Feeling Posh & Foxy

For the past few days, I’ve been so sick. I’ve spent a small percentage of my waking hours trying to be productive, but after a few hours I am just absolutely drained. My body insists on shutting down. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve nodded off in front of my screen. Although, I am a massive whiny little baby when I’m sick and one unfortunate friend was receiving an almost play by play of my woes last night, as it was the worst one so far.
However, as I laid in bed, sleeping, waking, sleeping, watching Netflix, and feeling as though death was surely preferable to my plight, I couldn’t help but think of all the things I could be doing with my time rather than lying there completely miserable. Not to mention all the amazing ideas I had while in my medicinal haze, none of which I remember now. *sigh*

One thing is for sure, I was super excited to get these pictures of the new Posh sweater and skirt coming atcha from ChicModa at Oh My Gacha! I was feeling Posh and Foxy, so my little companion and I  set out to TaKe Heart, an absolutely gorgeous sim for a few photos…and here are the results. As always there are some killer events going on all across the grid, so may the poshness and the foxy feelings follow you as you shop, which naturally they will. *winks* Until next time, I’ll see you around the grid!♥

Feline Frisky

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
Robert A. Heinlein

feline frisky ground

This quote makes me giggle, because I have three cats in real life and one dog. However, the cats are all boys and the dog is female. Which leaves the human man in the house a bit outnumbered. LOL. There’s an abundance of attitude and demands going on around my house, not to mention the Chaos and Mayhem…those that know me will catch that little joke. Two of my cats are 6 1/2 month old brothers appropriately named, Chaos and Mayhem. These two burst to life at the two regular bedtimes in my house…midnight and 6 am.

They are indeed the epitome of asshole cats. They will stare me straight in the face as they begin knocking things off a shelf or table, knowing their little feline paws are faster than my human legs and my shouting, “STOP!” is an exercise in futility. Just like cats choosing to do what they want. when they want…I will readily admit I am much the same way. Most of my female friends are, as well. So, for any fellas out there that might happen to be reading my blog…sit back and relax, we got this. *purrs*

So, some of the goodies at The Epiphany inspired this post…from the Concrete Jungle gacha that unKindness has created to the delightfully wicked Energy set that Blueberry has taunted us with and there’s just so much more…you’ll be sure to see plenty more of my Epiphany goodies in the upcoming posts. Afterall, one does not assemble an entire city and not use it for lots of amazing photos, right?

My Memory

Your memory is a monster; you forget – it doesn’t. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you – and summons them to your recall with a will of its own. You think you have a memory; but it has you! John Irving
memory
I can’t help but wonder if an Elephant’s memory plays such tricks. I’ve long envied the memory that elephants are known for possessing. However, after doing a little reading I found out that while they have a great memory, they have poor eyesight. What a trade!
memory 2

These pictures are something I’ve thought of doing for a while and just didn’t get around to it, because….well, I forgot, okay? Sue me. There have been so many shinies and so many amazing events. My inventory is a complete mess and so is my head. So, prepare yourself for a great many posts mixing new, recent, and older items as I attempt to sort this all out. In the meantime, I will do my best to put them together in ways that will please the eye and inspire your own beautiful ensembles.

Angels Among Us

A funny thing happened on the way to the office…okay, I don’t have an office anymore. However, I was hanging out with my gorgeous best friend, Tracy Redangel, while taking these photos and trying to multitask. To be honest, multitasking is code for chasing squirrels and shinies…like checking Facebook. That led me to a YouTube video (Coldplay-Hymn For The Weekend) that my dear friend Posh had posted and it was a little crazy when I realized the lyrics and what I was wearing.

Here I am, dressed up like an angel in red…or Redangel…see what I did there? Then I hear these lyrics:
“Oh, angels sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up”

red angel2

That’s when it hit me like a ton of cinder blocks for about the millionth time. I have the most amazing friends. I’ve been in SL for over 9 years now and I don’t think I have ever had friends quite like the ones I’ve got now. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a few friends from my gloriously dramatic nooby days, and my how we’ve all grown and changed (most of us anyway). Mostly for the better, I think. I know for me, I’m wiser about the people I choose to surround myself with and I’m occasionally wrong about some people. One thing that’s proven true over and over again is the old adage about people coming into your life for a season, a reason, or a lifetime. People I thought were real friends once upon a time have led me to some people I know in my heart are real friends. Lifetime friends. Angels that light up my world when I’m down. I really hope you all have some friends like that, too. ❤

Weed or Flower

“A weed is but an unloved flower.”
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

This simple line from Ella Wheeler Wilcox’s poem, “The Weed,” is so poignant. Without the love and kindness of those around us, would we not all feel like weeds? I cannot fathom where I’d be if not for the mingling of my spirit with the spirits of others throughout my life. Each one leaving its imprint on my soul. Each one playing its own role in my journey. Occasionally we are lucky enough to find a spirit that shines so strongly, that even after one short week of knowing them…we know our life will never be the same.

Keep your hearts and minds open as you go through life to insure that you allow such loving energy into your life. Allow yourself these blessings, for we are each deserving, and there is no need for us to be weeds…let love in and allow yourself to bloom. ♥

Pretty Things Just Taste Better

“Pretty things just taste better,” she purred as she pulled only the prettiest grapes off the bunch, popping one in her glittering red mouth before putting the rest on her plate. She was quite accustomed to pretty things…pretty men, pretty cars, pretty jewelry, pretty clothes, a pretty reflection, and most importantly pretty delusions. She no longer saw her true self in the mirror, she saw the younger version of herself. There in the mirror she saw only the inner beauty she radiated, untouched by the hands of time and unclear without her glasses. She was quite grateful for weak eyes for this very reason.

I suppose that while beauty is in the eye of the beholder, society has set a few norms for most of us. Gourmet foods often look quite aesthetic, but do they always taste better? It really comes down to personal preference, doesn’t it? One of the many reasons I love Second Life is that it allows me the freedom to set my own standard for what’s pretty and surround myself with lots of pretty pixel treats, including friends. So, as I rejoin the blogging world for the first time in over four years, I’ve gathered some of my closest friends and asked them to wear some of their favorite pretty things.
