Screaming deceiving and bleeding for you

https://sohawtsl.wordpress.com/2017/09/22/screaming-deceiving-and-bleeding-for-you/

Not tormented daily defeated by you

It’s been a long week, and what better way to end it but with some retail therapy.
I have a few things to share with you.. there is not much edit to these photos.. I used shadows in Second Life.. Phototools, so everyone has them.

I know it’s dark and dramatic. I did it this way for dramatic effect.

One thing I wanted to do was share this song with you.
Not only does it go with the photo well.. but, this verse always sticks out to me.

Screaming deceiving and bleeding for you

So go on and scream
Scream at me I’m so far away
I won’t be broken again
I’ve got to breathe I can’t keep going under

How can you see into my eyes like open doors….

https://sohawtsl.wordpress.com/2017/09/21/how-can-you-see-into-my-eyes-like-open-doors/

Devil in a Pink Dress

Hello ladies, and gents!

I decided to start this post off with a group gift from, Focus Poses.
The group is free to join, and I wanted to include a pose by them with their backdrop, since the backdrop doesn’t come with poses…
I just could not pass up using it.. I think it suits my vision perfectly.

What do you think? I am using the backdrop here with Bauhaus Movement’s Digital Alchemy #13 pose, that you can pick up at The Liaison Collaborative.

Visit me in the light

And for the sake of getting a lil more up close and personal, ya know.. so you can see the tattoo… Of course that is the reason.. here is another photo for you all!

Even devils are innocent

Yes, I used a couple filters on my photos this time but, since I am sharing the pose, backdrop and the outfit, I didn’t see a problem with it since, the upper photo shows off the lovely pink perfectly!

Any how, I am going to go and hang with my friend Matt, until he needs to log out and then it’s off to WoW to get, Tiseral his flying!

Wish me luck!

I’m hangin’ on the edge of time

https://sohawtsl.wordpress.com/2017/09/20/im-hangin-on-the-edge-of-time/

I'm hangin' on the edge of time

If you checked out the last time I featured Shiny Stuffs, you got to see my new obsession with their makeup huds, and this round at anyBody is no different!

They have a new one called, K-Pop!
It’s very cute, with all these options:

24 lipsticks/lipglosses
4 lash sets (black & white, upper & lower)
24 eye shadows
10 eye liners

Just to give you an idea of the combinations that you can come up with.. here are a few that I played around with.

I'm hangin' on the edge of time

Ok so.. maybe more than a few but, remember, your choices are not limited to these. Omg, you can make so many more.

Check out the hud. This is a screen grab I took.

I'm hangin' on the edge of time

One other thing I love about this hud, that many creators seem to leave off their huds would have to be, the ability to clear the layers, so you can start fresh, without looking for a million other huds!

Of course, you can always just head over to Catwa, and pick up the free gift on the counter, that offers different things like, a mini hud, that you can use to clear layers but honestly, you cannot deny the convenience of being able to just use the hud that you are currently using!

Now, I have a side topic I wanted to touch on. Don’t worry, I am not going to go off on a tangent, and waste your day!

There has been some comments about my style of blogging, and I wanted to speak up on that real quick.

My personal style of blogging is clean, little to no edit on photos, and showing people in a nice, clean windlight (Places – Paris 1) what the items look like, so that when they get them, they are not disappointed that they were not able to achieve the same look as I have in my photos.

Fashion Photography blogging is great. Their photos are beautiful, but they are also overly edited. The lighting is usually, not always, but usually modified using platforms like photoshop.

I am a Second Life Blogger (Fashion, Decor, Skins, etc) . Meaning, I am going to show you what you are purchasing. With the occasional edited photo, like the one at the top of this post.

I am happy to say that many people enjoy my style of blogging, but of course there are a few that don’t, and that is fine.

You can’t win them all.

Anyway, that is all I wanted to say.

I hope you all have a great day, and happy shopping!

