My Blog Turned Five

Hey my readers! Yep, just as my title says my little old blog turned five on November 17th;   It’s hard to believe I’ve been blogging that many years.  I started this blog as a way to show my cute outfits I put together and to have a creative outlet when time allowed. Over these years I’ve struggled to find my place, my style and my voice in an ever changing and growing blogger population.  I’ve learned to embrace who I am, constantly challenge myself and to grow in my skills and abilities.  There have been times of frustration and rejection along with times of great excitement and acceptance.  Over these years I’ve had, and still have, the opportunity to blog for some of the most amazing creators and events on the grid.  For them, and for all those who follow and read my blog, or fave my photos on Flickr, I’m thankful.  Now let’s see what my sixth year brings!

Keep You On My Side

I’m so excited for today’s post because I get to show you what I think is THE most beautiful tattoo that White Widow has done to date and I adore all their tats.  This one is called Loving and comes in a white or pink rose version, in several applier options.  It took my breath away the second I saw it and I don’t see myself taking it off anytime soon.  I’m also wearing new hair from Truth called Ember that comes in two versions and also newness from Asteria.

Fall Frolicking

Hey my readers!!  Today’s post is all about fashion with two looks I put together inspired by newness from Exile, Alt, Breathe, Izzie’s, Blueberry and Vinyl.  I also worked some on learning more tricks in Photoshop so I was able to, finally, get two of me in one photo!  It may sound simple, actually it IS simple once you figure it out, but it seemed to elude me for awhile. Ha!  Anyway hope you love the post and go check out the goodies around the grid!

Sweetness That Bites

Hey my lovely readers!  I’m still battling the crud in RL but that isn’t going to stop me from bringing you more awesome goodies. Chez Moi just released the new billiard table at Sanarae; as always, is texture change and packed with tons of animations but is not a playable table. On me I’m wearing newness inspired by the sweatshirt from Tres Blah that reminded me of Rocky Horror and paired it up with new leather pants from Blueberry, Collabor from Cae, Shoes from Essenz and hair from Truth.

Secret Space

We are getting into the ghoulish time of year with Halloween fast approaching and the grid is filled with lots of awesome new stuff to help you get in the spirit.  The Liaison Collaborative just opened with their new theme Dark Fantasies and the Salem Macabre event also opened.  Both were just packed with so many amazing things.  Today’s post was inspired by the Dusk Set by Bee Designs and lots of small decor goodies from the Salem event.  My more modern witchy outfit was inspired by newness from Mon Cheri, Exile, Fetch and Breathe.
