OMG Sports?!

Its nearly the weekend, and it's nearly the start of the 2016 Gators MC Halloween Maze Event, but I think today I am going to try and enjoy the calm before the virtual storm as I have to play hostess and guide around the huge maze and horror rooms we have created... I'm really excited about opening the event, but actually I am more excited for all of the Horrorific events which are coming in the next few days... My inner darkside is already jumping for joy, so please expect lots more blood and guts and gore over the next few weeks... 
Till then however, I plan on taking things a little easy... Maybe doing something silly, maybe playing some sports, something to get the adrenaline going... Something to keep me entertained!!! 
Maybe a little basketball?! 
I'm surprising myself by suggesting sport here, there's nothing that I ever could say I love about Sport... I used to love playing Rugby when I was younger but now, not so much... Yet I couldn't resist some down time, and this pose was crying out to me to play basketball... 
The pose is one from Come Soon - that was released for the Men Only Monthly September Round and is available until October 14th.
Now as I admit that I am NOT a sporty person at all, when it came to finding an outfit for this pose I was stumped...UNTIL I found the most awesome and very Rudhish pair of Legwarmer Shorts from Vinyl at the current round of Tres Chic.After that it was plain sailing, a shirt to match, and I couldn't resist this awesome shirt from imbue that's decorated with B**bs, and I was ready for some sports-ish activity LOL... 
Anyone fancy a game of one on one?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika -  Stay the Night in 02
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Tattoo: [White Widow] - Spotlight 
Top: imbue, - Little Tee in B**bs White 
Pants: Vinyl - Ariana Sports Shorts/Legwarmers in White (Available until October 5th at Tres Chic
Pose: Come Soon - Street Basketball in Pose 1 (Available until October 14th at Men Only Monthly

Places for a Good Book

Today is cold and windy in Holland, with smatterings of rain showers... Some people might not be too happy with that but I am euphoric... I LOVE AUTUMN and it's feeling like it's finally arrived! Lots of cool weather to follow I hope, lots of wrapping up warm and hiding from the cold, and all the good stuff that Autumn - or Fall for the Americans out there - brings. 
One of my favourite things to do in the Autumn - and in the Winter too - is curl up with a good book... I love to read all different kinds of things though I admit that romance and fantasy top my reading list, and I love nothing better than a cosy place to curl up and read... 
Have some pretty pictures to share today, I've been trying to take shots of furniture and décor as the focus - I have a LOT of respect for the people that take pictures like this all the time - I'm so not good at it LOL... 
My first attempt at Décor photography is a place that would be amazing to read fantasy stories... 
A gorgeous Autumn forest location, where books and candles bring the fairytales to life... 
Created using SAYO "Pages of Flight" Throne, and some very pretty candles from Second Spaces, this place is the perfect place to read fairy tales - maybe something like the abandoned Toiz "Autumn Fairy Story Book". 
My second picture is a man's work place... Maybe it's a good place while he's working quietly to read some steamy romance? 
Created using items from nefarious.invention's current Arcade Gacha collection, which by the way closes on September 30th - I love the snuggly feel to this room. It's somewhere that my Dad or Grandad may have worked when I was little, with a beaten old leather chair in the corner. I can almost feel that the air smells of wood, gasoline or even on the odd occasion whisky... 
Seeing these cosy places makes me want to curl up with a book, so for today I am going to disappear, I just want to know, where would you like to curl up and read? 

What's in the picture;
Picture 1:
Chair: SAYO - Pages of Flight Throne
Candles: Second Spaces - Forest Lights (Available until October 6th at Collabor88)
Book: Toiz - Autumn Fairy Story Book
Doll: DRD - Andolys Pinochio (No Longer Available!)

School for Blogging?!

