Cos Freedom is a Lonely Road

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free. ~Jim Morrison Photo shot at Baja Norte It seems like I’ve been pushing myself so hard for four years. Four years on June 24th I’ve been here blogging nearly every single day. Three and a half years of spilling out my real life story. My life, it mirrors so many of my readers lives. After all, what are we but women (and a few men as well) living our life, insecure in spots, OK in others, striving for love, security, life, happiness, a chance to fall in love with ourselves and to awake one day and say, “you are OK, but I am OK too?” I found a love, I then lost said love. I’ve had some date disaster’s, some wardrobe malfunctions, a love-hate relationship with spanx, an accidental donation of my beloved B.O.B. to Good Will, a peek into the world of my mothers mind, the loss of a father and the realization that when I let it all go and gave up, I found the love I had always sought after, I decided to love myself and through my growth I found a mature adult relationship with a man.… Read the restPhoto shot at Baja Norte

Forever Isn’t For Everyone

“I don’t understand how I can know so little about love and how it works. How I can be so bad at it when it’s all I’ve ever wanted. All I’ve ever known is about leaving or being left.” ~ Carrie Ryan Background Planc Media.com Here’s to the people who pick up the pieces, dust off their knickers and forge on.

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

So naughty Goldi climbed the stairs to see what she could see, and in a room there are three beds as fresh as it could be. The first too soft, the second too hard but the third is perfect for me.

Originally posted on Cait's World: One of the things I have had on my wishlist in Second Life, was to have my portrait made by Skip Staheli. I’ve admired his work for ages and always enjoy his photo’s on Flickr.
Sure I can do my own pics, but I just wanted one of those beautiful portraits that Skip creates. Because I am vain like that. And I was curious on what he would ‘made of me’. So finally last week Monday, I got my one hour of being a real model while posing for him in his Purple Cows Studio! I was a bit nervous, not being used to pose like this..in front of a green screen and being posed by someone else.… Read the rest

Shoos: {Kokoia}, Mikonos . Pose: Katinks . 12,000L current bid on Skip Staheli pic. Last day to bid July 25th, 2015. It’s turning into a long hot summer for so many of us, hard to believe just a few month ago we were wishing winter would just pass us by. Personally, I love summer. Why? I like to estivate. You know, just lie really still, breathe more shallow, and let the warmth seep into your bones. Yeah, I’m kinda weird like that. Hope your weeks progressing with the enjoyment’s of summer!

You know I’m not inworld much anymore and I was actually invited into the Hair Fair early entrance group, I just wasn’t inworld when they were opening up the SIM. Anyways, as such, I’ve not made it to the SIM… Yet.

Almost… Here..

As a child, I was bonkers for Christmas. The entire month of December, I couldn’t sleep at night from anticipation. ~ Rosecrans Baldwin Hair: No.Match, No Drama *2015 Hair Fair* As an adult, I go bonkers for Hair Fair in Second Life. The entire month prior to the opening, I can’t sleep at night from anticipation.. ~Cao And it’s not just that I love hairs, yes I truly do! But it’s also the anticipation of buying something that will give to such a wonderful cause. Wigs for Kids is such a selfless organization I’ve donated my real life hair multiple times over the years. I’ve even enlisted the help of my 8 year old pirate princess in donating hers once too. Yeah, I’m kind of a purposeful Aunty Cao like that. With a little help from my friend EleanorJean, of EJ’s Closet I think I’ve decided on my “wager” for this years Hair Fair drive. I am going to auction a picture with me, theme of the winner’s choice by Second Life photographer Skip Staheli.Read the restNo Match No Drama

3 Days and Counting

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. ~ Desmond Tutu I noticed on the Second Life Hair Fair blog today that it’s almost time for the 2015 Hair Fair that benefits the charity Wigs for Kid’s. It will be held July 11th thru the 26th of this month. If you follow this —> link <— to the Hair Fair blog you can find all sorts of pertinent information, I know they had an application for blogger’s but even if you aren’t accepted as a blogger I hope you will feel it on your heart to blog or just buy from the event. We all love wearing Second Life hair, we buy it anyway, why not buy at a venue that benefits others? The real world charity Wig’s for Kids supplies terminally ill children with hairpieces when their ravished bodies lose their hair due to illness or treatment for terminal illnesses. Last year I blogged ten days in a row without hair and I have to tell you, it really surprised me, actually shamed me, how difficult it was to take pictures of myself without hair.… Read the rest19284033830_8aa20874a9_o

It’s incredible the “finds” involved with this event, I even went to some designer’s stores I hadn’t previously heard of just to explore what’s out there. I reckon, this Mix event might be a great way to introduce your product to a lot of new users. Just a random thought. Outfit
