She’s All That

She's All That

Light it up
We’ve been a little more than just friends,
And in most cases that’s just where it ends
But I took the time to stoke up your flame
Can I get a witness to back up my claim?
Now I’m standing so close to your fire
If I say that I quit ya, you can call me a liar!
Now we’ve been a little more than just friends
And where we go now I guess that depends
If I get myself caught up in your scene-
Black hair, black coffee, and hard nicotine
I can’t sleep
I can’t eat
Need you to hold my hand before I can cross the street!
Oh yeah, she’s all that
Oh yeah, she’s all that
Sugar, you’re my comfort, whoa yeah, makes me me
Oh yeah she’s all that
Oh yeah she’s all that
I’m her silver dollar, she’s my slot machine
Oh yeah she’s all that
Oh yeah she’s all that
Oh yeah why not? Come on she’s my nicotine
That’s right
We’ve been a little more than just friends
Where we go now I guess that depends
Uh huh
Oh yeah she’s all that
Oh yeah she’s all that
Sugar, you’re my comfort, whoa yeah, makes me me
Oh yeah she’s all that
Oh yeah she’s all that
She’s my V8 motor, I’m her gasoline
Oh yeah she’s all that
Oh yeah she’s all that
I’m her silver dollar she’s my slot machine
Oh yeah she’s all that
Oh yeah she’s all that
Oh yeah why not? Come on she’s my nicotine
Nicotine
My nicotine
Oh yeah she’s
Yes she’s
Yes she is!

I find picking a pose for a photo one of the hardest parts because I always seem to ask myself ‘why’! It’s like I need Liz to have a reason to be standing the way she is, she can’t just be randomly killing time in a certain position. I have no idea why I can’t just use a pose for what it is, a moment in time that needs no explanation. So, in this instance I’m standing knee deep in water, and looking rather startled at the camera. It’s as simple as that……there’s nothing going on around me and I don’t have to have a reason for being here……I’m just busy being me! It’s a full time job, some days! 😀

The Gothic Garage Sale is open for business and [QE] Designs has the ‘Adelaide Bikini, siren’, exclusive to the event. The HUD contains 6 mermaid-like textures with gorgeous iridescent colour combinations and it’s rigged for the Maitreya, SLink(H/P), and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies. The Gothic Garage Sale runs until August 8.

The ‘MAYU’ hair is from Argrace.

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 ‘Detached’ set of poses from FOXCITY.

I made a return visit to Serendipitous Sands for this shot.

Sunrise

Sunrise

Sunrise, sunrise
Looks like mornin’ in your eyes
But the clocks held 9:15 for hours
Sunrise, sunrise
Couldn’t tempt us if it tried
‘Cause the afternoon’s already come and gone

And I said hoo…
To you

Surprise, surprise
Couldn’t find it in your eyes
But I’m sure it’s written all over my face
Surprise, surprise
Never something I could hide
When I see we made it through another day

And I said hoo…
To you

Now good night
Throw its cover down
On me again
Ooh and if I’m right
It’s the only way
To bring me back

Hoo…
To you
Hoo…

I’m a morning person by nature, so I’ve seen many sunrises in my life. Although it’s a little more difficult to be up before the sun this time of year in my part of the world. The longest day of the year has come and gone and it’s always a shock to know that the hours of sunlight will start getting shorter and we slowly march towards winter, again. But, I don’t want to think about that this morning. It’s cloudy, but the sun’s been up for about 20 minutes and it’s looking like it’s going to be another hot one. We’re in the midst of a hot and dry spell here, and no matter what anyone says….yes….it’s a dry heat…….but it’s just plain old hot! I do appreciate not being in a humid part of the country, it does make it worse, but when the sun burns down……feeling like it’s scorching everything it touches, I just want to be inside where it’s a little bit cool and dark. But right now…..the suns behind a cloud and it’s still behind the trees, not forcing me to close the blinds, so I look out and see another day ahead, full of possibilities! What’s not to be happy about…..I’m not pushing up daisies, I have a hot cup of coffee in front of me, I’m loved, and I live in one of the best countries in the world…..yup……life is good!

It’s early morning in this shot, and I’ve had a hot cup of coffee brought to me and as I look out on the vista before me I think of all the good things in my life. Liz does look cute in the morning….in a cute little nightie and tousled hair! The ‘Eloen Nightie’ in ‘buttercup’ is from [QE] Designs and available now at the Midsummer Enchantment event. The set includes the nightie and panties and has a dreamy look that’s both sexy and innocent at the same time. It’s fitted for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and is HUD controlled with 3 nightie and 2 pantie options. The Midsummer Enchantment event runs until July 9.

