Return to Innocence

Return to Innocence

That’s not the beginning of the end
That’s the return to yourself
The return to innocence
Love – Devotion
Feeling – Emotion
Love – Devotion
Feeling – Emotion
Don’t be afraid to be weak
Don’t be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence
If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself don’t hide
Just believe in destiny
Don’t care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don’t give up and use the chance
To return to innocence
That’s not the beginning of the end
That’s the return to yourself
The return to innocence
Don’t care what people say
Follow just your own way Follow just your own way
Don’t give up, don’t give up
To return, to return to innocence.
If you want then laugh
If you must then cry
Be yourself don’t hide
Just believe in destiny.

Return to Innocence‘ ~Enigma~

You’ll notice the lovely ‘Cadence Rings’ on my hand, the set, which is includes both left and right hands, is from Elle Boutique and it’s highly detailed with a HUD that’s full of options, including each ring customizable. They’re fitted for the SLink Dynamic hands and the bento hands from Maitreya. You’ll also find them on Market Place.

This cute little row boat is the main pose\prop from the ‘Still Waters’ sets of pose/props from Le Poppycock. There’s also flowers, petals, and a dog along for the posing if you want to add them. There’s ‘rezz’ and ‘add’ versions of all props, so you can use them anywhere your little heart desires.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

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

I Can Breathe Again

I Can Breathe Again

After one of the most stressful weeks of my life, I’m now able to smile again! After multiple(and I mean a ton) trips to the hospital with my Dad, I’m now so relieved that everything is under control and so far it looks like he’s going to be OK! It’s been one scare after another these last 8 days, but the light at the end of the tunnel that I saw yesterday has become a reality. There’s nothing that makes human mortality so real as having a loved one sick and not knowing what the outcome will be! So, today I lift a glass of …..um…ice water….and drink a toast to the powers that be for keeping Dad here for hopefully a long time to come. It’s scary, the thought of losing a parent has been one of my greatest fears, and I know one day I’ll have to face it…….but I’m going to make use of every day I have with them before then. And……thankfully it’s not Dad’s time yet!!

Ok…..so today, first and foremost is the ‘Morning Josie Bento RIngs’ from Slipper Originals and available now at The Underdog Event. I’m very open about my addiction to coffee, I do admit it, and I’ve heard that’s the first step in overcoming any addiction, but to be honest I really don’t want to kick this habit. I love(and need) my coffee, first thing in the morning, and anytime up to bedtime. It’s always coffee time to me. So, this set is compatible with the Maitreya(seen here) and Slink bento hands and they’re HUD driven with a ton of options, including left/right versions, texture change for each ring separately, 8 textures each for metals, stones, and crystals, plus on/off toggle. Here’s a closer look at them. The Underdog Event runs until February 16.

The manicure I’m wearing is from the ‘B&W’s Shiny’ applier from alme.. It’s an all-in-one HUD which is SO easy. No swapping out HUDs endlessly.

The ‘M118’ hair from .:CHEVEUX:. is just my style. It comes in a male or female version and is available at the winter round of The Seasons Story.

The ‘Laced Tops’ is from Blueberry and is available on Market Place for 1L$.

As always, my skin is ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The ‘Hi Baby’ pose is from Emination and available on Market Place.

One More Light

One More Light

Should’ve stayed, were there signs, I ignored?
Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
We saw brilliance, when the world, was asleep
There are things that we can have, but can’t keep

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

The reminders pull the floor from your feet
In the kitchen, one more chair than you need oh
And you’re angry, and you should be, it’s not fair
Just ’cause you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it, isn’t there

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

Well I do

One More Light ~Linkin Park~

Please forgive me if I seem to be dwelling on music and songs lately. but it’s winter and there’s really not much going on…..so I love to listen to music to while away the time. Is there anything better? I sit either at the computer or with my phone in the living room and scroll through all that YouTube has to offer. I don’t go for anything other than music videos though, although I know that YouTube’s a wealth of information about anything you might want to know. I’ve been know to search for directions on how to do this or that, I did find one video on how to fix a TV that was completely honest and up front. The first thing the guy says is, ‘If you’ve come here to find out how to fix your TV, you’re proving that you shouldn’t event try!’. I mean, just because you can find directions on how to do something doesn’t mean you should do it. I’m not against trying to fix things myself, heck I’ll give most things a try at least once, but I know that if there’s a doctor giving instructions on how to do a lobotomy, I probably shouldn’t be trying it! I do know my limits, although I have had some near misses and scares, the kind that Jackass would feature, of course.

