Do You Believe In Magic?

When I was in the 4th or 5th grade, around 8 or 9 yrs old, I had a huge crush on Shawn Cassidy. For one thing, he was one of The Hardy Boys. If you don’t know who that is, I want you to go to google right this minute and educate yourself, because they were all the rage, along with Nancy Drew and the Bobbsey Twins. Why am I bringing this up? Well, around that same time, Shawn Cassidy had taken on a music career. Naturally, I had to have that album. One of his most popular songs was his rendition of “Do You Believe in Magice” originally by The Lovin’ Spoonful. When I was creating this photo, that song kept going through my mind and I was reminded of this baby blue silver jacket I had with Shawn’s face on the back. His face plastered all over my walls. I adored him. Finally, I can answer the question…NO, I do not believe in magic. *laughs*

Blueberry

This isn’t really something I do very often, but for this post I’m going to talk about two stores. Well, mostly one, but I’m going to touch on another. I’m actually thinking that I might even do this more often. We’ll see. If you’re a regular reader, you know that the only norm to my blog is the lack of one. So, let’s just dive right in.

First store, I want to touch on is Stealthic. I love not needing a hair base when I wear Stealthic hair. If anything, I need to remove my hairbase. To top it off, he has recently taken on curls and they look absolutely amazing, especially in photographs. So, if you’ve never tried it (and if not, what rock have you been under) go grab some demos and check it out for yourself.

The main store that I want to talk about is, of course, Blueberry. Here’s the thing, I’m just going to get real with you here. I’ve heard people say, “Oh I don’t buy Blueberry anymore, because whenever she releases something new, everyone on the grid is wearing it.” Okay, but have you seen how many colors she has? Have you seen how you can mix and match her pieces from one outfit to another? The picture below is a prime example. This top came with a wrap around jacket and was released along side some adorable new leggings. However, I couldn’t resist mixing this top with the bikini bottoms from her previous release. You’ll see me mixing the bikini top with the bottoms next and there was another top with the bikini….a fringed top. That one is perfect with these bottoms or jeans….or even just panties. There’s no linden law that says you must wear Blueberry the way it was released. AND the more pieces you own? The more outfits you can make…and the thing is, they’re going to match, cuz its all from her color palette. Alright, I’ll hush now so you can go shopping….and take notice of how perfectly my Eurdora sandals are matching. *winks*

Make Me Vicious

Halestorm-Vicious

You make me vicious
Watch as I make the pain my mistress
You can call me Miss Malicious
I’ll dress you up in stiches
No I cannot resist this
If it don’t hurt I get suspicious
I like to take the knife and twist it
Babe, our love is sacreligious
I’m not scared to admit it
This violence is delicious
What doesn’t kill me
Makes me vicious
I’m not gonna break, I can take
All that you can give, this is survival
Of the sickest
I am not afraid, bring the pain
Watch out ’cause I’m vicious
And I’m not asking for forgiveness
Yeah I make you go ballistic
Your torture is our business
And I won’t leave a witness
I don’t care if you hate me
‘Cause you’re gonna have to face me
And there’s no use in crying
You know I would be lying if I said you could escape me
What doesn’t kill me
Makes me vicious
I’m not gonna break, I can take
All that you can give, this is survival
Of the sickest
I am not afraid, bring the pain
What doesn’t kill me makes me
Vicious
Vicious
Vicious
Vicious
What doesn’t kill me
Makes me vicious
I’m not gonna break, I can take
All that you can give, this is survival
Of the sickest
I am not afraid, bring the pain
What doesn’t kill me makes me vicious
What doesn’t kill me makes me vicious
What doesn’t kill me makes me vicious
What doesn’t kill me makes me vicious, oh!

You Don’t Know

Katelyn Tarver – You Don’t Know

I know you’ve got the best intentions
Just trying to find the right words to say
Promise I’ve already learned my lesson
But right now, I wanna be not okay
I’m so tired, sitting here waiting
If I hear one more “Just be patient”
It’s always gonna stay the same
So let me just give up
So let me just let go
If this isn’t good for me
Well, I don’t wanna know
Let me just stop trying
Let me just stop fighting
I don’t want your good advice
Or reasons why I’m alright
You don’t know what it’s like
You don’t know what it’s like
Can’t stop these feet from sinking
And it’s starting to show on me
You’re staring while I’m blinking
But just don’t tell me what you see
I’m so over all this bad luck
Hearing one more “Keep your head up”
Is it ever gonna change?
So let me just give up
So let me just let go
If this isn’t good for me
Well, I don’t wanna know
Let me just stop trying
Let me just stop fighting
I don’t want your good advice
Or reasons why I’m alright
You don’t know what it’s like
You don’t know what it’s like
Don’t look at me like that
Just like you understand
Don’t try to pull me back
Let me just give up
Let me just let go
If this isn’t good for me
Well, I don’t wanna know
Let me just stop trying
Let me just stop fighting
I don’t want your good advice
Or reasons why I’m alright
You don’t know what it’s like
You don’t know what it’s like
You don’t know, you don’t know, you don’t know
You don’t know what it’s like
You don’t know what it’s like
You don’t know, you don’t know
You don’t know what it’s like
You don’t know what it’s like

