free moments stolen under the sun

I think my favorite purchase in this photo is that little paper boat purse available at Kustom9.  It just is so adorable.  Isn’t it?  Of course, my outfits are super cute as well.  Shai is creating beautiful clothing, and I can’t wait to see what they do next.  My outfit on the right by Casa del Shai can be found at Kustom9.  The Secret Store also puts out such marvelous designs.  This particular set had some variations to the outfit, and I loved how you could mix and match them (style and color) to form endless looks.

Do I look too similar in this photo?  I tried to look different because well, I didn’t want two of  me in the same picture! Different skin, but same brand-Glam Affair. I think I look very different. I made one shape in 15 minutes and the other is my normal shape (left).  I photoshopped them together into the same photo.  It is just easier for my system if I do that, and I am slow, so asking for someone to pose with me would seriously be torture for them. I take forever and then some.

Cemetery of Forgotten Books

Poses by Sari Sari-I❤ books [#5-6 shown] *NEW @ Geeks’n’ Nerds//Available Nov 24th

Two new items that hit close to my heart were released in the last few days:  A belted pencil dress with tie (also without tie option) and high slit on the side, as well as,  a set of poses called I❤ books.  Two items couldn’t be more appropriate to blog together.  Ugh. I love when the universe collides and offers small gifts.  A library picture was in my future and because of the dork I am, I got excited.  I did attempt to find an on-location spot, but I ended up resorting to my trusty G.O.D. Library.  I may or may not rez this and just sit and look at it.  Judge away.

Girl Thursday is a new brand, mainstore at The Deck.  However, my dress is their only current release available at The Attic, so make sure to stop by here to check this dress out.  Girl Thursday should be releasing more items throughout this month, and I hope continuing because I want more.  You can read about them at their website. Bravo to a great first release!

My poses are a new release from Sari Sari.  The store carries a myriad of couple poses, decor, and cute single poses like the one I using today called I❤ books.  I really did enjoy coming up with a scene using these poses, and as soon as I did I was reminded of a series called The Cemetery of Forgotten Books by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, hence the title of my post. You can find this new pose release at Geeks’n’Nerds event! More info here!

I also chuckled when I decided on using Party Girl by Exile just because I found it pretty hilarious to use hair named this and a post about books and a library.  I know pretty silly, but it still entertained me.

“Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”  –Shadow of the Wind by Zafón

Truth Model Contest coming to an end.

Pose-Exposeur-Underwater (top photo)

So the Truth Model Search is coming to a close, and I just wanted to show off my entries.  I am proud of them!  My theme apparently ended up being bubbles.  Someone somewhere mentioned how those bubble wands children get at parties were such a pain because the soapy water gets everywhere, and I was like bubbles…did someone say bubbles?  Idea born.  I had some other ideas, but lack of time and inability to make those work sidelined those pictures.  I tried!  It has been fun filtering through the pictures in the pool and discovering new blossoming photographers and bloggers in Second Life!
