Happy Fathers Day to All the Dad’s Out There!

Happy Fathers Day to All the Dad's Out There!

I want to dedicate this post to all the great Fathers out there, my own Dad included! I’m very lucky to still have both of my parents with me and I’m thankful each and every day for it! Dad has always been there for me! He’s seen me through the bad times and the worse times. He’s always been my fixer! It’s like he could always fix anything for me, whether it was something physical like a bicycle or some sort of trouble that only listening can help. He may not always understand me, but he always has the best intentions! I do wish he’d learn though, the one thing he always says to me if I start to get mad at something is, ‘Well, don’t get excited!’! I’ve told him, over and over again, that those words have NEVER worked to calm someone down and actually it only makes it worse! But, he continues to say it and I keep falling into the trap of getting more mad! 😀 I guess some things will never change! But, that’s not a bad thing, because we laugh at it after and I call him a B*****d and he calls me a B***h, and all is good again! I love my Dad, I’ll always feel like Daddy’s little girl, no matter how old I am!

I’ll start with the ‘Quinn’ hair from [KoKoLoReS] that I’m wearing here! This is from the Bayalage pack, which has 30 textures to choose from, like all packs from [KoKoLoReS]. I know I’m not blonde very often but I fell in love with this one! ‘Quinn’ is on sale now at the June round of Hair O Logy, which runs until June 30.

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear is the latest group gift and it’s beautiful in it’s simplicity! There’s just not enough love in this world, that’s one thing I know! The group is 100L$ to join, but there’s new group gifts released regularly, so it’s a very good deal!

The ‘Luma’ Tube Top from Just BECAUSE is available at the current round of Collabor88! I couldn’t resist the fatpack, so I’ll be wearing it regularly!

The ‘Malena Denim Shorts, high rise’ from Addams are going to be my go to shorts for the summer! They’re compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies and also come in standard sizes.

The Choker(B) is from C L A Vv. and part of the ‘My Edgy Look’ gacha set available now at Kustom9.

The whole look starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Which is rebranding and will be Avada. I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, too!

The manly pose is from Le Poppycock! I really like male poses, women’s poses never seem to have this pensive look!

I think I’ve got a thing with this little church at The Last Forever! I love this stretch of road and with this windlight it’s kind of eerie!

Where Have All the Children Gone?

Where Have All the Children Gone?

The creaking silence of age echos through the streets.
Sounds like old wooden floors under heavy feet.
All of the children once running around have evacuated
Or maybe they’ve just disappeared

Where have all the children gone?

Just yesterday they were tying ribbons in trees and swinging from the branches.
They were leaping over hot coals and swooning at anything

Where have all the children gone?

Those of us who remain wonder around like abandoned children in shopping malls.

Where have all the children gone?

Maybe this is just a dream
Maybe we are sleeping in rooms filled with metal shelves
If we put our ears to those shelves they would tell us stories of how they were emptied

Emptied by the fingers of fathers
Emptied into the flesh of their sons and daughters.

Where have all the children gone?

We hope they’re hiding
We hope they’re playing a game
But we know this is really happening

Where have all the children gone?

This photo is my entry into the Hair Fair 2017 photo contest! The 2017 edition of the Hair Fair isn’t far away and it’s an exciting time, with lots of new releases from really great designers, and all for a great cause! Every year the Hair Fair raises money for the Wigs for Kids organization with each designer donating a portion of sales to this worthy cause! Click on the links to find out more about Wigs For Kids, Hair Fair 2017, and the Hair Fair photo contest. You can also take a look at all the entries in the photo contest on flickr at the Hair Fair 2017 Official Photo Contest page.

The theme for this years Hair Fair photo contest is ‘Wild Side’ so I had to take a look through the HUDs that I normally don’t try out because I’m a regular hair colour type of girl! While looking through all of the pretty colours I came across this soft orange or melon type of colour! I love it! This hair is ‘Luka’ from [KoKoLoReS] and it’s from HUD 04.

The ‘Boho Blouse’ is one of my favourite releases from Lapointe & Bastchild!

You can only see a little bit of the Carrie Denim Shorts from erratic, but they’re really nice, believe me! They have an optional scarf tied to a belt loop and both the scarf and back pockets are colour change.

As always I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Lgo with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins. I’ve added a bit of eye make up with one of the nine selections from the ‘Mythic Shadow’ eye shadow set from Veechi! The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Female Pose N fp’ from Sari-Sari.

I’m at the playground area on the ‘Hazardous’ sim here! I consider ‘Hazardous’ my second home!

Reflections

Reflections

The beauty you see in me, is a reflection of you.

