Mi Vida Chola

mi vida chola

¡Hola Lectores!

Seriously…my name isn’t Silly for nothin’! Anyway, I was at Truth looking at new hairs like I do and fell in love with this one called Rumi, tho I think it should be called Chola. I have seen a lot of cholos and cholas in my lifetime and for the non-Spanish speaking, a chola is a female gangster or thug or even the girlfriend of a cholo (gangster or thug). Now you have had your Spanish lesson for the day! So this hair made me think of a chola therefore I had to style like one. I love the attitude of Legal Insanity so of course it was a perfect match for my chola feeling. I am wearing the Bettie Corset (melon version). It comes in sizes for several mesh bodies (Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) as well as a fitted version in addition to the standard sizes. I have to say I love seeing more and more designers, provide sizes specifically aimed at mesh bodies. Mesh bodies are taking over the grid! And mi barrio is courtesy of KaTink, Cracked Den 17.

Que le vaya bien,

Introspection

Hello Readers,

Just a quick post to share this lovely outfit from Artizana and my thoughts. As you may know I am a Miss in Miss Virtual World. This coming Sunday is the final challenge and a winner will be named. I will be cliche and say we are all winners, because it is true, but you will see in a future post why this competition/contest/pageant has meant to much to me and caused so much introspection. Consider this post a teaser.

When I put on the newest creation from Daine Fraina of Artizana, an image came to mind that I just had to shoot. I had recently acquired the latest windswept hair from Argrace and had always wanted to toy with the “closed eyes” from Boudoir. I am generally not a fan of an open mouth or parted lips on my avatar, but it seemed very fitting for what I had in mind. The Elysion sim is lovely and I knew I would find just the cliff to stand on, to capture the quiet moment I had envisioned in my mind.

I am a role player at heart. I learned how in SL (among many other things…don’t get me started on how amazing I think SL is) and still role play to this day (on other avatars).  So I imagine Prisilla was taking a moment for herself, stealing a moment of solitude to reflect on the blessings in her life and the fact that something she had worked so hard to achieve was about to reach its conclusion.

Stand 4 Love

Hello Readers!

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.

dance with me

Hello Readers!

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!

New Folklore

Hello Readers!

Coming back from a vacation and trying to get back into the swing of things can certainly be a challenge. Here is a look I did for Ferosh’s casting before I went on vacation.  The theme was “New Folklore” which I took to be an edgy and ethnic take on boho.  I was quite pleased with my work.  I didn’t make it to the next round, but se la vie.  I am strong enough to know that being eliminated from a casting doesn’t make me any less of a person, I just happen to not be what is being sought and that is completely alright.  I am never bitter or discouraged, my Second Life marches on! As Sea would say “You can only be your very best.”  So long as I am doing that I am happy no matter the outcome.
