Hey, y’all! Time for another blog post! It’s been two days since Kustom 9 opened, and since Luxe Box had their December release. If you haven’t tried Luxe Box, you definitely need to! (If your wallet permits.) There are loads of cute items released monthly, from clothes to houses! I’m wearing one of the hairs released on Cecilia (left), which is one of Lamb’s creations. Lamb is an old favorite of mine. I’ve worn her hairs for years, even before Teen Grid merged with the Adult Grid. Be sure you don’t miss out on these great items!

Kustom 9, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite events, is having another fantastic rounds! Villena, Pumpkin, and Vale Koer are easily my three favorite releases. I love the grunge style, and the undone ripped jeans from Villena were perfect. I also decided to pair it with Vale Koer’s new heels to add just a little bit of sophistication to the ensemble. Another store I’m coming to really enjoy is Pumpkin. He’s not new, but I’ve really enjoyed his latest releases!

So, if you know anything about me, it’s probably one of these three things: I’m a blogger, I’m a roleplayer, and I’m from Tennessee. If you watch the news or keep tabs on occurrences around the States, you may have seen that my great state has recently suffered from a tragedy. In East Tennessee, in Sevier County, lies just a fraction of the great Appalachian Mountain Range. The Appalachians are the oldest mountains in the world, and once were the tallest. But millions of years of erosion has rounded them down. Still, they are beautiful and magnificent. God did an amazing job creating those. Unfortunately, that area has been devastated by a wildfire. Over 17,000 acres of forest burned. One of the towns within Sevier County is Gatlinburg, and it was devoured by the fire. Over 1,000 homes and business were damaged and destroyed. So far the death toll stands at 14. My heart ached when the fires began to spread, and I couldn’t stop myself from crying as I watched this beautiful land being ravaged by wildfires. I know everyone who feels a strong connection with Tennessee and Gatlinburg felt the sting, and still do. But the people of Gatlinburg are recovering. Many people from that area have stated that the love and support pouring in is almost overwhelming. It’s times like these where humanity’s potential for goodness shines through. It’s sad it takes times like this for it to really show. If anyone would be willing to donate, please click here!

❥ It’s just me, myself and I

heathens_0011

Oh, it’s just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
‘Cause I got me for life

Oh, I don’t need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

Hey, y’all! This is going to be a catch up post! I haven’t blogged since September, but that’s just because I’ve been busy with real life and other Second Life things. So this post is going to contain items from older Uber and Kustom9 rounds, along with newer items! Lately I have been loving Villena’s releases. I was a big fan of her stuff years back, and I still have a lot of her older mesh models. I was suuuper happy when I saw her return earlier this year, and I’ve bought something from almost every release since. Her clothing is high quality, and I rarely ever need to even use my alpha HUD! That can’t be said for many other stores, unfortunately.

In my last blog post I had gotten a new skin for my alt, Briony. But after some unsettling discoveries and a very cute release at Tres Chic, I have switched to Milan’s new skin! Tai is a soft skin with gentle features. It’s perfect if you’re trying to go for the innocent look, but of course I had to grunge it up a little bit with dark lipstick that came along with this applier, and some fabulous eyeliner from Suicidal Unborn! Can I just take a moment to relish in the fact that Eleanor is finally making Fiore appliers? Her make up is fantastic, and I was getting jealous of Catwa and LeLutka for having so much!

With everything that’s going on in the world I think it’s important that we all remember that we must be kind to one another. Everyone has different opinions. Not everyone will agree with your views. If they don’t believe in what you believe in? It’s okay. Differences and diversity make the world go ’round. Politics, religion, marriage, etc. are topics that have been really touchy with a lot of people here lately. I’ll admit, even I haven’t liked talking about them out of fear of being attacked or alienated. I’m afraid of speaking up because I’m scared of being condemned, and I feel that there is already so much fighting going on. After this brutal election I just want peace, however I also know I need to find my courage. But if I keep going on this is going to be a drawn-out post, so here are the credits!

