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.

Who Do You Love?

Who Do You Love?

I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire, I got a cobra snake for a necktie
A brand new house on the road side, and it’s a-made out of rattlesnake hide
Got a band new chimney put on top, and it’s a-made out of human skull
Come on take a little walk with me baby, and tell me who do you love?
Who do you love?

Around the town I use a rattlesnake whip, take it easy baby don’t you give me no lip
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

I’ve got a tombstone hand and a graveyard mind, I’m just twenty-two and I don’t mind dying
Who do you love?
Yeah, who do you love?
Ah, who do you love?

Now Arlene took a-me by my hand, she said lonesome George you don’t understand
Who do you love?
The night were dark and the sky were blue, down the alleyway a house wagon flew
Hit a bump and somebody screamed, you should’ve heard what I’d seen
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Yeah who do you love?
Ah, who do you love?

Yeah, I’ve got a tombstone hand in a graveyard mine
Just twenty-two baby I don’t mind dying
Snake skin shoes baby put them on your feet
Got the good time music and the Bo Diddley beat
Yeah, who do you love?
Ooh, who do you love?

I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire, I got a cobra snake for a necktie
A brand new house on the road side, and it’s made out of rattle snake hide
Got a band new chimney put on top, and it’s made out of human skull
Come on take a little walk with me child, tell me who do you love?
Yeah, who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love
Oh

Who Do You Love?‘ ~George Thorogood~

I’m sorry to say I have no words of wisdom to share with you, again. I have to remember that when I have a somewhat interesting thought I should write it down so I remember to talk about it in my next post……..because when I sit here and start to think about it…..my mind’s blank! Or…..as my Mum used to say, ‘you’re just sitting with your thumb up your bum and your mind in neutral’. Another one of her sayings was….when I reached out and stole something that she was cutting up at the kitchen counter is, ‘Do that again and you’ll pull back a bloody stump!’. Now that I think about it it’s kind of drastic……but it must have worked….I still have both my hands! 😀

I’m standing at Hazardous in my ‘Tailored Suit’ from Hotdog and using a pose from the ‘Toothpick’ set of poses, also from Hotdog. The ‘I0116’ hair is from tram.

One

One

Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same
Will it make it easier on you now
You got someone to blame
You say

One love
One life
When it’s one need in the night
One love
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you don’t care for it

Did I disappoint you
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well, it’s

Too late
Tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We’re one, but we’re not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it’s all I got

We’re one but we’re not the same
Well we hurt each other
Then we do it again

You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can’t be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters
Brothers

One life
But we’re not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other

One
One

One ~U2~

I don’t think I’ve ever featured a song from U2 and I thought it’s about time I did. There’s so many good ones to choose from but this one is haunting in it’s honesty. With the huge divide between people that’s been growing in the world this song should remind everyone that yes, we’re all different…….but we’re all the same, too. If I think about what the world has become too much I feel an overwhelming sadness about the hate and divisiveness that’s gotten so out of control……..but I refuse to be taken in with this way of thinking, life is too short to hate and if everyone could realize this, what a happier world it would be. That is all……now let’s carry on with our day and remember to choose love instead of hate! ♥

For this picture I’m wearing the ‘Candy Jacket & Top’ and the ‘Ela Shorts’, both from Blueberry. I rarely wear long hair but the ‘Fleeting’ hair from Stealthic is one of my favourites and the ‘Melissa’ heels are from **UTOPIA@Design**.

The pose is from the ‘Effortless’ set by FOXCITY and I’m at Grauland for the picture.

Wake Me Up When September Ends

Wake Me Up When September Ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Like my father’s come to pass
Seven years has gone so fast
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars
Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost
Wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Ring out the bells again
Like we did when spring began
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars
Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost
Wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Like my father’s come to pass
Twenty years has gone so fast
Wake me up when September ends
Wake me up when September ends
Wake me up when September ends

Wake Me Up When September Ends‘ ~Green Day~

Whew…..what a day it’s been! It’s the last day of September……and I thought I’d have to wait another year before I could use this song for a post….and there’s no way I’d remember to do it a year from now. Hell, in a year I might not even remember my name! Today has been a long one, it started snowing yesterday and it snowed all day today, and most of the day I had no power. I had no heat in here, which did get chilly by this afternoon, and the cloudy gloomy day passed without me even being aware of it. I read a book and started a second one, I ventured out for a coffee where my sister had a generator running so I could at least have a cup of coffee, and all along I thought about getting this post done, using this song! Well………that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but still. 😀

So, the September round of ~uber~ is undway and *Just BECAUSE* has a new and exclusive release out for the occasion. This is another AnnieRose collaboration, in which Annie teams up with her daughter to create something special, and this time it’s the ‘Riley Dress’, just in time for fall and Halloween. The dress is cut high up the sides and with a deep V neck and an interesting hem on the sleeves it really is unique. There’s a print pack available plus the prints for the skirt are a part of the fatpack too. It has built in panties and also comes in 26 colours for the skirt and 3 each for the top and panties. It fits the major mesh bodies, including Legacy. ~uber~ runs until October 22.

Also at ~uber~ is the ‘I0914’ hair from tram.

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

I’m using a pose from the ‘Smoking Pipe Bento Poses’ and ‘Smoking Pipe’ from KOPFKINO.

I’m at Grauland for this picture.
