Feeding my inner fashion junkie

Brand new goods! That’s right, Stealthic has released a brand new hair at Anthem, clearly inspired by Anya Taylor-Joy‘s character, Beth Harmon, from the recent hit The Queen’s Gambit. I loved the story and highly recommend it to anyone looking for something to binge on Netflix. Naturally, Hunter does not disappoint with a fun new short hairstyle. I am already obsessed with Gambit.

Ahh, but Hunter isn’t the only one feeding my inner fashion junkie. Cynful has designed the Mile High Jumpsuit for the upcoming round of Collabor88 and it is fabulous! Now, anyone that reads me regularly knows that my favorite color for fashion is FATPACK! Plus, I’m a very lucky blogger that’s been on the Cynful team since….*thinks for a minute*…2016! Now, I just won’t say much if I don’t have good things to say, but this jumpsuit? OMG, I’m not going to want to stop talking about it nor will I want to take it off anytime soon. This is truly one of the sexiest things I’ve seen in the grid in quite a while. It’s not super revealing, but there are no curves hidden in this sexy number. The hud comes with an option for flat or high feet, too.
It is a bit tricky finding the right shoes to fit under the perfectly flared, unzipped cut, but I am sure you all can find something. I’ve paired a sleek minimal pair of N-Core’s Elvira Heels with mine. I went with a taupe natural color, cuz let’s face it….in this outfit no one is looking at your shoes. Yet, you don’t want something sticking through the back of the shoe either, so chunky pumps are out!

I’ll put it this way. A male friend of mine sent a message to Cynthia of Cynful to thank her for this sexy jumpsuit on behalf of men across the grid. So, if nothing else, you’ll want to hit up Collabor88 for this jumpsuit ASAP.

Raise A Glass

I’ve had this scene set up for this picture for about a week, I finally got the girls pinned down. Then it only took them three hours to finally get pose ready. Lo & behold, we take the picture and now Stef moves quickly. She finishes editing and posts hers straight away. You can see her version here, she did such an amazing job! It took me a bit longer as I’m still learning photoshop, but I’m finally happy with the result.
We genuinely had a blast, but I’m pretty sure I’m the only one in this photo wearing the outfit that I actually picked out for NYE. *laughs* These girls keep me in stitches and I can’t think of a better way to bring in the New Year than laughing with my squad. So, to everyone celebrating the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020, I raise a glass. Happy New Year to you all and I sincerely hope that this year brings us all the love and laughter  we all desire. ♥

Hear Me Now

“I’m at the bottom, can you come let me up?
‘Cause I brought a flower for you
Your friends are faded, let me fill up your cup
And toast to the stars over
The ocean’s flowing
Emotions in the air
I don’t wanna live for nothing
Just wanna be something
I never knew what it took to win
I don’t wanna live for nothing
Just wanna be something
I never knew we’d be more than friends”

Days Long Gone

It is 4:30am and I’m sitting here quietly typing in a room lit only be two computer screens and the occasional bout of lightening. The sound of the rain pitter-pattering faster, then slower against my windows, accompanied by the wind creeping through cracks in the glass, all remind me of some random scene in some scary movie. My mind begins to travel to different times in my life as I check the weather website to make sure this is just a thunderstorm and nothing more serious. That’s what I do now. I’m all grown up and now I worry about things like whether or not a thunderstorm is going to turn into some demonic creation of Gaia sent to remind us whose home we live upon. Do I need to trick my animals into the bathroom along with my purse and medications? Dancing in the deluge no longer an option. Oh but once upon a time….and my mind begins to roam through the remnants of days long gone.

Empty

Olivia O’Brien- Empty

I can’t handle these pressures
All I can say is this stress hurts
Things are supposed to get better
I just need to put myself first
I’m always trying my hardest
Not to pick myself apart, this
Energy’s killing my vibes now
Sometimes I just wanna drown out
All of the thoughts in my mind
Too much going on at the same time
I wish it would stop and I’ve tried, but
Life just sucks then we all die

That’s just reality, yeah don’t lie to me
Yeah I’m fucked up but I don’t wanna be

I wonder if I’m good enough
But maybe I’ve just had too much
To drink, to smoke, to swallow
I’m drownin’ up my sorrows
There’s rules I’ll never follow
Pretend there’s no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow

But I’m empty inside, yeah I’m empty inside
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die
Yeah I’m empty inside, I just don’t feel alive
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die

Wish I could erase my memories
So I could stop feeling so empty
I wish this shit wasn’t so tempting
But it’s hard to resist when there’s plenty
Of things I could do to fuck me up
I wanna let go but I’m feeling so stuck
So all I can do is fill up my cup
And sit here alone hoping no one disrupts

That’s just reality, yeah don’t lie to me
Yeah I’m fucked up but I don’t wanna be

I wonder if I’m good enough
But maybe I’ve just had too much
To drink, to smoke, to swallow
I’m drownin’ up my sorrows
There’s rules I’ll never follow
Pretend there’s no tomorrow
I wish there was no tomorrow

But I’m empty inside, yeah I’m empty inside
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die
Yeah I’m empty inside, I just don’t feel alive
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die

