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.

RYRCabbitSoulAd

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…..

Claws Before Paws

WiccaMinervaDuelist

I love what I’ve become.
Every inch of me.
As of right now,
there isn’t a single thing I would change or
anyone I would allow to change me….
NOT!
Along comes Wicca’s Wardrobe who totally and I mean
totally blows my paws off.
She’s shaken my resolve, so it’s time we have a one on one…

“I adore you Wicca, but come on, Sweetheart!
Why must you make it difficult for this Cabbit?”
(That’s Cat + Rabbit)
“You know how indecisive I am.”
(It takes me hours to finally nail down the colors I’m going
to use in her comprehensive HUDS.)
“I love my Paws.”
(They come in handy, pun not intended, for picking food
from between my teeth)
“I was perfectly happy until…
MINERVA.”

WiccaMinervaCups

“Andrew, tell them to take it easy.  That’s freaking Minerva!”
Anthony Perkins said that in the 1975 movie Mahogany when
his film crew attempted to move the actual statue of the Roman Goddess.
Side note:
Mahogany is one of my favorite movies.
Although, Rotten Tomatoes gave it a mere 29%, it’s 100% fab to me.
It was my first movie about fashion and just like one’s first love,
I will always cherish it.
(Smiles and dusts off the DVD)
Anyway, back to Wicca…

Ms. Merlin has created a Goddess of her own and she doesn’t need a dust rag.
Minerva Claws, now available for you to swipe at The Secret Affair,
may be fitted only for Bento Maitreya Hands,
but that’s the sum of it’s limitations.
Being a 100% Original Mesh Design, there’s nothing else like them on the grid.
I have a habit of zooming in on what I’m wearing and believe me when I say,
I’m awestruck.  It boggles my mind how someone can have such attention
to detail and the creativity to bring such ideas to light.
And then there is the HUD, Ladies.
I cannot express enough…THE HUD!
Let me break it down…
It has 6 Metal options for the entire piece.
However, changing each individual claw and both bracelets is also a choice.
The Knuckle and Bracelet Gems (6 Gem options)
can be transformed individually, as well.
You’re not into wearing the connectors with your current outfit?
Just want your middle finger to be bathed in metallic beauty?
No Problem!
Minerva also comes with Visibility Options so you can take off and
put on what you like.

(Scratches head)
What am I gonna do?
Paws — Claws?
Claws — Paws?
RAWR…..

Minerva Claws are High FURshion Approved!

Nothing Filthy About Being Rich

MaurineCollarClose2

Dubai.
The largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates.
Being the business hub for the Middle East, Dubai has attracted
world attention through large construction projects, it’s extremely
low crime rate and harboring the second most expensive hotel
rooms in the world.
Stunning.
Powerful.
Beacon for Success.
This is Dubai.
However, move over global city because this is also..
….Wicca’s Wardrobe!

I find it quite appropriate that Wicca has chosen her newest design,
the Maurine Collar, to be showcased at the current Dubai Event
in Second Life.

MaurineCollarClose

Like the city, this collar is HUGE in it’s style and versatility which matches
perfectly with Wicca’s Maurine Hand Accessories I previously
blogged about here.
Using the same color palette HUD, she is rigged to fit
Belleza, Maitreya and Slink necks only and comes
in two sections.
Wear them separate or together — the choice is yours.
Either way, rest easy in knowing that there is certainly
nothing filthy about this rich 100% Original design.

Maurine’s waiting for you and if you’ve lived
as long as I have, you’ll know that it’s bad luck
to keep a Lady waiting…..

Kick It

HeelsSneakers2

Kick the Can.
Alive and Kicking.
Kicked to the Curb.
Pumped up Kicks.
Are you starting to see a trend here..?
Good!
Then I don’t have to convince you that the best way to do
your daily kicking is with a solid pair of shoes.
HEELS has said pair called STARK Sneakers — perfect
for bashing open the doors of opportunity.

HeelsSneakers1

Designed for Maitreya and Slink Flat Feet only,
STARK surrounds your tootsies in cushiony comfort.
Having feet isn’t your thing?  No prob!
Wear them as props or earrings…
The point is…just wear them!
Why?
