Sleepless, Dreamless

I’m feeling a bit like the princess from the Princess and the Pea lately. I’m tired and sleep comes but doesn’t stay and I’m very restless, which I’m not entirely sure why that is (unless someone stashed a pea under my mattress without my knowledge). I just moved recently in RL so maybe I just need more time to adjust to the new place?

Anyway, enough of my ramblings and onto the goodies! I call it the Princess Fair but this lovely new event of all things pretty and princess-y (which is right up my alley) is called Fit for a Princess, where this lovely gown and the tower I rezzed the bed prop in are from. Go check it out!Sleepless 1

I’m In Love With Being Queen

I'm In Love With Being Queen

 

Just a quickie post today. I’ve been feeling rather blah in RL so I decided dressing up and making my avi all fabulous would be a good mood lifter and it certianly helped. I love the jewel neckline on this drss and the pop of color it is! Btw, Orchid is Pantone’s color of 2014 so I’ll be looking for and blogging a lot of orchid things this year.

As a side note – sorry for the plain set-up – still trying to work on my photo taking skills and making photo sets/setting up rooms. I’m a horrible SL intereior decorator lol.

Summer’s End

Summer's End

My apologies for not being around the blog-o-sphere much this summer. It’s been a busy summer and go go go right from the start. Thank you Summer 2013 for being so extra fabulous in spite of the crazy rainy weather. There were lots of mini-trips to here and there. I got to enjoy time at the beach, relax with friends and family, and tons of time with my wonderful man Therathe. So here I am reflecting on another fabulous summer gone by and enjoying the beach with my bestie Kaiden. Now that summer’s over I’ll be back to blogging on a semi-regular basis. I wish you all a lovely start to your autumn season!

Blog the Beat: Don’t Stop Believin’

BtB-Dont Stop Believin

So much for getting caught up over the weekend lol. I completely forgot about Father’s Day so most of the weekend was occupied by such. I hope to get back to regular blogging soon, but for now, this challenge will suffice. Really a difficult one for me, I’m not sure why but yay for things coming together in the end.

Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’

Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world 
She took the midnight train goin’ anywhere 
Just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit 
He took the midnight train goin’ anywhere 

A singer in a smokey room 
A smell of wine and cheap perfume 
For a smile they can share the night 
It goes on and on and on and on 

(Chorus) 
Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard 
Their shadows searching in the night 
Streetlights people, living just to find emotion 
Hiding, somewhere in the night. 

Working hard to get my fill, 
Everybody wants a thrill 
Payin’ anything to roll the dice, 
Just one more time 
Some will win, some will lose 
Some were born to sing the blues 
Oh, the movie never ends 
It goes on and on and on and on 

(Chorus) 

Don’t stop believin’ 
Hold on to the feelin’ 
Streetlights people 

Don’t stop believin’ 
Hold on 
Streetlight people 

Don’t stop believin’ 
Hold on to the feelin’ 
Streetlights people

Blog the Beat: Poison & Wine

Poison and Wine

So I’m a tad behind on my Blog the Beat posts. I ran into some difficulty trying to figure out how to do #2. Not much to say on this except that I’m hoping to be caught up by weekend’s close. Happy Friday btw 🙂

You only know what I want you to
I know everything you don’t want me to
Oh your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
You think your dreams are the same as mine
Oh I don’t love you but I always will
Oh I don’t love you but I always will
Oh I don’t love you but I always will
I always willI wish you’d hold me when I turn my back
The less I give the more I get back
Oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don’t have a choice but I’d still choose you
Oh I don’t love you but I always will
I always will
