Keeping Up

Not being a regular follower of the Kardashians, I know pretty much nothing beyond their names. However, I very much like Ivy Burner’s tribute top and skirt, available at District 5. Tiffy Vella has also released her Blenheim stilettos at La Metallique Fair by L’accessories, where they will be on sale until September 9th.

    Eliza I think this is one of my favourite photos of you so far, you’ve caught a cheeky but serene look on your face. Your eyes are inviting people to look at them, and the pose is cute and casual it’s like you’ve been laying in the grass playing with the last flowers… I LOVE this photo!

Pose Fair 2012: Marukin

Some of my favorite new poses from the Pose Fair have been those from Valencia Southard at Marukin. I am always intrigued by the names Valencia gives her poses, and they never fail to resonate realistically with me. Much as I would like to say that I leap around editorially all the time, the truth is that I just want to show what real clothes would look like in a position that a real body would normally assume. Marukin provides a lot of options for that. In fact, in the second photo is a pose I used this very day when a student asked if she could come make up her test at a certain time. (My face was not as serene, though, since I was mentally going through what other appointments or meetings I might have scheduled!)

My shirt is from a new-to-me store, Oh! It’s only on the Marketplace right now, but hopefully it will soon make it in world! I love the flow and semi-transparence of this mesh top! It comes in about a jazillion (totally made-up word) colors and patterns so check it out.

Lemongrass

During my very first visit with my mother-in-law I got so sick I thought I was going to die.  And my husband was out somewhere with my brother-in-law so it was just me and her. Can anybody say AWKWARD??? But being the amazing lady she is, she made me an herbal tea that to this day is probably the most heavenly thing I can think of to drink, whether hot or cold. And I didn’t die, so who knows whether it was just a passing thing or if it was magic tea???

This gorgeous new skirt from coldLogic reminded me of that tea today…if you feel like making it here is what to use:

2 parts dried lemon verbena leaves (you can use fresh as well)
1 part dried lemongrass
1 part dried melissa leaves (I believe this is called lemon balm in English)

Pour boiling water over the dried leaves and let it sit for 5-7 minutes. Strain out the leaves. Add sugar or whatever sweetener you like and enjoy your own little moment of heaven.
