Warrior strong…

 

Am a warrior
am a warrior

what is a warrior?  is it someone who is this muscle-bound male that is portrayed all brawn no brain.  maybe years ago that could be the case.  today’s world I think there are so many female warriors who have overcome obstacles, events and succeeded.  a warrior might be thought of arrogant and uncaring yet that is far from the truth. The Urban dictionary definition is “Often intelligent, strong, determined, and skillful, a Warrior, despite whatever problems they may have, is perfect. In their own way, each Warrior is perfect.” I owe so much to my Dad who taught me to have spirit, never give up, have good work ethics, and also to be grateful for what I have in my life. He truly inspired me to become a warrior and I thank him.  in today’s world females need to be warriors in their own right.  I found this perfect quote to leave you with

She has a quiet confidence that screams loud, She is humble but strong
she is stable but rebellious. she is giving but not naive.
she chooses her battles wisely. she’ll stay silent
until it’s time to fight and when that time comes,
she will fight and she will win. Jordan Sara Weatherhead

Arlington…

Arlington
Today is Memorial Day in the USA ~ and to commemorate I wanted to visit Arlington Cemetery in SL the real Arlington was established as on May 13, 1864 ~ if you have ever been there it is so humbling to see rows and rows of interred soldiers that gave their lives.  President John F. Kennedy is buried there with an eternal flame designating his grave.  There is also the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers that is guarded day and nite no matter what the weather is by the U.S. Army ~ another sight that you won’t ever forget is there is a strict routine they follow ~ Marches 21 steps down the black mat behind the Tomb, Turns, faces east for 21 seconds, Turns and faces north for 21 seconds, Takes 21 steps down the mat, After each turn, the Guard executes a sharp “shoulder-arms” movement to place the weapon on the shoulder closest to the visitors to signify that the Guard stands between the Tomb and any possible threat. the 21 steps are to signify the highest honor of a 21 gun salute.  It is also an honor to be a member of this guard.  With that, I wanted to dress conservatively yet still look gorgeous and found just the right dress a gorgeous Boho dress by LIZIAAH that is at Designer Showcase.  here is a closer look in Violet

The fabric is just gorgeous along with the choice of colors and there is a demo if you are concerned about how it will look on you.  You only have 2 more days so please do not procrastinate on these as some designers do raise their prices after events.  Rides are below.

umm luv…

hey luv

Sten thinks he is funny with me trying to hold him up so we can have a casual pic of us, but first I truly hope he doesn’t fart or anything else that guys do as they try to be comedic.  can you tell with that big evil grin on his face?  this is not what I was truly looking for and for me what it should have been was a nice pose with us standing around the trees but hey for the giggles I get trying to hold him up okay I will admit it does look funny.  hope you all find the humor in this ♥♥ btw if you click on the pic you will see a full pic.  seems am running out of image space and I was told embedding the pic would help even though it does look like I will need to upgrade soon any other suggestions to get a nice big image on here I greatly appreciate ~ thanks ♥♥

Credits go to Kay Weston owner/creator of Image Essentials for creating this cute pose “Gimme a Boost” that is exclusive for eBENTO EVENT till the end of the month. thank you to my sexy hubby Sten for being a good sport as always to help me with this.

Dirt roads…

DirtRoad

on a dirt road we are not travelers but become explorers ~ a dirt road is meant to slow down, listen, and look. there is something about a dirt road that I just love.  feeling like a country girl with my bare feet, overalls and no makeup…you cannot help but smell the fresh pines and see the flowers in bloom.  bear and I enjoy being out in nature ♥ before I say till next time wanted to give a huge THANK YOU to Dani Graphelle for giving me a huge tip about embedding pics so I don’t use all my image space on WordPress…till next time please remember to be kind to yourself first then to others. ♥♥

Red Nose day…

 

RedNose
wearing the Red Nose 

today in the USA its Red Nose Day ~ this started back in 2015 by “Comic Relief” to raise money to help end child poverty ~ even $1 truly helps some child who is starving, with medicine and education.  it’s something I truly believe in, support and always donate what I can on this day.  even in the USA, 21% of children live in poverty and that shouldn’t be ~ sadly some children only get one meal a day when they attend school as I just cannot imagine not knowing as a child where my next meal would be.  no child should be growing up hungry.  need more information as just as this day ends the giving should never stop ~ please click on this link to learn more about what it is all about, where does the money go and lastly if you do want to donate please do…hugzz

 

