Gravity….

“Gravity”

Lyrics by Sara Bareilles

Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do I’ll still feel you here ’til the moment I’m gone.
You hold me without touch. You keep me without chains.
 I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your rain.
Set me free, leave me be.
I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I’m supposed to be.
But you’re on to me and all over me.
You loved me ’cause I’m fragile. When I thought that I was strong.
 But you touch me for a little while and all my fragile strength is gone.
I live here on my knees as I try to make you see that you’re everything I think I need here on the ground.
 But you’re neither friend nor foe though I can’t seem to let you go.
The one thing that I still know is that you’re keeping me down
You’re on to me, on to me, and all over…
 Something always brings me back to you. It never takes too long.
Gravity…. A force to be reckoned with to be sure.   Anyone who has ever tripped over their own feet has felt the full force of it.   I’m a firm believer in gravitational malfunctions tho!   I will never accept that I’m not *looks both ways before whispering* “graceful”.    But speaking of graceful… I love getting dressed up in fancy dresses and heading off to a nice lounge to hear singers crooning about love that lasts forever or even the tunes that tug your heart about loving the one who can’t or won’t love you back… *sighs*    Ok I’m a sap… but don’t you just love…love.   Gravity doesn’t just pull us down tho does it…. if we read the definition of gravity.. we see that it’s the force that attracts a body toward the center of the earth, or toward any other physical body having mass.   I knew there was some reason my body always seems to want to fall on top of the ones that I seem to find attractive!    That is what it’s saying…. Right?

Shadow….

Definition of Shadow – That which follows or attends a person or thing like a shadow; an inseparable companion; hence, an obsequious follower.

Happy Birthday to Me!!!!…..

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” ~ Oprah Winfrey
Well today is my big day!   Well not the me you see.. but the real me that does the typing and talking.   Another year has rolled around to make me older… again!   I gotta figure out how to slow down these dreaded hands of time.   I remember being a teenager and wishing and wishing that my birthday would come.   Now…. I’m not so sure that I like the sound the cuckoo clock is making.   I’m pretty sure I heard it snicker and cough something that sounds like “old fecker!”    Could be my hearing tho… it’s not as good as it once was.    But I’m with Oprah!  Celebrate your life.. its worth the praise and the celebration!     So when I found this “cheer” outfit with the number 42 on it… which happens to be the number of my life in years atm.   I said that will be perfect!   So please join with me in praise and celebration of my life so far!    Roll on more good years!
 So I’m doing a balancing act today of what do I want to do!    Do I want to go out and shop?    Do I want to indulge in some decadent dinner?    *stands between two chairs and wobbles *   Or maybe I’d just rather laze around and hope that I’ll get completely spoiled and pampered!   *could someone come and untie my shoes?*

Identity Crisis….

 “We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. We are all helpless. It just depends on the day.” ― Brad Meltzer

I’m having one of those days of…. who am I?    I have an inventory full of new things and I just can’t “feel”  any of them today.   What attitude do I want to express?   Am I mad?…. no.   Am I hurt?…. no.  Am I happy?…. not as happy as usual.   Am I sad? …. not sad.    Am I disappointed?…. perhaps…  I just don’t think there is an outfit in my overflowing folders that really screams “YOUR FEELING THIS!!!”   So today… I’m having an Identity Crisis as my dear friend Sun so rightly put it.   She’s always right you know!   Isn’t that frustrating lol.   Even my dress isn’t quite sure what it wants to be… I think it can be a bathing suit or a dress 🙂    So I think it was the right choice for my day.    I hope you enjoy me and my confused dress.

Even after deciding on this outfit.. I was still looking into the closet wondering if there was something that would scream out “WEAR ME INSTEAD”  “PICK ME PICK ME”!!!!

Then I thought…. Maybe if I get into the closet…. you know… become ONE with the wardrobe.   Maybe then… I’d figure out who I want to be today….. *climbs in and gets her hair tangled in the wire hangers*.   Mommy Dearest always told me these would cause me nothing but grief!

Hippie….

“Looking back, there is nothing wrong with that peace, love and equality that the hippies espoused. In many ways, we have regressed because they were into organic food, back to nature, make love not war, be good to all men, share and share alike – which is what many are talking about now.” ~Imelda Staunton
I never did really understand why hippies got such a bad rap.   I mean whats wrong with a little peace and love and wearing of flowers in the hair.   I think Imelda Staunton has a point.   Now it’s what we expect isn’t it?   Well I wouldn’t exactly profess to being a hippie or anything but when I found this dress it just gave off that feel to me.  So what does a girl with a “hippie” dress need… YES… a camper!   I really like this camper too.. I think it may become a permanent fixture at my SL home.   Who doesn’t like flashing chili peppers.. surely the neighbors won’t mind.   I got this lovely dress at the Chic2 Event.  They have the same design in many different colors.   Pick up a few!   Well enough of my harping right?   On with the picture viewing and the slurl jumping!
Professing my Peacefulness in:

Denim…..

“When women wear denim it (the derriere) must look elegant. It’s the second thing every woman looks at in the mirror, but it’s the first thing she cares about. She does that half twirl, her back arched and her head craned around. If the jeans are right, the experience is transforming, like putting on a magic cloak.”  ~ Ritu Kumar quotes

There is no way I can argue with that quote.    Everytime I pull on a pair of jeans the first check is the… errrr… Booty!   A good pair of jeans can do great things for the tail feather.    However not so good jeans can just put a knife straight into your wavering self-esteem.   And one hard learned lesson….. Never Never Never ask a man “Honey do these jeans make my ass look huge?”    I promise you … You don’t want the answer to this and they don’t want to be put in that position!   So save yourself the torment… and just twirl in the dressing room and admire your own badonkadonk!  (yes that really is a word!   Anyway… I found this cute little denim romper and thought it made a great compliment to my great GOS boots that I picked up at the May Famished event!   Gos.. *sigh* … they are the greatest!    Please enjoy the cozy comfortable look I’m sharing with you today!

Hair – /Wasabi Pills/ Claire Mesh Hair – Browns Pack

Skin – LAQ ~ Alva [Nougat]

Makeup – *BOOM* Love my eyes Liner and Mascara -thick
