One More Light

I lost my grandfather Sunday, August 13, 2017, to his unending battle with cancer. It started as prostate cancer and moved into his bones, he was frail and fragile at the end and in so much pain. I’ve lost not one, but two of the most important men in my life this year, my step-father in January and now my grandfather. They taught me so much about life it’s hard to imagine them gone. The song at the end of this video is from Linkin Park, another great lost this year, Chester Bennington had a way of making you feel his music, you didn’t just listen to Linkin Park, you felt the emotions. This song is very emotional for me because the lights around me keep going out.

When I first saw that Reve Obscura was working on a brand new gacha set I knew it would be mine. A total of 6 poses with props in all with 5 commons and 1 rare and at only 50L a pull you definitely want to collect these. This one happens to be rare and it comes with the speaker, guitar, and cigarette. This pose set is available at the main store location.

I’ve said it before and probably will say it a lot, but I absolutely love when 2 creators make items that work so well together.

Xayalith, the top from Vinyl comes in 17 individual colors and the Jennifer Skinnies from Riot comes in 40 kinds of leather, 14 plaids, and 18 suedes. The HUD also includes 9 metal options. For both items, you can purchase them individually or as a fatpack.

West End Chloe is the shape that made me fall in L-O-V-E with my Catwa Catya head. Out of the box it is perfection, this one has some slight modifications but overall the face is mostly how it comes out of the box. I prefer a taller shape so I made my body a bit different.

Want You Back

Today I close a chapter of my life, ready, willing, able to take the bold move and try a new career it’s made me think of other choices I’ve made, the results that have come from those choices and what I need to do to take back my life.

Sometimes as we’re moving forward it’s hard not to look back and wonder “what if”. Sometimes, however, looking back can make you see how far you’ve come. This pose from Foxcity available at Tres Chic was perfect to portray the feeling I wanted to convey. It is part of an 2 part, 14 pose set. They are bento and do require a bento viewer and bento hands to be fully appreciated. Each pose is sold individually or you can grab the two fatpacks and get 2 fatpack only special poses, one in each volume.

Surfin’ USA

I live in the land of ice and frost, winter is a state of mind, not a season. We’ve been in “spring” for over a month and there is still snow on the ground and neither the trees nor flowers haven’t begun to bloom. We get about a month and a half of summer, I wish I was joking and that summer is hot and nasty. So I love that I can be in Second Life and be surrounded by sand and surf, flowers and gorgeous trees, and feel somewhat warm in my imagination.

Uber opened yesterday with an awesome new round. The Hamptons-inspired theme is sure to put you in a  summery mood. From bikinis to formal gowns, everything you need for a summer in the hills is right here.

It’s not very often I do a one photo blog shoot, but today I really wanted to focus on a few main items, the close up wasn’t as pertinent as the other items I am featuring.

First I want to mention once again the amazing retirement sale at Image Essentials. Almost 3/4 of the store is on sale for only 25L! Kay has gone insane and is making room for all the new Bento poses coming. What I love the most about Image Essentials poses is that even if it’s made with one gender in mind, you can usually use it with either. Like this pose for example. Lazing was made for men, it’s a great, kicked back and relaxed pose, but men aren’t the only ones that get lazy right? Well, maybe some men are *grins* Lazing is a 5 pose set with mirrors and is available in the main store and marketplace.

Bad Moon Rising

She waits in silence, her trusty gun sitting in her lap, easy to aim in case the threat comes back. This world so different from the one she knew, evil and chaos ruled now and she was always ready for whatever came at her. The moon cast an eerie pink glow, the skies filled with poison. She stirs restlessly, hearing a sound she crouches, gun at the ready. Whatever is coming for her better be bigger and badder than her or they wouldn’t walk away.
It’s really hard for a girl to look good in a post-apocalyptic world but with the help of a few amazing designers I think I pulled it off. When I woke up this morning and saw I had the new Uber blog pack from Vinyl I couldn’t wait to log in and start creating my look. I knew how I wanted everything to look it was just a matter of finding all the right pieces.

