Crisis Of Confidence

Crisis Of Confidence (2)

This week I have had a major crisis of confidence. Those of you that follow and read my blog will see there have been no posts for several days. This is because I appear to have lost the ability to take a half decent photo.

This happened to me once before, last year, and I had some advice from some very dear friends of mine telling me I should take a break, then come back to it after a while. At that time it worked. This time it has taken me a while.

It has made me wonder if I should give up with my blog and photography. I’ve done some real soul searching, and I decided that I should only give up if I don’t want to get any better. So as I strive to learn how to take better pictures, I am continuing as I did before. Besides, I don’t do anything else in my Second Life, so If I did give up, I would have no reason to come here.

That plus the fact I love telling you about all the awesome goodies available to you…..

Crisis Of Confidence

First up today I have this gorgeous Top and Pants from Haus of Ito. The Kate top and Masey pants both come in fits for Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus and Maitreya. Both come in 7 colours plus gold or silver options for the metal bits. You can get these now until 29th March at the Level Up event.

My Hair is from Tameless Hair and Avatars. This is the Gae hair and comes with lots and lots of colour options. One of a number of styles released on promo recently at the Tameless Mainstore.

I was at Cosmopolitan recently and picked up this lovely necklace from Codex. This is the Allizee necklace and it comes with a colour change HUD, there are 3 colours of metals and 4 colours for the gems, and the HUD also has a resize feature. Cosmopolitan runs until 25th March.

My pose is from Something New. This from the Feel Her Pose set. There are four poses in the set and it is exclusively available at the Spoonful Of Sugar Event which raises money for Doctors Without Borders. Spoonful of Sugar runs until 1st April.

My new skin is from Dulce Secrets. This is the Chai Skin and it’s available until 26th March at the Skin Fair 2017. There are lots of options for make up, brows and freckles, I’m wearing option 1 with blonde brows and freckles.

Also from the Skin Fair is my shape and eyes from Mesange. This is the Tilda shape for Catwa Bento heads one of a selection of new shapes from Mesange released at the fair. Each shape has a pair of Mesange eyes included, the TIlda shape comes with the Percy Eyes #1. The shapes are modify and there is a style card included so you can tweak away to get the look you want. I’m just wearing it straight out the box with no tweaks!

A Spoonful Of Elegance

“Elegance is not about being noticed, it is about being remembered”

sos-semi-precious-vainly-chic

You will both be noticed and remembered with my outfit today, which combines elegance and beauty with some of the things available at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival. The festival is a fund raiser benefiting Doctors without Borders/Medicines Sans Frontieres. You can read more about it HERE .
Firstly, from Posh Pixels is the very elegant Garbo Gown in Ocean. It comes in 5 std sizes and there is an alpha layer too so can be worn with both mesh and classic bodies. Pam Nightshadow of Posh Pixels is fast becoming one of my favorite designers, she never disappoints with her designs, and this gown is no exception. I love the colours, its blue, and green and purple all in one!

To go with this beautiful dress I have chosen this equally beautiful jewelry set from Semi Precious. The set consists of a bracelet for both left and right wrists, earrings and necklace. There is a HUD that you can use to resize. and also change the colours of both the stones and metals.

TGIF!

shopping-maiin

Thank goodness it’s Friday! It’s been a long hard week in both worlds for me! So, what better way is there to wind down for the weekend with a bit of relaxing retail therapy?

Right now is a great time for shopping in SL with so many great events going on. I’ve a few things for you from a couple of those events right here!

First of we have the Abbie outfit from POSH Pixels at Marvelous Monthly. The outfit includes jeans, top and jacket. There is a colour change HUD for the top and jacket shoulder pads, and a separate one for the jeans. Comes in all the usual sizes. Perfect for a day shopping or an evening out, or both! And, don’t forget the flash sale going on right now at POSH Pixels, you can read about in my post HERE.

Staying at Marvelous I have these gorgeous nails from diva! The Neon Nails applier is for Slink nails and has 8 different choices of colour. Click HERE to see a closeup of the nails.

My cute glasses are from Ecko. The Susan Glasses. They come in 8 different colours and are resizable. Essential for that ‘Intellectual’ look. Hmm… thinking about it maybe more the Ugly Betty look in my case!

shopping1

A brand new event opened today. The Spoonful Of Sugar Festival. The festival is a fund raiser benefiting Doctors without Borders/Medicines Sans Frontieres. You can read more about it HERE.

The first item I have to show you is my cute shopping bag from Cazimi. This is the Rice Bag Tote. It comes with a HUD with 4 different designs via a HUD and also you can resize via the HUD. It has hold animations for both right and left hands, or like i did you can edit it to fit with any other pose you have.

shopping-2

My boots are also from the festival. These are from Baby Monkey. The Tiggie Boots come in two packs, the basics pack, which I have, comes in 10 Essential colours changed with a HUD. There is also an add on pack with a HUD for additional colours. They are fitting for classic avi’s but I have just removed my feet from my Maitreya Lara body and no-one is any the wiser. Although, they are now ‘cos I just told you!

shopping-3

Last for today from the Spoonful of Sugar Festival is my beautiful necklace. This is from Jinx and is a RARE item in the exclusive gacha collection of necklaces made for the event. The collection is called Spoonful of…….The one I’m wearing is Spoonful of Pearls. There are 9 commons and 2 rares and there is also a HUD for changing colours. I’ve included the gacha key below. It’s worth noted that 100% of the proceeds of this collection will be donated to Doctors without Borders/Medicines Sans Frontieres.
