That’s alright, that’s okay

So I never really knew you
God, I really tried to
Blindsided, addicted
Felt we could really do this
But really I was foolish
Hindsight, it’s obvious
Talking with my lawyer
She said, “Where’d you find this guy?”
I said, young people fall in love
With the wrong people sometimes
Some mistakes get made
That’s alright, that’s okay
You can think that you’re in love
When you’re really just in pain
Some mistakes get made
That’s alright, that’s okay
In the end it’s better for me
That’s the moral of the story, babe

That's alright, that's okay

She would shine

“She was like the sun,
She knew her place in the world –
She would shine again regardless
of all the storms and changeable weather
She wouldn’t adjust her purpose
for things that pass.”
― Nikki Rowe

This post is all about Bloom by Prism Events. I have been blogging for Prism Events…well, for years. I absolutely love the three events they put on throughout the years. Bloom is all about Spring and this year, with Easter around the corner, we’ve got an abundance of cute Easter themed items, as well. Don’t get too overwhelmed thinking that these items will only work for Spring, though. As you can see by the photo, I’ve created a summer theme using the gorgeous house from Concept that you can acquire at the Arcade. If you want to see more of the house, I did two posts about it earlier this month. You can see those here and here.
I grabbed this hair weeks ago during a Fifty Linden Friday and then yesterday Cynful released silky textures on their Buttoned Tube Top. Knowing Cyn, it’s probably still out so hurry! The rest just kinda fell into place as I was looking around at the different items I’d collected from Bloom. All in all, I’m really pleased with how my photo turned out. I hope it will inspire you to create some wonderful Spring & Summer spots of your own, or at least a cute outfit…cuz these shorts…*bites her lip*…they are sooo cute!!!!

a beautiful conversation about life

I was hanging out with some of my favorite people last night and one of them made a comment about “lazy homeless” people. I quickly jumped on the defensive. As I have been homeless on a number of occasions in my 20s and there was nothing lazy about my situation. Of course, I encountered loads of other homeless people during those times. I had to explain that while there are some people that simply don’t want to be responsible members of society. However, the bulk of the homeless people I encountered were anything but lazy. As being homeless is not an easy way to live. People that live in shelters must abide by an excess of rules put in place to keep things as orderly as possible. There are curfews and requirements one must continuously make to continue their stay and many shelters have limitations on how long people can reside there. I don’t have specific numbers, but I’d dare say that the majority of homeless people have not chosen that lifestyle as their preferred method of existence. Plus there are far more living without shelter. That is NOT an easy way to live. Its beyond dangerous. Once a person is homeless, it is safe to say that getting back on your feet is ridiculously hard. As I pointed out to my friend, what is the first thing you do the morning of a job interview? Shower, right? If you have no home, you have no shower and probably don’t have much in the way of a clean nice outfit to wear.
Anyway, the point is, don’t be so quick to judge people in situations you can’t begin to understand. Turns out that one of the other people there had also experienced homelessness and was glad that I spoke up. Meanwhile, our uninformed friend was enlightened and apologized. I didn’t find the apology necessary, but it was appreciated. I was especially glad that we were all able to have such a beautiful conversation about life without hate or disgust. I won’t name them, because too many private matters were discussed and only my part of the story is mine to tell. I suspect they might read this and because they might I want to give them to know something. I love you and I’m so grateful for your friendship. I look forward to getting to know you even better in the years to come. ♥

Clearly that has nothing to do with the photo. So, I’d like to add that if you have not gotten the Spring Decocrate, this set from Serenity Style is worth getting it, just for this set. Even if you didn’t pre order it, its worth the price. Go grab yours. I have to pay full price, too, cuz I forgot to pre order…lol. You’ll also notice I’m wearing the new Lost Girl dress from Vinyl. This is the first dress Vinyl has released in ages and its so cute! AND it goes perfectly with these new wedges that Breathe released at the Arcade! So get out your wallets, its time to go shopping!!

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

Get right to it

If you want it, we can get right to it
Mix some vodka with some OJ
Skip the mornin’ and let’s get right to it
Put your hands on my body
Me and my friends poppin’
No we don’t need no man to be gettin’ on down
Know how I like it
Like it
Don’t need no excuse to be going this ham
We’re bumping KC and the Sunshine Band
That’s the way I like it
Like it
Sippin’ so much Goose that you could call it geese
Sippin’ so much Goose that you could call it geese
Feel like I can fly when you are next to me
Feel like I can fly when you are next to me

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.♥

They’re gonna watch me disappear into the sun

The truth is I am a toy that people enjoy
‘Til all of the tricks don’t work anymore
And then they are bored of me
I know that it’s exciting
Running through the night, but
Every perfect summer’s
Eating me alive until you’re gone
Better on my own
They say, “You’re a little much for me
You’re a liability
You’re a little much for me”
So they pull back, make other plans
I understand, I’m a liability
Get you wild, make you leave
I’m a little much for
E-a-na-na-na, everyone
They’re gonna watch me
Disappear into the sun
You’re all gonna watch me
Disappear into the sun

They're gonna watch me disappear into the sun

Life’s a game ’til you lose, then what?

I’m the widow
On the tip-tippy-toppy of the highest high of low
And I’m the shadow
Of the first little flower on the brightest patch of snow

Happiness can be hard to find
I’m so slap silly happy
Everybody wants to take mine

Yeah, right
That sounds nice
Everything we ever wanted and more
Someday we’ll get paid
More than it was worth to sell our souls
Yeah, yeah, right

Yeah, I’m a rock star
I’m a queen resurrected, just as messed up as before
Twist the knife hard
Just makes it easier to tell you I don’t need you anymore 

Life’s a game ’til you lose, then what?
I’m reaching a new level of not giving a fuck

Life’s a game ’til you lose, then what?

Mostly Anxious

Today is going to be an exceptionally busy day for me. I have to go out into the cold world. Yes, I mean, literally cold. I need to vote and run some errands. Ugh, I so hate leaving my house. Meanwhile, at home…inworld…its that time again and I need to get TLC open and ready for our dedicated shoppers. I’m excited about this round and hope to do some pictures of some of the amazing designs our creators have exhibited this round. I don’t have a ton to talk about right now. I’m most feeling really anxious about going out today and facing the voting lines.

Adjusting to the Weather

I woke up this morning and was soooo cold. Like chilled to the bone cold. I immediately opened my curtains to let the warmth of the sun in and grabbed my favorite sweater. Here I sit all bundled up with my coffee…shivering…I look at my phone to check the temperature thinking it must be below freezing, right? WRONG. It’s 52°F/11°C. Mind you, we had the air conditioner on two days ago and its set to only come on when the temp is above 78°F/26°C. While its certainly a lot colder than two days ago, I’m sitting here laughing, because a month from now….52°F/11°C is going to seem quite warm.
Isn’t it funny how our bodies adjust so quickly? It really is quite fascinating when you think about it. I’m happy for the cooler temps, I’ll just be happier once my body adjusts.
