 I don’t pull poor Manni out of inventory nearly enough, but when I saw the awesome new stuff from Riot, Stealthic and !NFINITY I knew hy was about to make an appearance.

Today I am going to start by covering the location and the pose since they are interconnected. Something New has an amazing photo area available right at the sim, you need to be a group member to use the area but the great news is that it’s free to join. When I had decided on my look there was no other place I could think of to take my picture and no question as to what pose I was going to use. Something New is involved in enMESHed, a monthly subscription box is available for preorder through the whole month, then it is delivered to you on the first of the following month. You can pre-order your box for only 900L. This pose is from the June enMESHed box. Once the box has been delivered you cannot buy it again, so it pays to pre-order.

If you haven’t heard about the Signature Event by now you’re living in a cave, in the middle of the desert. Signature Event is a monthly Men’s event, that’s right guys you have another event with some amazing designers. Riot is there with an all new set of swim trunks. I love Riot because she really listens to her customers and works hard to give them what they ask for. The fatpack of these shorts is enormous. 28 solid colors, 15 fatpack exclusive colors and complete control over how they look. If you choose to only buy one color you will have the ability to change only the waistband color and turn the tie on and off, the fatpack is so worth all the extra options. As with everything I’ve ever tried from Riot, the fit is next to none, her rigging is flawless with no gaps or bulges.

I have been blogging for Stealthic since around this time last year, I bought a hair at Hair Fair, called Daughter and fell absolutely in love with it. I took a chance and messaged the creator and then the blog manager, asking if there was a slight chance that I could blog for them, officially. They said yes and I have never regretted my decision to blog for such an amazing designer. When I started seeing men’s hair posted on my Facebook page but they weren’t showing up in my Blogotex page I contacted Stealthic, because I really wanted to be able to show off the amazing hair being created. What I love about Stealthic is the style HUD included. When you buy one hair it’s like getting four, what could be better? This hair, actually inspired by Gac Akina, the creator of Stray Dog, will be available at The Men’s Department on June 5.

7 Deadly Skins is probably one of the most generous creators I blog for. June is officially here and there is a brand new group gift for men and women, men can grab Judas in Clay tone with 3 different Omega body appliers and 2 Omega face appliers. Want more than that? Well, grab the June Group Offer instead for 250L and get all the body skins and 6 Omega face appliers. This is seriously an amazing offer.

To be perfectly honest, and with no disrespect to any 1D or Harry Style’s fans out there, but I’m still not 100% sure I like this song. It’s not bad it’s just not really my cup of tea so to speak. When I was trying to figure out a name for this blog this song did, however, pop into my head.
Just stop your crying
It’ll be alright
They told me that the end is near
We gotta get away from here
I don’t know what end is near, the end of my blogging career, the end of my block? Who knows, but something is changing within me and I need to figure out where to go from here.

Uber opened on May 25 and with it came these amazing new backdrops from Minimal. I almost never miss a backdrop release from Minimal and these underground themed backdrops are just amazing. There are four individual backdrops available for purchase or a fatpack.

I love MOoH! and Dalriada Delwood, the amazing creator of some of the cutest designs, both in clothes, shoes, and decor. Dalriada gave me a chance when I was a fairly new blogger, she was so amazing never asking for more than you could give, only requiring that you blogged what you took. I’ve put MOoH! off over and over, not because I don’t love her stuff but simply because I let other things overwhelm me. This dress and shoes are both from MOoH! and they are so much fun and so cute. The dress is available at Designer Circle until June 10 and the boots are from Thrift Shop and you can grab your set until June 18. Each one comes with a color HUD and you can mix and match to make the style yours.

Image Essentials was my very first designer, Gerty was the blog manager at the time and it’s crazy to think that I’ve stepped into that role now. Image Essentials is a HUGE part of my photography life. I discovered the SL camera about 3 or 4 months after I began my journey into this brand new world called Second Life. From the first time I heard the shutter click, I was hooked. I’ve spent the better part of the last 6 years learning how to take and edit pictures. One of the very first places I discovered for amazing scenes to take pictures was Image Essentials. I spent hours in the studios, I had no idea about windlights, camera angles or anything else but that didn’t stop me. I would take a photo and play with it in Photoshop. After a few years, I met Kay Weston personally. She has become a very important part of not only my SLife but my RL as well. Kay is still one of the best pose makers in SL in my opinion, always at the forefront of technology for making better poses. When Bento was released she was ready to release her poses and just keeps them coming. This is one of those amazing bento poses, named after Anna Rain, one of our amazing IE bloggers.

