Well we have finally reached the end... today is the last day for the Stylista Festival. It has been an incredible, fun and inspiring few weeks. We have had so much fun with great live music, spectacular fashion shows and somebrilliant events. Unfortunately though, all good things must come to an end and we have one last day of fun filled things to end this baby with a bang! This will be the party to end all parties! So come on down just follow the link.

THE LAST DAY LIMO!

Starting from 3pm SLT, we have Mankind Tracer playing live for you. Harper Messmer starts playing at 4pm and believe me you do not want to miss these two sensational musicians. Bring a friend and hit the dance floor, or two friends.....we don't mind! The party goes on with Cylindrian Rutabaga at 7pm... and then a DJ from 8pm-10pm. We really want this party to go off, so please TP those friends in!

Something else that might be of interest is that on the last day there will be a gift giver. That's right a gift giver that is giving away gifts for just being there to show your support. It will be giving out gifts worth up to L$8000 every 2 and a half minutes!
These gifts are great free gifts! Clearly if some are valued at L$8000! So yet another reason to come down and enjoy the music and you might just walk away with a gift valued at L$8000!

The amazing One-Of-A-Kind auction finishes at 9pm! These creations which include everything from gowns, jewellery to even skins are by the ever so talented designers;

The Stylista Festival has been an amazing collaboration of music and fashion, spanning nearly three weeks in one of the most beautiful structures on Second Life, the Patch Thibaud Auditorium. It has featured over 50 of Second Life's fine live artists, over a dozenDJ's , many fashion shows, a one-of-a-kind design auction, a Celebrity Date Auction hosted by Studio Red and various parties and activities in between it all.

This incredible festival has been to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. 100% of all sales and donations will go to the foundation. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of America is an inspiring charity so every dollar we can raise to help is fantastic and will make a huge difference. So please come out on the last day and help make one more wish possible for a child with a life threatening illness.

Every $L counts and lets make this last day, the most incredible event! Dig deep and lets do all we can! Thank you to everyone in advance!

Can I go buy some shoes now? Please!

I have not done an update lately of everything I have been doing and I apologize. I have been crazy busy and just forgot all about it. I think I have earned myself some shoe shopping, well hold on shopping in general.

One shop I am off to today is Stiletto Moody's shop. AVENUE Magazine is delivering to you in a sumptuous supplement at the launch where Stiletto Moody will be revealing the revolutionary new line of shoes for women which is going to alter the way women walk and view their feet. Stiletto Moody bares it all with this ingenious new line called BARE. Watch AVENUE for the exclusive supplement at 5pm on 16 Dec SLT. In the meantime, here is a sneak peaks of these incredible shoes. Stiletto Moody BARE ©, launch is Tuesday 16th of December at 5pm. This is for Group members only! The Stiletto Moody BARE © system offers a myriad of configurable options through its scripting technology and built in menu including:

- Color matching to any avatar skin.
- Ankle resizing to avatar shapes.
- A full range of nail polishes on every foot.
- Toe rings options for both feet.
- ColorSet fatpacks.
- Changing metal colors where t he shoes have buckles.
- Heel click sounds, a sexy walk and bling where appropriate.
- Powerful menu to control all features.

The Launch is accompanied by 40%-off end-of-year sale! So make sure you get in there to have a look and grab some shoes at 40%! You must be a group member to get the discount.

So.. a little while I posted a blog about the Modavia first call back. I thought that I had better give you an update, and say that I didn't make it further than the first call back. I am so proud to have made it to even the first call back. Don't get me wrong, rejection is difficult and it is something we all have to deal with in our life, let alone our Second Life. We pick ourselves off, brush ourselves down and carry on. I am still in shock that I even made it to the first call back to be honest. To walk with the amazing models that w ere at the casting call is such an honor. I'm not sure who made it and who didn't, but congratulations to all of the models who entered. Can not wait to see the new Modavia directory when it comes out.

I entered the BESTYLE Calendar 2009 competition at the start of December. I didn't think I had a chance in hell of even getting to the first call back on this as well. I was stunned when the list was sent out and my name was on it, with some of the most beautiful, talented and skilled models in Second Life. If you are wondering what this competition is, it's The Best of Italian Style Fashion Center, Bestyle Magazine, and the BeStar Fashion Club are looking for the 12 most beautiful models in SL to be featured on the 2009 BeStyle calendar.

