Not posting up a new fashion tile, that is still currently in the works but I will post this month’s random photos that I have taken either in my cottage or in new sims I have discovered on Second Life.
(Taken at home, four days ago by my blogging corner. Top is by Altair, hair is by Dela)
I have not logged into the virtual universe in four days, I have been working the morning shift and come home to either watch Netflix or write up more short stories for my Ame Hayato chronicles. It is not that I haven’t been inspired or the lack of outfits to blog but I am finding more interest and fun in collaborating outfits for my Yakuza on Polyvore and writing about it here.
(Taken at a kawaii sim, entire outfit is by Zenith and hair again by Dela)
Don’t get me wrong, I do like creating photographs in the virtual universe and even discovered how I can make all my photos very high definition and keeping it like that when it uploads to flickr, but with the same old tiles that I release and the same theme that only appears to be increasing in world of the less is more when it comes to clothing, it is making me feel very meh about the place.
(Very hi-resolution picture in my home sim, top is by Azuchi, skirt by Crazy Kitty and boots, a group gift from Jian)
The toxic personalities of those who live online 24hrs and seem to forget about their loved ones in reality is increasing and a sad realisation, my own boyfriend does not log on unless it is the weekend because he would only log on if I am around and our time zones in my Summer months always clash and it is too late by the time he finishes work during the week days. We are going to meet in August when I travel to London this year and our long distance relationship will become very real.
Moving forward with this blog, anything related to fashion posts will be both a mix of Second Life and the Polyvore outfits I have made for Ame.

It is so stinking hot! Like ridiculous at 40 degrees, I am born in the Summer but as the years have passed I have grown to enjoy cooler and Autumn weather much more. The weather in either New Zealand or England is more favourable for me to handle. It is especially annoying when my uniform is of that stiff fabric that you can’t breathe in and being at the front desk of a hotel, I have to wear bloody stockings too! Eww…

After a chilled out five days off though one of those days included going for a walk in the Blue Mountains, yes I drove 45mins up into my local mountains and went for a walk around our local landmarks because the company of myself when everyone else is working is quite enjoyable. I have returned to work since last Friday and the weekend was chaotic with dodgy guests who just aren’t trusted or causing disruption. Just got tonight and tomorrow then I have my weekend again 😀

I think the vice I got again is related to those on Second Life who make the videos of their avatar dancing, product value I understand to show what you are offering but those girls who do it to purposely show off their huge pixel tits or backside, you are better off going on those cam websites and displaying your real body if so bold -_-
Normally this post between gifs and fashion tiles is a continuating of Ame Hayato’s Chronicles or a diary that includes my weekly 5 likes but tonight I would simply like to express my concern and sympathy for my friends in the United States. My family from the Philippines living there, my Transgender bestie, my Afro-American roleplaying girl friend and my fellow SL fashion blogging Latina. I and the rest of the world are just as scared and behind you, it will be better!
Like your current President said in one of his final speeches “The sun will rise tomorrow” and it will continue to do so for the next four years, even with a Republican president, Senate and Congress you are a sturdy people and will persevere. If it feels like it is going down the drain I have a spare room at my house here down under that you are welcome to live in 😛 ❤
I got another proper weekend off which meant tonight I got to hang out with Lana again in the city though mum had a dinner with her side of the family at our local RSL. She wanted me to come but I wanted to tell my bestie about where I am up to in regards to my character Ame Hayato and her stories. It was also a very hot today today and is going to be warm tomorrow, stayed cool but I do not like it when we have bushfires whether back burning/controlled or suddenly done by some stupid person who did not put out their cigarette correctly while driving.

No vices tonight despite mum annoying me and trying to guilt trip me in not attending her birthday dinner, I already had dinner with her and the rest of our family on her actual birthday! Boss lady was kind enough to give me AM shift on that day and PM shift the next day so I didn’t have to worry on an early bedtime.
I am at work this afternoon but that is ok, it is roughly 5hrs until home time and when my weekend officially begins and weekend I mean everyone else’s normal Saturday-Sunday, I have both days off! I hardly get them free because I work in the hotel industry, looking forward to more movie/dinner times with bestie Mei 😀

I have one vice for tonight and it has been nagging me for the past month because I keep seeing the same girls do it but you know this generation of teenagers are horny little shits, I sound old saying that…oh well! The porn gifs posted on Facebook using the tumblr link, for some reason Facebook doesn’t see it as offensive but oh pixel pictures are? I’m sorry, what?! This is real people doing the dirty in animated format! -_-
My boyfriend has gone away for 2-3 weeks with his mates to Crete so while my bedtime is better for myself and earlier, I still miss seeing him after I finish my PM shift and then he comes home from work too. Because of this large absence in my life I have been occupying myself with random online things in between shifts. I have a timeline and arcs for Ame’s chronicles, I have been on/off playing Legion and getting more inspiration for my warlock’s short stories. I have also been utilising Pinterest as well to aid me visually for writing.

