(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman

(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman

Looking out on the morning rain
I used to feel so uninspired
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired

Before the day I met you, life was so unkind
But you’re the key to my peace of mind

‘Cause you make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman

When my soul was in the lost and found
You came along, to claim it
I didn’t know just what was wrong with me
‘Til your kiss helped me name it

Now I’m no longer doubtful of what I’m living for
And if I make you happy I don’t need to do more

‘Cause you make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman

Oh, baby, what you done to me?
You make me feel so good inside
And I just wanna be close to you
You make me feel so alive

You make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman

‘(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman’ ~Adele-Aretha Franklin cover~

It’s Friday, and for some reason that I can’t fathom, I got up before 4 AM, for no apparent reason! I guess it’s good to get at it, although I don’t know what I should get at today! Coffee….I’ll start with that and after that who knows, the sky’s the limit!

The ‘Queen & Diva’ tattoo is a new release from the Carol G Tattoo Studio that’s available at the current round of Cosmopolitan. Now, I don’t think I’m a diva at all, although some may think differently. It’s not like I need my M&M’s without any yellow ones or I only drink water that’s come from a glacier and it’s chilled to a certain temperature. I’m just me, a little picky in some ways, but a diva? Nooooo……I don’t think so! 😀 The tattoo is compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven and it comes in 4 ink tones. I should add that ‘Queen’ applies to the left cheek, and they’re applied separately!

I’m wearing the ‘Charlotte Lingerie’ in black, from BigBeautifulDoll, here. The stockings don’t come with it, but I have plenty of stockings in other lingerie sets from BBD that I could use. It consists of the corset and panties and it’s compatible with Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Freya) mesh bodies. It’s available at the current round of Whimsical which runs until September 18.

As usual 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 from the ‘A Bit Shy’ set of poses from MILA.

The photo of me was taken by Mr. S, who has an exhibit right now at Voir Gallery. If you look closely you’ll find me there, too! 😀

Mad About You

Mad About You

Feel the vibe, feel the terror, feel the pain
It’s driving me insane
I can’t fake for God’s sake, why am I
Driving in the wrong lane

Trouble is my middle name
But in the end I’m not too bad
Can someone tell me if it’s wrong to be
So mad about you, mad about you, mad

Are you the fishy wine who will give me
A headache in the morning
Or just a dark blue land mine
That’ll explode without a decent warning

Give me all your true hate
And I’ll translate it in our bed
Into never seen passion, never seen passion
That’s why I am
So mad about you, mad about you, mad

Trouble is your middle name
But in the end you’re not too bad
Can someone tell me if it’s wrong to be
So mad about you mad about you
Mad about you mad about you, mad

Give me all your true hate
And I’ll translate it in your bed
Into never seen passion
That is why I am
So mad about you, mad about you
Mad about you, mad about you
Mad about you, mad about you, mad about you

Mad About You‘ ~Hooverphonic~

I love this version of this song, the orchestra just adds so much depth to it and her voice…..perfect! And the video has such an old fashioned feel with the combination of her outfit and being shot in black and white, gives it the prefect ambiance.

This looks like a typical ‘Liz’ shot, I know….and it is….but usually I have one item for you to look at…….this time I’m wearing new stuff from 3 of my featured designers! I’m listing them in no special order….I love them all equally! 😀

I very rarely wear lipstick……well……when I say ‘rarely’ I actually mean never……it’s been a long time. But, I when I saw the colours in the ‘Moroiter Lipstick Palette’ from Avada I wanted to try them. The set consists of 24 colours and I tried most of them on, then settled for this one. It’s kind of a shock for me to see my lips painted up….so I went low key to start with…..maybe next time I’ll be a little more daring. These are compatible with the Catwa, Lelutka, and LAQ heads, sold separately. It’s exclusive to the VERSUS event that opens on July 1, so mark that on your SL calendars!!

The newest release from !NFINITY is the ‘Vin Necklace’, which is exclusive to the June round of Men Only Monthly. It’s a really intricately detailed cross that comes in silver and gold and the gems are HUD driven with 6 colours for them. It’s resize on touch, so even though it’s sized for men originally, I had no problems getting it down to my size. MOM runs until July 15.

Since I left the house this morning without putting a top on, it’s a good thing I remembered a jacket! 😛 As you can see, I’m wearing the ‘Rose Breast, colour’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo. It’s the perfect accent for a……..ummmmm………yea……..it looks great where it is! lol It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven.

The ‘Miri Denim Jacket’ is from /erratic/. It fits perfectly over pants and comes in lots of colours, with the fatpack having 3 bonus colours.

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram. I’m not sure if anyone notices, but I adore tram hair, it’s so photogenic and one of the most detailed hair in SL. I always get HUD A, for a great selection of colours.

My skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the 4 options from the ‘Sexy Smokey Eyeshadow’ pack from MILA.

This pose is from the ‘Live Free’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.

I’m at Mother Road for this picture, I love this car! Although I normally favour anything MOPAR……..a Chev will do in a pinch! 😀

Come With Me Now

Come With Me Now

Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I’ve wasted time, I’ve wasted breath
I think I’ve thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

I think with my heart and I move with my head
I open my mouth and it’s something I’ve read
I stood at this door before, I’m told
But a part of me knows that I’m growing too old

Confused what I thought with something I felt
Confuse what I feel with something that’s real
I tried to sell my soul last night
Funny, he wouldn’t even take a bite

Come With Me Now‘ ~KONGOS~

This is just an excerpt of the lyrics, since they were long and there was much repeating. This is an easy song to sing along with, even without having the lyrics in front of you. I’m one of those people that doesn’t need to know the words to sing along with a song. Sure, I’ve butchered the lyrics of many good songs, but back in the day there really was no choice! You sang what you thought you heard, whether it made sense or not. If I have no clue, I then just say gibberish to make it sound like I know what I’m talking about. Hey, I’m the girl that sings along with songs in languages other than English, and I make them sound equally terrible as the ones I know. I come from a family where singing Happy Birthday to someone is something we’d never do with anyone but ourselves, we’re terrible. Most of us out of tune, I’m always lagging a little bit so I finish last and my sister tries to harmonize, but since no one’s in tune there’s no one to harmonize with. I think I’m a great singer in the shower, but my shower’s like outer space…..it’s in there that no one can hear me scream!