Among all the models who submitted the application they will select a maximum of 30 candidates. The final selection will happen in two shows on December 18 and 19 2008. The models during the show will strut twice in two separate groups each day. The first time in a casual dress and the second time in a evening dress offered by the stylists of the Best of Italian. The jury will be made of stylists, journalists, fashion and beauty experts, and eventually the management of the Best of Italian. The 12 winners (6 each night) will be featured on the Best of Italian 2009 Calendar and will participate in the castings for the next Best of Italian Fashion Shows. So it is an amazing opportunity, and I can not wait to give it all I got. Congratulations to all the 30 fantastic models selected who are:

Mimmi Boa
Wenadrenia Soderstrom
Sharron Schuman
Gamp Lane
Sydney Nitely
Liane Martens
Lainee Baxter
Mia Sanchez
Rhi Rossini
Olyvia Zenovka
Agtaope Carter
Tiffany Dragonash

I also want to send out a big CONGRATULATIONS to the RUNWAY models of the year Payton Heron and Jonny Tobias! The awards ceremony was held on December 14th, 9am at the Patch Thibaud Auditorium. This award is a fantastic accomplishment as it stands for absolute professional achievement. So congratulations to you both :)


The Neiva Kumasi Super Model Contest, that I am currently doing is going really well. This week was a little intense but we got through it. We had to do out first Go- C challenge, which was nerve racking, I have never done a commercial before. All the girls were amazing and I now realise the competition is going to be fierce. We didn't find out right away who won, they let us know a few days later when they got us all together. I was so excited to find out that I won this weeks challenge and now an not able to be eliminated this week. YAY! I probably yelled a little hard into the microphone lol.. but I was so excited. Probably means I will go out next week, but oh well at least I won one challenge. We should find out who is eliminated this week, and you keep up with what is going on in the house and the competition by looking at the link below. Yes I am the one with the goofy Aussie accent lol.

The Stylista Festival is happening right now, and there is something happening every day. You can always check the blog for updates and to see what is going on. There are some amazing musicians performing and some incredible shows coming up. There are way to many events to mention so just keep looking at the blog.

Stylista Festival Blog

Some amazing photos are starting to appear on flickr as well. So they are well worth going to check out. I have to tell you about the surprise gifts though. Have you found the surprise gift boxes in the Stylista Festival Lobby yet? I am totally addicted to them and I think they make the perfect Christmas present to give to someone.You can buy a surprise gift for L$1000. Each surprise gift situated on the table in the center of the lobby is valued between L$195 to L$8000, so it is kind of like a lucky dip. You may get something worth less than L$1000 or you might be lucky and get something valued a heap more. What I like about it so much is that you are donating to a wonderful cause as 100% of sales from the surprise gifts goes to Make-A-Wish Foundation of America.Let me give you an idea of some of the designers and shops that have items you may be lucky enough to receive from the surprise gifts.

The surprise gift boxes are vanishing fast. More than half of them are gone! So hurry on into the lobby and grab one up for yourself, or give it to someone else as a present. Please remember, after you pay for your surprise gift to take it from the table. We don't want you missing out on your goodies! There are landmarks to all the stores and designers' shops that have donated to this fantastic cause. So if you like, grab a landmark as well. The amazing One-Of-A-Kind creations are there also and are still open for bidding as well as the limited edition items that are available for purchasing. So come on into the lobby and have a look.

Finally, a massive CONGRATULATIONS goes out to Mimmi Boa who was crowned Miss Virtual The Miss Virtual World 2009 representing Italy!

The pageant was held Saturday December 6th from 11 AM to 5 PM SLT by Frolic Mills of "The Best of SL". The event was viewed by a live audience of over two hundred avatars! It was presented by several judges, a dance troupe, and a cast of 18 models representing Australia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Spain, Sweden, UK, USA, and Venezuela. It was an amazing event and I can not wait for next year to watch it all again. Congratulations to all the amazing models and the organizers it was really a landmark event.

