Oh yeah it’s true Summer is in full swing! As fashion never gets old or boring I am here with hot suggestions for this season’s wardrobe. The popular summer colors I am seeing is Pastels and Neutrals!
Designers take a modern twist on the traditional by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom. The greatest thing above all is that because we are so accustomed to seeing them as nature's background, they can be creatively combined with any other color.

Never in my life as an upcoming nerd or geek would I have imagined it being cool. Being a nerd and/or geek was shunned in my formative years as a student in lower education institutions.
Talking about gaming, technology, intergalactic activity and a desire to participate in aforementioned list made us an automatic target for wedgies, revile conversation, smear campaigns, and, in extreme cases, having to defend ourselves in courtyards after-school.
Being nerd also had its perks, especially in the realm of academics, which is all that really was of consequence to us gain of mega-brains.
We excelled at subjects that other found difficult to wrap their diminutive brains around making us favorites of the Academia. We were doted over by teachers, counselors and the school for raising their national rankings on the catalog of premier schools. We were often sought out by fellow classmate/schoolmates for help with homework or test tasking tips to help the academically ailing cure their stupidity "disease".

Sports venues have come and gone in Second Life however, one venue which has every golfer talking about is AERO Golf Club, owned and created by Kaja Ashland.
Kaja was kind enough to sit down and have a chat with me about the club and to also tell me a bit more about herself.
