Heart Removal

The month of Love is officially over as of the end of today, and it seems like a long wait now till the next "holiday" which is Easter. Although I'm still having a wonderful time visiting my parents at the moment, I can't resist doing something a little dark and macabre today, purely and simply to say goodbye to the month of Love LOL... I'm a bit twisted sometimes, aren't I? 
Since the month of Love is almost over, Rudh will no longer be needing her borrowed heart - what use is a borrowed heart to a Living Dead Doll anyway?! 
It was about time that she had it surgically removed! 
It's OK though, it's being preserved in a bottle - that you can see neatly resting by the removal tool on the table with her - thanks to the Mad Doctors at AsteroidBox. I do wish they hadn't left things in such a mess though, Rudh isn't the most angelic of sleepers and you never know when she's going to wake up... Maybe they should have strapped her down?! 
Is it weird that it seems more normal to see her dead and bloody like this, than wearing clothing?! The Lingerie Set from [I<3F] is so very cute, but now it's totally covered in blood, it's going to have a need for some serious washing! 
I guess Valentine's does have it's plus points, there is always something good that comes from the gory and depraved Anti-Valentines hehe... Roll on the Easter Bunny, I wonder what dead things will come from that LOL... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: *ARGRACE* - KOHAKU in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Blood: Izzie's - Face & Body Blood & Wounds 
Scar: antielle - Beauty Clinic in Chest Refill (No Longer Available!)
Lingerie: [I<3F] - Lingerie (Poll Item Feb) 
Pose: Signature Pose - I don't know me anymore 
Bottle & Tool: AsteroidBox - Removed Heart (Available until February 28th at A Vampire Heart
Table: [ContraptioN] - Embalming Stretcher 
Stool: Lewd - Tattoist Stool Decor (Part of a Set) 
Utensils: [ContraptioN] - Embalmer's Tools

Raining on the Bunny

Waking up this morning, it's RAINING! Luckily it's not so bad as the recent storm Doris, but it seems that for today at least it might be a bit shit weather wise in the UK, and I'm wondering if it would be a waste of a day to spend all my time reading a book?!
I do love the rain though, I love the way that it sounds and smells, and as long as I'm not going got be caught out in it, then it can rain and rain and rain as far as I'm concerned!!!
Before I came home though, I was not only sent an awesome item from one of the stores that I blog for but also discovered a really cool location... It's just got that perfect feel for the weather in RL today!! 
The location is a place called One Caress, and it's so pretty... Kinda melancholy as it's raining so much but definitely pretty and worth it for any one who likes taking pictures to make a visit to!
The item that I was sent to blog is great, OK it won't be much help in the rain, but the sim as well as being rainy has a rather post-apocalyptic feel which this item is perfect for... The item in question, is the new PSYCHO.Byts Bunny Gas Mask - worn here in Green but other colours are available too - that is available until March 3rd at Suicide Dollz... 
Of course, being a bunny the rest of my look was kept very cute, but I couldn't resist this awesome gas mask in such a destroyed location... 
I just hope now that the rain stops a little bit and I can do some of the things that I really want to do at home... 

What is she wearing;
Mask: PSYCHO.Byts - Bunny Gask Mask in Green (Available until March 3rd at Suicide Dollz
Hair: Truth - Sukie in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: [VALE KOER] - Crophoodie in Moss (Available until March 6th at Collabor88

