Comfort Zones……

“Sometimes we have to step out of our comfort zones. We have to break the rules. And we have to discover the sensuality of fear. We need to face it, challenge it, dance with it.” ~ Kyra Davis

Comfortzone1

Comfort zones…We all have them.    We are comfortable in certain clothes… We are comfortable around certain friends.    We are comfortable in certain social situations.    If you are anything like me you surround and immerse yourself in all the comfortable things.    Kinda like an old comfy hoodie.    We zip it up and it feels like home to us.    Stepping out into something not comfortable is a scary thing.   I’ve been doing alot of thinking about comfort zones and testing the limits of mine lately.   I won’t bore you with all the gory details.    I’ll just share with you one of my comfortable outfits.    I picked up this over sized parka from Ronsem and felt it expressed my mood perfectly!.

Shelter…

Who will stay when the rain is fallin’
An’ won’t let it fall on you

I’ll see you through, I’ll cover you
With a love so deep and warm and true
I will be there

Honey I’ll be your shelter
I’ll be the one to take you through the night
Whenever you need shelter
I’ll make everything alright, make everything alright

~ Taylor Dayne – I’ll Be Your Shelter Lyrics | MetroLyrics

So…I found this awesome outfit and pose at the September round of FaMeshed.   This great outfit gave me that bad ass attitude feel that I like to pretend I have.    When in reality I’m just a big ole softy.   But shhhh no one needs to know these things.   I used my Spinal Cord pumps from [Diktator] and my beanie from Argrace to finish off my look.   The man sheltering me from the rain is mine.   He just simply isn’t for sale.   He is a fabulous shape creator and his shapes are a must see.    You can find his shapes on MP by <<clicking me>>. Or he will do custom shapes and you can IM – Dante Krell in world and let him make your shape dreams come true.

Peachy….

“You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.” 
― Dita Von Teese

Kissing….

“No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.” 
― Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

White3

Where are all the Rhett Butlers in this world?    Now that was a man who had the right idea about kissing a woman.  Ain’t nothing better than being kissed by a man who knows good and dang well how to get the job done.   *sighs*.   I’m doing a little wishing for kissing today.   My best friend of all time has a new pose store and he asked me to pose for a couple shot called “The Kiss”.   You can find the pose for sale here along with some other great pose packs… Ty’d and True Poses.   He asked for a mostly black or mostly white outfit and this little number is what I came up with.  I enjoyed the photo-op and the outfit.   I hope you do too.    xo

T-Shirts….

“I put on the Hank Williams and the Patsy Cline and the Rosemary Clooney on vinyl – I’m not trying to be some cool indie-rock person, I just love the way it sounds – and throw on a T-shirt and jeans. In Texas, we practically come out of the womb in jeans.” ~ Kelly Clarkson

Rose….

“I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalog: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt 

Rose1

When one thinks of romantic gestures giving that single red rose has to be among the top ten.   I love roses.   They smell so good and can conjure up many romantic and intimate thought processes.   I got a notice for some new releases at Sn@tch this week and this cute little dress with roses on it just got me all romantic feeling.   I enjoyed the smell of a sweet rose from a sweet friend while I showed off my new dress.   I accented my dress with new hair from Truth and some awesome new shoes from GOS Boutique.   The skin is new too from the August round of Collabor88.    SO many new things out there to be had.   Get shopping ladies!!!

Service with a Smile….

“Never trust a mechanic who drives new cars. They’re either charging too much money for their work, or they can’t keep an old car running – maybe both.”  ~  Patricia Briggs, Blood Bound

mechanic1

Since I was outfitted in my garage attire, I figured it was best to lay my hand on some tools and tend to some of the cars needing repair.   I got positioned on the creeper.   If you don’t know what a creeper is don’t feel bad I didn’t either.   I typed “rolling thing to lay on to fix cars”  and google fixed me right up.    So now that I’ve got my wrench and I’m sliding under the car on my creeper the notion dawns on me that I don’t really know what I’m looking at. But.. I got my hands greasy and I had fun rolling around on my creeper so the day wasn’t totally useless.   My garage outfit info can be found below.    The garage can be found…. here….
