Carol G. Tattoo Wear

$*%@(&%!^ Typos

I am such a bad typist!! Oh, I know everyone has moments, but I seem to just automatically make the same typos over and over again. I’m not sure if anyone who chats with me in-world notices, but I get so frustrated when I see I’ve made the word ‘doing’ into ‘diong’ yet again! My fingers just won’t put the letters in the right order, for some reason! If there’s a wrong way to spell a word, I’ve done it, I just hope that whoever I’m chatting with speaks fluent ‘typonese’ and can decipher what I’m saying. The one good thing about typos is that when I spell a word wrong, that person is then assuming it’s a typo when in reality I just have no idea how to spell it. And with my lack of knowledge in current acronyms, I never know if the letters in someones message to me mean something or it’s a typo! It’s embarrassing really, but since I can acknowledge my own foibles, I don’t mind telling you all. I’m trusting everyone can completely relate to this. And really, if you tell me you can’t…..then I know you’re not being honest about your own typing skills, or lack thereof! I can usually understand what someone is saying without anything being spelled right. Unless it’s a complete mess, then I’ll have to ask for a repeat, and hope I get it then. My mistakes aren’t limited to chat in Second Life either, I’ve now written 249 characters here and I’ve had to make corrections to it 18 times! The scary part about bad spelling is that I seem to care less and then put less effort into correcting it. I used to reread my message and correct the problems, not anymore…..I hit send as soon as I’m done and hope for the best. There are times it can be embarrassing….like getting the ‘c’ and the ‘x’ mixed up. I told a friend the other day, ‘give me a sex’, meaning to just wait a second! Yea…there was much laughter. 🙂

I can’t believe how fast the month of March has passed. I logged in yesterday and realized it was the 25th and ~uber~ was open! So, off I go to find the Just BECAUSE booth to gift the newest release to my lovely sister! Since I am one of then luckiest girls in the world and blog for *JB*, I logged into Blogotex and snatched that baby right up! The ‘Daisy Top’ is so cute with delicate lace on each side, a finely detailed zipper, and a little bit of cheekiness with one side starting to slip! It’s fitted for the SLink, Belleza(Isis & Freya), and Maitreya mesh bodies and is HUD driven with the shirt, ruffle, zipper, and lace all being colour change. The fatpack contains 18 colours for the top and ruffle and 26 for the lace, there’s also 6 metal options. ~uber~ runs until April 23.

Thanks to Ana Poses, I have a new look for sipping my beverage of the Gods! The ‘Santiago’ pose set, available now at Shiny Shabby, includes 5 bento poses and coffee travel cup props.

The hair is ‘Bones’ one of my favourites from [KoKoLoReS]. It’s a colour from the ‘naturals’ pack.

As I often do, I’m wearing the ‘Just Love’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear. Simple yet powerful!

The ‘Infinity Necklace’ is from Cae-Original Mesh Jewelry.

As usual, 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.

I’m at Isle of May for this shot! It’s my new favourite place to be.

Where Have I Gone Wrong

‘Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, “Where have I gone wrong?” Then a voice says to me, “This is going to take more than one night.”‘

~Charlie Brown~ Peanuts[Charles Schulz]

I guess for me, this isn’t the question I’d ask the powers that be. I think it’s really cute that Charlie Brown asks it though, because how old is he? How far wrong could he have gone already? I’ve gone wrong at times in my life, no doubt! If I could change a few things, I would in a heartbeat, but would I be a different person or in a different place with a different life? I don’t know, I think everything that a person goes through is meant to get you to where you are at that moment. Like the guy in jail for robbing a liquour store can ask, ‘where did I go wrong’ but I think that answer is pretty obvious! I’m a believer that life will take me to where I’m meant to be, some decisions may be the wrong ones in regards to it being a positive or a negative experience, but it’s all meant to be like that. Looking back it’s really quite amazing to see the course of life and see all the dots that got connected to end up where I am. It’s just my thoughts…..you may feel the question, ‘where did I go wrong’ fitting and want an answer, but I just look at life and think it was all meant to be!

