Tada! Ugly Duck has released new skins and I am so happy because in addition to the dark brows, Fade has included lighter brows that work for blondes and redheads :D So let me sum it up: New brow colors, new lip option, 5 new skins, FRECKLES, and the option of having or not having a lady garden. (Ha! Yes Fade, I used your description of the pubes). I really like the skins. They’re sweet and quirky AND nice for pictures. Again, you get 10 makeups in each pack and believe me its an awesome deal. Go demo, because this preview of mine is small in comparison of the options you get from her skins. For really!
So Today, I went wandering around this particular sim because I was determined to get another pic of myself in my new skin, and I was warned by a random stranger to beware the squids O_O so I’m passing this advice to all of you. Stay away from the Squids y’all!

Yes I have new hair. If you haven’t gone to Fri.Day to check out the new hairstyles, then you’re missing out on the pretty! I’m obsessed with this Marie hair. Hempy is one of my neighbors and she was there the night I was picking up my new cabello (that’s how you say hair in Spanish). See my necklace and bracelet? Hells yeah, Miss Hempy made it! I was looking at this music video the other day and I wanted to dress in white. Litzi can be innocent too!
I guess you can say the video, more so the song, inspired this simple but girly look. And Hempy’s pieces added that extra something I needed to make it work :D So where is this video? You’ll find it at the bottom of this entry. Ahh, and one last thing! The pictures were taken inside of the NUT skybox, one of the hunt gifts from the Starlust Valentine’s Hunt.

I first heard of Cajsa’s challenge on plurk and I quickly thought about all the people I know and couldn’t decide who to choose. Then I logged in and I was instantly inspired by my surroundings. My home is set to a place my friends and I named, Dork Street.
A funny name attached to a loving and caring small SL neighborhood. Every single person that I call “neighbor” is someone I can call a trustworthy and dependable friend. Each individual is strong and talented in their own way. DS and it’s visitors I think is the perfect example of respecting each other despite differences in style, opinion, and humor. The foundation of our friendship is based on communication and understanding. We support each other and have a silent bond that allows us to be comfortable with one another.
There are people within Dork Street that go through their own health related struggles or have gone through something difficult but still manage to smile and make things fun for the rest of us. Others build, design, or create amazing items. Some of my neighbors are more into fashion and their blogs show up on the feeds to inspire others to explore their own sense of style. A few of them take photography to another level and make you see emotion through a single snapshot. Then there are the ones who go through it all, do it all, or don’t do any of it, and their wit alone can entertain you. These individuals are the reason I have a true understanding of what it takes to juggle real life responsibilities and yet come back to willingly give of themselves to strangers by way of their creativity.
Dork Street renewed my want to remain in Second Life when I was ready to walk away from it. This group of various people and their differences came together and created a small environment where we, and the people who hang out with us, can have fun and just get away from the stresses in daily life. In a way, I guess you can say we agreed to be selfless and we learned to compromise and tolerate to keep things peaceful. There has never been a single dramatic event at Dork Street. Some people have left and returned to a hectic and busy real life schedule, but we always wish them well and leave a door open in case they want to come back.
Being part of this neighborhood in Second Life has made me realize that every person has a story. They have to be willing to share and you have to be willing to listen. After all, you can’t be inspired if you do not open yourself up to the opportunity.
