RollingStone-ALL_FINAL

Mixing it up for The Secret Affair and The Liaison Collaborative this month, two themes that combine so very well for that summer hippy vibe for all you crunchy granolas out there!  Both events end sooooon, so get on over and shop before the month ends!

Also here’s a special preview of the new LAQ mesh head “Trinity” (but of course I would have to own a head after my own namesake).  I really love it’s unique shape and profile.  And LAQ already has several appliers ready to go for it, as well as Glam Affair (Aida is always on top of things! She’s a machine! BAM!).  Here I’m showing you the GA “Meredith” Applier released for Kustom9.  There are sure to be many more skin makers getting in gear to put a face on this lovely new head.  Can’t wait to 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”

{ R U Mine? } Shiny Shabby NEWNESS!

I guess what I’m trying to say is I need the deep end
Keep imagining meeting, wished away entire lifetimes
Unfair we’re not somewhere misbehaving for days
Great escape lost track of time and space
She’s a silver lining climbing on my desire

And I go crazy ’cause here isn’t where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory
And I can’t help myself
All I wanna hear her say is are you mine?

Are you mine?
Are you mine?
Are you mine?UrbanGrey_FINAL

And the thrill of the chase moves in mysterious ways
So in case I’m mistaken
I just wanna hear you say you got me baby
Are you mine?

She’s a silver lining lone ranger riding through an open space
In my mind when she’s not right there beside me
And I go crazy cause here isn’t where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory

And I can’t help myself
All I wanna hear her say is are you mine?
Well are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)
Are you mine? (or just mine tonight?)
Are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)
(Or just mine tonight?)

UrbanGrey-close_FINAL

Shiny Shabby just opened for it’s October round this past week with a modern approach to fall with focus on the color grey and neutrals rather than the typical warm tones we associate with the season.  Designers have captured this typically cool tone in their creations and invoked into it a sense of comfort and coziness.  Definitely go check it out… so many great offerings, this is just a peek at a few things out there.  The event runs until November 15th.

{ Come to my window }

Come to my window
Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window
I’ll be home soon

I would dial the numbers
Just to listen to your breath
I would stand inside my hell
And hold the hand of death
You don’t know how far I’d go
To ease this precious ache
You don’t know how much I’d give
Or how much I can take
Just to reach you
Just to reach you
Oh to reach you

Come to my window
Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window, I’ll be home soon

Keeping my eyes open
I cannot afford to sleep
Giving away promises
I know that I can’t keep
Nothing fills the blackness
That has seeped into my chest
I need you in my blood
I am forsaking all the rest
Just to reach you
Just to reach you
Oh to reach you, oh

Come to my window
Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window, I’ll be home soon

Neva-Beach-Full_FINALSo in my last post I said I had a date with the beach… and as promised, here I am at the dunes near Neva River… a beautiful beach with picturesque rocky outcrops courtesy of Studio Skye.  It was warm but with a salty breeze and I had the perfect outfit to stroll along the shore in… the cute little PLAYA top that from MIEL that was featured in FLF this past week and the new maxi skirt from DRIFT which I will admit I am loving everything from that store and Kalli keeps cranking out new stuff like nobody’s business.  BOTH items are mesh and come with a color/texture changing HUD so you can change your look easily and won’t break your inventory or your budget.

I know not everyone had the chance to see Neva River while it was open, but hope you’ve enjoyed my glimpse into this lovely paradise through some of my photos.  Neva is sure to bring us more inspiring settings in the future.

Neva-Night_FINAL

This was my “Goodnight and Farewell” tribute to the beautiful Neva River Sim… I wanted to enjoy it in the dark quiet of night.. the beautiful enchanted forest.  I stayed for quite a while even while editing the photo… listening to the trickling of the waterfall and stream beneath my feet.  It will be missed.

Many thanks again Neva and Bootney and Alex of Skye Studio for bringing us such a lovely place to come and fill us with peace.

Please listen to the music I have chosen to accompany this photo… I found it to be very fitting and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
