Pretty Woman

This is one of two blogs I am going to post today. I took the picture for this blog last night, fully intending on blogging it first thing this morning. Well, I’m a little later getting to it but here it goes.

Powder Pack for January is a little different than past Powder Packs, as previously mentioned in this blog. Starting this month Powder Pack will only release one, starting with Lelutka. You will have from the first of the month until 11:59 pm on the 16th of the month to reserve your pack for only 1500L. On the 17th it will be delivered directly to you with no further work on your part. Forgot to register? You can still buy past pack for the full price of 3000L.

This month Amara Beauty has a lovely new skin, it includes a full skin tone HUD. Avi-Glam has a set of lashes and eyes and The Face has a lovely makeup palette.

Sometimes the words I want to say are better left unsaid, sitting firmly in my mind, pushed to the back of my brain to ponder on at another time. When this happens, however, I don’t really know what to say, what to write about. The thoughts swirl around my brain but they are better there than out in the open.

Designer Showcase is starting in less than 2 days and when it does you can head on over and pick up this fabulous dress from Jumo. This dress is fit for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and standard fitmesh. It includes a HUD with 25 unique textures and a stunning pair of earrings that resize on touch. This is full-length gown and is just gorgeous.

It may be past midnight on New Year’s Eve but that doesn’t mean you can’t still party like it’s 1999. I wanted to pair this stunning dress with a hair worthy to show off and I did that easily with this beautiful hair from Doe. This gacha set includes 14 commons and 4 rares and also includes a solid and blinking Christmas light headband. I just love Doe hair, the textures are so realistic and the hairs are so cute.

This gorgeous skin is from 7 Deadly Skins and is coming to 4Mesh on January 12. I’m so thrilled that I am now blogging for 4Mesh and it’s even better that I can feature one of my amazing creators at the same time. This skin comes in a freckled and non-freckled version. The freckled version of this skin comes with a body skin that does not have freckles but you can purchase the body skin applier separately at the main store location. When you buy the body skin HUD it comes with plain, beauty marks, mild freckles, and heavy freckles. This skin is based on the LAQ bento mesh heads but I am featuring it on my Lelutka May.

Each month you will have the opportunity from the first of the month until 11:59 pm on the 16th to purchase your pack for 1500L, on the 17th it will be delivered to you with no further work on your part. I love Powder Pack and have discovered some amazing skin and makeup creators I never even knew existed until this product. If you miss out on the pre-order you can purchase old packs for the full price of 3000L.

9 to 5

I am dedicating this post to all the hardworking designers and bloggers in Second Life. There has been so much back and forth lately, mostly on Facebook and some on places like SL Secrets, that I thought it’d be nice to remind people that what designers do isn’t easy, nor is what bloggers, at least the ones that are in it for the right reasons. It seems to me that there are people who believe what designers do just happen, that there is no work to it. The truth of the matter is they have to think of a design, create it in a 3D meshing program, rig it for umpteen bodies, look for imperfections, upload it, texture it, box it, price it, make vendor ads, and sometimes they do this all on their own. Some designers are lucky and have a team to help them with aspects of the process but most are not.

Bloggers don’t have to create the items but what we do is just as difficult, picking items from various creators to put together in a showcase that make the designers look their best. It takes time to style, build a scene, pick a pose, take pictures, edit, and then create a blog no matter what time of blog you do. Yes, there are some bad apples out there but not all of us and we should all be respected for what we do individually not as a collective. The last time we check we are human not The Borg.

This decor set is what actually inspired this entire post, the decor, outfit, and writing. Paper Moon is at Gacha Guardian with Creator Burnout. This set includes 10 commons and 2 rares plus an awesome Gift of the Guardians. I love that the rare laptop shows reminders about setting up for events, photoshop, a 3D mapping program, and IM popups. This is truly the life of a designer, always thinking, always creating, all the while trying to have some kind of life. It is not easy and a designer should be respected for their craft.

The skin I chose is from Spirit and is actually a new year’s eve gift for group members. The group is free to join and this skin comes in two tones and is made for Catwa only, I’m showing it on Catwa Catya. It also comes with a shape and although I don’t know what head it’s made for it looks pretty good with Catya. The shape is modifiable but I left it as is to show you how it looks out of the box. You do have to buy the body skin appliers separately if you don’t already own them.

I chose makeup from Indulge Temptation and Avi-Glam as well as lashes from AlaskaMetro. The eyeshadow from Indulge Temptation is from The Makeover Room and works for Catwa only, it comes in 12 individual color palettes. The lipstick and eyelashes are from December’s Catwa Powder Pack. Powder Pack has changed up how they do things starting with the new year. They will rotate the Lelutka and Catwa boxes every other month. This month will be the Lelutka pack and can be pre-ordered for 1500L. If you wait for the release the price goes up to 3000L and all previous packs can be purchased at the full price as well.

The moral of this story is think before you complain, designers and bloggers alike don’t have it easy. Most of us do it because we love it, for some designers, this is their income, their livelihood and spread bad words about them without facts hurts their business. Talking badly about bloggers as a whole makes it hard for the good ones to get work. So just think before you speak.

