#169

Hello again readers! For this post I am naming it #169, which is how many blogs ive done thus far under my own blog!. I have done hundreds in the several years since I started blogging but those are unfortunately lost as I was on shared blogs which are now defunct. Life goes on.

Just Designs has released a dress, Jacqui, to their mainstore and holy moley do I love it!. Beautiful texturing, versatile with a seperate bolero, for when you’re chilly(ha!) and the main dress is of course the sleeveless. Jacqui fits Maitreya Lara, SLink Hourglass/Physique, Belleeza Venus/Isis/Freya. For this post, im wearing my SLink Hourglass body. She is also materials enabled(I didn’t do it for the post). Have a look below!.

I’m still experimenting with different backgrounds for my blog photos. I like my current direction with it and I hope you all do to.

Hello readers! I recently changed my domain name from Mimosa Hearts to my name Prue Genira for two main reasons. The first one is that I never really cared all that much for the mimosa hearts name, I was literally drinking a mimosa, looked through the glass and saw a poster on my wall that had a heart in it and BOOM, blog is named. When I decided it was not what I liked, I purchased an official domain with my name and a dot com at the end, which was awesome and it covered up the original site name but I took a long hiatus from blogging so it was pointless to pay for it anymore. It then reverted back and i’ve since hated it again. The second reason was I worked in a new site banner(for ages) to make it a glass text with liquid inside, only to realize later it look like pee in it. That sealed it for me, lol!. I moved all my blogs over to this site and deleted Mimosa Hearts for good. 

I then thought of a site tagline and ended up using one of those word generators with a ton of stuff in it and Prue’s Second Wig popped up and I HAD to have that as my site title and my SL sister agreed. It just felt funny, cute and completely me. Thank you to the ones who have updated me in your blog rolls and for those who haven’t, please do!. Now onto the main part of this post.

Uber has an exciting new round full of items you can’t pass up. For me that was this ISON off shoulder sweater and suede skirt duo. The textures on these look so perfect that you could almost imagine how they feel to the touch(I never said I was normal).

When I was thinking of what I could pair with this ISON ensemble, I knew it had to be TRUTH’s Tyne; I’ve been after a messy, shorter hair style for awhile now and this sure fits the bill. I don’t normally purchase browns, but decided I would change things up and im glad I did.

To finish out this look I dropped into Insol and grabbed this lollipop glossy lip applier. It has six glossy shades to choose from, but I went with the nude shade. My eye makeup is from Pink Fuel, from the Liya release. I like the combined look.

Hello again gentle readers.

I asked you all on Flickr what you thought about the Insol Mia applier on my Catwa head Kori and it was an overwhelming agreement that I should buy her, so I went and nabbed her from TRÈS CHIC. This is my first ever purchase from Insol and it was the best i’ve made in awhile. My favorite piece of this applier is the nose, because its so darn cute and creates a similar likeness to my RL nose. 

I’m so happy fall is officially here!. The crisp air, the color changing leaves and pumpkin spice!. Yes, im that basic bitch. In my case though, I prefer to call it, Prupkin Spice(see what I did there?).

Pink Fuel-Liya

Hello again gentle readers!. Two blogs within a span of a day? WHAT?!

29744719240_300a27dcc3_z

Pink Fuel has released a brand new applier for Catwa heads called Liya and I would be liya’n to you if I didn’t tell you how much I love her. She comes in all current skin tones and features 11 Eyeshadows, 8 Eyebrows (No-Eyebrow included), 5 Eyebrow Tattoos, 19-21 Lipsticks: Glosses and Mattes (depending on skintone), No Blush and Contoured face shading variations, Freckles, Shaved Brow Options and Monolid and Creased Eye Version. For my post, im wearing the contoured version on Kori, as I love the depth it gives.

The HUD(which is a bit blurry, sorry guys!) is simple to use, everything is easily accessible. This applier is incredibly versatile, as is all of Mochi’s work. This chic is crazy talented!.

