Roses and Me

I think I have a strangle love/hate relationship with roses. I’ve never been a big fan of them, because I found them quite commercial and too cliche’. My mother has always loved them and whenever she’s been able to have a garden, she has had rose bushes of various types over the years. I don’t particularly like the smell, nor am I all that fascinated with any type of botany, much less roses. My favorite flower has always been the Gerber daisy, they’re hard to grow (at least for me) and they don’t last too long in a vase either. Fake ones are never mistaken for real ones and I find them to be much more special and alluring. However, with all of that said, the older my mom and I get, the more I appreciate the things she loves…like roses. I don’t want to wait until she’s gone to appreciate something she loves. So, more and more, I’ve found myself smiling upon the sight if roses.

Though you can’t see them super well in the photo below, Dahlia did these amazing tins with roses on top for the Sept round of TLC. I was so excited by them, that I had to include them in this post. You can bet you will see them again and again, as they are the perfect touch for every room in the house.

LOL Challenge

Recently, Grace has given her closest friends the ultimate ammonition by telling us about a girl she works with that says, “El Oh El” whenever she thinks something is funny, instead of just laughing. That in and of itself cracked me up and we’ve not let her live it down. She really should’ve known better. However, let’s try to make each other actually laugh today.

Now,  we all know there’s always plenty of hate and drama in SL, so there’s certainly no need for more of that. We’ve even got some amazing folks on FB promoting positive energy and love. So, I’ve decided that since one of my absolute favorite things to do is laugh…I’m going to challenge each of my readers to share a funny video…wait, there’s one rule. No cats! I love cats, but anyone can find LOLcats on YouTube. So, that’s it…let’s share some smiles and make each other laugh. The video I’m sharing had me laughing out loud, by myself in the middle of the night. I was sure I was going to wake the neighbors. I honestly don’t know how this won’t make you laugh…so give it a shot.

Feel free to tag me on FB, Twitter, Google+, whatever social media you might use to share you video with others. Not only are you going share the best medicine in the world, but you’re going to have a blast doing it.

#lol #bestmedicine #funny #SadyStyleChallenge #Sadystika #video

Enjoy the video I’ve chosen here.

A Thousand Years

As much as I try, I cannot beat the power that music and lyrics deliver. So, here I stand again…letting someone else’s words speak for me….letting someone else’s melody deliver the message in my heart…even if no one is listening.

Christina Perri ~ A Thousand Years

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone?
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
One step closer
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Winning!

Thank you, Kiddo Oh!♥

Most of us have seen the SL Facebook and Flickr contests promoting new items with the like, comment, and share to enter requirements. I will do them to help promote creators, but I don’t expect to win. There are people in this world that are lucky and win lots of stuff…I had an aunt like that once. I’m not one of those people. If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have none at all. Until now! I won the Dead Dollz Arcade set from Facebook. Now when Kiddo Oh gave me my prize, she told me there was something special in the box for me. I couldn’t imagine what it was, but I figured maybe she threw in a gift card or maybe a special color. I never imagined it would be this! When you look at the photo below, you will see that she took my FB profile picture and created a wall texture that looks like a chalk rendering. I’m so over the moon with this entire set, but that wall made me squeal.I also wanted to show off the lingerie she put out for the latest round of FaMESHed. It just so happens that all this tied together perfectly with both the Clara office collection and the Clara closet collection from Silence. You can click on the photo below and it will take you to flickr where you can get a better look at everything. I can’t think of a single girl, especially bloggers, that wouldn’t be thrilled with this set. So…happy shopping and good luck…you never know…you actually might win after all!!♥

Let Me Go

This says everything I have to say and more…

Avril Lavigne – Let Me Go ft. Chad Kroeger

Love that once hung on the wall
Used to mean something, but now it means nothing
The echoes are gone in the hall
But I still remember, the pain of December

Oh, there isn’t one thing left you could say
I’m sorry it’s too late

I’m breaking free from these memories
Gotta let it go, just let it go
I’ve said goodbye
Set it all on fire
Gotta let it go, just let it go

You came back to find I was gone
And that place is empty,
Like the hole that was left in me
Like we were nothing at all
It’s not what you meant to me
Thought we were meant to be

Oh, there isn’t one thing left you could say
I’m sorry it’s too late

I’m breaking free from these memories
Gotta let it go, just let it go
I’ve said goodbye
Set it all on fire
Gotta let it go, just let it go

I let it go and now I know
A brand new life is down this road
And when it’s right, you always know
So this time I won’t let go

There’s only one thing left here to say
Love’s never too late

I’ve broken free from those memories
I’ve let it go, I’ve let it go
And two goodbyes led to this new life
Don’t let me go, don’t let me go

Don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go

Won’t let you go, don’t let me go

Whatever It Takes

It’s funny, I asked a friend of mine for help for something to write or at least a song to go with this photo. I have an entire list of songs that I often go to for inspiration, but I rarely go to the list AFTER I’ve taken a photo. He suggested this song and I quickly realized it was one of the songs on my inspiration list. So, my favorite part of the song is quoted below and the song itself can be found below the credits.

“Hypocritical, egotistical
Don’t wanna be the parenthetical, hypothetical
Working onto something that I’m proud of, out of the box
An epoxy to the world and the vision we’ve lost
I’m an apostrophe
I’m just a symbol to remind you that there’s more to see
I’m just a product of the system, a catastrophe
And yet a masterpiece, and yet I’m half-diseased
And when I am deceased
At least I go down to the grave and die happily
Leave the body and my soul to be a part of thee
I do what it takes”

Retail Therapy

After doing some minimal research on the Googlenets, I discovered that the average cost of one therapy session can range between $75-$200. That’s one hour to tell my problems to a stranger that’s going to turn around and ask me how does that make me feel? Nah, I’ll take my $200 for some shopping, because nothing makes me feel better than some retail therapy. I’ll tell my problems to the beautician, the nail girl, or the bartender like a normal person. *giggles*

Nothing Specific

It’s really easy to misunderstand what’s going on with other people, especially in a virtual world. So often the message depends on the perception of the reader and unless you’re adding a bit of an emote along with your words they can be easily misunderstood and thus the drama begins. What thing is for sure, there’s plenty of that happening across the grid. I think its one of the main reasons I like to voice. I don’t like my voice, but I do prefer talking to people when I can, because the inflections of one’s voice can really can make a world of difference. I realize I’m sorta rambling on about nothing specific here, but sometimes that’s just how my mind works.

Do You Believe In Magic?

When I was in the 4th or 5th grade, around 8 or 9 yrs old, I had a huge crush on Shawn Cassidy. For one thing, he was one of The Hardy Boys. If you don’t know who that is, I want you to go to google right this minute and educate yourself, because they were all the rage, along with Nancy Drew and the Bobbsey Twins. Why am I bringing this up? Well, around that same time, Shawn Cassidy had taken on a music career. Naturally, I had to have that album. One of his most popular songs was his rendition of “Do You Believe in Magice” originally by The Lovin’ Spoonful. When I was creating this photo, that song kept going through my mind and I was reminded of this baby blue silver jacket I had with Shawn’s face on the back. His face plastered all over my walls. I adored him. Finally, I can answer the question…NO, I do not believe in magic. *laughs*

Beyond Her Mask

“A charm invests a face
Imperfectly beheld,—
The lady dare not lift her veil
For fear it be dispelled.

But peers beyond her mesh,
And wishes, and denies,—
Lest interview annul a want
That image satisfies.”
― Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson
