Personal

ZibskaBelovedWLRPOct

Joe Fox (Tom Hanks): It wasn’t…personal.

Kathleen Kelly(Meg Ryan): What is that supposed to mean? I am so sick of that. All that means is that it wasn’t personal to *you*. But, it was personal to me. It’s *personal* to a lot of people. And what’s so wrong with being personal, anyway?

Joe: Uh, nothing.

Kathleen: Whatever else anything is, it ought to begin by being personal.

~ You’ve Got Mail ~

Of all the movies I’ve watched in my lifetime with characters
spitting their knowledge on life, I’d have to say that
Kathleen Kelly’s Personal quote has been the most memorable for me.
Meg nailed it. I haven’t watched You’ve Got Mail in years,
yet what she says in this scene has stuck with me.
I can hear her voice now…”But, it was personal to me.”
What are we?
A bunch of machines?
Is The Tinman a distant relative, thus we have no heart?
Do we really interact with others on a daily basis using
“It’s not personal” as a license to do to them as we please?

I’m gonna spank ya right now, so bend over.
Ready?
Repeat after me…
It’s Personal.
One more time.
It’s Personal.
Thank you.

So, what brought all of this on?
Xfinity — the Home of Comcast.
Lord, these folks!
I wish unto the Heavens my former ISP had not done an Elvis (left the building).
I had no other choice but Comcast.
Over the years, I’d heard horror stories about their lousy service
figuring it couldn’t be that bad.
It can.
It IS!
The past few days have been a nightmare with their iffy service —
not knowing when it will go down and for how long.
Thursday topped the outage list with 17 hours without internet.
Perhaps today will be a new record as I’m literally creating this post via WordPad.
Contacting them brings on a whole new set of frustrations, too.
First, you have to get through their phony female machine
with it’s fake typing sound effect as it looks up your information.
That process takes even longer if you owe them money.
How dare they speak to you about owing anything when they can’t
provide what you signed up for.
The ingrates!
When I finally reach a “real person”, she began with
the standard, “I’m so sorry for the inconvenience.”
No you’re not!
That’s something you spit out in hopes that it will calm the complaintive.
It fuels my fire.
She was reading.
Everything she spoke to me was prompted.
How do I know?
No matter what I said to her, she kept repeating the same thing and would at times respond with something unrelated to my question.
“We will be refunding everyone for the time outage.”
I didn’t ask that. Nowhere did you hear me mention money.
She wasn’t personal.
Her superiors do not see us as individuals and find it easier to deal via note cards.
I’m so sick of that.
I’m flesh and blood here.
Approach me as the person that I am.

As I sit here without net access, I’m thankful that I was able to capture images of Zibska‘s contribution to this October’s We ♥ Role-play when it was up.
It would have been an utter shame to miss informing you about Bellona and Fini.

ZibskaBelovedWLRPOCT2

Bellona is a gorgeous Eyemakeup palette of 15
bold colors as only Zibska can do.
Glistening and attracting eyes to your own,
Bellona comes complete with appliers for
Letlutka, LAQ, Omega and Catwa.
Tattoo layers are also included for Classic Avatars.
Also available, but not pictured, is Bellona Lipstick
and Bellona Brows, as well.

Rounding out my personable look is Fini.
Boasting 21 color choices, Fini is one hell of a lipstick palette.
Zibska has made sure that no one is left out by offering
Letlutka, LAQ, Omega and Catwa appliers, as well as,
Tattoo Layers all in one pack.
These lippies will be my goto sticks!
I love the way they shape my lips inviting a more
up close and personal experience.
As with Bellona, Fini also comes in an Eyemakeup Palette.
With 15 colors, you can’t go wrong.
And btw, Zibska is having a 50L Marketplace Cosmetic Sale
until October 22nd. So hurry!

Zib Scaggs, Zibska CEO and Creator is personable.
She’s approachable.
She listens.
And she puts out some of the best damn-ass makeup and
imaginative accessories on the grid.
Over the years, I have run to her products time and time again and will continue until the day she decides to stop.
Thanks, Zibb.
Thanks for being personal.

You get my High FURshion stamp of approval!

Pay Attention

RYRDEBoutiqueAlaskametroPipe

It’s hard.
Not multi-tasking and giving one single item,
task or idea your undivided attention.
Tis the way of the world.
There’s no time for idle time and being in the moment is all in the past.
Well….
STOP.
For the next few moments, pay attention and concentrate on this….
Rock Your Rack, now in it’s 6th year raising funds to support
the National Breast Cancer Foundation,
has raised over $1500 US Dollars so far.
Beginning a mere 9 days ago, they have topped their records from last year.
Designers who have made this possible are:

DE.Boutique
and
Alaskametro.

Palette for Lips and Eyes.
Appliers are sold separately for Lelutka, Catwa & Omega

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!)

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….

Livie Lively

ZibksaLivieLively

I Want To Live!
A 1958 movie my Pops introduced me to as a girl.
It’s a true story based on Barbara Graham, a habitual criminal who
fights to survive after convicted of murder and sentenced to execution.
Me, being at an impressionable age,
I Want To Live had a profound effect on me.
I wanted to live!
I wanted to live for Ms. Graham and for all others out there who sought
to prove that what appears before you, isn’t necessarily what it seems.
With Zibska, you don’t have such confusion.
What you see is what you get…
Bold.
Bountiful.
Beauty.

When I first saw Livie, the vibrant Lipsticks and prismatic Eyeshadows
Zibska offers at our current Mesh Body Addicts,
the corners of my lips turned upward.
My eyes began to broaden.
I took in air.
Livie. Is. Brilliant. 

ZibksaLivieOntheball

She makes my full lips utter meaning without saying a word.
My eyes no longer need to speak since Livie is a polyglot.
And as an ensemble, the face you put forward will be unstoppable!

Barbara Graham’s last words were this…
“Good people are always so sure they’re right.”
Well, I’m not always good, but I’m hella sure about Livie…..

Why So Serious?

AlaskaWhimsy2
I’m guilty.
I’ve committed the crime of taking things way too seriously.
I know this about me, yet it’s a hard habit to break.
Are you floating in the same turbulent Sea?
Well, grab my hand.
Come on.
That’s right….
Let’s get our tails to Alaskametro for some Whimsy.

Whimsy is Alaska’s latest makeup palette and wow is it fun!
At your disposal are 5 stunning Eyeshadows
and 5 lip-smacking Lipsticks to mix
and match till you’re giddy.

AlaskaWhimsy

Coming as Mesh Head Appliers, Alaska also included Tattoo layers
for SL default heads and a folder marked “Extra Bakes-On_Mesh”.
Yeah, you guessed it.  This folder holds Letlutka and Catwa
tattoo layers for the Bakes on Mesh feature.
Isn’t Alaska generous?

So get your Whimsy on and let’s go!
Life is too short to always take so seriously….
