“Meet Me in the Afterglow”

I need to say, hey
It’s all me in my head
I’m the one who burned us down
But it’s not what I meant
Sorry that I hurt you

I don’t wanna do, I don’t wanna do this to you
I don’t wanna lose, I don’t wanna lose this with you
I need to say, hey
It’s all me, just don’t go
Meet me in the afterglow

Hollywood

JUMO Allana gave me Hollywood red carpet vibes. I went with classic black for this post; however, there are other colors and prints you can choose from. Head on down to Designer Showcase’s 10th year anniversary and try the demo!

Here We Go Again

We’re 4 days into 2021. I don’t have magic to report, but I can safely say the new year is what you make of it. Some things never change.

Designer Showcase is celebrating their 10th anniversary! Here’s my sneak peek…

Happy Birthday Me

It’s my RL birthday…so yeah.

I’ve been having a hard time adjusting
I had the shiniest wheels, now they’re rusting
I didn’t know if you’d care if I came back
I have a lot of regrets about that
Pulled the car off the road to the lookout

Could’ve followed my fears all the way down
And maybe I don’t quite know what to say
But I’m here in your doorway
I just wanted you to know
That this is me trying

Receipts and Reasons

I’m in Hell, or a version of Dante’s Inferno to be exact. Searching for locations is one of my most favorite and most relaxing pastimes. For my journey, I put on a new face from 7 Deadly s[K]ins called Nephlyn. There is something to be said for 7 Deadly s[K]ins and it’s all about the cheekbones. As a lover of angular facial features,  I applaud Izara Zuta’s work. You’ll find Nephlyn at Designer Showcase’s December round. 

Moondance Boutique also makes an appearance at Designer Showcase. Minnie is a customizable set thanks to its hud. Since I’m in a dark place, I went with onyx.
