Riptide

Riptide

I was scared of dentists and the dark
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
Oh, all my friends are turning green
You’re the magician’s assistant in their dreams
Oh
Oh and they come unstuck
Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you’re singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat ’cause
You’re gonna sing the words wrong
Is this movie that I think you’ll like
This guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City
This cowboy’s running from himself
And she’s been living on the highest shelf
Oh
Oh and they come unstuck
Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you’re singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat ’cause
You’re gonna sing the words wrong
I just wanna, I just wanna know
If you’re gonna, if you’re gonna stay
I just gotta, I just gotta know
I can’t have it, I can’t have it any other way
I swear she’s destined for the screen
Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you’ve ever seen, oh
Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you’re singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat ’cause
You’re gonna sing the words wrong
Oh lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you’re singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat ’cause
You’re gonna sing the words wrong
Oh lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you’re singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat ’cause
You’re gonna sing the words wrong
I got a lump in my throat because you’re gonna sing the words wrong

Riptide‘ ~Vance Joy~

I’ve been wanting to use this song for quite awhile now, I was waiting for the right time! And what does today make it the right time, you ask? Yea….I know you’re not asking that……..but what makes today right for ‘Riptide’ is that I couldn’t think of any other song that may be a better fit than this. I actually have no idea what’s going on in this song, so the only reason for me to feature it is because it’s as good as anything else I could feature. I mean, the picture is a close up of my face……with the same ‘Liz’ expression as always….so there’s nothing new to say. Anyway, have a listen to this song….if you don’t like Vance Joy doing it, you might like Taylor Swift singing it or ever Scott Helman. It’s been done by lots of performers, surely one will jump out at you.

Today it’s all about the eyes! Check out the newest release from Veechi……the ‘Vixen Shadow’ is exclusive to this round of ~uber~. It’s compatible with the Catwa, Lelutka, and LAQ bento heads and the set has 9 colour options. ~uber~ runs until November 22.

And speaking of my eyes, they’re from the ‘Soma’ set of eyes from Zombie Suicide.

My eyelashes are from the ‘Natural 2 Eyelash’ set from Mai Bilavio.

The ‘G1204’ hair from tram is one of my all time favourites!

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.

Tied Down

Tied Down

These days the lovers trade their places
Dancing all around each other’s chairs
I can see the numbness on their faces
Jealousy fills up their hearts in pairs
So please could I be selfish with your body?
‘Cause I don’t think I could share you with nobody

Oh when I have you
I’m gonna brand you with my lips
And all of the world will know that you’re mine now
We’ll never lose faith
‘Cause we’ll never forget this taste
My love has the power to keep the tide down

Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh ill get you tied down, tied down

Ohh, late at night you’ll hear the screaming echo
But we all pretend we never heard the cries in the daytime
Don’t you worry my touch won’t leave you hollow
I’m never going to let you change your mind

Oh, when I have you
I’m gonna brand you with my lips
And all of the world will know that you’re mine now
We’ll never lose faith
‘Cause we’ll never forget this taste
My love has the power to keep your tied down

Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied, ohh
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down

Don’t be afraid to leave your mark
Give me the scars to remind me
Just how good you are (how good you are)
And if your faith turns into to dark
Pull me closer and know
That it’s enough to keep you tied down

Tied Down‘ ~Jaymes Young~

Take two…….I just deleted a whole paragraph of text while struggling to write something. Some days are so easy…and other days the only words I can put together is,’ hey, how are ya?’. Today is obviously the latter! So I’ll keep it short and simple today……..hey….how are ya? 😀

I want to show you the wonderful artwork of Sandowl from Wild Roots! Her tattoos are always highly detailed and eye catching. This is the ‘Love is Kind’ tattoo and along with the incredible message, it’s perfectly placed to show perfectly to show it to the best effect! The full saying on it is, ‘Love is patient, love is kind’ and it’s words to live by, because there’s just not enough love in this world. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies, Omega, and classic avatars so no one’s left out!

The ‘Widowmaker’ lingerie set is from [Cynful] Clothing & Co. and it’s available at Collabor88 for a few more days, then it’ll be at the mainstore. The set is compatible with the SLink(Hourglass), Belleza(Freya/Isis), and Maitreya mesh bodies and includes sheer and solid versions.

The ‘G1224’ hair from tram is so feminine with lots of wisps.

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 set 91 from Overlow Poses.

Breathe Me

Breathe Me

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And the worst part is there’s no one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Ouch, I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah, I think that I might break
Lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Breathe Me‘ ~Sia~

This song says it all today, it speaks for me. I’m so lucky to have a man in my life who does all of these, and more…..freely. ♥

The newest release from Carol G Tattoo Studio is the ‘Aura’ tattoo exclusive to the Dubai Event. The front is as beautiful as the back and there’s more on the wrists and arms to make it complete. It’s a highly complex work or art and every time I look at it I see different details not seen on first glance. It comes in black(seen here), henna, and blue and is compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven.

