In A Year

Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the start of my blog!  I can proudly say that 310 posts later I am still going strong, and loving every single moment of this creative little adventure!  When I started a year ago, I honestly expected to last a week or two, get bored, and carry on to a new project.  Here I am though!  Still pestering you all with my endless ramblings, favorite things, and countless photos!

I can say that the last year has been quite a learning experience for me.  I’ve learned not only countless things to put towards my photography pursuits, but I’ve also learned a lot about other people, the Second Life community as a whole, and most of all myself.  I have certainly grown, changed, and hopefully matured in quite a few ways this past year.  I would have never thought that those were things I would have achieved from a silly little Second Life blog.

I hope that my blog has been resourceful and fun for you to read.  I am really excited for what this next year of blogging brings my way.  Looking back it’s fun to see how I’ve improved, grown, and changed.  It’s quite remarkable how different things are now, compared to a year ago.  It will be fun to see what changes and improvements come my way in this next 365 days.

Thanks so much for reading and following my blog.  I am not entirely sure what motivates you to do it, but I am incredibly appreciative.  I’ve met a lot of really wonderful people this past year, and can’t wait to meet more in the future.

Love,

Harlow

Frolic

I don’t know about y’all, but spring makes me wanna put on girly clothing and frolic around outside.  The new colors, life springing into action, and the warmer temperatures, just seem to bring out the best in everyone and everything.

I felt extra girly when I put on this adorable dress from Jack Spoon today.  The beautifully done dress is available at Fashionably Late this week.  The skirt sits up a bit higher on your hips than a normal skirt does, which gives the entire ensemble a boost of playful innocence.

I paired the dress with a really cute pair of shoes from KAO.  They have a handful of color options available for purchase, and I snatched up the white ones because I think i’ll be able to match them with a lot more outfits this season.  The little ties around the ankles are perfect, and you have resize options available!

This is the second time in my blog i’ve had a chance to use the En Pointe Ballet pose set from Adorkable Poses.  I really think this set is one of my favorites they have released.  It’s so playful and carefree and brings a lot of movement to your photos.

I hope wherever you are in the world your weather is as beautiful as it is here in the Southern USA! Have a great Thursday!

If Walls Could Talk

Just recently my good friend Kat Terrawyng started up a fun little business of doing wall quotes for resident’s homes.  She’s off to an absolutely fantastic start, and this quote I am standing next to above is one of the many great pieces of word art that she has for sale at her new store If Walls Could Talk.  You can find her adorable little shop on the Mudhoney sim or also in her store on marketplace.  If you are looking for a little boost of artistic inspiration, the store is an absolutely perfect find!

On another note, I have a new favorite item.  Oh yes. I do.  This jacket/tube top mesh combo from coldLogic is perfect in absolutely every way.  The texture detail, the shape, the sizing. PERFECT.  I could not be happier.  It comes with various options as well.  I can wear the tube without the jacket, or the jacket without the tube, or both at the same time.  It’s so versatile and well made.  I am beyond impressed. This was a find I picked up at the March Mesh Madness event.

Lastly, while I wear TRUTH hair all the time I often times don’t bother to comment on it.  Not sure why this is…probably because we all know how truly fabulous the hair is.  I am really loving this new release.  It’s got a rock star quality to it, and it’s unique in every way.  I think it’s quickly becoming one of my favorites!

Lastly, I wanted to mention that I got the opportunity to be interviewed by the lovely Keira Seerose over at Chic Style Guide.  The interview is quite candid, and a little bit funny, so if you are bored and looking for a light hearted read, there you have it!  Hope you all have a great Wednesday!

BLOG POLL: Denim Jeans! How Many Pairs?

Denim jeans are such a staple not only in our Second Lives but especially our real lives.  As I type this, I am wearing my absolute favorite pair of jeans.  (They are from Old Navy and they are the best!)  I started getting curious about how many pairs of jeans people own in Second Life.  Nearly all clothing designers put out standard pairs of denim jeans.  They come in various hues of denim, tons of styles, some ripped, some skinny, some flared… The list is near endless.

How many pairs of generic denim jeans do you own in Second Life? Also, I would absolutely LOVE if you commented on this post and told us where your favorite jeans are from!

Pups & Pearls

Good morning and Happy Monday!  I’ve got quite a bit to tell you about today and I don’t even know where to begin…Hmm…

Let’s start with the Fashion for Life event taking place right now.  The sims are now open, and now if your chance to join in against the fight on Cancer by doing what we all do best…shopping!  The event takes place from March 10th – 20th.  My beautiful Vintage Key Necklace from Caroline’s Jewelry is available at this event.  Caroline has made a few variety of this necklace including a strand of black pearls as well.  All the variations are lovely, and we all know how I feel about key necklaces.  They are my FAVORITE! Make sure y’all check out the event, and support this event for a worthwhile cause.

Another event taking place that I mentioned in a previous post a few days ago is the new round at Collabor88.  This is by far one of the best rounds we have seen.  My top is from u.f.o. and it’s available in a few colors during the month long event for a very reasonable price.

Lastly today, I want to point out Darla, my adorable new mesh Chihuahua.  Isn’t she cute?  She comes in two versions.  The other version features a very cute sweater for Darla to wear.  Darla can be found at the store Sweet Distractions, and is also available on marketplace.  The dog comes with a hold & petting animation which I’m using above.

Have a great start to your week! <3
