Don't Believe Me

Don’t believe me when I say I’m OK, it’s probably not true! OK can mean many things and sometimes I just don’t want to face the fact that I’m not OK. I may be struggling with life, but it doesn’t mean I’ll never be better, it just means that at this moment in time I’m not happy. And it’s not the end of the world to not be happy for a time, it’s not like my life isn’t good, it is, it’s just that right now, I’m down. I will pick myself back up, I’ll smile again and enjoy the cool autumn air, the warm sun, and the beauty of life. But today, I have a little black cloud over me.

Sometimes I feel better just by saying that! But now, I’ll get to what I’m here for! First off, I have to apologize to Emms of [QE] Designs for not getting this posted earlier. I was full of good intentions but real life got in the way. The ‘Deema Halter Top, darks’ and ‘Dina Denim Mini Skirt, Skully’ were at an event that has now ended, but I’m sure you’ll find them at the main store as soon as possible. The new [QE] Designs main store is all ready for shoppers so go have a look around, I do know that today there’s a sale on different versions of this top and mini, so you’ll want to make sure to pick them up! Both are SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh body compatible, HUD driven, and the top has 15 colours with the top and strings colour change separately and the mini has 20 colours to choose from. I love the vibrant colours and the very nice detailing on these!!

I was playing the new round of PocketGacha and was incredibly lucky to get the ‘Catpuccino, Chocolate, RARE’ from Reign. For anyone who hasn’t heard about this incredibly easy event, check this out and find out more! It will completely change the way you think about a gacha event! So, Reign has released the ‘Cat Lady Started Kit’ for this, and all of the cute cat themed items are must haves! I LOVE chocolate and cappuccino, so I know I’ll be slurping the bottom of the cup in no time at all! Chocolate high, here I come!

This tousled hair is ‘Suzy’ from [monso].

It all starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I added the ‘Catpuccino, Chocolate, RARE’ beverage with it’s bento animation to a pose from the ‘The Paula Series’ set of poses from an lar [poses].

I’m at ‘Mother Road‘ for this picture. It’s a great place to hang out and take some pictures.

What's Your Name

I love seeing all the different names in Second Life! I started SL in January of 2012, which unfortunately, was after SL stopped using last names! So, like all the others after that, I’m just ‘resident’! I always type ‘resident’ with a small ‘r’, because I don’t consider it part of my name. I’m TinLiz Winterstorm…..and proud of it! I know TinLiz is an odd name! I’d like to say it was a well thought out name that I had in my mind for a long time. But, that’s not the way it is! When first joining Second Life, when it asked for username, all the ones I had in mind were used, and I didn’t want a number in my name. So, after oodles of tries I finally managed to find a name that is kind of like what I initially wanted, and without a number. After this many years, I finally realized that ‘TinLiz’ is actually a combination of two nicknames I was called when I was a kid. And once I realized that, I started to really like this name. I do prefer ‘Liz” but TinLiz works too! Or even ‘Tin’…I don’t mind that either. Once I put on a last name I liked, I then became who I am in Second Life. Which is pretty much the real me. I don’t have the mental energy to be fake or some kind of pretend person. I’m just me! So you can call me Tin, or you can call me TinLiz, or you can call me Liz…..but please don’t call me ‘resident’!

I’m a little confused with the Fluffy and Fierce Event! Not by what it is….but in how to pick one or the other! So, I’ve picked one of each to show you! Firstly, I have on the Sydney Dress from [QE]! Sidney is fierce and also really pretty! It’s HUD driven with eight colours for the skirt layers and four colours for the top, plus it has three areas to customize. It comes in five standard sizes plus fitted versions for the Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies. While you’re at the F & F Event grab the hints at each booth, then head to the main store to find your free gift!

Also, at the Fluffy and Fierce Event is Pimp My Sh!t with two fluffy and two fierce tattoos exclusive for the event. I’m wearing the Fluffy Tiger tattoo, in medium ink tone, which is perfectly detailed and compatible with the classic avatars, plus Omega and TMP mesh bodies!

Take a gander at these absolutely stunning pumps!! The Krista Stilettos from NX-Nardcotix come in sixteen colours and are compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet. They have beautiful detail, rich colours, and a unique style that stand out from the rest!

These nail appliers rock! There’s sixteen Pussycat Claws nail applier packs to choose from….and in each pack there’s one claw going to opposite direction, which goes on the thumb…a la kitty cat! Hello Dave always has something fun and exciting to paint your SLink or Omega compatible nails with!

The Miss CoCo hair, browns pack is from Vanity Hair and available at the current round of Hair O Logy.

The Mata Hari, high neck necklace from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery is a must have!

And as always I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya , and the high feet and elegant hands from SLink.

The poses are from the Marilyn Series from an lar [poses].

I made a trip to Hazardous for these pictures.

I’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling!

I’m really not sure where it went! Maybe it’s in the same place the lost socks go, in which forces a person to wear one white sock and one black sock when you only have two clean socks left! It could be where all the lost minds go!! I’ve lost mine a few times, but it always came back on it’s own without me having to go look for it!! I’ve witnessed some people ‘Lose IT!’…it isn’t pretty, but whatever they’ve lost seems to come back eventually! There’s much fuss of losing one’s virginity…maybe my lovin’ feeling is where everyone’s virginities are stored!! Anyway, I digress! So, I’m going to take a moment to raise a glass to everyone finding the one thing they’ve lost that made their world a better place!

And now….on to the outfit! I’ll begin with the Elle Dress from Pretty Things! It’s an exclusive to the current round of Designer Showcase and comes with a ton of colours options for the dress and belt via HUD! It’s compatible with classic avatars plus SLink, Belleza, TMP, and Maitreya mesh bodies!

The Scandinavia nail appliers are also an exclusive at Designer Showcase from DaneMarkZ. The applier has ten colours and are Omega and Maitreya compatible! I’m wearing them on my SLink casual hands!

The Feline Tattoo on my legs is a new release from Pimp My Sh!t and it’s a gooder!! It’s available at the current round of the Thrift Shop along with a bunch of other great new releases from PMS! It comes with three ink tones and is compatible with classic avatars, Omega compatible bodies and also the TMP mesh body!

I absolutely LOVE every new release from Veechi! This time around, I’m wearing one of the nine colour options from the Charade Shadows pack, which is available at the current round of Collabor88! It’s C88’s birthday round, so expect it being extra busy!. It’s compatible with the classic avatars plus the Catwa, Lelutka, Genesis Labs(seen here), and Logo mesh heads!

The hair is Lieke from the Exclusive Dip Dye pack from Mina Hair.

My shoes are the Revelry Heels in brown, from {Livalle}.

I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Maitreya, Lara mesh body, and the casual hands and mid feet from SLink.

The lovely pose is from The Layna Series of poses from an lar [poses] and also available at the current round of Collabor88!

I love this area at the Honeycomb sim, home of hive!! It’s really pretty for lots of nice photographs!

I Shall Sleep at Your Feet

I have to admit that this is a whole lot different for me! A new round of ROMP is underway(until April 29), and it’s right full of Elegant Kink, just like they promise! I’ve donned Faceless from [Constraint] for the ultimate in submissive styling! You can completely control who has access to it, so your roleplay stays safe for everyone!

Also at ROMP is the Lyx Bodysuit from DECOY! It comes in six colours and is fitted for the Maitreya Lara and SLink Hourglass mesh bodies! I love the gorgeous satiny texture of it!

I didn’t do a close up this time of my nails, but I’ll have one for you next post. They are the from the Passion Polish nail applier pack from -{ZOZ}-.

The Elyse skin in Powder tone is from TULI.
