This Just In.......

This just in……..someone was snapping pictures while Liz Winterstorm was on a break from her long day with photographers at the beach last week. It seems she reached the limit of her patience when one of the photographers asked something of her that she wasn’t willing to do. There’s no word at this time of what that might have been, but she stormed off the set and was seen snatching this ice cream cone from a 5 year old child, while in a fit of rage! The Mother of the child chased after her, but she refused to give it back and then proceeded into the water, not looking back. It’s believed that Liz has become hard to manage when working and an unknown source says everyone around her is fed up with her. “She used to be so nice and now no one can say anything to her without her yelling and screaming and threatening to quit!” says an insider. This isn’t the first incident with ice cream that Liz has been involved in, last month she was seen buying a 4 liter pail of her favourite flavour, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and when she saw someone with a camera she yelled epithets at them while running after them and swinging the frozen pail of ice cream like a weapon. Only time will tell how she manages, if or when she reaches the breaking point, everyone just hopes there’s enough ice cream within reach for her to calm down, while her staff calls the doctors.

Ok, none of this is true..you do know that, don’t you? I came by this ice cream cone completely on the up and up and no 5 year old was deprived of the treat. The ‘Ice Cream Party’ gacha set is part of the June round of PocketGACHA from Amitie. The set you’re playing for has 7 single commons, and 2 multi person RARE poses, all with props included. I’m using pose 2 from the set and although the ice cream isn’t my favourite flavour…it’s still damn good! PocketGACHA is a monthly HUD based gacha fair that’s super easy, with no endless TP’ing to get into the sim and only to find mega lag and crashing. Just stay home….try the demos……play all the gacha you can handle…and enjoy! 😀

I’m wearing the ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ from *Just BECAUSE* here, I had promised you’d see a rear view last time I wore it and I didn’t want to disappoint. It’s HUD driven with on/off toggles for both top and bottom plus the top has a toggle to make the ruffle the only part covering your girls. It comes in tons of colours, including the printpack and as always the fatpack has every colour you could want. The ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ is available at the JB main store for the FaMESHedGo event, which is ongoing til the end of the month.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from HUD A from tram.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at Cherishville at Mysteria Cove for this shot.

Maneater

Everybody look at me, me
I walk in the door you start screaming
Come on everybody what you here for?
Move your body around like a nympho
Everybody get your necks to crack around
All you crazy people come on jump around
I want to see you all on your knees, knees
You either want to be with me, or be me!

Maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard
Make you want all, of her love
She’s a maneater
make you buy cars
make you cut cards
make you fall, real hard in love
She’s a Maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard
Make you want all, of her love
She’s a maneater
make you buy cars
make you cut cards
Wish you never ever met her at all!

And when she walks she walks with passion
when she talks, she talks like she can handle it
when she asks for something boy she means it
even if you never ever seen it
everybody get your necks to crack around
all you crazy people come on jump around
you doing anything to keep her by your side
because, she said she love you, love you long time!

Never ever met her at all!
you wish you never ever met her at all!
you wish you never ever met her at all!
you wish you never ever met her at all!
you wish you never ever met her at all!

Maneater‘ ~Nelyy Furtado~

When wanting to use the word ‘maneater’ for the title of this post I was given two choices for a song to go with it! This one, and ‘Maneater’ by Hall & Oates. I’d not heard this one but the other one I knew well. I decided on this one mainly because I like the beat and it has a dog in the video! 😀 Plus, it’s Nelly Furtado, who’s a fellow Canadian! For anyone not from Canada, you’d be amazed at who is! I mean…everyone knows Justin Beiber’s Canadian……please don’t assume all Canadians are like him……oh and Nickelback is too! The band that’s sold millions of albums yet no one admits to liking their music. Celine Dion, William Shatner, Drake, and Howie Mandel are all Canadian as well, as are James Cameron, Neil Young and Donald Sutherland. I just googled ‘famous Canadians’ and found a huge list of people…..and I have to admit that I’ve not heard of a lot of them. The claim to fame for some of them is ‘Instagram Star’, ‘Vlogger’ or ‘Youtuber’…like who considers that being famous? I should keep scrolling…….there may be a ‘Liz Winterstorm’ listed as ‘famous SL blogger’! It’s as valid to stardom as ‘Instagram star’ or ‘vlogger’…..like……wtf……that’s not being a star……..that’s just silly 😀

I made a fast trip around the June round of Shiny Shabby, and now that I’ve done that I’ll be staying home and eating Ramen noodles for a month, wow…..did I shop! I could not resist the ‘Quilted Leather Jacket’ and ‘Sequin Denim Skirt’ from RKKN.. The texturing is incredible….the fit divine….and wearing this outfit makes me feel like a million bucks! They’re fitted for the Maitreya-Lara, Belleza-Freya, and SLink-Hourglass mesh bodies and come in lots of colours with the fatpacks containing some bonus colours.

The ‘G1113’ hair is from tram.

I’m using pose 3 from the ‘Amara’ set of poses from Imitation.

I’m standing in front of the diner and the ’64 Chev Impala SS that’s at Mother Road.

