Appreciate

Lift up your head
And remember what your life is
Don’t have to give it all away
When you’re left for dead
In the middle of a crisis
You must appreciate the day

~ “Appreciate” by Paul McCartney

My quote is sent out to a friend who has received some bad news, and I want to give him some encouragement. It feels like there is a lot of bad news we receive from friends in SL but the truth is that if we appreciated what we have more, we would *hear* the good news too. The other night a friend who has not been on SL for a while logged on and had the BEST news for me. He had met a beautiful woman in RL and they had gotten married. He spammed me with wedding photos and gosh he was right—she IS beautiful.

None of that is pertinent to this look except the cheer I wish to evoke with the look. Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus have come out with a new leather jacket that can have the tank top or not. Both have color-change HUDs and of course, the colors are coordinated with their other pieces, so I wore their more recent skirt release with its absolutely fabulous tushie. (Paul, please consult the mesh ass people and show them how to do it?) The textures are typical L&B—lush, nuanced, perfectly shadowed and tangible. I want to run my hands all over myself just looking at this jacket. And the snakeskin top is amazing. Add great capris from Ivy Burner (who is also a mistress of texture), gorgeous jewelry from Maxi Gossamer, and funky stilettos from NikkiIrene and I have a great look!

I couldn’t help but put on Queue Marlowe’s whimsical hair from Collabor88. As a friend said, How does it do that? Queue won’t do something unless it’s fun and doesn’t let a bad day EVER get her down, which is why it’s always good to have her around, even if it’s in her hair. My skin is Peachiemuah’s newest doll skin with dimples, soft features and pretty eyes. A touch of lipstick from Mocksoup Graves brightens the natural-toned face. Peachiemuah’s skins come with appliers, so you can wear your Slink hands and feet as I did.

Finally, a shout out to my pal, Rogan Diesel, who has finally given us some more girl poses. Keep it up, sunshine!

There’s something there
But you’re frightened to invite it
Beware of pushing it away
Show that you care
And be certain you don’t fight it
You must appreciate the day
