{ Goodbye, in the streets of Mexico } NEW from FaMESHed and Collabor88

Mexico_FINAL

It’s enough, that I know
Our time had a home
In your heart was a place
But the glass always breaks
From the start we were brave
Yet it all seemed amazing

Now I
I wanna know
What it took to leave me
Now I
I wanna know
How would you fall
How would you

Goodbye and it starts to snow
In the streets of Mexico
Goodbye, I am left alone
In the streets of Mexico

Even now as I lay
There’s a space you used to take
If I’d have known
What we made
Would be gone like yesterday
I’d have loved
You with grace
I’d have fought the darkness away
All your lies
Showed my way
Now I’m lost between the faces

Goodbye and it starts to snow
In the streets of Mexico
Goodbye, I am left alone
In the streets of Mexico

Goodbye, goodbye
In the streets of Mexico

{ Reading is Dreaming with Open Eyes } Book Meme

Bookstore-Model

Firstly the big news here is ARCADE IS OPEN!!!  Yes, I’m late on the announcement but I’ve been pretty side-tracked with starting back to school at the beginning of this year.  It’s been requiring a great deal of my time and so I’ve had to step back from SL considerably, however, I couldn’t miss out on Arcade.  It’s truly one of my favorite events, but omgosh I just can’t ever control my spending.  Each round overwhelms me with the cuteness and creativity and I want ALL THE THINGS!  So here I had to show off to you this wonderful set of book inspired pieces from Vespertine… The bookstore building is the perfect little reader’s hideaway to become immersed into your imagination.  Make sure you take a peek at my credits below to see all the other great items that you can find at Arcade, with the exception of my outfit which is a new release from GizzA!  This dress is sexy yet flirty and can take on a casual look or go more ‘night out on the town’ as it’s available in a non-argyle more glitzy fabric as well.  The neck cowl is also optional.

Bookstore-Outside

Since Ms. Strawberry Singh decided to do a book meme last week coinciding with my very literary blogpost, I thought I’d go ahead and take part!  So here you go…

  1. Are you a bookworm? – Sadly no.  I actually envy those that read regularly, getting lost in a book for hours.  I remember doing that as a young teen.  Reading a whole book in a day, but nowadays I’m lucky if i make it to page 20 without falling asleep.  I suppose it depends on the subject matter though.  I just rarely have time to do it.  And I’m one of those unfortunate people that can’t read on a plane or in a car due to motion sickness.
  2. Which do you prefer: hardcover, paperback or electronic? – I think either hardcover or paperback would be my choice.  I haven’t really tried to get into electronic formats.  I have an iPad but have never downloaded a book for it.  I do read a lot of articles or magazines electronically just not books.
  3. Which book is your favorite? – Hmmm well this has changed several times over the years when I did take time to read.  But I admit I have a bit of a naughty streak for literature.  My current book is from “The Sleeping Beauty Trilogy” by Anne Rice and they were recommended to me by a friend who knew I had a penchant for the risque.  They are very.. graphic yet intriguing to me.  Prior to that collection my favorite was Nicci French’s “Killing Me Softly” which is an erotic thriller.
  4. Which children’s book is your favorite? – I really love kids’ books too.  Dr. Seuss was always a long time favorite author, particularly “Fox in Socks”. I’ve read it so much that I’m pretty fast at all the tongue-twisters.  I also love the Pigeon book series by Mo Willems because they are interactive.  And I love reading aloud to little ones using silly voices and stuff. 😛
  5. What’s the last book you’ve read? – The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty (book 1 from above)
  6. Name your top five favorite writers: – Anne Rice, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Nicholas Sparks, and Dr. Seuss
  7. Name a book that had a strong impact on you: – The Pearl by John Steinbeck .. I read it in the 8th grade but the story is still very much embedded in my mind.  It really emphasized to me the darkness of greed and how one decision can impact your entire life.
  8. Favorite & least favorite book genres? – Well I guess you can tell I really enjoy the erotic novels, but ever since I was young I also loved suspense/mystery/thrillers because they keep my attention and excitement.  I do also love Romance /Drama because of the feels.  I don’t get into non-fiction lest I feel like I’m reading a textbook for school.
  9. Favorite & least favorite book-to-movie adaptions? – I don’t think I have a major opinion on this.  I know a lot of people get really upset about movies butchering books, but perhaps I don’t analyze it to that extent.
  10. Have you ever bought a book based on the cover alone? – I’m sure I have… however I tend to prefer reading an excerpt of the text to get a feel for the writing style and the type of reading it is to see if I think I will like it.  A beautiful cover will always garner attention though.
  11. Where do you usually buy your books? – Mostly through Amazon.  I used to shop Borders or Barnes and Noble but there isn’t really one that convenient to where I live right now.
  12. Do you go to the library? – Yes, but usually more so for my children.
  13. How many books do you own? – Probably about 20-25.  Not too many really.  It’s definitely something I wish I did more of.
  14. If you were to write a book about Second Life, which topic would you focus on? The social factor.  I find it very interesting what motivates people to seek out others through a virtual world platform and all the different ways you can enjoy that interaction and how fulfilling that can be for people.