Boots: N-Core - Rogue Boots in Black 
Pose: Image Essentials - Cute & Coy 3

Once Upon A Fairytale

Waking up on the second day of my trip back to visit my parents feels awesome, so I'm still going to remain in this fairytale world feeling for just a little longer. I think today that my mum and I may take a walk to the place that we always think of as a Narnia of sorts... Maybe I will share pictures of that somewhere, but if you know me even a little by now, you will know that I've got a love of all things fairytale - the dark and the light it doesn't really matter - magical tales have always been important to me. When I was a kid I was reading Narnia and Middle Earth Stories, whilst being a little Disney Obsessed... Still any fairytale is a good fairytale in my eyes, even the ones that Rudh makes up for herself... 
I've mentioned the location I'm sharing with you before now but I will repeat myself, go and check out Once Upon A Fairytale at Cape Juniper. It's so cute and has plenty of different fairytale lands to explore. 
Fairy Rudh has come out to play today - this is the original Rudh that used to walk through the magic of Second Life. Originally her story tells of a Shapeshifting mother that had daughters with differing fathers - one being a dragon prince and the other being a fae... It sounds complicated but trust me it wasn't at the time! 
The outfit that inspired this look was actually something that I found at the most recent round of We <3 RP in the Belle Epoque booth. They have created these Fawn Fae outfits which include dresses and wings for a very low price and they really got my Fae genes buzzing. 
On that note though, I am excited, I think it's time for a trip to Narnia with my mum... Shame I don't have to climb through a wardrobe to get there. 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Fool for Love in 02 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Ouftifit (Including Wings): Belle Epoque - Fawn in White (Available until February 28th at We <3 RP
Fairy Companion: !Ohmai - Dandelion Fairy
Pose: Image Essentials - Succubus 2 (Available until March 6th at PRETTY THING

Back in my Childhood Bedroom

Well I'm back home at last, after a very stormy trip over the North Sea, HellBone and I made it home to my family and it feels freaking great to be here... Yesterday was spent chillaxing - with a quick trip to the grocery store - and an early night, but my gosh it always feels great to wake up in my old bedroom, in my old bed... I have so many good memories, and my childhood is wrapped up in this place like a cosy little dream.
This year it's 20 years since the creation of one of the weirder children's TV programmes of my youth, and my sister and I spent a good few hours giggling at the things we used to love back then. The 90's were my childhood, being back in my old childhood room - as well as a certain event in SL - has made me smile as I sit here writing this post with my early morning cup of coffee!
I was very much the typical 90's pre-teen... In love with a boyband called Take That, and sharing a bedroom with my little sister, I was lucky enough to be given all of the popular toys that a 90's kid could want! YES I even had a Tellytubbie doll, a Furbie - like the gacha collectables from REIGN - and a Tamagotchi - like the gacha toys from Luas.
Jelly bracelets and Jelly Shoes were a massive thing in my childhood... It was so cool to be seen wearing them, and when I add some of my other favourite toys like Spirograph and Trolls, this picture as much as my RL bedroom makes me feel happy. I am so excited that SL had a 90s themed Rewind Event! 
I LOVEEEEEEEEE being home, it's going to be a great chance for me to unwind and get rid of some of my stress, but never fear I won't forget to share things here too...

I'm going HOME!!!

I'm going HOME, I'm going HOME, I'm going HOME!!!!!!!!
Finally the day has arrived that I am going to be going back to the UK to visit Mum and Dad, it seems like it has taken forever to get here but finally I'm going home for just over a week!! 
I've got lots to do, packing to finish, cleaning to do that kinda stuff but I'm going to take 10 minutes outta my time to drink a cup of coffee and get overly excited here! I've been a good little blogger and built up a backlog of posts that I can share while I'm away too - gives me something to do when the family are working and keeps my addiction fed - and now it's just a matter of one final check in SL then I won't be logging in for a week!! 
Rudh is leaving with me, she'd better hurry though because she has a train to catch... 
Rudh is rushing to get to the train before it departs without her.
Dressed in a cute outfit that seems perfect for being a tourist in London in the spring, wrapped in her APHORISM Jacket to keep warm, she grabbed her bag, phone and camera and I really hope she makes it to the train on time?! Hey, she's a pretty Chic Traveller though right - thanks to Image Essentials anyway?! 
Still, I will be here blogging over the next week, sharing all the pretty pictures that I made in advance lol, but you wont see me in world until Friday 4th, at least I hope you won't lol...

The Princesses Revenge!

