Foreign Queen

“When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in.” – D. H. Lawrence
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru

I wanted another chance to show off the some of the lovely pieces being offered by Mandala during this round of Collabor88.

Happy Fourth of July!!!!

Happy Fourth of July to Everyone! I hope that you are all enjoying the holiday; I know that I am so far.

I started to think about how old our country is and I wondered if there was a way to mix in the old with the new within SL. So I put together an outfit with something from last year and something just released not too long ago as well.

Also The Dressing Room Fusion opened once again today! I found a really nice product from Izzies; Water Drops that you can add on as a tattoo and/or prim attachment. It’ll make a few photos a bit nicer without having to work so hard for a nice water effect on the body.

I Dream Of Sushi…?

First off Happy Fourth of July to all of my fellow American Friends. I will be trying to get a Fourth of July themed blog or at the very least a picture done before the end of the day (RL Permitting), so if it’s posted tomorrow then I apologize in advance.

This Morning I stopped by The Chapter Four which opens each month on the Fourth. This time in particular there was something that I really, really wanted… Let me Explain… After the Picture and Credits….

Continuing on with my long-winded story….
I believe that I can speak for a great deal of SL Residents in saying that .Birdy. is quite addicting. All of the animals to hold and love, always something new being released which tops what had just come out weeks ago. It’s a drive, a need to try to have them all. ‘Gotta Catch Them All'; Yes I pulled out Pokemon… but that’s what it feels like trying to catch them all and even more so with that one common you can’t seem to get your hands on, or that ever elusive rare which can drive us mad.

So when I learned of what was coming to The Chapter Four this month from .Birdy.; my heart truly skipped a beat. First off I am a cat person, second I love sushi…well the type that is cooked or not raw fish. Fried Sweet Potato Roll, Bacon Asparagus Roll… so good but I digress…

I knew that I needed the set if not only to be able to take a picture with it. Then I began to think about it more and more before an odd idea came into mind all because of a very odd type of dream that I had. I believe the picture captures part of my dream pretty well. I wish I could have executed it a bit better to be understood but I am pretty happy with the picture given this was a bit new for me. I’m not that artistic to say the very least…. I hope that you all enjoyed and enjoy your holiday! ♥

 

 

Catching Rays

Oh My Gacha is open and there are quite a few wonderful things waiting for those who go. I feel in love with my new poses from Nani; which isn’t too much of a surprise given that I am a self-proclaimed ‘Pose Whore’ You can find this pose set ‘Catching Waves’ and another called ‘Skater Days’ there from this maker.

Broken Record….

Rhapsody by The Hottie Cooterati Experience is in full swing. This event is all about music from poses to clothing and everything in between! There are eight different musical genres represented; Electronic, Disco, Punk, Pop, Country, Classic Rock, Metal and Jazz. The event is open from now until July 12’th so don’t miss out.There are  I’ve had the chance to drop in a few times and will be going back a few more times before it’s over I do believe.

I am so in love with the poses from .Infiniti. made by Brandi Monroe. I was really drawn to the ‘Put Your Records On’ set. As soon as I saw this pose in the set I knew that I wanted to try and create something a bit different with it pushing my limits a little bit by add shattered record pieces with Photoshop. You see the result below but I’m going to try again soon for a cleaner effect.

Another reason to stop by is the live music that is going on at times by different DJ’s within SL. In particular you should try to stop by and catch my friend Crem Brule who will be playing again on the following dates. July 5th at 4pm SLT and July 12 at 4pm SLT. She also play for the opening day of the event and it was amazing, I’ve listened to her many times, as I am a Director at one of the clubs where she works but don’t take my word for it; head on out and listen for yourselves.

World Cup Fever!

I have to admit that a big part of me not blogging as of late has to be because I am watching Soccer(Football) quite a bit. I have the fever, even more so now that the United States has advanced to top 16th and now in do or die mode. Our next game is against Belgium on July 1st at 3pm CST! I’m excited; Are you? I’ve even gotten my gear but don’t tell I am secretly pulling for Argentina as well which might cause issues of they both win their next matching for they would end up meeting..

Practice Makes Perfect!

I know that I haven’t really been blogging as of late; lack of inspiration and the realization that it is now indeed summer; meaning my time is split in half between RL and SL. But I think that I might have finally gotten my groove back by playing around with pictures once again. I was finally able to do a few things that I had been wanting to do for a while now; Making water drops and figuring out skin and eyeshadow. To many it might not see like that big of a deal but to a beginner like me it means to the world to have finally figured these little things out.

 

Meh...
