Sunshine

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Making Room for Pizza

They had moved to the big city with dreams of an exciting nightlife. No one had ever anticipated being locked down over a pandemic. These two had been friends their entire lives and had been through all sorts of heart aches, but nothing had compared to this.

As Sady finished off another donut, she rubbed her tummy and sighed, “Thank God workout clothes are stretchy!”

Stef lifted her leg to let another one rip across the room, “OMG! Right!?!?”

Sady scrunched her nose and laughed, “I should try that, maybe I’d have room for more pizza!”

Stef laughed, “You weren’t supposed to hear that!”

Sady gave her a look, “I heard it, smelled it, and watched you lift your leg like a dog to let it out!”

It was right then, that their little Yorkie, Puddin, let out an outrageously disgusting little fart of her own. I guess she’s making room for pizza, too.

Dear Bloggers…again

So, this is directed to bloggers from me as a blog manager, not a fellow blogger. I can’t speak for all blog managers, but I know more than one that feels the same way I do. Time to put things in a little perspective. Here’s the deal based on my limited experience and I’d love to hear from other blog managers on this, as well. Feel free to disagree, but please keep it polite-ish. *laughs*

Bloggers, please don’t argue with your blog manager. It’s fine to ask questions, but when you challenge your blog managers and insult them? Well, guess what? We are human, too. We are not perfect and we make mistakes. Guess what else we do? We talk to each other. If you are a blogger and constantly arguing with your blog manager? You are going to get a reputation for being difficult and as word spreads, you’re not likely to get as many gigs. I’m not saying kiss our butts, that’s ridiculous. However, as a blogger you must be receptive to feedback, both positive and negative. Oh, and if you go running your mouth about the blog manager to the designer, they usually tell us.

Bloggers, please don’t hunt down the blog manager after your application has been rejected to argue about why you should be on the team. There was a reason you were not chosen, its fine if you want to know how to improve, but please stop begging for a spot. It’s not going to work and blog managers talk to each other about that stuff, too.

Bloggers, please refer to the brand you’re speaking about when reaching out to a blogger manager, because some of us work for more than one brand. So, especially if you’re dropping notecards on us, pretty please say which brand you’re talking about.

Lastly, its important that bloggers understand that when a blogger manager gives you feedback or rejects a post, its because we’re doing our jobs. We care about the brand we represent. We are human and make mistakes, just like you and most of us are bloggers, too. Just so you know I’m fully aware that I’m not perfect, I will tell you that I’ve had posts rejected by both CandyDoll and Cynful. They were fully within their rights to reject my posts for whatever reason they wanted, but I knew they were right about those photos. So, I simply did them over and that’s all we want…showcase the item, because remember it is a bloggers job to show off the items being blogged and hopefully make someone else want to own them as well.

Most importantly, we love most of our bloggers…MOST, because without you…we wouldn’t have a job and it is with you that we work together to make the brand the best it can be by sharing their amazing products with our own personalized perception. Don’t ever get discouraged, we all started somewhere and if your heart is in it, you will succeed.

Let’s Dance

In all my years on the grid, I’ve never been one for formal wear. I think a big part of it was that the skirts of yesteryears were so fluffy and big they often swallowed your date and not in a good way. *smirks* Like most things in SL gowns have come a long way and I have never enjoyed them more. Especially when wearing a gown like this Empress Maxi dress from Cynful. The details are incredible. It certainly doesn’t hurt to have such a handsome dance partner. *smiles*

SL never ceases to amaze me and I am never bored in this wondiferous virtual world as there continue to be adventures, new experiences, and new talent at every turn. I am so  very grateful for the amazing aesthetics that the incredible designers introduce into my world.

Make It Happen

“Take your passion
And make it happen”
Irene Cara What A Feeling

Well, not without a few hiccups, but FaMESHed’s 5th Anniversary has kicked off. I have the honor and the privilege of being part of the FaMESHed team and this was my first event opening. WOW! The amount of work that goes into organizing an event and Elvi’s passion is contagious. I won’t go into details, but I can say there’s a great sense of pride and satisfaction to see it in full swing now. To hear people’s reactions to the special anniversary build, knowing how much work into just that aspect of the event.
Oddly enough, I had taken this picture over a week ago and knew I was going with a Flashdance quote. However, as the weekend got away from me between RL and SL…I find myself connecting the two….without really featuring anything from FaMESHed, but you can rest assured…there will be plenty coming in the days ahead.

What if…There Was No Tomorrow?

That’s right, its time for another “What if…” post and today we’re going with the end of the world! We’ve all seen the doomsday prepper people in some form or another. Either a reality show (growls) or movies or some other sort of media. Now, I’m not a big prepper myself, but I do remember my mother loading me down with drinking water right after 9/11. I’m not making light of that awful incident, but my mother (much like many others) feared it was the beginning of World War 3 and had a plan! Her plan was terrible, but she had one.

rebel-hope-fameshed2

That’s not my big what if, though…I’m not thinking of wars or apocalypse. I recently binge watched a show on Netflix called No Tomorrow and the premise of the show is a character that believes an asteroid will destroy the entire planet in less than a year. He has an exact date and there’s a lot more to the show, but it really got me thinking. What if we did know the end of the world was coming on an exact date. I mean the entire planet will cease to exist. What if all the world leaders came together to express that this was indeed happening and we all knew we only has X many days left to live….all of us?

rebel-hope-fameshed4

So, the big What if…there is no tomorrow? How would I handle my last few months on earth? What would become of humanity in its final moments? Would we reach out lovingly to one another or see a world without consequences and go mad? What if we finally saw all of humanity coming together in love and peace at last? It would be the most glorious of days, don’t you think? Although, given recent events, I fear the latter would be closer to the truth. The real “What if..” is this and I pose it to you as a reader with no expectations of an answer, just a question to pose to yourself and perhaps even make you re-think a few things: What if…you believed the world would end in 6 months, 9 months…what would you do first? Write it down. Make a list…don’t think bucket list…think before it’s too late list. I won’t bother you with mine, but let’s show each other some love as if these were our final days.

rebel-hope-fameshed3

Whether the world is going to end or not, make sure you treat yourself and other well. Make every day count and do your best to enjoy each day. Life is precious and it can be gone before you know it. In the meantime, go shopping…treat yourself to some new jewelry or shoes or hair! As seen in the pictures above, you can look pretty damn good with just those things and nothing else. 😈

Artists Do It Better

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary …

Simple Definition of artist

  • : a person who creates art : a person who is skilled at drawing, painting, etc.

  • : a skilled performer

  • : a person who is very good at something

I’ve always struggled with calling myself an artist for the simple fact that I never felt that I was all that “skilled” at anything. Whether its writing, drawing, painting, photography…I’ve just never had that much confidence in my own “work.” Even now, I use a lot of quotation marks when referring to myself and things I’ve done. Like most people, I am my own worst critic.

However, there are those that would argue that anyone that creates something of an artistic nature is an artist. In that case, I guess I could be considered an artist. All I know for sure is that I am definitely creative. Whether or not I create something that others will enjoy is not for me to say. One thing is for sure, there are some truly incredible artists in Second Life and its evident in their beautiful creations as you can see below. ❤
