Spring Fling

Spring Fling

Spring is in the air! We’re getting glimpses of the warmer weather here, although there is still a chance for another snow shower. Love the fact that spring seems to invigorate everyone. It gives me a renewed energy to blog again after a long and lazy winter. Spring brings lots of fabulous new events that I definitely don’t have the money to shop but it’s always fun to go and look!

Forget Me Not My Darling

I’ve been awaiting for you
And you’ve been awaiting for me
Tell me that you’ll always be true
And you’ll be the only one for me
Forget me not my dear, my darling
Forget me not my love
I just wanna hold your hand
Hang on every word you say
Let’s write a song for us
And sing until we’re old and grey
Forget me not my dear, my darling
Forget me not my love
I’m coming home real soon
Please leave a light on for me
Tell me that you’ll always be true
And you’ll be the only one for me
Yes, you’ll be the only one for me

Forget Me Not

Tis the season for beautiful formal looks. As I said before, when the holidays come around I just can’t help but dress up. This gorgeous gown is one of Bliss Couture’s RFL exclusive donation items at the Xmas Expo. It’s not what I would traditionally chosen in a formal gown, but the unique bodice struck me and I fell in love with it immediately. Reminds me of a red rose. If you haven’t been yet, head to the Xmas Expo for some awesome holiday shopping for a great cause! TP’s below!

52 Weeks of Color – #49 & #50

# 49 - Cotton Candy

#50 - Gold

All caught up! Whew! I kept them both relatively simple. I don’t own much in either color so pickings were rather slim. (Pink is not a color I’m particularly fond of so I’m rather hoping this is the end of the pinks.)

The Dressing Room Fusion Is Open!

In case you haven’t heard, The Dressing Room and Dressing Room Blue have closed. They’ve come together to create a new event called The Dressing Room FUSION. 25 designers each one has up to 3 products available for purchase for a total of 60 vendors with everything priced from $40-$70L.

I have a special place in my heart for The Dressing Room. In my early days in SL, some kind soul directed me to TDR for quality clothes at cheap prices, getting me out of freebie and dollarbie clothes. While I was sad to see TDR Blue go, I’m so excited to see where TDR Fusion is headed. I’ve been twice already in the last two days and plan to head back for more!

TDR Fusion

This skin from TDR Fusion is so beautiful. It’s a darker tone than I would normally choose but I love it!

52 Weeks of Color – #47 & #48

Almost caught up! So sad to think that our precious color challenge is nearly at an end. Only 3 more weeks left. *sniff sniff* I have no idea what I’m supposed to do after that. Luna’s cc gives me something to blog on a regular basis and I’m for sure going to miss that.

While I tend to dress fairly casual and comfortable, I absolutely love getting all dolled up for parties and special occasions, both in SL and RL. With the holidays here, I’m on the hunt for the perfect party outfit for a night out on the town with my sweetie.

The RFL Christmas Expo is officially open with plenty of places to shop for gorgeous holiday outfits whether you’re in the mood for something fabulously high fashion or cute and flirty. I picked up a little bit of everything. I figure if I’m shopping for a good cause, it’s a bit easier for me to part with my lindens. Again, sorry if I’m overwhelming you with pictures, I just get so excited sometimes I can’t help it.
