Don’t Believe Me

Don't Believe Me

Don’t believe me when I say I’m OK, it’s probably not true! OK can mean many things and sometimes I just don’t want to face the fact that I’m not OK. I may be struggling with life, but it doesn’t mean I’ll never be better, it just means that at this moment in time I’m not happy. And it’s not the end of the world to not be happy for a time, it’s not like my life isn’t good, it is, it’s just that right now, I’m down. I will pick myself back up, I’ll smile again and enjoy the cool autumn air, the warm sun, and the beauty of life. But today, I have a little black cloud over me.

Sometimes I feel better just by saying that! But now, I’ll get to what I’m here for! First off, I have to apologize to Emms of [QE] Designs for not getting this posted earlier. I was full of good intentions but real life got in the way. The ‘Deema Halter Top, darks’ and ‘Dina Denim Mini Skirt, Skully’ were at an event that has now ended, but I’m sure you’ll find them at the main store as soon as possible. The new [QE] Designs main store is all ready for shoppers so go have a look around, I do know that today there’s a sale on different versions of this top and mini, so you’ll want to make sure to pick them up! Both are SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh body compatible, HUD driven, and the top has 15 colours with the top and strings colour change separately and the mini has 20 colours to choose from. I love the vibrant colours and the very nice detailing on these!!

I was playing the new round of PocketGacha and was incredibly lucky to get the ‘Catpuccino, Chocolate, RARE’ from Reign. For anyone who hasn’t heard about this incredibly easy event, check this out and find out more! It will completely change the way you think about a gacha event! So, Reign has released the ‘Cat Lady Started Kit’ for this, and all of the cute cat themed items are must haves! I LOVE chocolate and cappuccino, so I know I’ll be slurping the bottom of the cup in no time at all! Chocolate high, here I come!

This tousled hair is ‘Suzy’ from [monso].

It all starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I added the ‘Catpuccino, Chocolate, RARE’ beverage with it’s bento animation to a pose from the ‘The Paula Series’ set of poses from an lar [poses].

I’m at ‘Mother Road‘ for this picture. It’s a great place to hang out and take some pictures.

I Die a Little Inside

I Die a Little Inside

A little part of me dies when I see suffering! I want to heal the injured and cure the sick. I want to take away the suffering and ease the pain of others, be it human or animal. I wish nothing had to endure what this sometimes harsh life puts upon us. I face a decision today, and not one I take lightly. But, for me, the decision is made with love, to bring peace and ease the pain of one that I love. I prepare for the inevitable, I weep with the sorrow of losing a part of my family, for my pets are my family! I’ve been through this many times in my life and it never gets easier, but I know in my heart that it’s the right thing to do. So, today I have few words, for I’ve died a little inside!

I stayed home last night, just taking some quiet time to think and reflect. I was planning on making this a humourous post, but with RL things going on, I feel no humour. So, I’ll just get to the business at hand. First off, LEGAL INSANITY has released the ‘Katja Lingerie” exclusive to the Frou Frou event. This event specializes in original mesh lingerie and runs until October 8. The ‘Katja Lingerie’ from LI comes in lots of colours, and if you get the fatpack there’s lots of exclusives with that…and all kinds of customizing is possible! It’s fitted for the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies and has kind of a vintage feel to it. This texture here is exclusive to the fatpack!

I want to jump to the home decor info now, to bring attention to the ‘Dreamers Projector’ from [ keke ]. When advanced lighting is enabled it projects the moon onto the surface it’s aimed at. It makes for a really nice atmosphere in a room or even outside on a screen or the wall of a building. Also from [ keke ] is the ‘Autumn Bell Jar, moth’. It’s a surprisingly large jar holding a beautiful array of leaves, branch, and moths and it’s perfect for fall decorating. [ keke ] always has incredible things to add to your home to make it that little bit more cozy!

The ‘WAKANA’ hair is from Argrace. I love the little pieces that move with me as I move!

My look all starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento meah head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The house plants to the left are from {what next} and the outline to the right of me is the ‘Leather Chair & Pillow’ in caramel from brocante. You can’t see it well, but I know it’s there!

I’ve become a huge admirer of the poses from Del May. They convey emotion and look so natural. This is the ‘Piano Shoulders’ pose.

