Lovesong

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you

I’ll always love you
I’ll always love you
‘Cause I love you
Love, love, love…

Lovesong‘ ~The Cure~

I was running to get into the September round of Collabor88 bright and early yesterday and when I left I had an empty wallet, and my arm was sore from carrying so many bags! So I made multiple costume changes throughout the day but had no wardrobe malfunctions, so all in all it was a good day!

The first thing I grabbed was the ‘Long Sweater’ from Tres Blah! It was one of those instances that the phrase, ‘ask and ye shall receive’ fit! Since it’s sweater weather in my real world a new one is perfect timing, and Vrir and I had discussed all the great things about oversized sweaters, so when I got to C88 it was like it had a ray of sunlight on it and it was calling my name! I got the fat pack to get the 5 bonus colours. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza(Isis/Freya).

The ‘Yumi’ hair is from [monso], and it’s new and exclusive to Collabor88, too!

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.

The pose is ‘Model 823’ from Manifeste.

Albatross

Albatross

One last cup of starlight
Before I wake and start my day
A past so filled with promise
Before I lost, I lost my way

Ah that’s OK, and I’m alright
I guess I’ll be lost again
For one more night
Ooh and that’s alright, I’m OK
I’ll wear the albatross
For one more day

As the past recalls the romance
Before the bells and what you make
I lost my friend in between them
And that was more than I could take

Ah that’s OK, and I’m alright
I guess I’ll be lost again
For one more night
Ooh and that’s alright, I’m OK
I’ll wear the albatross
For one more day

Ah that’s OK, and I’m alright
I guess I’ll be lost again
For one more night
Ooh and that’s alright, I’m OK
I’ll wear the albatross
For one more day
I’ll wear the albatross
For one more day
I’ll wear the albatross
For one more day

And because I know I’m alright

Albatross‘ ~ Big Wreck~

I made a visit to Baja Norte for this picture, I was thinking of doing a beach shot and definitely could have with the amount of beach there, but no…..I have to be completely different and find the little dock where the fishermen hang out. It’s a nice little area, but with the fishing paraphernalia, rough wooden docks, and gull poo(well, in all honesty I didn’t see any gull poo, but I bet it was there somewhere) I wasn’t really dressed appropriately. I should have had a pair of sandals or flip flops with me, as well as some extra sunscreen, and a hat! Why didn’t I bring a hat? Damn…..and a book…there’s a little bench here to sit on, I could have spent some time reading. I didn’t even bring water with me, which is always a regret, because you’re never thirsty until you realize there’s no water to drink. Oh well, I’m enjoying myself regardless, the setting sun, warm sea breeze, and the call of the gulls make it the end of a perfect day!

As promised in my last post I’m featuring the new release from *Just BECAUSE*. The ‘Irma Bikini’ is perfect for the summer sun and fun on the beach, or by the pool, I guess. It comes in tons of colours with the fatpack including 26 solid colours and 8 prints, along with an on/off toggle for both top and bottom. The Printpack is a new purchase option for you, with the 8 prints being available separately, if you prefer. I must say the rear view of this swimsuit is a little breezy! 😀

The ‘Bloom’ hair from TRUTH Hair is available now at ~uber~. The styling HUD has a lot of options plus you can add a little flower accessory to the back if you like.

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.

The pose is ‘Model 823’ from Manifeste.

‘Why fit in when you were meant to stand out?’

~Dr. Seuss~

I’ve never fit in, it’s a fact that I spent many years trying to prove wrong. This fact was the most difficult to deal with when I was young, I just kept trying to fit in, but was constantly alone in my own space. And the sad part about that is, I always thought it was something I had to fix, there was something wrong with me that made me less worthy of being alive in this world. I think society has embraced individuality more now than when I was young, but with bullying such a huge issue, I know that it’s still almost impossible to feel like you belong. It’s not the people that talk about it being OK to be different that do the bullying, it’s everyone living in the round hole that expect us square pegs to fit in. I’ve come to embrace the fact that I don’t fit in, I mean, do I really want to fit in with the people that I don’t even like? No……I choose my friends on the basis of who they are, I accept their differences and want them to feel completely themselves with me. Life’s too short to worry about fitting in and being someone you’re not, be free and be who you want to be, and smile if people look at you funny…….because they just don’t get it! 🙂

I’m wearing the newest release from Tres Blah here. It’s the ‘All Tied Up Blouse’ available now at ~uber~. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass & Physique), and the Belleza(Isis & Freya) mesh bodies and comes in 15 colours.

One of my favourite hair is ‘G1224’ from tram.

The ‘Lila Jeans’ are a fairly new release from Blueberry. I’m rockin’ that butt that Blueberry’s known for. 😀

I want to mention that the ‘Raine’ skin from Avada has been tweaked and I’m super excited about the changes. It’s available now at The Makeover Room, so stop in and have a look. I’ll be doing a close up of my face in the next post to show you how beautiful I am! 😛 I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The ‘Model 823’ pose is from Manifeste and available at the Pose Fair! I absolutely adore the Pose Fair!

I’m at one of my favourite places for this shot, Tralala’s Diner.
