I Never Claimed to be Saint…

By – PunKnPrettYsl. Visit I Never Claimed to be Saint… for original post.

Lately I’ve been in this kind of dark place in my life. I’m missing someone, a lot, going through a bunch of changes, and have some huge decisions to make about my life. I’ve really been stopping to reevaluate and reassess most aspect of my sl and rl lately. 

My name is Frost, there’s a reason I’ve got that name and I didn’t give it to myself. I’m known to be cold, aloof, distant… And I’ve never much minded people having that opinion of me. Might have even encouraged it. 



But the truth is, I do have emotions. I don’t show them often or to many people but when I do let someone in they see I am a lot less ice than I project. Well, now I’m opening up to you all… I really wanted to push right into that in this piece. And as a writer and photographer, well, I get to do that and make it into art. Which is kinda awesome. 

I think exploring different places is one of my favourite things about being a blogger. Finding cool places that fit every different mood you could possibly have, it’s a job perk. There’s sims for happy, for crazy, for rockin, for sad, for angry… And that’s a dream for photography and blogging because you don’t always have to be happy to produce art. 


In fact, some of the best art comes from pain, sadness, and loneliness, in my opinion. So being in the slightly darker mood I’ve been in I went searching for a place to suit that and the look I’d put together for it. I stumbled upon the amazingly cool Beck, One Caress which is a lovely, flooded, fantasy sort of place suited to the mood I’ve been keeping lately. This stone structure drew me to it right away and and decked out in my C88 (mostly) clothes, Dark Passions Koffin Nails, and 7 Deadly S{k}in, I had, even in the slightly darker mood I was in, a soppingly good time with this one. 

So this is me being me. Imperfect, making mistakes, showing my flaws. Because after a while, you get so tired of all those standards people hold you up to and just want to rest for a little while. No, I never claimed to be a saint. So I’m done trying to live up to the expectations of one…

London Calling…

By – PunKnPrettYsl. Visit London Calling… for original post.

Well I thought I thought really no better way to start off PunKnPrettY than with my sis, inspiration, and mentor.. Shari the Cat.. For Shari’s own take on this and many, many other amazing things go here to link to her Blog “SharitheCat”

And since she’s a bit alternative like I am most of the time we start with the Punk part of PunKnPrettY… though in my opinion, it’s still quite pretty as well. 


Artic Monkeys and Sex Pistols (on myself and Shari respectively)… can you really get better? Depends on your taste! This dress pack from Keresma called Brit Pop Outfit comes in Not only those two bands but many of England’s greats like: David Bowie, The Rolling stones, The Stone Roses, Radiohead, Oasis and Amy Winehouse (To me most of those are Brit Rock but different strokes n all that…). 
Some of the skirts are different colours and as you can see some of the shirts are as well, but each dress outfit is one piece; top, skirt and suspenders built in. Fab for a quick punkrock look that will make you feel like a rockstar yourself. Or maybe that’s just my ego… 


The sim we’re on is called TARDIS NLF BAD WOLF, which is fitting for 2 Brit’s and a Who-vian like myself.. Fab place if you want to check it out!

We had so much fun taking these shots we literally couldn’t stop till we both realized I’d not eaten dinner (1130 at night) and sis Shari should’ve been in bed hours ago… 


So that’s it for the first step of PunKnPrettY and major thanks to Shari the Cat for lending me her expertise and, well, herself.. to take these photos! I ended on this last shot cause I think it was just about where she was ready to push me off the roof…. I mean.. What are sisters for but mentoring you then throwing you off tall buildings? 


Special thanks again to my lovely sis ShariTheCat: http://sharithecat.blogspot.co.uk/

PrettY Lake Starlight

There are some AMAZING shopping events and fairs in SL each and every Month. Weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly… All these events ensure that no matter when it is, if shopping is your SL passion, you can always find something to tickle your fancy. 

Some of my favourites I’ve visited in recent days that left me drooling with a Linden bank account seriously depleted are Uber and Cosmopolitan. 

To blog my recent Uber purchases, this post would come to the length of a Game of Thrones book. I’m pretty sure even my eyes would glaze over after a bit let alone yours! So I’ve chosen to pick and choose and break them up into a few different posts. Hopefully I can get a few in before my favourite time of month and my blogging super-dream… Luxe Box. 

But we’ve still a few days till Luxe so how about a dress from Cosmopolitan and hair from Uber for now? 


