Krampus & the Grinch

It’s no secret that I’m a bit bah humbug about the holidays season, mostly because its funny. I almost hate to admit that I actually have some of the best Christmas memories from my childhood that anyone could hope for. Though this entire holiday season is especially hard due to the happenings in real life, but I’m surviving it so far. Pretty sure I gained another 10lbs from Thanksgiving, though. I like food…waaayyy too much.
Anyhoo, whether you love the holidays and all that it offers traditionally or you prefer to be on the Krampus & the Grinch side of it, there’s one event on the grid every single year that never fails deliver exactly what you’d hope to find. That event is Tannenbaum and its one of three events put on by Prism Events every year. I know there’s been some drama between event owners and script writers, and I’m certainly not going to pretend to know the whole truth. What I am asking is that you not punish the designers that were already signed up for these events before the drama went public. So, if you chose a side…I didn’t…but if you did, that is certainly your prerogative…please do not punish those designers that are innocently caught in the crossfire. Besides you’ll also be punishing yourself by missing out on amazing creations. Let’s have a happy holidays and leave the differences to those that are directly involved, k? I’m wishing you all a holiday season filled with love & laughter♥

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.

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?

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

Winning!

Thank you, Kiddo Oh!♥

Most of us have seen the SL Facebook and Flickr contests promoting new items with the like, comment, and share to enter requirements. I will do them to help promote creators, but I don’t expect to win. There are people in this world that are lucky and win lots of stuff…I had an aunt like that once. I’m not one of those people. If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have none at all. Until now! I won the Dead Dollz Arcade set from Facebook. Now when Kiddo Oh gave me my prize, she told me there was something special in the box for me. I couldn’t imagine what it was, but I figured maybe she threw in a gift card or maybe a special color. I never imagined it would be this! When you look at the photo below, you will see that she took my FB profile picture and created a wall texture that looks like a chalk rendering. I’m so over the moon with this entire set, but that wall made me squeal.I also wanted to show off the lingerie she put out for the latest round of FaMESHed. It just so happens that all this tied together perfectly with both the Clara office collection and the Clara closet collection from Silence. You can click on the photo below and it will take you to flickr where you can get a better look at everything. I can’t think of a single girl, especially bloggers, that wouldn’t be thrilled with this set. So…happy shopping and good luck…you never know…you actually might win after all!!♥

Let Me Go

This says everything I have to say and more…

Avril Lavigne – Let Me Go ft. Chad Kroeger

Love that once hung on the wall
Used to mean something, but now it means nothing
The echoes are gone in the hall
But I still remember, the pain of December

Oh, there isn’t one thing left you could say
I’m sorry it’s too late

I’m breaking free from these memories
Gotta let it go, just let it go
I’ve said goodbye
Set it all on fire
Gotta let it go, just let it go

You came back to find I was gone
And that place is empty,
Like the hole that was left in me
Like we were nothing at all
It’s not what you meant to me
Thought we were meant to be

Oh, there isn’t one thing left you could say
I’m sorry it’s too late

I’m breaking free from these memories
Gotta let it go, just let it go
I’ve said goodbye
Set it all on fire
Gotta let it go, just let it go

I let it go and now I know
A brand new life is down this road
And when it’s right, you always know
So this time I won’t let go

There’s only one thing left here to say
Love’s never too late

I’ve broken free from those memories
I’ve let it go, I’ve let it go
And two goodbyes led to this new life
Don’t let me go, don’t let me go

Don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go

Won’t let you go, don’t let me go

The Desert

I’ve always wanted to see the desert. I’ve seen some beautiful mountains, both in the U.S. and in Europe, but the desert…nope. Maybe one day before I die, but it’s doubtful. I don’t foresee my ass getting on a plane, that’s for damn sure. As for a road trip? Sure, it sounds like a blast, but to be fair, if I’m heading west in a car, I’m heading for Utah. Clearly, not for the site seeing, but that’s where one of my best friends lives and I’d rather see her than some long ass stretch of sand. Which is what I’ve been told the desert looks like by those that have lived there. They don’t seem to find it all that impressive at all. I suppose that’s like New Yorkers never going to the top of the Empire State building or the Statue of Liberty. Sometimes it takes an outsider to appreciate the things we so often take for granted.

Anyway, all this hacienda themed stuff really had me thinking about that…and well, there ya go…that’s how my blog works…lol.

Achill Island

So, one of my best friends is Grace Sixpence and she has recently acquired a homestead. She had the sim professionally landscaped to represent an actual island in Ireland and it is gorgeous. I could not resist going straight over and taking a photo for my blog. I will definitely return for more photos and I encourage you to do the same. She has opened it to the public and you can join her group at the landing point. You can also post your photos to her flickr group. So, after your next shopping trip, head on over to Achill Island for a great photo with a fantastic background, no matter where you pose.

The Classy Cougar

When I was younger, there was this woman, my mother’s age, that lived in my neighborhood that always fascinated me. At the time, I thought how much I’d like to be like her one day. Alas, that was not my destiny. She was beautiful and elegant, at least I thought so. Mind you, I was young and rather impressionable, not to mention naive. I just remember that she wore lingerie whenever you saw her at home. No, not pajamas, but beautiful lingerie, with long sheer, lace robes…some even had that furry stuff around the edges…and heels! Oh, she always had on heels to match. She was quite popular, as I’m sure you can imagine. How does the line in the song go…”She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends.” She definitely had those.
For a long time, I just watched her in admiration, imagining what life was like inside her apartment. I eventually met her and she was every bit as amazing in person. I went inside her apartment and it was amazing. The colors, the curtains…she had so many beautiful things. I got to know her over the coming months. I could probably write an entire book about her. Instead, I’m sharing a brief memory of a glamorous Nubian queen that I met once upon a time, because when setting up this photo I thought of her. Isn’t it funny the impressions that people sometimes leave on our lives?
