Helpless

Helpless

Today, I bring you the classic sound of Neil Young singing, Helpless! Listen and enjoy! Well, you can’t really listen….you can just mutter the words to yourself if you can think of the tune! If not you can always check it out on youtube!!

There is a town in north Ontario,
With dream comfort memory to spare,
And in my mind
I still need a place to go,
All my changes were there.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless
Baby can you hear me now?
The chains are locked
and tied across the door,
Baby, sing with me somehow.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless.

And on with the show! I’m featuring the Bethani Set in Paisley from {AnaMarkova} Designs and available at the current round of Designer Showcase! This round is on for a few more days so there’s still time to get in on the deals! The Bethani Set, which includes the shorts and top, comes in nine designs and is compatible with the SLink, Belleza, Maitreya, and TMP mesh bodies!

The Roxy, RARE, white and glass shoes are from N-core Design. They’re HUD driven with options for the metals and inner sole! They’re compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

I love the Anime 05 hair from Dura!

The pose is called Jackpot, and it’s from the Wild Card pose set from Le Poppycock!

The foundation of my look starts with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, and the high feet and casual hands from Slink.

For the picture, I found this little area near the Thaino Designs main store on the Soul Reaper sim!

You Learn

You Learn

I recommend getting your heart trampled on to anyone
I recommend walking around naked in your living room
Swallow it down (what a jagged little pill)
It feels so good (swimming in your stomach)
Wait until the dust settles

You live you learn
You love you learn
You cry you learn
You lose you learn
You bleed you learn
You scream you learn

~Alanis Morissette

Love lost. Promises broken. Friend’s betrayal. Self loathing. Loss of life. I could go on and on about life issues that can teach lessons, and through the learning the scars are permanent. I remember the times that I’ve been at a low point. When I think life will never be the same again and I can’t go on dealing with the changes! But, I’ve learned! Maybe not everything I need to learn in life……but each moment in time, when the pain is unbearable, it’s another lesson to learn! I still trust, I love, I am confident with myself, and I am learning to cope with the knowledge that life itself is temporary, and that’s OK!

I’ve always been open about my emotional state! The ease with which tears come to me is frustrating, but it’s me….and that’s just the way I am. So, when I saw the Rough Night Shadow pack from Veechi, I knew that this is the perfect make up for me! The pack has six styles of less than perfect make up and are compatible with classic avatars plus the Genesis Labs, Catwa, and Logo mesh heads! They’re available at the Fetish Fair which runs until September 2.

The stunning Equinox Dress from DECOY has made me admit to myself that fall is pretty much here, at least in my corner of the world! I love all the fall colours, outside in nature and in Second Life….where fall is so warmly embraced! This dress comes in nine rich and vibrant colours and is compatible with the Maitreya, Lara and Belleza, Isis and Freya mesh bodies! This dress has a new option to me, and it’s a really unique one! It’s HUD driven for MoveFX, which adds a glow to the skirt while you walk or fly! It’s really pretty! It’s available for a little while yet at Collabor88!

You’ll want to take a close look at the Stiletto Peep Toes shoes from {MYNX}!! They come in six colours and are compatible with SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet. This is the Nude tone and it can be paired with pretty much any colour to great effect!

The very pretty nail applier is from the Hot Fudge Sauce mini pack from Hello Dave. It contains five rich gold and brown colours to compliment all your fall attire!

The Nowles hair is from KoKoLoReS.

The Tres Chic Colorset2 Necklace from Lazuri goes back to 2013, but it still looks great! I’d call it timeless!! I did find the Tres Chic necklace on Market Place, but not in these fall tones, so I’m not sure if it’s available!

I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head by Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink. It’s the perfect package for me!

These poses are from the Headshot(Women) pose packs from Le Poppycock! The poses come with an arms only version so you can add it to other poses without moving the legs!

I’m out on the pier at Furillen for these shots!

Writing is Thinking on Paper

Writing is Thinking on Paper

~Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.~

~William Wordsworth~ Letter to his Wife (April 29 1812)

I’ll never pretend to be a ‘writer’! I jot down some thoughts and ideas once in awhile and that’s about it! I admire all the writers of the world and wish that I could do what they do! But, I don’t have the patience for it! I could maybe write short stories. They would be heavy on the ‘short’ and light on the ‘story’!

