Ooohh Ooooh Oooh Oooh

Ooohh Ooooh Oooh Oooh

Do you hear me, I’m talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I’m trying
Boy, I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

They don’t know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I’ll wait for you, I promise you, I will

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we’re in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I’m sailing through the sea
To an island where we’ll meet
You’ll hear the music fill the air
I’ll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through the trees
Move so pretty you’re all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I’m lucky we’re in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Lucky‘ ~Jason Mraz (feat. Colbie Caillat)

I bet you’re wondering what the heck’s with the title for this post. Since finding the right title for a new post is one of the hardest things to do, I started using the name or a phrase from the song I’m featuring. Well, the name of the song is ‘Lucky’ which didn’t thrill be and while scanning the lyrics of it nothing really jumped out at me. So, instead of trying to say something profound, I opted for the more generic ‘ooohh’ part of the lyrics. I wish it had had some ‘mmmm’s’ or some ‘uh huh’s’, but the ‘ooooh’ will have to do. You know people have written blog posts about naming blog posts, giving all kinds of hints on making it say what you want. In the beginning of my blogging I’d spend more time thinking of a title for it than it would take me to write the whole thing, slurls and all. I do try to make it mean something, but there’s no promises, as you can see by the title of this one! Ooohh oooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, etc etc!

I know the month has has been speeding by and I’m just now telling you about the ‘Hester Top’ from *Just BECAUSE*, but I’m hoping the saying ‘better late than never’ holds true in this instance. This top is available until June 6 at Collabor88 and with the hot weather upon us, at least in my part of the world, a cool top is needed. It comes in tons of colours with the fatpack including 26 colours plus 4 bonus prints, the ruffle has an on/off toggle and it’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique) and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies.

The super versatile ‘Lila Jeans’ are from Blueberry. The fatpack includes tons of colours for the denim and metals, plus both ‘cutie’ and ‘Blueberry’ bootie options.

The ‘Lakia’ hair is from +elua+, this is from the ‘cafe’ pack of colours.

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 from Maitreya. I wanted to look kind of happily dreamy for this one, so I’m putting my animations HUD from Catwa to good use.

I got into Shiny Shabby on the first day and the ‘Old Tricycle’ in green, from Nutmeg, caught my eye. It has male and female poses made by RK Poses, but of course I have to be different and use a pose from the ‘Single Poses set 16’ from The Owl.

I’m at the always lovely Neverfar sim for this picture. I’m a group member to make rezzing possible.

Pennywise, from IT by ~Stephen King~

I really really dislike clowns….I don’t think there’s anything funny or happy about them. To me, they’re just flippin’ freaky! I haven’t seen the remake of the movie ‘IT’ from Stephen King’s book of the same name. As a rule I don’t watch scary movies, I guess you could say I scare easily. I’ve read the book though and although not my favourite SK book, it is a good one! As if clowns needed more proof that they can’t be trusted….I think clowns have always had a dark side and this just makes them plain evil. After thinking about it for a couple minutes I don’t think that the clowns from a rodeo are creepy, they’re just doing their job and actually have made a sport out of it, the bullfighters in Spain could learn a thing or two from the bullfighters here! There’s no blood, unless it’s the guy’s fighting the bull, and the bull does have the upper hand! Still, clowns generally have a bad reputation and I’m not sure it can be turned around…….I mean, clowns didn’t get this reputation from nothing happening!

A new round of anyBODY has begun and LEGAL INSANITY has the ‘Liza Ripped Jeans’ exclusive to the event. They come in three colours of denim and are sold individually or in a fatpack and the chains can be silver or gold, or removed all together! I’ve always loved LEGAL INSANITY jeans and these don’t disappoint. They have it all…perfect butt, bare skin, and perfect detailing! This round of anyBODY runs until October 15.

The ‘Fight Til the End’ Tolman tank is from Vinyl and exclusive to the ForMax event. This is a fundraiser for a fellow SL’er who has come upon some difficult times. It runs until October 10.

The ‘July’ shoes are from JuJu and are fitted for the SLink, Maitreya and Belleza high feet. There’s an added anklet that I’m not wearing here.

The ‘Lexie’ hair from +elua+ is part of the October round of PocketGacha. This is a great monthly stay-at-home event that makes playing gacha so easy! This is the cafe colour and the gacha includes ‘Lexie’ and ‘Lakia’ hair each with six common and one RARE to play for. The current round of PocketGacha runs until October 14. You can get more info on PocketGacha here.

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

This pose it ‘RockIt’ from the ‘Photobooth 2’ set of poses from [KoKoLoReS]. They’re bento enabled for the face and hands.

I’m at Arranmore for this picture, and once I had my shot, I was outa there! Spooky!

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!

I Completely Get It!

I Completely Get It!

