Teddy Bear Day

Today is Teddy Bear Day or at least that is what some special day calendar thing told me. I had a hard time narrowing down which teddy bear themed idea I wanted to go with for my photo. As you can see I have decided to try and hide in plain sight among the other teddy bears. I will just have to save the other ideas for another time.

Miss Mouse

Whenever I head to Disney World I try to dress with a character in mind. It may be super vague to anyone who sees me, but at least I know who I am trying to channel. Luckily in SL I don’t have to worry about wandering the park in heels all day, something you couldn’t pay me enough to do IRL. If you couldn’t guess by my look I am channeling my inner Minnie Mouse. Now I would not suggest wearing long sleeves in FL in the middle of summer, especially there as there is no ocean breeze so it gets so grossly hot.

A whole lotta nope

Yes I am back yet again. It seems like just when I start to get back to things something comes up and knocks me back a few steps. This time it was Covid. I got walloped hard by it and am still waiting to get my sense of taste back. For the record not being able to taste things is the worst diet trick ever! And if that wasn’t enough I had house guests right afterwards! So right now I am feeling like answering every request for my time with a resounding “Nope!”

As you can see from my top I am all about the nope right now. That and sloths are cool.

Cooling Off

Somedays you just need to toss yourself into a kiddie pool, clothes and all! It’s one of those hot and humid days when all you want to do is cool down, no matter what it takes. I do not have a pool of my own in RL, but there is one in my complex but outside is where the sun lives and we have a love/hate relationship. I love the sun, it makes me happy, the sun on the other hand hates me with a burning passion (that is a fancy way of saying that I burn easily)

Normally I am not a rose all day kind of girl, but in the heat of the summer I will drink just about anything as long as it’s cold. And while it may not be a drink per se, I will also eat boozy popsicles, like the blueberry-grapefruit-gin one I got from a local food truck/ice cream truck recently. As an asides I do not recommend eating a boozy popsicle on an empty stomach unless you want a quick, cool buzz. If you hadn’t guessed I am finally home from my epic adventure and will hopefully be back to posting regularly now. Have a wonderful day my loves ♥

I Will Be Back…Soon

Just to let my readers know that I will be gone from the blog for another month or so. Due to real life circumstances I have been away from home. If you read my post on why I relay you will have a good idea as to where I am and what I am doing. To say that full time caregivers aren’t given enough credit would be an understatement! I am glad my personal life allows me this time to be here for my parents and help them through this, along with my siblings. Hopefully things will resume as usual in a month or so, but if not please be patient with me. And for those of you who are the solo caregivers to an ailing family member or friend, You are amazing and doing a fabulous job!

Silent Reflection

I have been doing a lot of thinking during this Fantasy Faire and it’s not just because of the quest for a change (more coming on that in another post). I have been spending the days as one of the caregivers (okay so I am a glorified babysitter at the moment) to my father who is currently battling cancer. And it is a terrible thing for anyone to have to do. But that is why we relay and why the Faire is important, because not everyone has the ability to travel and help family in a time of need.

I will stop going on about all that, because this outfit is beautiful and should be the star of this post. I think I found the perfect spot on one of the Faire regions for my photos. It is gorgeous and glowing, oh and don’t forget magical. I mean there are waterfalls and unicorns! I am going to head off now. I have more photos to take and posts to write!

Why I Relay at Fantasy Faire

This year when Fantasy Faire opened I was on the road traveling from my home to my parents home. The reason for my travel is related to the purpose of Fantasy Faire and that is to raise money in the fight against cancer. Below you will find the reason for why I relay and who I relay for this year and all the years to come.

Every year as part of the Fantasy Faire people are asked why the relay and every year I skip this part. To be honest it’s usually because I feel like my reasons are lame, donating to charity makes me feel good. I like feeling like a good and nice human being.

This is different. This year I have a reason to relay, or rather a person to relay for. Earlier this year my greatest supporter in life, my dad, was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I always thought of my dad as some sort of immortal superhero. Never did I think that after all he has been and done would cancer be the thing to take him from us. He served in the military during Vietnam, was a volunteer EMT, worked for our hometown’s historical society and a whole lot of other good works. He’s one of those people who you think should be allowed to pass of old age peacefully in their sleep. While I write this he is still with us, but no one really knows how much longer that will be for. I know that for me personally the world will seem a little dimmer when his light is gone from it.

In fact, I am currently living out of a hotel just a few minutes away from my parents’ house. Prior to the fair starting I made the decision, with my family, to drive the 17 hours to be with my parents and to help and support them in any way I can. Lately it seems that help is to run and get my dad a chocolate milkshake which is one of the only things he will eat right now. The whispered conversations between my mom, my sister and I are ones I never thought I would ever have, and no one should ever have to have. Seeing someone you love so much be beaten down by this malevolent force is something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. So, if you, like myself and many others, want to help put an end to this terrible monster, then please visit the Faire and shop or even just toss some lindens into one of the donation kiosks. Seriously even if it’s just one linden those add up fast when thousands of people do it.

That being said, this year and every year after I will relay for my dad, my hero, and the man who has always loved me no matter what mistakes I have made.

Celebrating

So this is what happens when two friends get high together, silly photos and fun ensue. I mean to be fair it was already 4/20 for one of us and it wasn’t me. Though by the time we parted it was for both of us, so there is that. Now I know there are some out there that from on the use of jazz cabbage, but no one needs that kind of negativity in their life. Just say no to Captain Buzzkill. All kidding aside I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful day whether you blaze up or not.

And because I am vain here is a picture of my outfit and appropriate accessories.

Research is hard work

I actually do love doing research on different subjects, sadly that was not the case when I was in school and could have really used the drive. Last week there was no research being done, mostly due to the fact that my entire household was hit with the ick. But that has nothing to do with my look today. I took a trip to The Engine Room and found myself some goodies! I am not too knowledgeable in the whole steampunk aesthetic, but I did a little research and cobbled together this look.

I make a pretty cute little research assistant don’t you think? Maybe I need more gears and steam pipes and things for a fuller steampunk look, but like I said it’s not something I am very well versed in. I guess I should do some more research into it. Oh and get ready for a lot more fantastical looks as my favorite event of the year is approaching quickly, but more on that later!
