To My American Friends

To My American Friends

I’d like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends from south of the border! Us northerners celebrate turkey day in October and the big meal and days of leftovers are only a memory now, but for everyone in the US, it’s about sharing, loving, and giving thanks. It doesn’t matter what you do, what you have, or who you are, there is so much to be thankful for, remember that, if you have the urge to knock someones teeth out to get that TV for a few dollars cheaper. Be thankful for what you already have, because really, if you have a roof over your head, food on the table, and you’re surrounded by your loved ones, what more do you really need?

There’s two events going on right now that LEGAL INSANITY is participating in, and that’s the only reason you need to know you don’t want to miss either of them! First off, the November round of Tres Chic is going strong and LI has the ‘Lula Sweaters’ exclusive to it! They’re fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(HG), and Belleza mesh bodies and come in six colours or the fatpack, which makes them customizable. Tres Chic runs until December 10. The November round of Shiny Shabby is open and LEGAL INSANITY is also there, this time with the exclusive ‘Bea Skirts’. These denim skirts are so cool, the hemline is like none other with the back up high to show be a little bit cheeky and the front kind of indescribable, which is why I’m sharing a link just show you! Shiny Shabby is sporting a new look and lots of great designers, you’ve got until December 15 to get in on the fun.

The ‘Shut Up & Listen Headphones’ are from [Z O O M] and available at the current round of Men Only Monthly. The set includes various versions including 2 for the head, 1 for the neck and one on a support for easy storing, plus it’s HUD driven with 2 styles and 6 colours. MOM runs until December 15.

This is the ‘WAKANA’, blacks hair from Argrace.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, which is available now at APPLIQUÈ. ‘Raine’ is looking lovely on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is the ‘Uh huhhuh, male’ pose from Del May.

I’m at my favourite spot on the gorgeous Hazardous sim.

These Hands

These Hands

When you look at your hands, what do you see? It’s easy to see eight fingers and two thumbs, rough and calloused hands, fingernails cut short, lines and creases crisscrossing the palms, at least that’s what I see! But look deeper! Look at what they can do, they can comfort, heal, caress, connect, love, and hold tight. They transcend all that the flesh, blood, and bone are and become an extension of your heart. They can express your feelings in such a way that touches people, and not just physically. A hand to the heart to show devotion, a finger to the lips to silence and calm, a blown kiss to show love, cupped palms to hold dear, and outstretched hands to share. Words can be said with many meanings and interpretations, but the hands will always show the truth!

I’d like you to have a close look at the ‘Autumn Bento Rings’ from Slipper Originals. This simple yet beautiful set of rings really show the beauty in life, to me. The tree of life and the autumn leaves bring peace and help to ground a person, and remind that life, at it’s very base, is to love, laugh, and live. The set includes left and right rings, HUD driven with six metal options and on/off on each ring. They fit the Maitreya and SLink bento hands and are available now at the Autumn Frost Fair, which runs until December 6.

I’m wearing the ‘Ethan Boyfriend Top’ from GIZ SEORN.

This is the G1020 hair from tram.

The skin is the gorgeous ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada and available now at APPLIQUÈ. ‘Raine’ looks lovely on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya, bento hands included.

The pose is ‘these hands’ from Del May.

Wake Me Up

Wake Me Up

How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
Leading you down into my core where I’ve become so numb
Without a soul my spirit’s sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there and lead it back home

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Now that I know what I’m without
You can’t just leave me
Breathe into me and make me real
Bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Bring me to life
(I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside)
Bring me to life

Frozen inside without your touch
Without your love, darling
Only you are the life among the dead

All this time I can’t believe I couldn’t see
Kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
Got to open my eyes to everything
Without a thought, without a voice, without a soul
Don’t let me die here
There must be something more
Bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Bring me to life
(I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside)
Bring me to life

The first thing I want to talk about is the newest release from Galland Homes! This is the ‘Laurel Ridge Pavilion’ and the package includes the pavilion itself(16 LI), a planter, and some random firewood, plus it includes a snow roof, to make your winter landscaping look complete. There’s soft fire sounds, which is on/off on touch, to make it an intimate little area to spend time with your special someone, or all by yourself if you need that quiet space to recharge. The pavilion is available now at the ULTRA Event, which runs until December 8. For more pictures and information on this release check out Galland Homes on flickr.