Congratulations Mimmi!

Have a great week everyone

MISS VIRTUAL WORLD 2009

Posted by Jennaa Loire | Posted in | Posted on 10:49 PM

In case you have been living in a hole for the last month on Second Life, I thought I better make a post about the Miss Virtual World 2009 that is happening tomorrow. 19 Amazing, talanted and beautifu contestants will be competing, for the title.

MISS VIRTUAL WORLD 2009
SATURDAY DEC 6TH
10:30 AM SLT
PLACE: PATCH THIBAUD AUDTORIUM

There are going to be over 40 never before seen couture dresses, The biggest 4 SIM, thats right 4 SIM theatre ever built in SL. Which is just stunning by the way, I peeked. Mankind Tracer will be there as well as Jonas Lunasea.

These gorgeous 19 contestants will compete for the crown of all crowns. I am so excited and nervous so I hate to image how the poor contestants are feeling. I thought seeing all these ladies are just so stunning I would do a brief description for each of them so you can get to know them a little better. I have to admit I am a little biased towards the gorgeous Chalice Carling due to the fact that she is an Aussie and she is one of the nicest people I have had the joy of coming across on SL. If it was not for her, I would not be the model I am today. So I will be in the crowd waving my little Aussie flag. I would also like to admit that I will be hoping for Tiffany Dragonash and ZoeAnastasia Aeon. These two amazing ladies taught me everything I know at EWING and I wish them the best of luck! They are truly amazing models.

Modavia - I have no nails left!

I had the most intense, petrifying, intimidating and amazing experience yesterday and I just wanted to write about it. So please excuse the following post as I rant and rave. As most models and people in the fashion industry on SL would know, yesterday was the Modavia first call back, for their fall casting. After submitting an application with photos and a very brief statement about your experience as a model, a certain amount of models were selected to attend a runway casting on November 30th at 12 noon.

Everyone was waiting and IM's were starting to fly back and forth on the Wednesday before if anyone had heard anything, anything at all. Had anyone got an invitation or a rejection? I logged onto SL on the Thursday morning and was very shocked, nervous and excited to receive my inventory offer and quickly dropped it on the ground to see what it was. To my utter joy I saw "You are invited to attend". I'm sure the people in the SIM where I dropped it where like what is that crazy person doing? As I run around the box to see what was written on it. I honestly did not even think I would make it to the first runway casting call, and was so excited that I did. 

Modavia are offering 5 supermodel positions and if I understand correctly 30 models will go through to the next runway casting on December 14th from yesterdays casting. When we find out who knows, but to me I am just so proud to have it made it this far.

I don't think that ever in my SL life, have I felt so nervous as when I teleported into the casting room. I assumed we would be doing it in small lots, like 15 models at a time, but oh no it was all at once. I have never been in a room with so many talented, stunning and "big time" models. I really felt like I should be sitting in the corner or peeking out from around the corner looking at them and taking notes. Hold on that kinda makes me sound weird, but I just felt like I didn't belong. 

I have only been modeling for nearly 7 months now, so to be in a room and walking the same runway as these incredible models was just overwhelming. It was great to see some models helping each other, giving tips and answering Questions. I think everyone was relieved when the beautiful Chalice Carling yelled out how she had just walked on the hole in the middle of the catwalk and it wasn't an actual hole and you couldn't fall in lol. I think everyone breathed a sigh of relief then and I know I was blowing a million kisses to her. 

On the other side I was shocked at how nasty some of the models can be, and how they didn't want to help anyone else but themselves. To me we are all in this together and I do understand that it is competitive and none of us like the rejection, but come on we all have to deal with it at some stage. To me, that does not stop us helping each other, being supportive and doing everything we can to make it the best it can be for everyone involved.

I just want to say that every model there did an amazing job! I left after my walk to try and cut down on the lag for the people who had to walk after me, but every model I did see walk did so well. I looked around the rooms a few times and saw some of the most beautiful and some "unique" avatars which was fantastic as I think that is what makes modeling so amazing on SL. 

I wish every model the best of luck, and I know who ever makes it to the next runway casting truly deserves it. You were all incredible and I have my fingers and toes crossed for you all. 
GOOD LUCK! 
Jennaa xoxo

I can not wait to see who wins this month all the models have been amazing and I know the awards night is going to be a blast!

