It Melted

12.15.14.3

AHHH…. Someone quick HELP!!! My snowman is melting and not really sure why. It’s still fridged outside and I am ready for this to be over… what about yall? anyway… I am writing today because it is my A-day. Sometimes when I tell people this they look at me funny and then I have to explain this is my adoption day. The day my parents took me home for the first time. I have to say, I get the most weird looks even with my funny name for it. No, I am not sensitive about being adopted… my parents have always taught me that it means I am extra special. They found me after many many years of looking. Yes, I am open and excited about this day because it is special to me. No telling where I would be or who I would have become without my parents influence on me. I might not know the meaning of a melted snowman might mean. Loads of fun to be had building it that might not have come if I hadn’t of been adopted. I was lucky… and many are not. I am currently going to school for social work to help change this fact and I am sure most have heard me complain about how busy school is and it will only get worse as I enter the majority of my social work classes. I am actually humbled and nervous about my future career. I do hope it will make a difference with the fact that I have been where they are. Only time will tell! I just want to show them that even though they may stand alone like I am alone in this photo, they are never really alone. There is my “let you into my life” moment for the month. Just about enough for now. I can’t overload yall! TOOTLES

Logic vs. Imagination

12.7.14.1

 

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” – Albert Einstein

I have blogged most of my blogging life with logic. Thinking what will a designer want to see and what will readers want to see. In fact, if I look even deeper into my RL… everything is with logic. I think about every single detail of my life before it gets to that point because I love to be prepared. I always think what is the point if you aren’t prepared. Imagination kind of hasn’t been that big a part of my life.. until recently. The amount of imagination that it takes to put into most blog posts plus into normal photos is just draining. I took 3 weeks off to be in RL with my family for vacation and it was a very eye opening experience. The imagination kind of stayed on vacation I think because I feel like I have hit a brick wall with things. More will come soon… when I figure things out with logic… but I want to go everywhere… not just a straight line to what I have had planned. Strength will overcome 🙂 Here is to hoping I get back on track soon! TOOTLES

Smile Anyway

12.8.14.1

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile,
but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
– Thich Nhat Hanh

This is just a quick reminder that even though you may not always feel joyful and like you want to smile… smile anyway! Someone else may see that smile and it may improve upon their day. TOOTLES and many smiles!

Black and White

12.8.14.1

Things are not always as black and white as we would like them to be. I have long loved blogging… before I started to blog last year I was already following several of my favorite bloggers and watching and learning. I have since learned that as much as we love to think that blogging is one way or another, it is however you want it to be! I love events. It seems I enjoy blogging events more than I do specific designers. I get lucky when my designers are in these said events, but really I just love to see the new designs coming out plus new designers who I have not yet had the pleasure of working with. I think back to my very first event that I began blogging for. This was my first “sponsor” that I ever had and Xen’s Hats was one of the designers. I think back to that small room and now to see this designer at fashion weeks and in expos… it just warms my heart and I am proud to say remember when with a few of them. Well plenty of shopping to get to so please hurry! December will be gone before you know it. TOOTLES

Words break like Ice

12.6.14.1

I wanted to take a moment… and vent a tad. I mean that is what this blog is about. Most probably don’t read what I write and that is perfectly fine. Maybe the right person will read it and it will change something that might happen to them. Either way I will say my peace because I feel this is just a growing issue….

We all know that SL can be full of rotten and hateful people who are miserable in their RL and want to come to SL to make others seem just as low as they are while raising their spirits a tad. I am not talking about your “selfish” moments. I am talking about people who aim at making others feel low. I have witnessed this a few times recently, more than I would like to see. Between the horrible griefing going on at the Belleza sim, to hateful words being spread on FB and in world making fun of others due to how they choose to play this game called Second Life. I just wanted to remind everyone that this is suppose to be the holiday season where you make others feel happy and try to lift spirits. Not everyone is going through the same thing that you are and not everyone will understand you; however, this does not give you the right to treat others with such disrespect. I will write more about this subject later, but I just wanted to throw it out there… to remind others to be kind and generous especially during this time. I am being vague because I will choose to share my story and reasons for comments at a time when I can be more clear on them.

