I don’t believe in Black Friday. I can’t imagine withholding my need to buy whatever I want for one day a year. I believe firmly in wanton consumerism 365 days a year. I want everything. So I am an anomaly and don’t shop madly on Black Friday.
I feel bad for people who wait for this one day a year to splurge.
I decided today to do a very wee bit of house shopping, things I needed for my weekend and that was ok because I wasn’t in the mood for the stores anyway.
I came home to a very bad cat pretending to be part of my new foyer decor. Bad kitty! I love my new piece from Second Space though – I had forgotten it was new for COLLABOR88 this month.Ellie is so amazingly talented, almost everything she ever makes I want in my SLife.
This is no exception.
I’m trying out a new sofa from Cheeky Pea for UBER. It’s probably too big for my space but it’s fun and cozy.
Just remember while you are Black Friday shopping, two of crap is crap.…

l am back with a bevy of goodies from the current round of My Attic at the Deck, but firstly I must mention my skin which is a new group gift at Lumae. You get every tone in the pack, along with every applier you could ever want - and an added bonus for this redhead (usually) is that Lumiya includes ginger and red brow options and freckle options too.
My hair is one of the goodies from this round of My Attic at the Deck, and like everything during the course of the event, it is just 95L per hud. I have very little experience of enVogue but I love, love, love this wonderfully high and exquisitely coiffed updo - I will definitely be watching out for more from them. My dress and shoes are also available at My Attic, both from Fission and both in an array of colour choices. The final My Attic element in this post is the pose pack from Kirin which I had fun playing with.
Not at My Attic, but definitely worthy of a mention, are my necklace and earrings which are from Indulge Temptation and currently available in 7 different hud versions at Designer Circle.… Read the rest
A while ago I took my niece Livy to her
, and while we were there I thought it would be a good idea to take some Thanksgiving themed pictures because I wasn't sure I would see her for the holiday. And because I am all about cheesiness I made sure we had matching outfits. I will not even begin to describe the amount of shapewear I had to wear underneath to get this dress to fit. What can I say the only matching outfits I could find were in the kids department. Once I was trussed up and dressed like a turkey we headed outside to take some pictures. I got the camera all set up on the tripod and angled as best I could. I then scooped Livy up in to my arms and told her to say cheese. It seems the little trickster didn't like my smile and helped "fix" it.
She is just a laugh a minute I tell ya. I thought it would be good for Livy to write down what she was thankful for on an easel I found in the shed. I handed her a piece of chalk and got to setting up the camera for another picture. When I first walked over after adjusting the camera I saw she was thankful for candy.… Read the rest

When Morgana woke up the following morning she found a beautiful gown draped next to her. She has no idea who is was from or who had spotted her, but since it covered her much more than what she was wearing she put it on. Once dressed she spotted a ship in the cove below her, it felt like ages since she had been the captain of her own vessel.
She lusted after the ship terribly and was lost to her own thoughts. She was staring dreamily at the ship as a stranger approached. He said to her, "I see you are staring at my ship.", needless to say this startled her greatly as she did not hear his approach.
He didn't let on that he knew her to be the much famed Captain Morgana, but all good pirates knew who she was. He invited her to join him on his ship. Having few options available to her and with much caution she decided to join him. They sailed far from the archipelago that had caused her so much grief.… Read the rest
Long ago in a far away land there was a pirate who sailed the seas. She was the much feared Captain Morgana. One days she sailed her ship too close to an island in an archipelago and was captured by the king's Navy. These men had her caged and brought to the king. He then ordered the men to place her in a secret location in the castle. This is where the king kept his human prizes. He and the lords or his court would stare with their beady eyes at all the ladies kept there. Once a day a shaft of light would land on her cage and it allowed her to keep hope alive.
One day after the cage was cleaned the guard did not snap the lock tight on her cage. This was her chance to escape! She quietly followed the route she glimpsed the lords taking each time they visited the secret rooms. After some trial and error she was finally free of the castle. She allowed herself one moment to pause and breath deeply the sweet salty air of freedom before looking for a means to getting away from the castle.… Read the rest

Sometimes it’s the revisiting of words you’ve glossed over that reveals nuggets you hadn’t previously divined. You spin the words through your brain, and one time across them is different than the others. What’s changed? Not the words. The words are the same. But something in you caused them to give up a greater meaning than the last time you passed them by.
Words said by Gatsby, that great idealistic lover, seem to ring home to me lately. I hear them, both his logic and his dreamers ideal, and they feel more true than they used to.
Not that it means too much in the grand scheme of things, but maybe just thinking on things allows you to make peace how very odd things can be. After all, The Great Gatsby himself was quite odd, driven in all he did by a love he was trying to renew, or perhaps to just see if it was still alive.
Was Gatsby wrong? Was Gatsby right? I guess it’s a mater of opinion. He ended up dead. That’s not a spoiler you cretin, read a book some time ok?…

The Logo head has always been one of my favorites out there, the head really brings your avatar to life with so many expressions and eye movements. This Head is really the perfect head for taking pictures and now with the update they have made this head even easier to use. One of the best new features for me though is being able to put all 36 expressions on the main hud. Also being able to now change the makeup on the Omega Default Version using a 3rd party makeup applier. I am wearing the Izzie's Tiggi Head Applier and Makeup Applier Above.… Read the rest
