Thoughts & Dreams

Hi, Dolls!

Wow, weekend's flown by! I didn't end up doing much of anything yesterday, looking like it will be the same for today other than the dreaded laundry. OK maybe groceries to.

I was so hoping to hear from some of you on Friday. I do love & miss some give & take comments on this old blog but alas my comment box is empty.

That brings up a not so new thought. 

Should I  stop with my rambling? Just go to Flickr
I mean I would still post who made what & where but just on there exclusively. Thoughts? 

In the meantime, here are some more beautiful items from Enchantment, Powder Pack Catwa & pr!tty!
Cheers, Ember!




On the bright side, I can always become a Princess.

TGIF!

TGIF!

Hi, Dolls.
Happy Friday! you know I totally forgot what day it was again thank you Savvy for reminding me!

The weekends are getting full for me, much like my weekdays of late as I'm busy gutting the house I've live in for Gulp, 40 years!
We decided after years of unhappy condo life that it's time to move on and man we sure do have a lot of random stuff!👀

How's your weekend shaping up?
I'd love to hear some happy plans of yours before I begin again with my stuff 🙌

But for now, here's my blog post *ha, ha!* 
Take care, Ember


Get too close, I fly away.

Wanna make out?

Hi, Dolls!

I just love,love,loved this head-skin- shape combo ( YS&YS + LOGO ) so much that I had to show it off again. 
🌟I found basic omega body appliers for free @ Collabor88. YAY! So at least now I am matchy :)🌟

I paired it with a new hair by Vanity from Hairology and topped pun intended it off with this new top by TETRA. Also from Collabor88.

Anyways, hope you love it half as much as I do. 
Clone me so we can make out?
Kay, thanks, bye.
Ember 💋

Waiting her turn.

Take 5 | Items from Enchantment & more!

Hi, Dolls!

So I most likely did not do this outfit by [Aleutia] the justice it deserves, *I just kinda suck at clothing shots* but I really wanted to show you this as it's wicked cool!  Head down to Enchantment and try a demo, then you will be all like: "Aha, thanks Ember!" You're welcome :)

Also I need to give a special mention to the pose maker who's chair I've sat my ass upon.  Le Poppycock makes these chair poses @ this month's round of Collabor88  & they are fantastic! I know her talent well enough that I didn't even bother with the demo's *gasp*. I just brought both packs. Well worth the price!

As usual, all credits links and info below the photo.
Happy Shopping.
Ember

Take 5

Enchantment Is Open

Enchantment is back!
This round's theme is  One Thousand and One Nights!




This theme makes me so happy. All the jewels, silks & rich colours.

Remember Aladdin? @ Enchantment, you will find items reminiscent of this along with countless other gems as the designers have created items to fit a theme within a theme much like the stories in 1001 Nights.


So, ready to head over yet? 
The SIM may be full but while you wait, I've made 2 photos for you to check out & If you are still waiting you can check out  
 Enchantment's website. Here - http://enchantmentsl.com/

See through you

Waiting to emerge from the shadows

Hi, Dolls!

So, being able to blog The Mesh Body Addicts Fair has been such a blast for me. There are so many amazing items! I can't stop taking photos so sorry, not sorry :)

  • Today for the first time ever I got to try a LOGO bento mesh head. I have never tried this brand before and wow, I've been missing out!  
  • I was also fortunate to find a LOGO  Head applier pack by *YourSkin & YourShape* also sold @ the fair.  I used the eye applier, Head Applier & shape from this pack.
* Now, I only had the head applier so I had to get creative and try to match one of the skin tones from my Maitreya HUD. I think I did OK, but I am betting her skin applier is as lovely as this face *

Is it wrong that I kinda wanna kiss my own lips here?
Guess I need to get out more eh!

Thank you so much designers for your generosity & allowing us to blog your items. I hope you & well, everyone enjoy!
Kisses, Ember

I swear to be your bestie

This is a post that I collaborated on with Savvy.
 You remember Savvy right?  Yes, I miss her too.

