I challenge you, but you have to read it to see if you can do it.
I started blogging not too long ago, but not exactly yesterday, so I know some things, but try to be safe and say….on going learner in practice because I learn so much from all of you. I know some of us may not be close, so my question might be considered personal, but I’m going to ask it away. Do you think SL blogs are on there way out? Do you read them? Or have you navigated over to Flickr and given up your blogosphere?
I have lots of questions as you can see. I like to be a paradox, so bear with me. As a consumer, Flickr is nice. You see. You click. You sometimes fave (or perhaps cringe–NSFW pics do that, especially when not prepared). You even comment. It seems so easy. So, can someone tell me why I should blog too? Most of the amazing blogging community houses their pictures on Flickr, and most of the creators do the same. AND some creators even acknowledge they don’t look at blogs anymore (source plurk). Then, there is this new obstacle to become a blogger for an event or a creator: how many flickr favs can you garnish in 24 hours.
I am not really sure how I feel about it. So, I leave it in your hands. There is no survey. There is no multiple choice quiz. You just have to comment. Show your influence. If I get no comments, then why in the world would I use this space. I get more comments on Flickr. But, if you think blogs have a place still, sound off. Tell me. Show me. Do you buy things you find on blogs? Do you visit stores you find on blogs? Are blogs relevant? As someone who recently undertook managing a brand, I understand the need to be everywhere. It is hard to make a name for yourself, but does it matter if nobody is there? I am knocking folks. Will you answer?

I’ve been trying my best to be RL world productive this week since I don’t have to work. It is amazing what I can accomplish when I get to move on my terms without a predetermined work schedule. I have done my normal flickr flips, looking at what I might like to purchase in SL, and this dress really just caught my eye. The dress, by Rebel Hope, is available at FaMESHed in a bunch of jewel tones and it is gorgeous, which I have come to expect from Rebel Hope creations. While you are at FaMESHed, you should check out Truth’s release, Tymber. I love updos!

Bilo released this beautiful gown a few days ago. I was working on a photo for it around that time…and accidentally deleted it. So, today I set out again to try to capture the beauty of this creation. Not many can pull of such a feat–long dress, long sleeves– and make it fit so eloquently. The fabrics on each dress offer a unique color palette -gem-like and well, shimmery, so I it didn’t take me by surprise that this particular gown was called Shimmer.

I maybe might have had a small euphoric moment this weekend with the release of the GOS shoes, so if I sounded a bit too excited in my last blogpost or at some point made no sense or seemed perhaps crazy, then blame the shoes. Onward.
I saw this bombshell hair on my Flickr from DeLa, and immediately needed it, well at least in my mind it was a need because the hair is gorgeous. For some reason, I always end up wearing browns in DeLa hair. Not sure why, but I decided to be my blonde self today. Then, Ladies who Lunch released some vintage inspired jeans, and the two just instantly merged in my mind . Literally, 10 minutes earlier, I was thinking I really wanted some jeans just like these . I was somewhat baffled by this ask and receive business that I started wondering what other items I could want and if they too would just be released at that moment. I tried this strategy, but nothing else I wanted appeared, so guess it was a one shot deal.
To fancy myself up, I added Zaara’s new mesh jewelry. My only criticism of Zaara’s store is that I want more. Her releases are few and far between it seems (or I just missed a few), and I always love what I purchase there. My mood has fluctuated this week, and of course, that seeps into my editing, and I couldn’t really keep my own attention today, so sorry for the drastically different pictures. Sepia reminds me of the 70s, and I am wearing vintage looking jeans.

Did I need another pencil skirt? No. Did I want this one? Yes. While at FaMESHed, I peered upon this NYU sapphire skirt from a distance. It was love. I was bashful, not sure if I was ready to commit to another pencil skirt, so I brought a demo home to try out. I looked in my mirror at the lines of the skirt hugging my body and of the black belt with a bow sitting at my waist. Nobody could keep us apart. …and we lived happily ever after.
I needed a yellow blouse to complement my sapphire beauty, so I stumbled upon this beautiful creation. This top by Molichino is stunning. It is offered in dots and a plain version, as well as a tugged in version (seen here) and a blouse addition with bow (not pictured). Talk about versatile. The blouse is also backless- adorable. I am not sure how I missed this or when it came out, but I am glad I crossed paths with it!

I really adore when people use little props in their photos–it seems to bring movement into a picture. However, I am an itsy bit scared of them because I can hardly manage to get my little avatar looking tip-top, so add in a few butterflies, and the whole photo can quickly head south, but miraculously it wasn’t too bad–not adding much in originality, but I think it ended up looking pretty good (if I may say so)! I have been attempting Photoshop a little bit here and there, so sorry for completely overdoing it in a few places, but you have to start somewhere. ;) My top is from the always impressive store, Peqe. Oh ruffles–you are so cute! My skin and jeans are from Grixdale—they are having a closing sale (which is a shame for me, but I am glad to see someone making a decision for themselves to be happy–and her store Aura will remain open as a creative outlet). If you are smart, you will head to Grixdale before the end of this blog post or you can continue to stick around because you are curious. I am feeling long-winded today. My darling butterflies are from Lauria Poses, and I combined them with a Delmay Pose. When I put this outfit together, I was looking for some tousled medium length blonde hair, and would you know it–the Letluka gods sent out a notecard for their new hair–and would you know it–tousled medium length blonde hair–talk about “have-to-blog-it” moment.
Sending you happy thoughts.

*I am getting really lazy at details lately…but rather than log wrong information, I will come back tomorrow after my beauty sleep to fix the vague credits. But, I remembered all that without even being logged into Second Life–that makes me special…right?!
