In The Blood (slightly NSFW)

Have you ever heard a song that spoke to you so instantly that before it was over you were singing along with it, even though you’d never heard it before? That was me with John Mayer’s In The Blood. This song is about how our dysfunctional family relationships can impact our romantic (and other) relationships. There are 3 verses, and while I relate to all three, it’s particularly the second one that really resonates with me, because it describes my own father so perfectly.

How much of my father am I destined to become?
Will I dim the lights inside me just to satisfy someone?
Will I let this woman kill me or do away with jealous love?
Will it wash out in the water or is it always in the blood?

Gathering Warmth

Sometimes when I create scenes for vendor ads for Repose, I wind up liking them enough that I want to blog them. This was one such case, and since I promised in yesterday’s post to show y’all a close up of the outfit I was wearing, this seemed like a great opportunity. I’m wearing a top and leggings from coldLogic’s newest release for their new brand Neve. I love these new releases because they include huds with different color options for each version of top, dress, bottom, etc. Plus, for things with layers, like this adorable top, there’s an option to change the color of the undershirt separately. I was going for a decidedly autumnal vibe with my pumpkin shade for the leggings and the green top. My alt is wearing FATEwear, which always compliments the colors of coldLogic’s releases perfectly!

Gathering Warmth

And I’d like to leave you with this.

Skin Fair Part II

I have some more from Skin Fair for you!

First, from PXL, is Aeryn. I am in love with this skin. I feel adorably sexy in this one. This skin has a lot of add-ons, including appliers for PXL’s own Sweet Lips mouth, moles and freckles on tattoo layers, cleavage on tattoo layers and a tintable eyebrow tattoo. I took this pic while sitting in the adorable Bluebird Cuddle Van that Consignment did for the current Collabor88. The entire set is a quirky and adorable take on a camping set, and I definitely love it!

Aeryn

Next, meet Sadie, one of La Petite Morte’s skins for Skin Fair. This one is young and innocent in appearance, and probably would be cute on a child or teen avie, too. I’m wearing another color of the Adored Moon eyes line that is also at Skin Fair. I am really loving these eyes, and this dark green is perfect for me since I currently have spring fever and it makes me think of dark green leaves! The lovely sim Blithe, with all its lush spring greenery, made a perfect backdrop for this vibrant new face.

Sweet Sadie

Finally, Essences has three new faces for Skin Fair. This is Storm, which I really liked. There is something almost impish about this face, which made it a perfect match for a post featuring items from the new Create Your Own Tarot event that opened last week. The first featured card for this event is The Fool, so all items have are themed to match. My hair is from Ayashi and the dress is Valentine E. Couture. I took this pic at the darkly beautiful, post-apocalyptic theme park sim Everwinter, which is new from the owner of Baja Norte. And again, I’m wearing Adored eyes, this time in a dazzling amethyst shade that seemed to suit to mood.

Friday's Fool

There’s just a week left for Skin Fair… so be sure you don’t miss it!

Hello 2015!

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m having a hard time with the whole “wow, it’s another new year already feeling!” But ready or not, 2015 is here! So I threw myself a party for the new year, complete with a buffet and a sparkly dress and some fabulous shoes and jewels and a gorgeous new skin from Glam Affair available at the new round of Uber. My 2015 sign is from Sway’s. It includes built in poses that are a lot of fun, but not very dress friendly, so I’m using a Ploom pose instead. Whether used as decor or to pose on, though, this is seriously cute. There is also an elegant silver and gold version available.

Hello 2015

My jewels are from Cae, and the pearl ring on my right hand is new for Fit For A Princess. It’s so delicate and pretty.

January Jewels

When the party was over, the poor puppy was utterly exhausted, and curled up in his bed by the fireplace… the mantle was still decorated for the season and I couldn’t resist snapping a pic.

Not a creature was stirring

Wishing you all a wonderful 2015!

~Lucie

The Childless Mother

I am the childless mother.
Dreams shattered, the pieces
lurk in dark corners
linger in shadows

I am the childless mother.
But not the only one
who weeps silent tears
from a seemingly endless well

I am the childless mother.
My day is not today,
when those who give life
are celebrated

I am the childless mother.
But never alone,
the sorrow cannot overtake
gifts given by those who love me

~Lucie Bluebird

Childless Mother

Dedicated to everyone who was there for me today… and to all who know my sorrow. But most of all, dedicated to the husband who loves me through every day, no matter what.
