{ a better connection }

“There is no wi-fi in the forest, but we promise you’ll find a better connection.”

Mixing it up for The Secret Affair and The Liaison Collaborative this month, two themes that combine so very well for that summer hippy vibe for all you crunchy granolas out there!  Both events end sooooon, so get on over and shop before the month ends!

Also here’s a special preview of the new LAQ mesh head “Trinity” (but of course I would have to own a head after my own namesake).  I really love it’s unique shape and profile.  And LAQ already has several appliers ready to go for it, as well as Glam Affair (Aida is always on top of things! She’s a machine! BAM!).  Here I’m showing you the GA “Meredith” Applier released for Kustom9.  There are sure to be many more skin makers getting in gear to put a face on this lovely new head.  Can’t wait to see!

[Zerkalo] has been going full on with white styling of decor and furnishings lately with its releases across the grid at varioius events right now and it’s perfect as a nice clean palette to start from and fill in with various neutrals in darker tones for contrast.

Britain Knave-Kennedy of Kennedy Interiors, who is a huge inspiration to me in the home decor realm of SL and Flickr, has really helped me think out of the box when mix and matching certain items and modifying things to change up their uses.  She is also quite known for her love of ‘white’ decor and has done absolutely breathtaking interiors with it.

If something is modifiable, use that to your advantage when decorating!  It takes some getting used to to start to see all the possibilities, but once you do, you’ll be amazed at what you can come up with!

{ Bleeding Out }

I’m bleeding out
Said if it’s the last thing that I do
Is to bring you down
I’ll bleed out for you
So I bare my skin
And I count my sins
And I close my eyes
And I take it in
And I’m bleeding out
I’m bleeding out for you.. for you

When the day has come
But I’ve lost my way around
And the seasons stop and hide beneath the ground
When the sky turns gray
And everything is screaming
I will reach inside
Just to find my heart is beating

You tell me to hold on
Oh you tell me to hold on
But innocence is gone
And what was right is wrong

‘Cause I’m bleeding out
Said if it’s the last thing that I do
Is to bring you down
I’ll bleed out for you
So I bare my skin
And I count my sins
And I close my eyes
And I take it in
And I’m bleeding out
I’m bleeding out for you.. for you.
