Super Useful Info

So, from time to time, I see people on Facebook and Flickr asking a pretty consistent set of questions. If I was establishing some sort of customer service or website, I suppose I’d say FAQs. Yeah, that’s actually pretty accurate, because that’s exactly what they are: frequently asked questions. First let me say, I do not believe in anyway that I’m truly providing new information to anyone that even reads my blog. However, I thought that since I keep seeing these same questions…and I just so happen to know some answers, that perhaps I could give one page to find them all quickly and simply. *laughs* You see, I’ve got a lot of information floating around in this crazy head of mine and even I can’t remember shit without asking. I could blame age or drugs, but less face it…we’re all human. So, I’m just gonna jump right in. You can click directly on the logos to go the pages listed.

Wondering what events are going on right now that you might not know about?
Go to Seraphim. That is also your goto page for some of the biggest and most popular monthly events like FaMESHed, UBER, Collabor88, Shiny Shabby, Kustom9, N21, Cosmo, ON9….you get the point. There are tons of events going on at all times. You’d actually be surprised at what you might find at some of the smaller, more obscure events. I’m not going to give examples of those. LOL. The bigger the event, the easier they are to find, but Seraphim covers a ton of stuff. Explore the site sometime. It might surprise you, plus its fun to see what the quotes at the top of the pages will change to. *grins*
So…. Seraphim …goto for shopping events.

Do you miss shopping at the mainstores? Sick of the lag or battle to get into a big event, but you really want to shop? Don’t care for the latest theme at your favorite event? Wish there was a way to know which stores are having sales, new group gifts, and/or new releases in the store? Go to MAINSTORE SL.  This is a page full of amazing finds and you’ll be amazed at the number of great items being released in the mainstores!
So….MAINSTORE SL for all things mainstore related.

Are you looking for bloggers for your store? Just want to check out some blogs? Looking for places to take pictures? Thinking about being a blogger, but you’re not sure. Well, everything you need to know about blogging, from stores that are looking to places to take pictures….even classes and seminars to help you learn more about blogging can be found on the Blogging & Vlogging Network site. There’s even a group inworld that you can join for free. This is a must join group if you’re already a blogger. Regardless of what you enjoy in SL, the BVN site will astound you with its wealth of information.
So….BVN for all things blogger related.

Do you love magazines? Do you like learning about the various designers, scriptors, creators, bloggers, etc? Curious about events and event owners, what goes on behind the scenes? Love looking at professional photos of various designs? Well, there are several magazines across the grid, but Eclipse is by far one of my personal favorites and its chock full of interesting articles, beautiful photos, and monthly features. It’s all about the latest styles for both men and women. This is a lifestyle magazine of what’s going on around the grid. Who knows you might just discover something new and exciting to do, as well. Unlike a regular paper magazine, Eclipse is online and there are links in the magazine that will take you directly to the store, blog, webpage, etc.
So….Eclipse Magazine for all the latest lifestyle info around the grid.

Still Learning

“I am still learning.” ~ Michelangelo

I borrowed this quote from a friend of mine’s profile. It is so profound in its simplicity and then when I realized who is credited for saying it, I was instantly humbled. When such a great artist can maintain his humility, I find it ironic when people boast of their greatness. I believe that if we ever stop learning, we stop living. I try to learn at least one new thing a day, even if its just some random useless piece of trivia. I want each day to present me with new information.

Hey There, Wanna Talk About Skin Fair?

So, I’m blogging for the Skin Fair put on by Pale Girl Productions. I have to admit, I’m a bit nervous, because as a rule I’ve not really blogged skins before. I will list the skin that I’m wearing, but aside from that….its not something I’ve really done. PGP specifically asked that we blog the skins a certain way and this, too, is something I don’t usually do. So this is my first attempt. I will say this, it doesn’t seem to matter which body or head you have, even if you’re still fully system (please update yourself!), there’s something for everyone at the Skin Fair….cosmetics, eyelashes, eyes, skins, shapes, heads, and even tattoos!

