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/

Hi Everyone! So I’ve been fighting another migraine that seems to not wanna let up. This is the problem (for me) when seasons change. My little head (aka my barometer) wants to just kick into overdrive and not settle down.

Owell. Not to totally bore you to death, just the struggle is real. I wanna talk about the new Gacha set from AsteroidBox. It’s so fun. I’ve only been blogging for them the last couple months, but I thought this was a good set. Pretty much all is here except the hair and accessories. Love it when Designers do this.

Hi Everyone! So today’s look is from FaMESHed X. I thought this had the potential to be very “fun” or just for fun, so I thought I’d put my spin on it. Be a little alluring with a hint of mischief. Ahh yes….what Second Life can do for us in our minds, our imaginations and just keeping us fun.

~Trick or Treat~

Hi Everyone! So I typically name my blog post from something I’m wearing, a hair, a skin, an outfit…but today this is totally just me loving the fun that you can have with the Halloween season.

~The Witch House~

Hi Everyone! Ahhh today’s a little different for me. I again, am NOT a home and garden blogger, but when something is out at an event or showcased by one of my Designers I have to at least try. I mean we all get better with trying IMHO and well I try to be a lady who blogs all things not just fashion. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I love fashion, but sometimes it’s nice to change things up, sprinkle some magic dust onto things and just have a whirl of fun. This is me today.