School is in session and instead of being one of the bad kids that sits in the back of the class I want to learn a few things...
I'm going to put out a call to the SL Blogger community as I'm both curious to learn more and also kinda intrigued about the way in which other bloggers are doing things. I love what I do, I love the pictures that I am taking and I love being creative in the way that I am, but I'm starting to feel like I haven't and don't do enough... Normally I prefer to blog what I love, but any time I've applied to blog for things I get no response, and therefore I am left wondering what if am doing something wrong?!
So I have questions, maybe if you have insights into things you'd be willing to share...
I dressed for School, I'm in a classroom, I'm willing to learn... Teach me!
Regularly reading the useful articles that are posted on the SL Bloggers Support website, and listening to the conversations that go on within the group really does help, but there are still questions that stick in my mind, and the best place for me to get my words straight and into some kind of sense is here... Please feel free to comment and leave me answers!?!
I've been blogging for over 5 years now and compared to some I still get fairly low statistics when it comes to page views and Flickr likes - the two main things that seem to be a necessity to creators and event planners seeking bloggers - and I cannot work out why. I LOVE the pictures that I take, but am I doing something wrong? If I want to get work as a blogger for events or stores should I be focusing more on the fashion, do artsy photos work less effectively for promotion, or am I way off the mark?
I feel like my photography style has come a long way in the last few months, although part of me is more than a little narked off with my PC because I cannot seem to get shadows working - which drives me bonkers - I would love a super computer if anyone has one going spare LOL...
Then there is the subject of Social Media... I know that a lot of people say posting on various media sites is a good idea, but as a bit of a noob I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO!?! I use Flickr - that's an addiction - but I just deleted my RL Facebook account because I cannot stand Facebook with a passion! I have pinterest, but don't make as much use of it as I should for SL really, and I wouldn't even know where to start when it comes to things like Twitter or - what's that other one that everyone uses - Plurk?! Sticking with Flickr right now though, because that's what I know how to use LOL, I see people post and repost their pictures to get more air-time near the top of people's lists... Is that something that I should be doing? Is it common practice? That seems a little bit sneaky to me, it's just a way to get more likes from the same people that have already given you a star isn't it?!
Please don't get me wrong in all of this, I LOVE what I do and love the fact that having a blog gives me a chance to be creative and express myself in ways that I simply could not do in RL, yet sometimes I see others and think what am I doing wrong?! I KNOW that comparing myself to others is silly, and yes I do it far more than I should, but at the end of the day it's human nature, we want to be the best that we can in whatever it is we're doing right? Survival of the fittest, or should that be Promotion of the bestest? I'm not sure.
Regardless of what I learn from asking about all this I will be carrying on, I cannot give up an addiction to blogging that easily, and even if people don't want me on their blogging team maybe that's a good thing as it gives me more freedom?!

Finding Peace

Yesterday was a sad day in our RL home... HellBone and I lost one of our awesome sauce pets, our little Chicken - Bontje - passed away, we think most likely due to old age but the tough old bird fought till the end really trying not to let it beat her. She was the leader of our little chicken pack - we used to jokingly say she was more of a rotweiler than a chicken - and this morning was strange not being able to hear her talking away as the sun was coming up.
Still at the end, all day yesterday, it felt like she was trying, struggling, and although I hope not, suffering... Today I hope that she is at Peace, scrabbling around somewhere lovely with an endless supply of meal worms and sweetcorn, and a soft warm straw bed... It's bringing a tear to my eye just thinking about it... I hope she is at Peace...
A peaceful backdrop was easy to find, I wanted somewhere that I could think and create some positive thoughts in my mind... I found just the right location at my favourite photo spot - WHOLE WHEAT - where they have a mini Peace Garden photospot set up...
I was not fancily dressed, merely comfortable in my Real Worn Out Jeans - from Addams - and my Madori Open Plaid Shirt - from Blueberry - but comfort was key as my emotions are a little tattered right now...
Although I am now at work I am planning on trying to relax and find myself some inner peace... As much as feelings hurt things will heal and right now I'm just happy to think she's not suffering anymore!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Opal in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Tattoo: Identity - Deep Within
Shirt: Blueberry - Madori Open Shirts in Plaid 4 (Available until October 6th at Collabor88)
Bracelets: RealEvil Industries - Surya Rings Collection RARE

