Thanking Nile Karas of FLOWERDREAMS

I have to say Thank You to Nile, she has been and still is a wonderful and caring friend. Her creations so artfully crafted and so feminine, Once upon a time SL was full of places to go where a gown was a necessity, always staing please wear formal.

Not so much now and in some ways its a little sad that SL is merging so closely to RL Do I really want to look like the CHAV in the town centres (no thanks), the magic and fantasy lessens. FLOWERDREAMS Gowns are truly fantasy and therefore hold a touch of magic, One of my all time faves is the Princess Turandot gown it is so pretty. So Thank You Nile for keeping a little Magic in SL.

8154511826_1cca7f3773As I stated on Flickr,  If your gonna wear something  Fabulous,  then do it Fabulously,  if not,  then dont  bother  to wear  it.

Snapshot_122Just  recently  I have been   kindly sent some  items to blog from LUSH*Limited by Xi Zane,   and  I really  am not that mad on mesh, too much of anything is not brilliant, and never  one to run with the pack, I have avoided it  if at  all possible,  but Xi sent these  and yes  there are the same styles  with other creators bla bla, and yes some are  really nice,  But it was the textures that gave   LUSH  the edge for me, and her color pallette.

So  for once I am not  moaning about mesh, I am liking it, lol, But  seriously  if you are buying mesh,  check out  the textures, cos bad textures  make  for  bad mesh.  at least Xi  got  it right, I love this new  range.

8243055853_d0a65de5fc_zLOL   these are shoes By BSD Design studio and me not in much else  ok cheeky shoes called for a cheeky shot, and BabyChampagne Sass is  starting to  make noises in the shoe world with her pretty neat shoes, yep I am shoe freak in rl  and  sl,  heaven knows why I dont wear the darn things    hahaha, and I love Dogs in sl and Rl  too  xox

Snapshot_174aThis is truly  one of my  all time fave shots, and this  Gown by Vivien emerald of DESIR’  was a  group gift,  she really   does spoil her group members, and I just fell in love  with this, and  yes she is  a personal friend and  yes  one could say I am biased towards my friends, but I really am not, and where credit is due its due, She is a very talented  young designer, and I wish her a wonderful  future with her store, she works  hard and really does some wonderful and inspiring  Creations.

Snapshot_043TRYST my first main build by myself, it was a bit of a daunting task I had always been the Ideas Person, I am not a skilled  builder, I just see the build,  but sick of others taking credit for my work, I decided  this one would be mine in total,  gosh  what a learning  curve.

7181747243_04b8d1f019_bI love this  shot because I got to do the drama Diva, in it,  lol,  That dress from VeroModero just called  for  this type of photo,  and I love Bouquet Babii of Vero Modero,  she is  always so nice to  talk to.

8137797576_84184f31bcA Fave it had to be,  I was so honored, when Zibska  did a  Xia  dress,  I took loadssss of shots,, but this was my fave.  and if you want wild and wonderful   for jewelry , make up, and original  wear, then Zibska  has to  be one of the best places I know in SL.

 

7060890961_e563c6f5eb_bA fave shot, Wearing a Top hat and Bovver  Boots is not generally advised with a couture  gown,  but fortunately for me,  the Designer  Loved it, but  then  again, I love  the Designer,  she is a pretty  amazing lady  who I met  long beforeI entered  the Modelling world, Her gowns are  some of the most wonderful to be found In Second life,  and Nile Karas  herself is one of the nicest  People you could  ever wish  to meet.

6380930199_2e53ba01f0_bone of my all  time fave shots, this was a comp entry for  a comp that  never happened,  there are a lot of those in Second Life, beware, they  get you to buy stuff, then the comp dies a death, unlike  RL  there is no come  back or refund on  money you may have spent.

 

 

 

I hate Blogging

8194896265_27be5811e2_o

Oh godd that sounds  bad, I hate Blogging, but in all honesty,  I do, its  sooo boring, ok I get to style some pretty amazing items, but I  just  hateeee  blogging.

I truly am not a  lets write drivel person, I see  some blogs, that are pretty  Good, the ones I follow are  cool,  but some jeeeeeeeeezzzuz forgive me for my sins, but pleeeeaseeeeeeeeee.

Theyre  that sweet you could throw up after reading. what makes  them even   funnier is the fact that the writers are not in the least sweet, a couple of them are the most vindictive and vilest people   one would  never  wish to meet.

Theyre  the ones  who wouldnt spit on you if you were on fire, but  are all over you if  they think it may just forward their positioning in  a higher circle. aaaaaaaaaah   fogive me    for my observations.

People  say well  you have a blog, yep  this is called a blog and  yet its more of a  Diary for me, ok  I throw odd  blog posts in,   cos its expected,  and yes in a way its a   part of my  journey  through  the  SL  fashion  and Model world.

