Piggies for Relaxing

Last night I had the time of my life... I was out in RL at a concert... Live Music is definitely one of my biggest healers and I feel so much better for having a chance to have enjoyed some last night! For those of you that are interested it was my favourites, Five Finger Death Punch, I fought my way close to the front and had an amazing time, but today WOW, today I'm paying for it... I can barely talk and walking... Forget about it LOL... 
So today, even in SL, I feel like taking it very very easy... Nothing too crazy, just a day in my jammies to chillax!
I have the perfect spot in my little home that was just crying out for me to go curl up in with a good book. The book in this case just happens to be about Haunted Houseplants LOL... Though it is the chair that needed to curled up in, and funnily enough Cauldrons are actually a lot more comfortable than they look! This Cauldron Chair, comes pre-comfortised - with snuggly cushions and blankets - from Candle & Cauldron, and there are lots of different textures for the cushions and blankets, to make sure that it fits well in any discerning witches home. 
Just while I'm thinking about it though, I DEFINITELY need to give more than a little mention to my awesome Jammies... The top is an older cropped sweater I bought ages ago from Vinyl, but it's the Pants I want you to really really look at! These are some of the new Novelty Flannel Jammies from Petite Mort for The Frozen Fair, and OH MY GOSH it was so hard to choose which one's I wanted to wear! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Makena (Past Group Gift)
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: Vinyl - Daya Cropped Sweater 
Pants: Petite Mort - Novelty Flannel Jammies in Piggies (Available until December 28th at The Frozen Fair
Chair: Candle & Cauldron - Cauldron Chair

A BVN Secret Santa Gift for Lanna Greenhoo

As someone who tries to be a part of the active SL Blogger community, I've always enjoyed being within the many blogger groups that allow members to work together, sharing ideas and tricks, and although I'm not someone well known or widely followed, blogging for me is a passion, a release and a chance to clear my head at times. Even on the worst day, I can sit down and write some random ramblings and allow my brain a chance to mellow out, and that for me is important. 
So this year I saw that the Blogger & Vlogger Network of SL, were hosting a Secret Santa, of sorts, I knew I had to apply... I waited patiently to see who would be my Santa, and more importantly who I would get in return so that as a gift I could find a way to give them a little promotion, and perhaps a bit of a smile too... 
Today, I am able to share with you the details of my Santa Giftee... Today, this post is for you, Lanna Greenhoo... 
How to start though... I guess, by doing what anyone would... Time for a little look at Lanna and her blog... 
Lanna's blog - It's Me Lanna - is so professional that it's something definitely fit for the fashion world. Unlike my messy ramblings and journal style, Lanna has everything clear, concise and well organised. It's no wonder that she has a great collection of sponsors and event coverage under her fashionable belt. Each of her posts includes a list with URLs for locations to get things, and what's really awesome about these lists is that they clearly show who  made each item, as well as names and locations of events where they are available. 
Yet I think that my favourite thing about Lanna's blog, has to be her pictures - which makes sense since they are the most important part of any blog to draw the eye and catch the attention. Her pictures that seem to be where we have a few things in common... 
Lanna - like myself - seems to be fairly eclectic in her style with pictures ranging from girlie prettiness to magically dark with everything in between for good measure. She has a varied taste it seems, and it is clear that she loves to play around with her looks, so that the end result of each picture is a beautiful little work of art. 
I know it's a little cheeky, and I hope she won't be mad at me but I compiled a few of her creations into a little collage just to give everyone out there a taste of Lanna's creativity... 
Though I thoroughly recommend taking some time to look at both her blog - It's Me Lanna - and her Flickr Stream - Lanna Greenhoo - to see for yourself. The pictures are MUCH MUCH MUCH better on a bigger screen than they appear in these little boxes, meant for intrigue! 

