Out and about
Pausing a moment to wait for Dena to catch up as I had a thought about how good it was not to spend a fortune on clothes ~ top, vest and leggings were only 15L ~ wow pretty good bargain for an outfit and all you had to do was find the heart box that contains the outfit at Scandalize ~ there are hearts scattered all over the store and if you look on one wall it will show you what each one has in it ~ there are 20 different heart boxes to find with each of them having 2 items inside ♥ this hunt will last till February 14th, which still give you plenty of time but don’t procrastinate ~ Dena and I found this accidentally while waiting on our lucky letters to come up hehehe ~ ok finally hear Dena coming down the steps so gotta go but will be back later hugzzz ~ remember to take a moment to breathe♥♥

wondering…

wondering
Ever just sit and wonder about things? Like how can someone draw a blank ~ how does a thermos know to keep things hot or cold ~ If love is blind, how can we believe in love at first sight? You ever wonder about that or is it things like are aliens really spying on us ~ or why is bread square and lunchmeat like bologna is round or wouldn’t it be nice if whenever we messed up our life we could simply press ‘Ctrl Alt Delete’ and start all over?  Plus you know what is weird is the fact long ago most of us had to travel by horse as cars were only for the rich now its everyone travels by car but only the rich own horses…yes this is deeply pondering thoughts to think about and maybe am just a tad weird to come up with  some of this but was watching a Netflix special w/Jerry Seinfeld and he got me thinking about some of this ~ probably not as funny as he just gave me thoughts as to SL we now have so many events happening every day what do we do with all those clothes and items unless you are one to change on the hour isn’t strange most of us have over 365 items of clothing yet we still go shopping for the latest ♥  And those that own prim babies and children do you just shove them back into your inventory when you are tired or do they go to an orphanage when you are done with them…or everyone truly wants you to read their blogs, look at their Flickr and like them but do you read them or just click like to be kind ~ lastly profiles I do wonder how many how there truly take time to look at someone’s profile and their picks ~ people work hard at coming up with some interesting stuff yet how many even say btw read your profile…just was wondering about stuff♥♥hugzz & remember to take time to be good to yourself…

beauty school dropout…

BeautySchool
If anyone remembers the original movie “Grease” the song by Frankie Avalon “Beauty School Dropout comes into my head while I was sitting here ~ plus it does bring back huge memories of when I back in my younger days did attend Beauty school ~ you really have to be dedicated to this profession to stand on your feet, listen to women bitch about whatever as many hairstylists are like bartenders & priests as they hear everything and you just gotta listen…it is so different these days with blowdryers, just cuts with no shampoos and rarely do you use curlers ~ my Dad sadly disappointed said he paid for all that schooling so I could learn to cut and color my own hair ~ he kind of was right…look below for the credits ~ fun shot and have lotz more coming for you as Dena and I have been brainstorming with ideas as well as I am entering a photo challenge that I will be showing you the results in a couple of days ~ thanks to each of you for always taking the time to read my blog posts ~ hugzz and take time to breathe ♥♥

not a princess…

Princess
Shakes my hair and repeats I am not a princess…Would be nice to own a Corvette and wear designer clothes but life did not turn out that way…It is all good as I did have the pleasure of driving one when I was much younger and my boyfriend at the time owned one ~ reality he turned out to be an alcoholic and needed someone to drive him around ~ didn’t last long as his sober moments were short and his drunken ones were longer…I did have the long blonde hair with blue eyes that I am pretty positive it was another reason he chose me as you can only imagine the image of pulling up beside me at a stop light seeing me in the driver’s seat and the hot boyfriend next to me ~ laughs ♥  In SL you can have the hot car, designer clothes and not break the bank…no car insurance to pay on that sports car, which in RL will truly cost you a fortune…designer clothes in SL as we all know can be pricey but looking good is not ~ this outfit from the top, jeans and shoes from **ABSEN** cost a whopping total of 10L ~ and yes it is mesh and made for various bodies ~ a truly unbelievable find that Dena Teardrop my bestie turned me onto from Marketplace...I will agree with a lot of people in SL, clothes are expensive but if you spend a little time researching on Marketplace you can find some goodies like the outfit am wearing…Also, a little kindness does bring some nice rewards like receiving a very nice gift from Vasek Petroff, owner of *Petroff* just because I made a comment on his Flickr page that his jewelry is gorgeous and each piece I am in love with ♥ You really do have to admire his craftsmanship in creating some gorgeous pieces…It is always nice to let a designer know that you like their items…just like liking someone’s pics on Flickr or their blog posts…so that’s it for me ~ take care of yourselves and remember to BREATHE…

