{ Hold On } NEW from GizzA and Empyrean Forge!

I’m quite excited to be showing you a couple new items totally unrelated and it’s almost like they were meant to go together. Love it when that happens!  Firstly GizzA introduced this sexy little lowcut dress recently in a variety of colors, this happens to be one of the camo variations and works great with my mesh body.  But I was thrilled that it matched perfectly to my new Circadian Set from Empyrean Forge out now at The Secret Affair.  The set is quite unique to anything I’ve seen before.  The crystals on the set (which also includes earrings, not shown) are color-changing with a HUD.  It has a fantasy flair which Empyrean Forge is known for but as you can see it works well even with more modern fashion style.

{ Everything I gave is wasted }

Dystopia_FINAL

Can’t resist poisoning the message
Just a narcissist trapped inside the wreckage
And the sympathy I had is gone
Deadened by the ceremony
Drama queen,
Stand behind your empire
As your kingdom falls, all because

Take away your broken misery,
I can’t wait to erase your memory
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me.
Everything I gave is wasted,
I’m the one who suffocated
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me

Your rescue, my undo
I’m not the one to save you
I’m empty completely
I’m drowning in your shadow

Take away your broken misery,
I can’t wait to erase your memory
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me.
Everything I gave is wasted,
I’m the one who suffocated
This love, this love is gonna be the end of

Cant chase away your ghost,
Inside it only grows
Nothing left but misery
This will be the end of me
All the shit that you created,
All the scars you celebrated
Couldn’t take away your pain
Couldn’t resurrect your gain
This love will be the end of me,
This love will be the end.

{ with all things new }

A bit of a hodge podge post here.. as there are new things coming and going left and right around the grid right now and Spring just around the corner. I had been wanting to show off this sweet floral frock, the Kate dress, from GizzA for a while. It comes with HUD color-changing pearls and the floral accessory you see here. I paired it with one of TRUTH‘s recent hair releases, Dulce, and added in the gold feathers from his other release, Wren, for a bit of country girl flair.  I’m also giving you a sneak peak of a new skin from Belleza coming soon to Skin Fair 2015, called “Tess”.

 Blithe-close_FINAL

But of all the newness, one of the most exciting things for me was the sim where I took these photos.  Blithe is a gorgeous new sim created by the talented Harlow Heslop, owner of the Pixel Bean Coffeehouse and The Grounds residential sim.  Harlow never ceases to amaze me with her attention to detail and ability to create perfectly serene landscapes, lush and intimate, full of natural beauty and always lots of cozy sitting areas and hangouts.  It’s a photographer’s dream but also the perfect place to go and get away from the daily grind.  It’s truly inspiring and I encourage you, if you have not been, you should definitely check it out.

Blithe-full_FINAL

This was my first time visiting Blithe but I’m already planning on heading back for more photos very soon.  If you have any photos of Blithe you’d like to share, make sure you join their Flickr group as well.  Blithe is also a rez-friendly sim for group members (join for a very small one-time only fee of $200L to help offset ongoing sim costs).  Just make sure to leave no trace and pick up after yourself.

This was one of those photos that was supposed to get done weeks ago and got put off a bit to meet other deadlines but instead of skipping it altogether I really wanted to make it happen.. better late than never.  It was about time to do something a little sexy and feminine…One by one I had collected each piece and once I found this lovely daybed from Scarlet Creative, which is out now at The Liaison Collaborative, I knew it was meant to be.  The picture just came together on it’s own.  A perfect little vintage hideaway… welcome to my (not so) Secret Budoir!

Belleza just re-opened recently with the debut of their new Mesh Body but in addition to wowing us with that, they also released “Yasmin”.  A gorgeous and very sophisticated new skin.  This one comes in all 6 skin tones and as well 6 brow color options, cleavage layers and all lipsticks available on individual layers in both matte and glossy, but note that it doesn’t have the freckle layers.  It does however have a blush layer which I am wearing in the photos.  So many more skins to show you.. I better get snapping… Enjoy!

hippy_FINAL

Throwback to flower power and the summer of ’69, this new outfit from GizzA is hippy chick all the way, complete with colorful embroidered vest and bell bottom jeans!  I decided to show off one of {Entwined}‘s new creations with it… a hair store that’s just opened this week!  (That’s right.. a NEW HAIR STORE.. commence screaming like teenage fangirls now…)  There are never enough mesh hair stores as far as I’m concerned.  I’ll be happily adding it to my list of go-to shops and you should too. And if all that newness wasn’t enough.. Belleza‘s latest full release in store, Yasmin, is also featured above.

So… Peace out and happy shopping, sisters and brothers!

{ Came Back Haunted }

The floor is deep
And the mouth is wide

Saw some things on the other side
Made me promise to never tell
You know me I can’t help myself no

Now I got something you have to see
They put something inside of me

The smile is red and it’s eyes are black.
I don’t think I’ll be coming back

I don’t believe it
I had to see it
I came back haunted
I came back haunted

I said goodbye but I
I had to try
I came back haunted
C-c-came back haunted

Everywhere now reminding me
I am not who I used to be
I’m afraid this is just begun
Consequences for what I’ve done, yeah
