My greatest achievements.

November 20, 2009 at 10:10 pm (MRI blogs, Musings) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

Today when chatting with a friend I was reminded how much things have changed and the sorts of events and achievements that I have had since starting in Second Life. Back in the day when I first started out it was an achievement for me to actually move around with out bumping into people and going into sims half dressed 😉 I finally progressed to an acceptable avi that soon learnt in a few weeks the ins and out of navigating around Second Life as well as how to put together a moderately well made avi. Although I did have to answer the question of was I an alt a billion times. We move forward a few months and I was sucessful in aquring a job for Kayia Islands at one of their sims called Cupids Lagoon. It was a dream job in those times 🙂 Hosting a venue with some fab people learning lots in Second Life and enjoying a job I loved to do. Sadly I had to leave as I was possibly moving in real life and also I wanted to spend a little more time doing my real life job. After a few months things settled down and I decided that it was time to try a new venture. That was when modeling came along and tempted me. So I signed up to a few agencies and it was Modelpages International that won my heart. My first big achievement there was to start the programme with them. Then I was lucky enough to graduate all be it a little later then I had hoped due to real life interruptions. Graduation day was wonderful and my first real live fashion show with them. I also managed in the same month to get selected for Miss Refined International and as a new model it was a huge achievement. Next along the line was to be lucky enough to be accepted to Rock Me Amadaeus as a in store model. I love working for the store and my family of girls are the best. In the last two months I think my greatest achievement has been being accepted into the Miss Refined contest. It was a great honour to be put through in Septembers round and I am totally enjoying the challenges to make it through to the finals. Recently I have also spent time on the House of Beningborough runway. It was also another highlight in my modeling career to have my pictures chosen as weekly winners with some of the best in the business. Of course there have been many others like walking in shows for a variety of other agencies. But to me these are the ones that stick out them most.

To finish with I want to try and include a song that I find inspirational. I played this for children in Year 6 in my RL job – we try to encourage them to stive for the skies 🙂 It is their last year in our primary school age and a great song for end of year to help them remember how great they are 😉

The World\'s Greatest

R. KELLY
Miscellaneous
World’s Greatest
Album: Chocolate Factory (2003)

I am a mountain
I am a tall tree
Ohhh, I am a swift wind
Sweepin’ the country
I am a river
Down in the valley
Ohhh, I am a vision
And I can see clearly
If anybody asks u who I am
Just stand up tall look ’em in the Face and say

I’m that star up in the sky
I’m that mountain peak up high
I made it
I’m the worlds greatest
And I’m that little bit of hope
When my backs against the ropes
I can feel it mmm
I’m the worlds greatest

I am a giant
I am an eagle
I am a lion
Down in the jungle
I am a marchin’ band
I am the people
I am a helpin’ hand
And I am a hero
If anybody asks u who I am
Just stand up tall look ’em in the Face and say

I’m that star up in the sky
I’m that mountain peak up high
I made it
I’m the worlds greatest
And I’m that little bit of hope
When my backs against the ropes
I can feel it
I’m the worlds greatest

Makes me smile

Meeting people…

November 13, 2009 at 11:32 pm (Miss Refined International, MRI blogs) (, , , , , , , , , )

Well as part of the Miss Refined International contest we are meeting people that we might not have met till much later on in their life. Some of the people we meet in the paths we take can affect the way we are or how we deal with others in the future. I would say that it was nice being friends with Queen before we both went into MRI – I had already made the September cut and she was going for the October group. I had not realised she was in my group for when we tried out in September as I didn’t know her at that stage. We met much later on in one of the other agencies we both attend. I have mentioned Queen a few times but over the course of MRI its been nice to have someone else to discuss the challenges the pitfalls and the positive aspects of not only MRI but of modeling in general. We talk to each other about what we are working on, offer advice and ask advice. At times we are in Beningborough together and it is always nice to have someone you can bounce ideas off against chat to and generally talk about the things we go through in SL. I’d like to consider her as a great friend. I have also had the pleasure in meeting one or two of the others and trained with Saleena Hax but it has been with Queen I have made the greatest connection. Its nice to have some close friends of such a lovely nature 🙂

Just another day…

November 4, 2009 at 4:01 pm (competitions, Life of SL Model, Modeling world) (, , , , , , , , )

Well today has been mainly about being a Runway Model in store for House of Beningborough – I was lucky enough to enter my pictures in a Beningborough designed outfit for Week 1 of November and now have the chance if my work is good enough through pictorial form and through my in store modeling to be chosen for Model of the Month.  The prizes are amazing but above and beyond that it is also the chance to model in one of my, no I must say it the  most favourite store of mine in SL.  Here are the pics I put in for the first week entry. These were the ones or one of the ones that afforded me the placement in her model team for Week 1 and I am on tenterhooks about if I have made it for Week 2.

Later today I am on a hair mission so will be visiting a plethora of stores in search for any new interesting and never seen before hair – MMh I wonder if that is possible at all… If you happen to see some great hair and think I should check it out contact me in world or leave me a little message right here 🙂
