“My head’s above the rain and roses”

By laylahlecker – Fashion colLecker. Visit “My head’s above the rain and roses” for original post.

So, I had an eventful week. I had a birthday. I went to a workshop. I learned that I’m a ‘get appreciated’ personality type (according to the workshop). Good stuff huh? Although, that’s not the most important take away from this week. I also learned I could pass for a real life Laurie should I ever want to change my name.


The workshop dude thought my name was Laurie. When I first started working with one of my co-workers, she called me Laurie and called another co-worker Lisa whose name was Laurie. I know what you’re thinking because I thought about it for a bit. Unforgettable was my first thought, so I had to do some digging. I mean, my self-esteem was on the line!


I decided a name is just a name. Sometimes, I don’t feel like a Lisa (my formal name is actually Alisa; huh lol), and I feel more like a Laylah. Then there are days I feel like Sunshine. I don’t feel like a Jasmine anymore, though. Those days are over. The moral of my story? Sorry, but I don’t have one. This story is only beginning (or at least in the middle of the book).😉

‘My building in others’ photos – by Huckleberry Hax

What a lovely surprise, Huckleberry Hax used some of my photo’s in his blogpost about his ‘Nancy Redgrave Building‘ ! A true 70’s office, wonderful for photoshoots or just sitting and contemplating the good old times!

What the Huck?


A while back I posted about my new, 23 prim, six floor building that I’d put on sale on the Marketplace.  I wasn’t really expecting it to sell – especially seeing as how it isn’t mesh – but then again it was a labour of love for me and I did price it at only $ L49. So it turns out I have sold a few copies.


I was especially delighted to see recently these wonderful photos above and below of my build from Amona Savira on Flickr. Amona has captured the ‘open spaceness’ of my building in these images much better than any attempt of my own. It was a real treat to come across them.


I’ve placed a customised version of the building over my own land as the newest version of my ‘Nancy Redgrave Building‘.  I haven’t blogged properly about this yet because the interior…

I’ve been getting a ton of requests on how I take my photos in SL, so I figured I’d record a quick video on it. I might record these a bit more often, just to show you how I set up before I take the actual photo…if you want them, of course, haha

I use Anna Adored’s Realistic Ambient and normally mess with my lighting from there, and yes, often, when setting up, i get stuck inside furniture and walls with my camera until I get the spot I like…haha ^^

“My Name Is No”

I finally did it, i crossed over to the ‘darkside’ and got Maria and Penny mesh heads. I mean, i’ve had mesh heads before, even blogged them here but never felt ‘comfortable’ in them. However, it took finally another mesh head from Catwa and a change of skin maker to finally make it work. As anyone who follows this blog would know, i’m an avid Glam Affair fan and still am. However, i couldn’t make the skin’s work for the mesh head to a state where i felt happy with it. I adore the quality of Glam though and they are super pretty skins but i felt it was time for me to jump into the unknown and try another creator for the mesh head. Delving into Deetalez, armed with all the demo mesh heads from Catwa, i went and took all the Catwa demo’s from the store and played around until i found the perfect combo for ‘me’. I enjoyed it that much, i went and bought the same head/skin combo for Penny too, but a shade darker and trust me when i say, even a shade darker, makes a world of difference to how it looks. Anyway. I’ve posted both the edited and unedited so you can see the quality raw.
