Close Your Eyes and Make A Wish

3.10.15.2

I wish I may, I wish I might, let me tell you what I wish tonight… I wish for a cluttered home to come home to. I wish for a hot cup of coffee on a rainy night matched with a good book. I wish for happiness in the moments when I want to cry, and I wish that others would approach with a tender touch instead of quick to judge or comment. I wish that objects rez when you need them to, and I wish that all my favorite stores go on sale all at the same time. Since I will need to wait for these wishes to come true, I decided to shop at events instead. The Skin Fair, Collabor88, and Designer Showcase were all on my hit list and coupled with some other event items, I was able to make my little corner of wishes. I hope you enjoy these items as much as I have.

Merry Christmas

12.22.14.1

The past week has been a start of a new journey for myself. I rarely write too much about my RL, but I felt it was time to explain a little of what has been going on with me. I found out that my RL spouse will be deploying this coming year and I am in the process of moving homes in the process. I am on and off a lot lately because of this and I am going to be working on cutting back on blogging. I will be starting a job as well on top of all of this in the new place I will be living, so even less time for Second Life. I think during this time I will consider a “re-branding”. Maybe open up a different wordpress and all to represent this new part of my life. These are just thoughts that I have been having which I can’t be 100 percent sure aren’t just emotional outburst over my life being picked up and dropped like something Dorothy experienced in Wizard of Oz… this time there is no witch that I landed on… I checked! I should be use to this with the military life and it certainly is not the first deployment but with each one comes challenges. This will be the first once since we have had a son. The thoughts of how to tell him that his dad won’t be here next Christmas just make me cringe. For all the people who thought we were “pulling out” over there… you are dead wrong and have no idea what the government does when your not looking. I am sure there are people who actually believe the many politicians who fill your head with things like oh this is what we are really doing when behind the scenes things look drastically different. I am not here to get in a debate with you over these things… you can believe what you like and I will live the truth of the matter. I am here to explain that until things calm down you can expect to hear less of me during the week. Blogging daily has been a routine for me that I can no longer keep up with, but I am not stopping completely. Blogging is a part of who I am in SL and will always be that way, but the way I blog will just be different. By the time I return to blogging… Christmas will be over… So Merry Christmas to all and Happy Holidays! I will fill everyone in as things progress on my end…. stay safe and TOOTLES

The Time Has Come

12.14.14.1

I think bloggers get sucked into the Dos and Don’ts of blogging too often. I am definitely guilty of this because I over think every thing I type. Do I want to say what I am really feeling? How might it be taken other than the way I intend it? I often just think about how my words might be taken… never do I put thought into other things like types of photos or even when I go post to certain sites to spread my blog around. I then wonder if anyone even reads what I type or do they just scroll down to the credits. I keep my comments mostly brief because of this, but this week I saw a long list of blogs about the Dos and Don’ts of blogging. Different blogs covering different topics but all of it had to do with what your not suppose to do as a blogger. I then personally started to think about each of these don’ts and just how important they really were. In my opinion there were about 2 of them that mattered to me… 1. Do not beg for sponsors or freebies… 2. Do not expect for anything to ever last in the blogging world… it is always changing and always moving towards other directions. I felt like the rest were just little nit picking things. Things that didn’t really matter but to be “proper” you needed to do this because people who have their noses stuck in the air will actually care. It is for this reason that after I fulfill my obligations that I have already signed up for… I will be stepping back from blogging for stores (not fairs). I love my “sponsors” and the ones who I have been with for so long feel more like family than a job of any sort. I want to blog what I feel and when I feel like it. I may do the occasional event here and there, but those will be when I choose to blog and not because someone tells me I have to. I have been considering stepping back for a little while now. I have hit a hard block when it comes to my creativity. I have seen so many wonderful bloggers just keep going and going and then I wonder how many of them look back at their posts and see the same topic or the same photos being done by themselves and not even realizing it. I want to find myself again… find my creative side… maybe focus more on the photography aspect of my blog. Lately I have enjoyed building “sets” or creating something different. I see a ton of beautiful photos scattered all across my Flickr feed where people put extra thought and time into their photos… because they want to and they can. I would love to be able to get to that point. I need to focus and practice and maybe find the spark again to continue. I will probably update everyone in the near future about this again… because I am not exactly sure what I have and haven’t signed up for in the next coming months… but it will be a slow changing process and one that I am kind of excited about. It is time to re-evaluate myself and what blogging means to me! 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

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!

9.29.14.1

I seem to be taking a lot of suggestive pictures lately… I can’t say that I really mind considering that I do consider myself a sexual person, but this is actually for a good reason, I promise! Most have heard of the book 50 Shades of Grey. I haven’t been able to read the book… but I have wanted to. I know the movie is coming out in February, and I will probably be more likely to see the movie before I have a chance to read anything other than a school book. UBER is doing the 50 shades theme for October. I love these kinds of events and themes, so I needed to jump at the chance to show you a couple of items released. Also, I am rather happy, but this is my first post in the Belleza Venus Mesh body. I would do a full post on the body, but sadly, there are about a million of them and not really any need to add my two cents about it all. Anyway…. I have a lot of things I could say with this photo considering what was going on as I was taking it… but I will pass 🙂 *coughs* That will have to wait, because I may say too much since it is rather late for me. Just go enjoy UBER… it begins tonight! TOOTLES
