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.

West End released this Daenerys-inspired shape last month and I like it so much I decided to show it off again. Made exclusively for Catwa Catya bento mesh head it is so pretty. My version is not modifiable but the one you purchase you will have the ability to change it up some if you so choose. The shape out of the box is perfection though, even if I do like a little more curve.

Future World

The past couple of week has really had me on edge in RL, from a husband that went and spent every last penny we had to a manager meeting where they taught us how to micromanage our people more through a system called delegation. This had me thinking of my future and what I really want from it, how I want to get there and what I need to do to get there. Becoming a criminal in the future isn’t what I envision but this was sure a fun photo to shoot!

So I got this amazing outfit to blog from Wicca’s Wardrobe and when my boyfriend Maxe saw it, he immediately said “I see a motorcycle chase, your hair blowing in the wind with a cop car chasing you” I took it one step further with a hoverbike I’d won during one of the Arcade round and begged my mom to make me a pose that worked with it. So this is what happens when an idea is put into my head and I run with it!
This outfit is from The Gacha Gardens and as previously stated by Wicca’s Wardrobe. There are 3 rares and 17 commons to win from this machine, the rares include a HUD for color change to match each one of the common items and each common item comes with a metal change HUD.

Hopeful: Anti-Bullying Awareness

I recently saw a post on Facebook that completely made me ill, the level of degradation, the words of hate in the name of funny just made me angry. I was so angry that I went and bought the outfit that was the pun in their private/public joke.
It is NEVER ok to bully anyone. Whether it is a peer, a designer in Second Life, or one child to another. We can all do our part to stop bullying. My part was “applauding” these people for their hateful comments, I fought back with kindness and then I supported the designer that was the brunt of their joke.

This is the outfit in question, the one made fun of and the comments were so rude and hateful that they don’t deserve to be revisited. Personally, I love this outfit so much I went to Collabor88 and bought the entire fatpack of both the top and the shorts. I think she did a fabulous job of creating this set.

Outfit: Atomic – Chill Out Sweatshirt and Shorts – Collabor88

I also visited Shoetopia and grabbed these awesome trainers from Vale Koer. As with any product by this fabulous designer, the HUD is extensive and gives you so many options of how to wear them, including flat and tip-toe.

Project Se7en opened today and with it came this awesome hair from Tableau Vivant, the short, wispy style is so much fun.

Hair: Tableau Vivant – Thea [frizzy chic] Naturals I – Project Se7en

This skin is from another creator, on that I do officially blog for and one I consider a friend. She’s been told her skins are horrible and that she should just give up. I, on the other hand, find her skins stunning, fun, and unique. The options that come with Lumae skins are by far some of the best. Plain and freckled, appliers for just about everything out there. The prices are extremely reasonable and there are 10 skin tone varieties to choose from. This particular skin is called Ruby and is available at The Avenue. Makeup free and ready for your Catwa only head, it’s perfect.

I love Mesange eyes and these are an older set but they are still so perfect. 15 different eye colors to choose from or a fatpack that includes all you will never need another set of eyes again unless you buy another Mesange pack.

I’m Odd

Sometimes you have an idea and things just fall into place, little or no effort on your part and this blog is one such occurrence. I had an early day at work, dinner already in the crockpot and so I had time on my hands, I’ve been wanting to get to this next outfit for a few days but, yeah Arcade got a hold of me. <.< Now that I am back in the real world and trying desperately to stay out of The Arcade (yes I might have a gacha addiction, but they don’t have an anonymous group for that yet) I have some awesome newness for you!

1313 Mockingbird Lane is at the newly opened Totally Top Shelf, this event runs from March 3  until March 24. The outfit includes the bodysuit, top hat, flamingo cane, floating cards and the mouthy watch. The boots are sold separately and come in 4 colors. Both items are on sale for a 20% reduction over normal price.

The gacha is loaded with 4 different hair types all perfect for photography and come in various HUD options as well. There are a total of 27 commons and 3 rares to be won.

When I saw the outfit from 1313 I knew exactly where I wanted to take the picture, at Image Essentials Studios. Wonderland is one of the built in studios and has 15 poses built into it. While there don’t forget to go into the store and see the amazing poses being sold for men, women and couples as well as several props.

I am so excited about this next item. 7 Deadly Skins has been hard at work totally revamping her applier HUDs and adding a new skin tone as well. The Omega HUDs have been completely reworked to include a face and body applier all on one, they are just regular body skin tones in the HUD but the face is either regular, beauty marks, light freckled or heavy freckled. The all new body appliers will be sold separately and will include all 4 types of skin per tone. They are fast and easy to use and I’m absolutely in love with the new system. These new items will be available at the Skin Fair 2017 starting March 10! The LM to Skin Fair will be provided on March 10.

I do not typically write two blogs in one day, unless I get some amazing stuff that inspires me of course. I got home from a funeral in real life last night and logged in and Cristian Ironblood of Ignition Art and Ines Lauria of Be.You did just that. They tempted me with some new goodies.

Storm Warning 1

I am pleased to have been accepted as a blogger for both Be.You and Ignition Art and this is my first official blog featuring both creators.

First up is this awesome dress from Ines and Be.You. The dress comes with a 9 color change hud. It’s super cute and I paired it with a set of leggings from !:Lybra:!  a free gift they had during the December round of On9. Since the December round is over you can’t get them as a gift anymore but you can still purchase them from the Lybra MP store. They are available for SLink and Maitreya only.

With the awesome scarf from Ignition Arts I needed the perfect hair, so I dug into my inventory for my Arcade prizes and came up with this super cute Tableau Vivant hair. It was an Arcade prize so is not available there any longer and as of today was not available in store, but keep your eyes peeled because this gacha was worth the pull.

The scarf from Ignition Art is unisex, with the option of right or left wear and a color change hud that will help you match any outfit. 14 different color options are available. Definitely pick this one up.

I love septum rings, have started quite a collection to be fair and when I saw this one at FaMESHed I had to tell myself “no” because it didn’t fit in with what I was working on at the time, but then I came up with this blog idea and justified grabbing another septum ring. It’s great, has a hud for 4 individual metal colors and the ring and logo are separate, so you can mix and match the colors to your hearts content.
