as is ever so on the road

“…nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road…”

Good morning world! And goodbye! I used up all my time to come up with a title for my post today so there’s no time for me left to ramble! I know, bummer! So, I’m going to let you have a quiet one instead and probably bother you tomorrow. Take a look at the credits below and happy Monday (ugh!)

Good morning and happy almost Friday! Writing down today’s credits took me forever which means two things. 1. I don’t have any time left to ramble and 2. You now have to read them all. Don’t be lazy, I might test you! If it’s not obvious enough, today I’m a biker, following the theme of the current round of Uber. The creations are many and worth your time, so hop over and happy shopping!

Oh and interesting fact: I’m terrified of motorcycles. Like, seriously! Being on one scares the hell out of me. I like bikers though! And this picture was fun to make.

Grab two snacks and take a look below for all the important details.

Not much to share with you this morning, so I guess, no news, is good news…and let’s get to the stuff.

Lybra has been very productive this month. Participates in almost every event there is on SL at the moment. I’m wearing her release for the Crossroads event. It’s a bodysuit, for your Maitreya mesh body only and available in 12 colors.

lybra-wip3

The fur cape is from Coco, who never disappoints. Shoes are from N-core, hair is beautiful from Tram and the necklace is from Modern Couture from past On9 round (should be in the mainstore now).

lybra-wip2

The backdrop is a new build from Minimal and gacha for the new round of Chapter Four event. Pretty cool and perfect for photography. The owner and creator seems to be a great person too. I haven’t met him but I’ve had a small issue with the backdrops and he’s been very generous and helpful. I appreciate it Ors Quan, thank you.

That was quick, right? Okay, I have to go to work but I’ll see you all next time. Have a nice day/night everyone and be kind to one another.

Not much going on in my RL lately, nothing worth mentioning anyways, apart from the regular every day drama and stress, so let’s just move straight to the post, shall we?

Evolove is certainly one of my favorite stores on SL. They’re mostly known as an established poses store but they do have a boutique as well, where one can find apparel and decor just as unique and beautiful as their poses are. I have the privilege to be a part of their team for few months now, and oh my, what an amazing team it is. From the store owners to their blogger manager and the rest of their bloggers, they have all made me feel so welcomed and loved since day one. They’re quite productive too. Their creations can be found in several events at the moment, such as The Liaison Collaborative, Tres Chic, Expose and Pose Lover & Friends Event, where the pose in this picture is currently at and one of my personal favorites for sure. I’ve mentioned in previous posts how poses are a very important part of photography. From creating a mood to showcasing a certain style and making a good picture in general, poses are the first thing I always work on. As soon as I have that figured out I can work on styling and everything else.

You might have also noticed by now, how I love my mesh heads. I sort of have this expensive habit of collecting them and usually wear different one on each post, but lately, I have to admit, I can’t take Dyana off of me. This face is so darn cute and pretty I just love looking at it. So I think she’s going to stay with us for a little while. Hehe.

Hair is from Rezology. Another very productive store, which lately has been working on mesh heads as well. First mesh head was scheduled to be released very soon but right now all hairstyles are being updated so complexity levels can be lowered. That should take around a month to do, so new hairstyles and mesh heads will be postponed until November/December. You can read more about the updates on their Facebook page here. The glasses are from ROWNE‘s actress gacha, a common one and available in 3 colors, gloves are from Real Evil, quite old release but one of my favorites and the fur poncho is from IAF (I Am Fashion) store which can now be found in the marketplace only, since the in world store closed. Last but not least, the legwarmers are from Zenith and can be found at the new round of Tres Chic, which is amazing!

That would be all for now, be nice, be kind to one another and catch you all next time.

Have a good day/night everyone.

End of Summer…

The end of summer has definitely come and gone, well actually I’m not even sure it arrived properly for me but well it’s nothing new.  The cooler days are coming and already the nights are darker earlier.

To be honest whilst I do love summer once it arrives, I am also very much a lover of Autumn and winter too and I am looking forward to those not only in RL with cosy nights, in cosy comfy clothes, hot chocolate and fires, but also in SL with all the amazing clothes I can’t wait to see wear.

But for today I have chosen a wonderful summery outfit to end my summer with gorgeous little dress by L.c. Clothing and available at Pose Lover & Friends, and if like me you love to buy and use poses, check out this sexy little pose by XXY called Flirty girl also available at the Pose Lover & Friends Event.

Happy Monday everyone ♥

Spotlight

I got to admit I loved creating today’s post.   As many know I’m the girl who loves her comfy clothes, jeans, tops, trainers etc but that isn’t to say I don’t love to get all sexy when posing, or when out clubbing, or even just when you in that mood for something more sexy, more sensual, it’s a lot of fun.

Today I got to do just that when I bought the new outfit by RealEvil at Whore Courture, this outfit is VERY sexy and suits my bad girl inside very nicely hehe.  I accompanied it by the amazing tattoo by Ephemeral and completed it by MEOW POSES new pose Graceful available @ Suicide Dollz.  Sure was a lot of fun.

