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!)

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……

Rubik Rights

CygnusAugustSquareDance

Defeated.
I guess that’s the only way to describe my position when it comes
to solving what won the 1980 German Game of the Year
for Best Puzzle….Rubik’s Cube.
I gave up years ago twisting and turning
each of those six faces covered by nine stickers
(current models have colored plastic panels for longevity).
However, the Cube lives on with it widely being considered
the world’s best-selling toy.

In the past, primary colored cubes brought back memories of
frustrating hours tearing out (my hair) and tearing in (my eyes).
That was until Cygnus Designs came along and gave me the
right to get my cube on.

CygnusAugustBoxed2Pieces

In keeping with this month’s DAZZLE Event theme celebrating
Piet Mondrian, Cygnus has created the Mondrian Cube Outfit.
100% Original Fitmesh, this multicolored cubed skirt is
compatible with Slink Hourglass/Physique and Belleza Mesh Bodies,
as well as Standard Sizes for classic avatars.
The matching Bra and panties can be worn via Omega Applier
and System clothing.

Victory is mine!
Thanks to Cygnus, I am now wearing the cube instead of the
cube wearing me down…..

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…..

LIVIE has been High FURshion Approved!
