Over the sea there dwelt a queen whose like was never known…

for she was of great strength and surpassing beauty. With her love as the prize, she vied with brave warriors while wearing EEc’s Freydis, a luxurious gown, at throwing the javelin, and the noble lady also hurled the weight to great distance and followed with a long leap; and whoever aspired to her love had, without fail, to win these three tests against her, or else, if he lost but one, he forfeited his head.  EEc’s “The mountains from which we came” Freydis is a stunning gown. Its strapless corset bodice, off the shoulder sleeves, and long A-Line skirt with train embraces feminine curves. Use the applier to add a modesty top, as I have done, or bare your lovely décolletage. Leather embellishments on the sleeves gives the impression of power. The woman who wears this gown is one to be reckoned with. In case you haven’t heard, Unmasking A Cure Relay For Life Team (#38) is going medieval on cancer! The opening day was yesterday, but you have nearly a month to visit The Third Annual Medieval Faire as it runs from now through June 18, 2017. … Read the restwhose like was never known

“Joy’s soul lies in the doing.”

Yearning for Medieval fashion all in the name of a worthy cause? William Shakespeare once wrote”There’s a time for all things” and the time starts now.” Actually, the time starts May 19th. Unmasking A Cure Relay For Life Team presents the Third Annual Medieval Faire and it runs from May 19th though June 18th. If you haven’t heard “Women speak two languages – one of which is verbal” (Shakespeare). The other is fashion, in this case, and sometimes we have to hunt for it. JMK‘s hunt item for the Medieval Faire is undeniably romantic with a full skirt, strapless bodice, and flowing sleeves and a slow cascade of pastel colors. I can’t tell you where to find JMK‘s Duchess Thistle Gown, but I can say it’s worth it. If your body choice includes Maitreya Lara, Belleza Venus, Slink, Hourglass, or TMP, you are literally covered. If you haven’t joined the mesh body club, don’t fear.… Read the restUAC Medieval Faire

Destroy illusion and put truth in its place

So, I sat in my husband’s man cave for a bit. After sitting for a while, I starting organizing it. Mind you, I didn’t literally organize it. I just sat and wondered how I could recreate that essence of mine in my own setting. While I have my own space, I realized I couldn’t recreate what I envision in my head without spending massive amounts of money remodeling it, so I appreciated the simplicity of my hubby’s room. It’s filled with what’s important to him. Now I need to figure out what is important to me in my room even thought it really wouldn’t match the connecting rooms.  No, I can’t think that way. Actually, I can’t stop thinking that way. Character flaw? In my defense, it doesn’t help that the kitchen is right behind me. And the dining room is to my left. I could add my own touches to both I suppose, but kitchens and dining rooms don’t inspire me lol. Maybe I need to dare to dream. “What is meant by “reality”?Read the restLock up your libraries if you like.jpg

“Do you have the time to listen to me whine?” No? Fair enough.

I jest about the whining. Well, I do whine quite a bit, but time is valuable, so if one doesn’t want to hear whining, he or she can shut it off. Tonight I’m mostly whining about the end of one of my favorite SL events. That’s right. Pose Fair is over. Did you have a good time? I’m going to take a moment to give a shout out to all the pose creators. Thank you for taking the time to inject life into SL! Movement implies life and that in turn suggests emotion.While avatars are not alive, the people behind  the keyboard are most definitely living and breathing creatures. Incidentally, I’ll always remember my first experience with animation in SL. I actually thought the default Ruth stand was cool because it was different and it looked like a confused chick. Now, it’s kinda irritating, but only when I’m in the midst of making a pose work. Now, look how far SL has come! I can’t imagine SL without Project Bento now, so pose makers, keep those poses coming!… Read the restMy mind is set on overdrive

Inhibited, limited: Nevertheless, she persisted.

