The Asylum

Today, an asylum is a place of refuge and protection but I’m finding myself outside the more old-fashioned kind of asylum and it’s creepy! Refuge is participating in the October round of The Liaison Collaborative with the Asylum Backdrop and in collaboration with Zombie Suicide they are also offering three fun friends poses to go with it! I’m only showing the backdrop today so make sure you check this item out over at TLC.

I’m early showing the YAKIM tattoo from Kira for the upcoming round of Dubai. It just fits so well in this picture, I had to! The event opens 12 PM on October 20th, make a note! 😉

If you didn’t already know, the Full Goatee Grooming Series by Magnificent lets you choose between several styles of goatee, not only the one I’m showing here. And it’s easy too, just wear the beard and stache, they’re unrigged so you can adjust it to fit your head perfectly. Add the HUD and choose your style as well as the color and shine.

Released around this time last year, The Witch Hunter Hat by BONDI. Did you miss it? You can find it in the BONDI mainstore or marketplace. Halloween style tip: Wear it with the black Hart Vest from Deadwool. Super cool. I wanted to show off the tattoo this time so I found it also looks good together with the Trench Coat by WAZ and probably most duster coats too.

La Petite Vie keeps taking me to the most beautiful places with their builds and this time we’re in the historical city of Campeche, Mexico. La Petite Vie is participating in Tlalli: The Fair Around The World – Mexico with the Campeche backdrops, or rather, they are beautifully detailed filler builds. The extra bonus about these builds is you get texture changer HUDs for the exterior walls of both builds so you can create a whole street of colorful Mexican houses if you want to! Backdrop 1 is 17 LI and Backdrop 2 is 28. The builds are Copy / Modify.

Also at Tlalli, dudes and ladies, is the beautiful Undead tattoo by TAOX TATTOO and yes it’s unisex. It comes in three intensities, all the right appliers and BoM layers too.

BONDI is at The Arcade with The Outlaws glasses gacha. Add a touch of post apocalytic punk to your glasses collection. Each pair of glasses in The Outlaws collection come with a HUD to turn blinders on or off and adjust the lens opacity.

To Us

And then
my soul saw you

for you.”

And now for the “just because” part. I sometimes do unsponsored blog posts, just because, but it’s been a while now since I did that. Reading Victoria James’ blog post Isn’t It Romantic the other day inspired me to do one again myself. Well, it’s semi just because at least. I found so much stuff I liked at this round of TMD and I’d like to share it with you.

Hello 2020!

As we say good bye 2019 I’m thinking about what a year it’s been for me, in “both lives”. Well, I’m one who doesn’t separate the two, but I’m not going to talk about that right now.

What a year it’s been! I’ve only two years as a resident; a year and a half ago I started taking pictures and getting familiar with the viewer camera tools. I did a couple of blog post at the end of 2018, just for fun. Then in the beginning of 2019 I decided I wanted to give blogging a serious go so I found a couple of sponsors that were willing to give a total newbie a chance and the ball started rolling.

After seeing each other online for 8 months, M and I met up and went on vacation together in June. It was wonderful and the most significant thing that happened in my life in 2019 but I’m not going to talk more about that here.

In August I celebrated reaching 1K followers by hosting a photo contest, which was awesome fun for me and I got nothing but positive feedback from those who participated.

Blogging takes hard work and dedication, from the start. I pride myself with having a quality blog and a high Flickr engagement. What’s the use of having 5K followers if you’re not engaging them? Will they remember your picture? Will they notice the brand you’re showcasing? Will they read your blog? Click on that Slurl? No, no, no and no. Ok, now I got derailed for a bit. Or maybe not, because..

In October I was nominated for The Bloggies. Being nominated was a great honour and it told me that I had managed to successfully enter the SL blogosphere and that my blogging was being appreciated by others. To those who nominated me, I’m sending a big big thank you your way.

So what’s in store for 2020? There’s a trip to the US in the very near future. I’ll of course continue blogging and I’m sticking to my all-round style because I love the freedom it gives me, the versatility. Every product is different, every picture lives its own life and sometimes it has a story to tell. What else? Whatever happens, happens. I’m approaching the new year with a positive mindset and my dreams and hopes for the future intact. I truly hope you can say the same. If not, then I wish 2020 is the year of positive change for you. Make it so.

Oh, and today I’m blogging the 2020 Photo Booth by CHEZ MOI! A perfect addition to any New Year’s party, with single, friends and couple poses ready for your guests to take memorable pictures. You can find it at their mainstore and marketplace! And we’re looking mighty fine, wearing the Gage Tuxedo by Lapointe & Bastchild and the Laura Gown by Allure Couture.
