more reasons than usual doesn’t hurt

It’s no secret that I love October. Between my birthday and Halloween, how could I not? Even if you’re not into the dark, bloody, scary side of Halloween, there are all sorts of cute bits out there to help you get in the mood. Plus its the perfect time of year to break out colors you might not otherwise wear, like purple and black…or orange…or just go a teensy bit goth. This is the perfect time to experiment with your look, cuz if you hate it or other people don’t react well, you can just say its a costume, right? There’s so much fun stuff out there right now, I can’t imagine not shopping during October. Let’s face it, most of us don’t need an excuse to shop, but having even more reasons than usual doesn’t hurt either. *winks*
Today is super busy for me, so I’m not writing a ton. I wish you all a wonderful weekend and an awesome October!!

Triggered

When I started decorating my current home on the Blake, I immediately used the Familiar Mess desk from Nutmeg. My bestie, Harvey, came to see my progress and said that my desk was triggering. He can’t stand a messy desk. Immediately, I knew that I would be changing my desk and using this Mess on the Desk set from Insurrektion. The next time he came over, I let him know that I had taken away the desk that triggered him. *grins* He knew I was trolling him, but he looked anyway. He responded with, “I hate you.” He doesn’t, but he did in that moment. I left it out so it can trigger him every time he comes over. *giggles*

More decor!

I find myself doing a lot of decorating lately. Partially cuz I’ve been bouncing around the Blake until I found the right spot. I do think I’m there now and I have no plans to move again for a very long time. With that said, I forgot how much I love decor. Yes, it takes me longer to accomplish a scene I’m happy with, but in the end I get this therapeutic calm from doing it. On a fluke, I applied to The Loft and to my amazement I was accepted! Now you can expect to see more decor posts from me going forward. I’ll never abandon fashion. I couldn’t. I’d rather stop blogging than do that, but I’ve got a new found enthusiasm for decor and lots of new ideas to bring to my blog.

Inside your own head

Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You’ll find what you need to furnish it – memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey. ~Tad Williams

Don’t we feed you enough?

Last night, I ordered Chinese Take Away for my mother’s birthday. She just turned 75, can you believe it? Yeah, Mama Sady is three quarters of a century and still going strong. Anyway, Mom was about to go pick it up (as my license is expired) and as she’s collecting her purse and keys, I hear her exclaim, “WHAT THE FUCK?” Followed by, “Come see what your cat has done!”
I go to see what all the commotion is about and I discover that Yara, one of my new cats, has ripped wrestled a trash bag to the ground and is now licking the upper edges of a dog food can. I quickly grabbed my camera and took a photo while laughing, “Yara! Don’t we feed you enough?” She’s a rescue and I’m not sure what her backstory is, but I suspect she spent some time going hungry and having to find her meals where she good. Thus she has a habit of sniffing out food anywhere she can find it. Let me assure you that she has plenty of food. We’re an open feeder kinda family, so she has bowl of cat food on my nightstand as well as my mother’s. Yet, here she is, going for scraps in the trash….and dog food at that! This inspired my photo today and I’ve even included the real life photo I took at the very bottom of the post, for those that are curious….as we cats tend to be. *winks*

Don't we feed you enough?

Spruce up your sliving space

One of my favorite aspects about mesh is the land impact that is saved. I remember years ago, feeling like such a prim whore, because I wanted those little details that really personalize a sliving space. However, back then you could use up 100 prims just decorating an end table. Now, most of the knick knacks are 1-3 li at most and I am so grateful. With that said, if you’re like me and love giving your sliving space some individual flare, then you need to know about Spruce.
Spruce is a new store and yes, the creator is a friend of mine. Most of you are familiar with Harlow Heslop from Burrow Co and various other community spaces before that. However, she has taken on creating adorable decor items like pillows, candles, and now picture frames. I’m a huge fan of frames, as most of my friends and family are photographers. I love displaying their beautiful faces and talents around my home. I encourage you all to check out her store, located on the Burrow Co sim, as well as taking a good look at some of the other little decorative decor elements being made at various decor stores. Don’t limit your vision to complete decor sets, but mix things up. I hope that my photo showcases a little bit about that very subject and if my post doesn’t inspire you, please take a look at some of the amazing decor shots you can find in some of the home groups on flickr.

Bringing Ideas to Fruition

I think the vibe I was going for in this picture will be fairly obvious to Supernatural fans. At least, I hope so. I’m so far behind in that series. I’m still stuck somewhere in Season 9. I can’t believe that show has lasted so long. I’m glad for everyone involved and for the fans, but damn. That’s a long running series for some demon hunters. It’s a pretty cool show and I recommend it to anyone stuck in quarantine. I kinda doubt you’ll manage to binge all the episodes in one sitting. LOL
I’m partial to Dean, his taste in music, and definitely his car. Most people I know prefer Sam, which I just do not understand, but that’s cool. Less people between Dean and me. *grins*
Once again, this is one of the many things I adore about photography in Second Life. You can create your own personal scenes to somewhat place yourself in the story line of your favorite shows and/or movies….or even bring a scene to life from a book. Wherever you draw your inspiration from, this is the perfect outlet for bringing these ideas to fruition.

It’s Monday!!

I haven’t been feeling much like myself the last couple of days, but before that I was so busy I didn’t have time to think. Now that things have slowed down just a bit, I feel rather lost and not quite sure what to do with myself. I did take some time away from the pc yesterday. Did some reading and just relaxing.
I was hoping to sit out on my patio, but its been just a bit too chilly and everything is wet from the recent rains. So, I curled up in bed with my book instead. Not a lot going on at the moment, but I swear if I’m not balls to the wall busy…I just feel lost. However, its Monday, so I’ve hit the ground running this morning and I’m off to conquer a new week!

It’s Monday!!

I feel right at home

I’ve been havin’ dreams
Jumpin’ on a trampoline
Flippin’ in the air
I never land, just float there
As I’m looking up
Suddenly the sky erupts
Flames alight the trees
Spread to fallin’ leaves
Now they’re right upon me
Wait if I’m on fire
How am I so deep in love?
When I dream of dying
I never feel so loved
I’ve been having dreams
Splashin’ in a summer stream
Trip and I fall in
I wanted it to happen
My body turns to ice
Crushin’ weight of paradise
Solid block of gold
Lying in the cold
I feel right at home

I feel right at home

She would shine

“She was like the sun,
She knew her place in the world –
She would shine again regardless
of all the storms and changeable weather
She wouldn’t adjust her purpose
for things that pass.”
― Nikki Rowe

This post is all about Bloom by Prism Events. I have been blogging for Prism Events…well, for years. I absolutely love the three events they put on throughout the years. Bloom is all about Spring and this year, with Easter around the corner, we’ve got an abundance of cute Easter themed items, as well. Don’t get too overwhelmed thinking that these items will only work for Spring, though. As you can see by the photo, I’ve created a summer theme using the gorgeous house from Concept that you can acquire at the Arcade. If you want to see more of the house, I did two posts about it earlier this month. You can see those here and here.
I grabbed this hair weeks ago during a Fifty Linden Friday and then yesterday Cynful released silky textures on their Buttoned Tube Top. Knowing Cyn, it’s probably still out so hurry! The rest just kinda fell into place as I was looking around at the different items I’d collected from Bloom. All in all, I’m really pleased with how my photo turned out. I hope it will inspire you to create some wonderful Spring & Summer spots of your own, or at least a cute outfit…cuz these shorts…*bites her lip*…they are sooo cute!!!!
