DownDownDown

Ever have one of those days where nothing you did came out right? Or at least that’s what others would have you believe? It’s been one of those days for me. I am so thankful I have my photos and my blog to pour my heart into because I am feeling DownDownDown.

Coincidentally, the shop where this pose/prop is from is also called DownDownDown. (See what I did there?)

It’s Pose Appreciation Week over at [SL] Blogger Support and I certainly appreciate this one!I stumbled across Tuki Loon’s shop at Osaka while I was out exploring different shopping sims looking for some undiscovered treasure. Well, I found it! I don’t think any prop or pose could have captured my feelings as well as this one. Tuki’s shop has some cool fantasy accessories and a lot of unusual items, so when you visit make sure you have plenty of time to peruse!

As for me, I am going to go soak away the day’s negativity with a bubble bath and get ready to do it all again tomorrow.

Better Late than Never: Inspire Me – As Time Goes By

I truly have been a slacker this week when it comes to using the very prompts that I’ve written for [SL] Blogger Support’s Inspire Me initiative. I was pretty much going to let the week slide by without using one, until Keliah Angelis of Picture This! decided to put out a set of time telling poses that just happened to compliment some other photos I took earlier in the week, and I’ve used them to create a little story!

Here I am waiting around for Jake. It’s a good thing I have my Miel BFF Ticker to keep track of how late he is. *grins*

They say patience is a virtue, unfortunately it’s  a virtue that I do not have. The sun is going go set soon and he’s still not here, good thing I dressed for the weather in my J.H. Couture sweater and cords.

Of course he shows up looking all adorably handsome in his new Gizza outfit, so how can I be mad. Apparently he was late because he was getting a head start on Christmas shopping for me! <333

Hiding in the Darkness We Are About to Become – Unhinged.

“There is no more secret place than the dark recesses of our minds.” ~ Me

Hides-In-Darkness_003

Unhinged has begun. What is Unhinged? In short, Unhinged is a Gacha Fair event to save Eku Zhong’s head. Literally.

For more information on Unhinged and it’s reason for being, read the heartfelt letter from one of her dear friends. It’s another beautiful instance where SL’s community comes together to take care of one of their own.

Here are a few items that you can find!

Hides-In-Darkness_Square

  • Sakide’s Gacha contains 4 sets of this incredibly cute Skully dress (above). Each gacha will come with two dresses; Black/Teal, Gray/Red, Blue/Olive or Pink/Purple.

Hides-In-Darkness_007

  • Misty Harley has a cool cane with poses (as seen above) as well as dagger poses for sale with proceeds going to the event.

Hides-in-darkness-PMD-Eyelashes-

  • Pin Me Down’s Gacha will contain some seriously cool skully eyelashes. You heard me, eyelashes. They are amazing and you will need to have them all. The skin I’m wearing beneath the PMD lashes and eye tattoos is also available at Unhinged from Your Skin & Your Shape and is just beautiful. I’m sure I’ll be wearing it in future posts where you can see it more clearly.

 

Hides-In-Darkness_004

  • And let’s not forget these completely gorgeous Sugar Skull boots from Lassitude & Ennui. The Gacha machine has them in 7 different colors! You know you want ‘em!

Honestly there are so many cool things, I’m a bit overwhelmed right now so once I get MY head on straight, I will bring you more goodies! *flails*

Here’s your carriage to the event!

Stuck on My Body Like a Tattoo

Anyone who knows me can tell you that I’m not really a tattoo kind of girl. I don’t dislike them, as a matter of fact I think they look awesome on a lot of people. I’ve just never really liked them for me. I was browsing on Flickr and came across this gorgeous photo of a woman’s exposed back with a very delicate orchid tattoo across it. I finally had time this week to hunt it down, and I haven’t taken it off since.

Stuck On My Body Like A Tattoo

The tattoo is from Glue Ink, and like all of their tattoos it comes in both faded and fresh.  The detailed artistic beauty of this particular tattoo carries over to each and every tattoo they create. I actually had a hard time deciding if I should stick with this one, or one of the others. And I just might go back and grab a few more. Glue Ink may end up turning this vanilla undomestic goddess into something just a little more dangerous. *winks*

What I’m Ummmm Wearing?

Earrings: Maxi Gossamer | Barcelona Earrings

But My Heart Lives Where You Are…

I’ve been around Second Life for some time now, I have had different avatars and lived different SLives. Each and every one of them has been inspiring in its own right. However, I always find myself being drawn back to a time when I was involved in the SL music scene and inspired by the ridiculous amount of talent that dwells within it. One of my very favorite musical artists is PM Bookmite (musician Phillip Mitchell in real life). The man can write a song, wrap it around his little finger, and twist and bend it until it takes on a life of its own.

One of my favorite songs is off of an album called Therapy. The name of the song is simply… Love. Grab your tissues ladies, it’s a tearjerker.

Love by Phillip Mitchell

I know you are hurting
I read it in your touch
I feel close but far away
It’s never quite enough
You read to me last night
And every word was true
Someone else’s old love letters
Open the door to you

Love, love’s waiting here for you
What else can I do to show you?
Love, love shouldn’t shut you out
Or leave you with your doubts
When I can hold you

Remember all this open space
Is just a great façade
Highways run long distance
But my heart lives where you are

And if you change your mind love
And words come spilling out
These tired arms will wrap around
The promise I’m without

I’m A Fangirl of Rainy Days

So, I may have cheated just a little bit today. I combined 2 Inspire Me blog post ideas into one. But I think it works for me, and it also happens to be true. I really do love rainy days.

In the summertime, when I was a little girl, as soon as the clouds started rolling in it was time to prepare. My friends and I dashed into our houses. No, we weren’t running for cover before the clouds burst, we were running inside to hurry and change into our bathing suits BEFORE the rain started. We didn’t want to miss one single drop! So there we would stand, the 3 musketeers (me and my 2 BFFs) waiting for those precious drops of rain from heaven to pour down on us. It was like having the worlds biggest sprinkler to run through!

Inspire Me - I'm a Fan of Rainy Days!

Well, as you can see, things haven’t changed much have they? The whole theme kind of fell into place when the lovely BellaStar Fhang of .evolve. released her crazy awesome .evolve.wellies. the other day. The pair I chose are aptly named “Rainy.” Aren’t they so cute? She made them in a bunch of fun colors so you really need to get over there and check ‘em out!

P.S. I am so proud of my rain… I MADE RAIN! I followed Valena’s rain tutorial and I think it turned out ok! What do you think?

The Right One

I’ve just started a fun new dealy over at [SL] Blogger Support called Inspire Me. Basically each week I’ll put out a list of blog prompts, one for each day, with the hopes of encouraging people to blog daily, or at least to get them over a hump if they’re stuck.

Monday’s prompt for this week is “Unforgettable Quotes.”  Usually I’m all over the place with inspirational and encouraging quotes, but the photos I took have inspired me to lean more towards the comical side of the fence this time. My friend Krisy helped me pick out a suitable quote and I think you will be pleased with the choice. *giggles*