I know that yesterday I talked about how simple things in fairy tales seem to be, but sometimes I guess I should admit that before all the happily ever after stuff things must be pretty crap... Not for the heroine, but I mean what must things be like for the bad guys that are left behind. For example, when Cinderella leaves with the Handsome Prince, what becomes of her ugly step sisters!?! I mean Cinders married a Prince, couldn't some kind of revenge be sort?! Branding, or having their eyes removed or something of that nature, which by the way appeals to my living dead dolly side quite a lot!
Yeah, maybe more than a little appealing to my dead doll side!! So much so that the dead doll me, decided to scar herself and act out what may have happened to one of the ugly step sisters... 
The poor wretch got all pretty for her sisters wedding to the Prince, with a special hair piece - the Antheia Halo Crown from PSYCHO.Byts available at the Coven until February 24th - trying to make an effort after being forgiven by her sister. 
Little was she to know that someone in the crowd would attack her, branding her as Evil and cutting up her face with a Lovesick scar of little hearts - from SongBird. I LOVE this wound by the way!! The Lovesick Wound is the scarring over my cheeks of little hearts and it's just SO CUTE!! Perfectly fits my love of Macabre and Cute all at the same time, so thank you Nimil LOL!!
Though because of this marking, our little anti-heroine thought she'd made a new friend, one of Cinder's friendly doves came to meet her... It didn't last long however, as the dove was a HEXtraordinary bird that was sent to carry out the Princesses Revenge...
Fairytales are not only Happy Ever Afters...

Hair Accessory: PSYCHO.Byts - Antheia Halo Crown (Available until February 24th at The Coven

Believe in Magic, and slip on a Shoe!

We all have the power to make different choices in life... Nothing is ever simple as it seems in the Disney Movies! 
For me I've always been someone who simply cannot take too many risks as I have a massive tendency to over-think everything. I can roll an idea around and around in my head, looking at it from every angle and more often than not, focusing on the negatives. 
I wish life was so simple as the fairytales... Sure sometimes things were tough but at the end it was all sparkles and sunshine. It seems in RL that when you start to rise, you always get knocked back down again at some stage. 
Wouldn't it be nice if life was so simple as Cinderella makes it out to be... When life is tough just believe in magic and slip on a shoe?!
Rudh tried it... Although slipping into a pair of gorgeous sparkly heels - like these Glitterati Heels from Reign - makes her feel good, there's no magical transformation, she's still Rudh that over-thinks and doesn't have a handsome prince... OK I still have HellBone and he's not bad on the eyes lol, but he's not really a Viking is he?! LOL... 
She's sitting in her chicken coop - complete with her new friendly Chicken Companion from Jian - in a regal JACKALOPE chair trying on shoes, dreaming that a sexy Viking will come and whisk her off her feet. Thinking about it now though, maybe if she's being kidnapped by a Viking she's better off in her dungarees and DMs. Might get a little muddy in Viking territory!
Still a girl can't help but wonder, when life is tough just believe in magic and slip on a shoe?!

Spice up your Live Nudes Bar

Woot, Monday Morning... I've had a very busy weekend - great but busy - and now I feel like I am ready to go back to bed after I've only just gotten out of it. I'm suffering something that is akin to a hangover but it's more like a gig weariness as this weekend HellBone and I went to see Avenged Sevenfold with Disturbed and then Anthrax... Maybe I'm getting too old for this?! LOL... 
Maybe that's why Geri left the Spice Girls?! 
Sorry my mind is wandering in all kinds of weird directions this morning, but I've been playing around with some of my new stuff from Rewind, and well... There's this dress... and it got me to thinking, what would Geri have done after leaving the Spice Girls?! 
Perhaps a show career of a different kind? Washed up and in a different kind of live performance?! Maybe at a place like The Rabbit Hole - an underground Strip Club?! 
I'm sure if that was to ever have happened, she'd have been able to make a fortune by dressing in her Ginger Spice outfit, the one that was so popular back in the 90's, was worn at the Brits and was in fact made using a tea towel! It's become so popular that for a 90's themed event, a well-known and loved designer such as Addams has designed, named and even included the Union Jack print version in their latest release for the event. 
The fall of Ginger Spice sees her taking a job in a Live Nudes Bar... What a way to Spice Up your Life?!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - JoJo in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Dress: Addams - Gery Spice Dress in N*42 (Available until February 28th at Rewind
Shoes: Reign - Scillia Heels

A walk round the Farm

Eeeeeeh, Oh my gosh, last night was a blast... Avenged Sevenfold weren't that great if I'm totally honest as you couldn't really hear the vocals over the music, but Disturbed!! Wow Disturbed were flippin' brilliant! However, I don't know where it came from but last night I woke up feeling like I was being stabbed in the head, a migraine from no where!! So this morning I plan on taking things very, very gently... Starting with a walk on the farm... 
All of that fresh air, that peace, the gentle hubbub of farm life, and some very cute animals can be found at the lovely location of Costa Blanco.
The outfit that she's wearing is just perfect for the way I feel right for how I feel right now. It's a gorgeous combination outfit that is available in mix-n-match pieces from Petite Mort at Tres Chic
I walked along, made a friend and hopefully soon my headache will ease! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - JoJo in Reds

Why walk when you can Segway?!

