No one can love you the way I do

Standard

Another year slips by and that age on my driver’s licence rolls forward by one.  I do not always put so much stock in numbers but this one feels a bit bittersweet.  I’ve enjoyed my thirties, I have told most people that when I hit thirty I was elated, not sad.  I found people took me more seriously without that dreaded twenty in front of a number, dismissing me.  I was a bit wiser, I got on the right path for me, and I had my son.  I’ve had my losses along the way too in this decade, I lost my grandfather the day I turned 31.  My rock, my hope, my inspiration and so much more.  I lost a dear friend to a horrific accident taken from her family and the children she taught all too soon.  This decade has shaped me, it has brought me friends, love, life, loss, pain, growth and hope.  Here is to year thirty nine, I am curious to see how I bring this decade to a close this year before I make that dreaded leap over the hill in 2016.

On Mr. Marvin… you will need to send him an IM in world to ask for what he has on, I have no idea!

I will paint you in silver, I will wrap you in cold

Standard

Light, like the flutter of wings, feel your hollow voice rushing into me
As you’re longing to sing
So I… I will paint you in silver, I will wrap you in cold
I will lift up your voice as I sink

Your sins into me
Oh, my beautiful one, now
Your sins into me
As a rapturous voice escapes, I will tremble a prayer
And I’ll beg for forgiveness
(Your sins into me) Your sins into me

If you love unicorns, I feel you need to get yourself in to Collabor88 pretty soon if you have not already been.  It is all things unicorn right now and the colors and ideas are pretty awesome.  They range from quite elegant to playful and downright over the top rainbows.  Enjoy!!

She took my heart, I think she took my soul

Standard

Stranded in this spooky town,
Stoplights are swaying and the phone lines are down
Floor is crackling cold,
She took my heart, I think she took my soul
With the moon I run,
Far from the carnage of the fiery sun

There is a big mix of new items out so I want to try to highlight them as best I can as well as a few other points.  My brain is running in a hundred directions so try to stay with me on all this, ok?

Firstly have you seen these rings from Izzie?  They are out at My Slink Obsession now, available in gold, silver and copper.  She has made them to fit a few of the more common slink hand shapes.  And for all of us that have put on the Maitreya body and not taken it off just remember you can wear your slink hands with it still.  The XS fits the body so that there is no gap, any other side will leave one.

Other new releases out include this gorgeous hair from Magika at the store and marketplace, Amberly II from Glam Affair is out now in some gorgeous tones and makeups at The Chapter Four and you can find this dress from Peqe and Headpiece/Necklace from Zibska at We <3 Roleplay.

Time to ring in the new year in SL and what a posh way to do it.  I fell in love with these sequin skirts from Tres Blah at Uber the moment I set eyes on them.  I wont tell you how much damage I actually did at the event, but considering it was a very posh theme, I had a very posh time expanding my SL wardrobe.  Everything here from Glam Affair’s gorgeous December II to Little Bones Hair, Fox’s Fur Wrap, Yummy’s decadent jewelry and of course Tres Blah’s show stopping outfit was found at Uber.  I suggest a shopping trip, and kiss those Christmas lindens goodbye.  :p

Whimsical

Standard

We <3 Roleplay is right around the corner.  With two short days until opening there December Round will not disappoint.  Rack Poses is releasing two sets of poses which will help complete any fun fantasy picture.  I am using Whimsical here which comes with 5 poses each with a flute prop.  (I tinted mine for this photo to match the copper theme!)  Soul has created heaps of fun fantasy ears which have a great little tattoo tinting system to enhance the edges.  They are suited to match with their skins but will also be giving skin creators the option to make their own.  I personally had little trouble tinting them to match my Glam Affair skin but as always try the demo!

Speaking of, this is one of the many stunning skins you can pick up at The Arcade.  I had a lot of fun mixing things up and breaking away from my standard Asia tone and playing with Africa.  Her machine is full of a great mix of tones and makeups which should please most everyone.  Good luck!

Just Getting Started

Standard

I knew the minute that I picked you up
It was gonna be a wild ride
You kissed me like you couldn’t get enough
Barely made it out of your drive
Burning a little rubber at the red light
Got a little warning from the blue lights
It’s only going on 9 o’clock but feels more like midnight

And now for something completely different.  To answer the questions of plurk, no, he does not come with the Arcade set nor is he the extra secret rare.  He is my avatar.  Well not Autumn, my MALT.  Sorry!  I just felt he had that rough around the edges feel that this Garage from Consignment required.  Can you collect all the pieces including the rare Motorcycle and building?

I want to toss a special shout out to Harvest and Katya who after trying to molest me last night assisted.  I was having graphic card issues that I have hopefully fixed but they brought a pose and moral support and helped me get the raw shot I needed after some technical difficulties.