To Lanna, I just want to reach out and say, thank you for taking the time to create all these wonderful images. I was following you already on Flickr but I will be watching for more beautiful things from you going forward! Keep up the awesome work and don't ever stop believing in the magic, because you lady, make magic!! I hope, even if it's just for a moment, I was able to give you a smile, and I want to wish you a very Happy Holidays! Love and Hugs, from your BVN Secret Santa, Rudh xxx

Tribal Warrior Princesses Pet

OK Christmas overload, I need to step back for a minute and do something totally different. Unlike Halloween I find that sometimes Christmas gets to be a little too much for me, so as much as this year feels like a much more special year than some in the past have, I find myself suffering with an overload. 
SO on December 4th, we had a special party at the Gators... One of our members Max - or more affectionately as he's know MaxiPad - celebrated his birthday. We threw him a themed party, that was a little tribal in style, since he lives in Arizona and well, it's a desert and he teases us Brits for being pasty!!! 
This ultimately gave me another perfect excuse to play dress up... This time, I was a warrior princess!!! 
Princess status well because I wanted it LOL... Move over Moana!! There's a new Tribal Princess in town!! 
Her Skull headdress - that is part of the Truth Arwen Hair - and Paradise Collar Necklace - from Remarkable Oblivion - show her rank, while her staff and leg weapon give credence to her warrior status, but it is her Peacock companion that marks her out as special - thanks to Jian's beautiful pets! Peacocks are often regarded as birds of Royalty, they are seen as signs of guidance, protection and spirituality, and well... They are also just gorgeous to look at too!! 
She waits in the shadows at the Mysts of Eyr, watching, soon her people will attack... Soon... 

What is she wearing;
Head Accessory & Hair: Truth - Arwen in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Face & Body Tattoo: Nightmare - Draconian Scales

Love Potion #9

There are periods of the year that are supposed to be the most magical if you look at any cultural history. Christmas is now very much tired up with the Pagan holiday of the Mid-Winter and in fact, if you look at many of our modern Christmas traditions, you will realise that they came from Pagan festivities. It is definitely a time of magic however, and that magic may be used for less than good... 
In a dark little shop in the Ironwood Hills, a little witch hides away brewing a Love Potion after being jilted just before the Christmas festivities began... 
Her Sad Tears - thanks to an applier from Nightmare which can be seen more clearly in the attached close ups I've included below and which is the new release from Nightmare at the main store - are adding to the Love Potion #9 - a pose from elephante poses - that she found in one of her Grandmother's old books... 
She was dressed for a party in a Sugarplum Oubliette dress of soft lilac lace, purchased very recently at the Winter's Hollow, and had even remembered her special Dae Glasses, to make her eyes sparkle thanks to the Zombie Suicide, but it seems like this pretty outfit will never make it to the party... 
Unless Grandma's spell works?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Ginevra (Group Gift) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Tears: Nightmare - Sad Tears Set 
Glasses: Zombie Suicide - Dae Glasses (Available until December 31st at The Darkness
Necklace: {PSYCHO:Byts} - Bell Choker 
Dress: Oubliette - Sugarplum Dress in Lilac (Available until December 28th at Winter's Hollow
Pose & Prop: elephante poses - Love Potion #9

North Pole Mugshot!

One last one to show a nod in the direction of someone who hurt me and mine recently... Santa she threw the first stone, and I may have gotten caught ready to throw one, but as soon as his back is turned, this stone filled snow ball will be hurled at someone's face, without the warning of "think fast!" I'm lined up and ready... I'm already on the naughty list lol, what have I got to lose... 
So standing at the grotto, for a mugshot was not really on my to-do list, especially this close to Christmas when I'm trying so hard to make it over to the nice list, but sometimes people give you a damn good reason... They know who I'm talking about, they are the target for my next stone filled snowball LOL... Not mentioning names, that would get me into even more trouble with Santa!! 
Though all of this picture came about because {NANTRA} made this awesome gacha collection filled with Christmas Criminals Poses... You can get into trouble for all kinds of things this year... Spiking the milk for Santa, Carolling off key, and even Being a Ho Ho Ho - luckily I wasn't caught for that one LOL... Yet sometimes a girl can't help but throw snowballs full of stones!! Each pose is Bento animated, and contains the backdrop, and sign, as well as some others having extra props, and you can join in the Christmas Criminal Festivities thanks to Nantra at this round of The Liaison Collaborative
To the background I added some of these amazing looking natural style trees. They are Yule Trees from Candle & Cauldron. These trees come in a few different colours, but each are decorated with ribbons, crystals and fruits and I LOVE the fact that they feel so natural... Much more of a traditional Christmas tree rather than the overly tinsel stuffed kind. 
Now just to wait till Santa's back is turned?!

