{ 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”

 WhiteRoom-close_FINAL

[Zerkalo] has been going full on with white styling of decor and furnishings lately with its releases across the grid at varioius events right now and it’s perfect as a nice clean palette to start from and fill in with various neutrals in darker tones for contrast.

Britain Knave-Kennedy of Kennedy Interiors, who is a huge inspiration to me in the home decor realm of SL and Flickr, has really helped me think out of the box when mix and matching certain items and modifying things to change up their uses.  She is also quite known for her love of ‘white’ decor and has done absolutely breathtaking interiors with it.

If something is modifiable, use that to your advantage when decorating!  It takes some getting used to to start to see all the possibilities, but once you do, you’ll be amazed at what you can come up with!

{ Catching up over coffee and shopping }

I’ve been meaning to get together with my dear sweet Maci-cakes for like half a year or something like that.  She finally caught me between deadlines and woo’d me with a shopping trip to Ryvolter who had just released a whole line of Summer Resortwear.  Maci is an enabler though.. she didn’t once try to stop me from buying and buying… until my poor purse was empty (I actually had to get a new one).  We headed over to the cafe to have a little coffee as an end to our little ‘date’.  We’ve definitely gotta do this more often.  Although I might need a loan from the bank first. 😛

LocationSORGO & Le Primitif Sim 

{ Eat, drink and be merry }

I’ve been a fan of medieval history and the renaissance for years, enamored with the pageantry and chivalry, the poetry and the art.  It’s all pretty fascinating.  This also explains my obsession with shows like Game of Thrones or The Tudors.  In fact, the very first time I ever tried to roleplay in Second Life was on the medieval sim of Avalon.  I admit it didn’t last too long, but I’ve always appreciated the RPing community in SL and can definitely see the draw for people to play.

Thanks to events like We ❤ Roleplay and the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, you now have places to shop featuring some of the best RP content creators offering new items monthly!  I hadn’t ever been to the Fantasy Gacha Carnival before and was pleasantly surprised at all the beautiful creations.  Being a gacha event, it’s definitely a money-sucker, but if you’re determined you can come out with some pretty amazing stuff.  I was inspired by so many of the things I saw, my brain was bursting with ideas.  In addition this round of We ❤ Roleplay was chocked full of awesome designs.  I had to visit the Linden ATM before my trip was done.

Medieval-full_FINAL

The photos I have done here were inspired by and centered around the [bauwerk] Banquet table that is available at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.  I imagined a grand castle banquet hall lit with torches and candlelight, adorned in tapestries and banners, a table full with bountiful feast and the more I shopped, the more it came together.  {Junbug}‘s lovely period dress from We ❤ Roleplay was the perfect clothing choice for such a merry feast.

Medieval-feast_FINAL

One item that I want to show off to you that isn’t from either event, however, is this gorgeous necklace from an up and coming store called Empyrean Forge.  The details and texturing are very well done, and I’m pretty picky about my mesh.  And definitely about my jewelry.  So I was quite impressed with this piece and looking forward to seeing more from them.  They have a few items out on marketplace currently and  I’ve been told many more to come in the next several weeks.

Medieval-Face_FINAL

I may not be a hardcore RPer but you don’t have to be to enjoy all these goodies.  For me it’s just about imagination and playing dress up from time to time.

Now… LET US FEAST!

{ Celestial Being } Introducing “Nina” for Belleza!

 Nina-special_FINAL

I’m so excited to introduce to you a gorgeous new skin coming next week to Belleza… “Nina”.  I’ve always been extremely fond of Belleza’s skins and Nina is definitely my new favorite.  The skin comes in seven skin tones such as  Fair, Pale, Medium, Sunkissed, Tan, Deep Tan and Mocha with 12 different makeup options and 5 different brow color options (as well as a no brow option).  There is also a bonus pack of separate lipstick tattoo layers in both gloss and matte sheens if you purchase the fatpack or by the line. And to help you customize your look further the skin includes two freckle options for the face as well as cleavage layers.

Nina is truly versatile and beautiful.