This Dela hair from Uber and Ricielli dress from Cosmopolitan caught my eyes immediately and stood out among the MANY purchases I made at these events. Against the backdrop of the starlit lake of the Vintage Romance sim I fell in love with the look… 
This sim is beautiful and if you’d like to check it out you can find it here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Vintage%20Romance/38/122/21

I think I’ll need to bring my boyfriend back and explore some more of the romantic aspects of Vintage Romance!

No Fear in the Fallout…

By – PunKnPrettYsl. Visit No Fear in the Fallout… for original post.

The other day, while I was looking for nails to wear on my Maitreya hands (sadly my Doctor Who/Brit Flag nails were only for my slink hands…) I was shown [DP], or Dark Passions in the long form. They’ve a collection of REALLY cool nails of all sorts and I bought a few of them. While looking I also found this cute punky-style Tweedle Dress and since I can’t resist ANYTHING having to do with Alice in Wonderland, no matter how loose the connection, I snatched it up in an instant.

Set against the backdrop of the post-apocalyptic Wastelands sim I sat down to have a little relaxing while others around battled it out. *Yawn* Are those gunshots I hear? Oh well.. Think I’ll just have a nap…

7 Deadly Rays of Light…

Inspired by my last post with a skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins I thought I’d choose another and play around with that. A more pale version seemed to fit nicely with the ethereal Astralia Sim. I love love LOVED this sim and can’t wait to go back and explore more. Perhaps with some different 7DS skins?

♪And when October goes♪

By – PunKnPrettYsl. Visit ♪And when October goes♪ for original post.

♪The same old dream appears…♪

Okay… so Barry Manilow isn’t really my choice in music either. But Autumn is undeniably my favourite time of year and it is nearly here! Leaves are starting to change ever so slightly and soon everything will be blanketed in a cacophony of bright, changing colours. 
Outdoor walks, hot cider, pumpkins and everything that comes with this change of season are all things I adore. So I took a walk in SL through a little Autumn wonderland I found called Romantic Moods: Snuggles Forest. I sat down by the pond on a lovely swing at first.


While daydreaming and swinging the day away some ducks and geese caught my attention…


Well, the day was bright and lovely so I decided to get a closer look. Did I mention I ♥♥♥ Autumn?

Dark Savage of the Apocalypse

By – PunKnPrettYsl. Visit Dark Savage of the Apocalypse for original post.

There came a day when all was destroyed. The world burned around her and she would rule the burnt wasteland of the world left behind…

With Darkness in heart and fire in her soul she alone would thrive in the desolation of the aftermath of destruction. In fact, she was destruction…

Okay.. I had A LOT of fun with this one, I gotta admit. Playing around on The Junkyard: Post-Apocalypse  in my Dark Passions clothing, posing ontop of burning vehicles while RP-ers seriously RP’d around me was a bit hilarious… Ah well, like the tattoo says: We’re All Mad Here!

♪Just a City Girl♪

Took the midnight train going anywhere… 

And wound up in this LOVELY small town sim Hive Honeycomb in my favourite season of Autumn! Horses, pumpkins and falling leaves, oh my! 

**(I should add the floating leaves are mine if you join the Hive group you can rez there and I used the IOS Foating Leaves Fatpack in brown, gold, blue and maroon available for the moment at Color Me Project, but the sim is still amazingly beautiful boasting lots of its own fall foliage!)

After taking a few minutes to just enjoy the surroundings and take in all the sights, scents and sounds of the season, it was time to play!

Which, of course, tired me out and I decided on a little nap in the leaves. Just hope the horse doesn’t confuse my hair for grass while I lay here…

She Did Not Fear the Dark

By – PunKnPrettYsl. Visit She Did Not Fear the Dark for original post.

As she strolled through the streets of St Pete City, knowing she looked like easy prey, she worked to keep the smile off her lips. Her smooth skin, long hair and youthful look would work to her advantage, though they of course, wouldn’t know that. She hoped. She even attempted to look alarmed at her dark surroundings.

 She waited, knowing she looked the helpless girl, for someone to make that deadly mistake… To her dismay, none came near her. Seeing some down the end of the alley she realized by now the folk had probably been warned. 


 Looks like it was time to move on to another city and start over. She did not fear the dark, no.. Here, it seemed, the dark had learned to fear her.
