August 2017

Fading Like A Flower

In a time where the sun descends alone 
I ran a long long way from home 
To find a heart that’s made of stone 

I will try, I just need a little time 
To get your face right out of my mind 
To see the world through different eyes 

Every time I see you oh I try to hide away 
But when we meet it seems I can’t let go 
Every time you leave the room I feel I’m fading like a flower 

Listen

The sun is shining today here in England, and it’s a public holiday here today too, bonus! So I thought I’d pop on and do a little post. Whilst I was sitting in the sun at Luanes World, taking the pictures, I was approached by a fellow photographer! His name was Roxi Martinek and he has a pretty Flickr page, you can take a look HERE. It’s always nice to meet a fellow photographer, and he must have been inspired, because he took a couple of pictures of me! You can see them here and here .  I have to admit to being a little bit flattered, It’s always an honour to be on someone else’s flickr page! Thanks Roxi!

Dandelion Edit 3

This beautiful fringed top by MOoH! is the Jane Fringed Top, an exclusive at the current round of Designer Circle. which runs until 2nd September. There are two colour sets, Light and Shadow, and each one has 15 colours to choose. I’m wearing from the Shadow set.

Rise

Look at my life 
Look at my heart
I have seen them fall apart
Now I’m ready to rise again
Look at my hopes 
Look at my dreams
I’m building bridges from these scenes
Now I’m ready to rise again

Listen

Rise, another pick from my very eclectic collection of music! Although this song is about a relationship ending, it’s also about learning to live again after your life has fallen apart. This happened to me a little over six months ago (no hugs or pity please! Had enough of that to last me a lifetime!). Six months is not a long time in anyone’s book, but these last few days have been ones of reflection and deep thinking. I’ve been living in limbo since February, lost, and not really knowing what to do or where to go. I’ve decided it’s time to  pick myself up and to start living again. I’m ready to rise again!

Songbird

Songbird

For you, there’ll be no more crying,
For you, the sun will be shining,
And I feel that when I’m with you,
It’s alright, I know it’s right
To you, I’ll give the world
to you, I’ll never be cold
‘Cause I feel that when I’m with you,
It’s alright, I know it’s right.
And the songbirds are singing,
Like they know the score,
And I love you, I love you, I love you,
Like never before.
And I wish you all the love in the world,
But most of all, I wish it from myself.
And the songbirds keep singing,
Like they know the score,
And I love you, I love you, I love you,
Like never before, like never before.

Street Life

You let the people see,
just who you wanna be,
and every night you shine,
just like a superstar.
A tabloid life is played, 
a ten cent masquerade,
Your dress you walk you talk,
you’re who you think you are.

There’s always love for sale,
a grown up fairy tale.
Price charming always smiles,
behind a silver spoon.
And if you’re keepin’ your hum,
your song is always sung,
you never pay your way,
beneath a silver moon.

I play the street life,
because there’s no place I can go.
Street life,
it’s the only life I know.
Street life,
and there’s a thousand parts to play.
Street life,
until you play your life away 

Listen

Street life Main Front

Street Life! Certainly is the only life for me! At least for this post anyway! For this scene I went to the awesome Midnight Glory sim, which is, as I understand it, an adult themed urban role play town. There were only a few people around while I was there, and none of them seemed to mind me just being there to take pictures (honestly I did just take pictures!), in fact, no one spoke to me at all, which I was quite grateful for. Not that I wanted to be rude or anything, but I was very keen to just tp in, snap my pictures, then get out of there PDQ! Don’t get me wrong, Midnight Glory is a great place, just not the sort of place a scantily clad woman on her own should be late at night, who knows what trouble she can get herself into!

Today I’m showing the fabulous new ink from Sam Tattoos. This one is called Street Life. Street Life is an exclusive at the Hash Urban Event which runs until 30th August. The tattoo is unisex and comes in appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP, Signature and Omega.

The pose I’m using is from Solitary Witch. This one is called Gunslinger 1. Solitary Witch have a whole collection of both female and male poses available at the mainstore and on the marketplace, I’ve included both links below for you.

My cute little bra top is the Lana Bra from N-Uno, this is part of a gacha set exclusively at Tres Chic until 10th September. There’s a whole outfit in lots of colours to collect, I just pinched the bra bit to go with my pants today, but the whole Lana ensemble is awesome. I’m wearing Bra no 4 from the set.

