What does family mean to you? Seems like a loaded question that has often been asked with various answers such as home and loved and things like that. My family in RL means the world to me and so do the ones in SL. The one who seems to always be the one I can count on is my sister Tempest. We pull each others hair out sometimes but she is always there and is always wanting the best for me and for our family. Would have been nice to have our brother, Cameron, there with us for this photo, but RL comes first! So, I guess I should answer the question huh? Family means a lot to me and I never believe that you have to be blood to be family. The important part is that your family uplift you, support you, and teach you to be a better person. If these qualities are met… then yes you are considered my family. I am lucky to have two amazing siblings and an amazing husband here who do just that!

I felt in such a family mood I wanted Temp to join me to show off a new favorite dress for me. I am never one for huge and flashy clothes or dresses. Yes, there is a place for that sometimes, but most of the time I just prefer to look simply elegant. This Starry Sky dress from Poute is the perfect example. If you are curious, Haute Couture Designs will now be known as Poute. I was so excited when I opened the box and put my usual size on and it fit like a perfect custom made glove. The detailing at the top is stunning and a must have for any lady in SL. The belt is an extra add on from the dress and also in the middle of the bow is a stone that matches the dress. You would really need to see it up close to understand how beautiful it is. You can pick up this piece of art at the FashionArt Fair. A must see!!!! TOOTLES

Gracious Giving

One thing I do love to see the most in SL are the events centered around a cause. We should all give back to those who are less fortunate and I am pleased to announce that one of my favorite designers, Haute Couture, is participating in a very worthy cause. The EB Awareness Event has been created to help support Epidermolysis Bullosa. Epidermolysis Bullosa is a very rare genetic connective tissue disorder that affects 1 child out of every 20,000 births (that means about 200 children a year are born with EB). EB is actually a group of disorders that share a prominent manifestation of extremely fragile skin that blisters and tears from friction or trauma. Internal organs and bodily systems can also be seriously affected by EB. I personally do not know anyone with this disorder and I pray for those who are affected by something so horrible. 50% of all the proceeds that Haute Couture receives during this even will be donated to the Debra of America foundation. If you would like to learn more about this foundation and what EB is you can visit their website here. The event is lasting from April 28th – May 9th. Please take the time to support such an important issue.

The shoes I am wearing are a release from HOLLYHOOD and are the Katrina wedges in white. These are a medium slink add on.

Garden SL

One of my favorite movies growing up was the Secret Garden. I haven’t seen this movie in quite a few years but as I remember it… it was some what of a fairytale as the girl found the key to this desperate looking garden which needed her love and care to make things grown into this fantasy of a place. It is a place where dreams grow and flourish. I may not have a secret garden in SL but I have made my home a garden… and I try to make SL a place where things grown and flourish. A place where dreams come true… where people who may not have must of a RL with an illness or someone who is disabled is able to meet others and interact in a fun way. I think about these things daily. Who are we really meeting when we enter this garden of a place. What were they before they found their secret garden or in this case before they found their SL. AHHH the things that go through my mind when I stay up late and blog… BUT I have a really good reason to blog, I promise!

I just have to show you some of the amazing things being shown at the Spring Break Fair 2014. I was going through some of these creations and a few stuck out. This OSITO spring romper in blue daisy made me just feel like I was sitting in a beautiful garden. There are several colors to choose from so you will have your pick! Also, in my hair I am wearing the Flower Essence in peach made by Haute Couture. This flower is offered as a gacha at the fair so go and try your luck! Show me the styles that you make from the items at the Spring Break Fair! It really is a ton of fun 🙂

Let Me Rock You

I feel like singing a sweet tune every time I have one of my sponsors doing the same fairs as the ones I blog. It makes me feel good to be able to help put their items out there for everyone to see and appreciate just as much as I do. Haute Couture is one of my favorite designers and I was thrilled when she asked me to blog for her. I was even more thrilled to see her designs at the Rock Attitude Fashion Fair. This Attitude top in plum is one of her amazing designs. You can’t see it from my photos, but most of the back is out with a lovely spiked strap across the back. You can pick this top up in 5 different shades. Also, everyone knows I am a sucker for amazing and different poses. {NanTra} has released the songbird blogger pack which are available at the Rock Attitude Fashion Fair. The poses come with the microphone that you see in these pictures. I hope you take advantage of the fair as soon as you can! Why wait? TOOTLES
