Blow Your Mind (Mwah)

Sometimes I have so much going on in my head I don’t know what to write about. I’m trying to put my life back together right now, that’s first and foremost in my thoughts, making sure my children are happy and healthy after the abuse they suffered from a man they called dad. My trust in men is gone and the thought of ever dating or getting serious with anyone ever again just doesn’t seem possible. I have found out who my friends are, as he has I am sure since most of his friends have reached out to me and my daughter. People are appalled that a man they’ve known for x amount of years was truly a monster capable of sexually abusing and raping a 15-year-old girl. Some good things have come from this, I’ve moved home with my mother, I have a new car coming and it will be here today and although I haven’t found a job yet I am hopeful something good will come to me. I don’t spend a lot of time on Second Life, I take pictures for my blog and sometimes don’t write the post for a day or two. I meet my obligations but fixing my family is the most important thing to me right now.

ChicModa released this amazing top for Sad November which opened yesterday. There are 16 different colors of this top and is made for Maitreya and both Slink bodies. You can shop Sad November until December 2.

As soon as I saw this top I knew exactly what I wanted to pair it with, I headed on over to the November round of Collabor88 to pick up these amazing pants. Available from CandyDoll in 20 colors or a fatpack, the amazing laced cutouts on the hips of these pants really make them stand out, plus the wide flare leg is just awesome.

You still have a few days to get over to the latest edition of The Epiphany and while you’re there you should really grab these amazing backdrops from Minimal. This set includes 1 rare and 5 commons, one common has 3 different colors and another has two different seasons, so in reality, you have a chance to win 8 commons.

Hairology opened on November 10 and when I saw the ad for this RunAway hair I knew I had to go grab it. This hair comes with a style HUD for 4 options, standard and Omega hairbases and it is fitmesh, so that means it can’t be resized.

I was accepted to blog for Designer Showcase, a monthly event that has been around since 2011 and is still going strong. Each month amazing designers offer their creations exclusively to shoppers of this event. For this blog, I chose makeup from Dulce Secrest, a beautiful hairbase from Avada and awesome nail polish from Cazimi. Dulce Secrets has lipstick and eyeshadow sold separately and they’re only 99L a piece with 6 colors for each.

My neck looked a little bare and so I decided to check out Noir and see if there was something there I didn’t have already and I found this gorgeous choker. Satine comes in two rigged sizes and an unrigged, resizeable version. The color change HUD includes 5 satin and two metal colors.

The Little Things In Life That I Feel


I could feel it coming back
I didn't know, was I built to last
I've come so far so fast
And it feels like a hundred years
Am I dreaming? Is it gonna last?

I could be better still
Than anything I've done
I know you think you could do, too
I know you think you feel it's true
It's the little things in life that I feel

You’ve Got The Moves To Rule The World


Tokyo girl, Tokyo girl
You've got the moves to rule the world
That cute inscru-tability
Tokyo girl, you're a mystery

Tokyo girl, Tokyo girl
Shaking up hearts around the world
You can't forget that stunning face
Smiling at you it's your destiny

She's got the face sweet as a baby
Elegant taste and money to burn
Her "yes" is "no", "no" is a "maybe"
Her language is so hard to learn

                                 ~~ Tokyo Girl, Ace of Base


Yes, I "went there" with those lyrics, lol. Too-too appropriate! This is going to be such a fun and fashionable month at Swank. This month's theme is Toyko Mix, and as you can imagine, there will be vibrant colors, sexiness and Asian influence to titillate the lindens right out of your hand. So TP over on September 7th for the start of the fantastic presentation! See you there.

Disco Down And Check Out The Show At Swank!


And there was dancin', and singin', and movin' to the groovin', and just when it hit me, somebody turned around and shouted IT'S RETRO MANIA AT SWANK!

Wait. Disco is now considered Retro? Omg, say it isn't so! I always considered Retro to be the 50's, 60's, even 70's. I think I'm getting old. I guess younger peeps think of the 90's as Retro. Difficult to wrap my head around that. ;)

When I opened my review box for irrISIStible, I did do some dancing around the room. Woot, I get to be a disco queen! This costume is totally fabulous! Ladies, there will be lots of parties and dances where this will be great to throw on and show off your moves. Disco night? Yep. Halloween or Mardi Gras? Yep. ANY time for all you other disco queens?? YEP.