I love Phoenix hair and when she decided to go to the Blogotex blogger system I figure “what the hell I’ll apply again” never in a million years thinking I’d get a coveted spot. I can’t even tell you how long it’s been since I discovered my first Phoenix hair but I fell in love and continue to fall in love every time I try a new hair that’s released. Lilly and Lexi are amazing creators and I am so lucky to be a part of their team. This brand new hair is at Kinky Event and now includes a style HUD. That’s like getting four hairs for the price of one! You can’t lose!

I am not too prideful to ask designers I admire to let me blog for them, sometimes almost beg for a chance to be on their team. Mesange was in an event I was chosen to blog for, I don’t even remember what event now, but I fell in love with the eyes. The shiny, sparkling eyes. I contacted Jadis and asked her if there was any chance I could get an application to blog for her, she went one better and added me to her team. I really respect what she has to do to create these amazing eyes.

When I was new to blogging I had NO idea what I was doing. I would apply to groups that I really wanted to blog for and would get rejection over and over. I think it was my daughter that Kenyatta that told me about 7 Deadly Skins, or rather reminded me about them. I had just gotten my brand new LOGO head and I needed skins that worked with Omega. There wasn’t a lot so I popped on over to 7DS and I saw a sign saying they were hiring bloggers. I thought “well what’s the worst that will happen?” I applied and when Shari Cortes sent me the acceptance notecard I about died. Sure I had Image Essentials already but they were as good as family and I felt that they’d taken pity on me, now I had a group that had taken me on as a real blogger! This brand new skin can be found at Mesh Body Addicts and is available for AK and Omega compatible heads. Hawai comes in 5 colors with body appliers included in the head HUD.

Powder Pack very recently opened up blogger applications, again I applied NEVER in a million years thinking that I would be accepted but when I got that acceptance notecard I will admit to being slightly shocked. There are so many amazing skin and makeup designers involved in the subscription box and the fact that I get to show their amazing creations is just awe inspiring to me. #adored is in May’s Catwa Powder Pack with a fantastic set of eyeshadow. It comes with 24 colors built into the HUD that is compatible with Catwa and Omega.

I applied to Applique hoping to get my hands on some new makeup, eyes, skins, whatever was out there that I didn’t know about. Applique is an awesome event that is strictly focused on mesh appliers, it’s so unique and like no other event out there. Sometimes I pop into the blogger room and get overwhelmed by the amazing creations from the designers, I could take everything on the wall but I only take what I know I will blog. I visit several times per round hoping to see something I missed the first, second or even the third time. I am one of those people who doesn’t feel right taking something if I’m not going to give something back, so I take very little because I know I won’t have time to blog everything. Sintiklia is at this current round of Applique with an awesome set of lipglosses for Catwa and Genesis Lab.

ZOZ is one of the very first nail polishes I discovered in Second Life, I’ve been wearing this nail polish for years and included different polishes in my blog from the very first post. When I had a few blog posts I took a chance of IMing the creator, ZOZ Icon for a chance to blog officially for them, she referred me to her blog manager, Ember Adored and she gave me a trial. Over the past year and a half Ember has been there, coaching me and teaching me how to get a great close up shot and has become my friend. I’m very thankful to her for all her help and guidance. ZOZ created these nails for Level Up, which unfortunately ended yesterday but she always gets things put in her main store pretty quickly. The marbley polish is made for Maitreya, Omega, Vista Bento, Slink and ZOZ brand mesh nails.

I know this post was really long and very wordy, but I need to see for myself why I blog and why I blog for those that I do, why I continue to do this and I am very grateful to each and every one of the designers and blog managers that gave me a chance. I love blogging and sometimes I just get overwhelmed, a little downtrodden and wonder why I continue to do this but as you can see I really do truly have amazing design partners and I’m not giving in, I’m not throwing in the towel. I will continue to blog and create what I hope are amazing pictures to share their wonderful designs. Thank you to my readers and those that made it all the way to the end.

