The Geeky Meme

Yep! It's meme time again and this time, I'm doing Berry's Geeky Meme. I absolutely loved everything at Geeks N Nerds so I figured while I was showing off some of the goodies you can pick up there, I'd let you know just how geeky I really am. This embossed top from Ison is wonderful. It comes with a hud so you can mix and match out the shirttails and I absolutely love these bowtie heels from Although I'm wearing basic black, they come in a variety of colors and also feature a hud to change the bow color. Finally, my awesome pose props are from Nani poses. I love books so much that I just had to show them off. I mean who doesn't like reading right? If you haven't been to Geeks N Nerds, there is still plenty of time so hurry hurry hurry over!

1. What do you consider yourself to be? Geek? Nerd? Dork? None of the above? All of the above? I believe I'm all of the above. I love video games, technology, gaining knowledge, and I'm socially awkward. I don't feel that I'm strongly any of the three because I know there are people out there who fit these categories better than me but I do feel I possess qualities from all of them.
2. What was the first computer you ever owned? I really don't remember! I know it was a desktop though and I bought it when I was around 18. I hate desktops now though and will forever own a laptop.
3. When and how did you first get on the internet? With Comcast at the same time that I got my computer. 
4. Which geek fandom do you subscribe to? I'm very big on trivia. I love any kind of trivia game I can play and am a vast source of useless facts. I'm also heavily into SL obviously and I used to love playing Magic the Gathering but no one where I live currently plays.
5. Star Trek or Star Wars? Neither. I'm not a fan. Sorry!
6. How Geeky Am I? I got a 72%. I don't think this quiz measures geekdom accurately though.

Gamer Geek

Hey all! Sorry I wanted to get this post out earlier but my laptop has been giving me issues the last few days and anytime I went to take a pic on SL, I crashed. Luckily today, I was able to snap a few shots to show off some gamer girl inspired goodies you can pick up at the Geeks N Nerds Fair which opened today and runs till Dec. 8th. Featuring some of SL's best stores, this event focuses on all items geeky or nerdy so grab the LM below to head on over to this event.

I have to say that I'm really a fan of all the decor this event has and Second Spaces' stuff just made me squeal in delight. I used to be a big time gamer chick but after I had my daughter, I gave it up. You know mom duties and such! From the cables to the controllers, I was reminded of my early Nintendo days. If you're a sucker for anything game inspired, you'll definitely want to hit up Second Spaces' spot at this event before checking out all the rest of the adorable geek inspired decor goodies this event has to offer.

Walking In A Winter Wonderland

Hey all! Just a quick LOTD post to show off this adorable outfit I've been wearing the last few days. League has out these gorgeous boots at Shoetopia and all of the proceeds of the purple color go to Soles4Souls so I just had to rock them. Plus they went perfectly with the newest ColdLogic release so who could resist!

Also, check out my pretty face. She's the newest release from Al Vulo and called Ewa. Ewa comes in 5 tones and includes all appliers as well as lots of lipgloss options. I'm showing off the fairy tone with a peach gloss but you need to head over to Al Vulo and check these out for yourself to see all the different options.

Introspection Meme

Hey all! I'm using this meme post first to show off these earthy twig accessories that are available at The Fantasy Collective by ieQED. This hairpiece and necklace come in both a berry and non berry version perfect for any woodland pictures you'd need to take and if you join the TFC group, you can nab them now because a perk of being a member of this group is early access to this event. 

And now you can enjoy my answers to Berry's Introspection Meme!

1. Regardless of your current number, how old do you actually feel? I feel around my age. My life is basically where I want it to be. I'm almost 33 so I feel like I'm finally enjoying my career but that I'm still young enough to do anything that I dream of doing.
2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying. I hate going through life wondering what if so I try and if I fail, then at least I know I tried.
3. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? I would spend more time enjoying the little things life offers.
4. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? Hmm, I think doing the right thing is doing things right so I don't have to choose a response to this....or maybe I just did. :D
5. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? A worried genius. I love learning and the knowledge you gain by doing so. I already worry about a lot of things and am able to cope well so I'm not "worried" about it.
6. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? Yes. I'm undoubtedly loyal to my friends and will support and defend them in their times of need. I am not perfect but I believe I'm an awesome friend to have.
7. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now? Well, it was more like 7 years ago and yes, it still does matter to me. Things weren't handled properly and they do impact my life as well as the life of someone I love very dearly.
8. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive? I feel the most passionate when I'm working. As a registered nurse, you learn to appreciate the little things in life when you see the things your patients struggle to do daily. I thank God often that I'm fortunate to have my health.
9. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? No, but I'd probably take off for a year and travel a little.
10. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? I'd spend the day with my family and friends doing something fun.
11. What do you feel is the difference between being alive and truly living? Being alive is just going through life doing everyday things. Truly living is seeking out those moments that thrill and exhilarate you.
12. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? I guess it's because mistakes are discouraging and can hurt us or others. I am not usually afraid of making a mistake because I know that everyone makes them and that we do learn from them. 
13. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? Be more social. I'm very insecure in RL and because of it, I've shut myself off from a lot of people. If I didn't feel I was being judged, I'd probably get out there more and interact with others.
14. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? Life live to the fullest and never let anyone make you feel second rate.

