Addams

Gaze Long Into the Abyss

I’ve just spent 45 minutes trying to make sense of Friedrich Nietzsche and I can now report that that is not enough time! I was going to write something meaningful and profound, but while doing some research on the ‘staring into the abyss’ quote, I realized that there’s no way I can come close to saying anything that wouldn’t make me look like a complete idiot. I do have an open mind, and am will to try form thoughts about how I interpret things, but this is ‘waaaay out there for me’! It’s not that I don’t get the very basic meaning……but to actually write about it, is a whole other thing. You know the saying, ‘it’s better stay silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt’? Yea…that was meant for me….and I know when to keep quiet!

I’m always drawn to poses of sadness, so the newest set of poses and props from Le Poppycock are perfect for me! The ‘Heartache A & B’ pose sets are all gut wrenching in their emotion and you’ll probably be seeing each and every one of them here, eventually! This one is called ‘Secret Sorrow’ and includes the rose with falling petals. This set is perfect for anyone that feels alone during this time of year. With everyone throwing their love and romance at you, when all you want to do is put on your jammies and watch a good movie while eating a pint of ice cream straight from the container! The ‘Heartache’ sets contain six poses each, with rose props and are available now at The Chapter Four.

I’m wearing the newest release from DURA Hair here. It’s the ‘Boys & Girls 82’ and available now at The Men’s Department.

The ‘Betina Tank Top’ is from Addams.

I made it over to the flash sale at Blueberry last week and grabbed the ‘Kimi Skirt’, among other things.

The look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa, the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya, and the kitten feet from SLink.

I found the incredible Neverfar sim. Joining the group does give rez rights, but worth every penny.

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

And the reason for that is……what I’m looking for keeps changing! In the course of a lifetime there’s no way someone can finally find what they’re looking for and then stay right there. It’s so easy for life to become stagnant when a person thinks they’ve found exactly what they want, and then remain in one place for the rest of their life. It’s great to find what you’re looking for, but never give up on new things to find! If you’ve found the job you’ve always wanted…perfect….but you can’t just be happy with having it, you have to continue to find fulfillment in it. You’ve found the partner you’ve always dreamed of, that’s great too. But, the work in finding the right person is tiny compared to what it takes to keep the relationship strong. Now that you’re not alone, it becomes the two of you who still haven’t found what you’re looking for. But, if the goals and dreams are shared, it’s much more fun to enjoy the trip with someone. Over the course of life many goals and dreams are searched for, but it’s OK to change your goals, to decide that maybe what you wanted isn’t what you really need in your life. A person learns some hard lessons trying to find what they’re looking for, but no matter the outcome, never give up searching, because there’s always something worth finding.

I can’t believe it’s already December! The time is marching on at very rapid rate and it’s kind of scary. every day behind me is one less ahead of me, how’s that for a happy thought! But, we can’t stop it so we may as well accept it and enjoy each minute as it happens. One thing to get excited about with the end of one month and the beginning of another is all the events that start new, on the first of the month. FaMESHed is one such event and this month [BAD HAIR DAY] is in on the action! The ‘Bousni’ hair is a women’s only style with beautiful lines that really frame the face nicely. It’s swept back on the opposite ear that I’m showing, I’m always a sucker for the mysterious look! As you probably know, the [BAD] colour palette is huge and each hair has two layers to colour indepentently for lots of colour options. Each colour pack contains 24 textures, so when you add the two layers there’s an incomprehensible number of options with which to play with. You will find a colour combination that works for you! This festive round of FaMESHed runs until December 27.

I know real life is screaming ‘winter’ at me, but in Second Life I still can’t resist wearing clothing that’s a little short on coverage! The ‘Mellon Long Sleeved Shirt’ from Addams is a top that covers what needs to be, but still shows enough to be sexy! A bare midriff is always in style!

The ‘Batra and Leok’ tattoo from Isuka is simply gorgeous. The details are amazing and with 3 ink tones it looks great on any skin tone.

You can’t see much bare skin here, but it’s the beautiful ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada. It’s at the current round of APPLIQUÈ, right up until December 7, after that it will be at the mainstore. I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya, as always!

