As I was taking this picture, the sun was rising over my shoulder. I couldn’t help but think how each new day is like a new leaf on the tree of life. How it is up to us as individuals to shape that leaf into something beautiful or to let it wither up to waste away.
So, y’all gotta know I miss writing something on occasion. Should’ve known I couldn’t stay quiet for too damn long. I didn’t even make it a month. I don’t know what I’ll write about going forward. I don’t think I’ll be quite so forthcoming about my life. Sadly, there are people out there that like to hurt me and use personal information to do so. In the meantime, I hope everyone, even the haters, enjoys this summer the best you can. Let’s all eat watermelon and get sticky!
If you love cosmetics in Second Life, the way I do, then by now you’ve seen the absolutely beautiful eyeshadows and lipsticks that IDTTY has been making over the years. One of the happiest cosmetic days for me was the day that she started creating for Lelutka Evolution, because I had been wearing her cosmetics for quite some time on my Genus and Catwa heads. For months, I drooled over new releases that simply didn’t work with my newly beloved Lelutka heads. Finally it happened and I was elated. Then she did a blogger search. OMG, was it possible? I hadn’t really done a lot of cosmetic blogging in the past, as closeups have always done my head in…pun intended. LOL. I decided it was worth a shot, because if there’s a cosmetic store out there that I can fully stand behind it is without a doubt, IDTTY! I didn’t have my hopes set too high. Like I said, I hadn’t really blogged a lot of cosmetics. However, I wasn’t going to get it if I didn’t try and try I did. AND….I GOT IT!! I was so excited! So that’s why you’re seeing so many more close ups and I really do encourage everyone to give it a go. She creates for Genus, Catwa, and Lelutka Evo now…so honestly, unless you’re wearing some obscure head (and that’s ok) you should be able to find the perfect cosmetic combos and they are worth every single penny.
When you love someone so deeply
They become your life
It’s easy to succumb to overwhelming fears inside
Blindly I imagined I could
Keep you under glass
Now I understand to hold you
I must open up my hands
And watch you rise
Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly, oh
Fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were meant to be
So spread your wings and fly
Every year there’s a Second Life challenge to do a yearbook photo and I’ve never participated. High school was not the best of times for me. I could have a do over, I know I would’ve done things very differently. I suppose that’s true for most of us. Anyway, whenever people do the yearbook photo challenge I can’t help but giggle, because I hated our senior yearbook photos. The first ice school I went to, gave an option to do the standard senior photo with the velvet crap draped off shoulder for girls/tuxedo for boys OR you could pay for the deluxe package to have outdoor shots that reflected your personal style. However, life happened and we moved. So, the high school I ended up graduating from didn’t offer that. They only did the standard velvet crap. That pretty much summed up my high school years. Today when I shot this picture, I giggled at how long it took me to finally take the kind of picture I always wanted for my real life senior yearbook photo. Better late than never, I suppose…even if its virtual.
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 ~ Arlissa – Healing
She’s just a girl, and she’s on fire Hotter than a fantasy, longer like a highway She’s living in a world, and it’s on fire Feeling the catastrophe, but she knows she can fly away Oh, she got both feet on the ground And she’s burning it down Oh, she got her head in the clouds And she’s not backing down This girl is on fire ~ Alicia Keys – Girl on Fire
