All Alone

All Alone

Someone falls to pieces
Sleeping all alone
Someone kills the pain
Spinning in the silence
To finally drift away
Someone gets excited
In a chapel yard
Catches a bouquet
Another lays a dozen
White roses on a grave

To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

Someone finds salvation in everyone
And another only pain
Someone tries to hide himself
Down inside himself he prays
Someone swears his true love
Until the end of time
Another runs away
Separate or united?
Healthy or insane?

To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

And even when you’ve paid enough, been pulled apart or been held up
With every single memory of the good or bad faces of luck
don’t lose any sleep tonight
I’m sure everything will end up alright

You may win or lose

But to be yourself is all that you can do
To be yourself is all that you can do

Be Yourself‘ ~Audioslave~

Check out this video, I love the song and it’s message. As I’ve grown older it’s the one thing I’ve learned and hope everyone gets to this point in life, the best thing you can do, for yourself and anyone around you, is to be yourself.

I’m going to get right to work here! First off is the pose! It’s from the ‘Amara’ set of poses from Imitation and available at the Souled Out event. The set contains 6 poses, all sexy, expressive, and bento! 😀

The ‘Bodycon Dress’ from Tres Blah is a shiny little piece of wearable perfection! It’s available at the current round of Collabor88. The August edition of C88 is the Birthday round, so expect lots of guest designers and tons of great things! All in line with the theme of ‘Plastic Fantastic’! Remember to reduce, reuse, and recycle! 😀

My shoes are also at the current round of Collabor88, they’re the ‘Stella Heels’ from Ingenue. They fit the SLink and Maitreya high feet and come in twelve colours.

The lovely ‘Accent Gift Chair’ from Nutmeg is available at the August round of Shiny Shabby, which opens today! It has oodles of sitting animations as does the complete set of ‘Kate’s Vintage Chairs’ set.

The WAKANA hair is one of my favourites from Argrace.

As always I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada, with the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya, and the high feet from SLink. I’ve added a touch of eye shadow from the ‘Essential Matte’ eye shadow from the ‘Spring Make Up Collection. It’s a gacha set from a collaboration of Veechi and Fetch! It’s a fully animated make up set, including HUDs for application to Catwa and Lelutka heads.

And last, but not least, I’m standing in the ‘Warehouse Loft Skybox’ from Schultz Bros. and exclusive to the August ’17 Builder’s Box.

Like a Stone

Like a Stone

And on I read until the day was gone;
And I sat in regret of all the things I’ve done;
For all that I’ve blessed, and all that I’ve wronged.
In dreams until my death I will wander on.

In your house I long to be;
Room by room, patiently,
I’ll wait for you there like a stone.
I’ll wait for you there alone, alone.

Like a Stone ~Audioslave~

My music tastes change regularly and I’m always on the lookout for artists that move me. A song has to have good lyrics, nothing else, just good lyrics. It’s not about the perfect 4 octave voice, if the song is well written it doesn’t matter to me about the voice singing it. As proven by my love for Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and to an extent Bruce Springsteen. Bruce really belted out some rough sounds back in his early years. But it’s all about the words, what they convey in emotion is what I’m looking for. There’s nothing more moving than a song sung by someone that feels it, regardless of the voice. As of late, my musical choices have been a lot of early 90’s grunge and some of the newer stuff by those artists. I never tire of Eddie Vedder, whether alone or with Pearl Jam. I listened to Soundgarden back in the grunge years, and although I lost track of Chris Cornell since then, his passing has made me appreciate his talent again. I’ve also been enjoying some Alice in Chains, Mother Love Bone, Temple of the Dog, and Nirvana. So, today it’s grunge, tomorrow it might be classic country or folk. But not current pop music…..never that!

I have a few things to point out to you today, starting with the ‘Bess’ hair from [KoKoLoReS]. The mid length, just-got-out-of-bed look is exactly what any hair lover needs. I’m so not into being perfectly styled and sprayed, so this is the perfect head of hair for me! ‘Bess’ is available at the August round of Hair-O-Logy, which runs until August 30.

