Africa.

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.

Leila.

Layla, you’ve got me on my knees.
Layla, I’m begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won’t you ease my worried mind.

I tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down.
Like a fool, I fell in love with you,
Turned my whole world upside down.

Soon coming to the Arcade’s 1st Anniversary on September 1st, Belleza is coming out with a brand new line for the Arcade and she is called Leila! How beautiful is she?! There are three rares and 12 commons to collect! I can’t decide which one is my most favourite. I had a lot of fun changing hair colours and eyes for each skin! If I were you, I would get these babies in your collection of skins!

I am so excited for The Arcade. And everyday I keep seeing more and more items that I need to have in my life. One down several more to go!

Raise It Up.

The looking glass, so shiny and new
How quickly the glamor fades
I start spinning slipping out of time
Was that the wrong pill to take?

Raise it up
You made a deal and now
It seems you have to offer up
But will it ever be enough?

Raise it up
Raise it up
It’s not enough
Raise it up
Raise it up.

I recently redesigned my outdoor theater on my sim, and I couldn’t resist taking a picture there!

N-Core released a new line last week which are these beautiful sandals I am wearing which complimented my outfit very well! I was waiting patiently when the teaser was shown on Flickr!

I have discovered a new store called Frankie, and she has many adorable clothing items there and I picked the top I am wearing in different colours and need to make a trip back to pick up more items!

Berries Inc has recently come back and I was very excited to hear about it! I picked up these adorable little shorts from there and been over wearing them!

Redneck Woman.

Well, I ain’t never been Barbie doll type
No, I can’t swig that sweet champagne, I’d rather drink beer all night
In a tavern or in a honky tonk or on a four-wheel drive tailgate
I’ve got posters on my wall of Skynyrd, Kid and Strait

Some people look down on me, but I don’t give a rip
I’ll stand barefooted in my own front yard with a baby on my hip.

It’s Tuesday again and I didn’t want the weekend to end. So Atooly Hunts started last week which I had spoken about in my previous blog. I have some more goodies from there!

So going with this cute trailer from Cheeky Pea from The Garden. After putting this outfit together, I really I do not know what hit me to do a “redneck” picture. I guess being up late at night my brain had funny ideas and this had happened. Now after editing the picture and waiting on it for a few days, I wasn’t sure if I would still like the idea or not but low and behold I did!

Atooly came out with another adorable necklace for SL Fashion Week which I am wearing in the picture, it came out on the 16th and comes in different colours. If you haven’t picked up your own penguin necklace you should go do it now!

Part of the Atooly Hunt – Colors of Summer, elephante poses has these cute poses available for you to grab which is called “Fully Alive” and I happen to be using one of the poses from this collection! .:ColorMe:. and .::Vivid::. came out with some cute items for the Colours of the Summer Hunt with these adorable shorts and cute bikini top!

When I Am Gone.

I got my ticket for the long way ‘round
Two bottle ‘a whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
And I’m leaving tomorrow, wha-do-ya say?

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me everywhere, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.

So today is a mixture of emotions. Today is my birthday, and even though I do not like celebrating my birthday but this year I have been surrounded by so much love and care that for the first time in a very long time I was able to enjoy my birthday. My heart has been torn up today, someone that I got to know a little bit and see what an amazing person that she is has sadly left our lives to go to another one. Millie Gears was the most funniest person on plurk, in person she was a beauty to be near and get to speak to. I remember on Friendship night when we were all passing around friendship bracelets we had a chat in IM where she always knew how to make someone smile “Millie: don’t be a stranger kay?” with that line a friendship had begun. I wasn’t close to her like a lot of people were, but my heart is going out to everyone she touched in so many ways, her close friends and her family. Her sudden death has come as a huge shock to us all, she was very much loved and will never be forgotten. Every year when I celebrate my birthday, I will be blowing out a candle for you.

Today’s blog was meant to be blogged Saturday but then my family decided to surprise me with a party. It was an amazing party, and it made me smile so big to have all those I love and care for near me including my two surprises! Thank you everyone! My Birthday is something that since a very young age, I never had a good birthday it had gotten to the point where I felt my birthday was a curse which is why I never celebrated it, my best friend when I was 10 years old died in a car crash on the early hours of my birthday she was coming home from a trip to Johannesburg to come home in time for my birthday party. She was a beautiful human being, and she has never been forgotten about, 19 years later and she is still very fresh in my mind. The song for this blog was purely coincidental but I think it is very fitting right now. 

