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!

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.

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.

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.

Pet Shop Blues

I am a huge slacker, not on purpose of course, but it happened nonetheless. I was given an amazing gacha set to blog a few weeks ago and I showed Maxe who laughed and had an awesome idea for the pictures. Well, RL got in the way and the time we needed to shoot the pictures kept slipping through our fingers, so even though this gacha is no longer available at the event you can still go play the machine at the main store and get your hands on a super cute setup.

When Maxe saw this super cute Pet Toy Shop gacha set up he said “wouldn’t it be funny if I stepped in dog poop while we were shopping?” and the idea was born. I set the pet shop up with various animals that I’ve gotten over the years from both Jian and HEXtraordinary and of course the sho\p items themselves. The gacha has 17 commons and 1 rare.

That’s a lot of stuff, right? Well, I’m not done yet. Maxe got all dressed up to take me shopping to get a new pet and some accessories and ended up stepping in dog crap, I laughed so hard I had tears rolling down my face. He wasn’t as amused.

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.

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.

Bad Moon Rising

She waits in silence, her trusty gun sitting in her lap, easy to aim in case the threat comes back. This world so different from the one she knew, evil and chaos ruled now and she was always ready for whatever came at her. The moon cast an eerie pink glow, the skies filled with poison. She stirs restlessly, hearing a sound she crouches, gun at the ready. Whatever is coming for her better be bigger and badder than her or they wouldn’t walk away.
It’s really hard for a girl to look good in a post-apocalyptic world but with the help of a few amazing designers I think I pulled it off. When I woke up this morning and saw I had the new Uber blog pack from Vinyl I couldn’t wait to log in and start creating my look. I knew how I wanted everything to look it was just a matter of finding all the right pieces.

The first time I saw these all new backdrops from Minimal I knew I had to have them. 4 separate backdrops available right now at Uber, or you can do what I did and get the whole fatpack. I just know I’ll use these more than once. Well made, 3D mesh creates the perfect venue for your pictures, post-apocalyptic or not.

Okay, so knowing what top and backdrop I was going to use didn’t complete my look and I had to find just the right pants, shoes, hair etc. I scanned around Uber until my eyes fell on these fabulous leather pants from Azuchi, available in 10 different colors/patterns I couldn’t choose just one so I got the fatpack and at only 1200L it’s a real steal! It doesn’t say on the pack or on any advertising that I can find but I am wearing these pants with my Maitreya body and they fit flawlessly, there is only one fit included in the pack.

These shoes, I never go wrong with Vale Koer and when I saw these sneakers it wasn’t even a question of which color, fatpack city here I come! At only 799L the fatpack allows you to completely customize these shoes to your style. They are fit for men and women too.

Now I needed the perfect pose to pull together my look and trying a few I already had that just didn’t do it for me I headed over to Poseidon, available individually or in a pack of six, these sniper rifle poses were just what I was looking for.

This hair from Truth, I couldn’t pass up, the high-sided pigtails with the messy curls and hairband color change HUD was just too much for me. I needed this hair in my life and so now I do. Truth has included their own face mask with this hair and it also has it’s own texture change HUD.

Hello Love

It’s Valentine’s Day or Singles Awareness Day or whatever you want to call it. For me it’s just another day. The husband and I went out over the weekend to celebrate both my birthday and Valentine’s Day, I got Japanese Hibachi for dinner and a brand new Samsung Gear S2 watch as a gift. I couldn’t ask for a better Valentine’s Day. We gave the kids their gifts and the hubby is heading out to work.

However, the wonderful designers and creators of our Second Life have not forgotten what day it is and you can get everything from something to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your lover to party items to chill at home alone.

Sittin’ Up In My Room

So I was avoiding The Chapter 4, not because I dislike the event or anything, completely the opposite in fact. I like it TOO much and I always end up hitting the gacha machines and this is a bad thing cause I end up playing and playing until I’m broke. So I was going to be good and not go to The Chapter 4, then my lovely friend Adalynne Romano posted a picture of an all new pallet bed available from Chez Moi and my resolve crumbled. The Chapter 4 claimed my soul for a few minutes but I got some amazing items to share with you!

OK, I am not a decor blogger, I try my best but honestly this was probably the easiest setting I’ve ever put together because of the absolutely amazing items I was able to get from The Chapter 4. So first I will cover the decor since that really is the main focus of this blog today.

