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. Cue TP to Lootbox and a serious decimation of my Linden balance, but I got what I wanted so it worked out. There are 18 prizes altogether, 2 rares and 16 commons and I got lucky and got one of the rare packs!

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.

Yes, I’ve been on an Ed Sheeran kick, so you’re going to get several blogs named after his songs.
With that said now on to today’s blog. The 90’s were an amazing time, especially to be a teenager. There were so many clothing styles, music styles, just styles to try out, a time to find yourself. This was before the Internet as we know it now and arcades were HUGE. You’d spend the afternoon feeding quarter after quarter into the machine, trying to get that top score. I started the 90’s as a young teenager and finished it off as a young adult, but one thing remained, the love of arcade games. Bars, bowling allies, malls, even just standalone arcades were available everywhere.

So there are two reasons for my nostalgic road trip into the 90’s first up is this amazing dress from ChicModa. BishBox this month was themed Grunge Queen, and ChicModa released this awesome t-shirt dress. I chose one with just an awesome ombre tone but there are 6 total textures available, with really funny sayings, or awesome patterns.

Last Time for Everything

Okay, don’t strangle me, I’m bored and when I’m bored I blog or try to nap which failed and I really don’t want to clean house yet so I blog.
Sometimes you have to sit and enjoy the small things in life, like a fabulous conversation, your daughter’s first real date, just making it through one more day. There is one last time for everything. Take time to enjoy everything because you never know when it will be the last time.

I love when two designers come together, in perfect harmony, unbeknownst to them to create the best outfit. That happened for me today with Riot and MoOH! The two separate pieces, believe it or not, do not go together. MoOH! has released this super cute lace top and bra set for Level Up, going on now until April 15.

Kissing Booth

Nothing more disheartening than working the kissing booth all day, for a whopping 25¢ and getting no takers, I even offered a piece of candy with the kiss. I watched people all day, go in and out of the big tent, grabbing pizza and popcorn all around me, but I did score a piece of amazing pizza from some little old lady who felt bad for me. Well, there’s always next year, maybe I’ll dye my hair blond and I’ll get more takers.

To create my circus scene, with my poor little, lonely self, standing at the ready for my kiss, I found all kinds of neat things. KraftWork created this kissing booth gacha and you can win this rare booth. The common items included, two different neon signs, two different prints decors, a mailbox, a chair and a wearable kissing booth, so you can walk around the fairgrounds and still make some money.

It comes with a color change HUD for the shirt with colors, the lace with 4 colors and the zipper and beads with 3 colors. It’s an absolutely amazing top and everyone should grab this month’s BishBox. Since preorders are done it is 3000L but this will just prompt you to grab it early next month at half price.

I was sitting there last night, minding my own business trying to figure out how to put this blog together when my daughter dropped a present on my head, quite literally. She’d been to Kawaii Project and played the Doe gacha, Posy. She got this hair in gingers and since that is my typical color she passed it to me. The hair comes with a fitted and unrigged version, as well as separate pieces, so you can wear the bangs and wisps if you want, but you don’t have to. The HUD controls the bobby pins and you turn them off too.

When I was a teenager the movie Clueless debuted and I fell in love with everything there was to it, from Cher’s automated closet to the actual story line this movie made the list of my all time favorite movies and to this day is still a guilty pleasure. With this in mind I remembered a gacha that included a rare item called Cher’s closet. SAYO created the We <3 the 90’s gacha.

With all this sexiness I needed a pose that would do it justice and I found just the right pose at Fussy x Foxcity. This pose pack has 7 poses, 6 of them with mirrors. You can buy the poses individually for 55L each or in a greedy pack for 250L. These poses are Bento enabled which means at the minimum you have to have a Bento enabled viewer, for best results they should be used with Bento enabled hands. Poses will not look the same when used with non-Bento hands.

Sing for the Moment

I think everyone dreams of growing up to be rich and famous, whether as an athlete, actor or singer. For me I wanted to be the next Cyndi Lauper, the only problem with that is I can’t carry a tune in a bucket, animals howl in unison. Fortunately in Second Life you can live out whatever dreams you may have.

This was one of the easiest looks I’ve ever put together, from the outfit and hair to the location and pose I knew exactly how I wanted this to look, the photo shoot and edit didn’t go as well as planned and after 3 takes I finally got what I wanted.
Image Essentials is at Designer Showcase and you can still pick up these amazing poses for only 300L. 5 pose pack with mirrors, the fantastic closeups achieved with these will have you coming back again and again.

Pose: Image Essentials – Soft Caress 2 Mirror – Designer Circle

The dress, I saw this on a Facebook advert and knew I had to own it. The long skirt reminds me of a 1940’s stage singer, the low cut back shows of the perfect curve of your spine and the 16 available colors in solids and patterns are out of this world. I couldn’t decide on one color so I grabbed the fatpack and it’s only 1399L at Shiny Shabby, that makes each dress less than 50L and is so worth having them all. Where else can you get 32 dresses for this price?

Dress: Lybra – Adele Green Pattern – Shiny Shabby

The venue I wanted for my pictures was easy too, introduced to me by my friend Ana the backroom is a little, casual gathering place with a stage for live performers, thankfully no one was there when I wanted to take my pictures, I’d hate to have had to sing and make someone’s ears bleed.

Location: The Backroom
