Those who can…Burlesque!

I love Burlesque. Yes, I know some only perceive it as women getting their kit off and shaking their tatas about. But, if you’ve ever been to a burlesque performance you realise quickly it’s so much more. Every show I’ve seen has incorporated women of all shapes and sizes and women with various levels of experience in performing. It’s been about empowering women to appreciate their bodies and have the confidence to stand up and state “this is me and I love myself.” And isn’t this what we, as women, should do for each other? Build each other up and support, rather than pull each other down?

Henna and Silks

Every month seems to be packed with events now in my SL shopping calendar and this month is no exception. These gorgeous silks are newly released from 1313 Mokingbird Lane and are at 4Mesh. Add to it the pose from DoggMata Poses at The Underdog Event and my lovely lipstick from Nightmare at Suicide DollZ and we’re just getting started. With two other major events opening today (The Epiphany and Pocket Gacha), it seems my shopping habit will keep being satisfied for a while yet.

Nothing wrong with warming yourself by an open fire…even if it’s your butt that gets the warming first! Who knows what else the fire may warm up, if I’m lucky enough 😉

Be Merry

…..or “Time to crack open the shiraz” as I also like to call this time of year. I should really be slapping myself on the wrist as I mentally told myself no festive blog posts before the 1st December. But, there you go. I suppose rules are meant to be broken. I’m going to squarely place the blame on this cute sweater dress I’m wearing because, well, it makes me feel festive (mutters). I’m also going to place the blame squarely with this pose because, well, it makes me want a large glass of one. But then again….this time of year, it’s the only way I can survive the chaos of family get togethers >.>

Saint or Sinner?

Or should that read Sinner or Saint? Most people I’ve met in my life are inherently good, decent people. Whether they always do good and decent things is another story. We all have this capacity…but circumstances, desire, anger, greed; they can get in the way sometimes. There will always be the very small minority who are just….horrible people. They are the ones I try to avoid, usually after I’ve given them one too many chances. We learn some of our greatest life lessons the hardest way.

I had the opportunity to visit Madpea’s latest immersive game inworld today and sneak a few preview shots for you:

Huds are available to purchase now at the Madpea game starting point. From what I’ve tried (and failed at) already, you may want to get a group together and lose yourself in the experience. Good luck gamers, and enjoy!

Dream Weaver

Sometimes certain songs stick in my mind, remind me of moments or feelings. This one reminds me of sleepy happy cuddle moments when my special someone can just make everything…..better.

“I’ve just closed my eyes again
Climbed aboard the dream weaver train
Driver take away my worries of today
And leave tomorrow behind”

13 Reasons Why he Had to Die

“You know those moments when you know something bad is going to happen, but you’re just not able to control yourself?” That’s how I felt listening to each tape in Madpea’s new gacha “13 reasons why he had to die” . It’s available at the Man Cave event now and ends on the 9th July.

13 reasons why

Each common in the gacha is a separate tape (13 in total) detailing why he had to die. You will need the rare (cassette player) to play each tape. But, once you’ve completed the story a bonus achievement becomes available. Good luck and have fun! Just….stay alive *winks*.
