Someone Say Cupcake?

Someone Say Cupcake?

Hold it now and watch the hoodwink
As I make you stop, think
You’ll think you’re looking at Aquaman
I summon fish to the dish, although I like the Chalet Swiss
I like the sushi
‘Cause it’s never touched a frying pan
Hot like wasabi when I bust rhymes
Big like LeAnn Rimes
Because I’m all about value
Bert Kaempfert’s got the mad hits
You try to match wits, you try to hold me but I bust through
Gonna make a break and take a fake
I’d like a stinking aching shake
I like vanilla, it’s the finest of the flavours
Gotta see the show, ’cause then you’ll know
That vertigo is gonna grow
‘Cause it’s so dangerous
You’ll have to sign a waiver

One Week‘ ~Barenaked Ladies~ (Lyrics)

So, the song is there for you to listen to, with a link to click on so you can sing along, try if you will! It’s not for the feint of heart, so keep up if you can! This picture won’t mean anything to anyone, except one! Oh…she knows who she is….all she has to do is see the chair, the cupcake and this pose and she’ll know! I’ll ask her, like I always do when we laugh about this scene….’Do you think I can’t see you?’! So needless to say, there’s a story that goes with this, but all I’ll say is that if one touches the cupcake, which is from the ‘Cupcake Plate’ gacha set from Anachron, you’ll receive a cupcake to eat. If you happen to add that cupcake while sitting in this chair, one of the funniest animations occurs. Maybe it’s just us, I’m not sure, but we still laugh about this and it happened a year and a half ago!! The ‘delilah’ chair in pink is from the Springtime gacha set from dust bunny.

I’m wearing the ‘ERIKA’ heels from *UTOPIA DESIGNS*, which I’ve barely taken off at all since I got them!

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram.

As usual, 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.

Enjoy your Sunday, everyone, someone say cupcake? 😀

Shine

Shine

Give me a word – give me a sign
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)
Lay me on the ground and fly me in the sky
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)

Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down

Love is in the water – love is in the air
Show me where to look – tell me will love be there? (Will love be there?)
Teach me how to speak – teach me how to share
Teach me where to go – tell me will love be there? (Will love be there?)

Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down

Give me a word – give me a sign
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)
Lay me on the ground and fly me in the sky
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)

Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down

I’m gonna let it shine – I’m gonna let it shine
Heaven, let your light shine on me
Oh, yeah
Heaven, let your light shine on me

I think it’s about time I share a more hopeful and positive song, because nothing is so terrible that one can be devoid of all hope. Really, it’s still cold outside and it’s snowing a little bit, but who cares! I’m officially behind in my spring work because of this weather, but you know what, I don’t care! My heart remains heavy from the weekend events with so many lives lost, but the world continues to turn and the sun will set tonight and rise again tomorrow, because life does go on. When I say that there’s hope and that life is precious, I’m saying it from a state of mind that knows this, deep down inside. It’s a healthy mental state that can accept things that happen in life and keep going, and although I have many ups and downs sometimes all in one day, I’m firmly and completely confident in the thought that life is always worth living, no matter what! I’ve lost loved ones in the past and thought I’d never survive, but I did….I will lose loved ones in the future and I will survive that too, the only thing to do is to accept it and never waste a second of it. At one time in my life I couldn’t bare to take another breath and I didn’t want to face another second, so I know what it’s like to be at the bottom with no hope. But there is hope, one just needs to reach out in any way possible to get help. I got the help I needed….it didn’t make me weak or less of a person, it just meant I couldn’t do it alone. So today I breathe deeply, knowing all I’ve got is right now, and that’s OK!

It’s the 2nd anniversary round of the Bodyfy event, and Wild Roots is celebrating with 2 new releases, plus this gift! The ‘Smoke’ tattoo is a gorgeous unisex sleeve tattoo with a highly detailed and intricate design that replicates smooth smoke rising. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP mesh bodies plus anything that’s Omega compatible. There’s also tattoo layers for the classic avatars. It includes 3 ink tones too, this is the medium. The skin sacrifice will continue until April 24.

The ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ is from [Vale Koer].

The ‘Arwen’ hair is from MINA Hair.

I’m wearing the ‘Raine gen.2’ skin in tone 210 from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I know there’s no detail in texturing in a black and white photo, but I want to add that the gen 2 skins from Avada are incredible, with ‘Raine gen 2’ being available now at The Makeover Room.

This pose is one of the 8 poses in the ‘Behind’ set from .Ininiti..

I’m in front of the ‘Mid Century Bed’ from Dutchie. The house plant is from Dust Bunny.