Whooping HellBone's Ass

Last night was FUN! I had a few drinkies with some of my favourite people and didn't stop laughing right up until the moment I logged out of SL for bed! I REALLY needed it, I needed some time to just let loose and laugh like a crazy loonpants... This morning though I woke up feeling crappy with cramp in my legs and sneezing almost constantly! So today I will be taking things a little easier, until I have to work this afternoon at least. I need to do some chores, but that's it NOTHING more! 
Except perhaps, beat HellBone's butt on a game on the Playstation?! 
This is a pose from Come Soon Poses but it's perfect for a Lazy Sunday Morning right?! The pose I've used is called Love Games - and this is pose 1 in a series - which you can win for yourself at You Gacha until September 30th. 
I cant play on the Playstation for very long, it tends to make me sick - I get really bad motion sickness - but today, for just a little while I'm about to whoop HellBone's Ass! 

What are they wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Amoret in  reds

Seeking Viking Men!

I've been watching a TV show on the History Channel - yes my inner geek is very happy at the moment - called Barbarians Rising recently... It's a docudrama about the so called barbarians that took on the Roman Empire in an attempt to save their homelands and people, and actually it's pretty good... Having studied Archaeology I tend to get a little bit geeky and will sometimes be known to shout at a screen that "that isn't right" so the fact I'm thinking it's good is telling you something LOL...
It's also gotten my blogger mojo working in overdrive... I WANT TO DO SOMETHING BARBARIANISH!!! Only problem is, I don't want to stick to true Barbarian... I want to give it that fantasy, sexed-up, video game style Barbarian Warrior Girl twist... SO that's that I did LOL... 
It's really not hard to find the right bits and pieces in SL to make an outfit like the one I wanted... I really didn't need to look all that hard for it - in fact I got very lucky that I'd been sent all the items I needed as a blogger, which is one of the many perks I guess - yet once the pieces were added together, I was more than happy about the fantasy, sexed-up, video game style Barbarian Warrior Girl twist look I'd pulled together! 
The basis of the outfit was this awesome outfit from Lassitude & Ennui - for the current round of We <3 RP until September 30th - is the Conqueror Set, shown here in Steel... It went perfectly with the accessory I chose to add from Paper Moon. The Necklace of Da'at is Paper Moon's release for The Secret Affair this month - I'm hoping that the large stone in the middle will distract from a few of those bruises that she's been getting in fights! 
Now before I finish running around like a Barbarian Warrior skank - lol - I wanted to share details of the sim with you... This was taken at Skarvald, and I highly recommend it if you're looking for a Vikingesque location, either to roleplay or take pictures in... Just don't forget your observer tag if you do head into the location! 
Excuse me though, I have Viking Men to Conquer LOL...

Waiting and Watching

The days are getting shorter and the nights are beginning to close in earlier... Autumn is really on it's way... Not that I am complaining, I LOVE Autumn and everything that comes with it... The cooler air, the feeling of a desire to hibernate and not forgetting Halloween of course, but I love the fact that it gets darker earlier...
So now I stand here in the early evening, pensively waiting for my favourite Holiday of the year - Halloween - like a mistress waiting for the arrival of her lover... Excitment hanging in the air like a smog cloud...
I love the atmosphere in the photo that I have chosen to use today, a lonely mistress waiting for her lover in the dark smoggy night...
The dress used is one from Petite Mort, a Lexi Lace Up Dress in Bone, is available from the Whore Couture Fair until October 1st, and as sexy as it is from the front, the back view is just gorgeous... I love the soft lace look, the laces and that voluptuous curve that it gives a bottom.
Her lover must be one lucky man for a dress like that...
She can be excited about that, and I on the other hand will be more than a little excited about the arrival of Halloween in a month... Expect lots of Blood, Gore and Horror... I cannot wait!!!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Five Minutes in 02
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Tattoo: [White Widow] - Spotlight
Dress: Petite Mort - Lexi Lace Up Dress in Bone (Available until October 1st at Whore Couture Fair)

Time for an Adventure!