I did some amazing shows this week, I was lucky enough to be asked to come back to EWING and walk with this months graduating students. Sunday October 23rd at 1pm the show happened at the runway pool at EWING. It was a great day and I have to admit I loved being back there. Luckily this time there was no griefer trying to push me into the pool, everything went relevantly smoothly. I am still trying to make lag my friend, but we seem to be having a few erm communication problems.  All the students did so well, and they seemed so much more relaxed than I was on my graduation day. Congratulations to the fellow graduates and watch out for these names people...

I all so did a show for GLANCE International which I am so thrilled to be a part of such an incredible agency. The show was showcasing the amazing designs of *FDL*.  I really have to say that *FDL* has some of the most detailed and amazing work I have seen on SL. The clothes are 18th Century and they have some divine wigs, gowns and ballgowns. This store is not only for women they have fantastic mens items as well.
 *FDL* is owned by Sanders Beaumont.
 
The "Seraphina" Dress shown to the left here, is just gorgeous in person. The fabric  is gold which has a floral pattern to it. The shoulders are like the wings of an angel as the silk wraps around them. This amazing dress comes with shoes  and an AO walk which can be switched off and on. Just by clicking the shoes. In addition to this you receive a ring (Lotus Petal) and a choker/collar which is totally resizeable with one click on the golden flower at the side.

I was lucky enough to wear this gorgeous dress as one of my outfits. I can not tell you how detailed this dress really is. It was stunning. 

If you are looking for 18th century items, I would head over to *FDL* for sure.

I started the Neiva Kumasi Super Model Contest this week, and you can already watch it on youtube if you are interested, following this link http://au.youtube.com/user/NkModeling

I will keep you updated as the show goes on, but you can also keep up with what is going on by visiting youtube. There are some beautiful models involved and some really colorful characters. So it should be very interesting to say the least. We get to live in the most amazing house and each week a contestant will be eliminated and go home. It's a little scary and we all have to use voice, so being the only Aussie I feel a little awkward. I will get there though hopefully. I am really looking forward to getting to know the other models better and doing some intense challenges together. 

I wish all the contestants the best of luck and I look forward to it all :)

The other massive news this week was that I attended a casting call this week for Starlight Events, which is an outstanding events company owned by RubyStarlight Writer. They were look for 25 regular models for shows that they will be doing for charity. I was so hoping to just even get a call back... and I did. I was so nervous walking as there were some really well known models there. I thought I did alright with my walk... but then afterwards I was called to walk back again. I immediately thought oh no I stuffed it. 

I held out hope for my friends that I knew were doing the call back and waited ever so patiently for the list. When I received it I nearly fell of my chair, I was so shocked to see I made the list and was now one of the 25 models. I am feeling so lucky to be even included in this group with these amazing models. I am so looking forward to working with them.

I will keep you updated to see how things go with the contests... and I have my fingers and toes crossed for everyone who entered the Modavia Casting Call. xoxoxo! Can't wait to see how makes that casting!

Have a great week everyone!

I found these fantastic bags this week, and had to share them. There are details on the cards of where I found them and price. They are worth checking out and adding them to your favorite outfits. I love the fact that some come with an AO you can use so they bag does not vanish into your clothes. There are also some fantastic AO's out there for a complete look with bags. With everything from standing, sitting and posing. Happy shopping!

At A GLANCE

What a slack blogger I have been, again! I really need to get my act together. I have been so busy and preoccupied that I totally forgot to write about all the terrific things that have happened this past week and a half. 

For starters I was called to a casting call for GLANCE International Agency, with the amazing and very talented Kurvy Rhode, can this lady walk a catwalk; I can only hope that one day I get half the talent in one foot as she has in her whole AV. The interview part was fantastic and I think I managed to answer all the questions she tossed up rather well, then she took me over to the catwalk. All the catwalks I have walked on so far have been a straight line, this baby was a square.. you heard me a square! I nearly died. I gave it my best shot, and my first attempt was a disaster. I got caught up on the wall and that was it. Second Attempt I walked around it with some ease, but I only posed once at the end. Third attempt was even better, and I managed to hit most of the pose spots. At this point I was saying "Just put it down to experience". Kurvy came up to me and started talking to me right after, as I was just trying to calm myself down. To my utter shock and joy I was accepted for the show and was offered a place at the agency. I can not be happier and more thrilled to be working with some very talented and creative individuals. 

