Throw Your Arms Around Me

Throw Your Arms Around Me

I will come for you at night time
I will raise you from your sleep
I will kiss you in four places
As I go running along your street
I will squeeze the life out of you
You will make me laugh and make me cry
We will never forget it
You will make me call your name and I’ll shout it to the blue summer sky
We may never meet again
So shed your skin and lets get started
And you will throw your arms around me

I dreamed of you at night time
And I watched you in your sleep
I met you in high places
I touched your head and touched your feet
So if you disappear out of view
You know, I will never say goodbye
Though I try to forget it
You will make me call your name and I’ll shout it to the blue summer sky

We may never meet again
So shed your skin and lets get started
And you will throw your arms around me
Yeah, you will throw your arms around me

written by ~Mark Seymour~ This is the version I prefer with Eddie Vedder(naturally) and Mark Seymour

This song gives me goosebumps.

I hope you enjoyed the musical interlude, we will now get down to business.

First off, one of my favourite events is starting a new round tomorrow (July 18) and {MYNX} is there! The Limit8 event is one that I make sure to get to early, cuz if you don’t the limited items that each designer has released exclusively for it will be gone! {MYNX} has the “‘Aviator Sunglasses’ exclusive for the event, they’re available in gold,(seen here), silver, and rose gold. They’re big, they’re bold, and they’re beautiful.

U L T R A opened yesterday, and Le Poppycock has released the ‘Summer Meltdown’ festival poses! I’m using one from the “A” pack. These poses are all a lot of fun, you’ll be having a blast at the outdoor concerts and festivals this summer! There’s two packs to get, with each one containing nine poses plus a small amount of a controlled substance. Enjoy 😀

I can’t believe how fast July has gone! We’re already into the third week, and as the time passes the events come to a close, unfortunately. But, there’s still a couple days remaining for Summerfest’17, and C’est la vie has the ‘Febe Tankini’ exclusive to the event. Since I was planning on going to Hazardous for the photos, I figured I wouldn’t be swimming, so I’m just wearing the ‘tank’ part of the tankini. 🙂 I chose the ‘army’ version of this suit, with each colour option of the top, it comes with a bottom, which is HUD driven with an 8 colours selection. You have until July 20 to get it Sumerfest’17, but after that I would think it will be at the C’est la vie main store.

I know it’s a surprise for everyone that I didn’t pair a tank with a pair of shorts. I really wanted to, but I’ve done that way to many times already this summer, so I settled on a the ‘Dina Corduroy Mini Skirt’ from [QE] Designs. It’s a short, snug, and totally sexy mini perfect for dancing at the concert. It’s HUD driven with ten colours and fitted for the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies.

One of my favourite hair so far this summer is the ‘Hani’ hair from [monso]. This is from the blacks pack.

And again, I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at my second home for this picture, Hazardous.

Great Ideas

Great Ideas

The idea to make a machine that slices a loaf of bread was a great idea. The day I decided to cut off an electrical wire with a pair of pliers, without shutting the breaker off…..not so much. Indoor plumbing was an idea that was pure genius. The time my sister said, ‘Hey, lets crawl up the bale elevator’, wasn’t. One broken leg and much crying ensued, but then, I was only 6. 😀 Whoever had the idea for an automatic washing machine was pretty darn smart. When Dad said to me, ‘Hang on to that board while I sand it’, I should have been smart enough to see this coming and walked away! But instead I got my hand sanded with a belt sander….good idea? Nope…not even close. What I’m getting at here is that there are so many people that have great ideas, and my family and I are more like a Jackass movie!! It’s my own fault, really. I’m sure climbing the bale elevator would have been fun had I been older and a little less clumsy, my sister made it up and back safely….but no, I break my leg while at the bottom. The hand sanding(as we like to call it) was nothing more than me helping Dad out, and since I’m a people pleaser I help when someone needs it! For the record, it only bled for a little while and he laughed.. The live wire and pliers incident I have a harder time explaining, I guess I just wasn’t thinking. A note to anyone who does want to try it, don’t wear a fuzzy sweater when you do, it gets scorch marks down the front! 😀 These are just a few anecdotes that stand out it my thoughts right now, I’m sure everyone has moments like these….. at least I hope so.

