Let's paint our bodies with some Body Art

Body Art comes in a variety of different forms... Tattoos are a very expressive Body Art form, but then Make-up can be too, and if you're anything like me there is nothing that beats a good scar!! I know that I'm just macabre in that but hey I'm not the only one in SL lol..
However, if you love any kind of Body Art, there is a hunt coming in SL which will be right up your street and then some.
The Body Art Hunt starts tomorrow - July 1st - and runs through the month, allowing those with a passion for body art, the chance to get their hands on some awesome freebies...
Tattoos are dominant of course, but there are also other artistic twists on things like eyes, nails and make-ups, so even if you don't wear tattoos this could be a fun hunt for you!
I've played with a few different things in this photo... I have a lot of lovely things in the wings waiting to be played with, but for now this is what you get...
Starting with the non-event stuff, I have to give another shout out to Magika, who are in the midst of a 50% off sale... I bought this Curious Hair for half price... Isn't it cute?!
Then on to the Body Art, starting from the top and possibly least noticeable... Banana Banshee has created a set of Carnival Eyes, and I'm wearing a spiral version here. Each design comes in dark or light versions, and with a variety of different ways of wearing them too!
Moving down I smeared my lips with a dark red Laquer Lips colour from SongBird. This includes 4 different, but basic colours, AND the snakebite piercing that you can see in the photo too!
Lastly - for this post about the Body Art hunt anyway - the gorgeous chest tattoo from Tenjin called Fancy Flower is a release for the hunt. I don't tend to wear tattoos very often but I couldn't resist the feminine rose with it's long soft looking tendrils...
There will be more body art to come so if you like that kinda thing but for now, I'm done with work, it's time to go home LOL...

Running from the Snow Prison...

Yesterday was all about Summer Heat, but today I will tell you a little secret... I'm already too hot, and am wishing for the coldness of winter hehe... Sounds weird huh, but as a big girl I don't take to heat too well and I tend to end up feeling pretty bleh, so I will say now, it's not that long till Christmas anymore LOL and so there will be cold weather.
The photo that I have chosen to post today is NOTHING about hot weather, and it features a LOT of snow hehe...
This - what could be a princess but I'm not entirely sure - is running away from the Kingdom of Galanthus. Perhaps she is a princess from a far off land, perhaps she was held prisoner in the icy fortress, we will never know but the blue emblem of her kingdom is emblazened across the back of her soft warm Stark Winter Cloak. Her dress, in the Direwolf style that is so popular amongst the nobility of her people, matches the colour of her cloak perfectly, and to top it all off - the reason that we can assume she's a princess and not just a pretty girl - is that the Winterfell Tiara rests in her curly red locks. The pieces of her outfit can be found at The Instruments this month, as releases for the store ImmateriA, and her hair is a wig from Magika - which was purchased in their 50% off storewide sale this week!
The stories for the last two posts are about two very different beauties, but to be honest that's one of my favourite things about SL... I can play dress up and be whoever I want to be... One day I am a Bollywood beauty and the next I'm a snow princess... What will I be tomorrow?!

Hair: Magika - Lessons
Circlet: ImmateriA - Winterfell Circlet (Available Now at The Instruments

It's going to be an Indian Summer

I've just gotten back from my vacation, and it felt like I was a kid in a candy store or it was Christmas morning... There were so many gorgeous things awaiting my attention in my hoard, things I'd logged in just to make sure I didn't miss out on, and things that I had been sent by people I blog for, that I didn't know where to begin... I was pulling outfits together like a crazy person, and I now have so many pretty looks ready and waiting that I am not quite sure where to start when it comes to covering them all!!
All of them are different, all of them are gorgeous... So I have treated it like a lucky dip, the posts are ready to be written and I close my eyes and open one hehe... This happens to be the first of my lucky dip of posts hehe...
This look was inspired by the gorgeous release from Stargazer Creations for this month's round of The Instruments. I love the vibrant colours, and as soon as I saw it I was Bollywood inspired... It comes with the pretty tiara and some VERY large shoulder pads - of which I decided to wear just one... I'm cool like that lol... Besides it would have clashed with my awesome braid, which is a new CATWA release for Cosmopolitan...
I sat for a while and henna tattooed my hands in a Boom design - from Sweet Poison, which perfectly fit with the dress and then all that was needed was a photography location...
I spent AGES looking for somewhere, forgetting the one place that simply screams Indian Elegance... ZAARA!!! Once I was there, it didn't take me long to find a secluded but romantic spot to capture the perfect picture that would represent the Indian Summer heat and showcase this gorgeous dress flawlessly!
What a beautiful way to start the week!!

