A Minted Birdsong

January 4, 2012

Hey, lookie here, my first post of the new year.  Sorry there wasn’t more fanfare to be had, but school and the holidays and vacation and whatnot were a little overwhelming.  Anyhoo, I finally got back into SL and took a look at my overflowing inventory and various group notices and put a little something together.  (RED)MINT has an edgy little pink hairstyle out as their group gift and I put it together with some cute new pieces from A BirdSong and some favs from Nomine.

F*ing Perfect

December 6, 2011

Before I ramble, I’ll just say:  How cute is this little Meli set from *elymode*??  Adorable, as always.  With several piece and layer options, as always.  With amazing details and shading, as always.  With a ridiculous number of color options, as always.  Take a look at this outfit and all of her other designs on the marketplace or inworld.

Now, the ramble.  As I’ve mentioned in my last couple posts, I’m trying to get some pics and posts out there.  I fell out of my rhythm for a little while and I’m not quite sure how to get it back.  One of the ways I’m trying to do that?  I’m going easy on myself.  Or trying.  I judge myself far too harshly, overthink my pics, obsess over tiny details, etc.  I’m not a fantastic SL photographer and that’s fine, but it’s something that I enjoy doing and should allow myself to do without stressing over it.  Gone are the days of extremely long shoots with dozens of pics that all end up on the cutting room floor (for right now, anyway).  Gone are the days of hours spent in GIMP trying to recreate effects that I see from people with years of Photoshop and design experience.  I need to focus on being me and working to MY highest potential, not someone else’s.  Even thinking about it and mentioning it here to you makes me feel… caught with my pants down (or off, in Chloe’s case up there^).  Now, I’ll confess, this simple pic up there did take me two shoots before I got something I was happy with and it’s killing me to post it because it looks like Chloe’s neck is broken, lol, but I did it.  Anyway…  As the ramble gets out of hand, I’ll remind myself (and you, I know I’m not the only one that does this) that I AM f*ing perfect.  In my own way, in this very moment.  And if something goes “wrong,” that imperfection is part of being perfect too.

I Love Being a Girl!

August 17, 2011

I do, really! And I love being a blogger, too! I’ve been busy with RL and as I mentioned before, a little down and out, a little lacking in… passion. But I’m back! And feeling very delicate and girlie. So it’s fitting that I pulled out my Exposeur pose pack while I was wearing my graceful little Tiny Bird dress.  And how sweet is this Truth hair?!

Okay, I’m getting lost in my own little white, swirly, girlie fantasy here and forgetting the point of this post:

Rockberry is having a sale!! All single skins in the store are marked down to 100L each! It’s a quickie Back to School sale and it will be over by Friday, so get there fast! There’s also a Platinum Hunt item hidden in the store (the hint is something about apples and calories, I forget exactly).

 

So, thanks to everyone for sticking around and being patient with me. I’m really going to try to get back on the wagon. I have a ton of 52 Weeks of Color posts to catch up on and Agnes Finney is going to fire me before I even get to blog something for her, so I’ve gotta get crackin’!

Nomine Magpie Skin and a TOSL

July 17, 2011

Oooooh!  Newness!

Munchflower Zaius has just released her new Magpie skins at Nomine and they are absolutely lovely.  They still have that Nomine feel to them, but she’s redone a lot of the shading and redrawn the lips completely.  The larger packs (that I had to buy, I couldn’t pass it up!) have makeup, cleavage and teeth/no teeth options included, while the small packs feature one skin and the associated options.  I had to have the sexy Carbon makeups for the China skintone, and I’m wearing the “light” version with my ever-present Cheap Makeup lashes.

The layered tops are from Acid & Mala and are featured in Week 55 of A Taste of SL (follow the link for info on this weekly event).  Once I got the prims adjusted (I swear I’m putting Chloe on a diet!) I was able to take a look at all the great details on these shirts.  My absolute favorite was the shadow baked into the prim tie for the halter top.  Soooo cute!

Annnnd, my hair!  The Hair Fair is over now, but I sneaked in on the last day and grabbed one of Lamb’s short styles.  All of the styles you saw at the fair should be in each designer’s main stores now, so don’t worry if you didn’t make it in time.

52 Weeks Of Color – Denim (or Holy Crap, She’s Back)

July 4, 2011

 

 

I’m only a month behind on Luna’s Color Challenge!  I know, I know, it’s pathetic, but what can I say?  I’m back.  I’m going to be catching up on a handful of things in the coming days, so forgive me if I seem a little disjointed.  I have to get through the last few colors (jade, mahogany, mauve and electric blue) of the challenge, give credit to some great review copies I’ve gotten lately and make myself a new blog header, getting to the Hair Fair – among other things!

So I went simple for Denim.  Jeans.  And that’s it.  Sooo sexy.  I think my opinion of this look goes all the way back to Cindy Crawford or some supermodel in a black and white tv ad in the ’90s.  lol

And Dark Mouse.  What  a great jewelry set!  I’m wearing some the goodies Mouse sent out for June, so yeah, I’m late on that too, but better late than never, right??  The Waves and Sun set is great for all summer, so go out and get it!

Elymode @ Culture Shock

May 16, 2011

Here’s what’s truly shocking:  Culture Shock is still going on!  If (somehow) you haven’t heard, Culture Shock is a collaborative effort between CHIC Management, Modavia Productions and more than 150 designers benefiting Médecins Sans Frontières, or Doctors Without Borders.  Keep your eyes open for the exclusive Culture Shock items at each store, 50% – 100% of the profits for those items will be donated to the docs.

The donation item I’m wearing is the new Vita dress from Elymode.  Elysium Eilde stepped out of her comfort zone on this one and it was well worth it.  The prim portions of the dress were easily resized and adjusted (even for me) and they make for incredible details on Ely’s already amazing work.  I ended up channeling a little of Ely through the dress and her Windlight settings and I took a lovely, unedited shot in SL.  (No, that’s not an insult, the pic just feels a little…  fantasy and pretty to me.)

I’m still fighting with shadows, so unfortunately you all have to deal with me experimenting and bitching about the failed trials.  I hate this glaring light that I can’t seem to get rid of.  I hate that I had to reduce the size of my inworld snapshots so I don’t get crazy lines all over.  I hate that my shadows used to work flawlessly and now they don’t!  LOL   Anyway…   There is some more Elymode in this pic, a Vita variation and part of the Lazy Day gacha items she has at the store for only 50L.  This is a group exclusive color, but the others are equally adorable.

Edited 3.17 :  I’m using the second pic as my sorry excuse for olive in the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  I know, I know, I’m pathetic.  But I’m so far behind!
