Just Breathe

Just Breathe

Yes, I understand that every life must end, uh-huh
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, uh-huh
Oh I’m a lucky man, to count on both hands the ones I love
Some folks just have one, yeah, others, they’ve got none

Stay with me…
Let’s just breathe…

Practiced are my sins, never gonna let me win, uh-huh
Under everything, just another human being, uh-huh
I don’t wanna hurt, there’s so much in this world to make me bleed

Stay with me
You’re all I see…

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me

As I come clean…
I wonder everyday, as I look upon your face, uh-huh
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take, oh no

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave…

Did I say that I need you?
Oh, did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
And I come clean, ah…

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
Hold me ’til I die
Meet you on the other side…

Just Breathe‘ ~Eddie Vedder~

I’ve been given a golden opportunity to use a much loved song by Eddie Vedder and I’m not going to miss the chance, even though I know I’ve used it before. I’ll never tire of this song, and as I sit here writing I’m listening to it again, even though I’ve heard it more times than I can count. Heck, I sing along, not well……but I’m sure EV doesn’t mind. You might notice that I’m wearing the ‘Just Breathe Back Tattoo’ from Wild Roots here and it has everything I love in a tattoo, it’s not too busy, it’s in a great place for showing it off, and it says something….and in a font I can read! I like tattoos that have a message, I’m not into saying I’m gangsta….mainly because I’m not and I’m not sure I ever could be, but something positive and kind is always good. If it has some sort of flora or fauna is also good, and this has a rose, which I like. Although a rose isn’t one of my favourite flowers…..I’m more of a daisy kind of woman. 🙂 The tattoo comes with 3 colours for the rose, black(seen here) red, and pink, and all are very pretty. It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven and there’s a tattoo layer for the classic avatars still out there. It’s available now at The Darkness Event which runs until September 30.

The panties are from the ‘Date Night’ lingerie set from Blueberry and they’re so pretty.

And here’s another one of my favourite hair from tram, the ‘H0527’.

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

This is the ‘Heartbeat’ couples pose from Valor Poses and it’s a group gift right now. The group is 250L$ to join, but right now there’s this one and a set of poses for women available to group members and there’s regular group gifts released. The sim is under construction right now, so be careful where you step. 🙂

And thank you Vrir, just breathe. ♥

Love

Love

Look at you, kids, with your vintage music
Comin’ through satellites while cruisin’
You’re part of the past, but now you’re the future
Signals crossing can get confusing

It’s enough just to make you feel crazy, crazy, crazy
Sometimes, it’s enough just to make you feel crazy

You get ready, you get all dressed up
To go nowhere in particular
Back to work or the coffee shop
Doesn’t matter ’cause it’s enough
To be young and in love
To be young and in love

Look at you, kids, you know you’re the coolest
The world is yours and you can’t refuse it
Seen so much, you could get the blues but
That don’t mean that you should abuse it

Though it’s enough just to make you go crazy, crazy, crazy
I know, it’s enough just to make you go crazy, crazy, crazy

But you get ready, you get all dressed up
To go nowhere in particular
Back to work or the coffee shop
It don’t matter because it’s enough
To be young and in love
To be young and in love

Don’t worry, baby
Don’t worry, baby

And it’s enough just to make me go crazy, crazy, crazy
It’s enough just to make me go crazy, crazy, crazy

I get ready, I get all dressed up
To go nowhere in particular
It doesn’t matter if I’m not enough
For the future or the things to come
‘Cause I’m young and in love
I’m young and in love

Love‘ ~Lana Del Rey~

Just a song for you this evening, but I want to bring your attention to the gorgeous ‘Roses Harvest’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio, which is available now at Cosmopolitan. This is the black version, and there’s also a colour, and a green version available also. The incredible detail of the roses along with the intricate design on the shoulders with more roses on the back make this tattoo really stand out. It has a vintage feel to me, with an elegance that can completely carry an outfit all on it’s own. I’ve chosen to pair it with pearls………nothing but pearls. Cosmopolitan runs until August 25,

The pearls are the ‘Marilyn Necklace’ from If Design, and the set includes 3 strands for the front and 2 that drape down the back.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

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.

A Little Bit of Happiness, yeah

A Little Bit of Happiness, yeah

What you gonna do?
What you gonna do with people like that?
What you gonna say
What you gonna say that will make them change their minds

Who you gonna find
Who you gonna find to listen anyway
Where you gonna go,
Where you gonna go to try and get it straight
I once found the recipe, for what to do to cure my needs
I packed some things just what I need
Only bare necessities
Asked Mrs Walsh to feed my cat
Calling Lord Tate to tell him that
I’m going home where my people live
Need a little bit of happiness, yeah
Who’s it gonna be
Who’s it gonna be who’ll tell it like it is
Who you gonna blame
Who you gonna blame for all our differences
Where’s it gonna end
Where’s it gonna end if anywhere at all
Where you gonna go
Where you gonna go if you can’t take it all?

