What a difference a day makes. I’m not one who gets too tied into a specific day because I’ve had health issues that were indiscriminatory as the good or not so good days happened every day, special days, regular day, it didn’t matter. It means I grew up learning to be flexible and also to make the best of the good moments so that when another dark valley swooped in for a few weeks or days or months, I’d have something warm and wonderful stored up in memory, close to my heart; I used those positive memories to support me. … Read more at the source.
I’m not sure what W&W stands for but it made me think of a sequence of events in the Breaking Bad series where one of the characters asks the lead character if he knows what the initials W.W. stand for there, and the guy says, “Walt Whitman maybe?” Knowing full well the whole time he’s answering that it stands for someone else much closer to home.
I didn’t know what W&W stood for either but I loved the quality of the outfit created for the Month of Games. Vanilla Latte offers you a complete outfit from head to toe and … Read more at the source.
I find that the closer I feel to a designer, the more I love what they do in SL. Builders. Scripters. Clothing creators. Any content. I get to know a little about their world and I want them to be happy, to feel successful, and I feel blessed to be a little part of their world. That’s so true when it comes to Loredana Alexandra’s world, and her business in Second Life Lyrical B!zarre Templates.
This gown, Position, expresses the inner beauty of this lovely lady. I love the way the brilliant scarlet color works as black fuses shadow to … Read more at the source.
After doing a Ms. Peacock gown yesterday, I thought it would be really interesting to put another one on today, also part of the themed event The Month of Games, from the same game, Clue – yet interpreted so differently.
Rapture went all out with sweeping beautiful peacock feathers, bold colors and a dramatic style overall. The feathers spun together for a headpiece only added to the boldness of this style. I love seeing how different artists interpret the same idea.
There are three board games represented in this Month of Games themed event. You can find Candyland, Clue and … Read more at the source.
I can remember the first time I played clue. It was with cousins and one of the cousins was a few years older than I and then her younger brother was my age. She had the game, and considered her wisdom at 14 to be worldly and elevated to heights we could not have possibly attained yet at 10 or 11. Then our mothers did that motherly thing and made us ‘play nicely’ together. That was good news for two of us, but the elder cousin was so miffed. I can recall her explaining with that huff that’s only perfected … Read more at the source.
Designer Showcase means awesome deals for designers you might know and love or maybe you’ll find a new designer and fall in love. Either way, it’s a beautiful location, and new.
Artizana offered something really different this time, the Belili, but I’m coming to a place where I really like the perspective of Artizana, so when I ‘added’ my flower from them, and was posed while holding the flower, it immediately evoked emotion. I think that’s interesting, unexpected and beautiful. I thought about loved ones I know and have lost, and for friends and family who’ve lost special people, dear … Read more at the source.
The fantasy world shown vividly through board games come to life in a variety of ways makes for creative designs at The Month of Games event. Siren Productions continues to bring inspiration to the fashion industry with themed events like this one. Candyland, Clue and Chess all remind me of special memories. I needed that. Maybe we all do sometimes.
This sweet gown, the Poute Frostine gown, comes from Haute Couture Design and can be found at The Month of Games til July 31. At The Instruments this month, Wicca’s Wardrobe offers collar and cuffs that match. They have a … Read more at the source.
In the last six months I’ve learned more about the stress and joys that women of color face in their day to day lives. Not the ones they lead on SL because there are so many other things you can be on SL that it’s rare to find any single person who’s attempted to copy their ‘self’ into this virtual world down to the finest detail, no matter how hard they tried. Many, like me, enjoy the diversity of options and have explored everything. Because I’ve worked with October Bettencourt, fabulously sensational photographer, incredible plan and organizer (and if you … Read more at the source.
This week has been a challenge for me. In order to put myself out there, from the beginning of my blog until now, I’ve had to do a lot of learning, growing, trusting that with each new trick or tip I receive and each new client I got to work with, I would naturally and in time grow better at my craft. Sometimes I have so much to share, I have compromised zealous artistry in exchange for beautiful, perhaps simpler pictures so I could do more in a day. It was a conscious choice and in other situations I might … Read more at the source.
I love it when something takes me back to good childhood memories. One of those things is the scent of cotton candy. I’m still a candy-a-holic to this day. I probably consume enough candy that it should be considered one of Caryn’s 4 food groups. When I learned that The Month of Games, sponsored by Siren Productions, would feature three games and one of them was Candyland, I knew I was in for a delicious calorie-less treat. You can’t gain weight if you nibble at candy in Second Life. Promise!