Hair Wreath: [Atomic] - Christmas Crown in Color Lights 
Hat & Hair: NO.MATCH - NO.JUSTICE in Reds 15 (Available until December 31st at The Imaginarium

Kookie Red Shoes

Unlike the run up to Halloween, I find myself having a bit of a Christmas overkill at the moment. Don't get me wrong I LOVE Christmas, but it's every where and it's coming VERY VERY fast, and I guess well I'm much more of a Halloween person than a Christmas one... So I find myself needing to stop thinking about Christmas for a while, so that I can focus on other things... 
Today is one of those days, the Gators MC are setting up for their Winter Christmas formal this weekend, so everything there is Christmas all the time, but right now I NEED to do something weird and kookie for my own mental health lol... 
I bought a pair of shoes, something in the style that I'd never normally even look at, and in a colour I down own a lot of shoes in, and my first thought was "why did I do that?" Then I looked at them a little more closely, an d soon the outfit just fell into place. It was nothing new besides the NX-Nardcotix shoes, just a cute dress from LiViD with some polka dot tights from The Secret Store and a hat - and hairstyle - from Truth.  
It was however the location at Mystical Fae Forest in combination with this Fame Monster Pose - from {NANTRA} - that brought this, what could be a called a Look-of-the-Day to life! 

What is she wearing;
Hat & Hair: TRUTH - Asuka in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Lipstick: Red Apple - Mate Red Lipstick 
Outfit: LiViD - Coven Uniform in Thursday 
Tights: The Secret Store - Polka Tights in Black

Santa's Gift for a VERY Good Boy

Right... The fat man is coming in less than a few weeks now - and no I'm not referring to anything kink, although this post seems a little opposite to that idea - and I'm guessing that by now it's a little too late to start being sweet and innocent so that Santa puts me on the right list, BUT I had a brainwave of a picture idea and well... I couldn't get my little camera working fast enough... 
Everyone that's been good deserves to be on Santa's Nice List, and that includes those that have been Nice even when they've been being very Naughty... I got my hands on something that for some reason seemed like the perfect Christmas Decoration for someone that liked to be very naughty, and wouldn't you know... Even a naughty Dom gets a special gift under the Christmas Tree at this time of year! 
My mind goes to interesting places sometimes when I start planning an idea for a photo... Today's post is obviously one of those times... 
I saw this awesome Devi Tree BDSM Play Toy a while ago at Fapple, and while I was wondering what to do with it a crazy idea popped into my head. Why not decorate it with the gorgeous new baubles that you can hunt for at Apple Fall and make it into the perfect Christmas Tree for any Nice List Dom! It was perfect, and Santa even left a nicely bound and gagged present, wrapped in ribbon - thanks to Violetility and Caverna Obscura - hanging from it's branches... Someone's been a very good boy this year it seems... 
Though judging by her bruises, and that slightly sticky looking candy cane on the floor, it seems like someone else had some fun before he popped back up the chimney too... Must have gotten a little rough, there's a broken bauble on the floor down there!! 
All I can hope now though is that this has gotten me on the Nice List, I mean I held still and was a good girl wasn't I?!

Suffer in Silence

YAY Ranty Post Time!!!! It's been a while since my Rambles have been on the ranty side but sometimes after bottling it up a while I want to find a safe place to release it without blowing it up on someone in my friendship group and drowning in unnecessary drama! So fair warning people if you're not wanting to read the rant, look at the pretty picture and then skip to the end for the credits, and I promise this will not happen too often!! 
First the picture, which in itself paints a thousand words... 
Now for the ranty part... You have been warned...
Communication and Feelings are two VERY dangerous tools in the human mind... They are sometimes misleading and can cause all kinds of different emotional troubles in a person, and these can be fairly volatile in their appearance. SL seems to be a place though where communication is often the biggest cause of bad feeling within anyone it seems. In RL, communication is key any relationship, but with SL things have to be communicated in a totally different way. In SL, there are no real facial expressions and no eyes to read, there can only be words of another person that you hear or see... Sometimes intonation can help with understanding, but unfortunately this isn't always the way it works...
People in SL have a nasty habit of hiding in the anonymity of their avatars - not all granted but many people seem to have a reason not to reveal their true feelings. I myself can be called guilty of this. I bottle everything away, and still often have a massive lack of confidence when it comes to standing up for myself.
In the past few months, things have slowly been unravelling for me and my SL "family". I have to say I've hidden, I haven't been able to express myself about things, but today right here I'm going to say what I need to say... In SL we CHOOSE to be a part of a group that has a family feel to it, it's not something anyone can force on you. I understand sometimes that people may feel a need to move on and try something new, but what upsets me is when people make that choice to move on and simply seem to forget those that they left behind. Not taking the time to say goodbye, not taking the time to come to you later on and say hello, and waiting until you make the first move when it was them that walked away in the first place...
For now I remain "Lovesick" and wear a Mouth Silencer, these people know who I am talking about, they know where to find me, and I hope that they find the time to come say hello, or I will have to find the time to let myself realise that they weren't close enough if I'm going to have to chase them, and maybe I can let them go... Find the feelings of strength and once again, hide the feelings of hurt...

