{ Waiting Game }

I’m thinking it over
The way you make me feel all sexy but it’s causing me shame
I wanna lean on your shoulder
I wish I was in love but I don’t wanna cause any pain
And if I’m feeling like I’m even, we’ve got nothing to gain

What if I never even see you ’cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

Waiting-DUO-1_FINAL

Baby I’m thinking it over
What if the way we started made it something cursed from the start
What if it only gets colder
Would you still wrap me up and tell me that you think this was smart
‘Cause lately I’ve been scared of even thinking ’bout where we are

What if I never even see you ’cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

What if I never even see you ’cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

{ I wasn’t always a monster } The Secret Affair ends TODAY!

I wanted to show off so much more from this round of The Secret Affair as I do love me some greek mythology but alas, time got away from me.  The Fates decided 1st Life was going to run me ragged and make my week Hades on earth.  But I’m sneaking back to show off one last styling worthy of Gods and Goddesses!  Beware looking too closely into those hypnotic glowing eyes, you may find yourself stoned..uh.. i mean, stunned by her beauty. 😉

{ Whips and chains excite me }

Love may be in the air this time of year but sexual fetishes are also dominating in and out of closed doors.  Maybe it’s the long-awaited “50 Shades of Grey” movie that’s hit theaters or that under all the romance of Valentine’s Day, there’s a darker deeper desire begging to be unleashed.

Second Life has never been short on kinky fun. And although I’m definitely switching it up from what I’m accustomed to, I’ll admit that playing the domme for artistic purposes gave me a bit of that taboo naughty pleasure feeling. I’ll blame it on the array of sexy creations available at various events gridwide right now:  ROMP’s latest round “Fresh” offers plenty of options for the kinky enthusiast — the event continues for a couple more days, until Feb 19th;  sadly one sultry event, Burlesque, has already finished up before I could get this photo posted, but all items should be available in their respective stores; The Liaison Collaborative just opened on the 15th with it’s latest theme of “Leather and Lace”, inspiring sweet elegance but also fulfilling some darker fantasies — this round is more abbreviated than previous rounds so be sure to get on over to check it out before it ends on Feb 28th.

It’s the best day… It’s the worst day.  Yep.. it’s my birthday.  In RL that is, and I’ve gotten to that point where each year is more bittersweet than the last.  Where the number betrays me because my mind still tells me I’m 25 yet standing next to my growing kids in a grocery store gives me away.  (“Oh you mean those kids? No, they’re not mine. haha!”) I’ve actually NOT gotten carded buying alcohol *gasp* these days.  And hell yes, I’m offended!  D:  So yup, I’m gonna pout and throw myself a little birthday pity party via my photos today.  😛

And it’s ok, you can poke fun at me, the ol’ lady who just turned 38, too! 😉 ❤

{ Lost Love’s Letters }

Some things you can’t go back to, some things need left alone
Don’t mess with a memories of a life passed on
Oh the tumbling reservations at the heart of my mistakes
Oh some things you can’t go back to cause you let them slip away

I don’t wanna be a witness to a path that’s overgrown
I don’t wanna see this house not be a home
‘Cause time has taken toll on what we couldn’t see
No I don’t wanna be a witness to the end of you and me

How am I gonna make each moment better than the last
How am I gonna make it better if I can’t go back

Oh the tumbling reservations at the heart of my mistakes
Oh some things you can’t go back to cause you let them slip away
Oh some things you can’t go back to

Bordello_FINAL

I could keep apologizing for being sick and busy and busy and sick…but I’m starting to sound like a broken record.  Finally catching up on a few blogposts and did this photo at the tail end of Shoetopia before it closed because well… Gos Boutique!  Need I say more?  Always a favorite of mine and was so thrilled to see his sexy new release of Bordello style heels called “Dita” with gorgeous corset detailing along the back wedge.  I couldn’t resist going for the full monty and getting sexified with this one, but instead of me baring it all (because apparently it has been pointed out to me that I have been baring it all so frequently lately 😛 ) I decided to let my man prop be the eye candy.  But only when you can stop looking at the shoes long enough to see what’s going on.

Candy-Full_FINAL

If there’s one thing I love about The Arcade, there’s usually never a shortage of absolutely delicious foodie things!  This year was no exception with PILOT‘s very inspiring Candy Bar and Milk & Cookies Bar sets!  Add to that, digging through my inventory and finding many past arcade items such as the Pastry Mania set from Tres Blah, and I knew there was a Sweet Shoppe theme about to happen.  So one mini-city build later, here we are in my very own Candy-Crush-worthy scene surrounded by all the sugary goodness one could hope for.  And did I mention lots of PINK??? I’m a girl who loves pink and I don’t care who knows it.  Plus all this gave me an excuse to go buy the super sweet Sunday tee over at DRIFT which was perfect for my yummy pic.  Have I made you hungry yet with all my food references? Here, Eat a Cupcake! 😀

Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I have some frosting on my lips to clean up.  *blushes*

MorningCoffee-full_FINAL

 Life has had me pretty busy lately… all work and no play can make Trin a dull girl and we can’t be having that.  So sometimes it’s good to just stop, take a deep breath, and de-stress.  Anyone that knows me knows that I have an affinity to coffee (that’s a fancy way of saying, I love it… a lot 😛 ) and if I don’t get my morning coffee life can be pretty rough.  It’s therapeutic really.  So I think we can all agree, I should not be denied that simple pleasure.

