One More Light

I lost my grandfather Sunday, August 13, 2017, to his unending battle with cancer. It started as prostate cancer and moved into his bones, he was frail and fragile at the end and in so much pain. I’ve lost not one, but two of the most important men in my life this year, my step-father in January and now my grandfather. They taught me so much about life it’s hard to imagine them gone. The song at the end of this video is from Linkin Park, another great lost this year, Chester Bennington had a way of making you feel his music, you didn’t just listen to Linkin Park, you felt the emotions. This song is very emotional for me because the lights around me keep going out.

When I first saw that Reve Obscura was working on a brand new gacha set I knew it would be mine. A total of 6 poses with props in all with 5 commons and 1 rare and at only 50L a pull you definitely want to collect these. This one happens to be rare and it comes with the speaker, guitar, and cigarette. This pose set is available at the main store location.

I’ve said it before and probably will say it a lot, but I absolutely love when 2 creators make items that work so well together. Today it’s a brand new top from Vinyl available at Mesh Body Addicts Fair until August 21 and these awesome pants from Riot for 70’s Punk Rewind. Xayalith, the top from Vinyl comes in 17 individual colors and the Jennifer Skinnies from Riot comes in 40 kinds of leather, 14 plaids, and 18 suedes. The HUD also includes 9 metal options. For both items, you can purchase them individually or as a fatpack.

West End Chloe is the shape that made me fall in L-O-V-E with my Catwa Catya head. Out of the box it is perfection, this one has some slight modifications but overall the face is mostly how it comes out of the box. I prefer a taller shape so I made my body a bit different.

Stealthic is always looking for new ways to make the hair he creates new and fresh. The newest option is the “animated hair”. Each hair comes with a style HUD so you have the option of 4 different styles but now you can toggle them to change randomly, just like real life. Who ever leaves their hair alone, really!? There is a GIF below this description so you can see the animation in action. This hair is part of the birthday round of Collabor88 going on right now!

This gorgeous skin is from 7 Deadly Skins and was released for Aloha Fair, which ended on August 10. I blogged this the other day and dummy me forgot to change skins in my excitement over the pose, outfit, hair, etc and my complete and total lack of concentration due to the grief of losing my grandfather. This skin is still amazing either way.

Wish You Were Here

The countdown to total solar eclipse has commenced, the tiny little town where I live is expecting 10’s of thousands of people to descend upon it. For towns in this valley that have between 500 to 1000 people at most, some places as low as 75 people the immense amount of people is hard for us to fathom. Only one problem to overcome now, the fires. There are so many fires in the outlying areas surround this valley that you can’t see the mountains for the smoke, they are now afraid we may not see the eclipse at all *sighs*. Well, good old Mother Nature (and idiots that don’t know how to put out camp fires) are great at ruining well-laid plans. Times like this make me wish I was anywhere else.

Gacha Garden opened and the moment I saw these all new poses and props from Nantra I knew I had to have them. You have a chance to win 1 of 8 different backdrops and pose sets, 2 rares and 6 commons. Plus, play enough times and you get the Seed of Inspiration prize. That’s 9 pose sets in total.

This is What You Came For

Today is one of those days that I am having a really hard time getting motivated. Woke up late, had to drag me into the shower, coffee isn’t kicking in fast enough, you know the routine. On a good note, however, I love my new job. The stress level is so much lower than with my previous job, the benefits are out of this world, I finished all the computer training yesterday and I should be in action today! I am a little nervous, they throw so much at you at once I am worried I’ll forget something, but that’s why I have my team right?

I love Reve Obscura poses and recently blogger applications were opened, I had to make a very hard decision of whether to apply or not. I already have 2 pose makers that I blog for and Reve Obscura poses are super affordable so I have chosen at this time to pass up the opportunity to apply to blog for this fabulous pose maker and continue supporting him when I can (which is a lot, to be honest). This pose is brand new and super cute, it is bento enabled and does require at the minimum a bento viewer, for the best results you do need bento enabled hands as well. You can pick it up on the MP or inworld for only L$50, it’s a real steal!

Want You Back

Today I close a chapter of my life, ready, willing, able to take the bold move and try a new career it’s made me think of other choices I’ve made, the results that have come from those choices and what I need to do to take back my life.

Sometimes as we’re moving forward it’s hard not to look back and wonder “what if”. Sometimes, however, looking back can make you see how far you’ve come. This pose from Foxcity available at Tres Chic was perfect to portray the feeling I wanted to convey. It is part of an 2 part, 14 pose set. They are bento and do require a bento viewer and bento hands to be fully appreciated. Each pose is sold individually or you can grab the two fatpacks and get 2 fatpack only special poses, one in each volume.

I love this song because it’s telling you it’s ok not to be like everyone, that you can be different and it’s just fine.

Blogging has been a pretty large part of my life for over 2 years and every time I start to feel like I’m not good enough or that I’m talking to myself I have to take a step back, look at what amazing designers have entrusted me with their designs, the blogs I have written and the comments and encouragement I do get. I get over the slump and start again.

