Retreat

One of my favorite colleagues ever had a saying she used with students when they got a little out of control in her class. I have used it often, myself, and actually taken her advice on many occasions:

“Sometimes, it’s just time to retreat to the privacy of your own mind.”

In our media-saturated world it can be hard to do that, but it is important that we be able to be alone with ourselves sometimes.

On the other hand, too much inward focus may be a bad idea when wearing these super-sexy heels from L’enfant Terrible.

Hammered

Yesterday involved me using half my day to design a flier for a transhumanism and cybernetics in Peninsular literature conference beneath the eyes of a very anxious husband. For once all my fiddling around in SL was of some RL use!

Afterward I couldn’t help doing a similar shot minus the Terminator eye and mechanical body parts. I am having such fun with materials and the new St. Tropez Hammered Disks from Maxi Gossamer catch the sun or any other projected light beautifully. One thing to note is that materials don’t seem to be supported in Firestorm yet, so to catch all the materials goodness be sure to use the LL viewer. Maxi put a video on her blog so check it out to see more!

The Long March

How did all these events get scheduled all together in March? It has been a deadly month L-wise this month, but it’s been nice to see the waves of creativity coming from our great SL creators. One favorite item of mine this week is the Essences Aries skin at this round of Zodiac. Inka is well on her way to becoming one of my favorite skin designers.

Ikon Innovia released a few colors of his new Ardent line at the Liaison Collaborative Boutique event launch and he’s clearly been at the grindstone, because if you visit the event now there are several colors added. What a lovely Boutique bonus! (Top to bottom: Brown, Blossom, Black, Platinum, Glass)

Twisted Color Challenge: Hemingway in the Sienna

Contrary to what Sookie might think, I am all for oranges and have enjoyed the opportunity to bust out a little more orange during the last few weeks. And this one was such a nice orange. I’ve been fiddling with my color settings lately and finally got them to a better place, from which I can show Glam Affair’s Roza skin to its best. I really like the lips on this skin, not overly large or pouty, but still generous enough not to look mean. And Ikon Innovia’s new Ardent eyes from the Boutique are the perfect combination of this week’s colors.

Fashion for Life 2012: L&B, Miamai, Gos, WTG

There is so much amazingness at Fashion For Life! I am not sure which is more fun, shopping for the clothes or looking for places on the awesome builds to take the photos. Zeit, built by Grace Loudon, has to be one of my favorite sims, with its retro colors and bright atmosphere…the filling station gacha building was a must have for today’s photo.

My dress today is a gorgeous partial-mesh creation from Miamai. I just love how designers are using mesh to fix that skirt prim-flap issue. Well done! I chose to wear it with my new favorite jacket in the world from Lapointe & Bastchild. I am so in love with the textures from this team, they are always detailed and flawless. And my tribute-to-Grease hairstyle is from Marleen Vaughan. Take that, Sandy!

And as if that weren’t enough! The FFL Meimei skin is giving me all kinds of chills with it’s smooth texture and creamy tone. I am wearing a tan overlay tattoo because it was a little bit on the pale side for me, but if you are looking for pale and gorgeous, Meimei is your girl! And I also love this intricately detailed jewelry set from WTG. And a shout out to my girl Maxi Gossamer, for her incredible mesh Swallow Wings lashes. I admit I was a bit skeptical when I first saw them, but I have seen the light!
