{ Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter.. } Enchantment opens tomorrow!

Wetter_FINAL

“The Little Mermaid” is the theme for the return of Enchantment! ¬†If you haven’t heard of Enchantment, it’s an event in SL where designers and creators take¬†inspiration from fairy tales. ¬†This round is a particularly fun one for me, as “The Little Mermaid” is one of my long time loves. ¬†How can you not be enchanted by tales of underwater castles, mermaid princesses and of course, evil sea witches?? ¬†Time to flip your fins like you just don’t care.
Wetter-closeup_FINALFor all things under the sea… check it out starting tomorrow, August 14th! ¬†The event will continue thru September 4th.

{ Indulgence }

I want…
your legs
draped over my shoulders,
your voice
breath-filled and coy;
your hands
pulling me in closer,
your body
writhing with joy;

my face
buried deep between
your thighs,
holding me in place;
my nose
filled with your sweet scent,
my tongue
dancing with your taste

{ Love’s floating away } Gacha Garden is OPEN!

Say you love me to my face
I need it more than your embrace
Just say you want me, that’s all it takes
Heart’s getting torn from your mistakes

‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you’re mine
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away

Just say you love me, just for today
And don’t give me time ’cause that’s not the same
Want to feel burning flames when you say my name
Want to feel passion flow into my bones
Like blood through my veins

‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you’re mine
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away
Won’t you stay?!

Won’t you stay?!

Blooms_FINAL

Love’s floating away and so was my time this weekend… so I’m a few days behind on letting you all know some important news: The Gacha Garden is now OPEN! This is a new gacha event that rewards you if you’re one of those that plays the machine again and again trying to get that THING, that thing you NEED. After 20 plays you’ll get an exclusive item (aka “The Seed of Inspiration“) gifted to you just as a nifty “thank you” from that creator/designer. ¬†Pretty nice, I’d say.. so get on over and play, have fun, and good luck gacha-ing!

Countdown to Summer!!!BeachyKeen-FULL_FINAL-rv

So Izzie Button of Izzie’s in SL is not only a talented fashion/skin creator, but quite the sim builder as well. ¬†Over the years, she has adjusted the sim that surrounds her store for the seasons and never ceases to amaze me with her flair for the cute and whimsical in her decorating. ¬†This summer she has created the perfect little beachy getaway with several little islands throughout and so many fun picture spots or¬†little nooks¬†to kick back and enjoy the crashing waves on the shoreline. You’ll find lots of lovely little friends running around¬†building sandcastles, soaking up the sun and getting in some summertime selfies.. just watch out for the crabs!

{ Oh you fill my lungs with sweetness } Sneak Peek for FLF!

In the morning when I wake
And the sun is coming through
Oh you fill my lungs with sweetness
And you fill my head with you

Shall I write it in a letter?
Shall I try to get it down?
Oh you fill my head with pieces
Of a song I can’t get out

Can I be close to you

Can I take you to a moment
Where the fields are painted gold
And the trees are filled with memories
Of the feelings never told

When the evening pulls the sun down
And the day is almost through
Oh the whole world it is sleeping
But my world is you
