A Different Hallowe'en Visit

Dear Diary:

As a kid, I was always scared when I went out on Hallowe'en.  Lots of my friends loved it and dressed up in the scariest, grossest, awfulest costume that they could get.  I went more for the fantasy, girly type.

One of my favourite places to visit is the Meta Body display.  I've quite a few bodies from that place so I decided to dress up for Hallowe'en this year wearing one of the displays.  It's the type of costume I like and the great part is they are all free.

 
Meta Body is an interesting project to visit.  There are four levels to look at, and all are spectacular in their depiction.
 
Here I'm in the silver avatar at Level 3, a futuristic city with turning objects and a outside railway.
 
Fly out for a visit.  You'll enjoy it.
 
Good Night for now.

Taking A Walk In An Autumn Locale

Dear Diary:

It's getting on to the end of October so the gorgeous coloured trees in my area have faded a bit.  A lot have fallen to the ground.  That's provided hours of entertainment for the kids...and more work for parents who are trying to clean up their yards.  I'm afraid my walks through the woods are coming to an end.

In my second world, I was looking for a location that would duplicate the bright, vivid colours that are disappearing quickly for me.  And I found it!!

The sim, appropriately named, is Beautiful.


This sim is true to its name.  For me, the trees reflect my own surroundings.  I don't have a lot of red in leaf colouring but the yellows and oranges are brilliant.  Hats off to Inkie Loudwater for creating this place.  I almost think she did it for me but I know lots of other people enjoy it too.

Visit this wonderful location and experience a walk through a tunnel of colour.

Good Night for now.

Yesterday Was Global HandWashing Day

Dear Diary:

October 15th marked the day dedicated to handwashing.  It seems strange to have a day devoted to that but the original organizers hoped to achieve world-wide acceptance of this practice in an effort to slow down major infections.



It was started in 2008 at a conference of World Water Week.  The program hoped to motivate people around the world to wash their hands with soap and water as it has shown that this simple task eliminates much of the bacteria causing respiratory diseases or other infections.  Originally it was meant to focus on children to reduce infant mortality but it now encompasses all age groups. 

This year, more than 70 countries will have participated in promoting this day.

Good Night for now.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada

Dear Diary:

As I'm cooking my turkey, I'm looking out the window at a brilliantly blue sky framing yellow and red leaves of the trees in my back yard.  My mind is happy and I think of all the things I'm so thankful for on this Canadian holiday.


Of course, after a big turkey dinner with all of the extras, my friends and I try to stuff in a "small" piece of pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top.  Soooo good!!

Think of things that you're thankful for at this time.  Have a wonderful day with family and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Good Night for now.

What's Up With Computer Glasses?

Dear Diary:

I don't own any type of computer glasses but I do have a friend that does.  He was a big fan when they first came out and vowed it was the greatest piece of technology to be invented.  He told me that Time Magazine recognized Google Glasses as the best invention of 2012.


I had some negative feelings when they first appeared.  How about having a relaxing lunch out, when your friend has this head set on, obviously not paying attention to you?  What about the impact of driving while wearing this device?  There's a lot to consider.  But....

Now there's the coming event of the iwatch.  My friend declares that THAT will be the best invention ever.  The computer glasses are in his drawer.

Good Night for now.

I'm wearing:
Hands: Slink AvEnhanced (elegant)
Hair: Dura Boy 44

Sweater: Emery
Scarf: Mr Poet wide scarf

Computer Glasses: Blackburn's computer glasses (unisex)

A New Store to Me #11

Dear Diary:

When I visited The Instruments event last month, I picked up a cute dress from Sundaara Designs.  I wasn't familiar with the store so I decided to fly over to see what was there.  I was thrilled by what I saw.

Of course I had to buy!  These are a couple of dresses from my visit.


Sundaara Designs displays a good variety of casual but classy dresses.  The formal gowns are lovely and have a good range of colours and styles.  I loved the casual dresses that came in bright colour tones that were a little retro in their look.  Of course a few dresses are quite trendy, come in black and white, and would be great for a photo shoot for high-end modelling.  All the items are very reasonably priced so you can add lots to your inventory with little impact on your bank account.

I was truly impressed by the styles that were displayed.  Demos are available.  Everything is displayed well and it's easy to walk around and view the items. 

It's definitely a place to pick up a dress for any occasion so fly in for a look.  I know I'll be back for sure.

Good Night for now.
