Sad Reflection

This is the day that I’m sure most people take a few minutes for sad reflection. I can’t believe it’s been 16 years since that terrible day. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing, as I’m sure most people can. It was a cool fall day, I’d gone for my daily 1 mile walk and enjoyed the clean crisp air. I’d made a pot of coffee for my mid morning break and it was then I decided to turn on the TV. Which was actually really weird, because I never watch morning TV. But, I did and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I was disturbed and in utter disbelief as the events unfolded, I couldn’t look away and as it progressed I couldn’t comprehend it all. As the years have passed I still think about that day and how everyone woke up that morning, got ready for work and carried on like it was any other day, thankfully, not knowing what was to happen. Never forget! ♥ It’s also at this time of year that 14 years ago I was at the lowest point of my life, and struggling to find a reason to carry on. Needless to say, I did manage to get through it, it’s been a lot of work and some very tough times since, but I think I’ve got it together, now! Better late than never, I guess! 😀 If only I knew then what I know now, I could have maybe prevented it, but ultimately it was that point in my life that things started turning around. Everything happens for a reason, and in order for me to rise up and live again, I had to hit that dark and cold rock bottom. So, today is a day to remember, of loved ones lost, of the strength of the human spirit, and to live each day with love and acceptance, and to never waste even one minute.

I love how this turned out, I must say! I’m showing you the ‘Amal’ hair from [BAD HAIR DAY], and this is the one hair that I will never let get lost in my inventory! It’s jaw dropping gorgeous and incredibly versatile and very flattering to ‘muh face’! 😀 I’ll remind you that the colour palette from [BAD] is huge, and oh so gorgeous! I’ll never tire of this combination here. I love soft blues and purples, and all the other colour combinations there is. There’s ten colour packs to choose from, or the fatpack, and each set has 28 colours. On top of that, the hair has two layers to customize independently so there’s a huge amount of combinations possible! ‘Amal’ is available now at the [BAD] main store or on Market Place.

Take a minute to zoom in close to see the ‘Cloudy Day Necklace’ a bit better! It’s from !NFINITY and has matching earrings included. The necklace and right and left earrings are all HUD driven separately so you can mix and match, and with each piece having 12 options, it should work for anything you might want to wear it with. I’ve picked the stormy option, which was kind of fitting today!

As per usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘meil’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. You can only see a little bit of the ‘Dark Metallic Eyeshadow’ from Izzie’s, that I’ve added!

This gorgeous pose is ‘Sad Reflection’ from Del May. The variety of singles and couples poses are incredible. All of the poses are expressive, super natural looking, and unique, which should really kick your creativity into overdrive!

Random Truth

I’m sitting here enjoying a little downpour of rain and thinking about some absolutes in life! So here are a few of my thoughts on this quiet Saturday evening! (my Saturday nights are always quiet…I wouldn’t know what to do if they weren’t!)

1) Garage sales are proof that one person’s junk is another person’s treasure!

2) What makes a person beautiful(men included) is their personality!

3) You’re never too old to act like a kid! It’s a fact that being young is wasted on children, who have no grasp of it’s significance!!

4) True rock and roll is pretty much dead, with the only musicians keeping close to it’s roots are all senior citizens!

5) Today’s country music is NOT country music! I have no idea what the heck it is……but it’s not the country music of my day!

6) Nothing tastes better than a cup of coffee outside after a big job is finished!

7) Life can be sad…and there’s nothing that can change that fact!

8) In most cases, people don’t know what they’ve got til it’s gone!

9) If something isn’t enjoyable to you…..don’t do it….life’s too short!

10) Red Bull looks like urine…and you can’t convince me otherwise!

And now…..on with the show! I’ll start it off with this great little tank and shorts set from More Than Ever! Designer Showcase has opened it’s doors for another round and More Than Ever has released the Layercake Tank and Shorts set. There are three different sets to choose from, and this is from the Hot Earth set, with the tank being HUD driven with three colour options, five sizes, and a whole lotta comfortable style! The shorts are Omega and Maitreya compatible and have a cutout option(seen here) or an inset version, which bares no skin! Designer Showcase runs until the end of the month!

The Zoie Sneakers from Slipper Originals are an adorable pair of footwear!! They’re at the current round of REVAMPED! They come in four solid colours and two prints for the event and they’re SLink, TMP, and Maitreya compatible! I love sneakers in the summer time! They look great, and feel great, sans socks….they go with anything, and they make me feel footloose and fancy free, whatever that is! 🙂

Here’s a close look at the Sunkissed Cheeks from Veechi! It’s available at the current round of anyBODY and it makes me more adorable than I already am!! It has three tones of freckles, blush or both freckles and blush, I’m wearing the dark tone with both! It’s compatible with the Catwa, Lelutka, Logo, and Genesis Labs(seen Here) mesh heads and also available in the tattoo layer for the classic avatars! anyBODY runs until June 28!

