Still Learning

“I am still learning.” ~ Michelangelo

I borrowed this quote from a friend of mine’s profile. It is so profound in its simplicity and then when I realized who is credited for saying it, I was instantly humbled. When such a great artist can maintain his humility, I find it ironic when people boast of their greatness. I believe that if we ever stop learning, we stop living. I try to learn at least one new thing a day, even if its just some random useless piece of trivia. I want each day to present me with new information.

More Skin

Some people on Facebook have expressed surprise at the fact that there’s so much more than just skin at the Skin Fair. It’s always been more than skin, at least as far back as I can remember. Last year several new bento heads were introduced. This year I’ve not seen as many heads being released. However, there are lots of shapes, tattoos, and cosmetics, as well as an abundance of skins.  Seriously, reduce your scripts and your complexity as much as you can, then head on over and check it out. There’s plenty of amazing creations for everyone.
Today I’m showing you the A R T E – Sweetie Skin. I just love how the light catches on this skin and couldn’t resist going black and white for the main photo. However, you can see all three shades in the photo at the bottom.

It Really Ain’t Magic

Actually dating in sl, is like playing tag in six random playgrounds all connected by one tunnel. Its just a clusterfuck of madness, selfishness, and stupidity. Oh I’m sure there are a few good ones in there somewhere, but unless you in the mood to dig through a haystack looking for a gold needle…well, good fucking luck.
Ooooh, Mr Privacy…..You put all your business out there on Facebook and then you seem surprised when you get called on your shit. You tell one girl she can’t take pictures of you, because it will cause drama. Meanwhile, you’re on Facebook with a girl in your lap one day (not the one you told not to take pictures) and you’ve got another girl taking pictures of you a week later…all the while still telling the ONE girl she can’t take pictures of you. Now, I’m not sure what you’re trying to hide and I don’t care, but seriously….if you’re trying to run around and be some mega player on the down low, you might wanna lose your Facebook account OR I dunno, be aware of who can see what…oh but wait, do you know everyone’s friends? Not at the rate you’re going!
Oh, and you? You don’t want a relationship, but you want demands on a girl’s time. She didn’t answer you fast enough? She didn’t beg and plead for your attention? She actually does something in sl, beside standing around a club 24/7? Get over yourself. This girl has a life and its full of friends and hobbies. Ya know what? You’re right! I don’t have time for you and your needy ass!
*laughs* And you, you crawl out of the woodwork with your sweet words once every other week and think its getting somewhere? No. When you spoke to me several times a week, yeah, it felt like we might be headed somewhere. The only place we’re heading with all your little disappearing acts is….wait, who am I talking about? Oh yeah, that’s right, I forgot about you cuz you dipped out for two weeks without so much as a word.
*rolls her eyes & chuckles* Ooooh, my poor sweet, booty call….you were fun for a while, but when I asked for an actual conversation you suddenly turn mute. Guess your momma parked you in front of porn as a kid and those are the only words you learned. *yawns* Well, hell, they still say em in porn, what do I need you for?
And then there’s this wittle guy, who thinks that cuz we hung out one time, that I owe him an explanation for ANYTHING I do. ROFL. Honey, you just need to go crawl back between your momma’s legs, cuz you ain’t done yet.
Ooooh lookit, its the big bad wolf! You seem to think that coming to a me about a guy I know, who happened to ask someone about you is the least dramatic way to do things? Uhm, no. How about you go directly to the man himself and ask him why he was asking your “EX” questions on my behalf, since you’re so sure it was indeed on my behalf. And ffs, I would hope you’d do the same for your female friends….but wait, do you have any that you haven’t tried to fuck already? Cuz the only one I know sure seems set on getting rid of you. I know I’m done. So, take your little happy feet on down the road.

These are just a sample of the types of guys I’ve been dealing with since my break up 3 months ago. While he has already moved on to someone else. So much for that break up excuse he handed me. *rolls her eyes* I’m so done with these assholes in SL. Yeah, I’m gonna get lonely, its true. But ya know what? I’ll take my own company over their’s any day. I actually enjoy my own company. I make myself laugh all the time and well, I’ve even argued out loud with myself. So, clearly there’s more than enough madness going on in this lil head of mine that I don’t need anymore, right?

