Another hole to dig my soul in

One of the challenges of being a blogger is trying to decide the best pose to show off an item. The new No Filter Outfit from Cynful is one of those outfits that looks amazing from all sides and the newest hair from Stealthic, Metropolis, is no different. I hope you all have plenty of lindens on hand, because I see some very pretty things that are just dying to be part of your teensy lil ole inventory. *giggles* If you read my blog, you’re a shopaholic like me and I know damn well you’re inventory isn’t teensy. I need to clean my up before I get locked out of sl for my inventory being too damn big. LOL
Oh and y’all know I couldn’t write so little without adding at least SOME lyrics, right? Cuz music is life!!

A heart will swell before it’s hardened
With the flick of the hair, it can make you old
Another hole to dig my soul in
I’ll leave anything bare that keeps me soul

Another hole to dig my soul in

Kitsune…huh?

I’d say its fairly obvious that I’m not into anime or even Asian culture. Though, I do love some Asian cuisine! So, the first time I saw or even heard of a kitsune was in Second Life. Even then, I wasn’t all that interested. I just assumed it was a cute creature from Anime. I was like, “Kitsune…huh?” Eventually, I looked it up! What I found surprised me.

Kitsune in the literal sense is the Japanese word for fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore; in English, kitsune refers to them in this context. Stories depict legendary foxes as intelligent beings and as possessing paranormal abilities that increase as they get older and wiser.Wikipedia

If you keep reading the Wiki page about it, you’ll discover that the more tails it’s more powerful, older, and wiser. So, as you can see by just the little bit of information on the Wiki page, kitsune isn’t an anime thing after all. They are part of Japanese folklore more so than anime. Now, I just feel stupid for always assuming that’s what they were. Just a gentle reminder to do a little research before we go running off at the mouth about things we don’t really know about.

There was a time

There was a time when I was alone
No where to go and no place to call home
My only friend was the man in the moon
And even sometimes he would go away too
Then one night, as I closed my eyes
I saw a shadow flying high
He came to me with the sweetest smile
Told me he wanted to talk for a while

There was a time

Special Place of Zen

These days, I think we’d all like a spa vacation. Unfortunately, due to the current times, that simply isn’t an option for most of us. However, I have found some tranquility by creating my own spa inworld and simply allowing my avatar to enjoy the setting, while I listen to some soft meditation friendly music. It would seem that the creators in SL have a similar idea, as I was able to use the new Urban Spa set from Atelier Burgundy & Pitaya as my foundation, then added elements from other spa sets in my collection to personalize it. There’s quite a bit that isn’t shown here, to include spring water and a mud bath, but I think this photo gives you an accurate view to grasp the idea. Hopefully, it will inspire you to create you own special place of zen. ♥

It might stop

I’m up all night online
I’m looking up my symptoms
Tell myself I’m fine
But my system just ain’t listenin’
Like ooh
This ain’t normal how I’m feelin’, no
Ooh
Running higher than a fever
When my palms start to sweat
I feel it in my stomach
This is how I get
Every time I know you’re comin’ over
Ooh
Sometimes I think that I might die with you
Ooh
It’s like I’m almost too alive with you
Ahhh
Ooh ohh ooh
Oh, it feels like
My heart’s gonna beat so fast, gonna beat so fast
Gonna beat so fast that it might stop

It might stop

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!!

Is it hard knowing you’re wrong?

I heard from a friend of a friend
That you’ve been checking back in
‘Cause I said goodbye, moved overnight
And you haven’t heard much since then
Wondering how I’m doing now
It’s none of your business first of all
Wondering how I’m doing now
But if you’ve got to know, well sure
Well sure
You think I’d be lost
Think I’d be lost without you, lost
Is it hard knowing you’re wrong
See I got lots without you
Lots without you

Is it hard knowing you’re wrong?

When did my heart stop beating?

My feet are on the ground I swear
But I’m not moving anywhere
My lungs say that I’m breathing
But when did my heart stop beating?
I don’t know who I am
Or who I used to be before
You broke me in a thousand pieces
Now tell me, how am I to fix this?
Don’t you try and help me ’cause I know
I know
Only time can heal but it’s running out
Running outTell me how to feel, to feel okay
Tell me how to feel, to feel okay
‘Cause I don’t know
I’ve been feeling pretty low
Ever since the day you dug my heart’s grave

When did my heart stop beating?

Feeding my inner fashion junkie

Brand new goods! That’s right, Stealthic has released a brand new hair at Anthem, clearly inspired by Anya Taylor-Joy‘s character, Beth Harmon, from the recent hit The Queen’s Gambit. I loved the story and highly recommend it to anyone looking for something to binge on Netflix. Naturally, Hunter does not disappoint with a fun new short hairstyle. I am already obsessed with Gambit.

Ahh, but Hunter isn’t the only one feeding my inner fashion junkie. Cynful has designed the Mile High Jumpsuit for the upcoming round of Collabor88 and it is fabulous! Now, anyone that reads me regularly knows that my favorite color for fashion is FATPACK! Plus, I’m a very lucky blogger that’s been on the Cynful team since….*thinks for a minute*…2016! Now, I just won’t say much if I don’t have good things to say, but this jumpsuit? OMG, I’m not going to want to stop talking about it nor will I want to take it off anytime soon. This is truly one of the sexiest things I’ve seen in the grid in quite a while. It’s not super revealing, but there are no curves hidden in this sexy number. The hud comes with an option for flat or high feet, too.
It is a bit tricky finding the right shoes to fit under the perfectly flared, unzipped cut, but I am sure you all can find something. I’ve paired a sleek minimal pair of N-Core’s Elvira Heels with mine. I went with a taupe natural color, cuz let’s face it….in this outfit no one is looking at your shoes. Yet, you don’t want something sticking through the back of the shoe either, so chunky pumps are out!

I’ll put it this way. A male friend of mine sent a message to Cynthia of Cynful to thank her for this sexy jumpsuit on behalf of men across the grid. So, if nothing else, you’ll want to hit up Collabor88 for this jumpsuit ASAP.
