“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.”

{I’m going to make this place your home }

afternoons4_FINAL

Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down

afternoons3-long_FINAL

If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down

If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home

{ 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

{ Give you what you like }

Please wrap your drunken arms around me
And I’ll let you call me yours tonight
Cause slightly broken’s just what I need
And if you give me what I want
Then I’ll give you what you like

Please tell me I’m your one and only
Or lie and say at least tonight
I’ve got a brand new cure for lonely
And if you give me what I want
Then I’ll give you what you like

When you turn off the lights
I get stars in my eyes
Is this love?
Maybe someday
So don’t turn on the lights
I’ll give you what you like

Emotions aren’t that hard to borrow
When was the word you never learned
And in a room of empty bottles
If you don’t give me what I want
Then you’ll get what you deserve

OneWord‘s back again this March (1st – 15th) with a theme of Fairytales, so time to summon your inner princess, snag your prince charming and come shopping!

oOo Studio has 2 NEW pose offerings for this event… a couples’ pose called “Perfect Fit” inspired by none other than Cinderella.  My lovely friend and fellow blogger, Charisma Jonesford, who also happens to be a huge Disney fan agreed to come pose for me and play the part of princess-in-the-making.  So big thank you for your help, my dear! ❤

perfectfit_FINAL

I was fortunate that Shiny Shabby has just opened and was full of great finds to decorate up this little cottage fitting of a fairytale. If you love vintage style decor and fashion, you will love this event!  Going on from now until March 15th.

The second offering from Ola for OneWord is a set of regal sitting poses called “Majesty”, perfect for all those mesh gowns with full skirts that make sitting like a lady a royal pain in the arse.  The set contains 8 poses in various sits and arm/hand positions.

May you shop happily ever after!

{ It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to }

It’s the best day… It’s the worst day.  Yep.. it’s my birthday.  In RL that is, and I’ve gotten to that point where each year is more bittersweet than the last.  Where the number betrays me because my mind still tells me I’m 25 yet standing next to my growing kids in a grocery store gives me away.  (“Oh you mean those kids? No, they’re not mine. haha!”) I’ve actually NOT gotten carded buying alcohol *gasp* these days.  And hell yes, I’m offended!  D:  So yup, I’m gonna pout and throw myself a little birthday pity party via my photos today.  😛

And it’s ok, you can poke fun at me, the ol’ lady who just turned 38, too! 😉 ❤

{ OMG Unicorns! } and NEW Poses from oOo Studio

This week, oOo Studio is participating in Fifty Linden Fridays with a set of 5 poses called “Margarethe”.  I decided to take this particular pose and run with it.. all the way to Collabor88 where it’s Unicorns, Unicorns, everywhere Unicorns this month!  Inspired by the tradition in Spain called “The Running of the Bulls” I set out to have a little fun with my uni-friends here and re-create that feeling with a fantastical twist of pink cobblestone streets up in the clouds.  Don’t be fooled by their cuteness, they’re faster than they look!