What is she wearing;
Headband: flipmode - Liberty Headband (No Longer Available!)
Hair: RunAway - Rachel Hair in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Eyes: Izzie's - Lua Teary Eyes RARE

Eve of Eden

I'm not a religious person, but I do believe in Karma... No matter what happens to a person there always seems to be something that will come back to haunt a person. 
I'm writing slowly on a rant post to come out in a few days when I have managed to get my brain into action after a very hectic, drama filled few days, but right now all I can think about is that Karma will come back to get people... 
Though today while I'm thinking of religiousness, Christmas is coming and OK that's a combination of both Pagan and Christian religious holidays, so for today I took a trip into something evil that makes me smile... 
A story about woman being seduced by evil... Sounds about right for me, but to be honest, there's nothing Biblical to do with it! 
Even though it looks a little like that thanks to this amazing outfit from CUREMORE, I got this a while ago at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, which is running until December 6th, but there has been a few leaves added for modesty sake! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Apple in Redheads 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2

Sinner

Sometimes in my daily life, I find myself thinking "why do people act like that?" 
It can come from a wide variety of places, not only limited to the Second Life world, but in all walks of life. For me, I've been working in Second Life for a real life School Institute for a while, these new people to Second Life are often requiring me to have the patience of a saint... I have to bend over backwards to help them use the most basic of Second Life tools, and although many of these people are very thankful for my experience, I can guarantee that there will always be a few that make me want to release my inner badside and wreck some havoc. 
I cant do that at work, for obvious reasons, but when on Rudh... well that's a totally different story...
The only problem is that when I'm on Rudh, the havoc and chaos tends to be of the kinky variety the vast majority of the time... I'm a little devil ready to cause trouble...
I found the perfect place to do JUST that... If you want to be kinky and sin, and well... Release... You should try CAT KINKY... It's nothing to do with cats, and all to do with Sin!
As you can see the 'devil in I' - yes I'm currently listening to the Slipknot song for a little stress relief - has already been enjoying herself.
Dressed for pleasure, in a gorgeous little Gia Asymmetic Dress from Asteria and some very cute devil horns thanks to her Doe Hair, she's ready for Sin... Just don't mess up her lipstick... 
This lipstick is my new favourite fun make-up, it's a release from Zombie Suicide called Cheetah Lips and it's available until December 10th at Applique. It was so hard to choose the colour that I wanted to wear, take a look and see... 

What is she wearing;
Hair & Accessory: Doe - Angelic in Gingers
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Eye Make-Up: Izzie's - Gloom Eyeshadows
Eye Bruise: Izzie's - Bruised Eyes

Christmas Baubles make EXCELLENT Earrings!

