Secrets

Have you ever watched a magician? I mean really watched them, trying to see the slight of hand, the trick and figure out how in the world they do it? No matter how closely I watch I can never see how they do it, I know it’s a trick but is it? Is there magic in the world and only some very special people can tap into it? We may never know.

This amazing pose from Something New inspired my look and post today, A Magician’s Card is a prop and pose set that you can get right now at TWE12VE. TWE12VE is a monthly event that opens the twelveth of every month at twelve noon. This pose is so much fun I just had to use it today! I did modify the pose to bend my knee, but other than that it’s exactly the way it comes out of the box.

When I’d decided on the pose to use I knew immediately what I wanted to wear and headed on over to Frou Frou, an all-new, all mesh lingerie event. Astralia is there with this sexy corset and panty set available in four colors or a fatpack (psst…get the fatpack you won’t be sorry). This is just a fabulous outfit and is fit for Maitreya only.

These shoes were exactly what I needed to complete my look and since they’re from MODA you already know that the colors are off the charts. MODA’s color HUD always includes so many options to mix and match and make them your own. The cute little corset ribbons on the front and the back absolutely knock these shoes onto another level. These shoes are an update, so go to the main store and click redelivery if you bought the fatpack previously.

I got creative with my eye makeup and sometimes with these mesh heads, it’s not easy. I had to apply the shadow color to the lower layer and the liner layer to the upper layer to create the look. It takes some doing but it can be done. I couldn’t choose between the Zibska eyeshadow and the MUDSKIN liner so I did both.

I’ve been a blogging whirlwind the last few days, I tend to blog when I’m stressed or depressed and some of my best pictures come out of this mood. I won’t go into details but some stuff has happened in the last few days and I’m really looking at myself and my life, for what it is. For the moment you get lots of blogs and photos.

I knew I wanted to do this prop and pose set from Something New, coming up with the location and outfit was another thing. This is a set of 3 poses with a fidget spinner included, well two spinners. It is available at the main store location for 50% off during the month of September.

Always a Bridesmaid

A lot of little girls, even big girls I know, spend their entire life planning the amazing wedding that they will one day have. Not me, when we played wedding as kids I was always the groom, I could have cared less about the dress, the bridesmaids, flowers, etc. My friends would plan these huge, elaborate weddings and I would show up…just your typical tomboy I guess. As I got older, being involved in other people’s weddings was underwhelming for me, I really could have cared less. My own wedding was planned in 3 weeks, in my mom’s backyard with a picnic lunch, I was more concerned about the food, maybe that should have been my first clue that getting married wasn’t for me since my marriage of 5 years has come to an end. It’s a new chapter in my life and I still have no interest in a future wedding, I will always be a bridesmaid.

The Trunk Show brought to you by Pale Girl Productions is a wedding themed event, there are so many gowns, decor, poses and more for your wedding day you will not want to miss out on this event. Lybra is in the first of this all new bi-monthly event and the gown they are offering is amazing. Made for Maitreya only it comes in 8 colors and trust me you will want them all. This is a great gown for either the bride, there is an ivory and white version, or the bridesmaids. Lybra really went all out with the bowed belt to the lace. I fell in love with this gown the first time I saw it.

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!

Before He Cheats

When I started taking photos for this blog, I honestly didn’t know which direction it was going to go in. I got the pictures and showed a friend and she had the same reaction I did and the name was decided. I have been cheated on, lied to and left broken, thinking it was me but each time something like this has happened it has only made me stronger. I know who I am and never again will someone use me in any way.

It sure is a nice car, isn’t it? Too bad it’s about to meet the business end of my bat. I haven’t been able to find this car available for sale so at this point, I am not going to credit it but the pose, on the other hand, was created by none other than Image Essentials and is available at Designer Showcase. This bento pose is made for men and women and comes with a wearable mesh bat. In order to use bento poses you MUST have a bento enabled viewer, for more realism bento hands are recommended.

