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.

Show Me How To Live

Show Me How To Live

Nail in my head
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live
Nail in my head
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live
And in your waiting hands
I will land, and roll out of my skin
And in your final hours I will stand,
Ready to begin

Show Me How to Live ~Audioslave~

Just a few song lyrics today in place of my sometimes witty and thought provoking dialogue. 🙂

I want to show you something! Look closely, you can’t miss it! It’s the ‘Noor’ hair from [BAD HAIR DAY] and it’s AWESOME! It’s brand new and available at the main store! I’m wearing options from the ‘colors’ pack and I know I don’t usually wear non natural colours, but I love these! Each colour pack has 24 options and the hair has 2 layers to colour independently, so there’s a whack of options with just one pack, let alone the ten colour packs available! I’m really looking forward to showing you all the hot new releases from [BAD HAIR DAY]!

I’m using a new pose that’s in the ‘Malcolm’ set of poses from Imitation and available at the August round of Somber. The set contains five sad and depressed poses, in two sizes. I don’t know why, but I’m more comfortable doing a post like this than a happy one. I don’t do happy well! 😀

My ruined make up is courtesy of the ‘Rough Night Shadow’ set of eye shadows from Veechi! It’s an older release, but tears are timeless. 😛

To go with the overall feel of this picture, the ‘In the Shadows’ tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t is perfect. My love of birds, crows and ravens especially, is alive and well.

The ‘Off Shoulder Tight Top is from Tetra and available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Leather String Choker is from RealEvil Industries.

As always, 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(bento hands included) from Maitreya.

Tattoo You

Tattoo You

It used to be only a certain type of person got a tattoo! It was the rebels and the bikers then, but it’s become very mainstream now and much more accepted by most people. I know there’s lots of people that frown on them still, but I’m not one of them. I will admit to having a couple of my own in real life. I’ve had them for quite a few years, and thankfully I put them in places where gravity won’t affect them too much. Gravity is a harsh mistress, you know! 😀 I have one on my ankle and one on my shoulder, both fairly small and covered most of the year. I sometimes forget I have them, really. One of my real life neighbours is quite covered in tattoos. I’ve not seen him without a shirt, but he has full sleeves and there’s tattoo peaking out of the neckline of his T shirt so he appears to be covered. So with him looking very much like what you’d think of as a biker or a rebel it was surprising the first time I talked to him. He never swears, he’s super polite, and always calls me dear, in a nice way. He doesn’t have a motorcycle, but he rebuilds old cars and is exceptionally good at it! But you know what I mean, he’s tattooed, he has big bushy hair down past the tops of his shoulders, his beard is a little longer than that and he has tattoos, so you’d think he’s the stereotypical rebel. But no, he’s just a nice guy living his life and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. I hope one day someone needs it, I’d like to see how much of him is tattooed!

When I started my Second Life I fell in love pretty much right from the first with virtual tattoos. The quality of them has improved immensely since I was young in this virtual world and with the mesh bodies the detailing can be incredible! I’m so excited to see PIMP MY SHI!T back with new releases for the August round of the Bodyfy event. I’m wearing the Octo Tattoo in medium ink tone, although it comes in colour also and has three ink tones. It’s Omega and TMP compatible and can be worn on all layers. So happy to see PMS back in action!! Bodyfy runs until August 30.

The pose I’m using here is one of the five in the ‘Suri’ set of poses from Imitaion. I’ve always loved SL poses and Imitation is one of my favourite pose stores. The sets are all bento enabled and they’re so expressive and alive. I really think Bento hands have changed the way bloggers and photographers can create photos that really show emotion and bring their scenes to life. You can also find Imitation on Market Place.

The Chapter Four has always been one of my favourite SL events, and I’m so lucky to be able to feature all the incredible work by the designers who participate. I’m featuring some of the gacha items from the ‘Dark Oak’ gacha set from Bee Designs. The Arm Chair, Side Table, and the Poster are all part of the set which has eight common and two RARE to play for. The Chapter Four runs until the end of the month.

The rest of the items that make my home cozy are the ‘Filmore Factory Clock’ from 7 Emporium, the ‘Star Globe,RARE’ lamp from the ‘Vintage Lighting’ gacha set from ::Static:: and available at The Gacha Garden. The ‘Majestic Radio’ is from the ‘Vintage Radio’ gacha set from KraftWork. Each radio in the set has two versions, one scripted for use as a radio and one for decor only. The house plants on the left are from {what next}. The ‘Reading Pile’ of books is from a gacha set from Apple Fall and the books beside the chair are from [zerkalo].

And as for me? I’m wearing the ‘Candice’ set from [Azuchi]. It includes the panties and top, it comes in ten colours and is available at the current round of ~uber~. 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(including bento hands) from Maitreya. I’ve added a little bit of ‘Smoky Eyeshadow’ from Izzie’s to the look. My eyes are from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ pack from Zombie Suicide and the WAKANA hair is from Argrace.

My Name is Nobody

My Name is Nobody

When I take the photos and write my blog posts, I go about it as if no one will see it. I’m not doing any of to be noticed or become Second Life famous if there is such a thing, I just enjoy the whole process that is blogging. So, when random people instant message me saying hello, and various other forms of greetings, I’m always baffled how they picked me to talk to. When I ask why they’re talking to me, the answer is ‘your blog’ or ‘flickr page’, it’s then that I realize that people do read and view my pictures and blog posts. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since I do get views on both. 🙂 I don’t mind it really, I’m Canadian so I’m usually fairly polite, but I find it odd when the person is insulted that I won’t friend them or meet them somewhere. By declining the invitations I’m not doing it to be mean, but I just don’t friend random people, or accept invites anywhere if I don’t know them. I’d like to think that I don’t have to be on a friends list for someone to find me to talk to, if they really want to talk to me I can be found. So on that note, thank you for viewing and reading, I’m very thankful to have such great followers, and if you’d like to chat with me, at least try to be a little bit original! 😀

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming! First up is the pose! I have to admit that I’m addicted to poses! If I see a pose stand somewhere to try out, I’m on it. A pose plays a vital part of Second Life photography, so picking one that’s appropriate to the mood and feel of the pic is important. This is a pose from the ‘Amy’ set of poses from Imitation, and it’s a simple pose, but the little nuances make it natural, relaxed, and real. You can find the ‘Amy’ set of poses at the Imitation main store and on Market Place.

Next up is the ‘Cherry Blossom’ tattoo from Avada. I love the placement of this tattoo, and the soft colouring and falling petals are perfect. It comes in two tones, fresh and faded, and is compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, TMP, and Omega enabled mesh bodies. Remember that Avada was formerly Sinful Curves Skins, so you can expect quality and proven great customer service. As always, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone, also from Avada, on the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I love this frilly and feminine swimsuit from NX-Nardcotix. The ‘Daisy Bikini’ has a thong bottom and a pretty bra to accentuate all the assets a woman has. I love my curves. 😀 It comes fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies and comes in eleven colours or in a full pack.

The ‘MAYU’ hair from Argrace creates a nice breeze, wherever you may be. It contains a mirror version, also.

I’ve added a touch of make up to the skin. The ‘Blossom Shadow’ from A R T E is perfect for me. It’s available at a reduced price while at eBento.

The ‘windows to my soul’ are one of the ten options in the ‘Nissa Eyes’ from Zombie Suicide.