December 1st is finally here and that means one thing... It's a slippery slope down hill until Christmas. Here in Holland there is still the Dutch holiday that is Sinterklaas, which takes place next week, but for now the clock starts ticking until the fat man comes - or more importantly till I get to go home for my first Christmas with my family in years! I'm so excited!! 
For now though it's time to start Christmassing it up just a little, time to start doing a little decorating, and what better to do than visit the crazy lady who sells fresh cut pines as Christmas Trees... 
Yes, while everyone is going December 1st shopping crazy with the Arcade having started this morning - I'm already Yardsale shopping too - but 'Tis the Season, which is also the name of the location I'm in taking pictures today, and a girl needs to get her stuff!
While selling Christmas Trees - and obviously dressing to look the part, she's being a bit of a Brat - thanks to a pose released by Image Essentials - and looking something like the Christmas trees she's selling herself! 
One of the main reasons for her little bit of Christmas craziness, is the fact that she was sent some awesome decorations from Lost Junction that are just perfect for the Christmas tree... Thanks to a helpful reminder from my MC Brother Maxwell, I remembered a time when my sister and I were younger that we used to help our mum with decorating the Christmas tree... We used to wear the baubles as earrings, and so that is EXACTLY what Rudh decided to do. 
The Nested Tree Ornaments are available from Lost Junction at this year's Tannenbaum - a place I still need to visit as I was waiting until December started before doing anything too Christmassy - and danced around herself... 

What is she wearing;
Hair Wreath: [Atomic] - Christmas Crown in Color Lights 
Hair & Lights: Doe - Little Lights in Solid 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Snow Face: Izzie's - Face Snow 
Earrings: Lost Junction - Nested Tree Ornaments (Available until December 25th at Tannenbaum
Dress: [I<3F] - Dress [17] 
Pose: Image Essentials - Brat 1

Apocalypse Attire

I've been pretty and pink for a while now and I think it's starting to wear me down just a little... It's really not something that I am used to, so today I'm going to add a touch of darkness by going hunting in my own little Post-Apocalypse world...
Days, Weeks, Months have passed and poor little Rudh, has no idea how long she's been wandering this deserted landscape, if it wasn't for the companionship of her trusty Zombie hunting cats, she may no longer be able to survive. Armed to the teeth, and dressed for protection, she's ready to face the world... 
Wandering around outside Tralala's Diner looking for something for dinner, the mini tribe of Rudh and her cats hunt... 
Her outfit too has been scavenged from various things she's found - put together by Tentacio and PSYCHO.Byts for a Hopeless Future from the Remnant of the dark days...

Early on Winter Mornings

Maybe it's just me, but one of the hardest things I find about these cold Winter months is waking up in the morning. I LOVE when it's colder, I'm not a fan of being too hot, but when it's dark in the early morning and I have to get out of bed, the hardest part of everything seems to be waking up. When you open your eyes and realise that it's actually darker with them open than closed. No wonder people get so into the Christmas spirit, as a little warm Christmas light always makes the dark days feel brighter! 
Yet we carry on, waking up slowly, and making a mad dash through the cold house to switch the heating on before diving back under the duvet with a cup of coffee... At least that's what I do most mornings!
In SL you never feel the temperature, and Rudh has been known to head out in shorts even into the snow, but for some reason, even poor little Rudh finds it so hard to wake up in the Winter mornings... Or maybe that's just because her driver is so sleepy! 
Image Essentials made the perfect pose for just that feeling, it's available as part of the Daily Things pose set - which is available until November 30th at Designer Circle for those of you that want to know... Getting out of her warm tub bed, leaving the cat to sleep a little longer, she stretches and makes the mad dash to her kitchen in search of coffee LOL... 
Luckily for you though, she looks MUCH more adorable in her Reign Onesie Pjs than I do in RL, not a hair out of place and her face not looking at all tired... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Brighton (Available with Brighton Hoodie) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2

Pose: Image Essentials - Daily Things Pose 3 (Available until November 30th at Designer Circle

Cake, Donuts & Ice-Cream

Sticking with the rather girlie side of myself today... I'm actually enjoying letting her out to play but it's not something that tends to last very long LOL. Pink Overload happens to me pretty quickly, and it's a colour, like purple, that I really tend to avoid! Yet this time, just this once I couldn't help myself... I had to get a little pink... All because of the icing!!!
I LOVE all things food related in SL, I have a large collection of yummy deliciousness and when it comes to candies and sweet things in SL - as in RL - I'm a bit of a sucker for it.
So when one of my store crushes - Violetility - released this awesome Cake Couch and Pouf combination for the Candy Fair this year, and not only are there Confetti, Chocolate and Strawberry sets there's also a Blue Alice themed set.
I couldn't find the right way to display it and actually got lucky when I stumbled on the fact that you can rez at Whole Wheat when you're in the group!! So I did, I went a little crazy, choosing a photo booth that worked for what I wanted, and rezzing first the furniture, then a decorative Cupcake Chandelier - from The Looking Glass - and a few more cakey things... 
Next it was time to get myself dressed, I had this awesome bodysuit from Cubic Cherry which perfectly fit the cake feel, and added some ice cream - because they go so well together, cake and ice cream - in the form of these amazing shoes from Ingenue - both of which are available at Candy Fair - with a few Half-Deer accessories, and voilá I looked like I'd fit in well at Willy Wonka's Candy Factory!

