Oh have I expressed how much I love skateboarding lately? But the key is looking super cute while thrashing up a storm. The key to round out any good outfit really (in my humble opinion) is a good hair.

I am rocking this awesome NEW hair from F.I.O.F.O called “Haley” which you can go snag in a bunch of awesome colors at their main store location in world! One of my favorite things about this hair may be completely personal.. but it looks a lot like a hair I modded into my Fallout 4 game last year (which was my favorite mod) so when I saw it I got soooo excited.

It is a great casual, easy going hair!

Powder Pack

{powder pack} august

ppaug02.png

in an effort to feel a little more like my normal self I thought I would do a little blogging about this month’s powder pack. This is my second powder pack, last month’s I liked but I was a little frustrated about blogging it so I never finished the blog o.O. Oh well.

Any who this month was a fairly make-up heavy month compared to last month’s fairly skin heavy offering. There were two skins. One from Amara beauty which I am wearing…. and fell in love with. I even went wit the shade number 3 vs a number 2 which I generally wear beccause the tanner skin really looked beautiful and was a nice summer skin.

The make up offerings were ones that I generally would have not picked up in the store but for the most part liked. I did how ever use freckles that I have for a long time and while I don’t know the name of off the top of my head, I will add in a future post. All the make up can be found in August 2017’s Powder Pack.

Overall I will probably get a lot of use out of these appliers and it as a very solid month for Powder Pack!

A solid A from me 😀

{where to start?}

Hair – magika, dress – miss Chelsea 

It took me over 45 mins to get fully dressed and figure out what the hell to wear last night. My inventory is like a dust covered vipers’ nest, that is covering pandora’s box. I have not a clue in the freaking world on where to start with this mess, it needs done. It always needs done. I think it’s like cleaning in SL.

Hear me out. Cleaning in RL is something that a lot of people find to be a task. In it’s nature it is a chore. Many of us got paid to do things like take out the trash or clean the litter box as kids. I don’t mind some tasks of cleaning. I can wash floors, clean counters, even scrub my bathroom all day but I hate dishes. LOVE to cook… hate dishes. I will skirt around doing dishes as much as possible… but once a day I gotta suck it up and stand and wash dishes for an hour. I think organizing my inventory is like doing dishes.

It’s something that I will avoid until it is absolutely necessary. Well guys… it’s necessary now. With wanting to work towards opening my own photostudio I need to get my house in order. If I spent that long just trying to get dressed I really need to take a look at just how long it would take me to find poses or backdrops. It would take me much longer than it really should.

jacket/top – pixie cat, leggings – blueberry, hair – tentra (flf)

So now I get to start the task of making some sort of sense from my inventory. It’s gonna not be fun. I am probably going to try and quit half way through (again) but damn it I gotta do it. I am trying to make a deal with myself about the inventory mess, if I can get it all done by sunday then I get to watch GoT… live and child free (thanks to my awesome RL hubby). This does not sound like a great motivator for most but for me…. who honestly stays up till after midnight ever sunday just to be able to watch GoT with out having to pause it 50 times… it is the best motivator I can think of.

I really hope that I don’t keep putting it off, because that tiny little voice in my head says “No one sees your inventory but you… so why clean it?” which in my brain is like a totally valid reason to NEVER organize my inventory, but then I remember trying to find the jacket I wanted to wear in the photo above. If I could have remembered the name, or even who made it… I could have found the jacket (from Pixie Cat btw) in probably 90 second but no, it took me a full 10 mins to search through my folders trying to find where this was.

So I am not too sure what is going to be up on my blog in the next few days. I may post about what I am finding in my inventory… or how I am so avoiding doing it <.< (which seems far more likely). Either way, wish me luck on this insane project I have. Hopefully I don’t rage quit half way through…again.

