Shelter from the Heat

The weather is warming back up in Holland... Apparently we are heading for some scorchingly hot weather, and although I don't mind the sunshine, it's not something I am really looking forward to!! Big Girls and Warm Weather don't really mix... Yet there is something about the sunshine that makes everything seem that much more smiley and smiley is a good thing!
I'm in a very happy mood - despite the fact that I am already stuck in the hellhole office that I work in - purely and simply because I just saw an email from my favourite bookstore in Amsterdam telling me they are having a "Books by Weight" sale again in just over a week!! Giddy with excitement I am, just giddy...
For now though to avoid the heat, and to work on my plan to beat the crowds at the sale, I'm going to hide and be devious!!!
The Bunker I'm using to hide in is actually not mine, it's Jack's - Jack's Bunker made by Consignment I should add - and in my defence I had to use his rather than mine as mine is stuffed full of shoes and clothes and all that kinda good stuff! Don't worry though I won't get lonely in here while I wait, I was greeted by Jack's Curious Kitten - from Jian!
I love my hiding in the bunker from the heat outfit too... A very very adorable Lace Up Wool Sweater in a Midnight Blue colour from TETRA, and a pair of Niomei Shorts that you can grab at the SAKIDE booth in the Depraved Nation Thrift Shop, with some awesome Nordic Boots from REIGN because you really don't want to be barefoot in this bunker!
Don't look at me though, I'm trying hard not to cry as I skinned my knees falling down the ladder... Don't look at me!!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Cerys in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Tattoo: [White Widow] - Chocolat in Black
Top: TETRA - Lace-up Wool Sweater in Midnight

Romantic Paris

I'm feeling a little bit soppy this morning, as I woke up thinking about relationships... Many people come to SL seeking love and end up getting burnt! Heck I've been there too, falling for people that won't be reciprocating my feelings and realising too late that the things I loved about my craziness have changed... I spent a lot of time and took a lot of chances when it came to finding a SLove, but when I finally stopped looking, love in a HellBone shape appeared...
Now OK I am rambling BUT it's all because I took a very romantic walk through Paris alone - Hell doesn't do romance anymore LOL - and it just stirred things up, making me feel all soppy, sentimental and romantic...
Paris Je T'aime is a home location for a number of great stores, but the location on it's own is really worth wandering around in. It's very pretty and really captures the romance of Paris...
Now I may get into trouble for this, and I am a bit of a bad blogger but I am late with blogging this amazing dress. To be fair I had the picture ready to edit but only yesterday did I have a chance to get any editing done! This is one of those very gorgeous dresses that I needed somewhere special to wear... I chose Paris... It's a Petite Mort Cabaret Velvet Dress in a Rose colour - don't gasp in shock, I know I don't wear pink often - and there are 5 different colour options to choose from. These gorgeous dresses were available until yesterday - hence why I may be in trouble - as an event release for the Lovecraft Festival, which has now closed and I am hoping these dresses are moved to the main store!
I kept everything else simple with this look - hair and shoes were both very understated - the only exception being this gorgeous Posy of Southern Magnolias in a pretty Sorbet colour from, in my personal opinion, the best flower makers in SL - LODE!
Perhaps her bouquet was a romantic gesture from some secretive stranger as she wandered home through the streets of Paris... A beautiful dress and a beautiful bouquet, all adds to the romance of the scenery...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Velma in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Tattoo: [White Widow] - Chocolat in Black
Dress: Petite Mort - Cabaret Velvet Dress in Rose
Flowers: LODE - Southern Magnolia Hand Accessory in Sorbet (Available until August 24th at Chapter Four)
Shoes: Bens Boutique - Odette High Heels in Burgundy
Pose: Image Essentials - Sheer Class 4