Sax Girl…

SaxPlayer
Wish I could play the sax like Kenny G or John Coltrane except I cannot play any type of instrument at all ~ my grandma taught me to read notes and play piano and the only song that I could semi play by reading music is “Can’t Help Falling in Love” sung by Elvis ~ that was my fave song growing up as was Elvis and I would practice over and over and over till my father would yell “choose another song” LOL today am lucky if I could play chopsticks hehehe ~ forget singing as I could not sing on tune at all…guess that just was not my niche…if you are wondering where I got this pose all this month the pose fair has come …If you join the Pose Group there are a lot of pose gifts this one is included from Artis ~ hubby is like me and loves finding new poses for us to try out, take pics and just have fun with them ♥  will find out what he thinks of this one as he didn’t see me unbox all the gifts last night ~  bloggers and photographers you really need to check out The Pose Fair ~ lot of great single poses, couples, and props along with all those free gifts too♥ Here is YOUR RIDE ~ till next time am wishing you a healthy start to the new year ~ hugzz

last day…

Blessed
Can you believe this is the last day of the year and tomorrow starts 2019…this year had its ups and downs but like the sign says I do feel blessed ♥ Some of my RL friends might scoff at Second Life yet for me it has opened up so many friendships all over the world that if not for Second Life I would have never met some amazing people…my bestie Dena who lives across the pond, who am grateful for her friendship, who makes me laugh, who listens to my various rants and who I can share anything with and have…I would have never met Brutus or even my ex-partner, Sten who I am still friends with ~ no matter what people complain or whine about Second Life is an amazing social platform and cannot wait to see what 2019 brings ♥  From the fabulous clothes, great hair designers things have come a long way ~ you gotta admit to yourself that Second Life has that certain appeal that brings most of us back over and over ~ what can I say after 10 years that I still smile when I log in wondering what notecards will I be reading, what IM’s have been left for me and also knowing I have tons of choices on what to wear…Truly looking forward to 2019 and wishing each of you to take a moment and think of all the good things that took place in the past year ~ hugzz

relaxing…

Relaxing
Have you been to Backdrop City lately ~ Mia the owner of Backdrop has created a really nice Winter Wonderland with so many different photo ops and I am taking a much-needed rest from my hectic life ~ the upcoming holiday creates a lot of stress on families and especially parents trying to make sure their children truly get what they ask for and sadly have seen it so many times parents sacrificing bill payments, maxing out credits cards just so their child won’t be without…my former job was at a very well known Mortgage/Bank corporation that people would start calling in to skip their December house payments because their budgets didn’t include that payment ~ most times I just had to seriously bite my tongue to keep saying “seriously this is your home, where you sleep, where your children live”…most were financially unstable to be able to take advantage of this because of their excessive spending yet they would scream, call me names that I won’t repeat and try to intimidate me into feeling like “Scrooge”…Christmas comes the same time year after year and either you save a few dollars in savings account for it or budget your money wisely and that is all I am gonna say on that ~ mine is processing the fact about after so many different doctor appointments am needing to have a 2 hours procedure/surgery on my nose and I am a tad stressed about it ~ all I heard being told to me is “pain will be intense yet you will have good drugs after surgery” plus I have this quirk about someone touching my nose and that is a whole new story LOL ~ thanks for always taking time out to read and comment♥ I did hit the arcade as you can see in the credits where the hat/hair came from ~ hugzz and cya soon ♥♥
