Power Up

RYRLuxeParisCabbitSweets

Business.
We’re taking care of it.
Handling it.
Minding our own.
Some of us are in other people’s.
But, I haven’t the time.
I’m too busy getting down to mine.

Business.
Day in and day out we are caught up in it.
Our lives demand it.
It interrupts our spare time and we comply.
For, it’s understood that taking care of it
before pleasure is paramount.

Business.
Dressing the part is key.
Monkey suit.
Power suit.
Conservative.
CEO.
LUXE Paris.

Smooch

RYRAvadaHuntClose

I couldn’t breathe.

His big beautiful brown lips completely covered my own.
He quickly took me into his arms while near the church
drinking fountain.
I’ll never forget it and I still get butterflies in my stomach.
It was…
Messy.
Tender.
Flailing.
Long lasting.
It was all those things — my first real kiss.
I kissed him again and again later on.
Practice makes what?
PERFECT.
And I wanted to be a great kisser.
I think my diligence paid off since I honestly think
kissing is something I do well.

Believe it or not, a lot of who we are surfaces unconsciously in our avatars.
That is probably why no matter what avatar I create or what skin
I’m in, my mouth must be wide and full.
Juicy lips.
Plump and inviting.
Without them and a gorgeous shade of lipstick (preferably RED),
I  feel my styling is incomplete.

When I opened Avada‘s Rock Your Rack 10L Hunt item,
it was love at first sight.
Thalia is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8…EIGHT shades of Red and Pink.
OMG!
They are absolutely perfect for lips that practice.
Not too glossy…
(It’s embarrassing to attempt a kiss with color on your teeth)
and
Not too matte…
(Don’t come up in here with dry lips…DENIED!)

Runaway NOT Run Away

LicBootySetStairs

Hidden.

That’s how I’ve spent a good portion of my life.
Running under the radar.
Escaping the watchful eyes.
Invisible.

There are times when I will come out from the darkness,
dust myself off and show the world (real & virtual)
what I can do.
Satisfied, I will go back undercover.
But, what does that accomplish?
Not a damn thing.
So, guess what?
(Perk your ears up.  I’m about to make a bold statement here.)
………………………….
I’M. COMING. AT. YA!

No more hiding.
That means my skills, passions, wild ideas and crazy style —
It’s all for you.
Reminds me of the nanny in the 1976 movie The Omen..
“Look at me, Damien.  It’s all for you!”
‘Course she jumped off a high ledge right after that, hanging herself.
BUT, she did it with a smile.
So, look at me, Readers.  It’s all for you!
That includes LIC‘s latest greatest ensemble titled simply…Booty L.I.C.

LicBootySetHide

Lyndy in Chains is the queen of sexy and Booty is the perfect example!
Compatible with nearly every mesh body out there,
this racy two-piece (top & shorts) is all that and all for you.
Her all inclusive HUD has options to customize the
Material, Belts, Buckles, Buttons, Thread and a Color Wheel to
customize on top of your customizations.
Whew!
There is also the option to turn Bright on or off.

No more hiding ya’ll.
Running away is no longer an option I’m giving myself.
I’m grabbing High FURshion with all my claws —
digging in deep.
This is a runaway…..

If

ZibskaAziza1

A very sad word,
If is.
It’s sometimes filled with regret…
If only I’d been a better daughter.
If only she would smile at me.
If he only knew…
A very sad word, indeed.

I’ve been rather melancholy as of late and If has cropped up
many times during my journeys down memory lane.
I dismiss the negative aspects of them immediately
since there is no use in regretting the past.
Saying that I have learned from them
is all well and good, but I sometimes feel we use that excuse
as an aid to dulling the pain.
The trick is finding your own way of reversing those Ifs, turning them
completely on their sides —
working them.
using them.
getting in touch with them.

ZibskaAziza2

I’ve discovered that one way for me to work my Ifs is
via Second Life Photography.
I’m not a great photographer, but when you are expressing
yourself, you really don’t have to be, do you?

I love texture which is why my images seem to have
more edge to them.
I also love color which I’ve said many times before.
Color & Texture.
There is only one solution…
ZIBSKA!
Zibska gives me so many choices, so I am never ever bored.
For this posting I chose current sales event and
Mainstore items.

Aziza is a powerful makeup collection available now at ULTRA.
Until October 10th, you have the opportunity to transform
your mundane into gorgeous insane with Aziza’s three part system.
Her Eyemakeup palette (15 colors), Lipstick (21 colors)
and Blush (9 colors) all come with Appliers for
Lelutka, LAQ, Catwa and Omega, as well as Tattoo layers.
She satisfies my hunger for color, Aziza does.
Now, for that texture….

