The latest Drax Files by Draxtor Despres is out and it features my hubby, Editorial Clarity.
Watch how Edi started out as well as his plans for LTD Magazine and Interior Designs.

I am in the video as well and I am honestly terrified and very hesitant to do it.
I have always been very private and have avoided posting any RL pictures of myself.
I am very self-conscious of my looks and have a self-image problem so this was very hard for me to do, but Draxtor was very friendly and professional which made it easier. He is the best at what he does and he did an amazing job with the video.

The video also tells the story of how Editorial Clarity and I met and fell in love.
I agreed to do this video because I want everyone to know that LOVE IS POSSIBLE, even in a virtual world. Many people have doubted us and so many things were always in the way, but we have made it work despite of the distance and the obstacles. We are planning on getting married in Real life and will be living together in Chicago. <3

<3 BELIEVE in LOVE. <3

The Drax Files: Virtual Chemistry

Virtual Chemistry

It is really amazing to me how Second Life can be used in a variety of ways including as a teaching tool in classrooms. I wished Second Life was used in all my classes when I was back in school. I would probably love learning and do my homework more. Video and Interview by Draxtor Depres and I can see a brief segment of the video shot at Rico’s Tea House. Yay. <3

OMG, It’s Torley Linden!

OMG, It’s Torley Linden!

We are so honored Torley Linden visited our home and Rico’s Tea House. As you can see, Edi is like awed, shocked and captured in his fan  girl moment. Edi vowed to do two things. This day is now declared Torley Linden Day on our land in honor of his visit and we are going to have a plaque made with two foot prints saying ”Torley Stood here” and put it in the floor. Hehe! Torley took some pics of the sim and they are awesome. Check his Flickr. https://www.flickr.com/photos/torley. Last week, we got a tip in the tip jar from Guy Linden in the tea house. :D Yay.

Thank you to everyone who came and visited Rico’s Tea House. We are overjoyed and floored with the warm compliments and support. Everyone is welcome and we hope you come and visit us again. Go “like” us on the SL Destination Guide Page. Ty. <3

My Modelling Farewell

Snapshot_001MY 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
