When I first came to SL I started to read blogs as a way to figure out this crazy world. One blog that especially caught my eye was Whole Lotta Rosie, written by Rosie Barthelmess. I loved her sharp wit and was drawn to her choice to live in SL as a plus size avatar. Like a lot of women I am rounder than I would like to be in RL and have struggled with body image for as long as I can remember. So a woman who was so comfortable with her own beauty -- inside and out -- that she chose to reflect her RL body in her SL avatar really caught my attention. Rosie struck me as someone I admired from the first blog post.
I always knew Rosie is a woman of many talents. She DJs at Lounge of Dreams where she is also the manager. She creates lovely jewelry and owns her own shop called Sable Rose. What I did not know is that she sings amazingly well. Please go here and listen to my girl Rosie sing Jason Mraz's song 'Make it Mine.' I am very impressed with her once again. Go Rosie!
