As I Come Clean…

As I Come Clean...

Yes, I understand that every life must end, uh-huh
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, uh-huh
Oh I’m a lucky man, to count on both hands the ones I love
Some folks just have one, yeah, others, they’ve got none

Stay with me…
Let’s just breathe…

Practiced are my sins, never gonna let me win, uh-huh
Under everything, just another human being, uh-huh
I don’t wanna hurt, there’s so much in this world to make me bleed

Stay with me
You’re all I see…

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me

As I come clean…
I wonder everyday, as I look upon your face, uh-huh
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take, oh no

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave…

Did I say that I need you?
Oh, did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
And I come clean, ah…

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
Hold me ’til I die
Meet you on the other side…

Just Breathe‘ ~Eddie Vedder~

Everyday could be an Eddie Vedder day, for me, but I try to find new songs and artists that I haven’t heard to expand my musical horizon. This is one of my favourites of EV’s and I may have shared it already, but I don’t care…..it’s worth a repeat.

So, personally I’ve had a difficult week with being over emotional and somewhat down….well….not somewhat…….just down. With all the bad news on TV I’ve pretty much stopped watching it, I limit the amount of news I read and hear to just once a day, that way I don’t get caught up in the anxiety and negativity of it all. Then, the news of a crash on a highway in my part of Canada hits, and I’m struck with how precious life is. I think this accident has been covered nationally, it’s severity completely shocking. My heart goes out to all of the people affected by this. In so many small towns in Canada the hockey team is something that everyone supports and follows, and the Humboldt Broncos have been national champions in the past, and hopefully will be again. It’s events like this that everyone should look at their life and cherish everyone and everything in it. You can never say ‘I love you’ too much, or appreciate this world we live in enough. This life we live is fleeting, and with the finite amount of time each of us has, it’s much too short to not live….really live!!

So, the picture today is just something I took yesterday while pondering life. I tend to be drawn to sad poses but I wanted something a little lighter and the ‘Katyusha Elegant Armchair’ from RK Poses is perfect. This is the female half of the couples pose in this chair and it’s thoughtful without being sad, I think. I’m just resting…..calming my mind and letting my worries go. The chair is available now at Shiny Shabby until April 15.

The KOMA hair is from Argrace.

I Won’t Give Up

I Won't Give Up

When I look into your eyes
It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
Well, there’s so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you’ve come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

Well, I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

And when you’re needing your space
To do some navigating
I’ll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

‘Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We’ve got a lot to learn
God knows we’re worth it
No, I won’t give up

I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not, and who I am

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up, I’m still looking up.

Well, I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)
God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)
God knows we’re worth it (and we’re worth it)

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

I Won’t Give Up‘ ~Jason Mraz & Daryl Hall~

Yea…another song for you! I’m sorry for not having anything to say! I sit and try to think of something to write about, preferably happy, and I come up empty every time. It’s hard to write from the heart and be happy, when the heart isn’t happy. I refuse to bring everyone down with dark thoughts, so this is what I’m left with. In all honesty, I’d love to put a song with every picture, I love music and most of my pictures have a mood that’s perfect for certain songs. I’m standing atop a rocky cliff at Isle of May, it looks like I’m considering taking the plunge, but as one friend said, ‘don’t bother….wearing that gown will just make a parachute’ and I’ll float down to land on the shore below. So, I’ll stand out here in the wind, deep in thought and trying to keep dark thoughts at bay! Please be warned that you may be faced with another song for the next post. Until something shifts in my thinking, I’m sorry to say that more songs are on the way. I hope I don’t run out, YouTube does have a finite number of songs! 🙂

The beginning of April has brought with it a new round of FaMESHed, and Just BECAUSE is there with the gorgeous ‘Evelyn’ gown. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Physique & Hourglass), and the Belleza(Isis & Freya) mesh bodies and comes in 32 colours, with each colour being HUD driven to change straps and beads. The beads also have an on/off toggle. Maybe just get the fatpack, it’s usually what I do! FaMESHed runs until April 27.

The ‘KOHAKU’ hair is from Argrace.