I Am What I Am

I Am What I Am

I spend quite a bit of time scrolling through flickr and Facebook and I always stop to take an extra look at photos that catch my eye. As I take a few minutes to look I can’t stop myself from wishing I could take pictures that good. I see everyone else’s creativity, the lighting, the setting and the pose all together creating a thing of beauty, that I never seem to attain. I’m not saying this for someone to comment that I’m really good or anything like that. I’m just stating how I think about my own work when I compare it with other’s. And, I’m the first person to say, ‘never compare your own work with anyone else’s’, but I don’t practice that, it seems. 😀 I admire so many Second Life photographer’s work and strive to one day be as good, but I have to admit to myself, that I am what I am! I like bold colours, vast horizons, and playing with shadows. I like sunsets, storm clouds and a dusty look, and I’ll take as many pics as I need to to get the look I think is right. And sometimes I give up, knowing that it isn’t going to get any better and I need to save my sanity and not get obsessed with it. Am I completely pleased with every picture I post on flickr and my blog? Not even close…..I have my faves and some that I think a fairly good, and others I just accept as the best I could do on that given day! I’m not perfect, I’m completely self taught, and have no idea how to use Gimp or Photoshop, but I try to show a little piece of myself in each photo and convey my feelings. I put my heart into it and hope some of it translates into my pictures, that’s all I want to accomplish here, I don’t want to have the most faves, views, or comments, I just enjoy doing it. But, I’m very thankful for every fave, follow, and comment I receive, I appreciate each and every one of you for taking the time to have a look!

The September round of Hair-O-Logy is open and [KoKoLoReS] has released two exclusives for it! I’m wearing ‘Sami’ and I love how it’s up off my face and under control. ‘Sami’ needs to be worn with an updo hair base, which is included in system tattoo layer or tintable Omega HUD. I’m not very good at tinting anything, I’ll admit that….but I think I did fairly well this time around. The hair is unrigged mesh for easy fitting and has nice detail with some nice wisps flowing back from the forehead. The [KoKoLoReS] colour palette is extensive with four colour packs each holding 25 colours, the clip is also colour change! Hair-O-Logy runs until September 30.

I’ve thrown on the ‘Amala Bikini’ from Maitreya, for a quick dip!

My look all starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I found the ‘Cleanse’ pose on Market Place from {Lyrium}.

Here Kitty Kitty Kitty

Here Kitty Kitty Kitty

I’ve talked about my dogs in the past, but I’ve not talked about my cats, at least that I can remember. I have two cats, they don’t live with me in the house, but they have a very comfortable home in the barn. They’re not the traditional barn cat that most people probably think barn cats are, fairly wild and just live on what they can scrounge. Mine are well fed and cared for, since they didn’t ask to be here. They’re both ‘drop offs’. That’s what I call them, anyway. I live in an area that’s fairly close to a major center and a fairly busy park, so in the fall, when everyone is sick of the spring kitten they thought they wanted, they drive out into the country and find a farm to drop it off at. They assume that the cat will find a new home, just by walking in the yard and saying, ‘hey, how are ya…mind if I hang out awhile?’. This isn’t the case! The cat is terrified and wild, and maybe it was a pet in it’s previous home, but it’s no longer there. I see them shoot out of the barn like a bullet when they’ve come to find food and I may get a look at it’s colour, but that’s about it. I get at least one drop off a year and sometimes I can save them, and sometimes I can’t. I got Hazel about 7 years ago, she came to me as an older spayed female, she was wild, very wild and it took a winter of her hiding in the barn before she finally came to me and let me touch her. I think she’d be happier in the house, but she has adapted well to the barn life. Bob came to me about 4 years ago, he was a young and skinny tom cat, who was half tame but not trusting at all. It took that whole winter to get so I could touch him, and finally when he starts to think I’m really great, I had him neutered! He hasn’t held a grudge about that, I don’t think. 🙂 This years drop off came to me a little earlier than usual. He’s a small young male cat, all black with huge golden eyes, and peers at me while I walk past him around the yard. He used to run from me, but I’ve been leaving food for him so he’s now a little bit trusting, although I haven’t touched him yet. He’ll come around! The gist of this whole thing is…..please….please…when you get a pet and find you can’t care for it or don’t want to, don’t drop it off at a strangers home! Make a responsible choice and re-home it, or put it up for adoption…..because leaving it at someone’s farm and hoping they take it in isn’t the answer. Believe me!

I’m all dressed up for an afternoon of shopping here, but I take a minute to visit the furry bundles that have invaded my home. I want to bring your attention to the ‘Cosette Heels’ from Ingenue. These heels come in 16 bright and eye catching colours and the lacing down the front makes a nice accent to the little peep toes. They fit the high SLink and Maitreya feet and are available at the current round of The Arcade Gacha Event, which runs until the end of the month. And don’t forget about the reward gift!! The ‘Cosette heels’ come in a gorgeous floral design delivered free to you after playing 25 times on the machine! They’re exclusive and will be retired after the event is over. Get playing!

