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!

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.

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?

Crying in the Club

With the latest terror attack in London, there are questions swirling around in my brain. Why is there so much hate, why do people have to be so cruel? What did those people do to earn this horrific death? Absolutely nothing is the answer, this is the sins of the father visiting the son so to speak. I wish I could just make peace and friendship a thing, get rid of all the hate, racism and bigotry that is in the world. I wasn’t raised to hate, I was raised with respect and love and these tales of terror just really make no sense to me.
I didn’t start this blog with the intention of voicing my thoughts on the horrors around the world, but sometimes you just have to get it off your chest. On a positive note, I was scrolling through my Blogotex dashboard yesterday, the new feature allows you to see all your designers, open applications, and rejections in one place. I applied to Lybra, never expecting to get accepted because let’s be honest. I never think I’m going to be accepted, it’s how I keep going. I had been waiting to see who Lybra had chosen as a blogger since I knew it was coming fairly quickly. I scrolled to the spot where my open applications were and it was gone so I immediately scrolled to the rejections and it wasn’t there either. I start looking through my list of designers and there is Lybra, I about had a heart attack! I am so excited and honored to blog for such an amazing brand.

Limit8 is still going on right now and Lybra is there with two creations. Milly is the non-limited dress and comes in 10 colors or a fatpack with 16 colors. This dress is so cute with the lace overlay skirt and I couldn’t wait to put it on and show it all to you. The Limit8 version is called Gabriella, it has 16 colors and is completely limited. If you want the Gabriella you have to go get it now before the event ends.

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.

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.

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.

I have a vacation this week, as of today I will have no children, no husband, and no job to deal with. To me this is a real vacation, I don’t need to go anywhere. I’ve been at my job for 2 years and this is the first real vacation I’ve had, a day off here or there or 4 days off with the influenza being the only break I’ve had. What this means is lots of time to catch up on blogging, maybe do a little housework and just not have any responsibilities other than those that I want.

Chemical Princess has released this brand new dress for the Tie Me Up event, this dress is very different than her typical dresses in the fact that there are color options, amazing colors. There are 6 transparent, 6 non-transparent, 5 see-through mesh patterns, 7 solid trims, and 7 mesh trims.

Yeah, I did it! Sue me! This song is annoyingly catchy and to be honest, I still jam out to it when I hear it, sing along, the whole nine yards. The real reason for the name of this blog is the pose. When I saw it I knew I wanted to use it.

The background was easy, once I’d decided on a pose. I bought the fatpack of backgrounds from Minimal at last month’s Uber and I hadn’t yet used this one so I had to, the only other one I haven’t used yet is the urinal and tbh I can’t figure out what to do with it, so it’ll get used eventually I’m sure.