Tonight I only got one vice to vent about which is a good thing because I am less angry on everything that happens around me in particular on Second Life but this pet peeve is still irritating me and that is of Copy cats/Clones– Girls who mimic my appearance online or change it to try and give it their own style when I try and be original while still keeping my favourite personal trend of Sailor Moon/kitten/pink and black.
Day 3 of work today and so far nothing too dramatic going on at work and I even got time to continue my story board for my Lotus Hexad trilogy. Counting down still until I get to watch Suicide Squad as well as flying out to Hawaii, need to start packing for that soon.
Second Life facebook and people’s statuses though, what irks me is the girls who are known for having many men complain about how they can’t last in any sort of relationship maybe because word spreads of how many males you have conquered and its not attractive at all. I wonder have they ever thought about this, not every bloke likes used goods.
I haven’t started my trilogy yet either and I keep adding more details into my little notebook, I have the opening chapter ready just need to motivate myself to type it all. Anyway, these are my five likes;
- How to cake it youtube channel, Yolanda’s cakes are amaze
- Tom Hiddleston is back in Australia for Thor 3 😀
- Cadbury crunchie block

Though seriously why is this even a thing in this day of age with the battling of two amazing comic fandoms around the world. I think only since DC has stepped up its game onto the big screen and not just with its tv show, the negative nancies who exist within the Marvel fanbase are stirring up trouble and pointing fingers at “how bad” the DC films are. For example, Batman vs Superman came out this year and my bestie and I went to see it in gold class.
Absolutely loved it! It was darker than the light hearted Marvel movies that have already been released and we grown to love but it was done in typical comic fashion (not that many people picked up on this). The reviews weren’t great at all and Snyder was ridiculed for directing it. I personally saw no problem with this film and applaud Gal Gadot who portrayed Wonder Woman at how amazing she made the Amazon princess to be.
This year we also watched Deadpool, Captain America: Civil War and most recently X-men Apocalypse. Again though Deadpool was very adult humour and silly/cheesey in many of its scenes both Mei and I enjoyed the film, Civil War had our emotions on a rollercoaster of both happy and sad and scared that our favourite characters would die. It was overall a very good film done in the best Marvel knows of promoting and showing their franchise.
X-Men has always had mixed reviews and a couple of flops -coughs- Last Stand anyone? But I personally enjoyed Apocalypse soo much! The younger version of our A team were on point and especially Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, she was bloody awesome! So rather than the two fandoms fight against one another can’t we all just rally together and be content and happy. We are living in the years of when our favourite superheroes of our childhood are being brought to the silver screen. Be grateful we get to watch both sides and see what the film makers can show their interpretation on each because yikes, you all need to chill out!
This time I am venting about reality and in particular my family and what is going on at present in my house every time I come home from either work or bestie outing with Mei. You see my sister and her boyfriend have split up about a month ago and though it turned bitter and nasty, they talked again and it was going smooth…for a week. But despite giving advice which I’m all happy to give, to be the listening ears of a concerned mother it is getting all too much!
My dad has stopped caring and gets annoyed with mum and her vents and nosey self trying to figure out what her younger daughter is doing since she isn’t told anything and therefore mum comes to me, every night to talk about the same thing- those two. It has gotten so dramatic and highly strung I have gone to work to seek advice from both current and former front office managers, my two Assistant managers and of course tonight vented a heap to my best friend after watching Civil War.
I have repeated and advised the same opinions and ideas to mum every night but really this has gotta stop, this whole cold treatment going on between her and my sister needs to cease. I want peace in my house! It makes me wanna stay outside longer even if it means loitering around work just for a calmer mind!
Not Second Life related but its got to do with something that I enjoy watching and heavily invested in when it comes to buying their movies whenever they are released. I am talking about the new trailer and the changing of the dolls appearance of Monster High. I bought Barbie: Spy Squad yesterday and watched it last night, as always there are trailers for future dvd releases and Monster High was one of them.
It featured a very different looking Draculaura and very different looking Monster High? Draculaura is known for being pink and cutesy but also dark and edgy because it is a school for monsters. The whole appeal of this collection released by Mattel years ago was because they were different to the Barbies, Bratz, My Scene and Ever After High dolls. The movies itself was all about embracing originality and to love who you are as a person.
So with this new reboot? They have removed Draculaura’s fangs, Frankie’s stitches are less prominent and apparently what I heard in the fandom that they have removed Spectra completely?! All for the sake of aiming at a younger audience and that the dolls and CGI that we have all come to know and love is seen as “too scary”? I’m sorry what? It is not just me who is outraged at this. My bestie Katie was venting last night and so was a lot of girls in the MH forums, I hope Mattel wakes up and sees this is a bad change.
