Call Me ~Blondie~

This is one thing that isn’t around much anymore! There used to be payphones everywhere, a big row of them for anyone who needs to make a phone call. When I was on the road it was at a time when cell phones weren’t exactly cheap to have and taking my Canadian phone down into the States just wasn’t affordable. So, I was left with the only option, using pay phones when making phone calls. And it wasn’t just for calling home, I had to make calls all the time to say I’m coming to deliver your stuff or that I’m coming to pick up your stuff! 😀 It wasn’t easy for me to make cold calls. I’m one of those people that says, ‘Why would you call me when you can text?’. But, back in those days I’d make regular calls to people I didn’t know, and I will admit I did get used to it after awhile. Now, is a different story though! I just can’t make myself answer my phone when it rings, I MIGHT if I see it’s someone I know and there’s something that needs my attention….maybe! But if it’s an unknown caller I just kind of chuckle to myself….that person doesn’t have a chance in h*ll of me answering it, and they don’t even know it! If you want to chat, send me a text, or an email, or maybe just send your thoughts my way and keep your fingers crossed that I get them…that’s about the only way I’m available, most days.

It’s Friday and in honour of the occasion I’m wearing the ‘Ellie Lace Jeans’ from LEGAL INSANITY! These are just so happy looking, who could be down while wearing this much lace in combination with jeans! These are fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis, Freya) mesh bodies and are available at the current round of Tres Chic. There’s four denims and eighteen lace patterns and colours to select from and for me they all look happy!

The ‘Charged T Shirt,black,RARE’ is from Vinyl and part of the ‘Charged’ gacha set available now at The Epiphany. This is HUD driven with a plain black or this one that says, ‘You’re a Wizard, Harry’. All of the clothing in the set fits the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies.

The ‘KIKYOU’ hair from Argrace is a new release and it has a couple styling options, which is a nice bonus. It comes in two pieces for easy fitting.

Under all that lace is the ‘Amy Stilettos’ from NX-Nardcotix. I’ll be showing you a closer look at them in the near future!

I’m wearing the ‘Byzantyne Necklace’ from !NFINITY, and I’m sorry you can’t see it much. It’s the free gift for the ‘Men Only Hunt 10’ which runs until October 28 with over 60 stores participating . It’s a HUD based hunt so drop in to the Flair for Events office, and get hunting! Here’s a good look at this necklace that is so worth hunting for.

This skin is ‘Raine’ from Avada, which will be available in November! This is one of my all time favourite skins….so be on the lookout here for it’s release! It’s being worn on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Amara’ set of poses from Imitation! I love it’s introspective look!

I’m at the ever popular ‘Mother Road‘ sim, home of the Mirage Motel 66!

A Law, Seriously?

Ok……there may be some of you who are reading this that do this, but I’m sorry, there has to be a law against looking at your phone and walking? I’ve always known that common sense isn’t always very common, but man, this one is fairly obvious. I know there’s no laws or by-laws anywhere near where I live but I’ve heard of them appearing in some areas where people have died from walking while distracted. Since I know my own limitations I never do this, mainly because I have a hard enough time walking without incident at the best of times, I don’t need the added risk. And don’t get me started on people who drive while distracted…..that’s one of the things that really grinds my gears! I know that addictions and compulsions are hard to control, but there has to come a time where people start looking out for themselves and stop doing things that endanger themselves and others. I remember when a phone came in a bag and had an antenna sticking out of it, heck I had one of them, so I know people have survived for years and years without needing to check Facebook or email every minute of the day. So if you’re doing this right now, put the phone down, stick it in your purse or pocket, lift your head and look up, you’re missing a whole bunch of really great things in the real world!!

