Wonderful Winter...As Shown By Eden Valley High's "Fashion 101" Class Style Challenge Winners!

Sooo, Cruzio and I recently started teaching at SL's Eden Valley High School. "Fashion 101"...A quick course in the basics of styling, blogging, and most importantly confidence. We set out to share with these teens a little of what we have gained from years in the Fashion Industry. However, what they have taught us has far exceeded all our expectations! These kids have come to every class, paid attention, and every week they have blown us away with their adorable personalities and awesome styling! This "Style Challenge" was to create a winter look, and write both a blog post and style card. Their incentive was the "Top 3" students would have Cruzio shoot a photo and their posts & credits would be published. Choosing just 3 turned out to be an impossibility, as so many of them rocked this challenge...Soooo, now I proudly present the "Top 7"! We would like to thank all our "Fashion 101" students for making this term so wonderful! (All Photos by the talented & awesome Cruz Quinnell...TYYY!)

     Cady Gertrude Cupcake Vendetta (cupcakecady Resident):
Living there was like a never ending nightmare - in that place between your fingers was my only home and now it's shattered. All was lost in the fragmented pieces of my heart that were laid out like broken daggers on the floor. I loved you. It couldn't be helped. It couldn't be captured. It was just a moment ever fleeting into the darkening skies, bringing coldness and nothingness to the places we once laid and watched the stars dance.

he snow may be falling and skies may be grey, but winter doesn't have to be bleak. Fortunately, there are many creative designers in SL who are working hard to guarantee that the roasting chestnuts won't be the only things sizzling this season. From Mutresse comes traditional warm woolen gloves with a colour change HUD to match your favourite winter wear. Hucci booties flash a glimpse of your latest nail polish while keeping your tootsies snug and safe. Warm jersey leggings from Tee*fy can be worn anytime, anywhere, and the Bubblegum Tree's poncho adds just the right amount of covering. I'm loving the change to switch up the dull blues and greys for some bright colours and more than a touch of sweetness.

Our House, Is A Very, Very, Very Fine House!

I have had many homes in my 5 years in SL, but the Willoby Ranch Home from BellaRose Furniture & Homes is by far my favorite! I love everything about it...The realistic hardwood floors, the amazing textured walls which give them depth, and the incredible detail that shows how this build was really a labor of love. All of Bella's creations are stunning. From the beautifully crafted homes, gorgeous furnishings, and she even has  so many "bits and bobs" to complete every surface...Truly something for even the most distinguished can be found at  BellaRose Furniture & Homes.

Summer Sunday Brunch with *~Aphrodite~*

I want you all to know as soon as I saw the "Summer Joy" brunch set from *~Aphrodite~*, I knew I needed to have it! Seriously, I saw the notice drop and within 2 minutes I was at the store in jammies with no hair on, sitting in a chair, eating bruschetta. I am so impressed with every piece of this set...The chairs and table textures are so detailed, the food looks so delicious that I now have a craving for deviled And there's much more! When you sit on one of the chairs, you have choices to eat and drink. Once you choose what you would like to eat or drink, it appears in you hands with proper utensils! Then when your done it disappears. How cool is that?! Also what every great host/ hostess needs to put on an amazing gathering is a serving tray. Once again *~Aphrodite~* has risen to that! Check out the "Exclusive Blends" tea tray in my hand, which comes complete with "waiter" animation. Again, the level of detail is absolutely beautiful. I really cant say enough great things about this Summer Joy brunch set, and the tea tray. I shall conclude with saying, a picture may be worth a thousand words...but you really need to visit the store in world! A must have for any garden party, and a perfect gift for the special "Mom" in your life. In fact I'm inviting my Mom over for a Mother's Day Brunch today. Special thank you to my hubby, Cruz for taking such lovely pictures <3!

*~Aphrodite~*-Summer Joy Brunch Set-Includes: 2 chairs, table w/ tablecloth, and all the food.
