What’s The Tea? (Why Do I Blog Meme & The Secret Store Preview for faMESHed)

What's the Tea

Hey all,

SO faMESHed opens tomorrow! (which means Collabor88 is only 8 days awayyyyy) I HAD to show off a blazer for this round from The Secret Store (Maylee Oh) “Oh how I love thee let me count the ways” First of all I can ALWAYS appreciate a well made blazer, but what made me fall in love was the textures and colors, there are 8 different colors (I took a grabilla here to show!) and the inside of the blazer is this soft vintage floral color that makes you want to show if off a bit like “oh you think the outside is fly?!? BAM look at the inside!” I think I’ve gone on about it enough, make sure to pick this blazer up tomorrow at the faMESHed May round!!!

Next I want to talk about this Garden Cafe Caravan…. let me just say…. it’s so freaking adorable!!!! There are so many options I don’t even think I can talk about them all without missing something, there is texture change, it’s multi sit for up to 5 people, there are TONS of props, the stools are separate and have their own animations and props. All via menu which is awesome because I hate the spam pop ups for props, instead you pick what you want from the menu and pick the pose to match and you are done! There are props for food and props for the animations like sponges and plates and such. The clock on the wall can be set to any timezone aaand there are parts that omit light if you choose you want to shine a lil light on the party! I want to throw a legit mini garden tea party just use this! I’m so in love with What Next lately aaannndddd word on flickr issssss this is coming soon! Which is funny because  I said I hoped rideable mesh bikes were not far away! and here they come! What Next is making me a happy happy girl!

I love Berry’s memes and I haven’t been able to do many because I’ve been busy in rl, but I wanted to show my support by completing her “Why Do I Blog Meme”

    1. How long have you been blogging? Since February 2012 under Kid Friendly Fashion  aaaannnddd Since July 2012 under Pixel Pantomime
    2. Why did you start blogging? (I guess I’ll answer this twice for both blogs) Well I’ve always loved taking photos in SL, but I never really did much with them so I thought well hm I’ll just create a blog and play with clothing (any excuse to shop) maybe introduce people to items they hadn’t seen and all will be well in the world. After a couple months of being completely bored with kid’s blogging (not much comes out for kids that alllllaaa kids don’t already have, so I really wasn’t ‘helping’ anyone) I took a couple photos that turned on a lightbulb above my head as I was editing them (Photo 1 & Photo 2) I realized how fun it was to have this idea in your head and just kinda run with it, using items you already own and wearing them in ways you either normally wouldn’t or hadn’t yet, and showing others a different way to wear those same items that they also may have or having them to run and buy them. It’s a great feeling when your art is appreciated and honestly at that time in my life I felt zero appreciation from every angle I could imagine, in my RL and SL. I think back to that now when people ask me why I blog. I did it because it gave me sunshine during the rain, and a creative outlet for all my emotions that I felt I couldn’t express verbally. I know that sounds a bit emo or deep, but it’s true. When I first started so many people downed me for wanting to blog, you wouldn’t even believe the crap I dealt with, when people should have been happy for me, they only thought selfishly of how it was taking my attention off of them, but I wasn’t going to stop, no way no how.  SORRRYYYY BOOUTTTT ITTTTTTTT!
  • How many times a week do you post an entry? Usually about 3 times a week. I’ve been busy a lot as of lately so I have been just blogging items that I receive.
  • How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis? Honestly I never really go to certain blogs just to read them (cept Berry’s), flickr is my window into the fashion world, I go through flickr, see something I like, fav it, and click the blog link.
  • Do you comment on other people’s blogs? I have a couple times, but I really should do more of it, I admire looooootsssss of bloggers and what better way to show it!
  • Do you keep track of how many visitors you have? Yessum, I usually check to compare with past post to see what people liked from one that they didn’t from another. Trying to find that missing element to keep improving myself.
  • Did you ever regret a post that you wrote? No I don’t think I’ve ever really said anything to enrage anyone or vaguely take stabs or anything petty like that.
  • Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog? I show some of my personality with what I write, but I definitely could show more because I don’t usually just ramble, it’s like “O.K. here is the outfit and here is where you can get it”
  • Do you blog under your real name? Nope! I thought about it once because I’m a huge make up lover in RL and wanted to show tuts and products etc buutt it never happened, maybe in the future!
  • Are there topics that you would never blog about? Anything that starts an argument NOOOO THANK YOU! This is my blog for enjoyment not to get attention because it has turned into a platform for fighting or arguing. I feel if I ever reach that point where I’m crying out for that kind of attention (never gonna happen but I’m just saying) then it’s time to shut my blog down and call it a day. So many people waste time talking ill about people, events, designers and creators in SL that they haven’t even come in contact with, just have an opinion about, and I like to say “Everyone with a keyboard thinks what they rule the net” (keyboard confidence I like to call it). I would never say something on my blog or the internet in general that I would not say to your face in real life. Simple.
  • What is the theme/topic of your blog? I usually only talk about fashion and fashion events, time to time I may share something like a friend getting married or something of the sort, but it is not often, think I’ve done it once.
  • Do you have more than one blog? If so, why? No
  • What have you found to be the benefits of blogging? Most of my SL prior to blogging was sitting on an empty lot of land changing my outfit 5 million times or shopping soooo not much has changed LOL but I have definitely met a lot of people who I hold dear so at least I can change my outfit with a few IMs open filled with goofiness, or have some company. I’ve have this strong sense of pride that I don’t feel I had before, and even a bit of confidence that wasn’t there before. I’m usually really shy when I meet people the first time and now I’m more like “HEYYYYYYYYYY Y’ALL!” *does secret handshake I made up to look cool* haha I have to say I couldn’t imagine my SL without blogging, if I quit blogging it means I probably quit SL!
  • So, why do you continue to blog? I’ve spent a year learning, advancing, networking, etc… and there is so much more of it to do! I can’t stop won’t stop like P Diddy! Yup, I said that.