I LOVE blogging for Bokeh! It keeps me on my toes not knowing what the next creation might be! One day it’s a necklace….the next a gorgeous home decor item! So, when I opened this blog pack I have to admit that I wondered what goes on in the mind of Pamela Igalies, the creator behind Bokeh, that she can come up with these great things!! This time around it’s the Paper Airplanes and Paper Cranes Typing AO! This is an animation override that has paper airplanes or paper cranes appear when you type! You can choose between a fleet or just a single one and you can change direction and colours! Plus, you do a little hand fluttering animation while you type! This is available at the current round of Tres Chic, the theme being Bon Voyage…and like Pamela says, “Everything you write is a trip!” Tres Chic runs until September 10.

I’m wearing the August group gift from #bubbles here and it’s cool, comfortable, and looks great! The dress and belt are compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies plus comes in five fitmesh sizes! It’s free to group members and the group is free to join!

The Dorothy hair from [RUNAWAY HAIR] is a cute style for being out and about on a summer evening! It’s available at the current round of Enchantment…this is from the browns pack.

The Leather Sandals, Two, brown are from a gacha at the !APHORISM! main store!

I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Maitreya, Lara mesh body and the casual hands and flat feet from SLink!

I added the AO to a pose from the Strong Woman pose pack from KoKoLoReS.

I’m up in a relaxing little area on a hill at Garlic Breath at Melee Island…home to the main stores of Bokeh and even.flow!

Oh There’s a Time, My Dear

Oh There's a Time, My Dear

When you go out, my dear.
To take a wine, my dear.
A wine that has some flair!
That wine is Hochtaler….oh yes it’s Hochtaler
Oh what a wine my dear!

That’s an ad from the 80’s that I’ve never been able to rid myself of! She sings in a low gruff voice and wears a little outfit that reminds me of this little outfit I have on! Tune in next time when I sing the song from the old Fanta ad, cuz you know it’s a bottle of fun!!

I love this little outfit from Anachron! It’s the Burlesque Corset outfit and it’s available at the current round of Genre which runs until September 13. It comes in five colours and includes the corset, hat and panties! It’s compatible with the Belleza(Venus & Isis), Maitreya Lara, and SLink Physique mesh bodies and also includes five standard sizes. The panties are also compatible with Omega compatible mesh bodies! It has lovely detailing and the cute little fascinator completes the look!!

Once I saw the Wicked Booties from lassitude & ennui, I knew I had to pair it with the Burlesque outfit! These booties are available at Enchantment, which is on now until August 31. The booties fit the Maitreya Lara mesh body and come in seven colours! Love!!

My eyeshadow is from the Charade Shadow set from Veechi and available at the current round of Collabor88.

 

The hair is Ina from Argrace!

My whole look all starts with the Maitreya Lara mesh body, the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, and the casual hands from SLink.

The Language of Tears

The Language of Tears

“Let your tears come. Let them water your soul.”

~Eileen Mayhew~

I’ve always been one who cries easily! Even when life is good and I have few major issues, I cry! I cry in happiness and sadness. I cry from memories and melancholy! I cry in anger and frustration! I cry when someone says they care and I cry when I feel that no one cares! But, there are times when the tears are from a deep down sadness that won’t go away! It’s not depression….I know that feeling…..it’s just being sad! Happy times will come again….I’m sure of that! But, until then, I’ll be kind to myself…..and know that I’m strong….even when I cry!

I’m going to start this post off with the Slipped Dress from FLIPPANT! It’s a cute little slip dress that is nice and cool and looks good! It comes in five standard sizes plus a fitted version. It’s HUD driven with four pretty prints too! The back is nice and strappy to show off those shapely shoulders!

This nail applier is one of the most gorgeous I’ve ever see!! This is from the Silhouette pack from Hello Dave! It’s SLink and Omega compatible and includes 35 options!

The Thrift Shop is running until August 27 so there’s still time to get in on the deals! Slipper Originals is there with some really incredible deals on fatpacks! I’m wearing the Cecily Sandals here! They’re HUD driven with sixteen colours and five ares to customize, plus they’re compatible with SLink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

Also at the Thrift Shop is Pimp My Sh!t with a whole bunch of tattoo goodness! This is the Tic Toc Sleeve Tattoo which comes in three ink tones and is Omega and TMP compatible…along with the tattoo layer for classic avatars! I love tattoos…and Second Life allows me to be really daring with them, while in real life I have two little ones that are easily covered!

Here is the photo I promised of the Celeste hair from +elua+ and available at Collabor88! This is from the browns pack!

The Kitten necklace in sliver is from Avaway and available at The Gacha Garden.

My basics are the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink!

I found out that Maison de L’amitie on the Orhcid sim has a whole different look than the last time I was there! I found this little area for the pictures there!
