These Arms of Mine

These Arms of Mine

These arms of mine
They are lonely
Lonely and feeling blue
These arms of mine
They are yearning
Yearning from wanting you

And if you
Would let them
Hold you Oh how grateful I will be

These arms of mine
They are burning
Burning from wanting you
These arms of mine
They are wanting
Wanting to hold you

And if you
Would let them hold you
Ohh how grateful I will be

Come on, come on baby
Just be my little woman (yeah)
Just be my lover I need somebody,
(Somebody) To treat me right
(Ohh) I need your warm loving arms to hold me tight
And I need your tender lips too
Hold me, hold me

These Arms Of Mine‘ ~Otis Redding~

The topic of tattoos can be a touchy subject for some, but they’re pretty mainstream anymore, even I have one……well…..actually 2……but I don’t pay much attention to them anymore, they’re just there. When I say 2….I don’t mean sleeves that cover both my arms…..no…it’s just 2 little ones. I have a neighbour that’s got sleeves and he has long hair, wears a welding beanie and his dog is a Rottweiler named Kaos, knowing all that most people would think he’s definitely a biker, not that being a biker is a bad thing, of course! But he’s not…….his thing is rebuilding old cars, making rat rods and such…..I make it sound like I know what that is…but I really don’t. I just know he takes an old rusty hunk of junk and makes it a thing of beauty and that he’s one heck of a nice guy, what I’m getting at is that the days of tattoos being only for a certain type of person is gone. I say, ‘whatever floats your boat’, everyone’s different and no one has a right to judge, we all just happen to be drawing breathe at the same time in history, and since we’re all here we may as well make the most of it! And since it’s Friday that’s exactly what I’m going to do…..I’m going to stay up an hour later than usual and maybe have popcorn…..I’m livin’ large, my friends!

Vrir and I are wearing the ‘Dragon’ unisex tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio for this picture. I’m hoping you can sort out our limbs and see where one stops and the other begins. It’s lots of colour and dragons and eye catching lines, and it’s available now at the ULTRA EVENT, that starts tomorrow, December 15. Like I said, it’s unisex and compatible with all the major mesh bodies, including anything Omega driven.

I’m wearing the ‘G1020’ hair from tram, and black, no less. I haven’t worn hair this dark in a long time!

The ‘Tube Bra’ is from the ‘Diane’ set of lingerie from /erratic/.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body. I’ve added a bit of shadow from the ‘Satin Shadow’ pack from Buzzeri.

The pose is ‘Unseen Passion’ from Ana Poses and available now at The Men’s Department.

Zombie

Zombie

Another head hangs lowly
Child is slowly taken
And the violence caused such silence
Who are we mistaken

But you see it’s not me
It’s not my family
In your head, in your
Head they are fighting
With their tanks and their bombs
And their bombs and their guns
In your head,
In your head they are cryin’

In your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie
Hey, hey
What’s in your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie
Hey, hey, hey, oh
Dou, dou, dou, dou
Dou, dou, dou, dou
Dou, dou, dou, dou
Dou, dou, dou, dou

Another mother’s breakin’
Heart is taking over
When the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken

It’s the same old theme since nineteen-sixteen
In your head,
In your head they’re still fightin’
With their tanks and their bombs
And their bombs and their guns
In your head, in your head they are dyin’

In your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie
Hey, hey
What’s in your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie
Hey, hey, hey
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Hey, oh, ya, ya-a

Where has the year gone? One day I’m mowing the lawn, the next day I realize I haven’t done my Christmas shopping yet, and it’s mid December! Yea……I haven’t done my Christmas shopping, yet……I’ve started, and I’d be done if I only bought gifts for one person, but there’s a few more than that. I don’t think I’ve ever been this late, and to be honest, I still have no idea what to get. I’m going to end up being one of those people who wander around the store with a blank look hoping some miracle happens! But, there will be no miracles…….at least when it comes to shopping. I just need to think of something to get them…..that’s the whole thing……I have no idea. And when I ask, I either get a shrug, or ‘nothing’! That’s really helpful isn’t it. I guess with answers like that they can’t complain, no matter what I get them.

I’m showing off the ‘Sentiment’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear here. It’s an intricate design that looks great with anything that has a plunging neckline, and since it comes in black(seen here), henna, and white and it’s not seasonal, you can wear it anytime throughout the year. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything that’s Omega driven. It’s available now at the Vanity event, which runs until December 25.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

The Shiraz pose and chair are from Ana Poses.

I’ve put on a pair of undies for a bit of coverage here. They’re the ‘Cerise Panties’ from /erratic/.

And as always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Radar love

Radar Love

I’ve been drivin’ all night
My hand’s wet on the wheel
There’s a voice in my head
That drives my heel
It’s my baby callin’
Says: I need you here
And it’s a half past four
And I’m shifting gear

When she is lonely
And the longing gets too much
She sends a cable
Coming in from above
Don’t need no phone at all

We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a wave in the air
Radar Love

The radio’s playing some forgotten song
Brenda Lee’s “Coming On Strong”
The road has got me hypnotized
And I’m speeding into a new sunrise

When I get lonely
And I’m sure I’ve had enough
She sends her comfort
Comin’ in from above
Don’t need no letter at all

We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a line in the sky
Radar Love

No more speed, I’m almost there
Gotta keep cool now, gotta take care
Last car to pass, here I go
And the line of cars drove down real slow

And the radio played that forgotten song
Brenda Lee’s “Coming On Strong”
And the newsman sang his same song
One more radar love is gone

When I get lonely and I’m sure I’ve had enough
She sends her comfort, coming in from above
We don’t need no letter at all

We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a line in the sky
We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a thing that’s called
Radar Love

Radar Love‘ ~Golden Earring~

I’m having one of those days that the unexpected keeps happening……it’s nothing serious, just little things to keep me on my toes. I’ll take this time while nothing’s going on to post this and sit for awhile……enjoying some peace and quiet. Have a good one, everybody!

