“He Believes In Me”

While he lays sleeping…
I stay out late at night and play my songs
And sometimes all the nights can be so long
And it’s good when I finally make it home, all alone
While he lays dreaming…
I try to get undressed without the light
And quietly he says how was your night
And I come to him and say
It was all right, and I hold him tightAnd he believes in me
I’ll never know just what he sees in me
I told him someday if he was my guy
I could change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But he has faith in me
And so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night
If my song is right
I can find a way…

guitarWhile he lays waiting,
I stumble to the kitchen for a bite
And I see my old guitar in the night
Just waiting for me like a secret friend
And there’s no end while he lays crying
I fumble with a melody or two
And I’m torn between the things that I should do
And he says to wake him up when I am through
God his love is true

And he believes in me
I’ll never know just what he sees in me
I told him someday if he was my guy
I could change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But he has faith in me
And so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night
If my song is right
I can find a way
While he waits
While he waits
For me

FASHION: Strip’d Fashion -Burkley Jacket-

The Burkley jacket is a brand new release for men from Strip’d Fashion. It is MESH and totally amazing because it comes with a HUD that lets you change the color of the jacket, shirt and tie into many different combinations to create the perfect look you want to achieve. It can be used for formal as well as casual, depending on the combination you want to create. Best of all, it is very affordable.

RUNNING INTO YOU: The world is full of millions of people from different countries with their own cultures and languages. It is just amazing to me how people meet especially in a Virtual World called Second Life. I met my partner in SL and RL here and he lives across the Atlantic Ocean from me. I probably would never have met him if it weren’t for Second Life. What is even more amazing is that we fell in love and will be living together this summer in real life.

Edi, running into you back in 2009 when we met for the very first time was a very special day I’ll never forget. I heard your voice on the stream and I messaged you (which I never do btw) and asked you..”Is that your voice on the stream? Sounds very sexy.” Ever since then, you were stalking me until I finally married you. ;p

The chance of meeting someone and falling in love is very rare, whether in SL or RL. It is really a miracle that LOVE HAPPENS even in a virtual game. When you find love, treasure it and fight for it cuz once you lose it, you might never get it back. Never let anyone devalue what you have. Love is never a game even in a Virtual World. We are human beings behind the avatars and we all have feelings. I wish you all love and happiness. May you find your special someone. <3

Our son Sachy asked us to model this latest release “Burkley” for a Vendor Ad for Strip’d Fashions. The idea behind it is Edi and I are two store front MANnequins on display in a posh high end store. I think it turned out very well. Thanks Sachy.

I’m going to make a change for once in my life.
It’s gonna feel real good… Gonna make a difference, gonna make it right.
As I turned up the collar on my favorite winter coat, this wind is blowin’ my mind.
I see the kids in the street with not enough to eat. Who am I to be blind, pretending not to see their need?

A summer’s disregard, a broken bottle top and one man’s soul.
They follow each other on the wind ya know? ‘Cause they got nowhere to go, that’s why I want you to know. I’m starting with the man in the mirror. I’m asking him to change his ways. And no message could have been any clearer. If you wanna make the world a better place,
Take a look at yourself and then make a change.

There was a time in my SLife when all I did was live and breathe SL fashion and modeling. It was always about which awards and contests to win next, what agencies to get in, and which designers to work for, etc… Though I am extremely shy and reserved, I think I did pretty well and I have achieved all that I wanted to do. During my modeling journey, I had lost plenty of friends, made a few enemies and been through plenty of Ups & Downs but through it all, I was true to myself, I stood up for what I believed in and I did it my way without stepping on others back.

One day I woke up…

I realized that I had put so much importance and revolved my life on something that most likely won’t matter 10 years from now. Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love fashion and I love being able to express my fashion and artistic style in Second Life, but I think the obsession and constant need for attention and obtaining these “awards/agencies” are just too much and not healthy. It makes me sad how people act in SL. Some “important” people act like “GODS” and think they can look down and control others just because they gained some success in a Virtual World.  Some resort to ass kissing, back stabbing, lying, cheating, cyber bullying and other childish behavior to get some attention and notoriety. I ask you…Is it worth it? Does it make you feel great and superior to treat other people badly? You might ask….Who the hell am I to judge? I will be the first to tell you that I am NOBODY. I am just another human being behind an avatar who has feelings and gets lonely sometimes, just like you and everyone else. And I am not judging, I’m just voicing my opinion through my experiences. I deeply believe in Karma and I will treat people as how they treat others no matter how “delusional” they might be about their SL importance.

Now enough of the negativity…. lol. I’m not completely emo, I promise. The best part of the SL Fashion World for me is the many wonderful friends I’ve met. There are truly many beautiful and kind people out there and I have the honor to call them my friends and mentors. They have given me a lot of opportunities to grow, supported me through everything and loved me for who I am. You all know who you are and I sincerely Thank you for being beautiful inside and out. My awesome hubby, Editorial Clarity and I have slowly moved away from SL Fashion these past few months though we both know fashion is part of us. We will continue to produce The Fashion Teller books as a means to express our fashion and artistic sides, and I will probably model from time to time I’m sure. I’ve tried to retire completely so many times but a little tiny voice is always calling me back especially when I am inspired. LOL. So….I guess I am semi-retied. ;p

Best Wishes to Everyone in Both Lives.
