Disney Fantasies

Disney Fantasy

 

Disney Fantasy 2

I LOVE all things Disney. I really do. It makes my inner 12 year-old girl blissfully happy lol.

I especially love Ariel and The Little Mermaid is in my top 5 favorite Disney movies. Who isn’t a fan of the cute red-head mermaid with the gorgeous voice? (That, and Prince Eric is hot!)

And I’ve been jamming to Disney music all day, hence the inspiration for the post. I wanted to take Ariel and Eric, modernize them a bit, while still trying to channel their original looks. (Btw, Rathe is still mad at me for making him wear skinny jeans. LOL!) They ended up a bit darker in editing than I wanted but oh well. Note to check next time lol.

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

A Fresh RE-start

Once again I’m back…this time for real (I think) lol. While I had fully intended to be blogging regularly by mid-November last year, RL and SL stress caught up with me, so I took an unintended break from blogging and from SL. Looking back, I think I got too caught up and overwhelmed with all the events and other things I was invited to blog and didn’t know how to balance my blogging and my life. Between that and dealing with issues at my work and plain being sick, it was more than enough to drive me crazy. I am back now and making a few changes and try and simplify this a little. First off, I’m going to try and “schedule” blogging. Well, schedule probably isn’t the right word but the general idea I’m going for is that I’m making myself post at least once a week instead of doing 3 or 4 a day or even a week. Second, I’m not going to apply to any events or do a whole lot of blogger pack things right now, at least until I get my sea legs back under me, so-to-speak. Third, I’m giving Kaiden more blogging time. I want to diversify a little bit and with the way she dresses – a little bit edgier and funkier than I do – I think it’ll add some nice added interest. I love her style and I wish I had the balls to wear some of the stuff she does.

Enough rambling though and onto the clothes! Since I haven’t logged in pretty much since last fall, I had to catch up on all the new releases. Let’s just say I spent a pretty penny updating my wardrobe lol. (Therathe is so going to kill me when he finds out how much I spent! Eeps!) Here’s to a fresh re-start with a new hair, skin, clothes – even a tattoo! (I feel like such a wild woman!) At some point I’ll have to bust out my new feet and hands too lol.

The darling freckled skin – perfect for gingers, I might add – is currently a GG at Al Vulo! (It’s free to join if you’re not a member.) I went wild and added a tattoo from CoLLisions. I’m not normally big on tats in SL but I have a not-so-secret love for all things Asian and Oriental. Since that’s my heritage I just had to wear it.

Btw, it’s good to be back 🙂

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
