For The Love of The Devil

By now you’ve surely heard about the event, For the Love of the Devil. If not, please allow me to enlighten you with the except from the Facebook Page. I have dedicated this post to the event and my gorgeous, loving, inspiring friend, Andrea “Devil” Damone. Please take a look as the event is only a week long and there are some amazing creators that have stepped up. This is the first of three posts I’m dedicating to the event, so have a look below and grab the slurl. ♥

This year, in May and June a friend of many in Secondlife, Andrea Damone (Devil Damone) went in for what should have been a very routine surgery. But things did not go to plan, and Andrea spent many weeks in an induced coma fighting for her life.

We are blessed that she has fought her way back and although her recovery continues, she is home and getting stronger by the week. Unfortunately the cost of keeping Andrea with us has fallen on her greatly. She has many expenses and bills resulting from this ordeal that she has to now face, while continuing to maintain her determination and fighting spirit through physical and emotional therapy.

Andrea had no idea of our plans, but many of her friends have wanted to do something to help. It’s hard in Secondlife to offer support, when often we are so far away from a friendly hug, or a knock on the door with offerings of support. We decided, what we can do is try to help her with the burden of these expenses the only way we can.

For the love of the Devil‘ which we found fitting as her Secondlife name is Devil

Coffee and Tunes

There’s just something about coffee and music that go together. Obviously, I’m not the only one that thinks so. Otherwise, live musicians would play at little local coffee shops around the world. Even Starbucks sells CDs these days. For me, the best coffee music are light tunes. Melodic music with nice relaxing feel. Mostly folk music if I’m honest, occasionally jazz. Its a great way to start the day or even restart a day that’s gone awry.

Dear Bloggers

So, about a month or two ago, I got rejected when I applied to blog for a store I love. I jokingly made this dramatic post about feeling rejected. It turned into this huge thing, suddenly there was this outpouring of love and support from my friends and even some people I hardly knew at all.  Now we all just dealt with the Blueberry blogger apps. I don’t think its a secret that I wanted that one equally as much. Guess what? I didn’t get it.  I’m not upset or even sad. Sure, I’m a little disappointed, but its not a big deal. I tried. It didn’t happen. I’m super thrilled for all my friends that did get it, but I certainly did not take the rejection personally. Nor do I take most rejections personally and I’ve had more than my fair share.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting. In just one day I’ve seen bloggers all excited that they got chosen and others ready to throw in the towel and quit blogging because they didn’t get what they want. Some are feeling not good enough. Some are feeling like they should have gotten it and don’t understand why they didn’t. Some are throwing full on fits all over Facebook. Let me just say this to those of you throwing tantrums. Do you think that makes you look good? As a blogger manager, I see you throw tantrums like that and think to myself, “Ugh, that’s not someone I want to work with.” Listen, my best friend is a blogger manager for a store I wanted to blog for and I didn’t even get that! So, seriously just stop it. No one is stopping you from blogging the items from  your favorite stores. Whether you were good enough or not, you’ve got to put on your big girl panties and grow up. Why did you start blogging in the first place? If it was to get free stuff, well, you’re doing it for the wrong reasons and believe me…people can tell if you’re heart’s not in it. As a blogger manager, I recently had to let one of my friends go off a blogging team, because she wasn’t keeping up. I’ve had to send warnings to friends. I’ve received warnings from friends. This is the life of a blogger. You need thick skin, a creative soul, and a blogger’s heart. If you truly have a blogger’s heart, you won’t be able to stop and a rejection isn’t going to slow you down one bit. So, suck it up buttercups…a rejection is nuffin, muffin….you wanna blog? Do it!  Wanna blog a certain store, but can’t afford fatpacks, then try demos, get an idea, then buy the color you want and blog it anyway! Sheesh. Trust this, I will still blog Blueberry and the other store I didn’t get. You know why? Cuz I love their designs and I’m more than willing to buy them!

Behind Your Back

People will always talk behind your back, whether they know you or not. They will say things about you that aren’t true and someone will believe them. Guess what? Nothing you can do about it. I recently watched a friend of mine be falsely accused of something and boldly punished by peers. I’ve been through it, myself. I bet you have, too. Here’s the thing…the people that really know you and love you? They will believe you and even if you had done what you were accused of…well, they’d most likely stand by you. I mean, let’s be honest here, when someone runs off at the mouth behind our backs…what are they even saying? Whether lies or truths, its usually an opinion or something someone supposedly said to someone else, right? Or maybe they’re saying you did something that you’d never do in a gazillion years…so we’re back to the real friends, aren’t we? Those friends that know us well enough and love us strong enough to know better, to care less about the rumors.
I say let them talk….and while we’re at it, I’ll dress it up real pretty so you got something to look at since you can’t say it to my face. *smiles*

Witches’ Song

Alcohol has weakened my mind…I can’t think straight, so you get a song today, but its a beautiful song and I’m not sure how well its known…so maybe give it a listen.♥

