About bluisthenewblack

I'm a Second Life Avatar who loves talking anything photography. I'm what I call a classic "WIP" Work-in-Progress. I'm trying to "hone" my skills in PhotoShop and by challenging myself with GREAT designers within Second Life this gives me a greater ability to showcase their designs as well as make myself a better photographer, blogger and help keep my purse strings a little more closed these days. *grins* As a side note I have been on Flickr for some time. I just recently decided to Blog as a way to further develop and highlight the smaller items sometimes missed in bigger pictures. https://www.flickr.com/photos/132125807@N06/

~That’s Madam To You~

Hi Everyone! So this will be my last Blog post for a little while. I’m taking some time off because my Real Life Sister is having a major surgery done this Friday. I will be helping her however I can and until then I’m honestly just kinda a wreck and can’t focus at the moment.

I’ve been blogging for a while (Just 2 years now) and this is the first time I’ve ever struggled to put out pictures for anyone. So, know that I will miss it but I have to refocus myself and taking a break is always good for the soul.

This item is from MVD who have very exquisite taste. I am a girl who LOVES to get dressed up. I just never get the opportunity very often. This was just a fun way for me to do a pretty picture while keeping my humor about me. One can never be too serious. So….Grab that liquid of the Gods and let’s see……

~Sakura Kitsune~

Hi Everyone! Well today is bittersweet for me. This is my last Enchantment blog post for this event. I’ve been a Blogger for them, this quarter for 2 years. It’s a Celebration and a turn of events for me.

As I’ve mentioned I’ll be pulling away from blogging for the next Month and with that I’ve decided to no longer blog for this event. For me Enchantment is magical, enchanting, wonderful and full of fun, but It’s time for me to rest my crown and let the next generation take over. New blood is always a must.

I hope you have your coffee in hand and maybe a shot of vodka to go with it. Let’s sit back and relax and see…..

~Emmara~

Hi Everyone! Today will be my last We Love Role Play (WLRP) blog for this Month. I’ve been running behind as my RL has some recent worries playing with my brain. More like making me not focus and unable to really grab ideas like I’m typically able too.

With that said I’ll be taking a few weeks off from blogging very very soon. I have a few more commitments and then I’ll be done for at least a month. But know that I’m ok. I try to be a positive person and remember what is most important to me. Family and my friends. When they need me I go. And I’m going to go.

Well let’s grab that cup of Joe I so need and let’s see……

~The Sorceress~

Hi Everyone! My most favorite Role Play Designer is Noble Creations. Has been for years. While their production of SL mesh items has slowed it’s never a disappointment when I see that they put something out at an event. All those details, well made textures and all while still being a bit sexy. Ahh yes that’s my look. I mean look at those legs! Damn girl!

I hope you have that coffee ready. Mine’s tasting OHHHH so good this morning and lifting my recently blued spirits. I’m working on getting out of my funk, but I hope this blog finds you happy, well and safe!

Let’s get too this shall we and let’s see…………

Hi Everyone! Boy, last night my RL weather was all over the place. Let’s just say I got up this morning by my Dad calling to 1. make sure I was alive and 2. if I’d had coffee yet. Considering I was STILL in bed and sleeping I was not drinking that delicious brew I call the love of my life.

A sprinkle of this-n-that in order to just IMO make a look work. I found an old skull in my inventory *Gasps* and look what I have. A Picture!
