“The morning had dawned clear and cold, with a crispness that hinted at the end of summer.”
— George R.R. Martin
Hey guys! Whew, can you believe we’re at the end of summer? I’m so happy it’s on it’s way out! I can see stores starting to put fall things in their windows and it makes me very excited for all things Halloween and fall inspired… Today, I decided to celebrate the end of summer. I went out and did all of the summery things I could. I ran around a few beaches with friends, I played beach ball with a few strangers. I made a few new friends. I even gave myself a mild makeover. Special thanks to AviGlam for consistently putting out beautiful skins for men and women. If you haven’t checked them out. You need to.
This summer has been a little difficult for me. The heat was really so so unbearable. Needless to say I learned my lesson and will be investing in an air cooling unit in the future. But besides the dreadful summer heat I’ve had a great time, running around with my friends. Listening to Mariah Carey. Decorating with my boyfriend.
I wanted to do something simple for my good-bye summer picture. I decided to keep things simple and do a backdrop with items from this rounds Collabor88. I chose this robe to wear and went for a more casual lounge wear look. I hope you’re all enjoying the last bits of summer.

Hey guy! Long time no see! I hope you all have had a wonderful summer! My summer has been suffocatingly hot. With temperatures reaching 100 or higher. I decided to take a step back from blogging until the heat wasn’t like the inside of an oven. Last summer was so good. I remember thinking that I didn’t want the summer to end. But this summer, I was more than happy to say goodbye to. It’s been finally cool here, I can feel the change of the season approaching. and it feels lovely.
It’s a well-known fact, that I. Am a huuuuge TerrorJr fan. So, you can imagine how happy I was to hear their latest single. The song really spoke to me. I found in this world we are too quick to reward bad behavior. We see this often. with politicians, celebrities, YouTubers and even here in our little virtual world. We damn people who do bad things but are too quick to call our friends bad people if they don’t agree or are indifferent to our views. I’m guilty of this too. I cut people out of my life too quickly, or I let them linger too long.
My boyfriend and I are currently working on our fall sim! So please look forward to seeing those projects on his flickr.
Alright, guys. I’ll see you all very soon!

Phew! It sure does feel good to sit down and blog! I’ve had such a busy few week/months and things are finally readjusting and I feel comfortable enough to sit down and gather my thoughts.
I usually have music playing through Pandora or similar when I’m in-world. I was shopping with my good friend Static when one of my favorite songs came on. It’s so amazing how a song can bring up old feelings and images that make you remember a simple time. I found myself playing the song on youtube on a loop. Maybe it was the Met Gala? Or the song, but. It inspired this outfit I got from BTTB. As soon as I saw it, I could see the type of photo I wanted to take with it. I love when clothes can inspire you.
My boyfriend is the same way. He’ll see a build and it will inspire him and before I know it. the sim has changed and gone in a different direction. I actually can’t wait to show you guys what he’s been working on! It seriously looks like an oil painting. I’m constantly blown away by his creativity.. Him being creative. Inspires me.
Also, before I close this blog. I’d like to touch on something that has bugged me a bit. Lately, I’ve been getting lots of inworld IM’s about my shape/skin/body. I’d like to say that those details are always on my blog. If I’m inworld I’m usually busy. Please respect my space. I just wear the bodies. I do not make them. I can not. and will not answer questions about a mesh body that I did not create or answer questions that can easily be found by using google or contacting the creator of said body.
Anyway, I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Good luck, -M

A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl. -Stephan Hoeller
I hope you’re all having a lovely day, I’ve found myself a bit overwhelmed over the past couple of weeks. When something big happens you find yourself looking back on people and situations you’ve wasted time on. You realize how short life can be.. and it scares you. You question everything. Plans you’ve made, personal milestones you’ve worked hard to accomplish seem so far away. And sometimes it takes breathing to realize that you’re the same person you were before everything went upside down. You’re glorious. Even if you have bruises from the past or new ones that keep forming.
I’ve lived my life in shame of the bruises people have caused in my heart. I’ve felt ashamed of letting people in only to have them take advantage of my kindness. I’ve had my world turned upside down and inside out and I’m still standing. In this life things will put a dent in your plans, things will happen that will shift your focus. Life will make a warrior out of you. But no matter how many dents or bruises life throws at me. I know I’ll be ok. Because I have a sturdy foundation filled with people who love me and want to see me at my best. Even when I’m a bundle of tantrums.
I’m very lucky to have the support system I do. I’m lucky to be able to reach out to my boyfriend day or night and have him be there for me. Growly Dad-jokes and all. I’m lucky to have friends in SL that will make me laugh when I need it, cry when I have to and are always up for a dorito fueled shopping adventure. I think we can all agree that I, loooove to get my shop on. Theirs so many events opening and lots of men’s events that I’m so excited to photograph.
Anyway, in closing. Remember to breathe, remember you are human. Make something for you that your grandmother would have. Snuggle up when it’s windy and read a book. And know, that no matter how hard something is. No matter how rough things get. You will be ok.

