“Feeling my way through the darkness Guided by a beating heart I can’t tell where the journey will end But I know where to start
They tell me I’m too young to understand They say I’m caught up in a dream Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes Well that’s fine by me
So wake me up when it’s all over When I’m wiser and I’m older All this time I was finding myself And I didn’t know I was lost”
There are sooo many events coming up and ICKY is taking part in quite a bit of them..soo exciting! Exciting does come with work tho and work comes with exhaustion, boooooooo. I am super stoked to get out all the new releases soon and I am working super hard on every piece…which is why this will be a short post today, so please, do understand. Imma hard working woman!
“So you wanna play with magic
Boy, you should know what you’re falling for
Baby do you dare to do this
Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse
Are you ready for, ready for
A perfect storm, perfect storm
Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine
There’s no going back”
I am on a K. Perry bandwagon right now…but hey, that is o.k.!
I was super excited for this round of The Deck. There is sooo much winter goodness to go around. One of my favorites for this round is the Sweater Dresses from DeeTaleZ. They come in 3 colors sand, grey, and black. I was going to wear some new fall boots with this dress initially but decided to wear the heels for the Slink Medium Feet by Cherry..I bought them in Black Glitter and they looked just as good with this dress as the boots did. I wanted to show off this new pose I got from Diesel Works tho so the heels did end up looking super sexy with it!
“This is the part of me That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no This is the part of me That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no Throw your sticks and your stones, throw your bombs and your blows But you’re not gonna break my soul This is the part of me That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no”
Old song yes but it fit perfect with this look and reminded me so much of Katy Perry’s video for this song! Have you heard about the new “CBone” or “Fitted” mesh being talked about by Linden Lab? I am super excited for this to come to the grid and you can read more about it on Strawberry Singh’s post here.
So, for those of you who haven’t seen these pants by LeeZu yet, these are cute aren’t they?? But would you call them pants? Maybe. Maybe not…I have not seen anything like these yet on the grid. They are, in fact, boots. Boots with pants attached. I thought these were such an awesome idea and so creative! These boot/pants are material enabled as well and look great in photo’s. You can get them exclusively @ Shoetopia.
“Sometimes it’s hard to find the words to say
I’ll go ahead and say them anyway
Forget your balls and grow a pair of tits
It’s hard, it’s hard, it’s hard out here for a bitch
It’s hard, for a bitch (for a bitch)
For a bitch, it’s hard
It’s hard out here for a bitch
It’s hard, for a bitch (for a bitch)
For a bitch, it’s hard
It’s hard out here”
Today I wanted to showcase the new feet by Slink! These are the “Sky High Feet” and are making their debut @ The Shoetopia Event right now. There are also 2 pairs of add-on shoes for these new feet @ The Shoetopia event and one new pair of add-on shoes @ The Slink Mainstore.
I have not always been a super huge fan of The Sugar Garden skins in the past. I am subscribed to the updater tho and got the notice last night that there was a new skin released, Bunny. I decided what the hell. I purchased Bunny and some new brows as well. I have always bought my brows from .tsg. and was excited to use them on an actual tsg skin. For some reason though, I do think I have one skin from here from a long time ago. I have no idea. Yes, I am too lazy to look right now and just too “down” to do so atm. I was told by a blogger of Shoetopia that the Shoetopia event would be opening at 12 am slt on the 15th. I waited up for 6 hours so that I could get in and out since I will be super busy IRL for the next couple days I wanted to blog a few things from there and get it accomplished and put off my checklist. Upon writing Anessa Stine, the owner of Shoetopia, she informed me that the event opens @ 12pm slt. She did apologize for the mis-information that the blogger had told me and was very nice. I was hoping she would let me sneak in for a minute but oh well.

I chose to use this outfit today to show u an example of how I would approach an event with heavy traffic and lag. We all know that the more scripts and attachments we wear , the more lag we put ourselves and others through. This can be frustrating as we want to look adorable 24/7…and hearing that we need to lighten scripts and attachments automatically puts this hairless, naked noob in our heads! You don’t have to risk your appearance completely but it is a good idea to tone it down…a lot. What I am wearing in this photo is perfectly reasonable in my opinion. Here are a couple tips to help reduce lag for yourself and fellow fashioner’s at events, while still looking your best!
*Wear texture clothing. I suggest a cute lingerie set or bodysuit.
