Like a Stone

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.

A Hot Night, Hennessy, and Me!

A Hot Night, Hennessy, and Me!

It’s been a hot summer, so far!! The days are long and the sun is high in the sky for what seems like forever, burning down on the land with it’s unforgiving heat! We’ve had little rain, so everything seems scorched with the grass yellowing and that new fresh look of spring long gone! On days that it gets up to +30°C and higher, are the worst. We tell ourselves that it’s nice because it’s a ‘dry’ heat but really. dry or not, it’s still flippin’ hot! The nights that don’t cool down are the hardest to take. I count on cool nights to get the temperature down in the house with a nice cool breeze coming in the windows, but every now and then the night just won’t cool down! When it’s 6 Am and the thermometer already says +25°C, there’s going to be no escape! I know to anyone from the south western States are laughing at me right now, but you have to remember that the winters here are frigid so the difference in summer to winter is sometimes 75°C and more! So when we say it’s hot, it may not be to others, but for us in the great white north, it’s HOT! My answer to this hot summer night, is to strip off my pyjama top, grab a smooth and delicious bottle of Hennessy, and sit on the dock with my feet in the water! I’m not sure how long I’ll sit out here, but with the stars in the sky, the soft breeze on my bare skin, and a little bit of a buzz, it might be awhile!

I’d like to welcome Imitation to my little family of Featured Designers!! Their bento poses and pose props are a pleasure to work with with natural and expressive poses along with bento hand positions that really add to a look! The devil’s in the details, so they say! 🙂 I’m using one of the seven poses from the ‘Kendra’ set, which includes the bottle of Hennessy to pose with. This set is available now at the Imitation main store and Market Place.

The gorgeous butterfly tattoo on my shoulder is ‘Morpho’ and it’s a recent release from Metamorphoses Tattoo. It includes 2 tones of ink and is compatible with classic avatars plus just about every mesh body known to man! The beautiful details, the soft lines, and the fact that it’s a butterfly all make this tattoo perfect for the barely there summer tops! Love!

I’m completely in love with the ‘Mila’ hair from [KoKoLoReS]! This is from the Balayage pack and the detailed texturing is just phenomenal!! It’s available until July 16 at the Hair Fair 2017.

I’m keeping it cool with just pyjama bottoms for my outing! I hope the neighbours are away tonight!! These are the Slumber Party Shorts, pinstripe from the Slumber Party gacha set by Tres Blah!

My whole look begins with the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

Happiness is…..

Happiness is.....

….cancelled coffee plans! Nothing feels as freeing as having made plans to meet someone for coffee and when that day arrives they have to postpone it! It’s like my life opens up before me and I now have a whole afternoon to do with as I want! It’s not like I didn’t want to have coffee with this person, I actually always enjoy our time together, but the one thing I always yearn to do is be at home! And preferably with few people around! Hey…I’m an introvert….what can I say! 😀 A new day and time for coffee hasn’t been set yet, so there will be a different day that I’ll go for coffee with this friend, and that’s fine, but today I have the afternoon free and nothing planned, or should I say ‘nothing is my plan’!

I can’t believe the first week of July is already over and with that a new round of The Chapter Four is in full swing! Le Poppycock has the ‘Strawberry Sky’ A & B pose packs exclusive to TCF! Each pack contains six poses with lots of activity for a busy summer! This is the ‘Imagining Pink’ pose and I look like I could be singing ‘The hills are alive with the sound of music’, but I’m actually just enjoying my time at one of my favourite sims, Hazardous!

I’m wearing the ‘Mila’ hair from [KoKoLoReS] for this shot! It’s available until July 16 at the Hair Fair 2017. I love the angles and edginess of [KoKoLoReS] hair, it always stands out in a crowd!

I made a visit to the Addams main store to grab this new release! The ‘Mellon Long Sleeves Shirt’ does have long sleeves, but very little else! I love it! Addams is celebrating 3 years in business all during the month of July, so stop in a find the red balloons for incredible savings on fatpacks! Also from Addams, is the ‘Malena Denim Shorts, high rise’.

You can only see a bit of the ‘Feather Necklace’ from !nfinity here! You can get a better view of it in this previous blog post! It’s available now at the Men Only Monthly event.

I’m wearing the ‘Just Love’ group gift from Carol G. Tattoo Wear, you can just see a bit of it beside the necklace! There’s a fee to join the group, but there’s six very nice group gift tattoos out right now, and new ones regularly!

