{ Black and Gold }

I look up into the night sky
And see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black
I feel a weight of something beyond them
I don’t see what I can feel
If vision is the only validation
Then most of my life isn’t real
‘Cause if you’re not really here
Then the stars don’t even matter
Now I’m filled to the top with fear
But it’s all just a bunch of matter
‘Cause if you’re not really here
Then I don’t want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

The Secret Affair will be opening up for yet another round of fantastical goodies on September 14th focusing on all things golden and glitzy.  You’re sure to find anything from urban glam to heavenly gilded gorgeousness.  The event will only be around for 2 short weeks so hurry on over to see what rich treasures await you.

In addition, I want to take this time to mention another very special event going on right now thru September 20th called “The Book of Daniel” that is in dedication to our very own Daniel Estro of Zerkalo.  This past year Daniel has been battling a type of brain cancer.  Needless to say, dealing with such an illness has halted his ability to continue his livelihood thru Second Life at this time…not to mention the enormous financial burden this has put on his family.

This is a fundraising event put together by Neva Xenga of Shiny Shabby and owner of the Neva River Sims, also a very close friend to Daniel and his family.  In collaboration with numerous designers/creators from around the grid to give of themselves so generously in hopes to raise money and offer support to help Daniel and his RL/SL wife & business partner, Anais Terpellie, in their time of need.  Please consider shopping this event and know that in doing so you are helping someone else just like you, who is a part of this wonderful community of Second Life.

To read more about Daniel’s Story and about the event see Neva’s page here.

{ Earth, wind and fire } The Secret Affair is back!

The Secret Affair is back with it’s summery boho beauty!  From now until July 29th, you’ll find gorgeous creations from your favorite designers and creators in fashion, accessories, poses, and home decor!

One of my favorite items from this event so far is this lovely boho chic outfit with tie top and maxi skirt.  Both are texture change via a HUD with several different mix and match options of solids and prints. Definitely get down to check out this bi-monthly event before it ends.

In addition I’m showing off several new things out at The Liaison Collaborative right now, as the theme this month is “Dreamweaver” and with it’s spiritualist and earth friendly offerings. The items between both events mix nicely!  TLC is open until July 30th.

{ 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

{ It can’t rain forever, we’re onto better weather }

Storms cause our flowers to bloom
Clouds like the smoke in the room
My mind is not where it should be
Grey skies made a mess out of me
This pain, these problems
You know they’re not forever
My love, my sweetheart
We’re on to better weather
It can’t rain forever
Some days it will pour
Love is the best umbrella
It can’t rain forever
No-o-o-o
It can’t rain forever
No-o-o-o
It can’t rain forever

{ The fire burning within }

Into the fire
I’m reunited
Into the fire
Oh, I am the spark
Into the night
I yearn for comfort

I will stare into the sun until its light doesn’t blind me
I will walk unto the fire until its heat doesn’t burn me
And I will feed the fire