It looks like I’m going to be taking an early evening dip in the water if I keep going on the trajectory I’m on. I really don’t want to end up in the water near a dock. It’s like my worst nightmare, the thought of being in water around a well used dock with who knows what in the water with me! And since this top is new, I don’t want to get it wet, either. The ‘Sara Lee Top’ from LEGAL INSANITY is a new release and available at the current round of Tres Chic. It’s compatible with the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies and the fatpack includes tons of options to make the statement you want! Life’s too short to not be who you are! Also, from LEGAL INSANITY is the ‘Ella Denim SHorts’, which are one of my favourite shorts from this summer!

This cute hair with the clips is S06, brown from barberyumyum.

The ‘USAGI Trainers’ are from [Vale Koer].

My whole look starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo 3.0’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is 41 from the huge ‘Digital Alchemy’ fatpack of poses from Bauhaus Movement and available til the end of the month at The Liaison Collaborative. I’ve added the cell phone from the ‘Selfie’ pose set from Imitation, which is a great set of poses in it’s own right!

I have no idea how I made it out on the dock at Mad Pea City.

All Alone

Someone falls to pieces
Sleeping all alone
Someone kills the pain
Spinning in the silence
To finally drift away
Someone gets excited
In a chapel yard
Catches a bouquet
Another lays a dozen
White roses on a grave

To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

Someone finds salvation in everyone
And another only pain
Someone tries to hide himself
Down inside himself he prays
Someone swears his true love
Until the end of time
Another runs away
Separate or united?
Healthy or insane?

To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

And even when you’ve paid enough, been pulled apart or been held up
With every single memory of the good or bad faces of luck
don’t lose any sleep tonight
I’m sure everything will end up alright

You may win or lose

But to be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

Be Yourself‘ ~Audioslave~

Check out this video, I love the song and it’s message. As I’ve grown older it’s the one thing I’ve learned and hope everyone gets to this point in life, the best thing you can do, for yourself and anyone around you, is to be yourself.

I’m going to get right to work here! First off is the pose! It’s from the ‘Amara’ set of poses from Imitation and available at the Souled Out event. The set contains 6 poses, all sexy, expressive, and bento! 😀

The ‘Bodycon Dress’ from Tres Blah is a shiny little piece of wearable perfection! It’s available at the current round of Collabor88. The August edition of C88 is the Birthday round, so expect lots of guest designers and tons of great things! All in line with the theme of ‘Plastic Fantastic’! Remember to reduce, reuse, and recycle! 😀

My shoes are also at the current round of Collabor88, they’re the ‘Stella Heels’ from Ingenue. They fit the SLink and Maitreya high feet and come in twelve colours.

The lovely ‘Accent Gift Chair’ from Nutmeg is available at the August round of Shiny Shabby, which opens today! It has oodles of sitting animations as does the complete set of ‘Kate’s Vintage Chairs’ set.

The WAKANA hair is one of my favourites from Argrace.

As always I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada, with the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya, and the high feet from SLink. I’ve added a touch of eye shadow from the ‘Essential Matte’ eye shadow from the ‘Spring Make Up Collection. It’s a gacha set from a collaboration of Veechi and Fetch! It’s a fully animated make up set, including HUDs for application to Catwa and Lelutka heads.

And last, but not least, I’m standing in the ‘Warehouse Loft Skybox’ from Schultz Bros. and exclusive to the August ’17 Builder’s Box.

Like a Stone

And on I read until the day was gone;
And I sat in regret of all the things I’ve done;
For all that I’ve blessed, and all that I’ve wronged.
In dreams until my death I will wander on.

In your house I long to be;
Room by room, patiently,
I’ll wait for you there like a stone.
I’ll wait for you there alone, alone.

