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
I’m dreaming away
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:

The danger of drifting: “Go away from me [and] leave me alone.”

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.

“Lay me down in sheets of linen / You had a busy day today”

I was thinking it’s been quite some time since I’ve written a moody post, but I checked and, of course, I was wrong. My posts are all about moods! I’ve been in a strange mood lately. It’s not strange to me, but I’m trying to express it in other ways. Unfortunately, it is not working as well as I expected because I feel like I’m an empty shell and just drifting through the day. Subsequently, I needed to get more than a few things off my chest. Instead of writing tons, I’ll just make a list. It’s in no particular order.
  1. I’m so disappointed in humanity lately that I fear the future.
  2. One of my dogs is afraid of fireworks and I wish I could help her.
  3. I want a challenge, but I don’t want to try anything new.
  4. All lives matter.
  5. I’m trying to get excited about opening a restaurant one day (long story but short insert for hubby’s benefit); however, I hate cooking and trying or inventing recipes, so I’m not sure what I’ll do.

“Just like fire…If I can light the world up for just one day”

If you aren’t into the Zodiac, you’ll probably moan and groan after my next statement. I love that I’m a Sagittarius! It’s a fire sign, of course! Whenever I am uncooperative (restless, unrealistic, superficial, or lose my verbal filter), I play the Sagittarius card. I used to own the best book called Darkside Zodiac. I traded it for Frida Kahlo’s autobiography, and I don’t know why. I was going to replace my old book, but I just found out there’s a new edition. Since it’s called Blame Your Planet: A Wicked Astrological Tour Through the Darkside of the Zodiac, it sounds like it’s right up my alley. I’m wearing

“Way up in the west hills” (not really, but it’s even better)

We finally settled in our new place. I swear, the older I get, the more moving physically hurts! This time, the hurt is worth it. I love our new home. I’m plotting how to decorate the place and make it a home as I type. Since I feel fancy, I decided to dress like high society as I plan. Styles by Danielle’s Monique is a succulent blend of satin, cashmere, and floral design that comes in shimmering and non-shimmering. I like to sparkle. Who doesn’t? It doesn’t matter if you like to literally sparkle on the outside or exude a sparkly attitude because both are beautiful. Monique in shimmering beige is a group gift, so now there’s no excuse to not sparkle on the outside. Dani Plassitz’s June group gift is the perfect combination of chic sparkles and Summer. There’s a small enrollment fee (200L) to join Styles by Danielle’s group, but all group members receive exclusive monthly gifts (see above ), a 30% discount on new releases, and tons of other on the spot group gifts and discounts. … Read the restMonique by Styles by Danielle

If you aren’t me, how do you know how I feel?

If this were real life, I would be screaming. I can only handle butterflies in SL. As beautiful as many believe they are, butterflies scare me. Relationships used to scare me too. I always felt like I loved too much and scared people off. While Twittersphere debates the authenticity of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston’s relationship, I felt compelled to say who cares. Let the girl get over her former relationship however she wants. I told my hubby that Swift’s lyrics, from many of her songs, were so relatable because I remember that longing and that hurt that came with every love lost. I recall one breakup where I tried to replace the man that I loved. A male friend came over and tried to get with me, but before anything happened, I tearfully told him I couldn’t because my former boyfriend was on my mind. When I see pictures of Swift and Hiddleston on the beach, one picture reminds me of my former emotion because I think Swift’s sad and Hiddleston is taking the moment. … Read the restLet go

March’s weather confuses me! First it’s windy, then it’s hot, then it’s cold and windy, and so on and so on. When I realized Pose Fair 2016 opened today, that totally brightened my day!

“And Somehow That Was Everything”

Have you ever woken up and thought that today was the day you had to make a serious change? I do all the time, and I usually go through my day as I normally do and think about changing tomorrow. This time, I woke up and did a little soul declutter. I’ve been carrying around an awful lot of doom and gloom lately. Frankly, I don’t know what brought on this turn, but I can’t say grumpy moods aren’t abnormal for me. If you want to declutter your soul, you treat it as though you’re decluttering your house, bedroom, office, closet, or anywhere you tend to toss in non-essential items. I spent the day simply enjoying the day by sitting outside in the sun with my two pups. I didn’t think about work, school, or the laundry I needed to do. Suffice it to say, I ended up doing my laundry, but I felt insanely refreshed by forgetting the past, ignoring the future, and living in the moment. As for my delicous SL wear, you can find Glitter’s Ocean Queen at Swank‘s February event “Fifty Shades of Red.” Credits:

Chasing Weiland: “It’s what made you who you were.”

Scott Weiland’s death devastated me. I grew up listening to Stone Temple Pilots. They were my first concert. In many ways, their music shaped the way I hear new music today, and, so often, a song builds my blogs. I heard “Plush” while driving to work today, and it brought back so many memories. There is the innocent interpretation of “Plush,” and that is merely how the lyrics compel me to sing along. Have you ever heard this song while observing Karaoke? My husband sang it at my work’s holiday bash and it was a favorite! Was it the lyrics that made my co-workers, and myself, sing along? “Where “Where ya going with that mask I found?” Perhaps, it is the connotation of trying to hide one’s true self, or one’s actions and motives, that makes others relate? This is me trying to figure myself out. It’s also an ode to my appreciation of Scott Weiland. He shall rest in peace, and I will call it a night and see what tomorrow brings.… Read the restWhere ya going with that mask I found STP