I was stuck at home all weekend this weekend! Not that that is ever a bad thing but it meant that I was able to be a bit of a busy bee when it came to things like getting some pictures taken and edited... I still maintain the fact that being a blogger, one of the worst things you need to do is make lists with urls of all the locations where you got things! There must be a simple way of doing it?!
I edited so many pictures that I have way too much choice and had to play 'eenie meanie miney mo' when it came to choosing what I would share this morning... THIS was the winner, this was the mo!
My MC Sister Lil recently made over her land again, going for a farmy feel, so we jumped into a car and went exploring!
The car that we are using is actually a pose prop from Come Soon Poses... It's one of those items for the newer secret collection style events that has hit the SL scene as of late, this time the men's version known as the "Swag Bag!" Swag Bag is like the Luxebox which I mentioned before. You pay a set price for a secret item from a handful of designers and will not know what it is until you open it. I know a LOT of people that still like the luxebox but I remember being sorely disappointed after all of the hype so I'm not sure I buy into this type of event - but hey cannot please everyone all the time right?!
This pose from the September Swag Bag does please me though... It's the perfect amount of awesome and silly, that works so well with Lil and I! This is the Come Soon Adventure 02 Pose, and it comes complete with the awesome car! It was just Lil, Me and the countryside... OH and her Ferret Pet - from Jian - that stowed away in our adventure car!
I wonder what Lil sees through the spyglass... I wonder why I didn't put black paint on the end of it before I gave it to her to look through lol... I'd have loved to see her with a ring around her eye... Such Comedy LOL...

What are they wearing;
Hair: yumyum - 81 in Red
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Top: Blueberry - Tank Top Group Gift
Hair: Truth - Jill in Gingers
Top: SPIRIT - Neal Tank Top

Shooting the Messenger

Everyone always seems so keen on shooting the messenger... Over the past few days I've noticed that it always seems really easy for someone to get mad at you when venting their frustrations, even though you may not be the root cause and may in fact be the one trying to help them. It's something I've noticed more and more with the job that I now have in Secondlife - I always feel so bad for the people that I am here to assist, especially as most of them have no knowledge of a virtual reality like Secondlife. Still, I have definitely learnt a little more about how to diffuse a situation and turn those frustrated people into happy campers... 
Rudh on the other hand is a cause of trouble LOL... Least she is today... Today she's been caught shooting, someone else moved in on her patch hehe... 
Not her MC Patch - no one touches that - but her patch that she works in... All hookers have their patch right?! The place they like to go to scout for business! Rudh's patch of choice is at Dead End City, the perfect place for a hooker to watch the cars drive by... Someone was in her patch this morning... Someone is no longer an issue... The police are an issue! I need to find somewhere to stash my gun! 
The dress she chose to wear today is one from Elegance Boutique - I loved it because of the asymmetrical shape and the strapping. It can be dressed up or down due to the fabric textures used and it's a great dress, if you don't mind showing off your knickers! OR you could be daring like Rudh and go pantie free?! 
Talking of things being free though, hold my gun and I am running free LOL... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: DeLa - Emily in Reds (Available until September 23rd at Uber
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2

Is Purple Really Me?