What is she wearing;
Hair: CATWA - Leah (Available Now at Cosmopolitan)
Outfit (Including Tiara): Stargazer Creations - Lady of the Sands in Sunset (Available Now at The Instruments)

Welcoming Me Back...

That's it, the holiday is over, and I have been welcomed home with a bump LOL... No more living in cloud Emily land, where your parents look after you and everything is relaxing and fun... Its straight back into the reality, and by that I mean normal life including my SL and all the work that can come with it LOL... 
No sooner had I logged in yesterday, and was working through the mountain, when drama struck... Luckily Hell was able to handle it and I didn't need to be involved LOL but sometimes it really is like jumping on a skateboard and rolling down a HUGE hill!!!
There is no way that I'd normally do this, it would freak me out LOL. I might if I was allowed to sit down on the board, but there is no way I'd be as brave as my Rudh dolly and plan on doing it standing! Though I guess when you are able to handle drama, then sometimes you have to take the risk huh?!
I'm not even dressed for the task ahead of me really LOL... I mean OK I was wearing some combat boots, which I guess are smarter than heels or bare foot, which tends to be my usual foot look! But the dress, although it is very cute - from Sn@tch called Hayden - doesn't really look like it will be good protection against falling from a fast moving skateboard! 
Talking of skateboards, if you want some good boarding poses, and OK these are made for a man but they are perfectly good to be used by women too - as I proved hehe - then head to Signature Pose... 
Someone get the first aid kit ready, I have a feeling I might need it!!!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Reiko Mesh Hair in Crystal Pink (Past FLF Item)

Pose: Signature Pose - Jamie 1 (Includes Skateboard)

Sirens in the Secret Pool

Sometimes you take a good picture, when you take that picture it instantly becomes one of your favourites... This for me is one of those times, and I didn't know when to share it with you because it's one of those photos that I love and wanted to wait for just the right time...
Today, whilst on vacation, I found that time... I am gearing up to return to my home in Holland, I will be leaving my parents and arriving home tomorrow, but it's leaving me with mixed feelings. 
It's been very strange being without everyone that I talk to every day... The Gators, My bestieface and even some of those people that I talk to who aren't associated with either... I have missed my dog and cat, I've even kinda sorta missed my hubby LOL... Though the other side of me is thinking UGH I don't want to leave my family! I've had such a lovely break here, my mind is rested and I am ready to fight again, but just the thought of leaving is making me homesick already... 
Luckily I have a lovely picture ready to make me feel better, isn't it? This, as I have said before, is one of my favourite photos of late, and I just love the magic and serenity of it... That's how I feel right now... Serene!! Mind you, if I post again tomorrow, I'm not entirely sure the post will say the same LOL... 
Lilian and I bought these amazing dresses at the latest round of We <3 RP, from the deviousMinds store. I chose a sheer aqua colour but decided that I wasn't brave enough to wear it without something underneath... Luckily I had my old go-to body suit to pull on hehe... The place that Lil found for us to pose these amazing dresses is one called the Mysts of Eyr, which is a medieval fantasy jungle role-play sim... It's just the perfect location! 
The rests of my accessories are actually things from Half-Deer... The Mermaid's Majesty Bejewelled items - including the head fins and bracelets - are available from this month's line-up of The Arcade, whilst the adorable Jewel Jellybell Jellyfish comes from their release at Collabor88... These things make perfect accessories for the mermaids that walk on earth... 
Don't you love this photo... I know I do... and guess what?! TOMORROW I WILL BE AT HOME!!!

