Sending Prayers — Featuring Chop Zuey’s Venezuelan Poodle Moth

One of my favorite people in all the virtual worlds that I know, and I admit to only knowing one well and a few others very remotely, has surgery to look forward to in the near future, and while he's waiting, all the worries and what ifs run through his mind like they do for most any one. Juan Delgado affectionately called my Obi Juan Delgado, taught me many times and in that time, many things. My prayers are lifted to him.
I have to be honest. When I went up to Chop Zuey's boutique, I really didn't know what to buy first. I love being one of her models, and I wanted to have a few clothing items to go with my exceptional jewelry collection. I found this unbelievable outfit and it's name, "Venezuelan Poodle Moth" and the notation by the dress, "Google it..." So I did.
I put it on a few times, just because it's sooo unique and fun, but haven't had a real cause to wear it out yet. Maybe one of these days I'll have a party or something fun to attend, and I'll find this adorable little moth again, and the vibrant amazing way Belle Roussel put it together, and smile as I do.… Read the rest

Rock Your Rack and Rock Some More — Featuring Nya’s Closet at RYR, Plus New From no. 7 and !Lyrical B!zarre Templates!

Do you ever find yourself pausing and remembering that this is supposed to be fun? Once in a while, I realize that I'm getting ultra serious about everything, every deadline, every need here and there. I want to be professional and I want to retain my 'good name'. Those are both important. But I think one of the reasons we spend any time online (or anywhere else in our life) is to have fun.
When I created the look that went with this eccentric dress, one of Nya's Shop exclusives from Rock Your Rack, I deliberately went over the top. I was thinking about the vibrant colors of Tokyo fashion and how the world really feels so small when we interact online with one another but it's so huge when we're thinking of the distance from Tinyville SC to Tokyo, and all the wild and wonderful things the world offers beyond my front door.
I have a new head piece from Lyrical B!zarre Templates as well as new makeup from no. 7. With a compilation of all the things, the world spinning till it becomes a rainbow of brilliant color, shining brighter and brighter, I was really glad to tap into that fun moment and share this sneak peek to the Rock Your Rack Event.… Read the rest

Using My Living Imagination — Featuring *LI* Living Imagination, and A&A Hair

Couturier's Docks will have a whole array of new items very soon and this stunning gown from Living Imagination will be there. It's called Angel Garden - Heaven, and it made me feel like I was wearing a little piece of heaven. I wore one of her gowns for my MVW audition on Saturday and I'm including a photo of that gown as I styled it as well. I'm grateful to Bodza Mubble for her support and friendship.
I have one of those special sister friends who's always looking out for me, holding my hand when I'm anxious, listening when I need to talk, and who bonks me over the head when it's needed. She pointed out this hair style from A&A - Viennara. I hadn't been to that store in ages.
I'm not always sure how to style the darker skins from Kyxe Skins & Shapes but I love that she and other gorgeously darker skinned ladies have offered their input. And I love the challenge. Why do I change skins all the time instead of sticking with one? Because one of the nicest people I've met creates them in 12 shades and I want to represent all of them as part of her team of Kyxe Beauties.… Read the rest

*MochaWear* – NEW NEW NEW – A Brand New Store On the Grid

I actually styled this *MochaWear* Rose Cardinal gown for Hermione Mocha - aka Pattie Peacock - because (EXCITING!!) she's opened her own store and wanted me to share in her joy and her artistry by blogging an item or two from her initial releases.
I went through the things she shared and thought about each of our own personal approaches to art and how very differently they can appear. The same idea, a red gown for example, might be produced as many ways as there are designers out there making gowns.
I took two photos in one locale and then got busy helping someone and distracted. I then came in to do something else the next day and had 'photograph Hermione's gown' on the top of my list. It wasn't til I went to edit the photos that I realized I had duplicate sets of photos from two different days looks. You can see a few changes I made from day one to day two.
I don't think I could ever say enough to share how much I revere Belle Roussel. The work she puts in, hours and hours and hours of it, shows in everything she does.… Read the rest

I Need a Hero — Featuring Wicca’s Wardrobe at Gypset; Moondance Boutique, Lindy Shoes and -{ZOZ}- at Designer Showcase, and h.m.a.e.m. at Trempe

