On The Beach

Today is a bit of a big day for me in RL... On Monday I found out that I was wanted for a job interview in a brand new museum which will be opening up in Amsterdam next month. Right now, on the day of the interview I've barely slept and feel like I am a deer caught in the headlights, I couldn't keep laying there in bed so now I'm awake and decided that I would talk to you. 
In my last post I ran away to the desert... Turns out that it wasn't a desert at all but it was in fact one of the prettiest beaches that I could find... Now I've been living on the deserted beach for a few days, I've settled in and even made a few friends hehe... 
It helped me a little that before I'd run away, I had popped into that lovely little event which is the Summerfest '16. The event itself is SO CUTE, I love the layout and the décor of it, but it's also stuffed full with tonnes of super goodies!!! 
So while I was on my new beach home I found an old boat and proceeded to turn it into a very comfy day-bed, or sun lounger perhaps is better to call it, covering it in some nautical themed cushions and using an old washed up anchor as décor. At least that's the way I'm telling it in the story, in reality this "Bateau Bed" comes complete with a heap of poses from brocante at Summerfest
While talking about Summerfest I have to point out some of the other awesome goodies that I grabbed at the event... My bikini bottoms are part of a collection from paper.arrow - called Cheekies - and I couldn't resist them with their little heart in the back. To match their polka dots though I had to have one of the Bee.Bu Olga Pom-Pom bags! 
There was one last thing I needed, and that was something fancy to drink... Luckily there were some coconuts laying around on the beach, and with a little dust bunny ingenuity it was like "BAM, awesome drink!" Least that was until my new MishMish friends the Toucans moved in and tried to get me to make them one! 
I guess though I have wasted enough time here... Time to get my butt into gear - no more running - let's go get that job!!

Running to the Desert to go Glamping!

I think I'm going to run away... Now that I have escaped from my padded cell, it's time to run away and become incognito... I will need a new alias and somewhere new to go!!
Perhaps somewhere warm? I dont normally like warm - I get overheated way too easily - BUT I'm thinking that it might be the last place that they'd look for me LOL...
Maybe I should run to somewhere hot and arid, I could move into  tent and become a Saharan Princess... Sounds like a hard life, but there may have been a little too much blood in my cell yesterday and that in the end may make things harder hehe...
I'm moving into La Vie... It's not as dry and arid as I thought, there is a lot of sea water yet it feels distant enough that people may not be able to find me here!
As for the incognito look and alias, I seem to be floundering at that... Perhaps I should change my name to something crazy like 'GoldenSunshine Princess of the Desert'?! Or is that level of crazy too much of a give-away that it's me?!
My look isn't really likely to fool anyone either is it?! I mean can't remove the tattoos, and when trying to wash my hair dye out it just became more of my natural red colour! Luckily I can hid it under this pretty headscarf - a style created by Moon called "Mim" that is available at UBER by the way! Whilst on the subject of UBER though, I want to mention this amazing necklace created by (Yummy) that you can also grab for yourself at the event.
I think that I am ready to live like a Bedowen in a tent... Could it be more like Glamping than Camping though please?! I'm so not good with sleeping outside LOL...

What is she wearing;
Scarf & Hair: MOON - Mim in Reds (Available until July 23rd at UBER)
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Necklace: (Yummy) - Tuareg Beaded Necklace in Turquoise (Available until July 23rd at UBER)

Top: Just BECAUSE - Felicia Top in Arctic
Skirt: Poisoned Diamond - Jeans Skirt in Pale
Pose: Signature Pose - It hurts, Pose Set 19 (Available until July 6th at GEN:Neutral)

