[BAD HAIR DAY]

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

And the reason for that is……what I’m looking for keeps changing! In the course of a lifetime there’s no way someone can finally find what they’re looking for and then stay right there. It’s so easy for life to become stagnant when a person thinks they’ve found exactly what they want, and then remain in one place for the rest of their life. It’s great to find what you’re looking for, but never give up on new things to find! If you’ve found the job you’ve always wanted…perfect….but you can’t just be happy with having it, you have to continue to find fulfillment in it. You’ve found the partner you’ve always dreamed of, that’s great too. But, the work in finding the right person is tiny compared to what it takes to keep the relationship strong. Now that you’re not alone, it becomes the two of you who still haven’t found what you’re looking for. But, if the goals and dreams are shared, it’s much more fun to enjoy the trip with someone. Over the course of life many goals and dreams are searched for, but it’s OK to change your goals, to decide that maybe what you wanted isn’t what you really need in your life. A person learns some hard lessons trying to find what they’re looking for, but no matter the outcome, never give up searching, because there’s always something worth finding.

I can’t believe it’s already December! The time is marching on at very rapid rate and it’s kind of scary. every day behind me is one less ahead of me, how’s that for a happy thought! But, we can’t stop it so we may as well accept it and enjoy each minute as it happens. One thing to get excited about with the end of one month and the beginning of another is all the events that start new, on the first of the month. FaMESHed is one such event and this month [BAD HAIR DAY] is in on the action! The ‘Bousni’ hair is a women’s only style with beautiful lines that really frame the face nicely. It’s swept back on the opposite ear that I’m showing, I’m always a sucker for the mysterious look! As you probably know, the [BAD] colour palette is huge and each hair has two layers to colour indepentently for lots of colour options. Each colour pack contains 24 textures, so when you add the two layers there’s an incomprehensible number of options with which to play with. You will find a colour combination that works for you! This festive round of FaMESHed runs until December 27.

I know real life is screaming ‘winter’ at me, but in Second Life I still can’t resist wearing clothing that’s a little short on coverage! The ‘Mellon Long Sleeved Shirt’ from Addams is a top that covers what needs to be, but still shows enough to be sexy! A bare midriff is always in style!

The ‘Batra and Leok’ tattoo from Isuka is simply gorgeous. The details are amazing and with 3 ink tones it looks great on any skin tone.

You can’t see much bare skin here, but it’s the beautiful ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada. It’s at the current round of APPLIQUÈ, right up until December 7, after that it will be at the mainstore. I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya, as always!

This is a men’s pose called ‘Avoid Me’ from Del May.

Just Relax............and Breathe

I’m decluttering my mind today, trying to settle down my thoughts and find a state of peace, that I can sustain. A friend gave me this link to listen to to help still my racing thoughts and learn to breathe deep, so for everyone who needs a bit of quiet time, please enjoy Enigma.

Today I’m featuring [BAD HAIR DAY] with the ‘Rahma’ hair which is available now at Men Only Monthly. As you can see it’s not really for men only, it’s for anyone who likes to be a little bit different! That’s what I love about [BAD] hair, it’s unique styling along with the huge colour palette make it so easy to make it your own. I’m always partial to the black and white mix, but all ten colour packs are gorgeous. The hair has two layers for extra customizing and comes with a mirror version to mix it up a bit. ‘Rahma’ comes in small and large sizes and is unrigged to make it fit just right! MOM runs until December 15.

I’m wearing the ‘Wedding Tux, black plain’ from Yasum here……it’s a little bit of a top, along with nice high waisted, straight leg pants for a really sleek look! These are exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body and available now at the Hipster Women’s Event.

The ‘Red Rose’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear is simply stunning! I wanted to really show off the vibrant red roses by wearing a monochrome outfit and it makes them really pop! It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies plus any Omega enabled mesh bodies.

I’m wearing the ‘Sultry Shadow’ from Veechi for a simple yet elegant eye make up. It’s available now at District 20. It’s compatible with the Catwa and Lelutka bento mesh heads and includes 9 colours. My whole look starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, which is available now at APPLIQUÈ. The rest of me is the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Ok, so this is really embarrassing, but I can’t for the life of me remember who this pose is from! I’m so sorry to whoever the maker is, it may come to me yet, I hope. If you see this and recognize it as your pose….please please let me know!

I made my first visit to the beautiful winter sim ‘North‘. It’s gorgeous, and aside from some guy using incredible pick up lines like, ‘Do you wear spandex all the time?’, it was a very pleasant outing!

