Missing Melody's Market

I felt like having a really lazy Sunday today... The weather had cooled down a little bit and I'm hoping that it's more like normal right now... Yet it got me in the mood to go out exploring, and that lead me to the gorgeous sim of Missing Melody... 
It's such a pretty location, with a farmish area, and the carnival and market spaces that I spent a good deal of time just wandering around, planning that I'd be back and even - something that I never normally find myself doing - planning photos I'd want to take within locations at this gorgeous place!! 
I wasn't even planning on taking any photos but happened to almost accidentally luck myself into this shot of myself browsing the market stalls... I got some lovely bread, and a bottle of wine for supper and even some flowers for my table... I'm still debating if I should go back for clowns, but there is a stall with some gorgeous teddybears too... UGH decisions decisions...

Hair: TRUTH - Athena in Redhead (Past Group Gift) 
Skin: amara beauty - Freya in Ivory

Stay Proud!

The month of June is almost at it's end, and with it we will soon see the end of Pride Month... This year, Pride Month has taken on a different slant - telling you to be proud not just of who you love but also to stand up and fight for those that are different especially in the Black Lives Matter protests... Yet it all boils down to the fact that everyone, no matter race, sexuality or all of those intricacies that make us different and special, should be equal... Love is Love, and the colour of your skin or the body that you're in shouldn't make you less or more important... 
I've heard people wonder why I'm so excited about all of the pride goodies that I've been shopping for like a demon possessed... We'll let me enlighten you... First off, they may be right I'm not LGBTQ myself - unless you could count a few dalliances whilst I was at university and the feeling that I love love and wouldn't care what shape or form the person came in - but I have a lot of friends and family that are, both in SL and RL... I'd consider myself an ally if push comes to shove... I'm there to support, to applaud and to be family for those whose family pushed them away for being different. Secondly though, and this is definitely a silly reason... IT'S RAINBOWS EVERYWHERE PEOPLE!!!! Who doesn't love rainbows?! I love them... Seeing them in the sky always brings a smile to my face, but I cannot get enough of them no matter what way they come... I love all things dark and macabre, but dammit how can anyone not love a rainbow!!! 
There's still time to check out all of the awesome Pride events, including the SL Pride at Home mainstore crawl - but whatever happens, no one should change you, stay proud of who you are, and stand up for what you believe in!!!

Hair: Wasabi - Shae Hair in Fireworks

Chillin' Pool Side

I'm still on one of those HOT HOT HOT days, when I really don't feel like doing anything, with the exception of finding a pool perhaps?! I wish I'd bought one a couple of weeks ago in RL, but would I actually really use the thing?! Life's full of what ifs innit?! 
I guess that's why I seem to find myself pulled back to a pool ... It's like a moth to a flame, but I'm being drawn into some crystal clear water!!! 
This amazing pool backdrop from FOXCITY - just seemed to be the perfect place to lounge for the day... It's pretty and the perfect place for a girl to get some peace... Lounging poolside was one thing but I decided to slip into the water to do a little more lounging where it's cool... In that crystal blue water...

Backyard Snorkeling!

It's getting to be way too hot here in Holland... I think someone left the door open on the oven again and it's not feeling all that nice - kinda sticky, kinda gross... In case you'd forgotten or didn't know I HATE when it's hot... I got home from my job in the city, and all I wanted was to cool down, but it's just as hot at home and I don't have a pool... Really wish I had one of those little kiddy pools, I'd be sitting in that bitch ALL DAY! 
Rudh on the other hand has a kiddy pool and knows very well how to use it... Not sure it was meant to keep under water critters in - such as these adorable MishMish Starfish or Baby Octopus, and the Atomic Ocean Plushies - but you know Rudh, she's always been a little different! 
She's so busy, playing in her pool, wearing her face mask and snorkel so she can watch her little friends up close - thanks to this amazeballs pose from SamPoses called "Snorkling" that I spotted on Facebook and HAD to have! - she didn't even notice her little Boston Terrier was stealing bangers from the barbie!!

My hunt favourites included his Parka & Crop Top set, the little blue Denim Shorts and the Brown Leather Boots...

Cacti Pricks in the Heat!

It's getting hotter here... For the past few days it's been far warmer than I like, and because it's Holland it's like living in a sweat box... The humidity makes it so much worse than it would be if it was just hot! I wouldn't mind dry heat, but this stickiness is just yuck and the Summer has only just started!!! BLEH I hate Summer LOL... Although I'm not sure I'd be any good somewhere it's hot and dry either... 
Life in the desert with the Cacti is also something that's definitely not made for me! I HATE hot weather lol... I do like Cacti however, they have proven to be very adept adversaries in the battle to see who will survive in my RL home LOL... Other plants die but Cacti seem to withstand the Rudh, the cat and even the fact I forget they are there LOL... So when I saw this amazing gacha collection from [Since1975] called Cactus Land was released, and it included the best sofa I've seen in a while I HAD to have one hehe... It's perfect for the pricks in your life, they will feel right at home...