I have the jacket from her Nancy Tux on, along with the handbag for the same outfit. These items have been available at Gypset, until the end of July, so hurry! You'll also note new items from h.m.a.e.m. - the Sultana Pants in pink, new items from August's Designer Showcase - Lindy Madlin Black Heels, -{ZOZ}- (omgossshhhh I love ZOZ!!) Basic Polish nails and Moondance Boutique beautiful necklace that has a gorgeous chain in front and also drapes elegantly in back. Since you can't see the back in these photos, I'll use the necklace another time this month to share.
--- Longer Note Follows -- Featuring Heroes and Wicca Merlin Specifically

 I celebrate heroes who have impacted my life in a variety of ways. I do this in an internet/virtual world sort of way and also in the world away from the net. These heroes have come along at times in my world where I really needed them, where they really exemplified quality and character, love and compassion, intelligence and direction.… Read the rest

Hard On the Outside; Soft On the Inside — Featuring from The Month of Games Boudoir and 69 Park Avenue

I'm back just in time to wrap up the Month of Games event the last few days it will be playing. Siren Productions always puts together an awesome array of events and this one was even better than others, I think, because the theme really pushed designers to think outside maybe their normal range of ideas, and encourage everyone to have fun, and think 'game.'
Boudoir put together several really playful composite outfits and I chose to share this one, The Chess Queen. It's a little bit naughty but isn't that what you expect from a place that features fancy lingerie and bits and pieces meant to tempt and tease your special someone?
I also found a pair of mens boots I really liked in one of the outfits that was marked as a male outfit. I do like to borrow from men's clothing designers all the time, especially accessories. The essence of hard and soft appeals to me, and expresses a good estimate of me, the person behind the text and pixels. I'm hard on the surface, sometimes even perceived as cold by those who know me off line, but inside, I just want to be snuggled, to be loved, and to love and snuggle others.… Read the rest

Such A Strange Day — Featuring [[Masoom],

Here lately, I've had absolutely no control over my schedule regarding sleep, rest, awake time, or whatever else you call it when you're teetering somewhere in the ethos of none of the above... and it's something I just accept. Life gives us all sorts of strange hurdles. One day it might be a conflict with a friend. Another day it may be (not so) simple insomnia. When I can identify a problem, I can trouble shoot till I can solve it, but some things in life cannot be addressed so clearly or fixed so easily.


A friend mentioned that they were in for another sleepless night, and sounded quite frustrated by it, I could understand his frustration. Once our sleep clock gets off tilt, things in the rest of our world seem to get off tilt too. I know that without sleep, our cells cannot regenerate, the body has a more difficult time fighting infection, and dealing with all the things it's supposed to do while our body lays primarily inactive for a good 8 hours. Insomnia that occurs regularly may even become life threatening.… Read the rest

What Are Words For? — Featuring Romance Couture Gowns and {{BSD Design Studio}}

Recently, the people behind the new store Romance Couture opened their store with the flourish that can only be matched by the lavishly appointed gowns they sell. I've never had a reason to wear such extravagant gowns in my world off line, but a girl can dream.

In addition to opening their store, they've also introduced a new contest, one seeking the best representative to wear their items and represent their brand. I hope that the contest draws models in from all over the grid at all levels of experience.

Trying With All That Is In You — TBCF 1mm, 7 Deadly s{K}ins, [ME], AIDORU, Axix Animation, shine by [ZD], Kaithleen’s, ~Shabby Cat

As I watch a variety of reality television programs, I'm most often drawn to those that emanate a genuine sense of reality. I know that behind the scenes, many so called real shows are orchestrated to follow a loose script, planned and sometimes a scene occurs that producers end up redoing to make it better or more believable. More believable than reality?

This Magic Moment — Featuring TBCF Poudre, *Pc*, cae.b, [[Masoom]]

In every relationship you'll find this magic moment. It's the moment you realize you trust someone. To me trust means far more than love. I know, others may disagree, but I will share my point of view. Some of my point of view may relate to how I was raised, and your point of view reflects the same.

Love must exist. I think it's one of those precious things we need to survive. We eat. We drink. We sleep. We shelter ourselves from the climate. And we also love. With the variety of relationships, that love manifests itself differently. I try to be sure that I use love as a verb, as a thing I do in life.

