I was on my SL Facebook account (yes, I have one) a while back and one of my friends had posted a question about soul mates. The question, I think, was whether or not we believed in them and if we only had one in a lifetime. It reminded me of my favorite quote from Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert:
. . . A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. . .
In my life, both SL and RL, I’ve had what I’ll refer to as soul mates (notice it’s plural). My longest soul mate is my best friend from college who still puts up with my antics even though we’ve lived thousands of miles apart for almost the past decade. There are those who have come into my life in a romantic sense and even though things didn’t work out, they taught me about myself and still hold a piece of me. Of course, I can’t forget my RL sister who is my “sole sister” because she’s my running buddy and general partner in crime when we’re together.
So, in short… do I believe in soul mates? Sure, there are crazier things in life to believe in. Do I think you ever have just one in a lifetime? No. If you’re lucky then you have several.
Cynful just put out the pair of awesome skinny jeans that I’m wearing for The Rack event. You can find them in the main store today (11/24) only! They’re only 200L and they come with a bunch of options that Cynful is famous for. The jeans come in 3 different variations (cuffed, not cuffed, and for boots) and has a HUD that allows you to change the texture of the pant (regular or washed) as well as the belt texture.
So, if you’re like me and you love wearing your jeans tucked in your boots then you’ll want to grab a pair of these. I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing mine non-stop for the next few weeks.

It’s 6 p.m. where I am at and this is honestly the first free moment I’ve had all day. In fact, I really don’t have much time now as I leave for the airport in a couple hours. For some reason, things never are calm before traveling. Oh well, it’ll all be worth it. I just need some friggin’ wine. I wonder if they serve refreshments at 6 a.m. in Paris. Hmmm… something to check out when I get there. Ha!
Anyway, I couldn’t leave without posting the new releases from my future prim baby daddy, Truth. He doesn’t know it yet so, we’ll just have to keep that part on the down low. Now, stop staring at my hot pixels and go shop instead 😛
If you don’t know me very well then you might not know I have 8 tattoos in real life. They’re addicting and after I get one, I forget the pain, and go and get another one. I like to think I have more than 8, but that’s because I have a large half sleeve piece. And when I go home to visit this week, I plan on getting my 9th and 10th or maybe we should just count it as 9th since it’ll be at the same time.
So, you can imagine how much I love finding good body art in Second Life. And lucky me, Elska has opened up! Here are a few of their newest releases and keep an eye out because I know there will only be more to come!
Oh, and make sure you read the instructions when using the Slink tattoos because I had a blond moment and didn’t. It took me a little bit to figure out why I couldn’t get them to work, or, at least, until I decided to read the included instructions…

Ommm nom nom… *looks around before wiping her mouth* Oh, sorry, I was just… umm… sampling the goods from the Candy Fair. I couldn’t help it, I have a sweet tooth and look at all the goodies. Chocolates, gummys, bubble gum, candy apples, cotton candy, cakes, ice cream, lollipops… It’s just too much to resist. Every sweet you can imagine spread across 3 beautifully decorated sims. It’s like Willy Wonka exploded! And the items I’m showing you in this post are just the beginning. Which means you, my friends, will be getting a few more delicious posts!

I’ve had Tegan and Sara’s song “Closer” stuck in my head for the past few days. Perhaps, it’s because of a conversation I had recently about connecting with someone. You know, that feeling when you just have to be near someone in order to satisfy some deep craving. Unfortunately, I think a lot of times people get lost in physical attraction and they don’t give any thought to an emotional or mental one. In my experience, a physical connection to someone can only get you so far. Personally, someone has to have more to offer me than just their stunning good looks. Then again, I tend to enjoy people that can keep up with my randomness and off hand comments. Oh, and I suck at explaining things at times so it helps to have someone who can fill in the blanks. Though, I would appreciate if they could also remind me of why I was talking about whatever I was talking about… Which would totally help right now because I don’t know what I was saying other than I love that song at the moment.
Now, that I have officially confused everyone… Truth has released 3 new hairs and yes, I’m in love again. He’s reminded me of my fan-girl crush and I won’t go into it again since I’m pretty sure he’s considering an SL restraining order. Either way, these hairs were released with his new HUD system which makes it way easy to switch between colors and takes up less of my precious inventory space. It must be mentioned, though, that my favorite by far is Vida. I’m a sucker for braids mixed in with other styles (i.e an updo). So, go check it out and I’ll quit making your eyes bleed with my craziness!
Hair (from L to R): Vida, Felicity, and Anita all in Light Blondes Dress: Vershe – Sweetie Dress (Stuff in Stock) Necklace: Maxi Gossamer – Honey Diva Bo Bo
I really want some cake now. Random, I know, but that’s how I roll. And if you didn’t know this then you obviously have not been reading any of my blog posts. Anyway, I bring you a few more goodies from The Boobies Show Birthday event. It is so hard to figure out what I’m going to blog from this event as most of it is amazeballs. But don’t take my word for it, you should get your sexy patooties down there and see for yourself!
