Seething – LOTD #267

LOTD 267~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ok, so it’s been another while since I did a LOTD post.  I’m trying to get back into the swing of things and I put together a picture.  I uploaded it to Flickr, and then tried to embed it into my blog, as I have done since I got Flickr.

I usually make my LOTD photos private, that way they don’t show up on my Flickr feed until after the blog post has published.  Except now it doesn’t work that way.  -.-

Flickr has changed the rules without any notice once again.  Now in order to embed a photo I have to make it public.  Which is what I was doing, but AFTER my blog post published.  There are those of us who like to work ahead, and have our posts scheduled, rather than hitting ‘publish’ as soon as we are done.  There is something called a ‘guest pass’ that is supposed to let you have an embed code for a private photo, but I couldn’t get it to work correctly (or at least, it may work as Flickr intended, but it doesn’t work as I need it to).

So now, I have two choices – I can make my photos public in order to obtain the embed code so I can add them to my blog post, or I can find an alternative to Flickr. Well, three choices, I suppose – one other being that I could go back to just uploading my pics directly to WordPress.

I originally began adding the photos to Flickr and then embedding them in order to save space on my free WordPress account – you only get 3GB of storage with WordPress, which goes pretty quick when you are taking hi-res photos with large file sizes.

After scanning my way through the mind-numbing Flickr forum, it appears the change was triggered because the embed code they provided violated their own TOS.  (I’m still not clear on why.)

I’ll have to do a few more photos and see what option I think is the best for me.  I can upgrade my WP account to get more space – perhaps once I get closer to the limit, it might be worth it.  We shall see.

In the meantime, my photo turned out to be pretty prophetic – I was seething myself by the time I figured all of this out!!  Instead of 15-20 minutes, I spent several hours reading and searching.  Gah!

The rain poured down, drenching her.

Her tears fell freely.

This dress has been waiting patiently in my inventory for me for over a month.

It was at a previous round of The Instruments, and when I saw, I knew I had to have it.

You get not only the gown, which is gorgeous, but all the effects as well.

There is a second over-gown that simulates the effect of rain washing over the gown.

You also get a storm cloud, lightning, a rain puddle, and raindrop splash back, all of which you see in the photo.

(I added the rain in Photoshop, because the photo I took using actual rain in SL was eaten by my computer. -.-)

I absolutely love the gorgeous color of this dress, and having the effects to add to it just made me love it more.

And thanks to Argrace, I had this fabulous wet hairstyle, which just adds to the overall effect.

Also, I just realized that I can use the effects (which are wearable) in a routine if I wanted to.

So – bonus!

It’s amazing what I find when I go inventory diving. 😛

“What?” she demanded.

Still laughing, he pointed at her shoes.

LOTD 180

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m still in the process of organizing my mess of an inventory.

I’ve done so much shopping in the last few weeks it’s crazy.

I have stuff I forgot I had!

I went to the last round of My Attic @ The Deck and picked up some really neat items at some crazy prices.

Like this pool from Winx & Flair.

At only 95L, it was a complete steal.

Who doesn’t want/need a pool?

It comes with several different colored towels and cushions you can rez, along with a cute splash effect.

It was the perfect backdrop for this amazing bikini from Luxuria (also at My Attic).

I’m wearing the system version here, but it also comes with appliers for your mesh bod.

The necklace is another great find from Yummy at No21.

I love charm necklaces and this one is just adorable. 😀

Although it’s a poolside pic, I couldn’t resist adding these shoes from Essenz.

To celebrate a FB milestone, the San Jose heels were given as a group gift.

My eyes are from Dulce Secrets from this round of Designer Showcase.

I love the color and the reflections in them.

The item that really inspired this look was this amazing hair from Argrace.

I saw someone wearing it on a post on ASN and I just fell in love with it.

I love the wet, fresh from the water look.

I knew I had the perfect prop from oOo Studios – a towel with poses built in.

If you’ve never been to oOo Studios, you should go immediately – she does some really amazing poses.

The towel is also texture change, so it is a very versatile piece.

With my summer winding to a close, I thought I’d take the chance to spend some time by my virtual pool.

Now all I need is a good book and a frozen drink!

LOTD #131 – The Enchantress

LOTD 131The crowd stood transfixed as she raised herself in the air.

She hovered between the statues, words of power dripping from her lips.

Her arms rose as the air crackled with energy.

She began the chant, a smile on her lips and malice in her heart.

I’m still busily working through my inventory.

This week I’m focusing on items that I’ve picked up in the last several months at various events.

If you haven’t heard yet, and you’re a Purple Moon fan (and who isn’t, right?!), there is an Easter hunt going on right now at the store.

Head on over and pick up some great items!

This sassy little number is a corset I picked up from Zenith (I’d tell you what event, but frankly, I can’t recall).

The gold accents are fantastic and the hourglass figure provided by the corset is to die for!