Wannabe Fangirl Superhero

Something a little bit random, a little bit crazy and well, rather colourful is on the agenda today... It's FRIDAY and the start of what looks to be a good weekend, so I feel like I should get into the party mood!
You're lucky you can't hear my tone as I write this because it's dripping with sarcasm - especially as I say "WOOT PARTY!" Weekends for me are much of a muchness - working in my SL job, organising the Gators and if I'm very lucky getting some time just for me in which I can exercise my creativity demons by taking pictures... If I can find the right inspiration of course?!
Today's inspiration comes a little bit from the new "Suicide Squad" Movie... So many people out there are dressing like Harley Quinn however, so I decided to pull together a look I'm calling  "ComicBook Girl"!
Yes, Yes, I know I edited this picture a LITTLE harder than I may have needed to but I do really like the over saturation... Comic Books have that look to them after all right?! Fan girl by day, wannabe superhero at night LOL!
She's wearing what I lovingly call my PJs... Not that they were made for that purpose but they just look like a cute pair of Pjs when worn together LOL... The top - and pants though you cannot see them well, but trust me, are freaking awesome - are the creations of Addams. The top is a Tina Mini T-Shirt in a Superhero print, for those of you that are wondering...
From there I started to accessories the wannabe superhero look... A wig to disguise my identity, yes it's blonde with not just blue but PINK dip-dye tones, from elikatira, and then to disguise myself even more a pair of HUGE Kitty Meow Glasses from [Fetch].  There was just one little thing needed - a super cute necklace, and I knew the perfect one... This adorable Choker Bell from {Psycho.Byts}, matches so perfectly with my kitty glasses!
Just time for a quick selfie - since I look so cute - and it's Wannabe Fangirl Superhero AWAY!!

What is she wearing;
Hair: elikatira - Lena in Exclusives
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Glasses: [Fetch] - Kitty Meow Glasses (Available until August 21st at Manga Fair 2016)
Lipstick: [GA.EG] - O-LP07 Lipheart

SL Drama Police

Drama is one of those naturally occurring things in SecondLife... Anywhere you get groups of people you are more than likely to experience drama every now and then, unless of course you live in a box and never venture into the outside world. Perhaps someone should create a SecondLife drama police?! Someone that could stop all of the petty drama and bring justice lol - although OK let's keep the SL Secrets Blog because sometimes that place is just too funny!
The SecondLife World NEEDS the Drama Police!!!
Not sure if I could handle being in the drama police, I'm WAY too sensitive and take everything to heart, but if there were such a group this look should SO be their uniform! Not sure how it would look on guys but hey I cant come up with all of the ideas can I?!
The uniform is made up of two different parts, the shorts being a Marisa Double Lace Short from Addams and the jacket - complete with undergarment and all the trimmings - is a Criminal Police Jacket from Zenith!
Now that I have the uniform, let me go on my first patrol... Today, I will be wandering around the awesome location that is Ironwood Hills... but please, keep your drama to yourself!

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Cerys in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: Zenith - Criminal Police Jacket in Blue 
Tattoos: [White Widow] - Nerve in Black 
Shorts: Addams - Marisa Doble Lace Short in Pure Black 
Pose: Signature Pose - It hurts, Pose Set 19

A Girl's Gotta Work!

Back to work... For RL me it's back to the office, for Rudh there is a whole different job out there calling to her LOL... Something she has to get dressed up all pretty for to catch the eyes of the public! Sometimes new things, but sometimes old things are the choice of Rudh when she's working this job.
Today's look is a mixture of old and new, but thats the way that I love to style myself... Mixing things up so that when she's out in her photography job no two days are the same!  
I hope you realised I was talking about photography LOL, she hasn't got a job as a hooker yet...
The main reason for this look just happens to be the shorts and the boots but it was just too perfect of a scenario in these items and her standing on a street corner to waste the opportunity.
The shorts are a brand new release from WONDERLOST - and YES they are shorts, very revealing shorts! - they are perfect staple pieces for any slightly naughty girl's wardrobe, and even when you wear them with panties they look fairly revealing, so the sweet and innocent should beware hehe... They look even better when you pair them with a pair of the Reign Mishi Thigh High Boots - which are on SALE at the moment I think... They were when I bought them as Reign was having a 50% off sale!
If you're lucky you might find other lovely ladies in the Vila Mimosa Red Light District... You won't see me there I'm done posing in the wrong location lol but this urban grunge place is great!