LEGAL INSANITY has a new release out for the Tres Chic event and the ‘Lily Tops’ are super cute and perfect for the coming spring and summer. They come in 10 colours, with 2 metal options, and each top has two styles, closed or open. Tres Chic runs until April 10.

The ‘Faith Hope Love’ tattoo is from Carol G Tattoo Wear. Another one of my faves that sends a peaceful and loving message. You can also find it on Market Place.

The ‘Carrie Denim Shorts’ in brown are from /erratic/. Note the cute little scarf tied to the belt loop, which is optional.

The ‘G1224’ 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.

This is pose 67 from .MILA..

I’m at the new to me sim, Isle of May! And I’m happy to say it’s a gorgeous replacement for hazardous, since it’s closing. I feel like I can relax and breathe here. Oh, and there’s all kinds of familiar names here, working hard on their own shots!

Hope Springs Eternal

Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never Is, but always To be blest.
The soul, uneasy, and confin’d from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.

‘An Essay on Man’ ~Alexander Pope~

This winter has seemed endless, but it’s actually passed in the blink of an eye! It’s still winter-like here, it’s Canada so spring doesn’t come easy, at least where I am, but the sun is shining and the high is supposed to be a balmy +1°C. How nice is that after the long cold spells we’ve had? It wasn’t any colder than lots of other winters, but each one has it’s own challenges. So far, we’ve only had a of couple major snowfalls but some fairly long periods of cold. The days are longer now and the sun has a bit of warmth to it, which gives me hope. It’s not like winter is hopeless, it’s not that bad, I just take it day by day and eventually I come out on the other side of it. This year I’m in a little bit of a panic with how close it is for spring work to begin, and I’m in no way ready for that! With only a couple weeks left in March, April is getting closer by the minute, and here I am writing a blog post, when I should be doing prep work for the coming spring! I keep putting it off, thinking I have lots of time, but if the next month goes as fast as the last one, I’m screwed! So, I guess I better get at it……..yea…..who am I kidding, there’s always tomorrow!

This is the first time taking pictures at Mystical Fae Forest, and I am so pleased with the outcome. I’m always saying how slow I am getting the shot I want, but for the first time in my blogging history, I got the shot in one take! Yes…this is the only picture I took of this outfit! Believe it….I’ve been having trouble believing it myself! 🙂

Anyway, I’m wearing the incredibly happy and spring like ‘Cary Dress’ from Just BECAUSE. It’s fitted for the Maitreya(Lara), SLink(Hourglass & Physique), and the Belleza(Isis & Freya) mesh bodies and comes in 26 colours or the fatpack which has 4 exclusive floral prints. The ribbon and panties are both colour change and the panties have an on/off toggle if you prefer to go commando! The ‘Cary Dress’ is available now at Collabor88, which runs until April 6.

The gorgeous ‘Daisies Tattoo’ is from Carol G Tattoo Wear. I don’t know about you, but there isn’t a release from Carol G that I don’t love, the detailing is incredible and they’re all so beautifully feminine! They’re compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, SLink, and TMP mesh bodies plus anything that’s Omega compatible.

I haven’t been a blonde in at least a couple years, but I’m trying to switch it up a bit. This is the VIP gift, ‘Tinsley’ from Truth Hair.

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 from Zombie Suicide. I’ve added one of the 15 colours from the ‘Tiana Eye Make-up’ set from Zibska.

This is one of the 10 poses from ‘Pack 90’ from Overlow Poses.

The Best Things in Life are Free

At least that’s what ‘they’ say! I get that, I really do, if one considers what’s really important in life the best things aren’t anything you go somewhere to buy. As far as I know laughs are free as are hugs, sleep, and good memories. As far as I’m concerned best friends are free, if they’re not…they’re not your friend. 🙂 But if you tend to think the best things in life are things that cost money, then you’re priorities are somewhat skewed! Unless you’re talking about chocolate, chocolate isn’t free, and it’s right up there in what’s good in life. Coffee……..coffee isn’t free, either. Unless of course someone treats you to a coffee, then it’s free and one of the best things in life. Music isn’t free, unless a person can sing a cappella, then it’s free. Since I can’t sing and I don’t play any sort of musical instrument, music isn’t free, but it is one of the best things in life. I like to keep life simple, enjoying the very basics of what is good in this world. I admit to enjoying my Second Life, which requires a computer and internet connection, but is it one of the best things in life? Maybe on some days, but I still enjoy sitting in the sunshine with a peaceful mind enjoying the very basics in life, like fresh air, soft breezes, and the stillness of my world.

