Today I took my photo at the beautiful Matoluta Sanctuary. Kavar Cleanslate’s Blown Away hairstyle from Hair Fair billows appropriately as I gaze at the view from my mountain perch.

Elegance

Today I am wearing probably my favorite Fashion for Life design this year. The elegant Vivienne dress combines muted colors with flawless ruffles. Only the most gorgeous of jewelry can accompany this gown, and the classy Julia set from Donna Flora fits the bill. These lovely items can both be found at Fashion for Life on the Wander sim.

London Time

Kavar Cleanslate’s creation for this round of the Arcade includes two casual updos called London and L.A. While there are many things about California I love, L.A. is not one of them. So today I visited the London City sim and took my pictures there.

Also from the Arcade is my sweet handbag from Zenith, set off by the bright Pink Halter from Pink & Wild at Fameshed.

Seascape

Whenever I want to take a picture of beach or ocean I always seem to find myself going back to Baja Norte. There are so many different views for photography there—it was perfect for a slow stroll along the water today. If I were to stroll along the water in RL, I would need to wear a hat and scarf and several layers, so this kind of strolling lays firmly in the future for now. My breezy top from Zenith is available at this month’s Fameshed, and the newly-released Odea pants from coldLogic are rolled just high enough for wading.

New Year Meme

This meme from Strawberry Singh sounded like a good reflective-type activity for today, so here goes. Thanks, as always, to Bastion for showing up photo-ready to help me out today, although I am a bit miffed that he has a better hat than I do.

010614a

  1. How did you spend New Year’s Eve? At home, with my husband. We watched the New Year’s Eve broadcast from Spain, which always gives us new song and film ideas for teaching our Spanish classes.
  2. Did you keep any new years’ resolutions? No. I feel like I am constantly resolved on doing things and being a certain way whether it’s the new year or not.
  3. What was your biggest achievement(s) of the year? In real life, I built and implemented two iPhone games for my Spanish classes. I also presented the games at the national convention for the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. I know, achievement city right here. In SL, I moved my blog to this new domain. It was a big step, but I am glad I did it.
  4. What was the best thing you bought? In real life, my Alienware computer. I get lots of sidelong looks and questions about being a gamer, but I really love having a powerful computer. I have been creating a lot more visual content for my work and my new machine has really made a difference. And for SL it’s a dream. I also upgraded to Dropbox Pro. It literally changed my life. In SL? Probably my Maya tutorials from Leviathan Flux. I haven’t made anything yet, but I am learning so much!
  5. What do you wish you’d done more of? In real life, I wish I had been able to see more of my family. I am going to make that happen more this year—gasoline prices be darned.
    In SL, I wish I had talked to more people and gone more places. I enjoy the social aspect of SL but tend to hang out on my own rather than intrude in social spheres.
  6. What do you wish you’d done less of? In real life, not much. I worked a lot and played a lot and plan to do more of the same this year. I do wish I cared less about unimportant things. In SL, I wish I had not let my investments become unbalanced. I am working on that.
  7. What was your favorite movie you watched this year? There were two that I previewed for my Spanish Language and Culture class. One is called El Sueño de Iván and the other is called A Better Life. The first is delightful and sweet and the second is heartbreakingly sad. Incidentally, they both star the wonderful Damián Bichir.
  8. What did you do on your birthday this year? In real life, I sang the Verdi Requiem with the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood. It’s probably one of the more wonderful things I’ve done in life, period. In SL, I don’t remember.
  9. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned. You can climb every mountain, you can ford every stream. You can follow all the rainbows, but it’s no guarantee that you’ll find your dream. I try to forget that from time to time, though.
  10. What does 2014 hold for you? In RL I don’t know but I will be satisfied with health and employment. In SL I hope to learn to do basic modeling and improve my photography.

    Oh you got me intrigued by the Maya classes, I might have to look them up. Not that I am looking to getting into designing, but it may be fun to learn something completely new like that.

    Sounds like you had a pretty eventful and wonderful 2013, hope you get the same and even more in 2014. Thanks for participating. <3

Vintage Fair Take 2

In all honesty this is a much a Collabor88 post as a Vintage Fair post, but both are worthy events!

My shorts, boots and glasses and handbag are all from Vintage Fair, and I particularly love the boots, which are from a new-to-me designer. So much to love!

My adorable owl necklace and warm blazer are part of this round of Collabor88. It must be said, two great events that make for some great fashion!
