Club Can’t Handle Me

Sometimes I have so many things I want to say, so many thoughts swirling through my brain that I can’t really make sense of them, but today I want to say how grateful I am. I am grateful to all the designers and blog managers who have given me a chance to showcase their wonderful creations. I am grateful to Kay Weston of Image Essentials giving me the chance to be her blog manager and help her create a team that will take us to the next level. I am grateful to the wonderful bloggers that have taken on the calling of blogging for Image Essentials and the hard work and dedication that they do. Most of all I am grateful to be able to do this, to take items from these amazing creators and bring them to life for my readers to enjoy.

PocketGacha is in its third month and the items are just as amazing now as they were in the first two round. Varonis is in the November edition of PocketGacha with some stunning items. This gacha set has 10 commons and one rare to win.

My friend Maddy messaged me the other day and asked if I would share some of her new items that are available at White Nights Event happening right now from November 20-27. This is a discount event so hurry you don’t want to miss out on this amazing dress. It comes with a HUD including 12 colors and 2 metals. This dress is super sexy and perfect for a night out at the club.

A few months ago I messaged the creator of MODA, my application had been sitting in limbo for a little while and I thought I would touch base with her. It was the perfect time since she’d just lost a blogger and was looking to fill a spot and I got a chance to blog for an amazing creator. I have never regretted my decision to contact her and I’m hoping she hasn’t either. These gorgeous, thigh-high boots are available at anyBODY right now. As with all MODA shoes, it comes with an extensive HUD to customize them to your needs.

This brand new set of poses comes with five +mirrors and is available only at TWE12VE until the end of the month. I love Image Essentials, she always comes up with fun bento poses for just about any situation.

Just Magnetized is back in this month’s Catwa Powder Pack with an all-new hairbase and that influenced my decision on which hair to showcase this time around. Powder Pack is released twice a month with some of the best skins and makeups on the grid for Catwa and Lelutka mesh heads, you can pre-order them for only 1500L or wait until it’s released and pay 3000L. I have never been disappointed in all the months I have been blogging for Powder Pack with the items that I receive.

That’s Money Honey


You know I appreciate the finer things
But it's not what makes me happiest baby
{I can do without it babe}
Your tender loving's more than I can handle
Never burn out this candle baby, baby

When you give me k-kisses
That's money honey
When I'm your lover and your mistress
That's money honey
When you touch me it's so delicious
That's money honey
Baby when you tear me to pieces
That's money honey

Smoke & Mirrors

I had a job interview yesterday, the first one I’ve had since I moved back home and it’s a graveyard position. 20 years ago I would have jumped at that chance to have a graveyard shift but my body clock has changed and I can barely stay awake past 9 pm now. Plus, I’m working on being a mom again, rebuilding my family and that will be a little hard to do if I’m sleeping all day. So, even though I think the interview went well and that there is a good chance they will offer me the position, I am going to have to decline it and that’s really hard for me, I’m not used to not working.

I have so many amazing things to share with you today and first up is this gorgeous cocktail dress from Shoenique. Available in 4 colors during Designer Showcase you can grab each one for only 99L. This dress is fit for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, TMP and standard sizes and comes with an optional flexi skirt. It’s just right to make you feel like a million bucks.

From Mesange and available right now at We <3 RP, this tattoo comes in 4 colors in three intensities made for Belleza and Omega. This tattoo could be used as a unisex tattoo as well.

I am always looking for fun and unique hairs and when I decided to pop over to VoltHair to see what was new I saw this one. Available right now for Lootbox there are two versions of this hair; one updo and one braid. It is just gorgeous. It does not come with a hairbase, so I dug into my inventory to see what I had and found this gorgeous base from Just Magnetized.

Tiny Dancer

♫ Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today ♫

From a Distance

Bette Midler, this woman has long since been an idol of mine. She’s funny, serious, talented, and just an amazingly wonderful woman. From characters like Winifred that make you laugh until you cry to songs that bring tears to your eyes, she’s the complete package as a performer. I don’t normally do this, but today I’m going to share the lyrics of this song because it’s just as relevant now as it was in 1987 when it was released.
From a distance, the world looks blue and green
And the snow capped mountains white
From a distance, the ocean meets the stream
And the eagle takes to flight
From a distance there is harmony
And it echoes through the land
It’s the voice of hope
It’s the voice of peace
It’s the voice of every man
From a distance, we all have enough
And no one is in need
And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease
No hungry mouths to feed
To read the full lyric go here
I am constantly asking the question “why?” Why is there so much hate, so much anger? Why do we have to hurt and kill each other? Why do we have to belittle and berate those that are different from us? So many questions that have no answers. I dream of a world where people can get along, respect one another, and live in harmony. Maybe I’m a dreamer but it’s better than accepting things the way they are.

This gorgeous dress from AnaMarkova is what inspired my song, whenever I think of Bette Midler I think diva, I think old school and this dress just totally made me think of this classy woman I admire so much. Available at Designer Showcase right now it is available in 7 colors and is fit for Maitreya, Belleza, TMP, Tonic, Slink, and standard bodies. When I put this dress on I couldn’t wait to share it with everyone.

Thinking of Bette, of course, led me to look for a pose that would suit the diva and I was in luck because Something New released this awesome mic pose for TWE12VE. This set comes with the prop and pose.

The location was easy to choose as well. SAYO released these awesome backdrops for The Epiphany round in July 2017. I love backdrops, they make it so easy for me to create a stunning scene. This set has one rare and 8 commons. I just love SAYO’s backdrops because they are all like little rooms in a larger building. Fantastic work.

When I saw this newest release from Phoenix for Hairology I was so excited, it comes two different fits with a style HUD that includes 3 styles and a no bang options. I love the fitted mesh option because it bounces when you have physics on, creating a more natural hair.

Sing Together

Snapshot_020

I have a dream! Yes, I know what an opening statement, I have been blogging 3 years now and quite honestly the divide between bloggers and designers really does not seem to have got much better at all, in fact now with more and more bloggers it is probably getting worse. It would be so nice if we could all get on, work together and most of all enjoy what we do. Before I am yelled at yes I know some designers do this as a job, it is serious to them, but like with anything there has to be some fun involved or it becomes reflected in your work.

This week alone on social media I have seen bloggers cussing about designers too high expectations and designers complaining about how their designs are being shown.

I stay away from commenting directly, I honestly don’t want the hassle. But I had to say something because it really should not be like this.

 Sing Together

Bloggers if you do not like a designer’s requirements do not apply to them, if they change them whilst you are a blogger for them politely point out the change is making it more difficult for you and walk away on good terms. Remember this is a business for designer x, and they have to do what they feel is right for their brand. Remeber when selected they are trusting you with their hard work!

Designers whether you are new or old, value your bloggers if you have an issue with them talk to them directly.  Make your guidelines clear and when you are not hiring bloggers yourself but have a blogger manager doing it for you, make sure you are singing from the same hymn sheet. I am honestly very lucky to have awesome sponsors who I believe do just this and that is why some of them have been an obvious part of my blog for years!

Have fun all because we get one life to live and play as we wish!
