Family day at the beach

I wanted to do a family day at the beach kind of photo, but with fur babies instead of kids. I mean, I don’t have any kids in RL and the one I have in SL….well, if I took him to the beach, he’d run around naked and his ginger (though quite handsome) ass would get sunburned from head to toe! So, fur babies it is! I even included a video of an adorable puppy at the beach.
One of the things this photo extra special for me is that it features some of the new releases you can find at the current round of TLC which opened two days ago. I’m so excited about this round. It really has a little bit of everything. I swear each one is getting better and better, so prepare yourselves, cuz I’ll be sharing as many of the gorgeous creations as I possibly can!
Another reason this photo is special, is because it also features a couple of items from Evolve. So, I know what you’re thinking…”What? Another freaking event?” Well, hold on a minute, this is not an event you fight your way into, while standing around waiting for everything rez as more avatars pour in on top of you, bumping you (which doesn’t hurt, so stop whining)…etc etc. NO. This is a mainstore event. You will start at Seraphim, grab the HUD and proceed to be whisked away on a magic carpet…ok, ok, its just a tp, calm down. You’ll be magically transported (better? GAWD!) to one mainstore after another. Each store will have a brand new release created just for the event, PLUS….you can look around at that creator’s other delightful designs. You can join store groups and grab great gifts. This is more than a shopping event…THIS is a shopping adventure!
All in all, this post contains a lot of things I’m involved in professionally. Since I’m the assistant blog manager for Tableau Vivant, Glam Affair, and now Evolve…annddd, I’m the owner of TLC. Not to mention that I consider several of the designers featured to be dear friends of mine. I am so blessed to have such talented people in my life. I wonder if I piled them all up and rolled around naked on them some of their talent would rub off on me?

I’m living and I’m dreaming

Today went really well
I didn’t wake up in a panic spell
It was fine, even though I fell
Deeper and deeper in a manic hell
Whoa, I’m living and I’m dreaming
Trying to stay even, oh
Whoa, I’m training for no reason
Apologize, no feelings, oh
No, I don’t need your help
To make me sick, to make me ill
I don’t need anybody else
‘Cause I can break my heart myself
I don’t need your help
Getting off of this carousel
I don’t need anybody else
‘Cause I can break my heart myself

I'm living and I'm dreaming

Doing my best

I have been sick af the last couple of days. A lot of my symptoms could easily be stress related…like IBD & Fibromyalgia. Both have been flaring up, which in turns affects other issues, like back pain and headaches. However, I’ve spent a good amount of time in bed, mostly because I have no choice, and I’m trying very hard to reduce my stress. Honestly, I don’t feel that stressed. I know I have a lot on my plate, but I don’t feel stressed. I feel like I have things under control. So, I’m not sure what’s going on. Perhaps it’s something else entirely. Perhaps it’s some sense of impending doom lingering in the back of my mind somewhere, because I still struggle with the concept of being content, happy, and actually loving myself. Thanks to not having insurance and living in the great U.S. of A…I’m just going to need to suffer through whatever it is. In the meantime, I’ll be doing my best to carry on.

We’re made of flesh, circuit and bone

Neon lights glisten off the streets
The moonlight swallowed up by breathing electricity
Salvation hovers in the sky
Dream of a life inside while we escape just to survive
Let go, take flight
Dreams begin to reignite
So clear, so bright
We’re glowing in the dead of night
Plug in, online
The data stream linking our minds
Circuits entwined
We’ll dream of Neo-Tokyo tonight
We’re made of flesh, circuit and bone
The only world we’ve known, these empty streets we walk alone
Salvation blocking out the Sun
Beneath its shadow cast I dream with my Aphelion

Kitsune…huh?

I’d say its fairly obvious that I’m not into anime or even Asian culture. Though, I do love some Asian cuisine! So, the first time I saw or even heard of a kitsune was in Second Life. Even then, I wasn’t all that interested. I just assumed it was a cute creature from Anime. I was like, “Kitsune…huh?” Eventually, I looked it up! What I found surprised me.

Kitsune in the literal sense is the Japanese word for fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore; in English, kitsune refers to them in this context. Stories depict legendary foxes as intelligent beings and as possessing paranormal abilities that increase as they get older and wiser.Wikipedia

If you keep reading the Wiki page about it, you’ll discover that the more tails it’s more powerful, older, and wiser. So, as you can see by just the little bit of information on the Wiki page, kitsune isn’t an anime thing after all. They are part of Japanese folklore more so than anime. Now, I just feel stupid for always assuming that’s what they were. Just a gentle reminder to do a little research before we go running off at the mouth about things we don’t really know about.

I knew you’d leave me

I never should have called
‘Cause I knew you’d leave me
But I didn’t think you could do it so easily
I never should have held your hand
On that cold rainy night
‘Cause, further along, it would cause another fight
Stranger, that’s all I see
When I look into your eyes
A soulmate who wasn’t meant to be
Stranger, who knows all my secrets
Can pull me apart and break my heart
A soulmate who wasn’t meant to be

My dog day afternoon

So, this picture took me on a wild ride. I knew as soon as I saw this big beautiful beast what kind of photo I wanted to take. I knew exactly where. What I didn’t know was what song I’d put with it or what I would write about. I could write about how beautiful the sim is at Burrow Co. I could write about how awesome the pets at Rezz Room are, but I feel like I’ve done both of those things in the past. After taking the picture, I was thinking, “Isn’t there a song about a dog day afternoon?” So, off to YouTube, I went. What I discovered is that no, its not a song, its a movie! It’s an Al Pacino movie! AND I’ve never seen it! Then I realized how old the movie was and took a moment to mourn my youth. That movie is almost 50yrs old. *sighs* Turns out, its based on a true story, too. My afternoon was quickly filled with Al Pacino and learning about the true story. The movie was really good, of course. However, that movie has absolutely nothing to do with my photo. So, here we have it…another post with no song. *gasps* I know, y’all gonna have to start reading again if this continues! *laughs*
p.s. I added a trailer link for you, in case you wanted to know about the movie.

Don’t want no part of your hipster scene

Hide me in the forest green
Don’t want no part of your hipster scene
I’d rather die, be buried alive
All I want is to be happy
But what is happy
Looking up at the fallen stars
In a black sky you don’t know where you are
Give me space, give me no more sound
Give my regards from the underground

Don't want no part of your hipster scene

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!!!!