*Detach ALL huds! This is super important since huds carry the most scripts. This includes your “AO”. Do not simply turn your AO off but detach it completely.
YOU CAN ALSO MAKE SOME QUICK CHANGES TO YOUR GRAPHICS SETTINGS via Ctrl + P:
*Keep your graphics settings on low but turn your Objects & Sculpts LOD to at least “2″
*Turn on avatar impostors under graphics settings via Ctrl + P.
*Set your Max. # of non-impostor avatars to “1″. This will make everyone’s avi look a little low quality but will enhance the performance.
*Under Level of Distance Factors, turn sliders all the way down for Flexiprims, Avatars, Trees, and Terrain.
*Draw Distance settings should be set between 80-96. Lowering too much will not help but can make your lag worse.
Hope this helps! Remember, Shoetopia opens today, November 15th @ 12pm slt. I will provide the slurls below! (Links still broken so just copy and paste the link)
These adorable gummy bears, by 22769 ~ [bauwerk], were released about a month ago @ The Candy Fair but I am just now pulling them out since I put a few up @ the ICKY Mainstore (open soon btw!)
In other newness…get it? New-Ness… Gah Whatever! Boom has just released these AWESOME hair bows, and in the PERFECT color packs. I bought the “Aranel’s Favorites” pack, which comes in Petal Pink (the one I am wearing), Tiffany, and Sugar…all my favorite colors too! Each color comes with pig tail versions too.
Lastly,CandyDoll released these girly pumps last week and I literally wanted to grab them up in every color! Since, we all know how expensive that can be, it gets hard to choose just one color. BUT…..these pumps can easily be chosen in any color and can still be suitable for most outfits since they do contain a hud that allows you to change the spikes to three different metals, the sole to different colors, the knot to 20 different colors and the bow to 20 different colors! Buying black, nude, or white in these would be a super good idea.

Y’all know I am obsessed with some Em..so I had to at least include one of his latest tracks in a post. If you haven’t picked up Em’s new album yet then don’t speak to me…LOL! Kidding! Who needs albums anymore when we have Youtube? Unless you still have a CD player in your car and in that case def do not speak to me. Yea that was a joke too. Lame? Maybe. I didn’t take the opportunity to be someone else for Halloween last night so I figured I would act like a “snobby my-shit-don’t-stink bitch” today. Did my jokes pull it off well? Probably not but eh I tried.
Ok let’s check out some goodies that have been on my desktop for a week!
The top I am wearing in this post is not for today’s FaMESHed but was from last months round. I have been so busy that I didn’t get a chance to blog it but promised myself that I would eventually and for all of you that know me, you know that eventually means very last minute. The top is from Cracked Mirror and it comes in 6 colors, this one being my favorite. I like how the shirt is semi transparent as it makes me feel all dressed up but sexy at the same time!
I am pretty sure these boots from Flite are now sold out, since there were only 100 pairs of each color sold. So I am sorry if I am teasing but I did mean to do this post as soon as they were released! My bad. :O Keep your eye on Flite though. I had a very good experience with the boots and the hud was very simple to use.
Lastly, I want to blab a tiny bit about this backpack from [Howl] @ bonne chance. This is the limited edition “Duck Sack” and is, indeed, a gacha item. I played the dang machine 28 times until I got one rare and ,of course, my luck gives me the “Sports” Rare sack so I passed it to the hubby. He was gracious but felt bad for me so he played it 392804 times and got me the Rare I wanted! The Rare sack I am wearing is “Food”. I do have the Pumpkin Rare @ Bazaar Yardsale if you would like to go grab it.

Like these quotes? They are so true aren’t they?! I picked a few that were perfect for what is going on right now in my SLife! To make a long story short, Abe & I are going through hell with Failtown (Wintown for those of you who have never or recently started reading my blog) yet again. I know since all the legal aspects are supposed to be kept “private” I cannot discuss, in detail, all the charges that were pressed against this person in real life. Simply put, I was stalked not only in SL but in RL too by a particular person that goes by the name “Wintown” or I found out most recently “Wintoon” or “Wintoown” one or the other. Wintown is obsessive. Wintown is compulsive. Wintown is obnoxious. Wintown is a perjurer. Above all, Wintown has had a completely negative affect on my life, both rl and sl.