The ‘M116’ hair is from .:CHEVEUX:..

My little tattoo is ‘Enigma’ from Queen oF Ink.

As usual, 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 combined a pose from the ‘Fashion 01’ set of poses from C O R P U S with the attachable coffee cup in the ‘Santiago’ set of poses from Ana Poses, to create this look!

Smooth

Smooth

Man, it’s a hot one
Like seven inches from the midday sun
Well, I hear you whisper and the words melt everyone
But you stay so cool

My muñequita,
My Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa
You’re my reason for reason
The step in my groove, yeah.

And if you said, “This life ain’t good enough.”
I would give my world to lift you up
I could change my life to better suit your mood
Because you’re so smooth

And it’s just like the ocean under the moon
It’s the same as the emotion that I get from you
You got the kind of loving that can be so smooth, yeah.
Gimme your heart, make it real
Or else forget about it

Well, I’ll tell you one thing
If you would leave it’d be a crying shame
In every breath and every word
I hear your name calling me out

Well I’m from the barrio,
You hear my rhythm on your radio
You feel the turning of the world so soft and slow
Turning you ’round and ’round

And if you said, “This life ain’t good enough.”
I would give my world to lift you up
I could change my life to better suit your mood
Because you’re so smooth

And it’s just like the ocean under the moon
It’s the same as the emotion that I get from you
You got the kind of loving that can be so smooth, yeah.
Gimme your heart, make it real
Or else forget about it

And it’s just like the ocean under the moon
It’s the same as the emotion that I get from you
You got the kind of loving that can be so smooth, yeah.
Gimme your heart, make it real
Or else forget about it

Or else forget about it
Or else forget about it
Oh, let’s don’t forget about it
(Gimme your heart, make it real)
Let’s don’t forget about it
Let’s don’t forget about it
Let’s don’t forget about it
Let’s don’t forget about it
Let’s don’t forget about it

So, this is really weird…….for the first time in the history of ‘What a Beautiful Mess!’, I’m happy…..two posts in a row!! ~gasp~ I can’t believe it, either. After the long dark winter that was, it’s turning into the hot sunny summer that might be. It’s only spring still, so I don’t want to get my hopes up too high that it’s all sunshine and roses in my future, but I have to admit, I’m finding it hard to not think my future’s so bright I gotta wear shades. When it came to choosing a song I couldn’t get a feel for what I wanted, so the best thing for me to do is give my mind a rest. I took the dog out for a walk, which will now become a habit that can’t be missed until she finally wimps out in the cold weather, but with the lilacs blooming is was a really nice walk! I thought about some great dancing songs, you know the ones with the word ‘dance’ in the title, but that just seemed way too easy. Then I remembered watching Rob Thomas videos last week and thought of this one. It’s a hot one, not sure what ‘seven inches from the midday sun’ means….but yea..it was a hot one, today.

A new round of Suicide Dollz is open for business and [QE] Designs is participating!! The ‘Criss Bodysuit’ is exclusive to the 2 week event and with it’s HUD holding 6 vibrant colours and black thigh-high legwarmers to accompany it, it makes me feel like dancing! It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Physique/Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies.

I’m listening to the unisex ‘Swear Headphones’ from Lapointe & Bastchild. They’re a group gift at the main store with a HUD for resize and colour change.

I’m wearing one of my favourite hair from tram, it’s the ‘G1020’ hair from HUD A.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

The ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone is from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is the ‘Lalalalala’ pose from Del May.

Perfect

Perfect

Made a wrong turn, once or twice
Dug my way out, blood and fire
Bad decisions, that’s alright
Welcome to my silly life

Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood
Miss “No way, it’s all good”, it didn’t slow me down
Mistaken, always second guessing, underestimated
Look, I’m still around

Pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect
Pretty pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you’re nothing
You’re f*ckin’ perfect to me!

You’re so mean, when you talk, about yourself you were wrong
Change the voices in your head, make them like you instead
So complicated, look how big, you’ll make it
Filled with so much hatred, such a tired game
It’s enough! I’ve done all I can think of
Chased down all my demons, I’ve seen you do the same

Oh, pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you’re nothing
You’re f*ckin’ perfect to me

The whole world’s scared, so I swallow the fear
The only thing I should be drinking is an ice cold beer
So cool and limed and we try, try, try
But we try too hard and its a waste of my time
Done looking for the critics ’cause there everywhere
They don’t like my jeans, they don’t get my hair
Exchange ourselves and we do it all the time
Why do we do that, why do I do that?
Why do I do that?