I’m wearing the ‘Liz Bento Rings’ from Slipper Originals here, and I didn’t pick them to wear just because they’re named after moi! No, it’s just that they’re so pretty. Elle, of SO fame, has really found her niche in creating jewelry and accessories, her shoes have always been fabulous, but her accessories are incredible, with the large texture HUD with lots of metal and colour options and with various areas to customize, every set of rings, necklace, bracelet, or various other accessories can be customized to be exactly what you want. They fit the Maitreya bento hands and the SLink Dynamic hands.

The ‘Batra & Leok’ tattoo from Isuka is one gorgeous piece of artwork, and I am the canvas! This is the full body version and it’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus Omega compatible bodies, as well as classic avatars, just in case there’s still a few out there! You can also get it on Market Place.

The ‘G1113’ hair from tram is a new release and available at the current round of ~uber~.

They ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ is from [Vale Koer].

You can catch a glimpse of the ‘Two Initial Charm Bracelet, gold’ from Izzie’s.

The eyes are one of the ten selections from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ set from Zombie Suicide.

I’ve added one of the nine selections from the ‘Sultry Shadow’ set of eye shadow from Veechi here. It’s available now at District20.

And as always, my skin is ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, and available until December 7 at Appliquè. ‘Raine’ looks gorgeous on the ‘Lilo’ mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the Single Poses pack 16 from The Owl.

I’m sitting in front of the ‘Forgotten Places Fireplace’ from Cheeky Pea.

The house plants to the left are from {what next}.

I’m taking a day away from opinions, thoughts, and stories. Some days are best just to immerse yourself in your favourite music. And I give you…..Eddie Vedder singing ‘Black‘. This is an emotional performance following the passing of Chris Cornell.

The November round of Hairology is open and [KoKoLoReS] is there with 3 new designs…and one’s a gift to celebrate the second anniversary of the event! I’m wearing ‘Lois’ here using the ‘Bayalage’ HUD. ‘Lois’ is a fitted mesh style that includes a styling HUD with four styles, it’s nice and versatile, and with it’s great body and wave it’s all about wash and go hair. Hairology runs until November 30.

It’s the second weekend of the month and we all know that means It’s Monthly Midnight Madness! Slipper Originals is participating with two new items for this and I’m showing you what will be available at noon Saturday Nov. 11. The ‘Deidra Fingernail Rings’ are fitted for the Maitreya and SLink bento hands and when you grab this set free(if you’re one of the first 1500 avis) don’t forget to grab the add on HUD, at a nice low price, which makes it a complete set. The ‘Carys Bento Midi Rings’ will be available to the first 1500 avis starting tonight at midnight, along with an add on HUD for just a few lindens. And don’t forget ‘Last Chance’ on Sunday, in case you missed out earlier.

I made a few visits to the big sale at /erratic/ and at one of them I grabbed the ‘Eunice Bikini’. I’d been eyeing it up awhile ago and I’m so glad I waited…..50% off is such a good deal. I love the colours and perfect detailing that /erratic/ designs always have.

I can’t wait until the new round of Appliquè starts on November 15! That’s the day everyone can get their hands on the ‘Raine’ skin from Avada. I’ve been loving this skin for some time now and she’s a stunner. I love the full lips, perfectly groomed brows, and the delicate complexion. Gorgeous work, Stephanie! I’m wearing her on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the nine options of shadow from the ‘Fall Foiled Shadow’ set from Veechi.

This is pose 29 from MILA POSES.

I’m at the beautiful Salt Water sim for some sun, sand, and surf. It’s only November, but winter has already gotten old!
