{ Autumn leaves… just like you did }

Another tear
Another cry
Another place for us to die
It’s not complicated

Another love that’s gone to waste
Another light lost from your face
It’s complicated

Is it that it’s over or do birds still sing for you?
Float down
Like autumn leaves
Hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you’re miles away
And yesterday you were here with me

SweaterWeather_FINAL

Ooh how I miss you
My symphony played the song that carried you out
Ooh how I miss you
And I, I miss you and I wish you’d stay

Do you ever wonder if the stars shine out for you?
Float down
Like autumn leaves
Hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you’re miles away
And yesterday you were here with me

Countdown to Summer!!!BeachyKeen-FULL_FINAL-rv

So Izzie Button of Izzie’s in SL is not only a talented fashion/skin creator, but quite the sim builder as well.  Over the years, she has adjusted the sim that surrounds her store for the seasons and never ceases to amaze me with her flair for the cute and whimsical in her decorating.  This summer she has created the perfect little beachy getaway with several little islands throughout and so many fun picture spots or little nooks to kick back and enjoy the crashing waves on the shoreline. You’ll find lots of lovely little friends running around building sandcastles, soaking up the sun and getting in some summertime selfies.. just watch out for the crabs!

Apocalypse_FINAL

Just missed this round of Uber – “Apocalypse” but needed to get the idea out of my head nonetheless (you can still find all Uber items in their mainstores in a few days).  Supplied with the offerings from EPIA at The Arcade, it was an explosive combo.  The Arcade ends in just a few short days, so ration your lindens and get while the gettin’s good.  I’m just gonna be over here being all badass with my bazooka.

{ 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.

Zachary

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

{ A Weekend Away at The Lodge }

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….
