{ All the World’s a Stage } FLF

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have  their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts…” (William Shakespeare)

This couldn’t be more perfect a statement for the world of Second Life as well as First Life… I’ve come to realize lately more than ever that sometimes you have to accept that people will come and go in your life or that at times you will be close and then over time drift away.  Perhaps only to fulfill a need for a time, to play the role they were meant to play and help grow you in some small way… sometimes even by hurting you.  But life doesn’t stop there, and you have to brush yourself off and go back out in the spotlight.  You were meant to be there afterall.  You were meant to impact someone else’s life too.  Maybe you will never know that you even did.  Life is just a succession and combination of experiences.  Be who you want to be, do what you want to do, and love who you want to love.  So when the curtain closes, you can take your bow for a job well done.

And now putting away the deep-thoughts hat and getting to the styling.  Today oOo Studio is releasing this lovely new set of poses for Fifty Linden Fridays called “Elizabeta” designed to show off the hands, particularly the Slink Mesh hands that we love so much.  Mixing and matching the different hand poses along with the modeling poses to give you some unique looks.

 Edgy-Full_FINAL

Been a busy week in both worlds, not leaving me much time for blogging but with the start of FaMESHed and C88 for May and the plethora of other new releases from some of my other favorite stores, I can’t help but want to show stuff off.  Gospel Voom just came out with yet another pair of sexy sleek wedge heels for his Gos Boutique line.

Edgy-Shoes_FINAL

Ikon Innovia has just released some beautiful new eyes called “Vanity” in a great array of colors.  You can even go pick up some in “denim” blue for the May VIP group gift.  The Plastik’s new collection of skinny jeans had me salivating because the designs were so unique and edgy.. Had to grab a few of those!  I’m a little slow to the party, but this look begged for some ear piercingsand I had just recently discovered the mesh ears from Mandala that were exactly what I needed… there are actually 3 different choices now for piercing styles that are all HUD operated (which I love) as well as one ear set that is un-pierced.  Gizza’s new bracelet watches along with LeLutka’s Emeli hairdo are hot hot hot and uber edgy.

Very different from my usual look but I am loving it.  Til tomorrow when dress-up begins all over again. 😛

{ Here Comes the Sun }

It’s been a long winter over in my part of the world… teasing us with a hint of Spring here and there, but never quite sure if it will last. I even know a few SL friends out west and north that are still having to put up with snow!   Around SL, Spring is clearly here and in full swing, reflected in the fashions hitting the stores as well as the beautiful home & garden items debuting.

Rhonda_FINAL-2

I have been taking full advantage as I try to get my own home in SL decorated for the season and if you’re looking to do the same, I highly recommend you not miss this new event “The Garden” by The Liason Collaborative that just began this week and will run through May 10th.  This round’s theme is English Garden Party and they have some amazing items out by many of your favorite home and garden designers like {What Next}, Cheeky Pea, and LISP as well as some up and coming ones like Alouette featuring the gorgeous Garden Party set and RageWorks who designed this very lovely detailed Gazebo.

GardenPartySet-ALL

In addition to The Garden, many of the other events and new store releases are featuring pastel shades to compliment and lots of floral patterns are the trend.  I picked up this frilly and feminine top over at Tee*fy and found the wide legged linen pants at BOOM out for FLF last week to match perfectly.  The poses I’m using are NEW from oOo Studio and are out today only for Fifty Linden Fridays, so be sure to grab those!  Rhonda-Close_FINAL

Now I’m all dressed up and ready for Spring soiree because… here comes the sun!

For anyone that follows my work (even prior to blogging) they would probably say I have a certain style to my photos.  I am sure most of the time it comes across as more romantic and whimsical (like my last few posts), sometimes sensual.  Not usually edgy.  Although it’s fun to venture outside the box sometimes.  It’s one of the things I like best about Second Life actually: being able to change my style according to my mood or just simply to be different.  I’ve often felt that in my real life I am viewed a certain way… I’m a mom, the good girl, the wife.  I do dishes and laundry and carpool kids to soccer practice.  Yet there is so much more to my interests, my personality, ME… than what everyone sees.  In RL, I can’t dye my hair black and wear leather studded miniskirts when dropping my son off to school (well, I can, but I’m sure I’d get some pretty strange looks, particularly from my 6 year old).   So sometimes I enjoy exploring those not so typically ‘good girl’ sides to myself through my SL.  Because here, I am anything I wanna be.  For the moment.

More Singles poses coming to POSE FAIR

A few other photos I’d been working on of some of the new singles packs coming to POSE FAIR from oOo Studio.  A big thank you to both Jordan Whitt and Anubis Darkwatch for gracing me with their stylishness and modeling for me.  The poses featured are from each of the two ‘Lookbook’ sets and the ‘Guy’ singles pack.

FashionSingles_FINAL

It was fun working with both Anubis and Jordan, who I’m fortunate to call friends.  A last minute call out to have them come model for me and they arrived in perfect spring fashion.  With all the pastel colors out this season i knew I wanted something chic but also light and bright for the scene.. Apple Fall’s minimalist style Paris skybox was the ideal match.  Now if only my weather outside in the real world would consider joining me for Spring and stop with all this snow. D:
