I’m Back!

Hello Readers!

I have missed you!  It has been a whole SIX DAYS since I blogged last!  I know for some bloggers that isn’t much, but I rather enjoyed blogging every few days…blogging is one of my creative outlets.  And lets not forget to mention all the blogger goodies from my sponsors that I am itching to share with you!

I was insanely busy with the Style Kingdom Magazine final casting and writing scripts for the AVENUE Autumn/Winter Fashion Week 2013.  I hope you all are taking in the amazing shows of AVENUE Fashion Week…and hitting that retail gallery.  It has stunning styles for residents of all kinds.

On to the final results of the Style Kingdom Magazine casting.  I am happy to say that I made a strong showing overall, but in the end it wasn’t enough to place in the top three.  Needless to say I was disappointed, but such is SL modeling.  You can’t win them all, and there will be disappointments along the way, but there will also be triumphs. I am thrilled to have the experience and enjoyed meeting the judges.  There will be another casting later in the year, and I’ve decided I will have another go.

The final challenge was Futuristic Avant Garde and this one really challenged me.  I had three different looks put together, but I will only show you the last two, the first one was way too crazy for me to post a photo of. *laughs*

I ended up vetoing this one because it didn’t seem Avant Garde enough.

After Googling images of Futuristic Avant Garde fashion I felt my styling mimicked what I saw. In the end the other contestants had a bit more going on than I did and made me recognize that I may play it safe more than I would like.  I need to push the envelope a bit and not go completely off the deep end.

Legal Insanity

I was thrilled to be accepted as a blogger for Legal Insanity.  They will always have a special place in my SL because they were a huge part of a highlight of my SL experience, my AVENUE Models Academy graduation! 😀  So here goes my first blogging of a couple of their new releases, the Ascot Flat Cap and the Shelley Opened Sweater.

I really enjoyed the sense of movement the sweater has.

Love the cascading fabric effect on the sweater and the cap has a hud where you have a few funky and fun texture options.

Celebrations!

I am thrilled that two designers have accepted me as a blogger for them as I set out on this new adventure!  Thank you Marshmallows and {MUA}! To honor them I did a lil shopping and put together a look featuring them both.

I am a fan of funky and this shirt really jumped out at me for it’s bright colors.  I also tend to collect things with skulls/skeletons on them because of my personal fashion statement “Barrio Chic.”  For me the skulls and skeletons represent Dia de Los Muertos, and I enjoy bringing in a bit of that sabor (flavor) to my stylings whenever I can.

The meshwork of the jeans and the tee is done nicely.  They compliment each other very well and there were no colliding mesh bits.  Don’t you hate when that happens? I know I do!  I love that the pants stopped high enough as to give my sneakers room to be seen.

MakeUp: {MUA} – MakeUp Set – Guess – Full Set

The vibrancy of the make up went right along with the fun and funky flavor I was striving for with the clothes from Marshmallows. The make up comes in lip only, eye only and full.  I always appreciate those considerations so that mixing and matching is possible.

Berry’s Intriguing Question Meme

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers into your post. Delete my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to leave a comment in this post!

  1. How do you deal with criticism? I deal with it well for the most part.  There is always a small part of me that will be hurt by it, but the larger part of me gets the big picture.  I am not perfect, nor do I claim to be and I welcome constructive feedback on my work in RL and SL.  A lot of unsolicited criticism would not be good, but some here and there from people I know and trust is not hard for me to take at all.
  2. What’s the most infuriating thing other SL residents do? Insult others.  I agree with Berry’s thoughts here.  It is wise to keep in mind that behind every avatar is a person with real feelings.
  3. Which SL resident would you most like to have lunch with and why? Oh goodness, I could think of a few, but I won’t name names.
  4. Who would you say is your “anti” role model? Someone who serves as a warning rather than an inspiration? There is one in particular, but that person deserves no attention or comment.
  5. What was something you used to enjoy, but was ruined for you? Can’t think of anything really.  I tend to be interested in many things and go from one thing to the next.  Maybe I move too fast for anyone to ruin things for me. 😉
  6. What’s something you want to do that you’d be embarrassed to tell other people about? *laughs* No comment 😉
  7. What’s the oddest term of endearment you’ve ever used or that someone’s used for you? “Beast” And no I am not sharing the story behind that. 😉
  8. Have you ever fallen in love with another SL resident? No Comment 🙂
  9. Describe a time/event in your slife that you’re nostalgic for. I find I always long for the times when my roleplay stories were the richest.  I recognize every story has to come to and end, but I still find myself thinking about the highlights of those stories.
  10. What’s something sweet you’d like someone to do for you? I don’t really want anyone to do anything for me besides enjoying my company.
