Avada

Perfect

Made a wrong turn, once or twice
Dug my way out, blood and fire
Bad decisions, that’s alright
Welcome to my silly life

Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood
Miss “No way, it’s all good”, it didn’t slow me down
Mistaken, always second guessing, underestimated
Look, I’m still around

Pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect
Pretty pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you’re nothing
You’re f*ckin’ perfect to me!

You’re so mean, when you talk, about yourself you were wrong
Change the voices in your head, make them like you instead
So complicated, look how big, you’ll make it
Filled with so much hatred, such a tired game
It’s enough! I’ve done all I can think of
Chased down all my demons, I’ve seen you do the same

Oh, pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you’re nothing
You’re f*ckin’ perfect to me

The whole world’s scared, so I swallow the fear
The only thing I should be drinking is an ice cold beer
So cool and limed and we try, try, try
But we try too hard and its a waste of my time
Done looking for the critics ’cause there everywhere
They don’t like my jeans, they don’t get my hair
Exchange ourselves and we do it all the time
Why do we do that, why do I do that?
Why do I do that?

Oh, pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you’re nothing
You’re f*ckin’ perfect to me!
You’re perfect, you’re perfect

Perfect‘ ~Pink~

Just a song today, it’s another cold gloomy day here, where the snow won’t melt and we’re a little over 2 months to the longest day! Then they start getting shorter again! That thought alone makes me want to run away, very far away!

Today I’m out on the beach at Salt Water, the seagulls are dipping and diving above me and the warm ocean breeze feels so nice! I’m looking pretty hot too, all because of the ‘Britta Kini’ from [QE] Designs, which is available now at the Black Fair. It’s a strappy little number that shows off curves and accentuates the positive! It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza(Isis & Freya) mesh bodies and the HUD contains 6 vibrant colour combinations. The Black Fair runs until April 20.

So, about this tattoo! There’s a few things in this life that I have a ‘thing’ for, and one of them is turtles and tortoises, well I guess that’s 2! 😀 There’s a story that goes along with why I’m enthralled by them that I won’t get into at this time, but I’ll just add that I do have a turtle tattoo in real life! So, when Sandowl released this beauty of a sea turtle tattoo in the Wild Roots main store I was more than thrilled! This is so gorgeous, with intricate detailing, perfect placement and comes in a black and white(seen here) and a colour version. The colours being soft muted tones perfect for summer! It’s compatible with the big 3 mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven along with a tattoo layer for classic avatars.

The ‘HARUKA’ hair is from Argrace.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Raine Gen2’ skin in tone 210 from Avada, it’s available now at The Makeover Room. It’s worn on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is pose 29 from .MILA..

She's So High

She’s blood, flesh and bone
No tucks or silicone
She’s touch, smell, sight, taste, and sound
But somehow I can’t believe
That anything should happen
I know where I belong
And nothing’s going to happen, yeah

‘Cause she’s so high
High above me
She’s so lovely
She’s so high
Like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, or Aphrodite
Da da-da da da
She’s so high
High above me

First class and fancy free
She’s high society
She’s got the best of everything
What could a guy like me
Ever really offer?
She’s perfect as she can be
Why should I even bother?

‘Cause she’s so high
High above me
She’s so lovely
She’s so high
Like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, or Aphrodite
Da da-da da da
She’s so high
High above me

She calls to speak to me
I freeze immediately
‘Cause what she says sounds so unreal
‘Cause somehow I can’t believe
That anything should happen
I know where I belong
And nothing’s going to happen, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

‘Cause she’s so high
High above me
She’s so lovely
She’s so high
Like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, or Aphrodite, oh yeah
She’s so high
High above me

She’s So High‘ ~Tal Bachman~

So, what’s the theme for today’s post, you ask? At this time, I have no idea. But I’m going to just keep typing and hope one develops. I chose this song yesterday while I was doing my usual YouTube song hunt. I was looking for a song that spoke to me, and this one did! It’s not the actual message that the song has, although sweet it is, I disagree with it. No one is above anyone else, regardless of looks, social standing, or wealth. Oh, I’m not saying I don’t feel this way with some people, I’ve been known to go all fangirl with some Second Life residents. Whether it’s designers, bloggers, or photographers I admire, I get all nervous if I see someone in-world and they say hello! Because I guess I’m a familiar name on Flickr to some, who knew! 😀 Oh, I’m not saying anyone goes fangirl with me, I’m nowhere near that caliber of anything, but I’ve had people say hello because we’re fellow Flickrites. It’s like Flickr is a community all on it’s own and when I walk through the neighbourhood everyone says Hello to each other. For an introvert like me that’s kind of scary, I’ve been known to go the long way around in RL just to avoid having to run into someone I know, but in SL and the Flickrverse I rather enjoy it, it’s always a nice day for a chit chat while out and about!

