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.

I was not going to go to the Lootbox gacha event, I was going to behave and then I remembered Doe was there with 2 new hairs, *SIGHS LOUDLY* and of course I had to have them.

There are 18 prizes altogether, 2 rares and 16 commons and I got lucky and got one of the rare packs!

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.

I received my blogger pack from Wicca’s Wardrobe, the brand new release available right now at We <3 Roleplay. I love Wicca’s Wardrobe, the beautifully crafted, handmade mesh items and designs she comes up with. The colors and styles are always spot on and I am still so honored to blog for such an amazing designer. Phoebe is a corset, skirt, and necklace set with a HUD to change and mix and match to fit your style. The corset and skirt can be changed to 6 colors, each piece color change independently. The necklace comes with a HUD as well to change the metals and gems.

I needed the perfect pose so I went to one of my favorite Bento Pose stores, Reve Obscura to see what was new and this one came up. Bento poses are unique in the fact that they do pose your hands as well as your body and in some cases even your face if you have a bento mesh head. This pose does req uire a bento viewer and bento mesh hands to be completely perfect.

I am a little behind on sharing the all new Lelutka Powder Pack that came out June 1. Catwa Powder Pack pre-orders are now open. The pre-order costs you 1500L, if you wait to see what the pack has before purchase then you have to shell out 3000L and trust me, I have NEVER been disappointed with anything in the Powder Packs, either one. This month the designers have come up with some absolutely stunning items that I am showing you on my Lelutka Cate Bento Mesh Head.
Glam Affair has a stunning new skin applier made for Lelutka and if you already have Maitreya body and hands you need not purchase the individual body appliers since they are built into the Maitreya HUD. Barbara comes in 7 tones and is perfection.

I love West End, honestly, if it wasn’t for this shape maker I may have scrapped not one, but both of my bento mesh heads. I couldn’t quite get my face right and so I decided to hit the MP and see what I could find. I tried a demo of the West End shape and found my face. When I saw blogger applications open up I had to apply and I was accepted. I love showing you the amazing shapes she makes. Sydney is exclusively for Lelutka Cate bento mesh head and will not look right with any other mesh head. This is exactly what it looks like out of the box with no modifications.

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’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.

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.

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.

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.

How Would You Feel

I know that Easter is over, I really do and I’ve actually been working on this blog or specifically the pictures for 3 days, nothing was coming out right and it was driving me insane. Because it did take me so long to come up with the right pictures I missed a couple of important things but other things are still very viable so, forgive me my perfectionism.

Bloom is now open, this event is so much fun and full of spring. Riot is there with an all new spring-time, sexy and fun dress. This dress comes in 26 colors, she admits to not being able to get rid of colors so be ready to see more in the future. Each dress is 199L or you can grab the fatpack for an amazingly low price of 1299L. The fatpack includes all 26 colors and a bonus of 26 foil colors that are not available individually. You have until April 30 to get to bloom and get these amazing items. This dress fits Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP.

The decor, there is so much. Most of it is from the gachas at Bloom from various amazing creators. First up, we have this super cute bunny planter from MoOH! only at Dark Side. It is a gacha and the white bunny planter is one of two rare items. It is 40L a pull and so worth it if you love cute, little outdoor decor.

M.Law, Second Spaces, and hive all have fabulous outdoor decor gachas at Bloom. M.Law kind of made me laugh because as I was getting ready to play I said “no way will I get the rare” and I got it first. It is just decor, there are no poses built into it but it’s so pretty with its little shelf of plants and the field of flowers.

So April Catwa Powder Pack released yesterday, the items included in this box are absolutely amazing. Glam Affair is now a part of Powder Pack as well, so that’s fabulous since they are one of my favorite skin/makeup creators. Pre-orders for the box are, of course, done but you can still grab the box at full price for only 3000L and let me tell you it is worth at least that. Pink Fuel is back with a brand new set of skins, although they are fairly dark for my taste personally, they are stunningly made and are absolutely gorgeous on my Catwa Catya head.

I have not one, but two items from the fabulous Just Magnetized. First, we have the awesome Insta Beauty pack available in the April Powder Pack. It is a set of freckles, blushes, and highlighters and after much fighting with my Catwa HUD I was able to apply the freckles, which are tintable through the Catwa HUD to match your skin perfectly, and the highlighter. Since there is an upper and lower layer on the Catwa head you can apply two items to one section, just keep playing with it until you get it.
The Second item is at Appliquè and is a stunning set of ombre lip colors. Again, play with the HUD to get the glossy layer, add the gloss first on the upper layer, save it in the HUD then apply the lip color to the lower layer and you have a stunning lip.

I’m horrible about joining groups and staying in them, due to blogging a lot of my group space is taken by blogging groups and I need them so store groups tend to be one of the last I join. The other day, however, I saw a post by Breathe saying she was going to give away a free gift to group members. I love Breathe and so I immediately joined and I am not sorry for it. This Easter gift is a fatpack of chunky heels with a very sweet leg wrap that goes up your calf with a tiny bow setting it in place.

Image Essentials is at Designer Showcase from now until April 31 with this sweet set of poses. The set includes 5 pose +mirrors for only 300L and they are just as sweet as their name.

I’ve had a really good week, work didn’t drive me insane, although my almost 12-year-old did. I didn’t have to take too many deep breaths and count to 10 and I have tomorrow off, so it’s looking good. Now, Ana may kill me for not getting this post done sooner, but she loves me so maybe she won’t kill me too much.

In the February BishBox, ChicModa released Jett, a fabulous punk rock styled short dress.