This is a men’s pose called ‘Avoid Me’ from Del May.

The Book I'll Never Write

Only after swirling down into oblivion, to finally hit the very bottom, did I realize how long and arduous the trip down was. I’d been hurtling through a wasteland called my life, longing to find happiness but not knowing what ‘happiness’ even looked like. How does one ‘find’ happiness? I thought if I was prettier, or thinner, or smarter then I’d find that little piece of heaven called happiness. Sure, I had times that I was very convincing in acting happy. I smiled and laughed and I could be the life of the party but it would take every once of mental energy I had to get through any kind of social setting. After, I’d go home, bury my face in a pillow and cry myself to sleep. How many nights did I do that….I have no idea….it was during those times that I knew deep down that, 1)I couldn’t go on like this, and 2)I knew I didn’t want to. Thankfully, I had no idea how much longer I’d be living in this inner hell. If I’d known, it would have been the end of me.

I’m sure if I was to write a book it would start something like that. It wouldn’t be a story to take on vacation for some reading while on the beach. No, my book would be one that you’d make a cup of tea and sit under a dim lamp reading long into the night. It would leave you unsettled but you’d want to find out what happens. At this point I’d like to know what happens next! πŸ˜€

Anyway, here’s all the info that’s fit to write! Starting with a new release from [BAD HAIR DAY]! YAY…I love new releases at the best of times and when it’s hair it’s extra exciting! So, [BAD] has released the ‘Krayr’ hair, it’s unisex and unrigged, which makes it perfect for me! If you haven’t checked out [BAD]’s colour palette I urge you to. It’s huge and each hair has two layers to colour independently which results in some fantastic combinations. Each colour pack has 24 textures, so once you start mixing and matching the layers theres a huge amount of options. As usual I couldn’t resist the Blacks and Whites pack.

The rest of me is a very good look at my back, so there’s not great detail, but you can see a bit of each item. My top is the Hara VNeck Top from Addams. I have the fatpack, which is HUGE and then went with the white, which goes with everything.

you can only see the back of the ‘Sequoia Necklace, short from EMPYREAN FORGE, unfortunately, but it’s part of a cute set of necklaces which is at the current round of FaMESHeD. The three part set is sold separately and includes long, medium, and short and they’re HUD driven with a nice colour selection.

I know…it’s only the waistband you can see of the ‘Jane Boyfriend’ Jeans from !APHORISM!. They’re also at FaMESHeD, they come in six regular and six worn textures, and the fatpack includes all twelve colours, optional belt, and a cuff option.

I’m using the ‘shaved long’ hair base from Dura Hair.

Today I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I found this pose among a large pose set from CARNIOLA Poses on Market Place. It’s from the ‘Autumn Model Set’ and it includes 14 poses plus their mirrors and also pose balls.

I made a visit to Hazardous for this picture. I haven’t been there in awhile and it was very calming to my soul! πŸ˜€

What's Liz Doing?

It’s the middle of the day and Liz is leaving a motel room! She’s wearing a mini skirt, tank top, and heels, and isn’t smiling at all! What’s Liz been up to?

a.) she got a job delivering pizza

b.) her house is being fumigated and she’s living in a motel room for a week

c.) she was helping a guy with his taxes

d.) she’s rushing to get home so no one notices she was gone all night

e.) none of the above

As well as you know Liz, after almost 3 years and just about 700 posts blogging, what do you think is the most probable scenario here! πŸ˜€

To start off, lets talk about the pose! It’s from the ‘Fruit Juice A & B’ sets of poses from Le Poppycock and available at The Chapter Four. Each set has six natural, original, and relaxed poses all perfect for your pictures! I’ve been blogging poses from Le Poppycock for as long as I’ve been blogging and I’m always amazed at how natural and versatile they are. When I’m in doubt of what pose to use, Le Poppycock is my go to pose maker. The Chapter Four runs until the end of the month.