I also wanted to take a piece of this post and dedicate it to Sassy’s Blog Post about sharing your blog link, Flickr photos etc, on that brand’s social media or Flickr to essentially cross-promote and help the brand drive up its sales by seeing various items used in different ways; showing how versatile that brands item(s) can be when different bloggers put their own touches on its use such as photography style and artistic direction. I think this is a fabulous idea and will be doing this from now on. Read the post for yourself to determine if its something you yourself as a blogger, would like to participate in.

Baiastice @ Salem

Hello gentle readers, don’t you look smashing today.

Secrets make you sick

Hello gentle readers. This post won’t be on fashion, but on being part of the SLSecrets Week #422. There’s a few things I would like to address in this post, so please, bear with me.

The first thing I would like to say, is you’re right; I put my cart before my horse. I got caught up in all the favorites I was receiving on my Flickr page and it built up my confidence to where I wanted to expand, to be able to provide a photography service. What you do not have right however, is why. In the Pile Up groups all over flickr, I can only do so much to expand my experiences and working with clients gives me more of the interaction I crave. You see, I can pile up a million photos, but without actual experience in delivering what somebody really wants, im just doing the same old thing, over and over.  I never once claimed to be amazing, spectacular, terrific or even good. I think im “ok” and im still learning. We all start somewhere, this is where im starting. You’re not wrong, I need more experience, and for me, thats learning it MY way, not on somebody elses work that they teach you and you regurgitate. What’s wrong with just being supportive that this is my journey and not yours? 

If you really felt that I needed more paintshop skills, why not just tell me? Its not an opinion that I don’t share. I’m not running around with SL Photographer listed above my head and claiming to be the very best out there. So why make a SLSecret about it?. Do you really need to drag a bitch?. Unless your goal wasn’t to provide anything constructive, but to simply deconstruct, humiliate and degrade me. I’m not a child, I can handle constructive criticism and concern but what I can not handle however, is a coward. Yes you are a coward. You attack me through a website I haven’t visited in years, that protects the person who wants to spread vile, nasty things about others and for that, you forfeit any decency I could see in you as a human being. I had to be told by a total stranger through Flickr about the post. Man was that a wonderful feeling reading that!. Made me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. 

I especially LOVED reading the few comments directed towards me. None of you, have ever said anything to me about it and if its so important to mention it there, why not mention it to me? Is it because that makes you look bad?. Guess so. If you look through my Flickr stream, you would see I have never over edited a fashion post, skin review, anything. I would never do that as it goes against my blogging philosophy. Adding in that filter over top my last post(Bubble Pop) was hard enough to convince myself to do. Constructive criticism is one thing, but when you have such a strong opinion and chose to air it to a site like SLSecrets, instead of to that person, you are a coward also. If it means that much to you, message me and lets talk about it like adults, until then, keep your petulant mouths shut.

Finally, to the person that posted it, who are you?. Not a dig, just a simple question. You know who I am but I have no idea who you are. You chose to hide your identity. Why? Do I know you? Have we spoken? If you really felt this way, telling me wouldn’t have been as hurtful or cruel as posting a SLSecret about me. I invite you to talk to me on SL, person to person to actually discuss it. No tricks, I just don’t understand how your opinion could be that strong and you have no interest in actually talking to me about it. I’m sure you don’t care about my rebuttal, or my feelings, which is your privilege, but you should know I do not stay quiet. You had your turn to speak, here is mine. 

For those of you who don’t know me, I invite you to. My Plurk, Twitter or in SL. I’m actually a bomb ass person who never attacks people I do not know, who keeps to themselves and just wants to have a damn good time in my virtual world. I’ll be 8 years old on SL this October, yet, things like this still get to me. Does dragging a person really make you feel better? I can’t imagine it could. This is the last time I will speak on this publicly, but I welcome the poster of the Secret to speak to me personally and all those who had such strong views in the comments. Get to know me, before you drag me. 

Bubble Pop!

Baiastice @ Uber August

Hello gentle readers! Today is a tinier blog, as im currently in the process of packing to move to the permanent apartment; that we were supposed to move to today but they aren’t moving us till the morning. Le sigh.

Baiastice is participating in new Uber, Fame round. Sissy never disappoints me, and this dress is gorgeous!.

There are shoes that match this dress, Sharay, but they are for SLink med feet & I loved it with these pumps from Blah, so I chose to pair them with this dress.