Frozen Crystal Queen

SL seems to have fast moved through the Autumn colours and is already abundant with snowy scenes, Christmas is well and truly on it's way to domination in SL. Christmas is abound, with sales events and themed releases springing up all over the grid... IT'S NOVEMBER PEOPLE!!! 
Still I can't help letting the magic take over just a little, I want to let the magical pretty fantasy feeling wash over me, and I guess, what better way to start than with a little sparkle! 
It could be the sparkle in the air that this time of year seems to have, which drew me to these amazing crystals and throne at Whimsical - they are SO Whimsical and so devine, I was powerless to resist... Made by the amazing {LORE} store, the throne is available with adult and PG versions, and the Crystals are available in light and dark versions with 2 different styles up for grabs... 
It made me create an Ice Queen feel in my story telling mind... A princess abandoned in a the snowy caverns, deep underground... Twisted perhaps into someone that ruled with an icy glare and a chilling beauty. Her cavernous grotto lit with tiny crystal lamps - which are actually the Moroccan Lamps from The Looking Glass - glinting their warm light off the dangerous looking icicles that adorn her Winter Crown - available from The Half Moon Market at Whimsical!
Bring on the snow!

Photograph of a Photographer

I LOVE TAKING PICTURES... I love blogging too...
I've tried many things while I've been in SL, and still partake in a few of them but for me Blogging and Photography is where my heart is. I KNOW I'm not the best at either of these things, and there are many people out there who may look at my attempts and laugh, but I try my best - even though my computer seems to have a vendetta against me and won't work the way I want it to - and each of my pictures and posts is full of love and enjoyment, something that I hope shines through, no matter the subject. 

I love finding new places and poses and outfits that come together to make something pretty, and today is one awesome combination of these things - I just wish my graphics card would let me play with shadows! 
This picture was taken as Rudh was posing to take a picture of the Steam Train at Storybrooke's new Winter look. It's so unbelievably gorgeous and like something straight out of Narnia that I couldn't resist taking a picture of her while she was taking pictures - thanks to the pose I bought in the sale at Reve Obscura called Shutterbug. 
Her outfit is a newish release from Petite Mort at this year's Sad November. The Top and Jeans are available in a collection of different colours, and the Tied Plaid Shirt comes with a hud for easy colour change, but as per usual it makes this awesome Autumnal outfit from Petite Mort so versatile. It's great mix'n'match pieces that this store is very good at, and they work as a full outfit or worn separately too!!
This is what I really look like, maybe less glamorous than this, when I am taking pictures of Rudh LOL... There's a lot to come and some real fantasy pouring out of my crazy mind, I cannot wait to share with you!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Makena (Group Gift) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Sweater: Petite Mort - Cropped T-Neck in Moss (Available until December 2nd at Sad November
Tied Sweater: Petite Mort - Tied Plaid Shirt (Available until December 2nd at Sad November)
Pants: Petite Mort - Highwaist Skinny's in Stonewash (Available until December 2nd at Sad November
Boots: Alyce - Ugg Boots 
Pose: Reve Obscura - Shutterbug BENTO Pose

