Become or Retreat

There is an illusion about America, a myth about America to which we are clinging which has nothing to do with the lives we lead and I don’t believe that anybody in this country who has really thought about it or really almost anybody who has been brought up against it — and almost all of us have one way or another — this collision between one’s image of oneself and what one actually is is always very painful and there are two things you can do about it, you can meet the collision head-on and try and become what you really are or you can retreat and try to remain what you thought you were, which is a fantasy, in which you will certainly perish. -James Baldwin

Blogging works!

I am walking proof that blogging works. Just yesterday, I acquired some cute new purses, because I saw one of them on a blog post. I also discovered a new pose store. I mean, I dunno how new they are to the grid, but they’re new to me and that’s always exciting to me as a photographer. These pants I’m wearing were an item I saw at an event, but after I saw them in a blog post, I decided I had to have them. I have loved the backdrops from Paleto for a while, but after seeing one I didn’t have in a blog post…I went to their store. There I discovered that they had five backdrops on sale, all for less than L$100! I had to scoop them up! I can only hope that my blog inspires people to buy a few things from time to time as well.

Blogging works!

Fantastic Finds

Shopping in SL is clearly much different from shopping in RL, but I do my best to mix and match pieces from various brands to create a look that isn’t quite so cookie cutter. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with creating a look based on an entire outfit presented by the designer. Sometimes I really like going through different pieces much like I do in RL. Luckily, I can do this in SL without making quite the same mess. *laughs* You should’ve seen my bedroom back in the day. I mean, you wouldn’t see the floor. I was quite messy, but I knew where the clean clothes were vs the dirty clothes!

N-E-WAY! I fell in love with this new suede and lace skirt from Gaia, but I wasn’t ready for the adorable camisole top that matched it. Of course, I got it. I’m saving that for another look, ok? Lucky for me, Breathe just released these amazing suede boots that really helped me achieve a warm cozy outfit with the perfect pinch of pink!

For the scene, I did something I thought was cute. I took these posters I had from ionic and added my own textures. Well, technically they belong to Lucky Conundrum, as he created them for Burrow Company. I just thought it would be neat if the posters actually advertised something inworld. So, a shoutout and a big thank you to Lucky for allowing me to use his posters for my scene. ♥

My 80s Look

This past weekend, I left my blogging haven aka my platform, and I went to two parties at Burrow Company! Yep, two!! I was in a great mood and for good reason. There were two 80s themed parties. Okay, the first one was a DJ set by my gorgeous, talented friend, Phen (who also happens to be a blogger). She played songs from 1980 and it was so much fun! The best part is that I was totally ready for Harlow’s big 80s party later that night, so I was able to rock my Madonna look at both parties. (If you clicked Madonna’s name there, you’ll see my inspiration.) I knew other people would do lots of bright colors, but that’s not really how I remember the 80s. So, I wanted to go for one of Madonna’s edgier looks.

I knew I had everything I needed in my inventory and I’m rather proud of how it turned out. I mean, its not an exact replica, but that’s not as fun as using a pic for inspiration, anyway. So, all the details are below and in honor of my friends, Harvey & Harlow Holiday, I’ve added a little song at the end. *grins*

Both parties were a blast and I can’t recommend a better place to hang out to chill, to explore, to take photos, but they also have some pretty epic events (big & small)…so while I’m giving this massive shoutout to Burrow Company, I want to make sure my readers know that there’s a huge Valentine’s Masquerade Ball. Click the link for details and I hope to see you there.♥

Neutral

Matching shoes to outfits is often one of the curses we face in the fashion world. However, when it comes to matching an outfit from {le fil casse}, I know hands down that Breathe will be my goto for shoes. Their color palettes are very similar and if all else fails, you can find that perfect neutral color at Breathe. I still remember the first pair of shoes I bought from Breathe back in the day. They were a neutral tone with a big buckle at the ankle and I wore those shoes a lot! I’m all about some neutral tones from head to toe. Both of these brands are amazing for that.

