I do. Do you?

It’s safe to say we can all agree marriage is a commitment that goes beyond a typical relationship, even long term common wealth relationships. I just realized filing taxes as a married middle class couple sucks. I miss 2016 tax filing time. Anyway, married couples do have something our common wealth counterparts do not. Weddings!

I do

Chop Zuey’s Sub Umbra Floreo Bridal is the perfect piece to add that last and perfect final touch to any wedding gown.

Today is the day.jpg

If you’re going to commit yourself to filing married, you might as well start it off in style, ya know? No second thoughts. It’s too late!

Overthrow the effigy

Divorce only works when one stops loving his or her partner in marriage. Plus, I joke. I’d much rather have my hubby than tax perks (See RL husband? I love you so much I wrote about you in my SL blog. Bonus points?)

From here to eternity

So, that’s my advice for the day. I also advise you to visit Designer Showcase and Pose Fair as soon as possible because April is going to end. We won’t see another April until next year. Weird when one thinks about it that way, eh? Speaking of Pose Fair, I thought you should know. Corpus’s Editorial poses have attitude and emotion. Manifeste is one of my oldest favorites when it comes to pose makers. They also mix fashion, emotion, and attitude. Looks like they are meant to be. 😉

“Worldly comfort is an illusion.”

Dear sister:

I hate to break it to you, but there is usually a bigger picture. It goes beyond he said she said scenarios too. It’s literally opening up one’s perspective and it ain’t always fun.

Things are not what they seem to be

Trust me. If things seem wrong or dangerous, they probably are. Broaden your scope.

The first appearance deceives many

Once you broaden your scope, you’ll see the bullshit for what it is because “worldly comfort is an illusion” (Mirabai) in your particular case. Now once you do, it’s your turn.

And I leave behind this hurricane of fucking lies

It’s your turn to walk away from what deceived you in the first place. Emotional wars are exhausting, and sadly so many, including me, fight for the wrong reasons. You probably won’t read this. One, you don’t have a blog and two, you probably forgot about my grown up virtual Barbie doll games/online journal. If you do, know I love you and I will be there when and if you need help walking away.

Love Always,

Your Sister

A poor heart aflame: Don’t wish it away.

Instead, “Live for each second without hesitation.” I tend to revert to timeless classic songs when I try to make sense of life. You know? Songs never let me down. The songs we tend to hold onto or remember in trying times are an unspoken heart around our neck.

but-more-than-ever

Or on our wrists, ears, and sleeves, so I say drown in hearts. Valentine’s Day has passed, but the heart is a symbol of love and life. Mostly life. The brain may have more to do with the emotion we call love, but let’s not go there. Okay? Let’s just drown in hearts. ♥

Speaking of hearts and love, Chop Zuey’s “A Poor Heart Aflame” is a must have for all romantics. It’s a mix and mash to suit any occasion with several heart pendants, silver or gold chains, and pearls. Drive your color choices with the Hud. The matching heart earrings and bracelets complete the love.

Freedom 17: Gotta have Faith

At this moment, I’m wearing Chop Zuey’s “Dream of the Rood.” Readers, sometimes life has to suck before it gets good, and that’s what “Dream of the Rood” means to me, but it’s okay. At the end of the day, we can triumph over our demons. I’m preaching now.

begin-again

Last year, I pinched a George Michael and Elton John collaboration for my blog’s inspiration, so hearing George Michael died left me a little weepy.

In retrospect, what inspires us is a telling moment because it identifies the way we felt for but a moment.

With 2017 about to roll in and my piece o’ land. in an odd place, I have no choice but to revert to my old ways. Have faith in freedom. Cheers!  🍷

“Light of a Silhouette, [s]he’s insubordinate.”

sublimal-mind-trump-americaI know many people are sick of the election and now that it’s over, I cannot deny it. The results devastated me. In fact, I haven’t been able to do much until now. Well, I have gone to work and all, but I mean my creative juices were shot because I felt as though  I was lost. If I ever told anyone to just accept the results and move on, I’m sorry that I didn’t realize how you felt until now. Indeed, it super sucks! in-a-land-of-make-believeSo with the current agenda, I felt as though I was missing out on current events because I wasn’t an active Twitter user, so I decided to really understand Twitter after the results. I have concluded it pisses me off. It’s never been a social platform that was geared to me because of the character limit. The limit doesn’t piss me off, though. It’s the amount of bullshit, vitriol, and what the fuck moments  that spread like wildfires. shes-a-rebelAnd it pisses me off because it totally sucked me in. Not only on Twitter but chiming in on random articles that spoke to me. While me getting sucked in isn’t anyone’s fault but my own, it’s fucked up because I want to believe I can change it. Although, I did have a nice Twitter conversation with an opposite perspective. i-beg-to-dream-and-differ-from-the-hollow-liesShe popped my Twitter argument cherry. I appreciated that exchange because it felt like a genuine conversation. She was (is) an undercover Chop Zuey Moksha pearl. Did it convince me to use Twitter as the ultimate outlet for my real self? Uh, no. It’s too fucking weird out there right now. I think?dont-wanna-be-an-american-idiotMaybe it always was, and I was just naive. Maybe it isn’t, and it’s just the regular aftermath but in an online, thus all over the place, social networking environment. Regardless of what it is, I had to come back to my safe place. Silver lining? It’s selfish, so sorry bout that! I can safely say that I’m still a #nastywoman. Where that ideology takes me, well, “coming at you on the count of one two (one, two, three, four).” 😉

How to learn from experience:”All [he] had to do was stay…”

This is a continuation of an earlier post.  My boss walked into my office in the middle of a Taylor Swift binge, so I shared why I appreciate her lyrics. I’m not sure he bought it, but I let him know that some of my favorite Swift songs have described some of my deepest and painful heartbreaks. Suddenly, I remembered heartbreak may be a natural occurrence.

how-to-learn-from-experience

In an earlier blog, I wanted to save my younger co-workers from heartbreak, but that’s not possible. They need it. I had it, and my breakups were tragic at the time.  Fast forward > I ended up with my hubby aka love of my life. Really, I think I needed to experience love lost because I don’t think it would have worked had I met my hubby earlier.

people-like-me-are-gone-forever-when-you-say-goodbye

In a breakup, the tunnel seems bleak, but there really is light at the end. Of course, we can’t see it until we reach the end.

The inspiration for this post was Swift’s song “All you had to do was stay.” It reminds me of my first heartbreak. We’ll call him AB. He was the start of my dark relationship tunnel and the only one who wanted to get back together after we broke up. Too much had happened in the meantime such as “picking up the pieces of the mess [he] made” and all I could think of was “but not like this.” Like I said…it seems dark, but keep moving. 😉

Sorry hubby. I’m in love with San Guerlian, but don’t worry. It’s a platonic love. Chop Zuey Couture Jewelry is a beautiful addition to Designer Showcase’s August round, and Belle Roussel has a very special edition of the San Guerlian Cameo Set available just for you.
