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!

The end of something is the hardest thing on the planet, some take it in stride, act like nothing bad has happened. Other people take it hard, letting it affect every part of their being. I would like to think there are miracles in this world but there is more evidence to the contrary.

I woke up this morning to a notification on Facebook that my previous blog post had been marked as spam or against community standards and was removed, there is nothing in that blog or picture that is against community standards and sometimes Facebook makes me want to rip my hair out. I’ve countered them as it not being spam but who knows when they will pull their heads out and stop attacking people who portray themselves as avatars on Facebook. I don’t know about you, but I spend far more time on my SL Facebook than I do on my RL Facebook, I click ads, by things, watch videos, see what’s trending on this page than I ever will on my RL page.
I didn’t start out taking these pictures yesterday with the intent of slamming Facebook or the community standards protocols but it is what it is. What I did intend on doing is posting a picture of some amazing finds from Vintage Fair, Collabor88 and so much more, so that’s what I am going to do. I have to admit that I love being a blogger, one of the best parts is getting early access to events, shopping lag-free and getting my hands on the amazing creations that Second Life designers put together. I don’t get early access to everything, but that’s ok I still love shopping, it is definitely one of my biggest hobbies in Second Life. Blogging for me isn’t being sponsored and getting freebies, it is an outlet for my photography and a way to give you a glimpse of the stunning things that people make that I could not do in a million years, I know it’s not my forte to create, I’ve tried.

Vintage Fair opened on June 10 and there are some absolutely amazing things. This dress is just one example of the things you can find at Vintage Fair. Kaithleen’s released this dress for Vintage Fair and I have always loved the Rockabilly, Pinup, 50’s style. I had to have this dress. Each color comes with a solid and polka dot version with a HUD to change the frill. It is an absolutely stunning rendition.

With the right dress found I needed the perfect shoes to compliment it and who else but Breathe would have just the right shoes? I love these shoes so much I skipped right over the individual colors and went straight for the fatpack, I love shoes so much, maybe it’s because I can only wear flats in RL. Whatever my shoe obsession is creators like Breathe bring my love of shoes to life.

My first go round of the Vintage Fair I saw this cool pose with an amazing 50’s cherry red T-bird. I didn’t buy it when I saw it because I wasn’t sure at first when or how I would use it, but then I got my hands on the Lucky’s Drive-In set from unKindness at Collabor88.  I went back to Vintage knowing what I was looking for, but I couldn’t for the life of me remember who had made this pose. Two days I wandered aimlessly, (ok nothing so dramatic) to find the stunning T-bird.

This is an omega head applier and does include the omega body appliers.

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.

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.

 I don’t pull poor Manni out of inventory nearly enough, but when I saw the awesome new stuff from Riot, Stealthic and !NFINITY I knew hy was about to make an appearance.

Today I am going to start by covering the location and the pose since they are interconnected. Something New has an amazing photo area available right at the sim, you need to be a group member to use the area but the great news is that it’s free to join. When I had decided on my look there was no other place I could think of to take my picture and no question as to what pose I was going to use. Something New is involved in enMESHed, a monthly subscription box is available for preorder through the whole month, then it is delivered to you on the first of the following month. You can pre-order your box for only 900L. This pose is from the June enMESHed box. Once the box has been delivered you cannot buy it again, so it pays to pre-order.

If you haven’t heard about the Signature Event by now you’re living in a cave, in the middle of the desert. Signature Event is a monthly Men’s event, that’s right guys you have another event with some amazing designers. Riot is there with an all new set of swim trunks. I love Riot because she really listens to her customers and works hard to give them what they ask for. The fatpack of these shorts is enormous. 28 solid colors, 15 fatpack exclusive colors and complete control over how they look. If you choose to only buy one color you will have the ability to change only the waistband color and turn the tie on and off, the fatpack is so worth all the extra options. As with everything I’ve ever tried from Riot, the fit is next to none, her rigging is flawless with no gaps or bulges.

I have been blogging for Stealthic since around this time last year, I bought a hair at Hair Fair, called Daughter and fell absolutely in love with it. I took a chance and messaged the creator and then the blog manager, asking if there was a slight chance that I could blog for them, officially. They said yes and I have never regretted my decision to blog for such an amazing designer. When I started seeing men’s hair posted on my Facebook page but they weren’t showing up in my Blogotex page I contacted Stealthic, because I really wanted to be able to show off the amazing hair being created. What I love about Stealthic is the style HUD included. When you buy one hair it’s like getting four, what could be better? This hair, actually inspired by Gac Akina, the creator of Stray Dog, will be available at The Men’s Department on June 5.

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.

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.

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 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.

There are so many amazing skin and makeup designers involved in the subscription box and the fact that I get to show their amazing creations is just awe inspiring to me. #adored is in May’s Catwa Powder Pack with a fantastic set of eyeshadow. It comes with 24 colors built into the HUD that is compatible with Catwa and Omega.

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.

I blogged items from Indulge Temptation when I was part of the We Love to Blog group, I liked her stuff so much that I applied to blog for her personally and I have never regretted that decision. Indulge Temptation is at Swank with these super cute, cuff style bracelets and today is the last day you can grab them during the event. There are 13 different package options with so many metal and gem options you’ll want to grab them all.

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.

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.

When Will My Life Begin

I’ve always loved the Rapunzel story, the true love that led them together, the wicked mother that forced a life of solitude for eternal youth. I can’t even imagine having hair long enough to climb a tower with or the headache that would have come with it.

This prop has 6 poses +mirrors built into it for all your photography needs, the poses are fun from standing back praying for your prince to come, to watching him at the bottom of the tower, puzzled as to how to reach you.
