Green Without Envy

She’s fresh, excitiiiiing, so exciting to meeeee…

Green Without Envy

One of the many things I love about looking at people is admiring their unique beauty, blended with their distinctive personalities.  And though I have my own body issues, the one thing I have found is that we are all beautiful to someone.  And sometimes, we’re beautiful to many without anyone really understanding why.

And that’s when it kicks in: dislike, disgust, envy of what another’s perception is of someone that has nothing to do with you…NOTHING. And usually it’s not even about what someone out finds beautiful in someone else that we envy. It’s about finding faults in ourselves that make us envious of others who may have similarities but are loved anyway. The biggest issue we have to address in that is this:  it doesn’t matter who finds us beautiful, fresh, exciting or unique.  If we don’t find the things within ourselves to love, bump and support…it won’t matter who loves us because we never will.

So find that one thing you’re loving about yourself and love it hard.  Be green (fresh) without envy.  It will look so much better on you than anything you could add to yourself to make you more appealing to others. 😉

After the After Party…

After the After Party...

This year has been…quite a year. Many losses, many adventures and misadventures and plenty of quiet losses that no one really knows about.

I’m lucky, I’ve survived a lot more than what I anticipated.  And my battles are far from over.  and though we’ve celebrated many a win, the journey is just beginning.

After the After Party...

This party that was 2019 was one hell of a shindig. And now that we’re sorting the riff-raff out and getting folks gone, I’m ready to wrap up everything and take a bite out of 2020.  I’ve wrapped up all but this mondo burger that while I’m starving I simply don’t have the energy to eat.  Maybe…wrap it up for leftoevers.  Yeah…leftovers indeed.

Diving In To Bakes on Mesh!

…won’t look down, won’t open my eyes…
~ Sia, “Chandelier”

Diving in to Bakes on Mesh!

Helloooo ladies and gents!  So today’s blog is a little bit different because I’m trying out my first ever Bakes on Mesh look! 😮

What is Bakes on Mesh you ask? The simplest answer is: system layers (and system skins especially) are BACK!  The lengthier explanation is: you can now wear up to 60 system layers consisting of a combination of skin (something we’ve always worn under our mesh bodies but some makers removed the face to), tattoo/makeup layers and clothing layers and they will quite literally bake (or flatten for those familiar with layers and Photoshop) into one texture/layer that loads on the mesh head/body of your choice.

An incredibly thorough explanation (with picture guides) can be found here: Get Baked – A Quick Beginners’ Guide to Using Bakes on Mesh. There’s also a good amount of videos that can walk you through it if you prefer video … on youtube!

I have to admit that the journey of finding a decent system skin that fits heads and bodies without having to use corrective implements like nail correcting gloves and sock layers have been a feat in and of itself; especially for darker skin.  Long story short: still looking for dark skins that I REALLY like.

That being said, I did find a link to an ongoing spreadsheet that is showing us what places are now making BoM compatible skins for which heads/bodies so that we can better locate them.  If you see stores missing, contact the owner of the spreadsheet and I’m sure they’ll add them. That can be found here.

Anyway,  I must say I do love this skin from 7 Deadly Skins.  It got just enough highlight without being overly done and fits the already BoM compliant Slink bodies and heads perfectly! So definitely go check them out and hopefully you’ll find something you’ll enjoy as well!

TTFN for now kids…it was WAY WAY past my bedtime when I started writing this and I have since fallen asleep, woke myself up snoring and s’mo!  So now time for me to get unstuck from this crescent thing I’m on (yay coordination! LOL) before Santa finds out I’ve been climbing on things in the window again!! 😛

Mood…

We all have a sickness
That cleverly attaches and multiplies
No matter how we try
We all have someone that digs at us
At least we dig each other
So when sickness turns my ego up
I know you’ll act as a clever medicine
~Incubus, “Dig”
