A New York Christmas

Sometimes my pictures go through many metamorphoses, sometimes the first shot is perfect. Today was one of those that I edited and re-edited, took multiple shots, and finally came up with a photo array that I could be proud of. I carefully chose each item I wanted to feature today and I wanted pictures that did them justice. I hope you agree that the end result was worth the effort.

Yes, this is the third time I am sharing this tree from Swallow, but look how pretty it is. Today I chose the red and gold version to share. This tree comes in four colors in two prim options for each color. You could literally have a tree in every room of your home. They are copiable and modifiable which is how this tree is so little in comparison to my previous two blogs. If you’d like to see the other options I blogged check out O Christmas Tree and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

The New York backdrop is from a gacha set by RAMA. This set includes 7 commons and 3 rares. This rooftop scene is one of the amazing rares you can win by playing.

I also included, once again, this amazing garland from SAYO. This garland, along with it’s matching wreath is available right now at FaMESHed. It is modifiable so this time I resized it to fit where I needed it to and changed the ribbons from white to red.

The bar and super cute lights were to add ambiance. The bar is from Moon’s Artistic Creations and it includes a giver script that will hand you a drink. Perfect for any party. The lights, from Half Deer, come with 3 different coiled types and are lit up. I think that both of these items just added fantastically to my party atmosphere.

Okay, so I’ve shown you all the fun decor but what about my look? The newest round of Designer Showcase is open and Tori’s Stylez is there with this fabulous gown. It’s perfect for your holiday parties or a night out with that someone special. This dress comes in two versions, satin or lace and can be purchased in 28 individual colors, a pastel or midnight fatpack or a complete fatpack including all colors plus bonus colors.

Who says tattoos can’t be classy and formal? Not me that’s for sure and I wanted to share with you this stunning tattoo by Absence. It was released for the brand new Distrcit 23 event that started in November and is coming back December 23. It is at this time not available on the Marketplace and she does not have an inworld store, but keep an eye out because this tattoo is amazing. The HUD has both fresh and faded options for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, as well as Omega and Catwa, face tattoo for the neck. I didn’t realize this event was already closed and had a hard time finding an end date so I apologize for the lateness.

This pose set is from none other than the amazing Foxcity, a 7 pose pack when you purchase the greedy pack these bento poses are perfect for your classic look.

This picture alone went through 3 versions. I had a really hard time getting just the right look for this picture. Normally, when I wear a formal gown I do some type of updo hair but I wanted something a little more edgy to go with the entire look. I decided to head over to Lamb Hair since I hadn’t been there for a while and discovered not one, but two group gifts. Join the free Lamb group and pick up this stunning hair.

7 Deadly Skins makes all of her skins Omega friendly and bases them on one particular head, however, I have never had any problem getting them to look amazing on whichever head I choose to wear. Today I chose a skin that is actually based on the head I wear. Made for Lelutka May this skin is available in two skin types; freckled and plain, with 9 skin tone options per box. There is also an optional shape and lipgloss set for purchase as well. This skin is available today at eBento until December 30.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

It’s that time a year again, one filled with joy and happiness and challenges from Lawrence Pryce. I don’t know what possessed me to say yes, again! I did though and at least this time there was no zits. Honestly, setting up something for this challenge is lots of fun and I’m glad I could participate. Can’t wait until the next one.

I was given two items to create a Christmas picture with, I will cover those a little later, but that’s the easy part. For this challenge, the items given to me by Lawrence Pryce had to be visible in my picture but other than that the rest was up to me. I chose to create a Christmas morning scene and to do that I found the perfect backdrop from RAMA. This is an older gacha and you can still play for it at the inworld gacha store.

To complete the scene I decided to reuse a couple of items I have already blogged but they’re so gorgeous I just to share them again. This stunning tree is from Swallow and includes a low definition and a high definition tree in four colors. It is modifiable and can be resized.

There are no specific mesh bodies sizes included and this sweater is sold as a fatpack only with a HUD that includes 8 textures. There is also a pair of boots included which I did not feature.