I’m sitting on the ‘Cozy Corner’ from Mudhoney which is part of the November round of Deco(c)rate. It’s texture change with five colours, has a LI of 2, and includes 26 single, 14 PG couples, and 8 parent/child animations.

Take Me Away From Here

Take Me Away From Here

It’s day 16 with snow on the ground and wintry conditions here, only another 150 or so to go before it might end! But who’s counting? 😀 It’s not even officially winter yet, but the Canadian prairies have never considered that relevant when it comes to weather. So, I know I shouldn’t be tired of it already, but I’m just feeling a little edgy! I’d like to get in the truck and just pick a direction and drive. Summer driving is nice…the roads are dry and clear and it’s nice to get out for some fresh air along the way. But winter driving, feels totally different. The heater is blasting out warm air making the vehicle all cozy, the fresh Tim Horton’s hot chocolate I stop for is steamy and full of chocolatey goodness. The music of choice fits my mood perfectly as I point the truck to the west and begin my journey. It always seems a journey starts by going west. It’s always easier driving in the summer when the roads are clear, but winter can throw some nasty stuff at you at times, so its always good to be aware of any changes going on outside. With the amount of miles that I’ve driven over the years on the road, I’ve come to accept bad driving conditions as just part of the journey, and although it slows me down, I’m not bothered by it. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some scary experiences, but average icy or snowy roads or bad visibility don’t bother me. The rain when it’s -15°C isn’t one of my favourite things, that floating feeling always sends a burst of adrenaline through my body, making me super focused and ready for anything. The one thing I learned about winter driving, which many people seem to not realize, is that speed is everything. Slow down people, just slow down! It may mean you get where you’re going a little late, but you know what they say, better late than never!

I’m standing out on Route 66 at Mother Road, I can’t decide if I should hop in that truck and go, emulating Thelma and Louise as I go flying off the cliff of the sim, or should I just hitch hike and hope someone nice picks me up. Neither of those choices seems like a good idea! So, I’ll just stand here, in quiet contemplation.

Take a look at the ‘Adette Heels’ from Ingenue, here! These super cute ice creamy, ooey gooey topping and waffle cone shoes are just what someone with a sweet tooth needs! They fit the SLink and Maitreya high feet and come in 12 sweet colours, these are the raspberry. They’re available at the Candy Fair until December 1.

The ‘Pepper’ hair is from [KoKoLoReS] and this is from the Balayage pack. I love it’s short and sexy style!

The ‘Bella Tank Top’ in nude is from Tres Blah.

These jeans are from a previous round of Luxe Box from Blueberry.

You can see just a bit of the ‘Just Love’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear. It’s a tattoo that I like to have on a lot, hoping to send a message, or at the very least remind me to love, even when it’s not the emotion of choice at any given moment.

The ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone is from Avada and available now at Appliquè. She looks beautiful on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is pose 63 from MILA Poses.

Rise

Rise
“We rise by lifting others”

~Robert Ingersoll~

You can beat me down with your words, your rumours, and your hatred, but I know that as you do, you will plummet further down and faster than you could ever imagine. And as I fall, small and alone, I have a spark deep within me that cannot be extinguished. You feel your power and believe nothing can ever touch you, for you believe hatred is what makes you strong. But what you don’t know, is that your power will never defeat me, for I will rise up as high as the sky, as you plummet further down and keep spreading your lies. You will hate me and I will forgive you, and that’s not what you want. You want me to cower at your feet and proclaim that you have bested me, but that can never happen, for as you hate I will love, and I will rise by lifting others.

The beautiful pose, ‘fallen backwards’, is from Del May, and is the inspiration for this picture.

The ‘Queen Rose’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear is the newest group gift out for members. It’s the black version and includes four ink tones and is compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, and TMP mesh bodies as well as any Omega compatible mesh body. There’s 9 group gifts out right now for members to grab, to make the 130L$ join fee more than reasonable.

I’m wearing the ‘Candice’ panties and top from Azuchi. I checked the main store and Market Place and didn’t see it anywhere, so I’m not sure if it’s available at this time.

The ‘Front Blow’ hair, blondes, is from the Editorial Hair gacha set from Tableau Vivant.

I’m wearing the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, which is now available at the current round of Appliquè. It looks gorgeous on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa, the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya and the kitten mesh feet from SLink.
