SubLIME


I learned some new skills doing this pic for the Blogger Colour Challenge. Been a while since I did one, for one reason or another, but I had fun and frustration doing this one.

Took me ages to find a venue, and then I remembered another blog post I had done here and 'voila'!

Then, I had to get the angles and position just right so I was in the eerie, green glow, cos I wanted the light for the pic. Lag was a killer and I crashed twice! Grr face.

After a wee bit playing in Picasa with cropping, I got this. I am pleased I didn't have to edit it any other way. The light played nicely for me!

Do My Little Turn on the Catwalk

I'm a model you know what I mean
And I do my little turn on the catwalk
Yeah on the catwalk on the catwalk yeah
I do my little turn on the catwalk

I found this awesome catwalk and poses at Olive Juice for Project Themeory. The Tent comes with all you see and has inbuilt poses, and then I also bought the separate pose pack. They were only 75L each!

I went to a Fashion Show today so I wanted to strut my stuff too. Ok, I am nowhere near as glam and gorgeous as the models from the show I went to, but I had fun and
I'm too sexy for your party, too sexy for your party, no way I'm disco dancing

Some friends of mine said she they are going to wear their tiaras and sceptres out shopping in SL. I like their thinking. I am not naming names, but you know who you are Mon, AA and Chaos!

Snow Again!?

Living in New York I expect snow and harsh winters, but this is getting crazy. Just after we had a few days of 50 F weather and sunny days, we suddenly get 8 inches of snow! Will spring ever arrive? You know how they say if you don't get enough sun it starts to make you sad? I think I'm starting to feel that effect. In fact, I've been watching Youtube videos of people doing crawfish boils and wishing it was nice enough outside to participate. While it was becoming a winter wonderland outside, I found some great items in-world.

Your Help is Required

On Tuesday 22nd February an earthquake of 6.3 hit Christchurch in New Zealand, only 5 months after they had survived an earthquake of 7.1. In September there were no fatalities. The earthquake was deep, struck at 4am and its effect was mainly damage to buildings, houses and land.

The earthquake on Tuesday was shallow and devastating and struck at lunchtime. The death toll is currently 113 with 228 people still missing.

New Zealand is a small country. Everyone in New Zealand knows someone affected by this disaster. It has stunned, saddened and shocked us all.

I am ok and I want to thank everyone who IMed me, worried about why I wasn't on SL. I was actually at a funeral, far away from Christchurch, but I was touched by the concern of my SL friends. You all rock.

I was glad to find out today that some amazing people have already organised a fundraising event with 100% of the proceeds going straight to earthquake relief.

So....
How can you help? Well, if you are a designer, store owner or creator then you could donate an item or items to the event. Go to the Garden City Relief website, for more information

If you are a shopper (like me) then you can go and buy some of the awesome items that have already been donated here.

If you don't want to do either, but you just want to donate money then you can go straight to the Red Cross website.

Dress: [AddiCt] - In Bloom (150L)
Necklace: Puarangi Designs - Jade Necklace (50L)

Bruised and Weeping

Not much to say today, but wanted to show you the new skin LaVie has out for 1L. LaVie has released a new line of skin called Savon and lucky members who are in the group can get a "demo" version. I call it "demo" because it's not really demo, but the skin is bruised, unlike the other Savon skins for sale. Okay, here's my quick picture post before The Office comes on!




Skin: LaVie - Savon Wearable Demo Dark (1L for Group Members)

Fine Line of Separation

Everyone views SL differently. Some say that SL and RL are separate, while others believe they intertwine. For me, my personality in SL is the same as in RL and I care about the friends I've made in-world. How could I not? These are people I talk to on a daily basis and it's crazy to think that one day they could just disappear from my virtual world, not knowing where they went or how they're doing.
I didn't hear from a friend for awhile and I started to get worried, I'm thankful to know she's fine right now. So when I heard there was a big earthquake in New Zealand, where Arya is from, I worried again. She's fine, but it really made me think: what if people you talked to everyday in SL just disappeared? Wouldn't you wonder about them too and be affected?

ATTENTION!

It's been awhile, eh? I heard the crack of the whip Arya mentioned in her post and it scared me too! How have you all been? I'm hoping well. Right now I'm on a winter-break "vacation", but I still have lots of work to do at home. However, it sure beats waking up at 5:30 a.m. every morning! Today is Monday and that means Monday Mania deals! Head on over to SF Design and get this amazing military jacket w/ cap.

She Made Me!

There I was wandering about SL happily with not a care in the world, whistling a cheery tune, when out of the blue I was threatened with physical violence if I did not go and start my blogging. And I quote:

"****** ******** cracks whip. That's right! BLOG!"

Due to legal proceedings I cannot name the one who threatened me, but she knows who she is and so do the witnesses who will be subpoenaed to testify against the obviously guilty ...

Consequently, I feared for my life and so I abandoned my joyous wanderings with the butterflies and pixies to bring you today's blog post. I was too scared to tell her that I am going to be away from SL for the next three days...

Oh, btw, you MUST go over to Loveli's Art Gallery and do the Arty Farty Hunt! You are looking for a pink sign with a paintbrush on it. There are 14 hunt items and they are so cool. I have shown just a tiny sampling in this post.