I’m wearing the ‘Raine Gen 2’ skin, in tone 210 from Avada, and available now at The Makeover Room, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Heartache’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.

What You Do To Me!

What You Do To Me!

When I feel so all alone, you’re there for me, comforting me. The days go by and you are my constant companion, always in my thoughts. I crave you, morning, noon, and night. Always wanting to hold you close and feel your warmth. You are my strength when I’m beaten and when I’m happy you make the day complete. I’d be lost without you, you’re like a drug I can’t kick, even if I wanted to. You’re a part of me and I’ll do anything in my power to keep you with me, always! *The End* That’s my love story, it’s touching, really……..I’ve felt this way for a very long time. There’s been times we’ve been apart and it almost killed me, I felt so empty. My breakfasts were cold and unsatisfying and my afternoons just weren’t the same. This is how much I love my…….coffee, yes……I’m talking about coffee. I can’t deny it……..we were meant to be together! 😀

Ok, that was as cornball as it can get, and I apologize for it. But, as I sit here drinking my genuine Tim Hortons coffee, it just came to me how addicted I am. Gawd…that’s pitiful! Anyway, I’m here in the abandoned pool at Tralala’s Diner, again! This place fascinates me to no end. I’m here on my knees, and I cringed the whole time I was in this pose, thinking about my poor knees. So, just ignore the thought of poor Liz’s legs all scraped and bleeding. I put this outfit on and wasn’t planning on this but here I am, wearing the ‘Gery Strapless Top’ and the ‘Malya Leather Skirt’, both from LEGAL INSANITY. They’re both exclusive to the Whore Couture Fair 8, which only runs another couple days, so you better hurry! Which reminds me, I plan on stopping in one more time to make sure I got all the goodies. The top and skirt are sold separately with both coming in 5 colours, with the fatpacks including 3 bonus colours and the skirt/panty combo having colour change options. They’re both compatible with the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis) mesh bodies. Remember, Whore Couture Fair 8 runs until March 31st.

I can’t believe this tattoo!! Isn’t it something, going right up the neck like this? This is the ‘Confession Tattoo’ from Carol G Tattoo and it comes in black, white, and coloured! I’m wearing the black ink which includes 4 ink tones and is compatible with major mesh bodies and the Lelutka and Catwa mesh heads. The neck is smoothly done, and with appliers for both the head and body there’s no question about coverage. It’s available now at Cosmopolitan.

You can see the soles of the ‘Galla Heels’ from Glamistry. They’re my go-to heels for when I’m wearing a super short skirt….it looks like I have legs up to there! 😀

The hair is ‘WAKANA’ from Argrace.

Ok, I have to admit my love for these kinds of poses. It’s kind of aloof and uncaring with a touch of attitude thrown in and it’s from the ‘Female Greed Pack, knees’ from Clix Poses. The set includes 6 poses(plus mirrors), with one of them being exclusive to the ‘Greed Pack’, and I’m all about a greed pack! 😛

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Profile Perv’n

Profile Perv'n

Ha……I love reading profiles! Just so you know, if you see me somewhere….I’m probably reading your profile as you’re looking at me. I can’t resist, there’s so much entertainment in it, and some very creative people out there. I have to admit mine needs some work, I’ve never put much in it, but I have to change that. There are lots of profiles with no information at all in them, then there’s the all-business profiles. There’s the ‘I pledge my love to you’ picks and the links to te persons favourite sims and stores! I do read the all-business links, because I’ve found some amazing places that way, so please share those kinds of things in you profile. The ‘pledge my love to you’ picks don’t do much for me, they’re usually over mushy and I’m just not into that. I don’t think anyone has one of those for me in their profile, so I’m happy about that. But, I do show up in my sister, Gillian Galicia‘s, profile! A couple of times! The great sister that she is added me to her picks back in 2012 when I was a noob, picture and all. Then, the other day she thought our conversation deserved saving, so there I am again! But this time, when I’m all meshed up and looking good…she doesn’t add a picture of me to it! WTF, sista? So, I’m going to see what dated pic from 2012 I can come up with and I’ll jot down a few lines about our escapades in Second Life, she has managed to capture a couple of my more questionable conversation topics in her profile, so I say ‘tit for tat’, wonderful Sis o’mine!