I got my blogger groove back... I lost it for a while due to some over the top drama, but I think I have refound that spark which makes me tick... I've started to be creative again and I am actually finding it more therapeutic than I even remembered... WHY DID I LOSE MY GROOVE FOR SO LONG?!
Yesterday I was sent some awesome new make-ups from one of the stores that I have been working with as a blogger for a while, and it really sparked my imagination. 
I never wear much make-up in RL, mostly because I am kinda crap at putting it on, but in SL it's soooooo easy... Just the click of a button... It allows you to experiment so easily with colours and styles... That's why today, I am trying PURPLE!
It's not my usual colour by any means, in fact normally I tend to shy away from Purple, but when I saw the colours in the new make up sets I kinda wanted to give it a try. 
The Harajuku Facial Stickers, the Mitsuko Glitter Eyebrows and the Momotaro Lipsticks are all brand new releases from PSYCHO.Byts for the newly opened Cosmetic Fair
If that wasn't enough purple, I randomly decided that I wanted to wear some purple hair - in the form of this Wasabi Pills "Chanel" style - and even decided to add some amazing Phantom Eyes from Suicidal Unborn... 
The last accessory I added was these yummy looking Half-Deer Summer Delights Glasses that I have been waiting for just the right moment to wear... This seemed like the right kind of outfit... 
Only problem was that under all the purple that doesn't really look like me, does it? 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Chanel Mesh Hair 
Head Jewel: {PSYCHO:Byts} - Harajuku Facial Stickers (Available until September 30th at Cosmetic Fair
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2

Dog Walking in Heels

I am sure that I am not the only person in the world that will ever say this but you just cannot help but LOVE your free days. Recently I've been working two jobs and so any time that I get to myself is precious time... It's been lovely just doing things around the house, especially now it seems to be a little cooler than it has been over the past few days, yet I cannot stop myself from feeling a need to talk to you. 
So what do I like to do in my free time, well a side from blogging and taking the pictures that goes with it, one of my favourite RL past-times is going for walks with my dog Izzy... She's a Saluki - a breed of dog that is a part of the Greyhound family - and she loves nothing more than a good long run. Today I'm thinking of her and our walks, as I write to you... 
I've yet to find anyone in SL that makes dogs like Salukis - they are the same shape as a greyhound but have longer fur that is akin to their Setter cousins - HOWEVER, there is one store that makes amazing animals - one which I don't mind admitting I am slightly addicted to - the store in question is Jian
I've talked to you about Jian before, but as you can see in my picture today, I'm taking my new Jian Lively Lab Puppy for a walk at the gorgeous Saint Pete City Sim. It's such a pretty location, a true feeling of Autumn and the perfect place for me to walk this little lab! 
The outfit that she is wearing is not really a true dog walking outfit I suppose, maybe Rudh just got home from a crazy fun night out and needed to take her little friend out for a wee walk?! 
Her Knotted White - Blueberry - Shirt and Thigh High "Lisa" Split Pants - Asteria - definitely seem more like they are suited to an up scale wine bar than dog walking, not to mention the crazy high heels - Reign - surely she'd going to get blisters?!
Sitting here talking about walking a dog I feel that perhaps it's time for me to walk mine... Though I will be doing it without the towering heels LOL... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Cerys in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Collar: MONS - Extreme Choker in Silver 
Tattoo: Identity - Night Crawler 
Top: Blueberry - Romy Knotted Top in White 
Pants: Asteria - Lisa Slit Pants in Black 
Shoes: REIGN - Coven Heels 
Dog: Jian - Lively Labs in Chocolate Companion Pup (Available until September 30th at The Arcade

The Glamorous Face of Death

I have a desire to do something a little different today, and so I'm being a little bit artsy fartsy creative! It hasn't happened for a while that I want to do something a little bit fantasy creative, and whilst I was talking to my MC sister Lil I got a notion to take a close up shot of my face - apparently I'm good at them LOL... 
Opening my hoard and diving into it can sometime be fairly treacherous, but I made straight for my cosmetics and face accessories folders and dug around for a while... The result was the gorgeous face of Death... 
Death is often portrayed as something dark and scary and evil looking, but why couldn't death be glamorous or magical looking... 
A face that started because of two different make-up layers eventually formed into what I was thinking a glamorous version of Death may look like... I started with two - possibly not meant to be worn together but still cute when layered up - applier layers. I'm a LOGO head user, and sometimes finding the right skins and make-ups can be a bit of a nightmare, but with these appliers I got very lucky. The stars are actually the base layer - I won these in a gacha at VileCult when I went to check out their brand new store. The second layer that I applied was a FLF release from CURELESS - if you know anything about me you may well realise that I am kinda addicted to CURELESS - and that gave the skullish look to my Death face... 
It looked good but it was missing something... It really did not seem to work with human eyes... I NEEDED something to fix that... Then I remembered something new that I had been sent to blog. A set of eyes from a gacha for the Twisted Hunt at SongBird. These eyes are like crystals, brightly coloured crystals, and they seemed perfect for the eyes of Death. As I was looking at eyes however, I found the amazing Seventh Eye Attachment that I had totally forgotten I'd bought from CURELESS a few months ago... THEY MADE IT COMPLETE!!! Framing the face with a long white shock of Moon Hair, I was happy... 
So this is the glamorous and magical face of Death... At least that's my interpretation of it anyway LOL... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Moon - Eternal Sunshine in Variety 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Extra Eyes: CURELESS [+] - The Seventh Eye in Brown

