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?

This bento pose is brought to you by Nantra and comes with 6 bento poses with mirrors. I did choose three separate poses for my pictures. Pose 5, 4 and 3 respectively. You can only get these poses at Liaison Collaborative and self-rezzing props are included in the pose stand.

See why I changed the pose up? I wanted to be able to show you these amazing nails from SlackGirl and gloves from Masoom and give you a fantastic face shot as well. With so many amazing items sometimes it’s difficult to fit them all in and make it look good but I try hard. First up, these nails from SlackGirl are available at FAD Event. FAD is a monthly, themed event that opens on the 24th of each month.

Masoom is back with another fabulous pair of bento gloves. These gloves are made for Maitreya, Slink, and Vista. Available in 17 individual colors as well as a fatpack, each pack includes a metal change HUD as well.

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.

Window to the Soul

That’s what eyes are, they say. And if we think about it, it is true. Without even noticing most of the time, eyes are very important to us. We get nervous when someone we talk to wears sunglasses and we can’t see their eyes. We consider it rude if someone does not look into our eyes when we talk. A lover looks deep into the eyes of their loved ones. And if someone makes us nervous, we are not able to look into their eyes.

Those of you who know me already know, I love doing pictures, I am not always about fashion. Especially the monochrome pictures I love a lot.

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.

As soon as I saw this top I knew exactly what I wanted to pair it with, I headed on over to the November round of Collabor88 to pick up these amazing pants. Available from CandyDoll in 20 colors or a fatpack, the amazing laced cutouts on the hips of these pants really make them stand out, plus the wide flare leg is just awesome.

Sound of Silence

Sunday morning. One of my favorite times of the week. The house is silent, no one slamming doors, no sounds of footsteps in the stairway – just the beautiful sound of silence. That is when I love to snuggle up with a good book, some coffee and just enjoy the lazyness we usually don’t have time for.
And since it is sunday morning right now, I will stopp babbling, will grab me a good book and will exactly do what I just said – enjoy some lazyness :)
