sunday's call.. the beach

Image
the first day of autumn, a relaxing sunday with windows and doors open, letting the air's breeze drift through the rooms.. lunch is calling.. fresh rolls with ham.. i love these days of sweet nothings, to do as we please, to be calm, to rest..

the beach has the same effect on me.. it is soothing to the soul.. calming to my thoughts as i breath in the salt of the sea.. i think it is time for me to visit again soon, to feel the sand under my feet, hear the waves, deafening out all other noises.. maybe next weekend, a drive to the coast will be on the agenda..

last day of summer...

Image
i can't believe it is the last day of summer already, two months already done for 2015.. the summer hasn't been too unbearable this year, i think less long stretches of heat, and nicer cooler changes with rain.. and my favourite season starts tomorrow.. i love autumn.. the crisp mornings and evenings.. the changing colours of leaves.. such a pretty time of the year..

lost in the labyrinth...

Image
i am feeling rather lost lately.. losing myself in my own mind.. trying to find my way through the maze of thoughts.. then talking to my sis about the offerings of today's 50L friday, we likened this dress to one worn by Sarah in one of our favourite movies, Labyrinth... so i decided that it was perfect for my mood tonight.. maybe i should just learn to enjoy the maze for a while as i make my way though this time... after all.. doesn't it lead to a King?

the maze was from a gacha prize ~ Casita - The Goblin Kings Game, it is mod, so i was able to enlarge it.

words..

Image
i am a lover of words, the power they have to evoke emotion, whether it be sadness, anger, happiness and bliss.. also the physical power they can have.. make your pulse race, tears fall, skin hum and so much more.. some people forget the effect the simplest of words can have.. so be careful of what you say.. what you promise.. the words you chose to share.. as someone out their hangs on every word you say.. and if you don't have one out there that does.. i am sure they are not far away..

waiting for the phone to ring..

Image
even when walking forward.. there is a still sense of waiting for something to happen.. there is only so much you can control yourself.. outside influences.. human nature and the ever unpredictable emotions.. at the moment i feel like i am taking steps but listening for the phone to ring..

.. a soak

Image
i made the decision early this week to join the local gym, being an ex gym junkie i suddenly felt the need to get back into shape and feel fit again.  so after a week of getting back into training, cycling every morning, and one weights session on thursday, today i am sore.. body is aching all over.  So i took some time to myself today, turned off laptop, put phone on charge and spent an hour in my spa bath letting the jets do their magic on my tired muscles.. while lying back, eyes closed, i thought i should do a bath pic in sl in my new little space.. i love this house from Scarlet Creative, current round of collabor88.. so easy to decorate and make spaces that i enjoy..

blue moon..

Image
the moon's glow
the night air
blanketing
warm naked flesh
the lapping water
instantly calms
analysing thoughts

deep breaths
serenity comes
to her being
she bathes in
the blues of the
summer night
finding herself... again

speckled light...

Image
when i was growing up, i always had my bed positioned under my window.  I loved the way the light shone through on an autumn day, casting shadows over me.. and my bedroom walls.. i would lay for hours at night just looking at the moon and stars through the large windows.. that i rarely covered in curtains..

my bedroom was my favourite place to be.. listening to music.. getting lost in books.. wishing upon the stars and dreaming beneath the moon.. the shadows.. the light.. every day and night the room looked different as my imagination took over.. speckled light dancing to it's own tune..

even as we move forward in life.. take on the challenges.. be responsible.. do what we need to do.. it is important to remember the moments... to stop.. watch the shadows.. dream on the moon and forever wish on the stars..

Valentina at Fameshed

Image
my last bit of shopping on the weekend took me to Fameshed, with one goal, and that was to pick up the outfit from Valentina E. Couture.  V.e is probably my favourite original mesh designer.  Always creative, sexy, original designs, with beautiful textures..

sitting in one of my newly decorated corners, i chose the kissing chair and love marquee light from Cheeky Pea and the Naptime Bookcase by Consignment.. adding a set of candles.. this finishes the little area perfectly..

[ . debauch . ] ~ blanket forts and hot cocoa

Image
this afternoon (my time) i went to the Valentines  (blanket forts and hot cocoa) event at [ . debauch . ]. debauch  is a great adult/kinky club owned by Red Pralou, always friendly, great music, which Red DJs the majority of the time for her events.

There wasn't many of us, but was fun to sit around, dance and chat in such a relaxed atmosphere.  Red decorates for her events perfectly, and tonight was no exception. Couches, tents, forts, lots of sweets and cocoa. 

I am sitting at the foot of the new corset chair by Stockholm & Lima, i love everything Surrealia  creates, and this chair is adorable, and is available at the new Leather and Lace round of the Liaison
Collaborative.

Purple on Valentines..

Image
Well it's Valentines Day, actually not long left of it here Down Under, and every year i always say it is just another day, and it is, but every year i have this little wish that sits behind of my logical thoughts for a Valentines message, something sweet and mushy, silly and romantic.. anything that just gives you a smile that warms your heart or other parts.. ~grins~ .. maybe one day...

This weekend there is sooo much red in SL, so I decided to do something that wasn't... and after checking out the 60L Weekend list i found this fantastic corset by -siss boom-, it also was available in golden colours, mesh, 7 sizes, maitreya friendly..

to fly.... words by me..

Image
with wings we are born
unseen to the eyes
but our souls long
they long to fly

with the world so busy
life weighs us down
people leaden those
wings that have needs

a need for the skies
an ache to be free
to feel the rays of the
moon or sun so bright

so release your soul
lighten your wings
spread them to the skies
and allow yourself
............................. to fly


~words by raven

“It’s easy to take off your clothes and have sex. People do it all the time. But opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… that is being naked.”

dreams..

Image
This was not the blog i was going to do tonight before i fell asleep.  But as i started to put together the one i had envisioned this happened instead.

I decided after stumbling through a few relationships on sl i needed to redo my sl house. To decorate it for me, rather trying to impress others.  So while at Collabor88 the other night i fell in love with the town house from Scarlet Creative.  It is rustic, relaxed, and a blank canvas to decorate anyway you please.  So my evening has been spent pulling apart one house to create another space for me..

Well it is almost my bed time, after 10.30pm here down under, and my pillow is calling for me as it is time to dream...i believe in dreams.. and love the places they take you.. and who can resist a teddy bear too!!

so time to give credits where credits are due...

talking to myself.. first post!

Image
It has been a long time since I have dedicated myself to a blog.  I used to blog a long time ago when Yahoo 360 existed, for those that don't know, 360 was a blogging platform hosted by yahoo.  I was part of a fun, great community, most of us having met on Literotica chat site.

When 360 closed its doors, myself and a friend, with help, decided to start our own blogging community.  It was a closed community of friends, and friends of friends, etc, we had over 200 members.  I blogged/wrote almost daily.  It was a bdsm/erotic community.  We had writers, kinky peeps, and lot's of fun!

I closed the doors on that site about 2 years ago and have since missed the community feeling of being involved in something like that.

Recently I have really been enjoying flickr, and all it has to offer.  The people, groups, sharing awards, comments and being motivated by amazing second life photographers.

So with the encouragement of my gorgeous sis, star, and one amazing friend, all…