The Fairy Captives Escapes with the Crystal...

In the magical steampunk cities of Piltover and Zaun, where the feuding factions are fighting over the magical powers contained within the waters that surround this gorgeous urban sprawl... The inhabitants in hiding, while the captured fairy makes her escape through the steampunk streets, hiding in the shadows before she darts into the natural surroundings of the park to join her other fairy comrades... She got the crystal...
The crystal is a release from STOIC for the latest round of Kawaii Project - called the MAJIKKU Crystal - and she's happily "borrowed" it from the two cities... Taking it back with her into the fae realm... 
The chain around her neck is the remaining vestiges of her capture at the hands of the humans - a STATIC at We <3 RP release by the way - but it was her wings that most intrigued her human captors... Never had they seen the Steampunk Fairy's wings with their mechanical elements- which are a gorgeous release from lassitude & ennui...

Gacha Addiction in Second Life

I love Gacha, I'm addicted to Gacha... I will fully admit it and it's not something that I'm going to try and hide... I have a store on marketplace in which I peddle my unwanted goods - check it out here if you want -  and a hoard full of all kinds of different shiny things... Yet it's a bit of an addiction, although is it an addiction that I want to give up?! 
I'm not sure it's the best idea to be reading a book about how to give up gacha addiction while standing at the Arcade, surrounded by gacha. 
These self help books from Luc Boutique come in a range of different titles - including 1001 Dick Pics and this handy Gacha Addiction in Second Life.

A Party for One

I seem to be better off on my own today... I am fighting, or at least feel like I'm fighting, with people that I really shouldn't be having petty issues with, and it's beginning to break me... My normally carefully constructed exterior of bubbly, light happiness is cracking and letting people see between the cracks and they don't seem to like it all that much... 
So I need to do something that will make me feel better... Something that will give me a boost of happiness... I'm going to throw myself a little pool party, to celebrate me! A little pool party of one!!! 
Some good music, lots of bright rainbow colours - thanks to some of the awesome Pride related goodies that I picked up at this year's SL Pride at Home event  - and a dip in my perfect little Social Distancing Pool - from NOMAD - washed down with some of Kora's fruity pink lemonade rum cocktails!!

The Problems of Dogs in the Rain

Even though the sun is shining now, it's a little deceitful... There's more rain predicted, as if we didn't have enough already today... This morning when I woke up the skies had opened and it was POURING! Typical on a day when I have things planned that I need to do, but even worse, if you're a dog owner... 
I love my god I really do, but on days like this today, when I had to go out into the rain for her to have a wee... I'm seriously thinking "could I try training her to use the toilet?" 
I love to walk Izzy, make sure that she gets in her daily dose of tiddling where another dog has left a make, lots of sniffing and plenty of standing stone still waiting for another dog to be out of her way... The worst habit she has though is that she will poop, I have to pick it up, and then two minutes later she's pooping again and I have to carry not just one but TWO POOP BAGS!!! 
I was inspired by the release of the new Dog Park Items from Star Sugar, which included the epic Waste Station, and while I set up to go for a walk it started to rain.

Hair: Wasabi - Shae in Fireworks

Lollipops from the Nurse

I've actually been feeling pretty good... No headaches - though I'm knocking on wood as I say that - and I'm dancing... Things seem to be starting to get back to normal-ish, I mean the progress is still slow, but that doesn't mean we're out of the woods yet. I mean Europe may be opening but there's a lot of places in the world that are still locked up tight... Even the monsters out there in the dark and still being cautious, going to see the Living Dead Nurses in the Hospitals of Hell for a shot... 
The plus side, once you've been a good little monster and had a shot from the Vile Syringe - a !Reliquary! Item by the way - and if you're very lucky, the dead nurse will let you have one of her deviously delicious Lollipops - from the brilliant Spookshow - so long as you don't tell anyone that the tangy flavor is the cyanide they are laced with! 
Now, are you going to be a good boy and touch your toes?!

