Get Me Outta Here

October is traditionally my favorite month of the year. The beginning of the month (6th) is my birthday and all month long is pretty much Halloween. Which means there are skulls, spiders, and all sorts of ghoulish references all over the place in both worlds. While not everyone in the world celebrates Halloween and some people like my friend Ana “BossyAss” Crystal can’t wait for it to be over as she hates the color orange, I am in wicked sort of heaven! This year is no exception, there’s no shortage of all things goth, ghoulish, and dark, but for those that aren’t into the very U.S. American holiday….well, there’s plenty for you out there, too. I’ve combined the two below with a pair of gorgeous heels which are the result of two incredible designers collaborating, Phedora and Moda!
I’m using one of several backdrops you’ll discover at Prism Event’s annual Salem.

“Globophobia is the fear of balloons. In some cases, the fear is of balloons in general, while in others the object of fear is the sound produced when balloons pop (phonophobia).”  Phobia Wiki

Get Me Outta Here
She had seen the movie before, so when those red balloons started popping up in the library she quickly jumped on his back and screamed, “Get Me Outta Here!”

Let’s Go Play

“Let’s go play,” he said as he led her to the car.
“Oooh where are we going?” she asked, as she was always so curious.
He smirked, then blindfolded her and growled, “It’s a surprise, Kitten.”

When they arrived, he led her gently through what sounded like very heavy doors. She could hear ethereal music playing and delicious noises. She bit down on her bottom lip wondering where on earth he’d taken her. As he removed the blindfold and her eyes adjusted to the dim lighting, her face beamed with a smile as she pounced on him and whispered in his ear, “Oh yes, Daddy, let’s play!”

Smoke Break

We all know smoking is bad for you and there’s not a smoker on the planet that hasn’t had some goofball walk up to them while smoking and say, “Those things will kill you.” I don’t know if they think they’re being funny, helpful, or if they genuinely lack the brain power to come up with something more original and less insulting. I can’t imagine anyone has ever been mid cigarette, heard those words and been like, “Oh shit, let me put this out and stop then!” Well, I mean, did they actually do it and mean it? *laughs* Cuz I have done that to a few people just to see the look on their faces, but I never stopped smoking because someone said that to me.
In fact, it has been smoke breaks that got me closer to people. At my last job, there were people I never saw except when smoking. It was a form of networking and I loved it. You see, it just didn’t matter what job you had, how high up or menial your job…you had to go outside to smoke and there were designated areas. Even at home, I’m more apt to speak to one of my neighbors if we are both outside smoking.
If it wasn’t such a wretched habit, I’d recommend that everyone do it for those very reasons. Alas, I continue to struggle with my nicotine addiction. For me, there’s just nothing quite like holding a cigarette between my fingers, taking a long hit, and exhaling those tendrils of smoke. Sometimes, I do get so disgusted with the negative aspects of smoking that I go back to vaping and maybe one day I will successfully quit, but for now…*takes a long draw off a cigarette and blows the smoke at her screen*…I’m a smoker.

Bringing Sexy Back

“I’m bringing sexy back
Them other boys don’t know how to act
I think you’re special, what’s behind your back?
So turn around and I’ll pick up the slack.”
Justin Timberlake Sexy Back

I’d thought I’d bring some sexy back to my page by sharing a picture of the man I drool over every single day and really it was the best way to blog these items from Codex, as they are at Men Only Monthly. Who needs clothes when you wear accessories like that? Right? Well, you’re welcome, ladies…now just remember you can look and you can drool, but he’s mine…so hands off…I’m talking to you, Nikole…*giggles* If I go missing, it’ll be because he killed me for embarrassing him with this post or I might just disappear for a few days. *snickers* You can send a search party, but please make sure they are equipped with locksmith skills, kthx!

Just a Little Taste

So, Josh and I did a little thing with this pose. We both took a picture and mine is the main one of course, but the second one is by Josh Brian. I am so lucky to have found someone that shares my passion for photography. Not only does he support my endless hours of blogging, but he shoots pictures right along with me. Often times to my dismay, because as I’ve told Josh…I tend to create a scene with a particular view in my head. Then he comes along and shows the whole world how I’m not really even on the chair at all. *laughs* #busted!
So, here’s a little taste of our world together…his and her views. ♥

Just a Little Taste by Josh.png

I want to tell you a little bit about this pose, too, because the very talented (and equally crazy), Tracy Redangel happens to be one of my best friends.  And because she is such a close friend, I know how long and hard she worked on this pose set. Not only did she work on it for weeks (weeks? yes, because..well…SQUIRREL)…she provided three sets in the pack in an effort to cover all the bases. You see…there’s a huge height difference between Josh and I. He’s offered to go shorter for me, but I rather like him the way he is…plus…have you seen him? Talk about a fun tree to climb..*giggles*…anyway, Tracy’s pose store, Gingerfish Poses, is THE pose store to watch. She has years of pose making experience and well…she’s freaking awesome.

