In every angel, a demon hides.

We’ve all met that person, haven’t we? They’re friendly, approachable, kind hearted. They want to fight your battles with you, support you and soon a relationship forms and builds. But, what if that person was just using all this to take advantage? Wait until you trust, your defences are down and then manipulate you? What if they turn your words and thoughts against you so they appear the victim? What do you do then? Every relationship requires a leap of faith to develop beyond acquaintances. Do you continue to leap and risk being burned? Or do you…..not?

Summertime Madness.

She loved him. Once. When they were younger, fresher, full of life. Now, every night all she hears is the rasp at the back of his throat. The expulsion of air through his flared nostrils. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Minutes ticking by in the dead of the night, while the summer heat sizzles in the bedroom. At some point, between the sheets, sticky from his sweat and the incessant snoring by her side, murder seemed….reasonable. A viable option. A means of escape from the never ending…..noise. That rasp at the back of his throat. The expulsion of air through his flared nostrils. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Summertime madness takes many forms. But none as deadly as the voice of reason concluding that this was the only course of action.

My lovely friends Meri and Isabelle like to set blogger challenges. Perhaps you’d like to join us one month? If so, just poke one of us and we’ll tell you how it’s done. Meri’s interpretation of Summertime Madness can be read HERE and so can Isa’s HERE. Take a moment to read their stories, perhaps bookmark their blogs. You won’t be disappointed. Their words of wisdom and hilarity cheer me up no end ❤

Ultraviolence.

I spent some time with a friend yesterday and we saw the new Tarantino movie “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”. Now, growing up on Tarantino movies, there’s a certain expectation. There will be violence, drugs, sex and a lot of swearing. But, over the years other elements have crept into his movies. The star studded cameos. The attention to detail. The realism of every scene. Each is a homage to a bygone era. Don’t misunderstand me, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood covers some very adult material. This is Tarantino, after all. But it is done in such a well written, intelligent way that I left the cinema yesterday evening thinking “what a cracker!”

If you don’t know yet (and where have you been??!), Hair Fair opens tomorrow (17th August) and runs until the end of the month. The Demo group is already open and packed to the rafters with fantastic creations to sample. The group link is: secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about so join up and take advantage. My new crop is courtesy of [KoKoLoReS] and is one of their new releases at the event with 25% of each sale going to Wigs for Kids. I also popped to Flourish and combined this fab pose set with the latest r2 release at C88. The ensemble is very Kill Bill reminiscent, which is my little nod to Mr Tarantino too. On that note, I’m going to disappear somewhere before a killer nurse with an eye patch comes looking for me. Enjoy your Friday night ❤

Kuniko

While you don’t often see me wear it for blogging purposes, I love that SL is a role players fantasy land. Whether it’s Samurai, Pirate, Zombie, Neko or even Beako (ask me about this inworld), SL is a playground for people to explore their inner self and fantasies. With Halloween around the corner we’ll soon see a plethora of Witches and Demonesses but today I’m exploring my inner Japanonica. It doesn’t matter to me that the styles mismatch (tea ceremony hair, teeny tiny kimono and samurai sword was all the rage back then), what matters is I can explore and have fun experimenting in the process.

If you’d like to explore your inner Japanonica too, Neo Japan has just opened and is filled with goodies to play with. Check it out and have fun!

Mayla

There is something so whimsical about this new gown from Apple May Designs, I had to sneak a pic today 🙂 It matches perfectly with my new hair, a latest release from enVOGUE Hair at Hair Fair. Once October starts (tomorrow!!) I know my dark side will come out to play. But in the meantime, Whimsical Wynn has come out to play.
