TUNES

We weren’t born to follow
Come on and get up off your knees
When life is a bitter pill to swallow
You gotta hold on to what you believe
Believe that the sun will shine tomorrow
And that your saints and sinners bleed
We weren’t born to follow
You gotta stand up for what you believe

Take My Love, Take My Land
Take Me Where I Cannot Stand
I Don’t Care, I’m Still Free
You Can’t Take The Sky From Me
Take Me Out To The Black
Tell Them I Ain’t Comin’ Back
Burn The Land And Boil The Sea
You Can’t Take The Sky From Me
There’s No Place I Can Be
Since I Found Serenity
But You Can’t Take The Sky From Me…

“I am a siren, and for my adoration of mankind, have been caught in fishing nets one time too many. And in those fishing nets I have learned too many unfavorable things about human intentions and the lack of trust and goodwill; I’m not going to allow myself to be caught, anymore. Sirens do well at singing the sirens’ song and dragging vile people to their deaths, and for good reason!

Most faithful Friend

Made for SL20 // April 2022 // https://www.sl20.org/copy-of-march-2022

Finally I have holidays… Easter Holidays!

I really did desire them this time, as the times at school are really became more and more rough. Covid added it’s part and explaining or talking about the war in Europe to the kids didn’t make it easier either.

When I woke up this morning, it felt like someone took a huge rock off my shoulders. I woke up and with the feeling I just could stay in bed, the day felt so much more nice as it did the past few month. I sounds weird but it really felt like that.

With all my new freedom for the next 2 weeks, I would love to work on some ideas I had in mind over the past months – I hope I can do as much as possible, to get all my visions out of my head into pictures and styles. Todays picture, was made for the actual SL20 magazine and the theme was shoes. I made in total 4 pictures and certainly I had to wear some of my personal favorite shoes.

DRD is one of my favorite store for ages. I admire Jaimy’s texture skills and her incredible creativity. The details on all of her designs are stunning and every time I wear her things I discover more little things I didn’t see before. With the sticker Stompers she just right went into my heart. Those are shoes I wore myself for many years. Her love and eye for the details shows again with all those little stickers and the overall used look of the shoes.

But now… it is time for new visions and adventures in pictures and looks 😉

There is an answer to the darkest times…

Finally I am able to post something again. Life is really crazy and kinda turned upside down lately for various reasons. They will calm down again that I know, but it is very tiring and exhausting if life takes so much energy and power at once.

I like to say making pictures is holidays for my brain and it is relaxing. 99% of the time that is true as well, if you do not commit to picture assignments, not knowing that your real life hacks in so bad. But I was able to fulfill all those commitments and now I was able to do my own pictures again.

I am not very talkative at the moment and I hope you do not mind, I will be back with stories and short peeks into my life again soon, as soon as my real life gets more straight and calm again.

Today my styles are filled with a lot of AsteroidBox and Eclipse Art Studio designs. I love those designs and after all the stress I wanted to fool around with things I like out of my own comfort zone *winks* Certainly I have credited all designs below my second picture as always and if you need a location just click the bands names for a SURL to their main stores. If the items out at an event, you just need to click on the event behind the item and you will get your direct TP to that one.

I will get back to work and use the time for more pictures and ideas I have stuck in my mind for the past 2 weeks and hope I can realize a few more over the weekend…

See you soon

For you I become the Alien I am

TUNES

Squatting in your bodies, microscopic breeding
I sleep in you and eat from within
I am the Alien. We are here to help you
Make the mend in the chemical bend
We are the Aliens
I lack emotion, have no love that I can find
I want some devotion, to ease a worried mind
The heart is softened, soul is scorched
The mind erodes away some sentimental thought
The window cracks is closed
The door slams shut, the lights put out
Say no more, speak no less
For you I become the Alien I am
For you I become the Alien I am
The cry primal is muffled, the mouth seal’s tight
The eye looks within, say no more, speak no less
I the Alien
I am the Alien
Reject your human touch

Sometimes the quiet, soft Notes are beautiful, too…

There are those times when you just want to relax and let your mind just float, not thinking about something special or fancy. I was in such a mood yesterday when I put on the incredible “Morana Dress” from AsteroidBox, which you can find at the actual round of the Equal10 event. It does fit Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Petite, Belleza Freya, eBody Reborn, Legacy Female, Legacy Perky body sizes. To quote the designer: “Single packs include 18 options for the top part of the dress, plus 14 options for the leather harness and 5 metal options. Fatpack includes all color / pattern options and the top part and bottom part can be changed individually. Each purchase also includes Bakes-on-Mesh stockings, which come in black and white and in 3 designs – ripped, solid and just the panties/garter.”

Another amazing release comes from Exile at Collabor88 this month. The “Emma” hairstyle instantly gave me a very girly feeling. I loved the way how the bangs fell down my forehead lightly wild and the amazing smooth waves that surrounded my head. With the Master HUD you get 4 different style options with all the amazing colors we know from Exile hair on 2 page of the HUD. I tried to used 2 different style options for my 2 pictures, too.

The idea for the pictures resulted out of yesterday afternoon, when I was going through my old pictures and memories of past SL times. I really enjoy snapping pictures and work them a lot – it is like a therapy for me, if the day was stressful and exhausting. I hope you can enjoy my more quite, girly moments as much as I do sometimes 😉
