LOCATION: Bryn Oh’s Imogen & the Pigeons Sim

FASHION:

BOW/SASH: DRIFT L’Bow 2 Red

SHIRT: 22769 Homme Asymmetric Shirt white/black trim

PANTS: SHI Drape Bermudas

LEGGINGS: SHI Luca Meggings Black

COLLAR JEWELRY: SHi Lacet Motif Collar

BOOTS: Hoorenbeek Mullingar

I had these items in my inventory for a long time now and today I was inspired to do a modern day Samurai. A man who is very brave and honorable. A man who will stand up for what’s right and will fight for love.

I love unique items…they always catch my eye like these asymmetric shirt by 22769. It is simple but the way its created just pops. I combined it with another unique creation from SHI called Drape Bermudas. To add a bit of color and drama, the red sash/bow is from DRIFT. I love the whole new look. I hope it will inspire you to create your own hero/heroine.

GLORY OF LOVE by Peter Cetera

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWHOF_0-6Hg

Tonight it’s very clear, as we’re both standing here,
There’s so many things I want to say.
I will always love you, I will never leave you alone.

Sometimes I just forget, say things I might regret,
It breaks my heart to see you crying.
I don’t want to lose you, I could never make it alone.

I am a man who would fight for your honor,
I’ll be the hero you’re dreaming of.
We’ll live forever, knowing together that we did it all for the glory of love.

You keep me standing tall, you help me through it all,
I’m always strong when you’re beside me.
I have always needed you, I could never make it alone.

I am a man who would fight for your honor,
I’ll be the hero you’re dreaming of.
We’ll live forever,knowing together that we did it all for the glory of love.

Just like a knight in shining armor from a long time ago.
Just in time I will save the day,
take you to my castle far away.

I am a man who would fight for your honor,
I’ll be the hero you’re dreaming of.
We’ll live forever,knowing together  that we did it all for the glory of love.
We’ll live forever, knowing together that we did it all for the glory of love.

WE DID IT ALL FOR LOVE.

HAIR by DURA: DURA – Boy #41

Love this new release hair by DURA called DURA boy # 41. It is clean and loosely piled back but with a couple strands coming down in the front.  It looks almost windswept and carefree. It comes in many colors and a resize script. DURA hair has been one of my favorites for a long time because it is very well made and detail oriented.

SUIT by VERO MODERO: Rico Suit

This is the newest suit by Vero Modero called The Rico Suit. Thank you to Bouquet Babii for the honor. I love it because the patterns on the jacket are just fantastic. The creme colored jacket combined with the maroon colored pants makes a very striking combination which is perfect for VALENTINE’s DAY and other special occasions. It is MESH and I think it can be worn by ladies as well. I saw several ladies looking sharp in it in their blogs. <3

PS: There is also a new VERO MODERO suit named after Editorial Clarity and it is fabulous.

The Bayou

The sunset is dawning at the old bayou.
I’m here waiting for a love so true.
Beneath the branches of a willow tree,
I’m waiting for my true love to come to me.

The cicadas are chirping, loud and clear.
Singing clearly for everyone to hear.
The mangroves  sheltered our secret place,
Dragonflies buzzing in their lazy pace.

My lover came like a breath of fresh air.
My heart beating fast without care.
I ran into his warm sweet embrace
and he greets me with a million kisses on my face.

Later, we danced, under moonlight and gloss,
Our bodies ebullient, barefoot on moss.
And all through that summer, we met without fail,
Loving each other ‘neath the bayou’s sweet veil.

FASHION: Strip’d Fashion -Burkley Jacket-

The Burkley jacket is a brand new release for men from Strip’d Fashion. It is MESH and totally amazing because it comes with a HUD that lets you change the color of the jacket, shirt and tie into many different combinations to create the perfect look you want to achieve. It can be used for formal as well as casual, depending on the combination you want to create. Best of all, it is very affordable.

