A New Queen of Wonderland!

Today I'm blogging a little early, as I'm heading off into a wonderland of live music that I'm VERY excited about later - it's Five Finger Death Punch if you're wondering ladies and gentlemen - but I couldn't leave without allowing Rudh the chance to slip off into her own little Wonderland! By her own, I kinda mean she's going to be doing a take over of someone else's LOL... Alice's in fact, because what Wonderland would she want other than the REAL wonderland. 
She's about to invade one of the Mad Hatter's Tea Parties in the Storybook Forest, and in true Rudh style, she's going to look fabulous whilst doing so! 
Aside from the fact that she has a thing for looking fab, this cannot all be put down to Rudh... The amazing Queen of Hearts outfit is actually from the 1313 Mockingbird Lane Epiphany gacha collection, and everything that she's wearing - shoes from Breathe, and wig from Exile not included - come from this collection. Even the amazing Flamingo Croquet Mallet is an exclusive for the Epiphany - the kind you will get for trading 25 points for! 
One last thing to mention, before she sits down and starts scoffing cake is I felt it might be a good idea to include a little close up... The tiara for the collection is adorned with hearts and playing cards, BUT more than that, she has this sweet little Cheeky Word - a current group gift from FIKA by the way - carved into her lip, so EVERYONE has no doubt as to who she is!!! Otherwise, it's OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!!!
What is she wearing;
Hair: Exile - Something Wicked in 5 Colour Wicked Pack 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Face Wound: -Fika- - Cheeky Words (Current Group Gift) 
Ears: ANDORE - Delfiya Ears

When the family is away...

So it's been a little quiet around the Gators MC today, which in so many ways is GREAT. I love having the family around but sometimes, it's nice to just have a little time to myself to hide away and do things that make me feel good about myself. It started with some picture taking, then some gentle inventory sorting and finally PJ time and playing games on my phone, which thanks to some rather wandering hands may or may not have become something else LOL... 
Get your minds out of the gutter, I was behaving watching cooking videos on Youtube - at least that's the story I'm telling and sticking to!
It was fun to just laze around on my bed, getting hungry watching those mouth watering videos - hehe! That was until I got so into the video, that I almost fell off the bed! 
On a side note, this pose is awesome isn't it?! It's a brand new release from -Extra- - YES THEY ARE BACK BABY!!! - and it's one of a collection of "Selfie Girl" poses that is available for the Saturday Sale today!
Anyway, it's a back to business as normal day for me today - MC meetings and the like. 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Argrace - TSUMUGI in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Mask & Eye Patches: Kitty's Claws - Fantastic Facial Masks 
Top: Asteria - Mel Top in White 
Cardigan: [Cynful] - Snuggle Cardigan in FLF Pack 2 
Pants: Petite Mort - Novelty Flannel Jammies in Sweet Dreams 
Pose & Prop: -Extra- - Selfie Girl, Pose 2 
Teddy: BoOgErS - Lost Bear (No Longer Available!)

Surviving Hell - Australian Bushfire Wildlife Benefit

A couple of days ago I posted a rambling about the Australian Bushfires Wildlife Benefit which is set to take place over the Australia Day weekend. Plans were being set in motion for a grand event called "Surviving Hell - Australian Bushfire Wildlife Benefit" in which Kay Weston - of Image Essentials -  and Ally Dwyer Applewhyte - of Something New - were getting the ball rolling seeking support for the fundraiser! 
Well, today is the BIG day... The HUGE event that is Surviving Hell - Australian Bushfire Wildlife Benefit will start today, and it's going to be amazing! Congrats to Kay and Ally for organizing something that should - I say should to be optimistic, WILL is more likely - raise funds and awareness in support for the RSPCA to provide care to so many of the injured animals that were caught in the Australian Bushfires... 
My Thirsty Kangaroo friend and I - he's a pose prop from Image Essentials by the way, that will see 100% of sales donated to the Australian Bushfire Wildlife Benefit - are here to share all the details because trust me, aside from the good feeling of being able to donate to the cause, you WON'T want to miss this event!!!
It is split over two parts... The performances and the shopping!! Since I'm a bonafide shopaholic, we'll start there... 
The shopping side of things is being hosted by the minds behind FaMESHed - located on the FaMESHed X sim - and the list of participating names is EPIC! Stores like Apple Fall, Lapointe & Bastchild, Lelutka, Blueberry, Image Essentials, Something New, Witchcraft, Cult and Nantra - to name just a VERY SMALL few - will be donating either items that will have a 100% donation towards the event or will be giving away some fantastic raffle prizes that you can enter to win! One of these prizes is a YEAR LONG ACCESS to the FaMESHed Blogger Group with early access for 2 friends for an entire year! Who wouldn't wanna win a prize like that?! I know I cannot wait to enter, that sounds totally amazing! 
I told you it was going to be EPIC, but wait as if that wasn't enough there will also be the events taking place on the performance sim - as a side note, there will be a full set of vendors and some of the raffles taking place at the performance sim too! There will be 19 live singers taking part on the performance sim over Saturday and Sunday, and there is something for everyone - all kinds of styles and tastes are being catered for, with some amazing singers performing and sharing their talents to raise awareness and funds for the event! Before I finish, I just want to share with you the schedule for performances, and say; please check out this event, it's for a great cause and every little will help to save and protect the injured animals of Australia!

The Roaring (20)20s!

