Another Year Older

Another Year Older

It was my real life birthday this past week and not surprisingly I had to endure a rendition of Happy Birthday sung by my family! I will say it was better than usual, probably because I wasn’t singing!! There was a birthday cake which had candles on it for me to extinguish, and with my sister sitting across from me with the camera at the ready, I just pursed my lips ever so slightly so I’d look at least half decent in the shot! There’s nothing like having a picture taken with cheeks fully extended in mid blow, it’s not the most attractive of looks, but it’s family tradition!! We had lots of laughs and we all enjoyed the cake, of course! I can’t believe how fast birthdays come and go, I know having lots of birthdays is much better than the alternative, but do they have come and go in the blink of an eye? I can’t remember every birthday I’ve celebrated, they all kind of get mixed up in my head, if you’ve had as many birthdays as me, you’d forget them too!

It’s been a few days since my last post, and the time between posts has nothing to do with my birthday! I really struggled to get a picture that I was happy with. I think I’ve taken about 40, in three separate attempts and none of them really thrilled me. Out of frustration and passing time I settled on this one! My one worry is that my pictures all start looking the same, I don’t want that to happen, but when creativity is lacking it’s hard to avoid it! But anyway, here’s the info you’ve been waiting for, so patiently!

I always make a trip to all the men’s sales events, and I always find something that catches my eye! This time around it’s the ‘Feather Necklace’ from !NFINITY at Men Only Monthly, or MOM for short!. It comes in gold(seen here), silver, platinum, and black and each is HUD driven with two colour options for the cord. The detailing of it is incredible and with it scripted for easy resizing, I made it small enough for me, easily! I feel like a free spirit when I wear it! MOM runs until July 15.

The June round of Hair O Logy runs until June 30, so there’s still time to get the deals! I’m wearing ‘Vanessa’ from [KoKoLoReS], here and with the wispy tendrils around the face it’s so pretty! [KoKoLoReS] has a total of three styles at this round of Hair O Logy and all are 50% off for the duration! This is from HUD 01, which contains 30 colours!

I’m using a pose from the Solid Gold B set of poses from Le Poppycock.

I joined the Luxe Box group for the June round and Blueberry released the very pretty ‘Cutie Tops’. I forgot how fun Luxe Box is, all those goodies to open, it’s like Christmas in the summer!

The Malena Denim Shorts are from Addams! I could live in shorts all summer and with a pair like this, who wouldn’t want to?

You can see a bit of the ‘Les Fleur’ tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t. This is one of my faves!

I’m slowly getting used to seeing the ‘new me’ with the Catwa Lilo bento mesh head! I think I look a little angry sometimes, but I’m still the same ‘me’ inside! I’m wearing the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada(formerly known as Sinful Curves Skins). I’m wearing one of the nine selections of eye shadow from the ‘Monroe Shadow’ pack from Veechi. I’ve added the Catwa applier of the ‘Nissa Eyes’ from Zombie Suicide which are available at the current round of APPLIQUE. The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at my favourite spot at, Hazardous, for this shot!

I like to share lyrics that mean something to me, ones that I relate to and that make me feel a certain emotion. These lyrics? Not so much! They come from a time when deep and intense lyrics weren’t as common, but then again maybe whoever wrote them thought they were completely representative of their life at the time. *shrugs* Who knows! They lack depth and meaning, for me, but they’re catchy! I hadn’t heard this song until the movie ‘Stand By me’ came out, it was part of the soundtrack and it wasn’t long before I sang along to it whenever I heard it. It feels like yesterday that ‘Stand By Me’ was new, it’s such a wonderful movie and about the only one I like which is based on a story by Stephen King! But, sadly lots of time has passed since it was new, River Phoenix is gone, Corey Feldman has had lots of issues and never really became the actor I was expecting, Will Wheaton’s had a fairly good career, but I know him more for The Family Guy when Stewie pronounces his name like he says ‘cool whip’! That cracks me up! And of course, there’s Vern, played by Jerry O’Connell, who did very well for himself in later years. Kiefer Sutherland was the super cool, ‘Ace’, who had loads of bad boy charisma, and has been the most successful of the bunch! He’s always been the perfect bad guy in movies! I remember watching “Stand By Me’ and “The Lost Boys’ with my sister many times over the years. Of course, that also was a long time ago! Now it would make more sense for us to watch ‘The Golden Girls’, since we are a little bit older than we were then!! I think you’re perfect for Bea Arthur’s part, Gillian! 😀

I’ll start with the new releases from [KoKoLoReS] and featured at the April round of the Cosmetic Fair, which runs until April 30. The Naru hair with the star attachment(there’s a version without stars included) and the Starface mesh attachment are both exclusive to the event. This hair colour is from HUD 1 and the stars are HUD driven with four colour options. I love this cute bob style that frames the face nicely and isn’t all perfectly neat! I like the little touch of messy!

This lollipop and pose are part of the fatpack from the Silhouette Bento pose set from FOXCITY and available at the Pose Fair ’17. The fatpack includes seven poses, all really intricate and unique poses showing great use of the bento hands, which are the Maitreya bento hands here. The Pose Fair ’17 runs until the end of the month.

