My Second Life

Month

October 2017

It’s that time of year…

It used to be nothing, now it’s something

 Today is Halloween, the day when we celebrate all things scary and spooky. Children will be dressing up like little ghosties and ghoulies, before their proud parents take them off to knock doors for candy.  This was never as a big a tradition here in the UK as it is in the US. When we were children we never dressed up for Halloween. We never even had pumpkins. There was a time when you couldn’t even buy pumpkins in England unless you were very posh and shopped at the very best places. Now at this time of year you can’t move for them! It’s all got a little bit silly, out of control and far too commercial for my liking. Having said that, I’ll be doing my bit this evening, I have bought plenty of sweeties so when the little darlings come knocking, I’ll be able to give them a treat, and save myself from being tricked! And after, I may go for a ride on my broomstick…..

(insert evil laugh here!)

 

Gems Of Topaz

 

Making the most of the outdoors before it gets too cold, here I am sitting on the very cosy Harvest Cuddle Rug from Gems Of Topaz. This is an exclusive at The Underdog Event, which runs until 4th November. And yes, it’s a cuddle rug, but I didn’t have anyone available to cuddle with when I took the pictures! The rug comes in two colour versions, the Fall Edition, which is the one my bottom is perched on, and the Equinox Edition. The Rugs itself consists of a cosy blanket for the ground, some very comfy hay bales to lean against, and a pile of cute pumpkins. But, that’s not all, this is not just a rug, this is a Gems Of Topaz Rug! And that always means there is more. I’m sitting in the only single pose I could find in the rug, and as I sat, very conveniently the laptop computer appeared! It disappears too when I stand, must be some Halloween magic going on there! So, there’s more still, there are 3 casual poses, 8 for female/female, 16 male/female, 8 for dual couples (4 avatars), 8 threesome, 3 foursome and 3 fivesome, yep ALL those poses packed into this one little rug! If that wasn’t enough, there are 5 textures to choose from too!

The top and skirt I am wearing come from Apple Heart Inc. This is the Tracy Top and Skirt, and they are exclusive at the current round of Designer Circle, which is running this time right up until 18th November. Both Pieces come in fits for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, and there is an alpha layer too, plus some standard sizes for classic bodies too.  There is a HUD. The HUD offers 8 solid colours, plus 7 print textures for the top, and there are 9 solid colour options for the pearls and tassles on the top, and 9 solid colours for the skirt. Also from Apple Heart Inc. at Designer Circle are my sandals. These are the Adele Heels. These come in fits for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh feet and there is a HUD offering lots of colour options for each aspect of the shoe.

My Hair is another recent release from Rezology. This one is called Asch Paradigm. All Rezology mesh hair comes with a HUD that has infinite colour options via the spectrum colour changer, plus a standard collection of basic colours. There is also a luster light included in every pack to enhance the look of your hair if you wish to use it. You can get Asch Paradigm plus lots of other great styles at the Rezology main store right now!

Star Gazing

Star Gazing 1

For my part I know nothing with any certainty but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

There’s nothing quite like gazing at the stars. And here I am in this gorgeous dress from Hypnose. This is the Astra dress in black. Astra comes in fits for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

My hair is the brand new Unfurled hairstyle from Rezology. I wrote about this in my post HERE, but I liked it so much I decided to wear it again, and in this picture you can see how it unfurls beautifully down the back. As always with Rezology Hair there are infinite colour options via the HUD, and there is also a luster light included to give your hair the beautiful shiny look. You can get this, and lots of other fabulous styles at the Rezology main store.

Skin Deep

Skin Deep

Men swoon at her beauty
which is beyond their comprehension 
For them she’s an angel of loveliness
and is to be paid attention
but after all her beauty
is only skin deep
for inside is what is beautiful
a treasure to keep..

Tight Rope

Tight Rope_002 edit

You ever feel like sometimes you’re walking a tight rope? One wrong move and you can fall off at any time? That’s how I feel most days! It’s tiring trying to get the balance right, concentrating on not falling. Always worrying that if you do fall, is there a safety net? Sometimes though, it may just be easier to let yourself fall, after all, you won’t know until you try, and who knows, there may just be something or someone there to catch you, that’s got to be worth the risk…

This gorgeously sexy outfit today comes from Promagic. This is the Animal Gacha set and its exclusive at The Kinky Event, which opens later today. The set includes both the dress and sneakers. There are 25 dresses to collect, including 4 rares. I’m wearing no 25. The sneakers are ultra rare and come with a colour change HUD which includes 20 colours.