Marianne Faithfull Witches’ Song

Shall I see you tonight, sister, bathed in magic greet?
Shall we meet on the hilltop where the two roads meet?
We will form the circle, hold our hands and chant
Let the great one know what it is we want
Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward
Sister, we are waiting on the rock and chain
Fly fast through the airwaves, meet with pride and truth
Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward
Father, we are waiting for you to appear
Do you feel the panic, can you see the fear?
Mother, we are waiting for you to give consent
If there’s to be a marriage, we need contempt
Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward

A Better Day

Once upon a time there was a girl that saw nothing but drama on Facebook all day long. She hated seeing people she cared about at each other’s throats and desperately wanted everyone to get along. She watched insults being flung about carelessly and it made her sad. She knew she was powerless against all the hate and anger. She knew that getting involved or tossing in her two cents would only make things worse. Instead, she decided to close the window and spend more time with herself. She’s never understand why people who clearly didn’t like one another would spend so much time and energy spreading hate. She had enough problems and much bigger ones than picking people apart. She was much happier in her little blogger bubble, decorating and playing dress up. She remembered why she had begun to isolate herself and sighed gratefully for the close friends that she had. As she went to bed that night, she burned her sage wand to rid herself of the day’s negativity and sending love out into the world, hoping that today would be a better day not just for her, but for everyone.

Not So Enchanted

aziza

While this post is showcasing items from the latest round of Enchantment, my life atm is anything but enchanted. Its only Tuesday and this is a crazy week. Far too much adulting going on for me! Mom is out of town until Saturday. The husband is sick as a dog, but refuses to stay home from work and rest. I have a repair guy scheduled to come out and fix our oven on Thursday, so no baking this week. I know! No pizza!!! *cries* Oh but to top all of this off, my bathtub faucet has decided to quit on me so precious water is being wasted! So, yesterday morning after wrestling with our budget to see if we could afford it, I called the plumber. He came out last night, gave me an estimate that was better than I expected, and promised to come back today. That means I gotta put on a bra AND pants two days in a row!?!?! WTF!!! Oh and that’s just the RL stuff!
Its the end of the month, so I need to have my derriere in SL these last few days as I’m one of the Liaisons for FaMESHed. Those that have worked behind the scenes at an event know how stressful it can be during set up. I’m fortunate to work with an amazing team and Elvi, the FaMESHed Queen, is also a bit (holds her hands way far apart) OCD, so its quite organized. Aside from that, I’m making sure I met all my blogging requirements for the month, filing those reports and following up with bloggers that I manage.

Real quick I want to touch on the items in the photo, most of the stuff you see is at Enchantment, but I believe that’s shutting down on the 31st, so you’ll either want to hurry over or wait for stuff to find its way to the mainstore. However, this round was certainly one of my favorites so I had to show off some of the goodies and luckily for me, my dear friend, Tracy Redangel, just did a mainstore release of Groove Baby poses. This one just fit perfectly in my opinion. So, happy shopping, and send hair, because I’m pretty sure I’ll be bald by Saturday, if not the end of the day.

ThereAfter

I’ve had the great honor and privilege of being involved behind the scenes with ThereAfter: A Post Apocalyptic Affair. Naturally, I love the theme of the event, but this event is unlike any other I’ve seen. This is not only a themed shopping event. Everyday there are additional activities going on Fashion Theater, DJs, and Live singers! The scenery alone is worth a visit and you will definitely find some incredible must have quality designs. I’m featuring just a few things here, but this is a must see event! I’m not going to waste your time chatting on and on about it. I want you take a look at the scene I’ve created using just a few of the amazing items you’ll find there, then go check it out for yourself. You can be sure, you’ll be seeing a lot more of this event from me, as well. Happy Apocalypse!!♥

You Lookin’ At Me Lookin’ At You

I took a step away from writing about myself and have been writing more fictional tidbits and short short stories to accompany my photos. I have to admit it has been a lot of fun. However, there will be times like now, that a song just fits how I feel about the picture more than anything else. Today is one of those days. So, I’ll give you the YouTube link and the lyrics. Its up to you where to go from here. Either way, I wish you love & laughter, seems we could all use some of that, right?

Ozzy Osbourne You Lookin’ At Me Lookin’ At You

Pictures building in my head
Nothing done and nothing said
Talking to me with your eyes
What they say is no surprise
Things are so much different now
But nothing lasts forever

You, looking at me, looking at you
I wanna talk to you
You, looking at me, looking at you

Carry on from day to day
Even when we touch it seems miles away
I know you know I know too
Is it me or is it you?
Things are so much different now
But nothing lasts forever

I had a dream that we were through
I can’t imagine nights without you, yeah
Looks and fixes can we repair
Talking good and we just stare
Waste of love is waste of life
Save our love from the final knife
Things would be so different then
Our love would last forever

well now