More Happiness

“You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous.” ~ Tony Hawk

Naturally, for this picture, I wanted a Tony Hawk quote, because he’s probably the most well known skate boarder in the U.S. Even my 72yr old mother knows of him. Yet, this quote really hits home with me, because my best friend, Kess Crystal, recently did a poll for bloggers, then released the results in her blog, Big Blogger Questions.  I know that every blogger on the grid did not participate in the poll, but I know a fair amount did. The results were a bit surprising, but I think the biggest surprise for me was the amount of bloggers that see blogging as competitive. It was 26%!! I have never seen blogging as competitive. I’m super happy to see talented photographer fashionistas take to blogging.
I started blogging as a distraction…as a form of therapy…a creative outlet. I never looked at other bloggers and thought, “I’m going to be better them.” I used to wonder how one blogger got chosen for a brand vs a blogger that I thought did better photographs, but as I stepped into blogger management, I realized that the designers have a certain vision for how they want their brand to be represented and each has their own criteria. Some will not take on bloggers that feature nudity or curse words. Some brands won’t consider a micro blogger (flickr only). I’ve never been angry with a friend for getting selected for a brand I wanted to blog for and I didn’t. I do my absolute best to surround myself with positive and supportive people. I don’t blog for the hopes of being popular or famous in a virtual world. I do it, because I’m addicted to it. What started off as a for of creative expression and therapy, has evolved to a creative adventure and full on addiction. I’m even prone to overdosing…taking on more than I can handle and edging dangerously close to blogger burnout, but alas, I’ve been able to reign myself in and make it all work.

Dark Desire

As he passed her in the club, her gripped her wrist, pulling her in for a quick whisper, “Wait for me in the restroom.”
His voice was so deep and he smelled amazing. There was a fierceness in his eyes that was intimidating, but something about him drove her to follow his instructions. She did as she was told and waited, craving the mystery man and the darkness he would bring.

Bad Girls

Alright, yes, its another post with a song and lyrics, but these really do kinda go together…at least in my head. This is one of the few times I wish I had video making skills, cuz I’d love to try to do something bigger with this song. Either way, I love the song…hope you do, too. If not, watch the video with the sound off, cuz there’s some kickass car tricks going on.

M.I.A. -Bad Girls

Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the radio
Get back, get down
Pull me closer if you think you can hang
Hands up, hands tied
Don’t go screaming if I blow you with a bang
Suki Zuki
I’m coming in the Cherokee
Gasoline
There’s steam on the window screen
Take it, take it
World’s bouncing like a trampoline
When I get to where I’m going, gonna have you trembling
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the radio
Yeah back it, back it
Yeah pull up to the bumper game
Yeah with a signal
Cover me, cause I’m changing lanes
Had a handle on it
My life, I broke it
When I get to where I’m going, gonna have you saying it
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the radio
Get back, get down
Pull me closer if you think you can hang
Hands up, hands tied
Don’t go screaming if I blow you with a bang
Going nought to bitch, I’ll see four million
Accelerating fast I can do this in a second
Lookin’ in the rear view, swaggin’ goin’ swell
Leavin’ boys behind ’cause it’s legal just to kill
Shift gear, automatic, damned if I do
Who’s gonna stop me when I’m coming through?
What we got left is just me and you
But if I go to bed, baby, can I take you?
Get back, get down
Pull me closer if you think you can hang
Hands up, hands tied
Don’t go screaming if I blow you with a bang
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young…
Chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the radio
Chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’

What makes you so special?

I’m not sure why, but I can picture dancing slowly around this chair to this song. Dragging my finger tips over the shoulders of some very handsome man, leaning down to whisper in his ear as I whisper the words of this song. Well, you get the idea….*blushes*

MILCK – Devil, Devil

Devil, Devil
Clever Devil, Devil
How quickly they do sell their souls
For the feast and the promise of gold
But devil that won’t be me
Devil, Devil (mmm)
Bones of metal metal (mmm)
You torture saints with a single glance
Make them think they ever stood a chance
Do not try me Devil, Devil
Cannot buy me Devil, Devil
You won’t make a fool of me, oh no
What makes you so special, special
To think I would ever settle
For that devious dance between you and me Devil, Devil
Rebel, rebel
Call me a rebel, rebel
I walk the plank, not a tear in my eye
I won’t go down, your blushing bride
Under the water, I’ll be sharpening my knife
Do not try me Devil, Devil
Cannot buy me Devil, devil
You won’t make a fool of me, oh no
What makes you so special, special
To think I would ever settle
For that devious dance between you and me Devil, Devil
You take the shape of
Everything that I’m drawn to
You take the shape of
Everything that I’m drawn to
But your eyes
Are dead and red, red as rust
Do not try me Devil, Devil
Cannot buy me Devil, Devil
You won’t make a fool of me, oh no
What makes you so special, special
To think I would ever settle
For that devious dance between me and The Devil, Devil
(hmm) Devil, Devil

Namaste

I always kind of wondered what Namaste meant. I know it has become popular among those that do yoga, but upon a teensy bit of research…I found out it means quite a bit more. I could regurgitate what I read in my own words, but instead, I’m going to link you the article. I found it really interesting and if you’re a curious kitty like me, I’m thinking you will too. So, here’s The Meaning of Namaste for those that want to know more.
