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

I thought it was a beautiful day to go strolling in Moonlight Tea, so much I used my U.F.O camera to take some pics of the place!  As for some new releases across the grid, Glam Affair released Rose, another beautiful skin release.  What is different about the Rose package? Eyebrows!  Glam Affair listens to their customer base and has released several different styles of eyebrows to change up your look. So many people have their own favorite, so I found this to be such a wise decision on Glam Affair’s part.  The makeup in the entire package has dramatic to casual, so you can switch up your look easily, and clean versions (without makeup) are also included.  You should also take a stroll at Okinawa Summer Festival.  I noticed that some items have been released before, but there is also tons of new and interesting items and most places also included some gatchas as well. I also saw some new to me brands that I will be keeping an eye in the future.  I picked up my dress, shoes (gatcha), and camera (gatcha) all at this festival.

Inspirations: Comment on Other Blogs

I really wasn’t planning on writing another blogpost today, and by now, some of you would like me to go back to work. I have blogged a bit more than I have in the past because I have the week off. But, Sasy Scarborough has proposed a challenge to anyone who blogs or reads a blog.  It is simple: Leave a comment.  Read more about it here.

I know.  It may seem silly and way too simple, but I have no idea where I would be right now if it wasn’t for some sort of feedback on my blog.  I don’t get many comments, so when I do, they make me so happy–like I can’t stop smiling happy.  Someone took the time out of their busy day to say “this is great”.    I did comment more when I first started blogging, but have slacked recently.  I got so caught up in managing my own blog that I forgot to stop and verbally acknowledge what other people are doing.  I visit many blogs over the course of the week.  Many of them deserve a comment, but I don’t leave one.

I can’t tell you how awesome it is to have the support of the 52 weeks of color group or any fellow SLer who found their way to my blog and left a comment.  I can’t even tell you how happy I was when the owners of Sn@tch or Flowey or Dark Mouse left a comment on my blog.   And most recently, I was stunned to find a comment by Sasy herself yesterday.

All of these keep me going, learning, and growing as a blogger.   I will link to my first blog post ever, Feb. 2011-a ripe three months after logging into SL for the first time ever.  I may not be the best picture taker or blogger, but I have improved so much through feedback and comments.

Leave a comment for someone else.  You can think of it as giving a big old bear hug to someone else for a job well done.  Okay, off I go a commenting….

Zenith and G-Field for Fair

Pose-Everglow-616-modified (I just moved the arm out a bit more to fit the purse)

I finally made it to Fair, an event brought to us by Chic Management.  I picked up adorable boots by G-Field.  Seriously, the bow on the back it cute (see picture below). I love how my mesh jeans from The Secret Store actually fit snugly inside the cuff.    I decided to focus on accessories this round so I added Zenith’s purse for Fair to my outfit.

I missed this coat when it was first released from Valentina E., but I thought it went perfectly with my G-Fields boots.  Now, I have the perfect holiday outfit to go Christmas shopping.