Heaven nor Hell

Sometimes I’m wondering if we are in fact living in hell because it sure seems heaven is very far away. Time after time I get a text or call that something else has gone horribly wrong, I should be locked up in a mental institution after the past few weeks in RL but here I am, strong and holding on, being there for those who are more affected than I am personally. I hate being a downer, bringing my problems to others but sometimes my strength is ONLY there because of those I surround myself with. Their strength helps me continue on.

This is kind of a funny story, I went to the Lybra Blogotex to grab a really pretty gown they have for me to blog, I click the button to deliver it and I look over at the delivered item and smacked my forehead, I’d clicked the wrong button. Lybra only allows one item at a time so I decided I would rock this blog anyway and I’ll blog the gown next time. This outfit was part of last month’s Gacha Garden and as of this writing is not available at the inworld location. This outfit is so sexy though and I’m excited to bring it to you. There are 5 commons and one rare each available in 4 colors. If this gacha becomes available in the store I will update this blog. For now happy searching the MP for the amazing pieces.

Bento poses do require a Bento enabled viewer and Bento hands for the full effect, but if you don’t have the hands yet no fear, you can still use these poses they just won’t pose your hands.

I needed the perfect backdrop for this picture and I remembered seeing a gacha machine at Kustom9 from Bueno. I wanted a specific one and I got it on the second try so it was meant to be. This gacha includes 9 commons and no rares. I love backdrops, they help me create the feeling that I want to portray in all my photography.

I’m so lucky to have a boyfriend who likes to shop as much as I do and who sees things he likes and points them out to me, he actually found this hair from Elua and being a fan of Elua I snatched this right up. This hair is actually two parts, one parted to the right and one to the left (and I just realized I’m an idiot and shouldn’t do pictures at 4 am because I wore both pieces to create a whole different look *smh*) Honestly though I like how it gave me a messy look, does that count?

I woke up this morning to a notification on Facebook that my previous blog post had been marked as spam or against community standards and was removed, there is nothing in that blog or picture that is against community standards and sometimes Facebook makes me want to rip my hair out. I’ve countered them as it not being spam but who knows when they will pull their heads out and stop attacking people who portray themselves as avatars on Facebook. I don’t know about you, but I spend far more time on my SL Facebook than I do on my RL Facebook, I click ads, by things, watch videos, see what’s trending on this page than I ever will on my RL page.
I didn’t start out taking these pictures yesterday with the intent of slamming Facebook or the community standards protocols but it is what it is. What I did intend on doing is posting a picture of some amazing finds from Vintage Fair, Collabor88 and so much more, so that’s what I am going to do. I have to admit that I love being a blogger, one of the best parts is getting early access to events, shopping lag-free and getting my hands on the amazing creations that Second Life designers put together. I don’t get early access to everything, but that’s ok I still love shopping, it is definitely one of my biggest hobbies in Second Life. Blogging for me isn’t being sponsored and getting freebies, it is an outlet for my photography and a way to give you a glimpse of the stunning things that people make that I could not do in a million years, I know it’s not my forte to create, I’ve tried.

Vintage Fair opened on June 10 and there are some absolutely amazing things. This dress is just one example of the things you can find at Vintage Fair. Kaithleen’s released this dress for Vintage Fair and I have always loved the Rockabilly, Pinup, 50’s style. I had to have this dress. Each color comes with a solid and polka dot version with a HUD to change the frill. It is an absolutely stunning rendition.

With the right dress found I needed the perfect shoes to compliment it and who else but Breathe would have just the right shoes? I love these shoes so much I skipped right over the individual colors and went straight for the fatpack, I love shoes so much, maybe it’s because I can only wear flats in RL. Whatever my shoe obsession is creators like Breathe bring my love of shoes to life.

My first go round of the Vintage Fair I saw this cool pose with an amazing 50’s cherry red T-bird. I didn’t buy it when I saw it because I wasn’t sure at first when or how I would use it, but then I got my hands on the Lucky’s Drive-In set from unKindness at Collabor88.  I went back to Vintage knowing what I was looking for, but I couldn’t for the life of me remember who had made this pose. Two days I wandered aimlessly, (ok nothing so dramatic) to find the stunning T-bird.

Another reason I had to go to Vintage Fair was this hair, from Mina the soft pink curls with the wavy, long locks is just gorgeous. The moment I saw this hair I knew I had to have it.

I blog for 7 Deadly Skins as an official blogger, I was digging through my skin packs and realized I had the skin available at Vintage Fair as well, how perfect? Farrah comes in two tone sets, light/medium and tanned/dark. This skin is based on the AK mesh head but I’m wearing it on my Catwa Catya bento mesh head. This is an omega head applier and does include the omega body appliers.

My friend Lizz Avon, a fabulous photographer and makeup designer in Second Life, my super sweet boyfriend had purchased me a couple of her eyeshadows previously and I had blogged the eyeshadow made for Les Fest, then Lizz messaged me and asked me to be an official blogger for her. I am honored she would choose me to showcase her fabulous makeup. Today I have two items from her, eyelashes and eyeshadow.
