“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. Click here for a lift to Swank and join me in the countdown to Halloween.

“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?

“Remember that there’s someone there whose heart is always true…”

So hubby, “I’ll always be the man in love with you.” Um..woman. You know what I mean. Readers, you probably do not, so let me take you back to Christmas 2015. In 2015, my husband and I celebrated our first Christmas as a married couple so I was on the lookout for cutesy commemoration gifts to throw under the tree. Hobby Lobby had the cutest mugs in the checkout aisle that read “I heart my husband” and “I heart my wife.” Initially, I grabbed the heart wife mug for a gift, but I rethought that decision while standing in line. It was almost Christmas so that line was long. I decided it was too presumptuous to expect my hubby to drink out of a mug that proclaimed he loved his wife. After all, since it was a gift, I should demonstrate my love for my husband right? So, I purchased the “I heart my husband” mug as a gift for my new hubby. On the drive home, I pictured my husband drinking from that mug. It wasn’t what I imagined lol, so my mug purchase has been a running joke ever since.… Read the restRemember that there's someone there whose heart is always true

Oops, I did it again: A Prozac Stipulation

Have you ever felt like you won the battle? I have. Have you ever realized that the battle only exists in your head? The odds must be in my favor because, again, I have. Though, I should warn you. Winning a battle that was basically created in your head is satisfying, but a lonely experience if you need attention. Prozac does not solve everything. You see my problem is this

Wishing that heroes, they truly exist
I cry, watching the days
Can’t you see I’m a fool in so many ways[?] Yep, I’m a fool in that I want a hero (aka my hubby) to save me because I know at the end of the day, I have to save myself. Since I am the one who makes up my battles, it’s only fair, right? I’m wearing:

This is what happens when I listen to 90’s music all night long. Total angst. Surely, I’m not the only one this happens to…right? I’ll have to test my hubby tomorrow. Stay tuned for results! Actually, he’ll never go for that. When he drifts, he listens to old country, and I can’t go for that lol. At least we have nothing but time, and when you think about it, time is everything.
