Hey everyone!
I’ve got the happy friday feeling, so I put this picture together to celebrate.  I have been looking at a lot of blogs and love the layouts you guys use - they really show off the clothes and make me spend like crazy!  So this layout is a homage to the skills you bloggers have.  
I’ve also reached over 50 followers on tumblr!!  Thank you so so much to everyone for following my work, and I will give you even more to show in the future :D.  See you soon!

Hey peeps,
Today has been a good, relaxing day.  So what better way to celebrate then getting creative? 
I have been wanting to work on something a little more dramatic and ended up with this.  The colours and the lighting were all done in SL, the clouds/shadows were added in photoshop.  I think I’m really getting to know the settings in my SL viewer - next thing to try is shadows I think :)
Hope you all have a good Tuesday!

Hey everyone :)
2 weeks on and I’m back.  I’ve kept up with all the blogs here and love everything you guys have done.  Thanks to you I have more empty pockets (a special thanks to the free sl-stuff bloggers, I would be even poorer if it wasn’t for the great things you find for free!)
I haven’t been feeling very creative recently, but after visiting The Dressing Room’s new collection I felt a little inspired.  I’m no shopping blogger but this skin by [MONS] is an amazing deal - the make-up, the skin tone, I just love it.  And for 70 Linden? Bargain :D
I bet the majority of you know where The Dressing Room (Blue) is, but just in case: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Mimikri/201/43/22 
Have a great day, and speak soon!

Hey everyone,
Sorry it’s been another long gap since the last post, I have had a busy summer full of weddings and sadly funerals.  I’ve also decided to quit my current job after months of doing everyone else’s work, so applying for new jobs is taking up a lot of my time.
This is just a quick illustration to show I will be updating a little more frequently, or at  least once a week.  Hope you all had a brilliant Summer and hope to see you soon :)

Hey everyone!
Sorry I haven’t been around for so long, had a mix of good and bad moments in the past two weeks and got bogged down with it all.  But things are starting to sort themselves out so feel a lot better and creative once again.  Hope you are all well, I’ve been loving all the summer blogs and photography you guys have created over the last few weeks! So many beautiful looks, I am officially out of lindens thanks to you guys :)
This image was inspired by magazine covers once again, this time Tilda Swinton’s masculine and feminine cover on Dazed and Confused.  The magazine released two covers of the actress looking very elegant in one shot then very David Bowie-esque in another:

I plan to do more photos soon, it might not be as regular as it used to be for now, but I hope the gap between photos will be a lot less.  So see you next time!

Hey again!  Just had a little time to put this photo together for you all :)
This is a basic image inspired by the iconic black&white advertising of GAP.  I’ve always loved their clothes and their ad campaigns are always simple yet strong.  I wanted to create something similar to this style, and overall I think it’s not too bad.    
I am away at a friend’s wedding in France until Sunday so will probably have no update until at least Monday.  I will see you all soon - I can’t wait to go through all of your blogs and photos when I get back!

Hey! Sorry it’s been a few days, I’ve been really busy and haven’t had much time to get creative.  I’m going to France this weekend for a wedding so I am currently packing for that too!
This picture was inspired by Pride and Prejudice - I found some old English essays I wrote about the book when I was 16, and I found myself reading the novel once again.  I’m not a girly girl but I think everyone wouldn’t mind owning a Darcy, with or without Pemberley!  I found this background in my photo studio on SL and was inspired to make this.
I will try post another picture tomorrow before I leave for the weekend :) Speak soon!

Hey everyone, hope you are all having a good Saturday.
This is just a couple of editorial pictures I made recently - not much editing was needed but it was good to practise camera angles and lighting, especially with the first photo.  They aren’t anything special but I wanted to post them anyway :)
Sorry this is a short post, very busy so just running around everywhere.  See you next time!

'Rorschach Test' - a psychological test in which subjects’ perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analysed by psychological interpretation, complex algorithms, or both. Some psychologists use this test to examine a person’s personality characteristics and emotional functioning. (wikipedia)

That explained this image a lot better than I could! Wikipedia saves the day again.
I’ve always been interested in psychology, but it was the TV series Awake that really inspired this picture.  If you haven’t seen the title screens they are rorschach tests animated - instead of a still image the ink spots move and change shape.  Very beautiful, especially if you’re a big media geek like me. 
So I hope you like this mirror image :)

Hey everyone :)
I decided to take a few days off editing pictures so sorry it’s been a little longer than usual.  But I’m back!
The inspiration for this shot came from fashion magazines (in particular Vogue). I am not a big Vogue-reader but my sister has hundreds littered everywhere so I was able to look for inspiration.  Sometimes the shoots seem to just repeat themselves over the years, but I also found these beautiful watercolour shots where models were splattered with paint - very bright and colourful.  
So thanks Vogue for inspiring me and thanks to everyone for looking!  I hope everyone had a good weekend and are over the Monday blues :)

Hey everyone. This is a quick image I made whilst experimenting with new poses I bought.  I’m getting a little obsessed with them and running low on lindens because of it!
Plus I was reading through some of your tumblr posts and found these amazing brogues.  I wear these shoes all the time in real life (me and high heels don’t always get on), and I never thought I would find brogues in a million years on SL! So thank you Emmatrue (http://slashmesl.tumblr.com/) for blogging about them, I never would have found them anywhere else.
Also thank you to everyone for your likes and comments since I started doing this.  It has been just over a month and the response has been really encouraging.  All of your blogs and pictures inspire me daily, and I enjoy seeing everyone’s individual styles.  So yeah, thank you and have a great day :)