I will admit this meme was a little difficult for me because I’m not as much of a bookworm as I’d like to be.  Maybe that’s something I can remedy in the future… there is something very relaxing and magical about being lost in a book I think.  If you’d like to take part in this meme, check out Berry’s Blog for more information!  Happy Reading!

{ Baby you’re so classic } featuring….FaMESHed, LaRoo, and Belleza

This post is wayyyy overdue, so I apologize for the not so newness of these items but maybe they will still be new to some of you! The month just got away from me much too quickly.  The month is not completely over so there’s still time to catch this round of FaMESHed or Belleza’s November Best Buys.  All clothing items will be available in stores after the event is over.  I decided to make use of all the really great fashion options there were not only from FaMESHed but also from DRIFT and LaRoo (who incidentally just introduced a fantastic new collection of mesh heels w/HUD-controlled feet), and create a classic 3 look preview:  one more uptown, one more downtown and one more casual… I hope you like!

BBB-Nov-all

**Edit** due to holiday, family visiting and then illness this post didn’t make it in time for November, but all the November round of FaMESHed clothing will be in their stores soon…  Sorry! :\

{ As the last leaves fall }

It still amazes me every year how fast October and November fly by, they are some of my busiest months of the year…. I love the fall season so much and it’s a bit disheartening to blink and see that it’s already gone.  People are already talking about Christmas, and decorating, and I’m already hyperventilating at the thought of the dozens of cookies that will be baked this December.  For those of you that know me on Plurk, you shall be tantalized with my decadent treats (i.e. prepare for the food porn), so don’t you worry.  But before I am forced into getting merry and bright, I’m going to take one last look around at this beautiful autumn season and enjoy it.  Thankfully in Virginia, where I’m from, the cooler temps have only just begun to set in and I can get away without a jacket most days.  

Gizza_full

The outfit I’m showing off for you today is really a reflection of something I would wear in real life; the patterns, colors and textures are comfortable and still very stylish, classy and feminine.  The knit belted vest and coordinating wool mini are from Gizza new for the fall/winter season and come in a variety of other tartan patterns and colors.  And when I came across these gorgeous high boots from Intrepid for the Shoetopia Fair, they were perfect to complete the sophisticated look I was going for.  I kind of love the high boot look especially when combined with a shorter skirt or dress.  Now, off to do more shopping..

I hope you all have a great start to your week… ❤

{ His and Hers } Featuring oOo Studio for FLF

I’m gonna hold back writing a novel of a blogpost this time around in order to get these pics out before FLF is officially over.  I have lots more ideas to get out and never enough time to bring them to life in picture-format let alone blog them!  So make sure you stop over to pick up a little HIS and HERS style poses at oOo Studio this round.  There is still some time to catch the tail end of the Men’s Department as well if you like what’s styled on HIM.  For HER, the main ensemble is from DRIFT where Kalli has out some really great new fall knits and wool fabrics and patterns for the off the shoulder top and mini skirt as seen here, as well as a minidress.  All her items are HUD texture change to keep inventory mess to a minimum and changing your clothes easy peasy.

 P.S. There were no toads kissed in the making of this photograph.  Despite whatever he tells you.  He’s read too many fairytales. 😛

Lodge-Stand_FINAL

It’s no secret that I could use a vacation.  I feel like I’ve been burning the candle at both ends for quite a while now.  I would love to have a place to go to retreat in RL, but for now, all I have is SL and the imagination to create what might be the getaway that I need in the moment.  Perhaps I can live vicariously through my photos and pretend that I’m really there… enjoying the sounds of nature, the nearby creek, the birds singing, and the crackling of the fire, while the steam from my coffee tickles my nose as I take a sip while curling up in a cozy chair to read.  To do… nothing for a while.  It’s a beautiful things sometimes… to do nothing.  Even better when you can do nothing with someone else who enjoys doing nothing along with you.

Maybe one day I’ll get away….