It’s early fall here and it’s getting to be sweater weather! So the ‘Passport Sweater’ from Tres Blah has been released just in time! It comes in ten colours, and I have to add that Tres Blah colours are to die for! It’s Maitreya, SLink and Belleza mesh body compatible and TB clothes always fit like a glove! The ‘Passport Sweater’ is available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Lily’ hair is from Mina Hair. I love this asymmetrical bob that can’t decide if it’s fun and flirty or all business! It’s available now at ~uber~.

Also at Collabor88 is the ‘Cabo San Lucas Leather and Shell’ necklace from Maxi Gossamer Jewelery. It’s colour change via drop down menu and includes 4 leathers, 9 mother of pearl shell colours, and gold or silver options.

The ‘Leather Skinny Pants’ are from Maitreya. The fit and the optional longer pant leg are perfect!

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

This pose is a single pose from M I L A.POSES, it’s number 82.

These pesky kitties are from the ‘Witty Cats’ gacha set from Mutresse.

The ‘Vintage Big Broadcast Radio, RARE’ is from the Vintage Radio gacha set from KraftWork. Each radio in this set has two versions, one is scripted to be used as a radio and one is decor only.

The ‘Cat’ sculpture is from the ‘Catz’ gacha set from Silas Merlin. I have some of his paintings and sculptures displayed at my home and they’re incredible! You can find his work at The Silas Gallery on New Babbage.

The ‘Vintage Frame, Lemonade’ is from tarte, the crate it sits on is the previous packaging from Pilot, the books in front of the crate are from a gacha set from aisling, The ‘Morrison Cushion Pile’ is from a gacha at junk., the ‘Potted Palm’ is from dust bunny, and the chair with pillows and blankets on it are from the ‘Black Roof Brick House’ gacha set from HAIKEI.

My home is the ‘JAC Boat Shack’ from Redgrave.

Acrophobia

Acrophobia

I don’t have many phobias…….but this is one that I do have. I’ve had fear of heights all my life and it’s a funny thing. I can visualize not being afraid…I can run it through my mind that nothing will happen to me…but once I get past the first step on a ladder all bets are off! I’m either afraid I’m going to fall or afraid I’m going to jump! It makes no sense…because I’m holding on for dear life and usually if I did fall, the only thing that would happen is I’d end up standing on the ground 2 feet below. I’ve pushed my limits of this fear in the past. I climbed the silo we had on the farm…and it was 75′ straight up…..I didn’t see much while doing that…going up…..standing up there…or going down. I felt the breeze on my face while I squeezed my eyes shut and prayed a lot! I’ve been in a hot air balloon a few times. I was OK up there if I didn’t think too much about it. The fact that I stood on the plywood floor of a wicker basket with nothing keeping me up there except nylon and hot air had to be far from my mind, if I was to enjoy the trip! The small issue of the ten foot flame shooting high into the nylon was another issue I had. Oh…btw…who in the h*ll invented that? You take a tank of propane..light it on fire, then put a huge nylon balloon around it and stick a wicker basket below…….and then….get in and go a mile up in the air, drifting over God knows where! Now that I think of it….that’s just crazy!!

Today I’m high up on the windmill at the beautiful Nevada-esque sim ‘Mother Road‘. There’s lots of new stuff going on at the sim, with the expansion and all. Who doesn’t want more desert in their life?

I’ve made the climb while wearing the upcoming Monthly Midnight Madness outfit that’s going to be available at Slipper Originals this coming Friday night and going on into Saturday morning. The ‘Sannie Top’ will be free to the first 1500 who slap that board starting Friday midnight to Saturday noon. And then, from noon Saturday to midnight the ‘Sannie Shorts’ will be free to the first 1500. Optional add on HUDs will be available for a very low price. So, don’t forget about Monthly Midnight Madness…it only happens once a month!

It’s not a really close look at the ‘Betsy Sandals’ from NX-Nardcotix, but with the big happy bow and the unique strap down the foot, they really stand out! They come in eight colours and fit the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza flat feet.

The MAYU hair is a nice breezy hair from Argrace.

You can see I’m wearing a necklace, but that’s about it. It’s the ‘Sequoia, medium Necklace’ from EMPYREAN Forge and available at the current round of FaMESHeD.

The whole start of my beautiful self is the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya and the flat feet from SLink.

This is the ‘Breathe Me Back to Life’ unisex pose from :LW: Poses. It’s an individual pose that includes the pose with mirror and pose balls for easy posing.
