With the weird weather we have been having, I feel like I should be far away from the city and in a place like this:

Then of course, since in SL I can actually wear something like this and not frighten the daylights out of everyone, I would grab my adorable new Seashell bikini from Rezzie Luckstone. My lovely skin from Carisma Creations is the perfect backdrop:

Giving Up

I saw this sentiment on Rezzie Luckstone’s offering at Wear Gray and it stayed with me the whole day. Many people assert that giving up is the weak, easy thing to do, but I disagree. Sometimes giving up is very, very difficult, sometimes impossible. Sometimes that heart just won’t let us do it. Many times that’s a good thing and difficulty is overcome. Sometimes a life is wasted in pursuit of the unattainable. But the urge to keep trying is a large part of our humanity. After all, how does the saying go?

Mind over matter.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Aquamarine

Challenge winners from last week are:

1. Kaelyn Alecto
2. Jasmine Ballinger
3. Ygrey Auer

Watch for your gift in-world!

This week didn’t turn out quite as I had planned—I went to the Rejectz sim to take a photo and inadvertently set up right in the middle of some gun shooting event. The sim owner, Sh0rtie, was extremely gracious and even posed for me…he looks all kinds of bad, huh? I am definitely in the wrong part of town! During our conversation Sh0rtie did let me know that Glue has the best tattoos—so you know where to go, everyone! This is only a small part of the sim, but it’s a great build. Remember that it is a roleplay sim, so if you go there please respect the rules.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Dandelion

The winners of my Alli&Ali hair challenge last week are:

Tigist Sapphire

Laila Laperriere

Cari Teardrop

Congrats! Send me an email or IM and let me know what style and color you’d like!

So now it’s true confession time—who used to rub dandelion pollen all over their faces when they were little? My mom used to get so mad at my brothers and sisters and I because anytime in June that we were playing outside invariably saw us come home with yellow hands and faces. Rezzie Luckstone’s sunny dandelion tee-shirt brought back lots of springtime memories:

If you haven’t been over to Izzie Button’s store to see how she has decked out her sim for spring, get over there asap! The place is gorgeous!

One of my favorite things I am wearing today has to be my mesh sneakers from Hoc Industries. I found these at the Festival of Sin and I haven’t taken them off since! There are about a million different color combinations and do they work for girls or guys??? Oh, yes, they do! So this week I’m going to give away three pair. Just leave your comment below by Friday, March 2nd.

February Fun

February is my least favorite month of the year. It has always been this way. February seems terribly blah to me. It’s the coldest month of the year where I live (although at least this year that doesn’t mean much) and it’s just feels like I’m in limbo, waiting for spring. Oh, and I always do the taxes in February. What a great month!

Valentine’s Day is stuck in there to liven things up, but honestly my husband and I only have one tradition…to see who can find the sappiest card available. In SL I haven’t delved the depths of greeting card sappiness, but I do adore Rezzie Luckstone’s cute Valentine’s Day t-shirts. So I got some of the gals together and had a little February fiesta. (Although it may have been more like a torture session to them!)

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Iron

First things first: Thanks to everyone who commented last week–the lucky giveaway winners are (drum roll…..):

  1. Ygrey Auer
  2. Lashae Karsin
  3. Nicandra Laval

Congratulations ladies! Watch for your gift in-world! And for everyone else, keep on reading because I had so much fun with this I have decided to make it a weekly color-challenge event!

Now, however, we move on to Iron. There were so many ideas that came to mind–Iron Man, ironing, wrought iron, Iron Maiden (yikes!)…why don’t we just stop there! What stuck in my head most though was a song I sang in college, and it is pretty appropriate for the kind of weather we are having lately in my neck of the woods:

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

-Christina Rosetti, Gustav Holst

So what did I do? I grabbed my friend Caroline and we took to the snow, I in my ultra-chic jacket from Sascha Frangili and Caroline in a beautiful jewelry set from Endra Graves and one of this week’s color challenge offerings from Rezzie Luckstone:

012112b

012112a

So now for the giveaway…it will be the same as last week, you’ll have until Friday, January 27th at 11pm SLT to make a comment on this post. Winners will receive the Maggie Set from Artistry by E, beautifully modeled by Caroline. This week I will randomly draw two names from the list of comments. Now, I am not going to do jewelry every time, there will be other items in the future as well (guys, I am keeping you in mind!), but the talented Endra Graves has generously agreed to be my giver this week.

And even though we are past the Christmas season, if you are feeling like reliving the season a bit, here are two versions of “In The Bleak Midwinter”, the first by the great Annie Lennox and the second more traditional version from the Gloucester Cathedral Choir:

    But thanks for the extra element of fun in our weeks of colour

  9. mscrankypants

    I think iron is going to be one of my favourite weeks already — two great looks there.

    Hey, it’s Jasmine Ballinger, working around a stupid WordPress/Blogger communication issue.

  10. Madison

    It is wonderful to see how not really wearing a lot of color still makes you look fabulous. Love the hair on Caroline!!! Running over to Emo-tions to get it!!! See ya!!!

  11. Laura18 Streeter

    Aw they’re both adorable but I just love your first pic!

  12. The Uncommon Muse

    you both look stunning!!

  13. Nicandra Laval

    Hi Eliza..i was honoured to get a present for my comment..thanks so much!! Now about this look: I love the first picture the most. It is as if the lace at the end of the arms could be made of iron. Your fresh look and all the grey tones and the pose makes it a great look .. compliments ..bye bye Nic

  14. Sama Yalin

    Beautiful pictures and two beautiful ladies.
    It’s a good thing you guys didn’t do the Iron Maiden option…

  15. ♪ Guenevere ♪

    Gorgeous photos! The background for each is the perfect complement to the outfits.

TGIF

Another week comes to an end…another opportunity to wear some fabulous items from SL designers. Today I wanted something casual and this short dress from Rezzie Luckstone was just the thing. It’s simple, it’s short-but-not- too-short, and it comes in all sorts of colors. A perfect staple to have in your SL inventory. My scarf is from League—there always seems to be just the perfect item or accessory at that store!

I am also reminding everyone that today is the last day to enter my giveaway of Maxi Gossamer’s mesh Shell Earrings fatpack! If you want to enter, comment on last week’s Color Challenge post today  before 11pm SLT.  I am wearing one of the colors in my photos below… you know you want them, don’t you??? I will be announcing the three winners on the next color challenge post on Saturday, Jan.21st!