I once found the recipe, for what to do to cure my needs
I packed some things just what I need
Only bare necessities
Asked Mrs Walsh to feed my cat
Calling Lord Tate to tell him that
I’m going home where my people live
Need a little bit of happiness, yeah

Write a little note and apologise
To the next door so they realise
Call up little Max and her sister Jean
Say sorry for inconveniencing
Order a cab, take it to, the bus station up on 42
I’m going home, where my people live
I need a little bit of happiness yeah

Happiness‘ ~Johnathan Jeremiah~

What’s going through her mind? She looks to be in very deep thought, not fully aware of what her surroundings are and the intense stare is somewhat unnerving. Is she thinking of her past, and the hurt and pain that’s been such a large part of it? Or maybe, how she overcame that and has become a person that she can be proud of. She might be thinking about past relationships and what part they play in the woman she is today. Or maybe what’s on her mind is the time she’s spent worried about the past and the future with no regard at all about how to enjoy the today. And how can someones thoughts not go to the unpleasantness of losing someone close, when there’s always something to remind who is lost. There are so many things that could be in her mind, and maybe they’re all there, in some way, but one thing’s for sure……if she was a guy…..he’d be wondering if there’s any leftover pizza! Ah, the most basic difference between men and women……they can share the exact same look, but the thoughts inside are as different as night and day! Gotta love it! 😀

I’m wearing the ‘Saron’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo and I have to say it’s one of my favourites! It comes in black and pink, each with 4 ink tones and the amazingly complicated lines combined with the gorgeous roses on the front and back make for an eye full. It extends onto the hands and the rose and little line of flowers connect it all perfectly. The line of flowers down the abdomen is also eye catching. It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies plus Omega. It’s available now at Cosmopolitan Events which runs until June 16.

The cute little top from the ‘Irma Bikini’ is perfect for getting lots of sun! It’s a fairly new release from *Just BECAUSE*. It’s fitted for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and comes in tons of colours, the top and bottom are both on/off with toggle and there’s a mini pack of prints that can be purchased separately, or it’s included with the fatpack.

The jeans are the ‘Lila Rolled Cuff Jeans’ from Blueberry.

The ‘H0125’ hair is from tram.

As per 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.

I’m sitting at the easel near the landing point at Isle of May here, but I’m using a pose from the ‘Bored’ set of poses from K&S Poses.

What a Beautiful Mess!

What a Beautiful Mess!

When I thought about starting a blog I really had no idea what I was doing. I had been writing little blurbs on flickr to go along with my very early, and less than stellar pictures, but I really had no clue what a blog would involve. I was a noob, what can I say, but the good thing about that is, we all were at one point. There is no one on this planet who didn’t start something as a beginner. In all honesty I can say that I can’t look at my past pictures, and there are times that I’d love to delete them and just have my newer pictures on flickr. But, there’s no way I’m doing that because all of my pictures on flickr are a visual diary of my Second Life. It may be a little rough around the edges, but like my past in real life, it can’t be denied and it’s something to be proud of, seeing the changes and hopefully getting better. I hope 5 years from now I can look back at pictures I do today and not want to look at them, it means I’ve gotten better, and there’s always room for improvement, for anyone. What I was going to write about is the name of the blog! The song, ‘Beautiful Mess‘ by Diamond Rio came on the radio one day when I was considering a blog and once I heard the line, ‘what a beautiful mess’ I knew that was IT! I do admit I’ve gone through many phases of music tastes and country has been in the rotation at times. On a side note, I have to say I’m not a fan of what today’s country music has become. There are some artists I like, but the early 90’s country was some of the best in my opinion. So anyway, that’s where the name of the blog came from, I added the exclamation mark to it, because I’m totally infatuated with them! Seriously…..I know I over use them…but I can’t seem to stop! Please…someone……I think I need help giving them up. 😀

It’s all about the ink today! I know I’ve mentioned my love for virtual tattoos in the past, but I’ll say it again. I just love tattoos in Second Life, so many great artists, and one of the best in my opinion is Sandowl Violet of Wild Roots, which used to be Pimp My Sh!t, for anyone who’s been out of touch these last months. She’s so creative and her artwork has such fantastic detail, oh…and she’s a fellow Canadian, HI5! 😀 This is the ‘Queen’ version from the ‘Chess Pieces’ matching couples tattoos. There’s a ‘king’ version included too, so you can take your pick. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies, including Omega and also TMP mesh bodies and the classic avatars that are still out there. Pimp My Sh!t releases are still available on the upper floor of the main store.

I’m wearing the ‘Tinker’ panties from Blueberry here! One thing for sure is they know how to make sexy panties!

One of my favourite hairs from NO.MATCH is NO.SHELTER. It’s a classic!

This is completely edited, but I’ll mention I’m wearing the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is ‘Out of Patience’ from Del May.

Music is the Voice of the Soul

Music is the Voice of the Soul

The fact that I can’t create my own music doesn’t mean that I don’t feel it or allow it to speak for me. When someone shares a song or song lyrics with me I feel it gives me a bit deeper look at what’s inside that person. I think if they’ve used a certain song to speak for them, they feel that it says what they want to say. A lot of songs can be interpreted differently, but it’s all about knowing the person and what they would feel a song is saying. I’m not sure if sharing an angry song with someone is really going to convey your feelings if you’re mad at them, but it’s worth a try! But when it comes to love and caring and telling someone they mean the world to you, you can’t go wrong with the right song. There’s something about music that will always make people close, so if you’re having trouble saying the words you want someone to hear from you, find a song that says what you need to say and send it to them, because ‘when words fail, music speaks’.

I love this tattoo from K-tarsis Designs! It’s the ‘Music is Soul’ tattoo and the script down the spine can be worn with or without the musical notes on the arms. It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies plus Omega and is exclusive to the eBento event.

The hair is F516 from tram.

My look 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.

The pose is ‘Interior Design’ from Del May.