Talking of Gacha’s, the all new and unique PocketGacha is out. This has to be one of the best ideas ever!  You can go to either the PocketGacha Inworld Store, or the Marketplace Store and pick up a free HUD, then just play anywhere! It’s a revolution! No trying to get into events for hours or days on end, no lag, just play in your own space and time. I was sitting on my beach in the sun when I played! You can read more about it and how it all works on the PocketGacha Website.  I have a couple things here I’m wearing that I picked up from the PocketGacha HUD. First up this oh so cute Pixie hair from Besom. Lots of colours to collect, and the headband included! Also these very tight fitting leather pants from Razor///. I’m wearing the Blue Ice but there are lots to choose from.  Really, if you love gacha’s you should give this a try, you’ll be pleasantly surprised how easy it is.

That’s all for now, below are all the links to all the things in all the pictures……

Hippyish

Freebird

When the head of state didn’t play guitar,
Not everybody drove a car,
When music really mattered and when radio was king,
When accountants didn’t have control
And the media couldn’t buy your soul
And computers were still scary and we didn’t know everything

When pop-stars still remained a myth
And ignorance could still be bliss
And when God Saved the Queen she turned a whiter shade of pale
When my mom and dad were in their teens
And anarchy was still a dream
And the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail

When record shops were still on top
And vinyl was all that they stocked
And the super info highway was still drifting out in space
Kids were wearing hand me downs,
And playing games meant kick around
And footballers still had long hair and dirt across their face

I was born too late to a world that doesn’t care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair……..

Private Dancer

Private Dancer

All the men come in these places 
And the men are all the same 
You don’t look at their faces 
And you don’t ask their names 
You don’t think of them as human 
You don’t think of them at all 
You keep your mind on the money 
Keeping your eyes on the wall
I’m your private dancer, a dancer for money 
I’ll do what you want me to do 
I’m your private dancer, a dancer for money 
And any old music will do

Listen

Sometimes a girl just has to to what she has to do to survive…..

Africa

Africa

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti

I seek to cure what’s deep inside
Frightened of this thing that I’ve become

It’s gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Listen

Africa, a long time favourite of mine. Just for the fact that it has to be the only song ever written to have the words Kilimanjaro and Serengeti in the same sentence! Genius writing!

Here I am listening to this tune, not in Africa, but at the beautiful Devin. Showing off yet another awesome tattoo from Sam Tattoos. This one is actually called Africa. Africa is unisex and comes in appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP, Signature and Omega. You can get it now at the Sam Tattoos Mainstore.

It’s All In The Eyes….

It's All In The Eyes...

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

Audrey Hepburn

Oh my gosh do I have some very beautiful things to show you today! First up are these eyes from Mesange. I’ve been blogging for the very talented and lovely Jadis Ashland, owner and designer of Mesange Eyes,  for about a year now, and I have to say she never fails to amaze me with her eyes. Just when I think I have found my absolute favourite set, she goes and brings out another one I like even better! These beautiful peepers are the Skye Eyes and they are exclusively available now at the On9 Event until 28th August. There are 15 colours available, one of which will be discounted at the event by 25%. If you buy the fatpack, you get ALL 15 colours, and believe me they are all gorgeous. I know, I’ve tried them all! As always with Mesange eyes you get mesh eyes, classic eyes, and a HUD which works with Omega enabled eyes. And they are unisex too, which means the guys get to have sexy, beautiful eyes too!

Another lovely lady and awesomely talented designer is Elle Polygon of Slipper Originals. In the begining there were shoes…..beautiful shoes, but now there’s shoes, and so much more! Elle keeps on surprising with her releases! Today I have these lovely nails. These are the Nerissa Fingernails for Maitreya hands. Oh! they are so lovely! I’ve been wearing them a few days now while deciding how I can do them the justice they deserve in a picture, and I still don’t think I’ve done it! The nails are Bento enabled to work with the Maitreya Bento hands. You MUST remember to turn off the Maitreya fingernails in your HUD before you wear these. There are lots of options for these nails via a HUD. There are 16 nail enamel colours, and you can choose to have all finger nails the same colour or change them individually for a unique look. Then there are 16 colour options, plus six metallic options for the stripes. There is also an option to have stars or anchors painted on the nails, I have chosen not to show those here, but, the stars and anchors come in six metallic colour options and you can turn them off or on for all or individual nails also. You can get these awesome nails exclusively now at the current round of Designer Circle until 18th August.

Also from Slipper Originals are my lovely rings. These are the Cera Bento Rings, and they fit both Maitreya and Slink Bento hands. Again, as with the nails, there is a HUD with 12 colour options for the stones and six options for the metals. There is also an option to turn off/on each ring on either hand so you can wear them all, or just one or two or just one…the choice is yours! The Cera Bento Rings are one of two exclusives available at The Chapter Four until 30th August.

That’s your lot for now! Below as usual all the links and things, have a great weekend and happy shopping!