Fruity Cuties with Crazy Hair!

Today's post will be all about Fruit, and Hair... A weird combination I KNOW lol, but I have a fruity photo that does include some rather random hair to share whilst we discuss the biggest event in SL HAIR which is going to fill this space in the next few weeks... 
I will talk about the fruit later, but OH MY GOSH Hair Fair 2015 is coming... It will be here in July and will be raising money for Wigs for Kids as always, but there will be so many new wigs available that it won't just be the kids that benefit! We will all get some awesome new hairstyles too I am sure! Now I am sorry to share, I don't wish to make people jealous but I've been accepted as one of the early access hair fair bloggers and I am more than a little excited about it! I CANNOT WAIT! I'm already in the process of shaving my little avi head so that it's easy to get the wig demos on!! 
Until then, let me share with you something that is a little crazy fruity... With just a touch of mad hair to tickle your taste buds!
On the topic of hair... I cannot tell you what Lilian is wearing, but doesn't she look cute LOL... I on the other hand am wearing a style that I fell in love with whilst looking for something that would perfectly compliment my crazy fruity look... This style is called Rhythm by a store called Puft, all their styles feature this amazing puffy, afro-look and I AM IN LOVE WITH THEM hehe...
The fruity aspects of this outfit though, for the most part, come from this month's round of Collabor88... I say for the most part but you have to excuse the awesomely adorable fruity Kiwis - from Schadenfreude - and the fabulous (Yummy) glasses that I picked up at both current and past rounds of The Arcade
The umbrella is a current Collabor88 release from {Imeka} and it is available in both pink or red, and the retro tied tops and swim bottoms that both Lil and I are wearing are releases from (fashionably dead)... These do come in colours that are non-fruity, but Lil makes a perfect strawberry and I well... I am harking back to the days I used to spend hours in Sanctuary Rock being called RudeWatermelon Lasagne! 
Don't we make cute and crazy fruits hehe... Just think what kind of craziness there will be after Hair Fair!!!!!

Hair: Puft - Rhythm in Darks Pack

Not all Bumper Cars are so Cosmopolitan!

Being on holiday, visiting the family means that I am spending a LOT of time being driven around in other people's cars... The problem with this is that I tend to get VERY motion sick if I am made to sit in the back seat for too long... Yesterday was one of those times LOL... It wasn't pleasant! 
But why I hear you ask am I rambling on about this today... WELL... I have a photo with one of my favourite new pieces of furniture to share and I had the perfect excuse to talk about it, being in a car makes me feel like it's a bumper car when I'm not driving! Do you see the connection to the photo?! LOL... 
Like I said in the title, not all bumper cars are so cosmopolitan as this one... THIS IS AWESOME! I randomly chose a pink version - which is not ever my first colour choice but in this case I simply couldn't resist! - from the store d'yer maker at the last round of Cosmopolitan... I know that the event line-up has now changed but these can still be grabbed from their mainstore! 
But it's not just the car that I want to rave about... The outfit is a new one that I found at R3volt! I LOVE their designs, and this one is no exception to that rule!! I wore with it a new wig from SpellBound called Muse, that I believe you can still grab for yourself at The Arcade, and matched that with a pair of very high REIGN Heels. 
I love it when a look just falls together like this, and I love it even more when I can use PINK lol... I'm not a pink fan - it's actually the colour of pure evil dontcha know - but in this case it couldn't be ignored!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: SpellBound - Muse in Prints (Available Now at The Arcade
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 (Past Collabor88 Item)

There's not Mush-room in here...

