Where Have I Gone Wrong

Where Have I Gone Wrong

‘Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, “Where have I gone wrong?” Then a voice says to me, “This is going to take more than one night.”‘

~Charlie Brown~ Peanuts[Charles Schulz]

I guess for me, this isn’t the question I’d ask the powers that be. I think it’s really cute that Charlie Brown asks it though, because how old is he? How far wrong could he have gone already? I’ve gone wrong at times in my life, no doubt! If I could change a few things, I would in a heartbeat, but would I be a different person or in a different place with a different life? I don’t know, I think everything that a person goes through is meant to get you to where you are at that moment. Like the guy in jail for robbing a liquour store can ask, ‘where did I go wrong’ but I think that answer is pretty obvious! I’m a believer that life will take me to where I’m meant to be, some decisions may be the wrong ones in regards to it being a positive or a negative experience, but it’s all meant to be like that. Looking back it’s really quite amazing to see the course of life and see all the dots that got connected to end up where I am. It’s just my thoughts…..you may feel the question, ‘where did I go wrong’ fitting and want an answer, but I just look at life and think it was all meant to be!

LEGAL INSANITY has a new release out for the Tres Chic event and the ‘Lily Tops’ are super cute and perfect for the coming spring and summer. They come in 10 colours, with 2 metal options, and each top has two styles, closed or open. Tres Chic runs until April 10.

The ‘Faith Hope Love’ tattoo is from Carol G Tattoo Wear. Another one of my faves that sends a peaceful and loving message. You can also find it on Market Place.

The ‘Carrie Denim Shorts’ in brown are from /erratic/. Note the cute little scarf tied to the belt loop, which is optional.

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 is pose 67 from .MILA..

I’m at the new to me sim, Isle of May! And I’m happy to say it’s a gorgeous replacement for hazardous, since it’s closing. I feel like I can relax and breathe here. Oh, and there’s all kinds of familiar names here, working hard on their own shots!

Soothing the Savage Breast

Soothing the Savage Breast

Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast,
To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak.
I’ve read, that things inanimate have mov’d,
And, as with living Souls, have been inform’d,

The Mourning Bride, Act 1 Sc 1. ~William Congreve~

Just a note here…..this quote is often misquoted as using the word ‘beast’ instead of ‘breast’, and the word ‘breast’ is not used in any female physical anatomy kind of way! I thought I’d clarify that! 😀 I know I’m talking about music again, but like I’ve said before, it’s a Canadian winter and there’s not a lot going on, so listening to music is what I do! So, last night I was standing at home(in SL of course), and didn’t much feel like blogging or anything, so while wondering what to do with my evening I happened upon an ad on Facebook for a live concert at a venue in Second Life. Since I hadn’t been to anything like that in a long time I thought I’d give it a shot. I got there early so I could get a good spot to stand or dance, whatever moved me to do at the time, and waited for it to begin. I had forgotten how good virtual live music can be! I spent an hour at the Seaside Lounge taking in the sounds of Alex Mays. His Dad joined him for this set and it was an entertaining and wholly enjoyable hour of music ranging from rock, blues, and country with some festive songs thrown in! Since I love pretty much all kinds of music I loved each and every song! Who doesn’t love a little bit of classic Merle Haggard? The hour flew by so fast I was disappointed to see it end, but before I left I joined his group to stay informed of future concerts and gave him and the venue a little tip to show my appreciation! So, if you find yourself with an evening with no plans, I highly recommend taking in some live music, I can personally attest that it surely does sooth the savage breast! 😀

I’m out in the open field in my favourite spot on the Hazardous sim here! I’m looking out at the far horizon atop a high cliff and enjoying the music stream there. It really is one of my all time favourite places in Second Life.

I’m wearing the ‘Chyna Slit Dress’ from LEGAL INSANITY and looking very sexy I might add. This dress isn’t as revealing as it first appears, so if you’re worried about showing too much skin, fear not, it shows a lot of leg with everything else well covered! It’s exclusively for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya and available now at the Tres Chic event. It comes in 12 colours or in a fatpack, which takes away that impossible decision of what colour to get! Tres Chic runs until January 5.

The F516 hair from tram is one of my favourites.

They’re not really visible, but I thought I’d mention I’m wearing the ‘Galla Heels’ from Glamistry here! The dress is the perfect length to really showcase an incredible pair of heels!

My look all begins with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body Maitreya. I’ve added one of the selections from the ‘Dark Metallic Eye Shadow’ set from Izzie’s.

This pose is from the ‘Voltage’ set of poses from Gingerfish and is available now at the POSEVENT, which is a new monthly event exclusively for poses.

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.