Becky.
You probably know or knew someone called that.
But chances are she never showcased such movement as Zibska’s
hat of the same name.
With orbits that give the illusion of hat pieces breaking away,
Becky is not just a hat, but a work of art!
I am one hat-lover in heaven and if you’d like to join me,
the Mainstore is only a click away.

Color and Texture.
I’m ready to go!
Now, If only I could wear two heads to showcase all of this on….

Paper, ROCK, Scissors

RYRCabbitAd

Roshambo.
Another name for the decision making free hand game
mostly known as Paper, Rock, Scissors or some other
form of the three words.
You know the rules:
Paper covers Rock.
Rock blunts Scissors.
Scissors cut Paper.
Now, indulge me for a moment…

What if Paper represented Cancer and what if
Rock stood in the place of a cancer Patient?
Scissors can then be how the Rock views them —
Pharmaceutical companies, Chemo, Supportive family, etc.
Keep indulging me…

Paper (cancer) suddenly covers Rock (Patient).
Mind you, paper only covers.
It does not smother, contain or completely envelop it.
That means light can shine through giving the Rock
the ability to blunt the Scissors (Chemo, Fam, etc)
so they aren’t too difficult to handle; using them to be Paper-Free.
Indulging should continue, please…

Besides the Scissors, the Rock has a helper — a sidekick, if you will.
And it’s named after it’s Heroine/Hero….
ROCK.
YOUR.
RACK.

Round 1…FIGHT!

LicSierraHoldMyPurse

The FGC.
I’m a member.
Well, more like a spectator than a full-on participant.
You see, FGC is the acronym for  Fighting Game Community.
I love it!
I crave weekends where I have snacks, beer and a
great tournament to watch on Twitch.
My favorite games I give all my attention to are Tekken 7,
Street Fighter V and King of Fighters IV.
The first two are quite popular and are always included
in gaming championships.

Back in the day, there wasn’t an official FCG.
It was all about the arcade.
Pacman, Tron, Sinistar…
My, my. I miss that excitement of standing up in front of a box
and giving it all you got.
You had your game face on and was ready to take on any and all challengers!
Sort of like how I feel wearing LIC‘s Sierra.

LicSierraPleaseGod

Sierra is a downright sexy fun two piece outfit which consists of a skinny
belted tube top and ruffled mini skirt.
Her HUD gives you pages upon pages of options to change the texture
to Stitched, Lace, Leather, Latex, Fabric, Fur and the Metal of
the Buckles & Rivets.
Stretch options are also available to make your choice pattern
as large or small as you desire as well as LIC’s Color Wheel to further
enhance your customization.
Sierra is compatible with most Mesh Bodies and aren’t we lucky
that she is?  Now, there is no excuse to not get your game on
and look sexy doing it.
Anyone for Round 2……

I Woke Up Laughing

MiHTreeHugger

You should get yourself a husband!

That’s the last line a female (unknown) said to me while I was napping.
I woke up laughing.
Seriously.
No joke.
I literally woke up laughing my butt off.
A husband?
I need one of those like I need another pair of ears.
No.
What I need is more color in my life.
Aye.
More color is definitely in order.

MiHBootWatcher

There’s mutiny afoot!
More like Mutiny in Heaven, who turns the DAZZLE Event upside down
with their Net Beach Dresses, Palette Stringkini and Palette M Thigh Boots.

Covering Dazzle’s Mondrian theme for August from
top to bottom (literally), Mutiny in Heaven brings us variety.
The Net Beach Dresses come in a plethora of patterns —
10 at my last count.
Skulls, Flowers, Tiny net, Thick net, Hearts and more…
Each comes with two versions included.
One using alpha masking and the other alpha blending
Now you can comfortably wear them with
nothing underneath (I dare ya)
or with the included Palette Stringkini.
This skinny two piece swimwear emulates Piet Mondrian’s
famous design to a tee.
But, I bet he never thought art could look this sexy.
Covering where you want it to and not in the places you don’t,
this Palette is meant to be admired.
It comes with a mix and match HUD allowing you to
choose between 3 Mondrian textures for the top
and 3 for the bottom.

Lastly, Mutiny brings us the Pallet M Thigh Boots.
They scream Mondrian with primary colors lain
perfectly between each crease and fold.
See the bold black lines outlining the left ankle
and the right knee?
Superb!

All three Mutiny designs are compatible with most mesh bodies,
so there’s no excuse for you not to whiz on by
and let Heaven dazzle you……
