Let's see what the night can do

I wanna get lost with you,
and hideout out under the light of the moon.
I wanna get lost with you,
and see what it's like,
to spend the whole night with you.
Just you.

I wanna get lost

Jason Mraz has a new album and I can't stop listening to it. It's all sweet and adorable and love is the answer (quite literally, in at least one case). Even the longing, angsty type songs are positive about it. Soooo when I'm a freakin' ray of sentimental sunshine 'till I run out of songs...well, now you know why.

I wanted to take some pictures but didn't know what to wear, so I decided to just wear shadows. Yeah, I suppose that's just my artsy way of saying nudes..but it's more than that. Because, for as covered up as I am by shadows, I might as well have clothes on. Quite often I show more skin when I'm fully dressed. Not that I'm rationalizing away being naked because there's nothing wrong with naked. I was just trying to do something more than gratuitous T&A. I also was letting the light do the editing and cropping for me. Pretty much all I did was make the picture completely black and white and then crop out all of the blank space. I dunno, it was something different to try. My favorite is here, and there are also two others on flickr.

Be Honest

I can hold space while you see
what your heart has to say about me.
There's no dotted line to sign away your freedom,
I'll acknowledge you for what you do to keep strong.
I'll always get behind you,
don't get me wrong.
I don't ask for much,
just be honest with me.

My love is unconditional, make no mistake

Another blog post from me - another Jason Mraz song that says things exactly right, another picture at La Vie. I'm turning into quite the broken record. But perfection like that can't be denied.

What's missing in the world is you

Well my life is a good life anyway,
what I have will do.
But when you're alone,
you're living in a world with only choices,
and what I choose is you.
So I'll leave it in your hands now,
to come through.

I'll leave it in your hands now

I went back to Memento mori today and got dramatic. This dress is just so gorgeous that I needed an equally gorgeous setting, and I am quite sure that Momento mori is the most amazing sim that I have ever been to.  I kind of wish I didn't mess with the windlight setting so much because the default there is just so lovely, but I'm still pleased with what I came up with.

Are you ready for it?

I see how this is gonna go,
touch me and you'll never be alone.
Island breeze and lights down low,
no one has to know.
In the middle of the night,
 in my dreams,
you should see the things we do, baby.

Baby, let the games begin

I've been wanting to use this hotel hallway set at Backdrop City for a while and I finally found the right look for it! My new outfit is from Monomania and it's soooo hot and lacy and fantastic. I love that the blouse is just sheer lace with long flowy sleeves that make it so elegant. I tried it with a pretty black bra underneath and that looks hot too, but it's even better without.  The skirt has a fabulous high waist and is overlaid with the same gorgeous lace. It comes in lots of different colors but there's just something so classic and sexy about black.

Watching the lights go down

Whatever you say it's alright,
whatever you do it's all good.
Whatever you say it's alright.
Silence is not the way,
we need to talk about it.
If heaven is on the way,
we'll wrap the world around it.

Watching the lights go down

I suppose I need to take my lyrics to heart today, but instead I'm typing things and then deleting them. I will say that I think that this might be the longest I've gone between blog posts here since I started blogging again, so I went to my favorite beach and played with windlight settings. And then slapped like five different layers of filters onto it. Whatever, it's not perfect but I like it.

Yes is the answer and you know that for sure

We've all been playing those mind games,
Some call it magic,
the search for the grail.
Love is the answer,
you know that for sure.
Love is a flower,
you've gotta let it,
you've gotta let it grow.

We're playing those mind games together

I love reading peoples' profiles in Second Life. They are often funny, sometimes educational, and usually entertaining. People come up with such great stuff to write and mine is so lame, I'll admit to a bit of profile envy from time to time...unless your profile is empty, that's the worst. Anything is better than nothing. Go write something so I've got something to read! Jeez. I also love it when people include their Flickr link. I'm totally the girl who checks out the Flickr streams of random people on the same sim with me and quite often follows them too. It kind of feels a little creepy sometime but I figure that if they put it out there than I'm gonna look.

Anyway, did I have a point in all this? Oh yeah, I was reading someone's profile the other day, I have no idea whose, and it said something about how any SL picture is better if there is someone wearing just underwear in it. I really can't remember the context or wording, but that was the gist. It made me laugh a little thinking of all the photos I see on Flickr. Then recently I was struggling with a picture and was told that it might be better if I was showing my underwear. Sooo, two random underwear commenters, this one's for you!

My lingerie is from a gacha so it's not necessarily the color I would have chosen, but I rather like it. The nude shade is nice. I was just happy to get panties and a bra that matched in three tries and called it quits immediately. I took the picture at the beautiful La Vie sim...because when I need to take a picture in my underwear, there's no place like La Vie.

We don't have to live this way

I can't take it any longer,
but my will is getting stronger,
and I think I know just what I have to do.

I'll be left here waiting with my heart on my sleeve

I really like this dress. I picked it up for Fifty Linden Friday last week. At first glance it's just a simple sheath dress but it's really lovely and well made. The wrinkles along the whole thing are fabulous (and truly they're better in-world, my editing didn't do them any favors), as is the little hint of side boob. 

Besides that, I guess I'm just doing what I do...hanging out and attempting to make pretty shadows.

Oh one last thing, lest anyone get the wrong idea from my song choice. It's just a song, okay? lol I don't relate to it in any way (truly I don't know how I could), except that I think it's really beautiful and I have always loved the passion and feeling in it. The video is stunning in it's simplicity. I hate even feeling like I even have to quantify it like that...but whatever, there it is.
