Sail Away.

Let me sail, let me sail,
let the orinoco flow,
Let me reach, let me beach
On the shores of Tripoli.
Let me sail, let me sail,
Let me crash upon your shore,
Let me reach, let me beach
Far beyond the Yellow Sea.

West Coat – Ria at Summerfest!

Down on the West Coast they got a sayin’
“If you’re not drinkin’ then you’re not playin’.”
But you’ve got the music, you’ve got the music in you, don’t you?

Down on the West Coast I get this feeling
like it all could happen that’s why I’m leaving
You for the moment, you for the moment, Boy Blue, yeah, you.

So this going to be a long post! I originally posted the top image on Saturday but then the weekend got crazy and now here I am!

So my barely one year old laptop decided to die on me due to the fans stopped working or wasn’t responding that my laptop overheated! I could of fried an egg on it! It still works but I have been advised not to use it. So now I am using my PC which needs some upgrading so I am able to actually use SL but I got some memory yesterday and seems to be resting but I miss my laptop already!

Summerfest’14 opened yesterday and I am telling you, if you haven’t been there already then you are severely missing out! There is a lot of amazing goodies out there and I went crazy on blogger preview day running and getting all the things! Even when I thought I had it all, I kept going back there to get more items! Elvi is officially poor now.

I did another wonderful collaboration with some of the girls and we had a lot of fun getting this all together, as well as trying to find our poses. I know this time last year I used to use some avatars in some of my scenes but I have actually missed doing it, I just do not miss waiting for things to stop refreshing all the time! Doesn’t the ladies look like hot mamas?!

Belleza has an exclusive version of Ria at Summerfest in four gorgeous makeups which comes along with some lip gloss tattoo layers, freckles, moles and SUNBURN! I am wearing it in the above image and how precious is it? I just love it so much! I am also wearing the lip gloss and freckles! They are seriously darling. The skin comes in 5 skin tones of fair, pale, medium, sunkissed and tan as well as four eyebrow colour options! Go try the demo at Summerfest! Above and below you can see the four beautiful makeups up for grabs!

Exile has released two gorgeous sets of hairs at Summerfest and I am wearing one of them which is called West Coast… I guess we both had the same idea with the name title but I am Lana Del Rey obsessed. The above hair colour is my new favourite from Exile, it is gorgeous. You will seriously love both hairstyles. I am telling you ladies, we have been spoilt at Summerfest!

Truth Hair came out with two new hairstyles not so long ago, and I know I am late on this but I am in love with honey which is in the above image. The two newly released hairs are called Hope and Honey and they are both gorgeous but Honey reminds me of my own hair when I tie it up!

How Far We’ve Come.

Waking up at the start of the end of the world,
But it’s feeling just like every other morning before,
Now I wonder what my life is going to mean if it’s gone,
The cars are moving like a half a mile an hour
And I started staring at the passengers who’re waving goodbye
Can you tell me what was ever really special about me all this time?

Happy Easter everyone!

I hope you are having an amazing Easter and eating lots of candy!

Two Weeks.

Save up all the days
A routine malaise
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay.

Hi Lovelies!

My poor site was down for a couple of days, due to my theme messing up! But it is all under control now and it means I can go back to posting again! Hooray!

I wanted to blog some items from Collabor88’s March round, again I know I am late on this! Tee*fy and came out with some adorable items, and I just felt so girly wearing the outfit and heels. is one of my favourite shoe stores on the grid and I just love the fact, I can wear my Slink feet with them which makes it way easier in having your skin on the feet matching your legs so perfectly.

As always, Tee*fy always makes super adorable clothing and I am just in love with this outfit, I couldn’t resist doing a picture with my teen self. Meet teen me, her name is Natasha! I made her a few months ago when I decided to go role-play at Mischief Managed but that didn’t last long because I got distracted but I still love to go role-play there now and again! So I decided to use her for some blog posts. I have forgotten how cute it is to be a teen in Second Life as Elvi used to be a teen and I never needed an excuse to wear the cutest things. Now I get to do it again and get away with it!

Feral Love.

Run from the light
Your eyes black like an animal
Deep in the water

I care for no one but the offspring of your mind
Run from the one who comes to find you
Wait for the night that comes to hide.

The Cosmetics Fair opened yesterday with the Winter edition for us ladies!

Glam Affair’s Mokatana has made an appearance at the event and I couldn’t resist using one of the skins and the mesh eyeliners which is also at the event! I know I stepped out of my zone of my images but I couldn’t resist finally using the hood from Fri.

The idea of this cropped into my head just as I was about to pass out and then I couldn’t sleep because I had to set up the shot!

Comes And Goes.

It comes and goes in waves, I
Am only led to wonder why
It comes in goes in waves, I
Am only led to wonder why
Why I, why I try

This is for the ones who stand
For the ones who try again
For the ones who need a hand
For the ones who think they can

It comes and goes in waves, I
Am only led to wonder why
It comes and goes in waves, I
Am only led to wonder why
Why I, why, why I fly.

Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you all had a good start to your New Years and you are sticking to your resolutions! So far I have been keeping to mine, I know that last year I had posted my resolutions. This time it is something that my diary will know only. Personal goals I think?

I was put on snooze for a while and I was struggling to wake from the holiday mode but it’s the first week of January (well second week I guess?) but I am back to work and back to blogging. I wasn’t really sure what to do for my first post of 2014. I still can’t believe it is already 2014.

So I did something simple and because really I need to change out of this outfit before it walks away from me! I tend to stick to outfits I know I am about to blog and refuse to change till I have blogged it. Weird I know but otherwise I will miss something I have worn and not add it in!

In other news, I am now on Tumblr, Twitter, Path and Pinterest! My To Do list that has been growing in size, I have been trying to shrink down, so add me to these sites!

Path – Elvira Hartley (I believe you will find me there via phone/tablet App).
Facebook Page.

I’ve been wanting to get myself fixed on those sites but forever delaying things! I am also on Plurk too so add me here.

Have a good night!
