Never Let Me Down Again.

I’m taking a ride
With my best friend
I hope he never lets me down again
He knows where he’s taking me
Taking me where I want to be
I’m taking a ride
With my best friend.

Hi everyone!

I did the above image showing some of my favourite items from The Seasons Story, I wanted to do a pretty sunny afternoon picture. I think I did okay on it but I am happy with the final result!

So this is kind of a long blog post, I went to the hair fair and decided to do some shopping! So I am listing some of my favourite hairs from the Hair Fair! I wanted to list them all but I was getting tired and then Second Life started to misbehave when it came to photos so unfortunately I did not get to do pictures of the rest but Clawtooth, Ison and Lelutka are some of my favourites too!

Just a small post in writing today, sorry! <3

Searching For You.

You took a piece of me a long time ago,
and ever since then I have been searching
in all the wrong places to get that piece back.

Hi!

We Love Role-Play opened on the 4th July with a lot of amazing items! I am in love with this dress from DRIFT. It is so very pretty! It is fitted mesh, and so feminine on, it had inspired me to do something different for today’s blog post!

I decided to put a scene together to give some sort of forest look and decided to use the Heart trees as I have never really used them before! It gave it more of a realistic jungle theme I was looking for!

Glam Affair is releasing a brand new skin line at Collabor88 but there is something very special about this skin line… There is a new tone and she is called Exotic which I decided to use for this blog post. She is stunning on, normally I am not a tan person but how can you resist this beautiful tone. The new skin line is called Kallisto and it comes in 8 different make ups, several eyebrow choices as well as the non brow choice. She is available in Asia and Exotic.

KallistoCollage1Click here for larger image.

Tableau Vivant has two new hairstyles for Collabor88 and it is called Panther and Cheetah. Cheetah is in the second image and it comes with optional hair strands which texture changes it to any animal print. It is super pretty with the strands or without! Panther is in the first image and I am just in love with the headband, reminds me of a very boho hair style.

Imeka is at Chapter Four with a gorgeous necklace called Vintage Flower Necklace and it comes in two different types of metals of Silver or Old Gold.

Back To Black.

He left no time to regret
Kept his dick wet
With his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my guy
You went back to what you knew
So far removed from all that we went through
And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked
I’ll go back to black.

So this has been a long overdue post but I have been working on some things on the side and it is very exciting on what I am doing. I am pretty sure no one will like it but least I am having fun with it apart from the hair pulling apart moments!

Glam Affair released a gacha at Summerfest’14 called Oakley and she is gorgeous just like the name sake it was named after. One of my favourite Second Life bloggers Oakley Foxtrot! If you have not seen her stream, you really should she is one of my favourite faces in Second Life.

I tried to do a tribute to her but I know I didn’t pull it off like I wanted to, but this is just my little contribution. I admire her a lot! I had some fun learning some new things though and I went to The Chamber Society because it was the perfect spot for this picture.

In other news – Rhapsody opened up this weekend and Pixicat released this gorgeous dress which comes with a HUD controlled option to change the main part of the dress textures. There are four styles to choose from and I couldn’t resist getting all four of them!

N-core released the gorgeous shoes I am wearing at FaMESHed and it is available in noir, as always it comes with a click to match skin colour system which makes our lives so much easier! You should go demo these babies!

OaksTruthCollage2Click here for larger image.

Truth Hair released three gorgeous hairstyles called Blythe, Devinna and Dasha. They are super gorgeous to wear and I think Devinna (middle insert) is my favourite one out of the three!  The headband on Devinna is available on or off as well as texture options. Go check them out at the mainstore!

Coral & Thelma. My 200th Blog Post!

All these accidents that happen
Follow the dot
Coincidence makes sense
Only with you
You don’t have to speak
I feel
Emotional landscapes
They puzzle me.

Happy Monday everyone!

So today is a special day, well there is two special days this week but today marks my 200th post for blogging! It has made me ponder over my last 199 posts. I still look back to this day at my first post and it does make me smile on how far I have come.

When I originally started the blog it was for my friends and I, my besties which is Eli and Effi and even though they do not blog as much, they are still very  much part of The Imperfect Avatar. We voted on the names together, and discussed what we could and cannot do. Most of all, they encouraged me to do better and keep posting. I have been very blessed in Second Life by meeting some amazing people that have become my friends, and people that I get to talk to often.

I really do not think I am a great blogger because I never know what to say in posts but blogging has been a hobby for me and still is, I love to ramble aimlessly about non important things or talking about things I just love. I know I do love a lot of things in life but who doesn’t?! I do believe that I have improved in my blogging style and have learned new things which I have been applying to my posts and images. Blogging is meant to be about fun, adventure and making pretties, well to me that is what it is meant to be about anyway.