I should’ve put it down

https://sohawtsl.wordpress.com/2017/09/19/i-shouldve-put-it-down/

Cause I knew that it just ain't right

As many of you know, some drama went down on a popular second life slam site this past Sunday, and I was one of the targets.

I was going to defend myself on my blog since my request to have one of the comments removed because it was rl related, was declined, and the comment I made was refused….. but…

Why? Why should I have to defend myself against people that know basically nothing about me?

Those people may hurt me.. but, they will never break me.
I have survived a hell of a lot worse than a bunch of keyboard warriors.

In the end.. I know myself. I know that I strive to be a good person, but I am only human, and I have flaws. If you, the reader, doesn’t like it… don’t read. Don’t watch my videos. Just go away.

And, if you do not like me.. well, follow the people above.^

The fact that you ARE reading this, tells me that you like my blog, photos, and videos.. and you are welcome here. Thank you for your support.

For the people that went to bat for me, thank you.
I am pretty sure I know who you were, and it means alot to me that my friends, and fans stick by me.

For those that would like to know what I am wearing above.. here is a non modified photo, and close ups.

Open my eyes yeah - it was only Just A Dream

Twenty four karat magic in the air

https://sohawtsl.wordpress.com/2017/09/18/twenty-four-karat-magic-in-the-air/

Twenty four karat magic in the air

Fly by blogging today.. If you follow my social media, the reason should be clear.. if not, then I guess it will just remain a mystery..

I will however add some lyrics since this post reminded me of this song.

Twenty four karat magic in the air

Tonight
I just want to take you higher
Throw your hands up in the sky
Let’s set this party off right

Twenty four karat magic in the air

Players, put yo’ pinky rings up to the moon
Girls, what y’all trying to do?
Twenty four karat magic in the air
Head to toe so player
Look out uh

Do you think time would pass me by?

https://sohawtsl.wordpress.com/2017/09/17/do-you-think-time-would-pass-me-by-2/

Making my way downtown walking fast

I have a bunch of songs running through my head today.. one of which is called,  A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton..

I thought it was a perfect match for this post.. if you click the photos, and check the titles, you will understand first why I chose those titles once you see the photos, and why I am obsessed with the song.

As many of you know, Pocket Gacha is up for round two, and there are many designers included in this round..

Like Reign, and Essences..

I played.. I am a sucker for Gachas.. From Reign, I got this pretty dress, and as we all know, we all need a little black dress!
I also won a couple clutches, the black one is shown here, and I also won a Cappuccino… but, I will save that for another post.

Faces pass and I'm home bound

Essences has 12 skins available!
Tones are 8 pale 02, 2 dark 01, rare med 01, and rare pale 01.
These are for the Catwa mesh heads!!!

Speaking of Catwa!
Catwa has begun updating their heads to version 3.0.
So far we have Catya (which is what I am wearing in this post), and Kimberly.
We are also waiting on a new mesh head!
Have a look at Catwa’s flickr preview here!

So much happening this month between the Arcade, and Pocket Gacha and the Gacha machines at Kustom9.. I am sure you can imagine what my poor inventory looks like.. hehe..

So, happy Sunday.. I hope you all have a great week and… here is all your info!

Snack Food Overdose

https://sohawtsl.wordpress.com/2017/09/15/snack-food-overdose/

Snack Food Overdose

Hi ladies and gents.

I wanted to do a quick post, before I log out for the real world.

No scarier words for an SL’er… “the real world.”.….

Yes darlings, I must go and deal with cleaning, and sorting, and hunting down lunch.. I am thinking some soup!

I chose to use this background because, I am severely craving donuts.. and you can not get better donuts, than this backdrop by Astralia!
I love all their backgrounds! This, and the books one I have blogged several times, are my favs for the pinks!
Pink is my favorite color….. Can you tell.. or… am I hiding it well?

hehe..

I also used a cute set from, Tentacio called Good Morning, and it is available at the Frou Frou event!
There are several different items available … check this link for a full gacha key.

