This Just In…….

This Just In.......

This just in……..someone was snapping pictures while Liz Winterstorm was on a break from her long day with photographers at the beach last week. It seems she reached the limit of her patience when one of the photographers asked something of her that she wasn’t willing to do. There’s no word at this time of what that might have been, but she stormed off the set and was seen snatching this ice cream cone from a 5 year old child, while in a fit of rage! The Mother of the child chased after her, but she refused to give it back and then proceeded into the water, not looking back. It’s believed that Liz has become hard to manage when working and an unknown source says everyone around her is fed up with her. “She used to be so nice and now no one can say anything to her without her yelling and screaming and threatening to quit!” says an insider. This isn’t the first incident with ice cream that Liz has been involved in, last month she was seen buying a 4 liter pail of her favourite flavour, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and when she saw someone with a camera she yelled epithets at them while running after them and swinging the frozen pail of ice cream like a weapon. Only time will tell how she manages, if or when she reaches the breaking point, everyone just hopes there’s enough ice cream within reach for her to calm down, while her staff calls the doctors.

Ok, none of this is true..you do know that, don’t you? I came by this ice cream cone completely on the up and up and no 5 year old was deprived of the treat. The ‘Ice Cream Party’ gacha set is part of the June round of PocketGACHA from Amitie. The set you’re playing for has 7 single commons, and 2 multi person RARE poses, all with props included. I’m using pose 2 from the set and although the ice cream isn’t my favourite flavour…it’s still damn good! PocketGACHA is a monthly HUD based gacha fair that’s super easy, with no endless TP’ing to get into the sim and only to find mega lag and crashing. Just stay home….try the demos……play all the gacha you can handle…and enjoy! 😀

I’m wearing the ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ from *Just BECAUSE* here, I had promised you’d see a rear view last time I wore it and I didn’t want to disappoint. It’s HUD driven with on/off toggles for both top and bottom plus the top has a toggle to make the ruffle the only part covering your girls. It comes in tons of colours, including the printpack and as always the fatpack has every colour you could want. The ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ is available at the JB main store for the FaMESHedGo event, which is ongoing til the end of the month.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from HUD A from tram.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at Cherishville at Mysteria Cove for this shot.

Hold Back The River

Hold Back The River

Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between
Tried to square not being there
But it’s there that I should’ve been

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Once upon a different life
We rode our bikes into the sky
But now we’re caught against the tide
Those distant days all flashing by

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Oh, oho, oho, oho, oho
Oho, oho, oho, oho

Lonely water, lonely water,
Won’t you let us wander?
Let us hold each other?
Lonely water, lonely water,
Won’t you let us wander?
Let us hold each other?

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river
Hold…

Hold Back The River‘ ~James Bay~

I was going to try to find a song that related to the mood of this picture, but since it’s Saturday and I’m in a good mood, I figured I’d pick a song I like and go with that, regardless of matching the picture. I’ve always written blog posts with feeling, matching my mood of moment. I can’t say ‘mood of the day’ because I never have one mood for an entire day, well I do sometimes……but it seems that only the truly dark moods can last for days without being altered. Whereas, the happy moods always seem a little bit fragile and can leave me in a heartbeat and be replaced with usually something not so happy. I don’t think I’ve ever had a good mood get better in that way. My moods can plummet from the slightest things, usually having to do with others in my life. I’ve always wondered if everyone is like this, and they’re just better at controlling it, I’ve never been able to control it…..I’m just full of free flowing emotion that can get swept away with the tide so easily. But today is a good day, although……it’s only 5:30 AM…..I’ve had coffee and not seen or spoken to anyone yet….after this…all bets are off! 😀

The main thing to focus on in this picture is the pose! I saw the ad for this set of poses from IntoXx and knew I had to attach my PocketGacha HUD and work at getting it. The June round of PocketGacha started yesterday and I haven’t done much shopping on it yet, since I was so focused on getting this RARE pose. Remember when people used to say, ‘talk to the hand’? I haven’t heard that in a long time! For your copy of the PocketGacha HUD just drop in to the PG HQ and you can get right at all the gacha fun. You can find more poses for men, women and couples at the IntoXx mainstore.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

I’m wearing the ‘Sahara Dress’ from Tetra, I love the long cool look of it!

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at the gorgeous Oboeru sim for this shot.

Friday Fun

Friday Fun

So, after getting through a rough couple weeks, I’m ready for some Friday Fun! And what exactly is Friday Fun, you ask? Well, it could be anything, really! For me, it’s just finding a little bit of peace, after some pretty stressful days. So, since I did retail therapy during those trying times, I’m not going shopping. I took in quite a few live shows in the last few evenings, so I might do that again this evening. Heck, I think I’ll even stay up later than normal, and although I’d love to have a few Caesars, they’ll have to be virgin since I don’t drink! But that’s doable….I have what I need for them and I can pretend I’m getting drunk. I can slur my words, wobble when I walk and since I’ll be in world but alone in RL, I can hug random people in-world and tell them how much they mean to me, even if I don’t know them! I try to have fun in Second Life no matter what’s going on in my real life, and I think that’s most important! Why would I bring any unhappiness in-world with me, when I can be and do anything I want while I’m here. It’s not always easy when bad things are happening in life, but even the smallest bit of enjoyment can be an improvement over reality. So, get out there and have some fun, doing whatever floats your boat! 😀

I’ve been sitting at the bus stop for awhile, just reading and getting a cold butt, but hopefully the bus is coming along any minute and I can get where I need to be. I’m sitting at the ‘Urban Bus Stop Scene’ from the ‘Bus Stop props and scenes’ gacha from KraftWork, and available now on the one and only HUD driven gacha, PocketGacha! The set includes 6 common and 1 rare, all with lots of ways to customize! The January round of PocketGacha runs until the end of the month!

