I Wear Teal…

Wear teal… in memory of those who can no longer.

Wear teal… who have made it through and lived to tell.

Wear teal… to raise awareness of this silent and deadly disease that affects women because so many still do not know much about it.

I wear teal… because it’s the right thing to do.

In case you didn’t know, teal is the color of Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, which happens to be September. I only found out a short while ago and I wish I had known sooner. While this month is rapidly drawing to a close there is still one more day. One more day left to educate yourself or others about this silent killer that is still under promoted but is  cslowly gaining steam. I’ll admit there is still a lot I don’t know about ovarian cancer. It took my friend’s mom from her and now I’ve met another woman, a survivor (you know who you are). You can educate yourself here: http://www.ovariancancer.org/. On Saturday I will put on pink for October, but until then, I wear teal.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge – Khaki

It’s been another super busy week for me RL. Therathe was here all weekend so of course that pretty much ensures I get no blogging done. Hehe. Anyway here’s my quick and lazy khaki in honor of my sweetie’s visit. Now it’s off to procrastinate on grading papers by painting my toenails or some other such thing.

Been Caught Stealing

So Kaiden was showing me this relatively new safe pose prop from Glitterati (which btw, when Katey plurked she was making something with lasers I was a little concerned lol. I was picturing something a la Austin Powers and sharks with lasers – do not ask!) Kaidencrashed and the safe was sitting out and I couldn’t help myself. I just had to play with it! I think it had something to do with the fact that I just saw 30 Minutes or Less the other day which is kind of a heist movie. Okay onto the pics!

I hope I don’t trip and set off the alarm!

Alphabet Challenge: B

Omg B was such a pain because I couldn’t find any B skins in my inventory that didn’t look totally off on my avi. Silly me though, (insert blonde moment here) I just recently joined Belleza and I forgot to unpack my group gifts. 

Whatever am I going to do for C now? Help!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge – Brick

Gah! Only 6 weeks left in our little challenge! I hope Luna does another round but that remains to be seen yet.

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure about this color. I really can’t tell how brick differentiates from week 44’s firebrick but oh well. I’m using another great mesh dress from JANE. I’m really loving the products available now even if SL V3 is giving me issues when it comes to photographing them. And the fact that this mesh dress comes from one of my favorite designers in SL makes me even more excited. So here is my version of brick red.