This gorgeous leg tattoo is definitely one of my favourite tattoos from Carol G Tattoo Studio. The beautiful fall tone roses are so incredibly detailed and with it peeking out from a high cut dress, the tattoo and long leg demands attention. It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies, including anything Omega driven and it’s available now at Cosmopolitan, but once this round is over it’ll be at Carol G Tattoo Studio main store.

This is the long version of the ‘Mia’ dress from Ison.

The beautiful ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I took this picture awhile ago, and forgot to write down the pose I used, which ticks me off because I hate not naming the pose makers….the unsung heroes of SL photography.

I’m at Black Bayou Lake, where anybody who’s anybody is seen! 😛

Halo

Halo

Remember those walls I built?
Well, baby they’re tumbling down
And they didn’t even put up a fight
They didn’t even make a sound
I found a way to let you in
But, I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now

It’s like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin’
It’s the risk that I’m taking
I ain’t never gonna shut you out!

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace
You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby, I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo, halo
I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo…
Halo, ooh ooh…

Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You’re the only one that I want
Think I’m addicted to your light
I swore I’d never fall again
But this don’t even feel like falling
Gravity can’t forget to pull me back to the ground again

And it’s like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin’
It’s the risk that I’m taking
I’m never gonna shut you out!

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace
You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby, I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo, halo
I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo…
Halo, ooh ooh…
I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo, halo
I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo…
Halo, ooh ooh…
Halo, ooh ooh…
Halo, ooh ooh, oh…

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace
You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby, I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo, halo, halo

Halo‘ ~LP~ (Beyoncè cover)

I’d never heard of LP until Jack Slade started covering one of her songs at his shows, and I’m completely in awe of her. Amazing vocals and she puts so much emotion into her songs. This isn’t my favourite song of hers, but it says exactly what I want it to say, today. I hope everyone’s having a great weekend, so far.

I’m wearing the ‘Queen Rose’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio today. I wanted something simple but beautiful to accompany my panties. Haha…doesn’t that sound rich…..like a pair of panties is a whole outfit….well….today…for me……it is! It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies and comes in 4 ink tones.

The ‘Tina’ panties are from Tachinni.

You can only see a little bit of the ‘Ascension’ hair from Stealthic. The gorgeous copper colour goes so well with my freckles.

My skin is ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Keely’ set of poses from Imitation.

Hope Springs Eternal

Hope Springs Eternal

Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never Is, but always To be blest.
The soul, uneasy, and confin’d from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.

‘An Essay on Man’ ~Alexander Pope~

This winter has seemed endless, but it’s actually passed in the blink of an eye! It’s still winter-like here, it’s Canada so spring doesn’t come easy, at least where I am, but the sun is shining and the high is supposed to be a balmy +1°C. How nice is that after the long cold spells we’ve had? It wasn’t any colder than lots of other winters, but each one has it’s own challenges. So far, we’ve only had a of couple major snowfalls but some fairly long periods of cold. The days are longer now and the sun has a bit of warmth to it, which gives me hope. It’s not like winter is hopeless, it’s not that bad, I just take it day by day and eventually I come out on the other side of it. This year I’m in a little bit of a panic with how close it is for spring work to begin, and I’m in no way ready for that! With only a couple weeks left in March, April is getting closer by the minute, and here I am writing a blog post, when I should be doing prep work for the coming spring! I keep putting it off, thinking I have lots of time, but if the next month goes as fast as the last one, I’m screwed! So, I guess I better get at it……..yea…..who am I kidding, there’s always tomorrow!

This is the first time taking pictures at Mystical Fae Forest, and I am so pleased with the outcome. I’m always saying how slow I am getting the shot I want, but for the first time in my blogging history, I got the shot in one take! Yes…this is the only picture I took of this outfit! Believe it….I’ve been having trouble believing it myself! 🙂

Anyway, I’m wearing the incredibly happy and spring like ‘Cary Dress’ from Just BECAUSE. It’s fitted for the Maitreya(Lara), SLink(Hourglass & Physique), and the Belleza(Isis & Freya) mesh bodies and comes in 26 colours or the fatpack which has 4 exclusive floral prints. The ribbon and panties are both colour change and the panties have an on/off toggle if you prefer to go commando! The ‘Cary Dress’ is available now at Collabor88, which runs until April 6.

The gorgeous ‘Daisies Tattoo’ is from Carol G Tattoo Wear. I don’t know about you, but there isn’t a release from Carol G that I don’t love, the detailing is incredible and they’re all so beautifully feminine! They’re compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, SLink, and TMP mesh bodies plus anything that’s Omega compatible.

I haven’t been a blonde in at least a couple years, but I’m trying to switch it up a bit. This is the VIP gift, ‘Tinsley’ from Truth Hair.

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. My eyes are from the ‘Nissa’ set from Zombie Suicide. I’ve added one of the 15 colours from the ‘Tiana Eye Make-up’ set from Zibska.

This is one of the 10 poses from ‘Pack 90’ from Overlow Poses.
