[#415] This Is My Fight Song

And I don’t really if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of life left in me

Fight Song” – Rachel PlattenListen

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and just even doing some basic research you find out some staggering statistics. As of yet there is no cure for the different types that ail women all over the world every day. Disease never takes a day off that is why there are many organizations working endlessly to help find a way to prevent this from taking yet another life.

Daughters, Sisters, Mothers, Grandmothers and friends could be at risk which it is why it is so important to spread the word. If you know someone who hasn’t had a screening in a while to check with their physician. Also if anyone reading this has ever found anything suspicious do not wait to see someone because any chance of detecting early could be difference between life and death.

Another fact that might surprise you is that women are not the only ones susceptible to having breast cancer. Yes, males themselves have a possibility of developing a type of the disease in their cells as well. It’s not as common and less talked about but it is still possible. I applaud the efforts of organizations such as Susan G. Komen and global sports organizations such as the National Football League and World Wrestling Entertainment for taking part in helping with education and awareness in the fight.

With each post I write a little bit about what blog sponsors (which I personally am not a fan of that term) are being featured and it is something I started doing recently and will continue to do because they’ve worked hard to create the products that I’ve been given to review and let you all know about.

In fact this post wouldn’t have come to light (or had less of a chance of me doing it) without the pose and prop that I’ve been given to review by Image Essentials. Their “Survivor” pose consists of 5 different poses with pink ribbon prop. Each one has a mirror pose as well so you can pick which side you prefer to photograph. It is currently at the TWE12VE event which you can find the transportation to down in the full credits.

Also being reviewed are a set of eyes from MESANGE from the Hipster Men’s Event (an event that I am very fond of) which recently started this past week. One of the things I like about having a designer benefactor that creates eyes is that you can change your eye color to something different and not have the same eyes twice unless you wanted to.

This particular adventure is one that is more on the personal side, if you’ve had someone in your family that has been diagnosed and have fought cancer head on win or lose then you know what it is like.

My intentions in creating this is to help encourage everyone to learn more and also to participate anyway you possibly can no matter how little it is. Also it is my hope that one day in my lifetime I will hear that a cure has been found not just for breast cancer but for as many or all types out there in the world.

Thank you for taking a look today and I am going to leave you with the credits and one last thing. The name of this site is These Conversations Kill and many you might have in your lifetime may in fact hurt deeply but I do hope that this particular entry will indeed help save a life.

Onto the next conversation…

FACEStray Dog – Cody 02

JEANS⊱ BlankLine – StandardJeans @ TMDNEW

Now that BlankLine has been releasing items that work with Belleza bodies I’ve been really enjoying the releases they have had at TMD. Though I have to warn anyone who might be interested in this jeans, they are lower in the back allowing for a little bit of a plumber’s view if you catch my drift. I certainly will wear a shirt when wearing them out in public because nobody wants to see my derriere. 4 different denims to choose from and belt also color changes via HUD as well.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature, and TMP mesh bodies.

SHOES⊱ SEMLLER – SLIP ON @ TMDNEW


IE – Survivor (b) (1) @ TWE12VE ♯ NEW

I think I said all that I could have said about this product in the earlier part of this entry but it certainly bares repeating. There are 5 different poses (each with mirrors) that have a pink ribbon prop. Keep in mind that yes this pose set is for ladies but I found a way to make it work for me with the pose that I used. Those of you reading and know of anyone interested in this pose grab the taxi and take them along to give it a closer look.

[#363] And You Are Where I Want To Be

In the back of my mind, well I thought my god
‘Cause all of the hell that’s in my time
But I can still see the birds
And where they went this year

Where I Want To Be” –  The Dangerous Summer  ♫Listen

One of the things as far as fashion goes that always seems to catch my interest and that 9 times out of 10 I will buy…are items with the houndstooth pattern on them. I cannot recall when it first started for me but I grew an affinity for it and now keep a look out for it in shopping guides and whenever I am at a store or event. In this entry I found two items that fit that criteria and are very well made so I felt compelled to feature them and share them with the viewers/readers of this site.

This look started with going to the Shoetopia event. Even though I did not feature the “Stray” creeper shoes from {kokoia} while the event was active, I could not find the right items to pair it with until the newest round of The Men’s Department started up and I was strolling through and found the suit from Scars (in which the jacket/shirt and trousers are sold separately so keep that in mind). I liked the quality of this suit and there were three different suit colors to choose from but what caught my eye the most was that the black jacket had a shirt included with a houndstooth pattern. I instantly thought “well now I have an outfit” and now I’m here telling you about it.

The “Slim Fit” suit from Scars comes in Standard sizes but I made it fit easily with the alpha cuts on the Gianni body. It looks great in combination with the creepers. Makes for one stylish gentleman, don’t you think?

While I’m still sorting through the items from the Men Only Hunt 9, I thought I would give you a look at the “Jaxx” skin from 7 Deadly s{k}ins. It comes in the caramel tone and also provides skin appliers for just about all types of bodies which means if you haven’t been out there hunting for items, this is one stop you should make if you were to. I totally encourage doing the hunt, it’s not every day that designer’s put out items at no cost other than group gifts every now and then.

Speaking of gifts, Exile just redid their main location and are offering the “Tommy” hair for the fellas and the “Gina” for the gals. The hairs come complete with all the color HUDS included so you have all of them at your disposal. After taking a moment to think about it, Tommy and Gina are names that are used in the Bon Jovi classic “Living On A Prayer”. I find that really clever but I’m sure I wasn’t the first to notice this either.

Also a part of this look are the MESANGE “Roseland Eyes” which were a part of The Chapter Four event which is now over but you can grab them at their main location in the credits below. There are 15 different iris colors and a HUD that controls the mesh eyes that are included as well as Omega enabled eyes that you may have.

For the second entry in a row I have used a backdrop from SEUL’S “#scenes” gacha machine from The Epiphany as well as a different pose from the “Kai” pose set by Image Essentials that is currently available at the TWE12VE event to complete the look and scene that you see above.

Now that you know some of what went into this entry, I’ll leave you with the credits so that you yourself can take a taxi to the stores and events that were a part of this installment.

As always until next time, keep it stylish fellas!