Like a Stone ~Audioslave~

My music tastes change regularly and I’m always on the lookout for artists that move me. A song has to have good lyrics, nothing else, just good lyrics. It’s not about the perfect 4 octave voice, if the song is well written it doesn’t matter to me about the voice singing it. As proven by my love for Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and to an extent Bruce Springsteen. Bruce really belted out some rough sounds back in his early years. But it’s all about the words, what they convey in emotion is what I’m looking for. There’s nothing more moving than a song sung by someone that feels it, regardless of the voice. As of late, my musical choices have been a lot of early 90’s grunge and some of the newer stuff by those artists. I never tire of Eddie Vedder, whether alone or with Pearl Jam. I listened to Soundgarden back in the grunge years, and although I lost track of Chris Cornell since then, his passing has made me appreciate his talent again. I’ve also been enjoying some Alice in Chains, Mother Love Bone, Temple of the Dog, and Nirvana. So, today it’s grunge, tomorrow it might be classic country or folk. But not current pop music…..never that!

I have a few things to point out to you today, starting with the ‘Bess’ hair from [KoKoLoReS]. The mid length, just-got-out-of-bed look is exactly what any hair lover needs. I’m so not into being perfectly styled and sprayed, so this is the perfect head of hair for me! ‘Bess’ is available at the August round of Hair-O-Logy, which runs until August 30.

The rush of the first few days of the opening of Collabor88 is past, so now you can shop at your leisure all of the guest designers celebrating C88’s 6th Anniversary. Stories&Co. by Flowey is one of the mainstays of the event and the ‘Debbie Bustier’ is this months exclusive. It comes in fifteen colours in vinyl, latex, and metals and is fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and ‘Freya and Isis’ from Belleza.

I’m wearing one of the nine selections in the ‘Riot Liners’ pack of eye make up from Veechi. It’s a bold eye liner but doesn’t look out of place anywhere. It’s available at the current round of Rewind which runs until September 10. I can’t believe I just wrote ‘September’!

The DWL Classic jeans are from Blueberry.

The ‘Moon Choker, gold’ is from Burial.

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

My eyes are from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ pack from Zombie Suicide.

There has been a few shake ups at Imitation, but I have no doubt that things will even out and there’ll be exciting things to come. Imitation has been releasing expressive and natural bento poses, some with great props, and I’m sure that will continue. This is from the ‘Isaiah’ set of poses, but is not available at this time. From today until August 18 everything in the store is 50% off, so make sure to stop in and get some deals.

I’m hanging out at the gas pump island at Mother Road at the Ludington sim. ‘Mother Road’ is inspired by the original ‘Mother Road’ sim of days gone by, and with my love for the desert, it’s a place I’ve been frequenting of late.

Show Me How To Live

Nail in my head
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live
Nail in my head
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live
And in your waiting hands
I will land, and roll out of my skin
And in your final hours I will stand,
Ready to begin

Show Me How to Live ~Audioslave~

Just a few song lyrics today in place of my sometimes witty and thought provoking dialogue. 🙂

I want to show you something! Look closely, you can’t miss it! It’s the ‘Noor’ hair from [BAD HAIR DAY] and it’s AWESOME! It’s brand new and available at the main store! I’m wearing options from the ‘colors’ pack and I know I don’t usually wear non natural colours, but I love these! Each colour pack has 24 options and the hair has 2 layers to colour independently, so there’s a whack of options with just one pack, let alone the ten colour packs available! I’m really looking forward to showing you all the hot new releases from [BAD HAIR DAY]!

I’m using a new pose that’s in the ‘Malcolm’ set of poses from Imitation and available at the August round of Somber. The set contains five sad and depressed poses, in two sizes. I don’t know why, but I’m more comfortable doing a post like this than a happy one. I don’t do happy well! 😀

My ruined make up is courtesy of the ‘Rough Night Shadow’ set of eye shadows from Veechi! It’s an older release, but tears are timeless. 😛

To go with the overall feel of this picture, the ‘In the Shadows’ tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t is perfect. My love of birds, crows and ravens especially, is alive and well.

The ‘Off Shoulder Tight Top is from Tetra and available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Leather String Choker is from RealEvil Industries.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, along with the Lara mesh body(bento hands included) from Maitreya.
