Alysha's Second Life

Where Fashion Is Too Good To Be An Obsession

SHOE FAIR!!!!!

SHOE FAIR IS OPEN!

I’m a little late in posting, but along with Phoenix Chapman, Anastasia Trefusis and Delora Starbrook, I’ve been working my tail off on last minute details prior to the fair opening.  It has been tiring, but very rewarding!  I have had the pleasure of working with an amazing team and meeting talented designers.  The Shoe Fair has soo much to offer everyone and the sims look amazing!  You are going to have to take at least one picture!

And, you get bonus points if you come dressed to match the theme:  farm life.  Here is my outfit…which I am lovingggggggg.

Shirt by WoE (Lunden)
Tank by WoE (Manda – in the gatcha machine at the mainstore!)
Jeans by WoE (Graecyn)
Earrings by Indyra Originals (Nuvella Hoops)
Necklace by Exodi (Alysha)
Skin by Exodi (Isolde – group gift)
Hair by Celestial Studios (Annie May)

I’ll be doing a more shoe related post or two…or three…or four….later on (read:  I have to get my insane shopping in order to figure out what to post!).  But until then, please keep your eye on the official Shoe Fair Blog.  We have some amazing and talented bloggers blogging their little hearts out to keep you up-to-date on what you can find at the fair.

Please come and shop the Shoe Fair, to benefit Soles4Souls!

See you there!

Prelude….to….ummm….something….

Howdy SL land!

Yep, I’m still around.  Maybe you missed me.  Maybe you didn’t.  Maybe you didn’t even know who I am.

Anyhoo, I’m gonna be doing some housecleaning – fixing up some blog links and such.  May fiddle with the design, dunno yet.

Something is sparking in my mind.  It is taking form.  It has some thoughts.  Not ready for the publish button yet though.

Close.  Very close.

Stay tuned.  Ya know…if you want to….

SAVE RYKER’S KITTIES!!!

My sweet friend Ryker is moving to the UK in a little over a week and found out today that the home she thought her kitties could go to is no longer available.

Another option has been obtained, but it will take fundage to get them there.

Ryker has helped me so many times.   Please help me in helping her now.

You can read about the kitties here and you can go to Exodi and enjoy 50% off and help the kitties by catching the cab here.

Thank you for helping my awesome friend!

Contemplation…….

Thinking

It’s 2010.  Happy New Year everyone!

2009 was certainly an upper and downer for me.  Mainly RL, but some SL in there too.  All in all, I’m where I wanted to be, aiming my RL towards things I want and hope will happen.

But like so many people who have done SL time, I find myself….I dunno……in the middle of something….

I don’t want to say purgatory.  That just sounds….bad.

And it’s nothing bad.  I just feel….god, I just don’t know how to label it.

I’ve had my SL job – hosting for a club which turned into being a manager of that club and watching it cycle through its many incarnations until it unfortunately went head to head with the ever changing trends of SL and had to close for good.  But those were good times.  I have so many friends from those times.

I started blogging.  And I absolutely loved it.  But why did I love it?  I’m a nobody that wasn’t really trying to get anyone’s attention.  I just…wanted to blog.  And it was fueled by my overbearing addiction to SL shopping.  Mainly fashion, but any shopping was always good.  Never thought I would end up being a “fashion guru” (I still giggle when people refer to me as that – it sounds funny), but I guess people liked what I showed and blogged about.  Again, in the end, it was simply a love of fashion and shopping.

So what happened?

RL is the culprit.  I had to focus my energy into moving and getting a new job and adjusting to a new life and all that wonderful stuff.

So I’ve done that.  Ok, so what the hell is the damn problem?

I couldn’t tell you for the life of me.

I know that I no longer have the disposable income at this point in which I can transform my hard earned US dollars into virtual Lindens to shop to my little av heart content.  And I have concluded that that was the main fuel behind the blog….the shopping.  Now I scrimp what little money I have leftover from my paycheck every two weeks to pay the rent on my parcel.  No sugar daddy to lean on.  I tried the photo thing, but no one wanted to darken my doorway (no worries though lol).  And I have zero other skills to lean on to bring in any Linden cash.

Sure, I could blog only on the generous freebies that designers throw my way (which is always appreciated and I never turn down freebies!).  But I feel my blogging is more honest, more true, when I can blog it from the shopper’s point of view.  This is what I spent my Lindens on.  And I like it.

I dunno.  I’ve just rambled a whole lot and I’m not sure where to go from here.  I’m not leaving SL.  And I’m not abandoning blogging.  Just letting you know I’m kind of sitting on a lilypad in the middle of a pond going, “huh?”.

Feel free to leave comments if you so see fit.

Thank you for listening.

Turkey Backlash

I feel like I was the bird in the oven.  Overly stuffed.

I hope everyone who celebrates it had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.  I’m still here, haven’t disappeared off the face of the earth completely.  Just changing the diaper on RL because it was screaming for a change.

No…..I’m not pregnant.  Move on. :p

I’ll be back to posting some stuff shortly.  So have a drink ready for me.

Also, I wanted to let everyone know that the RL Athena’s Cup has been extended through to October 2010 in hopes of gathering the bras needed to break the Guiness World Record.  With that said, the SL Athena’s Cup will more than likely be extended as well.  So if you would like to participate but the holiday season isn’t the best time for you, have no fear.  It will still be around for a while.

All my love and M&Ms to all!

~*~*~*~ The SL Athena’s Cup ~*~*~*~

athenaCup_unfitted

I am so overwhelmingly grateful for the designers that have agreed to join me in this cause.  It means so much to me and I can’t wait to see how much is donated to this wonderful cause!

So this would be the official launch of the SLAC!  What I will be doing is as each designer lets me know that their item is up and ready in their store, I will post the store’s SLurl.  Keep in mind that each designer was given the option to run their pieces for either the entire time (until 1/1/10) or for a limited time as they saw fit.  So you might not want to wait too long before running over to get yours!

A big thank you to those designers that jumped on early, ready to give it their all:

Ryker Beck – Exodi
Lexi Morgan – Stellar by Lexi Morgan
Leah McCullough – Naive
Ravenlynn Templar – Liquid Velvet Studios
SySy Chapman – SySy’s

And no, it’s not too late to join us!  The event runs from now through to 1/1/10.  Just IM or drop me a notecard in-world and I will send you an informational packet.

Thank you again!!
