Sometimes Goodbye Is Forever

I debated using such a personal picture on my blog. I even debated taking the picture itself. But I've found that at the very least it's therapeutic, something a lot of my SL pictures end up being. I'm not very good with words, so I'll let the picture do the talking. It's been a rough few weeks and I often didn't know what to do with myself. I had questioned everything that made me who I am today and fought back tears daily. Time is really a great healer. As are the friends who are there for me no matter what. It's during these times you learn your closest friends are.

I've learned a lot and experienced more heartbreak than I thought possible. But moving on has honestly never felt so good. I suppose the hurt will come and go and get a little less each day. I'll be doing some RL therapeutic healing of my own soon. The lyrics speak for themselves.

Well, I'll tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna drive to the big ol' muddy river
I'm gonna park my car in the middle of the mile-long bridge
And then I'm not gonna cry, well, maybe just a little
Then I'm gonna slip off the ring that you put on my finger
Give it a big ol' fling and watch it sink
Down, down, down
And there it's gonna lie...

The way you lie
Well it's what you do, it's who you are

A Little Work, A Little Play

Holy moly, it's been a whole 10 days without blogging. I took a bit of an unplanned break. I needed some space from SL after some not so nice things happened and decided that I would take a break from everything. It felt really good but I did miss my blog and annoying my friends. I'm still having a hard time adjusting so we'll see how much I'll be blogging in the coming weeks, I can't say for sure.

It's the last weekend of The Arcade and as you can see I have a lot of items out from the event. I fell in love with the Workspace Collection from Tres Blah. As you can see, it's all about fashion design and the work that comes with it. I even added some of the cute little Zodiac figurines from MishMish. Since I'm what people call "on the cusp" I included the Capricorn and Aquarius figures. I find I have qualities of both signs since my birthday is on a cusp date.

What's a little work without some play time as well? Consensual opened Friday, a new adult furniture themed event with discounts anywhere from 30-50% off the original price. I love adult furniture (coughs and hides her face) so this event is like heaven for me. Cheeky Pea has this amazing chair out for the event. Not only is the adult version full of fun animations but the corset detailing is gorgeous and adds a different flair to the chair. Who says it has to be all about work when you have a chair like this? Grins.

Venus Unveiled

Oops, looks like it's been a while since I blogged. Let me just say things have been quite chaotic and I've been focusing on other things. Anyways, I'm sure you've seen the latest in the mesh body craze on Flickr and the feeds and that is the Venus body from Belleza. It's not available to the general product but I have a sneaky peek for you! It's fitted mesh so it responds to your shape sliders and I managed to get the curves I've always wanted and couldn't achieve with other mesh parts.

The HUD is super easy to use. You get two versions of the body, one that will be compatible with SLink hands and feet and another with Belleza's own feet and hands along with the JD feet. If you want a really detailed post check out my friend Dani's here. I've been just staring at myself for days and running around in lingerie. Can't even get bothered to get dressed properly. Oops.

Fate Of My Heart

This round of all things voodoo at The Fantasy Collective comes to an end tomorrow so if you haven't gone yet, now would be a good time. I dressed up in these great high waist shorts from Haste, a BOOM mask, a tattoo from Little Pricks and Tableau Vivant hair that comes with a detachable voodoo top hat. Then I began working on my love spell. Who is it for? If I told you, then I'd have to kill you. Kidding, I promise.

Don't Forget To Kiss Me

The Arcade is in full swing now and one of my absolute favorite machines is from Ispachi. The Florian bedroom is amazing and the perfect room for couples. There are 19 pieces to collect, with a rare texture change bed and an adorable puppy with breathing animation, also rare. I bugged a long time friend to pose with me and he was more than happy to help. Also from The Arcade is this Tableau Vivant Writer Hair that come with various "writer accessories." I'm wearing the Bronte bow in white.

Apple Of Discord

The birthday round of Collabor88 and it's theme "Odyssey" (all things Greek mythology) ends soon and I was  inspired by the *BOOM* Eris & The Apple pose and prop set. In Greek mythology, the goddess of discord Eris, infuriated over not being invited to the wedding of Thetis and Peleus, threw a golden apple into the wedding banquet. She told the crowd that the apple belonged to whoever was "the fairest." Athena, Hera and Aphrodite all reached for the apple but Zeus decided he would have a mortal judge who was "the fairest" and he chose Paris, a prince of Troy. Each goddess promised Paris something in return for him proclaiming them the fairest.  Athena promised him wealth, Hera promised him power and Aphrodite promised him the most beautiful woman in the world. Paris chose Aphrodite and Aphrodite told him that Helen, wife of Menelaus of Sparta at the time, would be his wife. Paris stole Helen away with him to Troy during his visit and sparked the Trojan War.

Apple Of Discord 1

There are so many beautiful items at Collabor88 this round, I wouldn't know where to start. As you can see, I outfitted myself as the three goddesses involved with the apple of discord in order to tell the story. Greek mythology has long been a passion of mine, ever since I discovered an illustrated children's book of Greek myths when I was about 8. Ever since then I have devoured any book I come across on the subject. But that is enough of my rambling, onto the credits!

Beware Black Magic

It's that time again! The Arcade is back and celebrating it's second birthday anniversary. The grid's greatest designers have brought us all some awesome creations once again. The Arcade now has it's very own sim with attached Gacha Galley for all your gacha purchasing needs. ISON made some spooky things as part of "The Altar," some modern day black magic items with no rares! They went great with all the things currently out at The Fantasy Collective which include this amazing dress from Peqe called "Tear of Lys" in a variety of colors.

Don't forget that there is a new round of Uber that just opened as well. Exile has this great hair there called "Day The World Went Away" to go with the "Apocalypse" theme. So many events, so little time.