Please think about your actions and words… you never know who you could hurt by your joking or games. They can break a person’s self esteem like an icicle shattering when falling off a tree. TOOTLES

I have been a very good girl this year… relatively good… ok maybe not at all, but regardless I look FABULOUS this holiday season thanks to my visit to the Winter Trend fair. A girl couldn’t ask for this kind of selection and receive anything as amazing as this. Two full sims to explore and buy from some of your favorite designers, which is just what I did. I hope you go check out the fair before it ends on the 19th. You can’t miss this! TOOTLES

Take me on a Safari

12.1.14.1

I am getting a tad tired of seeing all the winter photos. They are flooding my flickr, so instead I opt for something a little warmer and sizzling. With the help of a couple of events going on this month, you too can have this fabulous look. There are a ton of items to show so please stay tuned 🙂 TOOTLES

P.S. I wanted to wear my Belleza body and skin in support of Belleza over this DMCA crap. It is sad when creative people are held back by people who would like nothing more than to steal joy and happiness who those who get to create and enjoy the creations. If you haven’t grabbed you Belleza by now, then it may be taken away in the next few days and you will not have the chance unless all of this mess gets put away and they bring the Venus body back (which I hope happens soon!). We must as consumers and lovers of SL stop the madness!

Good to be Back

11.24.14.3

I am back!!! I had a nice lovely break from SL for a trip home to see my family and my in laws and I am actually glad it is over. Anyone who spends an extended period visiting family is always glad to see it come to an end and get back to the way things usually are. Visiting everyone is just exhausting! I am coming back to two new events starting on the 5th that I have to show you so I wanted to do a quick snap of this dress by D-style which will be available at Winter Trends 2014. I also came back just in time to hit up the last black friday sales and to find out that TRUTH will be having an in world store sale of 50% off till December 15th! So many good things going on in SL lately and I am glad to be coming back at just the right time. During my away time I have had a lot of time to think about my future in SL and I will be happy to share that with you in a few weeks when things settle down a little. So for my quick welcome home and then back to business… it is great to be back 🙂 TOOTLES

Girly Night

11.1.14.1

Girly weekends at home are a myth. Who actually gets to veg out like this? Certainly not myself or the cupcake would be replaced with my two year old and the TV would have some kind of cartoon movie. Probably Jungle Book because that is his favorite. I am not complaining because I love the move, but after the 4th time it plays in a day it can get a little old. I tried to change it out with maybe Nemo or even put on his favorite TV show Bubble Guppies, but sadly it was a no go. I could only virtually set up a little corner for just me and my sweet tooth. Stopping for a quick reminder to visit the Kawaii vs. Creepy Gacha Event before it is over! Singssss “Girls just wanna have funnnnn” as she goes back to her regularly scheduled program…  TOOTLES

Trust

10.28.14.1

When you feel depressed, confused or hurt, don’t worry. Stand in front of a mirror, you will find the best one to solve your problem. TRUST YOURSELF!” – unknown author

We all go through those moments when we doubt our abilities and doubt if we are doing the right thing. I began a week of positive thinking on Tuesday (I hate beginning things on Mondays), and that is when the doubt hit me. I finally do not want to have a negative thought and all I was thinking was horrible things like “I am not good enough” or “Why did this or that happen.. is it something I did?” This is a huge struggle for me and those closer to me understand this. I am constantly going back and forth about what I should do and over analyzing everything and every step that I take. It is exhausting! lol The letting go this week has been extremely hard but I want to start trusting myself and my abilities to do what I enjoy and what I love. The take from is just to trust myself… trust that I have my best interest at heart and to expect the unexpected and embrace it. That’s all I have for the day 🙂 TOOTLES!