I wore my own shape, as I’m very particular about my shape and rarely ever buy them. My current shape was a compilation of ideas between my friend Sora and I. I’ve told her she should make shapes, but I’m not sure she really has the time. So, scroll on down and have a looksie at all the goodies I have to show you.♥

White Flag

I’m guessing by now that my regular readers have noticed that I’m trying very hard to get away from posting song links & copy/pasting lyrics. I’ve decided instead to explain why some songs are so special to me and why they’ve ended up on my personal soundtrack. So, now if you’re interested the video is embedded at the bottom of the post and if you right click on it, you can open that up in a new window.
Alright, so Dido’s White Flag….this song means so freaking much to me. It reminds me of a real life relationship I had many years ago with a guy we’ll call Bran. I fell in love with Dido about the same time I fell for him. Sadly, he didn’t quite love me the same way and my love for him was a tad bit unrequited. Though, you couldn’t convince any of our friends that we weren’t a couple. *laughs* Its a much longer story than I care to type out. However, with that said, I did have to finally let go…as I found something rather suspicious on his computer and I was never comfortable around him again. *sighs* At the time that I had such strong feelings for Bran, there’s simply nothing anyone could have said to make me give up, thus this song resonated with me.

Ride or Die

This month my blog celebrates it 2yr anniversary and I can’t thank YOU the readers enough for your support. It continues to amaze me that anyone takes the time to read my words, look at my pictures, or comment. I am so humbled by it all. More than anything I’m grateful to my Ride or Die girls or as I usually refer to them, my cunts.
A strange twist of fate, some rock music, and a barn brought us together in the most unexpected ways, but the formula works. Four of the five of us have been inseparable. Let me explain the mega-important role that each of these girls plays in our little Cunt Cult (that’s what we call ourself and Tracy even made us a logo! No, you can’t join. #sorrynotsorry) We are not the mean girls, but we’ve tried bringing people into our group in the past. It has always backfired and when the cunts turn on you, well, its not pretty.
We do not have a leader, but I suppose some would assume its Kess or me. No, but believe or not, Kess is often our sound of reason. The one that grounds us in reality, points out the reasons one of our latest and greatest ideas is a BAD idea. For those of you that know Kess, please stop laughing. She’s really far smarter than people give her credit for….no, wait, that’s Tracy. Everyone knows that Kess, while being a daft bint, is an amazing and incredible woman that sets a fairly good example for the rest of us. She tends to give us that kick in the ass when we need it. While she’s all of that and a bag of chips….we don’t listen to her for romantic advice, cuz when it comes to men….well, I think she’s finally got a good one, but good lord. She has gone through enough toads, that’s for sure. Its about high time she found some happiness.
Then there’s Tracy….and Rom. Rom is an honorary member, because he’s sorta of been along for the ride with us since the very beginning. Sadly, this post isn’t about Rom, but if you love some artistic photography, please check out Rom’s flickr. Now, back to Tracy, she’s the owner of GingerFish poses. I’m sure you’re all familiar with her store. If not, you should be. She was one of the first pose makes to do bento poses. Her prices are great and she’s an amazing individual. She’s probably the smartest of all the cunts, but you’d never know it to talk to her. *giggles* She’s a crazy ginger that eats the souls of children for breakfast. *grins*
Then there’s Grace! This girl is like my twin. We agree on almost everything, except her choice in men. Tally? Really? *bursts into giggles* Grace and I go back and forth picking at one another. She never judges me ever. No matter what stupid shit I do, she’s probably done the same or something close. If these cunts were angels and demons on my shoulder, Grace would definitely be wearing red…with cow print. I don’t even know how to explain Grace….she’s Irish…wait, North Ireland Irish (that seems to make a difference). Between her shitty internet service and her crazy accent, she can be difficult to understand on voice. However, I love this woman like no one’s business….she’s my twinkie♥There’s another cunt, Ava, but she’s off in the real world being all in love & pregnant. I love her, but I honestly didn’t get to know her that well before she left us for that other platform called Real Life. I love them more than words can express and I refuse to even think of my life without them. They all have Flickrs, so click their names where highlighted to check them out, if you’d like.
These are the first circle of my Ride or Die bitches. I have a 2nd circle and they are the MF’n bomb. Perhaps I’ll talk about them another time, but they are not bloggers and kinda prefer to keep their lives a bit more private.

Ride or Die
I’ll never let you down, I can’t let you down
Because when I couldn’t get my feet on the ground
You’d do anything to help me out
You never let me down
What goes around comes around
I’m just sitting here on my front porch singing
This one’s for my ride or die