❥ Mustang kids

29880842002_6691bed143_b

The mustang kids are out
Rolling over hills and the roundabouts
White line, motorcade
Sweeter than your baby face

Small town gang got nothing to do
We got guns, got drugs, got the sun and the moon
We got big city plans but it always rains
And the sheriff is a crook and knows me by name

I should just change my blog’s name to Skye’s Monthly Blog. That seems to be about the length of time it takes me to actually get around to writing one of these up. But I can’t help it! Especially now that my second job has started and I’m even busier, plus most of my free time is still dedicated to roleplay. But anyway, as y’all know, Uber and N21 opened within the last week, and like always they did not disappoint. There’s a wide variety of clothes and decor for everyone! And better yet, people are making things for autumn, my favorite time of the year! Hoodies, leggings, boots, and over-sized shirts are life. I can’t get over Coco’s outfit she released for Uber. It’s purrrrfect for Bri, and it looked fantastic on her! I also got a new skin for Briony, which would be Medusa from L’Etre. As soon as I saw the release last weekend I fell in love. I went to Demo it and it was great, so I definitely bought it. I was stuck with a dilemma, though! The eyeliner I had bought for it was clipping! I had tried everything I knew to do to fix it, but nothing seemed to fix it! So I eventually contacted one of L’Etre’s CSR’s and she said that no one else had been having this issue and I would need to contact Sanya, the owner of Fiore, so I did. She advised me to check my eye depth and make sure it was at 0. Sure enough, my eye depth was set to, like, 42. So ladies, if you have eye shadow clipping issues, make sure your eye depth is set to 0!

As I stated in my last blog post, the September and October months are busy for me. I work seasonally at a haunted house, which opened up early September. This year is apparently a really good year for me, because my boss has been telling me that I’ve had several people compliment my acting and that scene. I contort my back sometimes, and a pair of customers didn’t believe that I was doing it on my own. So they checked for strings, and they told my boss they were shocked when they didn’t find any! Plus I’ve got some pretty intense make up this year, so that probably helps too. I told you guys I’d be posting a couple pictures on Flickr, but instead I’ll be posting a selfie here on my blog. There’s a prosthetic heart on my chest which was hand made by my make up artist, and the idea belongs to one of my other bosses. Both are brilliantly creative and horrifying when it comes to make up and bringing a character alive. But the heart is connected to a tube that runs down my body in the hospital gown, and I can pump it at my side with a blood pressure bump. It’s fucking gross and amazing. But the selfie is below, so if you don’t have the stomach for blood and gore, scroll fast! Credits for this post are below the picture.

❥ Black velvet

29217701312_e67fa775ef_b

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama’s dancin’ with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin’ like molasses in the sky
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

It’s been a little over a month since my last blog post, which I apologize for. I’ve just been busy with work and family here lately. I’ve got another post about Uber today, as well as the line that was just released from Ison and Rowne. They collaborated together for this, and the results are fabulous! The clothes are Maitreya body exclusive, so be sure you’re using the right body if you buy them. I’m using my alternate account Bri in this picture again to show what Seul released at Uber – a super cute set that just works so well with my alt. The style I use for her is a nu-goth and grunge mix type, so it was pretty perfect! I was hoping that the bomber jacket would come with a pose to keep the arms back where they should be, but unfortunately it did not. You’ll need to find a pose that keeps your arms down at your sides or use a pose HUD like I did!

So if you’re a fall and Halloween lover like me, you’re probably beginning to feel the excitement of the approaching season. The weather is starting to cool (slowly, because the south can’t make up its mind), American football has started, and that feeling is returning. You can’t describe the feeling, but you know what feeling I’m talking about if you’re as passionate about the autumn time as me. If you’ve been following my blog since the beginning or my Flickr, you may have seen a few pictures of my real life self covered in latex, make up, and blood. I work seasonally at a haunted house, and those a pictures from the last three years I’ve been there. This will be my fourth, and I’m super excited about it! This year they have me back in the morgue, where I was last year. They kept me there because, according to them, I did an amazing job last year and they wanted me back in. So y’all will probably see pictures similar to last year. It just all depends!

