It’s all about Equal10!!

It’s all about Equal10!! Well, this post at least. I’ll readily admit that I am an event junkie! I love seeing designers from all over the grid all bringing out their latest and greatest in one place. Don’t get me wrong, I love some mainstore releases, too. Let’s face it, I love shopping! The thing about events, for me, is that each event usually delivers a certain flair. Equal10 has quickly become one of my favorites, because more often than not, I can count on at least three or four of my favorite stores to be presenting. This round is most definitely one of those. I did my best to squeeze in as many of my favorites as I could straight away. I mean, look at the list of credits! I love what I’m wearing. I love the pose. I love my surroundings.
I actually really love this photo and how it turned out. *winks at her haters* Yes, I used bokeh and an overlay. I know its not perfect and I’m by far no expert photographer or editor, but if you can’t love your own work….how can you expect others to like it? Naturally, with me loving the photo so much, it will probably do poorly on Flickr as that seems to be the trend when I really like a photo. *laughs* That’s just the way the Flickr cookie seems to crumble. The real point of this photo is to show off all the insanely good creations that the designers have shared with us at reasonable prices.

I need healing

Wish I could’ve found the words to say
Wish I could’ve given what you gave
‘Cause we could’ve loved, we could’ve been something
But not if I’m brokenAnd I know that you love me but I don’t think I’m ready
Found me in a bottle
Oh, I thought I needed someone I could run to
Oh, run to, oh
But I need healing
I need healing

Perfectly Content

Its funny how life changes us. Once upon a time, I wanted nothing more than to be the center of attention. Then I dabbled in some illegal activities which taught me the importance of blending in and fading into the background. I got out of that, fairly quickly, and without too many life altering consequences. Part of me craved that attention again and in seeking it out, I was once again reminded why I’m so much better off keeping my head down and keeping to myself. People that get close to me will see that little attention craver inside me, but as a whole…I prefer to keep to myself. To my therapist’s dismay, I do not socialize at all in real life. I prefer the comforts of my computer and being able to exit quickly. Even in Second Life I can spend days, even weeks pretty much alone…and I have. Not so much lately, but over the last few years. So, when social distancing and quarantines were causing the rest of the world to go insane, my life remained exactly the same. Other than walking my dog, I have not left my house since March 17 and I won’t leave until that’s the only way for me to get therapy. For now, I’m perfectly content staying at home.

Making Room for Pizza

They had moved to the big city with dreams of an exciting nightlife. No one had ever anticipated being locked down over a pandemic. These two had been friends their entire lives and had been through all sorts of heart aches, but nothing had compared to this.

As Sady finished off another donut, she rubbed her tummy and sighed, “Thank God workout clothes are stretchy!”

Stef lifted her leg to let another one rip across the room, “OMG! Right!?!?”

Sady scrunched her nose and laughed, “I should try that, maybe I’d have room for more pizza!”

Stef laughed, “You weren’t supposed to hear that!”

Sady gave her a look, “I heard it, smelled it, and watched you lift your leg like a dog to let it out!”

It was right then, that their little Yorkie, Puddin, let out an outrageously disgusting little fart of her own. I guess she’s making room for pizza, too.

Copper River

I love this look so much that I put off taking my picture just so I’d have an excuse (in my own head) to wear it longer. Plus, I knew I would want just the right setting for the photo. I needed something would give that music festival in the desert feel. I knew just the place…Copper River. This sim houses two of the newest events on the grid and though nothing I’m wearing is from either event, it’s ok. The two events on that sim are Salon52 and Flourish, both owned by Keely Mistwood and Kess Crystal. Yes, my regular readers should recognize the name, Kess. She is one of my absolute best friends and has been one of my biggest inspirations in blogging. We’re so busy doing our own things these days, that when we do catch up we don’t talk too much or too long about business. So, I don’t know who did the landscaping for this sim (I probably should have found out), but it is amazing. The events are across the sim from each other, but the space between them is incredible and that’s all I’m going to say. Go see it.

Prayin

“Well, you almost had me fooled
Told me that I was nothing without you
Oh, but after everything you’ve done
I can thank you for how strong I have become
‘Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just say this is “I wish you farewell”
I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin’
I’m proud of who I am
No more monsters, I can breathe again
And you said that I was done
Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come
‘Cause I can make it on my own, oh
And I don’t need you, I found a strength I’ve never known
I’ll bring thunder, I’ll bring rain, oh
When I’m finished, they won’t even know your name
You brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just say this is “I wish you farewell”
I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin’
Ah sometimes, I pray for you at night, oh
Someday, maybe you’ll see the light
Whoa oh oh oh, some say, in life, you’re gonna get what you give
But some things only God can forgive
Yeah! (I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’)
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin'”

Foreplay

It’s no secret that I love doing collaborations with other bloggers, but finding the right time, scene, pose, clothes, etc….its not as easy as one might think. Well, finally, after months of saying we would, Tiffany Parkin and I got together, throwing caution to the wind, we did our first collaboration. I’m calling it foreplay, because I want to do another, sexier more tantalizing photo in the future. Poor Tiffany has been dragged into my world since the night we did this photo and I fear she’ll never be the same. *grins* You can find her version by clicking her name above and it will take you directly to her blog. ♥

In Full Bloom

Sometime last year, someone told me that my Flickr was all black and white. I wasn’t quite sure what they meant, but they went on to explain that they meant my color palette. That most of the outfits I chose to blog were black or white. I hadn’t really thought about it that much, but looking at my Flickr through their eyes, I started to understand. The funny thing is…I love color! Lots of colors. Ask me my favorite color and I’ll tell you that it depends on what it’s for. I think I lean towards black and white in SL, because of how I tend to take photos.
Since then, I have been introducing more and more color into my photos, but now with Spring in full Bloom (see what I did there?), you all are about to see a lot more colors in all of my photos. Some of you will probably be wondering what the hell happened to me!?! *giggles* Oh and if you didn’t get the little joke up there, check the credits…you’ll get it. *chuckles*
