Moondance

Moondance

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

[Chorus:]
Can I just have one a’ more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love

Well, I wanna make love to you tonight
I can’t wait ’til the morning has come
And I know that the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you’re never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can’t hide

Moondance‘ ~Van Morrison~

It’s cloudy and cool, a bit of drizzle coming down and a light breeze from the north makes it cooler than the temperature suggests. The lights are low and the house is warm as I sit in a mostly dark computer room, with only a salt lamp casting a dim light beside the computer. The dog’s stretched out on her bed, sound asleep, and everything outside is tucked in for the night, which leaves me here to sit quietly and think. I’ve had far too much coffee today, I’ve seen too much news, and although the day was quiet, I’m a little unsettled. I can enjoy this cozy solitude though, I have a beautifully scented candle burning and I’m really tempted to get the furnace to kick in to have it really toasty in here this evening. This is my reality at this moment, but what I want to be doing? The picture is worth a thousand words, snuggled warmly in Vrir’s arms, both of us elegantly dressed, the piano awaits someone to play so we can dance long into the night, pressed close together. Because it’s a marvelous night for a moon dance, with the stars up above in the sky. And I can’t deny it’s a fantabulous night to make romance ‘neath the cover of August(?) skies. Tonight in my thoughts I’m going to dance like no one’s watching and love like I’ve never been hurt. β™₯

I’m wearing the form fitting and elegant ‘Nadine Gown’ from *Just BECAUSE* for the evening of romance and dancing. It’s a new release at the main store and it’s truly gorgeous. It’s simple top leaves the perfect amount of skin for the imagination, the flowing skirt that trails beautifully behind, and the brocade detailing all make this a classic. It comes in 32 colours and is fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies.

The gorgeous ‘Bloom’ hair is from Truth Hair, this is from the ‘Multitone 1’ set.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

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 one of the animations from the ‘Distressed Grand Piano, dark’ from Nutmeg and available now at Shiny Shabby.

The ‘Sepia Peonies’ from Nomad are on the piano.

Sad Reflection

Sad Reflection

This is the day that I’m sure most people take a few minutes for sad reflection. I can’t believe it’s been 16 years since that terrible day. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing, as I’m sure most people can. It was a cool fall day, I’d gone for my daily 1 mile walk and enjoyed the clean crisp air. I’d made a pot of coffee for my mid morning break and it was then I decided to turn on the TV. Which was actually really weird, because I never watch morning TV. But, I did and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I was disturbed and in utter disbelief as the events unfolded, I couldn’t look away and as it progressed I couldn’t comprehend it all. As the years have passed I still think about that day and how everyone woke up that morning, got ready for work and carried on like it was any other day, thankfully, not knowing what was to happen. Never forget! β™₯ It’s also at this time of year that 14 years ago I was at the lowest point of my life, and struggling to find a reason to carry on. Needless to say, I did manage to get through it, it’s been a lot of work and some very tough times since, but I think I’ve got it together, now! Better late than never, I guess! πŸ˜€ If only I knew then what I know now, I could have maybe prevented it, but ultimately it was that point in my life that things started turning around. Everything happens for a reason, and in order for me to rise up and live again, I had to hit that dark and cold rock bottom. So, today is a day to remember, of loved ones lost, of the strength of the human spirit, and to live each day with love and acceptance, and to never waste even one minute.

I love how this turned out, I must say! I’m showing you the ‘Amal’ hair from [BAD HAIR DAY], and this is the one hair that I will never let get lost in my inventory! It’s jaw dropping gorgeous and incredibly versatile and very flattering to ‘muh face’! πŸ˜€ I’ll remind you that the colour palette from [BAD] is huge, and oh so gorgeous! I’ll never tire of this combination here. I love soft blues and purples, and all the other colour combinations there is. There’s ten colour packs to choose from, or the fatpack, and each set has 28 colours. On top of that, the hair has two layers to customize independently so there’s a huge amount of combinations possible! ‘Amal’ is available now at the [BAD] main store or on Market Place.

Take a minute to zoom in close to see the ‘Cloudy Day Necklace’ a bit better! It’s from !NFINITY and has matching earrings included. The necklace and right and left earrings are all HUD driven separately so you can mix and match, and with each piece having 12 options, it should work for anything you might want to wear it with. I’ve picked the stormy option, which was kind of fitting today!

As per usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘meil’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. You can only see a little bit of the ‘Dark Metallic Eyeshadow’ from Izzie’s, that I’ve added!

This gorgeous pose is ‘Sad Reflection’ from Del May. The variety of singles and couples poses are incredible. All of the poses are expressive, super natural looking, and unique, which should really kick your creativity into overdrive!

Random Truth

Random Truth

I’m sitting here enjoying a little downpour of rain and thinking about some absolutes in life! So here are a few of my thoughts on this quiet Saturday evening! (my Saturday nights are always quiet…I wouldn’t know what to do if they weren’t!)

1) Garage sales are proof that one person’s junk is another person’s treasure!

2) What makes a person beautiful(men included) is their personality!

3) You’re never too old to act like a kid! It’s a fact that being young is wasted on children, who have no grasp of it’s significance!!

4) True rock and roll is pretty much dead, with the only musicians keeping close to it’s roots are all senior citizens!

5) Today’s country music is NOT country music! I have no idea what the heck it is……but it’s not the country music of my day!

