You’re In My Heart

You're In My Heart

I didn’t know what day it was
when you walked into the room
I said hello unnoticed
You said goodbye too soon

Breezing through the clientele
spinning yarns that were so lyrical
I really must confess right here
the attraction was purely physical

I took all those habits of yours
that in the beginning were hard to accept
Your fashion sense, Beardsley prints
I put down to experience

The big bosomed lady with the Dutch accent
who tried to change my point of view
Her ad lib lines were well rehearsed
but my heart cried out for you

You’re in my heart, you’re in my soul
You’ll be my breath should I grow old
You are my lover, you’re my best friend
You’re in my soul

My love for you is immeasurable
My respect for you immense
You’re ageless, timeless, lace and fineness
You’re beauty and elegance

You’re a rhapsody, a comedy
You’re a symphony and a play
You’re every love song ever written
But honey what do you see in me

You’re an essay in glamour
Please pardon the grammar
but you’re every schoolboy’s dream
You’re Celtic, United, but baby I’ve decided
You’re the best team I’ve ever seen

And there have been many affairs
Many times I’ve thought to leave
But I bite my lip and turn around
’cause you’re the warmest thing I’ve ever found

You’re In My Heart‘ ~Rod Stewart~

I worked on this picture last night and thought I had nailed it in one shot, since I’d gotten called away from it to do something way more exciting. But, upon closer inspection I saw a couple little things that bothered me, so I redid it this morning, with way more than one shot to make it something I can live with. It’s nothing special…..just me sitting on the bed pondering life, with long hair for a change.

I’m wearing the ‘Sheer Satin Halen’ from Kaithleen’s and available now at FaMESHed X.

And the ‘Bethy’ hair is from Sintiklia.

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. I’ve added on of the shadows from the ‘Smokey Eyeshadow’ from Izzie’s for this look.

The pose is from Le Poppycock.

Come Home

Come Home

Well, hello, world
Hope you’re listening
Forgive me if I’m young
Or speaking out of turn

There’s someone
I’ve been missing
I think that they could be
The better half of me

They’re in the wrong place
Trying to make it right
But I’m tired of justifying
So I say to you..

Come home, come home
‘Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long, for so long
And right now there’s a war between the vanities
But all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known
So come home

I get lost in the beauty
Of everything I see
The world ain’t half as bad
As they paint it to be

If all the sons,
All the daughters
Stopped to take it in
Well hopefully the hate subsides
And the love can begin

It might start now, yeah
Well maybe I’m just dreaming out loud
Well, until then…

Come home, come home
‘Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long, for so long
Right now there’s a war between the vanities
But all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known
Ever known
So come home

Everything I can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why I need you here
Everything I can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why I need you here
So hear this now…

Come home, come home
‘Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long, for so long
Right now there’s a war between the vanities
But all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known
Ever known
So come home
Come home

Come Home‘ ~OneRepublic~

The saying is that home is where you hang your hat, but I’m proof that that isn’t always true. I’m a farm girl born and raised and have always had a love of the land, right from when I was a young girl…..and no matter where I’ve hung my hat over the years, home is back there on the farm. The other places I’ve lived have been only as dear to me as a hotel room is for a night, just a place to pass the time until you can get back home again. Thankfully I’m in a place now where I can be where I truly feel at home, and am very thankful for that………and the time I’ve spent away have been a part of how I’ve gotten to where I am. I appreciate it more because I have been away for extended periods, and since I’m not a young girl anymore I realize the importance of the passing of time and to live a life that makes me happy. It wasn’t easy getting here…..but it was all well worth it….I wouldn’t change a thing. Well, there’s lots of things I could have done without…..but that’s for another day!

I love the ‘Coco’ hair from MINA Hair…….there’s 3 styling options…..two with the blindfold and one without. It can be found right now at FaMESHedX.

