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.

So, I got a release that Vershe put out for the Singer Icon Fair and I couldn’t help but put on my mesh attachments. What can I say? It’s booty and booblicious. And, if that’s not already a word then it is now because I said so 😛 In case you haven’t gotten to the Singer Icon Fair yet, then you’re in luck because you still have a week!

The days when responsibility didn’t get in the way of fun. Before all the heartbreak, hurt feelings, and users ruined all that was innocent. Then again, there are probably plenty of days when I was younger I wouldn’t want to relive. So, maybe all the things that life has thrown my way aren’t so horrible.
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…
