F.L.Y. Miss Butterfly

2014 04 07 PB - April Kollective w Bird


This adorable pose by Eternal Dream Poses is part of their new release called Birdies available at the Feeb’s Street Gatcha Event. Inspired by the created tenderness and delicate nature of the moment the words for this post began to flow upon the page.

When the new year rolled around four months ago I made a promise to myself to follow the rules of F.L.Y. in both my real and second life. F.L.Y. stands for First .. Love .. Yourself and once you successfully jump the mental hurdles created over the years it does become easier to adopt this principle.

Each one of us bring many unique attributes to the world around us that accepting we are truly worth loving shouldn’t be so difficult. Yet along the way we mistakenly mix and confuse socially accepted behaviour with guilt to produce a view that loving ourselves is selfish and arrogant. We waste precious time compare ourselves to others thinking we aren’t of their ability, not factoring in we see only their finished product and not the steps or sacrifices they have made. We foolishly judge the size of our (and others) hips and thighs yet the love we have within our heart can never be measured by the size of our behind.

The video above left me with a thought to ponder upon :

If we all loved ourselves a little more would we be nicer to those around us ?

With a theme of Spring Picnic the new round of The Kollective opened on the 6th April. With spring my favourite season I was thrilled with the abundance of fantastic products to choose from this month.

2014 04 07 PB - April Kollective DS Makeup

Dirty Little Secret offer this ultra cute ruffle top with shorts set. The stencil inspired flower print on the short pockets instantly made these a hit with me. I am already looking for additional tops in my inventory to team with these shorts ensuring they will get good use over this spring season.

Available in the spring time colours of teal; ivory and coral; the Wild One Heels from Stiletto Style match perfectly. The finishing touch for my Garden Party attire found in the flowery make up set from Dulce Secrets. (An addition ladybug attachment for each eyelid is included but not photographed.)

With the picnic table filled with mouth-watering food prepared from Aphrodite Store (including 12 edible and animated props) all that is needed is to invite some people over to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.

With the Kollective running until 27th April you have time to wander around and make your selection.

      Thanks Peep. Your photo the other day using one of the Birdie poses reminded me I had these waiting patiently in my inventory. Like you tho, I’m seasonally challenged within SL. With winter only weeks away I’m using SL to its full potential to pretend its Spring, just wish the temperature gauge would oblige!

        I just said earlier today I think summer is officially over. Some days I’m happy to feel the chill of the autumn air, but today I was rugged up like a papoose and still felt cold!
