His

It seems strange to a lot of people that we log into this virtual world and develop such close, intimate relationships with people we may never meet face to face in the real world. I know that people joke about those that are with a new partner every other week or month. While others seem to survive the test of time and last for years. Some couples even move to real life and find what they hope to be true love. While there are others who do not even entertain the thought of dating, romance, or sex in a virtual world.
I’m not going to attack anyone’s romantic habits or lack thereof. One of the beautiful things about SL is that we truly can live and let live if we so choose. What works for some will most definitely not work for another. That’s life, period, regardless of realm.
I believe there are some people who are addicted to the falling or the chase. That euphoric feeling of falling in love, but once the falling is over and the dust settles they begin to grow restless, perhaps even bored.  Perhaps they’re just moving too quickly and are too eager to claim their territory in fear of losing it?
I know of many SL only couples that have been together for many years, never crossing the lines or boundaries of a real life face to face introduction
I think there are some that are open and honest with each other. They have real life limitations, thus their relationship can only evolve so far with respect to said limitations. It’s all different strokes, isn’t it?
I know of some couples that have moved their relationship from SL to RL. And we can only hope that their love is truly eternal and that they can stand the test of time and RL challenges.
For me, I have no desire for another RL relationship as I’m on a very slow journey towards a divorce. Its an amicable situation for now. I’ve only had a handful of SL relationships over the years, for most of the my 10+ years on the grid I have not dated. Its only been in recent years that I began to enjoy the romantic side of SL again. Since, 2013 and this will include a ten month break from SL, I’ve been in five SL relationships…Josh being the 5th. Josh and I have no plans to move our relationship to RL, as we live in different countries and have responsibilities that simply wouldn’t permit either of us to move in that direction. I am quite blessed to have found someone willing to deal with my RL situation without making demands that I cannot meet. I cannot know how long we will last. We’re fully aware that we are not likely a forever more couple or that we shall live in a happily ever after virtual world. What we know is that we’ve found something special in each other that we’ve not found anywhere else. What we know is that we have true feelings and desires for one another and for now…I am His.

I certainly understand those that choose not to pursue romance in SL, I recently declared I would never do it again as it hurts so terribly much. Yet, here I am, doing it again. Color me a hypocrite if you like or remember that I am a woman and I do what I want! That means I can change my mind faster than I can change my mood! HA! Whatever your romantic status, goals or desires on the grid may be…I hope that shopping is one of your passions as it is surely one of mine.
On that note, Uber recently opened, along with lots of other events going on already,  and as usual they’ve delivered up an array of gorgeous designs from creators all across the grid. Pictured is the latest from Dead Dollz, the Scarlett Bodysuit, which comes with a hud to change the color of the ribbon belt. Kunst is always on point with intricate jewelry designs and I’ve been a fan of theirs for a very long time. Without fail, Kunst has delivered a gorgeous unisex Devon bracelet with a color hud that allows you to personalize it and color coordinate.
With all of the events going on at any given time, there’s just no reason for a lack of retail therapy and I for one find it ever so fulfilling to put together my newest finds with classic favorites. So, live and let live, love and let love, and shop for the love of all things pretty…go shopping! *giggles*

Feeling Like a Rockstar!

Most days I don’t have a great deal of confidence in myself and I’m probably harder on myself than anyone other than my parents ever has been. However, once in a while I have a day where I feel super productive and actually take some pride in myself. Today is one of those days. I’m feeling really good despite my elevated pain levels, I was super productive in RL today. I got lots of errands done, got my taxes filed, and managed to get home in time to work on some blog posts!
I realize that’s not a huge deal to some, but when leaving your house is one of your most dreaded deeds..well, its not only a big deal to do it, but to do it without anxiety? Yes! I am feeling like a rock star, because I did just that. I marched my little ass…okay, my big ass…right out the door and got my errands done. Multiple stores and I saved a ton of money even though I spent too much. I even managed to fix my glasses with a little super glue after they got knocked off the bed by the dog and stepped on by my mom! So, yeah, I’m totally rocking this Monday!

Light as a Feather

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
Emily Dickinson

Hope is something I could not live without. I’ve had a really bad day from beginning to end. Actually it pretty much started right before I went to bed last night, but it is what it is. It is that hope that keeps me going as I hope for a better tomorrow. Its just a bad day, right? We all have them…just one of those days where everything goes wrong, but the day is coming to a close thank goodness and I’m holding tight to that hope right now.

