Ho Hey

Ho Hey

(Ho!)
(Hey!)
(Ho!)
(Hey!)

(Ho!) I’ve been trying to do it right
(Hey!) I’ve been living a lonely life
(Ho!) I’ve been sleeping here instead
(Hey!) I’ve been sleeping in my bed,
(Ho!) Sleeping in my bed
(Hey!)

(Ho!)

(Ho!) So show me family
(Hey!) All the blood that I would bleed
(Ho!) I don’t know where I belong
(Hey!) I don’t know where I went wrong
(Ho!) But I can write a song
(Hey!)

1, 2, 3
I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweetheart
I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweet

(Ho!)
(Hey!)
(Ho!)
(Hey!)

(Ho!) I don’t think you’re right for him.
(Hey!) Look at what it might have been if you
(Ho!) took a bus to China Town.
(Hey!) I’d be standing on Canal
(Ho!) and Bowery.
(Hey!)
(Ho!) And she’d be standing next to me.
(Hey!)

1, 2, 3
I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweetheart
I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweetheart

Love. We need it now
Let’s hope for some
‘Cause, oh, we’re bleeding out

I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweetheart
I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweet

(Ho!)
(Hey!)
(Ho!)
(The last one)
(Hey!)

Ho Hey‘ ~The Lumineers~

This is just such a cute song, and I thought I’d share it because of that. I love The Lumineer’s sound and this is one of my favourites, the only problem I have with it though is it’s way too short. So, because of that I listen to it twice to get the full effect. 😀 Now……..on the opposite side of this is the songs that go on forever………I mean never-ending. I just can’t stand those, and it doesn’t matter who’s singing…it could be one of my all time favourite singers, and if the song lasts for more than 4 or 4 1/2 minutes, it’s gotta go. One of the worst for that is Rush, for one thing I don’t like Geddy Lee’s voice, and even though he’s Canadian, I just don’t like their sound especially when it goes on and on and on…….I don’t just simply turn to something else, I shut it all down and then enjoy the silence. Listening to Rush is like eating lots and lots of garlic….it leaves a bad taste in your mouth and no matter what you do to try to get rid of it…nothing works! Good evening, everyone. 😀

The ‘Poisson Set 1’ tattoo is from Wild Roots, and although I don’t wear a coloured tattoo often, I couldn’t resist this vibrant orange in this one. The gorgeous details of the fish, perfect placement on the stomach, and whether you wear the black and white version or one of the two coloured versions, it’s really eye catching. Each version comes in 3 ink tones and are compatible with the major mesh bodies and anything Omega driven.

The ‘G0718’ hair is from tram. I always get HUD A….it has all the colours I need!

The ‘Mili Bikini’ in charcoal is from Miss Chelsea.

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the options from the ‘Satin Eyeshadow’ set from Buzzeri.

The pose is from the ‘Me, Myself, & I set 1’ from K&S Poses.

I made a visit to La Vie for this shot. It’s really pretty there. 🙂

If I Should Go Before You

If I Should Go Before You

If I should go
before you
When that long night comes
We’ll meet in the ever after
Please don’t follow me
into the sun

If you should cross
the white light
and find yourself
in the black
I’ll be right there
behind you
You will have no need
to look back

And when the night
cries itself awake
Dying in the light of day
Our endless love
will remain
Until we meet again…

If I should go
before you
Into the great
unknown
I’ll leave my ghost right
beside you
You won’t have to wait
alone

And when the night
cries itself awake
Dying in the light of day
Our endless love
will remain
Until we meet…
Crying ourselves awake
Dying in the light of day
Our endless love
will remain
Until we meet again.

If I Should Go Before You‘ ~City and Colour~

I travel all over the youtube world looking for good music that I may have missed, and in my journey I came across City and Colour, after having discovered You + Me. I didn’t know anything about You + Me other than they sang a song called You and Me and it blew me away. Well, since first finding them I learned the the woman part of the duet is Pink…….who when introduced on the Ellen Show was introduced by her given name, Alecia Moore, but Pink none the less. She paired up with Dallas Green, who is City and Colour, and who writes wonderfully moving songs and sings them with such emotion. When I say the name City and Colour I knew he just had to be a Canadian, because who adds the ‘U’ to so many words other than a Canadian who refuses to become Americanized and drop it? And I learn that yes…he’s Canadian.! 😀 I know i refuse to drop the ‘U’ and I think I sometimes add it to words that don’t even need it! Every word should have a ‘U’, if only for aesthetic reasons. 😛 So have a listen to this song, the idea of a love like this is something I suppose everyone dreams of….or at least the romantics do! 😀

