{ My Happy Place } Coming soon to TLC!

Hi lovelies.. this is gonna be a pretty long post of pics so I’m keeping it short n sweet with the wordiness.  I’ve been a fan of DRD (Death Row Designs) for a while, Jaime is notorious for her epic Arcade/Gacha Collections and so not surprisingly it was love at first sight with this adorable Summer Dock set that is coming soon to The Liaison Collaborative for the “Endless Summer” theme.  It’s perfect for that beach/lakeside party on the dock with friends, and is chocked full of cute animations and seating all around..including in the canoe! (click on the images to enlarge!)

And speaking of friends, I called my girls to come join me for some fun in the sun and snapped a few pics of us for oOo Studio‘s new poses that will also be available at this round of TLC!  Perfect for groups of 2, 3 or 4 people.

The Liaison Collaborative opens up on August 7th and will continue til month end.  Plenty of time to get your end of summer party started!

{ Our love will survive }

If the sun don’t shine
If the world’s on fire
If the oceans rise
Our love will survive
Our love will survive
I don’t wanna see you cry
So baby, let me dry your eyes
I’ll be by your side
If the world stops spinning round
And heaven falls to the ground
I’ll be by your side

TheBay_FINAL3.jpg

If the sun don’t shine
If the world’s on fire
If the oceans rise
Our love will survive
If the sky falls down
If time runs out
When the trumpet sounds
Our love will survive
Under the lightning
Cursing and fighting
Oh, let down by to me
But toxic relations
Sweep through the nations
But your love is all I see

{ I’m like a bird }

“Your faith in me brings me to tears
Even after all these years
And it pains me so much to tell
That you don’t know me that well
And though my love is rare
And though my love is true
I’m like a bird
I’ll only fly away
I don’t know where my soul is
I don’t know where my home is
And baby all I need for you to know is
I’m like a bird
I’ll only fly away
I don’t know where my soul is
I don’t know where my home is

Birds-FULL_FINAL

And baby all I need for you to know is
It’s not that I want to say good-bye
It’s just that every time you try to
Tell me, me that you love me
Each and every single day
I know I’m gonna have to eventually give you away, yeah”

GetShitDone_FINAL

Bare with me.. I was just feeling a bit sassy and decided to have a little fun (if ya know what I mean).  Consider this my tongue-in-cheek, punny attempt at sexy humor.  And I’ll be the first to admit that this is a very real problem.  Needing to get shit done but such distraction abounds.  Namely, tumblr.  Although perhaps getting certain things out of the way first makes for a more productive self. Yeah!  That’s it.  Let’s go with that. 🙂

Anywayyyy… Many thanks to the creators of Shiny Shabby for letting me take their very PG-13 items and ratchet them up a notch to some lude innuendo.  Twas fun!

Shiny Shabby is still open for a few more days… Get the goods by April 15th.

{ What dreams may come }

The Secret Affair is ending very soon, only a few short days, as it closes on March 31st…and I’m wanting to show you a softer, lighter side to the event’s creative offerings.

FairySpringBlue_FINAL

I was inspired by this lovely dress by !Go!, as it’s so very delicate and feminine in nature.  It perfectly suited a springtime blooming photo in a fairytale enchanted forest.  I hope you feel the dreaminess that I was trying to invoke while putting this together.  Whenever I’m searching for landscaping and trees, my go-to shop has always been Studio Skye by Alex Bader.. but when I want something perhaps a little more whimsical and airy.. HappyMood is just the place.  Adding in a touch of both gave me the balance I was looking for in addition to these really creative new botanical succulents by Artisan Fantasy.  Spring is certainly upon us and may the warmer weather bring us the beauty of nature we’ve been waiting for.

“She paints her face to hide a face
Her eyes are deep water.
It is not for geisha to want, it is not for geisha to feel.
Geisha is an artist of a floating world.
She dances, she sings, she entertains you, whatever you want.
The rest is shadows, the rest is secrets.”

“But hearts don’t have locks, she said.
Some do, he replied. There are people who give away the key to theirs for safekeeping. Others are mistrustful and give out several keys just in case. Then there are those who have misplaced them but never cared to look.
What about your heart, she asked.
He smiled.
Your words are the key to mine, he replied.
Never forget your words.”