Shameless

Shameless

Don’t speak, no, don’t try
It’s been a secret for the longest time
Don’t run, huh, no don’t hide
Been running from it for the longest time

So many mornings I woke up confused
In my dreams, I do anything I want to you
My emotions are naked, they’re taking me out of my mind

Right now I’m shameless
Screaming my lungs out for ya
Not afraid to face it
I need you more than I want to
Need you more than I want to
Show me you’re shameless
Write it on my neck, why don’t ya?
And I won’t erase it
I need you more than I want to
Need you more than I want to

It’s all there, now it’s real
Now that you have me, do you want me still?
My kisses are history they go back a long time
Uh, and I’m tired of loving
somebody that’s not mine

So many mornings I woke up confused
In my dreams, I do anything I want to you
My emotions are naked, they’re taking me out of my mind

Right now I’m shameless
Screaming my lungs out for ya
Not afraid to face it
I need you more than I want to
Need you more than I want to
Show me you’re shameless
Write it on my neck, why don’t ya?
And I won’t erase it
I need you more than I want to
Need you more than I want to

Distance, inches in between us
I want you to give in
I want you to give in
Weakness, tension in between us
I just wanna give in
And I don’t care if I’m forgiven

Right now I’m shameless
Screaming my lungs out for ya
Not afraid to face it
I need you more than I want to
Need you more than I want to
Show me you’re shameless
Write it on my neck, why don’t ya?
And I won’t erase it
I need you more than I want to
Need you more than I want to

Shameless‘ ~Camila Cabello~

I was so excited yesterday, let me explain! The day before I had entered one of those comment and share posts on Facebook that gives you a chance to win something. And……I won early access to FaMESHed X!! It’s one of my favourite events, there’s always lots of interesting goodies and to have the opportunity to shop lag free, and for such a long time, was so great! I made several visits during the day and each time found more designers had their set up complete and I could shop to my heart’s content. I found quite a few things…..some I’ll show you…..and some are for a little more intimate times! 😀 Before going to early access I already knew what **UTOPIA@Design** had created exclusively for FaMESHed X, the ‘ ASTRIA’ heels……….which are incredible…ofc! The detailing and texturing is beautiful and they make a statement all on their own……..I will admit though that I can’t imagine walking in them in real life….I’d break a leg or 2 for sure! FaMESHed X is now open to the public…….so if you want explore the wilder side…..you’ll want to see what’s waiting for you.

Also at FaMESHed X is the ‘Natalie’ bodysuit from The Forge. It’s bold and will make you feel beautiful showing off all your curves. It’s fitted for Maitreya and Legacy.

The hair here is ‘Ho814’ from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

And the chair and pose is from the ‘Legs for Days’ set of poses from FOXCITY.

Glow

Glow

Like a chest of hidden gold
Shimmers in the depths below
We are, we are, the treasures that
They hide
Like the sun that saves the night
Bursting through a darkened sky
We are, we are, soldiers of the light

And we will glow
Oh, oh, oh

So let them build their righteous
Tower
Our blazing hearts will burn it down
We are, we are, soldiers of the light
And we will glow
Oh, oh, oh

We are fire, we are fire
And our love will burn
The flame will never die
We are brighter, we are brighter
Let’s show ’em how we light up
Tonight
We will glow
Oh, oh, oh

Like a chest of hidden gold
Shimmers in the depths below
We are, we are, the treasures that
They hide
Like the sun that saves the night
Bursting through a darkened sky
We are, we are, soldiers of the light

And we will glow
Oh, oh, oh

We are fire, we are fire
And our love will burn
The flame will never die
We are brighter, we are brighter
Let’s show ’em how we light up
Tonight
We will glow
Oh, oh, oh
We will glow
Oh, oh, oh

We are fire, we shoot our flame up high
They see us burn across a thousand miles
We are brighter, the flame will never die
Let’s show ’em how we light up tonight
Oh, you and I we’re soldiers of light

