Walking away from those things that no longer serve me


The words seem to be stuck in my head this morning as I get to writing this post.  I had one of those nights where I slept like a log, but then woke up with a dream playing in my head and so I feel a little sluggish still even if half my day is almost gone.  I have racing thoughts going on of what I need to accomplish later today in between the two appointments I have this afternoon The list being checked off and yet you have this thought niggling in the back of your mind that you’re forgetting something.  In my case nothing new. I am quite forgetful already as it is.

Anyway, it’s Friday and hope some of you are off to a good start for the weekend ahead. Today I am showing another prop by Industry 7, the City Wall Set that is part of their Urban Studio gacha at The Epiphany.  I’m only showing a partial view of the wall, plus I put together two side by side for this scene.  The other item is trashcan prop with the catchy saying.

The other item that I am featuring today are the Triteleia heels by Empire. These over the knee lace up heels are just the kind of shoes a girl needs for a Friday night. Empire makes some of the hottest shoes in-world and if you like these then join the VIP Group for a minimal cost of only $499L to stay up to date on new releases and get some amazing group gifts like I’m wearing.  These are made to fit several bodies, the Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Physique, Venus and Maitreya, which I am using.  It includes a hud with 2o colors to choose from, so it’s really a great bargain.  I look forward to showing some more fabulous shoes from this creator in the near future.

Industry 042

My grandmother turned 83 today and we will be surprising her for dinner.  She thinks she’s going out to dinner with just my uncle and his wife and their son. Instead she will be greeted with several of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and maybe even a great great one.

My grandmother is a gutsy woman who has a lot of energy and has a memory that stretches wide and yonder.  A woman after my own heart. I wonder what she would say if I showed her some of these pictures of me in tattoos.  Chuckles.

Speaking of which I am wearing a tattoo by Endless Pain, a version 2 of their Moth tattoo.  I’m also wearing Alyssum heels by Empire and an add-on piece to the thigh, which are available at the gacha event Epiphany.

Unkindness 2 July 2016

The background in the first picture is from Industry7, all gacha items also to be found at the Epiphany.  The Urban Studio is a great collection of props that are fantastic for photos.

The bottom photo was a submission to unKindness, which was selected as their feature photo on the LTD Magazine for July/August.  The magazine is out now and can be found here.  I add these awards and/or recognition’s to my feature tab on top in both of my blogs to share, but also as a way to recall these little accomplishments along the way.  I had three group covers during this month along with this magazine coverage as well as several of my photos selected with my permission to be used on market place.

Thank you all for continuing to support my blogging endeavors.

Tres Chic 023

I was in the middle of finishing up these pictures last night when suddenly I lost my internet.  I had forgotten that they were laying out cable in the neighborhood and services were going to be cut off in the evening hours until the morning.  It’s why I didn’t get around to posting anything yesterday, as it’s already the next day here.

Hope it’s a great Wednesday!

When I’m back on on my feet again

When Im back on my feet 010

Gonna break from these chains around me
Gonna learn to fly again
May be hard, may be hard
But I’ll do it
When I’m back on my feet again
Soon these tears will all be dryin’
Soon these eyes will see the sun
Might take time, might take time
Bull I’ll see it
When I’m back on my feet again

Shoes can set you on the right path.

21Shoe 037

It’s almost that time again ladies where you can grab some fabulous shoes for the price of one.   The 21Shoe event is every month on the 21st and only for 24 hours can you buy two pairs of exclusive shoes from some of the established shoe creators in Second Life.  I’m showing two pairs from different designers that are participating this month.  The first picture are the pumps from G&D that are made to fit the Maitreya mesh body, the Slink high feet and The Mesh Project body.

21Shoe 007

This second pair denim heels is made by KC Couture and has been made to fit the Maitreya mesh body, Slink high feet and the Belleza mesh body.  If you want to see the other shoes for this month, check out the 21Shoe  website where the pictures of the shoes are being added daily.   If you want to stay informed about the event and get some great gifts as well, there is a group in-world you can join for a small fee.  This month’s gift is 12 exclusive fashion poses courtesy of Thirty Loop Animations.

The last thing I want to mention is this brick path set by Jian that she is releasing tomorrow for 25L Tuesday. Seriously, that’s a steal!   The brick path is low impact, and has 26 pieces and 12 texture options that can be changed either piece by piece or to all paths of this set by one click.   After tomorrow the price will go up, so make sure you grab it.

It’s a bean toss, but I’ll save you teddy.

Rescue Teddy 037

Another cute outfit for the toddleeDoo for the career fair theme at the next round of the “All The Little Things.”  This one is a fire fighter outfit that comes with overalls, shoes, hat and the fire extinguisher backpack.  If red isn’t your color it can also be found in pink, yellow and a black one with some pictures on it.

In real life  when my nieces and nephews were going through elementary school they always had a day when the fire department would come visit the school and teach them about fire safety.  As part of that they got to sit in the front seat of the fire truck.  They loved it as they thought it was a really cool thing to do.  I was at first thinking of finding a location where there was a fire truck and just snapping a picture inside the truck somehow, but this idea won out.

You can see I’m easily amused.

The beauty of India.

India 009

I slept a good eight hours last night even if it was not very peaceful as evident by the massive headache I woke up to. I’m extremely tired today and it’s just morning.

I was playing with the idea of putting down a home again and started by placing out a couple that I got from the arcade this round.  The homes are always lovely, but always tend to run too small for me personally as I find myself not able to maneuver around in them as easily. I know most can be edited and made larger though it means that the prim count will go up exceptionally higher.

This house called the Jodhpur was inspired by the crafts and culture of the Indian state of Rajasthan according to the creator’s remarks.  Jodhpur being the second largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan.  The house and all the decor pieces are very detailed, and textures well done and you can’t help and enjoy the display of colors.

I didn’t settle on keeping this out, though I did enjoy decorating a room to snap a picture in this outfit I’m wearing.

Real duty calls, so everyone enjoy your Tuesday!
