It’s an amazing season, this year.
Spring/Summer 2013 is full of strong personal styles.
Wether we chose to wear pastels and be sweet or we chose to mix that sweetness with strong details, like a bold eye makeup.
Cosmetic Fair 2013 is going on right now and it is definitely a must see.
Zibska presents several eyeshadows for Cosmetic Fair 2013. Some are so springy that are just part of your day-to-day makeup ; others are really bold personal statements.
Dare to mix’n match! This season anythig goes!
Just be yourself and dare.
With a tender pinkish corset by Zibska and a jewelry set by FINESMITH, you just create THE look.
Here is just asneak peek of Spring/Summer Collection of one of the designers I’ve been following for quite some time.
Zib Scaggs created her brand Zibska and I love how I never know what to expect; what will she create next? Zib talks about her creations as if she’s talking about art. And she is!
“With this collection I have done something which I usually avoid and that is casual wear. It is a challenge for me to keep things toned down (everything needs ruffles! spikes! feathers! or all of the above!). In the end, what I have managed to put together in the collection are designs that Zib would wear when she does not care about poking others in the eye and some tamed down ones, for when she does.”
And here is one of the designs you can see from Zibska during AVENUE Fashion Week.
A challenge for her – to create casual wear – in this case a short cocktail dress with hat included. The eyeshadow and cuff I’m wearing are also from Zibska and already available at her mainstore. This is Claudie dress.
You surely want to see the rest of Zibska creations during her showcase on April 6th at 12 noon SLT.

The new trend for Spring/Summer 2013.
Romantic tendencies, very etherial looks.
Edgy new romantic for the upcoming season.
I was mesmerized when I saw Vivienne Westwood’s new collection.
Very hard to portray, as a vision of art, creation and very high end and sophisticated, in terms of fashion. There’s a sense of subtle decadence in this neo romantic style that is extremely sweet and tender.

“Strange” as in good.
The more I get to know SL creators, the more inspired I get.
I believe you all have seen miss Zib Scaggs designs and her brand Zibska.
She is now preparing her spring collection, to be released soon. Zib works non stop, there is always something new in her store, every week. Amazing makeup, acessories and her hair is outstanding for high end models.
If you have a light toned skin, her Anya lips fatpack is exquisite, created to desaturate stronger makeups, especially if you are exploring photography as I am.
For a more dramatic effect on your eyes, you have Tabea eyeliner; it comes in several intense colors.
Valle eyebrows include a super cute effect;
My inspiration for this look was the gorgeous Athala collar. A must have!
I don’t think Zib is going after “easy”, she is going after art and that was always so appealing to me, from the moment I first set my eyes on her creations.
They always brings up my creative side and it will bring out yours, too.

“Life is a strange thing
Just when you think you learnt how to use it
So many times, when you feel something broke inside you, something that can’t be fixed, you’ll probably feel lost for a while.
It’s like a fall.
The fear of falling – or failing – can be overwhelming.
But, if you have learnt through life how to fall or how to actually hit the ground safely, this will empower you in a way that is becomes a part of you. That’s what martial arts teach. All of them. It’s not about attacking or hurting others, it’s about how to remain centered and focused during a fall or attack on you.
The basics of martial arts is to actually never let yourself get to the point of attack. Avoid attack. Therefore, avoid falling to the ground.
Western societies see this as being a coward. Eastern societies know better.
What looks like a fall … look twice… may very well be rising up.
This is a way of life. Not something phylosophycal that hangs out over our heads. It’s practical on a daily base thing. It becomes a part of you.
This also means to know how to stop , whatever you were doing.
It’s not quitting, or giving up, nor being a coward. It’s to act according to your own self. Because we deserve to live a good life. We deserve to be with people who trust us. We deserve to be treated with respect. We deserve to be recognized with all our skills.
Avoid your fights.
Stay away from victimizing people: they will take all your energy away from you. Stay focused.
Somebody who lets you know how much they cry, how much they have done and are being so “badly treated”, if you for some reason act in a way that can potentially harm them – oh they’ll come after you, try to manipulate your feelings, try to make you feel terribly guilty. They may tell everybody how bad you were to them – poor them – they are feeling so terrible about… well, everything. They will spend their time crying over what happened to them. They will tell you they cried for days on end. Because of something you did. Not TO them, something you did, because it’s in your nature. People that place themselves in a victim’s position are usually self-centered, with loads of self-pity.
It can bring you down when you crash into somepone like this. It can make you think, you may get emotional about it. It’s just natural. And then, when you dettach yourself from the situation, you see all the emotional manipulation going on.
And the worst thing is that you can see that emotional manipulation working well with other people. There’s always somebody who will pity them. It’s not even the most basic human compassion. It’s just… pity.
This is a fight. It can drain all your energy thinking about it, rationalizing about it.
And if you feel like you’re just falling down, enjoy the ride and … look twice… are you really falling or are you raising up to the occasion?
To have compassion for another human being doesn’t mean to put up with crying and whining all the time. It may also mean to shake them up, confront them, stay focused on your own center and just be yourself.
And in the end, if you don’t feel comfortable being in a situation like that, just leave.
You’ll see that the weight you thought was bringing you down, becomes the strength that pulls you up!
This is where I stand right now. Living the fall, enjoying every minute of it and wondering… am I falling or am I raising up?
I know my answer.
Am I going to leave? Even if it breaks my heart, leave a project that has been the dream of my SL?
I’m getting there and the answer is on the way.