The rest of me is the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada! Along with the Lara mesh body, with bento hands, from Maitreya and the kitten feet from SLink.

We’re Having a Heat Wave!

We're Having a Heat Wave!

Yes, a tropical heat wave!! Really, we are! Although where I am it’s usually a dry heat! No ocean breeze, no humidity to make my hair a big frizz ball, and no pineapples growing! I could grow watermelon, but I didn’t this year, so unfortunate when I see what I could have done with them!! My sister, Gillian Galicia, and I having some fun with the ‘Fruity’ pose/prop from Foxcity, here! It’s available at SaNaRae until July 18! The fruit is transfer so you can easily share with someone who needs a bit of a cover up while on the beach! You may be asking yourself if we’re out romping on a beach without anything on, you can check out Gillian’s blog to see for yourself! 😀

Here’s the short list of what we’re wearing! 🙂

Me:

The ‘Bones’ hair is from [KoKoLoReS] and is a Hair Fair 2017 exclusive release! HF’17 is on now and [KoKoLoReS] has 6 new releases, all incredible!!

The Sweetberry Necklace, gold, from !NFINITY, is such a summery addition to an outfit! Especially when it’s about all you’re wearing! 🙂 It’s 100% mesh, HUD driven with 8 solid bead and 8 dual bead colours, and it’s scripted for easy resizing!

I’m wearing the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada! The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

My eyeshadow is from the Smokey Shadow pack from Izzie’s. And my eyes are the Nissa Eyes from Zombie Suicide.

There’s Nothing Like a Day at the Beach!

There's Nothing Like a Day at the Beach!

The moist cooling breeze coming in off the water and cooling sun warmed skin! The smell of sun block heavy in the air, that’s SPF 150 for me, please! The sand that always manages to creep onto the towel or blanket and find it’s way to places that aren’t really conducive to comfort! The fellow sunbathers and kids playing gets annoying after awhile, but hopefully a good book will keep me occupied! I need a huge bottle of water with me, gotta stay hydrated, you know! I’m not much of a swimmer, but I do enjoy wading along the shore feeling the sand and cool water on my feet! I actually haven’t been to any kind of beach in a lot of years, but when I was a kid I did enjoy the time spent along the lake during holidays, waiting to see signs of Ogopogo(I never did)! 😀

First off, the one thing that’s exciting right now is that the 2017 edition of Hair Fair is open!! This is the event I wait patiently for every year, having stuffed my purse with Lindens to shop until I drop, or I’m broke! Usually broke comes first! 😀 [KoKoLoReS] has SIX incredible exclusives for the event and they’re all my favourites! I had no idea which one to wear first! I settled on ‘Mila’ from the naturals HUD! The short sides and front with a nice casual mid length back is a no fuss style perfect for summer! Check out the Hair Fair blog for complete information including slurls and maps! You’ll find [KoKoLoReS] at the ‘Blonde‘ sim!

I enjoy the beach much more in Second Life than in real life! I searched around and found a nice little private beach at Warm Springs for these pictures! I’m looking pretty, relaxed, and just happy to be alive, here! What got a trip to the beach in my mind is the beautiful Ivy Cover Up from NX-Nardcotix! It’s available now at Summerfest’17 and is compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies. I love the high cut leg and the really loose and flowing top with a slightly cinched in waist. It’s perfect for relaxing after the swimming is done! Summerfest ’17 runs until July 20.

With such a sexy little cover up I couldn’t not show the back! The deep V neck back leaves room to show off a pretty tattoo, like this one! It’s the ‘Yesterday Tomorrow’ tattoo from L.c Tattoos and with the pack containing four ink tones it can be as new or as faded as you want! It’s Omega compatible so it works on pretty much any mesh body! You know me, I love bird tattoos! 🙂

You may be wondering why I’m so happy, well I’ll tell you! For my birthday, a week or so ago, my very generous sister, Gillian Galicia, gifted me the Bubblegum for the Catwa bento heads! This look is one of the many included in the gum chewing animations included! Thank you sistah!

The ultra roomy Huguette Bag from C’est la vie is perfect for a trip to the beach!

The pose I’ve used here is from Overlow Poses and with the addition of the bag after posing, the arm is then posed to hold it!

My look all starts with the Lilo bento head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone! I’ve added some eye make up from the ‘Hypnotic Eyeshadow’ set which is available now at The Makeover Room! Both skin and eye shadow are from Avada(formerly Sinful Curves Skins). The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.
