Believe in Something

Believe in something…live for something…don’t just exist.

It’s difficult to admit that I’ve allowed myself to slip so far down the rabbit hole that I don’t even recognize myself anymore. That I let life get the better of me and relinquished my terms completely. All of my boundaries faded away as I shriveled down into myself. Then I had a conversation with an old friend that really made me think. She suggested that I must have something to look forward to…something to live for…and I couldn’t think of a single one. So, more than a resolution…this is a goal. This year, I will believe in something…might just be that my cat is an asshole, but I will believe in something. I will live for something…not someone…something else…something that’s mine. From there, perhaps I can work on a list other smaller goals I have set for myself. That’s the goal anyway. Happy  New Year and Happy Shopping ❤

Finally Unplugged

The familiar chime of an incoming text message made her instantly look at her phone, as if trained like Pavlov’s dog. She sighed as she saw that it was him again. She chastised herself mentally, “I knew I should have left this damn phone in the room.”
She had taken a brief vacation to get away from the hustle and bustle of her daily life. She was pretending to be someone else, as she wanted a complete escape, yet here she was chained to reality by this electronic leash called a smart phone.
She lit a cigarette as she read his latest tirade. She was so sick of his shit. She had come on this trip to get away from him, but here he was nagging at her from a thousand miles away. She decided enough was enough. Texting her sister with the information for where she was staying in case of absolute emergency, she turned her phone off, finished her cigarette and went back into the quaint little beach side pub to finish her wine. She was finally unplugged…at least for a few more days.

Remembering Him

Have you ever met someone that altered your life completely? Someone that was only there for just a little while, but forever altered the course of your life? I did…almost married him, in fact. Fortunately, I didn’t, because looking back, I’m quite sure that wasn’t his purpose in my life, but changes were made that forced me to look at myself far deeper than I ever imagined I would. He still crosses my mind and I have no way of knowing if he’s dead or alive. I wouldn’t dare to look him up, for fear of what I might find. Somethings are just better left in the past.

More Happiness

“You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous.” ~ Tony Hawk

Naturally, for this picture, I wanted a Tony Hawk quote, because he’s probably the most well known skate boarder in the U.S. Even my 72yr old mother knows of him. Yet, this quote really hits home with me, because my best friend, Kess Crystal, recently did a poll for bloggers, then released the results in her blog, Big Blogger Questions.  I know that every blogger on the grid did not participate in the poll, but I know a fair amount did. The results were a bit surprising, but I think the biggest surprise for me was the amount of bloggers that see blogging as competitive. It was 26%!! I have never seen blogging as competitive. I’m super happy to see talented photographer fashionistas take to blogging.
I started blogging as a distraction…as a form of therapy…a creative outlet. I never looked at other bloggers and thought, “I’m going to be better them.” I used to wonder how one blogger got chosen for a brand vs a blogger that I thought did better photographs, but as I stepped into blogger management, I realized that the designers have a certain vision for how they want their brand to be represented and each has their own criteria. Some will not take on bloggers that feature nudity or curse words. Some brands won’t consider a micro blogger (flickr only). I’ve never been angry with a friend for getting selected for a brand I wanted to blog for and I didn’t. I do my absolute best to surround myself with positive and supportive people. I don’t blog for the hopes of being popular or famous in a virtual world. I do it, because I’m addicted to it. What started off as a for of creative expression and therapy, has evolved to a creative adventure and full on addiction. I’m even prone to overdosing…taking on more than I can handle and edging dangerously close to blogger burnout, but alas, I’ve been able to reign myself in and make it all work.

Selfies or Desire

Okay, so I was struggling with ideas for what to write about with this photo, because this one just kinda happened all on its own. That happens to me a lot. Sometimes I start with looking for a pose to show off an outfit or item and from there I end up building a scene around myself. I just woke up from a nice long sleep and I’m thrashing about for an idea. So, I take the internet and start looking for quotes about selfies and desire. Lord, the quotes about selfies are not very nice. So, with the sexy look of the photo and the neon sign, I decided to look for quotes about desire. Instead of finding something hot or deep, I found myself drawn to quotes that made me chuckle. So, I’m just gonna share a few below, cuz why the hell not?