A Touch of Beach Glamour

They say that Life's a Beach and it really sounds nice to be on the beach right now, but in RL here they are limiting access and turning people away from the beaches on the grounds of social distancing... 
I've never been a lover of just sitting on the beach, and I really don't like swimming in the sea, but I used to spend hours with my mum on family vacations collecting pretty shells or sea glass. I have many bottles of them on shelves in my house, each a memory of a happy time! 
Rudh on the other hand is a little more of a beach bunny, maybe because she's got the figure for it, but she loves to laze around on the beach in a bikini!! 
The CANN!BAL beach is gorgeous for doing just that... It's the stuff of photographer's dreams, and there are lots of hidden places to spend a while with your loved one... 
There's also lots of places to show off that amazing beachy look you pulled together!! Just like the one Rudh wore to the beach today!!! Everything from her amazing Shiva Hip Wrap - from Cellar Door - to the cute Foxes Bikini and the super cute Le Fleur Sandals - from 1313 MockingBird Lane, which I have included a close-up look of by the way - are teamed together for perfection on the beach... 
What is she wearing;

Aren't we all Human?

This post I've been on the fence about writing for sometime now... Looking at the world around me has made me feel like I really needed to take a deep look into politics, social rights and justice for all, and I have to say that after everything that I've seen reading and hearing I came to the major realization that I've been both closeted and left in the dark about so many things that I don't know whether to be be scared or furious! 
Some people may think of me as a hypocrite for jumping on a bandwagon, and that's a fair opinion to have, but in all honesty for me personally there is more to it than that... The recent events springing from the death of Floyd George at the hands of the police and causing many places not just within his homeland of the States but also across the world, has forced me to stop and really take a look... Yes I'll agree that it's terrible I haven't really paid attention to it until now, but my eyes have been opened... 
I've come to realize that my initial thoughts of "All Lives Matter" was one that came from a closeted, white girl perspective. 
While it's true that all lives SHOULD matter - should being the key word here - it's not the case, there's still so much racism and inequality, and that's not just aimed at people with darker skin! It's Pride Month, and even though having different sexual preferences has become more of an accepted thing, that's still considered abnormal by some people...  People of differing sexes or ages, people that have different hair colours, people that don't fit the norm of what shape humans should be... The list goes on, a list of discrimination in society that claims to have stamped out social differences, it is a bigger crisis than the pandemic that the world is still in the grips of! 
It shouldn't matter what colour you are, it shouldn't matter where you're from, it shouldn't matter your background... What should matter is that we are ALL human, we're all made of the same squishy blood and guts - the changes on the outside just make us beautiful and diverse... All lives should matter... ALL LIVES! 
We cannot change the history we have left behind, the bad or the good, but until things change with the inequalities of colour, race, gender - nothing will improve and no lives will matter! I will never fully understand, but I will stand! NO LIVES MATTER, TILL BLACK LIVES MATTER! All lives will matter when all lives are treated equally! 
If you want to learn some more, there are places in SL you can check out... The Black Lives Matter Tribute Wall - where I went for my protest - and the Stand for Justice Event or website... Both of these places have information and things you can pick up to learn more... Isn't it time we all started learning to be better to our fellow man?! 

What is she wearing; 
Headphones & Mask: Violetility - BLM HeartPhones (Special Edition for Stand For Justice Event)
Hair: Doe - Blip in Indecisive 
Skin: amara beauty - Freya in Ivory 
Glasses: e.marie - Pride Frames V1

Calling the Saints and Sinners

I wanted to do something a little dark and mysterious, a little leaning towards the dark side as the living dead doll in me is trying hard to fight her way out again... She's needing a little time in the light to lure the unsuspecting souls back to the darkness with her... 
She walked through the door in her somewhat angelic dress - a gorgeous Cherubic Dress from toksik - looking kinda sweet and innocent with her pretty pigtails - from Foxy - although that sweet angelic look is mostly just for show... If you look carefully at her face there's something a little Undead about it - thank you Father - the jeweled head dress and her jeweled septum - from Zombie Suicide - dressing up the dead little demon... It's amazing she can even wear so many relics of the Spiritus Sancti - a gacha collection from LUX AETERNA at The Arcade... 
As a side note, although I LOVE my main picture I wanted to give you a little closer look at things like the adorable Zombie Suicide Chained Septum Piercing.

Glam for a Night with the Ladies

For some reason I feel like doing something short and sweet, simple and pretty, and a little glam... I'm kinda tired, kinda stressed, and have been more than a little bit bored! So after a day of work, the little glamazon me decided to change from my gross work uniform and into something a little more divalicious as I head out with my Doggie for drinks... 
In the darkened entrance hall of her apartment building, she struts across the floor with her phone in her hand and a dog in her bag... 
Her outfit is super cute, but a little more Glam than she's used to! The super girlie Lucy Pants - from SPIRIT - although her Mug "Dior" harness with a Cynful Widowmaker Bikini top... Accessorising the look with her Dog Bag and CULT Sunglasses!

