All day starin’ at the ceilin’ makin’ Friends with shadows on my wall All night hearing voices tellin’ me That I should get some sleep Because tomorrow might be good for somethin’ Hold on, feelin’ like I’m headed for a breakdown And I don’t know why But I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell I know, right now you can’t tell But stay a while and maybe then you’ll see A different side of me I’m not crazy, I’m just a little impaired I know, right now you don’t care But soon enough you’re gonna think of me And how I used to be, me I’m talkin’ to myself in public, dodging glances on the train And I know, I know they’ve all been talkin’ about me I can hear them whisper, and it makes me think There must be somethin’ wrong with me Out of all the hours thinkin’, somehow I’ve lost my mind
I am walking proof that blogging works. Just yesterday, I acquired some cute new purses, because I saw one of them on a blog post. I also discovered a new pose store. I mean, I dunno how new they are to the grid, but they’re new to me and that’s always exciting to me as a photographer. These pants I’m wearing were an item I saw at an event, but after I saw them in a blog post, I decided I had to have them. I have loved the backdrops from Paleto for a while, but after seeing one I didn’t have in a blog post…I went to their store. There I discovered that they had five backdrops on sale, all for less than L$100! I had to scoop them up! I can only hope that my blog inspires people to buy a few things from time to time as well.

Shopping in SL is clearly much different from shopping in RL, but I do my best to mix and match pieces from various brands to create a look that isn’t quite so cookie cutter. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with creating a look based on an entire outfit presented by the designer. Sometimes I really like going through different pieces much like I do in RL. Luckily, I can do this in SL without making quite the same mess. *laughs* You should’ve seen my bedroom back in the day. I mean, you wouldn’t see the floor. I was quite messy, but I knew where the clean clothes were vs the dirty clothes!
N-E-WAY! I fell in love with this new suede and lace skirt from Gaia, but I wasn’t ready for the adorable camisole top that matched it. Of course, I got it. I’m saving that for another look, ok? Lucky for me, Breathe just released these amazing suede boots that really helped me achieve a warm cozy outfit with the perfect pinch of pink!
For the scene, I did something I thought was cute. I took these posters I had from ionic and added my own textures. Well, technically they belong to Lucky Conundrum, as he created them for Burrow Company. I just thought it would be neat if the posters actually advertised something inworld. So, a shoutout and a big thank you to Lucky for allowing me to use his posters for my scene. ♥
This past weekend, I left my blogging haven aka my platform, and I went to two parties at Burrow Company! Yep, two!! I was in a great mood and for good reason. There were two 80s themed parties. Okay, the first one was a DJ set by my gorgeous, talented friend, Phen (who also happens to be a blogger). She played songs from 1980 and it was so much fun! The best part is that I was totally ready for Harlow’s big 80s party later that night, so I was able to rock my Madonna look at both parties. (If you clicked Madonna’s name there, you’ll see my inspiration.) I knew other people would do lots of bright colors, but that’s not really how I remember the 80s. So, I wanted to go for one of Madonna’s edgier looks.
I knew I had everything I needed in my inventory and I’m rather proud of how it turned out. I mean, its not an exact replica, but that’s not as fun as using a pic for inspiration, anyway. So, all the details are below and in honor of my friends, Harvey & Harlow Holiday, I’ve added a little song at the end. *grins*
Both parties were a blast and I can’t recommend a better place to hang out to chill, to explore, to take photos, but they also have some pretty epic events (big & small)…so while I’m giving this massive shoutout to Burrow Company, I want to make sure my readers know that there’s a huge Valentine’s Masquerade Ball. Click the link for details and I hope to see you there.♥

Brand new goods! That’s right, Stealthic has released a brand new hair at Anthem, clearly inspired by Anya Taylor-Joy‘s character, Beth Harmon, from the recent hit The Queen’s Gambit. I loved the story and highly recommend it to anyone looking for something to binge on Netflix. Naturally, Hunter does not disappoint with a fun new short hairstyle. I am already obsessed with Gambit.
Ahh, but Hunter isn’t the only one feeding my inner fashion junkie. Cynful has designed the Mile High Jumpsuit for the upcoming round of Collabor88 and it is fabulous! Now, anyone that reads me regularly knows that my favorite color for fashion is FATPACK! Plus, I’m a very lucky blogger that’s been on the Cynful team since….*thinks for a minute*…2016! Now, I just won’t say much if I don’t have good things to say, but this jumpsuit? OMG, I’m not going to want to stop talking about it nor will I want to take it off anytime soon. This is truly one of the sexiest things I’ve seen in the grid in quite a while. It’s not super revealing, but there are no curves hidden in this sexy number. The hud comes with an option for flat or high feet, too. It is a bit tricky finding the right shoes to fit under the perfectly flared, unzipped cut, but I am sure you all can find something. I’ve paired a sleek minimal pair of N-Core’s Elvira Heels with mine. I went with a taupe natural color, cuz let’s face it….in this outfit no one is looking at your shoes. Yet, you don’t want something sticking through the back of the shoe either, so chunky pumps are out!
I’ll put it this way. A male friend of mine sent a message to Cynthia of Cynful to thank her for this sexy jumpsuit on behalf of men across the grid. So, if nothing else, you’ll want to hit up Collabor88 for this jumpsuit ASAP.

I’ve always loved rooftop scenes in movies and tv shows. It always looks so cool with the way they make the roof of a building into something completely different. When I was growing up, my mother always had a lot of houseplants. She would struggle when we lived in apartments, because she wanted a yard where she could plant bushes and outdoor flowers. None of the buildings we ever lived in had a flat rooftop that my mom could use for gardening, but it was always something I wished she could have done. So, when I saw the Akina Garden Set from Serenity Style, I knew this was my chance to create a rooftop area that would be unlike anything else I’ve done. I had a lot of fun setting this all up to look like my avatar was getting photographed for her Instagram in her rooftop paradise. Who knows, maybe I’ll do more rooftop photography. I kinda dig it. *giggles* See what I did there? Yeah, I know, I’m punny. *sticks her tongue out*

You don’t know what you have till it’s gone Best I ever had to the worst, still makes me mad From moving way too fast to moving on Whispers of the past, like scars that ever last
And then you send me that shit Why’d you send me that message? Won’t you show some respect To that chick you tryna mess with Baby, don’t you remember Only took you ’bout a minute To go make a bad decision

One of the many brands that I’m blesssed to work for and with is Apple Blossom. Dulce36, or I know her, Reyhan is one of the most beautiful souls I’ve had the pleasure to work with on the grid. Not only is she incredibly talented, but she is still learning! I’ll admit that not all of her designs are suited to my personal taste, but one thing is for sure. The fit like a glove! I’m super excited about this Amarantha dress that she did for the Bonfire Bash edition of The Liaison Collaborative. It’s simple and plain, yet is just slightly hiked up on one side to give you a bit more sex appeal, plus the trim is incredibly detailed. I love dresses like this, because they provide the perfect opportunity to personalize the look by adding a few accessories. This is especially great for me, as I am an accessories fiend. I highly recommend you drop by the event before it closes on the 26th and try the demo. I’m sure you’ll fall in love.