The rush of the first few days of the opening of Collabor88 is past, so now you can shop at your leisure all of the guest designers celebrating C88’s 6th Anniversary. Stories&Co. by Flowey is one of the mainstays of the event and the ‘Debbie Bustier’ is this months exclusive. It comes in fifteen colours in vinyl, latex, and metals and is fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and ‘Freya and Isis’ from Belleza.

I’m wearing one of the nine selections in the ‘Riot Liners’ pack of eye make up from Veechi. It’s a bold eye liner but doesn’t look out of place anywhere. It’s available at the current round of Rewind which runs until September 10. I can’t believe I just wrote ‘September’!

The DWL Classic jeans are from Blueberry.

The ‘Moon Choker, gold’ is from Burial.

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

My eyes are from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ pack from Zombie Suicide.

There has been a few shake ups at Imitation, but I have no doubt that things will even out and there’ll be exciting things to come. Imitation has been releasing expressive and natural bento poses, some with great props, and I’m sure that will continue. This is from the ‘Isaiah’ set of poses, but is not available at this time. From today until August 18 everything in the store is 50% off, so make sure to stop in and get some deals.

I’m hanging out at the gas pump island at ‘Mother Road‘ at the Ludington sim. ‘Mother Road’ is inspired by the original ‘Mother Road’ sim of days gone by, and with my love for the desert, it’s a place I’ve been frequenting of late.

What’s Liz Doing?

What's Liz Doing?

It’s the middle of the day and Liz is leaving a motel room! She’s wearing a mini skirt, tank top, and heels, and isn’t smiling at all! What’s Liz been up to?

a.) she got a job delivering pizza

b.) her house is being fumigated and she’s living in a motel room for a week

c.) she was helping a guy with his taxes

d.) she’s rushing to get home so no one notices she was gone all night

e.) none of the above

As well as you know Liz, after almost 3 years and just about 700 posts blogging, what do you think is the most probable scenario here! 😀

To start off, lets talk about the pose! It’s from the ‘Fruit Juice A & B’ sets of poses from Le Poppycock and available at The Chapter Four. Each set has six natural, original, and relaxed poses all perfect for your pictures! I’ve been blogging poses from Le Poppycock for as long as I’ve been blogging and I’m always amazed at how natural and versatile they are. When I’m in doubt of what pose to use, Le Poppycock is my go to pose maker. The Chapter Four runs until the end of the month.

The Mesh Body Addicts Fair 2017 is on and it’s one of the most anticipated events of the the year. All the big names are there with their new releases and it’s one of my favourites! LEGAL INSANITY has the ‘Chloe Mini Skirts’ exclusive to the event this year and it’s super high hemline and built in panties make it a must have! It’s HUD driven with 15 colours and patterns with an additional five colours included when you purchase the fatpack. Also exclusive to the fatpack is the mix and match panties option. With the shortness of this skirt going commando isn’t an option, but you can mix and match the panties with the skirt! 😀 The Mesh Body Addicts Fair 2017 runs until August 21.

The Birthday round of Collabor88 has begun and with all the guest designers participating it’s super busy and very difficult to get in to. Ingenue has the ‘Stella Heels’ exclusive to C88, they’re SLink and Maitreya(high feet) compatible and come in an even dozen colours. I like the little peep toe and the bow at the ankle which really elongates the legs. I’m wearing the ‘Toffee’ pair for the SLink high feet. Collabor88 has just begun so I wish everyone luck in getting in for the incredible shopping at this early date! 😀

The ‘Betina Tank’ from Addams is one of my faves. It’s HUD driven with a bazillion colours and the border and laces can be coloured independently from the top and the laces also have a loose or knot option.

Also at the C88 Birthday round is the ‘Blair’ hair from [DUE]. It’s HUD driven, including a styling HUD with plenty of options to make it a little bit different every time you wear it. I love it’s short perky look.

And as usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada! I think you must know how much I love this look! ‘Luna” is on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’m also wearing the high feet from SLink.

