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.

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.

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.

I am a blogger and blog manager for Image Essentials, one of my jobs is to select the Blogger of the Month and for the month of May I chose a very cute blogger by the name of Khaleesi. 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.

The decor is actually two separate pieces from the amazing KraftWork, the wall system is awesome. Rez out a builder, select the number of panels you want and rez.

The furniture and decor is also from KraftWork and includes the chair, table, frame, lips and bad romance wall decor. The chair has 6 female and 5 male poses built into it.

I have to admit one of the best perks of being a blogger is early access to amazing events like Pale Girl Production’s Vintage Fair.

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.

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.

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.

A true Queen of the North needs no man’s protection, she can fight and hunt just as well if not better than he can, her trusty dire wolf by her side.

I’ve said for the longest time, I am not a decor blogger and with that in mind, when I applied so many months ago to Goose Home & Garden, I never in a million years expected acceptance to this amazing group. It has challenged me, made me become more creative and try harder to create areas fit for Tyrek’s amazing designs. I find it very difficult at times to break away from my mold as a fashion blogger and incorporate these items into my blog but you know it’s fun and it never hurts to expand yourself.

The whole purpose behind building this beach was the hammock you see, Goose released the Adoria Hammock for Shiny Shabby and fortunately I’m not too late and you can still make it to Shiny Shabby to grab this amazing item. With a texture change option for the pillows and blanket and a vast animation menu you definitely need this for your summertime. It is available in adult or PG.

ZOZ always blows me away with the stunning nail polishes she creates and this is no exception. Available in two separate HUDs we have Mine in Lust and Mine in Love.

So Fetish Fair 2017 opens today, February 3 at 1PM SLT and there are some absolutely amazing items for you to get your hands on. The sim is absolutely amazing and you can spend all day shopping, trying out the poses available, all the demos of clothes, hairs, shoes and more. I mean this is the place to be if you’re looking for some fetish stuff and not all of it is completely naughty.

First up we have this skybox from Venue. This skybox comes with the wall decor, a wooden floor and some fun toys you can use, it is modifiable as you can tell by the carpeting I put down in place of the wood floor. The Playroom could be used for just that, or a kinky home or just about anything you can think of.

Location: Venue – The Playroom Skybox

So my whole intent of going to the Fetish Fair was this dress. Kenny Rolands released this leather, zippered dress exclusively for Fetish Fair and it’s available in 4 lining colors. It’s absolutely stunning and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Each color comes with fit for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and fitted.

Image Essentials in collaboration with 1313 Mockingbird Lane have released 6 poses with props exclusively for Fetish Fair. 3 poses come with a ball gag prop, 3 with a riding crop prop. The poses are all Bento compatible so although you do not need Bento hands you do need a Bento viewer to use them. Both props come with a texture change HUD as well to completely customize your look.

So as I was shopping around the Fetish Fair sim I found Sintiklia’s store and OMG I fell in love with this hair. It comes in all the standard color packs but what really makes this hair super special is the styling HUD. I honestly can’t even describe everything that this hair can do so I’ll just show you the HUD. The hair comes with a Bento fit and an editable/resizable version.

These stunning lashes from Mai Bilavio are available right now at Kustom9. There are two gachas, one for Catwa and one for Fiore mesh head. You can win 8 lashes for Catwa and 5 for Fiore.

7 Deadly Skins is also at Fetish Fair with this brand new skin. Available for Omega and Lelutka heads it comes in 5 tones, in freckled and plain. It does not include a system skin. I also paired the head applier with the ALL NEW *drumroll* body appliers coming to the Skin Fair in March. Izara has been hard at work updating her shadowing, highlighting and so much more to make her body skins look so much more realistic. They are truly fabulous.
