Gazelle….

“Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up and knows that it must
run faster than the fastest Lion that day, or it will be killed and eaten.
Every morning in Africa, a Lion wakes up and knows that it must run
faster than the slowest Gazelle that day, or it will starve to death. It
doesn’t matter if you are a lion or a gazelle: when the sun comes up,
you’d better be running.” ~ Christopher McDougall

Gazelle1

This quote isn’t the best for us slow to get a move on sorts.   But I guess as in most things it’s the early bird that catches the worm .. or the swiftest lion that gets the gazelle.    So I guess it’s the best idea to hit the floor running!   That being said *chuckles*  today I’m sporting an outfit I put together from the latest round of The Boutique.  I know the event started over a week ago and I hope its still on but like someone said “slow and steady win the race”.   Ok well maybe not in Africa.   The Boutique is showing some great “safari”  type outfits.   I really put a dent in my wallet there.   I absolutely love  this necklace from +Half-Deer+.   There were 4 animals to choose from in the pack.   But I’m feeling like a gazelle today.   I chose this great top and skirt from Baiastice to show off some shapely legs.   And these great sandals from JD.   Which might not make me the fastest gazelle in the pack but damn it when I get eaten my feet are gonna be looking good *winks*.    I hope you enjoy my gazelle look as much as I do.    *blows kisses*

Gazelle CollageI’m not gonna list credits today….

I’m being a lazy gazelle.

Maybe I’ve got a death wish or just crave some wild biting.

Who knows…

But while you consider the possibilities….

Remember I’m..

Bad Things….

“When you came in the air went out.And every shadow filled up with doubt.I don’t know who you think you are,But before the night is through,I wanna do bad things with you.” ~ Lyrics – Jace Everett – Bad Things

Badness1

I know I know I know.  This is not a usual look for me.   But I fell in love with this CheerNo hair at the hair fair and I had to figure out some way to wear it.   So I thought an edgy, bad girl look just might do it.   A very different look I grant you but… hey I liked it.   I chose to wear some cool baggy jeans from Xplosion and this Wild open jacket that I picked up at The Boutique.   All in all I’d say it fit my edgy mood pretty well.   Enjoy!

Always remember…

Doing bad things “with”  someone is so much better than doing bad things “to”  someone.

Until next time…

Remember…

I’m not a bad girl… I’m a good girl who likes to do bad things.  *wink*

Horses…

“The horse, with beauty unsurpassed, strength immeasurable and grace unlike any other, still remains humble enough to carry a man upon his back.” ~  Amber Senti

Horses and Hats1

Well today I decided to cowgirl up!    The blame is going to have to rest on the shoulders of Truth for releasing this great cowboy hat/hair.    I have always loved a cute cowboy hat and always have had trouble getting them to fit just right with hair.   I had all but given up.    So needless to say I couldn’t be happier with this hat!    I paired it up with this cute tunic dress I picked up at this months round of Collabor88.   The dress comes in many different colors and designs and each have a long and short skirt version.   I think that the short version is supposed to be worn with pants or shorts.   But…  it worked great as a super short skirt!   The western boots are a long time favorite of mine from monso.   They have a lot of texture options to make your cowboy or cowgirl dreams come true.    Yeehaw!!!   I hope you enjoy the look as much as I do!    See you at the rodeo!

“In the steady gaze of the horse shines a silent eloquence that speaks of love and loyalty, strength and courage. It is the window that reveals to us how willing is his spirit, how generous his heart.”

We should all aspire to such greatness!

Hats off to horses!

Tips her hat and mounts her horse.

Happy Trails…

Cross….

“The hardest thing in life to learn is which bridge to cross and which to burn.” ~ David Russell 

Cross1

I don’t know if anyone else has trouble with this simple truth.   It is easy enough to recognize when situations need changed isn’t it?    The hard part is walking on and tossing the match behind you and letting that bridge catch fire.    I’m firmly planting my feet in the forward moving dirt.    If you see a blaze of fire ignite behind me…. ask no questions just turn and run the other way.    For my thoughts of bridge crossing and burning I chose some great items from *X*plosion and paired it with my favorite hair from ^;^CaTwA^;^.    I really love the loose baggy look of these pants.    They are just perfect for those casual and funky moods.    Enjoy!

One lesson learned…

“False friends are like our shadow, keeping close to us while we walk in the sunshine, but leaving us the instant we cross into the shade.” ~ Christian Nestell Bovee 

Make sure these friends are on the other side of the bridge when you burn it down.

Turn around and proceed forward…

Ever searching for the greener pastures…

I’m…

Charger….

 “I love fast cars, loud guns and classic rock ‘n’ roll, but I’d never do any of it in flats. I love me a nice, big uncomfortable pair of heels and some big hair! Maybe it’s a Southern thing, but I love dressing up. It’s everything I can do not to leave the house in a goddamn prom dress every day.” ~ Amber Heard

Charger1

For the last couple weeks I’ve been trying to nail down the last details of a great new hangout!   I know there are already tons of hangouts around SL and you are probably wondering, what could be special about this one. Well the setting is a muscle car garage with a little gathering area towards the back.   I have lots of plans.   Hopefully to include cool jam sessions with some great SL talent both Live artists and DJs.   But ultimately just a great place to chill and relax and visit with friends and loved ones.    I hope you’ll swing by and hang at the garage and don’t forget to bring friends!    I decided to strike some sexy poses in the garage to show off this sexy lingerie from DeeTalez.   Because nothing gets my motor racing faster than some sexy lingerie and the smell of motor oil.   Well maybe a few other things but… we’ll leave that for another time.    *Vrrrooommm*

Here’s hoping I didn’t scuff up the hood….

As sure as I’m sitting here I would never hear the end of it.

There is really one thing to say about muscle cars….

and Bobby Isaacs said it best…

“Nobody, but nobody, walks by without breaking his neck to take a second look.”

May we all inspire to such greatness!

Glamour….

“I don’t mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can’t be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won’t like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it’s based on femininity.”  ~  Marilyn Monroe

Glamour1

I spent a good part of my day today looking around in my “need to sort” folder.   Sadly I’ve let the chore of organizing pile up on me again.    No good reason for the pile up either.    I’ve had plenty of time to do the organizing.   I just haven’t done it.    Instead I picked through the ever-growing folder and pieced together an outfit that fit my feminine mood today.    My goal was feminine and classy and a little sexy.    I think I did pretty good meeting my goal.   I hope you enjoy my attempt at glamour.   *wink*
