Astralia has released the boat every girly girl needs this round of THE ARCADE and I’m thinking I might just need a little vacation on the mighty Linden seas this week to celebrate. It comes complete with a bedroom so what else do I really need? Continue reading →
I like Smoke on the Water Fire in the Air by Shyralei. The only bold colors are the red of her eyes and lips, everything else is blacks and grays with a hint of blue that adds a chill. The smoke adds an aura of mystery. There are the 45° black lines which are called sinister diagonals because they create a sense of foreboding, of loss. it’s an emotionally evocative picture.
Take Me Somewhere Nice by Mr. Munro
I like Take Me Somewhere Nice by Mr. Munro. It’s a great example of how window lighting can add emotional impact to a photo. The composition is good. Following the rule of thirds, the couple is placed so they are centered on a vertical line one-third from the right. As much of her is to the right of that line as he is to the left. Her head is one-third from the top and the tabletop he rests his head on is one third from the bottom. Continue reading →
The age old conversation about absurd requirements for bloggers never seems to end. I was having a conversation with my girl Sasy and we were once again clucking about the weird measures and expectations people seem to be obsessed with.
The other side of the conversation also seems to be that everyone and their brother thinks they can blog because it’s easy and free stuff, at least that’s the tagline. Of course if you ever blogged for any amount of time, you’d know that isn’t the case. It’s work, it’s a commitment and it actually take some effort. Continue reading →

I like Station Approach by Lily Lovelace. This seems like beginning of one of those old black and white movies. Everything is of that time and place, the vintage cut of the dress, the floral fabric, the stack heels, her hair style, the suitcases, and the train. Black and white only adds to that vintage feeling. Do you think she might be going home for a holiday? The floral dress suggest happy anticipation. There’s a present tucked into her tote, the only modern looking element. Of course, if it were a movie, someone would disappear from the train and she would solve the murder before arrival…without even mussing her hair. Meanwhile, the composition places her exactly by the rule of fifths. The bottom of the train car is also two-fifths from the bottom, a sort of horizon. Continue reading →
When Belleza releases a new skin it’s always been a reason for me to take note. I’ve been a fan a long time of the elegant and understated looks offered by this brand. Elegant without being overpowering, Erin is another one in the WIN column from Belleza in my opinion. Continue reading →
