It all starts with a smile.

Good morning!
 
I decided to leave the safety of my platform yesterday and explore a SIM called It All Starts With A Smile. Sounded like my kinda place! 

It was.
I took a bunch of photos here. There were so many nooks and crannies that I couldn't decide on where to pose.   So if you love taking photos in a beautiful SIM, head over and check it out  
Here - 

Also showing off a new Main store release by Blueberry.  This skirt!
I was sooo excited to see the plaid as I adore anything with this pattern!!!
It paired perfectly with my fri.day shoe/socks & Barberyumyum hair. And yes the top is by Blueberry as well! Check the credits below for all the details.
 
****Please Note ****
Some of these items are located at Events right now. 
If you see a second Hyperlinked name in the credit line.
( BOLD LETTERING Different color) like this..

Meet Morgana.


Yesterday was quite interesting for me in SL.
I'm totally going to tell you about it.

I was asked by a Facebook friend to join her in some photos.
 ( OK, let's do this!) 
** Both these photos were done by her. I had to screen shot them as I couldn't snag them from Flickr but the links to the originals are below each photo.**

I have seen Morgana around the grid for years now.
 She has always been friendly and helpful but I never really knew her, knew her. 

Until Facebook.
The posts  this girl makes often leave me with my mouth hanging open, laughing or just shaking my head at what she can get herself into. I honestly don't think there is ever a dull moment in her life.

She's actually pretty amazing.

I learned a LOT about her that morning as she shot these photos. 
I won't go into details here but WOW girl, you have life by the balls. Don't let go, like ever. 

Your upbeat attitude made me think of my own struggles and how I can maybe change my own attitude towards them.

I woke up to a surprise.
She surprised me with a blog post this morning.
I figured the photos she did were a Flickr only kind of deal but no. She is a busy bee.

 Check out her post here -  https://sohawtsl.wordpress.com/2016/01/29/friends-by-design/
This is here Flickr - https://www.flickr.com/photos/morganahilra/

Morgana usually does V blogs. Video blogging. It's a very cool idea. 
Check her out. Here - https://www.youtube.com/user/mhilrasl

And Morgana, Thank you. Spending the morning with you was just the pick me up I needed. ♥

Uber Help Needed And Well MY Shopping Spree Over There

Good morning!

So Savvy is having a difficult time choosing a new mesh head. She needs our help!
 Head over to her blog here https://lilmonstersmadness.wordpress.com/  To weigh in on the subject.  Everyone has an opinion, share yours!

Other than that , no personal stuffs from me today.
 just some photos and credits.
 ( You're welcome!)

  1. Mudskin has released a whole new line of skin tones!  I was so worried as I hadn't seen a release from them in a very long time! I got all excited and took one of my (emberized) over exposed photos of the second lightest tone.  Sorry, I can't help myself  but, soon I will photograph all of them in a basic windlight to give you a good idea of what's what OK?
  2. I finally got into Uber! I grabbed up a ton of Demos ( Have I mentioned you always need to demo?) Anyway I chose the Addams Jacket & Jeans + The Moon Hair as I loved the messy bun at the back. My Super cute pumps by fri.day are also available @ Uber. You have to try them!!! They have these add on socks and well, school girl anyone? LOVE!
That's it from me today.
 Hope you enjoy.
Don't forget to Demo, Demo, Demo!

Just Breathe

Good morning!
Today's post and photo is about breathing in the good s!@# and breathing out the bad s!@#.
I had a lot of upsets yesterday.  The major one being that I need to find a new sim to hang out at.

The one I loved turns out to be not as good a fit as I had originally thought. 
And well my friend has been banned so, I no longer feel welcome either.

Anyone have any leads for me?
 I used to adore Bliss ( Yes I know, Gross) 
But, the people going there were so diverse.
 I love a sim where people are made to feel included and welcomed. 
I prefer it to be an Adult Sim with lots of traffic and a diverse group of residents.

So if you frequent any of these places give me a shout in SL ( Ember Adored) or if you see me traveling through one, say hi!

That's all for today. Thanks for listening ♥

Let's Buy ALL The Things!

