Collabor88 Shines Bright

So many good things I want to tell you about! Oh my goodness! Let’s start at the top and work our way down. Stealthic has been out of pocket for a while. We’ve all been wondering when he’d be back and when we’d get some more of his amazing hair. Well, just in time for Collabor88’s birthday round, he’s back and he did not disappoint! I went out on a limb and grabbed the black/white pack of Porcelain, then I did something I never do…I used the tinting hud. I wanted a slight brown tint to the light black hair. Not only did it work, but I’m super stoked with the results.
Now, let’s move to the gorgeous necklaces draping my neck! Supernatural has delivered the perfect balance of delicate and jeweled with their Stelar set. You get your choice of silver or gold chains, but there’s a hud that offers an endless array of jewel tones to match anything you choose to wear them with. Not only that, but these beautiful chains are separate. You can wear one or all three! I love these kinds of options.
I’ll wrap this up as I confess that my photo does not begin to do this Diamond Dress justice. Cynful has found a way to deliver bling in a whole new way. The diamond waist band is option, there are also diamond straps. So many choices for the diamonds colors, but it doesn’t stop there. No, the Cynful team went all the way! You can adjust the glittering and the glow! All three of these amazing finds can be found at the birthday round of Collabor88. This is one round you do not want to miss, because if you’re like me….oh my goodness…Collabor88 is shining brighter than ever!

Not For Rent

Whether its an sl rumor, some fake ass hater written post on slsecrets, or a full on Facebook attack, we could all learn something from the celebrities in Hollywood. Stop feeding the trolls. These cyber bullies can only take up space in our heads if we let them and I don’t know about you, but there are no vacancies in mine. The space in my head is not for rent and I’m damn sure not going to let someone take up residence there for free. The only power these wretched people have over you is the power you give them. They feed off your fury, your misery, and your pain. Take that away from them and they will surely starve. They crave that reaction. They crave the attention. No more. Turn on that no vacancies sign and tell these people that space in your mind is not for rent. You’ll be amazed at how quickly they go away.

Everywhere I Look

I use songs in my blogs a lot. Sometimes its because I can’t find the words to say what I’m feeling, but some incredible musician has them already in a song. So, I borrow their words and talents to help express myself. Today, I’m going to share a song that means a great deal to me. It reminds me of a special person from my past. He was an amazing individual and loved me like no one else I’ve ever known. We couldn’t make it work, because his ignorance and stupidity drove me insane. I had no patience for it, but at the end of the day being in his arms was home. There was a passion in our relationship that can never be replicated. I destroyed him and now he’s dead. I will never forgive myself for what I did to him.

The song is Something I Can Never Have (still) by Nine Inch Nails.  Mind you, this is the same man that made me hate AC/DC. Though now that he’s gone, for some reason, I tend to be more open to the older songs, especially the ones he played regularly on his electric guitar. Isn’t it strange how people can leave such a mark in our lives? I always thought we’d cross paths again someday, but it never happened. The last time I saw him was a confrontation at a gas station…he cried from the pain….I cried from the regret. I was a different person then. I was reckless and self-centered. Even with all his issues, for he was far from perfect, he did not deserve what I did to him. I will live with that shame for the rest of my life.

RIP JLM♥

Live Free
I still recall the taste of your tears 
Echoing your voice just like the ringing in my ears 
My favorite dreams of you still wash ashore 
Scraping through my head ’till I don’t want to sleep anymore

Join Me

So for a whole week, Josh and I broke up. His RL was getting in our way, but somehow we could not stay away from each other. So, we’re officially back together with some new boundaries in place and I’m pretty sure we both cried last night as I proposed this time, by simply saying, “Come home, please. I need you.” With that said, our first official picture back together…lol…sorta…me asking him to join me in bed as we tucked in for the night. ♥

If I Have an Angel

I was born on a Sunday morning. My devote Christian grandmother told my mom that it meant I would have extra angels looking over me. As I was not a particularly graceful child (or adult for that matter) my mother would often say, “Your angels are working overtime today!” As I got older and continued to be anything but graceful, my mother would beg my extra angels to look after me and to have mercy on her. *laughs* I see a lot of memes with angels facepalming that say something about how people’s angels must look watching over them. Every time I see one, I just chuckle. My grandmother passed away when I was eleven. My mother insisted that she joined the ranks of angels looking over me. What occurred in my life the following year was confirmation that there were no angels watching over me.
As I grew older, I would sometimes imagine that there were still a few angels lingering about and just maybe they were dosing out some karma on those that crossed me, but eventually I grew to believe that wasn’t true either. I know some people do believe in angels and I have to say I think its a beautiful sentiment, but for me…nah, I don’t believe in them anymore. However, the concept of angels has always been quite fascinating. I especially love the way they are represented on Supernatural. I realize not all of my readers have seen that show and some may have just started it, so I won’t go into any details and spoil it. The entire concept of God, angels, Lucifer, demons…all of it…ages old, but the way the stories are told on Supernatural almost makes me want to believe in them again. At least that story makes a bit more sense to me, but alas to believe their story means I must also believe in all the monster presented, as well.