I’m always on the lookout for new areas to take pictures, so when I saw ‘Mother Road‘ at the ‘Ludington’ sim, I was in love! I love the desert, so this ” lovingly crafted Nevada-esque back country, inspired by the original Mother Road sim” is one that I know will become a favourite for me. I know I’m not showing anything but the Mirage Motel 66, which is situated alongside the ‘Mother Road’, but there’s lots of areas to take pics to your hearts content! Paul Cutter, the owner of this fine establishement, is very welcoming and approachable, so it’s a nice comfortable atmosphere to stay as you long as you need to, to get the right shot! Which for me can sometimes take ‘awhile’! 😀

Feel the Heat

Feel the Heat

The sun burns down, making shimmery heat waves rise from the ground, and as I look up into the clear sky that’s more white than blue, I know that the coming night will be one that makes sleeping difficult! Unless, of course, you have air conditioning, of which I do not! Once the temperature is the same outside as in, I open up all the windows and try to catch a breeze to cool it off in here. I hope for a west wind for the evenings and night since that’s the direction my bedroom window faces, having a cool breeze wafting in can make it easier to get some sleep! I’m one of those people that needs to have covers over me while I sleep. Most nights it’s too warm for that….but dammit, I’m too scared of the monsters to sleep without the covers!

The July round of Collabor88 is open to the public, and Stories&Co. by Flowey has released the Reverse Vneck exclusively for it! It’s Maitreya and SLink mesh body compatible and comes with the regular busted version along with Vtech version, which has no bust influence at all, no matter your shape. It comes in fifteen colours, prints and solids, for great summer fashion!

Also new at C88 is the Summer Short Jeans with belt from Zenith. It’s a nice simple pair of shorts to just kick around, trying to stay cool this summer!

I love a little tattoo that brings attention to an area of my body that isn’t normally seen! The ‘Freedom’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear is 3D and really eye catching! I like a tattoo that makes a statement!

The ‘Skye Hair’ is from +elua+. This is from the blacks pack!

The Hipster Panties are one of my favourite things to sleep in when it’s hot! They’re exclusive for the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m wearing the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada! Along with the Lara mesh body from Mairreya.

The ‘back burner’ pose is from the ‘Loose Ends’ pose set from Le Poppycock.

I’m at home for this shot in front of my Mid Century bed from Dutchie!

Happy Fathers Day to All the Dad’s Out There!

Happy Fathers Day to All the Dad's Out There!

I want to dedicate this post to all the great Fathers out there, my own Dad included! I’m very lucky to still have both of my parents with me and I’m thankful each and every day for it! Dad has always been there for me! He’s seen me through the bad times and the worse times. He’s always been my fixer! It’s like he could always fix anything for me, whether it was something physical like a bicycle or some sort of trouble that only listening can help. He may not always understand me, but he always has the best intentions! I do wish he’d learn though, the one thing he always says to me if I start to get mad at something is, ‘Well, don’t get excited!’! I’ve told him, over and over again, that those words have NEVER worked to calm someone down and actually it only makes it worse! But, he continues to say it and I keep falling into the trap of getting more mad! 😀 I guess some things will never change! But, that’s not a bad thing, because we laugh at it after and I call him a B*****d and he calls me a B***h, and all is good again! I love my Dad, I’ll always feel like Daddy’s little girl, no matter how old I am!

I’ll start with the ‘Quinn’ hair from [KoKoLoReS] that I’m wearing here! This is from the Bayalage pack, which has 30 textures to choose from, like all packs from [KoKoLoReS]. I know I’m not blonde very often but I fell in love with this one! ‘Quinn’ is on sale now at the June round of Hair O Logy, which runs until June 30.

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear is the latest group gift and it’s beautiful in it’s simplicity! There’s just not enough love in this world, that’s one thing I know! The group is 100L$ to join, but there’s new group gifts released regularly, so it’s a very good deal!

The ‘Luma’ Tube Top from Just BECAUSE is available at the current round of Collabor88! I couldn’t resist the fatpack, so I’ll be wearing it regularly!

The ‘Malena Denim Shorts, high rise’ from Addams are going to be my go to shorts for the summer! They’re compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies and also come in standard sizes.

The Choker(B) is from C L A Vv. and part of the ‘My Edgy Look’ gacha set available now at Kustom9.

The whole look starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Which is rebranding and will be Avada. I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, too!

The manly pose is from Le Poppycock! I really like male poses, women’s poses never seem to have this pensive look!

I think I’ve got a thing with this little church at The Last Forever! I love this stretch of road and with this windlight it’s kind of eerie!
