Dream

“Dream on
Dream until your dreams come true” ~Aerosmith Dream On

This line, from one of my all time favorite songs really hit home this morning when I woke from dreaming about friends from Second Life. This isn’t all that abnormal, I’ve often dreamed about my friends from this virtual land, but last night’s dream was quite surreal and I woke up thinking how easily that dream could be made into a virtual reality. Yes, another post about why I love Second Life, because here we can do and be just about anything we want…even lost in a daydream. Don’t ever allow yourself to be bored in Second Life, go make a dream come true. ❤

Summer Colds Suck

“How are you feeling?” they all ask.

I want to tell them that I feel like road kill or that it feels like death just took a shit on my head. I want to be dramatic and cry out, “I’M DYING!” Okay, maybe I did say those things to a few of my closest friends, but c’mon let’s face it….SUMMER COLDS SUCK! I can deal with a lot things, but summer colds are the absolute worst. Of course, that’s because that’s what I’m suffering from right now. Naturally, I found a way to milk my miserable status by showing you just how sick I am. Even my avatar is sick…SEE?

Controversy

A strong spirit transcends rules. ~Prince

How true it is…I just wrote yesterday about “differentness” and how I struggled to find my place in the world after we quit moving. Prince played such a huge role in my road of self discovery. I’ll share one quick story and then get on with the picture and credits, because I’m just very sad today. We lost such an amazing talent and truly magnificent spirit.

In the 8th grade (shut it about my age), a group of us would all meet in the band room to listen to Prince’s Controversy album, because none of our parents would let us listen to it at home. That album means more to me than most people would imagine. R.I.P. Prince and thank you for sharing yourself with the world. ❤

Differentness

“I didn’t belong as a kid, and that always bothered me. If only I’d known that one day my differentness would be an asset, then my early life would have been much easier.”
Bette Midler

My father was a soldier in the U.S. Army. While very young (2-10yrs old), we moved a lot. Each time we did, I would reinvent myself…hoping that I would fit in. Sometimes it worked. Sometimes it didn’t. Eventually we quit moving and I was lost. I didn’t know how to continue being just one person. I longed to reinvent myself again and again. The only way I could do that was with fashion and for many years, I was considered quite odd as I might dress punk, but hang out with preps….it only got weirder when I began mixing different styles into my own little mad creations. I think this is one of the biggest reasons that I love Second Life and have become such an intense shopaholic in a virtual world. Fashion. I can be preppy today and hardcore Goth the next or better yet? Mix them up! Its fantastic fun…at least for me…and since you’re reading a blog about SL fashion, I’m going to guess you agree. *winks* (BTW, more events going on than I can shake a stick at, so there’s more reasons than ever to SHOP TIL YOU DROP)

A Butterfly

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

I cannot think of a single thing to say that could elaborate on this quote. It is simple and direct. This quote serves as a reminder to be patient and keep your eyes open. That elusive butterfly will eventually land upon you and when it does..it can be truly marvelous.

In the meantime….let there be shopping!

Good Girl

“I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing, but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.”
Anaïs Nin

I’m by no means about to blog about bdsm or the D/s lifestyle. Believe it or not, even I have some limits, but I will say that from the right man…those two words, “good girl”
…well, they make parts of me melt and on that note, take a gander of some of the deliciously naughty goodies on display…NOT ME, you pervs…*winks*

Spirit of Wine

O thou invisible spirit of wine, if thou hast no name to be known by, let us call thee devil. William Shakespeare

Those that know me well, know that Tequila is my drink of choice, but on occasion I do enjoy a nice glass of wine. I’ve been exploring red wines quite a bit recently and have discovered I’m not a fan of California Reds, but I’ve taken quite a liking to Italian Reds. On that lovely grape flavored note…I enjoyed a virtual glass while posing about on BellePoses’  Nic Bath Sofa which I snagged while shopping The 100 Block yesterday morning. Perhaps I had more wine than I should have…as you can see, by the time I was done…well, I needed a nap.
