{ With fire and gold in our eyes }

When you’re stuck in a moment
And your spark has been stolen
This is our time to own it
So own it
Baby, we were born with
Fire and gold in our eyes, eyes
With fire and gold in our eyes, eyes
Got lightning in a bottle
Hands on the throttle
Even in the dust we shine
With fire and gold in our eyes.

The Gacha Garden meets We<3Roleplay in today’s post for you guys!  It’s been a few days because this one took a bit more work to put together, but I hope you like the results!  I truly enjoy getting to do fantasy themed pics and although the We<3RP event is obviously geared for that genre.. I was excited that there were also quite a few items at The Gacha Garden this round that would also be fun for some roleplay!  Astralia is fast becoming one of my favorite creators for flowery fantastical goodies, as you can see by this gorgeous Fairy Huntress outfit!  Azuchi is also doing really well and popping up in more events, with such rich textures like that of this Archer’s outfit, you really have to see with your ambient lighting on to appreciate how magnificent they look.

Both events are still going strong through the rest of this month so get on over to hunt for your favorite fantasy items!

P.S. if you thought you were seeing things, no, those are indeed cat/owls in the trees. Yay for imagination!

(I wonder if they hoot or meow.)

{ R U Mine? } Shiny Shabby NEWNESS!

I guess what I’m trying to say is I need the deep end
Keep imagining meeting, wished away entire lifetimes
Unfair we’re not somewhere misbehaving for days
Great escape lost track of time and space
She’s a silver lining climbing on my desire

And I go crazy ’cause here isn’t where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory
And I can’t help myself
All I wanna hear her say is are you mine?

Are you mine?
Are you mine?
Are you mine?UrbanGrey_FINAL

And the thrill of the chase moves in mysterious ways
So in case I’m mistaken
I just wanna hear you say you got me baby
Are you mine?

She’s a silver lining lone ranger riding through an open space
In my mind when she’s not right there beside me
And I go crazy cause here isn’t where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory

And I can’t help myself
All I wanna hear her say is are you mine?
Well are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)
Are you mine? (or just mine tonight?)
Are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)
(Or just mine tonight?)

UrbanGrey-close_FINAL

Shiny Shabby just opened for it’s October round this past week with a modern approach to fall with focus on the color grey and neutrals rather than the typical warm tones we associate with the season.  Designers have captured this typically cool tone in their creations and invoked into it a sense of comfort and coziness.  Definitely go check it out… so many great offerings, this is just a peek at a few things out there.  The event runs until November 15th.

{ You Stupid Girl }

You pretend you’re high
Pretend you’re bored
Pretend you’re anything
Just to be adored
And what you need
Is what you get

Don’t believe in fear
Don’t believe in faith
Don’t believe in anything
That you can’t break

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
All you had you wasted
All you had you wasted

What drives you on
Can drive you mad
A million lies to sell yourself
Is all you ever had

Don’t believe in hate
Don’t believe in anything
That you can’t waste

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
Can’t believe you fake it
Can’t believe you fake it

Don’t believe in pain
Don’t believe in anyone
That you can’t tame

{ She used to be mine }

It’s not simple to say,
Most days I don’t recognize me.
These shoes and this apron,
This place and it’s patrons
Have taken more than I gave them.
It’s not easy to know
I’m not anything that I used to be.
Although it’s true,
I was never attention sweet center
I still remember that girl.

She’s imperfect but she tries
She is good but she lies.
She is hard on herself.
She is broken but won’t ask for help.
She is messy but she’s kind.
She is lonely most of the time.
She is all of this mixed up
And baked in a beautiful pie.
She is gone but she used to be mine.

{ 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
