A Get Away Kinda Day

A Get Away Kind of Day

Hello again everyone! Back to share with you some amazing new things that are out there today.  I felt after my post yesterday I would kinda just do a get away. A chance to focus, meditate, and refresh my mind.  As the world continues to spiral inside SL it always reminds me that I care so much about the quality of our work.  At times we tend to focus on the couple’s aspect, sharing a relationship and blog with my love is something I take much pride in.  The responses that some people give are “You’re not the male centerpiece, or you focus to much on a background, or you’re wife is the star, well to be honest she is always my shooting star, but I digress for a moment.  The focus is on the “BRANDED ITEMS” not the avatar.  If it clothes, then we tend to put much focus there, if it is backdrop, then that is where the focus goes.  The avatar is the model, not the intended focal point unless need be.  What I find disturbing is places will hire a blogger manager that has never ran a blog in their life. Now I find that to be quite comical as how the heck do you know what you are dealing with in a blogger’s perspective.  When I started to blog it was never about the free items, heck it still isn’t, what I have and always will do is try my hardest to bring attention and awareness to the items that I, Tilly or together want to promote. That is what Blogging is. BRING AWARENESS to the items. It’s not a popularity contest, it is about promoting the brand and showcasing their creativity.

I tend to harp on this, as over the past year I have noticed a shifted focus on “CLIQUE” like creators and promoters. This should never be the case. But how does one convey that to the masses. It is not as easy as it seems, but I will continue to “USE MY VOICE” to speak up.  #BLOGFORCREATIVITY not #BLOGCAUSEIGETFREEITEMS or #CLIQUEBLOGSOFSL.

So sorry I went off there.  Anyways, to focus now upon the amazing items that are out there.  This amazing backdrop by Paparazzi was something we had to have. It is amazing and well designed and can create so many focal opportunities in a blog and background.

Tilly is wearing the new outfit out from L&B at The Epiphany event.  Take a drop on by and check out the amazing outfit for yourself.  You are sure to not be disappointed..

As for myself, I’m wearing some amazing item’s that are out right now at The Men’s Department.  With the “Creative” minds from Parker and Sabotage, I have created this new style for all you men to enjoy. We hope you like the style and look.

Till next time.

Let’s Start A Riot

Let's Start a Riot

Hi Everyone! Are you ready? Ready to start a Riot. How about a Revolution?  Let’s get it started.

I wanted to take a moment to share this amazing new look.  I was feeling a bit dark, a bit rebellious.  After the past few months that I have had, I felt it was time to break out and refresh the look.  From the help from our friends @ Doux and R3VOLT I was able to do so.  But nothing is ever possible without my amazing babygirl Tilly.  Thanks babe for allowing me to express myself and love me no matter what.

Something that has truly been baffling my mind is the intense scrutiny that the public sector places on creativity and branding.  The pessimistic flare, the detrimental digs, the continued sanctimonious sarcasm that I have experienced both in world and out, is a bit sickening.

Where has the appreciation and love gone? Where has the kind words falling away to? Does it take that much effort to compliment or thank another?  I do not think so.  One thing as a blogger I have learned is I have a voice. WE have a voice.  I always appreciate those that support me, those that realize the power of even 1 view is a positive number in your branding? Can you truly trust the favorite’s as a measure of consistency and branding? NO! High favorites do not equate to sales always, but unique hits, high quality, and further more, for every unique visit, that just means a unique and interested buyer.  So I say this to the cynical and cancerous society that seems to breed itself in SL SOD OFF! You are no better then me, then anyone that works hard to display their creativity, regardless of it is contains your products or not.  Support creativity, support the open mind, and support the hard work as we all support yours.  Remember never step on people on the way up, cause your ass will meet them on the way back down and even the mighty fall a time or too.

I hope you all enjoy this amazing look and Tilly and I will be back shortly with another blog!

Hi Everyone!!

Just wanted to push out a new blog as things are in completely full swing and Tilly and I have been so busy.  With the creation of !MiNT!

We do love sharing our styles with you and you will find all you need to recreate the look below.  Hope you all enjoy it, and never forget to sneak away with that special someone to show them love and attention, it goes a long way when you always are busy with working.

See you all soon,

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all are enjoying the start of your week.  It has been a great week here.  Tilly and myself have been spending lots of time to make up for our lost time, and yesterday we celebrated 2 amazing years together.  WOW!! That seems like a million years (all in a good sense) for a SL love. But our love transcends that and moves us into Real Life so I guess it’s all relative and love is infinite to me.

We hope you all are doing well and that you love the new style we put together for you. Here it is!!!
