You can't bring me down.

Hi, Dolls!
I know this look is not my norm these days but for those who've been with me a while will know,  PINK !
It's my favorite colour & yes I know more than half of you think I misspelled colour but I didn't. 
Canadian here!

Alright, alright. Cutesy photos but I am sure some of you are thinking, 
"What's with the pins, they don't match or 'fit' with Ember's look at all?" 
Well for any of you who were wondering that let me explain.

The pins represent pain. That's kinda obvious right? Being stabbed through like that.
 But pain with pretty, cutesy pink.
 Huh, wha?
πŸ’•  I get rambling here . So, if you have no time or patience for that,  please scroll to the photos & credits below & thanks for stopping by my friend. πŸ’•    

My RL self lives with chronic pain.

 I by the time I was 34 I had to have spinal surgery - I had blown out a few discs while moving a bed & I was unable to walk. 

Fast forward to today & I am living with chronic pain from degenerative disc disease, arthritis & another blown disc.
This doesn't really explain the photo though right?

Well chronic pain is one of those things. You can't see it but it's there. 
Pain, your constant companion.
 Even when you're all dressed up and putting on your brightest smile for everyone it is ALWAYS there along for the ride, much like these pins in this photo, aptly named Pin Cushion.

So no matter how normal , cute & healthy someone looks, please remember that chronic pain is a real thing and it can affect /consume their whole life!

Well, I did not intend to sic that all  up on you .
 No really, honest. It's the meds talking :D 

I hope you enjoy the photos today. I feel so cute & that, in turn causes me to feel happy in RL. 
So thank you to each and every designer in this post. You caused a patch of sunshine through my clouds πŸ’•   πŸ’›   πŸ’œ  πŸ’š

  Remember, I do use strong lighting so Always DEMO

Let's hear it for the underdogs!

Hi, Dolls!
The Underdog Event will be opening tomorrow and you will want to check this one out!
This event is different in the fact that a lot of the designers are not that well known yet.  Some in the event are and they are sponsoring!
 I think this is a great idea all around and hope it lasts cause everyone needs to be able to have that break out moment in SL.

For now, in my credits I have linked you to their website.
If I am able to be here tomorrow I will change it to the event link @ Noon SLT!

Ah well, hugs and squishes.

Falling leaves.

Hey Dolls!
Since it's Fall & I keep seeing everyone posting stunning fall shots all over Flickr I decided to do one of my own. 
This is my personal spin on it as I find it very hard on my graphics to do location shots. so I used a prop instead.
 These lovely floating leaves from Persefona worked perfectly for these shots and set off Mina's red hair just right. 

Hope you enjoy.
🌺Ember🌺

The new Maid.

Hi, Dolls!

I had a story made up for this but I like to keep on the feeds and all at least PG rated. (ha ha)
So yes, here is Ember the maid. 
She doesn't look like she is working very hard though does she?

🌟A  note on the items shown today. 
  • This dress is pretty cool looking in itself but you can also strip it off! Yes you read that correctly. You can strip yourself or your partner can remove your outfit. Hell, even a complete stranger can do so *Only if you choose* 
Below is the info I grabbed from the designer's note card that comes with the outfit.
To strip yourself: Just touch the Clothing!
  • To remove the whole dress -  touch the top part of the dress 
  • To remove the skirt only part of the dress - touch the lower dress 
  • To remove the panties - touch the front of back of the panties  
  • To remove the stockings  - touch the upper right leg of the stocking 
  • To remove the Heels - touch the right heel 
  • To remove the Headband - touch the bow 
  • To remove the Collar - touch anywhere on the collar
For someone else to remove the clothing: 

  • They just need to touch the piece of clothing they want to remove.  If you grant permission they will be able to remove and replace your lingerie. 
  • If you don't grant them permission they get a message in local smacking their hand away from your dress! 
  • There is more but I think you get the idea. Good times!
How cool is this now, really. Thanks Pink Pearl! 
 Hope you enjoy! 
🌺Ember🌺

Just because it fit me does not mean it will work for you. *OK, Pretty please, tell your friends that to demo is good!* This has been a public service announcement.πŸ’

A Visit to Limit8 & 14 Free Gifts to show you!

Hey, Dolls!
So, OMG! Freebie post!
 

It's Limit8's Birthday round and to be honest, with me living under my rock n all, I'd never heard of it before. 😒

So, yes. Besides me not keeping up on current events let me tell you what prompted this Freebie post.
 Well, DUH! Limit8 of course! 
Every booth ( except maybe 2)  has a free gift out for you.
Just copy & paste this link into your SL viewer to join the free group and off ya go!
 secondlife:///app/group/4e6b5082-a6df-0778-3711-84986f70b063/about

These are not the standard meh gifts you tend to see.
 These are the type of gifts that will make you want to visit the designers Main stores for more of their awesomeness!
 The quality & usability of everything is really that good!
Thank you Designers πŸ’‹

I have managed to stuff 14 of these gifts into this post. 
Some things like necklaces are overlapping & the Whatever sign over the pink wording on the backdrop. 
But whatever, we all get lost sometimes. See what I did there?

My skin, shape & hair in the close up is @ Ultra
I have no idea what happened in the wider shot. I think I put on the wrong head cause it looks like the starting skin for Catwa. Woopsie!
 Hope you enjoy this event as much as I did.
🌺 Ember 🌺
p.s. If you are a pose junkie like me there are so many amazing ones here. #Sorrynotsorry
