Catwalk

Oh shoot, It’s Sunday and it’s almost over! Dammit!

Well, nothing I can do about it but deliver your daily fashion mail:

N-uno has a new release for We Love Role-Play event. It’s a bodysuit that comes in 8 colors for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza (apart from Venus) mesh bodies. You will also find a skirt to compliment the look (check second picture below to see the difference).

Shoes are new release from Garbaggio for On9 round and, as always, beautiful. The bracelets and claw ring are from Tabou (second picture) from We Love Role Play as well, where you can also grab the new mesh eyes from Pumec, that include a hud for the Catwa mesh eyes.

Last but not least, the skin I’m wearing is new release from Pumec for the Coven event. I’ve only recently joined the Pumec team as a blogger but I have always been a fan of her creations for the obvious reasons.

Rainy Days

I don’t know if it’s due to my being from the UK where we have lots of rain but I truly am a lover of the rain, I love watching it, listening to it, even being out in it if dressed right, I also love Thunderstorms when your all tucked up inside cosy and warm.  The pose I got recently from Raindale which is the Umbrella pose gave me great delight in dressing in my new favourite warm Autumn outfit by Zenith which is available at this months C88 and taking myself off to Rainy Alley.   I loved it, listening to the rain while taking a picture was really soothing and peaceful.  Does that make me crazy?   Maybe just a little lol.

Have a great day everyone ♥

Daydreaming…

Some days when you’ve been busy it’s nice to just sit and relax, have some coffee, listen to some music and let your mind wander.   Today I have a free day finally so I am doing just that whilst also taking time to catch up on everything like flickr, facebook etc.   I have come to realise recently this is not a race, it’s most definitely not a competition (well at least it’s not for me) lol it’s all about enjoying what you do, not stressing about the small things, and that is exactly what I am doing.   As long as I do my best, I treat others as I wish to be treated and I enjoy life I am a happy girlie.

Today’s outfit totally fitted my relaxed mood, it’s a gorgeous comfortable sweater and Jeans by the awesome #bubbles designer Candi, not only is she one of my sponsors but someone who I class as a friend.  She is always so lovely and encouraging, supportive and appreciative and she always wants to do her best by her customers, that to me is precious in a designer.

The sweater is available as individual colours but also as a fatpack too which comes with a HUD for a choice of 8 colours, the Jeans come in 3 choices of Denims.   She knew I would love this one lol as comfy wear is totally me.

Have a great day everyone ♥

Moan

Yes, clothes are off again! Don’t blame me, blame the super amazing Evolove, that created the Moaning series poses for the new round of Expose event. Now can you imagine yourselves posing in them fully clothed? I’m just surprised I did put something on. I’m also glad my parents don’t read my blog. Ha ha.

I enjoy sexy photography in general. Erotica and artistic nudity always catch my attention. The human body is beautifully made and one could do wonders with it. Which is why I’m always impressed by the diverse and unique poses Evolove brings. The Expose event is now open and will stay open until the 27th of October.

Hair is from Alice Project, a previous FLF release. All arm/hands accessories are from Muka, apart from the rings that were also a FLF release from Plastik. The collar is new release from Tabou, which can be found at the new round of Kinky Event and the sexy corset is from CerberusXing (CX) and can be found at Whore Couture which is about to close doors.

That would be all for now lovely readers. Have a beautiful weekend and be kind to one another.

Boudoir

 Among the new creations released in this round of On9, you will find a beautiful skybox made by the talented Victor Newchurch, available in 2 colors (red and white) and with land impact of 33 prims. Blogging a skybox is definitely quite interesting though. Personally I’ve never worked on skyboxes or houses before, I didn’t even own any land until only recently, so of course, I was challenged.

I had to ask a lot of people for their opinion on how they would blog a skybox, even the creator himself, only to realize there are no rules or preferences here. Just decorate it nicely and take a good picture in it. Being a perfectionist though made it hard for me. I knew I wouldn’t have any problem decorating it but showing the decor plus the whole skybox too, would be tricky. Multiple pictures is what I thought first. You can’t show it all in just one picture. Then I figured, people will be able to see they skybox in the vendor images NEWCHURCH took anyways, so let’s not stress about it too much. Be creative, try to showcase it nicely and have fun with it.

My main inspiration for this project had been the amazing gacha releases from Birdy for the Arcade. The idea was to create a boudoir and the beautiful release of the Secret Store for Collabor88 was the perfect fit for that. Adding to the whole decoration the creations by Glam Affair Home for the Chapter Four event plus Garbaggio decor from the Arcade too, made it all look just consistent and complete.

The skybox follows the industrial theme of this On9 round but that doesn’t mean you can’t be creative differently with it. I’ve mentioned before how decor is not my thing but I have so much fun with it. It’s incredibly time consuming, even the credits alone take a while to make, but when you’re done and look back at what you’ve made, feels amazing.

