The moment I jumped off of it was the moment I touched down…

[►]  As most of you know, I have been extraordinarily busy the past few weeks.  I started The Ego Co. and decided my first jump into events would be an all mesh hunt called Mesh Around.  Well, the hunt began this past Friday and yes, there are some great gifts in it. I’m also sporting some of the awesomeness that will be available soon at the Chic2 Birthday event.  I’d be remiss not to suggest you check out both events.  But, this post is more than that. A lot more.

I don’t often write very much with my blog posts, but I have a lot to say.  I think I’ll start with “Thank You.” Thank you all so much for your support, interest and participation in making The Ego Co. and this hunt so successful.  I am completely overwhelmed with the encouragement and appreciation I have received since this all started.  Thank you to The Ego Co. staff and bloggers.  You guys have all worked so hard and continue to.  I am so grateful for all the time and effort you have put into this. Thank you to the designers for creating such wonderful items and giving them away.  The donation of your time and effort has not gone unnoticed and I can’t thank you guys enough.  Thank you to the hunters.  You’ve all come out in droves and being so kind and helpful to each other.  I have really never seen so many people willing to help each other as in The Ego Co. group chat.  Without you all, this hunt doesn’t happen.

And now, time for a little personal mush.  The two ladies in this post with me, Clementine Ishtari and Tyr  Rozenblum are magical.  They have both helped me in so many ways and not just with the hunt.  Tyr is always there, encouraging me to do more and be my best.  And Clem is always there to listen and pick me up when I fall.  I don’t know what I would do without these two.  They anchor me. They keep me grounded but push me to fly at the same time.  I feel lucky that I can count these two as friends.

So Clem & Tyr – Thank you for being a friend.

I walk in the air, between the rain, through myself and back again…

[►]  While I was out today, I ran across this sim: Eagle Crest.  It’s modeled after an old run down carnival and a fantastic spot to take pictures.  It’s very dreary and weathered.  I really couldn’t help but be reminded of my hometown, a little hole in the wall town in the southern US.  I guess on first impression, you’d think I’m your typical southern girl.  I have the accent, I have the smooth slowness of the southern stereotypical southern girl’s personality, I have the huge family, spread out from one end of the county to the next.  But in reality, I was never and have never been your typical southern girl.  I was kind of a square peg in a round hole there, always looking for a way out.  I was never meant to be a small town girl, much to my parents chagrin.

When I got a little older, I started to rebel in whatever way I could..whatever way I felt would show everybody that I would definitely be the one getting out of that small town.  I dyed my hair crazy colors, I sneaked out and went to concerts at clubs I shouldn’t have been able to get in, I wore short skirts and lots of jewelry…and I tried desperately to get lose my accent.  I’m a bit older now, I still dye my hair, wear short skirts and lots of jewelry and I did make it out of that small town.  I never could lose that accent though.  This Counting Crows song, Round Here, will always and forever remind me of those years.

Enough rambling, huh? Sorry it’s 6:30 am and I haven’t really slept yet..so please excuse the introspection.  The look I put together for this post is kind of a throw back to me, age 16.  There’s so much I love about this post (including the new mesh skirt I just released at .evolve.) *insert shameless self-promotion.  The new skin from Body Co, Petal, is one that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it.  I’ve been looking for a skin to make me look a lil bit older for awhile and this one does! I need a break from looking like a kid.  These new boots from *Crazy* make me very, very happy too.  I find myself loving mesh more and more all the time.  I’m also wearing a lot of accessories.  My two favs are the new necklace from je suis; an owl watch and the mesh bag from *Tea Time*.  That’s about all for now.  If you made it through reading my ramblings, you get a gold star. ☆

Maybe I’m a little confused, It’s not your fault…

[►]  So after a few days, I managed to abduct Jay Trubs for another blog post…erm, I mean picnic.  :D We ate grapes, read books and took hipster pictures.  Then an angry mob of single middle aged women came along and beat the shit out of us. True Story. lol  No, seriously, there’s some really great finds in this post and once again, he looks better than me. WTDubs? I gotta step up my game.  I will say that I may never take off this new hair from Wasabi Pills.  It’s is omg adorable forever. I wear my hair like this in rl a lot, so I’m just kinda like..awh..cuuuute.  And of course, these sexy ass mon tissue jeans make everybody’s butts look phenom.  Mr. Trubs picked up a ton of stuff at Men’s Fashion Week and judging by what I’ve seen, you guys need to check it out! Take your bfs, husbands, gfs dressed as bfs..whatever..take them, get some new stuff and then go on a picnic date! Hopefully no mob will come after you tho! ♥

When we saw these dresses from *Boom* we were like…yup, doin it.  So, we grabbed a couple and hoooly crap, wow.  First of all, you guys need to understand how amazing our asses are in these dresses.  Okay, that being said, Harvest and I could not stop talking about how much we liked our asses when we did this shoot.  Like, really.  I don’t know if it’s normal or not to enjoy your ass this much, but whatever, we clearly did!

