Tutorial Thursdays – Blogger Editing Tools – Picmonkey: Part 1 – Quick Photo Processing

I have had so many suggestions for tutorials, I want to thank all those who have contacted me inworld, formally on here. Thanks for your positive comments, and your interest in keeping this project of mine going.
For today's Tutorial Thursday I am going to be showing you Picmonkey, a fun browser site, that allows you to do some quick editing, without having to download anything onto your computer.
There is no requirement to sign up to the site to use it, though there are premium abilities with a paid account. All these special features are clearly marked when browsing the different menus on the site.
I am mainly a Photoshop user, but when I blog on my other avatars, I like to be able to do it quickly, in most cases, as blogging on 3 separate avatars, on 3 separate sites, can get a little crazy at times. I use Picmonkey for my two other avatars. 
I will be doing a continuing series on Picmonkey, but today I thought I'd show you a quick way to get a decent photo processed using the site.… Read the rest

“This summer’s gonna hurt like a motherf***er.”

I think I’m getting used to Las Vegas summers because at 102 degrees F, it’s a fine day for sitting by the pool. It’s much too hot when it’s over 110. Those days require sitting in the pool! Tasty Couture’s Nora is an exclusive piece and is available for this month’s round at Designer Showcase. Here’s your lift and don’t forget your SPF! Credits:

Hair Fair Designers — Leyla Flux

Self Portrait of Leyla Flux 2015 KoKoLoReS Skyler for Hair Fair 2015 It’s Only Fashion: What’s the craziest thing you ever did in Second Life? Most exciting? Silliest? Is there a story you can share that captures your Second Life experience?  Leyla Flux: Actually, I don’t think I ever did something really crazy in SL. I came here in 2009 for the premiere of my Machinima movie “Saving Grace” at the Machiniplex theatre, which was run by Sol Bartz, better known as Phil Overman Rice in the machinima world. My film was not a Second Life movie but made using the program Moviestorm and footage taken in the game X³ Terran Conflict, and I was asked to do an interview with Overman and the interested viewers at the venue. That was in February 2009. So I stood in front of the audience, knowing next to nothing about SL, in my noobie avatar. It was fun, and frightening at the same time! Later that year, my film was shown at the Machinima Expo, by then I was already infected with the SL bug and looked much more stylish than in February.… Read the restthe smell of you

you and all the stars are making my heart glow

Tableau Vivant released four new gorgeous styles for Hair Fair 2015 that I am showcasing in the pics above. I love that M4rilyn Magic did four completely different styles. Oh and brand new textures and huds for these releases too!

Scarlett can be worn with or without the hat. A beautiful bun at the nape of your neck makes this style just a complete stunner. I paired the lovely style with a brand new Pixicat dress from Kustom9.

Cara is just gorgeous with her beautiful crown of braids that sits on top of a long and flowing style. Emery released a perfect Maxi Skirt, Ariel, for Collabor88 that paired with their Seashell top fit Cara just perfectly.

Last Train Home is a sexy and short style that can be worn to match any number of styles. The Pixicat Aquatic dress  from Collabor88 is just perfect showcases just how sexy short hair really is.

Last but not least, the Ten style is long and parted down the middle. Love it. I paired it with one of the two latest releases from Foxes for Collabor88.… Read the rest

My Mushroom Hideaway

Everyone needs their own little hideaway, some of us only get a small space in their home, but Miss Elfy here gets a mushroom hideaway. Sure it doesn't have all the comforts of home, but there is a rug and and bench and I am betting she has some books stashed away in there too. I know if I had a hideaway like that I would have a whole bundle of books tucked in there and maybe a little cooler for drinks.

She is all minty and pink and like a sweet summer treat.

Estivation and Summer Tendencies

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it. ~ Russell Baker Hair: Tableau Vivant, Last Train Home **2015 Hair Fair** . Dress: !Lyrical B!zarre Templates, Ville . Shoos: {Kokoia}, Mikonos . Pose: Katinks . 12,000L current bid on Skip Staheli pic. Last day to bid July 25th, 2015. It’s turning into a long hot summer for so many of us, hard to believe just a few month ago we were wishing winter would just pass us by. Personally, I love summer. Why? I like to estivate. You know, just lie really still, breathe more shallow, and let the warmth seep into your bones. Yeah, I’m kinda weird like that. Hope your weeks progressing with the enjoyment’s of summer!

Blithe Photography Contest Winners

In Fashion, Harlow Heslop, Second Life · Tags
I have been absolutely overwhelmed by the response to the Blithe Photography Contest that took place. Every single entry was beautiful, unique, and captured the true spirit of the region. I spent a long time this morning sifting through all the entries trying to decide on the winners, and quite frankly in my book you are all winners. That being said, I promised a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize, so I must choose! Thank you so much to all of you who took the time and effort to enter the contest. Thank you for all of the love and support you have shown Blithe. Your artistic interpretations surpassed my expectations entirely. Also, before mentioning our winners, I must send a shout out and a thank you to Ms. Sanura Snowpaw. Sanura was kind enough to contact me and offer additional gift cards for her store Somnia as an extra prize for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and also 8 honorable mention gift cards. It was such a kind gesture, that did not go unnoticed, and I’m certain the prize winners will love the extra surprise!… Read the rest1stplace

Stuff to Do in SL: RFL Comedy

What a week so far! RL has been busy and I'm also working on writing new jokes. I need fresh material because I'm part of a group of performers doing a stand-up comedy show for Relay for Life on Saturday.

I haven't left my virtual cubicle here at Thorne Industries* since I found out about the show! You can tell that I'm working hard because I put my hair into pigtails - the official hairstyle of whimsy and toil. Well, maybe not of 'toil' exactly, but it's out of my eyes and won't get caught in any machinery. Also, combined with my tight crop jeans, pig tails keep me aerodynamic. 

My set on Saturday will be short, but I want it to be sharp. I wrote some material I think would be good - but I'm waiting to hear whether the show needs to be G-rated: a well crafted boob joke has a lot of value, in my humble opinion. 

Take a break from your RL yard work and/or your SL terraforming this weekend and come laugh with us at the show! The show will be on voice, but you can just listen in and type in any LOLs if you don't want to talk. 

Here's your invitation:
