BAD Mangata 2.0   2_001

I always like doing a musical interlude, it lets me get by with little thought to a blog post and it gives me an excuse to get lost in youtube! Once I get going time becomes irrelevant, I just lost 15 minutes while writing this! The song I have for you today is something that maybe not many people have heard of and you’ll have to be a bit of a country music fan to like it. It’s called ‘Hair in My Eyes Like a Highland Steer‘ by Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans and I think it’s kind of fitting for this picture! Enjoy!

I just love this hair from [BAD HAIR DAY]! This is ‘Mangata’ and it’s super long bangs that cover half of my face is perfect for the mysterious look and the asymmetrical bob is one of my favourite styles. It’s smooth sleek look and how it perfectly frames the face is quite a dramatic look but it can still be versatile and accent lots of different styles of clothes. And remember the massive colour palette that [BAD] is known for, there’s something for everyone! You can’t get your hands on this one yet, though, it’s going to be exclusive to the autumn round of The Seasons Story which starts on October 10, so just a few days to wait. Don’t go forgetting about this before then, eh!! 😀 Drop in to the [BAD] main store to peruse their wonderful styles until then!

I wanted to really show my face and hair so I matched it with the ‘Off Shoulder Tight Top’ from Tetra. I’ve got the fatpack and with all the exclusive colours when buying the fat pack it’s well worth it.

The ‘Royal Autumn Forest Acorn’ necklace from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery is a real looker! I love it’s bold design and rich gold colour. It’s exclusive to the ForMax Event on now until October 10 in support of Maxwell Graf who has come upon some difficult times right now in real life. It comes in short and long versions and also included is both silver and gold acorn rings.

I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo 3.0’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Shadows Bliss’ set of poses from Bauhaus Movement and available now at The Liaison Collaborative.

I’m at the lovely Hazardous sim for this picture!

Let It Go

There are a few things in life that I’ve learned. Of course, things don’t always sink in the first time around, but the art of ‘letting it go’ is an important one for me. I went for a lot of years carrying around anger, hate, grief, and lots of other emotions that did nothing but drag me down. There came a time that I found out that a person can only keep so much inside. I hated a lot of people for what I believed they did to me and I held grudges and vowed to never forget. You know what? The only one that hurt was myself. The other person didn’t seem bothered by it, if they were even aware of how I felt at all. I learned that the most important thing I could do for myself is forgive. I don’t mean you have to phone someone up and say it to them. When I chose to forgive it wasn’t for them, it was for my inner peace. Once I’d forgiven the person for what they did, I could then let it go. It doesn’t make me a weak person, it makes me a happy one. I read once the question, ‘would you rather be right or happy?’ and it really hit home. I may be the one who was wronged, but to remain firm in knowing I was right did nothing but keep the anger or hurt festering inside me. I’ve worked on forgiving everyone who I feel have hurt me, and it’s rather freeing. Think of it as taking a balloon filled with helium and putting all of your pain and anger in it, then on a lovely fall day hold it up, close your eyes, and let it go!

I want to say how honoured I am to be chosen the Slipper Originals Blogger of the Month for August. Elle has a few wonderful ways of celebrating this milestone and one of them is naming one of her creations after the blogger. So, I’m really proud to show you the ‘Liz Bento Rings’ which are exclusive to the current round of Designer Circle! The set includes four rings per hand and the HUD for them is HUGE! Each hand can be customized separately as well as each ring on each finger. So if you want to mix your metals….go for it! If you want to take some of the set off, you can do that! And if you just want to wear one little pinkie ring, consider it done!! Thank you, Elle, your creations are what make blogging for you such a joy!

The ‘Coco Leather Jacket’ is an older release from LEGAL INSANITY but I think it’s completely timeless! There’s nothing more comfy than a leather jacket that’s been worn enough to feel like it’s giving a hug. The top can be worn with the jacket, or not, it’s up to you and it’s HUD driven with 12 colours to pick from plus two metals, and…….the sleeves of the jacket can be changed to fabric with 7 colours to customize. It comes in 7 colours and this is the brown version. You’ll find it at the LEGAL INSANITY main store.

