52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Wenge

As the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge draws to a close, I’ve had an ample amount of time to think about my blog and the future of my blogging in Second Life. I’m not the greatest of bloggers – I don’t have the most amazing picture quality, most creative outfits, or most expensive and best made clothes, but blogging has definitely taught me quite a lot… even if my contribution is but a speck on the radar. Blogging has taught me about Photoshop, websites, community, and so much more, and even if I’ll be disappearing from the Second Life fashion blogger community for a spell, I’ll always remember these valuable lessons. If/when I return, I hope to be able to contribute more to this blog and to Second Life in general. Now I am busy with RL, and whenever I do manage to make it on SL I’m spending all my time at the Hogwarts: Your Story RP. Throughout my long years on SL (previous to my creation of this account) I’ve learned that it’s impossible to be good at everything and you cannot stretch yourself too thin. My choices were either focus entirely on blogging or focus entirely on roleplay, and at this time I’ve chosen to spend my time in SL roleplaying.

Anyway, here’s my outfit for this week’s color: Wenge. I really do like this color, a nice and deep gray, perfect for fall. I especially adore this new cardigan from Vive9 – definitely a must-buy! I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Meet Kate Beaumont

For a while I’ve been fairly reclusive in SL, only wandering out of my teeny skybox home to shop for blog items and partake in 50L Fridays, etc. During this time I’ve been putting a lot of work into my roleplay creation, Kate Beaumont, and how her avatar looks, moves, acts… you get the gist. Now, I finally feel that I can share Kate with the world and give you all a brief bio on her character!

Obviously Kate’s in Ravenclaw, so she’s quite clever and witty. She’s a first year, raised by a single mother, and is shy but faithful to the few friends she has. Feel free to start a conversation, Kate is very friendly to all who cross paths with her!

Next… surprise! Meet Rose Clarke, a.k.a. my friend Ivalyce Mapochi!

Isn’t she adorable? We’re like twins! <3 Kate and Rose will be wandering the castle a lot together, so look out for us! ;) Hope to see everyone wandering the castle in the near future!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Patriarch

{Patriarch}

Ah, patriarch – such a rich, royal color, if I do say so myself. I had an urge to wear something modern but classy this week, and this dress is perfect. Also, have you ever noticed how well purple goes with red hair? All those redheads out there are lucky ducks! I’m glad I have SL to express my inner fire. ;-)

I also have been loving this hairstyle this week; if you haven’t already noticed, I wore it in my summer Seasons Hunt post {here}. It’s so carefree and cute, I adore it! Elikapeka Tiramisu always does a wonderful job at creating any hair our SL heads desire.

All right, my weekly ramble is over. Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