I've become a bit lazy... I don't feel like doing anything much when I'm at home, with the exception of sitting around making pictures when I'm not doing housework... So it doesn't really come as a surprise to me that, aside from taking pictures, I've become a little lazy in my SL too hehe... 
I was checking out some stuff in HellBone's newly made-over store and it's a big store, I thought to myself why walk when you can Segway?! 
Yes I seem to spend more of my time on two wheels than on foot now days, either on a bike, or now on my new Segway LOL... This is a pose prop from Image Essentials, which is available until February 28th at 2nd Level. The prop has multiple poses in it and can be colour changed to suit your mood... I stuck with the pink colour, pink is evil, and it fits my mood today... 
My overly large sweater also seems to match my mood... These Love & Hate Sweaters are available from SAKIDE at the new Love Interruption Fair from Depraved Nation. 
Time for a little close up too... 
I'm accessorising my look today in a casual, gamer geekish style, using a subtle "Player 1" Necklace from Lewd, and an awesome Gamers Heart set of Necklace and Headphones from PSYCHO.Byts
This Gamers Heart Set can be grabbed in one of two ways, if you get to the store and see a Gold Heart with XOXO emblazoned on it, and you type XOXO in nearby chat you could win this set! You have a chance to win every day until the event closes on Feburary 28th. If that doesn't work - or like me you're a little impatient, then you can pay 50L to the board and take the prize with you there and then! Simple right?!
Now to leave you on a high note, I'm running a little late as I'm going out tonight and need to get ready... Tonight I'm going to be at an awesome concert, lots of loud metal music, and not one but TWO kick butt bands to listen to... I'll tell you about the second tomorrow I'm sure but for tonight the first band... I leave you with some Avenged Sevenfold, and their song - which is my favourite - "Hail to the King!"

Headphones & Necklace: PSYCHO.Byts - Gamer's Heart Set XOXO

Whole Wheat Chapel

Something a little random and pretty today, I need to boost my mood and pretty but simple always makes me feel better... 
Winter is slowly beginning to slip away, and the mornings are getting lighter which is definitely a positive thing. Second to Autumn - of Fall as I could call it - Spring is definitely my favourite time of the year. Life seems to be waking up, the air is crisp and fresh, and people start to smile again after the drudgery of winter months gone by. I cannot really get myself to leave Winter yet though... It's just too pretty in SL to walk away entirely lol... 
This location is one of my favourite photo snapping spots in SL. The Whole Wheat team are not only pose and prop creators, they have an awesome collection of scenes that are ready made and set up for photography uses, and if I have any idea I will usually be able to find just the right location to snap the perfect shot here! 
The outfit that I'm wearing is something that I've been wearing on and off all winter, but maybe at the moment it's in it's last wearing for a good few months?! I loved this jacket since I bought at it at the Tannenbaum Fair over Christmas, but the Sophie Jacket from Salt & Pepper is only just getting an outing in public... So strange, but still it looks cute right!? Especially when it's worn with the almost made to go together with it, Kelda Boots from N-Core!
Oh oh oh I guess you could say, this is my Look-of-the-Day!!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Carmela in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Choker: [ abrasive ] - Loose Belt Choker in Aged Taupe

