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.

I love when I come across a creator/store that I didn’t know about and just adore the first thing I see.  In this case though, I should say the creator came across me.  Dima Plessis of Cazimi sent me this poppy flower crown and pumpkin spice eyes today with a note saying she thought they fit me.   They do!  Everybody knows I am a hair flower ho ho.  I am truly almost always sporting some kind of headdress…even if it’s a lone daisy behind my ear ❤

The pumpkin spice eyes are just gorgeous and perfect for the upcoming season.  These two products are for the Spoonful of Sugar event to benefit MSF from Sept. 16- Oct 1, 2017…. so yeah … I’m a little early showing them…. mah bad.  Both items, the headdress and eyes, are exclusive, 100% donation items for the duration of SOS.  Please mark your calendar so you remember to go to such a worthy event ❤

I’m also wearing Akeruka’s newest bento mesh head, Charlotte.  Isn’t she purty!?  I don’t have any appliers on, this is the default skin.  I used the hud that comes with the head and chose freckles (always choose freckles) and practically bare makeup.  I did use the tint option on the lashes to color them a pretty shade of green just for fun.  I’m wearing the Charlotte shape (also comes with the head)  and it’s worth noting that I haven’t edited the face in any way…either in appearance or photoshop ….so this is the face you get when you buy Charlotte ❤

Charlotte will be available at the 4Mesh Event, the newest version of the older Mesh Body addict Bi-monthly event.  It’ll open on September 12th and run through October 11th (again…mark that calendar!) ❤