Meanwhile, some awesome things are happening across the grid. E.A. Studio has released a new necklace called Feather Dior with a pretty badass hud, that just makes it a perfect match for the Icarus ears that at an exclusive at Tres Chic. Meanwhile, Gingerfish poses finally has an inworld store and it just so happens to be on the TaKe Heart sim which has thawed early and is brilliant with colorful flowers and more. Make sure you check out all of this and more, as the Grid melts and more and more sims slip out of the winter theme and into whatever season the landscapers decide. *winks*

Angel…uhm, ok

So, today I’m taking you on a new kind of journey. How I went from the idea for the photo to the blog post. Brace yourselves, this is going to be a weird ride.
Let’s start with the pose. The ad for the pose shows a girl being lifted away by a bunch of balloons (which by the way come with the pose), but knowing most people would use the pose as is, I wanted to do something different. Immediately I thought of catching an angel. I thought about a guy who maybe dreamed of an angel and didn’t want to let her go or maybe he was visited by one and tried to catch her before she got away. Ok, so I get the minimal scene all set up. I take the pictures from various angles. I edit them. I load them to the blog and wait for some sort of inspiration to come, so that I can write something really creative and poetic. And I wait. Days pass and nothing good comes to mind.

my-angel2

This morning I woke up to discover I started my period, yes, boys…we bleed. Get over it. So, I’m looking at this picture and all I can think about is this conversation I had years ago with the sister of one of my guy friends. Somehow we got to talking about about how red bull gives you wings and so do pads (sanitary napkins or whatever you call them in your corner of the globe). I remember we could not stop laughing and created one bad tag line after another and that we thoroughly grossed out her brother, to the point that he left the room with us still going. Sadly, this conversation was over ten years ago and beyond what I’ve just told you, I cannot give you any other details. Therefore rendering that story pointless. (Didn’t stop me tho, did it?)

my-angel3

So, I take to YouTube, where I often find inspiration, right? First thing I see is Shaggy’s Angel. Nope. While I do love the song, I’m not fond of this particular version. Okay, well there’s Sarah McLachlan’s Angel, but I’m not selling memberships to the ASPCA or homeless pets…so…nah. Oh how I love that song, though. If not for those damn commercials, that almost could have worked. DRATS! Oooh, look, next on the list is Aerosmith’s Angel. Well, I do love Aerosmith! That might have worked if Josh was writing up some gushy blog about me. What else we got? Well, next on my list was Halestorm’s  I’m Not An Angel, but I am…lookit…wings..check…halo…check…angelic face…check…(Shut your dirty whore mouth, Tracy!)…ok, so we’ll just pretend Josh wrote the post from Aerosmith’s inspiration and I’m his angel, yeah!

my-angel4

Okay, so you know this all started over the pose. You can head over to Cosmopolitan and scoops yours up to create you own Go With the Wind photos. By now, I’m sure everyone has seen the Angelberry set and the gorgeous hairs from Truth at The Epiphany, if not, grab the LMs below and go play those gachas! For you bento lovers out there, just so you know…the wings? They’re bento!
Happy shopping, sweet dreams, and may all your lives be graced by some sort of angel…*winks*…even fallen ones like Grace and Tracy…*nods*

You Don’t See Me

Threw you the obvious and you flew with it on your back a name
In your recollection down among a million same
Difficult not to feel
a little bit disappointed and passed over
when I’ve looked right through to see you
naked but oblivious
and you don’t see me
But I threw you the obvious just to see
If there’s more behind the eyes of a fallen angel
eyes of a tragedy
Here I am expecting just a little bit too much
From the wounded but I see through it all and see you
‘Cause I threw you the obvious to see what occurs behind the
eyes of a fallen angel
Eyes of a tragedy
oh well, oh well apparently nothing
apparently nothing at all
You don’t, you don’t, you don’t see me
You don’t, you don’t, you don’t see me
You don’t, you don’t, you don’t see me
You don’t, you don’t, you don’t see me
You don’t see me
You don’t see me at all
Perfect Circle 3 Libras
I don’t make it a habit of listing entire lyrics, but these are rather short and sweet and really express something that’s been pretty heavy on my mind recently. People play these little games with each other…testing friends to find out how well we can trust each other…testing potential lovers for reactions. While we’re sitting there with our expectations, they might very well be sitting there trying to please us not realizing that we’re testing them at all, nor are they being honest with their response…so we walk away from each other wondering what happened. How did it all go so wrong?
Or worse we go out of our way to make it pretty damn clear where we stand. We reveal layers of ourselves to another and they’re as oblivious as can be to what’s happening right in front of them. We figure direct doesn’t work, so we drop hints…they still don’t get it. Its as if they don’t see us at all. They see something they’ve created in their own mind and have not figured out anything about who we are…absolutely clueless. And we are at a loss…

lybra2

Yes, once in a while I go dark…very dark, but look at the gruesome inspiration I have found to tap into that darkness. While perhaps not cocktail attire for Frank’s, this delicious dark gown from Lybra with matching mask, begs for my dark side to step forth. To let my inner demons crawl forth and dance on the gallows.