❥ And we’ll never be royals

27938215753_681a90bd44_b

I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I’m not proud of my address,
In a torn-up town, no postcode envy

And we’ll never be royals.
It don’t run in our blood,
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler,
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

Asldkjfalskdjfw. Werlkasd. Aldkawow. Wowwowowowowowowow. FUCK.

And that right there is my reaction to this round of Uber. Holy shit, guys. This round is sooooo good! If you haven’t yet been, get your booty down there. It’s jam packed with cute clothes, pretty hair, awesome shoes, and amazing decor! I bought so much. I probably bought too much. (JK.) Like, my mom would probably spank me if she knew how much money I just spent at Uber. But guys, I could not stop myself. I got so much stuff that I’ve decided to use two of my characters for this blog post, which I’ve never done before. I’ll get to the credits shortly, there’s just something else I have to touch on.

So, if you read my previous blog post ❥ Rejuvenating my blog: Advice column?, you would know that I’ve been trying to find something to give my blog an edge, to make it different from every other blog out there. Unfortunately, most of the feedback I got about adding an advice column to my blog was negative. Which sucks, because I do like to help people. But I’ve been learning the hard way here lately that I can’t always help everyone, especially those who don’t want to be helped or have no interest in changing. It’s tough, but I’m sure everyone has to go through it eventually. Anyway, until I find out what it is that I want to add to my blog, then I’ll just be doing my usual mini rants, event comments and credits. If you’ve got any suggestions or tips, feel free to let me know! But onto the credits:

❥ Rejuvenating my blog: Advice column?

28265961102_fb9a3ed279_b

Good morning, y’all! I’ve been thinking a lot here lately, and I’ve been reading a lot as well. I’ve been browsing through Flickr and looking at pictures, reading blog posts, reading through some of the articles on SL Blogger Support’s website, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just not doing enough on my blog. I saw a lot of great tips on blogger support’s site, like sharing to social media and niching. I read the interview between Daria (lildaria resident) and Canary Beck. Daria had mentioned how in the beginning, she hadn’t gotten a lot of views, but then she asked herself, “Why would anyone read my blog? What am I offering that will make them want to come back to my blog? And the answer was…nothing!” That’s pretty much how it is for me with my blog. What is really special about my blog? Nothing really. I write about events, sometimes throw in some personal views and opinions, then I give the credits at the end. It’s like every other basic blog. Which is why I’m thinking about adding an advice column!

Granted, I’m not Gandhi or Confucius or Jesus or Martin Luther King Jr. But I have had a lot of my friends in real life and Second Life come to me for my opinions and my advice on an issue or a worldly event. 2016 has been a year of lessons. I’ve learned who I can and can’t trust, what type of people I need to look for in friendship, who I need to remove from my life, what I deserve out of a romantic partner, and I’ve learned more about how to appropriately react to hate, lies, and rumors. These lessons have been hard. They have been painful. These are issues I’ve had to face in real life as well as Second Life that have made me want to completely shut the world out, to become closed off and bitter and hateful. But I haven’t allowed myself to do that because that’s not who I am. I am a good person. I am compassionate. I am caring. I am forgiving. I am kind. I am just. I try to find the best in everyone. But I’m also spoiled, tempered, lazy, passive aggressive, and I do care what people think of me too much sometimes. What I am not is hateful. I’m not cold. I’m not closed off. I’m not a compulsive liar, nor am I disrespectful, and I try not to pass judgement on someone before getting to know them. I believe it’s important to know who you really are, so that when push comes to shove, you can stand firm and keep your chin raised.

If I were to start an advice column with my blog, how many of you would be interested in it? How many would submit questions or situations they’d like advice on? If you would be interested or think it would be a good idea, please leave a comment on this blog, on the Flickr picture, or you can IM me inworld! Now onto the credits:
