Making our own definitions of "cute".

Ladies, free your breasts for 24 hours by removing those dreadful (but at times oh-so-helpful) bras. Our perkiness should not be hidden. It is time that the world see what we were blessed with. Your breasts might be colossal, adorable, miniature, full, jiggly, fancy, sensitive, glistening, bouncy, smooth, tender, still blossoming, rosy, plump, fun, silky, Jello-like, fierce, jolly, nice, naughty, cuddly… But the most used word to describe your breasts on October 13th should be FREE! Gentlemen, you can participate too! Your job will be to support us ladies by rocking something purple.  It can be a purple tie, purple boxers, or purple socks.  If it is purple, it supports us. (Your support means quite a lot to us…) If wearing a bra on this day is absolutely necessary, you can definitely show your support by wearing something purple.

How does this relate to Living the Cute Life?  Well, nothing is cuter than taking care of your body and doing self exams.  Google how to do it, talk to your doctor, talk to your friends and take care of your girls, it can save your life!

For the first few months I was in Second Life, I never purchased anything.  Why?  I was cheap, I was stubborn and I refused to buy Lindens.  I became an expert in collecting freebies, clicking MM boards and group gifts.  Eventually, I saw an outfit I just had to have, there were no other options except for me Lindens.

Out came the credit card, and I made a purchase of…$20 worth of Lindens.  The store that received my first purchase as none other than Brat!  I loved and still love Brat! and I tend to pop by on a regular basis.  The clothing that is put out really does exemplify for me Living the Cute Life.

When I sat down to write this post, I looked through my over bloated inventory and realized, I own quite a bit of Brat! clothing.  Probably far more than any one person should, but that’s alright, I love clothes *giggles*.  The outfit I am showing here comes from the Fall 2012 Twisted Hunt and I find it to be incredibly cute.  I was dumped into a Safe Hub this morning while taking the pictures and I received two IM’s about the outfit, both very complimentary.  I guess maybe it’s not just me who thinks Brat! clothing is a must for anyone who wants to show off their cuteness!

Sometimes an outfit can lift our spirits.  Sometimes it’s the colour, sometimes it’s the fit, and sometimes it’s just because the outfit makes us feel cute or sexy.

When I’m feeling blue, I generally try to find something incredibly girlie girl.  Maybe something so incredibly cute, that it causes your teeth to rot out.  Of course, that cute quotient can also include an element of sex appeal as well.

Sliding into just the perfect outfit and feeling good about how you look might not solve all of your problems, but a lift in spirits always helps.

I’m curious if this helps anyone else.  What does a cutie due when they feel blue?  What do you do when you feel blue?  Does a cute outfit and feeling good about how you look help?

Or is the best medicine a tub of ice cream, a sappy movie and some kleenex?  Although all of those things are great, we’re talking about Living the Cute Life, so share your secrets!

For those of living in the northern part of the United States, autumn has arrived. The nights are getting cooler and longer and the leaves are starting to change colors. Since it’s my favorite season, I wanted to go out and take some pictures of the pretty foliage at the local park. Uh oh, it looks like it’s going to rain. I hope I can get some pictures in before the storm sets in but maybe I should take my umbrella just in case. A girl can never be too careful you know!

As I wander down the path, I start to feel the drip drop of a light rain falling on my head. Guess it’s time to open up my umbrella so I stay dry! I mean, I don’t want to ruin my hair, do I? Oh well, I don’t think I’ll be taking many pictures today but maybe I can enjoy short walk. The rain isn’t really that bad, just a slight drizzle and the cool autumn breeze feels so good on my cheeks.

*Peeks out from my dry but slight shelter from the storm and frowns slightly* Oh no, it looks like this rain is picking up. I better hurry and get home before I really get drenched. Luckily, I didn’t wander too far away and my house is right around this corner because the wind is really starting to blow. Sheew! I think I made it but oops, it looks like in my hurry I dropped my camera. Oh well, guess this just gives me an excuse to go shopping for a new one. *Giggles*

The other day, someone asked on Plurk what we wanted to be as kids.  My immediate answer(s) were simply.

1) A Diplomat – The thought of working in an embassy in some exotic location has always been a desire of mine.  Ok, maybe not so much exotic to some, but my dream was always to work in an embassy somewhere in Eastern Europe or Russia.  I’ve had this desire since I was a little girl and it still holds true today.  So much so that I spent nearly a decade studying to do so.  Ironic considering I’m about as far from working in the diplomatic service as I am to being a brain surgeon.

2) A Photo Journalist – I’ve always had a passion for photography, and I loved the idea of covering developments across the world with my camera.  I used to carry my camera around with me everywhere I went, capturing life events, tragedies and anything that interested me.  As I grew up and began to travel, it wasn’t uncommon for me to come home with 100 rolls of film (this was far before digital cameras) and I’d spend weeks developing them in the dark room, or hundreds of dollars getting them developed.  This dream was squashed pretty fast when I was hurt just out of high school in a car accident and realized I’d never be able to keep up with the demands of the job.

3) A Journalist/Writer – I’ve always loved to write.  One of the first school assignments I can remember was to write an extended story about pirates.  It was only supposed to be a few pages long, but I stayed up all night, perfecting my 35 page story to give to my teacher the next morning.  Unfortunately for me, my teacher was an evil witch and complained to my parents about my precociousness.  Fortunately, this didn’t hamper my love of writing.  When I entered University, I was fully prepared to enter into Journalism, but seeing the market for Journalists was slowly dying (Digital media of course) I decided down a different path (preparing myself to be a diplomat), but I’ve retained my love of writing and I do it for pleasure as well as for work.  I still have stories in my head and written in 50 notebooks that someday I might sit and put pen to paper, or in the modern age, fingers to keyboard.

What does this have to do with being cute?  Well, simply put, I think having dreams, ambition and a head on your shoulders is extremely cute.  Regardless if it’s SL or RL, those people who are the cutest always those with intellect and strive to follow their gypsy souls.
