Farewell 2015


Well friends it's been quite a year. Loads has happened to and for me in 2015.
I have had a few heartbreaks, one of my own doing and I think now is a good time for me to talk about about it.

 Savvy left Paperdolls this year.
I never did tell her how awesome she was, She posted loads here and due to my own pigheadedness she decided to go off on her own blogging adventure.

She makes beautiful photos, taking the time to set up a proper scene. Her new blog is stunning. You can check it out here - https://lilmonstersmadness.wordpress.com/

She took a lot from me and continues to do so as my partner in SL and best friend. She is the most loyal woman I have met and I am so proud she stuck with me on this blog as long as she did. I am blessed in many ways in my SL,but I think the biggest blessing is having her in my life. I don't share my feelings often so I know this sounds really corny but if she reads this she will know, ya know?

Another thing that's happened ot me,quite recently ( Since Christmas in fact) is I got a new computer.
I was so happy, I did some really crisp shots with it , you can find that post here - http://emberrandt.blogspot.ca/2015/12/i-feel-pretty.html and then it all went down hill. There was some error code I was getting called THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER. Basically Windows 10 ( it came installed with all this) and the AMD Graphics were fighting.
So I basically had a brand new lag crash rebooting constantly computer. I almost cried.

I returned the POS last night ad picked up a new (maybe a wee bit more expensive one) This time it has a nivida? card. Here's hoping my photos will be as good as I wish them. The ones below were taken on the last new PC. Although they are clear enough I just don't feel they were as good as they could have been, like not on par with the clarity of the shot I mentioned in the post above.


Alright, I will shut up now. Thanks for reading.
I hope your New Year is Shiny (Oh shiny *stares* ) and bright.

Oh one more thing. I am so so blesed to have anyone reading this blog.
 Thank you to those who have contacted me over the past year.
It really means so much to me.
Ember

Crimson Frost.

Good morning!

I hope Santa was good to you all! He sure was good to me. I got a new computer, (OK maybe I mentioned that one already) The photos here were taken last week with the old lap top but I am so excited for the clarity of my new photos.. Blah, blah yap, yap.

Right, in this post are some more items from F R O S T. and other goodies.
I took the photos at one of the LEA sims. They are so neat, you really must go see. Just punch LEA into your SL map and you'll find them.

That's it from me today. I am very distracted trying to figure this computer out , remembering passwords and all that jazz.

REIGN 50% OFF SALE

Hey everyone! Remember those super Sexy REIGN boots that are compatible with Some of Blueberry's new pants?

Well I had brought myself a pair when they first came out then I hemmed and hawed over buying more as 360L, although fair for the quality is a bit out of my price range.

Well anyway, this morning Savvy pointed me to the Reign FB page .
 I checked it out and OMG 50% OFF the whole store!!! December 26 & 27.
 So now these boots are 180 a pair!

Man oh man

Good morning! 
Happy Christmas Eve!

This post all started with one of my daily visits to the Kitty CatS SIM , you remember, to their free month long advent calendar?

Well one day, there was a gift from Nivaro. It was this beard stubble.
You still have time to go and grab all the Free Gifts)

 Now I normally would have no use for a beard but I decided to challenge myself and see if I could make a male avatar. I pieced him together with a shape and skin from Clef de Peau That is available @ F R O S T 

I have changed his face and head sliders a bit to work with this Bade hair from Hairology But other than that, I found the shape perfect for my needs.


I am glad I parked this photo or I would have wound up at one of those mesh stores shelling out for a body I don't really need,  The urge was so strong though because ,wow I have forgotten what the basic SL shape does when bent into poses. 
I topped him off with one of my tattoos from Queen oF Ink  and declared him ready to rock.

*Personal note: Ladies, if you are making over a man I would say the first thing you need to get him is Slink feet. (There is a reason you don't see mine in this photo !)

Right that's all from me today. DO NOT FORGET, Get over to Kitty CatS SIM now, while you remember. The gifts and generosity of all the designers involved is AMAZING! Oh and did I mention they are FREE?

 MERRY CHRISTMAS
Ember

Backspace

Good morning! 
I know this is a bit of a different post for me but I took the photo and really liked it so, thanks for looking?

The items I am wearing can mostly be found at this years F R O S T event, right down to my shape. The pants are super hot but I find I have some troubles photographing below the belt. ( Go figure.) But trust me, head over to the event and grab a demo. I promise you will adore them!

Anyway I really liked this photo, Oh I said that already? My bad.
Happy shopping!
Ember ♥

Weekend sales and gifts in Secondlife

Good morning! We made it to the weekend! 
I have some lovely things to show you today. Some free some discounted. 
All must haves for sure!

  1. I had a dress passed to me this morning by a designer called Culco. I recall seeing them on Flickr and drooling over their boots so I was quite surprised and flattered to be asked to blog this dress for them. This dress is quite interesting indeed. I was pleased to see they had a size especially for Maitreya in the box along with standard mesh, Belleza, Slink and Busty sizing. What is really interesting to me is the texturing on it. You all  must know by now what a texture fiend I am and this dress lived up to my standards :) Half solid, half see through meshing. Very risque but very pretty. This dress is available in Culco's main store @ 20% off for the 20 Twenty event. Find out more about this event here -  http://differentialevents.weebly.com/20twenty.html
  2. I also have this hair by Damselfly to show off. The style is called Katya and can be found at this round of Hairology. I was really impressed with the shape of this hairstyle. Great job Damselfly! Hairology is running until December 30th this round, check out their site here for more details -  http://hairologyevent.blogspot.com.es/
  3. If you haven't yet visited the KittyCatS SIM and hit up their advent calendar, DO IT! The skin I am wearing is free there by WoW Skins and also my Kunglers earrings! The generosity of the designers involved in this project just boggles my mind. And also a huge mega Thank You to Callie Cline who organizes this. ( Least I am pretty positive it is this lovely lady doing it )

OK DONE.(Whew)
 Go forth and shop!
Ember