It’s the end of the month and I am sitting here, digging through my inventory, looking at all the amazing things the creators have sent out in blogging groups and I feel no inspiration. Not because the stuff they send is bad or because I don’t want to blog, but it’s simply a matter of I’ve taken on more than I can chew and have fallen behind. Upon speaking to a blogger friend, we’ve decided it must be spring fever. This winter was so long and dreary and now the sun is shining and the urge to be doing anything but sitting at a computer is overwhelming. I am having to make some very difficult decisions on the groups that I blog for, as I don’t feel I am representing them properly. I don’t want to “drop” anyone but at the same time, I cannot give them the coverage they deserve.
What’s worse is a group that I would die to blog for opens apps and I put one in and then feel immediately guilty because I’m not even covering the groups that have entrusted me. Blogging is a tough gig, one that I love and thrive on usually but also one I am having to take a hard look at. I have spent the better part of the past year, on my blogging platform, avoiding interactions with people all in the name of building my blog, it has been a lonely existence but blogging was everything to me. It’s time to take a step back and re-evaluate. There are many creators that I could never leave and so much more I feel guilty for contemplating leaving, but I am honestly doing them a disservice by not giving them the blogging coverage that they deserve.

Today I have chosen to include some items that are not from a sponsor’s store as well as some items that are. Essentially getting back to my roots of blogging. Uber opened on May 25 and yes I got in immediately and got the items that I wanted, here it is 3 days later and I am finally getting around to posting the pictures I took for this blog. Masoom is at Uber with this amazing new dress and from the moment I saw the WIP I knew I would own it. This gown is materials enabled and sparkles and shines when you have advanced lighting on. It is truly a stunning gown. I bought it in two colors even though I seriously debated buying the fatpack. There is also an optional necklace available for purchase.

Another amazing designer at Uber is Minimal with an all new set of backdrops. I have become a backdrop queen and grab them whenever I see them. There is a total of 4 individual backdrops or a fatpack and the very urban backdrops are great for almost anything, I mean I used it with a formal. A misplaced lady in the city.

Foxcity does some of the best Bento poses out there, this is an older set that I picked up a few month ago and I keep coming back to them because they fit so well into what I want to portray. This set, called Surface is a set of 7 poses total, with pose 7 being the fatpack bonus. I totally recommend bypassing the individuals and going straight for the fatpack when you get Foxcity.

When I bought this dress I wanted a hair that would compliment it but was kind of fun at the same time, I searched high and low and finally made my way to Wasabi Pills. I love this hair, the loose braided style with the flyaway bangs was just what I wanted. I haven’t taken it off since I bought it, it just goes so well with everything.  This hair includes two versions and is available in all standard color packs.

Lumae does some of the most stunning skins I’ve seen in Second Life, I adore the fact that she includes almost every applier you’ll ever need, although most skins are made specifically for one type of mesh head only. There is always a freckled and non-freckled option as well as three cleavage options. This skin is stunning and is bare so that you can apply whatever makeups you want to make your look uniquely you. This skin is made specifically for Lelutka and is shown on my Lelutka Cate Bento mesh head.

Alright, so I made it through another blog, please don’t think that this is a negative posting, in fact, it’s the opposite. I am simply stating my concerns, my thoughts, and my feelings. Trying to work through my block in my way. I am honored to blog for the designers that I do and hope that future designers don’t look at this and think “this girl is bipolar, we don’t want her”. Sometimes we get overwhelmed and with no one to talk to about your feelings it can get crushing. So you, my dear reader, are my sounding board. Thank you for making it to the end with me, if you’re still here. <3

I’m a Lady

I am so far behind on stuff, I dig through my inventory constantly and find new things that I’ve missed blogging previously, or better yet an outfit from two different creators that just go together like they were made for each other. My passion for blogging is waning and I’m trying to find it again. I know it exists and I adore each and every creator that has given their trust in me to create amazing blogs for their creations. They deserve the best and I do my best to show them they way they deserve.

If you read my blog, and I know some of you do, you’ll recognize this top from my post the other day. I love it so much and the style is so perfect I decided to share it with you again in a different fashion. ChicModa has released this top for the newest round of Cosmopolitan and it’s just fabulous. Available in 10 colors or a fatpack you’ll want them all.

