Men Are Like Shoes

I just really wanted to show of these shoes and I stumbled across a song by Shania Twain that’s really cute and compares men to shoes. Not going to paste the lyrics, but you can click here and they’ll pop up. The video is at the bottom and by clicking on the photo below you can go straight to flickr for a better view.

Men are like shoes
A bit too confused
Yeah, there’s so many of ’em
I don’t know which ones to choose

One Year

“Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure – measure a year?
In daylights – in sunsets
In midnights – in cups of coffee
In inches – in miles
In laughter – in strife”
Rent – Seasons of Love

Today marks one year since my first post to this blog and its been an amazing journey. It started off as me finding a creative outlet that I found therapeutic. I was encouraged and supported by three of the most amazing women I’ve ever known in my 10+ years on the grid. I can’t thank Kess, Tracy, and Grace enough for their continued support. I would not be the woman I am today without them. These are women I hope to never lose touch with and I’d love to think that someday the four of us could redefine the Golden Girls…someday…we’re not THAT old yet…*laughs*

I don’t want to just thank them. I want to thank the readers and the designers who have taken me on a blogger. Not just the ones I currently blog for, but all the designers along the way that believed in me enough to provide me with blogger packs. I appreciate every single person that looks at my blog, whether they read my words or simply like my photos. I am always amazed that people actually want to look at my photos and/or read my words. Today, I am filled with gratitude for all the support and it is because of all this that I still love blogging. I’m growing as a writer and a photographer with each passing day. Thank YOU…yes, you…for reading this, for clicking my links, for supporting me…for liking what I do. I truly hope each and everyone of you has a week filled with love and laughter. ♥

Wishes

My best friend is the man who in wishing me well wishes it for my sake. Aristotle
wishesFriends of mine, and even associates, will often find me wishing them a day filled with love and laughter on special days. I’ve had some accuse me of insincerity and generic statements. I find it sad that their hearts are so filled with cynicism that they could question something so seemingly innocent. I assure you that I mean it each and every time I say it. A day filled with love and laughter is a good day. Don’t we all deserve a good day? Especially on special occasions, like birthdays, anniversaries, and celebrations of any kind.
I wish everyone days upon days filled with love and laughter. I wish the world a positive loving attitude. I wish the world, including myself, love. I wish…

Ok..so I wish you all happy shopping and exploring…see all the awesome details before and in the meantime…don’t look a wish in the face with doubt. Take that wish and embrace it…lets see if together we can make those wishes come true. ♥

This City Has Gone to the Dogs

This is probably the most fun I’ve had putting a picture together and to be honest, it had me feeling a bit like Cruella DeVille, despite the fact that there’s not a single Dalmatian in the mix. However, I was speaking with Jamie Cross of unKindness about her amazing Concrete Jungle gacha set for The Epiphany and we started talking about some of the other amazing sets that were in this round. One of the sets we talked about was the JIAN Countryside Collies Gacha set and how precious those little dogs were. At that moment the proverbial light bulb lit up over my head and I knew right away that this post was going to happen.
gone to the dogs
In these photos there are the white sleek dogs ({anc} flottante puppy. milk), there are a few labs from O.M.E.N., some Whippets from Foxes,  the Dobermans are from a pose  credited below, but all of the other canines are from Jian. Regarding the all of the adorable dogs from Jain: The cute collies are, of course, from this round of Epiphany, but the rest can be obtained at the mainstore. The buildings…naturally, are part of the Concrete Jungle set from unKindness at Epiphany, and though I keep forgetting to mention it, the roads are from the :Fanatik Architecture: NEW YORK set, available on marketplace and their mainstore.

All of the poses in this post can be found at TresChic from AMITIE and yes, they come with the Dobermans. The hair is also at TresChic by Phoenix and came right on time to go with this adorable outfit from Zenith that I obtained at Epiphany along with the aswesome heels. The nitty gritty details are below the last picture, complete with hyperlinks. Could someone please remind me not to drink wine while writing my next post? Thanks…lol.

I’m going back to Epiphany for more goodies…see you there! ❤

Angels in Second Life

We’re all seeing a lot of pictures of avatars wearing wings, as they seem to be very popular in gacha machines and in Second Life in general. I can’t help but giggle a bit at the mention of angels in SL, because my close friends and I are always joking about how angelic we are….we’re sooo NOT, well, not really. However, on that note, I will put it on official blogging record that my closest friends are indeed the angels I turn to when I feel broken and battered by life. These same amazing friends are also the ones I run to with my good news and celebrations. I find happiness in their joy and I find pride in their successes. I believe they feel the same way. I am so very fortunate to have such an amazing network of friends. They know who they are and I just want them to know they’re worth more than their weight in gold to me. I shall treasure each of you eternally.

I bet that if you look around, you’re surrounded by a few angels yourself. I sure hope you all are, because there’s no greater feeling than knowing you’ve got amazing people in your corner. ❤
