My Kinda Lover

My Kinda Lover

You got me runnin’ baby
You give me somethin’ way beyond revenue
You put the magic in me
I feel the magic when we do what we do
And oh
I can’t do without you for too long you’re my situation
You’re my kinda lover
My kinda lover
My kinda lover
My kinda lover
My kinda lover
My kinda lover
You keep me all together
You take me out whenever I’m lettin’ down
You got the motions baby
I got a notion maybe I’ll stick around
And oh
I can never doubt you for too long I can’t see no reason
You’re my kinda lover
My kinda lover
My kinda lover
My kinda lover
My kinda lover
My kinda lover
When you come ’round I never get down, I fly across the floor
I can see you comin’ on me and I can’t ask for more
Rock me, sock me, baby you got me ridin’ to the end
Rake me, shake me, baby you make me, turn me on again
You got my motor racin’
I find my thoughts embracin’ your every move
I want to set you reelin’
I want to make you feel the way that I do
And oh
I been thinkin’ ’bout you for so long
I don’t want to lose ya, you’re my kinda lover

My Kinda Lover‘ ~Billy Squier~

I’ve never been to Cuba, I say that because I’m sitting on the little retaining wall in Little Havana for this picture. I’ve never felt the need to go to warm climates for holidays. Well, actually…..I never really go on vacations at all, it’s been so many years since my last one. And I’ve had people say that I don’t need one since I have such a unrestricted life, since my time is my own, I guess I could consider everyday a holiday. But, it doesn’t matter what a person does or how they live, getting away from home for a little bit can be a good thing. There’s a reason I don’t go away, it’s the pressure I put on myself to have a good time. I get to where I’m going and then worry about doing the right things to fully enjoy it. I end up coming home stressed from worrying about having fun……call me crazy! 😀

I’m wearing the ‘Marie’ dress from [I♥F.co]. It’s an undress me, dress with 4 stages and everything you need to have the right person strip you. It does get daring…so you can’t be shy when wearing it.

The mussed up ‘Suzy’ hair is from monso.

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 from the ‘On Edge’ set of poses from Le Poppycock. It’s a pose/prop set that has you sitting and standing with walls and railings. It includes the wall if you need it, but it also have pose balls so you can just prop up on any wall you like.

The Book Of My Life

The Book Of My Life

Let me watch by the fire and remember my days
And it may be a trick of the firelight
But the flickering pages that trouble my sight
Is a book I’m afraid to write

It’s the book of my days, it’s the book of my life
And it’s cut like a fruit on the blade of a knife
And it’s all there to see as the section reveals
There’s some sorrow in every life

If it reads like a puzzle, a wandering maze
Then I won’t understand ’til the end of my days
I’m still forced to remember,
Remember the words of my life

There are promises broken and promises kept
Angry words that were spoken, when I should have wept
There’s a chapter of secrets, and words to confess
If I lose everything that I possess
There’s a chapter on loss and a ghost who won’t die
There’s a chapter on love where the ink’s never dry
There are sentences served in a prison I built out of lies.

Though the pages are numbered
I can’t see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life

There’s a chapter on fathers a chapter on sons
There are pages of conflicts that nobody won
And the battles you lost and your bitter defeat,
There’s a page where we fail to meet

There are tales of good fortune that couldn’t be planned
There’s a chapter on god that I don’t understand
There’s a promise of Heaven and Hell but I’m damned if I see

Though the pages are numbered
I can’t see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life

Now the daylight’s returning
And if one sentence is true
All these pages are burning
And all that’s left is you

Though the pages are numbered
I can’t see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life

The Book of My Life‘ ~Sting~

I’ve lived long enough to have gone through quite a few chapters in my life. It seems, when I look back on it, that the longest chapters were the ones that didn’t have a lot of happiness in them, and the shorter ones do, but that could just be how it seems and in reality it’s not like that. When things have been bad it felt like it was never going to be good again. But, like I’ve always told myself, ‘this too shall pass’, and it always has. Unfortunately the good passes as well as the bad and all we’re left with is now. Right now……..and it’s not about what you’re doing at this moment, it’s keeping the mind focused on this moment in time. Yea, you still have to plan for the future and you still look back and remember…..but neither of those should consume a person. I want to be completely immersed in the moment….of course it helps that times are so great for me right now, I have a wonderful man in my life, I have incredible friends, and family….what more can I want? There’s nothing in the world that could make me happier at this moment……..well……..just a second….I need a coffee…that’ll do it!