Bend It

Bend It

There has to be flexibility in all things. For instance just today I had a disagreement with a close friend. I like to think I’m flexible, but actually I found out that I can be quite stubborn. I didn’t really like that about myself. You see, my friend thought he was right, I also thought I was right, and in the end nothing was resolved. We hit a stale mate. I didn’t like that much either. Afterwards, when I had time to think on it, alone, I realised that I hadn’t actually been flexible at all, and that if I didn’t bend just a little bit, the friendship would end. I decided the friendship was too important to me to lose, and so It was time to bend it, be flexible and try and see his point of view. This is not something I find easy. But, we all have to make sacrifices for the greater good.

My awesome pose today comes from SpartinParxPoses, this one is from the
Psychomanteum set. This set of poses is exclusively available righ now at The Underdog Event until 4th November. There are 13 poses in the set, and each one is just as dramatic as the next.

The Point

What, No Skates?

What, No Skates

I never had a pair of roller skates when I was a kid. I remember begging my mum for a pair for numerous years at Christmas time and birthdays. But no. my mum was adamant that both me and my sister were not allowed them. I can’t remember the exact reason why, but knowing my mum, she would have thought they were very dangerous and was worried that we would fall and hurt ourselves. Growing up I remember seeing all my friends playing on their skates, and I just had to sit and watch.

_

My pose today is from Nantra. This is one from the Born To Roll collection, exclusive now at The Liaison Collaborative. There are 6 poses in the pack, plus mirrors. All of them are skateriffic! Get your skates on and get over the The Liaison Collaborative before it closes on 30th October and grab them!

My cute outfit is from Dafnis Clothes. This is the Zuleica outfit and it includes the overalls and the top. The overalls come in 5 standard sizes, 5 fitmesh sizes and fits for Maitreya, Ocacin, Belleza, Slink, TMP and Tonic mesh bodies, with an alpha layer included.

Save Me From Myself

save me main

When I’m about to fall
Somehow you’re always waitin
with your open arms to catch me
You’re gonna save me from myself
from myself, yes
You’re gonna save me from myself

♫♪ Listen ♫♪

This beautiful, sexy lingerie is from Milk Tea. This piece is called Shh! It comes in four colours, as you can see I’m wearing black! Each colour comes in two versions, plain or dots, I’m wearing the plain. Shh! comes in appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and Omega. This item was previously on sale at the birthday round of SaNaRae but as that has now ended you will find it in the Milk Tea main store.

Jewelry comes in many forms, but one thing remains the same, it is always an elegant and beautiful adornment to any body. I have a couple of beautiful pieces to show you. First is the Themis Armlet from Petit Chat. This original mesh arm band is modifiable so you can move and resize as you need. It comes for both right and left arms. There are 6 colours to choose for the stones and two colours of metals in the single packs, but if you buy the full set, there are 6 colours of metals. The Themis Armlet is exclusively available at The Underdog Event until 4th November.

save me closer

My necklace and earrings are from Fortuna. This is the Morticia set. Again it is modify so you can move it and resize as you need to. There are 5 colours for the gems, and you can change the large and small ones individually, and two metal colours. Morticia is also an exclusive at The Underdog Event.

And, we stay at The Underdog Event for my lips and eyes! My lips are the Winnie Lips from TLB (The Little Bat!). They come in appliers for Lelutka, Catwa and Omega and there are 12 colours. My eyes, from Michan are the Miuya eyes. These come in six colours. THey come in both mesh eyes and a Catwa applier too, and on the Catwa HUD, you can change both right and left eyes independently so you can have different colours for each eye. Both the Winnie Lips and Miuya Eyes can be found right now at The Underdog Event until 4th November.

Lastly, but by no means leastly, is the Save Me pose from YN Poses. This is a single female pose and comes in poseball form. You can get this now plus more very sexy poses for men, women and couples, on the YN Poses Marketplace store.

Trick or Treatin’

So I had a couple of kiddies call, early Trick or Treaters! Cheeky little buggers! As it was so early I wasn’t prepared and had no sweeties for them. Although somehow I don’t think it was sweets they were looking for….

 

Trick Or Treatin Edit 2

So, I invited them in for a cup of tea and a chat….

The furniture in the picture today comes from Also Know As. It’s the Oppidan furniture collection. It includes the dining table, the chairs, the lamp and the plant. The chairs come in four different colours and have both masculine and feminine poses in them. The lamp comes in three colours, and the banana tree plant and the table speak for themselves!

The tray of pumpkins on the table is an exclusive item for The Underdog Event. It’s copy and mod so you can use as many as you want and resize them as needed.