The book and sitting pose are part of the ‘Book Lovers’ set of props and poses from Le Poppycock. I’ve used this set before and it’s so versatile. There’s books and cats for props, but unless a stray cat comes around I thought it unlikely I’d be petting one here!

My outfit for this little outing is the incredible ‘Leather Jacket & Sweater’ from fame femme! This is the Black version of the jacket and can be worn with or without the sweater, which is HUD driven with 11 really pretty colours.

The ‘DWL Jeans, classic, skinny’ are from Blueberry.

I know you can only see enough of the boots I’m wearing to know that I have some on, they are the versatile ‘Tactical Flip Boots’ from [VALE KOER].

The ‘WAKANA’ hair is from Argrace, it’s one of my all time faves!

I started with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Pennywise, from IT by ~Stephen King~

I really really dislike clowns….I don’t think there’s anything funny or happy about them. To me, they’re just flippin’ freaky! I haven’t seen the remake of the movie ‘IT’ from Stephen King’s book of the same name. As a rule I don’t watch scary movies, I guess you could say I scare easily. I’ve read the book though and although not my favourite SK book, it is a good one! As if clowns needed more proof that they can’t be trusted….I think clowns have always had a dark side and this just makes them plain evil. After thinking about it for a couple minutes I don’t think that the clowns from a rodeo are creepy, they’re just doing their job and actually have made a sport out of it, the bullfighters in Spain could learn a thing or two from the bullfighters here! There’s no blood, unless it’s the guy’s fighting the bull, and the bull does have the upper hand! Still, clowns generally have a bad reputation and I’m not sure it can be turned around…….I mean, clowns didn’t get this reputation from nothing happening!

A new round of anyBODY has begun and LEGAL INSANITY has the ‘Liza Ripped Jeans’ exclusive to the event. They come in three colours of denim and are sold individually or in a fatpack and the chains can be silver or gold, or removed all together! I’ve always loved LEGAL INSANITY jeans and these don’t disappoint. They have it all…perfect butt, bare skin, and perfect detailing! This round of anyBODY runs until October 15.

The ‘Fight Til the End’ Tolman tank is from Vinyl and exclusive to the ForMax event. This is a fundraiser for a fellow SL’er who has come upon some difficult times. It runs until October 10.

The ‘July’ shoes are from JuJu and are fitted for the SLink, Maitreya and Belleza high feet. There’s an added anklet that I’m not wearing here.

The ‘Lexie’ hair from +elua+ is part of the October round of PocketGacha. This is a great monthly stay-at-home event that makes playing gacha so easy! This is the cafe colour and the gacha includes ‘Lexie’ and ‘Lakia’ hair each with six common and one RARE to play for. The current round of PocketGacha runs until October 14. You can get more info on PocketGacha here.

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

This pose it ‘RockIt’ from the ‘Photobooth 2’ set of poses from [KoKoLoReS]. They’re bento enabled for the face and hands.

I’m at Arranmore for this picture, and once I had my shot, I was outa there! Spooky!

Heavenly

I really want this in my real life. A cute little corner all fixed up with everything I need to be completely at peace. I know exactly where I’d put it too! There’s a little spot in the pasture, on the south side of a poplar bluff that looks out over the prairie. The trees are starting to turn a bright yellow and the smell of dry grass and sage is in the air. The sky is that pale blue that only fall brings and the light breeze has a nip to it, but with this facing south I don’t feel the north west wind. I’ve finished my cup of coffee, and as I lay my book down beside me, having gotten sleepy from the warm sun shining on me, I see nothing but red through my closed eyelids. The sky is filled with migrating birds most of the day and into the night as the crows, geese, and cranes are all on the move, by the hundreds, heading for warmer climes. There was frost last night and soon there’ll be colder nights and eventually snow. But today, I rest peacefully letting all thoughts of my physical being go and enjoy this very second, for it’s the only thing that matters!

The ‘Wooden Signs’ from {MYNX} are rustic and woodsy and say pretty much everything that needs to be said! I chose the ‘Love’, ‘But first, Coffee’, ‘And so the adventure begins’, and the ‘I want to rock your gypsy soul’ signs to keep me grounded in life and to keep all the heavy stuff from clogging up my mind. These signs are available starting today at the September round of Limit 8, starting at 5 PM SLT. If Limit 8 is new to you, you can check out the website.

I wanted to have a little place where I could go to escape the world, yes…..even the virtual one, so I set up ‘The Old Shed, SUPER RARE’ from ‘The Summer is Gone’ gacha set from ..::THOR::... This gacha set is it’s part of the September round of PocketGacha, so there’s no need to leave your home to play. If PocketGacha is new to you, visit their website and find out more, I know you’ll want to get that HUD and start playing! I’m showing most of ‘The Summer is Gone’ gacha set here, including the ‘DIY Bed, RARE’, ‘The Fishbowl’, ‘The Coffee Cup’, ‘The Vintage Nightstand’, ‘The Vintage Radio’, ‘The Flying Leaves’, ‘The Stacked Blankets’, ‘The Old Fender’, and ‘The Broken Bicycle’. The bicycle and the fender both come with two versions, one for ground and one for the wall, to make it nice and versatile when decorating. I love the casual and rustic designs from ..::THOR::.., the intricate detailing and unique look are perfect additions to my SL home!

I love the soft and natural looking grasses from Raindale! This is the ‘dry’ version of the ‘Meadow Grass’.

The ‘Norway Maple’ and the ‘Wild Oak’ trees are from The Little Branch, along with the ‘Wild Grass Dry’ which is included with the ‘Wild Oak’ tree pack.