You know I’m all about love, well…..I guess not ALL about it! I don’t love a lot of things in this world, but the general message I try to convey is LOVE! So, the new release from !NFINITY is perfect for me! The ‘Love Necklace, exclusive to The Dollhouse which comes in glad and silver and it’s unrigged and scripted for easy resizing. The Dollhouse runs until 8 SM SLT May 20. I’m including the ad for it so you can get a closer look at it! (click on the picture to blow it up real good!)

Ha, I’ve finally done it! I’m wearing a man-bun! This is ‘B78’ from DURA Hair and I think it looks pretty darn cute! I mean, buns were for girls first, right?

The ‘Basic Tank’, from Tres Blah, is just what it’s called! Which is perfect since Ilove basic styles that can be worn with anything, and since it’s almost summer in some places it’s tank top time!

The simple ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink. I wear the HUD for it all the time since it’s become one that I feel naked without!

The ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone, with freckles, is from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the four eye shadows from the ‘Sexy Smokey Shadow’ set from MILA.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Melaina’ set of poses from entangled poses.

I’m hanging out at my favourite place here, Isle of May.

Wild Horses

Wild Horses

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I can’t let you slide through my hands
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don’t have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let’s do some living after we die
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day

Wild Horses‘ ~The Rolling Stones, feat. Eddie Vedder~

I’ve never been a fan of The Rolling Stones, they’ve just never appealed to me, but while winding my way through songs on YouTube I came across this version of Wild Horses, and since most of the songs that are picked for me include Eddie Vedder, I’m surprised I hadn’t seen it before now. My love of EV far surpasses my dislike for Mick Jagger et al. so I had to have a look and a listen. I have to admit…..I really like this version. This song is already one that I could like, but having EV singing it makes it a hit in my books! I think he’s performed with just about everyone at some point in time. He’s with Tom Petty for “The Waiting’ and he rocks ‘Highway to Hell’ with Bruce Springsteen. He helps REM with ‘Man on the Moon’ at their HOF induction, and he was with Roger Waters for ‘Comfortably Numb’. He sang ‘Redemption Song’ with Beyoncè, and ‘You Can Close Your Eyes’ with Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks. I’ve watched the video of him with Neil Young performing ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’ and it was rockin’! Yup….EV can sing pretty much anything with anyone and sound great. On another topic, of absolutely no interest to anyone, is the fact that I used to have a couple of horses and one was kinda wild! I’ve thought about getting one or two again, but just haven’t done it, yet. I like horses, but they’ve never been my number one love, cows always came first for me. I think it’s the fact that horses are sneaky! I could just about always predict a cows movements…but a horse was always full of surprises, and when one is on their back….surprises are not welcome!

I did a little bit of inventory diving today and look what I found! The ‘Elias Bracelet’ from !NFINITY is men’s size when you add it, but with the resize script in it I easily got it down to size for me. It includes left and right versions, black or brown strap and it’s HUD driven with 5 metals and 10 gem stone colours. You can find it on Market Place or at the !NFINITY main store.

The ‘G0911’ hair is from tram. Since I’ve been wearing this skin I’ve bought half of the tram store!

The ‘Bella Tank Top’ is from Tres Blah. This is the ‘nude’ version.

You can only see the waistband of the ‘Kimi Skirt’ from Blueberry, but trust me…it’s snug and short. Makes me feel casually sexy!

And this skin that I’m wearing? It’s ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery. I’m wearing the freckles version and it’s on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the 4 eye shadows from ‘Shoreline Set’ from War Paint.

This is pose 83 from MILA.

I’m at one of my favourite sims right now, Isle of May.

Waiting for Superman

Waiting for Superman

She’s watching the taxi driver, he pulls away
She’s been locked up inside her apartment a hundred days

She says, “Yeah, he’s still coming, just a little bit late.
He got stuck at the laundromat washing his cape.”
She’s just watching the clouds roll by and they spell her name
Like Lois Lane
And she smiles, oh the way she smiles

She’s talking to angels,
Counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She’s dancing with strangers,
Falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms, yeah, in his arms, yeah
Waiting for Superman

She’s out on the corner trying to catch a glimpse
Nothing’s making sense
She’s been chasing an answer, a sign lost in the abyss,
This Metropolis

She says, “Yeah, he’s still coming, just a little bit late.
He got stuck at the Five and Dime saving the day.”
She says, “If life was a movie, then it wouldn’t end like this,
Left without a kiss.”
Still, she smiles, oh, the way she smiles, yeah

She’s talking to angels,
Counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She’s dancing with strangers,
She’s falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms, yeah, in his arms, yeah
She’s waiting for Superman…

…to lift her up and take her anywhere
Show her love and flying through the air
Save her now before it’s too late tonight
Oh, at the speed of light
And she smiles

Waiting for Superman‘ ~Daughtry~

The ‘Florid Panties’ are from Nui. There’s a matching bra and the detailing is incredible.

The thigh high boots are ‘KALISKA’ from UTOPIA DESIGN. They have several shine options and the supple leather and high level of detail make these my go-to boots!

The ‘Kef’ hair is from [BAD HAIR DAY].

My new skin is ‘Maddie’ from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lilo’ mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is pose 18 from MILA.
