When No One’s Watching

When my daughter was little, we had a silly little tradition of pushing the furniture aside in our living room and dancing around and singing with our favorite CD’s (Jewel, Alanis, sometimes even a little Backstreet Boys per my daughter’s request) until we were plum worn out! Those are some of the best memories I have, and I hold them close to my heart.

When No One Is Watching

Sometimes, when I have the whole condo to myself and no one is watching, I’ll relive those moments, spinning, shaking and twirling to the beat of my favorite songs. It’s a carefree feeling that just soothes the heart and soul.

When No One Is Watching

I think the world would be a much better place if we all did a little dancing when no one’s watching.

The outfit I’m wearing in today’s post carries over that whimsical, carefree feeling with it’s softly textured half sweater and flowing gypsy skirt. Both of these comfy Second Life fashions can be found at the Boho Culture Fair happening now through October 31.

Boho Culture Fair: Like a Daydream

With all of the chaos in my life over the last year 1/2, I have drifted away from my musical roots. Perhaps if I’d clung to them a little more tightly, the turmoil would have been less damaging. But… I digress. A friend and fellow blogger, Billy, has helped me rediscover my passion for music and naturally it is flowing over into my little creative space here.

When choosing the song to compliment this outfit, I couldn’t help but go for a more 60′s vibe with a modern twist. Kind of like the outfit itself. Mirror Enigma did a lovely job on the dress and boots, creating lovely textures and shading that compliment the mesh modeling perfectly. The Step-Inside skin is just sweet. I fell in love with it instantly and with a touch of S U G A R’s blush, it gave me the apple cheeked, glowing look I was going for.  The skin and the outfit are both available at the Boho Culture Fair going on right now. The adorable dog tags from Maxi Gossamer are available at the CINEMA event, also happening as we speak!

Now, for the music…

Like a Daydream ~ Ride

The way your hair hangs down it hides away your face,
For you it’s perfect, but it seems like such a waste.
And when I see you sliding past I make my plans,
And then my plans slip through my fingers just like sand.

I wish that life could be just like a photograph,
One moment captured as you laugh your perfect laugh.
But that’s a daydream, things could never be so right,
There’s so much more to think about than black and white.

Sit back, have a listen to some shoegazer tunes and dream with me a while, won’t you?

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!
