Looking Behind, Looking Forward

As I was visiting with my friend Mia today, we were talking about how we are not all that unhappy to see 2014 end, and look forward to the possibilities in 2015. So I asked my friend Bastion to help me out in bidding adieu to the year. As Mia and I agreed,  nothing says good riddance like salsa, so I chose one of my favorite Maná songs and a highly appropriate one for ushering out 2014. The whole album is fantastic, but Maná really excels when they arrange traditional songs like this one.

Bastion is sporting the new mesh body from the Mesh Project, and channeling Matt Bomer more than a little. Bastion is also a talented pose maker and made a wonderful one that aligned nicely with this theme, which I also include at the end of our farewell jig. So happy 2015, my friends, and may yours be the best year ever!

Probablemente estoy pidiendo demasiado
Se me olvidaba que ya habíamos terminado
Que nunca volverás, que nunca me quisiste
Se me olvidó otra vez
Que sólo yo te quise

Se me olvidó otra vez, Juan Gabriel, performed by Maná

    You guys look amazing!

Diamond Tears

Tears, idle tears, I know not what they mean,
Tears from the depth of some divine despair
Rise in the heart, and gather in the eyes,
In looking on the happy autumn-fields,
And thinking of the days that are no more.

-Tears, Idle Tears, Alfred Lord Tennyson

Maxi Gossamer’s delicate Diamond Tears necklace matches the ethereally fragile Flutter dress from Teefy at this month’s round of Collabor88.

I am also delighted to see different skin appliers being released for the Belleza mesh body. This one is called Patty from the talented Izzie Button.

Nevermore

The Secret Affair opens tomorrow and I can only rejoice at the beginning of the autumn season and the creep-fest that is to follow. Head over to get your fix of all things Edgar Allan Poe this round.

The Poor Soul chair from Fetch sets a perfect gloomy tone, accompanied by Paco Pooley’s gorgeous caged candles.

Physique

062514c

Siddean Munro’s new mesh body Physique changes all sorts of things. No more pointy calves, no more tearing of the avatar joints, and no more funky gap between the body and the upper arm. As always, Izzie Button is right on top of Slink releases with appliers for the mesh body. I have been surprised and pleased to find that I can wear some mesh clothes with the body with no issue. This will be something that will have to be tweaked as time goes on, but I am glad to know not ALL of my mesh clothes are now defunct.

My outfit today is from Teefyat Summerfest. Also at Summerfest is the sweet Hedgehog pal.

Past

January is my least favorite month, with February a close second. Today I celebrate being halfway through the least wonderful time of the year with Caelan Hancroft’s beautiful Into The Woods necklace and a recent release from Truth Hawks.

Newness

There are a lot of releases happening lately in conjunction with events and sometimes on their own. The beautiful Lucy skin is now available at Glam Affair, and this gorgeous hairstyle can be found at Truth Hair. Ikon Innovia has released his new Perspective line (at long last!) at this round of the Liaison Collaborative Boutique. Enjoy the loveliness!

Heading Home

I have been thinking over my life recently and have come to the conclusion that I have a pretty great one. Most of this revolves around my husband. My very favorite thing in life is going home to him at the end of each day, and knowing that once I get there everything will be good and right. Oh, we have stresses and tough times and disappointments just like everyone does, and I don’t think there is any life that doesn’t have some of that . And we both have our individual interests, pursuits and struggles. But even with all of that, I know he’s going to be there when I get home. My dog knows this too, and her conniption fit of ecstasy when I say “Let’s go home and see Papi!” makes it pretty clear she’s smitten, as well.

Twisted Color Challenge: Catch-up

It has been a crazy few weeks and I have fallen behind on my color challenge photos, so this morning  I had an extravaganza and got myself caught up.
