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!!!!

Paw to the Jaw

I love my cat. I really do, but I’m starting to understand why people prefer dogs. I woke up this morning to a paw to the jaw. Yep, that’s right, he walked on my face. My reaction was a slinging arm which resulted in a cat flung across the bed, followed by a soft murr. This was not a wounded cat sound. Trust me, I’ve heard plenty of those noises. Step on a cat’s tail just once and  you’ll never forget it. No, just three little gentle murrs. I couldn’t go back to sleep at this point. I had to get up and find out if he was okay. I’m not a monster, ya know? He’s fine. Once he saw that I was awake, his attitude suddenly changed. I swear that he looked at me and in his little meow language said, “Oh, you’re up! Feed me?”
Needless to say, I fed the little bastard and now he’s lying comfortably on his perch, licking himself. I’m pretty sure he’s quite proud of himself this morning. *looks out the window* FFS, the sun isn’t even up yet. I suspect there’s a nap in my future.

The Attention it Deserves

I absolutely love decor, but I find myself struggling with decor blogging more and more. I’m definitely to a point in my blogging career that I no longer apply for teams. I might “reapply” for a team I don’t want to leave, but I’m not looking for more. I’m starting to get back to where I started with all this and that was more about blogging exactly what I wanted, when I wanted. Now I have deadlines that rarely match my inspiration. My passion has always been fashion, but I wanted to do it all. I’m not cutting out decor entirely, but I definitely think I will continue to cut back in the upcoming months. It takes much more time than I have and the more jobs I take on in SL, the less time I have for blogging, especially decor scenes that often take me at least a week to finish. In the end, I often feel that I’m not giving decor the attention it deserves. The next time you’re decorating or shopping, zoom in close and appreciate the tiny details that creators put into their work.

The Clearest Summer

“Another secret of the universe: Sometimes pain was like a storm that came out of nowhere. The clearest summer could end in a downpour. Could end in lightning and thunder.”

Day on the Lake

Not everyone has a beach nearby, but almost everyone has a nice recreational lake within driving distance. Where I live, lakes and rivers are a way of life. All the campsites around these parts are by a body of water. And I can tell you there are few things more beautiful than watching the sun rise over a quiet mist covered lake. So, don’t underestimate a day on the lake, it can be just as relaxing and beautiful as a day at the beach.

Butterfly

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
Butterfly

Calling all my Cool Cats & Kittens

As soon as I saw the Triggered Tagged Kitty headband at Belle, I knew this was a must have. I mean, c’mon…I’m practically a cat. How could I resist? As I dug around in my inventory for “toys” to add to the photo, I came across the perfect addition to my kitty look. I discovered I had Noir’s Meow Gacha – Plug Tail. I quickly added that, as I was already wearing their Nala necklace…also at Belle! So, I’m calling to all you cool cats and kittens…*giggles*…yeah, I said it. C’mon, how can you not love her? I mean, I don’t love what she does exactly, but if you know who I’m talking about and you know me….you know I’m fascinated! Oh yeah, calling all my cool cats and kitten readers…there’s some cute lil cat goodies waiting for you at Belle…including the sexy lingerie I’m wearing!

Middy’s Room

So, when I was putting this scene together, I immediately knew I needed a unicorn. *sighs* I really don’t like unicorns. Its a long story, but they’re kind of a sort point with me…*giggles*…point…get it? Of course, you do. The instant I put that unicorn in there, I knew this was Middy’s room. I won’t get too much into who Middy is, but I’ll give you a brief description that will help you understand some of the elements of this room. Middy is an amazing woman that loves pink and unicorns, but ironically hangs out with vampires. (Hence, the casket mirror.) I jokingly told her that I built her a bedroom and she’s ready to move in. Sadly, this is created on a platform and is the only room in the house that has furniture in it. I kinda feel like a predator waiting to capture her and keep her hidden away. Though, to be fair, she is a bit of a introvert and might just enjoy that.

Another Time Zone

Dating in Second Life can be tricky, especially when there are major time zone differences. Joe and I are making it work, but its not always easy. There’s a 7 hr difference between us and he’s got a pretty busy real life schedule. Fortunately for us, I’m available more often than I’m not. So, I’m able to work around his schedule more. Sometimes though, real life gets in the way and this picture epitomizes how it can feel sometimes when planning a surprise for the one you love in another time zone.

No Hat, Yet, Sis!

Would you look at that? Sady got herself a Valentine! Well, he found me, but the point is we’re together and we’re happy. It’s been a very long time since I seriously dated anyone in Second Life. I tried to date a friend of mine a few months ago, but that just didn’t work out for us and he eventually left Second Life. He even gave me his avatar. That’s two guys that have given me their avatars now…so, if you need a male model, hit me up! LOL Hmm, maybe I should change my name to the Black Widow! RIP Joe, you’re doomed now! Nah, I really like Joe…I might even love him…*blushes*
Alright, so I’ll fill you in…cuz everyone keeps asking the same question. “How did you meet?” Well, we actually met years ago at a club named Exodus that my sister owned. (Technically, she still owns it, but she closed it a few years ago.) Apparently he was a noob then and I was too caught up in some other bullshit to remember him. Though, to be fair, I did remember his name. Turns out he also dated a dear friend of mine. The minute I realized he had dated my friend, Tempy, I had to talk to her. Unlike so many people in the world, I don’t like to date men that my friends have dated. (Another reason I’ve been single so long.) Well, not only did Tempy give her blessing, but she’s become our biggest cheerleader. In fact, I’m not sure that I would even be with him now if not for her encouragement. Ffs, I got off track again! Why didn’t you stop me? I know…I know, you couldn’t if you tried.
Okay, so he hit me up on Facebook with a joke about a meme I had shared. He had my attention straight away with his sense of humor. From there, we met inworld to hang out…and well, we’ve been inseparable ever since. He’s pretty freaking amazing. He’s made me laugh, cry, yawn (time zones suck), and most of all…he’s made me very very happy. He’s even battled my demons (an ongoing job, sadly) and nothing I’ve done has run him off yet. *grins*  Now here’s the part that my sister will latch onto…he’s even mentioned a wedding..*shudders*…I told him he can propose on our one year anniversary. Until then, no more wedding talk…so to Kess, “NO HAT YET, SIS!”