Just yesterday, someone I used to look up to and admire fondly wrote a blog post about Abe & I and how she knew positively absolutely that Abe is Wintown. I am gathering piece by piece where this even started from. I saw that Wintown made another one of his “blogs” (if that is what you want to call his bashing sites) ripping away at Juicybomb, in world she is known as GoGo or her SL name, Juicy Littlething. I am not even going to get in to what the bashing was about but you can read about it by looking on Juicybombs site…I will not provide neither links here. I was putting some updates on Facebook earlier when I see a blog post shared by Juicybomb pop up….with me and Abe’s name on the title. So basically, GoGo made a blog post stating that Abe is Wintown and he is the one that wrote these things on that blog about her. Although I wasn’t too surprised that she was claiming they were the same person (Wintown claims to be Abe frequently), I was completely shocked by her rude and ignorant remarks she put out for everyone to read. She said things like I sent her notecards repeatedly and I was very demanding. She didn’t even explain what notecards she is referring to or what was even included in these “demanding” notecards I supposedly sent her. TBH, I don’t remember sending her a notecard in world…ever. However, if I did I am sure it was something along the lines of asking her to add me to her blogroll. I have never even spoken with GoGo up until about a month ago when I wrote her a private message on Facebook asking if I could get an invite to her yardsale group and she replied very nicely saying sure. That is the ONLY communication between her and myself.
I was very hurt by her accusations and words. I commented on her Facebook post and this is a screen shot of what was said.
As you can see, she has a couple followers saying some very ignorant things along with her. Calling us “idiots” and calling Abe “freak”. I NEVER , in a million years, thought that the person I looked up too for 2 years was such an ignorant, mindless, human being. As you can see in the posts above, I did ask her for proof of her claims and at that point she stopped writing and I never did get a response. She still has yet to show her “proof”. I am almost positive that Wintown simply told her he was Abram Violet, gave her an IP that he said was registered to Abram, and said where he lived. If that is not the case then she definitely got her info from one of Wintown’s sites. Wintown has an obsession with putting out peoples real life info and displaying it to the public, along with their real life photo’s. However, Wintown backs himself up….he does this by “doxing himself”. He has used Abram as his fallback for a very long time since this horror with him has started. He doesn’t tell people he runs these sites. His minions will say they run it and they doxed Wintown and Wintown is Abram…when all along, these sites are run by Wintown. People have fallen for it in the past and we have been through this before..explaining what this asshole is capable of. I just can’t believe GoGo has a brain so small to not realize she is being trolled…badly. Again, this is only theory on how she came up with this whole debacle but she will not release her “proof” to us nor the public so your credibility turns to shit. The people commenting above on the status are so oblivious it’s not even funny! All in all, I am very saddened that GoGo has stooped so slow her lips are against my stiletto’s. You should NEVER blast someone’s name unless you have first spoken with the person or have cold hard evidence from a source other than a person they faced in a real court. Evidence other than someone from Kinggoon. Evidence from someone…other than a troll for goodness sake!
I tried to message GoGo on Facebook explaining that woman to woman, what she did was wrong. My REAL family was put in danger by the death threats Wintown sent through mail. Yet, she thinks it is a joke. Here is what I think…and I hope GoGo is reading this. I THINK THAT GOGO IS A GOOD PERSON..A GOOD PERSON THAT WAS BLINDED AND MADE A HUGE MISTAKE BEFORE THINKING THOROUGHLY. FROM ONE WOMAN TO ANOTHER GOGO, HOW WOULD U FEEL IF YOUR FAMILY WAS PUT IN DANGER BY THIS PERSON? YOUR CHILD AS WELL… HOW WOULD IT MAKE YOU FEEL IF YOU WENT THROUGH THE HELL MY FAMILY WENT THROUGH WITH THIS PERSON AND SOMEONE ACCUSED YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND OF THESE THINGS? HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF PEOPLE CALLED YOU NAMES BECAUSE SOMEONE DECIDED TO MAKE THESE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST YOU? WOULD YOU CALL IT BULLYING? I THINK WHAT WINTOWN SAID ABOUT YOU ON HIS BLOG POST WAS COMPLETE BULLYING AND TERRIBLY WRONG. IF YOU STILL THINK YOU STAND CORRECT AND ARE SHOWING GOOD MORAL JUDGEMENT TO YOUR READERS, THEN GOOD LUCK TO YOU!