Let it Snow

I won early access to FaMESHed, I never win any of this stuff so I was completely floored. Getting to go before the event opened and seeing all the amazing items that the designers had created for this monthly event. I got so many amazing things to share with you today and I can’t wait to show you all. I woke up to snow this morning, I am not ready for it but here it is so might as well use it to inspire me.

 Once upon a time, I blogged for this amazing group called Goose. I didn’t feel my decor abilities were up to the expectation to truly create amazing sceneries with Tyrek’s products and I stepped away, but I still have this amazing stuff and use it whenever I can, just not in an official capacity. I used a house that Goose released as a gacha rare quite some time ago and decorated it up with this amazing garland and wreath from SAYO, available right now at FaMESHed. The garland is modifiable so you can change the bow and hangar color if you choose, but I chose to leave it the white that is in the package. This garland and wreath are also copyable to create a stunning setting for your holiday decor.

I have been waiting for the right moment, the right inspiration to share this amazing outfit with you. Available from ChicModa during Whimsical this set includes a shirt, sweater, and skirt and are all sold individually. Fatpacks of each item are available but there is not a fatpack of the entire outfit. This outfit is fit for Maitreya and both Slink bodies only. The jacket has a HUD to control the outside layer, inside layer, belt, and buttons. As always, Kim is 100% original mesh created by our very own SassyNitely.

When I first saw these boots at Prism Events’ Tannebaum I knew they were just what I needed to complete my look. The wedge booties with the optional legwarmers are made for midfoot, which is so rare anymore and I love it! Reign really outdid themselves with this release. These shoes are made for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza.

My second amazing find at the all-new round of FaMESHed was this spectacular hair from RunAway, I just love her hair. I mean really, what isn’t to love about it? I always choose the essentials pack because you never know when I’ll want to change from blond, it could happen. There is one size hair in the pack and it also comes with an Omega hairbase HUD, a pack of standard hairbases, color change HUD for the hat and 4 hairstyles. This hair is just superb.

Foxcity does some of my favorite bento poses in Second Life, her creativity is just astounding. I don’t know where she comes up with all her ideas but I am sure glad she does. Me Time is a set available at On9 and comes in 6 individual poses or a greedy pack that includes one exclusive pose as well. You also get makeup bottles in the fatpack set to use in your photography.

I have to thank my dear friend Ember Adored for pushing me toward this photograph. She’s a pushy woman and highly opinionated but she’s usually right. Whenever I am unsure of a shot or just want her opinion I will share it with her and she will tell me her honest critique of it and then suggest better ways to accomplish what I’m trying to do. The result is what you see to the right. Sometimes I astound myself. Glam Affair is at Collabor88 with this stunning skin made for the Lelutka Greer bento mesh head, I chose to wear it on my Lelutka May head and it’s just as stunning. 7 Tones are available for individual purchase, no fatpack is available and it includes lipsticks and eyeshadows with the skin HUD.

If you haven’t played PocketGacha you really don’t know what you’re missing out on. This innovative, HUD-based gacha system is the greatest thing to hit the grid since bento. Every month on the 15th, simply add the HUD to yourself, open it, give it permission to deduct Lindens, and play your heart away. This month Lotus was in PocketGacha with an 18 eye pack, 16 commons and 2 rares. These eyes are pretty fabulous. The applier is made for Catwa only but have no fear, there is a set of mesh eyes included as well.

Did I mention that the brand new round of FaMESHed opened today? Well it did and with it came some stunning gifts from the amazing creators. That’s right, join the FREE FaMESHed group, wear your tag and get several FREE gifts. Two of the items available from these amazing designers is the bracelet from Aphorism and the necklaces from Cae. The bracelet is as is, no metal change HUD or anything but it’s pretty awesome as is. The necklaces include a color change HUD that has 3 metals, 15 gemstones and either naughty or nice engraved on the face. There is a long and short version of the necklace, I chose to wear both.

The free stuff is awesome but as usual, the designers have pulled out all the stops to bring you their very best. When I saw these rings from Empyrean Forge I just had to have them. Made for Maitreya only and different rings for each hand (I really wish I could have shown you both sides but you can check out the ad photo here). There is a control HUD that contains 4 metals and 8 accents. These rings are just too cute to pass up.