I have already done my first show for GLANCE. It was called the "DIVINE SHOW". You can see the advertisement for it below to the right. It was a fantastic show, and I loved every moment of it. The models did an amazing job, the clothes were gorgeous and it just went like clockwork. The walk was intimidating at first, we were in pairs, ten pose spots, square shape and that many people. 


The show was held at The Grafton Mall and it was on Saturday, November 8th at 5pm SLT

The Grafton Mall hosts VoguE and DG Fashion main stores. VoguE is a brand presenting a bold clothing line for the smart women. The primwork is amazing! The store slogan is a fashion statement "Style with Attitude"! 

DG Fashion stands for Divine and Gorgeous. Designed by both Zalyn Bailey and DeanGrant Caproni, the store offers eye-catching, upscale fashion pieces for the party girl. Subtle and refined. 

In the top left hand corner of this blog you can see one of the outfits I wore for the show, it was gorgeous and I love it. It is from DG Fashion and is called "Brenna Gown". I think the gloves with the fur that come with the gown are a simple and elegant touch, that really complete the outfit.

Modeling DG Fashion and VoguE latest releases were modeled by Imani Enzo, Kurvy Rhode, Laila Schiman, Jennaa Loire, Tabata Jewell and SweetVicky Voom. Great job girls! I am so looking forward to doing more shows with GLANCE and these fantastic other models.

This week I was all so, so thrilled to see the UNCOVER magazine, be released. I was so happy to see Adonaira's photo on the cover and not just because it is of me lol, I think she is an amazing photographer who is filled to the brim with an amazing gift. "The Issue Event"  is a great read and well worth the time to pick up and have a look. You can pick up a copy in world, or you can go to the website. Congratulations to Ado on a fantastic interview! 

UNCOVER has a vision to Uncover the most interesting, beautiful people, places, events, and creations in Second Life. They really do strive to have high quality content. You can check out the UNCOVER website at http://www.sluncover.com

Congratulations to all involved with the publication and to Maryna Wind in particular.

I found out this week as well I have been selected for the Neiva Super Model Contest. Which is a little scary, luckily for me I have some of my modeling friends doing it as well. So it should be a blast! The competition is huge and sounds quiet difficult and intense. Basically the Grand Prize is...

*Employment with The Neiva Kumasi Modeling Agency.
*A 5 page photo spread in the Neiva Kumasi Magazine.
*$10,000L in linden cash.
*A starring role in a music video of the winner's choice.
*Acting role in C-Dep's upcoming SL Movie.

I will keep you updated as more details come to hand, and you can have a look on youtube for the clips. You can all have a lovely chuckle at my Aussie accent, as yes we have to use voice! I promise to try the amount of times I say mate.. well I'll try!

Well that is it for today, I will do a post tomorrow on some fantastic handbags I have found this week as I really want to share them with you. Have fun shopping till then xoxo.

 These are my three favorite shoes this week. There are details of the shoes and where they came from on the cards. Some of these shoes I found in my shopping trips, but the =DeLa*= boots, I saw at the parade at the weekend just gone. They look amazing on! Have fun shopping, and I hope you like these as much as I do.

New Fall Release from Paper Couture

Posted by Jennaa Loire | Posted in | Posted on 4:15 AM

I am madly in love with Paper Couture and I refuse to hide from the fact, so you can imagine my delight when I logged onto Second Life today to receive a group notice saying that Paper Couture's Fall Collection was now available in their store. My eyes lit up and my instant reaction was to head to the store straight away. 

First off all though I watched the video that was linked
 to in the group notice, and I have to say WOW! I love the creativity, it is unique, the colors everything. I fell more in love with Paper Couture than I possibly could have dreamt possible. For anyone interested here is the link to the simply stunning clip.



