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….

RYRDFSThem

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.

The later presents us with two offerings of makeup that only she can bring.

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

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.

Captured

RYRByrne

I don’t know what came over me.
Maybe it was his music.
His voice, perhaps.
Kindness, Attention he paid, Patience.
Whatever it was..
I. Was. Captured.

Ever met someone and all circumstances go out the window?
You shake yourself trying to wake up — asking,
“Are you crazy” with the obvious answer being
“Hell yes!”

There is no story without pain and pain
always comes with a story.
It’s times like these that I pull myself up by a tuft of my fur,
take a deep cleansing breath and
move forward one determined step at a time.
Do I smile?
Nope.
That’d be fake and I’m on the real.
How do I dress?
Sexy.
Powerful.
Byrne.

Byrne, owner and designer of Byrne Boutique has created
an outfit that I simply had to blog.
Her and I have been friends for years and although she
did not directly ask me to blog her Rock Your Rack Exclusive
called Ronnie, she probably knew I would.

The coloooor!
Ronnie hits me all upside my Captured head with bountiful
boldness that’s sticky sweet.
Being a Long Dress, Crocheted Bra (Maitreya & Omega Appliers)
and a Bouffant Hairdo (not shown),
Ronnie makes the wrong seem right.
Coming in three color options, she is compatible with most Mesh Bodies.

My RYR Friendship ties don’t end with Byrne…

RYRAlmaLuna
Lua Vendetta.
I’d seen her throughout my years as a model,
but it wasn’t until a Halloween show where
she was a Prom Queen doing a Bob Ross (beating the devil out)
on a rival’s head that all communication barriers crumbled for me.
I laughed my ass off and still to this day, I can’t shake that image.
Yes, Lua.
This is Zoomy Bluebird.
Thank you for instilling such a wonderful memory
and continuing with LUNA.
Bringing us Body Art Music, a Limited manicure and pedicure set
at Rock Your Rack, LUNA makes your nails sing.
Created for Slink, Dynamics, Vista Bento, Belleza and Maitreya,
Body Art Music gives you the option to change your nails Black
as pictured above or White.

Onix.
Being the newest friend of the three,
I met Onix earlier this year.
She’s a beautiful person on the inside and knows how
to present that beauty outwardly.
Case in point: ALMA Makeup.

Pampa is a unique set of three lipsticks created by ALMA.
Inspired by “Argentinian-Gaucha Culture“, Onix has offered
these lippies to Rock Your Rack as a 100% donation.
Pictured above, they are available for Lelutka, Catwa
and Omega Heads only and is a Limited Edition set.
So once she’s gone, you’re out of luck.

My advice?
Come to Rock Your Rack and be Captured…..

Tell The Truth

RYRDBSCabbitPoint

I’ve gained weight, haven’t I?
Should I get plastic surgery?
Does my butt look like an end table in this dress?

Loaded questions!
To whom those are addressed to, most know that to answer them straight forward is asking for an invitation to sudden death.
There is a way to tell the truth, however, without needless pain and suffering…

If you have, it’s all in the right places.
Why get a breast lift when I can hold them for you for free?
An end table should be so lucky.

BOOYAH!
You live another day.
However, come here for a second…
Does my butt look like an end table in this dress?

This dress is called Burn Orange Japanese Silk and
Designs By Soosy (DBS) is the creator.
Bright with colors bursting from it’s seams, this mini
is compatible with Belleza, Maitreya and Slink Mesh Bodies.
For the daring, panties aren’t included.
However, DBS  has included Mocca Stockings via an Omega Applier
to give your legs some umpf.

RYRPallets

As far as end tables are concerned,
Anna’s Attic has that covered with the Beats Pallet Set.
I have a long history with pallets, so sitting on Anna’s
comfy couch brought back memories.
At first, I thought this set was dubbed Beats because of
it’s use of pallets.  It’s no secret that the wooden flats
take quite a beating carrying load after load of
precious cargo.  But, that’s not what Anna had in mind.
You see, the couch has 8 single dances and 1 Couples
Sway dance included along with several sitting animations.
The DJ Turntable comes with it’s own animation allowing
you to play your tunes and rock out all at the same time.
So, the Beats part of this set’s name is in reference to the music
you’ll be bopping to while using it.
The remainder of  the set is a Pallet Table, End Table, 2 sets of Headphones
and a Neon Lava Lamp.

Both creations from DBS and Anna’s Attics can be found at Rock Your Rack.
If you haven’t heard, Rock Your Rack is a charity even for breast cancer.
 Now in it’s 6th year, RYR involves 72 Designers,
features 2D/3D Artists and 3 Tribute Concerts.
Is that all?
NOPE!
Rock is also rocking it with 23 DJ Dance Parties, 12 Live Music Artist Shows, 6 Fashion Shows, the 10L Hunt and Silent Auctions.
It is an all inclusive event where there is literally something for everybody.

Beginning September 29th and lasting until October 13th,
the time has come for us to help raise money for such a
worthy cause.
You know you wanna.
Come on.
Tell the truth…..

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.

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!)