Ok, I felt a little pressured to get this picture, and I finally got one I can live with, after numerous changes to my hair and top, different poses and angles, then to find a wind light was downright agony! But, here it is……and just in time! It’s the second weekend of the month(already) which means it’s Monthly Midnight Madness! And at Elle Boutique(formerly Slipper Originals) the store is abuzz with the upcoming round. Starting at midnight tonight……whether you call it Friday night or Saturday morning, Elle will make the MMM board active and the first 1500 people who tap the board will get the ‘Tabitha Earrings’, in silver and turquoise, with an add-on HUD available for a reasonable price to make it a full set.

Then at noon Saturday the board will be restocked and the ‘Deja Vintage Earrings’will become available to the first 1500 avis again, who touch the board. I’m wearing these earrings in my shot, in the free version colours. There will also be an add-on HUD to make it a full set. If you happen to miss out on either of these items, all is not lost. All day Sunday you can stop in at the main store and pick up the earrings, for a nominal fee and the add-on HUDs for the same reasonable price as before.

It’s an exciting weekend, you can find more information on Monthly Midnight Madness here.

I came across the ‘Chaeyoung’ hair in my inventory, having forgotten I even had it. It’s from [monso].

The ‘Free to Love’ tattoo is from Carol G Tattoo Wear.

My look all begins with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added a bit of eye shadow from the ‘Tiana Eye makeup’ set from Zibska. You can’t see much of it, but I know it’s there. 🙂

The pose is from the ‘Loose Ends’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.

If I Didn't Have

Every day I should be asking myself what life would be like if I didn’t have something that I take for granted. What if I didn’t have my freedom and independence? What if my health were to fail to the point where I can’t leave my home and need assistance with daily life? How would I cope with that? It’s one thing to not want to leave home, but it’s entirely different when you physically can’t My freedom is something I take for granted. What if I didn’t have my family? They are my rock, who I turn to when I need someone to make things seem better, and who I can laugh with in complete comfort to be who I am. I take them for granted sometimes, although as we all get older it’s in my mind more than ever, having a life without them. What would my life be like if I didn’t have the home I have. I’m fourth generation on the family farm, and although there’s been many hard times here over the years, it’s still where I find comfort. I can’t live in a city, I know that, so I’m so fortunate to be able to live here, with few worries. What if I didn’t have the past that I do? I know there’s no point in saying ‘what if’ in life, but there are times I wonder what would’ve happened if I’d made different decisions, would I be better or worse off? I don’t think about it much, except to say that I take for granted the life I’ve lived, to end up where I am today. Every part of my life has all brought me to this one moment in time, right now, and I couldn’t be happier.

I’m standing on Route 66 at Mother Road , home of the Mirage Motel 66, and I’m in deep thought. If you see me not paying attention like this at any time, please have mercy and not run over me! I’m wearing the fun and perky ‘Ace Sport Set’ in pink, from Dead Dollz. It’s excluvely for the Maitreya ‘Lara’ mesh body and fits perfectly!

I’ve added the ‘Urban Fitness Player’ and the ‘Usagi Trainers’ both from [Vale Koer].

The ‘SLife Fitness Band’ is from Anachron. I think it wants to call me lazy for not walking enough! 🙂

The tattoo is the ‘Queen Tattoo’ in black and at 50% opacity from Carol G Tattoo Wear.

This is the NO.SHELTER hair from NO.MATCH.

As always, my skin is ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from the ‘Travelogue’ set from oOo Studio Poses.