Life's a Beach for Summer of Goth

Life's a beach at the Summer of Goth for Necrosis... There's so much pretty but pretty dead stuff available in this round that a girl simply cannot resist getting her swimwear on and heading to the beach... 
She grabbed my big pink flamingo floatie and headed to the beach at Amavatar and went for a dip in the ocean... Had to be a little careful, didn't want my new jewellery to get wet... It wouldn't work nicely with salt water... I mean the Pentagram Nipple Shields couldn't be covered anyway, so I had to wear my Ayumi Bodysuit and leave the straps down, but I also don't want my gorgeous Debbie Necklace, the feisty looking Pentagram Earrings and my awesome make-up or wounds to get wet and salty... Salt in the wounds, OUCH!!!

"Yes Chef"

I LOVE BAKING... I'm not the best cake maker in the world but I love nothing better than fresh cake and the smells of it as it's cooking... 
Rudh used it as a chance to be a little creative and naughty in the kitchen... You never know where you will find some of her interesting toys, it's like anywhere you are in her house there are some of her special toys close at hand... Although today while she was baking, and making a mess in the kitchen, someone came in an caught her in the messy act... 
Looking up she can't help but give a cheeky grin... The Chef standing over her asking about her freshly baked cake, with a message iced onto the top of her heart shaped cake - from LEMME - she smiles coyly and says "Hello Chef"... That board in her hand, not much like the chopping boards in her kitchen, more like a paddle for a naughty little sous chef! 
The look in her eyes says "Abuse Me, Chef", and yes this pose from Extra was not actually meant for use in the kitchen, it worked out pretty well... and maybe if she's really lucky, she'll get to use some of her other favourite things in the kitchen!!!

Today is the opening of the brand new round of Necrosis, that dark and macabre corner of the SL Events that happens every now and again! This time we're heading for the Summer of Goth...

At the Block Party in our backyard, we have some burgers and bangers on the amazing casket BBQ Grill - from Immoral Designs at Necrosis - and we have plenty of beer on ice. The bikers are turning up, there's one of the bikes parked up by the fence - it's the Suicide Skull from Hogs & Cart Wheels by the way - driven over by HellBone as he came to bring me more burgers and beer! 
Now that the foods-a-cookin' now it's time to slap on our factor 666 Spookshow Goth Block, dress up in our best Dead End Shirt - a top from Beauty of Darkness - and some Sunny Sunglasses - from Normandy - to block out the last of the day's rays...

Singing As You Start The Day...

Some days while you're getting ready to start your day, you - if you're like me - may find yourself starting to have fun and doing things that are super silly to brighten up your day... 
Is it just me or if you're getting ready for your day, and your favourite song comes on the radio, anything that you have in your hand becomes a microphone... Usually it's my hairbrush, and that baby becomes the best microphone for a performance at the biggest concert of my life... 
Today I'm rocking my heart out to something a little Take That-ish and I'll sing my little heart out - it reminds me of my teen days and that is making me happy!
I know I wasn't looking as primped and preened as normal, having just pulled on a Boyfriend Hoodie - from BOOSH - and a pair of Cody FemBoxers - from MuggleBorn - my hair still looks like a mess from being asleep and my skin... well it's pimpled...
I don't care... I am gonna rock out in the mirror like I'm winning a Grammy...

On the Beach

Summer seems to be finally on it's way in, and although I'm REALLY not a huge fan of summer - I don't like it when it gets hot - there are perks to the long daylight hours and sitting in front of a really big fan! I LOVE being able to play around on the beach with Rudh, although in RL I'd much prefer it when there's no one around like in the middle of a storm. 
Yet in SL there is nothing better than a day at the beach in a teeny bikini building sandcastles with a few friends hehe... 
Today, the friends that I took to the beach just happened to be of the furry variety... Two of my Jian made, beach loving boys - a 'dorable Dane and Beach Party Pointers - and both seem to be having fun on the beach, giving me enough time to build an epic sandcastle... 
I bought some lovely beach furniture with me, so that when I'm done building the castle I can lay back and drink a nice cold beer - actually the furniture and the bikini are both items from a gacha collection created by Petite Mort for the still running round of The Gacha Garden, which is open until May 31st so you have a few more days, and there are bikinis in various colours as well as the furniture... It's very comfy to sit in and drink a beer...

The Wolves Watch Over Her

Deep in the caves under The Empire of Dreaming Books, you'll find the labyrinth of tunnels filled with all different kinds of secret texts that hold the mysteries of life...

Rudh is one of these dark, depraved souls... She's come down with some deep need for some very dark magic and has heard that the books in these caves hold the secrets she desires.
