Teagan Blackthorne tagged me!
What I want for Christmas ~
Copy the below text into your posting, add your reply, add your tagged members (5 please), then leave them a post or email letting them know they’ve been tagged. I can’t wait to read what everyone has for an answer…
Question 1 – What is the one thing you always wanted for Christmas as a child, but never got. Even now, as an adult, it would be pretty cool if you got it.
Question 2 – What is the one thing you wish for this Christmas (for yourself)?
Question 3 – What would you wish for, if the sky was the limit, and nothing was impossible?
~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~
1. I'm soo cheesy.. I always wanted an EasyBake Oven.. but I instead learned how to bake without a light bulb.. much more fun!2. Just for me.. A LARGE box with a bow and certain adorable man and his adorable pug puppy
3. If NOTHING was impossible.. I would wish for my father to come back, if only for a day. I have so many things I wish I could have asked him, wish I would have paid more attention. And it would make my mother so happy.
Oh my.. I tag Popfuzz, The Brutal Honesty crew, Marni Grut, and all my good friends at the Fashion Emergency channel who keep me rolling on the floor, laughing my RL butt off.

- Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
- People who are tagged need to write a post on their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
- At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
- Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
#1. I live in Southern Ohio and I have ALL my life. I take alot of pride in the area I'm from, from reading books about it, to educating others. Civic Pride FTW! BTW.. Dayton Ohi
#2. In RL.. I only really wear ONE pair of shoes. I have large, sensitive feet so I can't wear alot of the fun dressy shoes. I live out my shoe fantasy in SL. WOOT!
#3. I have 4 cats. Duncan, my big black baby, Moron, who is large and orange and deserves his name, Cringer, my skinny runty Battle Cat, and Freya, my widdle girl. All rescues. In fact, I really HATE purebreed animals. I hate seeing people pay $1500 for an overly inbred dog because they think it's CUTE while millions of perfectly adorable, loving healthy dogs and cats are put to sleep every year.
#4. Neural Blankes I met on SL early last year. Since then, we've become good friends in SL and even better friends in RL. Neural even came over when my father died, just to comfort me.
#5. Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, while everyone else is out shopping their asses off, my friends and I are cooking what I like to call, Friendsgiving. It started out with me cooking a whole Thanksgiving feast.. but now that it's 30+ people.. I let them help..
#6. I smoke. I've smoked for 11 years and my mother just NOW found out. It's actually a nice weight off my chest that she knows. She doesn't approve.. but.. she's dealing..
#7. I struggle. I know.. all people struggle. But I struggle with my wieght (too much), my health (I take Paxil), my demons (not gonna say). I think people who do struggle with things should let others know.. and people... remember.. everyone is having a hard time... so be a little nicer, MMk?
#8. I cry at the drop of a hat over my store in SL. I checked my update group and saw how many people were in it.. and GUSH, I'm crying. When I got nominated for a SL Fashion Blogger's Choice Award.. i criiiiiied like a little anime girl. When people drop notecards on me, or IM me that they LOVE my stuff.. I tear up. I'm so used to being torn down for everything I try to do.. that all this.. acceptance.. is hard to take. Being added to the FashionPlanet feed, and actually being TAGGED by someone.. is just..god.. I dunno what to say.. too bad you can't get tear marks on a blog...
Neural Blankes, Lizbeth Marlowe, Popfuzz Bamboo, Marni Grut and my fav blogger, Swirly Cyclone!

SL fashion may never be as important as RL Fashion, but the people are.
I know how it feels to lose someone close to you, important to you, loved by you, suddenly and unexpectedly. To Ginny's family and friends, I offer my sympathies and well wishes. They don't know me either, but I'm only an IM away if you need to talk to complete stranger who understands and is willing to talk. Please let me know if I can do anything to help.

Neural Blankes owns (N) and makes all sorts of great clothing. But today, I go for the stockings. The Colors! OH MY GOD. There are soo many colors to choose from, and sooo many different styles. Sheer with back seams, Lace Roses, Lace topped, Large Fishnet with the BEST sideseams! They line up!
Look at the work on the ankle. Anyone can tell you that SL ankles are a BIIIITCH to texture. I love the way the line is still straight all the way down the leg, even to the heel. FAB.
Prices in (N) range from $1L for some great Halloween stockings to $100L for a multipack of colors.
I love these stockings, they are my total goto stockings for sexy times and any time I need them.
SLurl? Of course you may!
(N) Stockings and other fine items
FIXED the Slurl! WOO! $10L sale going on now.. I love Neural's poses if you are interested in modeling poses or sits for furniture.. click the linkage!