I love the fact that people are getting into the spirit of the Roaring Twenties again... The last time the Twenties were a thing it was a time of economic prosperity, a time of change and positivity following the devastation of the war years. Now we're back into the Twenties, albeit 100 years further on, and how times have changed. I'm really hoping that the prosperity of this period becomes apparent with the title of the decade! Let the good times roll, the Roaring (20)20s have begun!!
I have always loved the vintage 1920's that gorgeous Art Deco style with it's sleek designs and bold colour combinations. The Jazz Music, the fashions and the stories that come from this time period are always stylish and fun, and I cannot get enough of the artworks with their bold colours and strong prints! 
So I decided that in the spirit of the Roaring Twenties I'd do something a little Flapper styled perhaps?! A flapper for the modern Twenties, a Roaring (20)20s flapper! The idea came about because of a pose set created by NANTRA - for the current round of The Liaison Collaborative - which seemed to tie in seamlessly with a new gacha collection from LEMME called "Crazy 20's". Both the flapperesque poses and the gacha collection - which include the amazing Back to 20's backdrops - were crying out to be the life and soul of a party! All it took was a few little extras and the right outfit, and Rush was ready to party, (20)20s style! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Claudette in Reds Pack 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Necklace: (Yummy) - Satin Bow & Pearls Set in Black

Champagne: [ keke ] - Champagne Bubblissimo Bucket in Silver

Piggies for a Princess

I have always been a bit of a collector - when I was younger I'd collect key rings, or erasers. I went through a phase of collecting Minnie Mouse stuff, and now days I have some weird and wonderfully odd collections. Yet recently in SL I've found myself amassing quiet a large number of pigs?! Daddy's girl is a little piggy - that's a fetish right?! - but when I was organizing all of my goodies, there seemed to be quiet a lot... 
That's not all of them in the photo by the way, those are just the tip of the iceberg, and what's even weirder is that in RL I'm not actually a fan of pigs all that much?! I mean they are cute, and very intelligent beings, but they just wouldn't get me crazy collecting them!!
Ther are just so many piggies, I don't really know where to start!! Part of the collection is actually a release from Inner Demons - the Piggy Chair, the jar and one of the cushions all form parts of the Everything Piggies Gacha Collection, and I guess when I saw everything piggies I kinda went with it, rolling on the rest LOL... I went to town decorating my babygirl dream bedroom with piggies!
All these soft piggies are perfect for when she wants to bask in the Afterglow, which leads me in fact to a couple of new releases straight out of the Afterglow event! This adorable "Bridget" Nightwear - worn here in a tan colour which is just one of a selection of colour combinations - from Tooty Fruity, and the even more adorable Astara "Timeout Chair" for Daddy's Princesses that misbehave are brilliant new releases available until February 6th at Afterglow!

Australian Wildlife Needs Your Help...

I don't normally discuss much RL world events in my rambling space, mostly because I like to keep things light hearted and happy, but the situation in Australia has had me gripped for weeks now. The fires that keep on burning - although luckily it seems that the rains are starting to fall and life is beginning to spring back into some areas - causing so much destruction is heartbreaking. 
I feel for the people that are being caught up in the affected areas, but the heartbreaking feeling is definitely coming more from the chaos, devastation and loss of the wildlife, in a country that was always so protective of it's indigenous species! It's been estimated that a billion animals have lost their lives - although the exact figure is not known - and Koalas have even entered the danger list for animals that may go extinct! I'm devastated!! I've always wanted to see - and hug - a koala... We need to do anything we can to help stop this from happening! 
So when I heard that a team of Aussies - lead in part by the amazing Kay Weston of Image Essentials - in SL are putting together a fundraiser, I felt compelled to help spread the word! 
Currently designers are being sought that would be willing to join the fundraiser! Designers can participate in a number of ways ranging from donation kiosks in stores to donating items for a raffle and even setting up an event booth with items for sale to raise funds for the cause! All donations made during this event will given to the RSPCA - https://bushfires.rspca.org.au/ - to continue to respond to emergencies and help them assist animals and communities in need.
The events will take place over the Australia Day weekend, when there will be music festivities, shopping and lots of donations - I hope - made to save some animals that are very much in need!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hat & Hair: TRUTH - Parker in Redhead 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2

Hunting for Toy Mice

Today I have been shunned by both my fur babies!!! I had to take them to the vets for their annual check-up, and my cat more than my dog, went through something that I am assuming she feels was a form of torture considering the way she's now avoiding me! 
The best thing about fur babies though is that if you treat them right, they will NEVER be mad at you for long! All it takes is the right kind of noise, a gentle stroke and then throwing a toy in a playful way, and we're back on speaking terms... That is until she happens to lose her toy and makes out it's my fault... 
Anyone with a cat - possibly a dog, or even a child too - will have found themselves in this predicament more than once I'd imagine... I seem to spend a large amount of time fishing toy mice out from under the couch where my darling little assbutt kitty likes to hide them from me! 
Now aside from the ramble this photo came about with the help of a Yoga Day pose - from Secret Poses - believe it or not... Think of it differently, imagine there's a yoga mat and there's a LOT less clutter and you can see the yoga pose now, right?! I was testing out the poses from the set and it instantly made me laugh as it's something I seem to do even when I'm not doing Yoga - this pose I mean - and it's mostly to fish kitty toys out from under the sofa... It just goes to show the great versatility of Secret Poses' poses, I just hope that they don't mind me thinking outside the box with them a little - or should that be off the Yoga Mat?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Kitten in Redhead 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: Cynful - Rainy Baby Hoodie in Yellow 
Shorts: Cynful - Rainy Baby Shorts in Petroil 
Shoes: REIGN - Glitter Lola Sneakers 
Pose & Cat: Secret Poses - Yoga Day, Pose 4 
Toy Mice: MadPea - Crazy Cat Lady's Starter Kit Gacha Collection in Toy Mice
