Part Of That World

I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see them dancin'
Walking around on those - what do you call 'em?
Oh - feet!

Flippin' your fins, you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumping, dancing
Strolling along down a - what's that word again?

Up where they walk, up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin' free - wish I could be
Part of that world

And I'm ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions and get some answers
What's a fire and why does it - what's the word?

When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love, love to explore that world up above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world....

I Got This Feeling On a Summer Day

Hey all! Just a quick LOTD with some awesomeness I've picked up around the grid. Olive has out a new gacha with adorable alien antennae headbands and the Atelier Kreslo Ice Cream Festival is going on until the 30th with fun ice cream cones created by various designers for sale so if you're looking for some cutesy accessories, check out both these places.

Also, check out this charming little outfit I picked up at The Dressing Room Fusion by Fishy Strawberry. It's a steal at under 150 lindens so hurry over and snap it up. The top comes in two different colors but I liked this one better because it went perfectly with these ballerina flats Sweet Leonard has out for free for the Seasons Palette Hunt. Although you can't see them clearly in my pics, these babies have a silver crown in them that screams out to the princess in you.

Lay Me Down On a Bed of Roses

A penny for my thoughts, oh no, I'll sell 'em for a dollar
They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
And maybe then you'll hear the words I been singing
Funny, when you're dead how people start listening

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

The ballad of a dove
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep 'em in your pocket
Save them for a time when you're really gonna need them, oh

The sharp knife of a short life
Well, I've had just enough time
So put on your best, boys
And I'll wear my pearls

Berry Blue

Hey all! Just a fast look with some goodies from various places around the grid. Sweet Leonard has out this gorgeous jeweled necklace and ring set. This set comes in four pretty colors including the Berry color I'm showing off. I decided to be colorful and pair it with Collabor88's House of Fox's silk romper and Wasabi Pills cutesy Claudette hair. Be sure to check out all of these finds!

I'm also showing off Al Vulo's newest skin release in Sunkissed. It's called Cecilia and it's available at Black Fair. Cecilia comes in 5 different makeups plus Al Vulo has been nice enough to place out another makeup as a free gift available exclusively at the event. If you're in the market for a new skin, check this baby out!

Finally, today's pics are taken at Isabelli Anatine's new Kitten's Heaven sim. If you remember, Isabelli won 2nd place in the SL Birthday contest and was awarded a homestead as a prize. She is going to open the homestead to the public real soon and as you can see from the pictures I've taken, it's absolutely adorable so be sure to keep your eye out for this opening.

What Happened That Night?

I didn't mean for this to happen. In my opinion, nothing in life is ever planned. It's just a series of events interconnected to one another, some more unfortunate than others. You see, it all started like this.......

The night was sultry and foggy with a heaviness to the air. It was the beginning of August and everyone was sad to see that summer would soon end. The prohibition was in full swing but that didn't stop the booze from flowing if you were clever enough to know where to get it from. My friends and I wanted one last hurrah before returning to the hustle and bustle of the city. We had been vacationing in the seaside town of Innsmouth and although it was picturesque and quaint, we longed for the bright lights and lively parties that we were used to. Through the grapevine, we heard of a speakeasy in the center of town and although, it wasn't much, we thought that it'd be something fun and different to do so we got ourselves gussied up and set out looking for a rousing good time.

When we got to the store that housed the saloon in its soundproofed basement, we slipped the cashier a few bills and followed his nod towards the back and slipped down a flight of stairs. The smell of smoke permeated the room but the soulful blare of the trumpets from the band hired for the night drew us in. Glancing around the room, I saw a few familiar faces including that of my ex, Joe. When we had dated, I heard it through the grapevine that he had been bootlegging cheap gin to various clubs around the city so with the convincing of my closest friend, Lizzie, I dropped him quicker than you can say moonshine. Beings that I hadn't ever really given him an excuse as to why I was suddenly unavailable, I was a little apprehensive after noticing he was here but I soon forgot as I lost myself in the ragtime tunes and got down to dancing.

