Stampede

RYRDFSUsTrampled to death.
Sometimes, that is the best way to describe how I feel.
And this is one of those times.
I’m on an emotional roller coaster, Ya’ll.
Up, down, left, right and under the damn-ass dirt.
Gawd, don’t let the tears start because when they do,
it’s a total stampede….

In this state, I try not to burn bridges.
The relationships I have with others are special and unique.
But, if you bombard me, I can’t think.
I can’t create!
I can’t love.
I’m gonna lace up my Converse and seriously think about
running away with the herd.
I need space.

Keep Calm, ya say?
Pfft.
First, I gotta get calm.
They say having pets can bring such peace.
Well, guess what?
I’m surrounded….

It’s rare for a Blogger (this one, anyway) to be asked to write about
something so unique and fun, that you adopt it into your everyday life.
Clothes, Hair, Makeup, Jewelry, Shoes — I have tons
(most I purchased myself).
I even have animals like KittyCats, but nothing like this

How do I explain Second Life’s Digital Farm System?
Well, let me begin by taking it from the source:

“Digital Farm System (DFS) is an amazing new farming simulation system on Second Life (SL), which allows player experience the depths of farming life by planning their farming goals, breeding different types of farm animals, and grow their own crops, plants and trees.”

DFS is amazing.
Straight up.
It’s so involved that I can barely wrap my head around it.
Not only do you raise farm animals like Cows, Bulls and Pigs.
But, also tend to crops, butcher (unless you’re vegetarian)
and cook what you’ve grown.

There is a huge trading system in place and although I am new to it all,
I plan to become more involved.
Here is your opportunity to join me.
DFS is presenting an Exclusive for Rock Your Rack.
The RYR Cow, pretty in pink and branded with a
Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon on her hinney is the perfect way
to begin your farming journey.
Along with their Halloween 2018 Bull, Hay and Water,
You’ll be bouncing baby calves off your knees in no time.
Honestly, I can’t wait and neither can you…
Ya see, TODAY is the LAST day for you to snatch up
Your own RYR Cow since TODAY is the FINAL day for Rock Your Rack.

One High FURshion entry simply isn’t enough.
So, I will be posting more as time goes along.
In the meantime,
moooove over….

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.

1 Day

RYRChiffonHeartsdalePoufFireplace

24 hours.

Sometimes that’s all it takes for your life to change.
It could be for the good and the not so good.
The change can be temporary or last a lifetime.
Some of it is up to us, while there are times fate says,
Hell, no.  I’m driving this ship!
In 1 day, my life has metamorphosed into something quite pleasurable.
What is it?
It’s a bimil (secret in the Korean language).
Ssssh….

So, what about you.
What has your last 86,400 seconds been?
Joyful?  Painful? Uneventful?
Setting my bimil aside, mine has left me feeling quite
Elegant.  Sexy.  Demure.
Chiffon.

Just in time for Rock Your Rack, Chiffon is offering Katanka, 
8 lovely and Exclusive Mermaid Gowns with 1 being Limited.
Featuring a Feathered Corsage which attaches to the left side of your
chest by default (I’m wearing it as a Headpiece), Katanka
is compatible with Belleza, Maitreya and Slink Mesh Bodies;
offering 5 Fitmesh Sizes, as well.

Wearing 1 of the 8 called Bottle, I discovered the perfect
accessories to add sparkle and shine.
Created by Hearthsdale Jewelry, the Boho Charm Set is also
Exclusively at Rock Your Rack.
Set in gorgeous Red, Pink and Teal gems and stones,
Boho’s charming Necklace and Earrings are Unrigged,
so you can place them beyond the points of expectancy.
(Foreheads are lovely areas of the body — don’t you think?)

All this change of mine needed a place to rest and marinate.
Without hesitation, ACD (Anam Cara Designs) swept me off my feet.
The Musical Notes Rug, a happy place to calm and keep calm,
comes in a Decor and PG Version.
With 100% of it’s sales donated, Notes has 8 Texture options for both
and 95 animations in the PG Version.
Giving me a place to lean and so much more,
ACD rolled the Squishy Pouf my way.
I love it!
Taking on the shape of a comfy fluff, Squishy gives you a plethora
of Texture options whether you want to go with Leather or Vintage.
Need a massage?  No problem.
Adult coloring your type of stress relief?  No problem.
Blowing bubbles tame your savage beast…

RYRChiffonHeartsdalePoufBubbles

…no problem!
Squishy has all that and much more.
She’s like coming home to some warm Furry lovin’ after a hard day.
Oh and just in case you hadn’t figured it out, both of these ACD creations
are featured at Rock Your Rack.
Aaaah.
Now, I can lean back and contemplate what my next
1,440 minutes may have in store.

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!)

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.
