We All Have To Start Somewhere……Blast From the Past

Ola! Today, the End of the World,……is my Bloggaversary…. Another Damn SL Blog is 2 years old

Yes, two years ago when I started my little fashion blog, I wasn’t thinking about celebrating my bloggaversary on December 21, 2012 😉 I had often been told that I had a knack for putting together a kewt outfit when my journey began……………….. as you can see for yourself I didn’t know about Windlight, Antialiazing, Shadows, Lighting, Depth of Field, Line Removal, High Quality Resolution, Liquefy, Curves, Filtering, Control 10 (Thank you Berry), Corel, PhotoShop, Photo Elements………………….and as well as how big my damn eyes were! But two years later I know a few things more than I used to, I enjoy blogging immensely, so I keep going and learn something new every once in awhile and that makes me happy.

I am also killing two birds with one stone as I am doing the Current Blogger Challenge Blast From the Past, I have often thought of redoing my very first post as I was very enamored with this fantastic new dress at the time, the Evion hehe, Sissy made this dress and didn’t know me until I im’d her over my absolute joy that my name was used on a creation in SL hehe, I have a weird name ok I had yet to see anything with Evion on it……it was neat…..she sent me the Evion Dress in Dark Cherry, I put on my best Curio skin and took a fabulous photo 😉

I started my blog that day, trust me I know it is a bad photo and I lmao every time I see it, meh what ya going to do? Seriously though…….everyone has to start somewhere and if I can learn a whole whack-load of trick-of-the-trade so can you, never get discouraged when blogging, sometimes your blog takes off immediately and sometimes you slowly crawl up the ranks with longevity (someone told me that once) knowing it’s an amazing amount of hard work. But when someone reaches out and asks a question, whether it be to find a certain item I have blogged, or to tell me they really liked my post that day………it’s all worth it …..I really just enjoy blogging, I take the good with the bad, sometimes you get a few scrapes but you still have way more fun in the end.

I want to thank Sissy so much for sticking with me, even when my photos (or great big huge eyes) were not quite up to par, and I would like to extend that to all the wonderful designers that have stuck with me along my journey. I also want to thank all the new friends I have made in the blogging community and for the great advice as well as the wonderful kind words……….and you my dear readers! I give you all great big hugs for you are what keeps me coming back each day, Thank you 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my Blast From the Past/Bloggaversary Post, join the Blast from the Past Flickr Group and share your own! Have a great day, stay safe and I shall…………………………..

See you soonish 🙂

You’re Not Serious, Are You?

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!

See you soonish 😉

Just Another Manic Monday

She is late, should have been at work hours ago to meet the deadline. The alarm didn’t go off, then she tripped over the dog, there wasn’t any hot water……again……and she could not get a cab.

 She scribbles herself a reminder as she runs out the door,
See ya soon ;D

"Evion" The Dress

Hi There! I guess I should introduce myself, I am Evion Ember and this is my damn sl blog lolz.
I have hemmed and hawed long enough over blogging. But tonight after 3 long years of SL Fashion, It has finally Happened! My little made up name “Evion” finally made it onto a clothing item in my beloved SL! Without further ado, here it is!
Now Evion is just a name I got off an old water bottle I was drinking at the time of my SL rez day! Just with a twist, Cause yes, I am a little twisted, nothing to be ashamed of here though.
I have met many people along the way, some are my oldest friends, but I have never, like ever seen anything with my exact name on it! So here we go my puny little friend fan base. Here is another damn SL blog! Enjoy
The Evion dress, is a New release from Sissy Pessoa, Baiastice, Whom by the way I have never met but thanked so profusely in a note card last night. Thank you again Sissy 😉 It is a beautiful dress and I absolutely adore it! Perfect holiday apparel! Don’t you think?
S
My boots are the amazing OH boots from Sweetest Goodbye, which I hear is having a huge 40% off sale right now, go go go!
And of course I cannot forget the hair, which is the ever so elegant Tatiana from Truth. I have a secret post coming in the near future all about Truth hair hehe, but ya gotta wait for that one!
Skin: Curio, Yum – Cranberry Crush
Fishnets: Nayer, Fishnet & Lace lowride leggings
whew, thankfully I made it through my first post, hopefully many more to come!