Oh, pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you’re nothing
You’re f*ckin’ perfect to me!
You’re perfect, you’re perfect

Perfect‘ ~Pink~

Just a song today, it’s another cold gloomy day here, where the snow won’t melt and we’re a little over 2 months to the longest day! Then they start getting shorter again! That thought alone makes me want to run away, very far away!

Today I’m out on the beach at Salt Water, the seagulls are dipping and diving above me and the warm ocean breeze feels so nice! I’m looking pretty hot too, all because of the ‘Britta Kini’ from [QE] Designs, which is available now at the Black Fair. It’s a strappy little number that shows off curves and accentuates the positive! It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza(Isis & Freya) mesh bodies and the HUD contains 6 vibrant colour combinations. The Black Fair runs until April 20.

So, about this tattoo! There’s a few things in this life that I have a ‘thing’ for, and one of them is turtles and tortoises, well I guess that’s 2! 😀 There’s a story that goes along with why I’m enthralled by them that I won’t get into at this time, but I’ll just add that I do have a turtle tattoo in real life! So, when Sandowl released this beauty of a sea turtle tattoo in the Wild Roots main store I was more than thrilled! This is so gorgeous, with intricate detailing, perfect placement and comes in a black and white(seen here) and a colour version. The colours being soft muted tones perfect for summer! It’s compatible with the big 3 mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven along with a tattoo layer for classic avatars.

The ‘HARUKA’ hair is from Argrace.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Raine Gen2’ skin in tone 210 from Avada, it’s available now at The Makeover Room. It’s worn on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is pose 29 from .MILA..

Hood Ornament

Hood Ornament

Has anyone noticed the lack of hood ornaments on cars? That’s what used to make a vehicle interesting back in the day! My Dad used to have an early 50’s Ford truck and it had this huge airplane on the hood, I mean it was HUGE! It was one of the most noticeable things on a vehicle and made each one distinguishable from the rest. Nowadays, everything looks alike, at least for me. I have no idea how I’d identify the make of a car if I needed to! Unless I see the back with the name on it I don’t have a clue. I mean, I can tell the difference between the ‘H’ of a Honda versus a Hyundai, but most of the basic sedans are all the same to me. So, if you happen to commit a crime with me watching you’re pretty sure to get away, because when the cops ask what the vehicle looked like I’d have to say it was a sedan…..make or year, you ask? Ummm……….could have been a Ford or Chev…not sure…maybe a Subaru….maybe from somewhere between 1998 and 2015? *shrugs* I’m better with trucks, which were always called ‘half tons’ here, until we adopted the more American term ‘pick up’! Oh….and here it has been known as an ‘end gate’ not a ‘tail gate’, but now I’m splitting hairs! Anyway, just thinking out loud this morning!

I may be one of the more unique hood ornaments in recent memory! I’m not sure what this fashion style would be called, but a friend did say, ‘that’s not gangster!’….and since I’m a farm girl from Canada, I’m about as far removed from ‘gangsta’ as a person can be! I started out with the ‘Dina Denim Mini Skirt'(ephasis on the word ‘mini) and the ‘Gigi Hoodie’ which are 2 of the 3 parts of the ‘Lush’ outfit from [QE] Designs. The outfit includes the ‘Aly Boots’, which I’m not wearing here, and the whole thing is on sale this weekend at the main store. The hood on the hoodie is detachable and I chose not to add it this time, to be a little cooler in this desert environment. 🙂 All parts are HUD driven with lots of colour options and fitted for the 3 major mesh bodies.

I absolutely love the ‘Flowers Galore’ tattoo from Wild Roots!! It comes in colour and black and white versions, with 3 ink tones and is compatible with pretty much any body you may be using. I’m a huge fan of flora and fauna so this was a no-brainer when choosing a tattoo to wear. The detailing is amazing, as is to be expected from Sandowl Violet, and this is one of the more spectacular works! It’s available now at The Skin Fair 2018, which runs until March 25. I’m not sure if it’s slowing down at all but here are the slurls for the north sim and the south sim.

The ‘Jessie’ hair and hat combo are from a collaboration between Besom X Flite. It’s from a gacha and it’s my go-to hair when I want to have a bit of attitude!

As always, my looks all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added a bit of eye shadow from the ‘Tiana Eye make up’ set from Zibska.

This is the ‘Jump Me, male’ pose from Del May!

I’m on top of the car beside the ‘Better call Saul’ billboard at Mother Road.
