Grown-Up Christmas Gift

This shot was an exercise in patience. See, I got this adorable outfit at the Candy Kitten Tannenbaum booth, and the Legacy Top was not in the folder. I sent a notecard, and a week later got a response (and of course I forgot to check to see if it was just an error with the unpacker, I did everything else lol). Kaci was sweet and gracious and just gave me an unpacked version. Fan for life!

And it’s pose fair time! Not only that, it’s my favorite Christmastime, and most of these poses are holiday themed so just … prepare. Prepare for the holiday explosion that is coming. Also because I was accepted as a blogger for Winter Wonderland Market, so CHRISTMAS OVERLOAD! I love it! Happy beginning of holidays!

Country Girl At Heart

Today was a lazy Sunday. It was Father’s Day in the real world, so did some of that festivities including the amazing NY strip steaks I cooked in the sous vide and seared in the cast iron skillet, homemade mac and cheese, and green beans that I threw down. The rest of the day was spent laughing at SL Secrets and landscaping the outside of our area. It’s absolutely perfect now, with little cuddle and photographic nooks, farm animals and structures, and a lazy river with a gorgeous bridge connecting two areas.

I managed to get some shopping done too! Between Belle, Summerfest, and the Saturday Sale, I managed to blow a lot this week. But holy crap I love the stuff I got!

I can’t believe on Wednesday my avatar will turn 15 years old. 15 crazy years in this virtual world, and then a few days after that I’ll be married in the virtual world. What a crazy few weeks it’s been. But I can’t remember when I’ve been so content in all my lives, happy, and worry free. It’s a good feeling. And now, without further ado . . . my credits!

Home Sweet Home

I did a thing. While Drake and I both have Linden houseboats and I have my little residence on Idle Rogue (Which is a great community, btw) I wanted more space not only to deco but be able to set up things for better photo shoots. So, here I am. With a half homestead to decorate and set up the way we want it.

There are barns, stables, country animals, trees, and even a weiner-shaped lake because, well, it’s me. I’m having a blast making everything the way I want it, just in time for my special day next Saturday.

I decided it was the perfect time to snap a photo with my vintage look that I picked up from the Vintage Fair. I love old fashioned stuff so this look was a no brainer. Wasabi did a great job on this rockabilly hair! I freaking love it.

You Liar!

A little break from all the naughtiness to do a photo challenge! Adam’s Photo Challenge came back for the month of June, and am I glad it was. The challenge was to recreate a scene in a movie or television show, and I have seen some amazing entries so far. I thought at first I’d do something from my favorite movie, Lord of the Rings – I have the ears after all, so why not pay tribute to Arwen. However, we all know that I’m not a little right in the head, right? . . .

My current obsession during this pandemic is 90 Day Fiance. I have watched previous seasons but not religiously mostly because I didn’t really watch a ton of TV. Getting a Roku tv in the office though? My downfall for sure, haha. I started Before the 90 Days this past season and Darcy was on it, which just reminded me of the first season she was on with Jessie, and this iconic scene. So, I went outside my normal purple hair comfort box and tried to recreate it. How did I do?

Do It Anywhere

Anywhere (Song Inspo)

Ok, for real. I promise the next blog I do with Drake will not have him in this top! It has just fit the mood for the last few poses. I mean look at this!

Imagine shopping with your lover, being so into each other that you can’t even wait to get home. You want them right there, right then . . . anywhere. The dressing room, the corner of a crowded dark club, the elevator going up to the hotel room. Surely we’ve all had that kind of innate need pulsing through us. I know I have.

A Good Assistant

Every hard working bossman needs an accommodating assistant to cater to his every whim, right? Someone by his side, supporting him, giving him an outlet for all those frustrations that come along with long, late nights at the office?

This pose scene from Something New has it all. The attention to detail was phenomenal, with even a water bottle sitting on the desk. It was literally hop on the ball, adjust it to fit our avatars (which was super easy) and then snap the photo. No arranging props or anything. I love full scenes like this cause it makes my lazy heart sing.

You can pick up this and all the other hot something New poses at Pose Fair After Dark. It’s definitely worth your while!

Music Inspiration Series – She Just Wants To Be

inspiration for today’s post

I’m gonna admit, I took inspiration to do this series from Trouble Dethly’s moments I regret series he is doing. While I have so many regrettable moments in my life, honestly the most defining things about me are my musical moments. So, I decided to recreate moments from my favorite songs, and the emotions they inspire.

“She Just Wants To Be” by R.E.M. is my first one. This song has been one of my top five defining songs for years. I mean, like most of my adult life. It’s my favorite CD, my favorite band, but this song specifically. “It’s not that she walked away, her world got smaller.” The words are so powerful.

I took that feeling of just wanting to be somewhere, anywhere, the feeling of growing too small where you’re at and feeling the wanderlust take over, and put it into an image. I hope you like it.

These Pictures of You

This is a story of love and loss. I chose this medium for my “hate” portrait for the Adams Photo Challenge mostly because it symbolizes the worst and best kind of feeling, the feeling of letting go after you lose someone important to you. 2019 started out as a year of loss for me. It started with losing my partner at the beginning of the year, and losing the people I held closest as family mid-year. However, after that I not only found kinship with a new, amazing group of people I’m proud to call family (I love you Anatines), I also learned to be with myself.

Do I miss the people I am moving on from? Yeah, sometimes, of course. When you care about someone you can’t just turn it off. I wish all of them the best. But, it’s also time to let that shit go and move on with life. Be ready to make new experiences and new mistakes. That’s where I am now. Leaving the hate and hurt in the past and moving on.

Reflections In the Morning

I’ve been on a musical hiatus for about two months, ever since I sliced my fingers open the day after Thanksgiving and had to get stitches. I saw this pose set at Shiny Shabby and was excited, that even if I can’t play in real life I can make it look like I can in SL. I found a little spot on our Idle Rogue community that was set up for quiet reflection and cuddles, and thus this photo was born.

Hit up Uber and I have to say, I find myself buying less and less. But this top was super cute and Sassy has once again killed it. It goes perfect with these pants, and hey – there’s a new mainstore Truth release so you know I had to go cop that real fast.

Today I have to start getting Relay for Life stuff more organized! If you are looking to help out and/or sponsor an event, please let me know!

Let That Ish Go

It’s been ages. The holidays really got me, with a myriad of health/injury issues, my dad coming and then going, traveling, and stuff leading into the new year which led me to the decision to close Stanza. It was a tough call, but I do feel more free now that I have less ties holding me down. One thing I wanted to come of that was more time to shop and take photos, and so here we are. I’ve done a few other photos but just not blogged them here.

It’s a new year, and at my age I’m not really into doing resolutions proper. What I’m more into is just trying to make positive changes, bring positive energy, and most importantly – let the bad shit go. That’s the hardest for me. Letting go of stuff – anger, hurt, resentment, grudges. I suck at it. I need to work on that this year, and I hope to take all my (few) readers on the journey with me.

As far as more shopping goes, well today was Epiphany Day. It was a mini round but holy hell, there were so many good things! I got lots of stuff for me and my friends, and even managed to turn a few in for points. I am still looking for Doe’s Becca the Baker with and without hats in Colors, so if you see one let me know.
