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!!)

My Fairytale

30268157711_24df4c20fb_b

Now, you’re all looking at the picture and thinking this is going to be a mushy romantic post…and that might make a perfectly typical fairytale… but that wouldn’t be mine.

So let’s start it off…..

“Once upon a time there was a shopaholic girl who had an Oasis away from the uglies and drama that can sometimes be found in our pixel world.There were gachas, and shoes, blueberry booty’s and cupcakes….

It wasn’t all shopping with the girl, in an effort to bring beauty to the world, she started a blog. It was filled with things to enhance anyones life, and she was so proud of her efforts. Of course, the evils of the world were not willing to let the pretty lass spread such beauty and threw in challenges of things like a wicked thing called RL, dumb boys pretending to be men, they even stole her muse for a time. She battled it all, even took up a quest to enter the fabled halls of the famed Blueberry, proclaiming she would be back leading the world to beauty once more….

And then, the greatest challenge of all….

a full sim.

Events were missed, days blurred in the race against tier running out… she even wore the same shorts and tank top for 3 days!

Just as things were at their darkest, and the girl was struggling with the stress, the prims, the sheer size of it all…. a bright light appeared, it was Epiphany. In all its glowing wonderousness, the gacha, the cute, the shoes, the zombicorns, that renowned Blueberry booty with all sorts of magical Halloween delights.

She dusted off her trusty hud, donned her cloak of invisibility and with a prayer to the great power of Orryx, made it into the promised land.

Returning to her Oasis, she was swept into the arms of her King to enjoy a night of celebration.

And the girl was once again able to tell the world of wondrous things.

The End”

Ok, so I am still suffering with the effects of moving from a half sim to a whole (new) sim and having it open in 5 days. And I was feeling terribly guilty for saying I’m back to blogging and then vanish again….so a creative story seemed best.

The picture was taken in the almost finished Kawaiiland at the Oasis. There is a full sim to come explore and enjoy…so please do.

And now for the details

Just one of the guys?

I woke up this morning to find a note form the blog manager at 7 Deadly Skins. I have to say, having people say they like your blog and photos is kinda awesome. Knowing they WANT you to blog their things is a pretty sweet rush.

Last night I helped a friend with a makeover. been in SL for 2 years, and ….shirtless, super dark tattoos, really bad hair,no ao…and some of the ugliest shoes I had ever seen. Ironically, I took him to 7DS to get a skin, so I already knew about the sale they’re having right now. ( $100l skins people!!!) He is thankfully now in the world of mesh, and looks like someone I’d be snuggled up to. ( A girl needs her eye candy!)

Having helped with his, and looking through this wonderful box of skins from 7DS, I came up with the greatest of all ideas. How to get a great looking male avi on a budget.

The hair is from Mina, and while I got it as a group gift a bit ago, it is on sale at the store for $ 250, and it comes with the shaved bases. The shape was  a free modifiable one off MP, which is honestly a very nice shape.

So yes, a shape,body and hair for under $350.

The cargo pants I found are pretty nice, and were $105 on the MP, shoes… they’re Flite and sorry to say, I can’t remember the price, it was more of a “Shut up and take my money.” moment. I’m just glad they had mens sizes in there!

Alright now that I have totally freaked out all my friends and anyone who came to the Oasis while I was taking pics…go shopping guys. You have no excuse to NOT look hot now.