This is her take on us and her photo is 100x better than the one I have, for real, my girl's got skills.
Find her post here - https://lilmonstersmadness.wordpress.com/2017/08/02/pinkie-promises/


Our online times have changed drastically but unlike other SL friendships I have had over my time here, this is one that never dissolves. 

No matter how mad we get with each other, we do the adult thing & Talk. That. Shit. Out!
We met years ago in a dark urban RP sim. I taught her how to find good quality products for the least amount of linden ( Hey when you start, you're generally poor yanno!)

We lost touch for a while then well, I basically adopted her and dragged her over to the club I hung out at. We've been tight ever since.

P.s. I had a book written here about our friendship but I didn't want to shock you into early graves or bore you to sleap with all these words so Here's my photo. 
*Muah* Ember.

P.s.s. I was in such a rush I forgot to add my fricken photo!

Mesh Body Addicts Fair Is Open!


Hi, Dolls!


The Mesh Body Addicts Fair Is Open!!!!
 

I have as promised shown you a ton of stuff already but be ready for much, much more as I love so much from this event!
  • Today I am showing off this very fun dark skin by LURE:. Great for if you RP a dark Fae or Demon!  
  • I couldn't resist using Izzie's Colour Explosion paint splatter all over myself as the dark skin created a perfect canvas for it to all stand out.  
  • Also worn today are my nails by SlackGirl. I am LOVING all her mesh nails, as I have been looking for mesh nails with little add on's for quite a while now. These come with a ring around one nail. So fun!  Also, her prices are always quite fair for what you get.   
  • I felt with the darkness of these photos that Ama's Eye see everything Rings would go well as one of the rings has a little colour change eye ball. The Maitreya size is experimental though so make sure you demo. (They fit me pretty well)


So that's it for today. Soon I will have news from Powder Pack & yes, more MBA Fair!

All details, LM's & Credits below the photos.

Kisses, Ember

Can you see me now?


Hi, Dolls!

As promised, here's another post with some items from the upcoming Mesh Body Addicts Fair.

Paired with Mina's hair from Uber & a gacha skin of Glam Affair's from the Epiphany.

  • Items from the fair include This top by +MuggleBorn+, with a very interesting HUD for those who RP as Futa here. If you don't know what that means you will just have to google mmkay? 
  • It paired well with these HUD driven panties by MOZ. With one click then can sit properly or look pulled down! Gotta love a fun script like that! 
  • But what I really want to mention to you is this amazing Tattoo from [Carol G]  It comes in White or Black, covers right down to the hands Make sure you turn on that glove layer ok? But the butterflies themselves, the shadowing is such that I have caught myself staring constantly. It looks like they are hovering over me in almost 3D!



Can you see me now?

Lovely Lilo.

Hey, Dolls!

Today I am showing off another beauty from Powder Pack Catwa Edition.

  •  The Shape, Skin & Brow shape are all made by Essences & All included in this Powder Pack. I am really pleased that this modifiable shape comes included as I have always admired their skins but with my own shape, I couldn't make it how I liked. So a BIG thank you for that Essences as well as adding in the body appliers!   *I didn't do much editing to this photo I sharpened it slightly, cropped added matte & fixed a little gap in my hair so that you can see how the skin truly looks.* 
  • The poses that I have been using lately are made by   *{( konpeitou )}* & they are FREE at the main store. I have no idea how long these will be here but FYI, these are some of my all time favourite poses like ever. Hurry over and find them on a small table when you land.


Lovely little Lilo

Sweet Adeline

 Hey Dolls!