The Epiphany opened yesterday, it only comes around four times a year, so it’s always exciting when the doors finally open. I was up bright and early this morning and managed to gain access to it, much to my surprise. There’s all kinds of goodies to play for this round and there’s also some gifts in celebration of The Epiphany’s birthday. Veechi is at this round and has an incredible gacha set of goodies! The ‘Desert Sun ‘ catwa make up gacha is a collection of vibrant desert colours with shadow and lip tint among the commons and one of the RARE items being lashes! I’m so excited to be able to wear all these goodies since my acquisition of the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa. I’m wearing one of the two options from the Lush Lashes, RARE prize and one of the three options from the Victoria Shadow, naturals set. In all, there’s ten commons and 2 RARE to play for. The Epiphany runs until August 15.

In the world of Group Gifts, !NFINITY has the Emme Summer Top out free for group members and it’s perfect for these hot summer days. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, Tonic, and TMP mesh bodies, and also comes in standard sizes plus, it’s HUD driven including eight colours. The group has a 50L$ one time fee to join, but with regular gifts and reduced pricing on new releases, it’s well worth it!!

There’s still a few days left in the current round of Shiny Shabby and LEGAL INSANITY has the Ella Denim Shorts exclusive to the event. They fit like a glove and look incredible with a slimming leg and a nice round butt. 😀 They’re compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies and they come in four denim tones, sold separately or as a fatpack. Shiny Shabby runs until July 20.

The July round of The Chapter Four is still going strong with lots of time left for you to get your shopping done! {MYNX} has the ‘Beach Beads’ gacha set there for your playing enjoyment. These bangles just scream fun and summery and with ten commons and two RARES to play for, you’ll have as much fun as a beer commercial. 😛 I’m wearing the ‘Beach Beads-Starfish, RARE which is colour change via drop down menu with six colours for the cord.

This is how I look before every blog post I write, if you want to know the truth, although I’m not usually smiling. 😀 RC Cluster has the ‘Really Neat Notepad and thinking pencils’ gacha set at The Epiphany and I got the ‘Great Ideas’ version to help stimulate my brain! You get the notepad and the ‘thinking pencil’ in each prize with arm poses included. Just add the two things to yourself after you’re in the pose you want and your arms will do do their thing!

You might want to zoom in a bit in flickr to catch a good look at the pretty manicure I have on. This is from the ‘Grapefruit Mimosa’ applier set from Hello Dave. It’s compatible with SLink, Omega and Maitreya nails. This is one of five colours in the mini set.

I love the ‘Satomi’ hair from [monso]. The hair is shaped into cute little kitty ears and tied loosely at the back. It’s at the Hair Fair 2017 today, but with this being the last day it should move to the [monso] main store shortly.

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo is a group gift from Carol G Tattoo Wear. I like it’s simple message that isn’t thought of enough. There’s five other group gifts available for group members at this time.

I’m using the animations HUD for the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa here to make this look that kind of looks like I’m happily thinking good things. I will admit that this isn’t the picture I wanted for this post, but after crashing a whole bunch of times while trying to take a different shot, I finally gave up and settled on this one. I just didn’t have the energy to log back in and do it all over again, I’m sure there’s a fellow blogger or two that might feel my pain. 😀 So, to make the Lilo head look fab I’m using the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. I just love this look and find it hard to try others, so Luna it is! And as always, I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

As for the nice decor around me at home, the Visual Bench 1, RARE is from the ‘Visual’ gacha set from Concept. The ‘Beach’ sign is from the Coastal Cabin gacha set from Bee Designs. The Birdacge Decor and the Ladders & Bird Houses are from the ‘Courtil’ gacha set from Myrinne.

I’m on the deck of the Boat Shack from REDGRAVE Homes and Interiors.

A Few of My Favourite Things!

A Few of My Favourite Things!

