Mad About You

Mad About You

Feel the vibe, feel the terror, feel the pain
It’s driving me insane
I can’t fake for God’s sake, why am I
Driving in the wrong lane

Trouble is my middle name
But in the end I’m not too bad
Can someone tell me if it’s wrong to be
So mad about you, mad about you, mad

Are you the fishy wine who will give me
A headache in the morning
Or just a dark blue land mine
That’ll explode without a decent warning

Give me all your true hate
And I’ll translate it in our bed
Into never seen passion, never seen passion
That’s why I am
So mad about you, mad about you, mad

Trouble is your middle name
But in the end you’re not too bad
Can someone tell me if it’s wrong to be
So mad about you mad about you
Mad about you mad about you, mad

Give me all your true hate
And I’ll translate it in your bed
Into never seen passion
That is why I am
So mad about you, mad about you
Mad about you, mad about you
Mad about you, mad about you, mad about you

Mad About You‘ ~Hooverphonic~

I love this version of this song, the orchestra just adds so much depth to it and her voice…..perfect! And the video has such an old fashioned feel with the combination of her outfit and being shot in black and white, gives it the prefect ambiance.

This looks like a typical ‘Liz’ shot, I know….and it is….but usually I have one item for you to look at…….this time I’m wearing new stuff from 3 of my featured designers! I’m listing them in no special order….I love them all equally! 😀

I very rarely wear lipstick……well……when I say ‘rarely’ I actually mean never……it’s been a long time. But, I when I saw the colours in the ‘Moroiter Lipstick Palette’ from Avada I wanted to try them. The set consists of 24 colours and I tried most of them on, then settled for this one. It’s kind of a shock for me to see my lips painted up….so I went low key to start with…..maybe next time I’ll be a little more daring. These are compatible with the Catwa, Lelutka, and LAQ heads, sold separately. It’s exclusive to the VERSUS event that opens on July 1, so mark that on your SL calendars!!

The newest release from !NFINITY is the ‘Vin Necklace’, which is exclusive to the June round of Men Only Monthly. It’s a really intricately detailed cross that comes in silver and gold and the gems are HUD driven with 6 colours for them. It’s resize on touch, so even though it’s sized for men originally, I had no problems getting it down to my size. MOM runs until July 15.

Since I left the house this morning without putting a top on, it’s a good thing I remembered a jacket! 😛 As you can see, I’m wearing the ‘Rose Breast, colour’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo. It’s the perfect accent for a……..ummmmm………yea……..it looks great where it is! lol It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven.

The ‘Miri Denim Jacket’ is from /erratic/. It fits perfectly over pants and comes in lots of colours, with the fatpack having 3 bonus colours.

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram. I’m not sure if anyone notices, but I adore tram hair, it’s so photogenic and one of the most detailed hair in SL. I always get HUD A, for a great selection of colours.

My skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the 4 options from the ‘Sexy Smokey Eyeshadow’ pack from MILA.

This pose is from the ‘Live Free’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.

I’m at Mother Road for this picture, I love this car! Although I normally favour anything MOPAR……..a Chev will do in a pinch! 😀

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…..it’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.

What a Long Strange Trip it’s Been

What a Long Strange Trip it's Been
Six Years! Yea…..I can’t believe it either! It’s my Rezz Day today and I can’t believe it’s 6 years ago today that I came into this world. It wasn’t easy, showing up in this world all system and noobish. No, not noobish….I was plain old 100% NOOB, as anyone newly rezzed into SL is! I had a white business suit on and carrying a bag of some sort. It didn’t take me long to remove a sleeve, without knowing how, since back then a top came with 6 pieces, all of which had to be worn then adjusted to fit. I ended up at some country bar where thankfully my sister came to my rescue and took me to her place! I had absolutely no clue what was going on, I just knew it was the coolest thing I’d ever seen! Since then I’ve had difficulty adjusting to the many changes that have occurred. I never wanted mesh hands or feet, even though there was nothing at all attractive about system feet or the invisiprims that could put shoes on them. I never wanted a mesh body and Oh Em Gee, I never want a mesh head!! So, go forward 6 years and here I am, all mesh all the time and thinking it’s unimaginable to be any other way! The options for living my Second Life are limitless and I still find it to be great fun. I’ve made some incredible friends and I’ve learned there is no limit to some peoples stupidity, but hey…that’s just the joys of humanity! I love this ever evolving world and hope to be here for many years to come, I may be getting older, but I think I look pretty good for my age!! 😀

Here’s my face…yes….this is what the other side of me looks like! And, I’m wearing the newest release from !NFINITY here! The ‘Luca Choker’ is one of those accessories that stays on all the time, no matter what. I think most of us have one piece of jewelry that makes us feel naked when it’s taken off and this choker would be that for me in real life! It’s a nice simple accent that just adds to an outfit, even just jeans and a shirt. It’s unisex, HUD driven with 4 metals and 4 leather textures, it’s resize on touch and unrigged, plus it’s 100% original mesh!You can get it at the current round of Men Only Monthly, which runs until February 15.

