Last night I had the pleasure of going to Pixel Prom in Second Life with my dear friend Gorba McMahon.

Pixel Prom is an event that is hosted yearly by the lovely and talented Harlow Heslop. Each year she goes all out to create a beautifully decorated location and she makes sure there’s enough talented DJ’s around to play our favorite tunes.

If you’ve missed this years Pixel Prom be sure to follow Harlow Heslop on her Flickr or her blog so you will definately be able to make it next year!

I shared some screenshots on my Plurk during the event, that you can see here, here and here.

With many changes going on in my life, I decided it’s time for a fresh start. I have renamed my blog “It all starts with a smile”  it was the name of my homestead, that I unfortunately had to close recently. This way the name remains and it’s still a part of me.

So what else is new?  My friend Truth Hawks and I teamed up and opened up our own monthly event: Uber!
Uber will open up every last day of the month at midnight slt with a brand new theme.  Our first round with a Vacation theme,  has opened on July 31 and will run until August 29. We have invited some of the most talented designers of Second Life to bring you all kinds of wonderful creations.  Have you been to Uber yet?  I’d love to hear your feedback so be sure to leave a comment!

One of my favorite releases this round of Uber has got to be Lara Hurley‘s new skin Fae. For this release she’s redone the body and made new skintones.  Instead of doing just a few pictures to show you the skin, I invited Lara Hurley herself to join me for todays blogpost. Hard to find anyone better to show this skin!

House: Fanatik – Staniel Cay (Uber)
Deck: We’re Closed – Rustic deck coffee
Daybed:  Art Dummy – On the coast (Uber)
Sunhat & Whales on wheels: Art Dummy – On the coast (Uber)
Dog: Zooby – Ultimate Rottweiler
Bag: ISON – Maleese (Uber)
Slippers: L.Warwick – Flup Flops (Uber)
Sandals: Eudora 3D – Nereida wedges (Uber)
Poses: Bauhaus Movement

The Fae skin comes in 6 different make-up options and a whole lot of extra options to check out. Lara has included the HUD to tint your Slink body, and hands & feet so you will have a perfectly matched body. Lara added freckles, eyeliners, lashes, lipsticks and extra brow options so you can mix&match layers and create a very unique look for yourself.

My Crystal eyes are from Buzzeri, they will be released at the Kustom9 event on August 15. They are mesh and come with a HUD that gives you resize options. There’s also an option to reduce the sparkle but who doesn’t like pretty sparkly eyes?!

The teeth in these pics are from PXL and the poses are from Everglow.