The Dragon Keeper and the Nebulim

This morning I had a long lay in after a night with a terrible headache and I feel refreshed and raring to go... Once I took some pain killers at 5 am though, I will admit that I had some very strange dreams as I finally got back to sleep! Dreams involving fantasy fairytale worlds, where things are never quite what they may seem. I'm not complaining, I LOVE that kind of dream and feel lucky that I was able to bring some of it to life thanks to some gorgeous new releases by brilliant SL designers, and a location that keeps me wanting to go back for more!
If you haven't been to Once Upon A Fairytale at Cape Juniper yet, you are missing out. There are lots of little nooks and crannies to explore, and they really get my fantasy imagination running wild. 
One of the little islands is Draconic in nature, and Dragons have always held a major part of me in SL. I was brought to SL because of Dragons, I was the Princess of a Dragon Matriarch family and even though we've all gone our separate ways now this feeling still holds a part of me! 
So it was here that the Paper Moon Nebulim was guided to when advice was needed from the Dragon Master. High on a mountain top, the being swathed in the magical Cloak of Nebulim stood, her wings catching the wind that blew around the ancient ruin while she conversed with the Dragon Master...
Who knows what was discussed, that is something for the firey minds of the dragons and their master, but for a Nebulim to have been spotted it must have been something of high importance! 

What is she wearing;
Robe: paper moon - Cloaks of Nebulim I (Available until February 28th at We <3 RP
Wings: lassitude & ennui - Seraphim Bento Wings Gacha in Black Dipped Rare (Available until February 28th at The Gacha Garden
Pose: Signature Pose - Worship, Pose Set 23

Cupid's Ad Board!

I guess today I should be saying, Happy Valentines Day... I'm not really feeling it though, so I guess I'll go with BAH HUMBUG! Today,. I'm anti-Valentine... A Dead Dolly with a purpose, to spend most of the day saying  BAH HUMBUG! If someone see's that little flying monster, SHOOT HIM! 
He already tried to get me this morning but hey what can I say, it was easy to resit the flying baby... 
I tried wearing a disguise so he'd think I'd already been shot! The Lovestruck Headband is a past group gift - but one that's still available I should add - from Remarkable Oblivion! To be a little cheekier, as a better disguise, I got a girlfriend of mine to leave lipstick marks on my cheek... But it was to no avail! 
I'd had a new tattoo done on my chest - ignore the tattoos on my arms if you want to, those are older but the Identity Sleeve Tattoos really do go well with my new Chest Piece! The Cupidity Tattoo - by Paperdoll's at BodyFy - seemed much more like a target for Cupid than a deterrent, so I will definitely be talking to my tattoo artist! 
I will say though that Cupid's Arrow had a rather weird affect on little Dead Doll Me... I felt an itchy sensation on my face, and had to check in the mirror but it seems like the scarring on my face was taking a romantic turn, not to mention the change to my eyes... Little Mofo was using my face as a Nightmare "Be Mine" advertising board!!! Dammit! 

What is she wearing;
Hair Accessory: Remarkable Oblivion - Lovestruck (Past Group Gift) 
Hair: #Foxy - Cattitude Hair in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2

Maybe these Shoes will help?!

Another week that is filled with uncertainty... Time for me to try and find piece of mind in other places, and for now at least I think Second Life is a good place for me to find that. At least that's what I am hoping for anyway - you never know, drama seems to have the ability to raise it's ugly head in horrible places. 
Also seeing as it's so close to Valentine's Day, I think it is time for me to stop being so cute and girlie and start being a bit of a bad girl... I'm going to pull on a sexy little outfit and strap on some very high heels. It's time for a girl to have some fun!!
A bed that's made to look rustic and cute, but with rings attached, it's just that little hint of naughtiness. The bed is one from Violetility called the Court of Love Bed, and it's available until February 28th at We <3 RP
In my cute little black, and barely there outfit, I needed to strap on some gorgeous and slightly kinky shoes from KOKOIA - which you too can pick up at the still running Fetish Fair until February 17th! 
If finding a Valentine didn't work for Cinderella, I wonder if it will work for the bad girl in me?! 

What is she wearing;

He's No Prince Charming!

