I Can See the End As it Begins…

I can see the end as it begins.png

I said, “No one has to know what we do,”
His hands are in my hair, his clothes are in my room
And his voice is a familiar sound, nothing lasts forever
But this is getting good now
He’s so tall, and handsome as hell
He’s so bad but he does it so well
And when we’ve had our very last kiss
My last request, it is…

Here’s Where She Meets Prince Charming… But She Won’t Discover That it’s Him ’til Chapter Three…

Here's Where She Meets Prince Charming.png

Look there she goes, the girl that’s strange but special.
A most peculiar mademoiselle.
It’s a pity and a sin, she doesn’t quite fit in…

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

I really can’t stay
(baby it’s cold outside)
I’ve got to go away
(baby it’s cold outside)
The evening has been 
So very nice… 
(I’ll hold your hands, they’re just like ice)

I’m as Free as a Bird Now…

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on now
‘Cause there’s too many places I’ve got to see.

 

No. I’m not really going anywhere, I promise!

Usually, I try to avoid too much shameless self-promotion on here (I really do need to make ::Mirror Mirror:: it’s own blog), but I feel okay doing it this time around. I am so proud of this summer casuals collection. I used lots of warm colors, and everything ended up with a song title as the name, because I was listening to a super awesome playlist while I was making Photoshop mind me.

Really though, guys. Designers put so much time into their creations. I know that as a fact now, and I think it has really given me another viewpoint from a blogger’s perspective. We should take just as much care when blogging these items as they do in designing them for us.

I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who has blogged ::Mirror Mirror:: for me thus far. It really means a lot to me.

PHOTO CONTEST ANNOUNCEMENT!

The first half-ish of the new formals collection is in the store! There are ten total new gowns in this formals collection, which I have named “50 Shades of Gray” because I’m a smarty-pants. Pieces from the collection will appear in a My Light Fashion Agency show on March 17th, where an EXCLUSIVE piece not available in the store (yet) will be showcased! The exclusive from the upcoming My Light show will release in-store after the show.

The other half of the collection will release soon.

For those interested in the cover photo contest, here are the details!

The contest will run from tomorrow 3/15/16 to 5/15/16. How do you enter?

1. Pick up your favorite piece from the “50 Shades of Gray” formals collection in the store. The collection is releasing in stages, so feel free to check back throughout the duration of the contest for other pieces, or watch the ::MM:: Facebook page for release information!

2. Like our Facebook page!

3. Snap your best photo! – Be creative, and be YOU. Have FUN with it. Photoshop is allowed, but not required. Please do NOT pay a professional. Do your own photos. Photoshop is allowed, but not required.

Two runners-up will also be offered the opportunity to blog for ::MM:: or model in future ads if they so choose. ::MM:: bloggers and models often get a look at future pieces well before they hit the store.

If Only Wishes Could Be Dreams…

So, I hate this new WordPress format. So much hate.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of my system, I have some pretty exciting news.

I already mentioned that I’m one of the newest members of Models Giving Back. Which I still can’t get over. I do a lot of charity work in my real life, so being involved with an agency with such a strong philanthropic base is just absolutely stellar. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Which brings me to my news. I will be blogging for the Peace on Earth hunt this year. It’s starting soon, so please stay tuned as I explore some of the awesome freebies from over 75 vendors across the grid. This hunt is in the spirit of giving, and it’s perfect for people from all walks of life, families, couples… I’m pretty sure there’s something for everyone. Here’s the thing, though. I am doubly excited not only because this is my first year blogging the hunt, but because this year, I’ll be participating in the hunt in more than one capacity.

Novaleigh… Blogger. Hunter. Designer.

Yep. That’s right, folks. I’ve officially lost my little mind. My little store, which hasn’t even officially OPENED yet, will be in the hunt this year.

I’ve been hoping to open my own little place for quite a while now, but life always seemed to get in the way, especially lately. A few weeks ago, I was upset that something else I’d been planning had been kinda snatched out from under me. When someone I used to call a friend shrugged it off and basically said, “Well, there are no original ideas in SL anymore, blah blah, no one ever knows when or if you’ll finish anything because of your health, etc, so why are you upset?”

At that point, I took a few weeks off and took a few steps back. Steps away from the people who were toxic in my life, and steps away from the things that were causing me stress. I did that, and I looked in the mirror and realized that somewhere along the way, I’d gotten a bit lost.

I’m back now, and on top of reevaluating my priorities, I’ve been working my butt off. Meet the ‘Noel’ Gown. This is what will be available to POE hunters who stop by ::Mirror Mirror:: during the hunt.

Noel Ad

Yes. That’s my store’s name. I was listening to a really old song… Well, not really old, but old. And I was thinking about how SL allows me to be whatever I want to be, and how modeling allows me to literally change my look from head-to-toe whenever I please, or whenever the challenge calls for it. SL is a place where so many things are possible. And that’s where I got the name. Love it or hate it, but it exists.

There’s several other gowns available. Right now, I’ve got a very small store, so every once in a while, I’m going to be switching gowns and nail sets out in favor of new designs, new themes, etc. The first set of gowns available in my store (with the exception of Noel) are all named after some very amazing friends I’ve made in SL that have really had an impact on my life. These are ladies who I love deeply. I even based the color schemes off of some of their favorite colors. I love you ladies. Y’all know who you are.

But.. I’m going to shut up now. I may be changing the formatting of how I do these blogs. Not today. Too tired. But want to make everything look pretty and uniform. We’ll see if I can get started on that in the next couple days.

Wish me luck?
