“But my taste in music is your face”

  Thank Glob for music and husbands. Now, let me clarify my comment. First, I only have one husband, and I replaced God with Glob as a shout out to one of my co-workers. Secondly, musical lyrics remind me I’m not alone in my thoughts. I can’t be alone in that thought. Right? Ooh, I sound antagonistic, but that is only because I feel antagonistic. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ I’m wearing Outfit: L.A. BoS Cozi Dress  @ Designer Showcase Anniversary Round

RIP Dani Plassitz: “The heart does go on”

On December 13, 2016 RL and SL lost a life while Heaven gained an angel. Her name was Dani Plassitz. When I first rezzed into SL, I tried my hand at modeling and it was where I first came across Dani’s work as a fashion designer. Her creations were stunning designs filled with intricate details, and she used colors beautifully. She was dedicated to her passion for fashion. Dani also inspired models to push their boundaries. I distinctly recall a former colleague broadened her fashion horizons specifically because of Dani’s encouragement to be bold.  After all, we were in a world where everything was possible. When I left modeling to pursue blogging, she reached out to me as she noticed I followed her blog. I gladly accepted her invitation to join her blogger team because her style, creation, and exuberant personality were all one of a kind. Models Give Back walked in remembrance of Dani on January 8. As a testament to Dani’s creative genius, I am honored to use her last gown created for MVW Roberta Aulder in my last post as a Styles by Danielle blogger.… Read the restrip-dani

Freedom 17: Gotta have Faith

At this moment, I’m wearing Chop Zuey’s “Dream of the Rood.” Readers, sometimes life has to suck before it gets good, and that’s what “Dream of the Rood” means to me, but it’s okay. At the end of the day, we can triumph over our demons. I’m preaching now. Last year, I pinched a George Michael and Elton John collaboration for my blog’s inspiration, so hearing George Michael died left me a little weepy. In retrospect, what inspires us is a telling moment because it identifies the way we felt for but a moment. With 2017 about to roll in and my piece o’ land. in an odd place, I have no choice but to revert to my old ways. Have faith in freedom. Cheers!   I’m wearing

“Missing link on the brink”

The Cosmopolitan on Las Vegas’s strip turns one of their pools into an ice skating rink! I didn’t actually go to it because I haven’t skated since I was 12 or something. But it looked really cool from a distance! At twelve years old, I picked up ice skating fairly quickly. I mean I wasn’t amazing, but I could skate around the rink and not fall. Nowadays, I would likely fall on my ass more than skate. You’ll find my snuggly outerwear at this round of Designer Showcase. KC Couture’s tops come with huds, so you can change the textures. That goes for the earmuffs too! Click here for your lift to Designer Showcase. I’m wearing

“My head’s above the rain and roses”

So, I had an eventful week. I had a birthday. I went to a workshop. I learned that I’m a ‘get appreciated’ personality type (according to the workshop). Good stuff huh? Although, that’s not the most important take away from this week. I also learned I could pass for a real life Laurie should I ever want to change my name. The workshop dude thought my name was Laurie. When I first started working with one of my co-workers, she called me Laurie and called another co-worker Lisa whose name was Laurie. I know what you’re thinking because I thought about it for a bit. Unforgettable was my first thought, so I had to do some digging. I mean, my self-esteem was on the line! I decided a name is just a name. Sometimes, I don’t feel like a Lisa (my formal name is actually Alisa; huh lol), and I feel more like a Laylah. Then there are days I feel like Sunshine. I don’t feel like a Jasmine anymore, though. Those days are over. The moral of my story?… Read the restand-the-truth-thats-in-the-message

“Light of a Silhouette, [s]he’s insubordinate.”

I know many people are sick of the election and now that it’s over, I cannot deny it. The results devastated me. In fact, I haven’t been able to do much until now. Well, I have gone to work and all, but I mean my creative juices were shot because I felt as though  I was lost. If I ever told anyone to just accept the results and move on, I’m sorry that I didn’t realize how you felt until now. Indeed, it super sucks! So with the current agenda, I felt as though I was missing out on current events because I wasn’t an active Twitter user, so I decided to really understand Twitter after the results. I have concluded it pisses me off. It’s never been a social platform that was geared to me because of the character limit. The limit doesn’t piss me off, though. It’s the amount of bullshit, vitriol, and what the fuck moments  that spread like wildfires. And it pisses me off because it totally sucked me in. Not only on Twitter but chiming in on random articles that spoke to me.… Read the restsublimal-mind-trump-america

“When the darkness moves in and speaks of mystery.”

Dear Diary, It was a Sunday, the 30th of October. “The world as I had known was forever doomed. The shadows that had sheltered me were banished by the blinding light of scrutiny. I knew I was about to enter the gates of Hell. But like the inescapable pull of gravity, there was nothing I could do about it.” Dear Diary, I have seen my future and it is black and white and wrapped in silk. “I never thought my escape from darkness could be so complete. I found myself in the middle of a movie star’s palace. Elsa’s tent is the epitome of glamour. There is only one law here– the bigger the star, the bigger the tent. Glorious freedom. For the first time in my life, I dare to imagine myself surrounded by beauty.” SCALA™ presents FREAKSHOW – Carnivale and it’s on from now until November 13th.

“We are all born superstars…”

And it is up to each individual to make that a reality. Okay, it isn’t that easy, but it is the time of year where Halloween can help one be who he or she wants to be! I love Halloween for that very reason. Glitter’s Fierce Corset is waiting for you at October’s Swank event. I’m fiddling with the makeup by Alge’s Design. I’m having problems using the Omega applier. Some parts show up as bare. It’s not Alge, it’s me, so take that with a grain of salt. Just know the makeup on my face does not represent what could be.