The Mesh Body Addicts Fair 2017 is on and it’s one of the most anticipated events of the the year. All the big names are there with their new releases and it’s one of my favourites! LEGAL INSANITY has the ‘Chloe Mini Skirts’ exclusive to the event this year and it’s super high hemline and built in panties make it a must have! It’s HUD driven with 15 colours and patterns with an additional five colours included when you purchase the fatpack. Also exclusive to the fatpack is the mix and match panties option. With the shortness of this skirt going commando isn’t an option, but you can mix and match the panties with the skirt! πŸ˜€ The Mesh Body Addicts Fair 2017 runs until August 21.

The Birthday round of Collabor88 has begun and with all the guest designers participating it’s super busy and very difficult to get in to. Ingenue has the ‘Stella Heels’ exclusive to C88, they’re SLink and Maitreya(high feet) compatible and come in an even dozen colours. I like the little peep toe and the bow at the ankle which really elongates the legs. I’m wearing the ‘Toffee’ pair for the SLink high feet. Collabor88 has just begun so I wish everyone luck in getting in for the incredible shopping at this early date! πŸ˜€

The ‘Betina Tank’ from Addams is one of my faves. It’s HUD driven with a bazillion colours and the border and laces can be coloured independently from the top and the laces also have a loose or knot option.

Also at the C88 Birthday round is the ‘Blair’ hair from [DUE]. It’s HUD driven, including a styling HUD with plenty of options to make it a little bit different every time you wear it. I love it’s short perky look.

And as usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada! I think you must know how much I love this look! ‘Luna” is on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’m also wearing the high feet from SLink.

I’m always on the lookout for new areas to take pictures, so when I saw Mother Road at the ‘Ludington’ sim, I was in love! I love the desert, so this ” lovingly crafted Nevada-esque back country, inspired by the original Mother Road sim” is one that I know will become a favourite for me. I know I’m not showing anything but the Mirage Motel 66, which is situated alongside the ‘Mother Road’, but there’s lots of areas to take pics to your hearts content! Paul Cutter, the owner of this fine establishment, is very welcoming and approachable, so it’s a nice comfortable atmosphere to stay as you long as you need to, to get the right shot! Which for me can sometimes take ‘awhile’! πŸ˜€

Happiness is.....

….cancelled coffee plans! Nothing feels as freeing as having made plans to meet someone for coffee and when that day arrives they have to postpone it! It’s like my life opens up before me and I now have a whole afternoon to do with as I want! It’s not like I didn’t want to have coffee with this person, I actually always enjoy our time together, but the one thing I always yearn to do is be at home! And preferably with few people around! Hey…I’m an introvert….what can I say! πŸ˜€ A new day and time for coffee hasn’t been set yet, so there will be a different day that I’ll go for coffee with this friend, and that’s fine, but today I have the afternoon free and nothing planned, or should I say ‘nothing is my plan’!

I can’t believe the first week of July is already over and with that a new round of The Chapter Four is in full swing! Le Poppycock has the ‘Strawberry Sky’ A & B pose packs exclusive to TCF! Each pack contains six poses with lots of activity for a busy summer! This is the ‘Imagining Pink’ pose and I look like I could be singing ‘The hills are alive with the sound of music’, but I’m actually just enjoying my time at one of my favourite sims, Hazardous!

I’m wearing the ‘Mila’ hair from [KoKoLoReS] for this shot! It’s available until July 16 at the Hair Fair 2017. I love the angles and edginess of [KoKoLoReS] hair, it always stands out in a crowd!

I made a visit to the Addams main store to grab this new release! The ‘Mellon Long Sleeves Shirt’ does have long sleeves, but very little else! I love it! Addams is celebrating 3 years in business all during the month of July, so stop in a find the red balloons for incredible savings on fatpacks! Also from Addams, is the ‘Malena Denim Shorts, high rise’.

You can only see a bit of the ‘Feather Necklace’ from !nfinity here! You can get a better view of it in this previous blog post! It’s available now at the Men Only Monthly event.

I’m wearing the ‘Just Love’ group gift from Carol G. Tattoo Wear, you can just see a bit of it beside the necklace! There’s a fee to join the group, but there’s six very nice group gift tattoos out right now, and new ones regularly!

The rest of me is the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada! Along with the Lara mesh body, with bento hands, from Maitreya and the kitten feet from SLink.