Not So Apocalyptic

So, Grace and I had our eyes on this outfit early on. We waited and waited, finally we pounced! While standing on my platform putting my outfit together, it occurs to me that we should do some pictures together. As I’m strapping on bullets and guns, I’m thinking Wastelands! Apocalypse! Cuz we’re super cute little badasses, right? So, off I go, I send for her and wouldn’t you know it…she’s cute as a button, blind as a bat! Completely useless in an apocalypse! Well, unless she develops sonar hearing or something. *giggles*
apocolyptic3

Anyway, exploring happened and then we set out to pose all pretty for the pictures. Yet, even though I was the one with sight, I managed to kick her in the face AND knock her silly with the end of my gun. *giggles* I think its safe to say we LOOK like little badasses, but we’re gonna need some help when the end comes. Odds are we’ll just be cute little drunks waiting on some strong heroes to come along and rescue us. HA! Yeah, we’ll be on the roof…look outs, yeah….something like that, because as it turns out we’re not so apocalyptic, afterall.
apocolyptic2
While we wait to be rescued…or for some to bring more booze, we’ll be looking out for the deals, because there’s always an event of some sort going on. You can sure bet that Grace and I will be all over that! In the meantime, you should head on over to Shiny Shabby and grab up these kickass little outfits by E-Clipse Design, sold in individual pieces, so feel free to mix and match!

Ink, Lust, & Accessories

When I did my recent post, Pleasant Surprises, I had mentioned that I would show off the bracelet much better in a later post. Well, I really wasn’t sure how I was going to do that, to be honest, as I’ve not focused on a bracelet in a photo before. However, like all great ideas come to me (stop laughing, I have a few)…I was out shopping and was instantly inspired by this pose by Glamrus. To top it off, Josh loved the bracelet, too. Well, how better to show off such a versatile piece than showcasing the bracelet and little else? *grins*
I thought it fitting, too, that Josh be in the photo since he’s also been part of my recent pleasant surprises. So, here we are showing off our ink, our lust, and our accessories. *grins like a loon*

*blushes* Sooooo, the bracelet and his tattoo are both available at the latest round of Men Only Monthly (pfft, men only my butt…lol…wait, that sounds…oh nvm) and you can head on over to Romp for the pose…AND my ears are an exclusive at TresChic…so don’t wait too long for those. Time’s a ticking! So, keeping it short and sweet, like this hair I grabbed during FLF on the 13th…told ya its a good day for me. *winks*

Bish vs Bitch

When I first came to Second Life in November of 2006, I was introduced to the word “bish.” I didn’t hear a lot of people saying it then, it was mostly my best friend and myself, because I thought it was super cute and quickly adopted it. We were best bishes and we’re still friends today, even though she no longer comes to SL. Over the years the word has gained popularity, especially in SL. Naturally like an overplayed song, I quickly tired of the term. Plus anyone that knows me knows that I like curse words…actual curse words, but I realize there’s a time and a place for everything. Bish is a softer term that essentially means the same thing, so just call me a bitch or something else…LOL.

bish1

 

With that said, the people behind BishBox couldn’t very well call it BitchBox, now could they? And here I am featuring some of goodies from the January BishBox, but what I really want to focus on here is this Gemma dress from ChicModa. My photos cannot begin to do it justice, because there’s a moving glimmer happening when I wear this dress that just has me screaming OOOOH SHINY waayyy too much! I couldn’t help but use this no cussing set from Industry7 for the background for a post about bish vs bitch, now could I?
Well, the deets are below…I encourage you to visit the events and the main stores, because believe it or not stores have main store releases more often that you think. As always, happy shopping!♥

Get It

This is not a normal post for me, because I just keep hearing this one song whenever I look at these pictures…so today you get lyrics and the link to the song. Of course, I’ll provide the deets, but c’mon…I think the lyrics and the music say it far better than I can. I prefer not to create blog posts that auto play music, so its your choice to click the link and listen along as you read the words and look at the pics…or just skip to the deets…or just close the box, cuz ewwww sexy girl! YUCK….*eyes Corban &  giggles*

Tei Shi “Get It

Oh   Oh   Oh   Oh
Baby when you hold me
It’s a feeling I can only fight
And know I should (know I should)
And you know that you stole me
When you looked at me and told me
It was understood

And you know that you’ve won
And I know you’ll come
Come get it, get it, get it
Get it, get it, get it
Get it, get it, get it
Get it, get it, get it

Baby I know that you’ll come and get it
When you’re good and ready (good and ready)
I know that you’ll come and get it
When you find you’re good and ready

Baby I can smell it all around you
Can’t you tell it lingers in the air?
And I know that you felt it
When the ice around me melted
Then you pulled my hair
(pulled my hair, pulled my hair)
And I knew it was love
I fit you like a glove

Come get it, get it, get it
Get it, get it, get it
Get it, get it, get it
Get it, get it, get it
Baby I know that you’ll come and get it
When you’re good and ready
Good and ready

I know that you’ll come and get it
When you find you’re good and ready
I know that you’ll come and get it
When you find you’re good and ready
