The Last Picture Show

The Last Picture Show

I haven’t been to a movie in years, and the last time I went I had no control over the movie we saw! I mean, I’d never seen any of the ‘Sex and the City’ shows, I only had an idea of who the characters were, but there I was sitting in the theater, with two avid SATC viewers, and me in shock from having paid a small fortune on a drink and popcorn! I used to enjoy going to a movie now and then, I saw many of them back in the day. But, now with my complete contentment staying home with my own popcorn and my choice of what to watch, I have no urge to see one in a theater. At home I don’t have someone bumping the back of my chair, I may have some clutter in my house, but my shoe isn’t stuck in an unknown substance under my foot, and at home I don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for a little carton of popcorn and a paper cup of watered down pop. Yea, my days of going to a theater to see a movie may be pretty much over, but that’s not a bad thing! By staying home with a DVD I don’t have to drive home after, if I fall asleep during the movie no one has to nudge me awake when the lights come on and if I don’t like the movie I just saw, I have no one to blame except myself!

For this picture I made a visit to the newly opened The Last Forever sim, and I enjoyed wandering around exploring while I was there. My first stop was at the ‘Palace Movie Theater’ from KraftWork! This building is available now at the current round of Draftsman, and it’s a nicely detailed and functional build! There’s two versions of the building in the pack, one is no modify and the other fully modifiable so you can personalize it any way you like. The movie screen in the mod version can be removed so you can add your own video viewing device. The seating area is really big with fully animated seating, and best of all, there’s no sticky spots on the floor!! Draftsman runs until May 17.

I searched through my extensive Le Poppycock folder and finally found what I was looking for! This pose and prop is from the ‘Idle Fancies’ gacha set and available at the Le Poppycock main store!

I LOVE the Swear Dita Denim Jeans from Lapointe & Bastchild! The detailing is exquisite, the textures perfectly life like, and the fit is curve hugging perfection! I love that the only option to purchase with L&B is the fatpack! I don’t have to struggle with that decision and I know that whatever I’m buying, the fit is perfect and the it’s going to be one of the go-to pieces in my wardrobe!

The Jinx Satin Top is from Rebel Gal and available now at The Epiphany! I love gacha fairs, and The Epiphany is a great one, but all the unboxing drives me crazy! I feel like the item is in a little Russian doll that always has a smaller one inside, and it’s never going to end! But, so worth the effort when the item is finally revealed and I can ooh and aah at it’s beauty! 😀

Also from The Epiphany is the Lariat Necklace 12 from etham. I like it’s simplicity and minimalistic look!

The Arwen hair is from Mina Hair.

And as a always, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Alexa skin in honey tome from Sinful Curves Skins. I’ve added one of the nine options from the Mag Shadows eye shadow pack from Veechi to highlight my eyes a bit. I’m wearing the Lara mesh body, including bento hands, from Maitreya.

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!

Thoughts From an Introvert

Thoughts From an Introvert

I’m an introvert, and I’ve learned a lot about it by following a few Facebook users that share their thoughts about life as an introvert! I saw a post today, in cartoon form, of an astronaut sitting on a rock on the moon, alone of course! The astronaut is in deep thought and then asks, ‘Am I lonely? Or really really happy? I can never be sure!’. I love that! I’ve thought about loneliness and have to admit that there are times that I am lonely. But, the thought of being more social or having more friends is something that just doesn’t appeal to me! I don’t want to socialize more! I hardly socialize now, and I don’t like it when I do. So, why would I need more people in my life? And the thought of living with someone completely terrifies me! In my home, alone, is where I’m truly comfortable, I can’t risk losing this! So how does an introvert, who’s sometimes lonely, deal with this? The idea of being ‘alone together’ is something I could live with! Separate homes, to escape to when alone time is needed, but spending time together and enjoying life as a couple, would be perfect! Oh, and the other person has to be an introvert too! I just can’t live like an extrovert, and survive! I always thought that there’s something wrong with me, not wanting to be around people, and preferring to spend time with my animals. But, there’s nothing wrong with me, I don’t need to learn to be more social, or to just ‘get over it’! I’m me, I’m an introvert, proudly!

I’m in my happy place here, laying in bed, not asleep, but just in deep thought. And while I do enjoy this, there are times that I venture out for some much needed retail therapy! I do enjoy shopping, in real life as well as Second Life, but in real life I need the self check outs, chatting with the cashier is something I just don’t like doing! So, shopping in Second Life is perfect for me! I can do it without talking with anyone, and I don’t have to bag it myself! 🙂 If you’re in need of some retail therapy of your own, I completely recommend Shoetopia! Some of the best shoe makers in Second Life are all in one place, with new and exclusive releases! I’m wearing the Alba Wedge from NX-Nardcotix, here and they’re positively gorgeous! The delicate straps and mid height heel are perfect for the upcoming summer season, or you can get sexy in them, like I am here. They fit the mid foot from SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza and come in eight colours. Shoetopia runs until April 15.

I don’t normally shop for skins, I’m completely dedicated to Sinful Curves Skins, but I did take a bit of time to visit the Skin Fair 2017, on the last day, mind you! I fell in love with the Sweet Rose Tattoo, henna from Nanika! It’s compatible with Omega, and also the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies.

The Selene panties and bra are from Violent Seduction. They were part of a gacha from a previous round of The Epiphany.

The WAKANA hair is from Argrace.

My complete look starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo wearing the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the mid feet and Dynamic hands from SLink.

This pose is from the ‘Footnote’ set of poses for women from Le Poppycock.

I’m laying on the Mid Century Bed from Dutchie.

Free Bird

Free Bird

When I’m struggling to find something to write about for a blog post I like to get on YouTube and watch a few vintage videos and listen to some great music that delivers me back to another time and place! I came across this video and as I watched it I felt like I was there, on that early July day in Oakland, California in 1977, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s on stage and they’re about to do ‘Free Bird’. There’s just something about this one that makes me long for something, I’m not even sure what, since I was pretty young when this was filmed! I probably didn’t even know what a ‘Lynyrd Skynyrd’ was back then, but at this point in my life, this video takes me back. It doesn’t make me want to go back to that time in my life, the last thing I’d ever want is to have to go through my teenage years and twenties again! Maybe it makes me wish my life was different at that time. This was filmed almost 40 years ago, hard to believe really! I don’t know how that many years can go by, but still feel like it was yesterday!

I’ll admit that I do struggle with a fantasy themed photo. I love all the fantasy items in Second Life, and I know that the term ‘fantasy’ can mean whatever I want to interpret it as, but I find it so hard! When I put these beautiful Bento Fairy Wings from lassitude & ennui on, I almost felt fairy-like in them. They have lovely detail and come in six gorgeous colours, each colour has gold and silver trim. The animation runs automatically, but you do need the bento compatible viewer, which Firestorm and the official Second Life viewer both are. These are available at the current round of We Love RolePlay, which runs until the end of the month.

You can only see the top of the cute M105 hair from .:CHEVEUX:., here, but it’s a short windswept style that looks so cute! It’s available at the current round of SaNaRaE, which runs until March 18.

The Colette Thong in ivory is from /erratic/.

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, and the mesh feet and Bento mesh hands from SLink.

This lovely pose is one of the three poses in the ‘falling’ pack from Serendipity.