Call Me ~Blondie~

This is one thing that isn’t around much anymore! There used to be payphones everywhere, a big row of them for anyone who needs to make a phone call. When I was on the road it was at a time when cell phones weren’t exactly cheap to have and taking my Canadian phone down into the States just wasn’t affordable. So, I was left with the only option, using pay phones when making phone calls. And it wasn’t just for calling home, I had to make calls all the time to say I’m coming to deliver your stuff or that I’m coming to pick up your stuff! 😀 It wasn’t easy for me to make cold calls. I’m one of those people that says, ‘Why would you call me when you can text?’. But, back in those days I’d make regular calls to people I didn’t know, and I will admit I did get used to it after awhile. Now, is a different story though! I just can’t make myself answer my phone when it rings, I MIGHT if I see it’s someone I know and there’s something that needs my attention….maybe! But if it’s an unknown caller I just kind of chuckle to myself….that person doesn’t have a chance in h*ll of me answering it, and they don’t even know it! If you want to chat, send me a text, or an email, or maybe just send your thoughts my way and keep your fingers crossed that I get them…that’s about the only way I’m available, most days.

It’s Friday and in honour of the occasion I’m wearing the ‘Ellie Lace Jeans’ from LEGAL INSANITY! These are just so happy looking, who could be down while wearing this much lace in combination with jeans! These are fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis, Freya) mesh bodies and are available at the current round of Tres Chic. There’s four denims and eighteen lace patterns and colours to select from and for me they all look happy!

The ‘Charged T Shirt,black,RARE’ is from Vinyl and part of the ‘Charged’ gacha set available now at The Epiphany. This is HUD driven with a plain black or this one that says, ‘You’re a Wizard, Harry’. All of the clothing in the set fits the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies.

The ‘KIKYOU’ hair from Argrace is a new release and it has a couple styling options, which is a nice bonus. It comes in two pieces for easy fitting.

Under all that lace is the ‘Amy Stilettos’ from NX-Nardcotix. I’ll be showing you a closer look at them in the near future!

I’m wearing the ‘Byzantyne Necklace’ from !NFINITY, and I’m sorry you can’t see it much. It’s the free gift for the ‘Men Only Hunt 10’ which runs until October 28 with over 60 stores participating . It’s a HUD based hunt so drop in to the Flair for Events office, and get hunting! Here’s a good look at this necklace that is so worth hunting for.

This skin is ‘Raine’ from Avada, which will be available in November! This is one of my all time favourite skins….so be on the lookout here for it’s release! It’s being worn on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Amara’ set of poses from Imitation! I love it’s introspective look!

I’m at the ever popular ‘Mother Road‘ sim, home of the Mirage Motel 66!

A Law, Seriously?

A Law, Seriously?

Ok……there may be some of you who are reading this that do this, but I’m sorry, there has to be a law against looking at your phone and walking? I’ve always known that common sense isn’t always very common, but man, this one is fairly obvious. I know there’s no laws or by-laws anywhere near where I live but I’ve heard of them appearing in some areas where people have died from walking while distracted. Since I know my own limitations I never do this, mainly because I have a hard enough time walking without incident at the best of times, I don’t need the added risk. And don’t get me started on people who drive while distracted…..that’s one of the things that really grinds my gears! I know that addictions and compulsions are hard to control, but there has to come a time where people start looking out for themselves and stop doing things that endanger themselves and others. I remember when a phone came in a bag and had an antenna sticking out of it, heck I had one of them, so I know people have survived for years and years without needing to check Facebook or email every minute of the day. So if you’re doing this right now, put the phone down, stick it in your purse or pocket, lift your head and look up, you’re missing a whole bunch of really great things in the real world!!

It looks like I’m going to be taking an early evening dip in the water if I keep going on the trajectory I’m on. I really don’t want to end up in the water near a dock. It’s like my worst nightmare, the thought of being in water around a well used dock with who knows what in the water with me! And since this top is new, I don’t want to get it wet, either. The ‘Sara Lee Top’ from LEGAL INSANITY is a new release and available at the current round of Tres Chic. It’s compatible with the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies and the fatpack includes tons of options to make the statement you want! Life’s too short to not be who you are! Also, from LEGAL INSANITY is the ‘Ella Denim SHorts’, which are one of my favourite shorts from this summer!

This cute hair with the clips is S06, brown from barberyumyum.

The ‘USAGI Trainers’ are from [Vale Koer].

My whole look starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo 3.0’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is 41 from the huge ‘Digital Alchemy’ fatpack of poses from Bauhaus Movement and available til the end of the month at The Liaison Collaborative. I’ve added the cell phone from the ‘Selfie’ pose set from Imitation, which is a great set of poses in it’s own right!

I have no idea how I made it out on the dock at Mad Pea City.
