The Glam Life

I haven’t been at all inspired to do any photography the last couple of months. RL has been rather busy with all my energies have been focused on family and house remodeling.

But I love vintage vibes and with this round of Rewind focused on the 1940’s I had to stop by and pick up a few things for a picture. I also got to collaborate with the lovely blogger/vlogger Cassie Middles on a pin-up calendar she’s working on. I’m only one of several ladies who are a part of this project and I can’t wait to see the finished product! I’ll post it here when it’s finished. In the meantime, I was actually really excited to do another picture, the collab getting my creative juices flowing again. Right in time for me to go out of town for Thanksgiving. (This is so typical of my life lol.)

Anyway, I hope you like the picture and enjoy your holiday! Muahs!

I’m going to be gushy for a moment so please bear with me.

The husband and I just celebrated our first wedding anniversary this weekend.

We met here in SL 8 1/2 years ago and quickly became good friends. Friendship eventually blossomed into love and we met RL nearly a year later.

Last August we finally tied the knot and despite spending the last half of our reception in the basement during a massive storm, it was a fantastic day. If rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck, what are tornadoes considered? Lol.

I can truly say that while it’s been a hell of a ride, it’s worth every minute of it, ups downs, and even the moments I want to beat him over the head. He is my love, my best friend, a gigantic dork and favorite pain in the ass. I’m so excited to see what the future brings for us – hopefully without any more tornadoes!

Rebel without a clue

Rebel without a clue

I’ve never shopped Rewind before but this theme brought back so many fun memories I had to stop in and buy a few things.  I had a crush on a boy who was really into punk rock and in my lame and desperate attempts to

I went through a punk phase in late in high school and on into my early days in college as well. I’d tell you how much my parents just LOVED that but that would be a lie. lol. There was a cute boy I had a major crush on who was really into punk rock and in my lame attempts to impress him and get his attention, I delved into the world on punk. (Shh! Don’t judge me I was only 17!) It was little bits here and there. I bought a compilation CD and a studded belt at Hot Topic, then a cuff and a plaid skirt with ripped fishnets. I thought I was hot chit – mostly due to the newfound attention from my classmates and because I stood out from what I called the “Abercrombie Barbies” in my school. Like I said, it was lame. lol.

And while 17-year-old me would have been thrilled to have him fall madly in love with my new fashion sense and music knowledge, and we would date and maybe marry and have little rocker babies, after one very awkward date, I realized we were better off as friends.

Somewhere along the line, probably in college, I found a love for punk and hard rock music and my own sense of style that didn’t necessarily need a studded belt to be unique. Gotta love those little life lessons right?

This is what summer dreams are made of

This is what summer dreams are made of

I haven’t posted in awhile. We’ve been so busy since we got back from vacation, and when I’m not exhausted, I’m too hot to even think about getting on the computer. It’s now a requirement that the next house has central A/C. But summer is coming to a close and the hubbers has been kind enough to set me up on his PC so that when it’s super hot I can at least sit in front of the window unit.

Enough of my rambling and ONTO THE PICTURE! Summer is my favorite season. Autumn comes in at a close second followed by winter and spring.

I grew up near Lake Michigan, so for me, summer means a lot of time at the beach with family. It’s the sunshine and the sand. Splashing in the waves. Wrapping yourself in gigantic towels and eating fresh blueberries, watermelon, or ice cream. Funny tan lines, beach grass crafts, bonfires with s’mores and falling asleep to the crashing of waves on the sand. All the windows were open unless it was raining and the A/C was barely ever touched. Most days the breeze or the wind coming off the lake was enough to keep you cool.

And now I live out East, where the humidity is higher and there are no nice lake breezes. And what passes for beach time out here is the Atlantic shore. Which….eww. (Sorry if you’re a fan of the shore but I don’t get it.) It’s a 2-hour drive – which is actually more like 3-5 with all the traffic unless you leave at the crack of dawn. Now the boardwalk is fun, I love the shops and restaurants and the rides. But then you get to the beach and have to pick your way across what feels like a mile of hot sand, around medical waste and trash is not particularly appealing. It’s not really even worth swimming. I don’t mind the ocean but up here we do not have the nice clean, blue waters of Florida and the Caribbean. Run in, cool off, and usually I come out feeling grosser than before I went in. I’ll take a polite pass.