Contemplating (New @ Zodiac)

Contemplating

Heyheyheyyy,

A new round of Zodiac is once again among us. This round is for all the Taurus out there, Happy Birthday! I know I am hardly wearing anything in this post so don’t judge me! However I was trying to be witty because I was feeling lazy and apparently that’s a trait that Taurus’ and myself currently have in common, see what I did there?

I live for a good maxi dress so I had to put on this maxi dress by lassitude and ennui that is currently at Zodiac, it comes in 5 colors all are a bit ombre I guess you could say, I love how the bottom of this dress has a bit of a sheer overlay, makes it very soft and feminine.

Next I want to talk about this hair do I got going on, it’s by LoQ and currently at TDR Fusion, it comes with 2 options, ponytail to the left and ponytail to the right. which is all good but you get a fatpack for both options….for 70L!

So I’ve been a tad bit M.I.A! I finished a long distance move in RL and it’s been busy as hell let me tell you…I usually hate moving, but this move wasn’t like any other, my entire RL has changed and honestly I couldn’t be happier. Life is what it is yo. Even though some things seem hard or impossible and you don’t have the energy to even begin to deal with the shit, if you can just tough it out and get where you need to be and do what you need it will all be worth it. Enough with the speech, I missed blogging like crazy, it’s only a week and some change BUT STILL. I didn’t get to cover collabor88 like I wanted so I took some time to do that today, and in only a week so many things have been released or events started! There is Cosmetic Fair going on (which I covered in this post), Bees Through the Season (still have to scope that one out), Mon Tissu released, Lelutka released…. you get the point. Even though I was whining “wahhhh I missed so muchhhh” I’m glad I got to come back and shop like a mad woman!

Thrifty (NEW @ Collabor88)

A new round of Collabor88 is among us! This month’s theme is Kitsch which has turned out amazing. Tons of unique items this round. I’m so excited to put more of these items together! My first batch of items to share comes from Glam Affair, Yummy, Glow Studio and u.f.o. As always Aida Ewing of Glam Affair has created a beautiful skin for this round that she has named Margot, She comes in 6 make ups and a clean version all in the America tone ANNNDDD my favorite favorite favorite part…..*drum rolls* Margot comes with 5 different eyebrow colors, Blonde, Light Brown,Dark Brown,Red and Black!! I live for it. Next Polyester Partridge of Yummy made food fashionable with her fast food jewelry, there’s burgers, french fries, doughnuts, hot dogs, and pizza…. if there’s something I love more than retail therapy for a pick me up… it’s junk food, and now I have both!

Thrifty

Included some raw shots of all the Margot makeups including the clean version, I should have showed the different eyebrow colors that I were beyond excited to see, but I failed I’m sorry. Also my lashes are wonky, but let’s roll with it.
