{ And all the beauty I have ever dreamed is right here in front of me }

Steal my breath away
‘Cause I’m so moved by you
Deeper than I ever thought
Was possible, was possible, it’s everything, oh

Difference between me and you
It’s all in where your heart lies
And every day’s another chance
So let’s get it right

I am you
You are me
We are one
Take me in your arms
And flow through me
I’ll flow through you

WheatField_FINAL

Did you lose yourself out there
Did you lose faith and give up
Don’t turn away and hide yourself
‘Cause there’s a friend to make along the way

We are the heartbeat and our souls speak
And all the beauty I have ever dreamed
Is right here in front of me, oh
Is right here in front of me, oh

{ You’re a heartbreaker } NEW from GizzA, Glam Affair and Magika!

Your love has set my soul on fire, burnin’ out of control
You taught me the ways of desire, now it’s takin’ its toll
You’re the right kind of sinner, to release my inner fantasy
The invincible winner, and you know that you were born to be

No, no
You’re a heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker
Don’t you mess around with me
You’re a heartbreaker
Dream maker, love taker
Don’t you mess around 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!

{ “Will you step into my parlor?” said the Spider to the Fly }

“Will you step into my parlor?” said the spider to the fly;
“’Tis the prettiest little parlor that ever you did spy.
The way into my parlor is up a winding stair,
And I have many pretty things to show when you are there.”
“O no, no,” said the little fly, “to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne’er come down again.”

{ Everything I gave is wasted }

Dystopia_FINAL

Can’t resist poisoning the message
Just a narcissist trapped inside the wreckage
And the sympathy I had is gone
Deadened by the ceremony
Drama queen,
Stand behind your empire
As your kingdom falls, all because

Take away your broken misery,
I can’t wait to erase your memory
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me.
Everything I gave is wasted,
I’m the one who suffocated
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me

Your rescue, my undo
I’m not the one to save you
I’m empty completely
I’m drowning in your shadow

Take away your broken misery,
I can’t wait to erase your memory
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me.
Everything I gave is wasted,
I’m the one who suffocated
This love, this love is gonna be the end of

Cant chase away your ghost,
Inside it only grows
Nothing left but misery
This will be the end of me
All the shit that you created,
All the scars you celebrated
Couldn’t take away your pain
Couldn’t resurrect your gain
This love will be the end of me,
This love will be the end.

{ with all things new }

A bit of a hodge podge post here.. as there are new things coming and going left and right around the grid right now and Spring just around the corner. I had been wanting to show off this sweet floral frock, the Kate dress, from GizzA for a while. It comes with HUD color-changing pearls and the floral accessory you see here. I paired it with one of TRUTH‘s recent hair releases, Dulce, and added in the gold feathers from his other release, Wren, for a bit of country girl flair.  I’m also giving you a sneak peak of a new skin from Belleza coming soon to Skin Fair 2015, called “Tess”.

 Blithe-close_FINAL

But of all the newness, one of the most exciting things for me was the sim where I took these photos.  Blithe is a gorgeous new sim created by the talented Harlow Heslop, owner of the Pixel Bean Coffeehouse and The Grounds residential sim.  Harlow never ceases to amaze me with her attention to detail and ability to create perfectly serene landscapes, lush and intimate, full of natural beauty and always lots of cozy sitting areas and hangouts.  It’s a photographer’s dream but also the perfect place to go and get away from the daily grind.  It’s truly inspiring and I encourage you, if you have not been, you should definitely check it out.

Blithe-full_FINAL

This was my first time visiting Blithe but I’m already planning on heading back for more photos very soon.  If you have any photos of Blithe you’d like to share, make sure you join their Flickr group as well.  Blithe is also a rez-friendly sim for group members (join for a very small one-time only fee of $200L to help offset ongoing sim costs).  Just make sure to leave no trace and pick up after yourself.

{ Yasmin } NEW from Belleza

Belleza just re-opened recently with the debut of their new Mesh Body but in addition to wowing us with that, they also released “Yasmin”.  A gorgeous and very sophisticated new skin.  This one comes in all 6 skin tones and as well 6 brow color options, cleavage layers and all lipsticks available on individual layers in both matte and glossy, but note that it doesn’t have the freckle layers.  It does however have a blush layer which I am wearing in the photos.  So many more skins to show you.. I better get snapping… Enjoy!