The ‘Ribbon Collar’ is my choker of choice! It’s from !NFINITY and comes in three metals with each being HUD driven with 7 ribbon colours.

The ‘MAYU’ hair is my favourite breezy hairdo. It’s from Argrace.

My look 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’ve added one of the fifteen colours from the ‘Dark Metallic Eyeshadow’ HUD from Izzie’s.

This is the ‘Aloft’ pose from Del May. It’s expressive without being over done! Perfect in my opinion. 🙂

The pretty balloon(you’ll have to take my word that it’s a pretty balloon) is from the ‘Garden Party Set’ of the ‘Fairylight Balloons’ from +Half-Deer+.

I haven’t been to Hazardous for awhile so thought it was time to stop in and enjoy the view.

The Book I'll Never Write

Only after swirling down into oblivion, to finally hit the very bottom, did I realize how long and arduous the trip down was. I’d been hurtling through a wasteland called my life, longing to find happiness but not knowing what ‘happiness’ even looked like. How does one ‘find’ happiness? I thought if I was prettier, or thinner, or smarter then I’d find that little piece of heaven called happiness. Sure, I had times that I was very convincing in acting happy. I smiled and laughed and I could be the life of the party but it would take every once of mental energy I had to get through any kind of social setting. After, I’d go home, bury my face in a pillow and cry myself to sleep. How many nights did I do that….I have no idea….it was during those times that I knew deep down that, 1)I couldn’t go on like this, and 2)I knew I didn’t want to. Thankfully, I had no idea how much longer I’d be living in this inner hell. If I’d known, it would have been the end of me.

I’m sure if I was to write a book it would start something like that. It wouldn’t be a story to take on vacation for some reading while on the beach. No, my book would be one that you’d make a cup of tea and sit under a dim lamp reading long into the night. It would leave you unsettled but you’d want to find out what happens. At this point I’d like to know what happens next! 😀

Anyway, here’s all the info that’s fit to write! Starting with a new release from [BAD HAIR DAY]! YAY…I love new releases at the best of times and when it’s hair it’s extra exciting! So, [BAD] has released the ‘Krayr’ hair, it’s unisex and unrigged, which makes it perfect for me! If you haven’t checked out [BAD]’s colour palette I urge you to. It’s huge and each hair has two layers to colour independently which results in some fantastic combinations. Each colour pack has 24 textures, so once you start mixing and matching the layers theres a huge amount of options. As usual I couldn’t resist the Blacks and Whites pack.

The rest of me is a very good look at my back, so there’s not great detail, but you can see a bit of each item. My top is the Hara VNeck Top from Addams. I have the fatpack, which is HUGE and then went with the white, which goes with everything.

you can only see the back of the ‘Sequoia Necklace, short from EMPYREAN FORGE, unfortunately, but it’s part of a cute set of necklaces which is at the current round of FaMESHeD. The three part set is sold separately and includes long, medium, and short and they’re HUD driven with a nice colour selection.

I know…it’s only the waistband you can see of the ‘Jane Boyfriend’ Jeans from !APHORISM!. They’re also at FaMESHeD, they come in six regular and six worn textures, and the fatpack includes all twelve colours, optional belt, and a cuff option.

I’m using the ‘shaved long’ hair base from Dura Hair.

Today I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I found this pose among a large pose set from CARNIOLA Poses on Market Place. It’s from the ‘Autumn Model Set’ and it includes 14 poses plus their mirrors and also pose balls.

I made a visit to Hazardous for this picture. I haven’t been there in awhile and it was very calming to my soul! 😀

Throw Your Arms Around Me

I will come for you at night time
I will raise you from your sleep
I will kiss you in four places
As I go running along your street
I will squeeze the life out of you
You will make me laugh and make me cry
We will never forget it
You will make me call your name and I’ll shout it to the blue summer sky
We may never meet again
So shed your skin and lets get started
And you will throw your arms around me

I dreamed of you at night time
And I watched you in your sleep
I met you in high places
I touched your head and touched your feet
So if you disappear out of view
You know, I will never say goodbye
Though I try to forget it
You will make me call your name and I’ll shout it to the blue summer sky

We may never meet again
So shed your skin and lets get started
And you will throw your arms around me
Yeah, you will throw your arms around me

This song gives me goosebumps.

