April 22:”What comes next, I see a light.”

How’d you spend Earth day? I had the best day! My physical results are the starters of a farmer sunburn (eventual tan), but there’s so much more. Sadly, emotional results are left to interpretation because they’re difficult to quantify. Just believe okay? 😉

Carved into stone “Unwilling to come undone”.jpg

Nevertheless, I’ll try to explain. Hanging around people with similar goals is fun. It’s easy. My local #ScienceMarchLV was actually a rally, but marches and rallies aren’t just marches and rallies. They’re marathons because the finish line requires endurance.

I'm with her

I may or may not be preaching to the choir, but take it for what it is. My thoughts are my sole responsibility, yet I love to share.

I do. Do you?

By laylahlecker – Fashion colLecker. Visit I do. Do you? for original post.

It’s safe to say we can all agree marriage is a commitment that goes beyond a typical relationship, even long term common wealth relationships. I just realized filing taxes as a married middle class couple sucks. I miss 2016 tax filing time. Anyway, married couples do have something our common wealth counterparts do not. Weddings!

I do

Chop Zuey’s Sub Umbra Floreo Bridal is the perfect piece to add that last and perfect final touch to any wedding gown.

Today is the day.jpg

If you’re going to commit yourself to filing married, you might as well start it off in style, ya know? No second thoughts. It’s too late!

Overthrow the effigy

Divorce only works when one stops loving his or her partner in marriage. Plus, I joke. I’d much rather have my hubby than tax perks (See RL husband? I love you so much I wrote about you in my SL blog. Bonus points?)

From here to eternity

So, that’s my advice for the day. I also advise you to visit Designer Showcase and Pose Fair as soon as possible because April is going to end. We won’t see another April until next year. Weird when one thinks about it that way, eh? Speaking of Pose Fair, I thought you should know. Corpus’s Editorial poses have attitude and emotion. Manifeste is one of my oldest favorites when it comes to pose makers. They also mix fashion, emotion, and attitude. Looks like they are meant to be. 😉

Down the Rabbit Hole: A Beginner’s Guide

By laylahlecker – Fashion colLecker. Visit Down the Rabbit Hole: A Beginner’s Guide for original post.

When it comes to new challenges or adventures, sometimes you have to go for it all alone. Here’s my journey in a nutshell. FOXCITY gave me the narrative and I’m just running with it! FOXCITY is one of my new go to pose makers for Bento poses.  At this year’s Pose Fair, Satomi Masukami didn’t disappoint. I’m a sucker for emotional poses along with props and appropriate backdrops. After all, I’m telling a story.

I whisper things, the city sings 'em back to youWhat inspires you? If you haven’t thought of anything, think about it. My inspiration in RL and SL comes from what grabs my interest and many times it comes from the web.

Foxcity Night OwlIf you are inspired, are you alone in your quest? That’s okay. You’re not really alone.

Green LightOther like minded people are right there with you. I’m right there with you. We just have distance in the way. Close your eyes and prepare for your trip down the rabbit hole.

Down the rabbit holeLiquid courage is acceptable, but don’t depend on it. The buzz wears off ya know?

See you on the other side.  😉

Do you want to know a secret?

By laylahlecker – Fashion colLecker. Visit Do you want to know a secret? for original post.

Sometimes I can’t sleep. Okay, I know. That secret sucks because it isn’t salacious or juicy. If it helps, my secret may be your secret. When insomnia hits, we may have a lot on our minds. See? You aren’t alone. If you have Pose Fair on your mind, you are definitely not alone. Animations breathe life into our Second Life personas. So…are you  ready?

I am numb

Pose Fair starts Friday, April 14th at 12pm SLT, and it runs till April 29th. I’m giving you a sneak preview into what to expect, especially if you are a fan of WetCat. “Daddy’s Girl” Bear Prop offers 9 single pose options and 6 couple pose options. If you want, change the teddy bear’s coat with 7 choices. “Cyber-Link” WebCam Prop, below, is available in naughty and nice. After all, life fluctuates between PG and R (or XXX in some cases <3).