We will glow
Oh, oh, oh
We will glow
Oh, oh, oh
We will glow

Glow‘ ~Ella Henderson~

I have something to tell you………..it’s a secret but I’ll let you in on it. You all know how much I love Eddie Vedder……well…….I have a girl crush…..on Ella Henderson. This is my favourite song of hers, it’s uplifting and inspiring and she sings so beautifully……and of course she’s beautiful. But don’t worry Eddie……….you’ll always be number 1!! 😛

I’ve always loved anything from Big Beautiful Doll, but the ‘Livia Dress’ is particularly pretty in my estimation. The empire waistline and lacey upper combines with the short solid skirt is beautifully feminine in it’s simplicity. It’s available now at the Kinky Event which runs until October 22.

The ‘Elsa Collar’ is from a gacha at Kibitz.

I’m wearing my all time favourite hair, ‘G1204’ from tram.

I’ve added the ‘Smokey Eyeshadow’ from Izzie’s to my look, which all starts with 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 ‘Sydney’ set of poses from Ana Poses.

Big Girls Cry

Big Girls Cry

Tough girl
In the fast lane
No time for love
No time for hate
No drama no time
For games
Tough girl
Whose soul aches

I’m at home
On my own
Check my phone
Nothing though
Act busy
Order in
Pay TV
It’s agony

I may cry, ruining my makeup
Wash away all the things you’ve taken
And I don’t care if I don’t look pretty
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their heart is breaking

Tough girl
I’m in pain
It’s lonely at the top
Blackouts and airplanes
I still pour you a glass of champagne
Tough girl
Whose soul aches

I’m at home
On my own
Check my phone
Nothing though
Act busy
Order in
Pay TV
It’s agony

I may cry, ruining my makeup
Wash away all the things you’ve taken
And I don’t care if I don’t look pretty
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking

I wake up, I wake up, I wake up
I wake up, I wake up, I wake up
I wake up, I wake up, I wake up
I wake up, I wake up, I wake up,
I wake up alone

I may cry, ruining my makeup
Wash away all the things you’ve taken
And I don’t care if I don’t look pretty
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their heart is breaking

Big Girls Cry‘ ~Sia~

People cry for so many reasons……..an I end up crying at times when it’s the last thing I want to do. Take for example The Dodo on Facebook……….it has nice animal stories that always have a happy ending…….but…….I cry when I watch them. I cry when I see a poor animal in a situation that nothing should live in…..and I cry from the sadness of that….but then they show how it’s life changed and how happy it is now, and I cry harder. I finally realized that it’s not about any one emotion that brings me to tears, it all of them……when powerful enough. So in the end it’s tears of happiness. I cry when I’m frustrated and angry, too…..it’s just the way I am. When I was younger and life was different for me I didn’t cry at all, I kept it hid away in the darkness where, I found out later, it only grows and will eventually show itself in a more destructive form. So, I’m ok with crying often…it doesn’t make me weak, it makes me human.

Today I’m wearing the ‘Cracked Skull’ tattoo from Wild Roots, since Halloween is coming I thought it was time to break out of my comfort zone a little. I’m not a Halloween fanatic, at all. In fact I don’t do any kind of Halloween things, but I know there’s tons of people who like Halloween more than Christmas, and that’s okay. I just wish there was less scary movies on TV this time of year……I hate scary movies………you know what they do? They scare me! 😀 The tattoo comes in 3 ink tones and is compatible with Catwa, Lelutka mesh heads along with any head that’s Omega driven…plus there’s system layers, too. I’ve added the ‘Smokey Eyeshadow’ from Izzie’s.

I’m wearing the ‘Ringmistress Waistcoat’ from HOTDOG plus using a pose from the ‘Toothpick Poses’ set, also from HOTDOG.

I’m wearing the ‘F1124’ hair from tram, with the ‘Devil Horns Hair’ add on, which is a group gift, also from tram.

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

I’m at Hazardous for this picture.
