♥ @ Jane

Janie Marlowe is back after a two year hiatus and one could almost hear the collective cheers across the grid when the announcement went out this week. Janie has been working with the coldLogic team but has released a few designs of her own at her new location. Jane was my first “favorite” store—I couldn’t be more delighted to see her return to designing under her own name. Her latest designs are tailored to the Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies and can be used with the default avatar as well. If you are an admirer of Janie’s you will not be disappointed, and if you are new to her designs, well, prepare to fall in love.

Boarder

I won the California skateboard from What Next on my first play at the Arcade this round. I don’t have very good luck with rares, but I’ve been wanting to so something with this for awhile.

My shoes are from Energie at Fashion for Life. Really well-made sneakers have always been hard to find for me with my level of sneaker pickiness. But these are wonderfully made with great detail. Any girl skater would be happy to be sporting these at the skate park, as well as the detailed Ribbon Arm Tattoo from Body Canvas. These tattoos are applied to a mesh arm that becomes transparent when you apply the tattoo, allowing the pattern to be much more clear and detailed than with regular layer tattoos.

Finally, for all my skater needs, the ANE Holster bag helps me keep my hands free.

Sub-Zero

I, along with half the country, am in the middle of a pretty intense cold snap that is quite uncomfortable if you don’t have the proper cold-weather gear. Today I am wearing the red-cheeked Kaelyn-a cold day skin from Glam Affair that is on offer for Fifty Linden Fridays this week. My warm coat from Rebel Hope is keeping me warm enough, but clearly it is time to think about getting inside!

Twisted Color Challenge: Catch-up

It has been a crazy few weeks and I have fallen behind on my color challenge photos, so this morning  I had an extravaganza and got myself caught up.

Hélène

Neva River has been one of the most popular places for bloggers to take pictures lately, and it is a truly lovely sim. It is open to the public for a short time so go have a look while you still can, today is the last day it will be open for public access. This area reminded me of one of the final scenes of Queen To Play, a beautiful film about growth, intimacy and breaking boundaries…all revolving around the game of chess. Yes, chess. Sandrine Bonnaire plays the hardworking maid Hélène on the breathtaking island of Corsica. No plot spoilers here, but see it if you can. It’s marvelous. Hélène will win you over in her ever-present red sweater, sensibly pulled-back hair and her makeup-less face.
