Dear Bloggers…pt 2

Dear Bloggers,

Please stop treating what we do as a competition. It’s not a sport. There’s room for everyone.
Stop stabbing other bloggers in the back or trying to throw them under the bus. It rarely works out the way you hope it does and in the end, karma finds it’s way back to you.
Remember that none of us are perfect. Learn to forgive one another for misunderstandings and work together as a community.
Don’t bad mouth each other in front of their best friends.
Remember who helped you when you first started, know that as much as you run your mouths, so do the people you run and talk to.
Don’t bash a brand or even hint at bashing a brand in a public forum. You’re only making yourself look bad and you’re burning more than one bridge when you do that.
Stop taking everything so personally. The world doesn’t revolve around you.
Don’t be afraid to try new things.
There’s no need to suck up to designers and lie to them about the people that work for them. Designers are not idiots and you can damn well bet they know what they’re doing and who is who on their teams.
Accept feedback for what it is, constructive criticism, remember that it’s not your brand.
And last but not least, if YOU think this post is aimed at you….well, you might want to think about why you think that and just for the record, this isn’t actually aimed at one person specifically. This is just a list of what I thought was common sense behaviors, but apparently isn’t. Not sure why I bother doing these little schpeils, but I suppose I hope its going to make a difference. *shrugs* If you found anything useful, take it and use it. If not, leave it here and forget it. I really just want people to stop wasting their precious time on hate and negativity. So…happy shopping…happy blogging…happy living. ❤

Take Your Time

Why is everyone in such a hurry these days? I’m referring to SL relationships. We’ve all seen the people that jump in and out of relationships. Partnered to someone new every other week or month, then complain about why their relationships didn’t work. Seems like an awful lot of unnecessary drama and hurt feelings to me. I used to think I had a four month expiration date, because my average SL relationship was only lasting four months, but I didn’t rush into any of them. The last one I had, we dated quietly for months before telling anyone, much less becoming official. Now, I’ve been single for over 3 months and I simply can’t imagine rushing into anything with any of the men I’ve met. It can take weeks for me to even figure out whether or not I want to have sex with someone. Granted there are those that you know immediately that sex is definitely on the table, but in those instances I’m not expecting it to be anything but casual. I’m not an idiot. Sex does not equal love or even slove as my friend, Poppy, puts it. (I tend to agree with her on that.) I dunno, I guess we all have our pace. It just seems to me if you take your time and really get to know someone first, you might save yourself some heartache. Then again, what do I know….368 day of what I thought was magic turned out to be really disposable and I was easily replaced in no time at all. *shrugs* So, I have no idea who the hell I think I am giving relationship advice, but that’s what’s on my mind today. So, that’s what you get.

Lost in Memories

Sometimes I wake up and forget my world has changed. I forget that I sleep alone while he sleeps in the other room. I have to remind myself not to reach for him, that I curl up to pillows and blankets now. It’s been two years, but I still miss the struggle of not keeping him awake with my restless body. I no longer have to be quiet or careful when getting up in the middle of the night to pee. You’d think I’d be used to it by now, but no.
I drag my house out of bed and pull myself together. I find distractions to get me through another day. I really thought we were would last forever. I believed he was the one that would never leave. I have yet to let go of the hope that this is just a nightmare. That I’ll wake from this dream to find him next to me again. I don’t really want to let him go.
I try to find his faults. I recite all the things he does that annoy me and I know I will miss them when he’s gone. From time to time, I remind him that I love him…that I’m willing to fight. He reminds me that he has given up and my heart breaks a little more each time. Our vows meant everything to me and nothing to him. I’m left alone to get lost in memories.