Smokin’ in the Boys Room

Okay, totally telling my age here, but when I was in the 7th grade, I started smoking. Save your lectures, I’m an adult now. You’re too late. Anyway, those of that did smoke, usually did it behind the store that was behind our school…before and after school, but on occasion the true rebels would sneak downstairs to the 6th grade boy’s bathroom, as no teachers ever went in there and it had a huge window that opened to the back of the school away from everything. The logistic were perfect for all sorts of “illegal” activities…of course, this meant any boys in the 6th grade had to hold it or go upstairs and brave the 7th graders bathroom.
A few years later, the song, “Smoking in the Boys Room” by Mötley Crüe was all the rage and a few of us from middle school were still friends and wished that the song had come out sooner. We wondered if people still smoked in the bathroom of our old stomping grounds. I know they don’t anymore as they tore the school down last year and a Walmart grew in its place.

A Kiss

“Kiss me, and you will see how important I am.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

I haven’t read The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath, although its certainly on my list now, because I originally thought this quote was from one of her poems. Upon my googley investigation, I discovered it’s not from a poem at all. Anyway, this post isn’t about Sylvia Plath, but y’all know me…I digress.

a-kiss2

I’m not going to say that a kiss ever made me fall in love, but I will say that there have been some kisses that made my stomach flutter and my knees weak! Some might wonder if that could even be possible in Second Life and I assure you it can. I’m not saying the lack of a great emoted kiss is going to stop a relationship from happening, because c’mon…in SL, at least for me, its all about personality. However, given how much I like to write, I really appreciate a well emoted kiss. I’m quite lucky at the moment, for Josh is quite adept in that area, weak knees and butterflies in my belly are a regular occurrence.

Okay, I know, you’ve all probably had enough mush and gush this week from Valentine’s Day, so I won’t keep on about it. Just enjoy the pictures…the pose is available at ON9 from Q-poses. Also, take a good look at the main picture at the very top, cuz those ears we’re wearing are pure FIRE….kinda like us…tehehe. Go check them out for yourself over at Tres Chic.

Just Love ♥

It’s officially Valentine’s Day. Yep, the day that some people are forced into expressing their love for each other. The day others rejoice in their love. The day that some feel is just another corporate holiday designed to make us shop. For some, its the loneliest day of the year. While I could not let Valentine’s Day pass without doing a post with Josh, I think its safe to say we’re more than mushy enough on a normal day. So, I won’t be passing out puke buckets and going on and one about how much I adore this wonderful man in my life. I will say that its a been a very very very long time since I’ve been this happy and I honestly don’t know that I’ve ever been loved quite like this. No relationship is perfect and we both bring more than our share of baggage to the table, hell…we drove full speed into each other with moving trucks. I kid you not, but somehow we make beautiful music together. That’s all I’ll say about us…in this post. *grins*

What I want to say about today, is that its a day about love. Not just couples in love, but love for each other and above all else, love for ourselves. I’ve been joking on my friend Troy since yesterday, because he did one of those facebook quizes that said he should ask himself to be his Valentine’s. Of course, given who Troy is and who his friends are…well…you can imagine all the dirty thoughts THAT inspired. However, it really got me to thinking about the age old adage, “You cannot truly love another until you love yourself.”
So, for this Valentine’s Day I want you all to go to the biggest mirror you have in your home, look yourself in the eyes and say, “I love you.” Even if you don’t mean it, I want you to say it, because YOU are worthy. No matter what you think of yourself, someone out there loves you.  There’s no argument for this, because there are even people who love the likes of Charles Manson (and if you don’t know who that is, we can’t be friends)….so if Charles Manson is lovable…well, so are you. Go on, love yourself. Buy yourself something nice. Tell your friends and family you love them, too. We never know when one life will end and another will begin, so don’t wait. Reach out and love…love yourself, your neighbor, you co-workers (yes, even that one)…JUST LOVE. ♥

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*
