Bring Me Flowers

What a week it’s been. This week we had to make the decision whether to send little nugget to preschool or keep him home. Ultimately, we got our questions answered by the facility and with the precautions they are taking plus the ones we are taking, we are going to try it for now. School starts August 12 and he is beyond excited for it.

The other day, Drake and I had a good, long talk and worked out some misunderstandings we had. I felt super confident and optimistic about the future, and then the next day he surprises me with an early birthday present – the Legacy body and a Mila skin for it (that’s out at Cosmopolitan right now)! I used the day of setup to also unpack and fix up my Lelutka Evo Nova 2.0 update which I absolutely love, and now I am over the moon.

It’s funny because I actually wanted to try the Legacy body, but was too lazy and noncommittal to ever get it going. Now? I have it, and I’m kind of in love with it. but if I wanna wear something in my Maitreya collection, I still have that body too, and my skin and everything works the same with it. So all in all, happiness.

New Rules

As I write this, I am a little more annoyed than I probably have the right to be, but they’re my feelings right now and I own it. I purposely deprived myself of much needed sleep so I could spend time with a certain husband, but the only thing I got was a big cup of coffee and tired. I am annoyed and this too shall pass, but right now, I’m a cranky pissant.

Since I was up early I did manage to blow through the Saturday Sales I had earmarked for purchase, and boy did I spend a lot! Yesterday’s Fifty Linden Friday had me going around more than I had in a good long while too, so kudos to the designers! Then I was so frustrated by the time I got home I dressed up sexy anyway and took this photo.

New Rules was playing on the radio getting me gassed up and turning my annoyance into anger, but I quickly got that under control and put irrational Cori back in the headspace she belongs in. I’m still annoyed, but I’m not raging. And that’s good enough for now. The rest will pass, hopefully sooner than later.

15 Years, New Heads, & Life

Today (as it’s past midnight) is my 15th rez day. I’ve been in Second Life for fifteen years and boy, have I seen some things.

I joined in June of 2005, coming here from a different sort of avatar based chat platform (seducity – does anyone remember that? Lawdy Jesus). Felicity and I were total noobs and of course the avatars looked much different then.

at Ice Dragon’s Playpen – MAN I miss Tringo!

I remember when I discovered live music. It was an amazing special time a few years later, and I fell in love with the scene. Back then there were hardly as many people and boy was the scene different. The talent was amazing, and it was lots of original artists who actually made livings off their sl performances. CQ was one of the ones I grew very close with, and I even managed his career in SL for a while. CQ’s recently come back and boy, am I glad. Our friendship has perservered over years, miles, misunderstandings and mistakes, and I am so proud to call this talented dude friend.

Me, Abi, Britta and Kenda, all at a CQ show together.

I was there for flexi prims, back when there was migration from system layers into sculpted and built items for clothing, and eventually when we evolved into mesh. Well, I take it back. I was on a “hiatus” when mesh actually came out. For a while, though, I was a creator of the cutest flexi clothing a linden could buy. Sweet Treats was born.

This was extra special right?

My life changed when was managing CQ during his second return to Second Life (we’re on the third coming right now, for those of you keeping track). He was performing at a place called Rhi’s Poem, on the Mai Tai Sim. The owner, Meegan, and I became fast friends along with her other right hand woman, Jinx. The three of us became inseparable and my love for them infinite. Jinx migrated from SL for a while, and Rhi’s Poem turned into Rhi’s After Dark, and then eventually moved to Idle Rogue and became an intricate part of that place. But for a while? I was helping run that shit. Then, I got pregnant in real life . . .

Back when the venue was brand spanking new!

After my most recent (which is like four years now) return to Second Life, I took up performing myself, and I still after all these years have amazing love for the Live Music community. You won’t find another group that is more uplifting, more caring, more friendly and ready to help and offer love. Is there drama? Of course. Is there bullshit? You know it. But in the end, the good so so outweighs the bad, and I am happy to be a part of it.

I love the friendships I’ve made here in SL. I love the connections, I love the growth I’ve experienced, and most of all, I love how I’ve grown because of it. I love you guys, and I hope you’ll come through the next 15 with me!

Since it was a special day, I treated myself to a new head since who knows what is going on with Genus. So, earlier today, I bought the Lelutka Nova evolution head and started learning Bakes on Mesh – I think I did ok, what do you think?

A close up head shot with my new head! featuring the cute Sady top from Chic Moda.

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!

Sharing Is Caring

Sharing is fun, right? Remember my earlier post where I did a fun scene with Abigail? Well Abi is actually the female alt of this dude right here. And this dude right here? Is the future Mr. Cori. or am I the future Mrs. Drake? Either way. Today we decided to play with my female alt to get the perfect shot. I think it went pretty well, and haha – Drake got a kick out of it.

My good friend Dante from Prestige Poses made this amazing threesome pose. In fact, a lot of his poses for Pose Fair After Dark are three-fers, which is nice and refreshing to see in a sea of solo and couple poses. Thank you for being different!

This was so fun to shoot and I thank my Drake as always for being patient with me.

Music Inspiration Series – Make You Feel My Love

inspiration for today’s post

March 11, 2018. A day that will live on in infamy, at least in my world. A spontaneous partnership done on a dare turned out to be one of the best and worst things I’ve done. It was something special that lasted almost a year, and I learned a lot of things about not only myself, but others around me. I was both the happiest and saddest I’d been in a good while. And here I am, 2 years later, talking about it still.

It was one of those things that absolutely was not meant to last, but while it did, the only word I can use to describe it is “magic” – the true kind of magic that comes only when you least expect it, knocks you off your feet, and leaves you bewildered when it’s all over. This song can instantly take me back to that moment, that one shred in time where I made a silly half-drunk decision that changed my life forever. I am a better person because I went through that journey, and I made a forever friend and have only the fondest memories.

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.

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!

Pause and Refresh

Man, Pose Fair got me in about a hundred ways this weekend. Here I was, taking a break from the amazing Freedom Rock event for RFL that the Anatines put on at Camp Anatine (raising over 300 thousand lindens for RFL!), but the Pose Fair, while having some amazing free gifts (and the group is free to join) also took a considerable chunk out of my budget. Plus side – I met someone just by talking to random people and getting out of my shell that will hopefully become a good friend! You never know until you say hi to that random person. Profile perving pays off! haha.

This cool backdrop was from Pose Fair, and the pose I’m using was a free gift. I styled it with some gifts and Saturday sale stuff and a few things I already had in my inventory, and here is today’s look! I’m totally digging this romper too. RL? No way but love the look in SL.