Let Me Count the Ways — TBCF MM5, *SLAVE*, Dulce Secrets, JPK

Sometimes when we're most affected by something or someone, we're least able to speak about it. It could be something that we think about or daydream about all through a day, but to actually say it? Too scary!

I think the internet and chat specifically prompted me to utilize all the communication skills I'd learned growing up and express myself fairly well most of the time. I realized quickly that when exchanging instant messages, a lot could be lost in translation.

I remember hearing stories of the Pony Express, the postal system that the US used prior to the US Postal Service. They bragged that they would bring the mail, rain or shine.

Pushing Boundaries — Featuring A.F.I Designs and Kyxe Skins & Shapes

I have been pushing the edge of what I know to new extremes here in Second Life as well as my paint program. I use Corel Draw X4 for those who know about those details. I edit most of what I do with simple cropping, the occasional retouch of a missed pixel, but not too much of the fancy stuff.

I want to learn the fancy stuff, and I imagine that's why I'm in the process of asking questions to those I know who are already fantastic artists in this realm. Not every artist works with fashion, and that's neat too, and exposes me to other points of view. I get impatient with myself at times.

Halloween Fun — Featuring Baboom!

I get attached to different people in different ways, which makes sense, as it's not that different online than off line. I get to know people I see more often better than those who's only crossed my path once or twice.

From time to time I have the joy of working with people from all sorts of places in the world where their first language is something other than English and they speak/type English really well in Second Life yet spend a lot of time apologizing for not doing so. One of those neat people is Kyra Camel.

I Have Only One Burning Desire, Let Me Stand Next To Your Fire!

I did some major shopping in SL this week. I hope I can remember everything that I bought!

Did You Ever See a Lassie… — Featuring Evolve, Finesmith, and Face Paint

Every day, or at least most days, I work hard to put together at least one new look styled, and take a series of photos. I learn something new about photography, or a new designer, or something comes along and helps me with what I do.


It's a little like being a star. You never know what you're going to be wearing and sometimes, it doesn't even look quite like you. I have enjoyed trying out new skins this week from several new designers as well as clothing from a designer whom I've blogged before, but not their clothing!


In this set of photos, I've got a gown on from Finesmith as well as Finesmith jewelry. I've also got on Kyxe's Laura Shape and Laura Skin by Kyxe Angel. I got the chance to show you this skin as a result of good friendships and word of mouth, what a privilege. Playing a role, being something lovely in hopes of helping introduce new designers like Kyxe Angel or support designers like yula Finesmith who've been around Second Life a long time.


Besides working for some of the designers I've met, I also hear advice from them on many topics, almost always on the subject of fashion.… Read the rest

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous — Featuring Evolve, Glam Dreams and Banger Islands

Every so often, a show comes on television that celebrates someone rich and famous, fantasy or reality, it really doesn't mind. The ideas entice us to dream, and think of those worlds that feel so far out of reach. I don't know if everyone comes into this world with the yearning for such a life, but many of us seem enamored with it.

Evolve: CaptureFeaturing Evolve Capture1. Face Paint: Barbie2. Wasabi Pills: Lory3. Mirror's Enigma: Iona Native Skintone4. Baboom: Diamond Red Shoe5. Chop Zuey: Black Ice Set6. Candy Nail: Resort Sunset7. Poetic Color: Oriental Pearl
When we play hard in our Second Life, we have the opportunity to grasp those fantasy worlds, pretend to be rich or famous, and in some cases, become rich and famous. I remember Ansche Chung's first million making national news, and it was a million US Dollars! out of Second Life.

You Never Know Who’s Listening… — Featuring Ms. Darcy and Luziefee

Social media has broadened my internet horizon a lot in these recent days. I'm one of those old people who don't try new things so quickly. I know there's use in each new fad that comes along, but I also get comfortable in what I do and how programs run (until they change it completely like Flickr recently did!!)...


Facebook then to me was just another MySpace, and I had one of those, though no one ever used it. I had it. It was 'cool' at the time I created the account, but eventually everything becomes uncool. I just wasn't as quick to hop on the Facebook wagon. Now I have, and I meet new people, people who have nothing to do with SL, by linking with friends friends friends. I even have people who type to me in letters from languages that are so unique I don't even know what they are!


When they take time to look at my blog, they see an array of topics, whatever happens to be in my heart on any given day, and stories related to SL, but they have no real reference point on which to start.… Read the rest
