Bad to the Bone

Last year I had the amazing opportunity to blog for a group raising funds to help pitbulls that needed rescuing. When I was asked to do it again, I had to…it’s such an awesome cause that is worth supporting. I also have the wonderful treat of again having help from Spikedwithfashion. The perks of having a very photogenic fiance. For all his info, and his take on the photo, please visit his blog in the link.

Rally to Rescue is once again giving us a chance to help make the difference in the lives of animals in need of rescue. The event runs from March 1-20 and has 35 shops participating with 100% of all sales being donated.

I got you babe

They say our love won’t pay the rent
Before it’s earned, our money’s all been spent
I guess that’s so, we don’t have a plot
But at least I’m sure of all the things we got

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged here, we’ll just say life seems to take its own path when you think you have it figured out. Truth be told, I’d likely still be procrastinating about a blog post were it not for the fact someone very special decided to get into blogging, and asked me to help. So before I get into much more, check out Spike’s new blog here at Spikedwithfashion. He’ll be covering mens fashion in SL, and I can’t wait to see how his blog grows!

First, I want to say how sad I am that this will be the only joint blog of ours with Swag Bag items in it. While I understand the stresses of getting mens items for a monthly subscription, it was very disheartening to hear its run its course. As an avid shopper, this is a plea to all mens designers out there, PLEASE start making more available. There is the want, there is the market….the men of Second Life deserve great things too.

Second, I have learned today not to toss out old gacha you think you will never use…case in point, boxing gear….by the way if anyone needs backpacks or sports tops, let me know.

Now, all those fun things about me have changed, and I know I need to do an update, but here’s the quick rundown… Vista Bento hands, Catwa Catya Bento head, Maitreya Lara body, Dee Talez skin because ❤

Spike’s items are here

What I’m wearing:

Hair: Truth VIP February gift (get in that group!!)

Outfit: Khoi + Rep epiphany gacha @ Represent

Socks: Izzie’s tube socks

Shoes: Reign/Flite Tayler’s

There might be a lil dust on the blog?

29478000094_2438e13f7c_b

There might be a little dust on the bottle
But don’t let it fool ya about what’s inside
There might be a little dust on the bottle
It’s one of those things that gets sweeter with time

It’s been a while… again. My pixel life has a way of keeping me busy. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to blog, it’s more of a physics thing. You know an object in motion stays in motion, and object at rest stays at rest. (look at that a fashion blog with educational value! Newton’s first law of motion just in case you were wondering)

What prompted a restart of the blog posts? A few things…. my little corner of SL seems to be in that happy grove. I’ve gotten my muse back, and am feeling creative again (my sim has noticed that creativity) and there was this little mention of a certain designer looking for bloggers….how could I resist that temptation?

Blueberry, is by far one of my favorite designers. I don’t think there are many on the grid who haven’t heard of her “blueberry booty” and the way it transforms a nice booty into this amazing work of art (I know I’ve commented a few times about it in the past). The fit of her clothing is amazing. While I don’t have a slink body to say first hand it fits all the popular mesh bodies perfectly, I haven’t had an issue with either Belleza or Maitreya. The top I am wearing has become one of my favorites for that casual, comfy side of SL. I’ve paired it with shorts today, but it goes nicely with skirts, a few jeans, and a few bottoms from other designers as well (I know long tops are sometimes an issue when matching up)

You may also notice I look a lil different…. you can thank that bestie of mine for that.  After the Belleza update, I promised I would give the body another try…..I only wear Maitreya now when I really want to wear that outfit. The Belleza Isis has such nice curves to it, and that hud! If you haven’t tried it out yet.. go try Belleza….this is coming from a die hard Maitreya girl.

Still with me? Good.

Snapshot_233

When you gonna call
Don’t leave me brokenhearted
I’ve been waiting up
Let’s finish what we started, oh oh
I can’t seem to let you go

Ever have that one person that you wait for… and wait for…and wait for……?

