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.

Something Just Like This

With only a few days left in my current job, I am actually finding it harder and harder to put up with the ignorant, self-entitled people that come into the store where I work. Those that feel that they can do whatever they want and not face any consequences and that the company is responsible for the inattentiveness. *SIGHS* They exist everywhere, real life, Second Life, in every country in the world and there is nothing you can honestly do about it because those people will NEVER be wrong.
What I do, what I always do when I’m feeling a bit blah is take some pictures in Second Life. I may not be perfect at it but I think I’m pretty good, at least I try my best to showcase the amazing creations that are given to me or bought by me. The designers in SL have to deal with the entitled people that I mentioned before, constantly under fire for one indiscretion or another, a slight that only a few people see. For me, I see amazing items that I could never make myself and I am so honored to be able to share them with my readers. Before sending hateful or ignorant messages to a creator ask yourself one question “can you do it better or can you do it at all?” if the answer is “NO” then be kind in your questions and comments to creators.
Today I have an amazing dress from ChicModa to share with you, this dress is available at the current round of Cosmopolitan and is available in 10 individual colors and a fatpack. The tie and knot are able to be textured individually from the dress to create a completely unique look.

Kokomo

When I was a kid, Cocktail came out, the hit song from The Beach Boy, Kokomo was part of the soundtrack and it was forever emblazoned in my mind with escaping and living your dreams. I got this set from KraftWork and immediately thought of beautiful beaches, crisp white sand, the waves gently licking at my feet. My perfect escape. I’m working on a plan to get where I really want to be in RL and the first step was finding a job that won’t make me eat, sleep, and breath it. That done, next, I am going to fix my credit, get a few other things I’ve put off taken care of and by the time my youngest daughter graduates high school I should be well on my way to living the life I was meant to live.

First up, I want to cover the featured pic of this blog, since that is where you can see the amazing beach burger shack created by the one and only KraftWork. This is available right now at Knot & Co until September. It is all one piece and comes with the sandbox with chairs situated in front of the shack. The whole things is just fabulous.

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.

and then he kissed me

Since I was about 12 years old, Adventures in Babysitting has been one of my absolutely favorite movies, the opening scene with Chris getting ready for her anniversary date with her sleazy boyfriend was iconic to me. I wanted to find someone that would make me that happy and the song would play on repeat in my head. To be completely honest when I got this pack from Chop Shop, opened it and tried it on this scene played in my mind so you’re welcome to everyone who watches the clip below and has this song stuck in their head for the remainder of the day!

I would have bought this, but I was conversing with the owner of !Chop Shop! through a Facebook post, she’d made a comment about the lack of blogger applications in a recent blogger roundup. I had seen the app but I also had NEVER blogged anything from !Chop Shop! and didn’t feel right applying to a group I knew nothing about. She offered to send me a blogger pack and my personal ethics, I automatically declined. So here I am, I will be perfectly honest this is a trial run for !Chop Shop! and I love this outfit. At Vintage Fair this bra is available in 8 color combinations and comes with matching panties (not pictured) for Maitreya and Belleza appliers as well as standard layers, the Dotty shorts come in three colors and are also made for Belleza and Maitreya. This set is so fun and sexy I’m honored Asy gave me a chance to blog them for her. There is not currently an inworld store but make sure to find !Chop Shop! at events and on the MP.

Heaven nor Hell

Sometimes I’m wondering if we are in fact living in hell because it sure seems heaven is very far away. Time after time I get a text or call that something else has gone horribly wrong, I should be locked up in a mental institution after the past few weeks in RL but here I am, strong and holding on, being there for those who are more affected than I am personally. I hate being a downer, bringing my problems to others but sometimes my strength is ONLY there because of those I surround myself with. Their strength helps me continue on.

This is kind of a funny story, I went to the Lybra Blogotex to grab a really pretty gown they have for me to blog, I click the button to deliver it and I look over at the delivered item and smacked my forehead, I’d clicked the wrong button. Lybra only allows one item at a time so I decided I would rock this blog anyway and I’ll blog the gown next time. This outfit was part of last month’s Gacha Garden and as of this writing is not available at the inworld location. This outfit is so sexy though and I’m excited to bring it to you. There are 5 commons and one rare each available in 4 colors. If this gacha becomes available in the store I will update this blog. For now happy searching the MP for the amazing pieces.

Image Essentials is at Jersey Shore with this brand new set of 4 Bento poses with mirrors, for only 300L you get all 8 poses. Bento poses do require a Bento enabled viewer and Bento hands for the full effect, but if you don’t have the hands yet no fear, you can still use these poses they just won’t pose your hands.

I needed the perfect backdrop for this picture and I remembered seeing a gacha machine at Kustom9 from Bueno. I wanted a specific one and I got it on the second try so it was meant to be. This gacha includes 9 commons and no rares. I love backdrops, they help me create the feeling that I want to portray in all my photography.

I’m so lucky to have a boyfriend who likes to shop as much as I do and who sees things he likes and points them out to me, he actually found this hair from Elua and being a fan of Elua I snatched this right up. This hair is actually two parts, one parted to the right and one to the left (and I just realized I’m an idiot and shouldn’t do pictures at 4 am because I wore both pieces to create a whole different look *smh*) Honestly though I like how it gave me a messy look, does that count?

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. When they are all rezzed, change the panel textures through a touch menu. You can resize the panels to fit your needs and then save them in the rezzer and delete the rezzer for an easy wall. 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. I popped over the other morning and immediately saw these fabulous shoes from NOIR. The vintage style heels with the color change HUD to mix and match the main part of the shoe and the bow is just fabulous. I’m in love with these shoes.

I have been waiting for the right blog to drop in my lap so I could show you this hair again, it was available at an event a few months ago and being the #Foxy hair junkie I am, I had to grab it.
