Everything I can arrange
Every part of me you change
Just hold me together
Tell me, you’ll always want me to stay
God I’m so far behind. (I feel like I’m saying that way too often for my own good with blogging lately. I’m sorry!)
I’m not sure how some people can make multiple posts in a day. I mean… I know some that sit down at their computer to blog because that is the ONE thing they are in SL for… so they get up, have some coffee, start their first post, break for meals, and finish their last post before they go to sleep. And they can crank out several posts that way. I just… can’t. I feel like if I try to do multiple posts in a day, most of the time I end up sacrificing post quality and image quality.
Not that my images are fantastic… but I TRY. And if I’m trying to crank out 3, 4, 5 posts every day, then I’m not going to have the time to try as much as I do with pictures now.
Now… on days like today, where it’s 5:15am and I’m WIDE awake because I was bedridden most of yesterday, sick out of my mind… then yeah, I might manage to crank out a second, or even third post today. Depends on styling inspirations, posing inspirations, and whether or not I can fix my tablet… cause drawing shadows with my mouse is just… ugh. I don’t have a steady enough hand for that.
But anyway… I have zero idea how some people can crank out several posts in a day. And I find myself looking at some of them and going, “Hmm… maybe if they focused more on quality than quantity, their pictures would highlight the items they’re blogging in a more flattering way.”
That said… I can TOTALLY understand the pressure that fellow bloggers might feel to HAVE to post several items at once. I have a sponsor whom was on vacation for a bit, so she came back, got into a huge energy frenzy and sent out like 2 or 3 full blogger packs in the last week or so. So I’m staring at 8 or so outfits from just that one designer going, “Ohhhhh my god, how do I figure this out, and get everything else done?” Sometimes I can focus less on an outfit or two because of my, “If I wouldn’t wear it regularly, I refuse to blog it… because I can’t promote something I don’t like,” thing. But with this particular designer… I can NEVER do that. I love everything she does.
Her talent is frustrating. And that sounds so stupid to say. I just want to be able to show EVERYTHING she ever does in the most AMAZING pictures ever. And I totally can’t. Cause I’m not the most amazing photographer ever. But I love everything she does. So you’ll probably see a lot of it coming up.
THIS post, though, has stuff from a new event that’s opening in 4 DAYS that I’m super excited about. iNOVARE’s FashionTropic event is featuring soooo much summer, and will open on July 7th and run through the end of the month. I hold the honor of being the Blogger Manager for this event, which gives me access to the same stuff the bloggers have access too, so I figured I’d throw my hat in the ring and showcase some of this stuff too.
Because why would I expect other people to do stuff that I don’t want to do/can’t do. Lol. I may not manage to get all the posts they’re required to do (why I didn’t apply to actually blog), BUT, I can definitely highlight some things I LOVE. Like this dress. I love big poofy dresses, and Nya’s absolutely killed it with this one. It comes in, like, 4 different colors that are varying degrees of tropical, colorful awesomeness.
Also for FashionTropic are some pretty neat sunglasses from MEVA. They come with a hud that lets you change the color of the glass lenses (6 colors), frames (7 colors), legs – the part that goes behind your ears, for non-glasses-wearing folks (7 colors – that match frame colors), and stripes (5 colors). You can also change the degree of transparency of the glass lenses, resize via the hud, and turn full bright on and off.
The nails that you admittedly can’t see to great are from a designer I’d never heard of before, but LOVE the detail in their nails. These feature a white/pearescent base with green palm leaves on them in varying patterns and orientations. I’ll definitely be sure to keep a look out for Figure in future events, and I’ve already kept an LM to their store for further perusing.