RUNNING INTO YOU: The world is full of millions of people from different countries with their own cultures and languages. It is just amazing to me how people meet especially in a Virtual World called Second Life. I met my partner in SL and RL here and he lives across the Atlantic Ocean from me. I probably would never have met him if it weren’t for Second Life. What is even more amazing is that we fell in love and will be living together this summer in real life.

Edi, running into you back in 2009 when we met for the very first time was a very special day I’ll never forget. I heard your voice on the stream and I messaged you (which I never do btw) and asked you..”Is that your voice on the stream? Sounds very sexy.” Ever since then, you were stalking me until I finally married you. ;p

The chance of meeting someone and falling in love is very rare, whether in SL or RL. It is really a miracle that LOVE HAPPENS even in a virtual game. When you find love, treasure it and fight for it cuz once you lose it, you might never get it back. Never let anyone devalue what you have. Love is never a game even in a Virtual World. We are human beings behind the avatars and we all have feelings. I wish you all love and happiness. May you find your special someone. <3

Our son Sachy asked us to model this latest release “Burkley” for a Vendor Ad for Strip’d Fashions. The idea behind it is Edi and I are two store front MANnequins on display in a posh high end store. I think it turned out very well. Thanks Sachy.

RicoRacer Flux: Killing Me Softly…

Killing Me Softly…

MODEL & PHOTOGRAPHER: RicoRacer Flux

FASHION: 

I’ve been wanting to do a fashion blog on this song by Roberta Flack “Killing Me Softly”. It is one of my favorite songs because it is tender and relatable. Have you ever heard a song that just speaks to you? Some songs are like that just like fashion. I wanted to create a look that is casual but chic and stylish….something a modern musician would wear. This COCO black leather jacket with the gold trim collar is perfect. It is simple with its clean lines yet elegant. I really love the Gold trim on the collar; other colors are also available like black or silver. The super sexy Tableau Vivant see-through shirt is a nice contrast to the clean lines of the jacket. I really love mixing and matching contrasting textures..makes it interesting. The stylish SWAT pants is also from Tableau Vivant. Check out the realistic folds along the length of the pant legs. Necklace is from one of my favorite jewelry store in SL: Rozoregalia. I might not be able to kill you softly with a song, but I hope I killed it in style. :)

MUSIC: Killing Me Softly With His Song

LYRICS:

Chorus:

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him
To listen for a while
And there he was this young boy
A stranger to my eyes

[Chorus]

I felt all flushed with fever
Embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters
And read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish
But he just kept right on

[Chorus]

He sang as if he knew me
In all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me
As if I wasn’t there
And he just kept on singing
Singing clear and strong

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song.

You think you got the best of me…
Think you had the last laugh?
Bet you think that everything good is gone.
Think you left me broken down..
Think that I’d come running back?
Baby you don’t know me, cause you’re dead wrong.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
Stand a little taller!
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone.
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter.
Footsteps even lighter!
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger…
Just Me, Myself and I!

FASHION: Okay, I’m in an EMO mood and what better way to express it than to dress up in an ultra chic black outfit from one of my favorite stores: Tableu Vivant. They recently released a lot of cool new mesh items and I’m hooked. I love the simplistic style, yet it is unique and breathtaking the way they play with the shape and textures of their designs. For example: This Cossak trousers are just amazing the way it balloons at the top and tapers it down to the legs; the fabric just flows. Paired the look with a corset from Cheerno, gloves from Vero Modero and boots from Hoorenbeek. Make up by Nuuno adds a nice finishing touch to my EMO ensemble. Afterall If you are gonna be sad, LOOK FABULOUS!!!

“Everybody Hurts”

When your day is long
And the night, the night is yours alone
When you’re sure you’ve had enough
Of this life, well hang onDon’t let yourself go
‘Cause everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimesSometimes everything is wrong
Now it’s time to sing along
When your day is night alone (Hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go (Hold on)
If you think you’ve had too much
Of this life, well hang on

Everybody hurts
Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts
Don’t throw your hand, oh no

Don’t throw your hand
If you feel like you’re alone
No, no, no, you are not alone

If you’re on your own in this life
The days and nights are long
When you think you’ve had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody cries
Everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes

So hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts
