Twisted Color Challenge: Hemingway in the Sienna

Contrary to what Sookie might think, I am all for oranges and have enjoyed the opportunity to bust out a little more orange during the last few weeks. And this one was such a nice orange. I’ve been fiddling with my color settings lately and finally got them to a better place, from which I can show Glam Affair’s Roza skin to its best. I really like the lips on this skin, not overly large or pouty, but still generous enough not to look mean. And Ikon Innovia’s new Ardent eyes from the Boutique are the perfect combination of this week’s colors.

Skin Fair: Gauze

If you follow Rudhmellowen Laguna’s blog you will see that she showcase one of Gauze’s new skins recently. She made the Dragon Born skin look magical and mysterious. However, it made me think of the beautiful but deadly wizard-warrior Fiona Bayar in Cinda Williams Chima’s Exiled Queen. Fiery and impulsive, she also has a keen sense of justice and fair play. She’s definitely someone to watch out for.

Events, Events, and More Events

The Boutique at the Liaison Collaborative has opened, and there are some great items to be found there, you know, if you have any Ls left this month! Ikon Innovia has released another new line of eyes named Ardent. Ikon has been a busy little bee and I, for one, couldn’t be happier. Also a favorite is Caelan Hancroft’s new Sakura jewelry set. Finally, this sweet sundress from Rebel Hope is a perfect match for my cherry blossom trees.

My skin is the new Rayna skin from Amacci at Skin Fair. This is going in the books as another of my favorites this year.

Home At Last

One of my favorite items at Fashion for Life this year is this great dress from Shiki. In RL I could never wear this to work as it would be covered in chalk dust and who knows what else by the end of the day. But I can dream of having a glamorous office job, right? A job where I can wear pretty shoes like these lovely G.Field classics without fear of falling down the stairs or over backpacks (yes, both have happened ) and have perfectly coiffed hair like this smooth style by Truth Hawks that I don’t run my fingers through in frustration twenty times a day. There is a reason teachers look the way they do. Ah well, this is what SL is for, right?