It is June... I don't know about how your June is in your part of the world but in the UK at the moment it is more like Autumn than Summer. It's not cold exactly, but it's gray and murky and there is a definite fizz of rain in the air! 
I have been lucky with the photos that I have put together before coming to visit family, there always seems to be one that is right for the occasion of what I want to talk to you about LOL... Lucky how that works huh? I could never have predicted this Autumnal feeling weather in a million years, but the photo I have to share with you today really sums up that feeling. 
I'm actually - for the first time since I arrived - feeling a little bored and wondering what the heck to do with myself... BLOGGING is always a cure for that!
So I let my inner fae out to play... 
I put this look together due to a release from LODE for this month's line-up of Chapter Four... The Musha Gacha is just like any other LODE gacha release, I LOVE their flowers more than any other I have seen in SL... I HAD to have a set... Choosing the yellow set wasn't my best idea, it was the last one to come out of the machine LOL but if you want any other colours please feel free to ask, I may be able to help!
This slightly dark fae was then draped in a fur bodysuit, a VERY old release from SAKIDE, and whilst out exploring at the Garden of Dreams, she stopped briefly to pick up a very small - ImmateriA - friend who wrapped himself around her wrist like a bracelet! 
I LOVE being able to play as a fantasy character sometimes... It always makes me feel good to get away from the norm for a bit, and I will tell you right now that taking a break out of being on holiday to write to you made me feel less bored and so very relaxed hehe... Time to get on with being a lazy bum though!!! 

What is she wearing;
Head Accessory & Collar: LODE - Musha in Yellow (Available Now at Chapter Four
Hair: Olive - the Sweetpea Hair in Dark Fades (Available Now at The Arcade

I miss you guys...

HELLO SL I WAS HERE TODAY... Sometimes having a megaphone makes you feel strong, maybe that's just me but today was one of those days when everyone had gone to work in RL and I was left at home to fend for myself hehe... At least for a few hours... 
So I logged into SL, went shopping to grab myself things that I might have missed otherwise and sent a HUGE hello to the people that I am missing whilst I am in RL... It seems strange that even when you go on holiday the people you leave behind in SL are very much missed... 
So I send a HUGE shout out to everyone that I know and love in SL... The people I speak to every day, those I miss more than anything, and the people I work with in SL because without you it's not the same... 
The photo I am sharing today is one that I had made before I left for the UK, as all my photos are at the moment. It features a cute but smart outfit that had been a past Fi*Friday release from Bens Boutique, as well as the awesome megaphone I had to use hehe... 
By the way... In case you didn't realise, I miss you all!!!

Bunny Hopping for Coffee!

I am loving being a home at the moment, it's only been 5 days since I left Holland and everyone in SL behind but aside from a feeling of relaxation I realised just how much I miss everyone in world right now... 
Normally on my days off - or working at home days - I would get up, log into the PC and then after a while into SL and share a morning coffee with my MC Sister and RL friend Lil... It's weird not being able to do that... 
I won't complain, as I am loving being at home, and I am lucky enough to have the people in my SL that mean the most on my phone with me LOL, but when you talk to someone for hours every day it always feels a little strange when they are gone! 
I do have a few photos of myself and Lil stashed away that will no doubt be blogged whilst I am in England... This one is the first of them! It's easy to just take photos of us, she's there with me when the rest of the MC are asleep and as a photographer herself we are both using the other as a photo prop LOL... 
This photo was mostly her fault though, as she had been shopping at the recent World Goth Fair, and had found these amazing {MV} Bonedancer Pants... I HAD TO HAVE THEM... 
The rest of the outfit was just stuff I had stashed away in my hoard, but when you put it all together, and then see me leapfrog over my sister, it's one of those moments that really feels fun captured on print this way hehe... I just miss our morning coffees!

Get Ready For It...

Last night - whilst still on holiday in the UK I might add - I went to a concert with my mother, sister and cousin... Reliving my childhood days at a Pop Concert of such a big magnitude I feel thoroughly blown away this morning. I was like one HUGE jaw dropping party, on a scale that this old-school pop band has always been capable of. I feel like I am floating on a cloud this morning! 
So when I woke up with a need to share this with you, I felt lucky to have a photo that shared the bright colours of the RL concert ready and waiting to share with you too... 
I went bright, I found the COOLEST stage that I could whilst taking this photo... It was at a place called Madam Lala's Revue in the London sims and after asking permission from it's owner I danced and sang on stage, just as the RL band I watched last night had done! 
The dress is one that I have had waiting to be blogged for a while now - I really hope that I do not get in trouble for blogging it so late after the event it was released at has closed - but this Paper Moon dress, a Friends Electric Leather Dress, was just so cool and kinda reminiscent of something that might have been worn by my cartoon pop hero Jem that I couldn't resist using it! 
I teamed it with a bright yellow Lost Junction collar - to match the yellow belt of the dress - and some super high HOLLYHOOD Elsa Heels keeping the rest of my look simple so that I could rock out in style! 
I plan on dancing around like crazy today... You never know who will be watching so it's best to dance like no one is, and I will leave you with a video of the band I went to see last night!!! Thank you to Mr. Billy Arentire for allowing me to use the stage and I hope you enjoy one of my first crush bands... 
This is Take That with one of their newest songs... "Get Ready For It!"