MorningCoffee-close_FINAL

I’m also gonna throw out a few other tidbits about me as well, and why I chose this particular scene/theme… I am a girly girl, I love pink, and I love pajamas.  So there, I said it.  The cute new PJs are from Blacklace and naturally I would snag my favorite color. Perfect for lazing about in the early hours when procrastinating the day’s to-do list.  That’s something I’m oh-so good at.

MorningCoffee-vanity_FINAL

I went ahead and took the liberty to girly up this beautiful mesh house by Barnesworth Anubis and what better way to do that was to add the ultra feminine vanity set from Tres Blah at the Arcade!  This was the ONLY collection I got the complete set of at the Arcade and I’m so excited about it.  So detailed and well thought out.

 MorningCoffee-room_FINAL

Now if you don’t mind, I might just snuggle back under those comfy covers, daydream and snooze a while longer… The work is gonna have to wait for now.

{ Like a Virgin } My 10 SL Firsts Meme

 Retro80s-full_FINAL

This is a blog about firsts and it’s fitting that this is actually the very *first* blog meme I’ve participated in as well (So thank you very much Strawberry Singh for being my First)!  I was rather stoked that it coincided with some rather cool 80s throwback charm jewelry by (Yummy) released at Collabor88 this round  that totally inspired me to do a full on set from the era of my youth.  I hope those of you that grew up in the 80s can appreciate the nostalgia going on in here.  I fully admit to having far too much fun putting it all together and was amazed at all the awesome retro stuff out there in SL (in mesh even!). I could have totally kept going but resisted on account of it turning out to look like a scene out of “Hoarders” 1980 style.

Retro80s-close_FINAL

And so without further ado… Let’s go back in time to my virginly days in SL and I’ll tell you a little about my 1st experiences.  No judging allowed! LOL

  1. First SL Friend: Pixie, I met her on Help Island my first day in SL and we went through all the tutorials together and then ventured into the great unknown of the metaverse.  We stayed friends for a few years even through many weddings and lots of drama, but ultimately we grew apart.
  2. First SL Kiss: Pixie LOL (I was experimenting!! and welp, someone had to hop on those poseballs with me!)
  3. First SLex time/place/partner: uh… yeah I think I will refer to question #2. and it was on a piano. 😛
  4. First SL Partner/Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Wife/Husband: I have only ever had one partner in SL and his name is Bio Flow.  I met him my first month in SL at Sweethearts Jazz Club and when I found out he was Aussie, I might’ve got a wee bit excited thinking about his accent.  But we were together in SL for 3.5 years (which is like 35 years in SL) and did the whole big wedding thing, and even a vow renewal after some rocky times.
  5. First SL Job: My first official job which I usually dismiss was as a store model for Damage Clothing… I basically stood on some sexy pose stand wearing their clothes and talking to people that came in the store.  It was crap for money and didn’t last long.  I moved onto being a Hostess at Sweethearts and then to being a Photographer.
  6. First SL Creation: A pillow.  And I remember it was fugly but functional. I even learned how to add a sit script in it.  I was so proud of myself.
  7. First Encounter with a Linden: I believe it was summer of 2008 while working at Sweethearts, but I don’t remember which Linden it was that popped over.  Nor did I really understand who they were… I think I actually believed all the Lindens were related at first.  LOL like this whole family is running SL.  Yes, I’m a dork.
  8. First Encounter with a SLebrity: omgosh I really don’t even know on this one, I’ve come in to contact with quite a few designers or creators but probably didn’t realize at the time even.  I think it was probably Agnes Finney of My Precious because I won a photo contest for her store back in January 2009 and they held a party to celebrate the winners.  I remember trying to be all professional and not act like a noob fangirl…. but in the end, I don’t necessarily buy into the SLebrity thing.  We’re all just people behind a computer.  I do however have great respect and admiration for the talents of many people in SL.
  9. First SL Sim you fell in love with: Hmm… It’s a toss up between The SL Botanical Gardens and Inspire Space Park.  I frequented many gardens in my initial days after discovering that SL wasn’t just a series of nude beaches, this one always had lots of different nooks and things to explore and I always found it a fun, peaceful retreat.  It was a friend that introduced me to Inspire and I was immediately in awe.  I mean, how cool is it when you can float through space watching the planets pass by while listening to trippy music like some psychedelic Disney ride in Tomorrowland!!
  10. First SL Blog Post: Well considering I’m new to blogging, it wasn’t that long ago really. March 21st, 2013 was my first official day as a blogger and my post was about New Beginnings.  Nothing out of the ordinary except my attempt at not overly editing photos as I’m accustomed to doing.  And I’m still as excited about doing it as I was then.

Well thanks for reading… I totally want to go roller skating now.
