The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments. If you don’t celebrate those, they can pass you by….

It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences…

I’m an Exquisite Black Queen! I like, love, and celebrate myself. I don’t fit society’s beauty standards, but I’m beautiful to me. I know my worth and I respect who I am as a woman. I’ve got beauty on the inside and that makes me empowered and powerful. I’m fearless and comfortable in my own skin. I’ve got flaws, but I’m still confident! This Queen right here is flawed yet phenomenal, valuable and unique! – Stephanie Lahart

Give your heart and soul to me, And Life will always be La Vie En Rose….

 

Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn’t methodical, but jazz isn’t messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians. Jazz is abandon. – Nat Wolff

Jazz stands for freedom. It’s supposed to be the voice of freedom: Get out there and improvise, and take chances, and don’t be a perfectionist – leave that to the classical musicians. – Dave Brubeck

 

PocketGacha is starting it’s September Round on September 15, 2017. KraftWork has made a beautiful Shotgun Jazz Club. The craftsmanship of this collection is beyond beautiful and is a must have for those music lovers as well as lovers of all things vintage.

I also did a teaser video of the Shotgun Jazz Club Gacha Set by KraftWork which you can watch above. I really enjoyed putting it together and how this collection was able to inspire me to create something that I am truly proud of.

Love Looks Not With The Eyes, But With The Mind..

Come live with me, and be my love,
And we will some new pleasures prove
Of golden sands, and crystal brooks,
With silken lines, and silver hooks
~ John Donne ~

Magical Universe..

“When the reason for a thing’s being illuminated, it doesn’t hold the same mystery it does when it is unknown, which is both a wonderful and a horrible revelation. It’s wonderful because it’s like peeking into the universe and understanding a tiny bit of its complexity. It’s also horrible because a little bit of magic is removed from the world with each discovery.” ― Bradley Somer, Fishbowl

Monday Meme: Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge!

I’ve mostly been out of the blogging loop and have decided to stay that way for the most part. But as always I am slightly pulled back in by; The Mother of Bloggers, Queen of Photography! Yes this is my personal name for her and I will continue to use it but who else could I be speaking about other than Strawberry Singh!

So she has decided to being Monday Meme’s once again and I couldn’t be happier, as it’s something that I have always enjoyed doing. Also I must note it’s something that can make me blog at least once a week again which isn’t too much for me. Anyways onto this week’s Meme!

Meme instructions: Share an image of your Second Life avatar smiling for a yearbook photo. Don’t forget to share the link to your post in the comments and add your pictures to the new Second Life Yearbook flickr group, you can also share them in the Blog Memes flickr group if you like.

 

Second Life Yearbook Challenge 2015!

I know, I am not smiling but there is a reason for that. I have the AnyPose Expression Hud, which I find quite useful for pictures. There is one thing, I HATE the smiles.. looks like I am going to break into someone’s home and murder them as they sleep…or as if I was giving too many ‘happy’ pills to try to stabilize my mood. So then I went looking at the Loud Mouth which also had me left more than a bit disappointed. So my theme slowly began to take form, I’m angry; this should be so fucking simple! And there I got it, channel my anger into this and make a future mug shot picture because truth be told, I hated smiling for school pictures and was made not once but twice to retake pictures by my mother! So I just used my [Whatever] Teeth 2.0 Pierced that I always wear but with the ‘Hooked’ Mesh Alpha Included! So there you have it, perhaps a bit outside of the box but this is me that we are talking about after all.

 

 

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...

Falling Apart

 

 

Flaming Pear: Flood Photoshop Plugin

A plugin came to my attention thanks to the ever resourceful Strawberry Singh while reading her blog the other day. It’s called Flood from Flaming Pear. They have a lot of plugin that they offer for a two week trial period. I began to think to myself what could I possible create while finally being able to control the water. First things first; I needed to find a windlight setting that could bring a bit of magic to the photograph that I was about to take. Luckily there is one that I had downloaded a while ago from Strawberry Singh (didn’t I tell you all she is the mother of bloggers, queen of photography!) It’s called Amethyst from the Berry Windlight Settings and gives off a wonderful night glow that is purplish to me at times. You can find more of her amazing windlight settings here!

Once I began to work, I found that I simply couldn’t stop at just one picture as there are so many poses that I have which could work out perfectly with the right water. So here is what I created, hopefully it inspires someone else… I’m really proud of what I created, well still a bit questioning about the third picture.. I might have done better without the sparkles but then again we are our own worst critic….
