{ 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?)

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.

{ Begin Again } Classic Romance @ The Liaison Collaborative

WARNING! Commentary ahead….

I think there’s definitely different camps when it comes to the notorious V-Day.  Whether we like it or not, Valentine’s Day comes every year taunting us with it’s candy hearts and mushy cards, it’s overpriced flowers and cutesy teddy bears, and then there’s the chocolate…  Not that I have anything against chocolate.  😛  And I have heard the arguments: “Why only celebrate love one day a year?? Pffft!”  “Valentine’s Day was created by Hallmark to sell more stuff.”  “Valentine’s Day should be called Extortion Day.” And perhaps it’s true that one shouldn’t simply save up all the romance for a single day.  And what if you have no one to romance with?  There are plenty of reasons to not be obliged to celebrate this particular holiday…

Yet, I can’t help but be drawn into the romantic feel of this time of year.  Post-Christmas let-down and winter doldrums leave you feeling deflated.. so having a little love in the air definitely can breathe new life into you.  And that doesn’t mean you have to have ‘the one’ in your life… no need to feel pressure to run out and get a significant other just for February 14th.  Sharing the love works on many levels, and is a pretty awesome upper.  It makes people happy and feel good.  And I don’t know about you, but making people happy makes me happy.  So share it with family.  Share it with friends.  Share it with your favorite furry animals.  Maybe this February you’ll still be single, so what.  Forget the date. Love blooms in all seasons.  But I guarantee you that happiness in your heart will draw others in like moths to a flame.

Be happy and Be Loved! ❤

This round of The Liaison Collaborative themed around “Classic Romance” inspired me to put together a scene straight out of a chick flick.  And I’ll admit that although I wasn’t too excited at first about going all romantical, a little help from a friend brought me out of my funk and feeling ready to begin again.

He’s a good sport letting me clean him up from his typical bad boy look and making him stand for hours pretending to woo me (Thanks, Cyp!). 😛