My body’s shakin’
My head is achin’
It feels like my heart is breakin’
My body’s shakin’
My head is achin’
I can’t fix this mess I’m makin’

But I’m empty inside, yeah I’m empty inside
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die
Yeah I’m empty inside, I just don’t feel alive
And I don’t wanna live but I’m too scared to die

Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

I’ve been a very good girl this year. I’ve conserved water by showering with others. By not wearing panties and bras, I used less water, electricity, and detergent doing laundry. I conserved electricity on cold nights by snuggling up close to someone. Our bodies kept each other warm instead of using the heat. As I am so very concerned about your health, I’ve not laid out any milk and cookies for you this year. Instead, I’ll be waiting in the red chair with something organic and naturally sweet just for you. I think you can probably guess what I want for Christmas this year. I’ll see YOU on Christmas Eve.

tenderly yours,
♥SadyClaws♥

Learn To Let Go

Kesha – Learn To Let Go

Been a prisoner of the past
Had a bitterness when I looked back
Was telling everyone it’s not that bad
‘Til all my shit hit the fan
I know I’m always like
Telling everybody, “You don’t gotta be a victim
Life ain’t always fair, but hell is living in resentment
Choose redemption, your happy ending’s up to you”
I think it’s time to practice what I preach
Exorcise the demons inside me
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
The past can’t haunt me if I don’t let it
Live and learn and never forget it
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
Had a boogeyman under my bed
Putting crazy thoughts inside my head
Always whispering, “It’s all your fault”
He was telling me, “No, you’re not that strong”
I know I’m always like
Telling everybody, “You don’t gotta be a victim
Life ain’t always fair, but hell is living in resentment
Choose redemption, your happy ending’s up to you”
So I think it’s time to practice what I preach
Exorcise the demons inside me
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
The past can’t haunt me if I don’t let it
Live and learn and never forget it
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go
I’m done reliving my bad decisions
I see now maybe there’s a reason
Why, I, I, I, I, I, I been through hell and back
Yeah, honestly, it’s what made me who I am
Holding on to wasted time
Gotta learn to let go in life
So I think it’s time to practice what I preach
Exorcise the demons inside me
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
The past can’t haunt me if I don’t let it
Live and learn and never forget it
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go

Hurts Like Hell

Fleurie – Hurts Like Hell

How can I say this without breaking
How can I say this without taking over
How can I put it down into words
When it’s almost too much for my soul alone

I loved and I loved and I lost you
I loved and I loved and I lost you
I loved and I loved and I lost you
And it hurts like hell
Yeah it hurts like hell

I don’t want them to know the secrets
I don’t want them to know the way I loved you
I don’t think they’d understand it, no
I don’t think they would accept me, no

I loved and I loved and I lost you
I loved and I loved and I lost you
I loved and I loved and I lost you
And it hurts like hell
Yeah it hurts like hell

Dreams fight with machines
Inside my head like adversaries
Come wrestle me free
Clean from the war
Your heart fits like a key
Into the lock on the wall
I turn it over, I turn it over
But I can’t escape
I turn it over, I turn it over

I loved and I loved and I lost you
I loved and I loved and I lost you
I loved and I loved and I lost you
And it hurts like hell

Hurts Like Hell

Deva’s Question

I have to admit I was a bit nervous when I did the post, “Dangerous Proposition.” For one thing, I wasn’t sure if anyone would even read the post, much less comment with a suggestion. While there hasn’t been a great deal of responses, I did get enough to keep me writing a bit longer. Today, I’m going to attempt to answer Deva Westland. She said, “You know… one thing I would ask you, blog wise… is kind of that “What would you say to your younger self” thing. I know you gave excellent advice to new bloggers the other month, but is there anything you have learned about yourself, or SL/ your SL through blogging which has been interesting?”
Leave it to Deva to ask me such a loaded question. The problem with talking to myself in the past is that the younger me wouldn’t listen. She never did. I still don’t. I try to, I promise I do, but I’m a student of Hard Knocks. The most valuable lessons in my life have been learned the hardest way possible. I’ve learned a lot more about photography and a good bit about promoting my blog. I’ve learned to become a blog manager and that I actually love being a blog manager as if not more than blogging itself. I just love seeing how creative people can be and I’m blown away by some of the talent. It really does show when a blogger loves what they do vs a blogger that clearly does blogging for free stuff and attention. That’s about as clear of an answer as I can give, Devalicious. I’m not sure if I did your question justice, but I tried. ♥

Wheels

She had been skating since she was in the first grade. She could skate before she even learned how to ride a bike. There was something so free about having wheels under her feet, almost as if she could fly. When she skated she felt free. As a kid she would lose herself in the music skating in circles at the skating rink, but as she got older she found the most joy in skating along in abandoned warehouses and parking garages, provided they had a smooth surface and if they didn’t well, she made a game of jumping cracks and rocks. Sure, she got some bruises and scratches from failed attempts, but that was all part of the fun. She had tried the inline skates, but they just didn’t feel right and she preferred the classic skates and always would.
