Life Lesson

Everyday is a lesson learned.  Today I learned that:

The Art Box

If you haven’t been to the Art Box, you really should.  It is a fun place with a variety of photography sets,  fully recreated from famous photo’s & paintings in 3D, that comes in props and poses for, as you guessed, taking pictures!   I called it a place that you could go take pictures on a lazy day too; the days when you are just uninspired to put together a photography set or just plain lazy to search for a suitable venue for pictures, just go to the Art box, rezz yourself an artistic set from all the choices available and snap away.

I love the poses too, all of them go very well with the set.  Here are three that I took at the Art Box, in my beautiful Dolly dress and mini ratan bag by Zenith.  I have picked sets that are more urban to go with my looks.  There are also some classical, vintage, funny and comical ones that I could use for other days.  If I got the number right, there are at least fifty sets to choose from.

Both the Zenith Dolly dress and mini bag are available at the new cycle of The Chapter Four.  Did I mention I love heels with socks?  I absolutely adore them and I have quite a few in my SL wardrobe already but when I saw this Ellie Sock Pumps from LaRoo, I told myself I must have it.  I love the little flowers on the pump because they made the shoes just that little more feminine.

Go grab all these items and be sweet and pretty in your pictures. 🙂

HF 8 - BSD + shi 2048

Some of you may not know I have just returned from a vacation and am working very hard to catch up with blogging.  Summer is usually a slow season given most people will be spending more of their time outdoor and traveling.  Having said that, I have recently seen some notices from designers checking bloggers for their works and most time the ultimate term is removing individual from the group should a blogger didn’t meet its’ monthly requirement.

I am just not sure if this is a good time, or even a fair time, to do the check.  Everybody needs a break from whatever they are doing ocassionally.  In RL employment, employees are given paid vacation days, so why not in SL?  Not only that, a good performer in RL is sometimes rewarded with bonus too!  In SL, only a handful of employers do that.

As a HR practitioner, I am a strong believer in treating employees with fairness.  So for that matter, I have made personal decision to leave some groups because I am not sure if I could agree with the expectations.  Please don’t get me wrong.  I enjoy blogging and I love all the brands I am blogging for but I want to be able to at least enjoy my works in SL, especially it is for leisure, so I hope you will understand my decision.

I am not a multi tasker in SL, to create a post like this with three styles and four pictures usually take me at least 2 to 3 SL login days.  I work hard and always give my best when I am at work for the 50 weeks when I am not on vacation or sick, so if a designer could not bear me missing his/her items for a month, then probably I am not the right blogger for the brand.

Enough of preaching 😛 Check out my style card for some really cool items from L’accessorizes, The Chapter Four and The Food Fair too!

Have a great weekend everyone. ❤

The Girls of 007

I had the honour of walking in The Girls of 007 show yesterday produced by The Collective.   It was a show celebrating and paying tribute to 50 years of the James Bond movies, with 24 BOND girls all styled and wore clothing inspired by the movies.  These clothings were made by some really talented designers in SL as listed in the teaser below.

I was assigned two characters:

Plenty O’toole in “Diamond is Forever”

My beautiful gown for Plenty is from KeZa, made by Zaara Guzzanti. I love the shades of this gown and it is very similar to the one we saw in the movie.  As I couldn’t find necklace that look similar, I modified and combined two necklaces to make the one I was wearing.  I was also hoping I could make my shape more voluptous like the movie character but with some limitation of the mesh, I couldn’t do it.   In fact, I have to make my saddle bag smaller and hence I have decided to keep my cleverage the same size in order not to have that “top heavy” impression. 😛

My second character is Severine in the latest “Skyfall”.

….and I was wearing the gown made by Ghee. My picture doesn’t quite do justice to this gown because it sparkles and shines.  Definitely a killer piece. 🙂

I couldn’t find a similar necklace for this styling too, so I wore a dagger instead because Severine is not entirely a good BOND girl. 🙂

Those of you who were at our show yesterday, we hope you enjoyed the Show as much as The Collective team putting it together.  For those who missed it, just head down to the designer stores to grab yourself a copy of your favourite BOND girl outfit. 🙂

Have a great weekend everyone! ❤