The head I am wearing is from, Genesis Lab and is called Sofie.
I have been blogging it a couple times plus, I have a cute photo, up close with only a black and white filter, along with some burned edges to the frame. Gacha Key Link.

Hey kid, rock and roll, rock on

Pretty hot, right? YUP!

I will likely blog this head, and/or some of the extra items through out the event but for now, this is what I got for ya.

Please bare with me. As you all know by now, my father inlaw, the only father figure in RL I have had in 19 yrs, is sick.. and yesterday was a down fall for us.. He was rushed to the hospital and admitted.
If you are a personal friend of mine, then you know what happened to cause us to have to get him there… if not, well let’s just say, it wasn’t pretty…

It really sucks how life runs out on us all…

Isn’t it enough that our bodies sooner or later fail us, and we pass on?
We have to throw things like cancer, heart issues, diabetes, etc.. into the mix..
And then, if all this isn’t enough, we have morons around the world committing terrorist acts….
And mother nature turning on us… However, in MY opinion… we sorta deserve the nature turning on us since, a lot of the damage done to the planet is man made………….

I just wish I had a genie… so I could wish away all the pain, and un-natural loss in the world…, but I don’t have one.. and we will continue to lose ppl.. and the world will keep turning.

Sorry if I am depressing today.. I am just trying to deal with everything the best way I know how….

And that is by writing it out… because I find, if I try to keep it all inside and not talk, or write.. I get very depressed. More so than I am now, and I feel like I am going insane.

Do any of you ever feel like that?

Let me know down below…

For now, here is all your post info! xo

Well, I will figure this one out

https://sohawtsl.wordpress.com/2017/09/13/well-i-will-figure-this-one-out/

How did we get here

Have you ever had one of those moments when it’s like.. eureka!
When you have finally figured something out that you previously misunderstood?

Usually it will have days, and days after the original discussion, or thought.. and it’s like.. you finally feel like your understanding something and it’s like a celebration in your brain.. YAY I finally get it!

When I used to know you so well

Well, I have had one of these epiphanies.. and I have to tell you.. my thought was .. w t f bloggers?? Really?

I wrote this out on fb and plurk but, I decided to share it here too..
Some of you will totally understand what I am saying, some of you may get offended for the Ditz comment, and if that is you, it’s likely because you have used an excuse like the one that is included.
Blogging Advice Raw

If you need it, you can click here to see it in full size.

Now before you bloggers out there get all flustered, my notes here are for those of you out there that use excuses like the one included or, the “I just don’t have time to add urls”.. Or, another favorite of mine, “if people want it, I am sure they can use their brains and find it on their own.”…

I love blogging. I have been doing it a while, as you all know.
If I do not have time to tag, and link everything in my post, I do not blog.

Maybe it is just me.. I find for bloggers that receive items from designers, the MAJORITY of designers want you to tag, and add the url to the store or events.. so if you are receiving the items, why are you not tagging? Why are you not adding a url?

One other suggestion I have for bloggers, and again, I am not a professional however, I have been blogging on this blog for 7 yrs, so I must be doing something correct.. right? Anyway, my suggestion is.. if you are going to blog, blog everything in your post..
Hair, skin, eyes, pose, clothing, decor.. It saves people from trying to hunt you down and get the info from you.
Now people that are reading this, are likely asking themselves, what is wrong with asking the bloggers directly?
A lot actually.. most bloggers are either very busy, or maybe they are having a bad day, and you really do not want to get caught up in that!

So to save everyone the annoyance and stress, blog it all!!

I have some suggestions to people that are contacting designers, or bloggers out of the blue but, I will cover that at a later date… for now, I am going to continue getting my, Genesis post together for the eBento event.. I hope that no one takes offense to this post..

It seems that I am always offending people, no matter how confident I am that I didn’t say something wrong, it always appears that I have.

So, I practice what I preach, so here is all your info.. Event or store urls and all the other fun stuff! xo
