How do you cool your lips, after a summer’s kiss?
How do you rid the sweat, after the body bliss?
How do you turn your eyes, from the romantic glare?
How do you block the sound of a voice
You’d know anywhere?

Oh, I really should’ve known
By the time you drove me home
By the vagueness in your eyes, your casual goodbyes
By the chill in your embrace
The expression on your face that told me
Maybe you might have some advice to give
On how to be insensitive

How do you numb your skin, after the warmest touch?
How do you slow your blood, after the body rush?
How do you free your soul, after you’ve found a friend?
How do you teach your heart it’s a crime to fall in love again?

Oh, you probably won’t remember me
It’s probably ancient history
I’m one of the chosen few
Who went ahead and fell for you
I’m out of vogue, I’m out of touch
I fell too fast, I feel too much
I thought that you might have some advice to give
On how to be insensitive

Oh, I really should’ve known
By the time you drove me home
By the vagueness in your eyes, your casual goodbyes
By the chill in your embrace
The expression on your face that told me
Maybe you might have some advice to give
On how to be insensitive

Insensitive‘ ~Jann Arden~

I’m so excited to welcome Shadow’s Poses to my little family of featured designers! I’ve been following Lou on flickr for some time and I’m always amazed at her super sultry and sexy looks. I know I won’t be as mysteriously steamy and sensual as Lou herself, but I’m going to put my own spin on her poses and hope I can do them justice! I’m starting out fairly innocent enough……I mean…what’s more innocent than a little pink teddy bear? Have I ever mentioned I had a teddy bear when I was a little kid? I did….it was pink and the fur had all matted from overuse and over washing, I loved that little guy so much! Well, Lou has included this little guy to go with the ‘Babydoll’ pose. Included in the pack is a pose ball, the animation and the teddy bear so you can head to bed with your little teddy bear, too.

I’ve wearing the ‘Galera’ lingerie set from Addams here. It’s all lacy and pretty to make me feel super feminine!

The ‘M103’ hair is from CHEVEUX.

I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the options in the ‘Shoreline’ set of eye shadows from War Paint.

Profile Perv’n 2.0

Profile Perv'n 2.0

This is an update to a story I brought you earlier in the week! I’ve had it pointed out to me that I’d missed a couple topics that are popular in Second Life profiles that we all love to read. The space is there to use as one wants, there’s no rules, just say what you want to say. So, when thinking of popular topics I’d completely forgotten the ‘Family ‘profile. The one whose ‘picks’ are all their relatives in Second Life. I have nothing against this at all, only in Second Life can you pick your family!! Unlike real life where you’re stuck with whoever you’re born with and most of the time wouldn’t want to advertise to anyone who your family is. The family profiles usually have about 3 mothers, 10 sisters, and that one crazy brother..don’t forgot the crazy brother. There might be an uncle or two and of course nieces and nephews. I’ve not gathered any family members at this point, well….except for my sister, who really is my sister! And speaking of the beautiful Gillian Galicia, since my last blog post on this topic she has changed her picks to include me in a mesh version. Of all the pictures she could have picked, she showed much restraint and used one that’s fun. Thankfully! Oh, then there’s the angry profile……….the one with all the rules of what to say or not to say to this person, warnings of not to mess with them or their loved ones, and generally not making them approachable at all! Maybe that’s what they really want, no one to talk to them, but it might be easier to just leave the whole thing blank, because living with all that pent up anger must be difficult! I’ve done a bit of a revamp to my profile, so if you see me in-world I have some thought provoking quotes to read and plan to add to it as needed, because life doesn’t stand still for anyone! Just remember, that I try not to take myself too seriously, because life’s way to short for that!

I think I have a bit of an attitude here, I’ve been trying to fight off the late winter doldrums, and it’s not been easy. I’m wearing the ‘Nova Hand Chains’ from Elle Boutique(formerly Slipper Originals) here, and they’ve got a little bit of boho goin’ on! The chain wraps around the wrist then trails down to encircle the index finger, with a moon, beads, and stones along the way. They’re fitted for the SLink and Maitreya bento hands, are HUD driven with 7 metals, 10 stones and beads, and materials enabled for extra shine! These are available at the current round of 4Mesh, which I’m sorry to say is the final round, with this event coming to an end. It runs until April 11, so there’s still time to get all the goodies!

The newest release from RK Poses is one I just could not resist! It’s the ‘Katyusha Elegant Armchair’ and it’s rich textures and perfect poses make it a must have. It comes in a version with singles animations for seating and also a version with a really relaxed couples pose. Each purchase includes a gift of ‘Porcelain Cups’ from Nutmeg! The chair is available at the current round of Shiny Shabby.

I’m wearing the ‘Joelle Lingerie’ from Addams.

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. My eyes are from the ‘Nissa’ set of eyes from Zombie Suicide and I’ve added a bit of eye shadow from the ‘Tiana’ eye make up set from Zibska, which was part of a previous Powder Pack box.

I know this chair is loaded with great animations, but I went for a more serene look here with the ‘Be Here Now(mirror)’ pose from BadWolf Poses.

Gaze Long Into the Abyss

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

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

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! 😀

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! 😀