If you are a blogger and interested in a review pack of my shoes, please send me a notecard with a link to your blog. I will check out your blog and send you a review pack. If there are certain shoes you would like to see, please mention that in the notecard. If you have any special needs, different perms, full perm ad pics, the like, mention that. I'd love a link to the article in which my shoes are featured. Don't feel shy about asking. It MAKES my DAY to hear that someone actually likes my shoes. If you have an idea for a different color or a neat pair of shoes, send that in a notecard also! I love new ideas!
If you would like me to look at your clothing, accessories, hair, doodads, etc. Please, just send me a LM to your main store. Review copies drive me crazy, as I usually go after the smaller stores. I will BUY what I like. I like to think that I make the day of the person who's store I just plunked some cash down in. Alot of the little stores that I blog, I prolly just paid their store rental with my purchase. I remember how it was, when someone stopped by and bought TWO pairs of my shoes. I would get SO emotional about it. I hope that I do that to some people too. So, small store owners - LM me.. Let me see your work.

$150L??!! $65L??!! My AV's ear must be malfunctioning! These are totally amazing dresses! Let me show you..
1st up is Me 'N' Squee!
I'm in white, called Romance Time Pearl. This is one of the more expensive dresses there.. at a WHOPPING!! BANK BREAKING! $200L. That's right! $200L and its not JUST a dress. Oh no! Lemme list all the items it came with: two bracelets, a pair of earrings, a necklace AND the entire dress. I didn't get a close up of the jewelry, but even it had FINE prim work. Just Stunning! I love the mix of static and flexi pieces in the skirt. Keeps the legs covered. Came in a bunch of colors, but damn.. I wanted WHITE.All the pieces are Mod AND Copy.
Squee is wearing Conveyance Time 2 Green. Wait for it.. $100L!!! My god.. it's So So So... CUTE. It's so Mary Poppinsque! The Texture work is beautifully realistic. And again with the static and flexi prims in the skirt. This outfit ALSO came in SOOO many colors. I can't believe the designer has that much time! Woof!
Next we have.. Squee and Me!
Squee is wearing this HOT little number, showing that this designer isn't just about Victorian Elegance and all.. NO.. they do HOT MAMAs too! And with a price that ANYONE can afford! Only $35L for Kithra in Black. I saw a few other dark colors in the Kithra outfit. The shading matched the fit of the outfit like only a few people can. Not too much, not too little. There are subtle details like princess seams in the top and texture to the pants. $35L PEOPLE!
I'm grooving my Donna Reed style in Henrietta in Pink! I love retro goodness, heck.. I used to watch Dobie Gilas when I was a teen. Ask your mom.. she might know. I HAD to have this, if it's just to vacuum the carpet and wait for my husband to come home. Poofy Poofy Dots! Do you even WANNA know? $65L... $65L to make your Donna Reed dreams come true. Get it in Pink, or Green or go for the old TV look and get Black! Are you seeing the hand drawn goodness? The sweet little buttons down the front? Run! or.. TP as it is! GO I shall give you Slurl!
There is also some NICE swimwear, and tops. Just make sure you get CLOSE to the vendors to hear them.

I happened to find this cute little clothing store. Bluebell Productions, right down the street from me. Literally! We have streets on Redux! I love it.
Sooo.. being a Fashion Blogger, I decided I would check out these items, ya know.. in the name of good fashion blogging.. not just because I like clothing. Oh no.. this is for SCIENCE!
First up we have..
The Naula outfit. $250L is a little steep, but I love this shirt. I love the prim arms. Yay for Floofy! The pattern is very subtly pinkish coral, meaning, if you put on pink shoes.. it's pink! if you put on coral shoe... it's coral! It comes on one layer, so you don't accidently take off your bra in the middle of a PG area! I hate that..
Next we have...
The Jewell outfit in Chocolate. $200L Came in about 5 colors. I had to be all Autumny and got the chocolate. For $200L you get a CUTE halter on the jacket layer and TWO pairs of dressy pants! YAY for options! Seam work is good here. The pants are light on details, but sometimes I don't mind not having a shiny butt. These are stylish pants, classic. I wish they were MOD though so I could wear the Tessa boots I bought here too. I'm wearing the bottom of the boots and they work GREAT under the pants. These are $350L and came in 7 colors. No sexy walk in these, thank you! I really like these boots. I'm jealous of Bluebell's boot making skills! They are nicely shaped, rounded toe. No modding needed which is good, because they too aren't mod.
Next we have a TwoFer!
This is Squee and Me in the Freebies! Wee! There are two giftbags in Bluebell, both filled with GREAT goodies! I looove a good freebie bag. Squee on the left is wearing the Dressy Pants and the Trudy shirt in White. The belt is drawn on and I love the little subtle pocket detailing. The pants have an actual fabricy TEXTURE to them. Might be linen. The Trudy shirt is just fun, yet classy. Sexy slits that show some skin, without showing alot of SKIN.
I'm wearing the Trudy pants in black with the Classy Halter top on the jacket layer and hanging on my wrist is a Ruby Bracelet, also found in the gift bags! Oh! and those Tessa boots again. I might have glued them on. :}
How about some details?

