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.

Meant to Be

A lot of drama and anger in my life lately, knowing that my soon to be ex-husband is in jail and will hopefully stay there for the rest of his life. I’m not a vindictive person but I want him to pay for what he has done to my daughters, to myself. His controlling nature caused so much heartache, his constant negativity and physical abuse to my youngest, and the sexual abuse of my oldest should leave him rotting in jail. During this journey, I have come to find out who my friends are, who will be there for my children and myself. It’s amazing what you learn in tragedy. I am, with my children and mother, slowly picking up the pieces of my broken life. My trust and faith is severely damaged but time can heal that.

I have so many amazing items to share with you today and the first is this super cute new prop and pose set from Something New. Available as a gift to group members for the fifth anniversary of the creation of Something New it comes with a living room scene prop and four built-in poses. This set is so cute and I am so happy I was able to share it with you.

Xanadu

When I was a kid I wanted to be Olivia Newton-John, she was beautiful, classy, elegant. She could sing, dance, and act and she had an awesome Aussie accent. So when I was putting together this scene what else could I name it but Xanadu?

When I saw what ChicModa was releasing for Once Upon a Nightmare I knew immediately what I wanted to pair it with, this was one of the easiest outfits I’ve ever put together. Once Upon a Nightmare is a main store event, which means you go to the store that is participating to get the items. Go to any participating designer to grab a HUD or join the Once Upon a Nightmare Group and get to shopping. Bonnie comes with a standard color HUD and a special Halloween HUD, I was going to do just the Halloween prints but then decided to play with the color HUD as well and much to my delight the Halloween prints stayed in place. I was super excited to mix and match my top to my leggings.

These leggings are from Riot’s debut round at Collabor88, like bloggers it seems that designers have a wish list of events they’d like to participate in and I am so happy for Riot that she made it into Collabor88.

Paparazzi

My mind is overloaded with thoughts, a jumbled mess that I can’t seem to make an order of. Things I cannot discuss with anyone, lost in my thoughts, my mind racing to make sense, to find peace. Only time will bring that and an inevitable conclusion, but only time will tell if that conclusion is inevitable or not.

N°21 opened on October 21 and runs until November 12, there were so many things I saw a preview for I just had to go and grab them. Astralia is there with an all-new gacha set, this set includes 1 rare and 4 commons and I just had to create my own scene using two of them. These are just so much fun!

Pennywise

There was a movie I saw when I was a kid, it terrified me so badly that I couldn’t take a shower without keeping an eye on the drain. To this day, every time I watch this movie I have the same reaction and they went and made a remake, but that’s ok because it’s given me some amazing material to work with in Second Life.

Where to start? I mean honestly, everything in this picture is just amazing but since I have my closeup picture coming up next I’ll cover the outfit first. Masoom is at N°21 this month with a gacha. This set has 3 colors to play for; black, white, and red. The black items are the rares and the white and red are common. Each individual piece is a prize and there is a top, belly ring, bracelet, belt, pants and leg warmers.

If you pre-order the pack, either Lelutka or Catwa, before the release it will only cost you 1500L, wait until it drops and you’re going to shell out 3000L. Either way, it is completely worth the price. Essences is back with a brand new skin and it includes the Catwa applier in 3 tones with two options each, the body appliers, and a shape.

That Old Black Magic

So much has changed for me this week. I put my notice in at a job I love, started moving things to my mother’s house. I brought my cats to her house on Tuesday and you would have thought I was taking them to the slaughter with the way they acted up in the car. They are starting to settle in and even making friends with her dog. Things are changing and it will be for the better, in the long run, I know this, but for now, I’m just living day to day.

Lybra created this stunning bodysuit with lace bodice for Salem and it is super sexy. It is available in 11 colors and is made for Maitreya only.

This pose from Reve Obscura is a bento pose and comes with the mesh spellbook. It is so fantastic. The background is one that I came across while I was searching and it just seemed perfect for my needs.

Turning Japanese

I’m just going to start by saying, I miss the 80’s. It was a simpler time, people didn’t let petty little things hurt their feelers and political correctness had never even been heard of. Had this song been written and released now it would never have seen air time. A trend I am seeing, especially among bloggers, is a sense of entitlement. A lot of bloggers feel that they don’t “work” for the designers they represent but I beg to differ. When you fill out an application to become an official blogger of a brand, you agree to certain rules, to represent the brand to the best of your ability, and to showing said creators items to your readers. When you fail to do this and the post is rejected, you cry foul. I am simply going to say, if you don’t want to work for a designer and follow the rules set forth, then remove yourself from the group, buy the stuff you want to blog as a hobby and quit your entitled bitching and complaining. Okay, enough with my soapbox this morning, it’s just something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately and wanted to voice my opinion.

I got accepted to blog for a brand new event called Hanger Monthly and I’ll be perfectly honest, it was a challenge to represent the two items I chose for today’s blog. I tried several different poses, hairs, backgrounds, etc before I found the perfect look. This tattoo is available from Frida Tattoo during the opening round of Hangar and it is very detailed. It covers from neck to mid-waist including the nipple area and down the arms to wrap around your back, it’s bright and colorful but the pictures detail a much more sinister story. Hangar runs from the 15th of the current month until the 10th of the following month each month.

Available right now at Collabor88, this is an entire outfit you can purchase individually, individual fatpacks, or as an entire set including sweater, tank top, and skirt. Although, I love the sweater and skirt I really only needed the tank top so here it is. I did purchase the fatpack which comes with one additional exclusive color.

Devil Inside Me

I accepted the Halloween challenge from Lawrence Pryce and I tell you what, it pushed me to get creative. It wasn’t sexy, it wasn’t erotic, it was simply nerdy. It was fun and I’m so glad I did it. If you would like to see what my creativity produce go to #PryceHalloweenChallenge.

I love blogging, bringing fun and creative outfits, hair, and more to my readers. Sometimes I wonder why I’m still doing it but then I start styling for a blog and it all comes back to me. I love the whole process, picking clothes, shoes, hair, accessories and making a picture to go with it. It’s, even more, fun when I have amazing creations like this one from Masoom. Available right now at Cosmopolitan the top and panties are sold separately, you can purchase the fatpacks of each and have the ability to mix and match.