Hey lovely peoples.
Today I will refrain from boring you with my personal Second Life.
Instead I need to mention two a few things in particular. 
  1. This Top. I got it from Apple May Designs years ago. It is mesh but it is not made specifically for any mesh bodies. Guess what though ?  IT FITS MY MAITREYA! I am totally pumped about this as it is one of my most favorite tops ever.
  2. My Nail Polish. -{ZOZ}- has just released... OMEGA APPLIERS for her stunning polishes! You can find these over @ Cosmopolitan. So not only can you buy them specifically for Maitreya, Slink @ ZOZ's Mesh Nails you can also wear them on any other hand that is omega compatible! How wicked is this??? Yay, Thank you ZOZ!  Don't know what Omega is?  Why would you need it? Check out some FAQ's over on Daria's  all mesh website (Book mark, follow. This girl is in the know, ya know!) http://meshbodyaddicts.com/mesh-body-tutorials/troubleshooting-faqs-for-mesh-bodies/
  3. This Hair. I found it over @ The Seasons Story  and is made by Barberyumyum. Now as I've seen the ads all over I NEEDED IT.  So I bit the bullet and spent the L's.  No regrets. LOVE IT!
  4. These Shorts. I also saw an ad on Facebook for these.  It states all over the vendor to DEMO. So, I did. And guess what. They fit my Maitreya! Good job Paper Arrow.  You can also find them over  @ The Seasons Story.
 And you know folks,
 You really should DEMO EVERYTHING before you buy. 
This has been a public service announcement. 
 Like what you've read and see here? 
Check below for full credits.
 If The item is at an event take the second hyper link in the crediting cause that's where it will be ♥

Sometimes I Cry


Hey all! 

So yesterday  there was more dealings with the meaniehead at the sim I frequent. I ended up telling him that he was being abusive and being irresponsible with  his status as a Mod . Only after He told me this. 

" Well I have notice you are full of yourself and no one else is interested in your conversation least of all me and if you want to get into one to one conversation its called an IM."

So, let me get this straight. I am in a virtual 'Chat Room' But I am not allowed to speak? Get over your self! 
( For the record. the others involved in my convo were out of his chat range, DUH him.)

In the end after I explained being human and to remember that there are people with feelings behind the keys he apologized.
I will chat as much as I like as I am not hurting anyone!

But unfortunately,  me being me I became filled with self doubt. Maybe I do annoy everyone like he said.
Maybe others hate me just as much? 

I was so blue after all of this that I spent the rest of the day feeling like some sort of failure and not being very nice to be around.

So , to my loved ones. I am sorry. The pity party is wrapped up.
I just need to keep reminding myself that it's OK to be who I am. Not everyone will love me, that's not possible.

Long winded post as yes I do love to talk! 
Check the credits. 

I am so pleased with this photos and the comments I got on Flickr really lifted me up. You guys had no idea how much a failure I was feeling at the time ♥ You all rock.

The Experiment


Back story~
I played the CandyDoll Gacha at The Epiphany in hopes of getting the shoes there, (I didn't realize they were the rare)  Instead as well as many other items I got this body suit. I decided I had to wear it. I had so much invested already that it would be a shame not to.

The decision to experiment~
When wearing clothing like this I feel like I've walked out  of the house naked. I just feel too exposed almost. This is a me issue and I decided I wanted to try to almost desensitize myself to the vulnerable feeling of being half nude in public. 

The Experiment itself~
I went over to the sim I frequent as I feel comfy there. The people know me. Everything was good. I got some comments. People actually noticed this was not my normal thing but they were quite  approving and seemed interested when I told them why I decided to dress this way.  
So there was me feeling great! Until a man came along and started slinging insults at me. He wasn't insulting my clothing but just being an overall douche. I got very distressed and the first thing I wanted to do . You guessed it. Get dressed! 

The Results~
 I learned a long time back when visiting a RL nudist resort that people are almost more vulnerable when they don't have that extra layer of protection. I thought about that yesterday and even in a virtual world this still rings true. At least for me. 
One thing is for sure. I can't let others dictate my emotions. I will do this again with the next sexy cute lingerie I find.

Any of you deal with anything similar to this? 
I would love to hear your stories ! 
Thank you as always for reading.

Mean People Suck.

Morning everyone.

So I spend a lot of my time not in a busy Adult Sim, I really love it there but wow, it sure does take all types. 

I have been noticing more and more how downright cruel people can be to one another, there and elsewhere in SL.

I suppose it seems greater in numbers here as we have such easy access to others via groups and the sheer number of people we can come in contact with on a daily basis.

 Anyway, Mean people suck.
 If you are putting someone down just take a moment to think about  
  1. How it makes them feel. 
  2.  How bad it makes you look. 
Trust me, totally not cool.   
 You come on here and whittle away the hours of your life, why not do something positive with yourself?
Try being kind to just one person a day. 
I promise you it will not kill you.

 I am still trying hard to become my own role model in this as some days I spend rolling my eyes in every direction. No one is perfect but just keep swimming right.

 Two last things about this.
  1. If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing. 
  2. Kindness, sprinkle that shit everywhere!
  • You know what? I would love to hear one positive and one Negative experience you've had in SL.  
  • Also for the negative, thinking back. What do you think you could have done to turn the situation around? Anything?

 Ok, I still talk too much so I will keep the details short n sweet. Items in this post from Kustom9, Collabor88 & Mesh Body Addicts Event.
Please check the credits for all the details. Thank you so much for reading.
