Sending Prayers — Featuring Chop Zuey’s Venezuelan Poodle Moth

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.

Please mark your calendar for September 1 thru September 15 to shop for content created just so we can raise money to find a cure for breast cancer. There are donation jars all over the sim where this event will take place and there’s an online option to donate directly found here:

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. Laila will release in all 12 shades over the next few weeks and I look forward to showing you all of them!

*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. Quality products for more than fair prices. But there’s more. She constantly has items she gives away, so even the most restricted budget might own a pretty bit of sparkle at Chop Zuey just because that’s the way it works. Today’s Mistress Enchantment set offers something I’ve actually not seen often, a very long chain. It’s beautiful and accented the gown wel (Read more...)

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. These heroes helped create the me that I am today and I know that because life is ever evolving, I haven’t met the last hero who will influence my life yet, and I hope I don’t for a very long time.

I know she doesn’t have a FB name, but she probably has numerous friends and followers and supporters who do know her via this medium. I know she has more on her blog (I’ll share her links below) and more in the world we shar (Read more...)