“Don’t let me get me…”

It’s too late for a work night, so this means I have already had a bad start to my Friday morning if I internalize the past 45 minutes. The future can be scary. Sometimes I psych myself out and think more about work than I’m paid for.  Don’t get me started on what I think about life about on a daily basis because I cannot define self-inflicted silliness.

“Your hand is all I have to keep me hanging on”

The emotion is real, but the photo below isn’t reality. If it was real, I (Lisa Laylah) would be eye level with my husband (Kevin TacoLover). And the little cream chihuahua (Annabelle) would be loudly playfully barking in the tan chihuahua’s face (Loki). Image Essentials’ “Love Everlasting” couple poses are the first of three in Kay Weston’s series and available at Designer Showcase for 150L apiece. The poses are modifiable so had I decided to take my real life height into Second Life, I would be eye to eye with Taco. But, I’m short all real life day long, so I want to be an amazon in SL! Seriously, this set is really sweet. I love all poses, but sometimes I just want sweet, tender couple poses in SL that represent the vulnerability and faith real life relationships often have. @TacoKevin, I’m sorry I forgot to mention my new shoes. If it helps, they are part of my upcoming birthday plan. @Reader, if you made it this far, thanks for listening..… Read the restyour-hand-is-all-i-have-to-keep-me-hanging-on

“The Boulevard of Broken Dreams: I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies…”

So I’m reading clips from the first presidential debate, and it’s scary. Typically, I vote Democrat, but I am not opposed to voting outside of my selected party. Considering I’m not well versed in politics, I’m not trying to start a fight, but oh my gosh…if one was going strictly by that debate, America only has one reasonable choice, and that’s the scary part. When I first heard of Donald Trump’s plans to run for president, I told my hubby we had to get ready to vote for either Hilary Clinton or Trump in the end. Seriously, lol, I thought there was a secret campaign in that there was no campaign. Instead, Trump would be a hot mess, and there was no other choice but to vote Clinton, but the government was in on it. I know social media is a mainstay, so I can appreciate candidates using it as a platform, but damn, can you imagine if Trump was president and one of his Twitter wars led to World War III? Okay, that probably wouldn’t happen lol, but who knows anymore.… Read the restboulevard-of-broken-dreams

How to learn from experience II: “You look like my next mistake.”

Keep moving. Or do what I do and stick to the same pattern! Actually, it’s what I used to do. I wrote about Taylor Swift (TS) songs and one of my first heartbreaks in my last post, so I figured why stop now? Before I married the real love of my life, I dated. Some dates were casual and some turned into relationships like my two CKs. The two CKs in my life were very different, but they also had something in common. I went shopping all the time. Okay, that’s not the commonality, but I did shop a lot in those days lol. I was married to one CK. Think of TS’s song “Style.” That was us. Off and on and really (no really) bad for one another. As for the other CK, I can’t think of a TS song that represents that relationship. Maybe “I knew you were trouble?”  I was going through a really rough patch (divorce from the first CK and a legal thing), so the song doesn’t really describe all of my emotions. It’s probably more accurate to say it was TS’s monologue before the video starts.… Read the restYou look like my next mistake.png

How to learn from experience:”All [he] had to do was stay…”

This is a continuation of an earlier post.  My boss walked into my office in the middle of a Taylor Swift binge, so I shared why I appreciate her lyrics. I’m not sure he bought it, but I let him know that some of my favorite Swift songs have described some of my deepest and painful heartbreaks. Suddenly, I remembered heartbreak may be a natural occurrence. In an earlier blog, I wanted to save my younger co-workers from heartbreak, but that’s not possible. They need it. I had it, and my breakups were tragic at the time.  Fast forward > I ended up with my hubby aka love of my life. Really, I think I needed to experience love lost because I don’t think it would have worked had I met my hubby earlier. In a breakup, the tunnel seems bleak, but there really is light at the end. Of course, we can’t see it until we reach the end. The inspiration for this post was Swift’s song “All you had to do was stay.” It reminds me of my first heartbreak.… Read the resthow-to-learn-from-experience

#PokémonGoals

I wonder if my hubby would go for a Pokémon Halloween theme this year. I’ll be Pikachu, of course, and he can be the Pokéball. Or, he can be my trainer and just toss balls at me. That sounds slightly dirty, but, hey, I am married y’all. You see, I got sucked into Pokémon Go, and I really don’t know why.  I never played Pokémon. I knew of certain characters but that is only because Pikachu is so cute! So, I have become that person who pretends she’s engrossed in her phone due to a text, email, or news breaking story when I really just have Pokémon Go in the background.

The show must go on…

While many hard-working peeps are celebrating Labor Day, I am mourning the unofficial end of summer. Before too long, the sun will set much earlier and I’ll have to pull my sun lamp out of storage. Las Vegas does not get terribly cold, but the sun sets around 4:30 PM and that is just too early for my taste and for my moods. I think Blac Label Boutique feels my pain and can’t embrace the Fall season just yet. Blac Quartz has an exclusive piece for Designer Showcase’s September round. It’s called Savage and is business up front and party in the back. So, if you can’t let go of summer quite yet, be a savage and hold on to the sun as long as you can.

“Who knows why it’s gotta be this way”

Trying to understand the bigger picture is harder than it seems. In the past, I got so focused, I could only see what was in front of me, so I missed what I needed to see. Okay, I also ignored what I needed to see too lol. The mind can be so convenient at times. Right now, my mind is on top of it because I am getting better at seeing the whole picture. And right now, I understand that I was pretty much an idiot when I was younger, so I can’t blame my young employees for making the same mistakes I did. I wish I could save them. But such is life eh?