Chez Moi came out with this pallet style bed for The Chapter 4 and I fell in love the first time I saw it. Honestly, this is one of the most creative, unique items I’ve seen in a long while and it’s just adorable. It is available in a PG and Adult version and has a texture change menu with 6 options. It’s perfection.

Bed: Chez Moi – Sassy Messy Bed – The Chapter Four

The second reason for my need to go The Chapter 4 are the picture blocks you see. Birch, by November Sorbet Craven, came up with the Love Photo Blocks, one side says love, the other side has spots to stick your own pictures in. They are an out-and-out perfection addiction to any decor and I couldn’t wait to grab them the first time I saw them.

 When I first got to The Chapter Four, after I’d rezzed in and grabbed my new bed, I saw that adorable Love Sign. It is in the Buy One, Get One room and when you purchase the red, you get the wood toned one. It’s is a hollowed out set of letters with wine corks filling the bottom half. I just had to have it!

Love Sign: Blue Sky – Cork Love – Wood – The Chapter Four

So I as I slowly made my way to the gacha room, knowing it was going to claim me for a bit, secretly hoping there wouldn’t be anything there that I wanted. First I saw the Wasabi Pills gacha and sighed, but I’ll get to that in a minute. As I cammed around I saw this awesome lighted words gacha and I pulled…and pulled some more. I got a few of them and they are all really awesome lighted signs but I wanted the music one, which I GOT! There are 12 commons and 2 rares that you can collect and they all have several light colors built in that you can make static or you can make it all random and it’ll flash through.

Then I saw the Ionic gacha *groans* I love Ionic and this super cute little house gacha with decor I had to have! There are 15 commons and 1 rare. I wanted the wall so I kept playing and playing and I finally got it!

Wall: Ionic – Paneled Wall Photocall – The Chapter Four

Purse Decor: Ionic – Purse with Stuff – The Chapter Four

Sleeping Pet: Ionic – Sleeping Lapin – The Chapter Four

So not being a decor blogger, I messaged Adalynne with what I already had and asked for her opinion. She said I needed a rug or chair, her stock answer *rolls my eyes and sticks my tongue out* So I hopped on the Marketplace to find a rug and Chez Moi once again had exactly what I needed plus some. The rug has a texture change option but I wanted it to match my bed a little better, so I chose the white option and used the color wheel in my edit menu and matched the rug to the blankets on the bed. I love that I have the ability to do that. Remember that I said I found more though? Well the light in the corner is from Chez Moi as well and with a touch you can turn it on and off.

Rug: Chez Moi – Multicolored Rug Sunshine

Lights: Chez Moi – Lamp1 PB Dinner

Now I couldn’t let The Chapter Four have ALL the fun, especially when I have the super cute Jian Love Pugs from The Gacha Garden and I’ve been waiting and waiting for the right moment to show them off. Jian’s Love Pug gacha has 16 commons and 3 rares and I couldn’t stop playing because I just love Jian. The rares and static pugs have texture change options to 4 different coats and the rares can be animated or static.

Wouldn’t quite be home without a pile of dirty clothes on the floor, or at least it wouldn’t be my home *snickers* I’ve used these in a blog before, actually went to play the gacha specifically for another blog but I have a feeling these will come in handy frequently. Tres Blah’s HodgePodge gacha, formerly at a round of The Arcade has so many fun things to make your house a REAL home, like the tossed clothes. It is available at the main store now and has 12 commons and 2 rares to win.

Clothes: Tres Blah – HodgePodge Gacha 14 Tossed Clothes

AMENDMENT

I totally forgot to include the outfit I’m wearing, I’ll be honest I am not sure you can still get it or not but it was a gacha prize from Dead Dollz a few rounds of Epiphany ago. I love it and it’s always my go to jammies.

Wasabi has come up with this adorable, messy top knot hair style, perfect for your lazy days at home or a quick trip to the grocery store. Available in two versions with 5 commons of each style and 3 rares of each style it’s just what I needed in my life.

Jasper is in the Buy One Get One room and has 16 different colors, in packs of two for you to grab for only 90L each OR grab the whole pack for only 500L. I am in awe of Jadis Ashland’s talent.