Take Me Away to that Padded Room

It's crazy time, back to work on Monday morning BUT luckily this week should be a little less intense as I've only got one job to work this week!! It sounds like heaven but I have a very funny feeling that come Thursday I won't know what to do with myself LOL...
Perhaps I will let my crazed, dead dolly out to play... She's been locked away for a little while, but I feel the urge!
Mind you, she doesn't seem to mind being locked away all that much...
A nice padded room to sleep in, if you can ignore the blood... She's a prisoner in her own crazy mind, though perhaps she has the right idea and it is the safest place to be right now!
Wouldn't want to be the person that tries to get the gun from her though!
Her comfy padded cell is actually a pose prop created by Exposeur, but if you want to get your hands on one you need to move fast, the store's closing sale - in which everything is marked down by 80% off - only lasts until June 30th! The guards of her cell haven't been able to get close enough to remove the prison outfit that was her initial dress to replace it with a straight jacket, so she remains in her B.C.C Prisoner Outfit - part of the Jenny&Megan Gacha Collection for the latest round of The Arcade by the way - as she draws pictures in the blood that stains the cushions!
I want to finish today by sharing a song with you, one that I really love listening to, though you may be more familiar with the original version! Ever heard the song 'They're Coming To Take Me Away' by Napoleon XIV? Well, it's a cover version of that but it's much more fitting with the craziness that is Rudh - in this picture at least hehe - I freaking love this version of the song... Let me play for you the cover version of 'They're Coming To Take Me Away' by the Butcher Babies! Maybe while you're listening you might feel brave enough to try and get my gun hehe...
What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Bad Habit in 02

When the Weather is Windy - Hair Fair 2016 Photography Contest!

One of the biggest shopping events on the SL calendar is coming, and for those people that are addicted to buying Hair, this is one that is definitely worth knowing about... I'm talking of course about Hair Fair 2016, the biggest hair event in SL that raises thousands of dollars every year for an amazing cause, helping to give children with cancer a little less to worry about! 
Hair Fair brings together a truck-load of SL's Hair Designers - some well known, others not so - each offering exclusive styles to raise money for the charity "Wigs for Kids" and in the coming weeks I will be talking more about the charity, the event and some of the awesome hairstyles available... Yet for now I want to inspire you, and let you know about the AWESOME prizes you can win if you fancy entering the Hair Fair's "Whatever the Weather" Photography contest! 
A little inspiration perhaps from a crazy rambling blogger! I wanted to create something that fitted with the theme of the contest - although I myself won't be entering - I couldn't resist using another pose prop from Exposeur and letting my inner princess out again hehe...
The theme of the contest is "Whatever the Weather", so any contest entry MUST not only focus on hair, but also have a subtle - or not so subtle depending on your ideas - nod towards the weather... My princess was trapped in a tower, that was so high she was up with the clouds and caught by some strong winds, for example!
Now as with any competition, there are a few simple rules! Firstly you need to use one of the hairs from the list of participating designers - I cannot list these all here as there are a lot of them, so I advise that you check out the list on the Hair Fair Photography Contest Web Page before you begin snapping - the web page also shows the full list of rules for this contest, but one of the most important is that there is to be NO NUDITY! That's right people, keep your clothes on, this is an event for children after all... If you're that keen to get naked, you can do it later LOL... OH AND REMEMBER, HAIR IS IMPORTANT IN THE PICTURE, make it your focus LOL... It's HAIR FAIR after all!!! 
All that said though, you should check out the HUGE list of prizes for this contest... First prize winners get 3 full fatpacks from ALL Prize Sponsors, lots of store credits, a VR Studio and VIP Access to the event for themselves and 5 friends!! That's not all though, there will be prizes for second and third places AND 7 Runners Up - all of which will get early access for at least one friend to shop!!! 
HOW CAN YOU NOT WANT TO AT LEAST TRY TO ENTER?! Look I'll even show you the list of prizes per rank... I mean it sounds more than a little bit freaking awesome right?!
Anyway that's enough of me being overly excited!! Why not try your luck... I think I proved time and time again that you don't have to be the best photographer in the world for people to like your pictures, and you won't know unless you try... Perhaps this year you could be the Hair Fair 2016 Photo Contest Winner?!
Good Lucky Everyone!

Screw the Respected Institution!