See guys… I said I was gonna try to get out a bit and I did. Now I did just go window shop a bit and check out a few gacha yard sales. I did venture to the Portal Hub… it was really pretty and I kept trying to get the damn floor to rez for a photo but I gave up up just took this because it was a nice enough photo. I hopped around to a few clubs, even spoke in local chat! OMG I know right?! And I reached out to an acquaintance that I would like to become a friend. All in all I was pretty happy about my ventures into trying to be social.

I also found it funny when I was getting dressed today that I went towards more goth than I had been in the last few days. I swear I must be the only person who goes goth when they are trying to cheer themselves up!

So these aren’t new pieces by any means. One… my cash flow is tight trying to buy things I need to hopefully get my studio up and going at some point in the next few months. It’s a long and expensive process now that I am really breaking things down and looking at things. It’s still something I want to do but I am having to adjust my timeline so to speak. The jeans are my favorite pair, Blueberry. The top is from DRBC another favorite of mine. Both are things that I would 100% wear in RL as well.

ppg07.png

The Skin is from Pumec and is from the July Powder pack, as is the lip gloss and blush I am wearing (for the life of me I can’t remember who made it now). The eye shadow is one of my favorite from Suicidal Unborn, as are the piercing… they are from the Somber event btw and are a GREAT bento piercing set because it comes with a lot of great options to really customize your piercings. I am one of those people that are pretty brand loyal when it comes to things like make up and Suicidal Unborn is becoming one of my favorite brands in short order for sure. The quality of their appliers they put out really is some of the best “gothic” make up on grid.

Like always… my tattoos are from Dappa and are from the May Bish Box.  My Mesh ears are from Mandala, they are where I get most of my ears both human and elf. I have been super loyal to them for the better part of my SL life. I used to be obsessed with their ring & nail sets.

Tomorrow I am probably gonna show you guys a little bit of what I have been doing around my land including getting my newest house decorated and my new sky platform for my photography work. Fun times!

My Second Life · {the life of jane}

{safe haven or self imposed prison?}

Snapshot_100

I have been thinking back to my early days in SL, on my first avatar… I got on her last night to get some old pictures and got sucked down a memory worm hole. I was a social butterfly on Kay. I ran around to all the clubs, I worked as a dancer, host, and DJ. I loved DJing… that was one of my favorite past times in my old SL life. I was party girl… who may or may not have been slightly mentally unhinged at the time. I had a really drama filled romance that (at least in old note cards) played out like a bad fan fiction. Kayleigh had a full… all be it crazy… second life.

It was so odd to think that was me. That I am really the same person, well I guess I am really not that person any more. Now clubs give me panic attacks, I always feel like I am not wanted or welcome there. It’s a problem in my RL that I never in a million years thought would pass over in SL.

This weekend I went to an event for bloggers at the Blogger & Vlogger Network. I barely said a word. One of my favorite bloggers was there, I had told myself that if I saw her that I would send her an IM to say hi and let her know that her work really inspires me. Well I sat with an IM open to her for 25 mins and couldn’t for the life of me find the words to type her. When I did I rewrote a single sentence a dozen times and then didn’t even send it and TPed out there.

I felt so defeated. This was not the person I once was in SL. I was always bold and social in SL… because behind the pixel mask I wasn’t as afraid to be myself. I started thinking what changed? What fundamentally changed about how I interact with people in SL that I now am so afraid to even say hello?

I guess when I was such a social person and out there type of person in SL because I had a social circle that I was almost always with. I knew people, my friends knew people… I didn’t feel like an odd man out. While I am still super close with my SL peeps… it’s not in SL any more. We interact far more outside of SL than we ever did in world.

I am trying to go down a new path in SL… I am trying my hand at perhaps starting a family. It would work well with my hopes of one day soon having my own photography buisness but so far I really haven’t had too much luck. Adoption is a scary process. I have had a few interactions and that self doubt has really cropped up again. Am I too wired? I am comming off too friendly, too open… so many questions and no real answers.