The Spring Flair Fair is on and Elle Boutique has released the exclusive ‘Eden Ankle Bracelet’ for the occasion. It curls beautifully around the ankle while remaining casual for outings during the warm spring days! It’s fitted for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh high feet and the HUD includes 7 metals and 14 stone and diamond colours. Plus it’s SL materials enabled for extra shine! The Spring Flair Fair runs until April 28.

I’m wearing the anklet on the SLink high feet paired with the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. My skin is tone 210 from the newly tweaked Gen 2 skins from Avada.

I’m using one of the 12 poses included in the ‘Harmonie Chair’ from DS’ELLES, which is available at the Pose Fair.

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.

Square Peg

‘Why fit in when you were meant to stand out?’

~Dr. Seuss~

I’ve never fit in, it’s a fact that I spent many years trying to prove wrong. This fact was the most difficult to deal with when I was young, I just kept trying to fit in, but was constantly alone in my own space. And the sad part about that is, I always thought it was something I had to fix, there was something wrong with me that made me less worthy of being alive in this world. I think society has embraced individuality more now than when I was young, but with bullying such a huge issue, I know that it’s still almost impossible to feel like you belong. It’s not the people that talk about it being OK to be different that do the bullying, it’s everyone living in the round hole that expect us square pegs to fit in. I’ve come to embrace the fact that I don’t fit in, I mean, do I really want to fit in with the people that I don’t even like? No……I choose my friends on the basis of who they are, I accept their differences and want them to feel completely themselves with me. Life’s too short to worry about fitting in and being someone you’re not, be free and be who you want to be, and smile if people look at you funny…….because they just don’t get it! 🙂

I’m wearing the newest release from Tres Blah here. It’s the ‘All Tied Up Blouse’ available now at ~uber~. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass & Physique), and the Belleza(Isis & Freya) mesh bodies and comes in 15 colours.

One of my favourite hair is ‘G1224’ from tram.

The ‘Lila Jeans’ are a fairly new release from Blueberry. I’m rockin’ that butt that Blueberry’s known for. 😀

I want to mention that the ‘Raine’ skin from Avada has been tweaked and I’m super excited about the changes. It’s available now at The Makeover Room, so stop in and have a look. I’ll be doing a close up of my face in the next post to show you how beautiful I am! 😛 I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The ‘Model 823’ pose is from Manifeste and available at the Pose Fair! I absolutely adore the Pose Fair!

I’m at one of my favourite places for this shot, Tralala’s Diner.

Enigma

Smell your skin
Feel your breath
You on my side
I couldn’t resist
I hope I’ll understand some day
What’s the meaning of this crazy game
It is real and pure
T.N.T. for the brain
If there’s no pain
Rules are still the same
I’m with you, just lead me
I’m ready to play
T.N.T. for the brain
Don’t be scared and have no fear
I will show you what it means
If there’s no pain
Rules are still the same
I’m with you, just lead me
I’m ready to play
T.N.T. for the brain
What you feel is insane
It is love and not a game
T.N.T. for the brain

T.N.T. For The Brain‘ ~Enigma~

Today I’m all about summer casual with the ‘Addy Shorts’ from LEGAL INSANITY and available at the current round of Cosmopolitan. They come in 5 colours and are fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Freya & Isis) mesh bodies. These cutoff(that’s what we always called them, lol) shorts are a snug fit with a nice round pinchable butt and the low rise waistline accents those curves. This round of Cosmopolitan runs until April 7.

The ‘Akira Tank’ is a new release from PSEUDO and available at the current round of ~uber~.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin from Avada, and I was so surprised to find out it’s been tweaked and updated! I’ll be giving you a much closer look at my beautiful face in the coming days. It’s on the ‘Lilo’ bento head form Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This in one of the 4 poses from ‘Singles Poses Pack 4’ from The Owl.

I was at the gorgeous ‘Isle of May‘ sim and ran into a whole bunch of familiar names. Always nice to see familiar flickr names and faces and take the opportunity to meet in-world.
