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.

Better Life

Yesterday was the preliminary hearing for my soon to be ex-husband on the child molestation charges, my daughter and I were both subpoenaed but thankfully there was a continuance. I don’t know if the lawyer he got was smart enough to tell him to waive his right to this hearing since they have him dead to rights, or if the lawyer was just completely unprepared and so he asked for more time. Either way, my daughter did not have to testify yesterday and now we wait to see if this goes to trial. I just wish this whole nightmare was over and that I could start giving my children a better life, the life they deserve.

I decided some time ago that I am not a decor blogger, I’m not good at making scenes and putting stuff together, but when I went to Collabor88 yesterday and I saw these amazing items I just had to create a scene. SAYO has this awesome backdrop, it comes with a color change HUD to customize it and it’s just fabulous. There are six colors to choose from. The fireplace is from Pilot+Can’t Even, it comes in two different colors sold individually and the chaise is just gorgeous. The chaise is available in PG and adult versions. The PG version that I chose comes with single and couple poses and a texture change option for the cushion and back of the chaise.

I wanted a new skin, I am pretty sure I never blog the same skin twice unless I forget to change it but I realized that Glam Affair would have something brand new at Collabor88 and I wasn’t disappointed. Created for Lelutka mesh heads this skin is stunning and comes with eyeshadows and lipsticks to compliment it. I used the lipstick but chose to feature a brand new eyeshadow from Mesange. Yes, I am still wearing my Lelutka May bento mesh head.

Indian Summer

I have been a bit cryptic lately, I couldn’t discuss what was going on until a conclusion had been reached. Yesterday, my soon to be ex-husband was arrested on sexual abuse charges of a minor child, my minor child. It was happening for over two years, with myself none the wiser. He convinced her that I knew what was going on and not only approved but had basically given him my blessing to have sex with my 15-year-old daughter. He will go to prison, he confessed on tape to having sex with her, and I can only hope that he gets what’s coming to him when he does.

Masoom is back at Cosmopolitan with this sexy new sweater, the off-shoulder style is super fun and the HUD controls it individually. You can change each side to a different color if you choose to but only in the fatpack. There are 18 individual colors for purchase and has materials enabled. This will fit your Maitreya, Hourglass, and Belleza Freya and Isis mesh bodies. You can pick this up at Cosmopolitan until November 4.

When I first saw this skirt I knew I was going to have to buy it, look at those amazing folds. This is available at Uber right now in 21 colors and a fatpack. The waistband is HUD driven and each color has two versions available, tight and top. Tight is normal, to wear with your shirts and tops that fit over your skirt or rise above it, tight is to wear with bodysuits and tucked in shirts. Make sure to try a demo, this is NOT guaranteed to work with every top/bodysuit.

I made a post using a pair of thigh high boots from Utopia. Never in a million years did I think that would lead me to my being invited to the blogger group but it did! Utopia makes some stunning shoes, this set comes with 9 preset colors, a multi-color texture change HUD, and five glossiness settings with advanced lighting. You can get your hands on these stunning boots at the inworld location or the Marketplace.

I wasn’t sure exactly what pose I wanted, went through several that I already have in my inventory and none quite gave me the WOW I was looking for. I started searching the marketplace and I found what I was looking for from Glitterati. This pose comes with two coffee cups, one for poses and one for everyday use. It also comes with five, individual non-bento poses.

I did something today, something I’ve been debating over for quite some time and just did. I tried the Lelutka May head about the time the male mesh head was released and thought it was so pretty. I went back, grabbed the demo again and pushed the buy now button. I’m not sure that I will ever take this head off.

I decided to pull my October Lelutka Powder Pack out again as well, mostly as a reminder of the amazing things that you get when you order your Powder Pack, which tomorrow, October 31 is the last day to pre-order for 1500L.

New Rules

My thoughts are still a cluster, a jumble. I want to spill about what is going on my life but I can’t. Hopefully, the conclusion will come this weekend and I can finally get my thoughts out and make sense of them. In the meantime, I am going to blog. I am currently unemployed and I’m not used to it. I have always worked and starting this Monday I have to really put my heart into finding a new job. In the interim, you get to put up with my blog spam.

At first, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with this picture, I got early access to Kinky Event and there were so many amazing items I couldn’t decide where to start. Kinky Event is a monthly event where some of the top designers channel their naughty nature to bring you some of the most alluring items on the grid. Tabou creator, Glamsoglamour, has branched out into some amazing hair and you can get this stunning do at Kinky Event. This hair comes in 3 sizes and in all available color packs, there is no style HUD for this hair and it is a rigged hair so it is not resizeable.

This top is from SYS and is made for mesh bodies only. It comes in 5 colors individually or as a fatpack. You can wear the top, which is the bra and pull together or you can wear the bra and pull separately. Each color comes with a solid pull and bra as well as a two-tone bra.
Top (new): SYS – Samhain Top – Kinky Event
This pose was the only pose I could possibly use with this picture, from Foxcity and available at The Secret Hideout you can purchase 6 poses individually or get 7 in a fatpack. It comes with a color change crop with a cute heart and is worth every Linden.

For quite some time I’ve been seeing ads from Utopia, amazing shoes with stunning textures splashed across my Facebook feed. I’ve spent time drooling over the awesome creations but hadn’t purchased any. For this blog, I decided to look through the Marketplace and found these remarkable thigh high stiletto boots. Available in three colors or a fatpack and made for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza and TMP I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

Sayo is at the Halloween round of N°21 with this fantastic backdrop, from the moment I saw it I contemplated how I could possibly incorporate it into a blog post and well, here it is. This scene is modifiable to create the perfect setting for your picture.

I haven’t recently tried out Spirit skins, another creator that I drooled over the Facebook ads and kept putting off purchasing. This skin is from an older gacha and can be played at the main store location. The machine contains skins for Lelutka and Catwa and for each there are 2 rares and 12 commons. They are just beautifully created.