There are a lot of amazing bloggers out there in Second Life and as days/weeks/months go by, there are new bloggers and new bloggers to inspire us all. My Flickr inspires me a lot, to do better, to do a decor post or just pure inspiration. My mind gets blown away a lot by everyone’s unique styles and in Second Life being a virtual world it is a great platform for all of us to better ourselves and try things that we would never really try in real life.

My favourite bloggers and Flickr people were part of the reason on why I started the blog, when the blog was created we were just teenagers and there was no high school to go to and we we had too much time on our hands, so it just helped us provide to this idea. I remember when I had purchased the domain of the theimperfectavatar.com… I had squealed and had to run and FB message the girls and let them know. We were all so excited. When we reached 5,000 views, we had decided on to do a new theme for our blog and that was when the weekend of problems had started! We realised that we would need to get our own hosting company because WordPress.com did not allow themes from out of their collections. So then we had to find a hosting company, and then move our domain and really it was the most costly weekend I have ever had. It just felt like one problem after the next. Then we spent all week trying to fix the blog and play around with the new theme. I have to say, I was proud of our blog. So today’s post even though it does not have a song title, I am using the song that we had dedicated to our blog (this was before we realised that people really do like music on blogs!) to be today’s song which is Bjork – Joga. We found this song to be pretty fitting.

I am extremely thankful to all my friends and family for always encouraging me to do better and having my back, even when I do not think I like something and you all show me that it is actually okay and not horrible. I can’t tell you how many times I have wanted to delete an image but stop me in time. Then to the creators, designers and event organisers thank you for deeming me good enough to be part of your blogging team for either accepting or inviting me, you have no idea how much it means to me. I am thankful to all of you including the people that follow me via the blog or Flickr, all of you are amazing! My Plurk friends thanks putting up with my yay’s or nay’s on my posts because I sometimes need to know if the image is actually okay to begin with in my moments of doubt. My moments of doubt happen a lot! Each one of you have made my blogging journey amazing.

I  have a personal real life blog that I now and again have used, but it was mostly to rant about stupid things and I ended up making it a private blog because I actually made it my diary. It felt great to write down all the feelings I was having, all the problems and really, it just felt good to write down things that have been troubling me. I did not want the whole world to read about it so hence why I ended up making it private. I now and again still to this day write in it and post it but knowing that no one can ever read it, makes me feel good. Anyhoo!

So getting to the real point of this post instead of me rambling! Glam Affair and Truth Hair released some beauties at Collabor88 last week, meet Coral and she is just gorgeous, I did a main picture which is at the beginning of this post, I took my time editing the picture because I wanted to try and do better at portrait pictures! Well at least make it special for this post!

Coral comes in three skin tones of America, Artic and Asia, she also comes in 8 different make ups which has 8 eyebrow colour options and a no brow option! The image above and below shows you all the makeup options. I am just in love with the eyebrows on this skin. It’s my favourite! Even though I tend to wear nude lipstick the most, I just love the red lipstick option… I have been wearing it for days now!

Coral-Collage2Click here for larger image.

Truth Hair released this gorgeous hair called Thelma which comes with a 12 option colour choice for the headband, it also has one standard version, 2 boob options, and a unrigged version. You also have the choice to wear it without the headband! This is something else that has literally not left my head since I first put it on!

So I never thought I would reach my 200th post, like I didn’t think I would reach my 100th post but I have and I am proud of myself for still keeping up with it! Even though my real life has been super crazy in the last few months, I would of done my 200th post probably sooner! So here is to the next 100, we will see if I actually make it to my 300th post!

Hi everyone!

Second Life decided to be a brat today and it took forever just to get my inventory and what I was wearing to load! So I posted the picture on Flickr earlier without the blog link as I couldn’t do my blog post in time!

The Liaison Collaborative opened earlier this month, well earlier in April and I been wanting to do a post featuring some of the lovely items from there! I am wearing this top and skirt which is from Shai, there are several colour options or a fatpack to purchase! I couldn’t resist getting the skirt most of all as it is so boho and I just love this style of clothing. The tank top has become one of my favourite tank tops in Second Life to wear, it almost seems so real and it fits so perfectly.

Lark released these gorgeous tuscan crowns at The Liaison Collaborative as well, and there are several colour options. The earthy tones are so pretty to place on your head and it suits most hairstyles, comes with a resizer so you can adjust to each head size!

Imeka has some soft feminine poses for you there, I am using one of the poses from Imeka which is featured at The Liaison Collaborative. These collection of poses is a must have!

The Neighborhood is back this weekend and resumes on Saturday like normal! Sari-Sari will be part of this round, and has some adorable items for Saturday called Herb Garden, I have one of the items featured in this image! I just love items like this. So save your Lindens for Saturday!
