Collaborating and Celebrating

After almost a month of insane excitement and intense projects, I finally had the time to get together with some of my beloved friends and practice what we love most: photography; usually with a lot of banter and memory making included. I am happy to present my first collaboration of March, featuring the incredibly lovely Cyanna Starsmith. This first collaboration is actually primarily focused around the biggest collaboration of the entirety of Second Life, Collabor88. Continue reading

Downtown

“When you’re alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go downtown
When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know, downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares”
– Petula Clark, Downtown

Believe it or not, but I have a lowkey obsession with the 1950’s and 1960’s. Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy have been my style icons for the longest of times, though I am sure you would not be able to tell from this specific photo. Continue reading

Anything bare that is made of gold

“I might as well be in a garden
I said, ah
A smell in the air is a dripping rose
(You could be the one for me)
Another soul to meet my void then
Of anything bare that’s made of gold

A physical kiss is nothing without it
And you close your eyes to see what it’s done
The body that lies is built up on looking
Cause all that remains before it’s begun”
– Chet Faker, Gold

The Sn@tch Book

The Sn@tch Book
Click to enlarge

The Lookbook is one of my new Flickr albums in which I will display a collection of outfits compiled to show off a certain style, item, brand or event. Lookbooks tend to inspire me, both in real life and on Second Life. One lookbook that recently sparked such inspiration in me was the Inspiration lookbook, which I find a very suiting name, by the wonderful Tarani Tempest. She displayed a set of outfits which all looked very unique yet in some way, they matched perfectly.

The inspiration for my lookbook today comes from one of my favorite stores on the grid, Sn@tch. Sn@tch was founded in 2007 by Ivey Deshanel and has been around ever since. The store offers a variety of products ranging from appliers to various mesh items. Ivey uses Omega appliers which does not only make it easy to use but that also makes all of her appliers useable for many mesh bodies.The system layers are also included for those who still use their system body.

If you are not familiar with the Omega system or would like to know if your mesh body is also omega competible, I recommend you take a look at their blog which contains a lot of information and also lists all of the supported meshes.

Summer is almost here but unfortunately the relaxing warm summer breezes and chill won’t come without a cost. Good luck to all of my fellow students who are still going through their final exams and deadlines! I’ll be quite busy myself for the upcoming four weeks (yes, there are only four weeks until the final deadline of this year!) and if I’ll survive, which I hopefully will, I will be able to dedicate much more time to blogging, vlogging and all of those fantastic phenomenons during the summer!

I will be showing a few more items from The Secret Affair that were just a bit too sultry to be showed on YouTube. TSA always has such wonderful themes, their theme for May is “Light of the Earth”. It’s hard to describe what that exactly means but I recommend you visit the event to find out!

Little Lost Witch

The third Annual Castle, Home & Garden Contest by Relay for Life has just opened. It’s a wonderful event that features great builds from various creative residents and furthermore also helps to raise money for the American Cancer Society. If you’d like to know more about the event, I recommend you take a look at their website and visit the event yourself. I will also leave a link to the RFL website if you would like to know more about the organazation and their other upcoming events.

There are 10 sims in total this year. Each one has a completely unique theme which all of my fellow fantasy lovers will swoon over. Whilst walking from sim to sim, you will travel from Disneyland to The Shire and then you can suddenly find yourself in Narnia! It’s an experience you truly can’t miss.

Before diving into this marvelous adventure, I recommend you take a look at these following pages:

  • Themes
    On this page you can find a list of the different themes. There is also a small summary of each theme.
  • Layout
    This is a map of all of the different sims. You will also be able to see which merchants are located on which sim.

And if you get lost, take a look at:

  • What is it?
    If you find yourself lost or confused, perhaps this page can lighten things up for you.

As I mentioned above, there are several magical themes. These range from Disneyland to Narnia, to J.K. Rowling. Both Park Place and The Pumpkin Head have created Harry Potter themed items for the event. You can find both of these merchants on the Godric’s Hallow sim which, according to the website, is “an English village with some notable residents in the magical community. Including, at one time, a young Harry Potter”.

[Scene] - Little Lost Witch

According to this Buzzfeed test I belong to the Hufflepuff household, so I picked up this wonderful dress from The Little Bat to fully embrace my inner Hufflepuff! Unfortunately I, as a new student at Hogwarts, got lost and ended up in the Gryffindor tower! I have to admit that it was rather stunning there but I could not stay for very long. After capturing the moment to cherish as a sweet memory, I ran out to find the Hufflepuff basement ASAP!
