Sipping Coffee Stunned

Sipping Coffee Stunned

I woke up this morning to the horrible images that were plastered all over the news about the terror attacks in France. I sat there sipping my coffee stunned and really not surprised. I imagined this would happen in the United States, not in France. Our governments act like nothing is going on. Just that morning, Obama sat here saying we have things under control. Does this look under control to you? We have NO idea who is in the United States ready to act the same as we just saw in Paris. This is a scary world we are living in and I for one am counting my blessings daily. TOOTLES

Back to the Grind

Back to the Grind

My little mini vacation was so worth the time. I am glad to be back though and ready to get back to my regular routine of things. I will slowly be backing away from blogging so much. I would like to concentrate a lot on photography and just enjoying SL again. I think most can relate that we get busy and we forget the real reason why we enjoy Second Life so much. I guess I have forgotten why I started blogging in the first place. The last couple of days has really made me think on this and I will continue to figure out what is the best thing for me here. I hope you all can understand! TOOTLES

My Hair Fair Highlights

I went to the hair fair this year looking for some crazy outrageous hairs and I found myself getting hairs that I would wear on an every day basis. I loved a lot of them, but I wanted to show some of my favorites here. I have done a few posts already on some of my favorite hairs; however, I felt like doing a few in one post might be a better show of the creations this time around. I hope you go and enjoy the Hair Fair, and also remember to pick up your bandana for the Wigs for Kids day. We will all be wearing our bandanas in support of those who have lost their hair. ❤ TOOTLES

What tickles your feet?

What tickles your feet... ermm fancy?

First, I need to inform everyone that Designer Showcase has now moved! You may want to mark that down in your landmarks so that you have the current location. Second, The Arcade is open and is FABULOUS! Good luck getting in but if you want to hit up yard sales you have that option as well. I think I might end up doing both!

On another note, I have planned on starting to describe what I would call encounter disasters. Maybe not all of them are disasters, but they are interesting and I get a kick out of some of the random weird things that are said to me during first hello’s and first dates. I thought about writing about the first date the other night where the guy obsessed over his hair for 2 hours. I think I saw every hair on the grid just standing there watching him change. My eyes crossed! I think it might be a little more appropriate to tell you about a first encounter. I wasn’t really expecting much to happen this night; however, I decided to head out to Frank’s Place Jazz Club. I went to the free club because honestly there are single (or claims of being single) people there who actually will talk or ask you to dance. At the paid portion of Frank’s Elite it ends up being a ton of couples and all smooches which sorry…. I am not that sappy! Anyhow, I was sitting there talking to a some friends who are just great. We were all smiles and laughing and then just when the white undies turn into the white flag of surrender, the message of the night comes along.

I received a rather polite response from a man who was actually wearing a mesh suit and seemed to try to take care of himself as best as possible. I say this because it seems to be rare here as well. No, I am not being snobby, it is just nice to appreciate someone who tries to look nice. The first few comments were a polite hello and a message that he was just looking through my Flickr and liked what he saw but that he had a question for me. He asked… randomly… if I had a shoe fetish. This was by far the most interesting first question that I have received in a long time. As I explained that I was a blogger and sometimes I like to include just a shoe photo… that wasn’t a good enough answer apparently! He then began to explain that my photos were disconcertingly sexy… oh hell, I will just post this and leave this here for you to read….

XXX: the way you take those pics is disconcertingly sexy

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): slight foot fetish yourself? lol

XXX: it’s a fair question… the truth is I really don’t know if I do or not. I don’t think I have a typical foot fetish but I do find female feet and legs attractive. I wish I didn’t though

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): hm you wish you didn’t? As in you wish that they weren’t female or that you had an attraction to another body part?

XXX: lol I wish I had no reaction to those body parts. Let me give you an example of what I mean…

XXX: your 1st life picture is awesome. It’s very sexy but at the same time it’s not explicitly sexual There is a subtlety to it, which is something missing in a lot of SL photography. I can look at it, make these observations and appreciate it without having any undue reaction. On the other hand some of the pictures in your flickr I feel like I have a disproportionate reaction to. After all they are just pictures of pixels and in many of them you’re wearing more than in your 1st life pic

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): that is a very interesting observation. The reason may be that I did not actually take the photo in my first life pic. It was done by a friend. Im not sure what the difference is in the flickr photos as opposed to that one really.

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): and here I thought you might just offer to buy me shoes to relieve some of the pressure there lol

XXX: lol

XXX: do you mind if I ask you a purely hypothetical question about that scenario?

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): lol go for it

XXX: hypothetically if I had bought you shoes which you were wearing and showing them off for me. If you could tell that you were arousing me, would that be arousing for you?

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): hm this is a rather interesting hypothetical

Now, I will stop the conversation here because the rest was just kind of… blah! This was basically the root and ending of the conversation which shouldn’t come as a surprise. I have two take away’s here. First, Do not try to act like your some kind of upstanding guy who just doesn’t do sexual things in SL. I have met… TWO men who actually aren’t interested in things like this. I felt like he was somewhat trying to be shy but come on.. you start off asking a women about a shoe fetish? The second thing that I took away… was that I take more photos of my legs and shoes that I realized. OOPS! Live and learn right?

Well for my first relationship/dating/encounters post I think i went rather well. I might tell you about the guy wanting the sex train later but I needed to start off a little soft. 😛 TOOTLES!

Relaxed Fit

Relaxed Fit

It has been too long since I have just sat back and relaxed in SL or RL. I felt a trip to the beach was in order and since there are so many great items coming out for this I figured I would show you a few while I enjoyed the views. This first picture above is with me wearing a pair of shoes called Trinidad made by Essenz. Below I am wearing a pair of flats from Poute called Roma. Both of these shoes can be found at Tres Chic for the May round. With so many flat shoes coming out I am having to swap shoes more than I do clothes lately! ❤ Hope you enjoy your time in SL! TOOTLES

Two Wheel Flying

12.1.14.4

Have you ever been on a bike going really fast down a hill and just throw your arms out and feel like your flying? I did it once and crashed hard! The beauty about SL is there are rarely crashes that do not involve your viewer. This represented a form of freedom for me. To let go of the things around and just see what happens. I am going to attempt this in the next couple of months and just see what direction I need to go in… If I go down hill though I can always get back on the bike and try again and this is the part that excites me. Another exciting thing is TWO huge events begin today. The Jewelry and Accessory Expo 2014 begins at 12pm slt with a show by Zibska, and The Winter Trend Fair 2014 opens up at 1pm slt for everyone. Both events are bringing some fabulous top designers and loads of goodies for you to take advantage of. Prepare for a weekend of shopping! You may need to borrow my bike to get around to it all. TOOTLES!