Cinderella went to the Ball... She danced all night, and sparkled to light up the room, but it wasn't there that she found her Prince Charming. He's out there somewhere, but she didn't get lucky at the ball... 
I'm not sure that my own personal Prince Charming even exists... I'd imagine that very few Cello Playing, Trekking Across Middle Earth, Monster Hunting, Vikings are still - or have ever been outside the movies - in existence. Yet I have a second best option... HellBone is kinda Viking-esque, kinda?! He may not be the stuff of every girl's dreams, he's definitely not a romantic and acts like a kid most of the time - did I ever tell you he's a Doodieman?! - but he has his moments... 
Sometimes, not often but sometimes... 
It was nice to just get him to pose with me, it's something that never happens very often, but I wanted to share this adorable pose from Signature Poses with you. The Pose is called Cherish, and it's available as one of a collection from the Signature Pose Stand at the Love Interruption Fair hosted by Depraved Nation. 
He doesn't really like posing for his picture, and couple poses I have to be careful with... He's not keen on doing anything sexual or overly cuddly! I was so happy he'd pose in this pose for me! 
Oh and HEY, with my eyes shut, he could be a Viking!! Maybe if I can get him to stop talking, perhaps?!

What are they wearing;
Hair: Truth - HoneyAna in Reds (February Group Gift) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Dress: Tres Blah - Mexican Folk Shift in Cream (Available until March 6th at Collabor88

A Cinderella Enchantment

There's magic in the air... Another round of Enchantment opens it's fairytale doors today, and I'm very excited as per usual. This is definitely one of my favourite events and each and every time it is announced I get like an overly excited child... 
This time the Enchanted Team are this time telling the story of a magical transformation, a story of being plucked from obscurity while allowing hopes and dreams to become a reality, and proving that anyone could become a princess if they really wanted to... The fairytale this time is that of Cinderella!
I LOVE the story of Cinderella, but mostly - like normal - it's the Disney version that always going to make me smile most. 
The witching hour is far away, but Cinderella's Fairy God Mother just waved her magic wand... Quick peep through the door of Lady Tremaine's House and take a peep before she climbs into the pumpkin coach and rides off to the ball... 
Her dress is a special creation from Petite Mort for the event, and the "Ella" dress comes in a selection of colours with that Cinderella twist. My Cinderella look was enhanced by a magical tiara from Swallow. Wrapped in a soft warm cape, borrowed from the Fairy God Mother - bought at JACKALOPE - this princess isn't wearing glass slippers but has princess heels on all the same, and she's about to climb into her Carriage - an amazing pose prop from Fashiowl Poses ... 
Let's hope she meets a handsome prince in time for Valentine's Day!

The best kind of Valentine

As much as I am trying to ignore it, there is no getting past the fact that Valentine's Day is coming, and, unlike Halloween or Christmas, there is no chance that I am getting excited for it... I'm a Valentine's Scrooge... BAH HUMBUG lol! 
Valentine's seems to have become a little overrated, and I mean I'm not against the idea of celebrating love but I personally feel it should be something done every day, not one day a year with the purchase of cards and over-priced flowers. 
Although sometimes a card can be fun I guess... 
Especially if you are sharing an anti-Valentine!
Nantra made some brilliantly fun Valentines or Anti-Valentines poses for their Gacha machine at The Gacha Garden. The V-Cards Poses come in a variety of different poses, with some couple poses and solo props. This is pose 2, and it comes with a fan to make a girl look coy, but me being me I left the fan in the box and grabbed a girl's favourite Valentine instead... I'm sure I don't need to point out what that is - but a shout out to (epia) is needed anyway! 
It's my Anti-Valentine for the season, sure someone might enjoy getting a card like this but what's more is it may be the only one that I see this year, so I had to have fun with it!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Amuse Me in HUD 02
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Lipstick Mark: #adored - xxx lipstick kisses in #6 
Dress: Dead Dollz - Killer Queen in Black 
Riding Crop: elymode - Riding Crop 2015 in Black

Watching the Ducks

I'm awake too early this morning, it's officially my "day off"but due to recent circumstances it feels just like an ordinary day.... I didn't sleep much last night, there is a meeting being held at the office today which I am forcing myself to go to, but heck I feel terrible - sick to the pit of my stomach and butterflies dancing the conga!!! 
So I get up, after sleeping badly and find myself following the usual routine... Drinking Coffee, turning on the PC and giving myself a quiet "half hour" - that's what I tell myself but it's always more LOL - to take a picture and relax, if I can... 
Writing this took me a little longer than planned, I was side tracked and had to leave, but then now I am back I can settle down again with a cup of coffee and unwind. 
I grabbed my coffee and a laptop - which by the way is a new pose from Come Soon that is available at The Chapter Four in a gacha machine! - and found myself sitting in the garden - in SL because in RL it's freakin' snowing - and talking to the ducks. The Ducklings were taking their "First Swim", some were at least, the rest were too busy walking all over my new sleeping Pug Puppy! 
IT's so cute to watch them swimming or Puppy walking... Almost makes me forget that it's cold and bleh here in RL lol... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Verinne in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Outfit: Blueberry - Cutieberry Cardigan and Dress in Grey (Fatpack Colour)

