{ 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

{ You’re my Moon } Shiny Shabby is OPEN!

If I were the ocean,
I could pull back for you
And I could fill up for you;
Cause you are the moon

And I am but the sea,
The wide blue,
Staring up at you

You’re my moon, my moon, my moon

They don’t know why I love you like I do
And gravity don’t have a thing to do with you or me

My moon, you’re my moon, you’re my moon

I made a tidal wave just to get close to you
I made a tidal wave just to get close to you
I made a tidal wave just to get close to you

My moon, you’re my moon, my moon

If I were the ocean,
I could pull back for you
I could fill up for you,
Cause you are the moon

{ Freya & Isis } Belleza’s NEWEST Mesh Bodies & Venus Update!

Belleza-Duo_VendorArt_TrinettySkytower

For those Belleza skin lovers, it has been a long wait for an update on the beloved Venus body, but I can say after seeing the improvements.. It is well worth it!  Not only is the Venus body completely updated and re-textured, but the HUD system has been completely revamped with tons more bells and whistles!

Check out all the updates:

  • New skin texture
  • Skin color picker
  • Skin effects/materials (love this!)
  • Many additional alpha cuts
  • Alpha save slots
  • Alpha Auto-Hide Option for Creators to add onto their clothing
  • New neck sizing with improved neck sheath (fits seamlessly)
  • Additional breast option (natural, push-up, and now PERKY!)
  • Blend/mask mode for clothing appliers
  • Socks/gloves on all body layers
  • Clothing layer with alpha cuts
  • Texture refresh options
  • Hands/feet SL UVS
  • New nail shape (includes pointed nails!)
  • Changing to Slink hands/feet body fit with just the touch of a button

And along with the updates on the HUD, you will also receive 2 NEW Mesh Bodies: Isis & Freya!  Freya is a lovely curvier figure with ample breasts, thighs and bottom, while Isis is a bit more on the slim side with a soft feminine silhouette.

{ One Juicy Flamingo }

Summertime is here and so are all the fun-in-the-sun goodies you’ve come to expect and maybe didn’t even know you were looking for!  The beauty of shopping in SL… you go in for watermelons, and leave with flamingos. Don’t mind me, I was just inspired by the juicy-licious colors of this new Glam Affair skin “Eles” available at Shiny Shabby this month!  It immediately made me think of the perfect summer fruit, watermelon! And while on the hunt for fruit I ended up with these adorable flamingos from !OhmaiGizzA had also just released this new flirty top and shorts set (complete with color changing bag) that added the element of green I needed, and Elikatira’s new hair at Collabor88 showed off a lovely coral pink ombre that looked like it was meant to be!  All things summer began to commence… So are YOU ready for kickin it in the sun? Don’t forget your juicy melons to keep you cooled off!

{ Can I be your Wonderwall? } Shiny Shabby is OPEN!

Today is gonna be the day
That they’re gonna throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do, about you now

Back beat, the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don’t know how

Because maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you’re my wonderwall

“I cook with wine. Sometimes I even add it to the food.”

For those food & wine lovers who gather ’round their kitchens to laugh and enjoy one of life’s pleasures of the senses… I created a cozy yet rustic, old world style kitchen scene with a little help from the items at the current round of Shiny Shabby as well as Trompe Loeil and 8f8 creations.  Always amazed at what designers around the grid can come up with and share with us!

{ Oh you fill my lungs with sweetness } Sneak Peek for FLF!

In the morning when I wake
And the sun is coming through
Oh you fill my lungs with sweetness
And you fill my head with you

Shall I write it in a letter?
Shall I try to get it down?
Oh you fill my head with pieces
Of a song I can’t get out

Can I be close to you

Can I take you to a moment
Where the fields are painted gold
And the trees are filled with memories
Of the feelings never told

When the evening pulls the sun down
And the day is almost through
Oh the whole world it is sleeping
But my world is you

{ Exposed }

I’ve been keeping secrets no one gets to know,
some romantic reasons hidden far below.
In my childish little games will I ever learn to change?
So scared of letting go. But until I do
I’ll never be..exposed.

I’ve been telling stories, I know them all by heart
And they’re so beautiful I wish they could unfold. But maybe that’s a start
cause every word just feels so heavy.
What if you’re not exactly ready.
How do I let it show? But until I do
I’ll never be..exposed.

There’s a consequence of falling when you keep it to yourself.
Broken pieces I’ve collected sitting high upon my shelf.

Wanna be transparent like colors come alive.
I wanna be the girl that lets in all the light.
Like photographs and things and pieces of our dreams
So hard to let them go. But until I do
I’ll never be..exposed

And in my childish little games will I ever learn to change?
These things I’ll never know. Until I do
I’ll never be..exposed.
