She’s Like the Wind

Since the designer of this dress is a singer and the picture keeps planting an earworm in my head…I’m going to do the music things…YouTube link and lyrics provided, of course! For the funhaters, you can just scroll on down to the deets to go shopping! *giggles*

Patrick Swayze She’s Like the Wind

She’s like the wind,
Through my tree
She rides the night
Next to me

She leads me through moonlight
Only to burn me with the sun
She’s taken my heart
But she doesn’t know what she’s done

Feel her breath in my face
Her body close to me
Can’t look in her eyes
She’s out of my league

Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She’s like the wind

I look in the mirror
And all I see
Is a young old man
With only a dream
Am I just fooling myself
That she’ll stop the pain?
Living without her
I’d go insane!

I feel her breath in my face
Her body close to me
Can’t look in her eyes
She’s out of my league

Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She’s like the wind

I feel your breath in my face
Your body close to me
Can’t look in your eyes
You’re out of my league

Just a fool to believe (Just a fool to believe)
She’s like the wind….

Final Destination

Alright, so this story has absolutely nothing to do with the picture, but as I struggled with what to write about I was also looking for something to watch on Netflix. That’s when I remembered the first time I saw the movie Final Destination. Now for those of you that have not seen it, let me give you a brief little spoiler free description provided for us by IMDB: “After a teenager has a terrifying vision of him and his friends dying in a plane crash, he prevents the accident only to have Death hunt them down, one by one.”

So, the first time I saw this movie, I was living alone and I had gotten a copy of it from a friend. Okay, it was a bootleg copy and it was a very long time ago…so not the point of the story. Please don’t judge me too harshly. So, I popped it into my computer and turned off all the lights, because that’s the only proper way to watch a horror movie, right? Now I should probably point out something for those that haven’t seen it…when people die in this movie is it very bizarre circumstances…the kind of stuff that would be on that show Curious and Unusual Deaths. Okay, so its dark…I’ve watched the movie…I’m alone. The movie ends, I’ve jumped out of my skin more than I expected and its time to get ready for bed.
I’m not afraid of the dark, obviously. I know my way around my own 760sq ft one bedroom apartment. After all, I was a property manager for the apartment complex, I’ve shown this very apartment many times before. So, I get up and make my way to the hallway, forgetting that I had left the vacuum cleaner in the dining room, but plugged into an outlet in the living room. I tripped and crashed into a wall in the hall…I feel something graze my face and realize its a shelf I have on the wall, that looks like an open window. Holy shit, that could have put my eye out! Whew! That was weird. I make it around the corner to the bathroom, turn on the light…I’m not taking any chances after the hallway. So, I’m brushing my teeth when my black cat, Jasper, comes into the bathroom and starts doing circle eights between my feet. I lose my balance and almost impale myself with the toothbrush! WTF!?!?! That’s it, I’m going to bed!
I manage to change clothes without incident and I climb into bed. I notice the wind is blowing outside and I think to myself, “Oh a storm would be nice. I love sleeping to the sound of rain.” However, it was just a really windy night and my sliding glass window is rattling something fierce. Did I mention the window was directly over my bed? Yeah, so I’m thinking…the hallway…the toothbrush….oh hell no! I get up, I move my bed to the middle of the room. Away from anything that could fall off the wall and kill me. Now, I can relax, right? WRONG!
I’m laying in my bed, listening to the wind on the window, smiling to myself for being so smart and moving away from the window. Then I seem to have developed super sonic hearing, because I’m hearing the ceiling fan wobble with each rotation. Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick….oh god, that’s going to fall right onto me…its right over my bed! ACK! Nope, the bedroom is NOT safe! I grab my comforter and my pillow and head back to the living room…no worries, I was turning on all the lights all the way there. Slowly inching my way back as I turn them off again.
So, I’m all settled in on the couch against a blank wall. Nothing to trip me nearby (I put the vacuum away) and the path to the bathroom is clear. Got it. I can hear the wind on the living room window which is a safe distance away and I’m loving the peacefulness of it all. I’m finally going to relax and get some sleep. Suddenly, out of nowhere something heavy lands on my stomach…I scream…he hisses. Goddamnit, Jasper! Yeah, I didn’t sleep that night.

The Ugliest Thing I Could Find

So, the tie dye pattern on this Migle dress from United Colors reminded me of one of my favorite shirts when I was about 18. There’s actually a funny story about that shirt. My parents got divorced when I was 15, for the first year my mom cried almost every night. After that she went a little wild. She was going on trips quite regularly, but being the awesome mom that she was, she would always bring me a present. Being the mom with awful taste meant I wasn’t going to like it if it was clothing. Then lo and behold she returned from a trip with the most awesome looking black and white tie dyed shirt I had ever seen. It wasn’t even a tee shirt, it was like a wicked blouse! I was so shocked and happy. As I’m standing there hugging the shirt, then holding it up, then ripping off my current shirt to try it on, my mom is standing there laughing so hard she has tears running down her face. Naturally, I had to know what was so damn funny, right?
She wiped the tears from her face and asked if I really liked the shirt. I nodded profusely, “Yes! I love it, Momma! Thank you. I can’t believe you picked this out, though.”
She laughed again for a minute then said, “Well, you never like anything I pick out, so I just looked around the shop for the ugliest thing I could find. You’re welcome.”
Damn woman. We still have opposing taste in most things, but she’s gotten a lot better at picking out gifts over the years. *laughs* Even if she thinks they’re ugly.

