Retail Therapy Is Real

Retail therapy is a great quick fix for the blues or even the magentas (100pts if you get that). I mean, who doesn’t feel better after shopping? It’s exciting! Just don’t look at the bill or how much you spent right away. No sense ruining the buzz for no reason. Granted retail therapy is a short term solution for a bad mood and has no real therapeutic value, but at least at the end of it you have something to show for your money. Thus, I must argue that it is a far better vice than drugs (except marijuana lol), alcohol, or gambling (especially if you suck at it.) While, it none of the aforementioned proclivities can replace actual therapy, it is a great way to perk yourself up.
There are some lasting benefits to shopping, too. You buy multiple items and you get excited each time you use/wear one of your new items for the first time. Then as you discover more about the items, its even more exciting. OMG, you mean this dress has pockets!?!? See? We all know women love some pockets! This blender is also a food processor? WHAT?!?! See? Exciting! Again, I’m not suggesting you use retail therapy to put yourself in the poor house or to replace actual therapy, but the next time you’re feeling a little blue…give it a try, I think you’ll discover that I’m right….as usual. *grins*

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?

The time’s not near, it’s here

When the world is laughing at itself, all she can do is cry
But when the world is scared and crying out, she laughs fearless inside
‘Cause she believes ’til she can see
Floating freely, breathing easy over stratospheres
Eternity throws glory, stars redeeming all the years
Do you believe and will you dream
Turning the pages
Open these cages
Quiet days we can hear this sound
Heaven’s throne in the earth come down
The decree’s out now
Never been so loud
Making way for the undoing
Of the death in everything
The decree’s out now
Never been so loud
The time’s not near, it’s here
A holy fear is here
It’s here

my blood couldn’t keep you

I’m sorry but your story isn’t adding up
Think your religion is a lie to keep my mouth shut
So I won’t testify the crimes you’re keeping score of
Why don’t you throw me to the wolves I thought you were one

You were standing there like an angry god
Counting out my sins just to cross them off
Saying that my tongue was too loud to trust
And that my blood couldn’t keep you

My dear, you’re not so innocent
You’re fooling Heaven’s gates
So you won’t have to change
You’re no saint, you’re no savior

Your revelations don’t look nothing like the pictures
You read between the lines and don’t stick to the scriptures
You only follow rules if others follow with you
That doesn’t sound so holy only playing victim
