Bad Liar

Friday, September 22 marked the end of summer and the beginning of fall. So many people love autumn, the cooler nights, the smells and colors but to be perfectly honest I wish it could be summer year-round or at least a perfect 74F. The greatest part of fall, however, is the fashion. Cute boots, fun sweaters, and so much more.

I was looking for fall fashion inspiration for this blog and so I posted a query to Facebook, asking for new releases for fall. Kenadee Reign of Reign instantly self-promoted, she has no shame I tell you *giggles* but that is just fine because I had completely forgotten about this outfit available at this current round of The Arcade. I already had the boots and was looking for something to go with them. The Fall Essentials gacha includes 28 commons and 2 rares to collect. I didn’t get the rares and that’s ok because the dress and cardigan are perfection. The boots are available at N°21 and contains a color change HUD.

Truth has been one of my favorite hair stores in Second Life for a very long time, since the beginning of my SLife if truth be told. The new hairs from Truth include style HUDs with multiple options for a look unique to you. This hair comes with the hat and 4 hairstyles but you can wear it without the hat too. The hat has a HUD to change each part individually.

I chose my Lelutka Cate bento mesh head today so that I could remind you that the new Lelutka Powder Pack is available for pre-order and will release on October 1. If you pre-order you get the pack for only 1500L, wait and pay double. The designers involved in this pack bring you the very best appliers every month. September’s Lelutka pack included this gorgeous skin from Essences, lipgloss from Izzie’s and eyes and lashes from A R T E and so much more.

Ready for It?

Life is scary, it doesn’t always go as planned but you have to pull your big girl panties up and make the most out of each and every day. My life has drastically changed over the past 2 months and followers of my blog and my friends and family know exactly what I mean. I don’t go spreading drama for attention but I use this blog as a way to work through my thoughts. Right now I am taking each day, one day at a time and working towards my goals.

When I first saw this bubble coat from Sabotage I knew I had to blog it. It’s absolutely amazing and available right now at Tres Chic. You can purchase this coat in 9 individual colors for 400L each or grab the fatpack and get 4 additional colors all for the ultra low price of 2500L. Maitreya, Freya, and Slink Hourglass are included for women and Gianni for men.

Blueberry never fails to amaze me, the stuff that she creates is stunning. This is an outfit but is sold separately. The top comes in the full bodysuit, top only and tucked version. The pants have cutiebootie and BlueberryBooty included. I almost NEVER buy anything other than the fatpacks of Blueberry because the color options are out of this world and you get so many options.

While I was trying to decide on the pose that would work best to show off the coat, outfit, and shoes I went to Foxcity. I love Foxcity and own so many of her poses but was hoping something would jump out at me, well a pose didn’t but this backdrop sure did. Part of the KPOP gacha set, this white rare is just gorgeous. The fully mesh booth comes with a resize script built in. There are 7 commons, 2 rares and 1 ultrarare to win from this gacha. The pose is from Foxcity but it’s one I already had.

My resolve to stay away from gacha events never lasts long and even though I had already been to The Arcade once I needed to go back to see if I could get lucky enough to win the rare shoes from Breathe and I DID!  This particular gacha has one common in 18 colors and two rare fatpacks. I just love Breathe shoes.

I started to take my pictures, everything was perfect and then I realized I had a hair I’d already blogged once and I very rarely do that. I like to bring my readers new things, not recycle the same thing over and over. Hairology to the rescue. This hair is not the exclusive at Hairology but you can grab it right now during this round. No.Match always has fantastic hairs.

Secrets

Have you ever watched a magician? I mean really watched them, trying to see the slight of hand, the trick and figure out how in the world they do it? No matter how closely I watch I can never see how they do it, I know it’s a trick but is it? Is there magic in the world and only some very special people can tap into it? We may never know.

This amazing pose from Something New inspired my look and post today, A Magician’s Card is a prop and pose set that you can get right now at TWE12VE. TWE12VE is a monthly event that opens the twelveth of every month at twelve noon. This pose is so much fun I just had to use it today! I did modify the pose to bend my knee, but other than that it’s exactly the way it comes out of the box.

When I’d decided on the pose to use I knew immediately what I wanted to wear and headed on over to Frou Frou, an all-new, all mesh lingerie event. Astralia is there with this sexy corset and panty set available in four colors or a fatpack (psst…get the fatpack you won’t be sorry). This is just a fabulous outfit and is fit for Maitreya only.

These shoes were exactly what I needed to complete my look and since they’re from MODA you already know that the colors are off the charts. MODA’s color HUD always includes so many options to mix and match and make them your own. The cute little corset ribbons on the front and the back absolutely knock these shoes onto another level. These shoes are an update, so go to the main store and click redelivery if you bought the fatpack previously.

