For the Goddess Too Well Known
Elsa Gidlow

I have robbed the garrulous streets,
Thieved a fair girl from their blight,
I have stolen her for a sacrifice
That I shall make to this night.

I have brought her, laughing,
To my quietly dreaming garden.
For what will be done there
I ask no man pardon.

I brush the rouge from her cheeks,
Clean the black kohl from the rims
Of her eyes; loose her hair;
Uncover the glimmering, shy limbs.

I break wild roses, scatter them over her.
The thorns between us sting like love’s pain.
Her flesh, bitter and salt to my tongue,
I taste with endless kisses and taste again.

At dawn I leave her
Asleep in my wakening garden.
(For what was done there
I ask no man pardon.)

I’ve taken several photos of this very pretty picnic tent that is posed for two women to enjoy. The lovely Magenta DeVinna agreed to pose with me much to my delight! I’ve had a plurk crush on her for years and she is just one of the most lovely ladies in Second Life, and gorgeous too!

Magenta – from Glam Affair for the Seasons Story

1mag

A pre-release of Magenta from Glam Affair is here (available on January 10th for the Seasons Story).

This is one of my favorite Glam Affair skins to date because of these shimmery lips and because it’s named after one of my favorite bloggers Magenta Devinna.

There are six makeups in the tone that is being released is a new tone called Asia which to me is like the perfect balance of Europa and America. I really love this tone and I hope there is more of it to come.

One last thing about this skin is that it comes with cheeks, nose and lip layers. I took one of the tones and added some of the layers to the skin and you can really sort of customize it or dress the lips down if you wish.

I am also wearing new Clawtooth Hair for Collabor88 in “Female Trouble” and also from Collabor88 I am wearing a new necklace from Glam Affair.

My eyes are the new promise eyes from Ikon at Fameshed.

Glam Affair’s – Cleo Skin in the America Tone

Glam Affair is by far my favorite skin maker on the grid, and I know that is a very strong statement but – well, they just are. I feel like these skins that Aida Ewing makes just fit me. I’ve had a love affair with them for several years now and as they have evolved they keep getting better and better to me. Sure, I like other skins and I wear them from time to time of course but I always come back to Glam Affair.

This newest skin, Cleo is beautiful. I love the mouth, the nose, the eyes.. and all of the options! This skin has a ton of options along with that you can wear and customize to make it really “you”. It comes with three different noses, three different lip gloss options, three different freckle options, two different eyelash tattoo layers to make your eyes just “pop”. I’ve tried a few of them in the photo below – mixing and matching and well they are subtle differences but its fun to play around with them and find the one most “you”. For the eyebrow lovers, the red brows that I am wearing are option “f”. There are five different colors of brow for you to choose between.

Personally, I like adding all of the freckles on with the regular nose and lip gloss option two. But, if you demo the skin play around.. it’s really a great idea. The skin has twelve different make ups and there really is something for everyone. My favorite ones are the way Glam Affair does the red lips, I also love smokey eyes too on some of them. There are also some make ups that are more bold and fun too.

This skin should be out soon, not exactly sure when but I’d check in the next day or so. You can always join the in world group for Glam Affair to be up on the latest information. To see a different review of the skin, Magenta DeVinna of the blog Not quite pink here: http://www.notquitepink.com/and-along-came-cleo/ did a fantastic job of reviewing it, and in a different tone too!

I am also wearing new hair from Exile (love the new hud), and my sweater is from Erratic and my eyes are from Ikon. My ears are from Mandala.

Some of my favorite blogs and bloggers..

Yesterday, Gogo asked What are your top 10 favorite SL blogs? Honestly I read a lot of blogs but of course we all have our own personal preferences.

This is my list in no particular order and I’ll give a reason for each:

Marleen Vaughan of Coffeesmoke: I love this girl, she is the reason that I even started blogging in SL. She invited me to be a part of Coffeesmoke and I was for almost two years before branching off to my own blog. Her posts are funny, real and non contrived. Her writing is top notch and I’ve laughed out loud many times. Also she started another blog called the Concerned Bloggers Association which is worth a look. She also has a shop called Vaughan’s House of Curiosities which is visionary, quirky and fun.

Caelan Hancroft of Simply Stylish Cae inspires me with her adorable face, curvy body and and well thought out photography. Her outfit combinations are amazing.

Grazia Horwitz of GraziaSL.Com I’ve followed this blog for a long time. Grazia to me is an icon in the SL Fashion community. She makes brilliant and sometimes daring style choices but she is flawless. Everything she picks goes perfectly together.

Strawberry Singh of StrawberrySingh.com Berry is awesome sauce. Just look at her blog and you can see why. She is a goddess, untouchable seemingly at first but actually refreshingly down to earth with a very sweet personality. I love her tutorials and windlights.

Luna Jubilee of Luna Jubilee.com This is another blog that I’ve followed for a long time. She has the amazing windlights for download too, blogger boot camp tutorials, and she started the very successful 52 weeks of color blogger challenge. Luna is a sweet, funny and wonderful person the times I’ve been lucky enough to talk with her or hang out in world and her blog is a reflection of that.

Gogolita of Juicybomb.com I love Gogo’s blog because she writes with integrity and she styles herself in some of the most adorable finds from around SL that I probably would not have been aware of without her. I appreciate her blog because she is honest, colorful and juicy like a fresh peach!

It’s only fashion is a collaboration blog of some of the best bloggers in Second life. My favorite being the ever wise and stylish Cajsa Lilliehook mixed with the fun and down to earth mother earth goddessness of Gidge Uriza.. there are many great bloggers on the It’s only fashion blog but I am partial to the both of them and over all it makes for a diverse blog with many tutorials and solid fashion advice.

Annan Adored of Interstyle Fashion. I don’t know her at all aside from finding her on flickr one day but she could be my baby’s momma.. maybe? Seriously her images are gorgeous and I love the way she puts together a photo. Her windlight settings available for download are great too.

Free*Style: I could not make a list like this without including probably the first second life blog that I’ve ever read. Free*Style is my favorite “freebie” blog and mostly like the first that I can remember reading. This blog helped me through my much more noobish days and this blog to me is top quality and worth a read for anyone from the basic new SL user to even the most advanced as there is always something new to learn.


Vaki Zenovka
of Insert Funny name here: She maybe blogs once or twice a month now but when she does its well worth it. Her images are stunning, evocative and eloquent. Her writing to go along with her images is equally as amazing. A very impressive blog, indeed.

Other blogs that I love: Not Quite Pink by Magenta Devinna whom I simply adore, Bouncer Criss of Pixel Phasion 4 Men has a wonderful Mens blog, Lysie Aristocrat of Barbie Does Sl and Lauren Minuet of Flirting with Fashion are all blogs that I love to read as well.

Now this list has variations here and there but don’t get me wrong I appreciate all of the awesome bloggers in SL but these are ones that I’ve chosen because I’ve either followed them for a long time or because I feel there are currently my favorites. So who are yours?
