Event Horizon

There are some great events going on now or coming up soon and some great items to be found. This round of Collabor88 has been one of my favorites…mostly due to my fabulous shirt from The Sea Hole and the fantastic Amargosa boots from Schadenfreude.

Feeling High

As I look out the window of Cory Edo’s new NYC skybox I feel like I am in the world’s tallest building—looking down to where so many people live but feeling secluded and comfortable. This photo is completely raw with no editing except cropping, so you can see what a gorgeous piece of work it is.

H is for Hiatus

There has been a considerable slow-down on my blog of late, and it’s probably time to address it. After considerable thought I have decided to take a break from blogging. Luna Jubilee’s  new color challenge starts up in January, and I am looking forward to that. However, due to both RL and SL reasons I need some time away. That is not to say that I will not blog at all, but it will not be as frequent. I can still be reached at elizaquixote@gmail.com, or feel free to say hello in-world.

So with that being said, here is H. A great letter for many things: H is for great words like home, heaven, hideaway, helpfulness, and holiday. For honey, hummingbird and honesty. For heartbreak. I could go on, but H is not the shortest section in the dictionary, so I will let it go at that.

À tout à l’heure, friends.

Finals

One week left until final exams and then a long week of grading awaits me. So this week I am getting caught up on all my paperwork and making sure my finals are written and ready to go. My students are in full-on panic mode, particularly the 9th graders, but this afternoon I was grateful for a little peace and quiet while I caught up with some more administrative tasks!

When I look for stylish teacher-wear (hm, and come to think of it, stylish non-teacher wear), I can always count on Kathryn Armidi. I wish this jacket existed in RL, so I could wear it to school!

I am also loving this new skin from Lilo Glom with its smooth texture and the hint of freckles.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Periwinkle

Periwinkle is one of those soft young colors that abounds in springtime. Since spring is the season of renewal, it seemed a good time to try some new offerings from the fashion world. I am wearing the new Alicia skin from Apple Spice. It is a very pale skin so I am wearing it with a tan layer tattoo, but it is gorgeous in its full anti-UV-ray version as well! I love how this skin manages to be smooth and youthful but still have some subtle definition. My top is from Ivey Deschanel at Sn@tch. As always, when I have color challenge issues, Ivey usually has just what I need. To set off the periwinkle I am wearing a new necklace from Lisanna Lauria.

One thing I notice is that designers lately are spreading their love all around—for example, Apple Spice has not only skins but also poses and clothing. Same goes for many others—Lisanna seems to always have something new in the works. I think I am liking this trend!  And happily, spring still has a way to go before it’s over so I look forward to a lot more newness!