Every time I look at you I get a fierce desire to be lonesome. Oscar Levant

Boredom: the desire for desires. Leo Tolstoy

Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. Robert Frost

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. H. L. Mencken

See the Reason

On Hold

I’ve been approaching a situation with so much caution, because I didn’t want to hurt anyone or for people to misunderstand the situation and think less of me. Naturally, I sought out the advice of my closest friends. They reminded me that people will think and believe what they want, no matter how long I wait. It was then that I realized that those that warrant an explanation will get one. Those that don’t, well, why should I care what they think? Why put my happiness on hold based on what I think they might think? So, later today, I will be announcing my happy news with great pride, and despite what people may think…I haven’t done anything wrong. The timing is just…well, a tad inconvenient and possibly suspicious for some. I can no more stop them from believing that than my ex can stop me from believing what I think about what happened. Oooh, goodness…was that a clue? *grins*

We’ve Come Too Far

“The present has no weapon
Your gifts keeps on giving
What is this I’m feelin’
If you wanna leave I’m ready, oh
Cause we’ve come too far
To give up who we are
So lets raise the bar
And our cups to the stars”

Accessories

I’m a girl that loves her accessories. Oddly enough, I rarely blog accessories. I’m not sure why. Perhaps its because I wasn’t comfortable taking close up shots. However, whenever I go out to an event, I will spend an hour putting the right accessories with it. So, I’ve decided I’m going to try to focus a bit more of my blogging photography on accessories. By the way, this dress from Dead Dollz is amazing, so hurry over to FaMESHed before it closes for the month to get yours. This dress is amazing, there are options to make it solid, semi-sheer, and quite sheer. I’m showing the semi-sheer below. This is truly a sexy dress that has some chains attached with options to change the colors of those. I’ve added the necklace and earrings from Avenge to give it a more unique look, that I’m quite happy with. I’m rambling, because I’m avoiding what’s really on my mind. So, I’ll shut up and just encourage you to go shopping and have creating you own looks.

Girls Like You

So, once again, I’ve found myself locked in a writer’s block. I’m feeling super creative photo wise, but words are failing me at the moment. I asked Kronic for his help and being the awesome DJ he is…he found me this song and I love it. I hope you do, too.

Maroon 5 – Girls Like You ft Cardi B

Spent 24 hours, I need more hours with you
You spent the weekend getting even, ooh
We spent the late nights making things right between us
But now it’s all good, babe
Roll that backwood, babe
And play me close
‘Cause girls like you run ’round with guys like me
Till sundown when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you
I spent last night on the last flight to you
Took a whole day up tryna get way up, ooh
We spent the daylight tryna make things right between us
But now it’s all good, babe
Roll that backwood, babe
And play me close
‘Cause girls like you run ’round with guys like me
Till sundown when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
I need a girl like you
Maybe it’s 6:45
Maybe I’m barely alive
Maybe you’ve taken my shit for the last time, yeah
Maybe I know that I’m drunk
Maybe I know you’re the one
Maybe I’m thinking it’s better if you drive

Not too long ago, I was dancing for dollars (eeoow)
Know it’s really real if I let you meet my mama (eeoow)
You don’t want a girl like me I’m too crazy
But every other girl you meet is fugazy (okurrrt)
I’m sure them other girls were nice enough
But you need someone to spice it up
So who you gonna call? Cardi, Cardi
Come and rev it up like a Harley, Harley
Why is the best fruit always forbidden?
I’m coming to you now doin’ 20 over the limit
The red light, red light stop, stop (skrrt)
I don’t play when it comes to my heart (let’s get it though)
I don’t really want a white horse and a carriage
I’m thinkin’ more of white Porsches and karats
I need you right here ’cause every time you fall
I play with this kitty like you play with your guitar(ah)

‘Cause girls like you run ’round with guys like me
‘Til sun down when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you
