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.

What is There to Say?

What is There to Say?

I really hate profiles! In this day and age everything online has a profile to fill out, and I really don’t like that! If they gave me multiple choice I’d do better at it, but there’s all these blank spaces to add whatever the person wants to say, and I just have no idea what I want to say! My name…no problem there, I know who i am! But after that it gets a little hazy! I don’t even have to scroll down to get stuck for answers. The interests section is so deceiving because it’s asking a very basic question, but it’s not as easy as it looks! I start to write what I like in life, and as I start listing them, I look back and see that I am THE most boring person in this world! And predictable too, I mean, who doesn’t love animals, reading, and listening to music? So, I try to make it a little more interesting and start thinking….hmmm…yea….ummm….nothing interesting coming to mind, yet! Oh, wait, oh…..nope, thought I had one there, but no…..I think I’m just really boring. So, maybe I’ll settle for boring, but spice it up a little…..I love animals, reading, and listening to music, especially when I’m naked! 😛

I’m going to start off this fine Saturday with an outfit that’s on the Riot vendors at Sn@tch this week! The India Beaded Halter & Jeans is a mesh top that comes in nine colours and six sizes and the jeans are on system layers and Omega appliers. The jeans have ripped knees from falling down one too many times, while a little inebriated, but more on that later! So, if you’re not sure how a Riot vendor works, just drop in at the Sn@tch main store and have a look around. While there, join the VIP group so you can follow the chat and eventually a call goes out for a riot, everyone will show up and you can watch the prices drop! The group chat is fun, lively, and so helpful, too!

And now, some more on the inebriation! Le Poppycock has released a new gacha pose/prop set for Men Only Monthly and it’s time to go out on a bender! The set is called, ‘Under the Influence” and it’s full of poses, including a prop which is a big bottle, in varying degrees of tipsy, right up to the falling down drunk stage and beyond! What can I say, I love men’s poses! I like the pensive look, where I can look detached but completely aware of what’s going on around me, even when I’m drunk! MOM is on now and runs until February 15.

I love the dreamy Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins. I think this skin on the Alex mesh head from Logo looks about as close to the system me as possible! I’ve added a little shadow from the Solstice Shadow pack from Veechi. This set of nine shadows is available at the current round of The Seasons Story, which runs until January 31.

I’m convinced that no outfit is complete until work boots are added! My all time faves are the Bossy Boots from fashionably dead. They were a gacha at The Arcade a few years ago, but like work boots in real life, the good ones last forever!

Another older item that I can’t seem to stop wearing is the Boys & Girls 42 hair from Dura Hair!

I have a variety of items out strewn on the floor, but my favourite thing in this shot is the beautiful Maple Leaf flag of Canada from Seven Emporium.

Introverts Are People, Too!

Introverts Are People, Too!

So, if you are too tired to
speak, sit next to me,
because, I too, am fluent in
silence!

I know I’ve mentioned being an introvert in the past, but today I’m going to revisit the topic! I’ve been an introvert all my life, although i don’t think you just ‘become’ an introvert or extrovert, you’re born one or the other! So, in the early years of my life, back when there was no such thing as a home computer or google, I just lived my life, being different than almost everyone around me, and thought I was the weird one! I was the one who liked to stay at home with my family and animals, where I could be alone whenever I wanted. But, as I got older I realized that society expects a certain amount of socializing and if you aren’t doing enough…..then there’s something wrong. I think there’s still a stigma with being an introvert! Surely, it can’t be normal to want to be alone that much, people may think……. wrong!! When you’re system is depleted of energy from being around people, then nothing can recharge your system except peaceful time alone. When working in the service industry, I always came home after a shift and needed a couple hours before I could have a conversation with anyone and feel refreshed! I’m sure extroverts can’t relate to an introvert any better than the other way around. At this point in life I’m exceptionally lucky that my animals don’t require small talk, I always find peace with them! I can be outgoing and chatty, and even entertaining among people, but there is a price I pay. After, I’m mentally exhausted and need quiet and time alone. I’m glad I know and accept this about myself, because now when someone asks me out for coffee, I don’t feel guilty if I have other plans……like, celebrating my dog’s birthday, dusting my houseplants, organizing the breakfast cereal in my cupboard, or washing my hair!

