There is a place I will always feel welcome, always be safe and always belong. It is a place that has no boundaries, no geographical restraints and no limits of time. It is open, warm and inviting. It is the place where I go when I am tired, cold and feeling alone.
Next to you.
It is where I long to be when you are away…a homesickness that is cured only when you return. Hands held, thighs touching, head upon shoulder, smile on lips. It is my favourite destination, my secret haven. It is mine, alone. It is wherever you are, whenever you are there.
Your place is here; not just on this bench, but in my heart. Until you return I will close my eyes and reside in my joy, my happiness, my contentment. I will savour each memory like a precious gift and sigh with the comfort of each remembrance.
Next to you.

If I had hair like this, I swear I would walk backwards all the time. While I don’t wear a lot of Truth hair, it’s not because the man lacks talent. This style, with the gorgeous French braid, the little flyaways around the face and neck gives it such a touch of realism I feel compelled to tuck them behind my ear. Flowers? Butterflies? That just hits my girly squeeee point right off the charts.
Teamed with an adorable romper and boots that look as good from behind as from the front, I’ll happily watch the world while the world watches me walk away.

In case you haven’t heard, Truth Hawks of Truth Hair has a new colour range for his hair, along with six new styles! There’s going to be a new build for his shop, and I guess the reason for the recent sale (which is ongoing until May 19th, for those of you haven’t managed to get there, by the way) was to make room for the new releases. In the meantime, you can check out the new styles and grab a full colour demo set (complete with all of the hairbases) on Marketplace. Here’s the link to the Truth store on Marketplace. If you sort by Newest First, it will take you straight to the latest styles.
Even bigger news is that Truth is running a photo contest – the Truth Model Search. To enter, you need to upload a (minimum) 2048 X 2048 photo to the Truth Model Search Flickr Group. Make sure you check the Flickr group page for a complete list of rules and the prizes. The prizes are awesome, and in addition to winning Truth gift cards, the first 10 winners will have their photos displayed in the Truth store. Now tell me, what Truth fan wouldn’t give their GHD hair straightener for that opportunity?
Well, I would. So here’s my entry. Oh…and I did it all in Photoshop!
This hairstyle is called Denee – Reds01 and it’s one of the new styles and shades. I’ll go ahead and list all of the credits here since I’ll be adding them to my Flickr entry.
