{ Cool girl }

You can run free, I won’t hold it against ya
You do your thing, never wanted a future
Fuck if I knew how to put it romantic
Speaking my truth, there’s no need to panic
No, let’s not put a label on it
Let’s keep it fun
We don’t put a label on it
So we can run free, yeah
I wanna be free like you

alley_draft

I’m a, I’m a, I’m a cool girl, I’m a, I’m a cool girl
Ice cold, I roll my eyes at you, boy
I’m a cool girl, I’m a, I’m a cool girl
Ice cold, I roll my eyes at you, boy
Rules you don’t like, but you’re still gonna keep ’em
Said you want fines for whatever reason
Show we can chill, try and keep it platonic
Now you can’t tell if I’m really ironic
No, let’s not put a label on it
Let’s keep it fun
We don’t put a label on it
So we can run free, yeah
I wanna be free like you

{ Black and Gold }

I look up into the night sky
And see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black
I feel a weight of something beyond them
I don’t see what I can feel
If vision is the only validation
Then most of my life isn’t real
‘Cause if you’re not really here
Then the stars don’t even matter
Now I’m filled to the top with fear
But it’s all just a bunch of matter
‘Cause if you’re not really here
Then I don’t want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

The Secret Affair will be opening up for yet another round of fantastical goodies on September 14th focusing on all things golden and glitzy.  You’re sure to find anything from urban glam to heavenly gilded gorgeousness.  The event will only be around for 2 short weeks so hurry on over to see what rich treasures await you.

In addition, I want to take this time to mention another very special event going on right now thru September 20th called “The Book of Daniel” that is in dedication to our very own Daniel Estro of Zerkalo.  This past year Daniel has been battling a type of brain cancer.  Needless to say, dealing with such an illness has halted his ability to continue his livelihood thru Second Life at this time…not to mention the enormous financial burden this has put on his family.

This is a fundraising event put together by Neva Xenga of Shiny Shabby and owner of the Neva River Sims, also a very close friend to Daniel and his family.  In collaboration with numerous designers/creators from around the grid to give of themselves so generously in hopes to raise money and offer support to help Daniel and his RL/SL wife & business partner, Anais Terpellie, in their time of need.  Please consider shopping this event and know that in doing so you are helping someone else just like you, who is a part of this wonderful community of Second Life.

To read more about Daniel’s Story and about the event see Neva’s page here.

I promise you won’t have to wonder thru any Jurrasic parks to get your hands on this new outfit from Addams.  It’s available now at Collabor88 and will be thru the month of September.  With a texture changing HUD you can adjust and mix and match your top, pants, belt, bra with a variety of colors and fun camo patterns. Perfect for a little safari / military / dinosaur hunting roleplay or maybe just for loungin cause it’s super cute and casual!

Also a quick note on the LAQ Trinity Mesh Head (that I love for obvious reasons).. it’s been updated with some really great new features and more expressions options!  So be sure to keep an eye out for a new post with details about that soon!

I was also informed that I was running unnecessarily from a Veggiesaurus but one can never be too careful I say.  It’s possible I smelled like asparagus.