Everlong

Hello
I’ve waited here for you
Everlong
Tonight
I throw myself into
And out of the red
Out of her head she sang

Come down
And waste away with me
Down with me
Slow how
You wanted it to be
I’m over my head
Out of her head she sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when she sang

Breathe out
So I can breathe you in
Hold you in
And now
I know you’ve always been
Out of your head
Out of my head I sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when she sang

[Whisper:]
So, Dad would take the Sundays off.
And that’s the only time he could ever get any rest.
And so, because we were loud on Sundays, he’d make us hold his construction boots over our head, ’til we’d sleep.
And they were really heavy boots and I used to say, “Dad, come on, please.”
And like start crying, ’cause they’re too heavy.

And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when

Everlong‘ ~Foo Fighters~

This is the pose ‘Break’ from Shadow’s Poses and what I really love about it is it’s gentle relaxed look which really translates well in photographs. I’m taking some quiet time for myself in bed, just concentrating on being calm and thinking nice thoughts. There are so many things that can make a picture speak and it all starts with a pose, all the little details do matter, but it all starts here!

I’m wearing part of the ‘Diana’ set of lingerie in noir from /erratic/. This is the ‘Cheeky Thong and Tube Bra’. I love the whole set though, there’s 3 thong versions, 2 bras, wrist cuffs, suspenders, and stocking in 3 colours and it’s a sight to behold when worn as a set. The lace and pearls are shear perfection together!

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Cherish the Day

You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer
If you were mine
If you were mine
I wouldn’t want to go to heaven

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
You’re ruling the way that I move
You take my air

You show me how deep love can be

You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away

You show me how deep love can be
You show me how deep love can be
This is my prayer

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away
Won’t shy

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray

I Cherish the Day

Cherish the Day‘ ~Sade~

If, at the end of the day, you can look back and be satisfied that you’ve done all you can to make the day count, it’s been a very good day. How do we make a day count? First off I try to accomplish something, no matter how big or small, just make at least one step forward. I make sure to laugh as much as I can…even though some days all it might be is a small smile while considering the irony of this world. I want the people I love know how I feel about them, it may not always be obvious but even just doing something nice for them can let them know they matter. To make a day complete it’s good to do something for yourself, reading a book while soaking in a bath or taking a walk to collect your thoughts….doesn’t matter what it is….if a person enjoys it….then do it! Unless, of course, it’s illegal…….then I don’t want to know about it. 😀 A random act of kindness is always good to make a day better, both the giver and the receiver benefit from one small good deed each day. And when I lay down at night I remember to appreciate that I’ve had another day here on this earth and that if I don’t make it through the night ahead….at least I made my last day count!

First off, I want to thank Vrir for enjoying this sunset with me. There are few things better than feeling a light evening breeze coming in off the water and hearing the soft sounds of the waves lapping at the shore, at the end of a perfect day. ♥

Ok, I know this picture’s a little bit dark……well….yea….maybe more than a little bit, but I wanted this lighting, so I’m hoping Robert Galland of Galland Homes will understand that the daybed, which I’m featuring here, is somewhat lost in the silhouette but I’ll make it up with a closer look below. The ‘Freeman Day Bed’ is the newest release from Galland Homes and it’s exclusive to the FaMESHedGO HUD based shopping event and available at the Main Store. It has a land impact of 8 and is available in PG and Adult, with bento animations and sequences included with both versions. The animations are high quality and there’s a few that I’ve not seen before and are SO adorable!

Arc

Arc‘ ~Eddie Vedder!

I have to admit that the songs I choose aren’t always long time favourites of mine. I spend a lot of time on YouTube listening to new artists that I’ve not yet heard. I love when a song is with a photo on flickr, I always have to click that link to listen to the song that someone chose to put with that particular image. It’s a great way to find new songs and artists that I might not already be familiar with. So, if you put a link to a song with your picture, know that I am going to be listening to it. In turn, I like to try to introduce my followers to music that maybe they hadn’t heard before, you may not like it all, but each song I choose to feature strikes me in some way emotionally. I haven’t shared anything by Eddie Vedder recently, so I decided to search him on YouTube and way down the list of videos I found this one. I find it haunting and completely magical…mainly because there’s no lyrics to take the focus off of the music iteslf. The sounds and emotion are more than enough to make my mind slow down and to breath deep in relaxation. When I find music that soothes me, I tend to go to it again and again to help me find a moment or two of peace. Eddie Vedder does that for me, regardless of the song, there’s something about his voice and the emotion he puts into it that takes me away from the real world and into a more peaceful and loving place.

I’m out on the dock at my home, and although I look like I’m napping, I’m not….I’m just taking a few moments to enjoy the quiet around me. The pose I’m using is from the F.4 set of bento poses from IntoXx. The set consists of 5 sitting poses, all natural, relaxed and unique. I’ve always been a pose hoarder in Second Life, and at this point I can’t even guess at how many I have, but I’m always looking for new ones. IntoXx has both male and female poses plus some very nice couples poses that I’ll be showing you in the near future. I’ve always felt that the choice of pose is the most important part of a photograph, then I add windlight and camera angle, trying to get the picture to speak for me. This set of poses, plus a men’s set of poses and 2 new couples poses from IntoXx, are available now at the ACCESS event, which runs until July 7.

As for my outfit, I’m wearing the ‘Michonne’ tank top from /erratic/ with the ‘Ella’ denim shorts from LEGAL INSANITY, which you can’t see…but believe me they’re there! The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram and the ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink. As always I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m sitting on the ‘Jenica Wicker Chair’ from Trompe Loeil.