Since I seem to be lacking a brain pattern that can put multiple thoughts together, I thought a nice random list of things might pad the word count of this blog post! 😛 Here are a few of my favourite things, in no specific order!!

coffee, dogs, a rainy day, the first crocus of spring, my truck, gardening, a cozy house on a cold night, cows, making jam & jelly, Stephen King books, the smell of pine trees in the morning, new pens, pencils, and paper, playing cribbage, songs that move me, a freshly made bed, sewing, coffee, old movies, going on drives with no destination, the smell of rain on soil, sitting under a shade tree, Eddie Vedder’s music & lyrics, going bra-less, good times in Second Life, dust hanging in the air during fall harvest, coffee, good friends, great quotes, colouring, popcorn, my favourite coffee mug, baking(pies especially), cats, wading in spring puddles, watching eggs hatch, coffee!

And now, on with the information you’ve actually wanted to read!! I’ll start with a new release from {MYNX}! There’s ten Graphics Tees to choose from, this is the Polka, which I just adore, the colour combination is one of my favourites! The Tees are compatible with the major mesh bodies and have gorgeous curves!! You can find them at the {MYNX} main store or on Market Place!

The February round of Enchantment runs until the end of the month, and Le Poppycock has an incredible gacha set, as always! It’s called ‘Dream a Little’ and it contains super cute pose props with such unique poses! There’s two styles of balustrades in each pose prop and here I’m using the ‘Perhaps Someday’ pose. One of the great things about pose props from Le Poppycock is that the props are worn, so no need to rezz! The theme for this round of Enchantment is ‘Cinderella’ and Le Poppycock also has a hunt gift available.

The Sandy Saddle Shoes are one of my favourites from Slipper Originals. These flats are so cute and are perfect for the upcoming spring weather! They’re compatible with SLink, Maitreya, and TMP flat feet and the fatpack contains 16 colours and 5 metals to mix and match! You can find them on Market Place here!

The Aletta Photo Necklace is a new release from RealEvil Industries and is available at the current round of Cosmopolitan! It’s super simple to add a photo of your favourite someone and it’s also easily resizable. It’s HUD driven with lots of metal colours and also has options for glass tint! It’s not a close up, so you’re left wondering who’s photo I have in it!! 🙂

The Cuffed Corduroy pants in cocoa are from paper arrow co. They fit perfectly and go with anything!

The HARUKA hair in classy brown is from Argrace! I love when the breeze lifts my hair and cools my skin!

I’m wearing one of the nine options from the Harvest Shadows pack from Veechi! This is one of my favourite sets, with all the lovely earthy colours!

As always, I have the Alex mesh head from Logo on with the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins! I also have on the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Bento mesh hands from Vista Animations, and the flat feet from SLink.

Thrifting, Anyone?

Thrifting, Anyone?

I’m outside the Thrift Store at Missing Mile and I did find a couple things I couldn’t live without! I love thrifting…..there’s nothing more fun than entering a thrift store and hoping to find that one thing that is perfect! I collect a few things, so I’m always on the lookout for them, but there’s no telling what treasures might be in the thrift shop at each visit. It saddens me that we live in a disposable world, where everything is made to throw out and buy new…..I don’t want any part of the global consumerism that is so common now. I prefer to buy used…..the search is the fun part, it’s too convenient to go to Walmart and buy everything new, only to line the Walton family’s pockets with even more money that they don’t need. I know there is a stigma about buying used……only poor people do that or who wants someone else’s garbage….but thrifting is now a thing that’s kind of cool to do. I have friends that thrift all the time, travelling to smaller towns out in the country to find different things! It’s a great way to see some country, maybe meet new people, slow life down a bit, and embrace the theory that one mans garbage is another mans treasure!!