The ‘H0531’ hair is from tram.

And 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.

Vrir and I are using the ‘She’s Like a Fox’ couples pose from Ana Poses. It’s a pose we could really feel with it’s gentleness and comfort.

Je T’aime Till My Dying Day

Je T'aime Till My Dying Day

– Do you love me too… –
– Do you, do you, do you love me too –
Je t’aime, je t’aime mon amour
– Do you really love me –
Je t’aime
I’ll always love you
Till my dying day.

Je T’aime Till My Dying Day‘ ~Enigma~

I’m tempted to give a short list of credits for this picture and song, thinking that it says it all with nothing more needed. But then…….I was thinking about Second Life poses and how important they are and decided to talk a bit about that. First off though….one thing about an AO, they can be used as a pose and if you wait for that fraction of a second where the body is completely aligned perfectly, it can have stunning results. I rarely do this, mainly because I don’t have the timing…..or the patience for the perfect opportunity to come around again. It’s why I rarely photograph others, I need the stars to align correctly in the entire universe to get a shot I can live with. I’ve been using the same AO for a lot of years, I have tons of new bento ones, but none seem like ‘Liz’ like the one I always use…..btw….has anyone ever tried copying their AO in real life? If not……then don’t….it’s not good! 😀 Anyway, poses……….they’ve always been my Second Life fascination…even before I had a need for them. I love to watch Liz pose in all kinds of ways, and I’m super lucky that Vrir’s happy to pose with me for all the time I need to get a shot. I don’t consider myself a ‘photographer’ per se…….I just say I dabble…..but for me the pose is one of the top 3 things that makes a good photograph. Oh…believe me…..I don’t consider mine all good….but I always try. Anyway……the pose, the angle, and the lighting…….those are the big 3 things to work on, for me……..and if all 3 of those things come together in perfect symmetry…..then there’s a good chance for a great shot. Of course……I have a lot of luck with very little planning, mostly…….I cross my fingers……keep doing things until it feels right…. and then edit the crap out of it! That sometimes works too! 😀

So this shot is all about the pose…….it’s couples bento pose C.10(Ultra RARE), from IntoXx. I think the emotions it conveys will depend on the couple in the pose. Vrir and I talked about what we felt the mood is and we had differing views…..neither wrong or right….just different….so I think who you are as a couple is what you’ll see and feel in this one. The gacha set consists of 5 commons, 2 RARE and 1 Ultra RARE….male, female and couples included. IntoXx now has a store at the Voodoo in My Blood sim, too!

My all time favourite tram hair is ‘G1204’.

The question mark tattoos are ‘Enigma’ 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.

Wolves Without Teeth

Wolves Without Teeth

Open my chest and colour my spine
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all
Swallow my breath
And take what is mine
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all
I’ll be the blood
If you’ll be the bones
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all
So lift up my body
And lose all control
I’m giving you all
I’m giving you all
You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You’ll sailing from another world
Sinking in my sea, oh
You’re feeding on my energy
I’m letting go of it
She wants it
And I run from wolves, ooh
Breathing heavily
At my feet
And I run from wolves, ooh
Tearing into me
Without teeth
I can see through you
We are the same
It’s perfectly strange
You run in my veins
How can I keep you
Inside my lungs
I breathe what is yours
You breathe what is mine
You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You’ll sailing from another world
Sinking in my sea, oh
You’re feeding on my energy
I’m letting go of it
He wants it
And I run from wolves, ooh
Breathing heavily
At my feet
And I run from wolves, ooh
Tearing into me
Without teeth
And you can follow
You can follow me
You can follow
You can follow me
You hover like a hummingbird
Haunt me in my sleep
You’re sailing from another world
Sinking in my sea, oh
“You’re feeding on my energy
I’m letting go of it” she once said
And I run from wolves, ooh
Breathing heavily
At my feet
And I run from wolves, ooh
Tearing into me
Without teeth

Wolves Without Teeth‘ ~Of Monsters And Men~

I just finished breakfast, toast and jam for today, and I’ve got 8 tabs open in Google Chrome, I’m listening to YouTube and I’ve been avoiding WordPress for the last 45 minutes, knowing I have a blog post started and don’t have a clue what to write with it. I have a song……..and this is my new favourite song! I absolutely LOVE ‘Of Monsters and Men’, their lyric videos are completely captivating and this one is stunning. A pair of twins who look so much alike, but by mid song you can see the differences are many. The lyrics are mesmerizing and the singing incredible, and this is one of those songs that touches me. I think it’s the perfect song for this intimate moment with Vrir.

My hair is ‘Yumi’ by [monso] and I’m wearing the ‘Bobbi’ bodysuit by Asteria.

The pose is ‘Yours….’ by CKEY Poses.
