Things 014

Today I am showing a few items.  The first is the newest tattoo by Things now out at this round of The Fantasy Collective.  I made it extra fresh by wearing two layers on the mesh body so that it was easily more visible.  Though it comes in faded and fresh intensity, which is lighter than what I am wearing.  It can be applied through the Omega applier system on most mesh bodies or if you’re not into mesh just yet it is also available in classic layers.

The hair that I am wearing is by Lovey Dovey and is going to be available at the upcoming round of Totally Top Shelf.  The Merula hair will come in various colors and I’m wearing the natural ombres, which has these two shades that blend together that I am starting to take a liking to.

The fluffy muffs are by Boogers, which is a kids store.  These muffs however come with a re-sizer and will fit most avatars so perfect for adults as well and great for your winter outfits.  They will be available at the upcoming Hello Beautiful event that is geared towards children, so just be mindful of that.

The last item is the drop candles behind me that are from .aisling. and will be available as part of their gacha set at the upcoming round of the Arcade.  I featured the set in my other blog, so if you want to get a glimpse of some of the pieces from the rest of the set go to my post at Bits & Pieces of SL.

aisling 003-3

Another beautiful set by .aisling. that is available at The Secret Affair.  The Exrah set includes the crown and necklace.  They both come with a texture change hud and a resize script.  You can change the color of the roses, beads and metals on the crown and the metals and beads on the necklace.  The beads are in the back of the necklace which offer a lovely drape if you’re wearing a backless gown or dress.  You can buy as a set or individual pieces.

The other items that I am featuring today is the enchanted tree by Little Branch and the winter cattails.  They are 100% mesh with realistic textures.  The land impact ranges depending on how small or big you make it to fit your needs.

The dress I am wearing is one of the rare gowns from Luas at the Jackpot Gacha.  I was vying for the common blue, but got lucky on the second try and scored the silver rare. The commons have no middle belt as pictured.  Neither are bad for a 30 linden gacha.

I am firmly planted. I may bend, but will never break.

Una 006-2

I feel terribly exposed in this picture showing probably the most skin then in any other picture I’ve posted.  It comes from growing up in an environment where you were told that showing too much skin was not a good thing for a girls reputation. There is obviously some truth to that even in this virtual world as we all know there is a difference of thoughts when it comes to exposing your pixels.  It’s not a subject that I’m going to debate… to each their own.  I know where I stand and who I am.

That comes from having grown up also in a family that has strong women and that’s not to say they wore the pants in the house as they didn’t.  I grew up with an understanding that it was important to always know who you where you as a person. Something even my father strongly invoked, because he always said people will try to expose what’s wrong about you, because they can’t handle what’s right about you.

Someone also recently told me… it’s not what you do behind closed doors, it’s what you do when you’re naked in public. I believe that too, but even more so in the expression that is easy to take off your clothes and have sex as people do it all the time.  It’s opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, hopes, dreams… that’s really when you’re naked.

The irony in my case is that when I did, it wasn’t enough.  Though I can’t say that I haven’t learned a lot about myself in the process either.

Anyways, thanks for listening to my thoughts today and if you have any thoughts to share of your own I welcome them.
