You’ve got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You’re gonna find, yes, you will
That you’re beautiful as you feel

~ “Beautiful” by Carole King


Beauty has a way of finding itself outwards as well as back inwards. Consider the study by Nick Yee and Jeremy Bailenson that found that when one represents with a taller or more beautiful avatar, one feels more confidence, what they call the Proteus effect. I certainly know I feel more generous and kind to others when I am feeling good about myself, and that includes feeling good about my avatar. This lovely dress from Geryn Sloane adds a definite sense of loveliness with its roses printed on a swirling translucent skirt. A bow at the waist makes it picture pretty.


What really makes the look is this gorgeous skin from Carina Larsen. I am not sure why more are not talking about these skins—they are blushingly beautiful with well defined lips, lovely makeup, and great eyebrows. Truth Hawks’ new hair, a sweet wavy pinned back style, suits this gentle look. I wonder—does he subscribe to hair magazines? Does he secretly photograph women? How does he come up with all these hairstyles?


I have often asked myself the reason for THE sadness
In a world where tears are just a lullaby
If there’s any answer, maybe love can end the madness
Maybe not, oh, but we can only try