Mermaid Sleeping

The nights are too hot again... LOL It's supposed to be getting close to my favourite season - Autumn or Fall depending on where you are in the world - but it's like we are having a very late summer blast for the second week of September... So I am finding it very hard to sleep... I find myself wondering if other places in the house might be cooler? The sofa perhaps? 
It seems so much easier to find a cool spot to sleep in Secondlife... One of my favourite places to sleep is on the sofa in the early morning, and this sofa is in one of my new favourite places, the home of a very good new friend. While he was away at work I snuck in this morning and had a little nap wrapped up in my new Mermaid Tail Blanket from Identity... I had to have one of these from The Dressing Room as soon as I saw it, I REALLY want one in RL!! Although right now a warm snuggly blanket is the last thing on my mind LOL... 
Now if you will please shhhhhhh I need to catch up on some beauty sleep! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Heartbeat in 02 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Tattoo: [White Widow] - Whiplash 2

Driving my Pink Caddy

I had a long sleepless night, for some reason I cannot seem to get myself comfortable and I feel like I should get out of bed and find somewhere different to sleep, if it's possible cooler and more comfortable but I am not entirely sure that is possible! 
So I got up and went for a drive... 
The very early morning, late summer sunshine appearing over the hills made everything seem to glow... It was luminescent, the light this morning...
I tried to recapture the feeling of the early morning light in Secondlife but there was just no way... I LOVE the millions of different windlights, and having the opportunity to create my own, but nothing seemed to capture that feeling... Still it made for a fun photo shoot... My doggie and I driving in the new Come Soon Pink Cadillac - that comes with the "Smile My Friend" Pose for this month's Men Only Monthly!
Let's do some more driving, but first SELFIE!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Five Minutes in 02

Dresses in the Shade

I may be in a little trouble when it comes to my post today, because I am more than a little bit late with it! I was sent the most gorgeous of dresses by a store that I am a part of the blogger team for and I will admit that whilst I was cleaning my hoard it got misplaced... I only just found it, and I am hoping that although the release event is now over this gorgeous dress will have made it back to the mainstore!
It's the perfect dress for this time of year - long, soft and floaty - just what you want when weather gets hot!
I was a bit unsure at first, I'm not normally that keen on the long dresses in SL... I mean I wear them occasionally in RL but in SL I dress Rudh as a Barbie and long floaty never really seems to be something that occurs to me! Maybe I should do it more often?!
The dress in question is one from a collection of different colours and designs by Petite Mort... This Zoe Dress I chose to wear in a gorgeous Cerulean colour, looks so soft and light that I REALLY want one in RL lol...
Now to spend some time wandering around in the garden, and hopefully I can find a shady spot to keep cool in...