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - May in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Top: WONDERLOST - Lina Tied Tank in Troublemaker
Tattoo: [White Widow] - Chocolat in Black
Shorts: WONDERLOST - Addie Shorts in Red (Available until September 4th at The Black Dot Project)
Boots: REIGN - Mishi Thigh High Boots in GRAY
Pose: Signature Pose - Such Savage Kicks, Pose Set 20

Someone take my Brain

Pft what a weekend that was, you know I'm actually glad today is Monday and I am back to work - not that I am happy about being in the office - it brings normality and that right now is MUCH needed! The weekend has been a crazy whirlwind of conversations that have taken me on a bit of a rollercoaster ride, and I just really hope that things will smooth themselves out soon...
If that doesn't work then perhaps I will have a lobotomy... Ya know, get my brain removed so I don't need to think anymore?! I could have it put in formaldehyde and preserved until the stress and tension was over?! In fact it might be the best use of my brain right now, I'm not sure I really want it anymore now I learnt a few things that bug me...
I've always been an over thinker... It's one of my worst traits, but not only do I over think I over think, I tend to think of the worst possible outcome and dwell on it... It's not something I'm proud of and it's something that I let myself get hurt by time and time again but it's hard to train the brain to think otherwise.
So on the whole theme of a lobotomy - which is sounding better by the second - I HAD just been to the BodyFy Event and picked up these awesome new "Killer Injury" Face Wounds from PaperDolls, one of which just happens to be a Lobotomy Wound.
The perfect location - or should that be destination for a lobotomy of this kind - is the Ironwood Hills Asylum... It caters for all kinds of people and has plenty of soft warm rooms to make rehabilition an easy task - if you don't mind the screams of other patients of course!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Blues - Heather in Colours 2
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Wound: PaperDolls - Killer Injury (Available until June 24th at BodyFy)
Collar: Kibitz - Collar Collection Gacha Item in Elsa Collar (7) (Available until August 15th at The Epiphany
Tattoos: [White Widow] - Nerve in Black 
Bra: Pixicat - Siren Set in nr2 Red 
Top: Chemical Princess - Heler Shirt (Available until August 31st at AnyBody
Pants: 1 Bad Pixel - Skinny Leathers in Black (No Longer Available!)
Pose: Image Essentials - Glasses 1 (Available until August 28th at Depraved Nation Thrift Store)

Petite Mort Vacation Gear!

Last New Years, HellBone and I rented a little cottage in the woods to try and take our doggie away from the crazy fireworks that people in our town like to set off for the 5 days surrounding the festive celebrations... It was great, if you don't factor in the fact that I almost killed my mother-in-law... This year we've decided to do the same again, deeper into the Dutch forest and this year I plan on taking some heavy duty rope so that if my mother-in-law pulls the same crap again she will be tied to a tree and conveniently "forgotten" on the day we come home lol... 
I'm talking about this for two reasons, one I just paid the deposit and two I am REALLY in need of a bit of a break. I want to go back to England to just switch off my head but right now that isn't happening so a girl has to just dream right?! 
Luckily in Second Life I can actually reach my holiday goals without having to spend any money and arrange any time off... I just click the Teleport button and land there... One of the prettiest places to holiday is Netherwood - a location based on the Yorkshire Dales of England. 
While I was there on this trip I wore such a cute hippy style outfit and laced flowers into my hair, it felt almost as if I was actually having some free time.
The hair - complete with it's flower decoration - is one that has been released by Adoness for the latest round of Genre, that ends tomorrow. It seemed to look rather cute with the latest outfit released from Petite Mort at The Crossroads. The release includes three awesome mix-and-match pieces, including this awesome Gypsy Witch Tank, adorable Gypsy Bag and the Buttonfly Denim Shorts which will no doubt become a staple item in my SL wardrobe! These things all come in multiple colour options and so although I mentioned it before they make mix-and-match looks effortless!!! 
Though I had a though while I was writing this... Have you seen that show Dharma and Greg?! Do I look a bit like a red-headed Dharma?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: adoness - Thalassa ALOHA in Scarlet (Available until August 12th at Genre
Skin: Glam Affair - Melanie in Asia 05
Necklace: Moon Elixir - Branch Necklace
