It’s so wonderful to have friends who are willing to do blog pics with you. ūüôā Thanks to the sexy ladies Kaiden & Bianka for posing with me and Kaiden for taking the pic! Mwahs to you both!

When You’re the Best of Friends…

Hanging with my SL bestie!

When You're The Best of Friends

When you’re the best of friends,
Having so much fun together,
You’re not even aware you’re such a funny pair,
You’re the best of friends.

Spring Rains: Exposeur @ Pose Fair

Spring Rains

Spring Rains 2

Spring is officially here (at least according to the calendar). And the best, or worst – depending on how you look at it – part of spring is the rain that nourishes the ground making all things green and growing again. With a little help from {Exposeur} and [HANDverk], I’m managing to stay (mostly) dry and still look cute. The pose and umbrella prop will be available at {Exposeur}‘s shop at¬†The Pose Fair which opens this Friday. Yay Pose Fair! Here’s to hoping you stay dry during the usual spring deluge.

Spring Fling

Spring Fling

Spring is in the air! We’re getting glimpses of the warmer weather here, although there is still a chance for another snow shower. Love the fact that spring seems to invigorate everyone. It gives me a renewed energy to blog again after a long and lazy winter. Spring brings lots of fabulous new events that I¬†definitely¬†don’t have the money to shop but it’s always fun to go and look!

52 Weeks of Color – #47 & #48

Almost caught up! So sad to think that our precious color challenge is nearly at an end. Only 3 more weeks left. *sniff sniff* I have no idea what I’m supposed to do after that. Luna’s cc gives me something to blog on a regular basis and I’m for sure going to miss that.

#47 - Barley Corn

#48 - Tangelo

52 Weeks of Color – #38 Papaya Whip

I honestly have no idea what color the swatch was. ¬†I’ve been back and forth with what color it actually is whether a pinkish or a peach-ish,¬†but I went with what¬†Wikipedia called it – a light orangey-peach color. I think I used this Grixdale¬†dress last year for a color but it works for Papaya Whip too.

I do find things a bit more difficult this round.¬†Most of these are colors completely foreign to me, but isn’t that part of the challenge? I wonder what next week will bring.

Black & White Challenge

So yesterday when I was perusing other blogs in search of feldgrau posts to perv, I came to¬†No Rainey Days¬†by Rainey Manx and a beautiful black and white pic of her. The gorgeous image was made for a Black & White Challenge thrown down by Maci Restless of ¬† I’m always up for a new challenge to stretch my PS and photography skills. Since I posed with Kaiden for her challenge photo, I asked her to take my picture for my (slightly more clothed) take.

Thank you for this challenge Maci!
