I am alone, but for ghosts.

Weird title eh?
It's kinda fitting actually. 
I come online and stand alone, ghosts of past friends be it literally of figuratively rolling through my thoughts.
Then, after taking my photo & gathering the info I need for my post I log out & talk to you.
This may be why I ramble on.

This photo made me think of sadness & reflection hence the mood of my post. Hope you enjoy it even if it is a bit darker.

Every day of your life is a page of your history

Morning, Dolls!

Ack, it is so busy in my house right now. 
I have 7 kids in my house & 6 of them in the room with me fighting over the game of Life.
I could do with someone whisking me away on a magic carpet right about now I'll tell ya!
 *Ember stands muttering & twitching as she awaits her Prince*

At least I can pretend I am about to be whisked off here in SL!
If you haven't been over to Enchantment now to see, shop & hunt their 1001 Nights round, you need to! 

Happy thoughts, *Come on Sept 5th, back to school!*

Enchantment Hunt Free GIfts!

Hi, Dolls!

I didn't feel like standing alone on my platform in SL today so I took off to do the Enchantment Hunt!
This Event ends on the 31st so I figured I better tell you about the free hunt  before it's over eh!


This hunt is different than the last ones Enchantment has put on. 
You teleport directly from their website of landmarks and hints. 
 
A word of advice. Open the teleport link into a new window so you don't need to keep tabbing back to the hints.
 
 One thing I did notice is some of the stores have moved since the hunt began. 
I just took their names and tossed them into the SL search engine & if that didn't work I asked in the group. 

Oh by the way, you need to join said group to collect some of the items. Just paste this into your viewer and join for free -  secondlife:///app/group/b7849705-d288-f4bc-6487-1eb6b582e473/about

Here's just a sample of what you can find on the hunt!
Enjoy, Ember.

Scheherazade

Hi, Dolls!

Happy Weekend!
I started this post yesterday and well life got in the way of posting. 
I ended up watching Guardians of the Galaxy 2 with the fam. I may have fell asleep part way through but it's OK! I saw it @ the drive in already!

Today's photo is similar to the one I posted previously. I tried to make the background a bit less flat by using the pixlr editor feature in Ribbet but even with a lot of help from a friend I just couldn't figure it all out. ( Might have something to do with the face I had 6 kids in my house at the time, maybe.)

So, hopefully soon I will figure all this out and then I can grow & grow..
I am rambling again aren't I?

Eh, Here's my photo, credits with embedded links below as always.
Happy Weekend to you.
Ember

When I think of you.

Hi, Dolls!

I'd rather hugs,

Morning, Dolls!

So when I managed to log in yesterday I wandered around using the SL Destination Guide to choose where I would visit.

My original intent was to take some pretty SIM photos but then with me being me I forgot and decided instead to re shoot this stellar hair by MINA
I already showed it yes, but the photo was too dark to do it justice.

I saw the SIM Everwinter on the list and squealed as it is a perfect spot to show off this style. 
Did I put too much thought into my hair?  I am a girl, of course I did! LOL

Enjoy, 
Ember

I'd rather hugs.

Standing In My Storm

Hi, Dolls!

There's a pretty rocking thunderstorm going on at the moment so I will keep this short. Kinda.

Remember back when I said I didn't have any body appliers for *YS&YS*

Man my inv is a mess. I need to redo it and re work my sorting tips while I am at it.

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

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
