“Day’s dawning, skins crawling: I am the Marcia F’n Brady of the Upper East Side”

You got me. Yes, I live in Las Vegas, so I’m not necessarily living in the upper east side of New York, but I do love to mix my quotes. Also, I’m the Marcia ‘fucking’ Brady of the I think it’s Clark County or Spring Valley part of Vegas didn’t have the same ring. Enough of my rant.

Day's dawning, skins crawling

Shine Messner, Glitter designer, started creating poses and, as some of you know, I love SL poses. When I dabbled in SL modeling, I looked for poses that were fluid for the runway. I think Shine’s poses have a graceful ballerina fluidity, so some may find them too slow for the runway, but sometimes we don’t need to snap to impress…okay, just a tad more rant.

Sometimes my co-workers boggle my mind. The interpersonal relationships in an office alone are enough to make a fake optimistic tap out.  If that’s your cruel intention…checkmate.

“Cause darling I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream”

It’s no secret in my inner circles that I’m late on the Taylor Swift bandwagon, but, in my defense, she’s made her album 1989’s popularity last forever. Unfortunately, Pose Fair 2016 cannot last forever, so it ends tonight, but at least it’s annual! I’m an animal lover so I immediately grabbed anything that had to do with our furry friends. Fashiowl‘s Cat Lover was at the top of my list. I miss having a cat, but since I lost one years ago, my heart hasn’t quite mended. The cats and all kinds of goodies from March’s Arcade simply defined Ms. Swift for me.

Cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydreamPose Fair 2016 ends at 11:59 PM tonight, so if you haven’t had a chance to stop by, better get going! Many creators designed exclusive poses just for the event, so plenty of newness going around. You got roughly two hours!

Surprise Me!

Recently, a friend of mine threw a surprise party for her husband but it didn’t have the wow factor she was hoping for. One, they have twins and her husband always brings both babies at the same time. So she had her phone filming discretely and hubby only walks in with one baby. You can hear the wtf in my friend’s voice when she asked where the other baby was. Hubby gets other baby two seconds later…then leaves again to collect the diaper bags.

Surprise Parties

Normally, he brings it all in. Think someone alerted him to the surprise? Methinks yes. The lesson: don’t let too many people in on the surprise! I had a surprise bridal party and it was my first surprise party. I was genuinely surprised, so it honestly made for the best time ever!

It’s gonna be alright…

…because “I shake it off, I shake it off.” This is kind of embarrassing, but I literally shake my head to clear it off thoughts. I never really noticed it, of course, until my hubby pointed it out. Apparently, I also frown in my sleep. Thanks for letting me know husband. Ah, romance (actually, I think it is totally romantic to notice my subconscious moments).😉

Shake it off.png

The whole point of my post is to point out my jacket, so disregard my ramblings! PurpleMoon Creations has one of the coolest jackets ever available at On9. The Iridescent jacket is materials ready, and I really wasn’t able to notice the real coolness until I logged on using the official SL Viewer. Now, mind you, it may be my graphics card because I am a frequent user of Phoenix and typically see everything I need to and want to.

See the green light in the picture above? It seems materials ready clothing adds the oomph to oh my.

I wore the lights (in my case green and purple) included in the package, but try going outside for a moveable light source to see the effects.

Bright Spot

March’s weather confuses me! First it’s windy, then it’s hot, then it’s cold and windy, and so on and so on. When I realized Pose Fair 2016 opened today, that totally brightened my day! If you don’t know, I love poses. And when I say love, I mean totally obsessed with poses. Poses give SL’ers life, ya know?

Bright Spot

Pose props are also awesome!  Luanes World “Don’t Wait” is a single pose prop that comes with an attachable Siamese cat. If you love animals, it’s a must have. Pose

“And Somehow That Was Everything”

Have you ever woken up and thought that today was the day you had to make a serious change? I do all the time, and I usually go through my day as I normally do and think about changing tomorrow. This time, I woke up and did a little soul declutter.

She Lost Him

I’ve been carrying around an awful lot of doom and gloom lately. Frankly, I don’t know what brought on this turn, but I can’t say grumpy moods aren’t abnormal for me.

But Found Herself

If you want to declutter your soul, you treat it as though you’re decluttering your house, bedroom, office, closet, or anywhere you tend to toss in non-essential items. I spent the day simply enjoying the day by sitting outside in the sun with my two pups.

And Somehow That Was Everything

I didn’t think about work, school, or the laundry I needed to do. Suffice it to say, I ended up doing my laundry, but I felt insanely refreshed by forgetting the past, ignoring the future, and living in the moment.

As for my delicous SL wear, you can find Glitter’s Ocean Queen at Swank‘s February event “Fifty Shades of Red.”

Chasing Weiland: “It’s what made you who you were.”

Scott Weiland’s death devastated me. I grew up listening to Stone Temple Pilots. They were my first concert. In many ways, their music shaped the way I hear new music today, and, so often, a song builds my blogs.

I heard “Plush” while driving to work today, and it brought back so many memories. There is the innocent interpretation of “Plush,” and that is merely how the lyrics compel me to sing along. Have you ever heard this song while observing Karaoke? My husband sang it at my work’s holiday bash and it was a favorite!

Where ya going with that mask I found STP

Was it the lyrics that made my co-workers, and myself, sing along? “Where

“Where ya going with that mask I found?”

so much depends on the weatherPerhaps, it is the connotation of trying to hide one’s true self, or one’s actions and motives, that makes others relate? This is me trying to figure myself out. It’s also an ode to my appreciation of Scott Weiland. He shall rest in peace, and I will call it a night and see what tomorrow brings.

I’m wearing loads of stuff from Designer Showcase‘s January Collection (January’s round ends on January 31). Designer Showcase will be on a winter hiatus and close shop for February. So if there is anything you want to grab, do it before 1-31! When Designer Showcase is back up in March, expect a brand new location and feel!

Las Vegas Winters (What? No Snow?)

I swear my outfits go through this every winter. I’m a southwestern girl by heart, so my move from Albuquerque to Las Vegas kept me in warm winter weather. The only snow I really see is in Second Life!
