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!

8 years on!

Snapshot_054

8 years ago yesterday I set up an account, it was used occasionally at that point, I was hanging in another world and had a very succesful business. Second life became an escape from my virtual escape. Things happen and I felt more at home in second life than I did anywhere. Much has changed in sl in 8 years.

Please do not expect credits on the picture below but this was taken in my very early days in sl.

lhhunts

I think the great thing about second life now is the ability to be who you want to be is even more so. With mesh and bento we have so much more choice. I am so happy to have been able to see this place develop and make some life long friends.

Snapshot_055.jpg

We never know what this future holds so I can not say here is to 8 more but I can say here is to the future and may SL continue to develop and prosper and sure we are going to hate some changes intitially but we will learn to love it!

Attention

I’ve actually been waiting for the right moment to use this song and the two new releases from ChicModa finally gave me my opening. I have been seriously slacking on my blog lately. I don’t know if I’m hitting another slump and maybe will end up taking a break or if I just have so much going on with other things. My niece got married on this past Saturday, I’ve taken on a position as a hostess at Frank’s Place Jazz Club which I am so excited about. I’ve spent the past year on my blogging platform, cut off from the rest of Second Life, focusing on building my blog and making it better and better. Since I began dating Maxe I’ve decided I’d like to get back into the real world a bit, I still love blogging and I will continue to do it but I might not be as active as I have in the past.

I am so excited to show you the two items from ChicModa that were just released. First up we have an all new top. Available at Cosmopolitan from May 21 to June 3. This top comes in 10 individual colors for 189L or a fatpack of colors for 1099L.
The skirt is the BishBox release and will not be available anywhere but the BishBox. If you missed the pre-order you can still pick it up for the full price of 3000L and then remember to pre-order June’s box for only 1500L.

I was Made for Loving You

Sometimes I go to write and completely blank, my mind so full of so many things. Things like, how long will that reset take to finish at work, why did I start it already, why does the company I work for suck so bad that they overload us with stuff to put away before there are spots for it. RL makes me want to scream frequently but I put a smile on my face, pull up my big girl panties and imagine his face and my day is all better.

I made it to SaNaRae, I think I’ve mentioned that before but there were so many amazing items available at this round I just had to say it again. One of the amazing items I found was this super cute dress from Imbue. Available in multiple colors or a fatpack, the sweet little cut outs, dipped bodice and the full-length skirt is just so much fun. I grabbed 2 colors because I loved it so much.

Dress: Imbue – Cutout Dress Noir with Embroidery – SaNaRae

This backdrop is another one from the Pseudo gacha at SaNaRae, I loved the birdcages and it seemed like such a perfect place to take a fancier picture. You can win one of 6 commons and 1 rare and this gacha is 75L a pull.

Backdrop: Pseudo – Hampton’s Bird Room Scene – SaNaRae

This brand new pose from Image Essentials is the Blogger of the Month winner’s pack, Anna Rain won the BotM for March and had a series of poses named after her, the first set is available at Square1 from May 1 – 21.

From the moment I saw this WIP on this hair, I couldn’t wait to wear it and blog it. Phoenix released this super cute, braided “fun bun” hair as my boyfriend calls them for The Secret Hideout.

May Lelutka Powder Pack released yesterday morning, which means you can no longer pre-order it for the super low price of only 1500L but you can still grab it for 3000L. And you can pre-order the May Catwa Powder Pack right now. Trust me these Powder Packs are amazing. This month’s Lelutka box is packed full of skins and stunning makeups. Amara Beauty is back with Felicia. Felicia includes all 12 skin tones and 18 lipstick options. That alone is worth the 1500L price of the pre-order.

This eyeshadow, from the moment I saw it I knew I wasn’t going to take it off for a while. From Pink Fuel with two different HUDs, the colors are so much fun, the sparkling glittery shadow is just absolute perfection.

Last but definitely not least is this beautiful lip color from !Imabee, the super glossy lip collection includes 20 different lip shades and is just the right amount of shiny.

This awesome shape is from West End. I only recently discovered West End, when my frustration with creating just the right look for my Lelutka Cate Bento mesh head had me ready to just trash it and call it a day. I decided to look on the MP for shapes and saw one I thought was pretty. I grabbed them demo and bam! there was my face. West End shapes are modifiable so if there is something you want to tweak a little bit you can, but straight out of the box the face is perfection in my opinion. I fell in love with her shapes so much that when the blogger apps opened, I applied, crossed my fingers and prayed that I’d be accepted and I was! Now I can share theses amazing bento compatible shapes with the world.

Shape: West End – Sydney Shape for Lelutka Cate

ZOZ is back with two all new sets of polishes for Cosmopolitan. There is a set of tipped and non-tipped polishes featuring a stunning floral print. The HUD comes with 9 colors and is available for Maitreya, Slink, Omega, Vista and ZOZ mesh nails.

Once In A While

Once in a while.png

*Hums* Yeah… It’s stuck in my head 😉

Yeah, I thought I would know better
That’s wishful thinkin’
Thought there’d be no pressure
That’s wishful drinkin’
Is anything forever or just a feeling?
What have I been so afraid of?
I don’t know

But once in a while, I catch myself
Once in a while, I ask myself
What am I doing?
Once in a while, I need your help
But once in a while I feel like
I just wanna dance
I feel good, I feel good
I feel good, I feel good

Lights Down Low

I have a vacation this week, as of today I will have no children, no husband, and no job to deal with. To me this is a real vacation, I don’t need to go anywhere. I’ve been at my job for 2 years and this is the first real vacation I’ve had, a day off here or there or 4 days off with the influenza being the only break I’ve had. What this means is lots of time to catch up on blogging, maybe do a little housework and just not have any responsibilities other than those that I want.

Chemical Princess has released this brand new dress for the Tie Me Up event, this dress is very different than her typical dresses in the fact that there are color options, amazing colors. There are 6 transparent, 6 non-transparent, 5 see-through mesh patterns, 7 solid trims, and 7 mesh trims.