Granted, most of it is my personality of not wanting to be like I’m a bother so I don’t get in there face and say ” A lil attention here please!” Still when you have a cute girl waiting….. you really need to smarten up before the cute girl does 😉

For now, retail therapy…. including trips to Migica (50% off summer sale!!!!)  N21, Tres Chic, and Shiny Shabby.

Just as a heads up, the capris I am wearing from Just Because are an N21 Exclusive, and they have a perfect fit. You don’t want to miss out on those.

“Something like a strong wind is coming over me
It’s got a hold of me, yeah
Thinking and doing things I shouldn’t be
I really shouldn’t be
Give it one more call
It’s one more “whatcha doin right now?”
It’s one more trip to my side of town and you walk right in
One more here we go again”

Rally to Rescue is in full swing now, and time for a few more goodies you can get for great deals, and do something good for those sweet pitbulls that need your help. I’m very pleased to see some of those big names in SL fashion helping out with the cause, and really happy to tell you about their items!

Blueberry has spoiled us with the very sexy Sabina dress, in a special fatpack….and it’s $400L. but before you stop reading now and tp over there just wait. Truth is also supporting Rally to Rescue with the Opal hair for only $200L (fatpack $500L). I am also really happy to be able to show off the Industrial Loft skybox from Unkindness (I’ve had a chance to blog their items a few times, and have always loved their things)

Anyhow… you have a few more days to get your items, and a few more days to go hang out at the Ghost Bully’s MC World and enjoy the events there… so … get shopping!!

Endless summer nights

It is technically STILL summer. I know pumpkin everything has invaded our world, but I am hanging onto that last little sliver of warm summer sun. That and I’ve been feeding my sl addiction of gacha since the Arcade is on once again….thankfully I got it my fix in only 3 trips, and should be safe till the next cute thing…

I did get the rare house from Scarlet Creative, and decided even if it doesn’t quite “go” with a beach sim, that it would be my new house…and that I kinda wanted to show it off (well, you get to see a wall and the floor at least) so the pics this time are in my home.

Moeko has designed this cute steampunk lolita dress with a shirt and stockings to go with it. I’ve taken pics to show you with and without the top, as personally, I love to show off those shoulders. And her matching shoes are so cute!

My hair is from Besoms lucky board, gotta love free hair!

And last but not least… my nails!! This is the last set of the three  that is available at Vintage & cool. I am still going to say Dark Passions has the best nails out there. Absolutely love hers ❤

Sometimes

Sometimes

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re just a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the Louisville Slugger
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together
Sometimes you’re gonna lose it all

Since getting back from my crazy long weekend of driving, I have lived life in a blur. Somehow, the 2 weeks that were left are all but gone and I have about 2 weeks worth of stuff to finish in 2 days. Procrastination FTW!

Needless to say, this has also made me be a lil more time constrained/ dead tired and not online as much….this post has been sitting here almost done for a few days now…

I’ve actually been wearing the outfit for like three days, since I didn’t want to forget what exactly it was that I had on…me in the same thing for 3 days NEVER happens.

All that said, I do look pretty damn cute, so I’ll let it slide.

Dark Passions is at the Thrift Shop with this super cute tied top and matching nails. Have to admit, I loved those scratch and sniff stickers when I was a kid.

My skirt, headband and shoes are part of the gacha prizes available at On the Boardwalk….

and my hair is from the Besom lucky letter boards. (yep, free hair!)

Here without you

Here without you

A hundred days have made me older
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
And I don’t think I can look at this the same

But all the miles that separate
Disappear now when I’m dreaming of your face

May have been listening to sappy music tonight as I was taking pictures, dealing with missing someone terribly and yea…

It also influenced the photo, and the choice of what to wear…funny how haunting a picture can come across without really meaning it to. It also speaks to the amazing items to be found at the Gacha Garden (yes I still need to make that super cute post) Junbug has the amazing gown I have on as their seed of inspiration, other gowns are rares, but in playing it… I did end up with a few gowns and matching sleeves.

The mask from Silvery K is so highly detailed that I would suggest you get the entire set. It is stunning.
