The FAD Event continues with Tropical Nights and this round speaks to the color lover in me! Today I have on the Ghee Lime Neon Pemplum Mini. It is HUD controlled so you can pick the color of the waist ruffle and belt. Ghee also provided matching nail polish and shoes…
The polish is called Neon Mani/Pedi and is only for Slink, which was fine as I am wearing my Lara (when am I NOT these days??) and just popped on my Slink hands and feet to show off this brightly colored polish set that works so nicely with the entire ensemble. The shoes are called Ghee neon Bow Peeps for Slink High feet and are also HUD controlled so they can match perfectly with any of the Ghee Neon dresses.
Completing my FAD Tropical Nights look is a new necklace from Legal Insanity called the Layered Chain necklace, the Tootsie hair from Analog Dog, Madrid Solo‘s Bubble Gloss in Orange Red and Feline Instinct 3 from La Boheme. The pose is another from the latest pose set from KaTink called Portia.

I was sorting through my inventory in my never ending quest to clean/organize/lighten it, when I came across a head scarf made by my SL mom, Discovering Destiny (aka Lark) from On A Lark. I really don’t wear head scarves enough, and I see why, finding a hair to go under them can be a real challenge. I am wearing the April Headscarf in Eggplant with a bangs attachment (JOPE57) and hairbase from Boon. I have my Lara body on and was excited to use one of my older tattoos from Letis Tattoo called Bohemian with the Omega System Kit trick to get it to apply to Lara. Once again I was pleased with the results. I love the new lipsticks from Deessess that go with my Alicia skin and I am wearing the L’adoree shade for light skins. La Boheme just seemed so fitting with this look so I am wearing Glamour Eyes: Cassiopeia Set 1 #5. Then their was the Banjara silver talisman necklace from Zaara which really helped make the look. It was fun to dress up the simple Madison romper from The Secret Store, it was a lovely canvas to begin with. The Elysion sim was ever the perfect backdrop, and my pose is one from the new set called Andrea by KaTink, now available at Sneak Peek.
Thank you for reading,

I love it when an outfit falls together. I am wearing the Giselle Wrapped Dress in Leopard from Legal Insanity. Being on my Lara kick, I of course tried it on over my mesh body and loved how the standard sizes worked with it.
Then there are the -wild- “Animal Attraction” eyebrows from Madrid Solo that were PERFECT. They are a June Group Gift that might still be available in the store if you hurry! I managed to finally make it to the Hair Fair and fell in love with this hair/hat combination from Tableau Vivant called “Scarlett.” I have been loving the eye shadows from La Boheme and the one I am wearing is aptly called “Feline Instinct.” I have my updated Alicia skin on from Deesses and one of the new lipsticks that go with it called “Foudroyante.” The necklace is from one of my new favorites Random Matter and is called “Cambria.”
Lastly I have the Ramonda Heels by Glamistry that have been updated for this round of the Kustom9. The HUD has a few animal prints to choose from and this one was purrfect! Corny I know, but I am in -that- kind of mood, besides, my name is Silly isn’t it? 😉
Thank you so much for stopping by!

My winter break is just about up, and I am not too excited about that. Then along comes Berry with a fun new challenge! I have really been enjoying the images in the Flickr group and was inspired to do my own, especially when Berry mentioned PicMonkey…O – M – G! That site has given me what I have been looking for for a long time and I know I have heard about it before but never bothered to go look…a TOTAL fail on my part! Here is my addition to all the fun SL Yearbook photos:

I achieved this fun photo with the use of PhotoShop and PicMonkey. I used the AnyPose HUD and blended two expressions to get my smile.
Thanks Berry for bringing back your Memes. This one was a fun way to start the new year!

I have had the Slink Physique mesh body for a little while, but didn’t feel I could do much with it as there isn’t a whole available for it at the moment, though that is rapidly changing. Being a model in SL I adhere to the industry standard of glamazon proportions, which I understand and embrace. It is rather amusing to me when I go out shopping with friends how I tower over them. However, I did find myself wanting to be more “normal” when I am out and about on the grid. I felt that Slink’s Physique would help me capture that and still look like “me” thanks to Natalie Wells of Deesses coming out with Physique appliers recently.
I have not adjusted my shape in a long time apart from minor fine tuning here and there, so to throw all the modeling standards to the wind and just make a shape for myself that I found realistic and appealing was rather enjoyable. I personally find much beauty in a thicker frame, so apart from shortening overall height, torso and limbs, I also put a lil meat on her bones! I loved the final result and I think the Physique makes curves look lovely! I look forward to blogging more with my Physique…I hear Artizana is coming out with some hot new Physique outfits and I can’t wait!

I am sure many (if not all) of you have heard about the Stand4Love campaign. As an educator I teach my students about many things…including civil rights movements. I firmly believe marriage equality is this generation’s civil rights movement. I support equal rights for all people. Being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered does not make you any less of a person with any less rights than a straight person.

Getting back into the swing of RL and SL after two nearly back to back summer trips has been quite the challenge. After going on an unpacking spree in my overfull objects folder I am ready to style and shoot! Before my trips I was thrilled to be taken on as a blogger for my longtime designer friend Lore, the creative mind behind !Lyrical B!zarre! When I slipped into her seductively flowy “Diamonds V” outfit and ethereal “Unchained Hat” for Art in Hats, I had to pause as it reminded me of my days as a dancer in SL. I loved to dance, and the perfect outfit would add to the joy of dance. Lore’s creations reminded me of that and I just had to stop and blog it! Thank you Lore!