In Between

Kelsea Ballerini – In Between

In between just a flame and a ring
In between an apartment and a frontporch swing
In between cheap and fancy a guitar and a Grammy
In between reckless and responsibility
Sometimes I’m my mother’s daughter, sometimes I’m her friend
Sometimes I play grown up and sometimes I play pretend
Sometimes I’m a princess dressed all ribbons and all curls
And sometimes I just wanna scream “I’m not a little girl!“
Dumb enough to think I know it all
Smart enough to know I don’t
Young enough to think I’ll live forever
Old enough to know I won’t
In between
In between beer and basement
And Napa Valley vacation
In between hometown and a neon city
In between underestimated and overexpectated
Who I was and who I’m gonna be
Sometimes I’m my mother’s daughter, sometimes I’m her friend
Sometimes I play grown up and sometimes I play pretend
Sometimes I’m a princess dressed all ribbons and all curls
And sometimes I just wanna scream, “I’m not a little girl“
Dumb enough to think I know it all
Smart enough to know I don’t
Young enough to think I’ll live forever
Old enough to know I won’t
I know I won’t
I’m half head up in the clouds, half feet down on the ground
‘Cause it ain’t that simple
As an adult sittin’ on that page when they say, “Act your age“
But you’re stuck there in the middle
Sometimes I’m my mother’s daughter, sometimes I’m her friend
Sometimes I play grown up and sometimes I play pretend
Sometimes I’m a princess dressed all ribbons and all curls
And sometimes I just wanna scream “I’m not a little girl!“
Dumb enough to think I know it all
Smart enough to know I don’t
Young enough to think I’ll live forever
Old enough to know I won’t
In the in between
Yeah
In the in between
hey sweetpea it’s mama
Just wanna let you know that I love you
Thinkin’ about you, missin’ you while I’m on the road
Can’t wait to see you when I get back

Exorcism

I thought about writing a short little story for this picture, but I’m too amused seeing Josh dressed up as a priest. The idea that someone could cast out my demons with some water and a cross amuses me just as much. However, the exorcism kit from Fancy Decor is so detailed and amazing that its impossible to ignore. I could not resist putting together a photo and again, putting Josh in a priest costume was way too funny. Pretty sure it burned his avatar, because he couldn’t take it off fast enough once the picture was taken.

Appreciation

She knew she’d been a bit of a brat the last few days. She also knew he loved it, but only to a point. She recognized his limits as well as he did hers. A few days was enough. Today, when he arrived she would be waiting like a good girl. She’d placed two glasses of whiskey and his favorite cigars on the makeshift table by his favorite chair. She’d put on something sweet, yet naughty so he’d have some nice eye candy while he relaxed after his long day at work. She would be ready for whatever he wanted and would be most obedient. It was time she showed him some appreciation and just to make sure there were absolutely not obstacles in his way…she left her panties on the floor as a sign he would surely recognize.

Waiting For Recess

In the U.S. all through elementary school, we had recess. Now I’ve heard in the UK they just call it morning break, lunch break, etc. Either way, I think we can all agree that as little kids we all looked forward to those particular breaks in the day when we could go play. These days, I’m so busy in SL that I find myself looking forward to more adult play time. *grins*
I was recently asked if I would be willing to show my kinky side on my blog and it amused me, because I think I often do. However, since it was asked, as I’ve been offered an amazing opportunity, I think my readers should brace themselves for some more risque pictures. This works out fine for me, as I absolutely love doing sexy pictures and as some of my close friends, and of course, Josh…well, they know I’m a freak.
So this is me waiting for adult recess… *grins*

Let’s Dance

In all my years on the grid, I’ve never been one for formal wear. I think a big part of it was that the skirts of yesteryears were so fluffy and big they often swallowed your date and not in a good way. *smirks* Like most things in SL gowns have come a long way and I have never enjoyed them more. Especially when wearing a gown like this Empress Maxi dress from Cynful. The details are incredible. It certainly doesn’t hurt to have such a handsome dance partner. *smiles*

SL never ceases to amaze me and I am never bored in this wondiferous virtual world as there continue to be adventures, new experiences, and new talent at every turn. I am so  very grateful for the amazing aesthetics that the incredible designers introduce into my world.

Soaking Up The Sun

Summer is almost here and that means bikini season! This makes me so freaking happy, because I just love drinking margaritas by the pool and hanging out with friends…half naked friends. Rebel Hope has made some of my favorite bikinis to date and her offering at the Fifth Anniversary of FaMESHed is no exception. Its a fatpack must have! Fortunately, Trompe Loeil also has an amazing pool/patio combo so I don’t have to go far to lounge around in my new bikini!
Of course, these are just more things that I can only do in a virtual world. In the real world, my skin is so fair its translucent. Seriously, you can see my veins. If I spend more than ten minutes in the sun, I’m well on my way to a sunburn. On a rare occasion that sunburn it totally worth it…even if after the burn is gone, I feel like a snake shedding its skin for the following month.
