Hello again!
Seems like changing the layout of my blog is really getting me out of the blogger lazyness i have been having 🙂
So
wooooohoooo for that.

Right now i wanna talk about The dressing room 😉

The Dressing Room has alot of cool stuff out now,
one of the items is this hair from Cheerno that aiko, is wearing personlly i think its really cute xD
but you really need to have a hairbase to wear it, still awesome tho.
The shorts on Aiko is from Tee*fy and they are originally shorter but with some editing i made them fit aiko, on a girl they will be a perfect fit.
You can allso find the top from Emery and the skirt from SMS at TDR, you can find alot of cool stuff there right now from under 70L i think.
Im not sure but that was the higest price i saw there 🙂
This really is one of the perfect places to get high quality stuff for a low price.

Then its the awesome shoes here.
Aiko is wearing high detailed shoes From **Stash**
and im wearing adorable sandels from Theosophy.
Both are a must have in every inventory and on every avatar 😉

I allso wanna give a shout out to this cute store i found somedays ago called
COLORISM
Since Harin Doobie the owner is really making so amazingly cute stuff,
and the prices she sells her stuff for is ❤
hehe… to take a trip and cheack this store out.
Then i want to give a shout out to
GonzuS Decosta for pimping Aiko up with amazing shoes 😀

For now thanks for reading and see you soon again ❤

Have a great day 😉

Hello all my fashionistas!

Now i have awesome news the SLURLs and LMs too the Summer of Love Fair is now out!
The fair has alot of great stuff, even for the broke people 😉
Since its full of great treasures.

But over to a more serious matter.
This fair is about mental health
and it really has a story behind it that everybody really should know.
And thats why i asked Keira seerose for premission to quote a NC she sent out.


My name is Keira Seerose and I own III – a clothing brand. These freebies are from that brand, but if you know me at all you are more likely to know me as the creator of the Summer of Love Fair where you got this freebie from.. and if you’ve been to that fair you might have been to my event before that, the Black and Blue fair.

The Black and Blue fair was my first major event. Born out of sheer bloody mindedness, ambition and persistance I tracked down designers I loved and got them involved. Half way through the planning I gained Melisande Metaluna, my personal assistant, who wrote all the mental health notecards and helped me deal with designers while they set up in the venue.

The event was an unexpectedly huge success – not just for fashion but for mental health awareness. Every day I would log in to messages from people thanking me for helping them come to terms with a situation they or a loved one was in. It was amazing to be a part of something so good.

My own mental health is under severe strain and has been for many years, sexual abuse, my sisters death, my parents divorce, emotional abuse, self harm, suicidal thoughts, a severe anxiety disorder that left me house bound, 47 suicide attempts in a year, acute depression and mood dysthymia (The medical term for permenant low mood)….. I was and still am a mess, for want of a better word. But throughout my troubles I have always tried to raise awareness of what it means to be ‘mentally ill’. In my online travels I have touched thousands & thousands of peoples lives in various ways, and the best way I know how is to be brutally open about what Im going through – in the hopes that anyone going through the same will feel less alone.

The black and blue fair opened on June 4th 2010. I had worked hard to make everything perfect, with the help of Melisande and a small team of people who contributed their own skills. When I was online my driving force was relentless, pushing the venue, the designers and the whole event forward…

On the 20th of May 2010, a week and a half before opening night, my grandmother, Rosaleen, was taken very ill. I am very close to my grandmother… her and my grandfather (on my mums side) were like another set of parents to me. They helped me through all of lifes trials – including my sisters death and the sexual abuse, but more recently in life they had been my reason to leave the house.

It is near impossible for me, on a normal day – for example – to go to the shop for a pint of milk. But if my grandmother fell over I would go over to help lift her without a thought. I took them to hospital appointments, doctors appointments, x rays when they broke bones, lifted them when they fell.. the stuff you do for the people you love…

On the 20th of May we were told we would lose her. Her kidneys had failed and she was on morphine for her pain and because it couldnt leave her system it had put her into a deep sleep. We sat by her bedside all night, and at 6.45am the next morning, same as any other day, she woke up.

