Not Afraid Anymore

Walking to the edge and freefalling is the scariest thing in the world, rather it’s literally jumping from a cliff or starting a new relationship. Sometimes you have to trust that something will be there to catch you.

There is not one, but two awesome events starting today. ChicModa is at Cosmopolitan Sales Room with this fantastic new dress. The dress comes in 12 individual colors, with panties that you can turn on and off, grab it in the fatpack to get access to 4 exclusive patterns.

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.

Shoes: *NEW GIFT*  Breathe – Lola Heels

At the Movies

Today’s blog was not inspired by a song, not the title, not anything. Honestly, I wasn’t a 100% sure what to call this one, then I remembered the old acronym K.I.S.S. Also, I got an amazing build from a fantastic creator and I wanted to be able to show it all off, so this is a very different blog from my usual style.

KraftWork created this amazing theater, and as of the writing of this blog the event it was originally scheduled to be released at has been delayed. Draftsman has been rescheduled for April 20, 2017. When it opens I will provide the LM.

Setting: KraftWork – Palace Movie Theater – Draftsman

Stepping through the doors of the theater your eyes are instantly drawn to the marquee and the candy bar, so many choices which one to take? At least you can look good while deciding.
Blueberry released an absolutely amazing hoodie-style, cropped jacket for Collabor88 and as with anything Blueberry, I had to get the fatpack. Her color options, and fatpack exclusive options make it so worth it. Blueberry is a perfectionist, she will not release anything that is not 100%.

Riot, I don’t know how I’d never heard of this amazing clothing company until Ana mentioned her to me a few weeks ago, now I’m a total addict.

I had this amazing outfit all picked out and had no shoes, can’t very well go to the movies barefoot, so I popped on over to Breathe, I did a quick scan and my eyes fell on these amazing high-heeled boots. Individual color skipped, fatpack purchased and I am not sorry.

Shoes: Breathe – Julia Boots

My mother may very well beat me because I forgot to list the poses, so addendum to previous post. The all new Viper coming to Pretty Things today is a 5 pose pack with mirrors for only 300L. That’s less than 50L a pose. They are fabulous, bento compatible poses and so much fun.

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.

Midnight Garden

She stands there, a small smile on her face as she watches her new puppy chase the butterflies in the garden, stopping every once in a while to bark at the pot people strewn over the lawn, she jumps and leaps, barking excitedly. So free and happy in her new home.

So as stated in previous posts, I am not a decor blogger, but I’m trying really hard to get better at it, especially since Goose gave me a chance when I had little to no experience with decor. I have a couple of things from Goose to share today, one old and one new.

The beautiful gazebo is a brand new release for Cosmopolitan Sales Room from February 13-26 and is perfect with it’s weathered paint. It is slightly small and I did resize it to make the furniture fit, you just have to make sure that you change the vertical and horizontal scales back to 1 or the textures are off.

Gazebo: Goose – Weathered Garden Kiosk – Cosmopolitan

The second item from Goose is actually a gacha that came out a few months ago. You can play to win for 6 commons and 2 rares, they are so much fun I couldn’t resist putting them in my midnight garden.

OK, I have to admit I’ve been eyeballing this hair since the moment I landed at Hairology and everything rezzed in and I saw it. No.Match does some amazing hairs and this one is no exception. One thing I did notice new, at least with this hair, is they’ve added an essentials pack! I was so happy because one day I’m blond and the next red, so I love having the option. I’ve never seen the essentials pack with any other hair so I have to think this is new.

So I have to come clean, I totally applied to blog for Lumae and only have one skin from her that I received when I blogged for an event, but I want to show how serious I am so I dug through my massive inventory and found it. Lumae released a special version of her Eirtae skin called Showgirl. The difference is it comes with an eye shadow and lipstick but is still just as stunning as the original. The freckles are sprinkled heavily and it’s such a gorgeous skin I’m so glad I pulled it out to share with the world again. This skin comes with a body HUD and a head HUD in 4 skin tones, it also comes with TMP appliers and system skins. There is a freckled and plain version of each tone built into the HUD. You can get all this for only 850L!

My Give a Damn’s Busted

The pizza deliver boy left some time ago, she glances at the saying in the lid of the cold pizza box, scoffing at how true it is “People Disappoint, Pizza is Eternal” it says and she is finding that more and more true by the moment. She puffs on her cigarette, glaring at the burning ember on the end, wishing she could crush it out in his stupid face. She taps the fingers of her other hand on her knee, he was only 2 hours late, but she didn’t care anymore.

“My give a damn’s busted” she mutters as she stands, dropping the cigarette and crushing it under the platform of her stiletto heels, turning she heads inside, leaving the cold pizza for the neighborhood mutts.

It took me 3 and a half hours to find all the right stuff for this blog. I had one idea and when that didn’t pan out I went a different direction. My first stop was to Bad Unicorn because I really needed this specific backdrop, none of the others would do but this set the tone for what I had in mind. While there I did join the group, it’s free by the way, so I could play the group only pizza gacha as well. Bad Unicorn has some pretty awesome stuff and I think I’ll be shopping there more often for my decor needs.

The Hype-Beast Backdrop gacha is a set of 7 different mesh backdrops, with built in resizers, all are perfectly crafted and great for setting the scene. There are 6 commons and 2 rares and are only 75L a pull.

The pizza gacha was a special reward for reaching 2000 likes on Facebook, only group members can play but as I said it’s a free group and only 20L a pull. This is a limited time gacha, you have until February 28th to get your heart shaped pizza. 10 total pizzas to win!

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. Today I’m covering Tiffany Designs release especially for Valentine’s Day.

Divia comes in 10 individual colors with a gorgeous gold lace bodice and a beautiful mermaid style skirt. It comes with a chest accessory, 2 different kinds of headpieces (not pictured), earring (not pictured) and necklace and has appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMD and Omega.
