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.

Cherish the Day

You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer
If you were mine
If you were mine
I wouldn’t want to go to heaven

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
You’re ruling the way that I move
You take my air

You show me how deep love can be

You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away

You show me how deep love can be
You show me how deep love can be
This is my prayer

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away
Won’t shy

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray

I Cherish the Day

Cherish the Day‘ ~Sade~

If, at the end of the day, you can look back and be satisfied that you’ve done all you can to make the day count, it’s been a very good day. How do we make a day count? First off I try to accomplish something, no matter how big or small, just make at least one step forward. I make sure to laugh as much as I can…even though some days all it might be is a small smile while considering the irony of this world. I want the people I love know how I feel about them, it may not always be obvious but even just doing something nice for them can let them know they matter. To make a day complete it’s good to do something for yourself, reading a book while soaking in a bath or taking a walk to collect your thoughts….doesn’t matter what it is….if a person enjoys it….then do it! Unless, of course, it’s illegal…….then I don’t want to know about it. 😀 A random act of kindness is always good to make a day better, both the giver and the receiver benefit from one small good deed each day. And when I lay down at night I remember to appreciate that I’ve had another day here on this earth and that if I don’t make it through the night ahead….at least I made my last day count!

First off, I want to thank Vrir for enjoying this sunset with me. There are few things better than feeling a light evening breeze coming in off the water and hearing the soft sounds of the waves lapping at the shore, at the end of a perfect day. ♥

Ok, I know this picture’s a little bit dark……well….yea….maybe more than a little bit, but I wanted this lighting, so I’m hoping Robert Galland of Galland Homes will understand that the daybed, which I’m featuring here, is somewhat lost in the silhouette but I’ll make it up with a closer look below. The ‘Freeman Day Bed’ is the newest release from Galland Homes and it’s exclusive to the FaMESHedGO HUD based shopping event and available at the Main Store. It has a land impact of 8 and is available in PG and Adult, with bento animations and sequences included with both versions. The animations are high quality and there’s a few that I’ve not seen before and are SO adorable!

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…

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.

Take Me Away

Imagine myself in an automobile
A hundred miles an hour, only me at the wheel
I want it to shine, to be only mine
The engine has to be just one of a kind

How many dollars do I need sir?
You know I sure don’t have a lot
There must be something we can work out
Well, I’ll take it anyway

I guess I could make room for one, a bottle of rum
You and me together riding into the sun
Live without care, with the wind in my hair
I’m driving through the desert, yeah I’ll go anywhere

Take me where the wheels take me, far away
Wheels take me, I can’t stay
Wheels take me, any place today

Imagine myself in an automobile
A hundred miles an hour if you know how I feel
Alone with my mind, leave my worries behind
I might even reach the border, it’s just a matter of time

I said take me where the wheels take me, far away
Wheels take me, I can’t stay
Wheels take me, any place today

Oh I’m going to San Diego, here I come
San Francisco, it won’t be long
Sacramento, yeah in the sun
I just might go

Oh, I said I’m going to San Diego and San Jose
San Fransisco and hang by the bay
Sacramento, yeah all the way
I just might go all the way to Mexico
I just might go all the way down to Mexico

I’m so glad I had a childhood before technology! It’s a good thing, because it’s not like I had a choice in the matter, we all just kind of happen when we’re meant to. When I look back on the first road trip I remember the family taking, and then think about parents today and what they keep kids occupied with on road trips, I have to chuckle. Nowadays it’s get the earbuds and throw ‘Finding Nemo’ into the DVD player or play games on the phone and everyone just stay in your own world. The first trip I remember took place when I was about 5 or 6, just a young’n, the destination was British Columbia to see my aunt and uncle and it was Mum and Dad and my sister and I. I remember being super excited because Mum had bought us new stuff for the trip. We had pads of paper with new pencil crayons and regular crayons, I had a bunch of new little plastic horses to play with, and the pièce de résistance was a blowy thing. I remember it perfectly, it was hand held, made of beige plastic and had little piano keys on one side in all kinds of colours. I have no idea what it was called, but my sister and I both had one. The idea was to play it like a little keyboard while blowing in it, but needless to say the blowing in it was easy, the playing it and making music, not so much. As an adult I’ve asked myself this many times, why………when parents normally don’t want the kids to have toys that make noise, would Mum buy, not one….but two noisy toys for us? I like to think that my sister and I were really good kids and were generally quiet, so the little bit of noise we may make, wouldn’t bother anyone. I don’t think I’ve ever asked her, I’m going to……see what her take on it was. Back in those days a road trip consisted of lots of nibbles, new fun toys and watching for license plates from other provinces and States. For some reason I remember watching for cows too……even at that age I loved cows! 😀 A road trip now isn’t that much different for me, there’s nibbles, and watching for cows, I still check out license plates but I don’t have the blowy thing anymore, now it’s just singing as loudly as possible every good driving song I know.