The first time I saw these all new backdrops from Minimal I knew I had to have them. 4 separate backdrops available right now at Uber, or you can do what I did and get the whole fatpack.

Wannabe

Ever since my husband and I got SiriusXM Radio I’ve been addicted to the 90’s on 9, it makes me feel like a kid again, listening to songs that I grew up with. From the Backstreet Boys to Nirvana, Spice Girls and Metallica, the 90’s held such an eclectic variation of EVERYTHING. It was the best time. When I heard about the latest Rewind event I knew I was gonna have to visit, but not quite yet, since I’m impatient and wanted to get a post done with Vinyl’s all new dress ASAP. So the hunt for 90’s related items started and I have to say I’m happy with how it came out, but beware, there will probably be more 90’s posts coming.

I was surprised how difficult it was to find 90’s decor on the Marketplace, but finally found some epic items that totally reminded me of my childhood, things I had or wanted. I’m going to state right now, the pictures on the wall are borrowed from Google Images, I do not own them or any rights to them and if asked I may be able to provide a link to the site in which I borrowed them, but I really needed fangirl posters to line my wall with.

I’m gonna start with the outfit first then I’ll move on to the decor. Suko of Vinyl has come up with this superb t-shirt and jumper combo, it comes in 16 colors with a bonus smooth cotton texture option as well as 16 solid tees and 16 bonus tee color with each one. You will definitely want the fatpack of this outfit it’s just too cute!

Outfit: Vinyl – Iha Dress – REWIND: A 90’s Throwback Event

Now there is a lot going on with the decor, but anyone that grew up in the 90’s knows you had shit all over your room and your parents were constantly yelling at you to clean it up and get off the damned phone. Like seriously, the phone was glued to my ear, I kept getting my personal phone in my room taken away. One thing I NEVER had that I wanted more than anything was a clear phone, that flashed colors when it rang but I have one now! Starlight Industries has come up with the see-through phone, no it does’t flash, but damn that’d be cool *laughs* but it does have an animation to hold it.

Phone: Starlight Industries – See Thru Phone

THE INFLATABLE CHAIR! OMG how I wanted one of these and I could never get my parents to let me have one, so when I saw it on the MP I had to grab it. Available in 7 colors with male and female poses as well as couples poses this chair was everything I ever wanted in my life. Thank you Kaz Nayar for making my dreams come true!

Chair: Pilot – Inflatable Chair White

Every man, woman and child had a CD Walkman in the 90’s, if you didn’t there was something wrong with you! When I saw the CD player by Plethora I had to have it and my only problem at that point was choosing a color.

CD Player: Plethora – CD Player White/Black

A TV with a built in VHS player meant you’d hit the big time. Vespertine’s plastic combo TV/VCR is perfection and comes with VHS tapes, and empty box and a box full of tapes, plus the file needed to make your own VHS tape.

The desk, although not 100% 90’s themed is perfect for a teenage girls room, with cutesy decor and more. It comes with the desk and chair and all for only 10L. It’s a steal.

The bed, again, while not 100% 90’s themed I knew more girls growing up that had a daybed than didn’t have one so when I was hunting for my decor I remember I had this awesome bed from Di’Cor. It has texture change options for the mattress, round pillows and regular pillows. It’s outstanding.

Bed: Di’Cor – Sophie Day Bed

I’ve recently discovered #Foxy hair and I’m in love! This one, as soon as I saw it I knew I needed it in my life and it was going to be perfect for my 90’s look. With the style HUD you have 4 options of how to wear your hair, I love this options, I really do!

To me it wouldn’t be the 90’s without chunky boots. Chunky boots, combat boots, skater shoes were all the norm during the 90’s and as I set about finding the right shoe I remembered I had a pair from Epic. These Stomp Boots are exactly what I imagine girls of the 90’s wearing and I love them.
