Did you forget?


Pose : FOXCITY. Highlights-3 (Fatpack exclusive)

Background items : 
Refuge - Selene Ottoman Cream/G 
[DDD] Twinkle Patches - Giant Patch
{anc} mist cloud [sungold] 
Skye Studio Enchanted Forest
::Static:: Grandfather Clock - Walnut Enchantment

Today I'm showcasing some more items from Enchantment. It might seem a little bizarre to be a nudey-pants while depicting an event aimed at fairytales, but the Grimm fairytales were never aimed at children and were in fact converted over time to appeal to kids.
Anywho, the idea behind the picture is to try and show how I feel a lot of the time as an adult. The clock represents the ticking of time, as I become older, I'm reminded that our time here is short. I don't mean that in a morbid way at all, but rather that we often spend our time focusing on the wrong things, worrying about how others are living their lives and not concentrating on doing the best for us. It's supposed represent a bit of a dream-like state, the position Pickle is in (which is almost a fetal position) signifies the fact that often, I really don't feel like I'm adulting to a respectable level. Most days, it's actually hard to even drag myself out of bed, and so I tend to celebrate the fact I managed to do just that by patting myself on the back and neglecting other things I just know I -should- do. 
Of course, there's the undertones of storybooks and fairytales, most of which I will make grabby hands at to cling to because although my body is constantly in flux and the wrinkles are getting deeper, my mind is still fixed in my twenties or even below, with some minor adjustments and understandings I wish I'd had back then.
Once more, I'm not entirely sure this description makes any sense. I just know that there are times we need to just stop and attempt to make things work, our way. 
I think that's what we all try to do daily. Be kind to each other, please. There really isn't enough love showcased in the world, and if you can't see it - be it. ♥

Take me with you.


Pose :  Infiniti . - Little Kitten - 5

Location : Guilty Pleasures (BDSM RP Sim)

I took my picture today at my friend Juniper's sim. Now at the beginning I wasn't even really looking to take a photo, I was just being a nosy Pickle, but when I wandered around a little, I found there were some absolutely fabulous nooks perfect for photographs.
I realize I haven't shown much in this picture, but that should only encourage you to go and take a look for yourself! Please remember it is a roleplay D/s & BDSM area, and it is ADULT themed. Enter with a respectful mindset and I have no doubt you'll be at home.

Not entirely sure what's going on today, maybe there's a full moon or something, but everything hasn't been working how it's supposed to. Including me! 
However, somehow I've pulled through SL not loading, flickr being weird and facebook deciding to throw a spanner in the works too, and now here we are, back at Man-Pickle Monday! Yay! Finally!
I'm joined by Mal again today, and you can find his credits below... oh, and that cute little old lady? That's my alt, Paloma. You may have met her before. I'm incredibly creeped out because she does look a bit like my RL Mum, but older... and having her thrown around in oftentimes suggestive poses while trying to find a nice sit for her to feed the pigeons was a little bizarre!
Anywho, here's the stuff you come for, credits!

No surrender.


Pose : *!R.O!* Archer BENTO Pose (Includes mesh bow, not used)

Bow & Quiver : Ariskea [ Sentinel ] Gacha (from a LONG time ago)

Location : Lost Lagoon

I want to start off this post with an absolutely massive shout-out to Reve Obscura poses. Without seeming to blow smoke up the butts of one of my sponsors (and making it entirely clear that they do indeed allow me the use of their items as a sponsor), they are without doubt one of the best bento pose makers in SL, according to the shapes I enjoy wearing.
Bento poses (and any poses for that matter), tend to need a little tweaking whether that's by adjusting the shape of the avatar, or the use of the god-sent Animare hud (available on marketplace >Here<)
With Reve Obscura, there have been very few times I have had to make adjustments, or use the animare hud, and for that reason they will remain a go-to for me. I have purchased several of the poses before they've been distributed to bloggers - that's how much I love this store!

I got a little disappointed again today, because I received another rejection from a store that I love. 
I make sure I only apply to stores and events I adore, I won't fill out an application for a place I don't genuinely want to support. I have massive, massive issues with the selection process, and I entirely believe that 90% of the time, likes and faves on flickr or social media determine the outcome of your application. I'm not -active- active anywhere on flickr, facebook or any other platform, and that's a choice I make because I do not want to a. cause unnecessary drama about my personal opinions, especially because most of my opinions are stated in this blog quite plainly, and b. it's not in my nature to sit in on this "fave for fave" or "share for share" environment that seems to be essential to 'getting your name out there'.
Don't get me wrong, I entirely applaud every single blogger and photographer purely because I know how much effort goes in to each and every post/photo. I have no issues with hitting like, sharing, or favouriting photo's I genuinely love, but I am NOT going to do it for every single picture in the hope that I get the same treatment back. I don't think that's fair, and it's kind of like giving a child a trophy just for taking part in sports day.
I hear crazy stories about people sitting on flickr for three hours a day.. an hour in the morning to catch up on photo's they've missed over night, an hour at lunch time where they backtrack over any  pictures from the morning, and again before they go to sleep so they can fave the ones they missed since lunch. I'd much rather chill out and pretend to be busy elsewhere than feel that kind of pressure for likes.
I realize that my theories on this can potentially be controversial, but it's something that plagues my mind daily. For that reason, I will continue to meander along, enjoying the talented sponsors I am currently lucky enough to blog for, and keep putting myself out there when a spot comes up at a store I am crazy about, fully aware that I'll likely miss out! 
With all that gotten out of my system, here's the stuff you really want to know! More beautiful items from FGC, the theme of this round is "Wild West, Cowboys and Native Americans, West world & Firefly inspired." You can find more information on the website >Here<

Close to you.


Pose : Combination between an AO stand, the flute anim & animare!
Flute : LORIEN HAMMELIN FLUTE @ Enchantment (Comes with bento finger anim & option to turn music on & off!)

Background items : [DDD] Swaying Leafy Bush
JIAN Goats

HUZZAH! It's time for another round of Enchantment!
The event opens today at midday SLT and the theme of this round is "Brothers Grimm", which is practically open season for anything ever mentioned in one of their freaky stories! You can find more information on all things Enchantment at their website >Here< , including designers, maps and shopping guides.

I had to start with this cute little goat outfit. Anyone who follows me on facebook might be aware of the immense level of squeals I achieve whenever a goat is posted on my timeline. I am also a bit of a crazy goat lady, and will definitely share those adorable videos of little goats in onesies, or dressed up for seasonal thangs. I just can't get enough of the adorable furry babies, and want to hug them all up. Needless to say it seemed absolutely appropriate that I become an Enchanted Goat, happily playing my flute and wiggling my goat-y tail to the sound of my (probably rather rubbish but hopefully) pretty tuneage.

I've paired the outfit with a delicious skin from Lumae, and as usual, you can see some of the options available with this gorgeous skin below, all taken in calWL windlight on firestorm.

Showing above,  Lumae Fantasy Nylissa skin, in the version1 eyebrow. Left to right - No brow, white brow, grey brow, black brow.
It's worth mentioning that although I've shown this skin on Catwa Lona, it's also available for Genus, Lelutka, LAQ & GAEG heads.


This is the version2 eyebrow. Left to right - No brow, white brow, grey brow, black brow.
I've used the 'freckled' version of the skin to show off this eyebrow, although both v1 & v2 eyebrows come with the freckled options, so you can mix and match to your own preferences.