I'm being a Lazy, Sleepy Head!

Yes at the moment I am a sleepy head, I will not deny that fact... I will however, tell you that I have a damn good reason for becoming a lazy bum! I am, even as I sit here writing this, actually on vacation. I am visiting my family in England for two weeks and so have basically become like a floppy lazy butt, relaxing and taking things VERY easily! 
I've been a good blogger though, I can't give up on my addiction LOL, so before I came home I prepared a collection of photos that I could share with you over the two week period... That means you won't miss or forget me, and it also means that I can feed my addiction hehe... 
My first look in this very lazy period, is certainly able to represent that feeling... 
The hair is one from (fashionably dead) which you can grab for yourself at The Arcade this month. Normally I'd have been trying really hard to find a red version, but this wig also comes in these fab dip-dyed colours... I LOVE this fiery look! Just hope that the kitty doesn't dig his claws in. 
I then decided that I would give this lazy look a little Sci-Fi flair... This is something that I would NEVER normally do, but the new make-up releases from Stargazer Creations, called Andromeda, just grabbed my attention and then when topped off with the awesome, yet older, Space Eyes - that tied together with the hair - I couldn't really not wear it hehe... 
Lastly it was time for accessories... Now I knew that I wouldn't be wearing clothes, but I couldn't help myself with going a little overboard on the necklace front LOL... I wore a Loose Belt Choker from [ abrasive ] and then added a Lucky Cat Charm with a Third Eye design from (Nylon Outfitters) and a Dark Matter Black Moon Necklace from ANE to complete that mysterious and Sci-Fi Kitty look... 
I just really hope that the kitten doesn't decide to dig it's claws in lol, and now it's back to being a lazy bum for me!! YAY!!

Bang, Bang... They shot you down...

BANG! BANG! They shot you down... BANG! BANG! You hit the ground... BANG! BANG! My shoes they shot you down!
Another day for photos taken from a different perspective I feel... I am loving the fact that I can be creative and it's making me feel really excited to see the actual outcomes. This is one of those photos that makes me smile, because I love the fact that I am learning to do more artsy fartsy photos and not just focus on me!!!
OK so this one is focused on me, but a bit I never normally look at... My feet!!! 
I bought these amazing shoes from Remarkable Oblivion a few weeks ago now - at the time they were a Kustom9 release and I am not sure if the event line-up has changed yet but it might be worth checking! 
I wanted to create a kind of Western Steam Punk look, and spent ages picking out an outfit, but at the end of the day the best part of this entire outfit was the shoes with their amazing rolling gun barrels and the awesome antielle Metallic Dolly Tights in the copper colour... So I HAD to focus on the feet... They looked so good walking out of this bar at the Wild West RP sim that is Gehanna Crossing
To play the post out today, I wanted to share with you the PERFECT song. OK it's a cover version that I am sharing but I LOVE how she sounds on this record, if you haven't heard it, perhaps you will be as impressed as I was... 
Let me play you out with Lady Gaga singing "Bang Bang..."