Right now I am really doubting myself a lot. I made up my mind to put out and decorate a new house. Just something to do to hopefully lift my spirits. I picked up this really pretty house at the Apple Fall sale, now I am not sure if long term it is going to be the house for me but if not it would serve really well as a building for my studio. I am enjoying myself… it’s a good distraction from my inner demons at the moment.

I guess I should try to get out more in SL…. I gotta meet people again. I gotta try and break out of my little prison that my house and land has become.

I heard that Cassie Middles is doing a dating game show for her youtube.. I saw a “Friendship take over” version of it the other day… perhaps I will sign up to try and be on it. My luck though I would get picked… go and fucking crash… (see how my brain works >.<)

ah… well I will blog some of the other stuff that I picked up at the Apple Fall sale when I get a chance this week.

 

My Second Life

{trying to make a buck}

ppg04

I think one of the things that is hard for me is keeping on task. I have a million little ideas that I want to do in SL but I gotta pick one or two and stick to them. So after some deep thoughts I have decided to open my own photo studio to take a few appointments a week for photos priced at a reasonable amount (I am still working on pricing). Now, just like in real life I gotta come up with the capital to start this business.

So like so many people before me I am selling my Gacha extras to help fund this business. Now I am putting my RL money into as well, but poses, backdrops, props and all that are not cheap and while I am building client base (hopefully) I gotta come up with another form of income to help me get this business off the ground.

I am still gonna keep my Lost Girl Desgins shape business going as well, but that will always just be a MP based business. I see no reason for me to make that an in world store at this time as I really make these shapes more for myself to play with and toss them up on the MP for only 99L$ so if someone likes them or needs a shape for their new bento head… there ya go with out breaking the bank because good god damn bento heads are expensive!

I am one of those people that knows that I will always end up putting money into SL but it can’t hurt to try and start some kind of business as well because ya know what guys… blogging is expensive as all get up! I am no where big enough to seek out blogger positions yet so all the stuff I blog I pay for, so please help me keep this blog going by supporting my businesses!

{sweet summer child} – part two

…and on to part two of my Miss. Chelsea haul. I gotta say, I don’t do massive shops very often, mostly because I am pretty picky when it comes to my personal style but Miss. Chelsea has some of the best casual clothes (at least for my tastes) that I have found. They are totally on par with Blueberry for me when it comes to staple pieces. I did get a top that is more of a “special” piece. This top was something that I was like “oh I want something like this to really wear”. I loved the baggy fall sweater, I know I said I was looking for summer clothes but this totally works for a cool summer evening and I am sticking to that story. It came in a variety of mutted colors but like usual I went with a black/grey tone. I paired it with their “jeggings” and despite some clipping it worked pretty well.

Now I can’t remember or not, but this dress may actually be one of the group gifts. It’s one of the rare Miss. Chelsea items that comes with a color/texture changing hud, which is a feature I love personally. I liked this little dress, it works very well for a going out to the club situation.

Now the shorts are a different color of a past FLF item that I loved and I obviously needed them in more than just the Pink they had for FLF about a month or so ago. They are fun and pretty awesome as far as shorts go with that nifty plaid shirt tied around the waist.

I also got to point out that the hair I am wearing in this photo was from this friday’s (7/7/17) FLF from Wasabi Pills, which is long time favorite hair store of mine and the pretty awesome cup featured in this photo as well is an item from DRBC from the latest round of The Chapter Four (you get it when you buy their lipstick “coffee stains” which I wore in the previous photo set).

I know my photo’s aren’t super complex (yet) but I am working on acquiring more and more items. It’s a process over time to build a solid prop library and while thanks in part to Gacha events I am getting a lot more stuff to work with it is still going to take time for me to really get all the items I need. I have a very small plot of land and I am currently trying to set up three different areas for photos. So that being said I hope to be bringing you some more interesting (is that even the right word?) photos here before too long. It’s very expensive to buy high quality landscaping items and I had absolutely none in my inventory prior to May, so as time goes on… things (I hope) will get better and better.

The blog is still in it’s baby years 😛
