Mix & Match

I love mixing and matching my makeup.  There’s so many talented makeup artists in SL that I can usually find a perfect combo with just about any of them! And then finding that ensemble that just brings it all to life makes it that much more fun! Today I matched the wonderful Slackgirl with Booty’s Beauty and damn if my lips (and eyes) don’t just jump off the page!

The combo went perfectly with two of Cynful’s newest releases and those really cute sunflower sandals from Pure Poison.  Since I was waiting for what felt like forever for the photographer to arrive I figured I’d snap a quick selfie and play around with it.  Not bad if I do say so myself. 😉

Sunday Best

2018-03-18_007.png

I remember watching Steel Magnolias and there’s this line where Anell (played by Daryl Hannah) got a bit fussy about what she was going to wear to church and Truvie (played by the incomparable Dolly Parton, STILL one of my faves) says to her, “God don’t care what you’re wearin’ long as you show up!”  That line always tickled me because there was a truth behind it.  God (or however you choose to address your higher power/guiding force) doesn’t care as long as you worship/praise in their name.

My mom would more than likely disagree with this one.  See, when I was little, my mom would send me off to church with my neighbors.  I would always get dressed in my Sunday best and she would give me a dollar to put in the offering plate, sometimes two. As I got older, I had stopped going for a long time until my mom at one point felt that I needed to go back and I didn’t have a choice in the matter. No, I wasn’t a juvenile delinquent or anything like that. I had just committed the cardinal sin of “losing my religion” before I was bound to the person I “gave my religion” to…legally. Anyway, at that age, my wardrobe was a bit more lax; but still respectful. Even if I had tried to wear jeans, she’d tell me no and change.  For her it wasn’t about showing out; moreso showing respect to your body and the house of the Lord. After all, if you couldn’t be respectful enough to dress up for your Savior, you must not have respect for self.

Lately, I’ve been missing my mom and little things she made me  do that I didn’t see the point of; one of which was showing up to church in your Sunday best.  So when I saw this dress, it made me think of that line and those moments when I would see all of the churchgoing ladies who get gussied up to simply go to church (or the grocery store or anywhere, really) and chuckled to myself as I put it on, getting ready for my Sunday.

It’s funny the little things are what I miss the most. Things that made no sense that , depending on the day and the level of noise in my head, make more sense now that I’m older.

Ain’t I a Woman?

“That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain’t I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain’t I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man – when I could get it – and bear the lash as well! And ain’t I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother’s grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain’t I a woman?” ~ Sojourner Truth

This passage sprang to mind on International Women’s Day and of course it made me call up my favorite little woman for a hangout session with her big sis.

While spending time w/ the little miss we were talking about Women’s Day and all the wonderful things that make being a woman so fabulous. She didn’t like that there are also responsibilities that come with being a woman so opted to stay 3 a liiiittle bit longer. I think she has the right idea. LOL So after helping her with her shoe, I took her over to the studio and we had a grand time taking piccies.

Great way to celebrate Women’s day with my favorite little woman.

Shadowboxers

Ok.  I’m trying to get my cardio up so I can keep up w/ the very energetic kids I teach over at LPA!  Good thing my boy is here to help me train!

Shadowboxers

He’s got me following his every step with this shadowboxing workout. Thankfully this is just for cardio.  Well…maybe beat up on a griefer or two if they try to hurt the babies. I know I won’t be taking on Apollo Creed anytime soon though. LOL We’ll see!
