GIA Style Card // Getting Over Winter

Ever notice that at the first glimpse of a ray of sun – a sign of somewhat temperate weather ahead – those who have endured winter’s harsh grip shed the cozy layers and bare their skin, despite  the lingering cold?

GIA Style Card // Help From My Friends


John Donne’s Meditation XVII is an eloquent reminder that we are all members of a global community.

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.”

It has been so heartwarming to see the Second Life community come together for a charitable cause once more – this time in support of our brothers and sisters in Haiti who have very recently been impacted by disastrous earthquakes.

Hitting the Beach: Day 4 of 4 – Montego Bay

Last stop on our four-day grid-wide voyage. Strawberry and I decided to make the finale fun and celebratory. To boogie down we decided to get grassroots and natural, donning gypsy-esque beachwear before refreshing ourselves at the seaside bar and dropping booty on the beach.  In flowing wrap skirts  and dreaded locks we’ll spend the last day of our road trip drinking Red Stripe (a Shirley Temple or ginger beer for Berry, though) and listening to the dub reggae tunes blaring from the speakers at the bar with Berry using every excuse and opportunity to wiggle her booty.

Thanks for coming along!

Hitting the Beach: Day 1 of 4 – The Tide is High

Before the final summer sunset fades, fellow adventurer, Strawberry Singh, and I decided to take a grid-wide voyage to soak up the sun while capturing Second Life’s diversity in swimwear. Whether you crave the exotic or kitschy, our community of inspired designers provides options for beaches from Anguilla to Oahu.

Today, our style destination conjures the “exotic”, fit for sauntering along stretches of sand along Calangute Beach (Goa) or Ipanema (Brazil) that host throngs of local and international tourists vying for the sun’s attention and the eye of a potential interest.
