Brat Mode Loading

I am on my first day off this week, and I don't have to work until Sunday, so I'm allowed to let my hair down and live a little... I am going to have to party in SL though because I cannot handle the thought of going out in real life. I have a massive cold and my girlie monthly... Partying in Second Life seems like a much more exciting idea... 
I love to get dressed up and look all pretty, even if it's just in my virtual world, especially when you can look all sparkly and shiny and prettiful...

Outside the doors of Club X - a backdrop from Paleto - I had stepped out for a breath of fresh air grabbing my fur Alice Stole - from Caboodle - and since I don't smoke in SL all that often I popped in a piece of gum... 
The outfit that I chose to wear looks like one of those that are dressed to kill... A super shiny PVC 'Sukie' Dress - from Psycho Barbie - has some of the most AMAZING metallic textures I've ever seen on a dress, and teamed it with a pair of Enchantra spiked gloves - also from Psycho Barbie, in a equally delicious shiny PVC texture -  screams fabulousness and diva all at once. A dress like this causes a spark to ignite in me, the "Brat Mode Loading" - which you can see in the tattoo on my chest, a tattoo from Adora-tions, which is available until January 28th at Sense Event - someone turned on the crazy brat, the button glowing green, ready to go... Dare you to press that button?!

Even a Jedi has to Walk her Pug!

I know some of the things that I play with when it comes to my blog tend to be somewhat random. I am often inspired by the events in my life, the things that I'm enjoying or the things that I'm watching or even the things that make me unhappy will often be a reason that my blog goes one way or another... 
HellBone's birthday is coming up, and he's also more than a little excited by the fact that the Mandolorian is coming back in March, so for some reason Star Wars is on my mind... 
Then I met my brand new little friend, the force was suddenly strong... 

Standing on the face of the rocky planet, watching an ominous spaceship moving closer towards a Central Vortex - available now from Synnergy.Tavis - even though so many different things are slowly beginning to set in motion, there are things that cannot be forgotten... 
Even though she is a highly trained, and awesomely dressed - thanks to the amazing Florian Pants & Boots from AsteroidBox at the Midnight Order - Jedi knight, she had to find a moment or two to take Yoda Pug - a cute puppy from Rezz Room - for a little pee walk amongst the Carnivorous Pitcher Plants - from Hextraordinary at Midnight Order...

Lights for Good Fortune

I've been trying to learn more about festivals and holidays from around the world and recently I was looking at the Chinese New Year Celebrations, but there is one more custom that is a part of these celebrations, and that would be the lighting of floating lanterns and their release into the sky to float up amongst the stars... 
There is a location in Second Life, that has been perfect for watching the floating lanterns. It's a beautiful location anyway, but Cloud Edge is well worth visiting... 

Standing on a hill, high above the clouds I stand to watch the floating lanterns... Each of these lights represents a person letting go of their past and welcoming the new year with good fortune. I've lit my light and I'm watching it float off into the darkness... 
This year will be my year, I've decided to do all kinds of different things to move my life on, and right now, I'm making moves to become a better, stronger and happier person in all apects of my life... 

What is she wearing;
Hat & Hair: Wasabi - Cassidy FLF Ed. Hair

Aquarius, A Water Sign

There is a new event on the SL grid this month which should really grab the attention of a wide range of people across the board...

I'm going to swim in the aqua waves, I'm going to bathe in the waters of the Aquarius Bath - from Violetility at Stellar - and play with my adorable new friends the Mer-Cats- from Tardfish, which I am TOTALLY in love with because I have always wanted a mer-kitty - and while underwater I might partake in a bowl of some delicious Water Bearer Cereal - from Junk Food - which just like in Spongebob manages to stay in the bowl...

Candles Light the Midnight Order!

The Midnight Order has once again opened it's doors to the darkest parts of the magical places in the Second Life universe... The magic flows through it's sacred order and for a very short time it will seep into the light of the grid to share it's darkness... 
The outside looks like it's a beautifully sunlight day, the sands of the desert are calm and the wind isn't shifting th grains over the dunes... Inside the castle walls though, the darkness keeps things shaded and cool, magic happens better when it's cooler... 

Lurking in the shadows of the halls of the Midnight Order, I decided to light some of the Vered Set Candles - a Midnight Order release from random.Matter - to welcome the spirits in. Being a greeter of the KORE - from V/.VoluptasVirtualis - wearing their robes and marked by the Sjora Tattoos - from Lilithe' - hoping that the spirits will love the Midnight Order... There is so much pretty to come...

Rabbits for Chinese New Year

I tend to find myself getting so wrapped up in the big holidays - Halloween, Christmas, Valentines and even Easter to some extent, but there are so many amazing holidays in different cultures, countries and religions that I know little to nothing about... I figure that this year I'd like to take a moment to look at some of these special holidays and learn more about them. I will say now that I don't want to cause offence to anyone, and if I make mistakes PLEASE by all means feel free to come and talk to me about them - no need to be mean, remember I'd LOVE to learn. 
So for this first holiday, as it's the start of a new series of blog posts for me, I'm going to start with this weekend's holiday... Chinese New Year... 

Chinese New Year marks the start of the new Lunar Cycle, and the start of the 24 lunar cycles - and although it's often celebrated along with the more traditional Western New Year that we all celebrate on December 31st/January 1st cross over, the celebration is held on the arrival of a New Moon usually between January 21st and February 20th... Chinese New Year is one of the most important events in the Chinese Calendar, but it's influence has spread to many other neighbouring cultures too... The events are traditionally a celebration of honouring deities and ancestors, and there are many different customs involved including the lighting of firecrackers, or the giving of monetary gifts in red envelopes to promote good fortune, wealth and happiness... 
Alongside this, there is folklore dating back over 2500 years which links the Lunar Calendar with various animals, and it is said that people who are born on these year have traits that are representative of these animals. I was born in 1986 which is the year of the Tiger - and apparently it's a Fire Year too, so I am a Fire Tiger - but this year, we are entering into the year of the Rabbit!!
I hope my little creative attempt at enjoying Chinese New Year is right, I'm surrounded by bunnies, beautiful lights to light up the night and even being showered in some of those lucky money pouches... Maybe this will bring me some good luck...

Sitting Pretty in the Garage

Sometimes when I get the chance to sit and plan a blog post there is nothing that really springs to mind as to what I want to do... I have so much to do, the Midnight Order event opens today and I have a LOT of amazing new things coming that I can't wait to share, but for today I ran out of time, and I NEEDED to find something that could be quick and fun and show off my amazing sense of style... Instead of something that takes lots and lots of time to set up, I decided on a cute fun photoshoot for a little Look-of-the-Day... 

I am in LOVE with this outfit, it's one of those that I have been wearing on and off for a few days... These Agnes Pants - from AsteroidBox at Equal10 - look PERFECT with the amazing Riku Boots - from Breathe - as the dots on the pants look so close to the Riku Spikes. The rest of the most amazing outfit just all seemed to fit together so perfectly, and when I went to try and find the perfect place to pose, I didn't make it past the Warehouse - a backdrop from Synnergy.Tavis - where the cars are parked because it just seemed so cool and the perfect backdrop for my Look-of-the-Day...