It’s early in the current round at Cosmopolitan and **UTOPIA@DESIGN** has ‘ROBIN’ exclusive to the event! As always, they’re HUD driven with 12 presets for easy colour change, plus there’s 6 areas to customize with 10 colours, plus metals options. There’s also 5 levels of glossiness and they’re fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh feet. This round of Cosmopolitan runs until September 22.

The ‘Long Sweater’ is from Tres Blah and available now at Collabor88. It’s a classic that I’ll be wearing a lot, I think.

The ‘Yumi’ hair is from [monso] and also available at C88.

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.

This pose is from the ‘Book Lovers’ sets of poses from Le Poppycock. The cat is included as a prop as are books, but I’m using books from the ‘Stockholm Bedroom Set’ fromm BAZAR here.

I’m perusing the books in the ‘James Joyce Library’ from KraftWork. The ‘Apple Basket’ is from Raindale.

Lovesong

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.

5 Years Time

5 Years Time

Oh well in five years time we could be walking round a zoo
With the sun shining down over me and you
And there’ll be love in the bodies of the elephants too
And I’ll put my hands over your eyes, but you’ll peep through

And there’ll be sun sun sun all over our bodies
And sun sun sun all down our necks
And sun sun sun all over our faces
And sun sun sun so what the heck!

Cos I’ll be laughing at all your silly little jokes
And we’ll be laughing about how we used to smoke
All those stupid little cigarettes and drink stupid wine
Cos it’s what we needed to have a good time

And it was fun fun fun when we were drinking
It was fun fun fun when we were drunk
And it was fun fun fun when we were laughing
It was fun fun fun, oh it was fun

Oh well I look at you and say
It’s the happiest that I’ve ever been
And I’ll say I no longer feel I have to be James Dean
And she’ll say
“Yah well I feel all pretty happy too”
And I’m always pretty happy when I’m just kicking back with you

And it’ll be love love love all through our bodies
And love love love all through our minds
And it be Love love love all over her face
And Love love love all over mine

Although maybe all these moments are just in my head
I’ll be thinking ‘bout them as I’m lying in bed
And all that I believe, it might not even come true
But in my mind I’m havin’ a pretty good time with you

In five years time I might not know you
In five years time we might not speak
In five years time we might not get along
In five years time you might just prove me wrong

Oh there’ll be love love love
Wherever you go
There’ll be love

5 Years Time‘ ~Noah and the Whale~

In 5 years time I have no idea where I’ll be or what I’ll be doing. If I think back 5 years I don’t remember ever thinking about where I’d be 5 years later, which is now……so I guess I can’t be disappointed or surprised by anything that’s going on in my life. Back in June of 2013 I was a year and a half old in Second Life, I was probably wearing flexi hair and was all system, or what I now call…..classic avatar! I was 5 years younger, which I’m sure everyone was…..I don’t think I’m the only person on earth that suffers from getting older! In all honesty I can’t remember much about that year……I don’t think anything happened to make it stand out from the rest. So….if I think ahead 5 years, it makes it 2023, which is an incomprehensible number…..it seems like yesterday the biggest worry in the world was Y2K! Oh, if only it was still that way, instead of what’s going on in the world today. I hope my family are all still with me and healthy and the world isn’t in the turmoil it is today. I hope Second Life is still thriving and I can continue to live a virtual life with Liz keeping busy with what she keeps busy with! Oh…and may she age well, being one of those women that everyone whispers, ‘I can’t believe how old she is…she looks so young’! Will I still be doing butt shots? Hell yea………I’m going to flaunt IT while I got IT………and I might flaunt IT even a little bit after IT’s gone!