But, I just can’t watch anymore! I’m an overly emotional person, self admittedly, so things bother me, a lot! So, what I’m talking about ‘getting’, is the advertisements to help the starving and sick, and bring awareness to animal welfare! I just can’t watch, not because I don’t want to know about it, but because I care too much about these issues. There’s something inside of me that breaks a little bit every time I see people or animals in distress. If I could save all people and animals from living a life of hell, I would, in a heartbeat! But, I can’t, so if I watch too many of the ads, it’s upsetting for me. I’m sorry for the suffering that goes on in the world, but it won’t be solved by me crying about it. So I say a little prayer for everyone, may the pain and agony end for all who suffer, and everyone live with love in their heart!

KRALUS has released the Jenara outfit, just in time for seasonal parties! It includes the slimming suede skirt with great details on the front, along with the sweater, and boots! The outfit comes in four colour combinations and is fitted for the major mesh bodies. The boots are Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza compatible. Check out KRALUS on Market Place or the main store.

I’m wearing one of the six colours of eyeshadow from the Duotones pack from alaskametro<3! It’s compatible with Omega, Catwa, and Lelutka mesh heads and also the classic avatars.

WE♥ROLEPLAY runs until the end of the month, so there’s still time to pick up the group gifts that are under the trees at the four corners of the area. The Malika Scarf is one of the gifts there, it’s from A:S:S and it goes perfectly with this top. It’s HUD driven with six colours, and gold and silver versions.

And speaking of gifts, On9 has a whole bunch of gifts for group members out! Just join the On9 group and click on the gold stars in each booth! HAYSURIZA has the Mangolia Bangle and Earrings set out as their gift. It’s not a close view but maybe you can zoom in on flickr to get a better look.

The Celeste hair is from +elua+.

I’m wearing the Alex mesh head with the Alexa skin in Honey tone from Sinful Curves. I also use the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the elegant1 hands from SLink.

The pose is from the Be Brave set of poses from don’t freak out!.

I’m at It All Starts With a Smile on the Heavenly Groove sim for the pictures here.

57 Channels (And Nothin’ On)

57 Channels (And Nothin' On)

So I bought a .44 magnum it was solid steel cast
And in the blessed name of Elvis well I just let it blast
‘Til my TV lay in pieces there at my feet
And they busted me for disturbing the almighty peace
Judge said “What you got in your defense son?”
“Fifty-seven channels and nothin’ on”
I can see by your eyes friend you’re just about gone
Fifty-seven channels and nothin’ on

Bruce Springsteen – 57 Channels (And Nothin’ On)

Some days I’d like to get a gun and give my TV a blast or two….but I think it would be more appropriate to just shoot the receiver! It’s not the TV’s fault that there’s 57 channels and nothing on! At this point there’s a whole lot more than just 57…there’s scads of channels…and it seems that just about all of them have nothing but reality shows on! Yea….I think the term ‘reality’ is used loosely because there’s nothing much real about them! I just can’t believe how there is nothing on any of the channels that even remotely interests me! Luckily I really like true crime shows so I’m usually tuned into the ID channel watching Joe Kenda:Homicide Hunter or Sins and Secrets! And TLC has a lot of Hard Evidence and 48 Hours:Mysteries too! I don’t want to see what the Kardashians are doing or see what the housewives of any city are fighting about! Just give me an old movie for the DVD player and a few ‘who-dun-its’ and I’m a happy camper!

One thing that I’m super excited about is NX-Nardcotix! I remember shopping for mesh feet, way back when, and I found NX-Nardcotix had really nice feet with sandals! I loved them and wore them everywhere back then! Well, now NX-Nardcotix offers a wide array of footwear for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet and also offers well made women’s attire! Today I’m wearing the Estela Stiletto, they come in Glitter(seen here) or Patent and are available at the current round of FaMESHed, which runs until September 27. You’ll be seeing more NX-Nardcotix creations from me in the near future!

A new round of Designer Showcase is running and I’m wearing the Prism Kate Fringed Leather by Journey! It’s HUD driven with four colours, all super vibrant with great detailing, in the New Orleans Pigment set and comes in five fitted sizes plus fitted versions for the SLink mesh bodies and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya!

I think the Birds of a Feather Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t is the first tattoo I bought for my SLink hands and feet. It’s still gorgeous and relevant today!

Here’s another look at a pose from the Modern Condition Pose Sets from Le Poppycock and available at The Chapter Four!

My nail applier is one of the five selections from the Little Fall palette from Hello Dave!

The Pippa, Variety B, Rare hair is from +elua+.

The Pearl Necklace, Black combo is from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery.

The bare bones of my avatar are the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the elegant hands and high feet from SLink.

I’m out on a little boat dock at the Newton sim, home of NX-Nardcotix, for these pictures. I could have rezzed a little 2 man row boat to take in the scenery, but I didn’t want to do all the rowing alone. SO, maybe one day I can find someone who’d like to go rowing with me! 😉
