A Thousand Years

As much as I try, I cannot beat the power that music and lyrics deliver. So, here I stand again…letting someone else’s words speak for me….letting someone else’s melody deliver the message in my heart…even if no one is listening.

Christina Perri ~ A Thousand Years

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone?
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
One step closer
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Summer Breeze

When I was taking this photo over at Achill Island, this song stayed in my head and every single time I look at this picture…that song is right back in my head. Plus this Jolene top and jeans from Blueberry really takes me back. So, I really had no choice but to share my trip down memory lane with you. I’d love to know what thoughts you have when you look at the photo, but I’m at a loss for any other words….just a song. Happy shopping and keep on groovin!

Achill Island

So, one of my best friends is Grace Sixpence and she has recently acquired a homestead. She had the sim professionally landscaped to represent an actual island in Ireland and it is gorgeous. I could not resist going straight over and taking a photo for my blog. I will definitely return for more photos and I encourage you to do the same. She has opened it to the public and you can join her group at the landing point. You can also post your photos to her flickr group. So, after your next shopping trip, head on over to Achill Island for a great photo with a fantastic background, no matter where you pose.

Blueberry pt2

I recently did a post about mixing Blueberry sets and I promised that you’d be seeing this combination soon. I love this top so much. I know it’s supposed to be a bikini top, but I wear it with so many things. With that said, I’d like to mention that these leggings come with a hud to write your own message. I believe there are 14 charaters, 2 fonts, more than a dozen symbols…AND you can customize the colors of the letters. These Reign sneakers tie the whole thing together as they are fully customizable, as well. (I think I just made up a word, but let’s roll with it.)

Hello Darkness

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence”
~Paul Simon

I grew up listening to songs like this one, but for me…this particular song speaks to the creative part of me, the dreamer within me. It is late at night when the rest of the world is seemingly sleeping that my creative energy is at its best. I’ve written my best poems in the middle of the night and I can almost promise you that my best photos have been conceived of, or flowed along organically under the veil of night.
I remember living in Illinois when I was 21/22 and walking down to the river in the middle of the night, with my headset, pen and paper, and tissues. I almost always cried. No matter how hot or cold (and sometimes it was icy fucking cold) I could sit there on this private dock in a posh neighborhood that I had no business being in…and somehow feel like I was home. The river flowing past me, losing myself in either the music or the quiet flow of the water. It was a place that I could go to recapture my ideas and put them in order.I imagine now, the entire process would take place with a smart phone, but back then…depending on the moon for my light? I don’t know, there was something romantic about it. I suppose I’m rambling at this exact moment, as I feel myself getting lost in memories or yesteryear and I’ve got shopping to do in SL, because this creative mind of mine is alive and well at 12:30 am…there are ideas brewing!

Blueberry

This isn’t really something I do very often, but for this post I’m going to talk about two stores. Well, mostly one, but I’m going to touch on another. I’m actually thinking that I might even do this more often. We’ll see. If you’re a regular reader, you know that the only norm to my blog is the lack of one. So, let’s just dive right in.

First store, I want to touch on is Stealthic. I love not needing a hair base when I wear Stealthic hair. If anything, I need to remove my hairbase. To top it off, he has recently taken on curls and they look absolutely amazing, especially in photographs. So, if you’ve never tried it (and if not, what rock have you been under) go grab some demos and check it out for yourself.

The main store that I want to talk about is, of course, Blueberry. Here’s the thing, I’m just going to get real with you here. I’ve heard people say, “Oh I don’t buy Blueberry anymore, because whenever she releases something new, everyone on the grid is wearing it.” Okay, but have you seen how many colors she has? Have you seen how you can mix and match her pieces from one outfit to another? The picture below is a prime example. This top came with a wrap around jacket and was released along side some adorable new leggings. However, I couldn’t resist mixing this top with the bikini bottoms from her previous release. You’ll see me mixing the bikini top with the bottoms next and there was another top with the bikini….a fringed top. That one is perfect with these bottoms or jeans….or even just panties. There’s no linden law that says you must wear Blueberry the way it was released. AND the more pieces you own? The more outfits you can make…and the thing is, they’re going to match, cuz its all from her color palette. Alright, I’ll hush now so you can go shopping….and take notice of how perfectly my Eurdora sandals are matching. *winks*

Three C’s, Plus One More

The 3 C’s of Life: Choices, Chances, Changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.

I was checking blogs the other day and one of the bloggers I manage, Luane Meo, had used this quote in her photo. She didn’t elaborate or anything. She simply used to quote. When I approved her post, I told her how much I loved the quote and that I’d probably borrow it for my own blog. However, to be fair, I’d love for you to check out her photo and give it a fav as I had not heard this quote before. I can’t even find where it originated, but I did find on several sites across the world wide web.

I love this quote for so many reasons, but mainly because it can actually be applied to just about any situation. From the simplest of decisions to the most difficult. Thinking about a new hairstyle? Make the choice to take the chance to make that change. It’s just hair, it’ll grow back. Afraid of love, but feeling lonely? Make the choice to be open to taking the chance or stay lonely, right? It’s just one of those quotes that I think can really be a life changer if you apply it correctly. I don’t suggest you use it as justification to hurt someone, but to better your own life.

Of course, my favorite C word is one that seems to offend an awful lot of people, but it’s one that I identify with. I’ll never truly understand why people allow a word so much power over them. Why they allow a simple word to offend them, anger them, or make them cringe. That’s a topic for another post, though, isn’t it?

Little Black Riding Hood

So, once upon a time people didn’t mess with fairy tales too much. Once upon a time, Little Red Riding Hood was just a little country girl, whose biggest fear was a wolf that ate her granny. Well, the days of that fairy tale are over. I bring you, Little Black Riding Hood.  Though she wears a hood, she also patrols the hood. She steps out of the darkness like a badass sexy ninja and defeats all the THOTs that circle her man’s place like sharks that have smelled blood. When she’s done destroying them she poses pretty for the paparazzi before returning home to call her grandmother. “Yes, Gma, I took care of those whores!” And this little badass lived happily ever….oh hell naw, here comes somebody else wanting to start some shit.

Fish Tales

You know when they have a fishing show on TV? They catch the fish and then let it go. They don’t want to eat the fish, they just want to make it late for something. Mitch Hedberg

Yeah, that’s it for today. It’s Friday, go enjoy your weekend. ♥

Ghost of Love

Marie Fisker – Ghost of Love

Ghost of love bound unto your name;
So it be running thru my veins;
Yesterday I fell out of grace,
I made you feel bad again,
I wanted all your reasons explained;
guess I wanted too much, guess I wanted too much.
Gonna stay humbled to this rock.
Silently when I know that I belong.
Tell me stay on the right track,
You know I have faith and beliefs
In my life and just.
I guess I wanted that much…