When in doubt, persist. Allyson Dwyer, Something New pose creator, captured an emotion that can only be described as persistence. Well, at least for me. What does it describe for you? After all, motivation is subjective. What drives me, may not drive you and vice versa. Moonbeam is a Pose Fair 2017 exclusive. While it only holds one animation, the stories are endless.

April 22:”What comes next, I see a light.”

How’d you spend Earth day? I had the best day! My physical results are the starters of a farmer sunburn (eventual tan), but there’s so much more. Sadly, emotional results are left to interpretation because they’re difficult to quantify. Just believe okay? Nevertheless, I’ll try to explain. Hanging around people with similar goals is fun. It’s easy. My local #ScienceMarchLV was actually a rally, but marches and rallies aren’t just marches and rallies. They’re marathons because the finish line requires endurance. I may or may not be preaching to the choir, but take it for what it is. My thoughts are my sole responsibility, yet I love to share. Me:

I do. Do you?

It’s safe to say we can all agree marriage is a commitment that goes beyond a typical relationship, even long term common wealth relationships. I just realized filing taxes as a married middle class couple sucks. I miss 2016 tax filing time. Anyway, married couples do have something our common wealth counterparts do not. Weddings! Chop Zuey’s Sub Umbra Floreo Bridal is the perfect piece to add that last and perfect final touch to any wedding gown. If you’re going to commit yourself to filing married, you might as well start it off in style, ya know? No second thoughts. It’s too late! Divorce only works when one stops loving his or her partner in marriage. Plus, I joke. I’d much rather have my hubby than tax perks (See RL husband? I love you so much I wrote about you in my SL blog. Bonus points?) So, that’s my advice for the day. I also advise you to visit Designer Showcase and Pose Fair as soon as possible because April is going to end.… Read the restI do

Down the Rabbit Hole: A Beginner’s Guide

When it comes to new challenges or adventures, sometimes you have to go for it all alone. Here’s my journey in a nutshell. FOXCITY gave me the narrative and I’m just running with it! FOXCITY is one of my new go to pose makers for Bento poses.  At this year’s Pose Fair, Satomi Masukami didn’t disappoint. I’m a sucker for emotional poses along with props and appropriate backdrops. After all, I’m telling a story. What inspires you? If you haven’t thought of anything, think about it. My inspiration in RL and SL comes from what grabs my interest and many times it comes from the web. If you are inspired, are you alone in your quest? That’s okay. You’re not really alone. Other like minded people are right there with you. I’m right there with you. We just have distance in the way. Close your eyes and prepare for your trip down the rabbit hole. Liquid courage is acceptable, but don’t depend on it.… Read the restI whisper things, the city sings 'em back to you

Do you want to know a secret?

Sometimes I can’t sleep. Okay, I know. That secret sucks because it isn’t salacious or juicy. If it helps, my secret may be your secret. When insomnia hits, we may have a lot on our minds. See? You aren’t alone. If you have Pose Fair on your mind, you are definitely not alone. Animations breathe life into our Second Life personas. So…are you  ready? Pose Fair starts Friday, April 14th at 12pm SLT, and it runs till April 29th. I’m giving you a sneak preview into what to expect, especially if you are a fan of WetCat. “Daddy’s Girl” Bear Prop offers 9 single pose options and 6 couple pose options. If you want, change the teddy bear’s coat with 7 choices. “Cyber-Link” WebCam Prop, below, is available in naughty and nice. After all, life fluctuates between PG and R (or XXX in some cases <3). I have to warn tall avatars, though. I’m very short in RL, so I like to go to the extreme opposite in SL.… Read the restI am numb

And so it begins:”How can I protect something so perfect without evil?”

Sometimes we do what we gotta do.  For what it’s worth, I am not condoning evil. Simply put, evil is in the eye of the beholder in some of its most dubious cases. Someone once told me I was evil because I made up an elaborate lie to avoid inviting someone to a party. Evil? No. Immature and stupid? Sure. Yup. Sometimes we do what we gotta do.   Credits:

When in doubt,”try to live in a lovelier light.”

