What Is Your Passion?

This weekend, I caught the marathon version of this season's Top Chef. Like many reality television opportunities, this show offers something very special and important. One of the participants had to make a difficult decision near the end of the series because his wife went into labor while he was far away in Alaska competing and he chose his passion to create fine foods and the opportunities potentially his, should he win the competition rather than packing up and heading home. He missed his daughter's birth. Was it a good thing or bad thing? I don't know how to quantify such a choice. For him in that moment, he embraced his passion and he stood strong in his belief that his family supported him even in his absence for such a great moment.

The people I've met in Second Life show different levels of passion. To some I suppose it really is just a video game and that's great for them. To others, however, it's part of their life. Despite the fact that it occurs in virtual space, it still occurs and means a great deal.… Read the rest

Oh, beautiful Hanako I am infatuated with you! Adam n'Eve released this beauty very recently and I have to admit when I first tried her on I thought...hmm, not sure if she fit me right. She was so lovely I was determined to make her work so I simply messed a wee bit with my shape and I was more than thrilled with the results. Hanako is just a lovely, lovely skin with six different makeup choices and tons of options just like all of the skins released from AE. Hairbases, nail gloves, dimples, freckles, breast dehancer/dehancer and also a bare eyelid layer that I chose not to wear. Really, reallly a lovely skin.

Oh did you notice my cute new hair? Lelutka released three new styles today and I would say this is my fave but the truth is that I really am crazy about all three. Pretty new hair and skin deserves new awesome pants from ryvolter. Goood shopping happening in SL this weekend!

I Knew

I’ve been wearing this new dress from Emery at My Attic for 3 days straight now. I should probably get changed but I am so in love with it. It’s only 95Ls and comes in a variety of colours, so for that price you can easily get an assortment! I’ve been wearing a lot of black lately though so for this picture I just stuck with that. Also adore this new Nydia hair that Truth released yesterday. I love the contrast of a really light blonde or white with all the black I’m wearing so that’s what I did! Finally, a couple of posts ago I wrote about old group gifts that you might have and hadn’t taken advantage of yet and it reminded me of this Petal edition of Glam Affair’s Amberly that I hadn’t worn, so I added that too! Hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend, Coral

NEW Mesh Crop Tops @ [Insatiable]! 2/24/2013

Hi, loves!

I'm back...again. I decided to break up all of my news so that I don't overwhelm you guys. I do have a new release to share, though! Remember the Winter Crop I put out awhile back for The Black Market? No? Maybe?


Well, I finally made more. The catch? Not all of them have text. It's a long story as to why, but it mostly boils down to me branching out and trying something new, and seeing how it goes! It's worked so far with the Rosalie Skirts, so why not take that risk again?

Okay, too much text. These babies are L$150 a piece, and L$900 for the fatpack, and come in 15 fabulous colors! :D


Alright, I'm done clogging up your feeds! I hope you like them!

Here's your limo, and don't forget to check out the Lazy Sunday post!
TP to [Insatiable Fashions] HQ!

Take care, everyone!