The ‘Junghwa’ hair from [monso] is available at the current round of SaNaRaE. The pretty updo with soft face framing tendrils is so feminine!

The ‘Relaxed Blouse’ is one of my favourites from Tres Blah. It’s HUD driven with lots of bra textures, if you choose to wear it at all!

This is a really good look at the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada. Note the full lips, perfectly groomed brows, and pert little nose, that come together to make me so pretty! Yea….I’m not full of myself at all!! lol

I’m using one of the 9 options from the ‘Harvest Shadow’ set from Veechi along with one of the 3 sets of eyelashes from the ‘Natural 2’ eyelash pack from Mai Bilavio. Plus, my eyes are from the ‘Nissa’ set from Zombie Suicide.

And the whole look starts with the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Just a note, the artwork behind me is from Harry Cover, who was so kind as to share his work with me to enjoy while at home. It’s framed with the ‘Repurposed Barnwood Frames’ from [QE] Designs. I’m fascinated with the whole repurposing trend going on, of course I’ve always done it….it’s just that on the farm we called it scavenging to avoid having to buy something!

My pose is from the ‘Detached Bento Pose Set’ from FOXCITY.

Just Relax…………and Breathe

Just Relax............and Breathe

I’m decluttering my mind today, trying to settle down my thoughts and find a state of peace, that I can sustain. A friend gave me this link to listen to to help still my racing thoughts and learn to breathe deep, so for everyone who needs a bit of quiet time, please enjoy Enigma.

Today I’m featuring [BAD HAIR DAY] with the ‘Rahma’ hair which is available now at Men Only Monthly. As you can see it’s not really for men only, it’s for anyone who likes to be a little bit different! That’s what I love about [BAD] hair, it’s unique styling along with the huge colour palette make it so easy to make it your own. I’m always partial to the black and white mix, but all ten colour packs are gorgeous. The hair has two layers for extra customizing and comes with a mirror version to mix it up a bit. ‘Rahma’ comes in small and large sizes and is unrigged to make it fit just right! MOM runs until December 15.

I’m wearing the ‘Wedding Tux, black plain’ from Yasum here……it’s a little bit of a top, along with nice high waisted, straight leg pants for a really sleek look! These are exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body and available now at the Hipster Women’s Event.

The ‘Red Rose’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear is simply stunning! I wanted to really show off the vibrant red roses by wearing a monochrome outfit and it makes them really pop! It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies plus any Omega enabled mesh bodies.

I’m wearing the ‘Sultry Shadow’ from Veechi for a simple yet elegant eye make up. It’s available now at District 20. It’s compatible with the Catwa and Lelutka bento mesh heads and includes 9 colours. My whole look starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, which is available now at APPLIQUÈ. The rest of me is the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Ok, so this is really embarrassing, but I can’t for the life of me remember who this pose is from! I’m so sorry to whoever the maker is, it may come to me yet, I hope. If you see this and recognize it as your pose….please please let me know!

I made my first visit to the beautiful winter sim ‘North‘. It’s gorgeous, and aside from some guy using incredible pick up lines like, ‘Do you wear spandex all the time?’, it was a very pleasant outing!

To My American Friends

To My American Friends

I’d like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends from south of the border! Us northerners celebrate turkey day in October and the big meal and days of leftovers are only a memory now, but for everyone in the US, it’s about sharing, loving, and giving thanks. It doesn’t matter what you do, what you have, or who you are, there is so much to be thankful for, remember that, if you have the urge to knock someones teeth out to get that TV for a few dollars cheaper. Be thankful for what you already have, because really, if you have a roof over your head, food on the table, and you’re surrounded by your loved ones, what more do you really need?

There’s two events going on right now that LEGAL INSANITY is participating in, and that’s the only reason you need to know you don’t want to miss either of them! First off, the November round of Tres Chic is going strong and LI has the ‘Lula Sweaters’ exclusive to it! They’re fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(HG), and Belleza mesh bodies and come in six colours or the fatpack, which makes them customizable. Tres Chic runs until December 10. The November round of Shiny Shabby is open and LEGAL INSANITY is also there, this time with the exclusive ‘Bea Skirts’. These denim skirts are so cool, the hemline is like none other with the back up high to show be a little bit cheeky and the front kind of indescribable, which is why I’m sharing a link just show you! Shiny Shabby is sporting a new look and lots of great designers, you’ve got until December 15 to get in on the fun.

The ‘Shut Up & Listen Headphones’ are from [Z O O M] and available at the current round of Men Only Monthly. The set includes various versions including 2 for the head, 1 for the neck and one on a support for easy storing, plus it’s HUD driven with 2 styles and 6 colours. MOM runs until December 15.

This is the ‘WAKANA’, blacks hair from Argrace.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, which is available now at APPLIQUÈ. ‘Raine’ is looking lovely on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is the ‘Uh huhhuh, male’ pose from Del May.

I’m at my favourite spot on the gorgeous Hazardous sim.