I just can’t tell you enough how much I truly love SlackGirl and how honored I am to blog for her.

Since this song came out I have been waiting for a styling to fit the mood of the song and I finally found it with this post today. I’m completely addicted to this song and to top it all off I got a message accepting me as a blogger for The Makeover Room! I am so stoked about that, I love trying new makeups, skins, eyes and everything else and sharing them with my readers. This is a fabulous opportunity for me.

Today is the last day to get to the November round of Designer Showcase and when you’re there you can grab this awesome top and skirt set from Prism.

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.

Beautiful Trauma

I sometimes wonder at the success of my blog, or the lack thereof, whichever you’d like to call it. I wonder frequently if my little snippets of information included with each picture are too much or if people truly do enjoy reading the information I provide. Do my descriptions of products offer help to those deciding what to purchase or would it just be better to list out the item in a style card version? I debate constantly on my blog, should I keep doing it or not, why do I do it? The answer is simple, I love photography, I love blogging so I continue doing it for me, no one else. Every time I get rejected by a group I would truly love to blog for, one that I admire a lot, I question the validity of my blog. It passes but there it is. I do this for me and for the amazing designers that have entrusted me with their products.

It would be so easy just to list the stuff I’m wearing and let you find out the perks of them on your own but then I couldn’t tell you things like this dress is made for Maitreya only and comes in 11 colors. There is no fatpack for this dress and you’re looking at a ticket price of 299L each but it’s just stunning and well worth the Lindens for this original mesh creation.

One of my favorite memories of any vacations is the trip down Route 66. From Chicago to Natchez, where we ran out of time and had to get back to Nashville to catch our plane. We went up Natchez Trace, which we called “Teletubby Highway” for some reason :D

I just loved driving along that old road, running into a Pontiac meeting in the beautiful village of Pontiac, loved how we discovered the tomb of Abraham Lincoln. Not to mention that old, cute Motel that looked just like we know it from the movies.

I wanna go back. I wanna go down all the way to the end. I might start playing the lottery^^

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.

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.

From a Distance

Bette Midler, this woman has long since been an idol of mine. She’s funny, serious, talented, and just an amazingly wonderful woman. From characters like Winifred that make you laugh until you cry to songs that bring tears to your eyes, she’s the complete package as a performer. I don’t normally do this, but today I’m going to share the lyrics of this song because it’s just as relevant now as it was in 1987 when it was released.
From a distance, the world looks blue and green
And the snow capped mountains white
From a distance, the ocean meets the stream
And the eagle takes to flight
From a distance there is harmony
And it echoes through the land
It’s the voice of hope
It’s the voice of peace
It’s the voice of every man
From a distance, we all have enough
And no one is in need
And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease
No hungry mouths to feed
To read the full lyric go here
I am constantly asking the question “why?” Why is there so much hate, so much anger? Why do we have to hurt and kill each other? Why do we have to belittle and berate those that are different from us? So many questions that have no answers. I dream of a world where people can get along, respect one another, and live in harmony. Maybe I’m a dreamer but it’s better than accepting things the way they are.

This gorgeous dress from AnaMarkova is what inspired my song, whenever I think of Bette Midler I think diva, I think old school and this dress just totally made me think of this classy woman I admire so much. Available at Designer Showcase right now it is available in 7 colors and is fit for Maitreya, Belleza, TMP, Tonic, Slink, and standard bodies. When I put this dress on I couldn’t wait to share it with everyone.

Thinking of Bette, of course, led me to look for a pose that would suit the diva and I was in luck because Something New released this awesome mic pose for TWE12VE. This set comes with the prop and pose.

The location was easy to choose as well. SAYO released these awesome backdrops for The Epiphany round in July 2017. I love backdrops, they make it so easy for me to create a stunning scene. This set has one rare and 8 commons. I just love SAYO’s backdrops because they are all like little rooms in a larger building. Fantastic work.

When I saw this newest release from Phoenix for Hairology I was so excited, it comes two different fits with a style HUD that includes 3 styles and a no bang options. I love the fitted mesh option because it bounces when you have physics on, creating a more natural hair.