Everyday is Christmas

 

I woke up yesterday morning to amazing new, I’d been accepted as an official blogger for Llorisen. I am so excited to be able to incorporate the fantastic builds from this amazing creator into my new decor attempts. I’ve had some really encouraging comments and thoughts on my decor scenes and I appreciate all of them. Decor is daunting to me, always has been and I tried to break out of my shell once before but stepped away because I felt that my scenes didn’t do justice to the amazing creators providing me items. This time I’ve had a little help and take my time in building a scene, moving items to fit my pictures. So I am going to give this an honest effort and do my very best to bring you stunning items for our absolutely amazing and creative decor creators in Second Life.

Llorisen is at FaMESHed with this fabulous, four-bedroom skybox. What I love the most about this skybox is that it comes with optional wall and flooring HUDs, you can paint your walls to be mix and match or all one color and each room is individually changeable. The skybox can be purchased for 499L and each texture HUD for 149L. I didn’t do a shot of each room, I’m not that confident yet in my decorating capabilities but I chose the main room and a cute Christmas setting.

I included the texture change tree from Jian, presents from Astralia, decor from Moss & Mink, Chez Moi, The Loft & Aria, Half Deer and Krescendo. There is so much cute holiday decor out right now you don’t want to miss out.

O Christmas Tree

 

Decor blogging is not my strong suit, this is why pre-made backdrops are some of my favorite photo accessories. Once in a while, something truly amazing scrolls across my Facebook timeline and I’m driven to try my hand at decor blogging again. This is also the only time I rethink and retake my photos, several times in some cases. I’ve been trying to figure out ways to make my blog stand out from the other bloggers in Second Life, to be honest, there are some truly amazing bloggers and I often compare myself to them. I try not to, I have my own style, my own ideas and I don’t want to copy anyone, but I would like to think that someday I will be as good as they are.

Today I want to share with you this amazing tree from Swallow Designs, the entire reason I decided to try my hand at decor blogging again. Available right now at Cosmopolitan Events it’s available in two different prim counts and comes with four colors. I chose the silver one because I just love the beauty of this tree.

Black Bantam released these adorable little hounds as a gacha at Tannenbaum. 75L a play and you have the chance to win 3 common puppies, one common decor, and one rare puppy. These guys are so cute, static decor only. They do interact with you through local chat and a pop-up menu.

Fake Happy

This year is going to be the most difficult year I’ve had when it comes to the holidays. I lost my stepfather in January, my grandfather in August, decided to divorce my husband only to find out he was a sexual deviant who had been molesting my daughter for over two years and so much more. I’m trying to keep positive but to be perfectly honest, it’s hard. So I’m faking happy and doing what I can to make things good for my children.

RIOT is participating in this year’s Sad November with this fabulous sweater dress. It comes in a total of 35 colors, 30 individually or 35 in the fatpack. This dress is made to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink and comes with a HUD to change the sleeves and hem in every color pack. You only have until December 2 to get to Sad November, so go now!

This hair is also available at Shiny Shabby from RAMA Salon. The moment I saw it I knew I had to have it. The long, tight, over the shoulder braids, are just fabulous. There are a total of 6 fits with this hair and it comes with a color change HUD for whichever color pack you chose. There is no style HUD but do you really need one with this hair?

FAD is a monthly, themed event that opens on the 24th of each month.

I love blogging for Powder Pack, I get to try skins and makeups from creators that I admire and sometimes have never heard of. It such a fun pack of items that you can get every month for both Catwa and Lelutka and only cost 1500L on pre-order. Amara Beauty included another gorgeous skin pack this month and Zibska is back with lovely makeups.

I had an idea for the shoes I wanted to go with this super cute dress and that didn’t work out. However, when I went to Shiny Shabby I saw these super cute, over the knee, flat-soled boots from Empire and I knew they’d be perfect. Only available as a fatpack the body and sole of the boot are independently color change. I love these boots so much and I’m so glad I saw them.

Club Can’t Handle Me

Sometimes I have so many things I want to say, so many thoughts swirling through my brain that I can’t really make sense of them, but today I want to say how grateful I am. I am grateful to all the designers and blog managers who have given me a chance to showcase their wonderful creations. I am grateful to Kay Weston of Image Essentials giving me the chance to be her blog manager and help her create a team that will take us to the next level. I am grateful to the wonderful bloggers that have taken on the calling of blogging for Image Essentials and the hard work and dedication that they do. Most of all I am grateful to be able to do this, to take items from these amazing creators and bring them to life for my readers to enjoy.

PocketGacha is in its third month and the items are just as amazing now as they were in the first two round. Varonis is in the November edition of PocketGacha with some stunning items. This gacha set has 10 commons and one rare to win.

A few months ago I messaged the creator of MODA, my application had been sitting in limbo for a little while and I thought I would touch base with her. It was the perfect time since she’d just lost a blogger and was looking to fill a spot and I got a chance to blog for an amazing creator. I have never regretted my decision to contact her and I’m hoping she hasn’t either. These gorgeous, thigh-high boots are available at anyBODY right now. As with all MODA shoes, it comes with an extensive HUD to customize them to your needs.

Just Magnetized is back in this month’s Catwa Powder Pack with an all-new hairbase and that influenced my decision on which hair to showcase this time around. Powder Pack is released twice a month with some of the best skins and makeups on the grid for Catwa and Lelutka mesh heads, you can pre-order them for only 1500L or wait until it’s released and pay 3000L. I have never been disappointed in all the months I have been blogging for Powder Pack with the items that I receive.
