All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray…

hippy_FINAL

Throwback to flower power and the summer of ’69, this new outfit from GizzA is hippy chick all the way, complete with colorful embroidered vest and bell bottom jeans!  I decided to show off one of {Entwined}‘s new creations with it… a hair store that’s just opened this week!  (That’s right.. a NEW HAIR STORE.. commence screaming like teenage fangirls now…)  There are never enough mesh hair stores as far as I’m concerned.  I’ll be happily adding it to my list of go-to shops and you should too. And if all that newness wasn’t enough.. Belleza‘s latest full release in store, Yasmin, is also featured above.

So… Peace out and happy shopping, sisters and brothers!

{ A Bird’s Song } FLF & FaMESHed

Melody_FINAL

When I would play my song
You used to sing along.
I always seem to forget
How fragile are the very strong.
I’m sorry I can’t steal you
I’m sorry I can’t stay
So I put band-aids on your knees
And watch you fly away

I’m sending you away tonight
I’ll put you on a bird’s strong wing
I’m saving you the best way I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing

You know we’re not so far away
Get on a boat, get on a train
And if you ever think you’re drowning
I’ll try to slow the rain
In two years or so
Drop me a line
Write me a letter
I hope to find you’re doing better, better than today, better everyday

I’m sending you away tonight
I’ll put you on a bird’s strong wing
I’m saving you the best way I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing
I’m saving you the only way that I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing
I hope again one day to see you bring your smile back around again

{ Down by the Boardwalk }

Playing catch up as usual… I have been juggling too many projects at once to get things out as timely as I would’ve liked to.  I keep thinking it will get easier, but maybe I should just stop being so hard on myself.  The work will always be there.  I just have to accept that it’s ok that I’m not perfect all the time. I know, I can hear the audible gasp, “What??! Trin’s not perfect?”  I’m afraid to tell you folks, the truth is out. 😛

I found this adorable outfit at Summerfest a couple weeks ago, paired it with some cute mary janes, hair and teddybear backpack I found at Collabor88 (June).  Then enter in the Belleza FLF skin from last week that was a perfect match.  But it was oOo Studios poses “Katrina” for FLF today that really spurred me on to get it blogged finally.  The poses have a youthful, care-free feel about them, making this look the ideal choice for them.

The scene featuring Barneworth Anubis’s new Boardwalk building kit is from the last round of the Garden that ended this past week, and as much as I wanted to buy everything in the place (cuz omgggg the cuteness!), I had no time to build myself a beach this past month.  It’s on my (ever-growing) to-do list.  But no worries, even though I’m blogging all these events that have since ended, I’ll make sure you know where to find all these great items at the end of this post.

Hope you all are having a fun-filled summer, full of sweet treats & sunny days! 😀