A slower song came on and I stopped to catch my breath before exiting the dance floor but then I felt a tap on my shoulder and a smooth yet familiar voice asking me to dance.  I turned around and got lost in the green of his eyes. It was Joe of course and in a moment of weakness, I accepted. As we danced the Charleston, I couldn't help but wonder what he had been up to in the last few months. I also couldn't help but notice how I fit perfectly in his arms. It was like I belonged there. Another song came on but I really can't recall what it was. I was lost in the moment and forgetting every reason I kept myself away from this man. We couldn't be separated the rest of the night and as the club started to wind down, he took my hand and led me to a quiet corner. He brought his hand up to my face and brushed my hair ever so gently out of my face before leaning closely and smiling charmingly at me. I thought he was leaning in for a kiss so imagine my disappointment when he asked me to do him a favor and drive some "special packages" into the city for him. I sat back stunned and hissed at him that he couldn't be serious but he said he was. Would you believe I was so insulted that I stood up and slapped him right across the face? I mean the nerve of him! He grabbed for my wrist as I tried to walk away but I managed to move a little quicker than him and I hurried up the stairs wobbling on my mules from a combination of the drinks I had imbibed and my haste to get as far away from him as I possibly could. "Kat!", he called as he ran after me, his footsteps echoing behind mine. I saw my Studebaker just yards away and hurried behind the wheel driving off in a frenzy. I went to turn the corner and next thing I know Ka-Pow! I must have majorly misjudged that turn because the last thing I remember is the flash of lights in my eyes right before the sound of my car colliding with another.

When I came to, I was shocked to see that things had changed. The store that housed the speakeasy was boarded up and abandoned as was everything else in town. Also, from the looks of the place, the town was deserted and looked like it had been for many years. Needless to say, I was very scared by now and also slightly confused. I didn't know what to do or where to go so I just started walking. Hopefully I'll find some answers. Maybe you have them....

I Will Wait

Hey all! I've got some cute goodies I picked up from some events going on right now. Zenith has out these adorable lace detailed dresses at The Chapter Four that I paired up with this fun Peony umbrella I picked up over at Acid Lily by Le Poppycock. Both these items gave me the simple romantic feeling I was going for and went perfectly with some vintagey accessory releases that Sweet Leonard put out recently.

I've also got a closer look at one of the newer Filthy skins that was released about a week ago. Her name is Oceane and she comes in 6 pretty tons as well as lots of makeup options. I figured I'd show some of the tones with some of the makeups but the skin comes in its natural form and the makeups are all tattoo layers so feel free to mix and match as you like.


As you can see, there are lots of fantastic finds in this post so hurry and check them out. You won't be disappointed and now for some tunes!

Give Me Reasons To Believe You'd Do the Same For Me

Hey all! Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. Just haven't really been in the mood to blog due to personal reasons but then I saw these adorable stockings that Izzie's has out for her group gift this month and that House of Fox has released a bunch of goodies including this adorable collared dress I'm wearing so I figured now was as good a time as any to force myself to blog. If you're not a member of Izzie's VIP group, she puts out an awesome gift every month so it's well worth the 250 linden fee to join. The cat stockings that are this month's gift come with both the Slink appliers as well as a non Slink option so hurry over and get these cutesy numbers!

I'm also showing this gorgeous sunkissed skin with ruby red lips called Fujiko that Al Vulo has out at this round of The Dressing Room Fusion. This sultry skin comes with lots of add ons like eyes (not worn) and lashes for a low price so if you're on a budget and looking for a new skin, check her out. The only thing that could make her better in my opinion would be if Al Vulo released Slink hands and feet appliers!

Also, today I published my first blog post over at SL Blogger's Support. I'm so happy they allowed me to be a member of their team and I hope I can teach some of the newer bloggers some things I've picked up over the two and a half years I've been blogging. My first blog post there was a step by step guide on how to create your own windlight. I hope you'll check it out!