A silent heart ticking under the ground…

[►]  Hey guys! So today, I stepped a bit out of my zone..but I wanted to show you this skin from al vulo.  I often hear my friends talking about how there aren’t enough darker toned skins, so this one is for you ladies.  Normally, I’m all ultra pale and to be honest, I don’t usually even look at darker toned skins, but this one caught my eye.  If you’re looking for a darker tone skin, I suggest demoing this one, it might be what you’re looking for.  Also, everybody’s buzzing about the new mesh shop, coldLogic.  Janie Marlowe, Zyrra Falcone, and Damien Fate have collaborated in an effort to bring us tons of mesh goodies.  The skirt I’m wearing is one of them.  I highly recommend you go check it out..there’s tons of amazing items there. And if all that wasn’t enough, brand newness from Izzie’s.  This new bow tie top and belt come in a variety of colors.

And I never could have come this far without you…

[►]  Every girl knows they have one friend that they can go to with anything at any time and it won’t matter if your problem is serious or ridiculous, that friend is gonna sit and listen and understand and be supportive, even if they disagree with everything that comes out of your mouth.  One of those friends you don’t talk to for awhile and out of the blue one day, you find yourself talking for hours and catching up on things you’ve missed, as if you hadn’t missed a beat.  That’s my Jaliyah..or as I like to call her, Jelly.  She’s the Jelly to my Peanut Butter.  What’s reallllly cool, is when you and that friend have a few major common interests.  One of ours is blogging.  I’ve been super busy for awhile and not kept in touch with her as much as I should have, so we decided hanging out this weekend was a must..and of course..with that comes a blog post!  Aren’t we adorbs? Alright, enough mushy mushy, Jelly knows I ♥ her! On to the clothes!

I’m wearing some of the newest releases from d. Select.  These leather shorts and cardigan are soo cute and go so well together.  Also, as I’ve mentioned before, I’m a sucker for pig tail braids, so a huge thank you to Wasabi Pills for this hair.  Again, her mesh hair is just amazing and now comes in 2 sizes, one for boobs…and one for BOOBS! Jelly and I hit up t he Truth District earlier for the sale (yeah, I’ve been several times now lol). But, if you haven’t, make sure you get there before midnight slt, that’s when all the 50% off sales turn back into a pumpkin.  Jelly’s wearing some really cute accessories from R.icielli that she picked up during a recent sale.  I’m not sure if that’s still going on or not, but its worth a tp to find out!  I hope you’re all enjoying your weekends so far! I’ve got some pretty exciting news to share in a couple of days, so be prepared! ♥

PS: If you haven’t spent a day with a good friend in awhile, I highly recommend you do.  It’s good for the soul.

I’m bringin’ sexy back…

[►]  I had a comment from a poster asking me to bring sexy back!  Apparently, I haven’t been sexy enough lately, and for that I am sorry. :P I assumed, by bringing sexy back, you meant my buddy Chris, so I had him come take some pics with me, too.  Thanks, King…we can always count on you for sexy!  As far as the outfits go, I did quite a bit of bouncing around SL.  I had to hit up the Truth District 50% off sale, where I picked up the new Truth high pony tail and je suis nail fat pack for half off.  Then I made my way over to TDR Blue and snagged the Atomic skin there for only 70L.  OH and by the way, I have no idea how I missed these before, but a big thank you to Miranda (check out her blog here) on my plurk time line for posting about these N-core Coquette shoes.  I love studded anything and these are available in soooo many colors, but of course, I went with a purple-ish color! They’re just 295L, too, which made them even more amazing. I think I brought sexy back, at least I hope so!  These prices alone are pretty sexy! Make sure you don’t miss the sale at Truth District, there are several shops participating and tons of really great items discounted! ♥
