Hi Tumblrs, I'm Livvy! I like flowers, frogs, and fluffy animals. My favorite color is purple and I love to travel. I haven't been able to travel much lately but am hoping to change that soon.
I will be posting things I find pretty, elegant, beautiful. I like posting a lot of anime photos but also places I wish to travel too and and other random pretty things.
I try to credit as much as possible but a lot of times I find a pretty picture with no link back to the source and I still want to share. If you find one of your images up without credit link me to the page and I will add it as soon as I can. I do not follow just to follow, I like to follow blogs that I find interesting and unique. Please do not follow if you are only looking for a follow back I will check out your blog and reblog if I find something nice.

Johanna Mason: Statuesque Allure
The Capitol has outdone itself once again. Still basking in the stoic radiance that was last year’s stunning Capitol Portraits, we here at Capitol Couture have nevertheless been waiting eagerly for the next wave of incredible images of our cherished elite. Fresh from the excitement of the most eventful Quarter Quell to date, we are thrilled and honored to present the new Capitol Living Portraits.
As our Quarter Quell victors, Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason hold the distinct honor of being the first Capitol citizens featured within a Living Portrait. Here we see Johanna in an exquisite Alon Livne creation that “juxtaposes the flowing drapery of classic statuary while the super modern and sculptural iridescent white bodice references the branch motif of the Panem Seal.” With plunging lines and slits as daring and divine as the warrior woman herself, every element of Johanna’s ensemble (including her Alexander Wang shoes and hand-carved marble bangles by Chen Chen and Kai Williams) exudes her fierce strength and enduring pride- a true darling of the Capitol.
Already all the rage with the Capitol elite, Capitol families are lining up to view these astoundingly realistic hologram displays in person. Citizens can witness the artist’s hand-selected series of Living Portraits in person at SOCA this summer.
So last week I tried using a language analogy for a client’s project. The project manager said the project was straight HTML/CSS when in fact it was C++.
To help him understand the problem I used this analogy: “Let’s say you’re asking me to write something in a specific language, I am fluent in English and Spanish. Meanwhile, your project is in Chinese. Since I don’t know Chinese and it is not remotely similar to any of the languages I know, I am not your best option for this project. You need someone who is fluent in this specific language for the project to be successful and stay on budget.”
He said he understood and thanked me for my time.
This morning I received an IM from another developer asking: “Why is ‘so and so’ asking us if we are fluent in Chinese?”
LOL Business Majors!
