Two Fux

I started a new job this week, after 2 years of slaving my way through as a retail store manager I am now sitting at a teller window, way less hours, way less work and best of all WAY LESS STRESS! I know I didn’t get all the hair from Hair Fair 2017 blogged that I wanted to, although I still have some amazing hair to share and Hair Fair is now over but you will, in most cases, be able to go to the main store locations and pick up the amazing hair designs from some of the best creators in Second Life.

The July 2017 round of The Epiphany is happening right now and MInimal is back with another set of Illusions backdrops. There is 9 total to win, 1 rare and 8 commons. The rare, seen here, is a subway car and so well done as with all Minimal backdrops.

I love Foxcity and the poses are so unique and fun, right now you can go to The Chapter Four and hit the half price room and get two pose packs for half price, that’s 125L a piece. Stairs, a standing pose set, includes 7 poses in total, pose 4 you only get in the fatpack but it’s totally worth getting it. Each pose also has a mirror so you actually get 14 poses in total.

I love when two designers I not only adore but really, genuinely love their designs unintentionally put out something that creates a perfect outfit.

You have until July 23 to grab this at Cosmopolitan.

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.

If you haven’t made it to the Hair Fair 2017 yet you are missing out on some of the most amazing hairs I’ve seen in a long time, like this one from Iconic.

It also comes with a style HUD to change the bangs, so it’s really like getting two hairs for the price of one!

It’s no secret I love Image Essentials poses, not only because Kay Weston took in a poor, lonely girl and tried to teach her (and is still trying to teach her) how to take amazing photos.

I love this song because it’s telling you it’s ok not to be like everyone, that you can be different and it’s just fine. Too often in this world, we’re told we’re not good enough, that we need to be more like person A or why can’t you be like so and so? It’s alright to be different and it’s okay not to follow the crowd. More girls need to know that.

You know who really helps you be yourself, at least in Second Life? Riot. Seriously, her line of handmade, original mesh clothing is just amazing and I love this new tank top.

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 almost feel back to my old self, I’m blogging more frequently again, finding inspiration more and more and that makes me happy. Blogging has been a pretty large part of my life for over 2 years and every time I start to feel like I’m not good enough or that I’m talking to myself I have to take a step back, look at what amazing designers have entrusted me with their designs, the blogs I have written and the comments and encouragement I do get. I get over the slump and start again.

First up today I have the amazing contribution to June’s BishBox from none other than ChicModa. This is exclusive to the BishBox which you can pre-order clear up to the 20th of the month at noon when the box is released.

Some Beach

Life can take an unexpected turn, sometimes they are for the better and sometimes they put your whole world into a tailspin, leaving you to pick up the pieces of the puzzle, what is left of the life you once knew. Sometimes it would just be easier to run away, hide, pretend to be someone new, maybe disappear to some beach, somewhere.

My boyfriend is just as big a shopaholic as I am and we headed over to Kustom 9 the day it opened. While there we ran into Agata and the matching bikini and swim trunks they had on offer. We sat there and debated for a bit on which color to buy and decided that out of the 6 colors we would probably wear 4 of the colors regularly and that made our decision, fat pack it was. The women’s set is fitmesh and fits both Slink bodies as well as Maitreya.

This pose was part of the enMESHed monthly box for June 2017. enMESHed Monthly is a subscription box that you pre-order for 900L every month, it is then released on the first of the next month, packed full of amazing items from designers all over the grid. Something New released this pose with the June enMESHed Monthly box. It comes with the pose and inner tube.

It is no secret that I am a HUGE gacha addict and I went back to The Arcade, it’s still open until the end of the month so if you were waiting for the crush of people to fade away you can go now! I went back because I really wanted a few items I didn’t play for the first time around (first 3 times I went XD). Jian has two gacha machines at The Arcade, this one is the Cheeky Chihuahuas and includes 12 commons and 2 rare. I got both rares and I tell you what, I absolutely adore the little chihuahua in the blanket rare, but he didn’t feel like coming to the beach with me, so I brought his brothers.

I love Stealthic Hair and the inclusion of a style HUD just makes them all the more fun, it’s like getting 4 hairs for the price of one every time. This is an older hair but it was perfect for the look I was going for.

No Miracles

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.

Dark Passions Events bring you Midsummer Enchantment and 1313 Mockingbird Lane is there with this brand new gacha set. The dress is the gacha and has 13 commons in 4 colors of top and skirt and 2 rares a black top and skirt. The wings are the 5L hunt prize and the horns are discounted 25% during 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.

I’ve been holding on to this backdrop from Seul for a minute or two, waiting for the right moment to present itself. Getting this outfit from !Chop Shop! gave me the super cute vintage outfit and the song popped in my head I knew how the rest of it would look.

The only thing left was finding a pose that showed me getting dressed, that’s harder than you think but I finally found one from Tabou Irresistible, it made me look like I was putting my stockings on.

Before I chose everything else I knew what hair I wanted and headed on over to Truth to grab it. This hair in curlers is perfect for the look I wanted to achieve. The HUD comes with numerous colors in the variety you choose as well as root options, there is also an option to change the curler colors.