Dinner and a Bed for the Night

Normally when I take pictures there tends to be a central human focus, be that myself or if I am really lucky a model! Yet sometimes you have to push the boat out and try new things...
One of the things that I am not so sure of, and definitely not so good at would be landscape photography. I learnt that last night whilst working on an article that I have been asked to write for a new to SL magazine I am working for called L'Amour Diversity. There will be more information on that later, but for now bare in mind that I am working on improving skills involving location photography and somewhat artsy-fartsy type photos lol...
Recently you may have heard that The Arcade is now in full swing... If you haven't heard, where the heck have you been hiding?! There are so many things available and I plan on hitting the yardsales very hard, very soon, but for now I want to show you something that I was priviledge enough to be sent as a blogger box... The items from Consignment are AMAZING - as always...
I've always been a fan of the work of Wavie Haller, but sometimes he - like others I cover things for - will sometimes make things that I get confused about what I want to do with them...  For me the Arcade release was one of those this time... The items are based around a Summer in the Park, and what looks like it could be straight from some American park somewhere - possibly Central Park - but don't quote me on that LOL... The items are fairly versatile though and could be used in any setting - well most of them at least - but I have to admit that things were pretty big, especially the really pretty rare Bridge! How was I going to use it?!
By doing something artsy-fartsy of course... Thank you Wavie for getting me to push myself with this one... The poor little pidgeon found himself a cosy bed for the night in this hat, and a yummy hotdog for supper too, so the bridge proved to be the perfect roosting spot, the dark scary things kept away by a street light... He was a VERY lucky pigeon!!

Crazy Times call for LOTS OF GLITTER!

When you're having a bad day, there is nothing that will cheer you up more than a little sparkle... In my case that works anyway, I cannot really say it is the same for everyone.
One of the sparkles that makes me smile the most, however, is in fact looking though my SL inventory and pulling together a look that I LOVE...
This look is one of those, but I will fully admit that when I started to work on it, I found myself thinking what the heck am I doing... Isn't it great that the sparkle can come from something like that?
The reason for this entire look was possibly due to one of the most bonkers items that I have been sent to blog in a long while. It's an Arcade release, one of those events that people are always crazy for, and I feel pretty honoured that I was sent a blogger pack in advance of the event - although I am kinda late with blogging it because I had absolutely no freaking idea what I was going to do with it.
The RachelBreaker HELPmeHats are a crazy collection of interesting looking baseball caps, which for the record look awesome with that newer Magika hair release called Lessons... That is your lesson for today.
I wore the crazy hat, with a matchingly crazy dress... This was a past event release from Cubic Cherry Kre-ations, and I am not sure if it is still available, but it does fit perfectly with the HELPmeHats... Then the rest of the accessories were just things that I'd dug out of my hoard... A Name Tag from DirtyStories, a SilentSparrow Betta Fish for a friend and neck jewellery from ginchi and Luas...
A perfectly crazy look for a day when I'm bored at work and need a little inject of Rainbow Craziness...

Wake Up you Lazy Bum!

There are a few sounds that if I'm honest I could live without in life... Hearing a child scream, hearing someone else's music whilst sitting on a bus, or the sound of someone's car alarm going off in the middle of the night as examples, but one of the things that I always find myself cursing most is the Alarm Clock... One of those necessary evils! Still there isn't much longer that I will need one as my holiday begins on FRIDAY!!!! Then it's two weeks of being at home in the UK, being looked after by my mum and a lot of time just reading, sleeping and enjoying myself... IT SOUNDS PERFECT!!!
Talking of sounding perfect and thinking of home, I'll tell you a little story LOL... I went travelling to New Zealand a few years ago, and before I left my sister was very upset saying she'd miss me a lot... Anyway, to cut a long story short the first time I'd set the alarm I didn't check the ringer sound - ALWAYS CHECK THE SOUND PEOPLE!  - I was rudely awoken by my sister's voice filling the room, screaming loudly "WAKE UP YOU LAZY BUM"... Never have I wanted to throttle her quiet so much LOL...
This morning was no exception... I felt like I'd been right next to a gong when someone hit it at full whack. I wanted to just turn over and go back to sleep but alas in RL I cannot... In SL however, I can be as lazy as I want and at the moment that's an I want to A LOT, especially since I got my new bed...
I'd seen the Sweetpea Bed - from Olive - in The Arcade line-up this month and was bereft when I realised that it was in fact a rare... I had very little chance I would get it, and I was so worried that it would cost me a sheer fortune... As luck would have it, it cost me NOTHING! My sister Solde, had heard that I was looking for one of these awesome beds and she found a fairly cheap one on the marketplace... She treated me to it as a wonderful present... THANK YOU SODAPOP *hugs tight*...
In my quest for the bed though, my lovely hubby HellBone had also gotten into The Arcade and had tried his luck on the machine, hence why I am also able to show you the cute Sweetpeas Slumber Mask too... It's perfect for a princess on a pea bed!  
The Arcade isnt the only gacha event taking plae at the moment though, I hit up the Ai Gacha event recently and won some adorable goodies like these [Glitzz] Face Clouds and the adorable Nerdology Cushions that are scattered in a mess all over my bed hehe... My pretty Beach Towel Dress - from fllo - is so comfortable that I fell asleep wearing it, and thinking about that I should probably have taken off my new Sunna Necklace too - you can get your hands on these from Lassitude & Ennui at We <3 RP by the way... Lucky I didn't strangle myself huh?!

