What Resolution?

I’m trying to lose weight in RL, y’all. I need a knee replacement and before they touch me I gotta lose a ton of weight. However . . . Having a house full the last couple of weeks has proven that to be difficult, because I like cooking for people and barely get to do that when it’s just me and baby man. So I’ve been splurging. Last night I made a bomb lasagna from scratch! Eating leftovers today. So, flipping through all the various food props I have in my inventory today, I decided to take one with this setup to demonstrate how I’m feeling right now, haha

Like I said in my last post I really am not a resolution maker, but I am trying to get some weight off to get my knee fixed. I’m not backsliding, I’m just stalling because I’m giving myself some time to enjoy life with rl. And that’s ok. So as far as my outfit goes, can I just point out how cute this top is? Sassy’s done it again. I love argyle and I have a soft spot for hers, for sure. She’s a genius and you should check out chic moda if you haven’t. Group join fees are super cheap and it’s totally worth it with free gifts nad lucky letters.

Twinkle, Twinkle . . .

This has been my first photo in what feels like forever. I want to talk about some stuff going on in my life, but first I should update – I went on a week vacation to Ohio to visit with my family and got back last Thursday. Friday afternoon I was in the ER and subsequently in the hospital with massive kidney stone that took two total procedures over the course of a week to get me back to better health. I’m doing fine, and coming back to do my first show in 2 weeks here in Second Life. Things are finally (physically and RL) returning to normal.

Two days ago I lost someone that was very important to me. It was in the same fashion as I’d seen her cut out other people when they failed to offer anything she needed, and looking back I realized that there was a lot of using going on, so I’m going to be okay with not having that “support” in the future. The thing that I do have, is a group of absolutely wonderful people I can lean on at any time and we would do anything for each other, so the loss of someone so fake and sad isn’t going to hurt me in the long run. This will be the last time I publicly address this, so if for some reason she sees it, she can just keep me blocked cause there’s no going back from the shit she put me through. =)

C88 was full of galaxy and stardust stuff for their anniversary, but this “Twinkle” deco was too much to pass up since that’s the nickname that Troy has for me. So, this photo is really for him and to thank him and my management team for putting up with me and supporting me daily. I love all of you so much!

Growing Pains

I have been having a crazy RL and between that and trying to keep up with my live music shows in Second Life, I haven’t had a whole lot of time for posting to the blog. I’ve been thinking about maybe making this a collab with one or two other people, but we’ll see. I do have some photo challenge stuff I’m posting soon, so look out for that for sure. This right here was inspired after a series of events. First off, The Arcade dropped on June 1 and while there wasn’t really a whole lot I had to have (and I got super lucky on a lot of plays), this BAMSE SoundX set was something I wanted ALL of it. And I got it!

I got informed that the sim we live on is going beach style after my SL mom’s wedding there, so I started getting my stuff in order for beach themes. That also included putting down a new house. I went with the Redgrave Lakeside after a long time of deliberation and demos. I’m not fully done decorating it yet, but it’s getting there. This was taken in my music room, where I set up my BAMSE set plus a few other random things. I love the way it turned out and just like to spend time there. I know it’s not real recording equipment, but it’s a happy SL space for me and that’s all that matters!

Soaring

I have a male alt. I dressed him pretty because no guy I’ve ever dated has ever really suffered well through photos. I decided to actually put some of these couples poses to use and snap a photo with my pretty boy.

I’ve had a really rough week and a half, but I am finally coming out of it. I just really want to thank everyone for their thoughts, good wishes, prayers and otherwise being generally awesome while my RL fam gets through this awful time. I really love everyone that has checked in on me and supported and loved me as much as y’all have. Thank you again, really, from the bottom of my heart.

Ride it . . . My . . . Pony?

I had a joke with a friend about me taking photos with bananas. I quickly that night found on on marketplace and took a funny photo. Imagine my amusement when I saw this at Limit8 this go-round! I decided it would be mine. It’s kind of sad actually. I worry I’ve done the majority of shopping I’m going to do in Second Life because everything’s just been done twenty or thirty times and I’m like, I have two versions of this. Do I need another? Is it that varied? and then I just don’t even buy it.

Also, I have added Izzie’s freckles applier to face and body and I think it looks even better. I’m a fan of freckled Cori and the skins I’ve been using lately don’t have freckled options. So, making my own!

I do not have a show until Friday this week! So I’m going to use the time off to do some more pictures, build some scenes, decorate a Linden house, I don’t know what else. Maybe visit some scenic routes!
