{ When beauty is in bloom all around }

A big Happy Birthday is in order this month for The Liaison Collaborative!  Celebrating 3 years of offering the residents of Second Life some of the best in home decor, fashion, beauty, and poses.  Congrats TLC!  And to show off a few of my favorites this round, I’ve composed a little picture of all things pretty and girly as spring is in bloom just around the corner.  TLC runs from March 10th – 30th so don’t wait to long to check it out!

Also some new “Pretty” singles poses from oOo Studio introduced on Fifty Linden Friday are out in store now… a little collection of pretty chair or ground sits perfect for your springtime photoshoots.

GothicInn_FINAL

Dark and morbid yet elegantly gothic..

..the Dead & Breakfast Inn invites you to come stay for fright or two.  

Eat, drink and be scary!  The company and accomodations are to die for!  

This is our busy season so please remember to book a head.  

Warning!! Abundance of pictures ahead! I had a bit too much fun getting into the Halloween spirit this past weekend and put together a creepy version of a vintage Bed & Breakfast with all the wonderfully spooky creations that were out in Second Life this past month.  HauntedInn-Entry_FINAL

 WhiteRoom-close_FINAL

[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!

{ Pocketful of Sunshine }

Do what you want, but you’re never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.
No, oh whoa

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it’s all mine.
Oh, oh whoa

Wish that you could, but you ain’t gonna own me.
Do anything you can to control me.
Oh, oh no

Take me away
A secret place
A sweet escape
Take me away

Take me away
To better days
Take me away
A hiding place

There’s a place that I go,
That nobody knows.
Where the rivers flow,
And I call it home.

And there’s no more lies.
In the darkness, there’s light.
And nobody cries.
There’s only butterflies.

{ Lost Love’s Letters }

Some things you can’t go back to, some things need left alone
Don’t mess with a memories of a life passed on
Oh the tumbling reservations at the heart of my mistakes
Oh some things you can’t go back to cause you let them slip away

I don’t wanna be a witness to a path that’s overgrown
I don’t wanna see this house not be a home
‘Cause time has taken toll on what we couldn’t see
No I don’t wanna be a witness to the end of you and me

How am I gonna make each moment better than the last
How am I gonna make it better if I can’t go back

Oh the tumbling reservations at the heart of my mistakes
Oh some things you can’t go back to cause you let them slip away
Oh some things you can’t go back to

I decided to throw caution to the wind, crank up my tunes and dance in my underpants. Who cares about the neighbors?! It’s the cats that are really judging me here, as cats usually do. This ain’t no American Idol finalist but it comes from the heart.

Paulina_FINAL

Featuring one from a new set of poses “Paulina” created by oOo Studio for Fifty Linden Fridays this week. I have been trying to wear my Belleza Venus body as much as possible 1. because i love it so much and 2. challenging myself to find all the ways it can work for me. Trying it here with the Visage head from Slink and since there are few skinmakers that make appliers for both the Visage AND Belleza – Izzie’s was the winner here!  Her lovely Maci skin on my face and just recently added Belleza appliers were the perfect choices for this look.

My dancing feet needed these adorable toeless socks & ballet shoe combo from Reign at FaMESHed this month, covering up with the open denim shirt from Emery also at FaMESHed.  This was also where I picked up the laid back messy bed from Stockholm & Lima which has a great texture change option to suit your style.  Wall decor by Brixley out now at The Liaison Collaborative perfect for this transition into Winter in my nice new cozy Scarlet Creative house from Collabor88.  So many great events going on right now!
