You Don’t Know What You Got ‘Till It’s Gone

You Don't Know What You Got 'Till It's Gone

The events that have unfolded over the last few days out here in Western Canada has been alarming and little hard to comprehend! I’ve seen the footage of the wildfire that has been in the news and caused the evacuation of Ft. McMurray, Alberta, and I feel complete terror for the people there! I escaped a burning home when I was young, and when dawn came that morning, the only belongings I owned was a nighty, a pair of panties, and a pair of hiking boots! I understand the feeling of losing everything, and it’s hard to recover from, mentally! I still have a fear of fire and have now stopped watching any news because of the anxiety I feel when seeing the out of control flames. My prayers are with everyone affected by the fires!

I’ve been to Fort McMurray quite a few times, back in my trucking days, and I’ll always remember one long lonely drive north on Highway 63 during the night of June 21. With it being the longest day of the year I got to witness the sun barely below the northern horizon as I drove north and when I arrived at my destination it was 3:30 AM and the sun had risen again for another long day. It always felt like I was at the top of the world when I was there. This fire isn’t about karma coming back to bite the area because of the oil sands, it’s about nature, and the people! Maybe things can be learned from this, like helping when others are needing it, having empathy for others, and to remember we’re all one!

Enough serious stuff, on with the fashion!

I’ll start with the Fresh outfit from FLIPPANT! It’s a cpmplete look, and I mean complete! The outfit includes the dress, in standard sizes plus fitted versions for the various mesh bodies, the Fresh Sandals, for Belleza, Maitreya and SLink, necklace, earrings, and bracelet, and the Vine leg tattoo with appliers for Maitreya, Belleza and SLink including dark or faded ink options. Everything is HUD driven with plenty of colour choices for each item! It’s available right now at SWANK, which runs until May 28!

Also from FLIPPANT, is the Flower Breast Tattoo and it’s the group gift for May! It comes in all kinds of layers for the classic avatars and has appliers for all the main mesh bodies! It also comes in a coloured version, along with the black one!

May the Fourth Be With You! After celebrating Star Wars Day, it was time to hit the new round of The Chapter Four! It’s the 3rd anniversary of this event and Le Poppycock is helping to celebrate the occasion! Le Poppycock has the Beautiful Day Pack A & B available, along with a cute couples pose and also an anniversary gift containing five high quality poses! Poses from Le Poppycock are never anything less than high quality!!

ReVamped is going strong until May 20 and -{ZOZ}- has a couple of nice appliers from the DSignature line of nails! This is from the Naturals White Tip pack which contains twelve nude tones! The appliers are compatible with Maitreya, SLink, Omega and the -{ZOZ}- mesh nails!

I’m again wearing the Emily, RARE mesh head from Genesis Lab! I’ve added a bit of eye shadow from the Sleuth Shadows pack from Veechi! The pack contains five shadows and comes in appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and Genesis Lab heads, as well as tattoo layers for the classic avatars!

The May hair is from Tableau Vivant and this is from the Ombre pack. It’s from a previous round of the Arcade Gacha Event but is now at the main store for your playing pleasure!

Also, the casual hands and high feet by SLink and the Lara mesh body by Maitreya are worn here!

I’m up on the deck at the lovely Garlic Breath at Melee Island for these pictures!