The Beauty Of The Snow

It got very cold again in Holland yesterday - as it did in many parts of Europe - but this morning we wake up to a layer of thin, but still most definitely there, SNOW!
I don't mind snow on RL on days like today, when I don't need to leave the house but I get so scared of slipping over when it's icy that it becomes a bit of a problem if I ever have to leave the house in it... LOL thank goodness I don't like somewhere that's prone to snow and lots of it, right?!
In SL it's completely different... You cannot fall over unless you really want to LOL... Plus walking around wearing hardly anything isn't going to give you frostbitten bits!! 
Sometimes the snow scenes in SL even seem to have a magical effect, and I find myself dragged into the fairytale corners of my imagination! 
As with any good fairy story, It all starts with a Smile, and the donning of a magical crown of Thorns and Grace - flower hair accessories from LODE - on the head of a lost and lonely damsel... 
More thorns wrapped around her neck, silvering as they grew to form a perfect Nature Collar - from Tabou - while the snowflakes kissed her cheeks and eyelashes. 
I don't know the fairytale, I don't know where it ends but on this day, when the fresh snow covered the ground, as our maiden walked through the dappled light she felt a change in herself. A Bonding to the Goddess of Nature, a freezing of time and space... Not a sound was made as she drifted through the forest... Worshipping the beauty of the snow... 

What is she wearing;
Thorns: *LODE* - Head Accessory in Thorns and Grace Big Crown in Green (Available until February 15th at Shiny Shabby)

Shush Now, it's BENTO!

Today I want to do a review of sorts, something that I've been thinking about a lot as of late... BENTO! Everyone, everywhere seems to be hopping on the bento band wagon. As well as the expected Heads and Hands, everything now seems to be available in BENTO, just recently I've seen wings, jewellery and even poses, yet I wondered how does that affect me and my use of these things, since at the moment I am not Bento anything - except my SL Viewer I mean. I'm not able to afford a Head or Hands, and am waiting until just the right thing comes my way - remember how long it took me to finally get a mesh head and body?! - but how does the use of Bento in other things affect my personal use of these things?!! 
One of the stores I blog for is Image Essentials, and they have wholeheartedly jumped onto the Bento Train, so I was concerned I'd find myself in trouble for not blogging, but there are things that everyone should know...
I will admit that I was a little concerned, I couldn't carry on blogging for the store if I'd be unable to blog the Bento releases and therefore not meet the monthly quota, but once again the amazing owner of Image Essentials - Kay Weston - and her new but equally friendly and approachable Blogger Manager - Danni Ironfist - really helped to calm my worries. I over worry, I know but it's a bad habit of mine! 
I wanted to see how much the Bento would affect things... Basically for those of you that don't know, Bento is a new project release from Linden Labs, which has created more "bones" in the avatar structural make-up, meaning that movement is possible in ways that were never possible before. So when it comes to poses, the designers are able to use the Bento body parts to move an avatar in ways that before would have been very difficult to achieve. 
For example, Image Essentials have released - in conjunction with 1313 I should add - a range of poses called "Shush Now" for this year's Fetish Fair. As soon as I saw the poses I LOVED them... The kinky stuff always makes me a little happy, don't ask me to explain why lol, but there are two variations to this series, and it seems that where one didn't really work, the other was pretty close and usable! Let me share with you the Image Essentials Ad created for this pose...
As you can see, yes there is a difference in the way the hands look, the model is Bento Handed whereas I am not, and OK I have not created a fist with my Slink Casual Hands however there are Slink hands that could do that, yet I still feel that the position of my hands can be counted as a viable position and therefore a good use of the prop and pose... I happen to like the picture that I have created, I will admit - and this is nothing against Kay or the pose - that I think I prefer my upper hand being a little more relaxed looking than is shown in the ad! It's a personal preference, I was so happy that I could use the pose and make it look good! 
The other set of poses in this series, with the Ball Gag, I could not... 
But you see the hands play a much bigger key role in making the pose speak! 
I was happy to see that even without Bento things, the poses that Image Essentials are making can still be used. Yes it takes a little more tweakage sometimes, but my advice to anyone is don't be afraid to try it... You never know how long it will be until Bento is the norm, it's time for a Bento Adventure. I think for now - if they will have me - I'm going to be sticking around with Image Essentials and letting them drag me on that adventure, I just hope they bring the riding crop!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Ari in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Collar: GABRIEL - Slave Chain Necklace in Black - Silver 
Dress: Kaithleen's - Lace Mini Dress in Black (Available until February 12th at Cosmopolitan

