In the memory of Zelly Mornington

To the SL community and Friends,

It’s a month today since our beloved Zelly Mornington passed away. I’m sorry I haven’t posted sooner, it’s just it still hurts and it hasn’t sunk in yet, and I can’t believe I’m here telling you this. I just wish I had the chance to say goodbye to her.

Zelly was an amazing woman, boss, worker, friend and sister and I am sure everybody that knew her will be agree with me. She was a very passionate person and always gave 110% to everything she was doing. A true friend that always cares for others; she always worried about me, she always wanted to know if I was happy with the steps I was taking in life. She was like a big sister to me, the one that I never got the chance to meet.

I could keep saying more, but my worlds won’t be enough to describe her and from the bottom of my heart … I really miss her. I just want to give my condolences to her family and let them know she will be always in our hearts.

Zelly loved Striking Poses and after she closed she kept working on some new ideas. Before she stepped away from SL, she worked on some ball room dancing poses, the idea was to do a total of 10 of them, but she only managed to create 3 of them and they were never released. She wanted me to do the pictures when all of they were ready, she said to me “use some of your magic to do something awesome for me” … and here they are … Zelly I’m sorry that I am late giving these to you.

Hello lovelies.

I am very sad to announce that I am shutting the doors of Striking Poses indefinitely. I am having some serious health issues and as much as I've tried to keep SP current and thriving, I just can't at this time.

I have had so much fun making poses and meeting so many great people. I'm going to really miss that. Thank you for making my second life something special. :)

I am currently have a sale on everything in my's all been reduced to 50% or more. I don't know how long the sale will last. I'm selling my sim, so as soon as it sells, the sale will be over.

I'll still be logging in to SL from time to time and my poses will be available at I hope to one day return, but until then, this is all I have to offer.

PS if you are interested in purchasing the sim, please contact me. I will not be selling my business, just the sim.

Zelly <3

Just how I did ;) …
High Fashion 6

This adorable pose is number 6, when I first saw the hand near the face I thought "she is talking on the phone!" so I added my particular mobile and voilá!!!

The full collection will be add to Striking Poses flickr account.

Thanks for being concern :3

Hi There,

Lots of my friends have been asking if I was okay after what happened in my country, Chile, we got a strong earthquake level 8.8, after that, a huge Tsunami ... I am good, thanks God nothing happened to me and my family or house, for me the earthquake was level 7 and 3 minutes longer >.< ... but we passed in good conditions, I must say, I am a lucky person.

At the south of Chile, where was the catastrophy, lots of towns are gone when the Tsunami hit not with one wave, with 3 or 5 waves one after the other and destroyed everything ... ships are over houses, inside them or betweens trees in the wood houses are over other houses, it's just like a science fiction movie like 2012 or the day after tomorrow.

Some of you have been asking how can they help us ... so here is the info of what I've found

International Red Cross – account Citibank Nº 9941973331 – code ABA:021000089 – address: 153 east 53 Rd. Street 4th floor. New York, Ny 10022

I will be very glad if you wanna help, but I wanna make sure that I'm not begging you, I just want to share my damage people with the rest of you that maybe don't have any idea what an earthquake is like.

There are dozen of kids looking for their parents, calling them under the destroyed buildings ... if you wanna help, do it for them please ... everything counts, a pray, a light a candle, a best wishes ... everything!

I wanna Thank to Zelly to allow me to use her blog for this. Zelly you are the best EVER! also I wanna thank to Nicky Ree, she has been lighting candles for our people and waiting to know how she can help ... you are wonderul Nicky! :3

And how we say "We are strong, we keep moving forward"

Go Chile!

Sorry about my english spelling or grammar *blushes*

Ake .. the people seeker

PS. thanks to US, Perú, Bolivia, Australia, Russia, China, Indonesia for your help :3

So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen...

Several weeks ago, and with a heavy heart, I went to Zelly and told her my commitments in SL meant I was no longer giving Harlow my all or best, so we decided that it was best for the Sim to find someone who could.

I am thrilled to say she found her new "Jordan", Italia Villota, who is stepping into my shoes and will be taking over as Sim Manager and blogger for Harlow.

Tali is going to be an excellent addition to the Harlow family, and I wish her all the best in her new role. I look forward to watching her in action and seeing what she will bring you all each week.

As for me, I am still behind Harlow, Striking Poses and the wonderful stores I discovered and fangirl 100%. Plus I'm working with Zelly on another project now, so there really is no escaping me!!!

Good luck Tali! You have joined an awesome team and group of people to work with!

On a different note, we'd like to send Ake all our thoughts and best wishes. Ake lives in Chile and luckily escaped harm in the recent earthquake. Many others weren't as lucky.

Humpday on Harlow

Its Wednesday and you know what that bloggage from the Harlow stores!

Pose - Tickled Feet 6
Wearing -
Boyfriend Shirt from SF Designs

Full of great clothing for men and women, SF Designs has joined us here on Harlow. One of my favourite shirts is their boyfriend shirt. Its a perfect casual shirt to wear with jeans and comes in 3 colour choices. There is also 3 ways to wear it. You can wear it like I am above, tied around your waist, or as an open shirt with a tank or bra top underneath. Check out what else is in store!

Pose - Sulty 9
Wearing -
Fenanimal in Snake from XTC

I think of all the XTC clothing I own, this remains my favourite. You get a sexy leather thong worn with chaps, a cropped leather jacket, fingerless gloves, and the most stunningly textured long sleeve shirt in an animal print. I love to wear the top with jeans or leather pants when I just out and about. You have to see these textures to believe them!

Pose - International Model 3 #9
Wearing -
SSC Laqroki Jasmin Shape from Body Doubles with Deschanel Earrings and Cheetah Corset Set from Snatch

I just love my collection of Body Doubles shapes! I just love how sexy and proportioned they are. Unfortunately I don't own a Jasmin skin, so I'm wearing my Laq Tasha 2 skin with it. It still looks stunning! I teamed it up with a retro set from Snatch that I picked up during a Hump Day sale a few weeks back and my fav earrings...and they are colour change, so can be worn with anything!

Pose - Working The Camera 1
Wearing -
Slouch (Store Gift) from Fierce Designs

Fierce Designs is another new addition to Harlow. With sexy clothing to bring out the playful side of you and raunchy shoes, you are bound to find something to tease and delight your other half...or maybe find them when you wear this around the grid! As their gift to Harlow, the Slouch pink sweatsuit is free in store and is perfect for a casual jog around the sim while you shop!

Pose - International Model 4 #10
Wearing -
Leprechaun Special from Magnolia

Just in time for St Paddy's Day (March 17th) Magnolia has released a sexy sparklie green number to bring out the Irish in you...even if you don't have any! As with most all of the clothing in store, you get several outfits in the pack. You can wear the fabulous top with jeans, two style of flexi miniskirts, a fitted system skirt mini and a sexy little pair of panties. There is also two styles of stockings included, so you can be the sexiest leprechaun on the grid.

Pose - Pulse Racer #6
Wearing -
Grace in Silver from Catagory 5

If you haven't checked out whats happening in Catagory 5 for a while, you need to pop on in asap! Not only are the Grace and Kate gowns still only $10 each, but there is a fatpack of 30 soon to be retired outfits for only $29! Perfect for clothing an alt or helping out a new resident!
