All magic comes at a price

It’s Halloween this month! Yay! Though I have to admit, I haven’t always appreciated Halloween. I found it a very scary time when I was younger, but I’ve grown more fond of it – not because I’ve grown fond of scary things, but because of the mood and excitement of the people around me. The atmosphere is what I enjoy.

All magic comes at a price

With that said, Salem’s open – and there’s something for every Halloween lover out there. ♥ Dead Dollz has released the cute skull dress I am wearing in the photo – you can see the full dress and the awesome backside (of the dress 😉 ) below the credits.

Also to find in my post is Izzie’s – a brand I have supported and loved for years! This time she has released a set of fresh claw wounds and a set of aged scars to match – and I have to say, I feel she does it best. Wounds & scars come for both head and body – they aren’t made for Genus, but I used the LAQ omega applier and it worked fine. ♥

Alaskametro (I always have to double check that I spelled this right) has released the makeup I am wearing, also at Salem. It comes with a good selection of glitters and plain lipstick and eyeshadow. I normally do not buy makeup, but this I actually quite like despite how dark it is. ♥

For Uber, Glam Affair has released another cute skin, “Annie,” this time for Genus head. It comes with different shades of eyebrows and a no brow version if you want to add your own, as well as three different kinds of freckles and moles. See the Lelutka Uber release here.

My hair (which I absolutely love) you can find at Hair Fair, which is definitely an event worth supporting. A percentage of the sales go to “Wigs for Kids,” and I personally bought a lot more than usual, knowing that it supports such a good cause. Cancer can hit us all without warning, and I’ve personally had it close to home with my brother undergoing cancer treatment currently. Thankfully his is going well still – fingers crossed. ♥ You can read more about Hair Fair, the good cause and see the shopping guide on the official Hair Fair blog.

Last, but not least! Cae is releasing the Skull Collection. The set consists of Necklace, dangling earrings and studs. In this photo I am wearing the dangling earrings. The HUD contains the usual beautiful gem colors and metal. However! This time the HUD also contains a black metal if you want to go really dark and gothic for Halloween. ♥

What I am wearing:

New Alaskametro – Black Magic @ Salem.
New Cae :: Skull Collection – @ FaMESHed.
New Dead Dollz – Mini Skull – Black @ Salem.
New Glam Affair – Annie Genus Applier @ Uber.

Autumn is the season to find contentment at home by paying attention to what we already have

The days are really getting colder here, and I’ve broken out my favorite sweater – and not just in Second Life! Outside it still looks like spring, but the colder winds definitely tells a different story. I honestly love this time of year, bringing out the warmer cozy clothing, scarves and coats, tea and soup! ❤
If someone asked me to name a favorite season, I wouldn't know what to pick, because I love them all. Each season has its beauty.

Autumn is the season to find contentment at home by paying attention to what we already have

My sweater dress is from Kaithleen’s and comes in a wide array of colors – and with stripes. You can also color the neckline and dress separately. ♥ It has a beautiful open back, which you can get a glance at in the ad photo below the credits. ♥ Kaithleen’s has also recently released a great outfit for the men at Cosmpolitan! My man tried it on and we both loved it. Don’t miss out, guys! ♥

Today, I’ve been going wild at Uber and spent way too much (as usual), but there are just so many lovely releases. Foxcity has released this really cozy backdrop cabin and pose set including this awesome hanging chair and a cup to match the poses – the chair contains the poses as well, so you can just sit and pick which pose you want ♥ – this poser maker just keeps taking it to the next level. ♥ I love watching her grow and expand.

Truth has worked his magic again and given us the adorable Aislin hair and I’ve immediately added it to my favorite button on the toolbar. ♥ It has 10 different styles, mirror versions included and three different sizes for each one. Did I mention I am totally addicted to Truth? ♥ Not just because of his hairs, but once I lost nearly all my hairs and spend hours putting a NC together (this was before redelivery was common) where I was wearing the hairs I lost, Truth was the first to reach out with a helping hand and put a massive amount of L$s in my credit to replace some of them. That is truly something I appreciate and value, and will never forget – a creator with an exceptionally kind heart. ♥

Bueno is also at Uber, and released these cute boots that are just my style – I love the loose fitting in boots like these, and I immediately fatpacked them. ♥
Sole and boot can be colored separately. ♥ I can’t really say much about these other than they are perfection. ♥

Dust Bunny has released a cute branch coat hanger and umbrella holder at Uber too, and I am in love. ♥ I love naturally looking creations with wood that isn’t necessarily completely straight up and down. ♥ The coat hanger comes in four different colors; gold, black, white and light pink. The umbrella stand also comes in the same four matching colors. ♥

Fair(e)ly Fantastic.

In a few days, on the 19th of April, Fantasy Faire 2018 opens. For me, this is one of the best of the once-a-year events. Not just because of the amazing designers, but because it supports a cause that can hit anyone without warning, whether you’re rich, poor, famous or just beautifully ordinary.
I’ve had cancer close to home, as my mother suffered it, and now my brother does. My brother has been lucky, and the treatment is going well, however there are many out there, who aren’t so fortunate, where cancer gets the upperhand and families suffering the loss of loved ones.

Stuff dreams are made of

When I went to my first Fantasy Faire, I immediately fell in love with the concept, and it was a whole new world for me. Not to say that in Denmark, we do not do charity, but nothing of this scale. It is only in the more recent years that we have really embraced charity concerts, fundraisers etc., and I am really glad we have!

And this year, I’ve been fortunate enough to get a peek behind the scenes at the Fairelands, and my love for Fantasy Faire has grown even more after experiencing just how much effort and LOVE that really drives all these wonderful people to work SO incredibly hard to make the Fantasy Faire run smoothly and gather as much as possible for Relay For Life. I’ve had friends say “You may not see me or hear much from me the next two weeks, because I am going to work at the Fantasy Faire.” As a new blogger for Fantasy Faire, and after watching the chat for a bit, I finally dared to say something about me being new, and “just” being a blogger. I was received with a warm welcome, and immediately corrected by several designers and event coordinators, saying that bloggers were the soul of the Faire – and it is really eye opening to see the love that everyone put into this event, and how wonderful an atmosphere these people create.

And that’s why I Relay – in hard times such as battling cancer, love, laughter and friendship is just as important as donations. We all have times when life kicks us down, and a helping hand getting back up in form of laughter, friendship, love matters more than one might initially think.

Why Do You Relay? I’d love to hear your experiences, and why you relay in the comments below. ❤

LIFE can be so randomly beautiful. Embrace it. ❤