I stayed in the hospital for a week, with various family members coming and going my mother and I stayed there all the time, struggling to keep our eyes open at 4am to make sure if the worst happened it wouldnt be alone. When she was awake she was mostly incoherant, but spoke of her sisters – and mine – long gone, as if she were talking to them.

I helped the nurses wash her and change her bed, when she asked for water I gave it to her on a sponge on a stick – an odd contraption but it stopped her from choking on a drink. When she asked for a cup of tea (gotta love the british) I gave it to her through a straw. Brushed her hair, wrapped her rosary around her hand, sung to her in the night when my uncle fell asleep in the visitors chair.

Why am I telling you this? Because its important to know how much I loved my grandmother. It is important for me to tell people how much I Loved my grandmother. On the 27th of May 2010, around 4am – she passed away. With her husband, daughter, son, and two grandchildren (Me and my sister) at her side.

Throughout that week Melisande held the black and blue fair together, and the fair would not have been possible without her help. The day after my grandmother passed I came back to SL and back to work – luckily I was still in shock which lasted until after the fair opened.

This fair, the Summer of Love Fair, is in her memory. Because she was always proud of the little things I did to try and help other people. She supported me in all that I Did, and loved me despite my flaws. There were many days and nights when I felt like I had no one in the world… a feeling I Know that a lot of people have. I know now how wrong that was.

It feels like the world should have stopped. It feels like I shouldnt have to tell strangers reading a notecard about my grandmother, that the whole world should have known and loved her as I did. Loss is an illogical and cruel beast.

The other notecard in this folder will tell you all about what bereavement is and its signs and symptoms, but if you’ve felt it you know. Bereavement is a broken heart without hope. It is utter darkness and shock – because it cannot be undone no matter how hard you wish. It steals the light from your life and shows no remorse.

Bereavement can last days, weeks or years. I am still affected, weekly, by the death of my sister when I was 7… and I am not sad about that. The pain is the only reminder to the world that she mattered. Does that sound familiar? Don’t be ashamed to value the pain and not want to let it go. Although life must move on, its alright to feel like it shouldnt. Its part of grieving… and while I will tell anyone whos having those feelings to talk to someone about them – I would like to end this notecard by saying thank you to all those who enjoyed this fair or the Black and Blue fair. Anyone who learnt anything from it. Anyone who took more than fashion away from this place… because the love and compassion and desire to help people that made me create these events came from my grandmother. So this ones you for Granny.

I really hope u all take a trip down to the summer of love fair 🙂

I wanna thank Keira Seerose for telling us this amazing story and i wanna thank Jared Tremmor for being my sexy male model

Tp to Summer of Love fair

[NOTE] Everything Jared is wearing can not be found at the fair, but everything except the hair and the shoes can be found  there.
Sorry for the inconvenience

Hello again 🙂
So today i have joined the Newbie style challenge that many others have joined to now 🙂
So this is my newbie style.
So to give you readers what kinda rules i have been up against on this here they are

Newbie Style Challenge Guidelines

Things you can do:

  • You can use your existing shape (or give your alt your shape)
  • You can purchase freebies, dollarbies (or anything under $20L)
  • You can use group gifts, free gifts, hunt items, etc
  • You can use it if you win it! (Lucky Chair, Midnight Mania)
  • All items must be acquired during the time of the challenge (you can’t use free items not currently available or in paid groups you’re already a member of)

Things you cannot do:

  • You cannot spend more than $20L
  • You cannot ask your designer friends to send you stuff (and if you’re a designer, you cannot use your own stuff unless it is FREE to everyone else too :P)
  • You cannot use group gifts from groups that are paid-to-join
  • You cannot transfer inventory from your main to your alt
  • You cannot use anything in the library folders

/revised/ You CAN use some items from the library folders, if you really want to! Use sparingly.

The first i started to look for as i was looking for freebie stuff was the skin.
So i looked trew my inventory and found the Sindecade skin that was a gift at there store so then it was just to tp there and see if they still had it, and they did 😀  woohoo…  but as i was going threw stores i got to ORTA and they allso had a opening gift skin that is amazing…but the fact that i knew many would use this Orta skin i choosed Sindecade 😀
Since the skin is kinda grayish in its skin tone i wanted to have some vivid colors into the outfit, and that i got from using the R.icielli high waist skirt in aqua that im totally fallen head over heels for since it is amazing.. hehe..
and with this shorts i used the top that was apart of a dress in the Orta opening gift.
With that i used the amazing pumps in fuschia that is a subscribo gift for Maitreya… and again amazing.. hehe…
as i was looking for freebie hair i found many styles but none that really said omg thats the one, so insted i started working on the male.
And let me tell you
this was a pain in the a**!

