Club Tropicana

Club Tropicana

Let me take you to the place
Where membership’s a smiling face,
Brush shoulders with the stars.
Where strangers take you by the hand,
And welcome you to wonderland –
From beneath their panamas…

[Chorus:]
Club Tropicana, drinks are free,
Fun and sunshine – there’s enough for everyone.
All that’s missing is the sea,
But don’t worry, you can suntan!

Castaways and Lovers meet,
Then kiss in Tropicana’s heat,
Watch the waves break on the bay.
Soft white sands, a blue lagoon,
Cocktail time, a summer’s tune,
A whole night’s holiday!

I’m a little scared of colour. I don’t wear a lot of it in RL, mostly red and black (as per my SL), but this dress from American Bazaar, and the colourful tattoo from Chemical Princess (both at WOH), has inspired me to get out in the tropics! They are both participating in the brand new Women Only Hunt – a large group of designers/creators will have half coconuts placed somewhere in their stores with some great gifts.

As soon as I saw this dress from MSS (Me Sew Sexy), I just had to have it! I contacted Jaylen about possibly getting a review copy…and now I have yet another great new sponsor, thanks Jaylen! I wanted to wear this outfit somewhere that I felt would be “out of place”, and having watched some of the chat in the SL Blogger Support group chat, I fell across Virtual Decay, what a great place for taking some dark/grungy style pics.

Dancing in the moonlight

Dancing in the moonlight

We get it almost every night
When that moon is big and bright
It’s a supernatural delight
Everybody’s dancing in the moonlightEverybody here is out of sight
They don’t bark and they don’t bite
They keep things loose they keep it tight
Everybody’s dancing in the moonlightDancing in the moonlight
Everybody’s feeling warm and bright
It’s such a fine and natural sight
Everybody’s dancing in the moonlight

Get outta my dreams, get into my car

Get outta my dreams...

Hey (hey) you (you), get into my car
Who me?
Yes you, get into my car
Wooooooooooooooh. Wah! Yeah!

Who’s that lady
Coming down the road
Who’s that lady
Who’s that woman
Walking through my door
What’s the score
I’ll be the sun
Shining on you
Hey Cinderella
Step in your shoe
I’ll be your non-stop lover
Get it while you can
Your non-stop miracle
I’m your man

Get outta my dreams
Get into my car
Get outta my dreams
Get in the back seat baby
Get into my car
Beep beep, yeah
Get outta my mind
Get into my life
Oooooooooh
Oh I said hey (Hey) you (You)
Get into my car

One of the great things about the Genre event is that I’ve gotten to visit some places, and meet some people, that I never would have if I’d stuck to my same old haunts.  While trying to find a tennis court, for yesterday’s pic, at the Jericho Hill Sports Complex, I messaged, the very friendly, Biller Longfall to see if he could help me out. Turns out he is the CEO of the Jericho Hill Racing Association (JHRA) and therefore had a track that I was able to use for today’s blog, so thanks Biller! Having spoken with him over the past couple of days, I’ve learnt that they are associated with a race to support RFL, and also that there is a new track, or two, weekly – sounds like a busy place if you ask me! If you ever want to check out the racing scene in SL, this would be a great place to come to.

Hit me with your best shot

Hit me with your best shot

Well you’re a real tough cookie with a long history
Of breaking little hearts like the one in me
That’s okay, let’s see how you do it
Put up you dukes, let’s get down to it

Hit me with your best shot
Why don’t you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

You come on with it, come on
You don’t fight fair
That’s okay, see if I care
Knock me down, it’s all in vain
I get right back on my feet again

Hit me with your best shot
Why don’t you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

Genre is sporting a fun theme this month. That was a pun…just in case you didn’t get it! It’s sport. All sorts of sport, in fact. I took the opportunity to throw on a cute tennis outfit and go on the hunt for a tennis court, and I found one, yay!

In the arms

*unfortunately have had to remove this pic, due to some items being copybotted*

Spend all your time waiting
for that second chance
for a break that would make it okay
there’s always some reason
to feel not good enough
and it’s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
oh beautiful release
memories seep from my veins
let me be empty
and weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight

in the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold hotel room
and the endlessness that you fear
you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
you’re in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here

~angel~sarah mclachlan~

I tend not to talk about “real life feelings” too much on here. This is a fantasy world, after all. Where people don’t need to know about the hurt you’ve gone through, or that some days your body just aches with sadness and it’s hard to even lift your head, let alone put a smile on it. But, there are those times, that you just need to put it out there. Talk about it. Let it be known that today was a tough day. Even if no one reads it, you’ve said it. It is freeing. Well, for me anyway. This little spot on serein was the perfect place just to contemplate this, and gather some thoughts.

All the single ladies

All the single ladies

All the single ladies,( all the single ladies)
All the single ladies, (all the single ladies)
All the single ladies, (all the single ladies)
All the single ladies Now put your hands up

Up in the club (club), we just broke up (up), I’m doing my own little thing.
Decided to dip (dip) and now you wanna trip (trip)
‘Cause another brother noticed me

I’m up on him, he up on me
Don’t pay him any attention
Just cried my tears, for three good years
You can’t get mad at me

‘Cause if you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it
If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it
Don’t be mad once you see that he want it
‘Cause if you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh x2

As soon as I got this fabulous bodysuit & harness from Chemical Princess, I knew that I had to do something like this! Trouble was finding a decent pose to bring it all to life, which was proving difficult, till I spoke to Ally at Something New, and she whipped up this great pose for me in no time flat – thanks Ally!

Things aren’t always what they seem

Things aren't always what they seem

I was engaged in one of my favourite SL hobbies today, profile perving, when something on a profile really struck a chord with me.  Perhaps because I’m still a bit naive, even after more than 15 years online, and believe that people are who they say they are (because I am), I’d never really thought about this valid point.  It basically said: people choose what they want you to know in here. Food for thought.

Things have changed a little, for me, over the past week. I’ve picked up a new sponsor and moved on from a couple as well. I’ll be forever grateful to both Method-moda and 7 Deadly S{k}ins for taking me on when I was fresh to blogging, and gave me a chance!! I’ve been lucky enough to have been chosen to blog for Rezology, and I have to say, if you haven’t checked out their hair yet, then do, it’s fabulous!  I’m wearing Manbait for this pic, which I figured was appropriate, since I’m in the new boat shed from DaD – get it? Boat, bait….
