The Struggle is Real …

I am going to say that this was the most challenging head I ever done.  This is the new Vista head Zoe, that if you all caught the deal .. you could have bought the head and the AO in the same pack.  Personally I went for the AO, but upon arriving to the main store, I was pleasantly surprised to see that you could get an amazing deal of the Zoe head and Zoe AO all in one pack, and if you are a loyal shopper and use the members card you could get a heck of a discount!  Being that I am a loyal member the head was basically a free item for me.  This does depend on your purchases and how many you make, so not all can claim this items as in a sense “free”.

Now this is why I called this post “The Struggle is Real” I have had this head for weeks and while it did come with a shape and a set of skins in the HUD, none of them really fit my taste, no matter how much I played with the shapes and skin combinations .. I just couldn’t find something that would make this head my style.  I am not going to bash this head because frankly there are some really awesome things about this head that I cannot find in other heads, even by beloved head that I am always wearing.   The issue is not in the head its in the lack of skin makers for this new head and I can be patient, which is what happened.  I been all over shopping for skins that were advertised for this head except one place …

UBER! I went to Uber with my lovey and while we were shopping I seen INSOL … omgosh how did I forget this store makes awesome beautiful skins?! So I seen instantly it was for Vista ZOE and I was more than elated and completely snatched up this demo.  When I placed this applier on the head and then added the shape, it was like the light went off in my head and I wanted this look for my ZOE head, and I got it.  There are so many good benefits in this designer.  The Shape was completely free, in the pack, its modifiable and copy! Then on that the body appliers are FREE in the main store.  You have everything you need to make your Vista head gorgeous, like shown in my picture, I did not tweak the head shape at all.  All I did was make the body shape more mine.  But the head is completely untouched.

Now to not be a Debbie downer on my new head, I want to tell you what it is that makes me love this head.  The HUD for the head is so user friendly, I am in awe of it.  The emotions on it are top notch that honestly, I make this my favorite HUD and emotions over all others as of date.  The smiles fit nicely on the head, it doesn’t look over done at all.  I like the fun quirky like auto replay emotions too.  There are SO many of them to choose from.  So while I say this is a Struggle … at the end of the day, I am completely happy with my purchase.  It takes a little time and patience to finally find what you are looking for.  So if you struggled like I did … take a deep breath, and just give it time.

Just Breathe …

Hello my pretty people! I hope you are all having a good day.  I am finally over being sick for the moment, and I decided to do this blog.  A little mix of this and that from different events.  But I have to say at the moment and I really don’t like doing favorites, but this hat/hair combo! Have you ever seen that 80’s movie “Cant Buy Me Love” if you haven’t because this was before your time, then you should check it out! The girl wears a hat and has hair very similar to this.  I am loving it.  I want more hairs like this one ♥ You can find it at N21.

You can also find the pose that I am using at N21 too. This is by Foxcity now I have to admit I have been obsessively buying her poses lately.  They are bento and work extremely well with my body type.  I say this because most poses are based on body type and not all work with every shape.  But amazing as she is, there is a demo box there for you to test out the poses.  This makes shopping and testing out how great this would be for you! I think a lot of you will love the poses ♥

Next up I wanna talk about REWIND, this little event is where you can find items from the past.  Now I don’t mean the noob stuff from 2009, but actual items that designed like they were from Y2k as I do think this was theme of that round.  Apple May Designs has placed out these hot and tight leather pants.  Let me tell you, while I was sitting here posed like this, Caleb happened to log on and I swear that boys tongue hung out his mouth a mile long.  So if I get that kinda approval, I know you girls will too.

Last and not least by any means is another amazing Cae necklace.  This is one of my favorites of her designs.  Its a layer necklace, this is a great opportunity to mention that it comes with a HUD and a ton of options to change up your necklace.  For instance you can make each layer a different color metal, a different gem color, and many different looks.  I can totally get behind anything that allows you to customize your look to what you are wearing.  So really a must have and yes, I say that a lot ♥

ANYHOOOOOOO, you all have fun shopping and get your items and more items and other items from these events because its fun and you all the things in your inventory ♥

The Interview

I was sitting down to take this picture for my blog and I don’t know .. all of a sudden I felt like I was in an interview with someone of importance.  Not that anything I would have to really say is that important.  But the vibe of the picture was just wow.  I really was digging on the feeling of this picture and it just came together.  So how are you lovely people doing today?

There are so many events, sales, and new releases going on! Gosh, I have so much to cover as I discover them.  For instance, Exile has released new hair at the mainstore.  TWO of them! This is one … but omgosh they are adorable.  I swear I repeat the same things over and over about a store that I just love.  But his blonds are killing it! I mean I remember back in the day when it was like ’06 and blonds couldn’t be worn that much unless you wanted to be like barbie with the huge glow.  I couldn’t pull it off.  But slowly over time the color has been coming out so well with designers.  This mid-length hair style is just perfect for those days when you are just wanting to let it hang down and be comfortable.

I then hit up ERRACTIC because that store is having a sale for a bit ALL ITEMS ARE 50% off!! So if you are missing some of your favorite sets or peices, THIS is the time to go over there and hit them up and get all you want.  These things don’t last long.  On that its been packed and took me a bit to get in.  So maybe when you are all reading this you can get in.  I will cross my fingers for you.  I picked up this very pretty dress and a ton of other things while there.  The floral patter on this blue just called to me when I seen it.  So it now totally belongs in my collection of summery/spring like items.

Cae is once again participating in the FaMESHed Round.  Which I have to say the new build is gorgeous.  Despite what people were saying I was loving on the last design too.  The wide open spaces.  But this is nice too.  Easier to navigate for those of you non cammers that don’t get around so well … pfft.  (yep I went there).  But You can find this gorgeous necklace set with earrings at the new round.  I do find it hard to wear earrings, I think its more because my choice of hair styles are that tend to frame my face.  But that doesn’t mean I don’t love them nor that I don’t have them.  I need to start finding more up-do like hairs to showcase the earrings.  But with all of Cae’s items you get a HUD that allows you to change the colors of the stones and the metal and its just perfect for that little bit of accessorizing.

The last thing I want to talk about before I end my blog is Gacha Garden is open and I found the cutest little closet set for girls.  You have your choice of light or dark.  For this look I am using my light set.  You play the machine and you have a chance to win.  I am really enjoying that aesthetic of how it looks and the sweetness the lighter colors give.  If you are interested in the darker one, its more goth with its red and blacks.  So it caters to all! So make sure you head on over and check it out before the event ends.  But you got time don’t worry.

All links are below … and if you wanna follow me or Caleb on flickr… you can find that information on the right 😀