The Piper Boots from Slipper Originals is a recent release that I found hidden deep down in my ~ahem~ rather large inventory! They’re SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh body compatible and the fatpack has fourteen colours, and a bunch of areas to customize! You might want to have someone help you with the zipper at the back! 🙂

The Aria Crop Tank from {MYNX} is one of those tops that looks great with anything, and thankfully Second Life doesn’t have the weather extremes that real life does! I’d freeze my you-know-whats off if I wore this outside in real life! But anyway, these tops are fitted for the classic avatars plus the SLink, TMP, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies. The tops come in packs of two, a solid and a floral print in each colour…this is the olive.

When I’m showing this much skin I just can’t resist covering it with a great tattoo! This is the Circles Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t and I love this one. It’s compatible with classic avatars and also Omega and TMP mesh bodies. Also, it has three ink tones included, I just about always wear the medium tone.

I’m wearing the Ribbed Knit Leggings from Simply Sage. They’re Omega, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh body compatible only.

I love this hair! It’s one of the newest releases from Argrace! The ad for the SHIROGANE hair has a man wearing it….but I love men’s hair and couldn’t resist…it’s going to be one of my go-to hair.

I’ve changed up my skin a bit for this one! I’m wearing the Everly Omega applier in honey tone from Sinful Curves! I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo, the Lara mesh body and feet from Maitreya, and the casual hands from SLink.

I’m using a couple poses from -slouch-poses, and there’s still a glimmer of hope in me that this pose maker will come back to Second Life! So unfortunately, these are no longer available!

I love the [WoS]Missing Mile sim! It’s got that, ‘down on my luck’ feel to it and it has all kinds of grungy goodness!

What a Sad Year it’s Been!

What a Sad Year it's Been!

At the end of every year there’s always a run down of all the famous people who’ve passed away during the past year and it’s been a rough one! Along with losing someone in my close circle of friends, there’s been numerous people who I’ve known about all my life that have passed away also. It’s one of those things that a person never really thinks about. It’s obvious that I’ll outlive a lot of people that are older than me, but it isn’t something I really ponder. So, I’m always shocked when someone who I know about passes away. To find out about George Michael was a shock yesterday, I always liked Wham and then his later solo work. And in all honestly, he’s not that much older than me, which is scary! When you tally up the big name singer/songwriters that have passed away this year, it’s been way too many! I know this trend won’t end, unless of course I go before all of them, and since none of us are getting younger, I guess it’s the natural progression of life! It’s still so sad, though! Rest in peace, George Michael, Leonard Cohen, Glenn Grey, Prince, David Bowie, Merle Haggard, and any other singer/songwriters I may have missed. I hope the coming year is a better one, for anyone that has found this past year to be one of the bad ones!

I have to admit that this little mini Christmas tree from dust bunny may well be the last bit of Christmas festivity you’ll see here on What a Beautiful Mess! for awhile! I know it’s only Boxing day, and still a few days left in December, but I’m looking forward to visiting some warm and sunny sims for awhile. I do have to deal with my real life winter for….oh…..another four months or so, but I can cut winter short here in Second Life! Today, I’m on my dock at my beach cabin enjoying some warmer weather. I’m wearing the lovely Sweater Wrap from {MYNX}, and looking very stylish! I ended up not showing the beautiful cable knit sweater pattern on it as well as I had planned, but it’s really very nicely done! The Sweater Wrap would look great with leggings and boots too, but I wanted to live a little bit on the edge this time with the shorter hemline! It comes in six colours and is compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, Belleza, Tonic, and eBody mesh bodies!

I don’t know when Ivey Deschanel of SN@TCH ever sleeps, since she has new releases every Saturday! And she didn’t take Christmas Eve off, either! The Carter Hair is new, and it’s got a few things going on!! It frames the face perfectly and still has a nice bunch down the back plus it’s got this great bun on top! Carter is perfect for a topless outfit with the hair falling straight down to nipple level! 🙂

The EDELWEISS Heels are from GLAMISTRY Heels and are sure to get a second look! They’re SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya compatible and come with loads of colour options!

The Pearl Choker is from Bokeh. The fat pack is the best deal!

I love turtles, so the Turtle tattoo from Nanika is one of my favourites!

I’m once again wearing the Alex mesh head by Logo, along with the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves. I also have on the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.