I think every blogger should step out of their comfort zone every once in a while, experiment, try new, different things and styles, and maybe they’ll be surprised. I know this has helped me grow and become better as a blogger for sure. I hope you all enjoy this. I know I did.

Have a nice evening and a lovely week!

Fashionista

Yes, the blog changed, again! I’m sorry but I have to use my mood swings in a creative way. Jules is probably going crazy with the constant changes but at least she’s being a good sport about it. He he. I love this new look. It’s not completely ready yet, but you can get the general idea. All feeds, blogs we follow, stats and counts will be under new pages, next to sponsors and about-us tabs very soon, but for now you can explore and see what this new layout has to offer. Also let me know what you think about it in the comments.

This post features an outfit from Me Sew Sexy, for the new round of On9. Very interesting one, available for Maitreya mesh body only and shorts, blazer and harness can be worn separately. Skin is a new release from L’etre for Fiore heads. If you haven’t heard by now, L’etre also released new mesh body appliers version 4. Make sure you check them out as well. Hair is new from little bones for Collabor88 September round and it’s animated. That means it comes with a hud that allows you to choose whether you want the hair to be tucked behind left or right ear, or even both, or not at all. Pretty cool. Last but not least, the shades are from ZOOM for Limit8 event. There were 147 available this morning that I checked but if they have sold out by the time you’re reading this, no worries, check out their mainstore and you won’t be disappointed.

That would be all for now, hope you’re all having a great week so far. Big hugs!

Do not live with regret. Everything happens for a reason…

Life is too short to live with regrets and as the quote says “Don’t regret anything because at one point it was exactly what you wanted”  so true.   I am a firm believer in everything happens for a reason, no matter whether its good or bad,  I have had so many occasions in my life where something I have felt was one of the worst moments of my life actually bring something amazing into my life that had the bad not happened neither would the good.

Today I feel reflective, don’t we all have days like that where we think of all the days past, and wonder what the future holds?  No one can predict the future, nor to be honest would I even want too, instead take each day as it comes and hope for the best.

Have a wonderful evening everyone ♥

I Protect You

Poses play a very important role in photography, if not the most important one. Whether it is RL or SL photography, the pose has to be there and it has to be specific. The pose will usually be determined by the outfit you have on and the theme or concept of the picture you have in mind or vice versa. It will definitely inspire you and it will help you figure out what you’re going to do with the picture.

Couple poses have always intrigued me more than single ones. They are definitely harder to work with, so that to me, sounds like a challenge. I can never say no to a challenge, which is why I always end up disappointed in the end. Ha ha. But hey, at least I’m having so much fun, so, you know what they say. It’s the journey that matters, not the destination! So here’s why I think couple/friends poses are usually harder to blog.

First of all, since the designers create the poses in a certain way, using, probably their own avatar size and shape, there is always a chance of the pose not working well for you. In this case, do not panic! You can always edit the pose (by right clicking on it) and unlink it. This way you can adjust the poses individually, move them up or down, back or forth. There are also huds like Animare or Anypose that allow you to move parts of your body, in case your hand ends up in your hair or dress or even worse, inside your picture partner’s back for example. Be careful though! If you’re supposed to blog the pose, you can’t change it. Yes you can remove your fingers from your hair, but you can’t move your hand down for example. The creators needs to recognize their work and people need to know what they’re buying.

Second of all, couple or friends poses, require more than one avatars, obviously. In this case you can either use an alt or, in my case, models. Since for me personally, one account is already too much to handle, I’d rather work with Jules in case I have to make a females pose or male models for couple ones. Besides, how or why would I ever miss the opportunity of a) bugging and upsetting Jules with my OCD and need-to-be-perfect behavior and b) hugging a shirtless guy for like an hour and instead use a, most likely, bad-looking male alt that I would have created? He he.

Jokes aside, working with models, from my experience, has been a great lesson. They have been inspiring, helpful and they have taught me things I didn’t know before. For that reason only, I’m always looking forward to working with them. Besides, it’s always interesting to see, what kind of picture they would take and how they would, probably, do it differently.

Last but not least, styling is a factor. You probably know what you want to wear or what you want to look like in the picture, but, your picture partner, has to match it. For example, if you’re in a gown, all fancy and posh, you probably don’t want your partner to wear jeans. Nothing wrong with jeans, but they will, in my opinion, create a contrast and inconsistency between your style and theirs. So it is challenging, for the models mostly, to find something to wear that would meet your requirements for the picture. In this case, I’d say, gift them what you want them to wear. They’re helping you out so, least you can do is buy them a pair of pants…! Who knows, maybe you’re going to need them again in the future and your particular gift would come in handy then as well.

So, in this post today, I had the pleasure to work with Kael (I could hug him, shirtless or not, for hours and days, he’s adorable) and also with a very beautiful pose created by Drunk Panda. You can find this one and many many others, in this month’s round of Pose Lover & Friends Event.

Have a nice day everyone!