I would love to list all the fantastic designers that will be there, but its just too much for my lil ole brain and my chubby lil fingers to type up. HOWEVER, I am going to give you a little tip about the hyperlinks below. You know how we bloggers like to link the slurl to the store name and event? Well, not only have I done that, but if you want this hair, you can click on the event link by the Mina Betty hair listed below and it will take you directly to Mina’s booth! All of the Vintage Fair links in this post will take you directly to the vendor of the item by which its listed! How cool is that?!?! Awww, you’re welcome! *grins* Also, as you will soon see, almost everything in the picture is from the Vintage Fair…well, all but three pieces of the decor and my basic avatar, of course. They have makeup but it wouldn’t do much good to try and showcase that from this distance. So have a looksy and then explore the two amazing sims full of keen items from the incredible designers that have participated.

Everything is Changing

“Everything is changing,
And I’ve been here for too long
Going through the same things
I’ve been hurting too long,
Got to move on
Say I-I-I-I can’t do this anymore
If everything is changing
And I know, yeah, you gotta let go”
Sigma ft Paloma Faith – Changing

Life is full of change. Every single day something impacts us to alter the course of our day, our life…every little thing that happens to us impacts us on some level. Sometimes it takes us a while to figure out what is working and what isn’t. From there, we make conscious decisions to change. This is life, right? Even when the changes swirl around us in a way that we feel we’ve lost all control, we still have the ground beneath our feet. If we crumple…if we fall…the ground is there to catch us. Its all just a matter of how far we fall and how hard, isn’t it?

Collabor88 has returned and delivered us with some “lazy & chill” themed items that are simply breathtaking. While a lot of people in SL don’t understand the concept of being comfortable in a virtual world, I do and I for one want nothing more than to be lazy & chill, in both my worlds. Its not always an options, but at least in SL..not only can I look lazy & chill, but I can look fierce while doing it. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been that cute girl next door that looks adorable in her chillaxing clothes…I tend to look more like a homeless person. *laughs* While that is the theme, there’s nothing stopping you from grabbing some amazing threads and shoes to create you own look that isn’t lazy & chill at all. As soon as I saw the Andrea Jumpsuit from CandyDoll, I knew I had to have it and the Dorothy boots from Phedora are a perfect match, as both allow color options for the bow. To help you blend your look into a more cohesive one. I’m wishing you all a happy month of shopping and watch here for tons more goodies coming you way from across the grid.  ♥

The Fantasy Girls

So, there are some pretty standard sexy stereotypes out there and I’m quite curious how they all got started. Don’t worry, I’ll break down my confusion for you one at a time. *laughs*
Given the photos I’m using for this post, we’ll start with the Sexy Librarian. I never understood this, because most of the librarians I encountered in my life have looked more like my grandmother. I have to wonder where this fantasy started, because I have yet to encounter a real life sexy librarian. Yes, I get it the whole, take off the glasses and let her hair cascade down over her shoulder in a L’Oreal commercial imagery, I just don’t get how it started.
Okay, lets take on the one that makes me completely shudder. The sexy nurse. This is where I make a blank face and stare through your soul. My mother is a retired registered nurse and she was a damn good one, but never in all my years did any of her uniforms and eventually scrubs look remotely sexy. Don’t get me wrong, my mother is beautiful, far prettier than me, but I really have to adjust my mindset in order to see a nurse as sexy.
Then there’s angels and demons. Which on one hand I totally get, but on the other hand I’m thinking…aren’t these supposed to be religious figures? And don’t get me started on the naughty nuns….sheesh. Talk about blasphemy…not that I’m bothered, I’m an athiest, but still.

chic-moda-and-on9-2

Then there are the sexy school girl and girl scout costumes. Once again, we’re going at this with two hands, but both are odd to me. On one hand, I wonder if perhaps this is residual from school days when the girls that wore these things were unobtainable? If so, shouldn’t you grow up and get over it by now? The my other hand…isn’t that all just a bit pedo? *shrugs*
Now to be a total hypocrite…since all of these things are deemed appropriate…I am more than happy to dress up as all of these things, so long as I can make them super super slutty, cuz otherwise…what’s the point? *laughs*

Toxic

As I live my life, I’ve encountered a lot of toxic people, some are more so than others. Every once in a while, I come across one that is so toxic they become a cancer. It is then that I must listen to my gut and my closest friends…to go under the figurative knife and cut out that cancer. Removing it completely from my life, regardless of how much it hurts at the moment or how hard the process may be, it is most definitely necessary.

toxic2

Much like cancer, sometimes those toxic people come back, and I have to fight those demons…work that process…borrow strength from friends and fight with all I have to stay strong. I cannot let myself be sucked back into that manipulative toxic environment. To lose myself into some bottomless pit of darkness, because if I do not cut those poisonous people from my life as quickly as possible…I risk everything. This is something I have to do again and again. Its not something I enjoy. It makes me feel horrible, because my heart goes out to the person behind the toxicity and deep down I don’t want to let go. I don’t want to believe that I have to cut them out of my life to stay healthy. Sadly, I have to face that truth. I have to break promises and THAT tears at my soul.

Thank Godde (play on words, some of you will catch that, some of you won’t) for retail therapy! I managed to shimmy my way into ULTRA during early access, grabbed up some amazing goodies and off I went to get my pictures. There are always a lot of incredible events going on, but ULTRA is a really, really good one. Not too big, not too small, but always on point with quality designers.
Check out these Icarus ears from E.A. Studio. How freaking cool are they? And the HUD? You can change the colors of the feathers, the metals, and there are options for the gauged part as well…you’ll have to go to Tres Chic for these, cuz they’re an exclusive!
And Cosmopolitan…you gotta be quick, but Codex is on the scene with the Betlam Necklace and it is gorgeous.
There’s nothing like some good old fashioned retail therapy to make me feel whole again. So, happy shopping to all of you and don’t you let those toxic people hold you back!♥