I hope you enjoyed the musical interlude, we will now get down to business.

First off, one of my favourite events is starting a new round tomorrow (July 18) and {MYNX} is there! The Limit8 event is one that I make sure to get to early, cuz if you don’t the limited items that each designer has released exclusively for it will be gone! {MYNX} has the “‘Aviator Sunglasses’ exclusive for the event, they’re available in gold,(seen here), silver, and rose gold. They’re big, they’re bold, and they’re beautiful.

U L T R A opened yesterday, and Le Poppycock has released the ‘Summer Meltdown’ festival poses! I’m using one from the “A” pack. These poses are all a lot of fun, you’ll be having a blast at the outdoor concerts and festivals this summer! There’s two packs to get, with each one containing nine poses plus a small amount of a controlled substance. Enjoy 😀

I can’t believe how fast July has gone! We’re already into the third week, and as the time passes the events come to a close, unfortunately. But, there’s still a couple days remaining for Summerfest’17, and C’est la vie has the ‘Febe Tankini’ exclusive to the event. Since I was planning on going to Hazardous for the photos, I figured I wouldn’t be swimming, so I’m just wearing the ‘tank’ part of the tankini. 🙂 I chose the ‘army’ version of this suit, with each colour option of the top, it comes with a bottom, which is HUD driven with an 8 colours selection. You have until July 20 to get it Sumerfest’17, but after that I would think it will be at the C’est la vie main store.

I know it’s a surprise for everyone that I didn’t pair a tank with a pair of shorts. I really wanted to, but I’ve done that way to many times already this summer, so I settled on a the ‘Dina Corduroy Mini Skirt’ from [QE] Designs. It’s a short, snug, and totally sexy mini perfect for dancing at the concert. It’s HUD driven with ten colours and fitted for the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies.

One of my favourite hair so far this summer is the ‘Hani’ hair from [monso]. This is from the blacks pack.

And again, I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at my second home for this picture, Hazardous.

Happiness is.....

….cancelled coffee plans! Nothing feels as freeing as having made plans to meet someone for coffee and when that day arrives they have to postpone it! It’s like my life opens up before me and I now have a whole afternoon to do with as I want! It’s not like I didn’t want to have coffee with this person, I actually always enjoy our time together, but the one thing I always yearn to do is be at home! And preferably with few people around! Hey…I’m an introvert….what can I say! 😀 A new day and time for coffee hasn’t been set yet, so there will be a different day that I’ll go for coffee with this friend, and that’s fine, but today I have the afternoon free and nothing planned, or should I say ‘nothing is my plan’!

I can’t believe the first week of July is already over and with that a new round of The Chapter Four is in full swing! Le Poppycock has the ‘Strawberry Sky’ A & B pose packs exclusive to TCF! Each pack contains six poses with lots of activity for a busy summer! This is the ‘Imagining Pink’ pose and I look like I could be singing ‘The hills are alive with the sound of music’, but I’m actually just enjoying my time at one of my favourite sims, Hazardous!

I’m wearing the ‘Mila’ hair from [KoKoLoReS] for this shot! It’s available until July 16 at the Hair Fair 2017. I love the angles and edginess of [KoKoLoReS] hair, it always stands out in a crowd!

I made a visit to the Addams main store to grab this new release! The ‘Mellon Long Sleeves Shirt’ does have long sleeves, but very little else! I love it! Addams is celebrating 3 years in business all during the month of July, so stop in a find the red balloons for incredible savings on fatpacks! Also from Addams, is the ‘Malena Denim Shorts, high rise’.

You can only see a bit of the ‘Feather Necklace’ from !nfinity here! You can get a better view of it in this previous blog post! It’s available now at the Men Only Monthly event.

I’m wearing the ‘Just Love’ group gift from Carol G. Tattoo Wear, you can just see a bit of it beside the necklace! There’s a fee to join the group, but there’s six very nice group gift tattoos out right now, and new ones regularly!

The rest of me is the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada! Along with the Lara mesh body, with bento hands, from Maitreya and the kitten feet from SLink.
