They reach beside
A leech to find
I dreamed of this so long
This used to feel so strong
Default, ♫(Taking My) Life Away♫
For the last couple days I felt like I was in a very small creative block (or hole). I had an outfit (which I changed a little bit from the original plan) but no real idea what kind of scenery I wanted but I had a bit of a resurgence and took a few things I had not used yet and combined it with some new things and the results were actually as good as I hoped they’d be.
Default (the band) has always been high on my list of Canadian musicians that I’ve enjoyed listening to since as long as I can remember. One of the memories I have as a late teenager (yeah I hate putting a date on myself but can’t properly tell a story without it), going to see the band at a summer festival before they had truly made it big nationally. One of the things that I enjoy is being able to say that I’ve been a fan of a band before they hit big. It’s a small brag of course but it’s kinda cool to discover stuff before the majority (there are several bands I can say this about that are very popular currently).
The formation of the idea of this blog kinda has been circling in my brain long before this (I just didn’t know how I wanted to implement it). Tucking ideas away for a rainy day is something I do often and that way when a pose set or a backdrop comes out that fits the mold then I take advantage of what there is to work with. The Men Jail is set to open next week and Lush Poses is releasing two new pose sets and the one I am using for this scene is called “Shinedown” which is also the name of a band that I love so this just makes this that much better for me.
“Shinedown” is a set of 6 poses to which some of them have mirrors but the gist of these poses is that they are laying poses (most of which are from a face down position with one being a face up pose). I think that it played into the part of the song that speaks of dreaming as I found a really cool and colorful bed by Kei Spot from the Zodiac event to contrast the color of my clothing which I’ll get into here in a moment.
The last few months I’ve seen the poses that Lush Poses creates have impressed me and I’ve been able to hammer out some nice photos using them this one included. My advice would be to look them up on Flickr or visit The Men Jail when it opens on April 08th and find out yourself just what I’m talking about.

Lapointe & Bastchild (more specifically it’s SWEAR label) has a “henley” that many of you probably already have but if you don’t then I might have added something to your shopping list for this weekend. The attention that this store gives to its items as far as HUDs with many colors to choose from giving many options to pair with just about any color pants or denim jeans.
I know that I’ll be able to pair it with just about anything because it fits really great which is also another reason why L&B is one of my favorite stores. While now I am a blogger for them but going along with what I’ve said concerning Default, I’ve been a fan of there’s for a long time (years to be exact). The interactions I’ve had with both owners as well as their customer service over the time is everything a store should be, they treat their customers right.
For my outfit I paired the shirt with the latest pair of jeans from TORI TORRICELLI named the “Atlas Jeans”. While I am predominantly a blogger now that is on a budget, being in the group I was able to get a discount on the FATPACK before the April round of TMD even begins (which is where it will be at starting later today 04/05).
Going with a shade of blue for the shirt and the purple into an acid washed style of the jeans was just the right contrast to set the scene with the Kei Spot bed. Everything came together nicely and I’m really proud of the results of this scene/photo.

One last piece that I utilized that is not a new product but as a lock&tuft blogger I am going to give it some love because I myself love this hair. The “Ruined” hair has a bit of age on it but it still stands up to the test of time and there are not as many colors in the pack as their are in current hair products but there are still many staple colors that make it worthwhile.
This hair also comes with a blindfold which is not show here but it is meant for the kink crowd (as there are some rather naughty words printed on said blindfold). I like this hair because it’s a longer hair that’s just the right length and doesn’t cover my face for the type of shot I wanted to take here. I’m all for older releases of hairs and I’ve had this hair for a good while, obviously long before I began to blog for the store.
lock&tuft – Ruined Hair (FatPack)
- Original mesh
- 60 different hairs (3 different HUDs)
- Blindfold version included
- HUD for Blindfold contains 4 different sayings (8 colors per saying)
- Grab it right now at the lock&tuft mainstore!
On that note I think I have covered all the things I wanted to cover and hope that a few people find this post useful and even potentially check out some of what I’ve blogged here. Blogging the items I enjoy is very much worthwhile and I believe in them or why would I blog them? So much great things out there right now events wise.
I’ll get to what I can so that you stay apprised of what’s out there in the virtual world. Until the next time I will catch you on the flipside!