Nun-sense_FINAL

More Coldlogic, people!  And ok, yes I know the irony in this pic is humorous considering I am not the ‘Nun-ly’ type.  But I couldn’t help that when I saw this outfit at ColdLogic, it was the first inspiration that came to mind and I just ran with it.  Matched with Maxi Gossamer’s rosary-looking cross chains, and I feel like the modern Nun.  No offense intended to those of Catholic faith, but I have heard stories of what happens when you were out of line and the head mistress had to break out her ruler. 😛  Best behave in my classroom I think!

As an aside, I didn’t take the photo at any convents in SL (and I didn’t bother to look really) because the old classroom style I was looking for was easily found at the Mischief Managed sim.  If you haven’t been to visit yet, it really is a must-see especially if you love Harry Potter.  But even if you don’t, there is plenty to appreciate about the intricate details of this build.  So go check it out!

Fall 1-Full_FINAL

As promised I have some more newness from ColdLogic to show off to you.  I decided to also make it a part of Strawberry Singh’s Autumn Challenge Meme by answering a few quick questions on the subject of “Fall”.  I hope everyone’s enjoying the start to October!

  1. Is autumn your favorite season? Why or why not? – Yes, most definitely without a doubt.  I grew up in Michigan and so Autumn was a bigger deal and lasted much longer than the Fall season I get in Virginia now.  I am just a cooler weather girl… I love my warm sweaters and jeans and sitting around a fire with some hot cocoa.  I would opt for this over hot, sweaty summer any day. 😛
  2. Do you call it Autumn or Fall? – I use them both really.
  3. What kind of weather does your area get during this season? – It’s mostly sunny and mild in the high 60s or low 70s.  Much warmer than I prefer for this season, but as long as I can wear a sweater I’m happy.
  4. Which color do you always associate with autumn? – Rusty Orange
  5. Which Autumn themed sim is your favorite at the moment? – Mine? kidding! lol.. I haven’t really gotten a chance to see all of them out there.  But the newly renovated Floorplan sim where I took these pics is on the top of my list right now.  As well as Vespertine’s.  So many details put into these beautiful locations.

If there’s one thing I love about The Arcade, there’s usually never a shortage of absolutely delicious foodie things!  This year was no exception with PILOT‘s very inspiring Candy Bar and Milk & Cookies Bar sets!  Add to that, digging through my inventory and finding many past arcade items such as the Pastry Mania set from Tres Blah, and I knew there was a Sweet Shoppe theme about to happen.  So one mini-city build later, here we are in my very own Candy-Crush-worthy scene surrounded by all the sugary goodness one could hope for.  And did I mention lots of PINK??? I’m a girl who loves pink and I don’t care who knows it.  Plus all this gave me an excuse to go buy the super sweet Sunday tee over at DRIFT which was perfect for my yummy pic.  Have I made you hungry yet with all my food references? Here, Eat a Cupcake! 😀

Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I have some frosting on my lips to clean up.  *blushes*

Brevity-single_DRAFT

In my neck of the woods, it’s just about time for school to start up again which for me is accompanied by a huge sigh of relief as the house is much quieter.  However, it won’t be long before I’m back at school myself, as I’ll be finally going back to get my Bachelor’s degree.  “MOM! I finally know what I wanna be when I grow up!”  Hitting the books again after all these years is a bit daunting, but I’ve been assured by everyone that I don’t have anything to worry about.  See back in my youth, I will admit, I was pretty academically minded and an over-achiever.  I might cry if i got a “B”.  And that perfectionist side of me is going to have a hard time letting some kids half my age get better test scores than me, so I’m going to have to up my game.  Make sure they know I mean business.  Gotta get in practice of late nights and lots of coffee…  Oh. Wait.  I might already be ready for that. *grins*

For those of you I know who are going after your education as an adult.. I applaud you and admire you.  It won’t be easy, but that was only 18 years ago right? *nervously laugh*

Brevity-Close_FINAL

Alright, about the pics… First I’d like to say I’d been waiting to blog this cute ready-for-school look for a couple weeks now.  Pretty much from the moment I laid eyes on this plaid dress from Valentina E. at the August round of FaMESHed.  It was just right for what I wanted.  Paired with the super adorable knee high socks and heels from LaRoo and maybe I can call it ‘geek chic’.  I’d also like to mention that this really well done, MESH, low-prim, and low-cost schoolroom that is a perfect set for your back-to-school photos or RPing I found on Marketplace from Utilizator.  And lastly, the poses (in the classroom) are from the new group gift “Brevity” by oOo Studio that will be in store in the next day or two.  The class picture is also courtesy of oOo Studio’s “Yearbook” pose/prop… with several different poses to choose from and backdrop colors.
