Future .....

I have been married for almost 18 years. In a chat with my husband we joked about if we knew back then how life would   work out would we still do it - we both answered at the same time NO and then laughed. It was only a joke but, I am glad we couldn't see into the future, it was nice to keep the dream while we had the chance.

Three Of My Favourite Things

Three brilliant things  - LAQ released a new head, The Annex released this cute dress (can wear without flower) and The Trunk Shower open.
First the head - I have been a massive fan of LAQ for  all  my SL live. Many new brands have come along over the years and older stores either have to fight back or die. I am pleased to see LAQ  keeps moving with the changes and with the release of Ana , LAQ is right at the top with the rest.  I have on a LAQ skin but with this head being omega you can wear many brands.
Second thing is this dress - The Annex is a store I am passionate about and not just because I work for them. I love the creations, I love the detail and I love the classic style off this dress. It is knee length and with the flower being an attachment it can be wore for more than weddings. Why am I speaking about SL weddings ?
Third thing is The Trunk show a new event with all things wedding. This event is just fantastic and been even more popular than I thought it would be. People  are falling in love with gowns all over again, even people who don't need a wedding dress. The kids are catered for at this event too and so are the men. I also seen a few things that would be great for people who have picture sims.  
So that is my three favourite things from this weekend in SL

No Way Home

No turning back, I'm gonna live here forever
There's no way home, no way home
Burn my eyes out, we're facing the weather
There's no way home, no way home
We're alive, soul survive
Trip on the footprints that we've left behind
Realising now, there's no way home

Arabian Nights

Enchantment is  open and it is as magical as ever. I do adore events with themes rather than just a random thing. After all if I want to see random I can walk down the High Street in RL but in SL I want the magic. I want the fun,  to dream, to explore, to dress in ways I never would dare. Enchantment creates that for me.

Oh sweetie, Monsters are real and they look like people

I think I would rather like in a tent than live with someone abusive, I grew up with crazy but now I don't have to. I am bless, I have a husband that loves me but not everyone is so lucky. I was reminded of this after chatting with a friend in SL,  she  went through the ' SL relationship isn't cheating on my marriage' stage. Her husband knew all about it, she never hide it from him  and he never seemed to care. Ended up, that was because it gave him space to cheat on her more than he was. When her Sl partner left, RL shit ht the fan . Long story short - she is divorced after alot of abuse, bought her own home that is small but beautiful and more important,  safe. Looking back she can see that the SL relationship was just filling a gap she was afraid to face. 
Some will jump in and say to even  hangout with an other can be emotional cheating, others play the whole family SL thing while their partner is sitting watching telly. All I will say is watch out, is it a fun escape or are you hiding from the real picture.

My Darling

"My darling, I don't ever want you to leave me

Strike A Pose

I don't wear my Akeruka head much because I don't have many skins to wear with it and I  find myself always wearing Catwa and LeLutka.  Today is different, that is because  DeeTaleZ released a skin for this head and  it also came with a shape. Shapes make a difference again in SL.  '
On other news, the sun is shinning and I was chatting with a friend from Devon,  a place I lived for a while. I always  miss the sea but now I miss it more. I could see the marina from my apartment  and wish I could go for a walk along there today.

Girl & Her Horse

 I have been lagging the hell out of places today and I am not even sorry about it. I  rode my horse all day, even when shopping. I would have loved to learn to  horse ride in RL but it was just something that was never possible. So I guess I will just have to live out this wish in SL, or until I win the lotto !

Basic Pleasure

Staring - ZenCho Balhaus
One of my favourite films of all time is Blade Runner, I think I have every version going on DVD and a Video Tape Box set. Its a film I never tire of watching, and the soundtrack by Vangelis is just beautiful. I am excited to see the new reboot that is due out in October, but I am also scared, that a brilliant format will be ruined...its the old adage of if it ain't broke don't fix it I guess.

Anyway here is ZennyRose (ZenCho Balhaus) in her homage to Blade Runner...This amazing look which is an Arcade Gacha prize from Violent Seduction..went well with the theme of a Basic Pleasure Model