So I just Looked through The Powder Pack Catwa box for July and found some very nifty stuff.  
I will be showing it off over the next few days just to make you drool and hate me cause you missed the pre order :P
Make sure you read the signs carefully before purchasing as they also have lots of past boxes for sale. Check all the contents of those boxes Here -  http://powderpacksl.com/previous-packs/


  •  Today I am featuring Pink Fuel. I choose this designer due to the fact that I read the word Monolid.  I had heard people discussing the word Monolid a few days ago and googled it. Basically it means eyelids with no crease.  So with that in mind; I tried it all on, found a perfect hair to pair with it from pr!tty and here we are.

Hope you enjoy, all links in credits below the photo.

Fading dreams

Hiya Dolls.
Today I'm gonna babble atcha a bit. A LOT. 

 So about 2 years ago I started up the website called Hair SL.
I love hair both in SL &RL & I am actually a licensed hairstylist by trade.  If only I had the patience to master a good cut here!  But, mesh is beyond me. 

See, all off track already!

So, Hair SL
I put a lot of thought into this site. What I wanted it to be, how I wanted it to operate & since the site's humble beginnings it's grown in leaps and bounds. 
With loads of help from Voshie Paine & Aerlinniel vella, I was able to relax a little bit. 

But I took it a bit further than relaxing.  I suffered burn out.  It was so bad that I sent notes to all the beautiful designers I was working for and had to step down as I felt I wasn't able to keep up with requirements. Pretty sure I was, I just freaked out, that ever happen to you? It got so bad that I avoided logging onto SL for a little bit.  I feel better now BTW.

What brought all this rambling on? 
This new Group Gift from Truth Hair!  It made me remember why I started Hair SL in the first place. To share free & inexpensive hairs with anyone who will listen to me :)

So, with this in mind, I have started going through the A- Z Designer List cleaning it up, making sure the info is correct. As I do this I am visiting each shop and posting any Free Hair I can find.
Book mark the site as I will be posting a new one daily.
Hair SL  -  https://hairsl.wordpress.com/

Sorry for the ginormous post.
Enjoy, Ember.

Feeling Drastic


I am totally feeling the pastels today. 
It got me thinking that maybe I should do theme posts, you know, like Pastel sweetie, Goth dark post, Crazy punk. 
Hmm, after a moment's reflection & a peek at my Flickr, seems I do this already :D

Enough of my rambles. 
There's some seriously adorable stuff in this post. 
  • I am wearing Mina's super cute pigtails called Tina.  ( From the pastel colour palette.)  This hair comes with a Style HUD that can control how the hair hangs. With this style you have the option of more or less bang / fringe & also the option of one pigtail over the shoulder, both over, both hanging in front etc. *This is a super idea for those times when a mesh hair maybe cuts through your clothing.*  Tina is available @ this month's round of Kustom9. ( Limos below)  Be sure to check out a demo when you head over.
  •  My skin called Rose & is made by [Mudskin]. It is in a gacha over @ The Okinawa Summer Festival 2017 Those of you who love the sweet & innocent look really need to check this designer out. My eyes & shape are also from this Gacha. Check out all the options in the designer's Flickr photo HERE - https://www.flickr.com/photos/sophamccallen/35028986403/in/dateposted/ 
  • My Nails and rings are made by a shop called Drastic. These beauties can be found over @ The Mesh Body Addicts Bi - Monthly event. The packs come with  6 rings ( hide/ show option) , HUD with 11 gem & 10 wing textures for the butterfly on the pinkie, Heart cut out Nails & a HUD for those with 10 polish options. 
Now to gush!

See the butterfly wrapped around my pinkie? I can't stop staring at it myself.  It's so thin & moves with the bento hands of my Maitreya body so well that I honestly got all confused thinking I applied it as a tattoo layer for a little bit.  Nope, it's a part of the Fairy Ring Set.  I L♥VE all the little whimsical details with one of the rings caging one of my nails. (As shown below) 
This set is available for Maitreya, Vista & Slink hands & you can choose between Silver, Gun Metal & Gold. There is a Demo so please go check it out!

Right, long post that started out short LOL. 
Happy shopping, Ember

I shoud not have said that. ( re reading Harry Potter lol)