Now do not get me wrong, I understand there are quiet a few people out there, who can not stand Paper Couture and think that the Lu sisters have lost their marbles. Can we all recall the blog from http://poshpride.wordpress.com


Paper Couture = No Future, according to Posh Pride. Well I think they might be eating their words.  In particular how busy Paper Couture's shop was when I went there. The place was packed and not only were people buying the sensational jewellery but the outfits as well. Paper Couture is not about everyone being able to wear it, but in my opinion, fantastic sisters taking their creative genius to the grid. Their work is about art not about if it can be worn or not by everyone. Besides who says you can not wear it.. unwearable my goodness, I don't know what she was thinking saying that!

 Their textures, prim work and colors are amazing! in my opinion the Lu sisters are one of the most amazing things to hit the fashion world on Second Life and we are lucky to have them!

The thing I truly love about Paper Couture is that they are different, I am sorry but I love to wear something different and I would be more than happy to wear a Lu sister creation out that some outfit that every Sally, Jane and Sarah are wearing.



The Fall collection is my favourite of theirs so far, and I can not wait to wear it at every possible chance I get. I love the hats in particular that come with some of the outfits. You can see one from the "Turtle Dove" outfit at the top of the blog.. and I love the crystals. Anything with sparkle works for me. As you can probably tell birds is a major component and the feather textures are just amazing, take for example the picture just below. This is from the "Lush" Outfit.


There is all so a fantastic "Fall goodies" bag as you walk in the door, and this is filled with detailed, high quality items such as face masks, tights and wall art. A must to pick up. If you are one of these people who think Paper Couture's outfits are a little of the wall, remember they do have the most amazing jewellery, shoes, glasses and bags. *cough cough* which I own nearly all of them.

So in conclusion, I love the new Fall range and will be going back to pick up a few more items! I would really like to thank the Lu sisters for being the amazing artists they are, and providing me with the inspiration to keep being involved with the fashion industry on Second Life. Diversity is what makes the world go around!

Congratulations Paper Couture on a fantastic Fall collection!

PS. All the clothes, face masks and jewellery items from the photos in this post are from Paper Couture's new Fall Collection.

Amazing....

I have been a slack blogger I admit it, I have been busy doing so many things and I have not done nearly as much as I have wanted. So I apologize.

Well as I mentioned before I was accepted to undertake EWING model training, which to me was a fantastic privilege as some of the most amazing models have started at EWING and work as EWING models.

EWING Fashion Agency, otherwise known as EFA is an energetic and dynamic group, which was founded by business mogul and model Una Ewing. EFA was setup to develop, train and promote the careers of new and established models and fashion designers in Second Life. They are not a modeling agency. They are a fashion promotions agency. The agency however does have a collection of trusted and trained models that they use in their shows. Let me tell you these models that EFA has, are amazing. The skill and dedication they display is inspiring. If you would like to check out the EFA blog you can click the link on the right side of my page, or just follow this link 


It was a full on course, but I really really feel it has prepared me for what lies ahead as a professional model on Second Life. The staff were so helpful, let alone so nice. They answered any questions we had and 

made themselves available whenever we needed to talk to them. ZoeAnastasia Aeon was my teacher and I really owe her so much, she was amazing and I don't think she knows how much she helped me. Thank you so much Zoe. I really found these classes taught me more than I could ever had hoped. I feel so much better prepared and aware of what it takes to me a model on Second Life. I really do not think that  great percentage of users of Second Life realize what it takes to be a model, let alone walk the runway. I think that is another blog though.

We had a photo shoot as part of our classes, and here is mine. The theme was "Vintage" which I have to say is one of my favourite things to wear. I decided to wear a P.C design, but my goodness I own nearly the whole range... which one lol.  I think the photo is fantastic!


Then there was graduation, oh my goodness graduation. What an experience! Graduation was held on Oct 26th at 1pm SLT. We had to model one of the each of the following, casual, swimwear, smart business, lingerie/loungewear and evening formal. We did not find out till we arrived for graduation om the day if we were actually graduating or not, which was a little scary and a big relief when we found out we all were. The ladies that I did the show with were fantastic and we all helped each other out, which I thought was the best thing. I really found that the friends I have made through my modeling experiences so far is what keeps me coming back for more.

