Storytime

Those of you who know me already know, I love doing pictures, I am not always about fashion. Especially the monochrome pictures I love a lot.

Today I was in the mood for another one. And I think now I am in the right mood for a glas of wine and a good book out of that cage ღ

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.

(Not so) Sad November

The darker time of the year starts up here in the northern hemisphere, and many people deal with moodswings, mostly it’s going south. I envy a little bit our friends in Australia, New Zealand and so on. For them it is Spring….

Yes I deal with those sad moods too. The lack of daylight, the grey and nasty weather outside.. but there are so many ways to lighten up your mood. I already talked a lot about music. Listen to happy songs. Uptempo. Avoid the sad “oh I am such a whiny guy” songs. And bring some color into your life.
Or just get comfy and enjoy that weather. Couch, a blanket, some hot chocolate and a good movie.
Or – combine it. Bring some color into your life while you get comfy – with your loved one maybe? I think I found a perfect example how to do it at Sad November, let me show you:

Back to blogging?Back to blogging!

Blog 08_11_17 closeup

 

For several months I was gone from the internet. In March my “box” broke, and due to some health issues it took some months for me to get it fixed by my provider and get back. Back on my feet, back to some kind of normal. Get back my life, and then at some point get back my internet.

When I finally got back, many things changed for me. And I had to change things to stay mentally sane. So not only did I drop a job I loved, I also dropped blogging. Deadlines turned out to be stress for me, and it actually “killed” my whole creativity. I had a feeling my photos got worse instead of better. So I decided to stop blogging.

The thing that is stable for so many years is the amazing friendship I have with Sassy Nitely, and I am fortunate and blessed to work with my bestie. And with the changes in that job, with the evolving of her brand, by sharing all the excitement we had with every new creation she did, my fun came back and my addiction to take pictures hit me again.

Now I decided to go back to blogging. With some changes. No sponsors. Less blogs, but those blogs I do will be done with fun :)

Hollow

This has not been the best weekend of my life, to say the least. My poor cat, who’s been sick for a while finally succumbed to his illness and passed, a group that I’ve blogged for over a year and a half did not re-accept me as a blogger and I came home to an empty propane tank. I’ve been trying to figure out my moves in life, what steps to take next and something keeps pushing back, just when I think I finally have a handle on things. Oh and I just discovered that my fridge may be on its last leg as well. All I can do is hold a smile or I will break and I will not let circumstances break me.

I have some really amazing items to share with you all on my blog today, so many I’m not even sure where to start. So, I suppose I will go top to bottom. First up today we have a brand new backdrop and pose set from Foxcity. I just absolutely adore Foxcity, she is so creative and fun with her poses and backdrops. These are currently available at Project Se7en. There are two pose sets and one backdrop to choose from. The poses can be purchased individually or as a fatpack but the fatpack comes with an exclusive pose, so in my opinion, the fatpack is the ONLY way to go. You have until October 30 to get to Se7en and take advantage of the amazing items there.

Black Fair – The Absence is now open and I have a lot of goodies to share with you from this stunning event. Black Fair runs from October 6 to the 20. Masoom is there with this halter and jacket set, they are sold separately but look so amazing together. Available in 15 colors each or in a fatpack that allows you to mix and match to your heart’s content.

Although not exclusive to the Black Fair, you can grab these shorts from Asteria’s booth, sexy and short they went perfectly with the jacket and harness.

I missed out bringing you these amazing shoes from CandyDoll during Shoetopia, it closed yesterday October 9 sadly, but keep an eye out, I am sure you’ll be able to find them in the store and marketplace soon. I just love the fishnet body of these thigh-high heeled shoes, they are fabulous with a garter attachment that goes so well with lingerie and shorts. Available in individual colors or two fatpacks.

I love Stealthic, I have from the first moment I put Daughter on at the Hair Fair 2016 and although I was not chosen to blog for them anymore, I will still support this amazing creator. I love Hunter’s styles, he does just amazing hair. This stunning male hair was released at The Mens Department and comes with a style HUD including four styles as well as a toggle option.

7 Deadly Skins is also at Black Fair with a brand new skin. Key is an Omega applier skin for face and body based on the LAQ Gaia head, it’s available in two tone packs each including 7 tones.

The main reason I had to visit Black Fair in the first place are these amazing mesh ears from Swallow, from the moment the WIP was posted I knew I had to have them. The options included with these ears will blow you away and I have to agree with Lucia, these are probably her best work to date. I am just in love with these ears and I may never take them off.

While at Black Fair I decided to shop around and bit and found these amazing eyes from Zombie Suicide, they are fun and different, with a darker iris and sclera with a flash of light across them. The tones are just stunning and it is made for Catwa and Omega compatible eyes.

Don't look for happiness, create it

Good Morning everyone,  it’s a grey rainy day in the UK today but most definately not in todays post,  I had so much fun making this one, actually makes me wish I was there in RL lol I’m not one for going in the sea on vacation but I love to be in the pool and would be in and out til dark if I could lol, in between cocktails on a sunlounger whilst reading a book, sounds perfect right.

I always find when blogging we are own worst critic and I will admit that since my break I haven’t been loving my posts, possibly because of the pressure I put on myself to get through as many requirements as I can as I hate to let people down and I am always the professional even when things in RL are not the best, but this post I feel is my turning point I really enjoyed making it and I actually like it too so yay for me 🙂

Reaper

Kustom9 March '17 done2048.png

*Random song of the day* ❤

Broke down, thought that I would drown
Hope that I’d be found, ‘fore I hit the ground
Some days out the corner of my eye, hey
Saw you weeping, saw you creeping, saw you sneaking
In the shadows long the fear so strong
Saw you out the corner of my eye

Don’t come for me today
I’m feeling good, let me savor it
Don’t come for me today
I’m feeling good and I remember when

You came to take me away
So close I was to heaven’s gates
But, no, baby, no, baby, not today
Oh, you tried to track me down
You followed me like the darkest cloud
But, no, baby, no, baby, not today (reaper)
Oh, reaper (reaper)
Oh, no, baby, no, baby, not today (reaper)
Oh, reaper (reaper)
Oh, no, baby, no, baby, not today

So come back when I’m good and old
I got drinks to drink, and men to hold
I got good things to do with my life, yeah
Oh, I wanna dance in the open breeze
Feel the wind in my hair, hear the ocean sing
I got good things to feel in my life, yeah

Don’t come for me today
I’m feeling good, let me savour it
Don’t come for me today
I’m feeling good, I remember when

You came to take me away
So close I was to heaven’s gates
But, no, baby, no, baby, not today
Oh, you tried to track me down
You followed me like the darkest cloud
But, no, baby, no, baby, not today (reaper)
Oh, reaper (reaper)
Oh, no, baby, no, baby, not today (reaper)
Oh, reaper
Oh, no, baby, no, baby, not today

Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy

♫He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
He had a boogie style that no one else could play
He was the top man at his craft
But then his number came up and he was gone with the draft
He’s in the army now, a-blowin’ reveille
He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B♫

Can you listen to this without wiggling and tapping with your foot? I just can’t. This song is old, but still soo good and defenitely one of my “good mood” songs. Whether I am sad or mad, this song puts me into a good mood in a few seconds
