Out of body. Out of mind.

Spring is my favorite season. Though, I could do without the wind. It’s been said when March rolls in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb, but in Las Vegas, they like to keep us on our toes. I shouldn’t complain. Compared to other states, NV’s weather may be perfection.

Have you been to Designer Showcase‘s March Round? It also rolls in for bang each month. March brought in a brand new build along with new items. PurpleMoon Creations‘ Amberly Dress is one of those items. It’s almost like a make your own adventure story. Remember those? If you don’t, it’s easy. You make choices and find out the consequences. In this case,  the decisions won’t get you in trouble.

“My head’s above the rain and roses”

So, I had an eventful week. I had a birthday. I went to a workshop. I learned that I’m a ‘get appreciated’ personality type (according to the workshop). Good stuff huh? Although, that’s not the most important take away from this week. I also learned I could pass for a real life Laurie should I ever want to change my name.

and-the-truth-thats-in-the-message

The workshop dude thought my name was Laurie. When I first started working with one of my co-workers, she called me Laurie and called another co-worker Lisa whose name was Laurie. I know what you’re thinking because I thought about it for a bit. Unforgettable was my first thought, so I had to do some digging. I mean, my self-esteem was on the line!

just-shine-a-light-into-the-wreckage-so-far-away-away

I decided a name is just a name. Sometimes, I don’t feel like a Lisa (my formal name is actually Alisa; huh lol), and I feel more like a Laylah. Then there are days I feel like Sunshine. I don’t feel like a Jasmine anymore, though. Those days are over. The moral of my story? Sorry, but I don’t have one. This story is only beginning (or at least in the middle of the book). 😉

Las Vegas Winters (What? No Snow?)

I swear my outfits go through this every winter. I’m a southwestern girl by heart, so my move from Albuquerque to Las Vegas kept me in warm winter weather. The only snow I really see is in Second Life!

Designer Showcase’s December Round has the best of both worlds as there is chic fall weather attire and cozy winter wear to choose from.

“Would you lie with me and just forget the world?”

“Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life.”

Show me a garden that's bursting into life

“All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see. I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all.”

Would you lie with me and just forget the world

“If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?”

I’m so sing-songy today! Important notes: Designer Showcase’s September round goes until the 26th; LaVian & CO’s Claudia ensemble and wedges are color changeable via a HUD; NANTRA’s Peace. Love. Wine. pose set has three poses with props and makes me yearn for a glass of vino.

In like a lamb (lion)

In my personal life, March came in like a lion, so I hope it goes out like a lamb. My boyfriend turned fiancé is having a couple of issues. Truthfully, they are due to me, so I shouldn’t complain. 😦

His attitude, much like the weather, affects my moods. However, the beginning of March also brought Designer Showcase‘s newest range of designer goods. Mood back up. 🙂

It’s really over

Summer is my favorite season! True, it’s brutally hot in Nevada, but I still love the idea of summer barbeques, swimming, and pool parties. I’m gonna miss you summer! I suppose fall is technically here, but mind you, I’m still dealing with 90 degree + weather, so forgive my fashion snafu.

Goodbye Summer Sad Panda Face

Designer Showcase’s September round, has a little bit of this and a little bit of that, if you are still prone to summer wear, but understand the fall fashion season has hit. My post is my last ode to true summertime fun and fashion. Sniff.

You Only Live Once

I’ve been a little preoccupied this week. The last Arcade event demonstrated that I have no self-control! I thought I fixed that bad habit, and maybe I did? No…I really didn’t. The Arcade is addictive fun and hey! Like my Spearsong T-shirt reads, you only live once!

Acid Lily at the Arcade

The SS mesh shirt and vest are available at Acid Lily until Sunday. There are loads of others to choose from, but this one was most appropriate for my situation. Oh and a word of advice if you decide to try your luck at the arcade…tell yourself you only are allowed to click once more on each Gacha. I kept telling myself that…but I said once many times. Ok, that’s bad advice, but I have no discipline. For a sure deal, head on down to Acid Lily before this week’s collection is gone.