Everything went fine with graduation till at my third walk, a grief er appeared on the catwalk with me, I remained calmed and had a little giggle to myself as a man with goggles started darting towards me rapidly. I stopped and posed and remained calm, while he tried to knock me into the pool that surrounded the runway. I waited till he hit the side and then I calmly walked around him and continued off the runway. I had a good laugh to myself as soon as I got backstage, but was glad that I remained composed on the runway and did not run off or start yelling explicits at him. Tiffany Dragonash was the saviour and banned him super fast from the venue, which saved any more drama. I take from this a great learning experience as no where you go Second Life or real life you are not safe from people trying to ruin everyone else's fun.

The show other than that went so smoothly and every lady did an amazing job! The photos taken here on my page of the graduation show were taken by Ghost Harris who attended the show and snapped these amazing shots of me and the other ladies. So thank you Ghost. In conclusion I would like to send a massive congratulations to.

I really look forward to seeing these amazing models, rock the modeling world on Second Life. It was a great pleasure do the show with you all. 

The CAPTURED casting call is all over, and the top 20 has been chosen to be in the January 09 Issue of CAPTURED. I was so so pleased to make it to the top 40 and attend the final round. It was an intense experience, let me just say that. I have never done anything like it before. To even be selected to attend the casting call was much better than I expected to do. With so many applicants, I never dreamt of making it that far. I can not wait to see the January Issue and I am sure all of the models will look amazing! I really would like to congratulate the 20 models chosen, and they truly deserve it after the intense audition process. Congratulations to them all. They are.. and watch out for these names they will keep popping up..

On a lighter note, I also did the most amazing hint for Halloween this week, there are around 114 ghosts to find with some amazing prices from fantastic shops all over the grid. This is the best hunt I have done to date! I had an incredible time and loved the goodies! So a big thank you to everyone who was involved and a special thank you to Vain Inc. The Ghost Buster hunt runs from the 24th to the 31st of October... so hurry hurry if you have not done it already! Pick up your starter pack and get hunting!

Well that's it for me for today, I think I might do another post tomorrow about some photos and some of the freebies I have picked up of late. Take care everyone and have a great day xoxo.

Outfit of The Week. AOHARU

Posted by Jennaa Loire | Posted in | Posted on 6:10 PM

Ok so I have decided to do something a 
little different this week.. and from here on in. 
With all the blog hoping I do, I have really noticed a shortage of male fashion blogs, compared to female. So after seeing this I have decided, to add a male section to mine each week, using friends of mine as models for it. There are some fantastic fashion items out there for guys, and I do admit compared to female items there is nothing, but let us all hope it changes!

So this week I went on a mad, and let me really emphasis the work 
"MAD" shopping spree at AOHARU. So here are some of the items I picked up

from there and happily purchased for my friends.. I love them! AOHARU has a wide range of items, and basically is a one stop shop for everything. Skins, Shapes, Hair, Clothes for males and females, shoes and a fantastic range of Japanese items. 

Machang Pichot is the owner and chief designer for AOHARU, and can I just say she does an amazing job. She released her first product which was the "Japanese Kimono" in 2007 and started to create products as AOHARU's chief designer around the the same time.


AOHARU also have Lucky chairs all over the place, one in the shoe department, clothes department, hair department and in the skins department. The items in the lucky chairs are not dodgy ones either. They are the new and current items and usually a one off.. which you can not buy. Be prepared for some fierce competition for the chairs as there is always a crowd. 


One of my favourite pieces from AOHARU is the socks, which you can see in the picture to your right. They have the most amazing range and they go with so many items. Great for that extra touch. 

You can stay up to date with AOHARU through their website which is http://www.aoharu.info and if you are after high quality items at a fraction of the price, head to AOHARU. 

I was amazed at the prices, and they have a range of season wear as well, everything from bikini's to cute dresses for summer, to their new Autumn range which is just fantastic. Lots and lots of colors to chose from and a variety of textures which is always nice. So stop in at AOHARU I think you will get a nice surprise! A big special thanks to mainit and Ghost for modeling some of the items, I will try and talk them into doing it again ladies ;) Have a great week shopping!
