High Life

It seems that my blogger’s block may have come to an end and that is both good and bad. Good because I feel like blogging and I am really happy with how my blog is coming out, bad because I’m running out of stuff to blog. It’s a double edge sword, to be honest, but that is ok because I have absolutely no problem hunting things down that I like and purchasing them to include them in my blog.
An old friend of mine, a man that actually gave me a chance when I was a new blogger has recently returned to the designing world, Alkith is a fabulous designer and I am so glad he is back, real life got the better of him for a while but he’s back in a HUGE way, this dress from Ignition Art includes sizes for all Belleza, Slink and Maitreya Lara sizes. It is available as a fatpack only at XXX Event for an amazingly low price of 299L. The HUD includes 20 colors and 4 metals.

I still have to pinch myself when I log into Blogotex and see the amazing designers that have entrusted me with their designs. MODA very recently gave me a chance and I am ecstatic to be able to show off the amazing shoes that she creates. These amazing shoes were created for aQua, a fabulous, fairly new event in Second Life. Bianca is a multi-color shoe pack available for only 499L, they fit Slink, Maitreya and Belleza.

Foxcity has some of my absolutely favorite poses in Second Life, the creativity and sensuality that is in every pose are just next to none. This set was released a couple of months ago but I keep reusing her poses, whenever a specific look is needed her’s is the first I look to. Effortless was two separate pose packs including 7 poses each, 6 for sale at regular price and the fatpack which includes the 7th, exclusive pose.

When I put this styling together my mind immediately turned to a club theme, finding a backdrop I hadn’t blogged before was the challenge and then I remembered I had a bunch of amazing backdrops from Minimal. Retro is a set of 8 backdrops, 1 rare and 7 commons that are a gacha available at the main store.

Today I decided I wanted to share my Lelutka Cate bento mesh head with a fabulous shape from West End, I did modify the body but the face is exactly as it comes out of the box, I just like a bit of a curvier look although my daughter says I’m too skinny still. I paired all of this with an amazing skin from 7 Deadly Skins, Kate is a set of 8 skins. Based on the LAQ Kate bento mesh head and comes with the body appliers. There are two versions of this skin; version 1 has no makeup and version 2 has some eye makeup.

I did say before when I blogged these nails from SlackGirl that I may never take them off, I haven’t yet but this is the first time I’m including them in a blog again. They are the rare item in September’s PocketGacha and if you haven’t played the PocketGacha yet you really should. No TP, no lag, no people playing your machine, no failed deliveries. Just pure gacha enjoyment in the privacy of your own home, or at the club, or anywhere!

Now, I say it every month, I say it every round, I say it all the time “I am not going to this gacha event” and inevitably I end up at whichever gacha event I intend to avoid because the designers that I am friends with on Facebook post the gacha key and I’m hooked. This time it was LootBox. LootBox is unique in the fact that the rare item includes not only the rare but 2 other items, sometimes a secret and sometimes common items. You never know what your LootBox will hold. These gloves from Masoom are the rare and include a HUD to change the glove and metal colors. These are absolutely fabulous and you can try to win Maitreya Bento or Slink Bento fit gloves.

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.

I had no intention of going to The Arcade, seriously that place is so bad on my wallet but I wanted these shoes from Breathe and off I went. Breathe has two machines at Arcade, each machine has shoes for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza and 2 rares and 1 common set. I say common set because every color that Breathe makes is available to win individually, the rares are fatpacks and all are absolutely amazing!

I have been so on top of things lately that I have literally blogged every item available from my two amazing hair designers I had to find a hair and so I headed over to the latest round of Hairology. Fabia is there with an exclusive but there are also two non-exclusive hairs available for purchase as well and I found Anisa. It is so pretty with its loose braid and 3 different texture HUDs available for purchase. I couldn’t not have this hair.

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.

Always a Bridesmaid

A lot of little girls, even big girls I know, spend their entire life planning the amazing wedding that they will one day have. Not me, when we played wedding as kids I was always the groom, I could have cared less about the dress, the bridesmaids, flowers, etc. My friends would plan these huge, elaborate weddings and I would show up…just your typical tomboy I guess. As I got older, being involved in other people’s weddings was underwhelming for me, I really could have cared less. My own wedding was planned in 3 weeks, in my mom’s backyard with a picnic lunch, I was more concerned about the food, maybe that should have been my first clue that getting married wasn’t for me since my marriage of 5 years has come to an end. It’s a new chapter in my life and I still have no interest in a future wedding, I will always be a bridesmaid.

The Trunk Show brought to you by Pale Girl Productions is a wedding themed event, there are so many gowns, decor, poses and more for your wedding day you will not want to miss out on this event. Lybra is in the first of this all new bi-monthly event and the gown they are offering is amazing. Made for Maitreya only it comes in 8 colors and trust me you will want them all. This is a great gown for either the bride, there is an ivory and white version, or the bridesmaids. Lybra really went all out with the bowed belt to the lace. I fell in love with this gown the first time I saw it.

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 will admit the next item took some doing to get the look I wanted. SlackGirl included a set of eyeshadows and eyeliners and I wanted to wear both. In order to get this to happen since they are both defaulted to the eyeshadow layer of the Lelutka head, I had to go in and turn off the routing on the HUD. Once that was done I was able to route the eyeliner to the blush layer and then the eyeshadow to the eyeshadow layer. This created a super unique look and allowed me to show you both appliers from SlackGirl.

This is What You Came For

Today is one of those days that I am having a really hard time getting motivated. Woke up late, had to drag me into the shower, coffee isn’t kicking in fast enough, you know the routine. On a good note, however, I love my new job. The stress level is so much lower than with my previous job, the benefits are out of this world, I finished all the computer training yesterday and I should be in action today! I am a little nervous, they throw so much at you at once I am worried I’ll forget something, but that’s why I have my team right?

I love Reve Obscura poses and recently blogger applications were opened, I had to make a very hard decision of whether to apply or not. I already have 2 pose makers that I blog for and Reve Obscura poses are super affordable so I have chosen at this time to pass up the opportunity to apply to blog for this fabulous pose maker and continue supporting him when I can (which is a lot, to be honest). This pose is brand new and super cute, it is bento enabled and does require at the minimum a bento viewer, for the best results you do need bento enabled hands as well. You can pick it up on the MP or inworld for only L$50, it’s a real steal!

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.

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.

The second stunning item I have is from Lybra and is available right now at Kinky Event. These shoes are fabulous and so unique with a color change HUD to change the main part of the shoe, the back of the shoe and the metals, which can also be turned on and off. These are just fantastic and I can’t get enough of them.

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. I love short hair, but it’s so hard to find a fabulous one in Second Life and this hair fits the bill. 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 was loyal to Image Essentials long before I met Kay and honestly the quality of poses she makes, the time and effort she puts into making amazing poses just amazes me. This set of poses includes 8 poses in total.

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.

The tank top comes in 28 color options with 6 additional colors for the fatpack. This tank top is available at Limit 8.