I’ve actually been waiting for the right moment to use this song and the two new releases from ChicModa finally gave me my opening. I have been seriously slacking on my blog lately. I don’t know if I’m hitting another slump and maybe will end up taking a break or if I just have so much going on with other things. My niece got married on this past Saturday, I’ve taken on a position as a hostess at Frank’s Place Jazz Club which I am so excited about. I’ve spent the past year on my blogging platform, cut off from the rest of Second Life, focusing on building my blog and making it better and better. Since I began dating Maxe I’ve decided I’d like to get back into the real world a bit, I still love blogging and I will continue to do it but I might not be as active as I have in the past.

I am so excited to show you the two items from ChicModa that were just released. First up we have an all new top. Available at Cosmopolitan from May 21 to June 3. This top comes in 10 individual colors for 189L or a fatpack of colors for 1099L.
The skirt is the BishBox release and will not be available anywhere but the BishBox. If you missed the pre-order you can still pick it up for the full price of 3000L and then remember to pre-order June’s box for only 1500L.

The style HUD included has 4 options of how to wear this hair and it’s just beautiful.

May Catwa Powder Pack was released yesterday morning and I think this is by far one of my favorite packs to date. Although it has been released and is no longer available at the reduced, pre-order price you can still grab this pack at full price of only 3000L. It is totally worth every linden. I opened my pack and immediately started trying out the different appliers to create my look. First, I had to find a skin and I chose the Modish skin from this month’s pack. Included from Modish is Vega in 5 skin tones and 4 brow options as well as 10 lipsticks (not pictured). There is an Omega body applier HUD as well as 3 optional shapes and an eyebrow shaper(not pictured). You can create a brand new look with just this item from Modish.

It’s been a while since I dragged Manni out and gave him some attention. Today I decided to show off some amazing items from the designers that I blog for that they make for men.

Riot heard you when you said you wanted some amazing clothes for men and her answer was to bring you an all new tank top. Andrew is a custom, fitmesh tank top made for Slink, TMP, Signature, and Adam. It is available in the standard 26 colors or a fatpack and the fit and rigging are second to none. I have yet to find something from Riot that is not rigged perfectly. Right now you can ONLY get this tank top at Signature Event.

If you purchased these previously go hit the redelivery and get the update for FREE.

When Will My Life Begin

I’ve always loved the Rapunzel story, the true love that led them together, the wicked mother that forced a life of solitude for eternal youth. I can’t even imagine having hair long enough to climb a tower with or the headache that would have come with it.

Enchantment has opened it’s magical doors once again with some amazing creations from some of the best designers in all of Second Life. Nantra is there with Rapunzel’s tower. This prop has 6 poses +mirrors built into it for all your photography needs, the poses are fun from standing back praying for your prince to come, to watching him at the bottom of the tower, puzzled as to how to reach you.

Pet Shop Blues

I am a huge slacker, not on purpose of course, but it happened nonetheless. I was given an amazing gacha set to blog a few weeks ago and I showed Maxe who laughed and had an awesome idea for the pictures. Well, RL got in the way and the time we needed to shoot the pictures kept slipping through our fingers, so even though this gacha is no longer available at the event you can still go play the machine at the main store and get your hands on a super cute setup.

When Maxe saw this super cute Pet Toy Shop gacha set up he said “wouldn’t it be funny if I stepped in dog poop while we were shopping?” and the idea was born. I set the pet shop up with various animals that I’ve gotten over the years from both Jian and HEXtraordinary and of course the sho\p items themselves. The gacha has 17 commons and 1 rare.

That’s a lot of stuff, right? Well, I’m not done yet. Maxe got all dressed up to take me shopping to get a new pet and some accessories and ended up stepping in dog crap, I laughed so hard I had tears rolling down my face. He wasn’t as amused.

I had a really hard time deciding what to wear, I wanted to look nice next to Maxe’s outfit and everything I tried on just wasn’t quite doing it for me until I remembered the Cutieberry set from Blueberry. I love this cardigan set, it comes with a dress and shirt version and a loose and tight version, it can be worn alone or it can be worn with pants. It is so versatile.