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

Siesta Time

It's very hot again in Holland today. Probably not as hot as it can get in other places but very hot all the same. I feel like I am melting and because of the heat I feel very very sleepy, yet there are chores to be done and this sleeping beauty cannot rest. 
Instead of running around the house like a headless chicken though, there is only one thing that I really want to do right now, and it looks something a little like this... 
In many places when things get warm, people have a siesta. I cannot really sleep properly during the day but the thought of it feels very nice, and I know that just being able to turn your head off and go to sleep is one of the easiest ways to recharge your system. Personally if I sleep during the day then I cannot sleep at night so it doesn't always seem very effective... AND when I sleep I never ever look this glamorous... 
Rudh makes sleeping look pretty, wearing a skimpy black negligee from Kaithleen's and the barest of accessories, she looks peaceful, rested and very pretty - if it was the RL me on a bed it would be far less elegant than that LOL... 
Her bed is actually a pose prop from Come Soon. The Nice Dreams Pose and all it's props is a Come Soon Release for the soon to be closing round of Suicide Dollz - you have a couple of days left to check the event, but it changed on the 10th and you will have to wait until the pose is moved to the mainstore, if you don't hurry! 
Don't rush too fast, it's too hot and I don't want anyone to overheat, but yeah... Get a move on!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Argrace - Akane in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Collar: Kibitz - Collar Collection Gacha Item in Elsa Collar 
Tattoo: Identity - Night Crawler 
Dress: Kaithleen's - Negligee in Black 
Pose: Come Soon - Nice Dreams (Available until September 10th at Suicide Dollz

Pirate Dreams

Today is a day for simplicity... I know that people complain about Mondays being the hardest day of the week but I kinda disagree I think that Tuesdays are worse! I mean really, think about it, Monday is the start of the week but Tuesday is the second day in a row you have to get up, you cannot blame things on the start of the week and it's still a long way to go until the weekend!
It's time though for something simple but cute, because I am getting so crazy bleh at the moment that I need something easy hehe...
I'm running late with this look, I've had it stored ready for picture taking for a while but until fairly recently my blogging mojo seems to have abated somewhat! I'm slowly getting my groove back and I am finding it just in time to share this cute outfit before parts of it are removed from their events...
The part I'm referring to is this adorable top from Petite Mort, called Wrap Bikini Top - shown here in a melon colour - which is available until tomrrow at Tres Chic. The tops come in a range of jewel like colours, but I chose this awesome orangy tone, partly because of huge beaded necklace from aisling. It's a Tortuga Princess Necklace, hence why I'm now exploring a Piraty location - Temenos - and living my Pirate Dreams!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Henya in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Tattoo: [White Widow] - Chocolat in Black
Necklace: aisling - Tortuga Princess in Necklace RARE
Top: Petite Mort - Wrap Bikini Top in Melon (Available until September 10th at Tres Chic)
Shorts: Mon Cheri - Frayed Denim Hotpants in Dark Blue
Pose: Signature Pose - Sophie 5

Rocky Horror Rudh Show

I don't know if you're like me, and you may have realised this before, but I am a little bit addicted to Gachas and the events that contain them... The Arcade being the worst - or perhaps the best - of them. Each round I always find there is something I HAVE to have, and this current round is no different.
This time one of my all time favourite - and possibly one of the cheesiest cult movies - ever was represented with a collection in a Gacha that made me more than a little excited... People I was talking to were thinking it was a really weird collection, until I mentioned what it was and even then they did not seem all that excited... I on the other hand was in fits, I had to have it all, and once I had it, it was time to play dress-up...
The movie in question is one called "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" - a movie that earnt itself a cult like following due to the crazy antics of the very memorable characters and a cheesy cool soundtrack. Trust me, if you've ever danced the "Time Warp" you know of this movie LOL... Now OK I am on a ramble and I am so excited, all because of The Arcade release from random.Matter. The release is the Frankenstein Place Gacha Collection, and includes awesome pieces such as the special lab levers, the birthing chamber of Rocky and even a rug that will guide you through the Time Warp Dance steps... I was SOOOOO Excited by this release - so thank you to the minds behind random.Matter - and I've not GOT to find a place in my house for a permanent lab layout hehe...
While I decorate though I put myself together a Rudhish outfit in a "Columbia" Style... A dress from sYs at the last round of Collabor88 and a pair of cute ankle boots from lassitude & ennui, along with some of the accessories from the random.Matter set! It was PERFECT!
Now if everyone would like to line up with me... It's just a Jump to the LEFT!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Such in Hud 2
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Tattoo: Identity - Night Crawler
Dress: [sYs] - TRIANON Dress in Royal (Available until September 6th at Collabor88)