The gorgeous eye make up is one of the nine options from the Glitter Cut Crease Liner from Veechi! It’s Logo, Lelutka, and Catwa compatible.

My eyes are the Omega compatible Steampunk Eyes from .ARISE., this is the ‘Floor’ texture.

The Velvet Choker is from Eclat and available at the current round of uber.

You can just see the straps of the PoisPois Dress, white from Dead Dollz, and available at Bloom, Springtime Market and Gacha Grove.

I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with my all time favourite Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins, along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

One Day

One Day

One day, I’ll free myself of the constant worry I can’t seem to stop! One day, I’ll laugh when my normal reaction would be to cry! One day, I’ll look in the mirror and say to myself how pretty I am! One day, I’ll make a list of all of my positive traits and put them on the door of my fridge so I can always be reminded! One day, I’ll remember the painful parts of my past for only what they’ve taught me! One day, I’ll pamper myself, and not feel guilty! One day, I’ll cease to be anxious, and learn to just live in each moment! Maybe, ‘one day’ should be tomorrow!

Just some random thoughts on this windy evening on the Canadian prairies! I feel cozy when I can hear the wind howling through the trees, little tremors going through the house when the big gusts hit! First off, I want to remind everyone that The Pose Fair opens tomorrow! It’s one of my favourite events in Second Life and I was super excited to have early access for some nice quiet shopping! I’ll be showing off some of the exclusive poses you’ll find at the 2017 edition of The Pose Fair! Today, I’m using a pose from the Subtle Pack from HelaMiyo! The set contains five poses, and their mirrors and they’re unique, natural, and have a perfect subtlety about them! The Pose Fair starts April 14 at 12 pm SLT and ends April 29 11:50 SLT.

The Lily hair is a super cute style that’s perfect for an evening at home with a movie, or out shopping, or maybe just spending time with your significant other! It’s one of two exclusives from [KoKoLoReS] at the spring round of The Season’s Story. Lily is unrigged so it can be resized and moved for that perfect fit. This is from the Balayage HUD, which contains an unbelievable 30 colours! The Season’s Story runs until April 30.

I’m in deep thought while I stand on the deck enjoying the cool ocean breeze. It’s the perfect time to point out the Arcane Liner from Veechi. The set contains nine lovely colours and is compatible with the Catwa, Lelutka, and Logo mesh heads!

The spectacles that I’m wearing don’t detract anything from my pretty face!! 😀 These are the Lilla glasses in gold from Air. They come in gold or silver and there’s 3 sizes included.

The ‘Sweet Rose’ tattoo is from Nanika! this is the henna version, but it also comes in black or white. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, SLink, and Omega compatible mesh bodies.

I forced my way in to the April round of Collabor88, just to get my hands on this outfit from …Mutresse…! I had to have it! The Iaka Top and Hotpants are compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, and SLink mesh bodies, it’s HUD driven with loads of colours, both solids and prints, and it has lots of areas to customize it! I’d say this would be considered ‘smexy’ back in the day!!

The Starry Choker in leather is from Bokeh. and available on Market Place.

As always, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, bento hands included!

Deer in the Headlights

Deer in the Headlights

Today, I’m going to tell a story that goes back to my truck driving days! I’ve been a little bit melancholy lately and have been thinking about my years on the road. It’s a story that starts in Houston, Texas when I was parked in a truck stop overnight and my truck got hit while I slept. Needless to say I woke up and the matter got dealt with. The truck went in to a shop for body work to get it driveable for my trip back to Canada. I make it back and the truck goes in to get work fixed. I’m out and on the road again in a couple days, this time heading to California! I leave head office, happy to be back on the road and after a few hours I come to the Canada/US border. While parked there doing my paperwork, my truck is backed in to! A guy hauling cattle backed up and pushed my grill in pretty good. So, instead of continuing on to California, I’m to wait at the border for a truck coming north and we would trade trailers and I’d come back to head office, again for body work! I’d slept most of the afternoon while waiting for the other driver and when we switched trailers it was late evening, but I was on my way back north. About an hour in to the drive back, it’s fully dark now, I round a curve in the mountains and right in front of me is three elk crossing the road!! I jam on the breaks, but with a full load of canned tomato sauce in the trailer, there’s no chance of stopping! The first one makes it across the road, but I end up hitting the other two! It takes out both of my headlights immediately and I’m plunged in to darkness, but I get the truck pulled over on the tiny shoulder of the road and stopped! With my hazard lights flashing, I get out of the truck, crying of course(typical me!), and I’m met by a fellow truck driver who had been following me. He helped me out, leading me to a place where I could drop the trailer and then park at the truck stop for the night! So, it all turned out okay, I got back to head office and the truck back in for repairs, but after having three accidents in a week, I decided I needed a break!

I was looking at this picture, thinking about a story to go with it and with the bright light shining in my eyes, the title popped into my head. Then I sat for five minutes, recounting that period of time. I felt terrible about hitting the elk, I cry easily and believe me, I shed many tears for them on my trip back.

