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!

Enchantment Is Here! Snow White’s Wish


Enchantment has begun! This is an amazing event, jam packed with stellar creators. The theme is Snow White. My first thought about the theme was hmm, how on earth will our wonderful designers come up with anything other than Snow White's famous dress in colors we well know and be kind of...humdrum in similarity. How wrong I was! Make it a point to visit the event this round, there are so many beautiful things.

Our dear Snow White begins her adventure as the Seven Dwarfs return home from work. They're singing, of course. "It's home from work we go..." (whistle, whistle) They march over the bridge, excited to see Snow White again, and hoping she has a roast in the oven. ;) Snow White gazes off into the distance, wishing perhaps, for the one she loves? Who might that be? The HUNTSMAN?? If we go by a clue, that hunter knife necklace she's wearing by [evoLove] would indicate so. Hmm. She's also wearing a gorgeous gown by Whymiscal Marketplace. Several colors and fits are available; this one is in Olive and Teal. Her hair is by lock&tuft called Casey, including the pretty headband. Other decor includes an apple basket gacha item by Les sucreries de Fairy, a wishing well from *DAWN*, and some intriguing landscaping decor by Serenity Style. I'll add these as I can to other posts, such beautiful additions to outdoor living! I'm also using a lovely pose which is part of an lar [poses]' Regina series exclusive to the event.

Lilah’s Love by Black Swan


Blogging designer items is fun, and sometimes it is truly a pleasure. This is one of those times. These are creations by !Black Swan! - the top and skirt are called Lilah's Love. I'm wearing the rose texture and there are three other pastel colors from which to choose. Turn and walk away from him; he won't be far behind your behind. ;)  My tattoo is also by !Black Swan! - Make A Wish. Click to enlarge the pic and see it in more lovely detail. I'll be wearing it again in upcoming posts. 

Thank you, Emilia Daxter, for continually delighting us with your work!

I picked just the right pose, from the Bollywood Dreams collection by NANTRA. Make it a point to stop by the store - Nancoix Urquan always has little surprises ready. She participates often in events, and sometimes you can catch great sets at super discounts. She has two brand new events sets out that I'll be sharing soon. You don't have to wait on me though, information is found at the store! Now where would we be without wonderful poses?

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

Take the time be calm and enjoy those moments.

This is London

This is London

London like second life can be a cruel place or it can be the best place you have ever visited.

I will never understand gang bullying in second life, just like real life we may not always love everyone we meet but tolerance and kindness can go a long way.

We need to remember that we are not robots behind a screen we are people, people with real emotions, feelings and insecurities.

Picking people up then dropping them when they don’t fit your needs is wrong in either world. I have seen so much hurt in the last few weeks that it really makes me wonder who exactly is real out there.

In a world created by its users we have turned into demanding, arrogant, self righteous individuals who do not seem to care how our reactions bother others.

When was the last time you did something big for someone else, when was the last time you messaged someone and said “hey do you need anything”.

Make a difference make Second Life a happier place be less selfish!

Let Yourself Bloom

Let yourself Bloom

Springtime is here (for some of us anyway) and things are happening.  The brrrrr of cold is gone, you can once again hear lawnmowers outside and the flowers with all their colors are emerging.  PurpleMoon made my day with this delicate blue rose tattoo for The Liaison Collaborative.  It has a very dreamy watercolor look about it with the phrase “let yourself bloom” lazily meandering up the spine.  How in the world could you hide this under clothing?!  The Liaison designers have brought us a rainy day collection this month … don’t let it pass you by ❤