Warming my Tootsies

When I'm blogging there are usually two ways I look at things... Things that I have been sent by the designers I work for take priority, but sometimes I see myself in an outfit that I NEED to share because I really love it as an outfit. I guess these are when I work on something that is my own version of a look-of-the-day type post. I'm not good at straight up fashion photography, all my pictures need to tell a story for me to be able to enjoy them, and sometimes those look-of-the-day things are brought to life by the discovery of the perfect setting... 
Today's post is one of those things... 
I was looking through a collection of amazing location pictures on Flickr and stumbled across a location called I [SL] Amsterdam. It's BRILLIANT! A small location, granted, but it feels so like the Amsterdam that I live in, it's just like taking Rudh out into the City around my home. It's one of those places that it's creator - Inkie Loudwater - seems to have put a lot of thought and effort into making feel alive, and I cannot wait to see how things change with the seasons in this gorgeous place. No doubt I will find myself back here at certain points too!
This outfit though is one that I am LOVING... It's a simple outfit and yes in the snow it's funny to see Rudh in shorts and a T-Shirt, but that's the beauty of SL, you don't get cold LOL... The Top is from Pseudo at the current round of Kustom9 called "Knot the one". While I was at Kustom9, I had to try my luck for a pair of The Winter Boots from Juju, and luckily got a pair of gray leg warmers, that looked like I'd been able to pull my cold feet from these lovely shiny red boots and warm my toes by the fire... 
It was a perfect location to sit and warm my feet... Now all I need is a warm cup of Chocomel! 

What is she wearing;
Hat & Hair: Doe - Ruby in VI Gingers (Available until November 30th at The Gacha Garden
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: Pseudo - Knot the one Tee in Titt (Available until December 10th at Kustom9
Shorts: villena - Split Denim Shorts in Gray 
Socks: [Juju] - The Winter Leg Warmers in Grey (Available until December 10th at Kustom9

Autumn Evenings

Flickr has now changed it's rules, I'm sure you may well have heard... No more than 30 groups for a non-Premium account to stop spam! Every day it seems like there is less and less reason to want to share my pictures that way, and I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking that way. I'm still having trouble in getting my safety levels altered - although I've done everything I can to have my safety level changed... Yet they come out with new rulings like this... Can't they fix what's broken first?! 
Still, I have things to share, and Flickr is the main platform for that still, so a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do... 
I fell in love with an outfit that I bought recently and went exploring to find somewhere pretty to take some pictures of myself wearing it... It's not something I'd usually wear, it's a little bit too girlie for my usual taste but when I tried it on at Collabor88 this month I NEEDED this outfit...
It's the Mock Turtle Neck Top and Pleated Skirt from Tres Blah at Collabor88 - available at the event until December 6th. I love black and white stripes - although the top comes in a range of colours not just stripy - but what surprised me most is that I chose to buy a red skirt. I don't normally buy red because of my hair colour, but it looks SO CUTE!!!
Now to juggle and see which groups I want to post it in... 

What is she wearing;
Hair & Scarf: Wasabi Pills - January Mesh Hair in Reds (Available until November 23rd at Uber)
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Top: Tres Blah - Mock Neck Top in Stripes (Available until December 6th at Collabor88)
Skirt: Tres Blah - Pleated Skirt in Burgundy (Available until December 6th at Collabor88)
Pose: {what next} - 'Let It Rain' Pose Set in Pose 5

Cleaning up the House

After the naughtiness of yesterday, it's time to tone it down a little... My inner bad girl has been subdued and is now back in her box, but it's definitely given me a little more of a spring in my step today hehe. 
Now I know Spring cleaning happens in the Spring, why else would it be Spring Cleaning?! Though Autumn is also a great time for cleaning up to prepare for the long Winter months... 
Rudh has just started moving into a new house in SL too... The Hobbit house was awesome but a little too big for her needs, so once the Halloween maze was gone, Rudh was able to focus on housing!!! This new house is perfect, I'm sure you'll see it once everything is ready... For now, decorating and cleaning go hand in hand... 
Ama has again proved very helpful when it comes to poses - though admittedly this one is a little more PG than the last one I used in yesterday's post - with this Clean Up pose, that comes as one of 4 from a set of different poses at 1940's Rewind
She also - while cleaning up some of her things to put out in the house - found an awesomely useful apron, that is just perfect for all kinds of different household chores from Tres Blah! It looks great with the Miss Chelsea Jeans. 
Not long though, she's just doing some final cleaning and soon she'll be ready to show off her new house!!! It's looking SO CUTE!!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Makena (Group Gift) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top & Apron: Tres Blah - Summer Fete Apron in Black 
Pants: miss chelsea - Judi Jeans in Faded 
Pose & Prop: Ama - Clean Up Pose Set (Available until November 28th at Rewind

ROMP brings out the Naughties!