Squeal Worthy

I don’t think guys do this, but I can’t be sure. I am pretty sure they wouldn’t admit it. However, almost all girls I’ve ever known has done this. Oh, I’m sorry, what is THIS? Well, its all about that message we received or perceived. However, I have been known to throw myself across a bed and flail my legs about as I squeal over whatever fortune has befallen me. Whether I was squealing about having completed my final exams with flying colors or the guy I’ve liked forever is finally looking my way. Oh it could be as simple a new pair of boots that I’ve wanted for a very long time and I don’t want to take them off. I just want to swoon over them for a while.
Either way, I’ve had a few rather rough days lately, nothing I really want to talk about. However, I’m hoping we all get some squeal worthy moments as we approach the weekend. I think we all deserve it, don’t you?

Hey There, Wanna Talk About Skin Fair?

So, I’m blogging for the Skin Fair put on by Pale Girl Productions. I have to admit, I’m a bit nervous, because as a rule I’ve not really blogged skins before. I will list the skin that I’m wearing, but aside from that….its not something I’ve really done. PGP specifically asked that we blog the skins a certain way and this, too, is something I don’t usually do. So this is my first attempt. I will say this, it doesn’t seem to matter which body or head you have, even if you’re still fully system (please update yourself!), there’s something for everyone at the Skin Fair….cosmetics, eyelashes, eyes, skins, shapes, heads, and even tattoos!

I wore my own shape, as I’m very particular about my shape and rarely ever buy them. My current shape was a compilation of ideas between my friend Sora and I. I’ve told her she should make shapes, but I’m not sure she really has the time. So, scroll on down and have a looksie at all the goodies I have to show you.♥

Opening My Treasure Chest

Alright, so I just got my Treasure Chest, the theme for March is The Royal Treatment, featuring exclusive designs from twelve designers. I don’t do video blogging so I’m just going to write as I open. Maybe one day I’ll tackle the whole vlogging concept, but I really really hate my voice…soooo, its not likely. You just gotta read..*nods*…so here we go…

Wow, so I was wrong in my previous post about the eyes being from Oxide, they’re from Adoness. This is an extensive set of eyes, all the system eyes are included as well as some sculpt prims for regular and full bright eyes, along with a HUD that offers 20 color choices and you can even color each eye differently. This is a huge plus for a lot of people and an option that I adore. I don’t use it much, but I do like having the option.
Oh how I love thee, Cubic Cherry. I’ll be using the “crowns” along with the orbs from last month. These are fantastic! While called a crown, as it does have a band around the head, I’m going to refer to these are horns, because that’s what really pops…these are luscious!
Faida has provided us with a lovely wine colored role play gown. While not my normal style by a long shot, I have to say they’ve managed to pull off a suede texture on this dress that’s very very well done.
We’ve got some rather large, ornate earrings from austris, along with a notecard that simply says, “We apologize, this is the smallest size of earrings, and  it works correctly only in statistic poses, not with ao. :(” This made me tilt my head a bit, but I had to put them on to see…Honestly? They work fine with my AO. Yes, they dip into my shoulders at times, because I have a squirmy AO and the earrings are large, but its not that noticeable. These are really pretty. They come with a HUD that allows you three metal options for three parts of the earrings. I like these…while yes, most likely they’ll be used in photos more than anywhere else…they’re very nice.
Abstract Soul has given us the scepter that no proper royal would be without. There are two versions included…animated and non-animated. The animated simply poses you arm so that you can hold the scepter up. While I do wish it had come with some color options, I have to say…this is cute. I’m already thinking of ways to use this.
Straight away, I love the packaging for Fallen Gods…I might even use that in a picture..*laughs*..I realize that’s not supposed to matter, but this is cute! Okay, but inside is Omega appliers for heads and bodies, there’s even a slink nails applier. The skin/tattoo layers are called Gold Royale and its going to give you avatar the midas touch. Okay, that was my first thought anyway.
While Oxide did not deliver eyes, they did deliver a magnificent Mer Crown…YES! I called the mermaid thing! This is super cute and will go quite nicely with a mermaid tail! This is really pretty. Comes with a HUD that allows you some rather extensive pastel color options and with this crown I shall rule the oceans!
The Half Moon Market brings us a very odd looking helmet thing with knives protruding from it. There are two versions…Best Served Cold (clean) and Vengeance Taken (bloody) along with Princely Pie which is what I’m going to assume is a cake or pie made from the prince? There’s blood, so I that’s why I assume that…it could be berries. *laughs* I do so love bloody things in my inventory!
Oh my goodness!! Unrepentant brought the frog!!! Two versions..one to hold, one to rez and this little frog prince is freaking adorable!! I love him sooo much!!!
Ok, moving right along…Stitched delivers the Chayle Cape complete with HUD. While this is not fitted or sized for mesh bodies…as I stand here wearing absolutely nothing but the XXS-NX sized cape, I think this might just go well over other clothing. I will point out two things, there’s a HUD that allows you to color this cape to just about any color you want and there are some unrigged buttons included. The buttons are not working out for me as they float around and do not line up with the cape which is rigged.
Ersch has gone above and beyond with a gorgeous cage. So many options! There’s two you can hold, one with  a pose, one without.  There’s two to rez, one for decor for sitting with three sitting poses and one much bigger one for decor. There are two HUDs and this is going to be fun to play with. I can use this in photos and decor! I love this!
Last but not least, Rowanwood really shines with the Sovereign Born Royal Chaise and Oil Lamp. This is a lovely piece of furniture and will go very nicely with any royal decor.