So, on a happier note, lets look at my attire, today! I’ll begin with the Jin hair from [KoKoLoReS], it’s one of my favourites, so anytime I think I need a bit of an attitude this is my hair of choice! This is from HUD 1, which contains 30 textures.

I was one of the lucky ones on the first day of uber! Why, you ask? I made it in to the new round of uber and man, did I have fun! I shopped with all the rabid uber fans, and got some very nice things! I could not resist the Swear Dita Denim Jeans from Lapointe & Bastchild Designs! They beckoned me! They’re compatible with the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies, plus the classic avatars! Then I take a trip over to their main store and see one of the group gifts is a HUD with more colours for the laces on these jeans! I was amazed to see the group is free to join, so I joined up and grabbed those laces, along with the other group gifts! uber is super difficult to get in to, but there’s a nearby sim to cam shop from!

Also at this round of uber! The Delia Bra, black is from [Azuchi]! I’m so thrilled with a leather bra, that I didn’t bother putting a top over it! 😛

I also grabbed the Adored Trainers from [Vale Koer], while I was at uber! The leathery goodness was just to much to pass up! I decided on the fatpack, with 13 areas to customize with 35 colours, how could I not get it? Now, to master the HUD!

The Layla Collar is with the Layla Dress from AGATA mode, and available at Kustom 9! I have the dress on in the previous post, if you want to have a look!

As always, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Vista Bento Hands from Vista Animations, and the high feet from SLink.

I’m using a pose from -slouch-poses, which is no longer available! I still get a little choked up when I think about it!

And, I’m in one of the buildings at the Hazardous sim! I spend time there, peacefully reflecting on life and listening to their music stream! It’s very peaceful!

Blog Post #598 (I can’t think of anything better)

Blog Post #598 (I can't think of anything better)

And now for something on the lighter side! With all the bad stuff that goes on in the world, a person can only take so much, so I thought today I’d look at something a little less serious than politics, hate, war, and famine! It wouldn’t take much to be a lighter topic than those!! So, since I listen to music most of the time, I thought it apt to have a look at some really odd names for songs! There’s all kinds of weird songs out there, some of them that have been around a long time, and I never thought anything odd about it until I said it out loud! I mean, who wants to tell everyone that, ‘I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts’? It doesn’t make sense, even in today’s world of euphemisms! That’s the song I first thought of to make me wonder about this topic! There’s not many genres of music I don’t like, so I’ve got a wide variety of music that I enjoy, depending on my mood of the moment. When I was thinking about odd song titles I did a quick search and found lots of lists, and as I went down the lists I realized that quite a few songs are country! I enjoy country music, mostly the older stuff, the new doesn’t even resemble country music, IMO, but some of the song titles may not make sense to some, but others may think it’s completely logical. Since I’m a farm girl, a song called ‘She Thinks My Tractors Sexy’ makes complete sense! Or, ‘Did I shave My Legs For This’ is a question I’m sure many women have asked themselves at some point in their life! If you’ve ever looked at a Bob Dylan album from the 60’s you’ll see lots of titles that don’t make a whole lot of sense, but I think there’s a logical explanation for that. I have no proof, but I would think some of them may have been written while under the influence of…um…..something other than true inspiration! Don’t think I’m picking on Bob Dylan, I’m not…I’m a huge fan! I have a lot of his CD’s and every now and then take one out to play. But, some of the song titles, and lyrics too if you listen for them, are down right odd! Case in point, ‘It takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry’, is one that makes me go ‘Hmm’, along with ‘Rainy Day Women #12 & 35’! I have to admit that naming anything is a tough thing to do, I know if you look back at my 597 blog posts, you’ll see some really lame titles! I understand the dilemma, after awhile it’s hard to think of a title that’s different than others, and actually makes sense to the readers! As I write this, I have yet to enter a name for this post, mainly because I can’t think of anything good!!

I always have mixed feelings when a new month starts! I look back at the past month and wonder where it went, but I look ahead to the new group gifts that will be released in the coming days! I’m a member of the [KoKoLoReS] VIP group, so I always look forward to the group gift released early in the new month. For March, the Manon Hair is the gift, and it comes with a HUD of six two-tone colours, all very different! I’ve fallen in love with this pink/grey combination! There’s a fee to join the VIP group, but it’s well worth it, with a new gift released every month, faithfully!

I’m sure everyone is trying to TP to the new round of Collabor88, I haven’t tried yet, I don’t have the patience for it! But, I can give you a look at the new release from Stories&Co. by Flowey, available at C88, when you can manage to get in! I’m wearing the Soft Bra & Briefs here and they’re so pretty! I’ve always been the girl next door, who loves the simple yet sexy look! Yes, simple can be sexy! They both come in ten colours, five basic and five soft spring tones!

My basic body consists of the Alex mesh head from Logo wearing the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins, the Lara Mesh body from Maitreya, the Vista Bento Hands from Vista Animations, and the Kitten feet from SLink.

I’m sitting on the Mid Century bed from Dutchie.

I’m using a pose from !bang poses.