I started the same way.. so i was looking for a skin and i was everywhere didnt find anything then i heard that it should be a group gift at this one store and i whent there and was so happy since the skin was actually very good and it was only 1L and i was happy and i get into the group so i can join it all happely and the group say to me “bwahahahahaha!!!  you aint got no lindens so you have notting to do here!! ”  i felt so cheated and teased when i saw the it cost 250L to join the group. So i was mad and decided to find some hair insted to get myself in a happy mood again.
and i looked around for hair and i got to this place Black Maria that has really cool mohawks for free and this is where i get happy again 😀
Then i started asking around in groups about free skin and this one guy tells me that Mr.Poet has a lucky board skin. So i tp there all happy and wait for my letter to pop up….
and i wait,
Crash
wait
crash
wait
and crash.
But then when i logg in again after my last crash my letter lights up as a glory in the board and im so happy i think i could fly.
So i tp home and try out the skin and it looks sooo cute xD
The skin might be a lil girly but i love it, i love it i love it i love it!!
might be because i waited for it in 40min or so but i love it!
Then my only problem was that that cute skin and a mohawk didnt fit good.
So i was looking for hair again.
The scarf is allso from Mr poet and was free 😀

Then i got a lil lazy and whent home to then perv xstreetsl.com for stuff… here i found some cool sneakers from =Void= for 9L and FatPack of Jeans Som Custom INKZ for 10L.
So he didnt get to be all 100% freebie..
But as i was going to NinikoBoy to see if the sweater i got there for free some time ago where still there (and it was)  i whent perving around at the sim and found a braclet for free at SWITCH and i found D!va, and D!va is where i got the hair from. The one on my girl is the one i got from a lucky board they had and the one on my guy is a group gift 😀

So the last thing i did before i ended my outfit hunt was to add this cute flower on my girl that was a 7L gacha at RibboN it allso have flower flipflops included when u get it 🙂

So this was my freebie look 🙂   i hope you all liked it.
and thanks for reading 😉

[UPDATE] The shapes are homemade by me

So i have finaly started to put my friends into my blog, and my second friend in my blog is Lumikko, and earlyer today i made him broke so he totally deserved a a spot in my blog because he looks awesome.. hehe…

So the jacket his wearing is from Sey, its a great jacket that really looks AWESOME in my eyes 🙂
You can get this jacket in diffrent colors, like this one.
This jacket has diffrent color schemes of purple, and i think it looks great, might be because i really love purple, but they might have it in the color you would love anyways.

The jeans are from Action, and this are great, and they are allso one of Lumikkos fav jeans.
As you can see this are skinny jeans, and what is great with this is that they have prim cuffs.
I really like when its prim cuffs on skinny jeans, and i think this jeans are kind of a must have if you like skinny jeans 🙂

So he is wearing the famouse Pornstar shoes from Urban bomb unit to this outfit, and as we all know this shoes is a must have to have, they have diffrent patterns and colors so you can make them look exactly how you want them to look.
His skin and hair is from Buried, a store that i really think is great, they have alot of cool hairs and skins for guys in this store. And the girls can allso come hair if they want a short cool hair, i have myself some of the hairs from this place and i think it looks awesome on me xD heheh

Last but not least its some awesome stuff from Pink Fuel one of my fav stores. His cute lil bunnies that he wears most of the times looks awesome on him and same with the toast in his mouth, it gives his look a lil cuter look, and still makes him look awesome.

The Panda bean bag is really a great bean bag with many cute poses that will look great on pictures
🙂

TIPS: You might not see this but his eyes is from Vision and Hermony and by using a diffrent eye base and some prim eyes in diffrent colors and shades it gives you a really cool look 🙂

So this is the end of the post, and thanks to Lumikko for being awesome and being in my blog 😀 *hi5*
and for you other people that reads my blog, hope you like his style and thanks for reading my blog 🙂