If you are under 120 days and interested in some free Vendor space, look no further than...
This is a GREAT space for newbies to show off what they have learned to build and create.
For us oldbies.. Just LOOK what I found!
Petal Meg has some FAB jewelry for good prices and Hubby's Boutique has been raved about in a bunch of the Fashion Blogs.
If you are under 120 and want some space, there are some RUUULLLEESS.. Lemme give ya a little taste of them
1. You must be 120 days old or younger to get free vendor space at
the NCI Mall. Older players may get space for a commision fee,
space allowing. (Younger residents will always get priority for any
space available.) If you are over 120 days you must use our vendor.
2. You are allowed only one vendor. The vendor should use no more
than 5 prims. (In general, this would allow a forward and back
arrow, a picture area, an info button, and a text setter prim.)
You may use our vendor if you need one, if you are over 120 days you
must our vendor to pay commission fees. The vendor may give out
landmarks to your main location, if you have one. We want you to
get your name out there! However please do not set out an object
that is simply a landmark distributor.
NO TIP JARS
3. The NCI Mall is in a PG region, and as such, all vendors and all items sold
must be acceptable for a PG region. No nudity, and thus, no skins
4. You may not resell anything that you have purchased elsewhere here,
that goes for anything you have aquired free as well as anything you
have paid for. Your name must appear in the "Creator:" slot.
5. You may not falsely advertise, or advertise deceptively, any boxed item.
If the vendor sells something other than what it claims, it will be
6. You may not sell gambling machines or devices of any kind.
7. i. You may not set up Hippiepay "vendors" or Pyramid systems, nor any
type of money scamming device, and so
ii. You may not sell any inventory that violates the spirit of Second Life,
nor anything that explicitly violates ANY of the Second Life Terms of Service
They may be strict, but NCI Kuula gets some of the BEST non camper traffic on the grid. This is great for newbies. I wish they would have had this when I was first getting started. Then you all could have bought my shoes WAY BACK WHEN! :}

So I decide to start blogging again, make a bunch of new shoes. I'm ready to GO.. and tragedy strikes.
My real life father passed away suddenly on August 2nd. BAM! Just like that. Now, lemme give you a little slice of my Real Life.
I make intercoms for grocery stores and warehouses. It's a family company. I go to work every weekday with my mother, my father and my sister. So to lose the tech guy, the designer of all our products, is a MAJOR loss. We are trying to pick up the pieces as best we can. But he never wrote a damn thing down! Not to mention, I lost my FATHER. My Daddy! As you get older, you start to lose the people you looked up to. In recent years, I've lost my Grandma to breast cancer, my Grandfather to suicide and now my father to a massive heart attack.
I know you all are wondering how I'm doing. I know this because everyone asks me! I'm doing what I can. I'm surviving one day at a time. Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for asking how I'm doing. Thank you for caring.
If you can do one thing for me. Just one little thing. Do the one thing I can't do. Give your father a call. No matter if you don't have a good relationship with him or not. Just a little call. What could it hurt?

yeah.. bout time I remembered that I had a blog. It's just been a really busy time for me, in RL and SL. I moved my store to a nice class five island. It's bigger and better. I've been working on tons of new shoes. In fact I just released 22 NEW pairs. Lemme plop some photoage on you.
That's just a small taste of the new shoes at my store.. how about a SLurl?
MMMM SLurly goodness.
Hopefully I'll keep up with reviewing new and great stores. And also.. giving you a little taste of my shoes. If that's ok..