Wow, February has been tough, hasn’t it? I have to say, seeing social media and the way these young kids are so fearlessly standing up for who they are and what they believe in really does fill me with hope. I am in constant awe of how brave these children are and how they continue to support one another. it fills me with so much hope for the future knowing that it will be in caring brave hands. I know watching the news can be a little stressful and sometimes can weigh on you. So please if you can remember to take a step back and breathe a bit. I know this is a lot easier than it sounds, but sometimes it’s important to take a few seconds to emotionally check in with yourself and do what you need to be ok.
After I write this, I’m going to follow my own advice and watch a few movies that have always made me smile. I caught a tiny case of the blues today and I’m working my way through it. I’ve been listening to music and watching funny youtube videos. I even hung out with some of my very close friends and it managed to kind of pull me out of my little dark corner. It’s hard to be sad when you have a dorrito head and lil bb icon to make you laugh constantly.
I’m currently researching home remedies for a common cold! Ah, yes. It appears the sniffles have gotten the wolf bae down and I decided to take it upon myself to make him feel better! any way I can!. OH! I have good news! If you know me. You know I’ve been in love with Mandala for the longest time. It’s pretty much the only ears I wear. I was recently personally asked to be a blogger for them and it made my day. Mandala has been one of the few designers I have always been a fan of. I remember going to the main store and spending hours there buying jewelry and accessories. My first piercings were from Mandala and I’ve pretty much only go to them for my piercing needs.
Anyway, I’m gonna lay down and watch some Harry Potter. I hope you all have a great day!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I know I sure did. I took a few naps, ordered food from a few of my favorite places and watched a few movies. I was finally able to watch the Tom Of Finland movie. For some of you who don’t know, Tom has always been a personal hero of mine. His artwork has always influenced and impacted my own artwork, in real life and SL. I remember stumbling upon his artwork when I was young and being blown away by how open and free it was. I was glad I was able to see a different side of Tom, a side I really didn’t know about. Seeing his struggles made me feel better about my own.
My boyfriend and I started construction on our new sim. I never knew decorating could be this much fun. Or even that I could decorate. I’ve had so much fun rezzing all my animals and placing them, I finally found my ferrets or snakecat mousedragons as we call them in our house. (I lost them in my inventory for so long.) It’s so adorable to see them sniffing the air and being adorable. I think they’re from mish mish? If you have a chance check them out they’re so adorable!
Anyway! I went on a shopping adventure! I scoured the grid looking for men’s clothes that I didn’t own. I went from shops to events and finally, my feet landed at TMD. I thought I got everything I wanted from there when I saw a jacket from VALE-KOER .Which is one of my favorite stores. I was shook! It’s a hoodie with a face that’s the most adorable thing ever. I’ve never hit purchase so hard. I paired it with some riot shorts, socks, and some cox shoes. I also went to explore backdrop city. I was a little bummed to experience the epic lag, but it’s seriously an amazing sim. I’m actually writing this blog post while I try a backdrop gacha I saw there.

I’d like to start off this blog post, by wishing you all a happy new year! January was so busy for me. I kept finding myself distracted by things. At one point, I decided to take a step back and really enjoy January. Doing so, allowed me to really celebrate my birthday. It allowed me to open up and enjoy things I normally wouldn’t even notice.I found that being in a stable happy environment surrounded by people who love you, gives you strength to overcome things you might have been afraid of. Or to even see things you might have been missing.
I’m happy the holiday season is over. But if I’m being honest, I’m going to miss the holidays. I’m going to miss the twinkling lights and cookies. I’m going to miss the awful sweaters and little elves. But, In so many ways, I’m glad they are over. I’m glad I can jump back into my normal schedule of cuddling my boyfriend and listening to him grumble and talk about decor. We are currently working on a farm sim, that’s coming along quite nicely. You know your boyfriend loves you and has a decor addiction when he’s willing to build a house for you and your alts. Thank god, for all the events coming out with more and more furniture type things. I look forward to all the events that are featuring more and more men’s items. I’m so excited to see the wonderful creations people are putting out each month.
2017 had its ups and downs. But It had to be one of the best years of my life. I made friends with people after it being so hard for me to even speak to anyone outside my little bubble for so long. I’ve made friends with some really amazing people inworld.
friends that have made me laugh. Friends with whom I can watch Rupauls Dragrace with and will get my weird fashion references. It’s those friends that have made me laugh on days I felt sad, that have gone on shopping adventures with me at 3: am fueled by orange soda and Chinese food. Those friends who were patient and kind with me that have made my days so much brighter.
So, here we are. In February, the month of superbowls and valentines day cards. Love is in the air they say. And honestly, I couldn’t agree more.