What Hurts the Most

What Hurts the Most

I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house
That don’t bother me
I can take a few tears now and then and just let them out
I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though going on with you gone still upsets me
There are days every now and again I pretend I’m ok
But that is not what gets me

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away

And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do

It’s hard to deal with the pain of losing you everywhere I go
But I’m doin’ it
It’s hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I’m alone
Still harder, getting up, getting dressed, living with this regret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade, give away all the words that I saved in my heart
That I left unspoken

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away

And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do

I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though going on with you gone still upsets me
There are days every now and again I pretend I’m ok
But that’s not what gets me

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away

What Hurts the Most‘ ~Aaron Lewis~ written by Jeffrey Steele

Ok, so this has been a week of songs, and I have to say I’ve enjoyed matching a song to my mood and picture for each post. I’d like to continue to do that, but I’ll also continue writing, some days more than others. Oh, I still have thoughts and opinions, but there are times that I find it hard to put more than 3 words together and still make sense, so having a song do some of my talking for me is really quite a relief, but you guys have to promise to click on the link to the song and listen, because I have great taste in music(I think I do, anyway), and each song I pick is more than just a song. It represents something in me, whether now or in the past, it’s chosen for a reason. Part of me feels like I’m letting my readers down by adding a song to my posts, and I have no idea why I feel that way so strongly. I know no one expects me to have something creative and exciting to say every time, the people I know in real life sure as heck don’t expect much more from me most days than for me to nod and grunt a hello in their general direction, then be quiet for an hour while I struggle with the reality of having to be social. So, today enjoy Aaron Lewis with a tearjerker of a song, and oh….btw……just a warning…..if you’re expecting happy shiny songs……yea….you may be disappointed….rarely am I a happy and shiny type of person. 🙂

So, there’s a week left int he inaugural round of the ILLUMINATE event, so with that in mind get down there to have a look at the offerings from some of the grids most creative and imaginative home and decor stores. Galland Homes is there with the ‘Cape Hatteras Bedroom’ items. They’re all sold separately and the set includes the bookcase, small side table, and slip cover chair, which all goes perfectly with the ‘Cape Hatteras’ bed that’s available at the main store. The table, dresser and book case come in two colours to choose from and the slip cover chair has ten male and female sitting animations. The ILLUMINATE event runs until April 13.

I’ve added some home decor to make this a cozy little bedroom. The books in the bookcase are from Dutchie, as is the ‘Dutch Photo Collage’ on the wall to the left of the bookcase.

The art above the bed is ‘Marrakech’ in pastel by Silas Merlin.

The ‘Table Lamp’ on the side table on the right is from C L A Vv.

The books to the left of the chair is from Apple Fall and the books to the right are a group gift from Nutmeg.

The plant in the foreground is from Dust Bunny and the Rug is from Apt B.

I’m in one of the rooms of the ‘Tuscany Loft’ from DaD Designs. It’s one of my favourite skyboxes.

Not All Clutter is Equal

Not All Clutter is Equal

I must admit to not being the best of housekeepers. I prefer being outside, so it gets a little bit neglected in the summer. When I think of clutter in my real life compared to my Second Life clutter, it’s like comparing apples to oranges. What I should do is recreate this photograph in real life! I do happen to have a cardboard box of books ready to go for donation, it’s waiting patiently! And believe it or not, my boots are even beside it, but they’re the boots I wear when I’m out doing animal things, so needless to say there’s a few things stuck on them that I’m sure no one wants to see. I do have a vintage radio I could set beside the boots, it’s red and still works. I don’t have a backpack though, although I could borrow one, but it’s probably almost worn out and in need of repairs. I have a couple houseplants, but the Hoya is really big and has grown into my window blind, so I can’t move it, but the Joshua Tree could sit beside the backpack, and it does look pretty good. I wonder how many Canadians have a Joshua Tree for a house plant? I’ll get one of my tea cups and saucers out to add to the collection, I love my jadeite in the ‘Alice’ pattern by Fire King! I do have a coat rack by my door, but it’s usually covered in hats, toques, and a chore coat. Anything that has the word ‘chore’ in it isn’t photograph material! Now, once it’s all gathered and placed I have to wait a week to get a light coating of dust on it, to make it look like the rest of the things in here! The trick will be getting a windlight for nice shadows, real life windlights just aren’t as good as SL’s!

I started out planning a blog post featuring the ‘Gideon Boots’ from NX-Nardcotix, but after many attempts at getting a pose I liked and an interesting angle I couldn’t seem to get it right and gave up and made them decor! A girl can’t wear her boots 24/7, even though she may want to! They fit the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh feet for the women and the feet for the men’s mesh body ‘David‘ also from NX-Nardoctix. Plus there’s an unrigged pair, so pretty much anyone can wear them. They come in 7 colours and are exclusive to Shoetopia! Also from NX-Nardcotix is the ‘Finley Backpack’! It’s rigged for the ‘David’ body and also comes unrigged and this one I’m showing is the ‘static’ version. It also comes in 7 colours of rich and smooth leather. The backpack is exclusive to Men Only Monthly, which runs until October 15.

Also shown here is the ‘Vintage Bakelite Radio’ from KraftWork, the ‘book pile, leather, brown’ from .:revival:., the ‘cardboard box with books’ from [bauwerk], the ‘coat rack’ and ‘firewood basket’ are from Dust Bunny, and the house plants from [what next]. Oh…and the tea cup is from the ‘hard to find set, mint’ from [keke].

I guess I better get working on my housework, maybe Monday! 😀
