Beauty Bar Disaster…

Beauty Bar Disaster #Foxcitychallenge3
Dena and I took a friends advice and went to visit what she said was the best salon in Second Life called the Beauty Bar ~ well as it was Valentines Day coming up along we went and .as you can see word of mouth is not always best…Giggling as you can see ♥ We did, however, have a great time while we waited and waited and waited ~ looks like the one on the left of Dena waited way longer than we did ~ and that poor drunk girl with all the free booze she just slid off the chair into the bowl ~ guess she will have a very wet bum along with a nasty hangover…Dena was surprised watching our manicurist turn into Mr. Bones as he was hot, hunky and handsome when we both sat down ~ since I am the impatient one, got up chose my own polish and did my own nails…looks like the Beauty Bar will not be getting any repeat business in the future as it looks DEAD♥♥♥

Dena and I had a blast putting this blog post together for the #FOXCITYCHALLENGE3, first time for us to try our hand with a challenge and hey even if we don’t win we had fun♥  Shot at my own using Foxcity’s latest photo booth Pink Bar along with the Foxcity Galentine Day Pose & Mani #7 pose ~ if you like to check out all the entries click HERE

One second…

One Second

Give me just one second to arrange myself and gather my thoughts ~ its Friday am still dealing in RL with my sinuses that has been ongoing, just not gonna whine but it is draining and not me but we all have stuff that we are dealing with in the RL and try not to let my blogging be affected ~ one of my friends outside of SL is amazed that after 10 years am still coming in here every day ~ thinking even if I was not blogging am almost 99% positive that I would be in SL every day ~ why not?  Especially now with the fact am retired, I have time to really explore and enjoy what Second Life has to offer ~ all the creativity in here amazes me ~ especially how far clothes have come ~ look at this top and panties am wearing from Sn@tch ~ have been such a longtime fan of their clothes and it is always great to see stores that I remember 10 years ago still here and still looking fresh, trendy and very popular ♥  Ivey offers huds with both the Izara Top and That Thong both items are separate I just love mixing and matching giving you an idea of how to wear ~ Sn@tch has a lot to offer, if you have not made it over there you should, what I love is how Ivey has kept the fishing for outfit ongoing ~ along with the Lucky boards and the store is HUGE with a variety of items to appeal to most ~ so grab this TAXI and wander over to Sn@tch taking time to look, fish and along with trying on demos ♥♥ For me am gonna take a short  break then come back with some more great items for you ♥ here is your quote

Lay back and…

The night is almost over as you look out the windows and what a perfect time to relax as all is quiet in the night ~ you light the candles as you love the darkness only lit by candles ~ grab a nice cold glass of your favorite red wine ~ the tub fills with the scents of lavender from the sprinkling of bath salts ~ steam starts to rise up from the tub and now is the time to just step in and ease your body in ~ lay back your head and listen to the radio that is playing in the background and just enjoy…

Stuff2
Enjoying the solitude 

oh you noticed 2 wine glasses well maybe your special someone is joining you or maybe it is just xtra glass when you finish first ~ scattered bath petals give you that special feeling even if you scattered them ~ so lay your head back, reach over and grab the glass of wine, close your eyes, take that first sip and breath a nice sigh of relief ~ music soothes your soul and all your day just escapes as you enjoy the warm water ~ yes lose yourself ♥

Thinking outside – box…

Oh am sure so many bloggers and photographers do not just look at a prop or pose without thinking of what other possibilities you can use it for ~ like always suggesting just because it says male or female poses does not mean you cannot use them ~ in using the “Photobomb” pose by Image Essentials I used it for a Formal pose with hubby and myself ~ because he does not have a mesh head the expression that should be seen is not but I did also decide to use a little bit of magic on his hand ~ let me show you the Ad pic and then show you how I used it ~

Photobv1a
Original

At first I thought it might of been the middle finger but twisting myself around and looking at my own fingers am like ha ha its not…but the tongue oh it is there now will just wait till hubby gets his Bento head so umm ok never mind *blushing* Now this is what I did with that pose…

Photobombv1
Formal Pose 

We needed a new formal pic of both of us and this pose just worked great ~ with a little help from some fairy lighted curtains ~ and I even went a little farther so I could put it in my profile and give Hubby one for his ~

Formal1
Sten and Me

Taking a casual pose and turning it to what I like a formal portrait ~ you just never know how things will turn out ~ again am sure this is nothing new for anyone but just suggesting taking different looks at a pose ~ but stick around as Kay Weston of Image Essentials created another cute pose called “Tortoise and the Hare” that is exclusive for the Fable Fair that again my sexy sweet hubby helped with that one as well…I know “awwwwww”  till then remember life is too short to hate ~ peace out♥

I have been Blessed ~ Good Friday

Today is Good Friday ~ the day that Christians all over the world remember this is a day to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ ~ for me and maybe others I have to take a moment and think of things and how blessed I am ~ from having a place to live and having rl friends as well as so many sl friends ..a few days ago a friend of a friend wanted to do a photo shoot with 6 different images and scenes, which of course I said yes and met with the client to discuss her vision of what was entailed ~ right away am like wow how blessed and cool is this to challenge myself to set up these scenes ~ I accepted this and let my mind start conceiving the ideas how to achieve this ~ when I first set up the scene that she described “curtains, candles and romantic am thinking oooh ok I have these uber rich looking velvet curtains and couple candles yet when I set it up just fell flat was not at all what I had seen in my mind but…another blogger had posted using some fairy light curtains that am like YESSS that is what I want  ~ so off I went to find more candles and the curtains ~ little scrambling as the candles were a gacha but was gonna do what I could to get them and 2 pulls later I was successful ~ the fairy curtains are from +Half-Deer+, which I grabbed off Marketplace ~ the idea was really coming together now and my eyes finally saw what was in my mind…now the client *Jen* gave me permission to post this image which I will say thank you for letting me do this…and here is the result JenCurt2

For me this is romantic and a little erotic all combined to give her that look she wanted…and if you are looking for that outfit which made me rush over to Collabor88 and grab it from Erratic to do my own recreation of this scene as well go to their mainstore ~ am pleased that the client absolutely loved this and for myself that I took this challenge along with the results gives me great satisfaction as well…

 

One of the other ideas she had was “naughty school girl” that was also fun to get ideas and look for props most I had already in my inventory ~ the entire composition really turned out well and again you be the judge as the image below

JenSch

Jen took a couple of things from Blueberry from the top and the skirt and matched them with those shoes I just had to have that was from fri.day  also at Collab ~ the props were collections of things from either Marketplace or Gachas ~ but the overall look for me did say “naughty school girl” 

Might not be the post you expected being Good Friday but I thank the client “Jen” blessed me with the opportunity to explore my creativity and my talents ~ thank you to those that read and for sticking around ~ May each of you I wish a very blessed Friday ~ HUGZZ