When life is hard... Punch It!

OK I mentioned it a few times in passing but as it's Monday morning and I am supposed to be at work, I think now is the time to talk a bit... I'm not going to go into all the boring and gory details but there is a possibility that in the next few weeks I could be losing my job and although I've always complained about it, when you think it may not be there anymore it's a real shock to the system! 
With that having been said I know that I have a bit of a fight on my hands, to prove that I am able to adapt, to strive and to keep my chin up.
Hell made a suggestion that would help... 
He suggested a bit of a work out - so unlike him I know - but I don't really think he anticipated the Right Hook that came his way, and although I may say different later, accidentally hit him on the chin! I will say, he was right, it was fun to beat him up LOL... 
The pose I forced him into is actually one of the new Come Soon "Corner" Prop and Pose sets which has been released within the February Swag Bag. If you have no idea what the Swag Bag is, then in short it's like buying a mystery box that is, in this case, designed for Men. For more information you can check the Swag Bag Blog, or find the information point located at Come Soon's Mainstore! 
One punch and that sucker was out like a light, so I looked to my top's slogan - "Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about finding Pizza", and I guess that sums up my mood right now... Fighting, Waiting and Finding Pizza!

What are they wearing;
Hair: BESOM - ScreamQueen Hair in Red Heads
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: epoch - Aunna Tank in Pizza

The Month of Love - Second Life Calendar 2017

It's early February and as the days begin to get lighter for longer I am hoping that this year will be more successful than the last. So far things aren't looking so bright, but you never know there is plenty of time for it to all change right?
You may remember last month, I started a challenge called Second Life Calendar (Challenge) and so today I bring to you my February instalment of my Second Life Calendar!
February is a month that is dedicated to LOVE - although I personally feel love should be celebrated all year by anyone and everyone. Valentines hearts and romance seem to dominate the month, with Anti-Valentines being sent and shared too, and you're always left guessing will I or will I not be someone's sweetheart!
So let's have a few non-Valentine's facts about February, shall we? 
As the shortest month of the year, February in the Welsh language is often called "y mis bach", which translates to little month, although the Saxons referred to it as "Solmonath"- the month of mud or wet sand, which seems fairly appropriate - whilst in the 8th century it was referred to as the "month of cakes" due to all the sweet treats being offered to the Gods. The month of cakes sounds so much better than the more realistic Solmonath name I feel?! With an amethyst birthstone and the flower of the month being the violet, this purple month is the only one that could pass without a full moon!!! 
Now let's talk about this month's calendar picture, I've decided to share a larger version of the picture that I used so you can see things a bit more clearly!
The outfit is made up of older bits and pieces, things that I've had stashed away including this adorable Faux Fur Stole and Dress set from Foxes, which seemed to work perfectly with the simply gorgeous Anais Necklace from Kunglers, and seemed to be a great look for exploring the Winter Moon location. 
I just hope that it doesn't snow anymore, and hope that I can keep myself from getting too excited about March... March is one of the best months of the year!!! 

What is she wearing
Hair: Truth - Miriam in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Shawl: Foxes - Faux Fur Stole in Autumn Hues 
Necklace: (Kunglers) - Anais Necklace in Moss 
Dress: Foxes - Sweater Dress in Autumn Hues 
Pose: Signature Pose - Sensation, Pose Set 23