Some Beach

Life can take an unexpected turn, sometimes they are for the better and sometimes they put your whole world into a tailspin, leaving you to pick up the pieces of the puzzle, what is left of the life you once knew. Sometimes it would just be easier to run away, hide, pretend to be someone new, maybe disappear to some beach, somewhere.

My boyfriend is just as big a shopaholic as I am and we headed over to Kustom 9 the day it opened. While there we ran into Agata and the matching bikini and swim trunks they had on offer. We sat there and debated for a bit on which color to buy and decided that out of the 6 colors we would probably wear 4 of the colors regularly and that made our decision, fat pack it was. The women’s set is fitmesh and fits both Slink bodies as well as Maitreya.

Bad Romance

I have had the pictures for this blog done for two days, but I’ve had some really awful things happen in real life and it’s been sitting here, as I write something raw and emotional, erase it and then stare at the blank page again. Today I woke up, determined that it was going to be a better day and that I was GOING to get this blog written come hell or high water. As a matter of fact, my real life team has decided that is the new uniform for us at work, a shirt that says Come Hell or High Water.

So I have to be completely honest, I saw this outfit at FaMESHed from Libra, the three pieces are purchased separately to make one complete outfit and me, being me, wanted the fatpack which is not available. Shortly after I was at FaMESHed I saw Lybra open up blogger applications and I had to apply, one because I absolutely love everything I own from Lybra, but the main reason was that I really wanted this outfit, is that bad? The second I saw it available in the Blogotex I grabbed it knowing that I was going to blog it, it is absolutely stunning. As I said this is not available as a fat pack, you do have to purchase each color separately but I wanted to mix and match the colors to show you the amazing combinations that you can come up with.

Her blog is fabulous and trust me all the bloggers for Image Essentials make it very difficult to choose one every month. I pick my three favorites, the first hard task then I pass the links to a third party that has nothing to do with blogging and ask them to pick their favorite. Usually someone new each month. As part of the prize, they receive a pose pack made just for them with their name. This pose set contains 5 poses plus mirrors with a prop and is available at Designer Showcase for 300L.

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.

I was Made for Loving You

Sometimes I go to write and completely blank, my mind so full of so many things. Things like, how long will that reset take to finish at work, why did I start it already, why does the company I work for suck so bad that they overload us with stuff to put away before there are spots for it. RL makes me want to scream frequently but I put a smile on my face, pull up my big girl panties and imagine his face and my day is all better.

I made it to SaNaRae, I think I’ve mentioned that before but there were so many amazing items available at this round I just had to say it again. One of the amazing items I found was this super cute dress from Imbue. Available in multiple colors or a fatpack, the sweet little cut outs, dipped bodice and the full-length skirt is just so much fun. I grabbed 2 colors because I loved it so much.

This backdrop is another one from the Pseudo gacha at SaNaRae, I loved the birdcages and it seemed like such a perfect place to take a fancier picture. You can win one of 6 commons and 1 rare and this gacha is 75L a pull.

May Lelutka Powder Pack released yesterday morning, which means you can no longer pre-order it for the super low price of only 1500L but you can still grab it for 3000L. And you can pre-order the May Catwa Powder Pack right now. Trust me these Powder Packs are amazing. This month’s Lelutka box is packed full of skins and stunning makeups. Amara Beauty is back with Felicia. Felicia includes all 12 skin tones and 18 lipstick options. That alone is worth the 1500L price of the pre-order.

This awesome shape is from West End. I only recently discovered West End, when my frustration with creating just the right look for my Lelutka Cate Bento mesh head had me ready to just trash it and call it a day. I decided to look on the MP for shapes and saw one I thought was pretty. I grabbed them demo and bam! there was my face. West End shapes are modifiable so if there is something you want to tweak a little bit you can, but straight out of the box the face is perfection in my opinion. I fell in love with her shapes so much that when the blogger apps opened, I applied, crossed my fingers and prayed that I’d be accepted and I was! Now I can share theses amazing bento compatible shapes with the world.
