Sometimes Good Things Need Nothing Else

I refused to let any clothings and messy background snatch the attention away from a stunning jewellery work by Artistry by ~E~. Its really one of its kind, mesmerising and sucking everyone into its beauty.

And recently, I fell in love with this hair. Amazing hair that provides just the right amount of edge with a tinge of that sultry feel.

At least I know my bag isn't going to be 90 minutes late for a movie date. 
I sat through the first 3/4 of Beautiful Creatures alone today.
The show was fantastic. The company was such a disappointment.

Video Made A Year Ago

video


Created by Nariko Okawa




Yes other than a photographer in Secondlife and RL, I actually edited a video before!
I recently found a video I created for my guild recruitment during days of Tera Online as a guild leader. Its actually quite nostalgic to find such things, although it is only a year ago. And to think now, Emperial has moved from Tera EU to GW2 Crystal Desert. Amaze-balls.

Oh, those were the days!
You may also view the video on Youtube at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gakHs0IYqiM (HD version).




Lots of Love.

something is brewing



Photographer  Nariko Okawa






Wait.





Because good things are worth the wait.
And also because I want to make you wait.

Dreams

And I know my dreams are sweet. But even the best chocolates comes bitter.


Today marks the first day I am officially changing my alarm clock past 6am forever.
Nariko Okawa quits in RL.
I have had enough of sucky employers, my focus is SL, my GW2, my RL photography business and my PhD.