The Mask

Who are we really? No one person shows their true self in it’s entirety to everyone. I know I don’t, and it’s not because I’m not who I appear to be, it’s just that I’m more comfortable to show certain parts of myself to certain people. One person may see me as bubbly and funny and another may see me as somber and introverted, I’m both of those. I guess if someone is in my life long enough they’ll probably see me more completely than some, but I still need to feel the comfort and acceptance to show all of what I am. I can be a great jokester at times and sometimes it’s from just being in a good mood, other times it’s to hide a part of me. You know the saying, ‘if I don’t laugh…I’ll cry’…yea…that’s me sometimes. It may be a mask we put on to hide behind……but if I went around showing exactly how I feel…..honestly, everyone would run for the hills! I’m up….I’m down…..I’m sideways……and it can change at any moment…but the one true thing is that regardless of what I show, it’s me.

This is a little different than my norm, isn’t it! Every now and then I like to completely shake up my look and escape my comfort zone. When I do this, it’s usually wearing items from R2 Fashion. When the new round of Collabor88 opens up I always look at what’s new from R2 and the ‘shikura’ outfit jumped out at me. Although a lot of it is see through, I still feel covered, so I can pose and not feel completely exposed. This outfit comes in three parts, the boots, bra and panties, and little bolero are all sold separately,or as a fatpack, and are exclusively for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. It comes in six colours, and in case you’re curious, the panties come in two parts so if you like the feeling of going commando, you can do that too!

I love the ‘Kef’ hair from [Bad Hair Day]! [BAD] has a huge colour palette with each hair having two layers to customize independently, and the pack also includes a mirrored version.

This isn’t an accurate depiction of the gorgeous ‘Raine’ skin from Avada, but take a trip to Appliquè when it opens on November 15 and see how pretty she is. ‘Raine’ is looking good on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Smoky Music’ set of poses from Le Poppycock!

Things That Go Bump In the Night

Ohhhh…there’s nothing scarier than waking up suddenly in the middle of the night after having heard something unidentifiable! I’ve been there…..many many times. I’ve always been kind of jumpy and I spent most of my early years listening to loud music…solely for the purpose of covering up any sound that I might hear. There was always tappings and clunks and the odd scuffle sound in the old house. I’d lay in bed, frozen and not breathing for fear of it happening again. And it sometimes did. Where I live now, there’s no sounds, except the furnace cutting in, the coyotes skulking out in the yard, or the ice maker in the fridge dropping cubes into the tray. There are times though that the dog wakes up for some reason, that I have no idea of, and she has a conniption and runs to the door. It’s times like that that I don’t know whether to go out and see or close the drapes and pretend there’s nothing out there. I do love my dog, she’s a real sweetie, but does anyone with pets in the house ever wonder why they stare at you? Mine does it all the time and I get paranoid and ask her, ‘What’s wrong, am I going to die?. You know they say dogs can sense these types of things…..well I’m still here so I guess that’s not it!

I’ve got some goodies here today for you! Starting with the incredible ‘Distressed Lipstick and Shadow’ from Veechi! I love this look…..it’s kind of how I look when I apply my make up in real life, only mine’s not this neat! These are sold separately and are available at N21. These are compatible with the Lelutka and Catwa mesh heads and I’d like to mention that they only work on the Catwa BENTO mesh heads! There’s a notecard included with the step by step instructions to wear them together on the Catwa head, which I read and reread a few times to get it right! If I can do it, anyone can!

The October round of Men Only Monthly is open for business and !NFINITY has the ‘MEMEMTO Necklace’ exclusive to the event. It comes in gold or silver, it’s scripted for easy resizing and the pendant is so easy to put your own image in! I’ve put in a pic of, who else, Eddie Vedder! I will hug this necklace in my sleep! 😀

BAD clown 13_001

I’m wearing the ‘KEF’ hair from [BAD HAIR DAY] here and it’s such a distinctive look! Step one to standing out in the crowd? Wear [BAD] hair…..there’s none like it. The colour palette is huge and each hair comes with a mirrored version for lots of options. And remember that all the hair comes with two layers to colour independently, so even more options!!

You can see I’m wearing rings in the large pic, but for a closer look refer to the close up. These are the ‘Suki Rings’ from Slipper Originals and they’re available at the current round of Designer Circle. They’re HUD driven with 10 metals to select from, each ring can be turned on/off, and there’s a set for both hands. These are fitted for the bento mesh hands from Maitreya and the SLink Dynamic hands.

