Find That Magical Place in Your World … and Live There

Princesses and dragons
Horses pulling wagons
Sun shining bright
The moon glowing at night
It’s all just a fairy tale to me…

…I wake up in reality
Up from a dream
Fairy tales make my heart beam
For the joyous wanders
The mindless ponders
Its all just a fairy tale to me

The Oneword event kicks off again tomorrow – and this round marks their one year anniversary. And the theme word is? Fairytales. I wanted to do a post before the event opens tomorrow with some of the things you can get there. I will have more later…

Take Time to be Quiet

It’s been a busy week so this is  just a quick post with some more goodies from the Shiny Shabby event. There was a lot of cuteness to be had and I can tell that this is going to be one of my favorite events to look forward to!

I’m Pretty Sure I Did Something to Deserve that Spanking…

…what do I have to do to get another? 😉

The other day on Plurk someone asked what some fetishes or kinks people had. I’m not entirely sure what prompted the question, probably curiosity most likely. With the popularity (or infamy) of 50 Shades of Grey, “kinky fuckery” has been more widely talked about. [NOTE: I did read the books at the urging of a friend, but I will not be seeing the movie. I honestly have not heard one person say anything better than “It was alright” about it.]

We Can Never Obtain Peace in the Outer World Until We Make Peace With Ourselves

“The worst battle you have to fight is between what you know and what you feel.”
~ Unknown

Life is a learning experience. That experience can be both a joyful one or a painful one, or anything in between the two, and often simultaneously. Sometimes you realize that the biggest obstacle you have in learning and growing or moving forward, is yourself. For personal reasons – I won’t go into them here – I’ve been in a battle with myself as of late.

When I saw the topic of Berry Singh’s Monday Meme this week, I saw it as an opportunity to focus on some of the positive in my life. The challenge is to share things that you’ve learned as a result of your time and experience in Second Life, whether the reasons are personal or professional, whatever those “lessons” have taught you.

Your Light Will Shine When All Else Fades

Stardom isn’t a profession; it’s an accident.
~ Lauren Bacall

A couple of weeks ago I came across an Oscar fashion picture contest via Strawberry Singh’s weekly roundup. Harper Ganesvoort has been hosting this contest for some time, as this is the 6th year this contest has run. This is the first year I’d heard of it and planned to enter as soon as I heard. The idea is to get dressed up in your red carpet best and take an Oscar themed pic. You can see all the details here on Harper’s blog. The cutoff date is tomorrow, Feb. 22 by midnight – which is fitting since the Oscars are tomorrow night.

I’d been meaning to take a picture as an entry for about a week and finally was able to grab  my friend Colby early this morning to take the picture I had in mind.

We must change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden

…When the storm comes,
You shelter me.
And I don’t say a word,
And you know exactly what I mean.
In the darkest times,
You shine on me.
You set me free.
And keep me steady as we go…

Troubles they may come and go,
But good times be the gold.
So if this road gets rocky babe,
Just steady as we go.

Sometimes I just don’t have words when I’m in a mood so I let songs speak for me. Today is one of those days. ❤  I wanted to share some of the goodies I picked up at the blogger preview for the Shiny Shabby event that is opening in just about an hour. Man, is there a lot to love, take a look!
