When I saw the set Kibitz had made for Fantasy Gacha Carnival this time my first thought was – Scheherazade. She who married a king and was saved from death by keeping him intrigued with tales she told each night. That’s the simplified version. Of course my brain works in a disjointed, yet related way and had me leap from Scheherazade to Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, from Ali Baba to the Aladdin, and now I have “Friend Like Me” from the Disney version of Aladdin stuck in my head. See how that works? Completely understandable, right?

The ROMP Fresh event kicks off today and let me just say… YUM. ROMP’s theme is elegant kink, and Fresh, which is their Winter fair, is centered around contemporary kinky items. I am part of [SL] Blogger Support group and since they were invited to check out the event a bit early, I got to beat the crowds and take my time looking around.
I picked out a couple of poses, some furniture, and some lingerie from the event and played around with them for a bit. Check it out …

Happy New Year / New Year’s Eve! [Depending on where you are of course.] 😉 I wanted to do a quick post for the Oneword event before I finished getting ready for tonight’s festivities. I don’t know about you by my New Year’s Eve plans changed multiple times. They started with a plan to go to a party at a bar that a friend of mine works at, then were changed to be at a friend of my boyfriend’s home for a party, and have now evolved to me having a houseful of people over for food, “friendly” competition, and fun. I say “friendly” because whenever my boyfriend Rob and his friends and my best friend Brian are playing anything it becomes this macho event. Actually it’s kind of humorous, especially when I beat them all. 😀
It’s far too easy to forget that we have so many things to be thankful for in our lives. Jobs ending, relationships gone bad, never seeming to have enough of what we want… things like those all tend to weigh so heavily on us we have a difficult time remembering the things we do have. I am as guilty of that as the next person. I have to make a conscious effort at times to take a step back and look at the big picture and all that I do have, instead of focusing on the little pictures of what I don’t.

I was recently invited to be a contributor to the SL Blogger Support blog. \o/ As such I will be writing articles about blogging whether it be about locations for pretty pictures, about new events, ideas for blog topics, about why I blog, etc. This is the first of my contribution posts. [You can see the post on SL Blogger Support here.]
I’ve long admired pictures taken on Neva Sky Villi. So I decided to stop just going there to hang out and knuckle down and take some pictures of my own. Thing is – there is so much to take pictures of, I couldn’t take them all. I actually took these pics about a week ago but have had a cold or allergies or something that has just kicked my ass this week or so. I went to Fameshed and picked up this dress and jean jacket from Coquet. I really like the look and feel of this dress. It looks so comfy. I have so much stuff that I’ve picked up lately – I am going to have to start picking up on the posting. But in the picture below you can see how I spent most of my week, when I hadn’t dragged my ass in to work. 😀 Finn is wearing >>>>>
