and thought about life from a new perspective.

Often, when I am moody, I’m thinking of what I did wrong. I hardly ever think about what I did right.

“With the blink of an eye, [I] finally see the light…”

In Events, Fashion by laylahlecker

The scent of honeysuckles reminds me of home. If you didn’t know, honeysuckles grow as a vine. Or maybe a certain variety does? I don’t have a green thumb. :/ However, I recall them climbing my childhood home.  I’ll be back in Albuquerque in a couple of weeks. I haven’t been home since November 2013, and maybe that isn’t too long for some, but what can I say, I’m a hometown girl and away from my roots as I work in Sin City (aka Las Vegas). Prism Designs‘ Lua in Honeysuckle reminded me of home if only for the color’s … Read more at the source.

In darkness, there is light

How do you picture the future of SL?  If you say sky high buildings and high heel wedges, we are on the same page!

In honor of SL11B, johannes1977 reveals the Tribute City-Black Eagle Rock Club always moves and never stops. While the events are done, all of the sims are open for your viewing pleasure, so check out what may be Second Life’s future.  At dusk, the tall, moving buildings have an ethereal glow.

In crisp daylight, the build offers a magnetic background for pictures. Really, it was almost mesmerizing to watch the buildings rotate.

Are you up for a challenge?

No? Hey. I can’t believe you gave up that easy! :/ Come on…everyone loves a selfie right? As many of you know, it’s Second Life’s 11th birthday! While the celebration started on the 22nd, the party is still kicking until June 29th. Doc Gascoigne wants to see your faces amongst the birthday celebration! Now, taking the perfect selfie is not rocket science, but I always say go high! Camera angle high that is.

Running in heels

In Events, Fashion by laylahlecker

I have one rule when breaking in new shoes. I never break them in alone.  I call it female bonding. I made the mistake of breaking in new heels with my boyfriend. He was totally unsympathetic.  Since then, I grab my fellow shoe lover friend and we stamp, then hobble, together.  Actually, I may have another rule that I just thought of. I do not wear heels on the Las Vegas strip anymore. I almost died that night. Second Life heels are much kinder. I climb SL mountains in heels.

Mixing and Meshing

In Events, Fashion by laylahlecker

I thought I had only been involved in SL for roughly 3 years, but I double checked my profile (bad memory), and I rezzed in 2009! Second Life is turning 11 this year, and in my 5 years alone, there has been a surge in avatar technology. For instance, fitted mesh adjusts to your figure, so you don’t have to standardize your shape. It’s actually kinda cool to pop on fitted mesh and go crazy with the shape sliders. Can you imagine that in RL? I could throw out my fat and skinny day pants. ;)

“Sit on the side and watch the world go by.”

In Events, Fashion by laylahlecker

Although I can be moody, I’m actually an optimist. If something doesn’t go my way, I think it’s meant to be or a sign from above.  I feel so Zen today. I spent some time at Baja Norte. Have you gone yet? If you’re a beach lover, you’ll love it. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Whenever I blog, I like to explore new places. It’s honestly the only time I leave my teeny parcel.

Finding the Perfect Picnic Spot

I wanted something beachy to go along with PurpleMoon Creations‘ newest dress Leia. It’s the type of dress that you can dress up or down, which … Read more at the source.

What Spanx can’t do

Boom. That’s the first word that popped into my head when I slipped on Prism’s Marylin. The tight mesh sweater and pencil skirt really creates a curvy but utterly toned shape.

Prism Design's Marilyn Sweater and Skirt  adds curves.

Why can’t I find clothing like this in real life? Spanx can only do so much. Marylin comes in other patterns and colors, so if you need a shapely lift, click Prism Designs for a teleport to the store.

I have always been a SL virgin

In Events, Fashion by laylahlecker

I haven’t been able to spend too much time in SL lately (you too huh?), but I remember talking to my friend Tiff and she told me there were mesh bodies. I said no way. Two weeks later, I got a mesh body. I’m such a follower! Actually, I was really curious. Like all shopaholics, I need a reason to buy stuff. Styles by Danielle‘s newest release Cornelia comes with appliers for the WowMeh mesh body. Naturally,  I wanted to try it.
