I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. ~ Martin Luther King

Love

Valentine’s Day is about romantic love mostly, but it’s a great reminder of all sorts of love—the love for our family, love for friends, and even love for our fellow humans. I love my friends in SL and in RL. I dearly love my family. And I have found by filling my heart with love, it’s displaced the anger and fear and allowed me to give love in abundance.

Erratic Rain has come out with a shift that is absolutely gorgeous, done from her own mesh and featured in several colors. The multicolored dresses being shown on other blogs are absolutely stunning but the singular color dresses are equally as beautiful with their architectural inspiration and great fit. If you want to look sophisticated and elegant, this is the dress for you. I pair with shoes from Darling Monday, featured at Collabor88. Somehow she managed to straddle the line between cosmic and good taste with these stacked heels, fitting perfectly with the Slink feet. I couldn’t resist wearing Maxi Gossamer’s heart-shaped ring and necklace—it’s Valentine’s Day after all.

My hair is one of Truth’s new ‘dos with wild waves flowing down and a winsome side-swept bang. I loved wearing blonde with Aida Ewing’s Sylvia skin, once again piling on the makeups to experiment with looks. You really get a fat FAT pack with this set considering all the options with nose, eye makeup, lipstick and blush. And of course, she gives you many brows. Love!

Candy Corn

Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker. ~ Ogden Nash

Candy Corn

Candy corn is like crack for me. I eat it without stop if it is available, so I make sure it’s not available. I really hate that fuzzy feeling on my teeth from the sugar, though. I chose this outfit for one of the photos I submitted to LL for the front page. They didn’t choose it because another photographer also chose the outfit, so I show it here because I think it’s cute as heck. Precious Restless has put together mesh and system pieces to make this charming look. She includes two different brooms with poses and big bat wings that I chose not to wear. The pumpkins are darling and she has decorated this look with spider webs and bats that flutter around.

The perfect skin for this look was Aida Ewing’s orange eye-lined skin from last month’s Collabor88. (Yes I realize I am past due on this in the blog but the original photos were taken a bit ago.) Blonde mesh braids from MissAllSunday Lemon and intense black eyes from Ikon Innovia made my witch cute but still wicked. Finally, boots from Syntella Rhapsody, with the buttons set to copper, complete this look.

Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Ray of Beauty

School has started, which means a time of quiet and solitude for me. I have been enjoying the first few quiet days of freedom. Though I feared I was going to be lonely, I am not. It gives me time to think, putter, and smell the flowers. In this case, I get to smell the flowers in Kiddo Oh’s romantic mesh dress. In a lovely pale blush, the dress is all mesh skrit with beautifully defined shadows and floral embroidery across the bottom half of the skirt. She has combined a system piece corset for the bodice (a smart move when getting mesh pieces to fit can be a hassle) with a frilled bolero jacket. I accessorized with Maxi Gossamer’s romantic heart-shaped jewelry—simple and heartfelt for this charming look.

A Ray of Beauty

My skin is one of Aida Ewing’s gacha prizes at the Arcade. This piece has a lot of new elements—I can tell because it just doesn’t look the same on me as other Glam Affair skins. I am noticing it particularly in the eyes. They are beautifully shaded but without lining or heavy makeup. Remember, these are transferable, so get a few and send them to your friends or alts. My short curly ‘do from Tabata Jewell has a certain joie de vivre with curls tumbling about. Tabata’s hair comes with a color-changing HUD, as so many hair makers are using now, so your inventory won’t be as cluttered.
