Look No. 524: Silent All These Years But Now It's Time To Say #METOO


Hello again my lovelies!

Before I get to what I'm featuring in this post, I'd like to bring up a somewhat difficult subject. Today, on Facebook, I read a very disturbing post. Since it was revealed that Harvey Weinstein had sexually harassing women. Scores of famous actresses have started to come out and speak about their sexual harassment by Mr. Weinstein. Then within the last week, I started seeing several of my female friends posting this:


#MeToo
If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote "Me too." as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.



Well, in my early 20s (I'm 41 now), when I was in college, I was sexually harassed myself by a man who I considered one of my best friends. I was devastated and no one believed me except for my family. It took an emotional breakdown and years and years of therapy to heal from it. So naturally I joined in and posted the "#MeToo" post.

Well,  I don't know what transpired but apparently, one of my friends made the same post and was blasted for it and called an attention whore for using the hashtag. To sum up her response to that criticism is that now that the sexual harassment of women is being taken seriously, it's time for the everyday women who have experienced sexual harassment to step out of the shadows and stand up behind all these famous women and bring this subject to the forefront and not let it sit back in the shadows like it has been for all these years. Most importantly, the hashtag is a way to let each other, and those who are still hiding in the shadows, know that we are not alone and we shouldn't feel ashamed for having experienced a demeaning and devastating event. We need to stand up and fight and in the words of my friend, "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! #METOO".

For those of you reading this and have been sexually harassed in any way, I hope that you will not be afraid to step out of the shadows and make the above post as your post on social media to let others know that they are not alone. For those of you who have been lucky enough to never have been sexually harassed, I hope that you will encourage anyone you know who has not been so lucky to not be afraid to face it and admit it. There are millions of women out there who know what you have been through.

In this post I'm bringing you anyBODY (closes on the October 30th) exclusives from Indented and SlackGirl, eBento-The Event (closes on October 31st) exclusives from Sintiklia and Denver's Shapes. I hope you like what I have to show you.

Until next time...happy shopping!

Look No. 523: #SecondLifeChallenge - My Zodiac Sign is Cancer. What's Yours?


Hello again my lovelies!

Once again, the awesome Strawberry Singh has called out for another #SecondLifeChallenge called "My Zodiac Sign". It's basically answering a few questions where you reveal a few things about you and your zodiac sign. This is my response to her #SecondLifeChallenge.

At first I had thought that I would respond with both my RL and SL birthdays but decided not to because I thought I was nothing like my SL zodiac sign until I started reading more into it. So, this is both my RL and SL response to Ms. Singh's #SecondLifeChallenge.

My Zodiac Sign in SL:
  1. What is your zodiac sign? My Rez Day is April 9th so that makes me an Aries
  2. Do you believe in astrology and read your horoscope often? I do believe in astrology but I don't read my horoscope often.
  3. What are some of the traits of your zodiac sign and do you feel they reflect who you are?
  • Strengths: Courage, determination, self-confidence and enthusiasm - I'm pretty courageous and determined. I'm working on the self-confidence and I can be enthusiastic about certain things.
  • Weaknesses: Impatience, silly arguments, allowing fear to limit choices - I am all these...lol!
  • Likes: Animals, healthy food, books, nature and cleanliness - I love animals, reading, being outside on a glorious day and I'm a germaphobe. As far as healthy foods...it's what I eat but I hate it.
  • Dislikes: Rudeness, asking for help and taking center stage - I can't stand rude people, I don't like to ask for help (hence why I get overwhelmed a lot) and I'm a blogger...of course I like taking center stage.

My Zodiac Sign in RL:
  1. What is your zodiac sign? I was born on July 6th and that makes me a Cancer.
  2. Do you believe in astrology and read your horoscope often? I do believe in astrology but I don't read my horoscope often.
  3. What are some of the traits of your zodiac sign and do you feel they reflect who you are?
  • Strengths: Tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, emotional, sympathetic and persuasive - I am definitely tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, emotional and sympathetic. I'm not sure if I am persuasive...I'll have to give this one some thought.
  • Weaknesses: Moody, suspicious, pessimistic, manipulative and insecure - I'm definitely NOT pessimistic. I always try to look at the glass as always half full. I'm also not manipulative...yeah, not that girl. But I'm most definitely moody and suspicious. I can be insecure at times.
  • Likes: Art, home-based hobbies, relaxing near or in water, helping loved ones and a good meal with friends - A big hearty YES to all these!

If you want to take part in this challenge I hope you will. Again, this is not just for bloggers. If you don't blog, just leave your answers in the comments of Strawberry Singh's blog post for this challenge. She'll love to hear what you have to say.

Now, let's talk about what I have to show in this post. {ViSion} -S&F is at The Epiphany (closes on November 15th) with a beautiful gacha exclusive, G&D is at Black Fair (ends on October 20th) with a very sexy pair of heels, Bubble is participating at The Underdog Event (ends on November 4th),  I have a great pair of eyes from CNZ that you can find at the eBento-The Event (closes on October 31st), Dark Passions-Koffin Nails is at Season of the Witch (ends on November 4th) and [west end] is at The Chapter Four that closes on November 1st.

I do have a CORRECTION and apology to make. In my October 12th blog post, I had featured a pair of heels from MODA Designs. I mistakenly said that they were an exclusive at Kinky Event and they are not. The Dakota Heels are actually a Bound Box exclusive. So, with that said, I'd like to extend my sincerest apology to Eonla (owner/designer of MODA Designs), the creators of Bound Box and most especially to  you, my readers, for my mistake. Going forward, I will try my best to not let this happen again.

I hope you like what I have to show you. Until next time...happy shopping!
