Keep Them Happy

Pinning Joe down for photographs is going to be my new hobby! Of course, that means he’s gonna need to do some shopping and we’re definitely going to change that hair! *laughs cuz she knows he’s reading this* Give me time and I’ll give him a complete make over…*giggles* Yep, cuz that’s what we do, right, girls? We pin them down and then start molding them into what we want. The secret is to keep them happy during the process. *winks* Otherwise, we’re just making them pretty for the next girl!

Rough Week

It’s been a rough week full of tough decisions and its only Thursday! I’ve missed my last two group therapy appointments and I’m in serious need of some one on one with my therapist, luckily I have an appointment tomorrow. I’ve been avoiding someone close to me, because their lifestyle is toxic to me and despite the fact that I’ve asked repeatedly for some boundaries to be in place, this person refuses to show me even a modicum of respect.
It is absolutely heartbreaking to think that I might be losing a friend that I’ve grown to love so very much, but at the end of the day I must take care of myself. I’ve spent the last four years living in this dark hole of a life and as I try my hardest to pull myself out…I cannot allow anyone to hinder my growth. On the other hand, a true friend wouldn’t be so blatantly disrespectful, would they?
I mean, if I don’t set boundaries for myself and the people I allow in my life, I will only be putting myself back into that little people pleasing box, running around on auto pilot that has put me so far into the darkness I’m so desperately trying to escape. I want to enjoy what’s left of my life and I can’t do that if I continue to permit someone to consistently disrespect me. We tell each other all the time not to let our lovers do it, but we rarely approach the subject of friends. Sadly, that’s where I am right now and its a bridge I have avoided crossing for the better part of the past six months. *sighs*

Christmas Collab with Chickadee

I’ve been wanting to do more collaborations with other bloggers for ages. As a blog manager, I have access to dozens of truly talented bloggers that represent similar if not the same brands as myself. When United Colors released his last two gowns, Chickadee and I knew instantly that this was our collaboration waiting to happen. I just so happened to have a party scene already set up from a previous post (you’ll find the link for that in the details below the photo), so we just needed a few friends for a the background. We were fortunate that Ty and Dusty were will to step in to model for us rather last minute.  Tis the season for all sorts of parties from casual to formal. Don’t struggle too hard on the formal, because UC has truly outdone himself with the details and the fit on these two gowns. Click here for Chickadee’s post   and see her view on our little gathering.
Happy Holidays to all and more importantly…Happy shopping!♥

Not So Haunted

It’s no secret that I’m an atheist. So, it should come as no surprise that I’m also a skeptic when it comes to most things that are considered supernatural, particularly ghosts, possessions, demons, and anything considered haunted. However, most people never question how I came to these conclusions. For one thing, I’ve spent multiple nights in a house that was supposedly haunted and I never saw a thing. Haunted houses are especially suspect to me, because they’re always old houses. It’s like apartments or houses built in the last 50 years are never haunted. Plenty of murders and bizarre deaths happen in homes like those, but for some reason they’re never reported to be haunted. I’ve never heard of an atheist being possessed. For that matter, it seems to be limited to Catholics.
What might really surprise people is that I do believe that there is life on other planets, but not in our solar system. I also believe in vampires, but not the blood drinking, murderous type. I believe in psyvamps, as they feed off of energy, and this is something I’m quite familiar with, because I’ve been doing that very thing since I was a child. Psyvamps get a very bad reputation, but that’s a topic for another day. I, also, believe in certain forms of…well, for the lack of a better word…magic. This is also something I’ve experienced and perhaps one day, I’ll write more about that. For now, I just wanted to touch on some basic supernatural ideas, because I’m currently watching The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix. *laughs*
I dunno, I’m just not big into believing in make believe monsters, when all the real monsters I’ve seen and met have been human. Perhaps that’s why crime shows intrigue me so much. That or I’m just a twisted weirdo. *shrugs & giggles*

I Need to See You

Natalia M. King – I Need to See You

A battered heart
is just another start
to a waiting
lay me down and die story.
long are the days
with my impulsive ways
I start to trouble
I start to worry
 God help me if I’m right
God help me if I’m wrong
don’t wanna put up a fight
but you’ve been gone away too long
 I need
I need to see
I need to see you
I need to see you again
 an hour’s like a day
a day is like a year
when we’re apart
and when you’re not here to please me
 I see your way
to foreplay
is to make me wait and hunger
while you tease me
 God help me if i’m right
God help me if i’m wrong
don’t wanna put up a fight
but you’ve been gone away too long
I need
I need to see
I need to see you
I need to see you again
I’m not saying
that I regret the past
and I’m not saying
that we are gonna last
I’m not saying
that this is a one time fling
and I’m definitely not saying
that this is gonna be forever thing
I’m just saying
I’m just saying
I need
I need to see
I need to see you
I need to see you again

Tea Party? Nah! Let’s drink wine!

“Welcome to the Tea Party
Want to be my VIP?
You didn’t RSVP
That’s ok, that’s ok
Welcome to the Tea Party (oh oh, oh oh)
Want to be my VIP?”
~Kerli “Tea Party

Ok, so when I first saw the Garden Soiree Set by unKindness at Collabor88, I immediately had the above mentioned song in my head. I knew I had to have a little gathering of my roommates for a photo. Anyone that knows my crew, knows that we’re not exactly tea drinkers…so it had to be a wine party, right? Well, imagine getting five very creative and strong personalities together, suggesting a theme and giving them some freedom to express themselves…yeah, madness ensued.

tea eh wine partyI am very fortunate that they let me believe I had any sense of control while shooting these photos or that I had any influence at all over their outfits. I said, “Go for it…be bizarre…be creative.” I should have known that Rom would show up in his favorite boots. Tracy, of course, shows up in as little as possible. Afterall, “Tracy’s flickr” is our favorite answer to all Cards Against Humanity questions (try it, it works). When I told them to hop on the pose stands I had filled with poses from Del May, Grace immediately asked if she could be passed out on the table. It only seemed natural that she would be, so I had to say yes. I knew the minute I saw the dress from sYs that I’d be wearing it for the party and when Sino saw it, he quickly put together his own stunning look.
tea party
Being surrounded by friends this way was amazing and I’m not sure I can even begin to explain the conversations we had while I shot these photos, but I can’t recommend the experience enough. I know we all gather at clubs and dance to our favorite DJs. That is so much fun in its own right, but please if you’ve never done it…have a party at home with your closest friends. Ask them to dress in theme and break out the cameras, because THIS?
Yeah, in almost 10 years on the grid, these types of little parties have always been my favorite. We might not have been genuinely drunk in real life, but we sure were high on life and I’m so grateful that I was able to catch this madness on virtual film. Even when things went a bit haywire with my poses stands, the fun continued.
tea party madness
The Garden Soiree Set inspires the oncoming of fall and it just so happens that its mine and Tracy’s favorite season…no, that has nothing to do with the fact that both our birthdays are in October…pssshaw! Its the time of pumpkins, caramel apples, cinnamon candles, hot cocoa…ok, lots of apple things…Halloween…falling leaves…all sorts of good stuffs! So, we got a little excited…and its really a very lovely set, despite the madness represented here. All the credits for the peeps and the scene are listed below, to make it easier a brief description of who is who is first.