It’s hard to show in a still photograph, but I did my best to show the glitter on the dress. However, what you don’t see is that this glitter sparkles! Not like bling. Don’t be silly. Jacinda has infused some sort of moving glitter magic on this dress and it is wonderful. I mean, who doesn’t love shiny, sparkly dresses?!?!?

One more quick little shoutout. Valentine’s Day is around the corner, but not all of us have a romantic interest, much less a Valentine. No matter what side of the V-day coin you relate to, there’s a coffee cup for you at Burrow Co. You can see my favorite in the photo, but if you click the link you’ll see all three. Naturally, I had to put Rezz Room’s chihuahua in the photo, cuz if you’ve been to Burrow Co., you’ve probably met Gus the resident coffee house mascot. There’s so much to see there, so drop by, grab a cup of coffee, and explore the sim. ♥

Fake Bitch

I’m so fucking happy all time 
Also, I’m really good at telling lies 
My friends they always call me for advice 
But they don’t know 
I’ve been crying 
For the past seven nights
This happens every single time I’m drinking 
Like I can finally hear the thoughts
I’m thinking
And it’s oh so clear 
Make a bee line to the bathroom and
I look into the mirror saying 
Fake bitch, fake bitch 
Running from her problems
But she makes it look so good when she ignores them 
And she puts them on a shelf 
And she whispers to herself 
It’s okay, bitch 
Don’t ever change, bitch 
La la la la la

I wasn’t always like this

I’m a nightmare, I know what you mean by that
I can’t wake up from all these scary dreams I have
I don’t really care, and I never will
That’s the way I am, such a bitter pill
I don’t really care, how much silence kills
That’s the way I am
No, I wasn’t born without a heart
I wasn’t always like this, no
Watched you break me, no
Now you blame me
No, I wasn’t born with all these scars
And that’s what made me like this, no
Can you blame me, no? (No, oh, oh)
I wasn’t born like this
Hurt people, hurt people
I’d rather be heartless (Heartless)
Than have my heart in pieces

I wasn’t always like this

I don’t take any regret

I take as much as I can get
I don’t take any regret
I close my eyes to conjure up something
But it’s just a faint taste in my mouth
I think I’m coming down
I think I’m coming down
By tomorrow I’ll be leaving
By tomorrow I’ll gone
If you want to tell me something
You had better make it strong

I don't take any regret

Green Light

I do my makeup in somebody else’s car
We order different drinks at the same bars
I know about what you did and I wanna scream the truth
She thinks you love the beach, you’re such a damn liar
Those great whites, they have big teeth
Hope they bite you
Thought you said that you would always be in love
But you’re not in love no more
Did it frighten you
How we kissed when we danced on the light up floor?
On the light up floorBut I hear sounds in my mind
Brand new sounds in my mind
But honey I’ll be seein’ you ‘ever I go
But honey I’ll be seein’ you down every road
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it
‘Cause honey I’ll come get my things, but I can’t let go
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it
Oh, I wish I could get my things and just let go
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it

Road Trip to Nowhere

Have you ever just wanted to get in you car and drive with no destination in mind? I have and I’ve done it more than once. Of course, the problem with that is….eventually you have to stop for gas and by that time, you’re God knows where. Fortunately, there’s GPS on most phones these days. If you’re lucky you’ve got cell service wherever you’ve landed and can find your way home.
Most of us have responsibilities and loved ones that simply don’t allow us to do such a thing without hurting someone. Annnd, let’s be fair, the whole idea loses it’s appeal if you have to call and explain to someone that you’re trying to run away, but not forever…you’ll be back…eventually…
Yeah, that goes over like a ton of bricks. Trust me, I tried that way. You have to explain to someone why you feel the need to do this and by the time you’re done explaining it. Yeah, the whole idea is just ruined. Don’t even get me started on the fact that when this idea strikes, you’re never prepared and packing a bag takes so much away from the spontaneity.
I guess as we grow older and…*grumbles*…more mature. Ugh. We tend to realize what a mess can be made from a random road trip to nowhere. When I was younger and didn’t depend quite so much on medications, this was something I’d do. There were no cell phones (yes, I’m that old, fuck off) and by the time you stopped to get gas, you could justify not calling on the lack of working payphones.
