Tide of words

Standard

 Today´s blog is not really about anything specific, but while on a break from hair, which i will pic up again soon, since i have so much to show you all from Hair Fair, but i needed a change so i tped randomly thru the destination guide, in some of my newest aquisicions, ending up at Mysterious Wave, where running away from the tides, i was chased down by words and birds.

So Today i bring you something from one of my favourite places, The Gallery Gift Shop, that has celebrate their birthday with new things for sale, a hunt and most importantly a whole new build, a fresh look making the place look wider and easier to navigate. I did manage to find all hunt items but today i am showing you these gorgeous and colourful, versions of Roza by Glam Affair that i bought at the gallery and is available in 3 different colours.

Speaking of birthdays, next month, it will be COLLABOR88´s first anniversary, and i heard about a very special edition of it, involving all the stores, that have been present for this last year at the event.

But enough about birthdays, and a bit more of this month´s My Second Box, women´s edition, the second now of  one of my favourite concepts, and surely the best way to get familiar with new brands, last nite i logged in to received another item from it, this lovely Aura dress, that seemed perfect for the glam Affair skin in pink, and Wasabi´s Pills version of the Princess hair in vanilla pudding for the last Fifty Linden Friday.

That´s all for now folks, don´t let words flood you.

Fairies in the dust

Standard

Fairy Tales in 2012 is just ending and this is my last article on this amazing event that will certainly spark everyone´s imagination, as we travel to fairy land.

And like on the others before we talk about women´s roles in Fairy Tales and those same roles evolution, this time is for the fairies, the Fay people of old times, that used to be ugly little creatures, that would glamour (yes that was when the word was born) young men into their land thru their magic powers and offer them food so to keep them prisoners for years or centuries, they would also steal babies and do other devious things, they where powerful, to some point and incredibly feared, with kings and queens and constantly fooling the sight, and the many times the brain and heart of humans.

Slowly with time they stopped being feared and seen as cute little things nature associated and of the garden variety like if suddenly creatures who were as much feared as gods or storms became tiny birds for admiration, only later do we see them in Fairy Tales, even when these have very little Fairies at all in the fairy godfather role, where they are a poor substitute for the never existent mother, a powerless creature who basically offers advise, and who´s only role is to advance the story, and who´s only power is a move of a wand or a bag of dust.

Later on we see another twist of the fairy evolution, again thanks to Disney and mostly the image of Tinkerbell, they become miniatures, with butterfly wings and with a more infantilized look then before, or the middle aged clumsy woman who does her job only god knows how.

Oh i do miss the creatures of power of old times, instead of the more childish images of today, when Tales of the Fay where scary and of warning and very far from any form of Fairy Tales even older versions, where happy endings where rare and stories a lot more brutally honest.

So ignore my ramblings if you wish but don´t ignore this event, since there is a lot to choose from and not much time left to shop.

By the way earlier today before going out for a wonderful afternoon in the sun i wrote my first official Zombie Popcorn blog and for those interested you can find it here: I´m not a zombie but i do love popcorns.

Back to our origins

Standard

This post was gonna be a lot different, but Culture Shock starts tomorrow and the chosen charity for this event is Médecins Sans Frontières, so i wanted to show a small preview, and that brings us to another point that was brought up on plurk yesterday, i love when discussion on a subject starts there sometimes, especially when it´s about blogging, since i am still sort of new at this.

The subject was basically how many event items do you actually need to blog one event? I believe it only takes one to be honest, show me a little of an event and i will want more, i don´t need 20/30 items, that might not go so well together, from it to want to visit, i need one good item, and slurls, and a link to a blog, that´s all i need, just show me how i can fit in that item with things i already have, even from other events, show me what you got, and i will enjoy it.

So here i am showing one item from Culture Shock only for now, this beautiful Turban from 22769 mixed in with a lot more things from other events, or that i just had about my inventory, and that seemed to fit together.

Also featured in this post is The Summer Beauty Festival, dedicated to cosmetics and that i will be showing a lot this month or until it´s end on the 25th.

By the way speaking of events another one will also start soon, on the 5th is The Ashraya Project, which i will also be blogging, and don´t forget the The WGD Nightstalker Hunt that started on the 1st and has made me get my Goth on for this whole month, well most of the time, and is the start of World Goth Day SL Celebrations, the hunt starts at Dare Designs, and you can find a list of all hunt participants here.
