Dream On

Dream On

Every time I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by like dusk to dawn

Isn’t that the way?
Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody’s sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life’s in books’ written pages
Live and learn from fools and from sages
You know it’s true
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream yourself a dream come true
Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream until your dreams come true

Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream on, dream on,
Dream on, dream on, ah

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away…

‘Dream On’ written by Steven Tyler performed here by Boyce Avenue.

It’s a musical interlude for you today! I bring you Boyce Avenue with an acoustic version of ‘Dream On’ by Aerosmith. I love when rock songs are done acoustically, it really simplifies the music and puts the focus on the lyrics instead. I love this version from Boyce Avenue, the guitar playing is pure perfection and his dreamy voice takes me away. So, enjoy your day, whichever day it might be where you are. I’m going to get another cup of coffee and spend the next 6 hours watching videos on YouTube!

The January round of Limit8 will be open for business until February 13 and LEGAL INSANITY has the ‘Arla Belted Skirt’ exclusive to the event. The skirt comes in eight colours and can be purchased as a fatpack, which is HUD driven with options to colour the belt and skirt separately. It’s really form fitting with a high waist to show of your curves and the booty is pretty damn fine! It’s fitted exclusively for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The ‘Neva Top’ is the latest release at the main store of /erratic/ and it’s a perfect pairing with the skirt! It comes in 16 separate colours but the fatpack includes 4 bonus colours, so you know that I had to get the fatpack. It’s really a no brainer when it comes to /erratic/, I know I’ll wear it many times.

The ‘Faith-Hope_Love’ tattoo is from Carol G Tattoo Wear and I love the positive message it sends. I love a chest tattoo, I like to think of it as a test for the guys, they can maybe improve their reading skills while staring where they shouldn’t be staring! It comes with 3 ink tones and is compatible with all the major mesh bodies, including Omega enabled ones, plus the classic avatars.

entangled poses has cleared the main area of the clearance pose sets and now there’s 2 new sets available, both perfect for your posing needs. I’m using one of the 3 poses from the ‘Larisa’ set.

The ‘Shirabe’ hair is from Argrace.

And my whole look starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added a bit of eye make up from the ‘Dark Metals’ eye shadow set from Izzie’s.

I’ve been making Tralala’s Diner my sim of choice, lately. I don’t think I’ll ever run out of neat little areas to take a picture.

Snow Country

Snow Country

The northern country snow sings
An early winter soft like static, down
Quaking in the breeze like aspen leaves
Silver whispers blanketing the ground

Cloak my body in my woolen coat
Keep me warm, walk the frozen earth
Watch them slowpoke clouds pass like city crowds
And carry on in a separate world

~Brendon Matthew Thomas~

You can read this poem in it’s entirety here.

This makes winter seem so soft and peaceful, and really, for the most part it is. At least some days in my part of the world. I find that the times most like this are when it’s a bright sunny day, the thermometer hovering around the -30°C mark and just the slightest breeze to make the small branches on the leafless trees shiver. That breeze, though slight, will make that -30°C feel more like -40°C and a person needs a bit more than just a woolen cloak to stay warm. The key is layering! Start with an Under Armour undershirt and finish off with a windbreak of some sort. And in between have layers of various materials all to help keep your body heat in and the winter cold out. I’ve been outside working in the harshest of weather and though it’s not great, it’s not that bad. The worst part of it looking out the window and imagining how cold it is! It’s best to get your clothes on and dive outside, give Mother Nature the finger and say, ‘You will not beat me!’.

Today, my look is all due to the newest release from [KoKoLoReS]! ‘Charlie’ is a very cute, unrigged hair with a non detachable cap, both HUD driven with lots of colours in the four available colour packs and ten colours for the cap. It’s available now at SaNaRae.

I managed to get into the November round of ~uber~ and I grabbed the ‘Anais Cardigan’ from Lapointe & Bastchild like a shot! I opted to not add the included scarf, and it’s all HUD driven with separate HUDs for the scarf and cardigan, with the undershirt being detached for just a cropped cardigan top! ~uber~ runs until December 23.

I’ve chosen one of the nine colours from the ‘Sultry Shadow’ pack of eye shadow from Veechi. It’s available until December 19 at District20 and it’s compatible with the Catwa(seen here) and Lelutka mesh heads.

The whole look revolves around the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada. It’s available now at APPLIQUÈ, which runs until December 7. The beautiful skin is on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Fixated’ bento pose set from FOXCITY and available at the current round of Limit8, which runs until December 13.

I was in the falling snow at the gorgeous winter sim, North, for this shot.

I really want this in my real life. A cute little corner all fixed up with everything I need to be completely at peace. I know exactly where I’d put it too! There’s a little spot in the pasture, on the south side of a poplar bluff that looks out over the prairie. The trees are starting to turn a bright yellow and the smell of dry grass and sage is in the air. The sky is that pale blue that only fall brings and the light breeze has a nip to it, but with this facing south I don’t feel the north west wind. I’ve finished my cup of coffee, and as I lay my book down beside me, having gotten sleepy from the warm sun shining on me, I see nothing but red through my closed eyelids. The sky is filled with migrating birds most of the day and into the night as the crows, geese, and cranes are all on the move, by the hundreds, heading for warmer climes. There was frost last night and soon there’ll be colder nights and eventually snow. But today, I rest peacefully letting all thoughts of my physical being go and enjoy this very second, for it’s the only thing that matters!

The ‘Wooden Signs’ from {MYNX} are rustic and woodsy and say pretty much everything that needs to be said! I chose the ‘Love’, ‘But first, Coffee’, ‘And so the adventure begins’, and the ‘I want to rock your gypsy soul’ signs to keep me grounded in life and to keep all the heavy stuff from clogging up my mind. These signs are available starting today at the September round of Limit 8, starting at 5 PM SLT. If Limit 8 is new to you, you can check out the website.

I wanted to have a little place where I could go to escape the world, yes…..even the virtual one, so I set up ‘The Old Shed, SUPER RARE’ from ‘The Summer is Gone’ gacha set from ..::THOR::... This gacha set is it’s part of the September round of PocketGacha, so there’s no need to leave your home to play. If PocketGacha is new to you, visit their website and find out more, I know you’ll want to get that HUD and start playing! I’m showing most of ‘The Summer is Gone’ gacha set here, including the ‘DIY Bed, RARE’, ‘The Fishbowl’, ‘The Coffee Cup’, ‘The Vintage Nightstand’, ‘The Vintage Radio’, ‘The Flying Leaves’, ‘The Stacked Blankets’, ‘The Old Fender’, and ‘The Broken Bicycle’. The bicycle and the fender both come with two versions, one for ground and one for the wall, to make it nice and versatile when decorating. I love the casual and rustic designs from ..::THOR::.., the intricate detailing and unique look are perfect additions to my SL home!

I love the soft and natural looking grasses from Raindale! This is the ‘dry’ version of the ‘Meadow Grass’.

The ‘Norway Maple’ and the ‘Wild Oak’ trees are from The Little Branch, along with the ‘Wild Grass Dry’ which is included with the ‘Wild Oak’ tree pack.
