Pondering…

I was working on this picture in PS while my 5-year old came standing next to me and asked what I was doing. I told her I am making a picture then I pointed at the screen and asked what she see…

“ooooo I saw a fairy!!” She exclaimed. “Can you make her move??”
“Sorry darling, it is a picture. I can’t make her move.” I replied.
Then, I pointed at the girl “What do you think she is doing?”

“She is looking out the window….” before I could say more my daughter continues “…and she looks bored sitting there!”

Why Do I Blog Meme?

So I logon to WordPress this morning and wanted to do a Meme blog challenge, championed by Strawberry Singh, because I started the challenge late and wanted to catch up…..and as berry throws out really fun topics on weekly basis, like the one she posted today about “My SL Guilty Confessions Meme” there are many old topics that I wouldn’t want to miss too, so today I am going to do….

“Why Do I Blog Meme?”

Since there are 14 questions, I should get going….please read on!

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers to your post, delete my answers and input your own. Try not to swear at Berry in your head for having so many questions this week and don’t forget to leave a comment in this meme’s post so others can come by and read your answers as well.

Molichino + COCO + Diva + shi 1024

1. How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging since early of year 2008, on blogspot.

2. Why did you start blogging?

My RL friend, JoV, encouraged me to do so and that’s how I know about blogspot.  My first blog was a Second Life fashion blog inspired by a popular SL blogger back then, Milla Michinaga, and also a friend of mine, Ruriko Bracken.  I did it mainly for fun because I liked to shop and mix and match my clothings so I thought I would just take some photos and share them with whomever were interested.  In the same year, I started another blog with Masaru, about fashion and our daily lives. Unfortunately, things slowed down drastically in year 2009 because of RL , so much that I almost left SL so I took both the blogs down.  September 2011, after returning to SL and picking up modeling again, I decided to start this blog.

3. How many times a week do you post an entry?

An average of 3 to 4 posts a week.  I try to blog something on the weekends because that I noticed I get more readership and traffic to my blog and flickr on thesedays.

4. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis?

I read many SL fashion blogs and in RL mostly about fashion, cooking, travel, books and children stuffs.  I have to say fashion is the most regular one and the rest are just when I really have the time.   This is because whenever I am sitting in front of my PC, SL, skype, flickr, photoshop and wordpress are the most active windows for me. 😛

5. Do you comment on other people’s blogs?

I do, but not on regular basis and I really wish I have more time to do so because some posts need time to digest and I don’t want to make non-meaningful comments. 🙂 I will, however, click “Like” if a post has beautiful pictures and interesting topic, even if I do not have time to read them in details.

6. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have?

I don’t keep track on regular basis.  Having said that, I check my stats once a week because I am always curious where my readers are from and which posts have the most readers. 🙂  It is always very encouraging to see I have new followers.  I truly appreciate the supports and comments I am getting todate. ❤

7. Did you ever regret a post that you wrote?

No regret, otherwise the post would have been taken down. 🙂 I did have doubts on a couple of posts as I wrote them and I pondered for hours before I finally clicked that “Publish” button.  Some days I am more vocal on my thoughts especially when I feel strongly about certain topics that are also pertaining to myself.  One of the posts would be my thoughts about the finale of a beauty contest I participated last year and another one that I posted recently regarding some incidents I experienced in RL…but no regrets definitely. 🙂

8. Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog?

I believe so.  I tried to be versatile in my stylings and pictures but the same time I try to write something in every post whenever time permits. I find it more personal that way, so readers have been reading my thoughts. 🙂

9. Do you blog under your real name?

I never blog with my real name.  Even with my RL blog, I don’t use my real name.
10. Are there topics that you would never blog about?

There are topics that I am definitely not good at, such as politics, religion, exotic gadgets and topics about sexual orientations.   I am also not a big fan of combat / war.

11. What is the theme/topic of your blog?

My blog focused on fashion and ocassionally I talked about my lives and thoughts, so I called it a fashion journal.

12. Do you have more than one blog?

I have a rl blog that sadly I have not posted for quite awhile now.  I started that blog because I needed an outlet and vent about my unhappiness and frustration when I first moved to Canada.  As things are slowly looking up, I blogged about some funny stuffs my daughter did or said and before I stop blogging there, I changed the theme and even the name of the blog to something more bright and cheerful.  Unfortunately, it is hard to keep up with two blogs with a demanding rl so I haven’t been there for sometime now.

13. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging?

My blog is like my personal space in expressing myself,  in this case about my fashion style, creativity and thoughts.  I observe the responses relating to my posts as feedback and improvement and just like Strawberry, I am connected to more SL bloggers this way, people that share common interests in SL. 🙂
14. So, why do you continue to blog?

It is always fun to see what style I can come up with everyday with the items I received from the designers and items I bought.  It is motivating to see there are great and talented designers that entrusted me with their creations and readers that have come back to my blog again and again for ideas and reading pleasure.  These are the reasons that have kept me going in blogging.  Another reason is I get to practice my photography skills.

So here are my 14 good Meme answers for why do I blog. 🙂

A Big Post for A Big Day

It’s was big day for me yesterrday.  Firstly, it was the second audition for AVENUE casting and also, I was celebrating the first day of Chinese Lunar New Year in RL.  With that in mind, I have decided to use red colour for all my pictures today. 😀

In this post, I will be sharing my stylings for the second phrase of the AVENUE casting and also a casual chic look, something that I would wear on my first day of Chinese New Year. 🙂

I have to say both the themes for audition yesterday were really challenging to my experience.

The first styling is an inspiration of Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2013 collections.  Models were asked to study the Collections and put on our own coin on it.  When I saw the Collections, immediately I thought of the Linen Blouse from .SHI that I bought at the Black Friday event last year.  It was a limited edition item and hence not many have seen it on the grid, which was a great news to me. 🙂 I was really excited when Joy told me she is going to release the same blouse in Spring textures in the near future.  The best experience was being able to show case one of the designs at the live audition yesterday, prior to the release 🙂  Not only that, I also have the priviledge to put on the sleeves that .SHI has prepared as a group gift for its’ member and will also be released the same time as the top.  A big thank you to Joy Laperriere for sending me these items to use for this round of audition.  <333

As the blouse is a lovely and signature piece, the challenge is to make my personal coin stood out.  AW S/S 13 Collections emphasized on clean cut, so I wanted to made sure all the accessories I used were carrying the same essence; and below is the results.  This is my most favourite styling among the four I have done for this casting.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

AW SS 1250
The Second theme is Avant Garde/Fetish. I have to admit this is not my strongest styling although I did a lot of research on this theme, in each of the area i.e. avant garde, fetish, architectural, structural, and trying to think how I could incorporate all of them and still look good and over the top.  A friend reminded me that the styling has to tell a story so I spent most of my last two weeks on this particular theme, styled and restyled.  I knew my styling for this theme was not extraordinary so I tried to make it up with poses.  Now, I will let you be the judge. 🙂

Avant Garde

Now, a lighter topic. 🙂

After the audition, I have put on an all new and bright look for the first day of Chinese New Year.  It is a Chinese tradition to wear new and red clothings on this auspicious day, so it was cool that I get to do that in SL too.  The Chinese Lunar New Year runs for 15 days, starting on Feb 10. If you want a bright and modern chic Chinese New Year look, check my style card. 😉

Big post
I hope you had a great weekend like I did and wishing everyone a great start for the year of snake. 😉
