MY MODELLING FAREWELL
Yesterday, once and for all, I finally decided to hang up my modelling career in Second Life. I have been semi-retired for a long time now, always still have one foot inside the door occasionally doing shows, magazine prints and vendor ads for friends. I just cant see myself doing shows anymore and even doing magazine prints and vendor pictures seems like a chore. The fun and excitement is no longer there and for better or worse, the Second Life Fashion Industry is much different now.
As I left my agencies and designer groups one by one, I was filled with bittersweet emotions. I can honestly say that I’ve had the time of my life. Though it was full of UPS and DOWNS, I’ve had very little regrets and I have always been true to myself. I’ve met a lot of wonderful friends from around the world; some I would call family which taught me love, kindness and acceptance. I’ve met enemies as well which taught me to be brave, strong and to stand up for myself and those I love. I have always been shy and quiet in RL but being a model in Second Life taught me confidence, self-respect and perseverance. It also taught me an important lesson: All the awards and supertags, all the VIP titles and Elite memberships, all the exclusive invites to events, etc… absolutely DOES NOT MATTER in the end. I have been a member of many top agencies and designer groups, been honored with many awards and magazine cover features and there was a time when I was winning every contest I entered (or at least top3) but you know what? In 10-20 years time, no one will remember or care. I believe what matters are the lasting friendships we’ve made that transcends into real life. How you treat people matters because they will always remember kindness even in a virtual world. What matters the most are the people I’ve met all over the world.
I want to thank everyone who had supported my SL modelling career and gave me chances and opportunities. Thank you for believing in me and helping me accomplished all my dreams and goals. Thank you to every single one of my modelling and magazine agencies and designer groups that I’ve had the honor and pleasure to be part of. There are so many people to mention but you know who all of you are. With all my heart and sincerity, I can’t thank you enough and I wish you all love and success in both lives.
I will still be in Second Life from time to time but behind the scenes focusing on artistic projects and magazine articles. You need a model? This old fart is retired. LOL :p
LOVE TO DECORATE – The Magazine
LTD: ON THE SHELF
When Editorial Clarity told me that he is publishing a magazine, I told him that I would love to have a column in it. I have written in several Second Life Magazines before and I was expecting him to say, “YES, I would love to have you.”. But I was sadly mistaken. lol. He said, “You look pretty and you can style a great avatar but you can’t decorate.” WELL!!! Obviously, my hubby don’t know me very well. So, I set out a plan to wow him with the amazing interior designer in me. :p
I absolutely LOVE finding interesting, cute, amazing little items in Second Life. The more unique, the better. I know there are a lot of amazing, talented and imaginative content creators out there and I feel it is my duty to collect and appreciate what they make. These little things I feel is what makes a house a home. What we display in our homes can tell who we are, where we’ve been and sometimes where we are headed in life. Each little items we showcased tell a lot about our personality, dreams and goals.
So, after many weeks of campaigning, Editorial Clarity finally gave in and let me have my own column. In the JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2014 ISSUE of LTD Magazine, I am sharing several items that I absolutely love in Second Life. I feel they are “must haves” in any house guaranteed to put a smile on your face and help make your living abode a home. Each issue will be a different style focus, but I hope you enjoyed this one! Next issue will be focused on Toys/Dolls/Plushed. If you think you have a new item that may fit the theme, let me know and it could be featured ON THE SHELF.
Below, are all the landmarks you need to get any one of these items and add them to your shelf!
