Something Just Like This

With only a few days left in my current job, I am actually finding it harder and harder to put up with the ignorant, self-entitled people that come into the store where I work. Those that feel that they can do whatever they want and not face any consequences and that the company is responsible for the inattentiveness. *SIGHS* They exist everywhere, real life, Second Life, in every country in the world and there is nothing you can honestly do about it because those people will NEVER be wrong.
What I do, what I always do when I’m feeling a bit blah is take some pictures in Second Life. I may not be perfect at it but I think I’m pretty good, at least I try my best to showcase the amazing creations that are given to me or bought by me. The designers in SL have to deal with the entitled people that I mentioned before, constantly under fire for one indiscretion or another, a slight that only a few people see. For me, I see amazing items that I could never make myself and I am so honored to be able to share them with my readers. Before sending hateful or ignorant messages to a creator ask yourself one question “can you do it better or can you do it at all?” if the answer is “NO” then be kind in your questions and comments to creators.
Today I have an amazing dress from ChicModa to share with you, this dress is available at the current round of Cosmopolitan and is available in 10 individual colors and a fatpack. The tie and knot are able to be textured individually from the dress to create a completely unique look.

The second stunning item I have is from Lybra and is available right now at Kinky Event.

These are just fantastic and I can’t get enough of them.

If you haven’t made it to the Hair Fair 2017 yet you are missing out on some of the most amazing hairs I’ve seen in a long time, like this one from Iconic.

It also comes with a style HUD to change the bangs, so it’s really like getting two hairs for the price of one!

It’s no secret I love Image Essentials poses, not only because Kay Weston took in a poor, lonely girl and tried to teach her (and is still trying to teach her) how to take amazing photos.

This set of poses includes 8 poses in total.

When I was a kid, Cocktail came out, the hit song from The Beach Boy, Kokomo was part of the soundtrack and it was forever emblazoned in my mind with escaping and living your dreams. I got this set from KraftWork and immediately thought of beautiful beaches, crisp white sand, the waves gently licking at my feet. My perfect escape. I’m working on a plan to get where I really want to be in RL and the first step was finding a job that won’t make me eat, sleep, and breath it. That done, next, I am going to fix my credit, get a few other things I’ve put off taken care of and by the time my youngest daughter graduates high school I should be well on my way to living the life I was meant to live.

First up, I want to cover the featured pic of this blog, since that is where you can see the amazing beach burger shack created by the one and only KraftWork. This is available right now at Knot & Co until September. It is all one piece and comes with the sandbox with chairs situated in front of the shack. The whole things is just fabulous.

Knowing the location for my scene was easy and having seen an ad on Facebook for a brand new hair from Doe I knew I was going to use that too, but what to wear?

With everything going on in my RL lately I had to take a long, hard look at my life, the direction I was headed in and make some drastic decision. With the loss of my right hand man (no I didn’t actually lose my hand sorry everyone *smh*) at work due to circumstances beyond ANYONE’s control and having to promote someone into a position when all I really want to do is terminate her altogether, having to deal with the drama of a small town with small-minded people and so much more I chose to apply for a new job. I was informed yesterday I was selected for the position and I now have a goal, an end date for my hell if you will. Already I feel lighter, freer and I can breathe a little easier now.

One of the greatest parts of feeling free is that some of my spark for life is returning, feeling like my creativity is flowing again and my desire to return to doing things that I have always loved is coming back. Today I bring you an amazing new outfit from Lybra at Souled Out. Each individual color includes a HUD for the bodysuit and belt in 10 colors, however, if you decided to grab the fatpack you get a total of 16 colors for the belt, corset, and bodysuit to mix and match your style. The top can also be turned off for a naughty version.

As the blogger manager for Image Essentials, it comes down to me to pick the person I think deserves the honor of being named Blogger of the Month. Each and every month I comb through each and every post, look at the amazing creations the bloggers present and make the very hard choice of narrowing it down to the top 3. At that point, I bug one of my friends to pick their favorite because I am so biased. We have an absolutely amazing team of bloggers and choosing just one is impossible for me. This month our blogger was Nicolas Baryl and as part of her prize, she gets a pose set named after her. GothNIC is inspired by Nicolas and is 5 poses plus mirrors available at Designer Circle starting June 25 and will be reduced to 200L for the duration of the event.

Real life has reared it’s ugly head in some of the worst ways imaginable, I am trying to keep from drowning in panic. It’s not easy when the responsibilities you have seem to weigh down on you all at once but I am trying to keep positive and I am doing things I wouldn’t normally do to keep afloat. Blogging is a stress reliever for me, most of the time and lately it’s been kind of stressful for me as well but I am also trying to stay positive on that as well and doing the thing that I do. I love blogging and I am using the posts for my sounding board, for my cathartic release.

Crying in the Club

With the latest terror attack in London, there are questions swirling around in my brain. Why is there so much hate, why do people have to be so cruel? What did those people do to earn this horrific death? Absolutely nothing is the answer, this is the sins of the father visiting the son so to speak. I wish I could just make peace and friendship a thing, get rid of all the hate, racism and bigotry that is in the world. I wasn’t raised to hate, I was raised with respect and love and these tales of terror just really make no sense to me.
I didn’t start this blog with the intention of voicing my thoughts on the horrors around the world, but sometimes you just have to get it off your chest. On a positive note, I was scrolling through my Blogotex dashboard yesterday, the new feature allows you to see all your designers, open applications, and rejections in one place. I applied to Lybra, never expecting to get accepted because let’s be honest. I never think I’m going to be accepted, it’s how I keep going. I had been waiting to see who Lybra had chosen as a blogger since I knew it was coming fairly quickly. I scrolled to the spot where my open applications were and it was gone so I immediately scrolled to the rejections and it wasn’t there either. I start looking through my list of designers and there is Lybra, I about had a heart attack! I am so excited and honored to blog for such an amazing brand.

Limit8 is still going on right now and Lybra is there with two creations. Milly is the non-limited dress and comes in 10 colors or a fatpack with 16 colors. This dress is so cute with the lace overlay skirt and I couldn’t wait to put it on and show it all to you. The Limit8 version is called Gabriella, it has 16 colors and is completely limited. If you want the Gabriella you have to go get it now before the event ends.

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.

Remember Powder Pack can be pre-ordered before release for only 1500L, after release it’s 3000L so you should definitely pre-order.

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.

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.

She’s Like the Wind

Dirty Dancing was and still is one of my favorite movies of all times. I saw it for the first time when I was about 9 and I was hooked. It’s been a movie that I can play over and over again, never getting old, even though I can quote the ENTIRE movie word for word. When I saw one of the exclusive poses from Something New for Pose Fair, I knew I was going to use this song.

As I stated, Something New is at Pose Fair, Her Wind is one of the exclusive poses you can grab during this event. The pose comes with leaves, rocks, and grass and yes I know it is not fall in the US but in Australia, it so just goes with it.

I recently discovered a store. Personally, I’ve never heard of it and I don’t know if that means it’s fairly new on the grid or if I’m just out of the loop, but Monderlay makes some amazing mesh items.
