Don’t Mention It!

Don't Mention It!

With over 800 blog posts behind me, finding a topic to talk about is getting a little bit more difficult. I’m sure no matter what I talk about, I’ve already covered the topic, but I’m trusting that no one will remember it. If I can’t remember writing about something then I’m sure no one else will remember reading it. Today I want to talk about what I won’t talk about, and no matter how hard it gets for me to find something to say, these topics will not be discussed.

You won’t hear me talk about guns, I refuse to get into this debate in a Second Life fashion blog. Do I have an opinion, well of course I do, but I’m just not going to get into it!

I don’t want to talk about politics! Whether I’m for or against any political party in any country will not be mentioned. I live in Canada and yes I have thoughts on our Prime Minister, but I don’t think you want to hear them. It’s really neither here nor there, because in this blog, names of leaders will not be mentioned. Unless it’s a Linden, I can’t promise I won’t talk about a Linden! Oh……btw……while at a Jack Slade show a few days ago I became a Simon Linden Stalker! If you happen to see Simon out and about, don’t touch his hat! 😀

Anyone want to debate religion? Nope….me neither! Whatever anyone believes is completely their choice and I support everyone’s right to freedom of religion.

I won’t get into the topic of humans being omnivores! If you choose to be a vegan, that’s fine…..if you eat meat…that’s ok too. There’s room for us all here, so I’m not going to try to convince anyone that I’m right about my choices.

If you’ve kept tabs on me throughout the past few years on my blog you already know some of my passions in life. I will talk about animal welfare, the human condition, the environment, stupid people, coffee, SL problems, dogs vs cats, farm life, and many other not-so-important topics. And if I can’t think of a topic that isn’t divisive, you’ll get a song or poem. I may not always be interesting, but hey, I’m only human!

So, with this picture today I’m showing you a new release from !NFINTIY!. The ‘Miles Dog Tag Necklace’ is a simple but stylish necklace for men, or women of course! The detailing on this necklace is so intricate, it’s really a gorgeous piece! It comes in gold(seen here), silver, and black and each version is HUD driven with 3 choices for the dog tag itself. I’m showing gold on gold here, has anyone ever noticed gold is my metal of choice? It’s said diamonds are a girls best friend, but not mine…’s gold, baby! It’s 100% original mesh and is unrigged with resize on touch for easy fitting. It’s available now at Men Only Monthly.

I’m keeping it simple here with the ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ from [Vale Koer]. It’s super sexy with the perfect fit, but don’t expect your butt to be fully covered! 🙂

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 pose is one of the 10 in pack ’92’ from Overlow Poses.

After taking a picture, I take time to think about what I want to say, and usually on weekends I give my mind and opinions a day off and take a musical interlude. But, since I had one a few days ago I feel I should think a little bit this fine Saturday morning. So, after an hour or so wondering what to write, while I vacuumed no less, it came to me to talk a bit about one of the things that Second Life offers us. I’ve really come to enjoy the live music scene, that’s alive and well in-world. The quality of artists is truly amazing and the variety is vast. I take in at least one live show a day, and enjoy the time just sitting quietly listening, this morning it’s an early show by one of my favourites, singer/songwriter/guitarist Jack Slade. His sad songs and soulful guitar always stirs my soul. There really is something for everyone when looking for live entertainment, the thing to do is just go! Find a scheduled show and drop in! I follow The Keys Management Group on FaceBook and get a rundown each day of the performances going on around the grid. There’s something magical about live music that makes everything feel all right.

The ‘My Heart Jewelry Set’ is a new release from !NFINITY and it’s perfection is in it’s simplicity. The set of necklace and earrings, in either gold or silver, are 100% original mesh, resize on touch, and the necklace is HUD driven to add your initial, an ‘L’ for me! 😀

The ‘Junghwa’ hair is from [monso].

I’ve added the ‘Catwa Closed Eye’ applier from Izzie’s here, for the smooth closed eye look.

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.

Another Year Older

Another Year Older

It was my real life birthday this past week and not surprisingly I had to endure a rendition of Happy Birthday sung by my family! I will say it was better than usual, probably because I wasn’t singing!! There was a birthday cake which had candles on it for me to extinguish, and with my sister sitting across from me with the camera at the ready, I just pursed my lips ever so slightly so I’d look at least half decent in the shot! There’s nothing like having a picture taken with cheeks fully extended in mid blow, it’s not the most attractive of looks, but it’s family tradition!! We had lots of laughs and we all enjoyed the cake, of course! I can’t believe how fast birthdays come and go, I know having lots of birthdays is much better than the alternative, but do they have come and go in the blink of an eye? I can’t remember every birthday I’ve celebrated, they all kind of get mixed up in my head, if you’ve had as many birthdays as me, you’d forget them too!

It’s been a few days since my last post, and the time between posts has nothing to do with my birthday! I really struggled to get a picture that I was happy with. I think I’ve taken about 40, in three separate attempts and none of them really thrilled me. Out of frustration and passing time I settled on this one! My one worry is that my pictures all start looking the same, I don’t want that to happen, but when creativity is lacking it’s hard to avoid it! But anyway, here’s the info you’ve been waiting for, so patiently!

I always make a trip to all the men’s sales events, and I always find something that catches my eye! This time around it’s the ‘Feather Necklace’ from !NFINITY at Men Only Monthly, or MOM for short!. It comes in gold(seen here), silver, platinum, and black and each is HUD driven with two colour options for the cord. The detailing of it is incredible and with it scripted for easy resizing, I made it small enough for me, easily! I feel like a free spirit when I wear it! MOM runs until July 15.

The June round of Hair O Logy runs until June 30, so there’s still time to get the deals! I’m wearing ‘Vanessa’ from [KoKoLoReS], here and with the wispy tendrils around the face it’s so pretty! [KoKoLoReS] has a total of three styles at this round of Hair O Logy and all are 50% off for the duration! This is from HUD 01, which contains 30 colours!

I’m using a pose from the Solid Gold B set of poses from Le Poppycock.

I joined the Luxe Box group for the June round and Blueberry released the very pretty ‘Cutie Tops’. I forgot how fun Luxe Box is, all those goodies to open, it’s like Christmas in the summer!

The Malena Denim Shorts are from Addams! I could live in shorts all summer and with a pair like this, who wouldn’t want to?

You can see a bit of the ‘Les Fleur’ tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t. This is one of my faves!

I’m slowly getting used to seeing the ‘new me’ with the Catwa Lilo bento mesh head! I think I look a little angry sometimes, but I’m still the same ‘me’ inside! I’m wearing the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada(formerly known as Sinful Curves Skins). I’m wearing one of the nine selections of eye shadow from the ‘Monroe Shadow’ pack from Veechi. I’ve added the Catwa applier of the ‘Nissa Eyes’ from Zombie Suicide which are available at the current round of APPLIQUE. The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at my favourite spot at, Hazardous, for this shot!
