Tears that soak a callous heart…

[►]  I would love to show you all the colors of the five Alice Project Hairs at the Hair Fair this year, but I don’t think I actually have enough room on my computer’s hard drive for pics of ALL THE COLORS.  My god, Alice…colors…so many colors.  The Alice Project hairs come in 3 different sizes and 8 bagillion colors. Make sure to check behind the jump for lots more pictures and credits for everything. I was also tasked with showing you guys that the Alice Project – Bliss hair is a duel color hair.  Alice said “Bells you’re amazing and I love you, so I need your help”..and I said…”Challenge accepted”. :P <3

 

Credits and lots more Alice Project after the jump…

We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in…

[►]  I hope you all had a fantastic weekend.  I did! I picked up a bunch of stuff from C88, Chic2 and I’m -still- sporting this awesome ring from [HANDverk] from The Mesh Around Hunt.  You’ve all still got plenty of time to check out all three events, so make sure that you do!  This picture was taken on my sim, Where it Begins.  I’ve set it up with several different areas that I think are great for snapping photos, so if you’re looking for a place, feel free to drop by and take some photos. That’s about all from me this weekend,  I’m not exactly sure why, but I’m actually looking forward to starting the week tomorrow..(I know, who likes Mondays?)  I’ll probably feel different at 6 am, but we’ll see.  ♥

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 know the sun must set to rise.

[►] Some of you may be aware that I have been very busy lately, but for those of you who haven’t, let me let you in on a little secret.  I founded The Ego Co., an event management and organization group and our very first event, Mesh Around,  will be starting June 1st, 2012 and ending June 15, 2012.  This is a grid wide hunt with 65 really incredible designers participating.  As the you may have guessed by the name, this hunt is an all mesh hunt, meaning each hunt gift will be mesh.  This hunt is inclusive of clothing designers, hair designers, pose makers, and home and garden creators.  The purpose of Mesh Around is to introduce those who are curious about mesh to designers who use mesh as a design element.  I am very excited about Mesh Around and hope to see you all hunting June 1st.   You can find more information about Mesh Around, including a list of participating designers and hints (once I’ve gotten them all) at the Mesh Around page.

I have a sneak peek of a couple of the hunt prizes in this post.  This extra long beaded necklace from [Aura] is an exclusive color combination (orange, turquoise and lime) for Mesh Around.  It’s comes in 2 sizes, one for boobs..and one for BOOBS. :P   The Mermaid Fountain pictured below is also one of the hunt prizes from Black Rose.  It is all in all 60 prims, which includes the fountain itself with a mermaid sitting atop, the base and 8 stone benches.  Both of these items are 100% mesh, so you will need a mesh capable viewer to see them.

Don’t question why she needs to be so free…

[►] 

Don’t question why she needs to be so free
She’ll tell you it’s the only way to be
She just can’t be chained
To a life where nothing’s gained
And nothing’s lost
At such a cost

Now don’t you understand, I’m never changing who I am…

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. ☆
