Abracadabra

I heat up, I can’t cool down
You got me spinning
‘Round and ’round
‘Round and ’round and ’round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows
Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burning flame
Burning flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher
Abra abracadabra
I wanna reach out and grab ya
Abracadabra

Cozy Up For the Night

I’ve been soo crazy busy lately that I’m just now getting around to blogging this adorable set from Hideki that you can grab at TLC for a few more days. It closes on the 10th, after that you’ll have to check his mainstore. This set is so cute and even my photo doesn’t do it justice. However, I couldn’t help but want to make a man cave that the girl took over….so here it is with lots of pink pieces from one of Bamse’s new sets to be found at the October round of Arcade. What better way to enjoy this room than relaxing in a comfy shirt from Vinyl, paired with some super cute sweats? A girl can watch just about any scary movie with her trusted pup beside her, right? And thanks to some pieces from Kraftwork’s new set (also at the Arcade), I was able to set the tone of horror movie night. So, I’m all about horror films in October…and honestly, I’m so obsessed with this scene, I just wanna crawl directly into it and cozy up for the night.

My Favorite Time of the Year

It’s my favorite time of the year, not only is my birthday on the 6th, but my favorite holiday is on the 31st. I realize its not a worldwide holiday and it must seem absolutely bonkers to areas that do not celebrate Halloween or Hallows Eve. However, I absolutely love all the cutesy pumpkins and ghosties. I also love the ghoulish things and all the scary movies! So, I present to you my first cute Halloween decor post. Naturally, if you remove all the Halloween stuff, you still have a lovely sitting area, but we’re not going to do that just yet…we still have 26 days to go!! *squeals*

Dragonflies

Ever since I was a little girl, dragonflies have brought me comfort. I remember my friends were terrified by them. Their name alone does seem a bit ominous. However, I was always fascinated by them. Their beautiful quad wings and the iridescent sheen of their bodies almost hypnotized me. Of course, I also thought they were related to fairies. *laughs* The thing is that no matter how bad things were in my life, the moment I saw a dragonfly I felt like God was telling me that everything was going to be alright. While I no longer believe in God, I do very much believe that everything is going to be alright whenever I’m surprised by a dragonfly…whether a real one or not. To this day, they continue to bring me comfort. It’s probably the only insect to ever bring me comfort…lol.

But then you read

An Abundance

I’ve been super sick. My symptoms started on Saturday and have changed a bit since then. I haven’t thrown up since Sunday, but Monday night and Tuesday I had a low grade fever that has gone up and down, periodically throughout the day, fluctuating between 99.5 & 101. It’s weird having a fever, I honestly cannot remember the last time I had one. Seems to have gone down now. So, I’m sure I’m already on the mend.
Of course, when I told people my wide range of symptoms, everyone automatically jumped to the Covid conclusion. Unlike far too many people out there, I am vaccinated. (I will not even go into that.) I never felt like it was Covid, nor do I believe it was the flu. I seriously never leave my house and the only person I’ve encountered is my mother, who is also vaccinated…75yrs old, and healthier than me. Also, my symptoms were pretty much the symptoms for EVERYTHING.
I think what I found the most amusing in all of this was the wide variety of advice people were giving me. They forgot that my mother is a retired registered nurse or that I’m almost 53 years old. Drink tea, drink water, drink juice….don’t drink tea, avoid juice, don’t drink too much water. Eat soup. Don’t eat. Eat crackers. Eat toast. Get a covid test. Get some rest. Try to exercise. Get some sunlight. Dark cold room. None of my friends are doctors, but several do work in the medical field or have. Yet, even they have contradicting advice. They all mean well and I love them for that. Better to have too much advice from an abundance of people that care, than not a single IM from anyone that already knows you’re sick af.
On Sunday, I thought perhaps it was food poisoning, as I ate some questionable romaine lettuce. All I know if I ever die by lettuce, I’m gonna be PISSED!
For now, I’ll just sit on my land and do my lil fishing game. It relaxes me and I love my little sl home on the Blake. Feel free to come visit. ♥

The heart beats in its cage

Well, I don’t feel better when I’m fucking around
And I don’t write better when I’m stuck in the ground
So don’t teach me a lesson ’cause I’ve already learned
Yeah, the sun will be shining and my children will burn
Oh, the heart beats in its cage
I don’t want what you want, I don’t feel what you feel
See, I’m stuck in a city but I belong in a field
Yeah, we got left, left, left, left, left, left, left
Now it’s three in the morning and you’re eating alone

Oh, the heart beats in its cage

All our friends, they’re laughing at us
All of those you loved, you mistrust
Help me, I’m just not quite myself
Look around, there’s no one else left

The heart beats in its cage

Spruce up your sliving space

One of my favorite aspects about mesh is the land impact that is saved. I remember years ago, feeling like such a prim whore, because I wanted those little details that really personalize a sliving space. However, back then you could use up 100 prims just decorating an end table. Now, most of the knick knacks are 1-3 li at most and I am so grateful. With that said, if you’re like me and love giving your sliving space some individual flare, then you need to know about Spruce.
Spruce is a new store and yes, the creator is a friend of mine. Most of you are familiar with Harlow Heslop from Burrow Co and various other community spaces before that. However, she has taken on creating adorable decor items like pillows, candles, and now picture frames. I’m a huge fan of frames, as most of my friends and family are photographers. I love displaying their beautiful faces and talents around my home. I encourage you all to check out her store, located on the Burrow Co sim, as well as taking a good look at some of the other little decorative decor elements being made at various decor stores. Don’t limit your vision to complete decor sets, but mix things up. I hope that my photo showcases a little bit about that very subject and if my post doesn’t inspire you, please take a look at some of the amazing decor shots you can find in some of the home groups on flickr.

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?
