take your time

and I know your name because everybody in here knows your name
and you're not looking for anything right now
so I don't want to come on strong but don't get me wrong
your eyes are so intimidating and my heart is pounding
but it's just a conversation
no girl i'm not wasted
you don't know me and I don't know you but I want to

Spellbound just released this cute new hair style in her main store. It comes with a couple of different options on the headband and is just all over adorable.

I paired the hair with this jumper from Zenith that's going to be out tomorrow at midnight at Fameshed. She also has these really cute wedge platforms being released there as well!

.american oxygen.

oh say can you see
this is the American dream
young girl hustling on the other side of the ocean
you can be anything at all
in America, America
I say, can't see
just close your eyes and breathe
this is the new America
we are the new America

Well, it's that time again and The Arcade is rolling around. Say what you will, but gacha events draw in some of the biggest crowds as far as events go. Especially, this one!

The shopping guide is up on their website here. There's some pretty awesome previews. I'm looking forward to playing a lot of the machines.

I'm wearing some of the items there from Tentacio and Tableau Vivant in this picture. The kimono was a collaboration between Tentacio and Antielle. Kaorinette is a well-known presence on flickr but what you may not know is that she also owns the store Antielle. I love the appliers she makes and really look forward to what she comes up with for The Epiphany.

steady as a Tom Petty track

the way I want to kiss you is 
slow as the Mississippi
strong as a fifth of whiskey
steady as a Tom Petty track
I want to love you like that
deeper than a sunset sky
sweeter than muscadine wine
all night until the sun comes up
I want to love you like that

Here is a few main store releases for you and an upcoming peek at one of Ariskea's commons for The Arcade. I couldn't believe it was a common when I first opened it. It's gorgeous and really adds the finishing touch to a beach scene. 

Burley released three new hair styles in the mainstore that are definitely worth checking out. They're all short and pony tails. There's a really cute banged option as well.

Last but not least, The Sugar Garden released some adorable bathing suits in her main store. I'm wearing one of them in this picture. I loved all the colors. It was definitely hard to choose!

And if you haven't heard by now, Uber opened. Glam Affair has a gorgeous line of Summer skins being sold there. Really, what are you waiting for?

I don't want the whole world

lately i've been writing desperate love songs
I mostly sing them to the wall
you could be the center piece in my obsession
if you would notice me at all 
well I don't want the whole world
the sun, the moon and all their light
I just want to be the only girl you love all your life

Uber opened last night at midnight and it was full of some of the prettiest and most inspiring things I have seen on the grid in a long time! There is so much to choose from, full of rich bright colors, long flowing skirts and dresses, intricate jewelry and amazing home decoration. 

In all, I thought it was a very tasteful and well organized event. You can tell a lot of care went into making sure everything offered was appropriate and non-offensive.

I wont hold you down

when I first laid eyes on you
well the night just felt so odd
you looked at me and the stars lined up
I thought I had heard from god
loving you was like throwing a lasso around a tornado
I tried to hold on to you
took a ride on a tilt-a-whirl that sits on top of the world
man I thought I could show you
i've always been afraid of flying
but you can't blame a girl for trying
felt like a pearl when I was holding your hand
so precious I forgot
you could have any girl but I only wanted one man
and you were everything i'm not

I saw a picture on flickr and it really inspired me to take this. I've been in kind of a morbid mood lately and this coffin pose prop by Boudoir is so beautiful. So, here is something a bit different.

don't know where I went wrong

I don't think you're right for him
look at what it might have been if you took a bus to China Town
i'd be standing on Canal and Bowery and she'd be standing next to me

Glam Affair is participating in 50 Linden Friday this week and she has three skins out with Nyam Nyam appliers all for the one price. It's a huge deal, so go stop by and grab that!

I knew from the moment I saw this hair on M4ri1yn that I would have to have it. It's big and poofy and definitely my style. Probably one of my favorite hairs in sl right now. It's currently being sold at Shiny Shabby which opened on the 20th!

lost souls in revelry

run away with me
lost souls in revelry
running wild and running free
two kids, you and me
and I say
hey, hey hey hey
living like we're renegades

Today is the 20th and The Fantasy Collective has opened it's doors. There's a fresh new build down on the ground level of the sim with some pieces made by Artizan Mesh that are also currently being sold. There's a lot of really great items to pick from, so don't hesitate in stopping by.

her highs match her lows

if she was a drink she'd be a single barrel bourbon on ice
smooth with a kick, a chill and a burn all at the same time
she's a Sunday drive meets high-speed chase
she ain't just a song
she's the whole mixtape
she's so complicated
that's the way God made her
sunshine mixed with a little hurricane

The Fantasy Collective is getting ready to open it's doors in less than 24 hours. We open at noon slt on the 20th every month so mark your calenders! Some of your favorite most well-known brands are here along with some awesome little gems you may not have heard of yet.

you always really knew

I thought the world of you
I thought nothing could go wrong
but I was wrong
I was wrong
if you, if you could get by, trying not to lie
things wouldn't be so confused and I wouldn't feel so used
but you always really knew
I just wanna be with you

It's the middle of the month which means it's that unavoidable mid-month event grind time. So many events have opened-are opening-will open. The Fantasy Gacha Carnival is still going strong. But, this post is focusing on The Kawaii Project, Collabor88, The Secret Affair and IDK.

First of all, the skirt I am wearing is a collaboration by the brainchildren behind Noodles and Haste come to you in the form of a new brand called Oaken. (Adding a picture below since the top I am wearing covers up a bit of the skirt.) This skirt, a top and a beautiful dress can all be found at Collabor88 this month. There are four different HUD packs to choose from. Good luck with that. If you're like me, you'll want them all. It's too hard to choose between them.

touch of crazy

looks like royal in a thrift store dress
keeps my heart and her hair a mess
she goes where the wind suggests she goes
got a spirit that can't be tamed
she's a calico pony on an open plain
I know I'll never be the same no more
she's a wild child
got a rebel soul with a whole lot of gypsy wild style
she can't be tied down but for a while
I'll be falling free and so alive
might break my heart but God she drives me wild

if i've gone overboard
then i'm begging you to forgive me in my haste
when i'm holding you so, girl
close to me
oh and you come crash into me, baby
hike up your skirt a little more and show your world to me 

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival opened at midnight. There's still a few vendors that haven't set up yet but there's plenty there to start spamming your teleports now. Like this awesome set from Alchemy by Tyr and Nina is ready and available at the event right meow. There's a pretty awesome pet mount that can be won on their machine as well.
