It is amazing when I first started to blog, I would take a picture, crop it and throw it up on my blog and now I lose myself for hours at a time! Yes, maybe I have way to much time on my hands these days I suppose, but I enjoy doing it, I throw the tunes on and away I go. I really think…….and this is shocking even to myself………..that I spend even more time on my photos than I do shopping for the items myself. I mean you have to put the outfit together, props, shadows, poses, find locations, sometimes switch viewers, straighten out prims, change poses and do it all over again…….oh and did I forget to include crashing a million times in there? lolz It is not all fun and games, sometimes I am pulling my hair out, and wondering why I do this lol
But then a picture comes out I love and all the negativity goes away and I start the whole damn process over again the next day! 8-|
Now I know there is the big debate going on with “To Photoshop or not to Photoshop” right now, and I don’t think it matters much either way. I like all kinds of photo’s. The picture can be chopped or not. I think it is just personal preference, no right or wrong way to take pictures, or process them if you do. Kinda like the “Eye of the Beholder” thing. We all do not like the same clothes, art, people even…….so what is the difference here? I think everyone should do what they are comfortable doing, whatever makes them happy! That is the whole point in doing anything at all isn’t it? Ok maybe not working, hehe we all need money, and sometimes you do not have a choice there. But where entertainment value is concerned, would you really listen to what everyone else enjoys and not care about your own likes and dislikes? Oh gawd I so hope not. I am a firm believer of being true to yourself in every situation, even if it is not the majority opinion, who the hell cares!!! So chop away or not, I know I will personally enjoy both types of pictures, there is no right or wrong way of doing this! Unless I am wrong?

Hi hi, I was shopping yesterday and I overheard a conversation a few ladies were having (no I don’t do names lol). One said that she would never ever wear the same item twice while blogging, so there was no use in keeping it! Like really? Wow, so do you blog an item then toss it in the trash? How was this even possible? Then the other well dressed woman said the most horrible thing ever! She would never wear the same hair twice!
What! Like really WHAT! I mean the horror of tossing out or never re-visiting my hair, let alone new and favorite clothing!!!!! Damn I am not made of Linden, truth be told I allow myself a bi-weekly allowance, during which I usually pay my rent, then spend like a wild woman, than run around broke for another week and a half and peruse my inventory for all my new goodies and match them up with all my faves. Omg I could not imagine throwing out anything because I had already blogged it, Especially NEW ITEMS or HAIR!
On the other hand maybe that’s why I can’t get below 32k in inventory though lol.
But I was really just blown away by that, sure I love new, but could you imagine buying celoe, mon tissu, Truth, Mood (and that’s just to name a few) and wearing them all once and they are never to be seen again? haha NOT on this Girlie’s budget or agenda. The Horror :-O of it all! I reuse, I even wear the same items in following posts, I don’t know maybe I am weird yes? /:)
Ok enough with that, I felt like dressing up today in a few of my favorite things along with, yes New, and you can bet every single item in these pictures are safely back in my inventory, filed and ready for some more lovin whenever I fancy!

Catwa has three new releases out, Yuri is the first of which I am wearing today. Like I could stay away from NEW HAIR! hahahahahahaha
I saw this little mesh dress from [EY:NO] on the feed yesterday and rushed right over and bought the pink one of course! No demo for this baby, but have faith all is perfect with this tiny number, fits like a dream and is damn kewt.
Of course you have all been to Collabor88 yes? My two favorite L’s are there and designing up a storm, LISP with her magnificent piano, that indeed does play music and has many poses to play around with for one as well as two people, is just pretty in pink, yes you can get it in all different colors lol and LaGyo with the intense necklace and earrings are just fabulous.
Anyhoo, what a scatterbrain post huh, sorry worked all day on the pictures and rushing the chitchat! I am out for the evening. But before I go, Have you been to the Winter Seasons Gacha fest yet? I went last night…… crashed a few times… lost my mesh dress just as many……or so my viewer told me ;)) but I was so not waiting lolz go, now!
