Record Release Party


I attended a release party held at Dragon Moon for one of SL's own Live Music performers, Strum Diesel aka Sean Kagalis. The CD titled Passive - Aggressive is available for download.
It will also be pressed for a LE vinyl record. Catch one of Strum's shows to learn where you can get a copy. It's always fun to hear the musicians give the background on their songs. Support SL live performers; they're one of the most unique features of this world of ours! 

I enjoyed the release party in an outfit and accessories from January's Designer Showcase.

TGIF!

Friday and the weekend ahead holds all sorts of possibilities. Start with these sales events which have opened this week:
Color Me Cute A sales event for child avatars and those who can wear children's clothing. Most of the items seem to be designed for Toodleedoos, but other styles were also available. Mostly dresses and hoodies, with a few cute kawaii style accessories.
Limit8 Offers sales items and a few gachas. Each creator offers a limited edition item in limited quantities. Clothing to furniture to poses are available. It just opened Thursday and some of the LE are already sold out, so the sooner you visit, the wider your range of choices.
Underdog is a sales event for new creators or established designers who have changed their style. Check it out and you may discover the next SL trend.

I'm all set for adventures in this cute dress by DE. Boutique. It comes with a Black, White or Blue denim top and has a hud for 8 skirt textures. The Black Shoes are included with the dress.

Secret Garden

She'll lead you down a path
There'll be tenderness in the air
She'll let you come just far enough
So you know she's really there
Then she'll look at you and smile
And her eyes will say
She's got a secret garden
Where everything you want
Where everything you need
Will always stay
A million miles away

Weekend of January 13

Where shall I go? What shall I do? 
Frankly, my dear, there is a lot to do in SL this week. These are just a few of the places I visited this weekend, which all you sales and gacha addicts won't want to miss ....

Chapter 4 Jan 4-Feb 1 This monthly event is always fun to visit. The latest releases from all sorts of designers are available. There is a little of everything including clothing, makeup, hair and home accessories. There are items for sale as well as gachas. 
Gacha Guardians Jan 1-31 New round and new items with over 60 gachas and 35 gifts for group members.
Midwinter Faire Jan 11- 17  Another sales and gacha event with free gifts. Mostly fantasy and Gorean items. This event lasts only a week, so get over there! 

On a more personal note, I'd like to introduce my newest sponsor: DE. Boutique
I was familiar with goodies from DE Boutique through their participation in Designer Showcase (see my Jan blog for an example), so I was delighted when they asked me to blog for the store!

I went wandering though the store today and there are lots of lovely items to be had.
The dress I opted for is cute and so totally me (those of you who know me, know I will never be accused of being normal)! See my Flickr for some other versions of this dress. The textures are wonderful and, like most DE.Boutique items, come with color change options. The Ester dress and Lily Heels I'm wearing are at very low introductory prices in the new release area.

Job Interview

The job listing read "Assistant needed to manage the office and to handle my appointments and speaking engagements". Mr. Middle Management obviously needed help! He had totally forgotten I was scheduled for an interview. His phone rang a dozen times while I was waiting. I'm soooo tempted to start taking the calls, but I suppose that would be presumptuous...
He needs me! He just doesn't know it yet. I'll soon be running this office and some day that desk will be mine!

I'm wearing a I-mean-business outfit from DE.Boutique. The outfit comes in a fatpack with 12 colors and the boots in 20 colors. I completed the look with the versatile jewelry set from Moondance Boutique and nails from DaneMarkZ, all available this month from Designer Showcase.