The ‘Atomic Crop Top’ from Tres Blah was in a previous round of Luxe Box! I’ve never been disappointed in the items from Tres Blah there….but then again I would never expect to be.

These jeans are from September ’16 Luxe Box from Blueberry. They’re timeless!

The ‘USAGI Trainers’ are from [Vale Koer].

As usual I’m wearing the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada. Remember that it won’t be available until November…so keep watching for news on it’s release. I’m wearing it on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’ve fallen completely in love with poses from Del May. This is ‘Wall Melt, male’ and it’s really a very versatile pose…..I could just as easily be drunk, as scared, tired, and on the verge of giving up to the clown!

And speaking of the clown, it’s from the ‘Circus Rot’ gacha set from Remarkable Oblivion. The gacha is 100L$ per play, but each item is spectacular, like YoYo the clown, here!

I’m standing in the ‘Tales of Horror-Corridor’ from Hera and available at the October round of POCKETGACHA. I really love this easy way of playing gachas at a fair, all from the comfort of my own home. There’s 9 commons and one rare to play for.

Heyyyy.........My Face is Up Here

While checking out my stats and profile on flickr I found out which of my pictures is most popular. It’s solely rated on the number of faves it has, and I will admit it’s a pretty good one, but, it’s of my a**! yea…of all of my thousand and some pictures that I’ve put on flickr, it’s my a** that everyone wants to see! So, because of that, today I’ll show you my face! You remember my face……it has two eyes, a nose, two lips and a look that brings on the question, ‘what are you mad at?’! And I have to say, ‘It’s just my face!’. In Second Life I have a fairly pretty face that I think represents ‘me’ fairly well. I think it expresses who I am in real life and I look at Liz and see myself. They say the eyes are the window to the soul, but how does anyone see my soul when they only look at my a**? 😛 I’m sure I’ll need to put my back to the camera again and feature my backside, but until then, I guess you can check out my most popular picture on flickr, I’m starting to think it’s my best feature! 😀

Firstly, the ‘Felicity Palm Ring’ from Slipper Originals is a unique piece of jewellery that really stands out from the crowd. It’s a simple band with a gorgeous set of gems set into it to accent the back of the hand! They’re fitted for the Maitreya and SLink bento hands and there’s left and right versions included. Like all HUDs from SO, there’s a schwack of colour options which consists 14 gems and six metals. It’s available for the next few days at Designer Circle, and will then be at the Slipper Originals main store.

At first glance you may think that it’s just another picture of Liz, but if you look closely you may see some slight changes. I’ve been given a chance to preview an upcoming release of a new skin from Avada, and I couldn’t be happier! This is ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone and the detailing is incredible! These lips are begging to be kissed, and by someone that knows how! 😀 You won’t be able to get your own copy of this fab skin until November, but until then….just keep looking at me! Thanks so much, Stephanie for this exclusive preview!

I’m using a pose from the ‘Xion’ set of poses from Animosity! The set includes 6 poses and I want to remind everyone that they’re made for a male avatar so the ladies may have to make some adjustments to their shape for them to work properly. I love the diversity and uniqueness of poses from Animosity, they can really help get the creative juices flowing! The ‘Xion’ set is available at Men Only Monthly until October 15 and then watch for them at the Animosity main store, which is currently under construction.

Pimp My Sh!t is back and going strong in the October round of the Bodyfy event! I’m wearing the ‘Smokey Eyeshadow’ set that’s an exclusive to the event. It’s compatible with Catwa, Lelutka and Omega heads and also classic avatars. I love the smokey look for a dark and mysterious aura!

I new I’d be coming back to wear the ‘Amal’ hair from [BAD HAIR DAY]. It’s just that kind of hair style that I can put on knowing it looks good and I can explore Second Life with confidence! This colour is from the ‘browns’ pack and it’s the first look I’ve shown of all one colour, since I usually opt for a combination of naturals and colours. The [BAD] colour palette is huge and each hair has two layers that can be customized independently along with the inclusion of a mirrored version.

My eyes are one of the ten selections from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ set of eyes from Zombie Suicide.

You’re getting a glimpse of the strap of the ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ from Vale Koer and available at the current round of ~uber~, which runs until October 23.. It’s really worth seeing the whole thing….it’s so sexy! 😉

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya, bento hands included.
