Today Is Where Your Book Begins

On Monday morning I did a live stream in SL for the first time in quite a while. I had forgotten how much I missed just chatting with people who are kind enough to come and hear me ramble about various things. It’s different than what I do on my Twitch channel. There, I play games and chat about what I’m doing in that moment. Somehow, live streaming on YouTube is different, and I can talk about any number of things. If you missed it, then I’m sorry, because I deleted the video immediately afterwards. Mostly because I did a playlist of current pop songs in the background and I didn’t need 37 copyright notices, but also because I wanted to chat about some personal things just to get them out there.

Someone in my chat mentioned that SL breaks are a good thing, because it means you can come back later and remember why you love this place. You can start again. It reminds me of a quote I really enjoy – “At any given moment, you have the power to say ‘This is not how my story will end.'”

No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten.

Which Way Is The Wind Blowing

Hello bunnies, I hope you all are doing well! Do you ever feel like you seriously don’t know which way the wind is blowing? It just kind of feels like it’s blowing from everywhere and you aren’t quite sure where to turn your head. I’ve felt like that a little bit lately. But it’s all good. It just means I have a lot of directions that I could take. And one of those directions is taking me shopping!

Yeah, I’d Go Again

Hey bunnies! I think about traveling a lot. I’m not in a place in my life right now where traveling too far away or for more than a day or two is really an option, but I certainly do think about it. When I was younger, I used to think about just leaving. Get in the car, drive until I found some little town, work in a diner, buy a tiny house. Considering my insane shopping habit and my weekly whine about having to wash my clothes at the laundromat because our apartment didn’t have a washer… well, I’m pretty sure had I run away, I would have come back the first time I couldn’t find a decent nail salon. (This was the early 2000s. My nails were always done.)

Being more in touch with my boho side now, I think I would be better suited for that tiny town life. But then again, maybe not. I don’t think there would be a very good internet connection out there.

Go shop!

We Have A Plan For Life, But Sometimes Life Has A Different Plan For Us

Hey bunnies! So I’ll admit, I didn’t quite get the whole planner craze when it started happening. It seemed more like a big arts and crafts project than an actual thing to help. Because I’d had a planner before, back in the early 2000s. And I just wrote things down like appointments and parties and dates. But the planners that people have now… I didn’t get it. Some of them are so intricate, with quotes, stickers, bookmarks, all kinds of things! But I’ll admit to having horrible time management skills, and after talking to some planner people, I bought one at the beginning of the year. And I quite like it! The funniest part to me was that as I was writing in it, my mind immediately said “You know what this needs? Stickers.” So I guess I’m one of those people now, too! Although, it’s on a very tiny scale and I still don’t think I’m planner-ing correctly. Maybe one day!

It’s All Smiles and Business These Days

Hey bunnies! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! Collabor88 opened up last night and oh gosh. Is it a good one! I know people always say “Sex sells” in Second Life, and generally lingerie and super skimpy things are the norm, but sometimes, you really just need something cozy and warm and comfortable to wear, and Collabor88 is full of that this month! ♥

Say You’ll Do What I Don’t

Hey bunnies! If you haven’t been to Rewind yet, you need to GO. Quick quick!

Style - Say You'll Do What I Don't

Back in the 90s, I was absolutely into slip dresses with baby tees underneath! So I was super thrilled with the Iha dress from Vinyl for Rewind! The only thing that would have made this dress more “Me in high school” would be if the shirt underneath had a small smiley face or daisy patch!

Decoy‘s Jelly Heels are such a perfect match for this dress, too! And of course, no 90s outfit is complete without a choker, like the Mood Stone Velvet and Flower Lace chokers from Izzie’s!

Rewind closes on the 28th, so be sure you head out there this weekend!

Buffalo Gals, Won’t You Come Out Tonight?

I’m watching “It’s A Wonderful Life” right now and the song “Buffalo Gals” will be in my head for days! But I had to show you guys some newness from this month’s FaMESHed!

Style - Buffalo Gals, Won't You Come Out Tonight?

Pink Outfitters brings us the Tori Bodycon dresses this month. It’s a simple dress, which you all know I adore, with a nice little belt. You could, of course, wear it without the belt, or if you have another one that fits over the dress, that would work, too! The thing I love about classic dresses is that you can dress them up or down in so many ways!

And oh my GOD, look at the Fufu Bag from Maxi Gossamer! I seriously squealed when I saw these purses because I have a total love of sparkly, pretty, party purses! I’m carrying the silver shimmer one, but the combo pack comes with black feather as well. Also, you have the option to carry it in your hand or on your shoulder.

As I was walking down the street, down the street, down the street…

D Is For Delicious

Last year for the Shoe Fair, the creators were all assigned to one of the official bloggers. I was lucky enough to get Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora, and I was very happy! Donna Flora is one of those stores where when you buy something, you instantly feel just a little more fashionable.

Style - D is for Delicious

I’ve been in love with the Dana shoes since last year. They’re not overly fancy, but they have just that little bit of “kick” [no pun intended!] with the jeweled buckle that brightens up an outfit. I also love the thick heel with the little embellishment. Totally classy.

Speaking of stores that start with the letter D, Decoy is bounding onto the mesh scene! I picked up the Valerie dress at the March Mesh Madness event. I love simple little sundresses and this fits the bill to an absolute tee.

Oh, and while you’re at MMM12, stop by Maxi Gossamer. This new-to-me store has some great mesh jewelry, like the Babette necklace I’m wearing. Only this necklace I got for free by joining the free in-world group, so if you want to sample the work before deciding to buy, you can do that. But I guarantee after you see it, you’ll want to buy more more more!