Forest Huntress

The Fantasy Collective opens in just a few days and I've got some more goodies to show off to you. The theme this time around is Woodland Forest and this gorgeous velvet gown by the Library is one of the offerings that will be for sale at this fabulous event. Inspired by Titania and Margaery Tyrell, this laced bodice frock is perfect for all your roleplay needs. I combined it with this highly detailed headdress that is going to be in a gacha by the same designer at this event and since I'm in a sadistic mood, I grabbed a crossbow to complete my GoT look. Be sure to stay tuned to my blog for more looks from this wonderful event.

Dance Into Dreams Way

Hi readers! Today I've got a look at this gorgeous formal cocktail dress that is available at the Dreams Way Charity event from Dead Dollz. This charity raises money to support Autism, Asperger's, ADD/ADHD, and stroke survivors. Dead Dollz has generously decided to give 100% of the sale proceeds for this exclusive item to this fantastic organization as well as 50% of the sale proceeds of the other 3 dresses she has out for this event which runs till November 30th. As you can see, the attention to detail with this dress is amazing from the gorgeous silver embellishment lining the hemline of this dress to the fantastic fit so if you're in the dancing mood, be sure to check out this lovely number and support a wonderful charity.

Now let's talk about accessories! My gemstone necklace is from Sweet Leonard and comes in a variety of colors. It's got a frostlike quality to it that makes it perfect for all your dressy winter looks so head on over and snap this up as well. Also, in just a few minutes, Shoetopia, which I talked about in my last post, will open its doors to the public and you can pick up these fabulous strappy stilettos there at N-core's both.

Finally, Demise of Flight is back after a brief hiatus and has tons of new poses out for sale. This fun dancing couples one is called Just Us and is perfect for cutesy pics. Well, I'm off to finish this dance so have fun shopping all!

Pictures of You ~ A Shoetopia Sneak Peek

I've been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they're real
I've been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are all I can feel

Lyrics from Pictures of You by The Cure

Shoetopia starts tomorrow and although there are gazillions of adorable shoes to be had, I decided to show off some gacha goodies you can snag at this event along with these nicely textured flats from Ingenue. From poses to decor to Slink addon nails, the gacha prizes are wonderful and those of you who know me best know that I am a bit of a gachaholic so I had to play mostly all of these machines. Some of the machines have even generously donated a portion of their earnings to Shoetopia's chosen charity, Soles4Souls. Right now, this fabulous charity is aiding those affected by the tycoon in the Phillipines so be sure to stop by the gachas and try your luck after you've exhausted yourself trying on all the pretty shoes. Also, be sure to hit Ingenue first because you can't go wrong with a basic flat!

Disco Balls, Stripper Poles

She was a carefree soul
in an uptight world
Just trying to fit in.
Looking for love
in all the right places
that's how her story begins

Her mama didn't want her,
Her daddy didn't know her,
so she ran away
Looking for love
in all the wrong places
as she does to this day

Men her daddy's age
Drug are all the rage
Disco Balls, Stripper Poles,
Needles and Sin

Woodland Frost

Hey all! This post is all about accessories! First, I've got a sneak peek at these fun fantasy based accessories from Distorted Dreams that will be available at the first round of The Fantasy Collective. My autumn inspired twig hairpiece and my simple wood necklace will be up for sale at this event. The Fantasy Collective starts on November 20th and features a great lineup of fantasy based stores so be sure to save up your lindens.

The rest of my look is a combination of awesomeness from Collabor88 as well as some more new accessories by Sweet Leonard. I love this delicate acorn necklace and bag so much that I just had to add them to my look of the day. Sweet Leonard is always cranking out the cuteness so if you've never been to this store, be sure to check them out.

Oh and I gotta give special love to this laced up boots by Beetlebones. They are my absolute favorite item from this round of Collabor88 and come in five different colors for 88L each. I can't believe what a steal they were. I bought two and am probably going to pick up more. You should too!

Avatar Look Alikes Challenge

Those of you on Plurk today probably did this meme of Berry's and had a laugh over your results. I did it with a couple of my SL pics and my RL pic. I was happy with the RL one telling me I looked like Tiffani Thiessan and Katie Holmes even though I don't think I look like either of them but the first SL picture I used told me my avatar resembled a bunch of ugly men so I pouted for a bit.

I saw this pose by Kuro in Motion with a customizeable sign and wanted to take a picture for someone special in my life so after I was done doing so, I decided to try again with my new picture. I'm happier with these choices for my SL avatar's celebrity look alike even if I think it's just dependent on the hair.

If you haven't checked to see what celebrity your avatar resembles, you can do so here. It's a lot of fun even if the results are not what you think. I mean Boris Yeltsin really? :D