First off, look at my shoes! Yea……don’t let my near nudeness draw your eye away from what’s important here, because we know that it’s the shoes that’s crucial to a look! And **UTOPIA@Design** has released yet another gorgeous pair of footwear. The ‘Rosa’ heels are a leather mule type shoe with a bold strap and rivets for that chunky look, that I love btw. If you’re not familiar with Elisabetta’s work you should know that it’s sold as a full pack only loaded with preset colours plus lots of areas to be individually customized in 10 textures. ‘Rosa’ has 6 areas to colour separately and one thing you don’t see often is the leather has 5 glossiness options, so you can really make them shine. With this release the heel also has 4 wood textures, for something a little bit different. You”ll find ‘Rosa’ at the current round of Cosmopolitan which runs until July 28.

Again, don’t look at my near nakedness here, check out the newest release from Carol G Tattoo Studio! It’s the ‘Flying Poem Leg Tattoo’ and it’s a lovely combination of flora, fauna, and script which makes it pretty much perfect in my book. It’s also available now at Cosmopolitan and it’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven. It comes in either blac(seen here) or soft muted colours.

The ‘Florid Underwear’ is from NiU. I love the detailing on this set. It’s exclusive to the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

My question mark tattoo is ‘Enigma’ from Queen oF Ink.

The ‘H0531’ hair is from tram.

The rest of me is the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from the ‘Minor Obsession’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.

The One

The One

Tell me
Tell me that you want me
And I’ll be your completely
For better or for worse
I know
We’ll have our disagreements
Be fighting for no reason
I wouldn’t change it for the world
‘Cause I know
The first day that I met you
I was never gonna let you
Let you slip away
And I
Still remember feeling nervous
Trying to find the words to
Get you here today
‘Cause you make my heart feel like it’s summer
When the rain is pouring down
You make my whole world feel so right when it’s wrong
That’s why I know you are the one
That’s how I know you are the one
In life
It’s easy to get scared oh
But with you I am prepared for
What has yet to come
‘Cause our two
Hearts will make it easy
Joining up the pieces
Together making life
‘Cause you make my heart feel like it’s summer
When the rain is pouring down
You make my whole world feel so right when it’s wrong
That’s why I know you are the one
That’s how I know you are the one
When we are together you make me feel like my mind is free and my dreams are reachable
Woah
You know I never ever believed in love, I believed one day you were gonna come along
Free me
‘Cause you make my heart feel like it’s summer
When the rain is pouring down
You make my whole world feel so right when it’s wrong
That’s why I know you are the one [x4]

The One‘ ~Kodaline~

I’m wearing the ‘Lami Tattoo’ from Carol G Tattoo Studio for this shot, and it’s such a pretty one. I always prefer a solid black tattoo, it’s beauty solely in it’s design and this one has intricate gently curving lines with lots of detail, and covers the arms, shoulders, and dècolletage. It also comes in white and coloured, if you prefer a different look and like all tattoos from Carol G, it’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies plus anything that’s Omega driven. You can also find it on Market Place for fast and easy shopping!

I don’t think there’s anything sexier than long strands of pearls draping down the back, so when I opened this gift from Vrir I was super excited! I found a sexy set of lingerie to go with them and with the red hair and come-hither look, he was putty in my hands! 😀 Oh….and btw……I was wearing sexy lingerie…..but I think I lost a part of it somewhere….where did that bra go? The necklaces are from If Design and there’s 5 parts to the set and all are unrigged for easy positioning. You can find them on Market Place, too. Thanks so much, Vrir. ♥

The ‘Ascension’ hair is from Stealthic.

I’m wearing the ‘honey’ tone skin from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is the ‘True Feelings’ couples pose from K&S Poses.

Imagine

Imagine

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today… Aha-ah…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace… You…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world… You…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

‘Imagine’ ~Eddie Vedder~ (written by John Lennon)

This song is more powerful and relevant today as it’s ever been, it almost brings me to tears thinking of the world we live in and knowing it doesn’t have to be this way. When it becomes overwhelming, I just narrow my world down to focus solely on what’s good in my life. I consider myself extremely lucky, I’m loved, I live in a wonderful part of the world, and I have all that I need. I try to stay focused on what’s good, rather than be sucked into the maelstrom of unrest that permeates this world, and if it means I look no further than outside my own physical surroundings, as long as I heave peace, that’s all that matters. I hope everyone is having a happy and peaceful Sunday, wherever you happen to be.