My Disney Princess Nun Story

It's dressing up day...Today I want to be a Princess... Yes that's right, a Princess... Not something I ever normally choose, unless it's a zombie or some other dark style princess, but no today I am a PRINCESS!!! 
I think the reason that I have reverted to a childhood dream of mine is that it is something easy to deal with! I've been so busy - and OK maybe that's not a strong enough word for it - dealing with drama of the MC lately, and busy - in a good way - writing an article for a magazine that I will tell you more about real soon, that it feels like the stresses are too much and I want to act like I did when I was little... Back when I was 5 or 6 my biggest aspiration in life was to be a Disney Princess when I grew up LOL! 
In SL I am able to get one step closer and live that dream for myself!
This dress from Stargazer Creations - called Pernilla in a bright Ruby colour - gave me that push to be a princess... I mean it should, it was released at an event called Fit for a Princess - that closes on June 7th by the way so HURRY if you want to check it out! It even comes WITH A TIARA... You can buy the dress and save yourself millions on a pretty gold crown for an INSTAPRINCESS look!!! 
Then in true Disney Princess style I went for a walk amongst the flowers, on a lonely hill, without an escort - because you know as well as I do EVERY princess can go without one LOL - for what actually became more like a Maria - that Sound of Music Nun - moment LOL... 
The Hill itself is an amazing pose prop from Image Essentials - that was an older event release but I am doing so badly with getting releases out on time at the moment and this one is available at the mainstore. Thanks to Kay Weston, Miss Image Essentials herself, I can now live my Princessy Nun dreams and skip over this mountainous hill... Taking a deep breath and singing loudly and off key - join me if you will - "THE HILLS ARE ALIVEEEEEEEEEEE WITH THE SOUND OF MUSIC"...

Oh shit... I smeared my Make-Up!

In RL I can totally 100% honestly say that I barely ever wear make-up... It's just something that I never seem to have time or the inclination to do. If I'm going out for something special then OK the barest minimum, the only time that varies is if I am going to a gig!
In SL things are slightly different, I barely wear make-up unless it comes on a skin already, but I am always seen without my scars... Though when I do smother Rudh's face in make-up it's usually very dramatic... Something rainbow bright or smudged and messed up, never plain simple - maybe not never but rarely...
This was especially the case when I went to the recently ended Cosmetics Fair... So many beautiful looks for you face, and I ended up smudging mine almost as soon as I was done applying it!
Well OK that's not entirely true... I bought the Smeared Makeup in a crimson tone from antielle... I HAD to have it, it was like a burning desire to make myself look like'd I'd been messed up lol...
The rest of my outfit was just purely and simply a look of the day!
I had been wearing some goodies that I had bought at the latest round of Suicide Dollz... A Forever Young Beary Evil Tank top in purple to match the ballet style Belladonna Wedges that The Horror had created for World Goth Fair - PURPLE who'd have thought it huh? LOL - and some [ abrasive ] Tattered Strap Leggings, for a casual but Rudhish look!!
Simple, look of the day... See I do that sometimes LOL I'm not always dressed up all crazy like!?!
