2016, STICK IT!

Image
Finally it's New Year's Eve!

20016 seems to have done a number on so many, not just our Celebrities.

To all of you, I wish all the good things for 2017.

• This Hood by AZOURYinspired me to create this photo that I titled "Stick It."
As in 2016 can stick it. Ever see that commercial? It's also a nod to that.
So 2016, STICK IT!
Ember,

Thoughts on Vista's Bento Hands

Image
Hey, hey!

Well, I 'm a bit late to this Bento party but as I had to get with the program sometime so I figured I'd take you along for the ride.

OK.  First, the viewer. 

I needed to update to be able to see these Bento thingies properly.
If you want to use  OR see Bento items you will wanna update to.

FirestormBento Download page ( Choose your OS and GO!)
- http://www.firestormviewer.org/downloads/
SecondlifeBento viewer Download Page - https://secondlife.com/support/downloads/ Pretty sure that's it.



Right after Downloading the Viewer I ran to Vista to grab their Bento hands. 

It was the most logical choice for me as I love showing off my nails by my face.  I had also already purchased this amazing pose pack for the hands from Sweet Lovely Cute.  

I 💕 love 💕 the hands, I really do. 
The way they move, the included hand poses.  Just wow. They make me happy.

The only thing I do not like is the way the nails sit on the hands. 

They clip into the finger on a few of them and most polishes…

Merry Ho, Ho!

Merry Holidays Everyone!
I hope Santa was good to you in  both SL & RL. 
It was a quiet one for me in SL. No special someone to spend time with, not many friends left to do a gift exchange.  But RL was great!

Anyway, on with the stuff. I made quite a few photos for this as I suck so bad at full body shots and I wanted to get a lot in here.
Big shout out to one particular designer today.
Julie Hastings of White~Widow. Thank you for making this tattoo! I LOVE how it trails right up the finger!!!! Please make some sweet lil bows & Ribbons , pretty please ?? 💜

If Only

Hai everyone, 

I Grabbed this pretty lingerie by Violent Seduction @ Collabor88 the other day and had to share it with you all.
I paired it with this super cute socks from =Zenith= and the neatest hair by #Foxy @Hairology.
 I find it super neat as it comes with a styling HUD so it can be worn numerous ways. Totally perfect for when you wear something and maybe the hair pokes through the mesh of the top( You know what I mean eh? The struggle is real) Just tuck your hair back over your shoulder. No need to wear different hair. 
I may have been wearing this one for 3 days straight 😁

This Skin applier by Glam Affair & usually I wear very pale, like polar or Arctic but today I chose the Asian tone and man, I love the look. I'm especially loving on the brows and freckles on this skin. You can find it in a Gacha over @ Kustom9

My long mesh Nails are by {ZOZ} and fit Slink casual, Elegant & Elegant 1, Standard Avatar and the TMP
(If you wear that. 🙄)

The polish I applied is also {ZOZ} a…

Relax.

Hai everyone!
Took a quickie shot today, doing a lil experiment as I was super lagged and ended up having to take it in mid graphics.

Check this cutie hair, freckles & face!  I was staring at myself so figured why not take the photo :)
Luckily I got these sexy nails in the frame too. Hope you like.
Yes this post is a ramble but it's a friggen snow day & I have 4 VERY LOUD kids in the room with me.
Enjoy,
Ember 💜

A Bloggers Reflection.

Image
* I need to note  before I get onto my ramblings that if I feel or have felt any stress it is no ones fault but my own. This is just a catharsis of sorts. Feel free to chime in by leaving a comment. Remember, disagreeing is fine but please be respectful.*

 Basically these photos represent feeling tied down as a blogger & breaking free of the stress.
  It's kind of a crazy trip down the rabbit hole for so many.  You see a designer you LOVE has opened their applications and BAM, before you know it you've filled out that application, to hell with the requirements, we can handle anything right?
You want how many posts? Fine, done.You want me to rename my first born after you?  (Girls can be a Roman right?)  Hell yeah.  What I mean to say is I have done this. Just applied as I loved the brand.  For a while I'd roll along thinking life is grand. That is until my style would change and I'd find it more and more difficult to blog that same brand with the same amount of passio…

Just something pretty to show you today.

My RL best friend passed away yesterday, I will get back to my rambles another day.
Hug your loves close daily as you just never know.

Lost Myself

Image
Hey all.
So I've been thinking, Yes, yes I know that's never a good thing.

But yeah anyway.
My SLife. I spend ALL my time on my platform. I rarely leave unless to go to this or that event.
I have lost touch with most of my friends, save for one. Thanks Quiet lovely. And you know solitude has worked for me. 
It's so easy to stand alone here all day not worrying about ignoring someone if I have the urge to go vacuum or whatever. 
But now, wow. I'm kinda disappointed in myself. 
Someone pointed out to me today that I used to be the extrovert in the crowd. Now I am not even around to be anything. I used to feed off the attention I would gain by being the flirty clown in the crowd.

I am not sure how to even go about socializing here now, I mean I would like to start but then, I also have to do 3 jobs here.
HELP! How do I do this!
Ember.

Weekend Whimsy

Image
Hey, We made it to the weekend!!!
* Offers wine and cookies *

So I have had this post in draft for a few days now.  Things just keep cropping up for me in the blog world, yanno, free hairs and such 😛 
Also, yesterday all the kids were off school so me with my bright ideas decided to have a hair do day. 
Wash, cut , style on three giggly girls.  Colour on another.  Hot pink never looked so good :)
Then we discovered one had a case of head lice.  Ahhhhh.  It was pretty much mayhem, 6 kids packed into my hair room singing dancing .... 
Eh, do you really wanna hear my RL?  Probably not.

Look, pretty things.  Check the credits for all the SL   details!
Love Ember ♥