The poses are from the On Sundays pose packs from Le Poppycock, and available at the current round of The Chapter Four!

The Eva hair from Mina Hair is one of my all time faves!

I’m on the deck of my beach cabin at Summerwind South for these pictures!

Moodswing

If I needed one word to describe me consistently over the course of my life, ‘moodswing’ would be it! It’s always a roller coaster where my moods are concerned. Why I mention this right now is that the song, ‘Moodswing’ is my newest favourite song! It’s from a new album by Jeff Healey. March 8th marked this great guitarists passing, and in honour of what would have been his 50th birthday this year, his estate has released an album of previously unreleased music. It’s called Heal My Soul and it’s well worth a listen…or two! Or, like in my case, just lots and lots of listening!

Let’s move along and get to why we’re here! The Convivi outfit is a new release from FLIPPANT and it’s the real deal! It’s all rigged mesh and HUD driven and includes a Jacket Dress in 5 standard sizes plus a fitted version for mesh bodies, legwarmers, rigged to fit classic avatars and the Maitreya Lara and SLink(hourglass & physique) mesh bodies, and shoes for the SLink high feet and the Belleza mesh body. It’s all controlled from one HUD and there’s four nice colours to select from.

The very pretty nail applier is available at the current round of Cosmopolitan from -{ZOZ}-. The Soft Rain Polish nail applier is compatible with SLink, Maitreya, Belleza, and -{ZOZ}- mesh nails and has nine colours to choose from! You can purchase the appliers individually or all in a fatpack .

The Medusa hair is from {Letituier} and available at The Fantasy Collective.

The Yasmine skin in Bronze tone is from .::WoW Skins::..

Poses from -slouch- poses, but no longer available!

I’m at After the Fall for the pictures.

Happy Easter

I’d like to wish all of my faithful readers and followers a very Happy Easter! It’s a little earlier in the year than usual, but it makes spring seem that much closer! No, it’s not quite spring yet in my little corner of the world, but we are getting there! The first crow has returned, the robins are here again and the geese are flying over in droves, but there’s no singing of frogs or salamanders coming from the slough yet and nothing has actually grown so far. When I see the first sign of green, be it weeds, grass, or one of the ever hardy perennials in the garden, then I’ll say, “Spring has sprung!”.

I donned a pair of ears for the occasion! I know it’s not original, but I did try! The ears are the Luxury Faux Rabbit Ears from Sweet Thing! This is from the RARE HUD.

I want to show you the newest release from {MYNX}! It’s the Cargo Heart Skirt and it’s a nice comfy mini that isn’t so short your hoo haa shows! I like that! It comes in packs of two, with a plain version (khaki seen here), and one with a lively little heart design. It comes in eight colours and is available at the {MYNX} main store!

The MAGNOLIA Heels are the most recent release from GLAMISTRY. They come in oodles of colours but the fatpack has all the options a shoe lover could want! They’re SLink, Maitreya and Belleza compatible!

I chose a gorgeous pink for my nails! It’s from the Tender Heart set from FLIPPANT! The pack contains six designs and is at a super reasonable price! A great pedi is so important! 🙂

The lovely Yasmine skin in Bronze tone is from .::WoW Skins::. and is the exclusive to the Skin Fair 2016. It’s the last day of the Skin Fair today, but Yasmine will be at the main store after that.

The Annalee hair is from Dameselfly.  It’s available at The Fantasy Collective.

The Mumford Top from Vinyl is from a gacha from the Luck of the Irish Gacha Fair, which ends today. I’m sure the gacha will be at the main store after today, though.

The incredible pose is from the Reverberation A pack from Le Poppycock, and, like always, perfect!

I revisited Maison de L’amitie for these pictures.

May Your Coffee Be Strong….and Your Monday Be Short!

That’s my wish for everyone today! Here in my little part of the world it’s Family Day, which makes it a holiday for some, but others are still at work like always! Even though I’m not employed, other than for myself on the farm, I still follow the flow of the work week. I mean who want’s to miss the happiness of a Friday….or the peaceful easy feeling of a Saturday afternoon? The Sunday night and Monday morning aren’t the let down for me like they are for others though! I do start each and every day with a cup of coffee though. Coffee plays a huge part in making my day good! From my first sip in the morning, after my necessary chores are done, to my late afternoon brew to complete the day, it’s all a part of my day that makes it complete! And, for us happy Canadians….it’s RRRRRRoll up the Rim at Tim’s right now, so for me it’s one more reason to make a trip to the city! I’d like a large double-double please! 🙂

So for this Monday morning, my favourite coffee cup in hand, I bring to you this super pretty outfit!

Flower Power is a great event to help me feel like spring is on the way! even.flow has the Milla Dress there and I’m wearing the exclusive Dark Rose version!
