Casa Paradiso Bath

Don’t faint. I know, its a decor only post and I haven’t done one of those in ages. Trust me, you’ll see it again, cuz I plan on posing with this scene, too. Plus, I never said I wouldn’t blog decor. How could I not, I love decorating. I’m so in love with with the CONCEPT} CASA PARADISO set at Arcade. So, not only will you see this scene again, or at least parts of it. You will also see more from that set. So, without further blabbering, I’m going to start working on something else! HA! Bathroom scenes have always been my most challenging, too. So, here I am trying to do another one. Be nice.

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. ♥

A Room Made with Love

I recently decided to create a fresh, new home for Chris and myself. You can’t see it here, but I chose the round compound from Bad Unicorn (its at Uber). This build presents it’s challenges as it has two room with curved walls, but the middle area I was able to divide in half. The photo here is of the living room half…well, part of it. I’m so excited to be able to not only create an amazing living space, but to have the honor actually blogging a room I will keep and use regularly for months to come. This is a room made with love more than a decorator’s eye, but I’m really happy with how it looks, too.

The Cafe

A little over a week ago, I started this morning routine of sitting at the cafe working on my laptop while I check blogs, publish a post, read emails, and process my morning to do list for the various jobs I have. Oh, I’m not leaving my house, this is all done in Second Life and the cafe is Burrow Coffee Co. It’s a great place to people watch, too. There’s not a ton of traffic, but the people that wander in are interesting to say the least. Most are friendly enough without being intrusive. The regulars nod to one another and go on with their routine of waking up. I’m fortunate enough to know the owner, Harlow Heslop, and she’s been so kind to let me have my own little area to set up each morning. So, if you’re ever in the mood for a place to chill, listen to music, and people watch, I  hope you’ll check it out.

Middy’s Room

So, when I was putting this scene together, I immediately knew I needed a unicorn. *sighs* I really don’t like unicorns. Its a long story, but they’re kind of a sort point with me…*giggles*…point…get it? Of course, you do. The instant I put that unicorn in there, I knew this was Middy’s room. I won’t get too much into who Middy is, but I’ll give you a brief description that will help you understand some of the elements of this room. Middy is an amazing woman that loves pink and unicorns, but ironically hangs out with vampires. (Hence, the casket mirror.) I jokingly told her that I built her a bedroom and she’s ready to move in. Sadly, this is created on a platform and is the only room in the house that has furniture in it. I kinda feel like a predator waiting to capture her and keep her hidden away. Though, to be fair, she is a bit of a introvert and might just enjoy that.

Dressing Room

I think most women would agree that it would indeed be lovely to have an entire room in which to get dressed. I know I would and I don’t even like to leave the house! Though to be completely fair, I imagine it would be a complete mess and nothing like those gorgeous walk-in closets that we tend to see on those shows that give us a tour of homes belonging to the rich and famous. Of course, if one could afford such a luxury, I suppose it would also be favorable to hire someone to clean up behind us. I think I’d rather have someone to do my hair every day, especially if I could relax my head in a shower bowl and receive a daily scalp massage!

Losing Track

While putting this room together, I was just imagining how amazing it would feel to sink down into this superbly comfortable looking chair from DaD with a good book, some hot tea, and a light snack. Settling in for a nice afternoon with the sunlight streaming in the windows, reflecting off the crystals in the light…the little lights twinkling as the sun goes down. I can easily see losing track of time in a place like this. While I might not have room for a space like this in real life, I can live vicariously though my avatar as so many of us do. I wonder what kind of non sexual fantasies other people bring to life in Second Life. I’d love to hear about yours if you care to share. ♥

What I’m dealing with

I’m really not even sure how much I’ve talked about my fibromyalgia. I think I mentioned it a while back and about how someone suggested that I’d become one of those people that post memes about it all the time. I do my best not to whine about it. People ask how I’m doing and I usually say I’m alright. No one really wants to hear about the trials and tribulations of living with this incredibly wretched disease. A lot of people don’t really know what it is and on that note, I took the liberty of grabbing this definition from the Mayo Clinic’s website:
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. 

That’s putting in the plainest terms possible. It almost sounds like a list of possible side effects from one of those prescription med commercials. To give you a genuine look at what it feels like would almost be impossible. There are good days and bad, but the bad days are so awful that its often too painful to even get out of bed. If you’ve ever had the actual flu (not a bad cold that you called the flu), then you may have experienced a rather small percentage of  fibro like pain. It can be quite similar. Even that is not a fair comparison, because some days it feels like I’ve been in a car wreck and I’m covered in bruises. While other days it feels like every nerve ending I have is on fire.
There are days when I can’t sleep and there are days when that’s all I can do. There are days that I’m extremely motivated and days that I can only describe as mental vacation. It’s like my brain just checks out and I can’t focus to save my life. Then there are the mood swings. I could be in the best of mood and then a wave of pain washes over me out of nowhere. I can’t imagine anyone would handle that particularly well, but when your moods are already questionable it makes matters much worse. As a result of all this, I’ve become much more reclusive than I once was. I tend to isolate which can lead to loneliness, but at least I’m not at risk of lashing out at anyone for no rational reason. Meh, I’m in the middle of a bad wave of pain…spent most of the day in bed…so that’s why I chose to write about it now. I hope it wasn’t too much of a downer. I tried not to make it whiny, but there are times when I just want the world to understand what I’m dealing with here. *shrugs*
