{ Come little leaves, said the wind }

“Come, little leaves” said the wind one day,
“Come over the meadows with me, and play;
Put on your dresses of red and gold;
Summer is gone, and the days grow cold.”

autumn-both_final

Soon as the leaves heard the wind’s loud call,
Down they came fluttering, one and all;
Over the brown fields they danced and flew,
Singing the soft little songs they knew.

Life asked Death,

Because you are a beautiful lie

Your love has set my soul on fire, burnin’ out of control
You taught me the ways of desire, now it’s takin’ its toll
You’re the right kind of sinner, to release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner, and you know that you were born to be

No, no

Dream maker, love taker
Don’t you mess around with me
You’re a heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker
Don’t you mess around with me

Summertime is here and so are all the fun-in-the-sun goodies you’ve come to expect and maybe didn’t even know you were looking for!  The beauty of shopping in SL… you go in for watermelons, and leave with flamingos. Don’t mind me, I was just inspired by the juicy-licious colors of this new Glam Affair skin “Eles” available at Shiny Shabby this month!  It immediately made me think of the perfect summer fruit, watermelon! And while on the hunt for fruit I ended up with these adorable flamingos from !OhmaiGizzA had also just released this new flirty top and shorts set (complete with color changing bag) that added the element of green I needed, and Elikatira’s new hair at Collabor88 showed off a lovely coral pink ombre that looked like it was meant to be!  All things summer began to commence… So are YOU ready for kickin it in the sun? Don’t forget your juicy melons to keep you cooled off!

The time will come
When you’ll have to rise
Above the best and prove yourself,
Your spirit never dies!

Farewell, I’ve gone to take my throne above,
But don’t weep for me
‘Cause this will be
The labor of my love

Here we are, don’t turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town.
Here we are, don’t turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town
From dust.

Golf_FINAL2

Hello lovelies… Spring is in full force here in the northern hemisphere, the world is bright and green and the days are getting longer so you can spend more time soaking up the sun!  For many people, it also means spending a lot more time being active instead of sitting behind the computer.. A time to rejuvenate and re-prioritize is never a bad thing.  We all need a little break from once in a while.  The Liaison Collaborative and the lead lady in charge, Katya Valeska is no exception.  The event is running it’s last round currently before taking a little hiatus for the summer.  But we’ve been assured, it will be back in full swing in a few months!  So for now, come enjoy this month’s offerings with a very male-friendly and focused theme of “The Gentleman’s Club”.  Ladies, don’t let the theme scare you, there are still plenty of unisex goodies as well as masculine inspired female fashions.  This round just opened May 15th, and will continue to run until June 10th.  Hope to see you there!

{ Whips and chains excite me }

Love may be in the air this time of year but sexual fetishes are also dominating in and out of closed doors.  Maybe it’s the long-awaited “50 Shades of Grey” movie that’s hit theaters or that under all the romance of Valentine’s Day, there’s a darker deeper desire begging to be unleashed.

Second Life has never been short on kinky fun. And although I’m definitely switching it up from what I’m accustomed to, I’ll admit that playing the domme for artistic purposes gave me a bit of that taboo naughty pleasure feeling. I’ll blame it on the array of sexy creations available at various events gridwide right now:  ROMP’s latest round “Fresh” offers plenty of options for the kinky enthusiast — the event continues for a couple more days, until Feb 19th;  sadly one sultry event, Burlesque, has already finished up before I could get this photo posted, but all items should be available in their respective stores; The Liaison Collaborative just opened on the 15th with it’s latest theme of “Leather and Lace”, inspiring sweet elegance but also fulfilling some darker fantasies — this round is more abbreviated than previous rounds so be sure to get on over to check it out before it ends on Feb 28th.