Since a long time now I've been focusing on character looks during the Halloween month, and then lots of pretties for Autumn too, but there is a side of me that is busting to get out... Sometimes she's allowed, others not, but I guess in light of the fact that one of SL's naughtiest shopping events has opened it's doors this week I might let her out to play on all her new goodies... and yes that's ON not with! 
I'm talking about my inner naughty girl... I always dress like a bit of a... well to put it in the term used by my hubby, a slut... Yet she's not always allowed out in such a public space as my blog LOL... ROMP changes things... Romp gives her a reason to be allowed out in public... Romp brings the bad girl out to play... 
This round of ROMP is as naughty as any other, but for some reason when she was allowed out to play the bad girl in me went at it whole heartedly... REALLY Naughty! 
It started when she opened some of the lovely things that she was sent by the awesome designers that she works for... 
Fapple made the most adorably warm and snuggly pet bed... You can see it in the background of this picture and it's the perfect place for a pet to hibernate away the winter months, while Master is out working... 
Violetility made a brand new chair for her Master to relax in front of the fire - although the Master doesn't really exist and Lilian's MAlt Otis actually got to enjoy a little online time hehe - that's complete with handy shelves for holding all his treats for a good - or bad - little pet... 
Although it was Ama that out did it's self in the making Rudh a naughty girl stakes, because not only did they create this amazing new "Ride It" Sybian, which she got far too excited over and needed a little putting back into her place. They also created these awesome Ruler Mark Tattoo layers, which as you could tell meant that Rudh was put into place with a ruler! 
Eventually though she was allowed to put on a bit of a show, testing her new sybian wearing some very gorgeous but naughty lingerie from Dirty Princess - that's also available at ROMP - which looks better from the front view and even has the option to wear covered, open or half covered bra cups! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: RunAway - Kimberly Hair in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Lingerie: Dirty Princess - The Sex Vixen Princess Lingerie in Navy (Available until November 24th at ROMP
Marks: Ama - Ruler Marks (Available until November 24th at ROMP
Stockings & Shoes: Reign - Classic Jane Heels and Stockings

Bed: Fapple- The little slave bed (Available until November 24th at ROMP
Building: Trompe Loeil - Amelie Cottage (Available until December 6th at Collabor88

Titan of Greek Myth

High in the temples of Mount Olympus, home to the Gods and Goddess of Ancient Greece, if you look really carefully you may spot one of the titans... These beings share god-like powers of the original Gods of Greek mythology but are descendants rather the the original and more well known deities themselves...
These Titans are beautiful but dangerous, ethereal and powerful but in my case - considering how my usual life as Rudh is - possibly fairly dangerous?! For now though, let's just stick with beautiful... 
I know it's not Halloween anymore, but one thing I still love doing is coming up with random characters and their stories... I've been looking into the names of the Titans due to an avatar that I use for my work. I'm happy to say that my work avatar is named for intelligence and intellect, rather than destruction as in another case which makes me laugh out loud... 
Yet once again the outfit I put together took on a life of it's own as I began creating it... 
First of all, I fell in love with this gorgeous dress from Sweet Kajira as soon as I tried it on at We <3 RP, the softness that it has, the gemstone like colours, it was just WOW!! So hard to choose the colour I wanted! I could have had them all hehe... 
Although it wasn't until I was messing around trying things out to create a look, that I found this Greecian Titan coming to life... I had been going through some things I had waiting to blog and remembered these amazing wings from lassitude & ennui - which are the Seed of Inspiration at this month's round of The Gacha Garden. Accessories for this look were kept simple, and the location was a VERY lucky find - check out the Time Portal Roman Time Zone, yes I KNOW it's not Greek but they have a similar architecture kinda! - as was the pose I chose to use LOL... This pose is a NANTRA release, but I'll admit it's missing the props that are intended for use with it! To see this Autumn Waltz pose as it's intended, please imagine leaves, OR check it out at The Liaison Collaborative where it's on sale until November 30th! 
Titan Rudh may look ethereal but she's deadly... Don't believe me, wanna try and see?!

Hair Accessory: ERSCH - Autumn Coronet in Gold (Available until November 30th at We <3 RP
Hair: Truth - Ophelia in Selection