The world is sleeping

I have to warn tall avatars, though. I’m very short in RL, so I like to go to the extreme opposite in SL. Wetcat Flux used short and curvy shapes when creating “Daddy’s Girl” and “Cyber Link” as she mentions in her note. If you’re a tall avatar too, be prepared to take advantage of the ability to adjust your position.  Don’t worry. It’s easy to adjust!

Now, get some sleep, if you can USA peeps. If you’re on an international time zone, better stay up. After all, Pose Fair 2017 starts at 12 PM SLT! 😉

I have a love/hate relationship with Sundays. There’s a lot love because it’s my day off. Once the sun sets, I remember the end of Sunday marks the beginning of the work week.

Know your enemy

Work again? I’m still so sleepy from last week lol.

And so it begins:”How can I protect something so perfect without evil?”

By laylahlecker – Fashion colLecker. Visit And so it begins:”How can I protect something so perfect without evil?” for original post.

Sometimes we do what we gotta do.  For what it’s worth, I am not condoning evil. Simply put, evil is in the eye of the beholder in some of its most dubious cases. Someone once told me I was evil because I made up an elaborate lie to avoid inviting someone to a party. Evil? No. Immature and stupid? Sure.

And so it begins

Yup. Sometimes we do what we gotta do.  😉

When in doubt,”try to live in a lovelier light.”

By laylahlecker – Fashion colLecker. Visit When in doubt,”try to live in a lovelier light.” for original post.

I’ve lived in two states: Paranoia and Delusion. Lol, no I’m kidding (kinda). I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada a few years ago and the weather conditions aren’t that extreme, unless you consider Las Vegas in the summer and I’m putting that off as long as I can. Right now, Las Vegas is so cold right now and windy as hell! I can’t imagine living through a hurricane or tornado. So, I painted a picture of what I wish it was like. Blue skies, flowers, piano music playing in the background, and one gorgeous dress.

Glitter Swank March

Glitter’s Liz mesh cocktail dress bridges the gap between red carpet glamour and girly appeal. Liz is a new item for Swank’s March round, so if you haven’t been by and you love glamour and girly, I highly suggest you TP to Swank before it’s too late.

“Worldly comfort is an illusion.”

By laylahlecker – Fashion colLecker. Visit “Worldly comfort is an illusion.” for original post.

Dear sister:

I hate to break it to you, but there is usually a bigger picture. It goes beyond he said she said scenarios too. It’s literally opening up one’s perspective and it ain’t always fun.

Things are not what they seem to be

Trust me. If things seem wrong or dangerous, they probably are. Broaden your scope.

The first appearance deceives many

Once you broaden your scope, you’ll see the bullshit for what it is because “worldly comfort is an illusion” (Mirabai) in your particular case. Now once you do, it’s your turn.

And I leave behind this hurricane of fucking lies

It’s your turn to walk away from what deceived you in the first place. Emotional wars are exhausting, and sadly so many, including me, fight for the wrong reasons. You probably won’t read this. One, you don’t have a blog and two, you probably forgot about my grown up virtual Barbie doll games/online journal. If you do, know I love you and I will be there when and if you need help walking away.

Love Always,

Your Sister

Out of body. Out of mind.

By laylahlecker – Fashion colLecker. Visit Out of body. Out of mind. for original post.

Spring is my favorite season. Though, I could do without the wind. It’s been said when March rolls in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb, but in Las Vegas, they like to keep us on our toes. I shouldn’t complain. Compared to other states, NV’s weather may be perfection.

out-of-body-out-of-mind

Have you been to Designer Showcase‘s March Round? It also rolls in for bang each month. March brought in a brand new build along with new items. PurpleMoon Creations‘ Amberly Dress is one of those items. It’s almost like a make your own adventure story. Remember those? If you don’t, it’s easy. You make choices and find out the consequences. In this case,  the decisions won’t get you in trouble.