In the fashion world, Beetlebones has come out with new items back in July and I could not resist picking up the beautiful Calypso dress. It comes in different colours as well as a Lace Flexi add-on! She has other cute summery items out at her store, I suggest going to look at it all! For Fifty Linden Friday, I had picked up new poses from !bang and they were just perfect for this scene.

Resolutions

“Into the night we shine, lighting the way we glide by, catch me if I get too high, when I come down, I’ll be coming home next year…”

BlogResolutionsOfficial

 

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! I hope it has been a great start for everyone so far! For me, I stayed in for the night and waited up for FaMESHed which is always a good thing if you ask me! There is lot’s of new goodies at FaMESHed, I think I bought everything there but this dress that I am wearing is from Cracked Mirror and I am really in love with this dress, and made perfect for my blog! I have worn it for two days now and have it in a few other colours! If you haven’t been to FaMESHed yet I suggest you get your pixel booty there pronto!

I have made some SL resolutions that I hope I will keep or at least try, some I can’t say what they are because it’s a secret :P!

1. To stop thinking I suck at things, this seems to be a big thing for me. When it comes to editing pictures or sometimes even taking pictures I feel like deleting the shots most of the time because sometimes, okay not sometimes, most of the time I feel that they suck. Even though my friends and loved ones will tell me “No Elvi, they don’t suck…” I still don’t believe them. So I need to stop putting myself down in that aspect.

2. To not shy away when it comes to accomplishments that I have achieved or fail to make in my time in Second Life, and pick myself up and try again till I get it right.

3. To tell people who I adore that I adore them and remind them everyday they are important to me.

4. Be positive. As my kid keeps reminding me, I need to stay positive about things, and I will stick to that.

5. Never let those I love or care for slip away from me. Too many losses.

6. Let 2013 be the most amazing year ever.

I have a few others but that is for me to know only :P!

Oh the cat photobombed my picture, I had other copies of this photo without the cat but it’s cute.

I went to go see the new season theme at Emm, and I love the design that they have done at the sim… past the gate I found this pretty spot to go and take my picture at and I loved how the trees gave it a magical look to the picture. As you all know, I love shopping and I have gone crazy with shopping in the last two weeks. I have a lot of outfits that I want to share with you all hence why I am working on a lot of pictures haha!

Locked Out of Heaven!

BlogLockedOutofHeaven

Hii! My friend took me to view some sky boxes the other day and I was inspired to use these stairs as a picture, fitting for what I needed them for really. I have switched over to more winter type clothing adding my taste into things, after searching marketplace long and hard, I had finally found the dress I was looking for. It’s fits your body like a glove, and shows off your curves very well. I think I bought this dress in three other colours.

I have explored more with photo’s this week, and I have had a lot of frustration moments along with fun times but I am sure that is all part of the course, it has been an exciting week and I am glad it is the weekend finally! I have worked on my Christmas home in Second Life, I am proud of the outcome so far!

I have a few ideas for blogs that will be coming out shortly, I actually have three other blogs in the process just need to finish off the material. I am dying to get this sky box, it is from NOTsoBAD and you can buy an add on Lobby to create an apartment complex, so you can be near your friends, family or whichever use you want to do it.

Tomorrow is December 1st and that means the countdown begins for Christmas! <3

I Didn’t Mean It.

Following my angst/rebel phase, the looks keep coming out of me, and to be honest, I am actually enjoying not being so girly or preppy. I guess that’s what happens when a teenager is no longer in school. But it does make for a refreshing look. I am enjoying flirting with the pieces I put together. The picture above; I actually discovered this very cool looking sim, and just had to do a shoot at it, and show you all. I am sure many have discovered it before me, but it’s simply beautiful. I really love the layout, it suited my outfit perfectly!

Yesterday was the first time I managed to go to the Cinema event that started last week. But since I have been back from my vacation, I haven’t had the time to catch up on everything! I managed to grab quite a lot of things from there yesterday, but I know I will be going back soon to grab some more! Hopefully I won’t forget that I have bought it, leave it in my inventory to collect dust like I normally do, then when I organize my inventory, I facepalm over it. I do that a lot!

I have actually been going with some family and friends to a role play sim, enjoyed the times that we have been there. We tried to order drinks once, and nearly got away with it until a cop decided to ruin our fun. It was sad times! All we wanted was one drink! My goodness!

I will be doing a blog post about a place we have been attempting to role-play at. I hope everyone will have a good laugh at our shenanigans!

I did have three other songs stuck in my head when I was doing these pictures but this one cropped up in my head as I began to write this post, and it suited this blog more than the others did! I know I am beating my one a week post but inspiration is hitting me a lot this week and I am loving it. For now <3!
