The Bare Face Challenge

Previously posted @ On the Rox.

So I see that I have Flick’r mail this morning from Duchess and when I open it it says that she’s challenged me.  I was a bit worried at first, thinking she’d seen my comment from yesterdays group chat where I mentioned challenging myself to a post a day.  But noooo….she’s challenging me to the Bare Face thingie that’s gone viral in the SL Flick’r world.  You take a picture with absolutely no makeup, lashes, tats, enhancements  … and (shudders) no editing.  Is softening editing?  ugggg   No editing.  I saw Duchess’ picture…beautiful…and I’m still looking for the weird shadows she speaks of.

I now challenge Darth Kline (who wears more on his face than most chicks…no facial hair Darth!!) , Rhenu Muneris and Jarath Goldrozen to take the bare face challenge!

So without further adieu …here I am barefaced (and no editing at alllll…I promise)

I figured since I had to wear a skin and hair anyway, I’d piggyback on the challenge and get a post in for the Secret Affair…pretty clever huh?!  The skin from random.Matter is dewy fresh and pale enough to show off the gorgeous hair from Entwined.  The necklace from the Forge fits in perfectly with the Harvest Moon theme, as does the flower crown…also from random.Matter.

Check out The Secret Affair, their website and the Flick’r for more amazing creations <3

Calle’s Photo Challenge Submission – Like Mother, like Daughter

So, this months photo challenge theme is ‘What are you thankful for’, and for me, that was a pretty easy answer. I am thankful for my family, specifically my Mom, Shelly :) So, I asked her to pose with me in a post, and she agreed!

Now, first thing you will notice, we are both wearing the same skirt, funny thing is, this actually happens a lot, both in RL and in SL. While our tastes in clothing are not exactly the same, we do agree on many pieces. So we thought it would be fun to show 2 different looks based on 1 piece we both have in common. Lucky for you all, the Savannah high-waisted skirt from Tee*fy is available on the Marketplace, for only L$ 1!


For my Mom’s more sophisticated look, she was able to bring in a few other pieces that I wanted to bring to your attention. First, her SLink feet shoes from Gypsy Chic, which are L$ 55 per play at a gacha at the current round of The Thrift Shop. As well, her purse, and the cross necklace, which are both part of the Danger Danger full outfit from Rose Marine, which is on the Marketplace for L$ 55. As you can see, bargain finding runs in the family.


My punky, eclectic look, was pulled together with a great Marketplace find in my top, which is from {the.outhouse}, and is only L$ 25. The stack of bracelets I am wearing is another Marketplace find, and even better, are free!. Lastly, my super cute, and bright, clutch from Emporium, is also in a gacha at The Thrift Shop, and is only L$ 15 per play. It also happens to be a gift from my Mom…wasn’t that nice? Not really, that colour yellow is not a favourite of hers :P .


It’s funny, as I was trying to pick a pose for us, when we hopped on the one we settled on, my Mom said it looked just like when I am trying to drag her to do some shopping. See, SL and RL can be so similar to one another. LOL!

Before I leave, I just wanted to say thank you my wonderful Mom, Shelly Macchi, who is always there for me, both in RL and in SL, even if she did take longer to put her outfit together than I did!

Alright everyone, I hope you have a wonderful evening, and until next time, TTFN *waves*

The SL Ice Bucket Challenge

When I saw that the Ice Bucket Challenge had come to SL, Iknew I just had to do it. Even though, I've not been nominated by anyone, I wanted to help raise awareness for ALS. ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease is a neurodegenerative disease that affects the muscles resulting in death within 3-5 years for most people diagnosed.

The rules of the SL Ice Bucket Challenge are simple. If you're nominated, grab this free pose available at Fashiowl this weekend and douse yourself in pixel ice water while snapping a picture. You can also choose to opt out and contribute a donation to any charity helping to gain support for this debilitating disease. After you're done with the challenge, you get to nominate others to do it and so forth. Since I gave my SL bestie, Kimbra, the honor of being my assailant, I think it's only fair that I nominate her back. I'd also like to nominate Sarah Noble just because I wanna see her in a wet tee shirt. Haha! Enjoy the pic!

To see what I'm wearing, keep reading!

Bloggers Challenge – Your SLife in Photos

Previously posted @ Rags To Riches.

I did this pic 3 years ago where I collaged one photo from each year I had been in SL.  I was lucky enough to have photos that reached back that far.  Earlier today a friend on plurk shared a noob photo of himself and I dug through my archived pictures to find my ‘Life and Laughs of Arora’ collage I had made to share with him.  That was when I realised yet another three years had passed.  So I did a quick update on it.

Aroras Life Updated

Can you span your SLife in photos?  Do you have any that reach as far back as your first days as a noob?  I would love to see some collages of others lives showing just how much they are changed over the years.  Share your SLife with me.

The Bare Face Challenge

Previously posted @ Prim Dolls.

Bare Face Challenge

I was challenged by Berry to do the SL Bare Face Challenge on Flickr – and it seemed like a lot of fun! It was started by Genkai Tesla as a fun way to show people without lashes, cosmetics, etc… and without photoshopping afterwards. I used my sim’s default lighting, just to make it fun, and tool a longer picture of my platform in case people were curious – I’m always curious about other peoples’ platforms! Ironically, this outfit was what finally tipped me over the edge to buying the SLink body – both the dress and the shoes fit it better than the SL basic mesh body, and so I caved. My one sadness is that my Folly Rainbow Sheen isn’t a tattoo on the body…. yet. I’ve worn it without taking it off for months now.

Whoever wants to do this can! If you’re inspired by me, I’d love it if you shared in the comments!