I look a little anguished in the picture, and I didn’t set out to do that, it just kind of happened. I’ve been struggling with a downer of a mood for a few days and I guess it’s showing! But, I’m wearing the super good looking ‘Jacket Shirt Set’ that’s available at the fame femme main store. The jacket comes in 10 colours and can be worn with or without the top. The top’s HUD driven with 6 colours and the cuffs and part of the hood are also colour change with 3 options. It’s exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body, has wonderful detailing and with spring officially starting tomorrow, jacket weather is always a possibility.

The ‘DWL Classic Jeans’ from Blueberry are one of my all time faves.

The MAYU hair is from Argrace.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’m using the ‘Closed Eyes’ appliers for the Catwa heads from Izzie’s here.

You can’t really see it in detail, but the ‘Beetle Pearl Choker’ in gold is from Burial.

I was out pose shopping the other day and came across Korper Poses! I found a few packs that will easily suit my needs and they were very reasonably priced. This is from the ‘Leaning Bento’ pack of poses, which contains 6 poses with pose balls included.

I’m at Tralala’s Diner here, perched high atop the ruins!

Guaranteed

Guaranteed

On bended knee is no way to be free
Lifting up an empty cup I ask silently
That all my destinations will accept the one that’s me
So I can breath
Circles they grow and they swallow people whole
Half their lives they say goodnight to wive’s they’ll never know
Got a mind full of questions and a teacher in my soul
So it goes
Don’t come closer or I’ll have to go
Holding me like gravity are places that pull
If ever there was someone to keep me at home
It would be you
Everyone I come across in cages they bought
They think of me and my wandering
But I’m never what they thought
Got my indignation but I’m pure in all my thoughts
I’m alive
Wind in my hair, I feel part of everywhere
Underneath my being is a road that disappeared
Late at night I hear the trees
They’re singing with the dead
Overhead
Leave it to me as I find a way to be
Consider me a satellite for ever orbiting
I knew all the rules but the rules did not know me

Guaranteed‘ ~Eddie Vedder~

Yes, it’s an Eddie Vedder day! This song is one of my favourites from the ‘Into the Wild’ soundtrack. I thought of it because of the line referring to the wind in my hair. I’m not sure why the thought of wind in my hair seems so freeing to me, because on most days it drives me crazy. I have naturally curly hair in real life, not big curly curls just gentle ones, and the wind can play havoc with them making it all knot up. So, mainly I stick with a ponytail and a hat! Yes, I’m sure most of you are now envisioning me as the stereotypical farm girl in jeans, a plaid shirt and a hat with a ponytail. I won’t try to convince you otherwise, I’ll let you go on seeing me however you want to. 😀 But here in Second Life today I have long hair, blowing gently in the wind, while it’s caressing my skin and the sun warming me slightly in it’s lessening intensity of the late evening. There’s something calming about nature that my brain and body needs, grounding me to the very basics of life and putting the disturbances of the world far out of my reality. Ahhh…….have a good Saturday everyone. ♥

So here’s the deal! I love this bed, wanted to showcase it well, and decided what better way than to set it outside alone on a hilltop, with me on it! You can’t miss it, can you? This is the ‘Cape Hatteras Bed’ by Galland Homes! This bed, in all it’s versatile glory, comes in PG and Adult versions with the PG containing 35 single and couples poses(bento included) and the Adult version has 71 animations including singles, couples, and adult animations, to spice your SL up a a bit. The cover, fold and headboard are all texture change on touch via drop down menu and it’s simple styling makes it able to go with lots of different decor. It’s available now at the March round of FaMESHed, which runs until March 27.

And as for my simple outfit? I’m wearing the ‘Wet Dress, peach’ from Gabriel. It’s pretty sexy!

The ‘HARUKA’ hair is from Argrace.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is ‘penlinio iii’ from Grafica Poses.

I’m at the always pretty Salt Water sim for this shot.
