Christmas Collab with Chickadee

I’ve been wanting to do more collaborations with other bloggers for ages. As a blog manager, I have access to dozens of truly talented bloggers that represent similar if not the same brands as myself. When United Colors released his last two gowns, Chickadee and I knew instantly that this was our collaboration waiting to happen. I just so happened to have a party scene already set up from a previous post (you’ll find the link for that in the details below the photo), so we just needed a few friends for a the background. We were fortunate that Ty and Dusty were will to step in to model for us rather last minute.  Tis the season for all sorts of parties from casual to formal. Don’t struggle too hard on the formal, because UC has truly outdone himself with the details and the fit on these two gowns. Click here for Chickadee’s post   and see her view on our little gathering.
Happy Holidays to all and more importantly…Happy shopping!♥

Roses in the Snow

Believe it or not, this post springs from the Challenge to Challenge. Lizzy Plantagenet gave me a rosebush and snow. For this challenge, I kinda cheated, but it IS my blog afterall…lol. Seriously though, this reminded me of a song that I hadn’t thought about in ages. It’s one of those haunting songs that stays with you long after you listen to it.

Nico – Roses in the Snow

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently, you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
And you know that it was like this before we had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
Until you feel this way

With every moon
It is as though you’re getting closer to your soul
And then you go alone, and with no fear
Then you will know that it was like this before he had to go
And you will find that you were blind
Until you saw these lights
Glowing in your nights

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
But you know it was like this before he had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
If you don’t know
And there are roses growing in the snow

Blanket and Magnet

It’a another Challenge to Challenge post!! First off, I have to fangirl just a bit. Exis actually gave me this challenge and I’m a huge fan of her work. If you’re not familiar with her, you must check her out! So, she gave me blanket and magnet, which worked out perfectly for this post, because of the dogs. Let the short story unfold…

She didn’t have children in the traditonal sense, but she had two beautiful female huskies that she referred to as her dogters. Blanket and Magnet were named for their behavior, as Blanket had dragged around some type of covering since she was brought home. She had quickly discovered how to cover herself with it, too. Magnet followed Blanket every where and always had to be touching Blanket or the blanket she used to cover herself. This was to be their first Christmas as adult dogs and though Sady was quite sure that her furry children had no understanding of the holiday, she wanted it to be special for them. Each day they received a special little treat from the advent calendar and each day she added more to their Christmas scene. Magnet had gotten tangled up in the lights, but didn’t want them removed. For now, Sady would allow it. She drank her hot cocoa as she reflected on the past year and everything that had happened. She looked lovingly at her girls and found gratitude that there were at least two creatures in her life that had yet to betray her.

Suicide Test

My real life is a freaking mess and certainly not what I had hoped it would be by my age. However, if I don’t give thanks for the little things, I simply wouldn’t be able to pull myself from the edge of suicide. It sounds severe and dramatic, but I assure you that its something I think about regularly. AND from the age of 12 until I was 22, I was attempted it regularly. Clearly, I failed at that like so many things in my life. It was my last attempt that changed everything. I was lying in the ICU, barely conscious when I had an epiphany for what I now call my Suicide Test. I have yet to pass this test, therefore, I have not been able to attempt suicide again since.
It’s quite simple actually. It’s a 30 day test, so patience is key, but if you’re planning to die, what’s 30 more days, yeah? So, look at the clock. For me, its 9:19pm on Sept 19. Now, if I do not find a single moment of joy between now and 9:19pm on Oct 19th, I can proced with my suicide attempt. However, you have to understand the true nature of joy and what all that entails. That means you must want to die for every second of ever minute of every hour of every day for 30 days straight. That means you cannot enjoy a single moment of your life for even a second or the clock starts over. So, if a meme makes you laugh or even smile or silently chuckle. Clock restarts. You tasted something wonderful and thought to yourself how good that was? Clock restarts. You stepped in the shower and exhaled with relief as that hot water poured over you. Clock restarts.
You see, if you had killed yourself upon that first notion, you would have missed that simple moment of joy. If you would have missed something as simple as a cluster of butterflies dancing over your head, then you surely would have missed the smile you bring to other people’s faces. And let’s face it, no matter how awful you think your life is…you make someone smile and someone loves you.

Cold as November

“Oh I say you’re as cold as November
You left when I was crying
And I was crying every time you left
Oh but ain’t it kind of funny how you weren’t laughing when I left
So who’s the real king of pain?”
~ Devil Doll – Queen of Pain

I had to have some fun with this look. I just love the fun, versatility of this dress. Accessories and shoes will determine how it is interpreted. Standing in the abandoned warehouse backdrop…well, I had to do something a little twisted. Afterall, these poses were named after me.

This photo is really special to me, because it brings some of my favorite people together in a way that only happens in SL The poses were made just for the dress and this dress is magnificent. It may not move like flexi did back in the day, but I promise you will want to spin on the stars when you put it on. Go to Salem before the end of the month. There’s genuinely something for everyone unless you’re a miserable….erhm…I mean…yeah, go shopping…more importantly? Live.

I Can’t Believe You

“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

This is definitely one of my favorite quotes. I think more often than not, people tend to use it with significant others. However, let’s be fair, how many friends have you caught in a lie? I have major trust issues, but one of those issues is that I tend to be too trusting of certain people. Yet, eventually we have no choice but to open our eyes and face the truth. Some people are not real friends. They lie to us, they seriously insult us, and by doing both, they can seriously hurt us.
This is where I’m left asking myself a hoard of questions. Should I love that person unconditionally despite the toxicity of their attitude towards me? Should I try to understand where they are coming from, attempt to be the bigger person, and forgive them since they seem to be so clueless about what they are doing? Should I call them on their lies? Should I confront them about how deeply they’ve hurt me? Or do I walk away? Do I cut them from my life completely or just reduce our interactions?

this is what it feels like

On the Hunt

I could not have chosen a better song or written better words to go with this photo. I also doubt that many of my readers have heard it. So, please enjoy. ♥

Neo Noir & Krigare’ – On the Hunt

As the stars at night are falling
Like the torches in the dark
Marching with conviction
On the move and on the mark
Hear the howls in the distance
Chased the wolves they tried to run
Ooooh on the hunt

Finger on the trigger
Taste the fear that’s in the air
Silence breeds the tension
Haunted unaware
Chasing down the demons
Hear the beating of a drum
Ooooh on the hunt
Ooooh on the hunt

The past is left in ruins
Feel the pain and see the scars
The path of burning bridges
Feel the stone of a broken heart
Insatiable desire and it’s only just begun
Ooooh on the hunt
Ooooh on the hunt