Boxes…

Boxes
baggage and stuff

one of my favorite bloggers Sadystika Sabretooth did a blog the other day that gave me the idea for this blog ~ and yes in all those boxes I have packed away most of my emotional baggage.  no one escapes having baggage, it is what you do with it that makes a difference guess that is why am holding the violin.  those in the know will know what the violin represents *wink* ~ and while I look at all those boxes just piling up am realizing yeah I got quite a bit.  if I unpacked them they would overfill this room up and more yet they are sealed tight with packing tape.  it has taken me a long time to realize I do not need to open most of those boxes part of just growing.  thanks again Sady and if you would like to check out the blog post am talking about click HERE  Remember a little kindness to yourself and others goes a long way ♥♥

enjoying the day with Scatter & Scamper

sitting here just thinking about people in SL and how generous they truly are.  lately, I have been taking some online graphics tutorials to learn how to bump up my images more especially since I subscribe to them I should at least take time to learn.  if you are wanting to there are some really nice manipulation ones like the one I did from Rikard Rodin who collaborates with Kelvin Designs.  the tutorial said 2 hours to watch and possibly to complete, yet it took me over 4 hours *giggling* not that my knowledge of photoshop is at a beginners level I was pleasantly surprised at all I did learn from this.   not to veer off topic but I did want to incorporate pics from here and needed just the right pose.  yes, there are gobs of poses out there yet I needed a very specific one and to be honest am not a master of using Animare to create one.  finally, I broke down and asked in several groups that I belong to and Ni Avril owner/creator of Lyrium sent me an image that was absolutely perfect.  oooh, not only the pic but out of the kindness of her heart sent me the folder of the whole series.  I was touched by her generosity as I was getting ready to purchase which ones I thought would work, instead, I looked at her Marketplace and bought even more for future uses.  btw the final image that I created with the help of this tutorial “Fairy Specimen” you can see my results on Flickr.  you hear about the drama and the horror stories but you never hear about the good people and all the kindness that is in SL.  if you know of any good deeds please let me know it is always so nice to give shout-outs to those that help without asking for anything in return.  Again I do thank Ni Avril for her kindness as the pose was perfect…hugzz to her, to my readers who truly make my day with the comments and the following.  remember a little kindness truly does go a long way ♥♥

Attention guys…

Brutus1
Relaxing 

yes, this is to all the males in SL looking for mesh clothing that is affordable yet well made with options for several different body types.  a lot of males or at least 90% of males in SL want to look nice for themselves, for their mates and partners.  since the evolution of mesh bodies mesh clothing for males is slowly catching up.  Hoorenbeek is one of those clothing stores that truly produces high-quality clothing for male & female.  my friend Brutus is one that I will say is a very well dressed male in SL.  Hoorenbeek is probably is go to store for everything and was so excited they have started to make clothes for “Signature” the mesh body he has.  everything he is wearing is from that store and I had to take a look.  this store is huge and when you walk in the first thing I noticed was all the signage.  Very explanatory that you need to take time to read.  The layout is clean and simple.

Brutus1b
hat, shirt, jeans, sneakers by Hoorenbeek

The creator/owner makes sure each item has a demo so you can try for fit.  And the best thing my friend is so excited about is the owner/creator Ansor Hoorenbeek of Hoorenbeek is in the process of redesigning his clothes to fit specific bodies like Signature, Slink and Belleza along with the Classic *non-mesh* ~ it’s like for us females mesh clothing for most will fit my Maitreya with some adjustments now when I see clothes that are made for Maitreya I know it is going to fit perfectly.  This is how the male population feels too they want their specific mesh bodies to fit just as perfect and Hoorenbeek has stepped up to fill this need.  Guys and females too you truly need to check this store out especially if you are looking for quality, quality and quality clothing.  oooh, what I noticed the owner/creator really gives a lot of options in each item like the crew shirt.  there is a tucked, untucked plus a “chest only” to wear with jackets.  jeans also have various options and come with belts that have options for changes too.   a lot of thought goes into each of these items and as my friend says over and over worth every linden.  The ride is below in credits…♥♥

Credits~first I really have to thank my friend Brutus who time out of his busy day to model and talk about why he loves Hoorenbeek clothing.  btw if males out there know of other places that have stepped up and started making mesh clothing for a variety of mesh bodies please let me know so we can spread the word.  Here is your RIDE to Hoorenbeek ~ take your time to look around ♥ This was all shot on Brutus home with the tractor from hive that he recently purchased at 6th Republic that is closed so check out the main store for hive