6) Nothing tastes better than a cup of coffee outside after a big job is finished!

7) Life can be sad…and there’s nothing that can change that fact!

8) In most cases, people don’t know what they’ve got til it’s gone!

9) If something isn’t enjoyable to you…..don’t do it….life’s too short!

10) Red Bull looks like urine…and you can’t convince me otherwise!

And now…..on with the show! I’ll start it off with this great little tank and shorts set from More Than Ever! Designer Showcase has opened it’s doors for another round and More Than Ever has released the Layercake Tank and Shorts set. There are three different sets to choose from, and this is from the Hot Earth set, with the tank being HUD driven with three colour options, five sizes, and a whole lotta comfortable style! The shorts are Omega and Maitreya compatible and have a cutout option(seen here) or an inset version, which bares no skin! Designer Showcase runs until the end of the month!

The Zoie Sneakers from Slipper Originals are an adorable pair of footwear!! They’re at the current round of REVAMPED! They come in four solid colours and two prints for the event and they’re SLink, TMP, and Maitreya compatible! I love sneakers in the summer time! They look great, and feel great, sans socks….they go with anything, and they make me feel footloose and fancy free, whatever that is! πŸ™‚

Here’s a close look at the Sunkissed Cheeks from Veechi! It’s available at the current round of anyBODY and it makes me more adorable than I already am!! It has three tones of freckles, blush or both freckles and blush, I’m wearing the dark tone with both! It’s compatible with the Catwa, Lelutka, Logo, and Genesis Labs(seen Here) mesh heads and also available in the tattoo layer for the classic avatars! anyBODY runs until June 28!

The poses are from the On Sundays pose packs from Le Poppycock, and available at the current round of The Chapter Four!

The Eva hair from Mina Hair is one of my all time faves!

I’m on the deck of my beach cabin at Summerwind South for these pictures!

Moodswing

Moodswing

If I needed one word to describe me consistently over the course of my life, ‘moodswing’ would be it! It’s always a roller coaster where my moods are concerned. Why I mention this right now is that the song, ‘Moodswing’ is my newest favourite song! It’s from a new album by Jeff Healey. March 8th marked this great guitarists passing, and in honour of what would have been his 50th birthday this year, his estate has released an album of previously unreleased music. It’s called Heal My Soul and it’s well worth a listen…or two! Or, like in my case, just lots and lots of listening!

Let’s move along and get to why we’re here! The Convivi outfit is a new release from FLIPPANT and it’s the real deal! It’s all rigged mesh and HUD driven and includes a Jacket Dress in 5 standard sizes plus a fitted version for mesh bodies, legwarmers, rigged to fit classic avatars and the Maitreya Lara and SLink(hourglass & physique) mesh bodies, and shoes for the SLink high feet and the Belleza mesh body. It’s all controlled from one HUD and there’s four nice colours to select from.

The very pretty nail applier is available at the current round of Cosmopolitan from -{ZOZ}-. The Soft Rain Polish nail applier is compatible with SLink, Maitreya, Belleza, and -{ZOZ}- mesh nails and has nine colours to choose from! You can purchase the appliers individually or all in a fatpack .

The Medusa hair is from {Letituier} and available at The Fantasy Collective.

The Yasmine skin in Bronze tone is from .::WoW Skins::..

Poses from -slouch- poses, but no longer available!

I’m at After the Fall for the pictures.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter

I’d like to wish all of my faithful readers and followers a very Happy Easter! It’s a little earlier in the year than usual, but it makes spring seem that much closer! No, it’s not quite spring yet in my little corner of the world, but we are getting there! The first crow has returned, the robins are here again and the geese are flying over in droves, but there’s no singing of frogs or salamanders coming from the slough yet and nothing has actually grown so far. When I see the first sign of green, be it weeds, grass, or one of the ever hardy perennials in the garden, then I’ll say, “Spring has sprung!”.

I donned a pair of ears for the occasion! I know it’s not original, but I did try! The ears are the Luxury Faux Rabbit Ears from Sweet Thing! This is from the RARE HUD.

I want to show you the newest release from {MYNX}! It’s the Cargo Heart Skirt and it’s a nice comfy mini that isn’t so short your hoo haa shows! I like that! It comes in packs of two, with a plain version (khaki seen here), and one with a lively little heart design. It comes in eight colours and is available at the {MYNX} main store!

The MAGNOLIA Heels are the most recent release from GLAMISTRY. They come in oodles of colours but the fatpack has all the options a shoe lover could want! They’re SLink, Maitreya and Belleza compatible!

I chose a gorgeous pink for my nails! It’s from the Tender Heart set from FLIPPANT! The pack contains six designs and is at a super reasonable price! A great pedi is so important! πŸ™‚

The lovely Yasmine skin in Bronze tone is from .::WoW Skins::. and is the exclusive to the Skin Fair 2016. It’s the last day of the Skin Fair today, but Yasmine will be at the main store after that.

The Annalee hair is from Dameselfly. Β It’s available at The Fantasy Collective.

The Mumford Top from Vinyl is from a gacha from the Luck of the Irish Gacha Fair, which ends today. I’m sure the gacha will be at the main store after today, though.

The incredible pose is from the Reverberation A pack from Le Poppycock, and, like always, perfect!

I revisited Maison de L’amitie for these pictures.