I’ve put together a simple outfit to hang out at home in, on this Sunday morning! First off is the Bess Turtleneck Cropped Sweater, which is a new release from SN@TCH! It comes in handy right now with a warming trend here in my area, so I can shed the heavy coats for awhile! It has the super long sleeves and high neck while still baring a bit of midriff for a little bit of sexy! The top comes in an astounding 27 solids and patterns and in six sizes for mesh bodies.

And on my bare midriff is the Dare to Dream Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t! It’s a simple but pretty design that comes in system layers and appliers for the Omega and TMP compatible mesh bodies!

There’s no close up this time around, but the Zoie Sneakers are a pretty little shoe that’s worth a look at the Slipper Originals main store.

The Halsey Jeans from Vinyl are perfect for the weekend! They’re boot cut and have a boyfriend jeans type of fit, love ’em!

The Boys & Girls 70 hair is from Dura Hair! The hair and headband are both HUD driven for the colour options.

I’ve decided that the Alex mesh head is ‘me’ and I’m committed to it! I’m wearing the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins, which has such soft lips and a gentle look! I have added a little bit of eyeshadow from the Fall Essentials pack from alaskametro<3! I’m always wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the relaxed hands and flat feet from SLink.

The poses are from Overlow Poses, pack 86.

I love being at After the Fall! The sim is full of dark and destroyed areas, if you want that end of society look for your pictures!

Weapon of Choice

Weapon of Choice

“Tears aren’t a woman’s only weapon!”

~Cersei~ Game of Thrones

I don’t need to use tears as a weapon! I really don’t need any weapon at all, since I don’t like fighting and will normally do all I can to avoid it! I like to live in peace and harmony, where there’s no animosity between anyone, where there’s smiles, and laughter, and love….haha…..I’m not sure if that place even exists on earth! But, my entire body reacts when there is imminent turmoil around me, I get a huge burst of adrenaline and it’s time to decide….do I choose fight or flight! Well, it’s flight for me….unless completely cornered with nowhere left to go…..then watch out……it’s then that I cry! But not as a weapon…..I cry when I’m angry, sad, happy, depressed, or any other strong emotion, it’s just the way I am and I can do nothing about it! So if you think my tears are a weapon…..think again….it’s just means I’m feeling something!

When I saw the poses in the new Assassin pose set from HelaMiyo I wanted to add a weapon, and since I don’t have much in my inventory in the way of weapons, I went shopping. After searching in-world and on Market Place I decided that my kind of weapon is definitely a bat! I mean….it can do major damage, it’s a stress reliever when used, and I’m completely prepared if a baseball game breaks out! The Assassin pose set contains five warrior type poses with their mirrors and is available at the current round of Totally Top Shelf!

I found this great bat at Bamse and it’s one of the commons from the Stick XL gacha set of bats! Once I got the bat I wanted I couldn’t resist a few other gachas!! That’s so like me!

On closer look you’ll notice the very nice Arabesque tattoo from Sinful Curves Skins! It has three ink tones and is classic avatar, TMP, and Omega mesh body compatible. I’m also wearing the ALexa skin in honey tone, also from ScS! I’m jumping up and down excited to welcome them to my little list of featured designers, so you’ll be seeing lots of great skins, make up, and the like in the future!

To make me look a little bit dangerous….and a lot curvy…I’m wearing the complete UltraRare set from the Huntress gacha from FDD. It’s Maitreya compatible and consists of the boots, capris, leg bands, corset, and jacket, all in the old leather texture.

This pretty and feminine hair from Argrace is WAKANA and it’s a short, soft, and face framing style that is positively adorable!

I love this sneer from the Alex mesh head from Logo. It’s in the 3rd Expressions pack. I’m also wearing one casual hand and one relaxed hand from SLink, and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I was looking around the Bamse store completely enthralled with it’s furnishings, and after checking out who created all of these incredible things, it brought me to the Ex Machina main store. I found this area near a warehouse down a little back alley to make my stand, and take some pictures.
