Viva La Vie Boheme!

I’ve been in kind of a funk lately and unable to snap out of it, no matter how hard I tried. The other night my friend Krisy decided to drag me off of my platform and give me just what the doctor ordered. A Second Life Fashion shopping trip that revolved around accentuating the adorable Deco mesh tutu she bought me! Honestly, nothing cheers a girl up more than shopping and tutus… except maybe the RENT soundtrack, shopping and tutus… but ANYWAYS!!!

See the results of our galavanting below!

Hey Mister, She's My Sister

We got our shirts from Sn@tch. I don’t know why I don’t shop at Sn@tch more often, that is going to change!

Our boots are the Triumph Boots from Gos. I am in absolute love with them and wear them every chance I get.

Viva La Vie Boheme!

I had a total blast taking these photos.  My evening w/Krisy reminded me that my SL world is wide open, I just need to step off my platform and enjoy the ride!

Viva La Vie Boheme!

Take care of each other <3

But My Heart Lives Where You Are…

I’ve been around Second Life for some time now, I have had different avatars and lived different SLives. Each and every one of them has been inspiring in its own right. However, I always find myself being drawn back to a time when I was involved in the SL music scene and inspired by the ridiculous amount of talent that dwells within it. One of my very favorite musical artists is PM Bookmite (musician Phillip Mitchell in real life). The man can write a song, wrap it around his little finger, and twist and bend it until it takes on a life of its own.

One of my favorite songs is off of an album called Therapy. The name of the song is simply… Love. Grab your tissues ladies, it’s a tearjerker.

Love by Phillip Mitchell

I know you are hurting
I read it in your touch
I feel close but far away
It’s never quite enough
You read to me last night
And every word was true
Someone else’s old love letters
Open the door to you

Love, love’s waiting here for you
What else can I do to show you?
Love, love shouldn’t shut you out
Or leave you with your doubts
When I can hold you

Remember all this open space
Is just a great façade
Highways run long distance
But my heart lives where you are

And if you change your mind love
And words come spilling out
These tired arms will wrap around
The promise I’m without

Gutters Form the Stars

Few words today, only music. This photo is inspired by Smashing Pumpkins new song Glissandra. Tomorrow I might post some RL photos from the private concert and backstage event I’m going to for them tonight, stay tuned!
Gutters Form the Stars

Glissandra
Fallen lovers and useless friends
Must you glare?
As life uncovers our unions pulled threadbare
Pleasure taps it’s vein
I’ve been hungry and I’ve been full
And I’ve been sated some more
I used to know what for
I used to know
All hours look the same
I used to know
What a wish was for
Magic plumes my soul
Pyramids for sale
Full moons on the rail
Pipers play for dawn
Hypnotized, unwind these lines around my head
What’s left for me to leave for you unsaid?
You can’t fill with dread
[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/glissandra-lyrics-smashing-pumpkins.html ]
I’ve been hungry and I’ve been full
Molten at the spoke
I used to know what for
I used to know what for
La-la-la-la-la…
A pluck on spiders strings
Gutters form the stars
Children cry out proud
As embers blast my heart
Broken where I’d stop
I used to know
What a wish was for
I used to know
What a wish was for
Stolen like a lark
Flicks on tender wrists
Abuse the modern mind
Crush on what you’ll find
La-la-la-la-la

You Heard Me, I’m an L’APH Girl

Sorry I’ve been neglecting you all. I had a death in the family and was out of town for a bit, but I am back and ready to blog. Have I told you how much I missed you?? Well, I did. So MUAHS! Now, to the goodies!

For the last month or so, I’ve been keeping tabs on designer Aphrodite Outlander. You see, I follow her on Plurk and she has been posting W.I.P (that’s “work in progress”) photos on her Plurk timeline, teasing us with visions of high quality, luxurious women’s apparel. I was so excited when she finally opened  L’APH and I was able to slip into her garments! (Get your mind out of the gutter, will you!)

aph-dress_003_tweaked

Take the gorgeous Eva dress, for instance. Completely va-va-voom, yet still incredibly classic and elegant. The dress is available in 12 colors, but I chose the black dress to set off my new hair from [e]! I paired the classy frock with red mesh leather heels, also from L’APH, and a cute as a button clutch from Izzie’s.

APH-Dress-Closeup---Tweaked

In this photo you can definitely glimpse the va-va-voooom of this outfit! The very detailed cleavage of my gorgeous Faith skin from Izzie’s gives the smexy factor a little boost. Have I told you how much I love this skin? I’m sure I have, but I’m going to tell you again. I love everything about it, from the breast shading options (cleavage and regular), and the freckle tattoos to the different eyebrow selections. She really did think of everything. Just above my luscious bosom is Maxi Gossamer’s Marrakesh Heart necklace. It’s no secret that I’m a Maxi stalker, I’m pretty sure there’s a restraining order out there somewhere with my name on it. But anyways, you can get this lovely little heart, with all of its exotic detail, at Collabor88!

Oh! Sorry guys my mind is shot. Before I forget, [e] is having a HUGE SALE on their hair, (I’m wearing Soft in these photos) so run as fast as you can and stock up!

We’re Not in Kansas Anymore

When I was in my early 20′s, I was a singer in a local cover band. We fancied ourselves as the angsty messengers of our misunderstood generation and we gave it everything we had. Sure most of the time we played other people’s songs, but we did it with passion as if each and every word, note and riff came straight from our hearts. I still remember someone coming up to me after a set where I did a particularly snarly rendition of “You Ought-a Know,” of Alanis Morrisette fame, and asked me “how does someone so little and perky sing with such a strong, angry voice?” To me, the answer was simple, as soon as I stepped on to that stage, and felt the hot glare of the lights, I became someone else.

No longer was I that quiet young girl that wanted desperately to be accepted, with her innocent face and doe-like eyes. From the first count off, to the last round of applause… I became Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, possessed by the ghost of Courtney Love. And I loved it.

I’ll bet that ‘s probably the reason that I love SL so much. I get to step outside myself and slip into someone a little more creative. Mostly, I think it suits me.

Fly Me! Fly Me!

“Fly me!” I said. “Are you sure?” he said. “Yes, yes, doooo eeeet!” I cried with all of the impulsive nature of a child. All of my more endearing child-like tendancies got the best of me today, as Jake and I enjoyed the last few weekends of summer at the beach. “Fly me!” I said. So he did!

Fly-Me!-Final

Thank goodness he endures my many moods, and takes them all in stride. He also lets me play dress-up with him when I need a male model. He’s quite a catch don’t you think? So here’s a little “thank you” for being so wonderful. Thank you Jake, I <3 you!
