I’ve been waiting to smile,
Been holding it in for a while,
Take you with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
Imagine Dragons, ♫On Top Of The World♫
Wow…that’s the word that would best describe the first two weeks of this year so far. I could try to explain it in greater detail but I feel like I would likely get close to novella type proportions by describing everything that’s gone on. The fact is that I have been really getting back something I thought might have been lost somewhere along the way last year; it just needed a jump start.
Part of this resurgence is my constant work with items from Pose Fair. Many of the items have given me a lot of ideas and I have some for things I haven’t blogged yet but hope to get to now that I fulfilled the main things that have been asked of me. Killing it would be the best way to say in regards to the fair and I feel like a kid in a candy store. I love having brands with clothing as partners but I think in ways I really get inspired most by poses so it makes sense that I am inspired so much by this event.
The other part is the support and encouragement I’ve received from Brenna, Lucky and several others that are a part of my little tribe. I know the people with which I can count on and I know that if I ask for their advice that I would get a straight answer without any bs responses that would cater to what I wanted to hear and that’s something anyone would want out of their people.
I also earned a new brand partner which as soon as there is a new item to blog I will talk about it more and truthfully I am still pinching myself believing that it actually happened but it shows me that hard work pays off even when you least expect it to which is why I chose “On Top Of The World” by Imagine Dragons as my soundtrack for this blog entry. It is my current state of mind and also there is a line in it about paying dues and as a blogger I know I pay them all the time without ever really wanting anything in return.
The hairstyle I have on is the latest release at TMD by Modulus, which is of course a favorite brand (not just saying it because I blog for them but I do consider the teams I am apart of favorites as well as being passionate about them). “Miles” is a short style that has a few little strands of hair that run along the eyebrow region.
Out of the latest release that Modulus has made I figured this worked best as my pixels are parked on top of the fictional version of the CN Tower, aka Bad Unicorns “Tower 6”. To be completely honest though the real me would never be that brave to try and find a way to just chill on top of a huge place like that without a parachute mainly because I’m deathly afraid of heights; it’s a good thing nothing happens if you accidentally fall off something tall in Second Life.
Landing is not impactful nor will it cause permanent damage to you.

For The Men Jail I have two items in my style to share and I will start with the “Isis Eyes” by Madame Noir. I have to say that this are definitely more for fantasy looks but I like them so much I really didn’t care (as I don’t really do those kinds of photos although I should). Each color has a metallic feel to it which works great with many lighting sources to pull out their intensity.
The jacket I have on is from Kaju, I wore a sweater from this store in the blog that featured me doing insane sledding. This item is called the “Eric Jacket” and is an open styled jacket with a shirt that has 6 different colors for each part in the FATPACK version. Kaju in the last few rounds of TMJ have put out some great items that I have been excited about showing off and I hope this trend continues. I hope that readers of this blog check this store out and give them some love and support because I definitely feel they deserve it.

Sometimes with events I get introduced to stores that I may have never heard of before or know very little about. To me that is akin to listening to the radio or going on YouTube to watch videos and finding new music to listen to that I am likely to become a fan of. So for this round of Pose Fair I have been introduced to a store called POSIES, which I have the honor of blogging their “Men Mood Sits” pose pack.
Sitting poses are tricky sometimes because I always feel like if I use them with a piece of furniture that already has poses, it is somewhat like false advertising because if someone chooses to go look for the furniture in the photo and tests out the poses while not finding the pose that I used it can be very disappointing I imagine. Being that there is not any poses in the tower, I am able to use this set without feeling guilty or leading someone astray.
One of the best things I like about this set is that it offers mirror poses (some sides photograph better just like in real life) and also has versions for short and tall avatars. That truly is an amazing thing that I think could be considered by pose creators in the future as not everyone is the same height on the grid (there are short avatars; some that are mid sized like myself and then there are some that could give the Jolly Green Giant a run for his money).
POSIES – Men Mood Sit Pose Pack
- Bento enabled poses (bento viewer required)
- 10 poses in all
- Short, Tall and Mirror variations included
- Exclusively @ Pose Fair until 01/31/19
I hope the positivity of this pose carries on to anyone reading this because good things can happen when you least expect them too. This is definitely something that I hope I don’t come down from and that all of the inspiration, support and encouragement that I receive from those closest to me and also the blogger community when it applies can be given back in any way I possibly can.
Perhaps on social media finding another blogger’s posting and sharing it with a kind word sometime during this week is a challenge I issue to myself and to those visiting and reading this post. Appreciation can go a long way and how fair it goes is up to everyone. On that note, I am finishing this one up and going to figure out what’s next.
Keep the conversations going and have some fun browsing and shopping all the latest events! Until next time…