Today’s shot is taken at one of my favourite sims, Isle of May. I’m just kicking back a bit and enjoying the sights. I’m using a pose from the ‘Still Waters’ set of pose/props from Le Poppycock. The prop for the set is a rowboat, but I’ve managed to look pretty darn comfortable and relaxed in a chair here on the sim.

The ‘Luma Tube Top’ is one of my all time favourites from *Just BECAUSE*. This print is just gorgeous……but I love most orange tones!

The ‘Miyeon’ hair is from MONSO and available now at FaMESHed.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

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.

My eyes are from the ‘Soma’ set from Zombie Suicide and my eye make up is from the ‘Sydney’ pack from La Boheme.

Bitter Sweet

Bitter Sweet

‘Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony, that’s life
Tryna make ends meet
You’re a slave to money then you die
I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
Where all the veins meet yeah

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I’m here in my mold
I am here in my mold
But I’m a million different people
From one day to the next
I can’t change my mold
No, no, no, no, no
Have you ever been down?

Well I’ve never prayed
But tonight I’m on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine,
Let it cleanse my mind,
I feel free now
But the airwaves are clean and there’s nobody singing to me now

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I’m here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I’m a million different people
From one day to the next
I can’t change my mold
No, no, no, no, no
Have you ever been down?
I can’t change it you know
I can’t change it

‘Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony, this life
Tryna make ends meet
Tryna find some money then you die
I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
Where all the veins meet yeah

You know I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I’m here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I’m a million different people
From one day to the next
I can’t change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

Bitter Sweet Symphony‘ ~The Verve~

I’ve always found it sad that so many people spend the majority of their lives chasing the dollar. It’s the way of the world, it’s a money driven society that relies just about solely on consumerism to keep the economy going. So many times I’ve heard someone say how much they wish it was Friday. I’ve done that…..always waiting for a certain day when life would really begin. But, by waiting for every Friday and getting through it so the weekend can start, 5 of your 7 days of the week are spent wishing it was a different day. It kind of goes against the whole concept of living in the moment! I’ve worked at jobs that I’ve hated and I’ll admit that I just can’t handle being that unhappy. I don’t mean that I need to be blissful every moment, it comes down to the stress that a job has, and my inability to handle it! Because I admit to stressing easily, when it comes to spending that many hours a day stressed, then the rest of the day being stressed about going back to work, I just can’t do it! Luckily, I’ve always managed to have a roof over my head and a few loonies in my pocket! I won’t lie to you and say it’s always been easy, I’ve struggled and times have been tough, but it’s funny what a person can do without. I came to the conclusion that to lower my expectations and stay sane is much more enjoyable than running after that dollar, and having life pass me by waiting for the weekend!

So, the focus of this post is the tattoo!! It’s the ‘Lust’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo and available now at Cosmopolitan Events. It’s amazingly detailed with a beautiful feminine design that looks gorgeous all on it’s own, or with the simplest of lingerie. It comes in black(seen here), white and red and it’s compatible with SLink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP mesh bodies plus anything that uses the Omega system. This round of Cosmopolitan runs until April 21.

The bra and panties are from the ‘SAVANNAH Lingerie’ set from Big Beautiful Doll Lingerie. The set also includes a garter and stockings with all being compatible with the 3 major mesh bodies.

The ‘My Hair-Suzy- is from [monso].

I’m wearing the ‘Raine Gen 2’ skin in tone 210 from Avada here, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is one of the 6 poses in the ‘Kate’s Closet’ set from RK Poses and I’m sitting in the ‘Accent Gift Chair’ from Nutmeg.