As you can see, it appears Liz is on a road trip! She’s ended up in the back seat, but that’s OK…..lots of time for thinking and watching the miles pass by! I’m in the ’64 Chev Impala SS which is in front of the diner at Mother Road.

I want you to take a look at my featured item today! It’s the ‘Jaclyn Earrings’ from Elle Boutique and exclusive to the Vintage Fair. The Vintage Fair is an event that I look forward to and with it only here once a year, I’m always excited when it finally opens! It’s everything retro and Elle has created these earrings that are right outa the ’70s! They’re HUD driven with 16 colours for the hoops, 7 metals and they’re also SL materials enabled. They resize on touch and oh…did I mention they’re really great looking? The Vintage Fair runs until June 24.

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram and it’s available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Sabrina Top’ is from /erratic/. I love this top……so summery and cool!

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

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.

The pose is from the ‘Maya’ set of poses from RK Poses.

A Little Bit of Happiness, yeah

What you gonna do?
What you gonna do with people like that?
What you gonna say
What you gonna say that will make them change their minds

Who you gonna find
Who you gonna find to listen anyway
Where you gonna go,
Where you gonna go to try and get it straight
I once found the recipe, for what to do to cure my needs
I packed some things just what I need
Only bare necessities
Asked Mrs Walsh to feed my cat
Calling Lord Tate to tell him that
I’m going home where my people live
Need a little bit of happiness, yeah
Who’s it gonna be
Who’s it gonna be who’ll tell it like it is
Who you gonna blame
Who you gonna blame for all our differences
Where’s it gonna end
Where’s it gonna end if anywhere at all
Where you gonna go
Where you gonna go if you can’t take it all?

I once found the recipe, for what to do to cure my needs
I packed some things just what I need
Only bare necessities
Asked Mrs Walsh to feed my cat
Calling Lord Tate to tell him that
I’m going home where my people live
Need a little bit of happiness, yeah

Write a little note and apologise
To the next door so they realise
Call up little Max and her sister Jean
Say sorry for inconveniencing
Order a cab, take it to, the bus station up on 42
I’m going home, where my people live
I need a little bit of happiness yeah

Happiness‘ ~Johnathan Jeremiah~

What’s going through her mind? She looks to be in very deep thought, not fully aware of what her surroundings are and the intense stare is somewhat unnerving. Is she thinking of her past, and the hurt and pain that’s been such a large part of it? Or maybe, how she overcame that and has become a person that she can be proud of. She might be thinking about past relationships and what part they play in the woman she is today. Or maybe what’s on her mind is the time she’s spent worried about the past and the future with no regard at all about how to enjoy the today. And how can someones thoughts not go to the unpleasantness of losing someone close, when there’s always something to remind who is lost. There are so many things that could be in her mind, and maybe they’re all there, in some way, but one thing’s for sure……if she was a guy…..he’d be wondering if there’s any leftover pizza! Ah, the most basic difference between men and women……they can share the exact same look, but the thoughts inside are as different as night and day! Gotta love it! 😀

I’m wearing the ‘Saron’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo and I have to say it’s one of my favourites! It comes in black and pink, each with 4 ink tones and the amazingly complicated lines combined with the gorgeous roses on the front and back make for an eye full. It extends onto the hands and the rose and little line of flowers connect it all perfectly. The line of flowers down the abdomen is also eye catching. It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies plus Omega. It’s available now at Cosmopolitan Events which runs until June 16.

The cute little top from the ‘Irma Bikini’ is perfect for getting lots of sun! It’s a fairly new release from *Just BECAUSE*. It’s fitted for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and comes in tons of colours, the top and bottom are both on/off with toggle and there’s a mini pack of prints that can be purchased separately, or it’s included with the fatpack.

The jeans are the ‘Lila Rolled Cuff Jeans’ from Blueberry.

The ‘H0125’ hair is from tram.

As per usual 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 sitting at the easel near the landing point at Isle of May here, but I’m using a pose from the ‘Bored’ set of poses from K&S Poses.