I’ve lived in two states: Paranoia and Delusion. Lol, no I’m kidding (kinda). I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada a few years ago and the weather conditions aren’t that extreme, unless you consider Las Vegas in the summer and I’m putting that off as long as I can. Right now, Las Vegas is so cold right now and windy as hell! I can’t imagine living through a hurricane or tornado. So, I painted a picture of what I wish it was like. Blue skies, flowers, piano music playing in the background, and one gorgeous dress. Glitter’s Liz mesh cocktail dress bridges the gap between red carpet glamour and girly appeal. Liz is a new item for Swank’s March round, so if you haven’t been by and you love glamour and girly, I highly suggest you TP to Swank before it’s too late. Need a lift? Click here.

“Worldly comfort is an illusion.”

Dear sister: I hate to break it to you, but there is usually a bigger picture. It goes beyond he said she said scenarios too. It’s literally opening up one’s perspective and it ain’t always fun. Trust me. If things seem wrong or dangerous, they probably are. Broaden your scope. Once you broaden your scope, you’ll see the bullshit for what it is because “worldly comfort is an illusion” (Mirabai) in your particular case. Now once you do, it’s your turn. It’s your turn to walk away from what deceived you in the first place. Emotional wars are exhausting, and sadly so many, including me, fight for the wrong reasons. You probably won’t read this. One, you don’t have a blog and two, you probably forgot about my grown up virtual Barbie doll games/online journal. If you do, know I love you and I will be there when and if you need help walking away. Love Always, Your Sister Credits:

Out of body. Out of mind.

Spring is my favorite season. Though, I could do without the wind. It’s been said when March rolls in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb, but in Las Vegas, they like to keep us on our toes. I shouldn’t complain. Compared to other states, NV’s weather may be perfection. Have you been to Designer Showcase‘s March Round? It also rolls in for bang each month. March brought in a brand new build along with new items. PurpleMoon Creations‘ Amberly Dress is one of those items. It’s almost like a make your own adventure story. Remember those? If you don’t, it’s easy. You make choices and find out the consequences. In this case,  the decisions won’t get you in trouble. Instead, you’ll find the colors and patterns that suit your mood for the day with the all choices Hud. Want to see? Click here for your lift to Designer Showcase. I’m wearing:

Modern Conflict: “Daddy’s little psycho and Mommy’s little soldier.”

In case you were interested, my own private drama involves a lot of stretching (and fidgeting, twitching, rubbing my face, and playing with locks of my hair). Speaking of private drama… I’m an adult and then some, but I noticed my parents still view me as a child, so when we talk, I feel like I’m back at home. Some things never die. My dad thinks I’m silly (it’s called liberal nowadays in my dad’s head lol) and my mom believes I’m fighting for the greater good. Love them both because they are both right. Now, down to business !

Probable Cause: “It’s where my demons hide.”

It’s time for catharsis. Although I should treat my home to a massive and literal spring cleaning, my mind and soul take precedence. Because in order for the literal spring cleaning to work, the actual laborer has to feel like he or she is in the mood. In this instance, the laborer is me because it’s my journal, but surely I’m not alone? If I’m not, wash all the angst away. There may be remnants of psychological ew tomorrow, but every cleanse needs a second day.  Trust me. I do this every season. It doesn’t last all year, but it might for you!   Thankfully, shopping is timeless. Designer Showcase is a monthly fashion event that features exclusive designs by all types of designers across the grid. If you love short skirts, sweaters, stockings and boots, Entice’s Sweater Girl and Shoes may be a perfect fit. Try on the demo at Designer Showcase. Click here for your lift to Designer Showcase.

Passion is contagious; “It’d be safer if you ran.”

Even though it’s probably way sexier, I don’t mean romantic passion. I’m talking about what motivates us and I’ve realized I can be kind of bossy when it comes to my idealistic ways. Because I am far from perfection, I should probably steer clear of that anyway. But…I can’t help but think every one of us can make a small difference and make a mark.
