Holding On

Greeting and happy Sunday,

I have been a little bit on the grouchy side of life lately, and today, I am going to try to be positive and appreciate the many, many blessings in my life.  I hate funks.  And my funk has to do more with my real life, but the real life stuff that makes you forget to stop and enjoy life.  So, as the title suggests, I am holding on to my zen.

And that leads to my little run out to my garden house in SL.  I recently acquired new land and I love little glass garden houses.  You can find some of the items I used down below in the credits.  At the time, I was also sifting through my inventory and I settled on this outfit–it was so comfortable looking.

See my cute shorts–They are by Paper Arrow who debuted I believe around the summer time, and I have been impressed with their releases for many reasons.  They release footwear, accessories, and clothes.  Their clothes also include fittings for Maitreya, Slink Original and Hourglass, Belleza Isis, Freya, and standard sizes.  I mean–I know that takes lots of work, so I am very appreciative to any designer that includes so many options.  As a shopper, I tend to gravitate to those brands, which is why I also have a Blueberry item on.  Both brands think of all shoppers and the mesh bodies they wear when they create, and that is pretty cool.  You don’t have to worry–will it fit me?  You can find the cute shorts I’m wearing at The Season Story–they come in a plethora of patterns that connect to that winter theme.  The fit is amazing.  You will absolutely adore them.   Is anyone else really excited to see more and more Slink Hourglass items!?  I am.

The minute I demo’d the Tableau hair, Shocking Hair, I knew I wanted it.  Lots of attitude and I love their blonde shades.  I loved the bangs, the way it parted, and the profile of the hair is also pretty killer.  You can find it at Collabor88.  And I am obsessed with mesh heads, so seeing that Glam Affair made appliers for LOGO and Catwa  for Collabor88 made me squeal–another brand who keeps the shoppers in mind and always releases mesh head appliers mixed with system skins.  Glam Affair Lia for Catwa is so soft, with some pouty lips that she fit my mood perfectly, especially for my picture.

Not normally so chatty, but I felt like writing something this morning!  Cheers to keeping yourself in zen mode this coming week.

This round of Uber deviates from the typical cadaverous demons of October and let’s us sink into a snug spot by the fire with the theme of Pumpkin Spice.  Azuchi released a leather jacket, Fallen, to bring in the leaves of autumn.  You can also get it in the pumpkin spice color, a special for the theme of the event.  The design stitched into the very jacket, such as quilting on the shoulders, adds a realistic element and the taut leather fabric will hug the curves of your Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya bodies.

Vinyl’s Crowe leggings, at Liaison Collaborative, really paired nicely with this look.  I loved the beaded stings that dangled from each side.  It added an element of surprise to the leggings.

Truth… I kept believing it falls always from the lips of the one you love and trust the most.

“Love … I put so much faith in it. Truth … I kept believing it falls always from the lips of the one you love and trust the most. Faith … it’s all bound up to love and trust. Where does one end and the other start, and how do you tell when love is the blindest of all?”
― V.C. Andrews, Flowers in the Attic

Shiny Shabby is back for October. You can see the gallery over at Seraphim of all beautiful items to preshop. Zenith released an ornate dress that falls just above the ankles at Shiny Shabby that immediately grabbed my attention.  The Vintage Corset dress is offered in standard sizing.  I decided to rock the Just Design Friday heels (socks included) with the dress. Just Design fits their shoes to Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya feet–since I change my body daily it is nice to have such a myriad of options.  These shoes are available at the Pastel Goth Event. Glam Affair also released new head appliers for the LeLutka mesh heads in celebration of the new added expressions to Lelutka’s mesh heads. I chose to mix and match Eline and Laura.  Make sure to look for an update or revisit their delivery system in store.  You can pick up your new Glam Affair appliers while you do so!

For those that do not know, I did update my earlier post about Maitreya to reflect their response.  I am not sure how or why so many people close to the situation were confused.  I know that designers were in a panic, no notice stated why weights were not included in these specific kits, and no one was responding to inquiries from Maitreya to resolve the situation.   Maitreya’s statement makes it clear that these issues were isolated.  I will let time tell the rest of this story and look forward to Maitreya supporting other content creators.

Slink has released a curvier version of her mesh body.  Since I collect mesh bodies as a side hobby, I am sure this one will be added to my inventory as well.  With the success of mesh bodies, I can only see more and more bodies on the horizon