angry angel

For now, I’ll just present you with this picture and the thought that if I have an angel watching over me, this is what I think my angel probably looks like…sometimes she is stunned and pointing her finger at me as if to say, “You did it AGAIN!” She would surely be angry and frustrated to say the very least.

Apex Predator

Okay, so its been a week of fluffy and I’m quite over it. *laughs* Y’all didn’t expect that madness to last, did you? Good, cuz I’m back and I’m feeling some Otep this morning. Soooo, without further adieu, I give you one of my favorite Otep songs and the lyrics.

She’s pounding on the door
She’s crawling on the floor
Oh, she’s so coy
She’s scratching on the walls
She’s clawing at the gauze
She’s so coy
She’s gnawing on the ropes
She’s pulling at the hooks
She’s so coy
Oh, you know she wants it
The way that she taunts me
Damn, she’s so coy
It’s the Apex Predator
With a sermon for the listener
Seduce & Destroy
Your head upon a stick
Would look really sick
But they would call me crazy
For the way I spoke to it
I’d ask about it’s day
Did it miss me while I was away?
Tight lipped from the stitches
It wouldn’t have much to say
The rest would be kept in a
Tight little dress
Propped up in the corner
A perfect little pet
Locked in a box
So I can keep stock
A trophy to show me
That all is not lost
The writing on the wall
A psalm

Bloom

“In the morning when I wake
And the sun is coming through,
Oh, you fill my lungs with sweetness,
And you fill my head with you.”
The Paper Kites  Bloom

Warning: Mushy Post

bloom

My friends have wondered what’s become of me, because I’ve gone from this cynical, anti-love, frozen heart, bitter bitch to this mushy, suddenly romantic, crazy in love girl. Yes, I said girl instead of woman. To put it quite simply, the way Josh makes me feel..well…*blushes*…very much a young girl again. I simply can’t get enough of him and this post is dedicated to him for teaching me to love again. Not just to love others, but myself. He has truly inspired me in ways I never imagined and it is with him that I feel like a flower in my garden. Its my turn to bloom and that’s what I’m doing. For even when I struggle to believe in myself, he never stops believing in me or encouraging me. I can’t know how long this will last, but for as long as it does I’m going to embrace it. I wish this for everyone. I truly hope that you can all find a love for yourself that is this grand…whether you get there on your own or with the guidance of another. ♥

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*

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.

It’s Oh So Quiet

“It’s oh so quiet
Shh shh
It’s oh so still
Shh shh
You’re all alone
Shh shh
And so peaceful until
You fall in love
Zing boom
The sky up above
Zing boom
Is caving in
Wow bam
You’ve never been so nuts about a guy
You want to laugh you want to cry
You cross your heart and hope to die”
Bjork It’s Oh So Quiet

secret3

It’s rather funny to me how relationship can really mark time in our lives…well for those of us that aren’t especially good at relationships anyway. I watch the people who fall in and out of love in SL, every other week and it makes me giggle. However, I kinda get it. For me it takes a little longer than a week or two to fall, much less get over it, but when it does hit me…its usually quite unexpected. I’ve never found love when I’m feeling lonely and go out “looking” to meet someone special. It has never happened that way for me at all. For one thing, I completely suck at flirting. The last time I tried to flirt with a guy I offered him a rape whistle as a joke. *facepalms*

secret2

The song talks about how quiet things are until you fall in love and how suddenly there’s noise and I think the same can be said about my attitude. I’m happier and lighter about things when I’m in love. I’m trouble either way, but who I torment with said trouble varies. Just ask my friends, they questioned the hell out of me when I started falling in love with Josh. “Who are you and what have you done with Sady?” Apparently, I’m all nice and stuff now. *laughs* They just dont’ realize I’m serving up all my trouble to Josh and he’s keeping a tally. Not sure why or what he plans to do with said “bill,” but he’s got quite a list. *snickers*

secret1

So, yeah, two days in a row you’ve seen me in pink. I totally blame Josh for making me all soft…I’ll be back with some hardcore stuff soon…I swear! Meanwhile, get out there and shop to your heart’s content, cuz there’s sooooo much good stuff just waiting to be on your avatar right now!!
