Happy Eid!

Happy Eid!

This is the last day of Ramadan and tomorrow is Eid for me so I wanted to share an Eid picture. I know some celebrated Eid today and some are celebrating tomorrow, so just wanted to wish everyone a very happy and joyous day, whichever day you celebrate! I hope this year brings lots of happiness and success to us all. To see my previous Ramadan and Eid pictures, click over to my Religious and Cultural Set. <3

The jewelry I’m wearing may look familiar to you. Maxi Gossamer released the necklace and earrings at Fameshed for the month of June. After that, I had requested her to make me a matching headdress for that set to wear in my Journey through India editorial for TREMPE magazine in July. She hadn’t released it yet because she wanted to add a final piece, the nosering.

Now the set is complete and the headdress and nosering will be available at a new event called Uber which starts this Thursday, July 31st. After the event, the whole set will be available at the mainstore. For more information about Uber, follow them on Facebook, Plurk and Flickr.

Weddings Around the World

Libby Farleigh, the publisher of Fusion Magazine recently contacted me and requested I do two images for her special Wedding issue. They have a segment on weddings around the world so she asked me to share some colorful imagery depicting indian wedding traditions. Indian weddings are usually a big celebration of two families coming together, […] Continue reading →

A Journey Through India

For the summer issue of TREMPE mode magazine, I was asked to take you all on a journey through India. I tried to use mostly mesh items in this editorial, however there are still a few favorites from the pre-mesh era that I felt compelled to include. The build I’ve used in all of the […] Continue reading →

Happy Ramadan!

(raw shot) It’s that time of the year again where I get cranky and moody while I fast with my loved ones during the daylight hours. Today was the 1st day of the Islamic month of Ramadan and visions of double chocolate cupcakes have been dancing through my head. Although I do have a tough […] Continue reading →

Desi Girls

You may not be familiar with the word “desi” it’s basically a term used to describe the people, cultures, and products of South Asia. Meet my friend Reema Xue, she’s desi like me. If you have Reema on your plurk timeline, then you probably already know that she is absolutely one of the sweetest people […] Continue reading →

Happy Ramadan!

(click here for raw shot) Depending on where you live and of course the moon, the Islamic month of Ramadan will begin in the next few days for you. The past week my family has been feverishly getting all prepared for the starting of the month. I kind of have a love/hate relationship with this […] Continue reading →

For you, my love is selfless…

I was listening to one of my favorite bollywood songs while working on this: mera ishq sufiyana which translates into “my love is selfless” and the rest of it is just as poetic, if not more. It’s an absolutely beautiful song. Today was the last day of school, so I’m off for the summer. However, […] Continue reading →

Jahanara

Last week Maxi Gossamar dropped one of her new mesh jewelry sets on me and said that she created an indian themed set for one of the Miss Virtual World contestants this year. I didn’t get a chance to try it on till just last night and I instantly fell in love with it. I […] Continue reading →

Marhaba!

I was listening to one of my favorite songs, Habibi, and this picture just automatically kind of created itself. A quick Arabic lesson for those wondering, Marhaba is a greeting or another way to say hello and Habibi usually means my love or someone very dear to you. Now on to what I’m wearing. I’m […] Continue reading →

Release me

Zodiac came back for another round last week bringing in sensual Sagittarius this month. I fell in love with the Kelpie’s Bridle from Evie’s Closet. It’s just my kind of jewelry. I love the way it pops on the new Amberly skin from Glam Affair in Africa tone. Amberly was just released today in 6 […] Continue reading →

Anarkali

I wasn’t really planning on doing an image for Eid al-Adha today, but some of my friends on plurk convinced me to do it. So I decided to login and take a quick snap, but my goodness the grid was laggy today. Was it just me or does SL just hate my pixel guts? Anyhow, […] Continue reading →

Salaam

When I put on this mesh Anarkali kameez and churidaar pajama from Bilo (which you can pick up at Cinema right now), it reminded me of the courtesans that wore these kinds of outfits and danced around for men, like Umrao Jaan. Here’s a song from the film about this infamous courtesan. I decided I […] Continue reading →

Eternal Longing

So I was really excited to have found this beautiful sim on Honour McMillan’s blog and I couldn’t wait to shoot there. I even liked the way the pictures were turning out but while I was processing them I was chatting with my friend, Anubis Darkwatch, and I asked him his opinion on something in […] Continue reading →

Happy Eid ul-Fitr!

About a month ago I blogged about the starting of the month of Ramadan, well now that month is over and Eid ul-Fitr has arrived. I spent the day wearing beautiful blue shalwar kameez (that totally made me itch) and ate lots of gulab jamun (that totally made hyper). It was so worth it! :P […] Continue reading →

Happy Ramadan!

The month of Ramadan has once again arrived and I have to tell you, I was so not prepared for it. But it was great waking up early to start this month with the whole family this morning. So far my fasting is going ok, I’m going to try for the whole 30 days again […] Continue reading →