I got creative with my eye makeup and sometimes with these mesh heads, it’s not easy. I had to apply the shadow color to the lower layer and the liner layer to the upper layer to create the look. It takes some doing but it can be done. I couldn’t choose between the Zibska eyeshadow and the MUDSKIN liner so I did both.

When I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, a friend of mine took me to see Styx and Toto in concert. At 21 years old that was the coolest concert I’d ever been to and I had so much fun even at 4 months pregnant. It was a cool September night 18 years ago and I will never forget how much fun that night was. This song has always been one of my favorites, and when I got the rare item from Belle Epoque I knew exactly what I was going to do.

First, this dress! From the moment I saw the ad on Facebook, I knew I had to have it. It is just absolutely stunning. This rare dress comes with a color change HUD with 6 textures built in. It is just truly a masterpiece and I’m so glad I won it from PocketGacha. Haven’t heard of that? Well, you get a free HUD from the Marketplace or any of the participating store, then you go home. That’s it. The day it opens you add your HUD, and play the gacha machines built into the HUD, no trying to TP into packed sims, no lag, just the privacy and comfort of your own home.

I cannot stay away from Foxcity and the absolutely amazing poses she creates, this round of Tres Chic brings two new pose sets and when you buy the greedy pack you get projectors as well that give you lines and dots, I chose not to use them because they didn’t really suit the look of this blog but the poses were exactly what I needed.

I’ve been a blogging whirlwind the last few days, I tend to blog when I’m stressed or depressed and some of my best pictures come out of this mood. I won’t go into details but some stuff has happened in the last few days and I’m really looking at myself and my life, for what it is. For the moment you get lots of blogs and photos.

I knew I wanted to do this prop and pose set from Something New, coming up with the location and outfit was another thing. This is a set of 3 poses with a fidget spinner included, well two spinners. It is available at the main store location for 50% off during the month of September.

Sorry Not Sorry

I had a fairly difficult childhood, not worse than some but definitely not the best. My father was abusive, my mother, although she tried was a drunk and ended up losing custody of us when I was 6. When I was 12 my father remarried and my grandparent’s thought it was best we go live with him. I don’t know if they forgot about the times he tried to kill my mother or what but we packed up and moved to Texas, a whole other world compared to small town Idaho. It only took a few months for the abuse to start and although most of it wasn’t physical the emotional and mental abuse that rained down on my head shaped me into the person I am today. I struggle constantly not to hear his voice in my head calling me fat, lazy and stupid, telling me I will amount to nothing. I usually do pretty well but there are times that my insecurities rear their ugly head, causing me to question everything. Just know my insecurities are a reflection of me, not you.  This happened over 20 years ago but I still fight every day to win an unseen battle with an abusive man. So, I’m sorry, not sorry, if I don’t fit into the box you made for me.

So Lybra is at the newest round of FaMESHed with this amazing dress, I honestly couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Available in 11 colors with no fatpack available this dress is absolutely stunning, from the super low-cut front to the spine exposing back. I seriously had a really hard time choosing a color they are all so exquisite.

The dress was the easy part, choosing the rest of my look was not so much. I always worry about what shoes I want to wear and then I saw these fabulous boots from Mutresse available at Uber. It’s a 20 color mega pack and is fit for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza. Each part of the shoe can be colored individually to make them match your outfit, I chose black even if the light makes them look slightly off. I fell in love with these booties at first glance.

Crush

Having a crush is something everyone goes through in their life, from childhood until death. Having a crush on the person you’re in a relationship with is even better, because you know the crush is more than that. Every day I find another reason to crush on my sweet boyfriend. I’m not sure how I got so lucky to land a relationship with the boy of my dreams but I did. It really sucks when you have plans for a night out with your crush and they fall through, nothing like doing laundry instead of making out with your crush huh?

This is honestly one of those times that I don’t know where to start, everything I’m sharing today is so amazing. So I guess I’ll start with the background. Minimal was at the last round of The Epiphany with another set of Illusions backdrops, there were 9 in the set, one rare and 8 commons and they are absolutely incredible.

I love Blueberry and honestly, I don’t blog her stuff regularly, not because I don’t feel I can blog it well or that the stunning items she creates aren’t worth my time and effort, it’s completely the opposite to be perfectly honest. Blueberry is so popular EVERYONE wants to blog her, so for days after a release Facebook is inundated with blog posts featuring Blueberry, and although I love seeing them, I want to stand out from the crowd. Every once in a while though, the perfect item goes with my style and I must include it however. Today is no different, this top is out of this world. The HUD has so many colors including exclusive colors just for the fatpack, it comes with a top and dress option. If I could ask for one thing to be added to this outfit it would be a long skirt to wear to more formal location, because it truly is a stunning piece of work.

