I have been gone for a little while, and it seems that Caleb’s blogs have been taking over. But I am finding out things about myself. I need to take a step back and reevaluate what my blogging means to me. Its my creative outlet. Its a place that I want to post my thoughts and show off the things I personally like in my Second Life world. Which is what I am going to start doing now. I love the creators that sponsor me. They are the ones that helped keep me motivated. Which makes what I am about to say one of the most hardest things I had ever done. I sent out notecards to creators, I explained that while I love blogging, I needed to take some time to step back and reevaluate what I wanted from blogging. Keep in mind I have been blogging for approximately 6 years now straight (not on this blog .. as I now share this with my husband) and I never really took a break for me to clear my head. With that being said, I realized that my blogging skills have started looking the same. I was not happy with what I was doing anymore. It kills me to give up spaces that I have worked so hard to obtain you know. NOT because the items come to me. But because they are brands that I love and support. They are business people and I get this. Which shocked me when I turned in my cards that I needed to give my space to someone that deserved it right now … I got nothing but love and support! THESE are the people that make me happy and keep me going and motivate me to keep going. Which meant taking a little time for myself. Those creators did not give up on me and I will not give up on them. So while some of them are not my sponsors, I will continue to purchase and blog their items. By not having as many creators that I have a contract with, I am seeing that I am free to blog other stores in my inventory at a freer liberty. This is not to say that anyone I was blogging for was a tyrant. This is not the case. I will just say I took on more than I can chew for my own good. I don’t have as much time on my hands anymore. I have a wonderful hubby and a family that is growing. I have other things in my life now that make me happy too! … OK rambling … I am just saying that I found a new look on my blogging life and I want to try something new. It never hurts to try something different!
New in my world is LAQ, I am in love with her heads. I wear them all the time as I find they are the best ones for my personal style. I like the looks, the HUD .. and how easy it is to use. Recently LAQ went under some construction to their heads and updated ALL of them! This was a big project, but at what cost you are asking? Well no cost the customers! I say it like this because now you only have to purchase ONE hud … and your head choice. This HUD works with ALL heads. This cuts the cost of heads from 5k to a modest 1.5k per head. Which is a head lovers dream. This means I can purchase ALL the heads that are updated and catch up on owning them all for WAY less. Believe me this is a great deal specially for bloggers like me. We are looking to save a little money and yet keep our looks different. Faces are all the rage and I want them all. Sooo now I can have them all at a great deal. BY the way I am blogging SANDY the newest face of the LAQ family. You can find her at UBER this round. Opened on the 25th of June. With her is make up, lashes, and other cute things that will complete your look. I am sporting all the items that are LAQ for this head. Want to know what they are just look in the itemized list of things below! Disclaimer .. I did mod the shape to my body style, the face was barely touched.
I have decided that Cae and Just Because will remain showing up in my blogs because … WELP they are some of my favorite designers on the grid. They have both showed me such love and support through my years of blogging I couldn’t have asked for better creators in my life. Just Because is currently at UBER with this gorgeous dress. I just died when I seen the WIP that was placed on the flickrs as a tease for us to look at. The details are so cute with the tiny flowers and I realized yea … I need this dress in my life. I recommend the fatpack because you get so many options on how to style this dress and you get the exclusive patterns that are only found in the pack. I am pairing this with my Cae accessories you can find at FaMESHed which happened to open today! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Flamingos. So this was something that I personally wanted so bad. There are earrings too but as you can see my fluffy hair was not about to let me wear that! BUT the necklace is to die for. Two cute birds encased in a circle. I needed them in my life. Next to the necklace was the amazing glasses I am wearing. I really like how these frames fit. I also like the freedom of styling them on top of the head too as that is where I tend to hide my glasses the most. Its a horrid trait as they normally get stuck in my hair, but this is SL and I am not ripping my hairs out here!! Which is fantastic for me ♥
One more UBER thing for me is the hair! O M G the hair. This fluffy gorgeous hair is all the rage in my books right now. The curly mess that sits on my head is one of my new favorites, its short and all over the place and I think my favorite of the packs are the Ombres I am adoring the darker roots that flow down to a different color of your choice. Well the choice of what is on the HUD … but either way is perfect in my opinion. The whispy strands and the life this hair style brings is so fun and adorable. I really do enjoy this style of hair. So make sure you try the demo and try out all the colors each one is unique in its own way and how they look on the style is fun and playful!
OK … long post over. If you like these items. Check them out below, I have all of them listed. When you head over to the events make sure to look at the other designers too, I do believe there is something for everyone. And have fun with your looks. And don’t be scared to try something new ♥