Have a great day everybody ♥

Best Friends Celebrate

I’ve called this one Best Friends Celebrate in honour of my best friend, partner in crime and partner on the blog Exis who is celebrating her birthday today.   I’ve been fortunate to celebrate a few birthdays with her now and each one is special as the last however every day with Exis is special.

She is my Best Friend, my rock at times, the person who makes me laugh when I don’t even want to, my confident and someone I am thankful of having in my life each and every day.   From the day I met her to today I have watched her go through some amazing times, some awful times and some of the most hilarious stories ever heard.

I am proud of the woman she has grown to be, she will always be a brat, a princess and the best friend you can have,  so a huge Happy Birthday Exis my wonderful bestie, have an amazing day.  Love you lots ♥

Best Friend

Sky Fallen

Sky Fallen is the new Sim involving the Elysion month long Photography challenge  If you’re not aware of what Elysion is, it’s an amazing Sim you can explore in SL, which has many different parts and all as breathtakingly beautiful as each other.   There is a group joining fee but believe me if you’re like me and love to explore Second Life or you may be a budding photographer or blogger Elysion is a must have in my opinion.  I have spent so many hours there, taken so many pictures and still I haven’t finished yet.

Now on to Sky Fallen, this is a separate sim to Elysion that is only available during the challenge from 20th August until 18th September and you need to be a member of Elysion to gain access.  I went there today and the small part I have so far seen is simply stunning.  The designers are hugely gifted, talented, amazing at what they do to create such wonderful places.  You can also add any pictures you take to the White Pines Gallery Flickr Group located here.    Check it out you won’t be disappointed.

Happy Wednesday Everyone ♥

Black & Blue

We’ve all heard at least one fashion rule, right? You know what I’m talking about, all the things that we were told ever since we started dressing ourselves on our own and creating our own personal style. This is something that didn’t interest much the boys, and probably still doesn’t, but fashion is unisex so I guess everyone could be concerned.

One of the rules my mom always used to follow and had me following as well is that black and blue don’t match. Personally, I wouldn’t use the word match, but I would most likely say, the contrast, fashionwise, is not interesting. It’s definitely a combination of colors I wouldn’t choose to wear.

Of course, as you have probably known by now I’m a huge geek and I google everything, so interestingly enough I gathered up some opinions and thoughts on the subject. Apparently there are a bunch of most common and popular rules, which people follow until today.

One of them, most pervasive of them all, would be never wear white after Labor Day. Frankly, I had never heard of it before and by reading about it, I understood that Labor day, to the Americans, means the end of the summer, so people shouldn’t wear white in the winter days. Also many people, again according to the article, seem to follow this rule and believe it is true. Well I’m sorry but I would totally wear white throughout the whole year.

Another rule would be, always wear shoes that match your bags (and belts if there are any). My thought on this one is similar to the author’s. If your shoes and bag match your outfit is enough. No need for them to be same color, and I quote: “forget about matching and start thinking about what goes together and what goes with your outfit”.

Next rule would be never wear red if you’re a redhead. I don’t have much to say about that, as I can’t see anything wrong with it. I know I’m not wearing red unless I really don’t have a choice. Not my favorite color.

Another rule would be never mix metals in your wardrobe, followed by never wear tights with open-toed shoes and last but not least, never wear black with brown or blue.

I can understand why there has to be a number of rules and stereotypes in fashion. It makes sense in a way. But then I’m thinking, there would be no such thing as creativity, or creating trends and owning a style, unless people actually didn’t follow the stereotypes and did their own thing. If you like it, wear it. That would be my rule I guess. You can’t please everyone and it’s impossible for everyone to like you or your style.

As I’ve mentioned previously, black and blue are colors I wouldn’t wear together. But I could use them together in photography instead.

What are your thoughts on the subject? I would love to read them all in the comments below.

Have a good night everyone!

Life is the sum of your choices…

Life is the sum of your choices, how true this is, I have thought a lot about this quote recently and how true it is, whether we make good choices or bad choices they are still our choices and therefore we have to live with the consequences of those choices, be it something amazing happens to you or something heart breaking.   I don’t believe everyone in life makes only good choices, I certainly have made my fair share of bad choices but I own those choices, I live with them and I learn from them, what I won’t do is blame others for what choices I do make.

This doesn’t mean I don’t get to be upset or hurt, or happy or elated because of the consequences, or even have the support of others when I make the wrong choices, its just me being accountable for my own life.   This in my mind makes me a strong person, someone I should be proud to be and yes sometime I need reminding of that.  So next time you make a good or bad choice, recognise it for what it is and move on, learn from it and know it’s making you the person you are meant to be, in the place you are meant to end up.

The sun is shining again today, it’s a refreshing change for a British Girl lol so time to enjoy it.

Happy Wednesday Everyone ♥

Life is the sum of your Choices
