Behind the door

Standard

What I’ve felt, what I’ve known
Sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there? ‘Cause I’m the one who waits for you
Or are you unforgiven, too?

Bride 1You will be here, I know that much. All the rest is noise, the flowers, the intricate bejeweled gown, the dazzling jewelry, the elaborated plans… it’s all beautiful, but nothing more than a pretty background. This is our story. Come beside me, and speak the words that make my demons run.

Bride 2

Come lay beside me, this won’t hurt, I swear
She loves me not, she loves me still, but she’ll never love again
She lay beside me but she’ll be there when I’m gone
Black heart scarring darker still, yes, she’ll be there when I’m gone

Dis-moi, Josephine

Standard
Dis-moi, Josephine

Blue skies smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies do I see
Bluebirds singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds all day long…

She’s all feathers and luscious pearls, the most exotic midnight glam. Behind her dazzling smile, a dangerous secret is hidden by a song. Her voice enchants everyone in the room, a true spell cast by her playful eyes. She dances all their fantasies away, swiping their careless confidences away, while they’re too entranced to know that they’re the enemy.

Josephine 2

Fabulous like no other, the Black Pearl plays a dangerous game. Today she fascinates the troops clad in her magnificent Miss Fisher Gown, designed by the amazing Silvan Moon Designs for the upcoming round of the Vintage Fair (June 8th to 25th). The fabric is super luxurious and the rigging feels incredibly authentic. It will be available in 6 colors.

Adored by a legion of admirers, the Creole goddess wears the glorious Charlotte pearls collection by Zuri Jewelry, with matching ring and bracelet. The Elite menu allows my to choose between several combinations of gems, metals, and pearls for a unique look.

Josephine 1

The music continues at the Twisted Summer RFL Sale, named Sockdolanger and themed after the Roaring 20’s. Nothing more fitting for the Black Venus than the fabulous Josephine Baker headpiece by Sweet Revolutions, and the Bento Satin Gloves by Maraschino (formerly Anachron). The event runs until June 30th.

The silence seems unnatural after the roaring energy of the party. Nothing but the swish of her garments and the subtle rustle of her magical pen, scratching stolen secrets between the lines of her music sheets.

Sleepy time gal
When all your dancin’ is through
Sleepy time gal
I’ll find a cottage for you…

I am half sick of shadows

Standard
She look’d down to Camelot. 
Out flew the web and floated wide; 
The mirror crack’d from side to side; 
‘The curse is come upon me,’ cried 
       The Lady of Shalott. 

Shalott 1 - mirror

A mirror shard barely misses the delicate dew of her Junia skin, one of the latest creations from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, found exclusively at The Secret Affair until May 5th. Her Spellbound jewelry set, one of the latest creations by Zuri Jewelry, reflects the million lights from the mirror. Her fate is chosen.

For ere she reach’d upon the tide 
The first house by the water-side, 
Singing in her song she died, 
       The Lady of Shalott.

Shalott 3

The waves play with the folds of this sumptuous gown named after her, Lady of Shalott, by Silvan Moon Designs. Fitted for mesh and standards bodies and in several colors, this beauty will be available in the Aetherea sim, at the Fantasy Faire (April 19th to 29th).

The wonderful Faire is just around the corner, and I’m eager to see what fantasies will bloom from the talented creators who participate. This will be my first time blogging for the Faire, and I can hardly wait to drink inspiration from the Fairelands.

Under tower and balcony, 
By garden wall and gallery, 
A pale, pale corpse she floated by, 
Deadcold, between the houses high, 
       Dead into tower’d Camelot.

Shalott 2

I don’t wanna feel blue

Standard

Bad girl, drunk by six
Kissing someone else’s lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I’m not happy when I act this way

Neon lights, smoke, and noise, all the human smells, fake smiles and more noise… perhaps that will muffle the whispers I don’t want to hear, the thoughts that roam my mind until I drown them away, until I dance them away, until I fuck them away.
Bad girl 2Let’s spin once again on my furiously high Trinity shoes, by Renegade. Their sinuous Gothic texture shines under the flickering lights as I fall. I laugh, I light another cigarette, and I keep dancing while the world swirls around me.

I close my eyes, I almost see myself. No sweat on my face, no make up, just the flawless natural beauty of my Katie skin, an exclusive creation  by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the Designer Showcase. I could not resist the sombre beauty of Zuri Jewelry‘s Only You Rose in this dark new edition, currently on sale as part of Zuri’s Steals & Deals.

Bad girl 1

Is it me or you that I’m afraid of
I tell myself I’ll show you what I’m made of
Can’t bring myself to let you go

A lonely habit

Standard
Feels so effortless to be a stranger
But feeling foreign is such a lonely habit
You can’t crop yourself out of the picture
Out-of-focus but still framed inside
Well, Berlin got blurry
And my heart started hurting for you

Odrerir

The ruthless wind of Berlin hurts my face as I walk through these familiar streets. I can’t seem to figure out my feelings for this town, ranging from believing firmly that I was forever destined to live here, to this persistent sense of expat detachment that sometimes invades me. Berlin is all I had ever dreamed of since before I ever knew it, even though the weather hates me with a passion, and the language laughs at my silly attempts to babble in it… Here I had never felt so happy, and so miserable at the same time. I had never been so wonderfully loved, and so dreadfully lonely at the same time.

It’s my true home.

In other words, I love you…

Standard
In other words, I love you…

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars…

Those were stressful days. We had a new home, our first home together, and all our days were consumed trying to find the perfect kitchen, the right curtains, the color of the walls. We were exhausted. But he was happy, oh, so happy. He hummed and sang “Fly me to the moon” over and over in the most romantic “ear worm” ever. The night we finally moved in, we dressed up and he played the song, in his favorite Sinatra version, and we danced together among all our cardboard boxes.

Valentine 2

I felt like a beautiful diva clad in a sumptuous gown, adorned with this gorgeous new Dahlia collection by Zuri Jewelry, while I turned and danced in his arms. A couple of years later, we held each other on our first wedding dance to this song, whispering the lyrics while our family and friends watched us with watery happy eyes.

Mushy reminiscing aside, I wanted to recreate this diva in love. I chose the lovely Lumi skin by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you will be able to find at the Designer Circle for a couple more days, with the complete body applier for moles and freckles (from the main store).

Valentine 1

I added the 7DS Juicy lipstick in the tone prune, and Izzie’s special Valentine’s make up. Now I’m ready to keep dancing in the arms of the man I love.

Zero, you are my love in real life, in Second Life, and in all my lives. Every twisted path in my life led me to you, and I love you always.

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

Every day is Valentine’s Day

Standard

My funny Valentine
Sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart…

There’s something about Chet Baker’s songs… they can drive to tears, or stir the most delicious sensuality. Or both. I can’t see you, but your scent feels close. A rustle of the rug, and I know where you are. I feel your eager touch on my new Tabitha skin by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you will be able to find at eBento starting in just two days (February 10th). Tabitha has the natural beauty of a woman next door with adorable dimples, and she is available in many skin tones. I’m wearing “cashew”, with the Clarity Lipsticks by 7DS, now at Ultra until February 10th (hurry!).

Herza

That cute little heart-shaped lip ring is Herza, by Drunken Brokkr. It’s new, it includes a texture HUD with several metal colors, and it’s on sale until Valentine’s Day. Drunken Brokkr is a new facial piercing line, created by my husband and me. He does most of the heavy lifting, of course. I’m very excited to join him in this new adventure. Here is your ride to Drunken Brokkr.

But don’t change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine, stay 
Each day is Valentine’s Day