Today is yet another day of shock for me.
I know that I've always felt foreign whilst living in Holland as a British person, but this morning at the announcement of the Brexit Results I will admit I shed a tear and found myself feeling even more like an outsider than usual. For those of you that don't know Britain has decided to leave the European Union, after such a close referendum vote was held that it could have ended with either outcome...
I never normally talk about Politics in public - it's one of those subjects that I feel it's always better to avoid, but this time I cannot hold it in, and I would love to know your views so please feel free to comment!
I will admit that I watched all of the debates with a balanced view, both sides made some fair points but in the end I wanted to stay. Britain was stronger as part of the EU, we were a powerful nation because of our position in the EU, yet without that who are we really? A small island nation that was once great... Look back 70 - 100 years and yes OK we were a great and powerful nation, but the world has changed so much I just hope we don't end up becoming the laughing stock of the world!
It feels like my home nation is either about to get fucked, or fuck itself!!
Sorry about my language, but I feel so crappy and needed to let out a bad word or two... You should hear the stream of cussing I'm doing in RL at the moment...
I'm trying not to think about it too much, but it honestly feels like the UK is about to be screwed like a prison bitch, which leads me to the reason I decided to use this photo of Mongo and I!
The UK always felt so big and strong, a great nation as represented by me in my police officer uniform... A voice of authority and a well respected insitution - the police uniform is a B.C.C Jenny&Megan Police Outfit from the current round of The Arcade by the way - although just for the record, I am in no means saying that other countries in Europe or outside of it are criminals LOL, I just realised how bad that looked... It's more to go with that feeling of authority that Britain feels it has, that and the fact that I wanted to use this awesome Exposeur "Prison Sex" pose prop...
On a side note, I'm also sorry to report that Exposeur is closing... Everything in store is marked down by 80% until June 30th - so I guess I will have to do a little shopping to put my mind at ease over the Brexit stuff...
I'm sorry for my rambling being a bit dramatic today... I just needed to get some thoughts off my chest... While I was writing this the UK's Prime Minister - David Cameron - has also resigned over the outcome of the vote and I am left feeling like a bit of an outsider in Holland - today's joke in my RL office has been "Passport please?!" to anyone that is British.
That's my views... I think we should have stayed... Without causing a fight though I'd like to ask you if you have any opinions and please feel free to share them with me as a comment... I'd love to know your views and reasons!

Video Games at His House

Last night a massive storm swept over Holland and so today the world is wet but far too humid to do anything that involves too much in the form of movement... 
So like me Rudh has just taken a shower and dropped down onto the couch with HellBone to let him play video games whilst she tries and fails to read a book LOL... He's far too into shouting at the games for my liking, I don't know why he needs to tell all the other characters off when clearly he's the one that has trouble aiming at things LOL... I didn't say that, don't tell him I said that LOL... BUT it does mean that for once, he was sat still long enough for me to shoot him!!
One of the newest poses from Come Soon - yes I am a blogger for their brand but even then I have to admit I am addicted because you get such an easy picture taking experience as the props are already there for you LOL - which you can get your hands on at the latest round of No.21, is the His House Collection. This pose is set number 1 and it really sums up the theme of things in our house when HellBone and I are off-line. I will include the original store ad for the pose at the end of this ramble, but this is seeing things from the other side. The TV is set to play something like Call of Duty - though you may want to correct me if I'm wrong, and HellBone convinced me that I had to change what was on the screen - hence why I have edited my photo for a screen shot of Payday: The Heist - his personal addiction! 
Still sometimes it's great to have a lazy day in the middle of the week right?!

Wannabe Mermaid

Waking up after having weird dreams has left me feeling a bit strange this morning... I don't know exactly what the dreams were about but I can remember a feeling of HUH? and as I wake up I am still feeling that same weird mix of emotions... I feel so weird in fact that I'm kinda at a loss for words, I have nothing of any value to say this morning and so when choosing something from my collection to blog, the best idea was something a little crazy... 
Hence the Wannabe Mermaid look... Someone told Rudh if she eats enough Mermaids, then she may become one, it's the sort of thing my mum used to tell me when I was a kid wanting a lot of something to eat, but anyway, that explains why she's bobbing around in the middle of the ocean - in a Signature Pose Floatie that you can grab at GEN:Neutral - chomping on a little mermaid and looking a little bit like she has an opalescent sheen to her skin. 
Just for those of you that are interested, no mermaids were harmed in the making of this photograph... This mouthie prop is a very old school gacha item from Evie's Closet - I'm not sure it's still even available - and the sheen to her skin is a new release from The White Crow at the latest round of the Kawaii Project
Perhaps sharing a picture of Rudh like this was not my best idea this morning, I still feel like I'm in that weird dream!! I must find more caffeine!! Wakey Wakey Rise and Shine!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Marissa Hair in FaMESHED Gift Edition 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Rainbow Effect: The White Crow - Rainbow Blush (Available until July 10th at Kawaii Project