Farewell, Decor

Since the day I started my blog, I had decided that I will blog whatever I want and I have stood by that for two years now. However, there comes a time in every blogger’s journey that they have to make some pretty big decisions about the direction of their blog. I want to do what truly makes me the happiest and while I absolutely adore home decor, I’ve found it to be extremely challenging as a blogger. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve loved every minute of it and you will still decor pieces from time to time in my blog.
For now, I’m focusing on fashion and I’d like to progress into close ups, perhaps accessories. Its not been a strong suit of mine, but its something I’d really like to work on. With that said, I can now say that I am a fashion blogger. I have a niche! *faints*
Sadly, this means letting go of some of my oldest and talented sponsors. There maybe some confusion along the way as some fashion designers do a bit of everything and I’ve got a couple of those on my list. So, like I said, there will still be decor, but it will most likely be something an avatar interacts with or part of the background. So, this is to be my final official home decor only post (the puppies don’t count.)
This is by far my last ever home decor post, but it is my last official as a Fancy Decor and unKindess blogger. *sigh* This is such a bittersweet moment. I’m excited about the future, but moving so far from my foundation is frightening.  It has truly been an honor to work with stores like Fancy Decor and unKindness, two of the mainstores featured here. Without fail, you will see their work in my photos in the future. ♥

The latest round of Uber is too fun. There’s a theme this month and its MOD. Oh my goodness, so many cute things. So, I’m sharing three with you today. We’ve got the Lamb hair that comes in two sizes, just in case you got a fat head. *giggles* The style hud offers three styles and each is as cute as the next. Then you’ve got the Bueno Grace top, I just don’t know how anyone could just settle on one. With just a peek of under boob, its sexy enough to make you feel sassy, but nothing is revealed, so you can wear it anywhere. Fortunately for me, I was able to match this up with the new Fina skirt from LYBRA that’s over at ULTRA. The asymmetrical hemline and zipper, made it too obvious to pair with the top. At least to me, the pose I’m using is actually in this Bird Nest Hideout from Consignment that I have set up on my patio. That Hideout was FaMESHed in February, so you’ll have to wait for it to find its way to the main store.

[Con.] Bird Nest Hideout (Feb FaMESHed)



I’m watching this documentary about a girl in Austria that was kidnapped by her father in 1984 and was held captive in the basement for 24 years. He raped and abused her. She gave birth to seven children and none of them had ever left the basement. Of course, upon discovery of all this, the media poured into this little town. His life and his entire family’s life is put under a microscope…exposing every skeleton in all of their closets. They discover that the father had a terrible childhood, but has become even more of a monster than his mother ever way.
This man was so determined in his plan that he essentially built and entire house underneath his real house. I remember as a kid, hearing the horror stories of my father’s childhood and thinking what a monster my grandmother was. Over the years, I grew to suspect that my own father was a serial killer. I’m sure it was just an overactive imagination, but until he dies it would not surprise me to find out that my father committed heinous crimes.
This story, though, is insane. He supposedly raped his daughter over 3000 times over the years. All of her children were delivered in the basement….alone. Her captive gave her a clean towel and a pair of scissors, nothing else. The craziest part of this all is that he had seven other children and a wife living the house above the captive apartment in the ground. They were all completely oblivious to what was going on right under their feet. There’s so much more to the story and if you’re interested the name of the show is Real Crime Chronicles on Amazon Prime. I’m just so saddened that this world is so mad and so many lives are left forever exposed as little more than a show for people like me to watch.
A good friend of mine recently said that he was beginning to lose all hope for humanity. He said this because of how people treat each other in SL, but the truth of the matter is….the entire world is mad and while I refuse to give up on humanity as a whole, I can certainly understand those that do.

Hell to Pay

So, when you have gorgeous friends and you’re a blogger, you tend to want to  show them off. For this post, my friend, Dusty was kind enough to sit pensively on this loveseat while I talked his ear off and shot pictures.  He’s quite the photographer himself, so click his name and check him out. Wishing you all a great weekend. ♥

Bartholomew The Silent Comedy

Oh my god please help me knee deep in the river trying to get clean
He says wash your hands get out the stains
But you best believe boy there’s hell to pay yeah you best believe boy there’s hell to pay
Come on

Oh my God please help me waist deep in the river can you hear my plea
He says son you come like a begger in the streets
You might make it boy but by the skin of your teeth
You might make it boy but by the skin of your teeth, sayin’

I rambled with the worst of them
Fell in love with a harlequin
Saw the darkest hearts of men
And I saw myself staring back again and I saw myself staring back again

Oh my God please help me neck deep in the river screaming for relief!
He says it’s mine to give but it’s yours to choose
You gonna sink or swim you gonna learn the truth no matter what you do your gonna learn the truth saying

Ate the bread that once was stones
Fell from a cliff never broke a bone
Bowed down to get the kings overthrown
Now I’m all alone and the fires grows and I’m all alone and the fires grows

Swing sweet charity take what’s left of me
A new beginning or is this the end
Swing sweet Seraphim take me back again or watch me make the messes of men

Best You Believe
But you best believe, boy, there’s hell to pay.
