An Adorable French Dancer

      When I saw the first picture for the Sarina skin from DeeTaleZ for the skin fair I almost immediately thought of Audrey Hepburn in the movie Sabrina. I knew I needed it being a fan of Audrey Hepburn movies. However when I wore it I realized I looked like a different film star from around the same time, Leslie Caron. If you don't know her you can Google her or I can tell you she was in a film called An American in Paris (1951). Gene Kelly was the lead in that one, but she dances too. She is even making appearance in film and movies today.

      In a lot of pictures you can find she has short hair, so that is what I tried to match after I realized I was more Leslie than Audrey. Still the skin makes me feel like a star from the 50's and that isn't a bad deal if you ask me!

Quiet Afternoon

Living in the southern part of the United States I don't have to worry about snow or other wintery nastiness. That means I get to spend more time outside, which is a lovely thing. This is what a typical afternoon would look like, well with a few changes. For starters it would be one of the kids hanging out with me, and they would be drinking something other than coffee. And to be honest I would probably be reading on a Kindle or using a tablet. Okay the girl child and I would be wearing Disney hoodies instead of sweaters, but otherwise it's totally a normal afternoon.

Game Night

I can't remember if I mentioned this before or not, but I have been playing RPG in my non-digital life for almost two years now. It was all new to me as I never played D&D or anything like it when I was a kid. The (mostly) guys that I play with have all been doing this since their youth so I was completely clueless. Every year we pick some sort of gaming system and setting. This year we are taking turns being the GM/DM. The first game we played I chose to be a bard. I basically just wanted to make up bawdy songs for my own amusement. As usual I had help creating my character so she is a whip wielding, lute playing half-elf bard.

This is what happens with the non-digital Mister helps me create a character. In fact I am wearing more clothes that I think my character does. This past weekend I didn't get to use her because the group was so small we decided to do a one off game. Guess who got to the the GM/DM, that's right this girl. It was my first time ever and luckily I didn't do as terribly as I had thought.… Read the restGame Night


I’m feeling fierce in this Bombastic set from Plastix. Sequins FTW! It’s part of this round of Rewind, like the hair I am wearing, Crinkle Fries from Doe (add me a cheeseburger please!)Also today’s skin I bought at Rewind. Atelier Pepe mostly does Catwa appliers, but really, they should do LeLutka more often because HOT DAMN on my Simone head!!  One request…. a no brow option, because these brown ones, while on fleek, are the only possibility on the applier! The lipstick is one of the defaults on the LeLutka head HUD, the applier is no make ups at all. priced at 980, it’s pretty steep, but I find it still worthy!
I paired my outfit with Mandala‘s KAHUKUIHUKU which is an older release, but it fits the mood and the Rewind Y2K theme! Also, my backdrop is Haikei‘s rare skybox from this round of Kustom9. Funny how I can never resist their machine, when for the rest, I can’t be bothered with gacha anymore. Happy weekend!… Read the restY2K

The Journal Kiss

Today I attempted the scene in the rain from The Notebook. Again it's not a perfect remake. I would have been at it for a lot longer than I wanted to be if I tried that. So instead of a lake there is a lovely pond. But hey there is still rain! No quote for this one, just the epic kiss.

I can not lie. I am obsessed with men with beards lately. I think that is why it makes this one my favorite and perfect for Valentine's Day. Even if you are alone today, just remember I still love you ♥♥

I’m just a girl

Today's trip down lovers lane brings us to Knotting Hill, and a little travel bookshop. If you haven't guessed and I am just referring to a place, but also the movie Knotting Hill. This time I am taking on the scene where Julia Roberts (Anna) confesses her feelings to Hugh Grant (Will).

Anna Scott: After all, I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.

Here I give you my version of that scene, with some tweaks of course.

Not that you can tell from this photo, but I had and entire set created to be the travel bookshop. Of course the angle I chose cut off all of it. Oh well.

An Airfield Goodbye

It's Valentine's Day this week so I was inspired to do my own creative license version of some famous romantic scenes from movies. Today I am starting with the scene in Casablanca where Rick and Ilsa part company. They had this exchange...

Rick Blaine: If that plane leaves the ground and you're not with him, you'll regret it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.
Ilsa: But what about us?
Rick Blaine: We'll always have Paris. We didn't have it before...we'd...we'd lost it until you came to Casablanca. We got it back last night.
Ilsa: When I said I would never leave you...
Rick Blaine: And you never will. But I've got a job to do too. Where I'm going, you can't follow. What I've got to do, you can't be any part of. Ilsa, I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you'll understand that. Here's looking at you, kid.

Since the film is in black and white I chose to take the picture in black and white.… Read the restRick and Ilsa

This background seemed perfect for a few reasons at this moment. For starters the blog has been vacant for over a month. Between computer issues and non digital life craziness it just hasn't been happening. Hopefully that will be changing now. Also my mind has been a pretty vacant place. I think that is just a dramatic way of saying I have/had bloggers block. This usually happens when my inventory is a mess. Am I the only one who finds a chaotic inventory to be a distraction?

As I was sorting things, I put together this look. I thought it was pretty cool so I thought I would share. Oh and I have to share a funny about this photo. As I was uploading it to flickr, the mister asked what I was listening to. He assumed it was an album cover. I think I could totally see that now that I think about it.

Let’s Talk About Proportions

Get Away

I took some respite at a mountain cabin for a day or two. I tried my hand at art and learned I’m just not very good at it. I also met a very cheeky snowman who seemed QUITE delighted to meet me. I can’t say that I blame him. My much needed polar relaxation is all thanks to this truly lovely cabin from 22769 which you can still pick up at THE ARCADE but let’s face it – the CLOCK IS TICKING. If you haven’t been or there is a thing or two you’d like to try for, the time is NOW. One more day and then we all have to wait ! I hate waiting. One more day until New Year’s Eve. I don’t know what my plans are. Maybe I will just stay here. Itsonlyfashionblog.com