This picture is completely different from what you’re used to seeing from me! Firstly…….I’m not in it! I know….when was the last time I wasn’t part of the scenery? Well, today I want to bring to your attention that Summers Wind has reopened after some renovations! I’ve been calling the Winds Communities home since they first opened and there’s no way I’m leaving……..even if I’m ever evicted…I’ll fight to the bitter end to stay! 😀 Summers Wind is the main sim in the community, and it has the largest public areas of them all. The scenery is breathtaking with cliffs, shoreline, and trees all perfect for photography or just enjoying some time out in the fresh air. Summers Wind also has 6 homes to rent, stores, a small dance club, and events center so there’s lots of amenities to enjoy. Winters Wind consists of 9 private rental homes, but there are some public areas to visit. Autumns Wind is the newest part of the community, with 4 rental homes and gorgeous surroundings and public areas also. And Springs Wind completes the Winds Communities, but is private. If you’re interested in making the Winds Communities your home you can see what’s available by stopping in at the Pay Center, from there you can TP to the various available homes.

So, today is the inauguration of the exhibition by Giancarlo Petrini, “Petrini continues the Imagin@rium Art itinerary which proposes artists from the real world who want to be known by the vast international public of Second Life.”. It’s at Summers Wind and along with the newly renovated sim to explore and the art, the fun will continue into the evening with dancing to funky and soul music by DJ Van Loopen. The fun all starts at 1 PM SLT!

Dream Catch Me

Dream Catch Me

Every time I close my eyes
It’s you and I know now
Who I am

Yea yea yea and I know now

There’s a place I go
When I’m alone
Do anything I want
Be anyone I wanna be
But it is us I see
And I cannot believe I’m fallin
That’s where I’m goin
Where are you goin
Hold it close won’t let this go

Dream catch me, yea
Dream catch me when I fall
Or else I won’t come back at all

You do so much
That you don’t know
It’s true
And I know now
Who I am

Yea yea yea
And I know now

There’s a place I go
When I’m alone
Do anything I want
Be anyone I wanna be
But it is us I see
And I cannot believe I’m fallin
That’s where I’m goin
Where are you goin
Hold it close won’t let this go

Dream catch me, yea
Dream catch me when I fall
Or else I won’t come back at all

See you as a mountain
A fountain of God
See you as as a descant soul
In the setting sun
You as the sound
Just as silent as none
I’m young

There’s a place I go
When I’m alone
Do anything I want
Be anyone I wanna be
But it is us I see
And I cannot believe I’m fallin

There’s a place I go
When I’m alone
Do anything I want
Be anyone I wanna be
But it is us I see
And I cannot believe I’m fallin
That’s where I’m goin
Where are you goin
Hold it close won’t let this go

Dream catch me, yea
Dream catch me when I fall
Or else I won’t come back at all

Dream Catch Me‘ ~Newton Faulkner~

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

It’s Monthly Midnight Madness time!! I know I’m posting this and the madness is already almost half over, but there’s still tons of time to get in on the action! The midnight item is still live in all the participating stores and Elle Boutique has the ‘Nymph Necklace’ exclusive to this event! Look at me….isn’t it gorgeous? The gift necklace has a combination colour of pink and mint, but there’s an add on HUD available for just a few lindens to make that into a full set. If you wait around until Noon SLT today, you can grab the ‘Nymph Earrings’, which match the necklace and also have an add on HUD available. If you miss out on the free gifts today, you’re not out of luck……starting tonight at midnight you can grab the free gifts for just a few lindens for a last chance at getting this weekend’s deals, plus the add on HUDs are still there for purchase. Oh……wait……..if you’re an Elle Boutique group member……..the gifts are free for you on Sunday…….yea…so join the group…it’s free, you know….and grab those gifts!

I knew back when the ‘Daisy Top’ was released by *Just BECAUSE*, it was going to be my go-to top for the summer, and it’s proven to be one of my absolute favourites!

I’m out on that look out on the water at Oboeru for this picture and my ‘HARUKA’ hair from Argrace is a little unruly.

As always I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the options from the ‘Satin Eyeshadows’ pack from Buzzeri.

I’m using pose 1 from the ‘Amy’ set of poses from Imitation.