~Rumi~

Oh, this world is a complex one! I’ve been looking at these pictures and the thing I notice most is the reflections of the clouds in the water, how beautiful reflections can be! Now, apply reflections in a wholly different way and think to yourself, what we see in others is merely a reflection of ourselves. If I want honesty in others, how can I see honesty if I’m not honest myself? If I want love, I have to give love to receive it. In order to gain respect, I have to show respect, to others and to myself. So each time I choose to see bad in others, am I not seeing the bad in myself? I know there are times that others are going to be the exception to this, there are many in the world with problems that have nothing to do with who I am, but if I apply this reasoning throughout my relationships, is there not more chance to be happy, within myself and with others?

I love the soft colours of the Celia Shirt from Stories&Co. by Flowey! I love it’s simple styling, with the opening at the back, and with it having a busty or a flat option, you can change your look completely. I’m wearing the flat version here, which I must admit is kind of freeing! 🙂 The top comes in ten colours, all very pretty, and is fitted for the Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies. It’s available now at the February round of Collabor88.

I’m using two poses from the Hollow Heart pose sets from Le Poppycock! These sets are available now at The Chapter Four and contain really nice and easy to use poses.

I made a visit to the February round of Hair-O-Logy and scored some really nice styles! This is Tove by [KoKoLoReS]! I’m very rarely a blonde, but I love this colours, I think of it as a strawberry blonde! I’m testing the theory, do blondes really have more fun!!

When I was young, which seems like a bazillion years ago, summer footwear included ‘thongs’! But, times have changed and thongs are now known as flip flops, and a thong is not worn on your feet! I’m wearing the Flup Flops from Livalle, here! These are the mint colour, but they do come in ten colours and are compatible with the SLink(men’s & women’s) feet, plus the Maitreya and Belleza mesh feet.

I just adore the Melanie Jeans from Blueberry!! These are the ‘Sky’ colour and the Cutie Bootie fit! They’re compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies and the pack contains two different fits.

The Star Collar is from Kibitz.

The nail appliers are from the Rose Garden set, which is a new release out at the Hello Dave main store! I’ll be giving you a closer look in the near furutre!

My whole look starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo, with the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the mesh feet from SLink, and the Bento Hands from Vista Animations.

I’m standing on The Jetty, from IMMERSIV, which has 32 poses for male and female singles and couples(friendship or cuddles), or as a photo prop.

Yes….I’m Single!

Yes....I'm Single!

I’ve been single a long time and as time goes on no one really ever expects anything different of me! You know, when a woman is young, it’s always expected that she’ll find that certain someone, settle down, pop out a few pups, and live a happily(or not) ever after! Once I passed the ‘young woman’ stage people gave up saying anything about my marital status…then I was married for awhile……which didn’t end well….to say the least! So now, I’ve been single for a lot of years again, and I can’t imagine it any other way! It’s going to take a superhero to be better than my own company! I was married to an extrovert to the nth degree! A social butterfly like no one else! So I know that doesn’t really work well! I’m sure there are introverts and extroverts married all the time….but we were complete opposites, with neither seeing it from the other persons eyes! I enjoy my space, my privacy, and my alone time. I need a man who likes their own company and doesn’t expect me to go to social gatherings, but enjoys good conversation, coffee time, and loves animals and the great outdoors! And if he happens to be in Second Life…that’s OK too! But, he still has to have his own home!!

Ok….so there’s a reason why I’m talking about being single…but it’s kind of convoluted! While I was taking these shots I was looking closely at the Selene Corset and Panties from L.A. BoS and noticed the really great cobwebs on the chest! It reminded me of a time my wonderful sis commented that I’d been single so long I had cobwebs….ummm……you know where……oh never mind, you know where that was going! Anyhoo…….the corset and panties, along with the arm bracers, are available at the new round of Designer Showcase. It comes in seven standard sizes, but I’m wearing it on the Maitreya, Lara mesh body!

There’s a fairly new event that’s solely on Market Place, you may not know about! A new round of Buy Now starts at the beginning of each month and all the deals are on Market Place! Slipper Originals has the Maleficent Sandals on special until October 31! The fat pack is at a super low price and it has about a gazillion colour options! Really…a gazillion……I counted!! I love the spikes, the devil’s tail edging up my leg, and the incredible trident heel!!

If you get in close you’ll see one of the five colours in the Granny’s Damson Jam applier pack from Hello Dave! Drop in at the main store…there’s lots going on…and very worth your while!

I have this thing about crows and ravens, so anytime I see something with them I just have to get it! So it was when I saw the Mechanical Crow Necklace, in black, from Bamse!

The Jin hair is from KoKoLoReS.

I’m standing in front of a window in The Clock Loft sky box from DaD Designs.

As always, I’m wearing the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.
