Can you tell I like donuts?

When I was growing up I knew of two donut shops in the whole city. One was a local shop that was really close to our house. The other was Krispy Kreme, but I had no idea this was part of a chain. I thought we had the only one. So, when I saw the donuts in the grocery store, I found it really odd that anyone would buy them there instead of just going and getting them when they were “HOT NOW.” For those that don’t know the chain, they have a neon light that pops on when the donuts are just done which is the absolute best time to eat them. They melt in your mouth and they are amazing! Of course, a few years later I figured out that you can also achieve this “HOT NOW,” melt in your mouth effect, by popping them in the microwave for a few seconds. However, it wasn’t until I heard about Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell eating them in New York that I realized Krispy Kreme was part of a chain! I was sheltered and naïve, okay? Now that I’m all grown up and far less naïve, I’ve discovered that the best donuts come from different places! Nothing beats a “HOT NOW,” which is what I honestly thought Krispy Kreme donuts were called for most of my childhood. However, for a proper Boston Cream, it has to be Dunkin. Never count out a local donut shop or grocery store bakery though, cuz Publix (a grocery store chain) makes the BEST apple fritters! Can you tell I like donuts? LOL

I’m terrified, but I can’t resist

Your eyes, so crisp, so green
Sour apple baby, but you taste so sweet
You got hips like Jagger and two left feet
And I wonder if you’d like to meet
Your voice is velvet through a telephone
You can come to mine, but both my roommates are home
Think I know a bar where they would leave us alone
And I wonder if you’d take it slow
Oh, we’re dancin’ in my livin’ room
And up come my fists
And I say I’m only playing, but
The truth is this
That I’ve never seen a mouth that I would kill to kiss
And I’m terrified, but I can’t resist
And I said
Beautiful stranger, here you are in my arms and I know
That beautiful strangers only come along to do me wrong
And I hope
Beautiful stranger, here you are in my arms
But I think it’s finally, finally, finally, finally, finally safe
For me to fall

I’m terrified, but I can’t resist

She would shine

“She was like the sun,
She knew her place in the world –
She would shine again regardless
of all the storms and changeable weather
She wouldn’t adjust her purpose
for things that pass.”
― Nikki Rowe

This post is all about Bloom by Prism Events. I have been blogging for Prism Events…well, for years. I absolutely love the three events they put on throughout the years. Bloom is all about Spring and this year, with Easter around the corner, we’ve got an abundance of cute Easter themed items, as well. Don’t get too overwhelmed thinking that these items will only work for Spring, though. As you can see by the photo, I’ve created a summer theme using the gorgeous house from Concept that you can acquire at the Arcade. If you want to see more of the house, I did two posts about it earlier this month. You can see those here and here.
I grabbed this hair weeks ago during a Fifty Linden Friday and then yesterday Cynful released silky textures on their Buttoned Tube Top. Knowing Cyn, it’s probably still out so hurry! The rest just kinda fell into place as I was looking around at the different items I’d collected from Bloom. All in all, I’m really pleased with how my photo turned out. I hope it will inspire you to create some wonderful Spring & Summer spots of your own, or at least a cute outfit…cuz these shorts…*bites her lip*…they are sooo cute!!!!

Neutral

Matching shoes to outfits is often one of the curses we face in the fashion world. However, when it comes to matching an outfit from {le fil casse}, I know hands down that Breathe will be my goto for shoes. Their color palettes are very similar and if all else fails, you can find that perfect neutral color at Breathe. I still remember the first pair of shoes I bought from Breathe back in the day. They were a neutral tone with a big buckle at the ankle and I wore those shoes a lot! I’m all about some neutral tones from head to toe. Both of these brands are amazing for that.

It’s hard to show in a still photograph, but I did my best to show the glitter on the dress. However, what you don’t see is that this glitter sparkles! Not like bling. Don’t be silly. Jacinda has infused some sort of moving glitter magic on this dress and it is wonderful. I mean, who doesn’t love shiny, sparkly dresses?!?!?

One more quick little shoutout. Valentine’s Day is around the corner, but not all of us have a romantic interest, much less a Valentine. No matter what side of the V-day coin you relate to, there’s a coffee cup for you at Burrow Co. You can see my favorite in the photo, but if you click the link you’ll see all three. Naturally, I had to put Rezz Room’s chihuahua in the photo, cuz if you’ve been to Burrow Co., you’ve probably met Gus the resident coffee house mascot. There’s so much to see there, so drop by, grab a cup of coffee, and explore the sim. ♥

Going Through the Motions

Lately, I’ve just been going through the motions of putting one foot in front of another. I’m faking it until I make it, you could say. This year has taken quite a toll on me, as it has most of us. I’ve counted my blessings and I promise I am grateful. However, some days putting on that happy face is a huge struggle. The holidays haven’t really helped much. Fortunately, that’s almost over for a while. I’m holding on to the hope that 2021 is a better year. I want to say that it has to be, but I think that this year has proven…repeatedly…that it can always get worse.

What dirty dishes?

This is how you get out of trouble for not doing the dishes. *grins* You just stand real pretty in something distracting and offer some treats. Now, what significant other could possibly be upset about a few dishes in the sink when they can have hot cocoa, churros, and this? None with a pulse, I can tell you that! *giggles*

Mostly Anxious

Today is going to be an exceptionally busy day for me. I have to go out into the cold world. Yes, I mean, literally cold. I need to vote and run some errands. Ugh, I so hate leaving my house. Meanwhile, at home…inworld…its that time again and I need to get TLC open and ready for our dedicated shoppers. I’m excited about this round and hope to do some pictures of some of the amazing designs our creators have exhibited this round. I don’t have a ton to talk about right now. I’m most feeling really anxious about going out today and facing the voting lines.

Adjusting to the Weather

I woke up this morning and was soooo cold. Like chilled to the bone cold. I immediately opened my curtains to let the warmth of the sun in and grabbed my favorite sweater. Here I sit all bundled up with my coffee…shivering…I look at my phone to check the temperature thinking it must be below freezing, right? WRONG. It’s 52°F/11°C. Mind you, we had the air conditioner on two days ago and its set to only come on when the temp is above 78°F/26°C. While its certainly a lot colder than two days ago, I’m sitting here laughing, because a month from now….52°F/11°C is going to seem quite warm.
Isn’t it funny how our bodies adjust so quickly? It really is quite fascinating when you think about it. I’m happy for the cooler temps, I’ll just be happier once my body adjusts.

I’m so, so done

‘Cause I’m so, so done
Guardin’ my tongue, holdin’ me back
I’m livin’ the way that I want

Fighting myself, goin’ through Hell
I’m livin’ the way that I want
I’m livin’ the way that I want

I’m livin’ the way that I want
I’m livin’ the way that I want

I lost control over all my energy
Done so much damage to my heart
I’ve given in, I’ve changed my identity
I didn’t mean to go so far, umm-mm

Oh my God (God)
I wish (Wish) I could be (Be) better than this
My God, wish (Wish) I could be (Oh-oh)

Stay Safe

I haven’t talked about the Corona Virus on my blog much, because I feel like everyone is dealing with it across the globe in a variety of ways. I can’t speak for people in other countries or even in other parts of my own. What I see locally scares me to absolutely no end. People in my neck of the woods are carrying on as if nothing has happened. While a few businesses have closed down and schools have shut their doors, the bulk of my area is carrying on as if nothing has happened. Some people are even quite belligerent in their protests of the places that have closed. I have no doubt that the virus will wash over this area like a tsunami within a week and THAT scares the crap out of me. I just want everyone to stay safe and do their part in reducing the curve.