For today, I present two items from the Treasure Chest…the frog and the earrings…along with a gorgeous gown to present you with my version of Mary Sibley of Salem. (Awesome freaking show if you’ve never watched it…first two seasons are on Netflix.) You can call me Sady Sibley…*nods*

Five Letters

“It pleases you to say you’re sorry when you’re not
It’s a dangerous slip of the tongue”
Tei Shi – How Far

It’s a funny thing…apologies. We often say that one proves their love, but we rarely speak of proving an apology. Sorry…one of the most overused five letters words in the English language. More often than not, the word is used casually…like we bump into someone, we say sorry instead of excuse me or pardon me. So, an apology isn’t necessary, but we give it to show we acknowledge what we’ve done, but do we really mean it? I’m as guilty as anyone else of doing this, so please don’t think I’m pointing fingers.
To truly be sorry is to amend our behavior. If you’re sorry you’ve not been a better friend, then be a better one. Don’t apologize to me. Just show me. If you’re sorry that you hurt me, then stop hurting me. Show me you mean it when you say you’re sorry. How far are you willing to go to prove your words?

I’m not sorry to showcase this luscious Tony dress by the endless talent that is Sassy Nitely. She says she’s still learning and I suppose that just means we can continue to see even better designs in the future. She certainly made a simple tube dress into something incredible with her textures and adding that delicate lace trim. Available in six colors for both Maitreya and Hourglass, Chic Moda has certainly hit a homerun with this dress and you can get yours at the latest round of Cosmopolitan. I don’t know how you’ll choose just one, but regardless of how you shop…Happy Shopping♥

Would You Rather….Wednesday #3

So, I’m going for another Would You Rather Wednesday…this might very well be the last one as I’m not sure anyone other than close friends are even reading my blog. *laughs* I get it, sometimes you just want to look at the pictures, grab the info and keep going. If you’re one of the few that does read my posts and want to see more Would You Rather Wednesdays…let me know. Not a big deal either way, I’m surprised I’ve remembered to keep up with it this long. *laughs* Okay, so here we go…
Would you rather Be in jail for ten years or be in the coma for 20 years? Now, I don’t personally like either of these options, but if forced to choose…well, I’m not sure. I’ve been to jail and while I didn’t love it, I actually did have some fun in there. However, the thought of sleeping for 20 years and waking up to a whole new world. That’s rather exciting! I mean, let’s face it…I don’t sleep well. So, 20yrs of sleep? Sign me up! Yes, I think I’ll go with the coma. Nothing compares to some solid sleep in my opinion.

No one is going to force you to choose when it comes to shopping. The only thing limiting your choices is your bank account and I’m telling you…there are some beautiful creations on the grid just waiting to be on your avatar.
