Tropical Blessings

Just want to take a moment to thank everyone for their support over the last year and a half that my blog has been running. I have had wonderful opportunities and have met wonderful people who I will have a longstanding relationship with long after I stop blogging. I feel lucky and honored. Among these opportunities is the chance to blog for iNOVARE and to let you know that their event FashionTropics is beginning on July 7th. It is the summer and we should all be dressing with a little more tropical flair. Color is definitely in right now! TOOTLES

Come and Sit a While

Come and Sit a While

I had planned on doing some work tonight but instead was invited to a Greedy game… so instead of sit here and type out this long thought out post I am going to have a night off and play some games! How about you take a night off from whatever your doing and go shopping. It is an excellent way to spend your time. 🙂 TOOTLES

Summer Linden Shortage

Summer Linden Shortage

Summer is freaking hot! Trying to stay cool during this heat is just getting a little too much so I think it is getting to me mentally. I am seeing things… like… lindens that aren’t there! I tried to buy WAY too much yesterday at all of these events and I got myself into a tad bit of a pickle which was me being upset I ran out and wanted the lounger set and I kind of had a mini melt down before I talked myself into buying more lindens. I then started to brainstorm ways to make some extra bucks and I may have a few ideas that come out in the next couple of weeks. None of these will be to make something because I am designer challenged. Don’t know how they do it! TOOTLES

My Dirty Little Secret

1.6.14.1

I am sure we have all heard of the SL Secrets website that has been posting, name calling, and dragging people through the dirt. Every week people post things anonymously about things they dislike in SL. When did SL become so important to do this for? Lately Facebook has become just as bad as this ugly website. People calling others out over drama and things that don’t really matter. In the long term… what will all of this accomplish? I see good people either sick over all of it or being sucked into it themselves. I hear reasons and all it sounds like is that WANK WANK sound that use to be on the old Charlie Brown shows. If you don’t know what I am talking about then just imagine, k? So here are my dirty little secrets before it ends up on fb or a some random website with some hateful people…

I am not perfect! That is my number one and really the only secret, which I guess isn’t a secret at all. No one is perfect and no one has the right to call ANYONE out on their stuff. Just because you feel you have a reason for it still doesn’t give you a right. I guess this could go for many things going on right now. If you aren’t on any of these social media sites then be thankful that you don’t have to read the drama going on, but this can still apply to anything that you do. You can see the wrong being done… you can learn from it and not do it yourself. You don’t HAVE to call someone out and you don’t have to choose to be bitter. I am preaching to myself as well because I have been just as bad before. I sometimes want people to see the error of their ways and I stick my foot in my mouth all the time. I am not perfect!!! There is a chapter in Matthew in the Bible that really has been a haunting stepping stone for me. It basically says do not point out the stick in someones eye when you have a beam in your eye. Basically stop being a dang hypocrite! Rise above and learn something from all of this. Be real and be who you are and not someone who is fake. Fake being pretending to be someone your not… fake also means being sweet in front of someone and then talking about them in private badly… fake can even mean that fake smile you put on because you don’t want anyone to know the truth of who you are or what your really doing. People seem to be very sneaky in SL and instead of guarding yourself to the point that your alone, it is best to just be open and trust until you have a reason not to. I am sure many think I am stupid for feeling that way, but it really has been the only way to move on from the hurt. Not everyone is out to hurt you and its the misfortune to come into contact with those that do hurt and cause pain. As I have heard someone say to me before… Do not let someone else define who you are as a person and do not lower yourself to something less because of someone else.

My take from is to drop the drama and move on.. learn to smile and be happy! Those who say they drop the drama but continue to post or make comments on it haven’t really dropped it at all.. you add fuel to the fire. Learn to have some respect for others opinions and take others feelings into consideration. It doesn’t hurt to have a little compassion even if others haven’t had it for you before. This isn’t an eye for an eye type of situation. Also, if you wonder why people do not want you involved in their company or doings in sl, then you should probably look and see what you are spewing. If all people hear are hateful mean rude things then of course they won’t want to associate with you! Learn from this and move on! I felt like adding my opinion of all this stuff on Facebook would only add even more fuel so I just posted it in my blog like everything else. I may want to also note that I am on cold medication and I can’t be held liable if all my words don’t make much sense. Just saying… TOOTLES!

You Can Leave Your Hat and Hearts On

When one reaches a certain age (and we will not specify the threshold, obviously), dressing formal starts to be the norm. Business suits, well designed coats, a tie and, of course, a flat cap to keep the ideas warm are sometimes needed.

Don_blog_march17_001

Today I am trying to look fancy and making sure the arms are not really used as this coat forced me to keep my arms and hands close to the body; clearly a good option for standing around, taking pictures but it won’t really do as a groping times outfit… when the groping times come, then we will need to get rid of the extra fabric and go down to basics… and what is more basic that sharing one’s hearts with the other?

Don_blog_march17_002

The flat cap hat is from a new store, for me, Sharp [ZD] there are 3 colors available and I liked the grey the most. Needless to say that while I was shooting the pictures a song came to mind that would best describe the feelings between the sharp dressed Don at Mayfair from the barechested Demi-God portrayed at Elysion… and the song is…
Because I like to match all my outfits, I picked up just the grey version of the boxers, when buying them I saw that there were 6 packs with 3 colors each, so there is something for mostly everyone’s taste! Both the suit and the boxers are from this month run of the men’s department; an event that I do not like in general too much considering that the styles portrayed are quite far away from my own singular taste; I will admit that these pieces surprised me.

Let me know what you think and please, keep the hands inside the coat at all times!

Back again with another post to satisfy your cravings for male goodies. This time I’ve got something a tad bit hipster. This scarf and jacket are both from ::K::, and picked up at a reasonable price from [The Men’s Dept]. The jacket comes in a variety of colours along with the option to have the inside shirt or not and you can change the colour via the HUD. The jacket is also available for females if any are reading this. The quality of this jacket is top notch and the style will be turning heads. The scarf, which is also by ::K::, will add to any of your outfits. Since I’ve acquired the scarf, I haven’t been able to take it off. It matches every single one of my outfits and fits seamlessly with everything. It is always nice to add a little more to what your wearing and spice it up a bit. The scarf comes in 3 sizes, with male and female. I am currently wearing the Emerald one here.