Horror Movie Nights

Is it weird that right now I am already beginning to get excited that Halloween is coming... It's still a month to go but I'm so excited that from this point on I will be getting my butt into gear and starting to get myself into the Holiday Spirit. 
Starting with some horror movies! I'm not very good with Horror Movies, I tend to over think and it get's into my head and makes it seem worse than the movies may well do for other people. HellBone is a horror movie fanatic and he knows them all like the back of his hand... Me, I tend to hide behind the cushions and only look out when I know that the bad things have passed. 
Yet today, on my lazy Sunday I am going to be brave, curl up in my tree house and watch "Last Arcade"! 
My Slumber Party style set up is a brand new Gacha release from one of my favourite stores... Lost Junction. Many of the props that you see here - such as the sleeping bag, pillows, videos and pizza - are available in the Slumber Party Gacha Machine at the latest round of The Arcade. The chips are also available in this event, but to get them you need to play the Chipsters Gacha Machine - different machine filled by the same creator! Yet my favourite item in this bumper release has to be the TVs... These are the machines rares, but they are so worth trying to get your hands on. Each TV - and there are three versions Horror, Kawaii and Sci-Fi - comes complete with 6 different viewing options including 4 hand drawn artworks by Lost Junction's Designer - Tala Laval! As always I get excited by things that are available at The Arcade, but these TVs are definitely one of my favourite items from the event this round! They clearly show that a lot of thought, time and effort have gone into making them! .
While on the subject of The Arcade, another designer really caught my attention this round too - Intrigue Co, has always made some adorable plushies but the Frightful Friends Gacha Items were things I couldn't leave behind...
Right now I just hope no one appears to scare the beejezus out of me... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: yumyum - 81 in Red 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: erratic - janelle Crop Top in Pretty as Fuck 
Pants: erratic - cameron Jersey Briefs in Colorpack 2 
Pose: Signature Pose - Just love me

She's a Lady...

I'm hiding in a dreamlike state, but I'm not sure if that is just because I'm tired OR because I feel like being a bit of a dreamer... So much has been happening and I have lots to play with, things I've bought and things I've been given, but I just haven't had the mojo to blog anything for the last few days...
Blogging and taking the pictures to blog has always been an escape, a happy place, yet I just cannot seem to get my head in the game. It's silly though, and I am going to pick myself up, dust myself off and kick my own butt a little to make myself do it - I know it's best for me right now, a little escape to play with my hoard, and I do have some VERY cute things to share with you! 
This is one of those very cute looks that I put together and I thought "why not share it with you, it's what I've always done so get off your lazy butt and do it"... My pep talk LOL, works to a point and you have to keep reminding yourself of it... 
As soon as I saw the outfit, by Moon Elixir at the latest and soon to close round of Whimsical, I NEEDED to have it. There was one issue and it was kinda silly because I had NO IDEA what colour I wanted and what combination I had to own - in the end I went with something classic and simple, black on white! Wouldn't it be so much easier if everything was black and white! 
To complete the look I needed something a little quirky - and found the perfect accessory in the form of this huge white hat in the Magika Hair Darkness Falls, which gave me that feeling of being a lady... The perfect location for my picture came to mind, The Outer Garden, if you don't know it you should check it out then perhaps you will realise why. 
Working on this has made things seem to be a little easier, I hope that perhaps maybe I will be able to do more... I need to do more... I just wish everything was so simple in black and white! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Darkness Falls in 02 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Outfit: Moon Elixir - Wicked (Items Sold Seperately) (Available until September 8th at Whimsical
Boots: #EMPIRE - Freesia 
Pose: Signature Pose - Not this time