Talking  of which, what  on earth is going on  in the  model and fashion world, with the advent of mesh I am seeing some atrocities that really shouldnt  leave  the drawing board.

Then add to that a sloppy  wannabe model, who cant  be assed to check if one alpha  has removed another while dressing,  jeez I went to one event the other evening,  and  I am such a  sod, I cam  people  checking  lol,  and the amount of bare asses  and backs showing thro mesh clothes   hahahahaha, was  fabulous,  theyre all standing there in  those silly affected  poses they use, with bare bits  hanging out at one of the  supposedly prestigious events.

Ohh god  forgive my  irreverence.

But seriously if  you stood in that position for more  than  2 mins you would be in hospital  with spinal issues  for weeks  hahahaha. og  now I  have to  get some shots of the poses and  do  an irreverent photo shoot.

I do  wonder someitimes if their viewer is showing a different view than mine,   truly I do.

Well  I am declaring this blog a non blog,  its  a diary,   so now I guess I will have to  do another blog, that is just blog and then a blog to blog that,  omg  this  could go on and on .

Now I am starting to write drivel for the sake of it, so  signing off,

If anyone is mad enough to read this

My  friend, you have to be  as mad as me, have a fabulous  Day,

Much Love

Xia

I  Dont  often sneek  out from my sim in Second Life,  due to alwaysss being busy, either  taking  shots  of fashions sent  to me by wonderful Designers or Playing round  at building,  Tryst is ever evolving, and   so often I  just  lose time  being lost in  attempting new things.

However when I  saw that Buffy Holfe, had an Art installation going on  I had to sneek out to take a peek,  Buffy  does  some  Fabulous  Artwork  that I follow on Flicr, so  this was a new  thing for  me to check out.

 

I arrived  at a super reception area,  and  LOL  it even had a pink  catwalk,  just kiddin, but  if its a long walkway its a  runway to me  hahah.

Snapshot_037

seeeeeeee LOL,   ok from  here we  go through a wonderful   door  into a  pink entrance, Now I am not a lover of pink and   not of abstract art  in general, but this pink  entrance   kind of fascinated me.

8227669244_32b2f95c8b_bDont ask I still dont figure why,  it just did.

from  through  that dark entrance I found myself in this amazing space  with  artwork of   Buffy about to hit me on the head with a  huge wand,

8227660674_80fef52531_band words  keading my way,

Snapshot_060I really was  fascinated,  it was  like walking  through  a  magical world  and   I half expected to meet the Tin Man at some point, after  camming round  and watching all the  art flying through me and past me  I  went foreward again  and  entered;-

I  spent an hour or more, just enjoying  this, its full of light and   just  color, I know  people  rave  about certain artists on SL but I am personally sick of depressing, darkness, there is enough of  that in real life, for me  this was  just  so refreshing to see.

Buffy you are  a STAR.

Thankyou  for sharing ,

Much Love

Inspirations

 

As a lover of music, I often find that  a song or melody will inspire a shot or outfit, I have music throughout the  day,  loving psychill,  classical some  rock,  and  just love  songs with message and meaning, I kinda of  have a love hate relationship with you tube,   I have found so much music I amy  never have heard, but those damnnn adverts drive me  nuts.

This shot was inspired  by   a  super sound  I  was listening  to called  sleeper in metropolis, by Anne  Clark a blend of electronic music and poetry

Wearing

Jeans By Bliss Couture,

Hair  by KMadd

Jacket  Riccielli.

one of my  very first shots as a new model,

Have a great week,

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes, and every year approximately 50,000 die from this disease.

We are back!

PRETTY BALD IN PINK Photo Campaign is a charity project aimed to promote knowledge and support for cancer victims, families and everyone affected by this disease.

just WORDS

There are so many blogs out there, all full of  words, words of wisdom, words of inspiration  Blogging is kind of like a diary,  we put things  in  that are relevant to the day,

As a Model in SL , mine will often be a creation   that I am wearing, hoping that the information I give will  help another to style  and buy  that outfit.

 

But also  I often sneeek in art shots, and really I spend far to much time on this  computer  when I should be  doing other things.

 

Often seen are quotes  by   the  famous and wise, words  to aspire to,   a few may even manage to live up to the words they choose,  but I doubt it.

 

Profiles in Second life  are a  great source of entertainment, Often  they contain these quotes,  yet  when you actually  talk  to the person bearing the words, Its   actually frightening.

They could no sooner live up to those words than shoot themselves in the foot.

I am always very wary of  people with quotes of wisdom and drops of poison in  there profiles now.

As a species, we are so lucky  to have the ability of words, yet  we abuse  them daily, theyre  powerful little  things, its so easy to make someone feel very  Good, or very very  bad about themselves with just a word.

For me, my motto is if I have made one person smile in a day,  then  it has been a very  Good Day.

Use your words wisely, I always try to.

Have a  beautiful day,

Much Love

Xia