I chose the no brow option of the lovely Pumec skin so that I could show off the brows included in the Izzie’s pack this month. I love these natural looking brows and come in 15 colors. You seriously can’t go wrong with these lovely brows. Izzie’s pack also includes eyes and lipglosses, which are not featured on this blog.

Mudskin released an eye pack for this round of Powder Pack, they will only work with Lelutka mesh eyes and include 15 colors to choose from, or get funky and mix and match your eyes. Each eye has a separate applier so if you feel like it, you can wear two different eye colors.

Now or Never

The slump in the past few months is trying to work its way back in. My entire life has changed this year and my psyche isn’t sure how to handle it, you’d think writing would be a good way but I can’t find the words. In January I lost my dad, August brought a whole new slew of changes. I chose to ask my husband for divorce, my kids moved in with my mother so they might have better opportunities and my grandfather, the first man who ever showed me what a dad really was, lost his battle with cancer. I changed careers, maybe finding, finally, a career not just a job. All in all, this has been a very eventful year and I’m just trying to stay afloat.

Lybra is at the latest round of Uber, which started on August 25. This bodysuit and pant set is made for Maitreya only and comes in 11 colors. They are sold separately and the bodysuit comes with a HUD to control the bra colors, the pants includes a HUD to change the laces and metals. There is no fatpack with this set and each piece is available for 299L.

Once I picked the outfit I wanted to share with you the rest of the styling just fell into place. MODA is back at Kinky Event with these awesome heels. Available in a fatpack only, the color options will allow you to mix and match to your heart’s content. Fit for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink with an optional ankle lock, the metal heel with the spiked platform will make you look killer.

The scene was a little harder, I kind of had an idea of the setting I wanted so I started to search for backdrops. Pseudo released another set of backdrops for SaNaRae in July and it included a very nice gas station set. This gacha set has got 6 different backgrounds that you can get your hands on, 5 commons and 1 rare.

The motorcycle was made by a friend and is not currently available for purchase.

I am currently kind of stuck on featuring hairs made for men on women. This is another killer style from Stealthic and as with all new releases from Stealthic, it comes with a style HUD with toggle effects. You can make your hair move on its own, through four different styles. I chose the ombre HUD this time and this blond with pale blue tips is perfection.

7 Deadly Skins has a whole bunch of new skins coming our way. This one, Arnica, is coming to The Chapter Four in September. This applier is Omega based on the GA.EG Barbara mesh head, but as you can see it looks stunning on my Catwa Catya head. It comes in 6 tones and includes the body applier as well, all built into one convenient HUD.

Sometimes, as a blogger, trying to find the inspiration to bring amazing blogs, pictures, advertisements for the creators that entrust you with their beautiful creations can be extremely difficult. Honestly, I’ve been in a rut and I’ve had to force the last few posts in order to make the deadlines but this week I seem to have found a new joy in blogging again. I’m gonna run with it for as long as the creative juices flow.

I have been waiting for these shorts since Sassy released the WIP what seems like a MILLION years ago, the high-cut, high-waisted, vintage shorts are so super cute and are only available in August’s BishBox. Unfortunately, for fans of the BishBox, August will be the very last release. MadPea has decided to end this monthly subscription service. If you’d like to find out more visit MadPeaGames. These shorts come with a control HUD to change the shorts, button, and bow. There are 10 exclusive vintage prints, 10 non-exclusive colors, 10 buttons, and 10 bows. You can customize this to your heart’s content. If you want the BishBoxes get them before September 6 because after that they’ll be gone FOREVER!

Knowing what shorts I wanted to wear was easy, finding a top to compliment it was a little more difficult. I started scouring my blogger boxes, Blogotex, and my inventory when I found it. This cute top from MOoH! was perfect. MOoH! released this top for Designer Circle and it comes in two color palettes. Each pack has 15 color options and is only 99L during the event.

I don’t typically use multiple poses in one blog, but sometimes a picture calls for a different pose. Today I have not one but 3. Foxcity is at Limit8 with an all new backdrop and poses set. Sorry, everyone, the limited item is SOLD OUT, although it’s not a huge surprise. Satomi kills it every time with her items. The backdrop and poses set however is not limited so go grab it. The pose in this set is a past event and is available in the main store, the close up picture features a pose from Limit8 and the shoe pose is also from the older set.

Believe it or not this hair is what inspired this entire blog. Stealthic is releasing more men’s hair than women’s hair lately, great news for men, but it’s also great news for women who love short styles as well. This hair is brand new and was released for the newest round of N°21. It comes with a style HUD and includes the all new animation option. You can toggle the styles to sort through them naturally. It’s amazing.
