I have always loved this song, Santana’s guitar playing is magical. He is definitely in my top 10 guitar players of all times. I had a hard time naming this blog honestly, but when I saw this song I knew it was perfect.

This pose from Something New is so much fun, it comes with the chair, cards, cane, and dove for a perfectly magical pose. This pose is available right now at TWE12VE which opens the 12th of every month at 12 noon.

I woke up to an invite on Facebook to a store I’d never heard of, I scrolled through the feed and really liked what I saw. I found out this store had a new release at Tres Chic so I popped on over to grab it.

It comes with the hoodie, top, and dress in 5 colors or in a fatpack with all of them.

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.

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.

Numb

On July 20, 2017, the world lost one of the most influential musicians of my generation, Chester Bennington was found hanged in his home in California and for me, this was one of the hardest deaths I’ve had to figure out how to cope with. Picking a song from Linkin Park to go along with the styling in this blog is much harder than you’d ever think.  For me, every song they ever wrote was about breaking free of the box that holds you, becoming yourself, healing the wounds and fighting to be who and what you are meant to be. Linkin Park has been a huge influence on my life for 20 years and knowing that I will never again hear Chester belt out in his very unique voice a new tune that inspires you breaks my heart.

Indie Teepee is open right now and KraftWorks is there with this all new stage. I love this and it fits in so well with my tribute to Chester. The world is not a box is what the stage screams, with a rezzer to build it and a HUD to change the lighting with 9 colors there are so many things you can do with this stage, the possibilities are endless.

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.

When I was a kid, Cocktail came out, the hit song from The Beach Boy, Kokomo was part of the soundtrack and it was forever emblazoned in my mind with escaping and living your dreams. I got this set from KraftWork and immediately thought of beautiful beaches, crisp white sand, the waves gently licking at my feet. My perfect escape. I’m working on a plan to get where I really want to be in RL and the first step was finding a job that won’t make me eat, sleep, and breath it. That done, next, I am going to fix my credit, get a few other things I’ve put off taken care of and by the time my youngest daughter graduates high school I should be well on my way to living the life I was meant to live.

First up, I want to cover the featured pic of this blog, since that is where you can see the amazing beach burger shack created by the one and only KraftWork.

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.

It’s the end of the month and I am sitting here, digging through my inventory, looking at all the amazing things the creators have sent out in blogging groups and I feel no inspiration. Not because the stuff they send is bad or because I don’t want to blog, but it’s simply a matter of I’ve taken on more than I can chew and have fallen behind. Upon speaking to a blogger friend, we’ve decided it must be spring fever. This winter was so long and dreary and now the sun is shining and the urge to be doing anything but sitting at a computer is overwhelming. I am having to make some very difficult decisions on the groups that I blog for, as I don’t feel I am representing them properly. I don’t want to “drop” anyone but at the same time, I cannot give them the coverage they deserve.
What’s worse is a group that I would die to blog for opens apps and I put one in and then feel immediately guilty because I’m not even covering the groups that have entrusted me. Blogging is a tough gig, one that I love and thrive on usually but also one I am having to take a hard look at. I have spent the better part of the past year, on my blogging platform, avoiding interactions with people all in the name of building my blog, it has been a lonely existence but blogging was everything to me. It’s time to take a step back and re-evaluate. There are many creators that I could never leave and so much more I feel guilty for contemplating leaving, but I am honestly doing them a disservice by not giving them the blogging coverage that they deserve.

Today I have chosen to include some items that are not from a sponsor’s store as well as some items that are. Essentially getting back to my roots of blogging. Uber opened on May 25 and yes I got in immediately and got the items that I wanted, here it is 3 days later and I am finally getting around to posting the pictures I took for this blog. Masoom is at Uber with this amazing new dress and from the moment I saw the WIP I knew I would own it. This gown is materials enabled and sparkles and shines when you have advanced lighting on. It is truly a stunning gown. I bought it in two colors even though I seriously debated buying the fatpack. There is also an optional necklace available for purchase.

These eyebrows come in one HUD with 3 colors, one is tintable to make them match your hair color and also comes with an eyebrow shaper (not pictured). These eyebrows are available for purchase individually for Catwa and Lelutka only.

Zombie Suicide is also at Applique with a fabulous set of eyeshadows, there are two versions included in the HUD, with a tattoo and without. I chose the without because it didn’t exactly match my look. These eyeshadows are fabulous and have 10 colors included for Catwa and Lelutka.

Alright, so I made it through another blog, please don’t think that this is a negative posting, in fact, it’s the opposite. I am simply stating my concerns, my thoughts, and my feelings. Trying to work through my block in my way. I am honored to blog for the designers that I do and hope that future designers don’t look at this and think “this girl is bipolar, we don’t want her”. Sometimes we get overwhelmed and with no one to talk to about your feelings it can get crushing. So you, my dear reader, are my sounding board. Thank you for making it to the end with me, if you’re still here. <3

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.

Enchantment has opened it’s magical doors once again with some amazing creations from some of the best designers in all of Second Life. Nantra is there with Rapunzel’s tower. 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.

Don’t Leave

Spring is in the air, a time of renewal and rebirth and what better way to do that than treat yourself to a whole new look? Absolut Creation, the makers of Adam and Eve bring you the EVE’olution bento mesh head, the beta version only from Absolut Creation.

Absolut Creation, in the wake of the mesh body craze, created a full mesh body for men and women. It included hands, feet, skins and so many other features. They were fairly inexpensive compared to other mesh body kits out there and included far more. Being Omega compatible meant that you could wear skins, polishes, etc to match your tastes as well.

One tiny issue with Eve is that there are few clothes made out there specifically for the body, but the alpha layer options and the ability to use Omega appliers makes it slightly easier. In this picture, I’m wearing a standard-sized, fitmesh dress and it looks superb. The dress my MoOH! is available at the main store on a 50% discount, making it only 75L until April 20. It comes in fitmesh sizes XXS-L, standard sizes XXS-L, Slink, and Maitreya.
