Turn Off the Lights

Turn Off the Lights

Featuring Refuge, Lyrium and Narcisse

I am redoing a little skybox of mine and was going for a feminine, sexy, romantic feel.  I turned on some Teddy Pendergrass, whose music can always set the tone in the “sexy” department, and ended up with something I love.

Lots of good shopping going on in Second Life right now.  Keep on reading for all the details!  Happy Monday!

Featuring |T|L|C| Home Collection

Let’s talk Second Life inventory for a second, shall we?  I spent a long time sorting mine out when I first started blogging because I knew it would be essential to get and stay organized…and it has been.

However, when you have been a…hmmm..”collector” (because we aren’t hoarders, right?) as long as me, even though it may be sorted, we may not recall what it actually is.  For example, what is Le Chant Lie?  Well you will have to check my credits to find out.

I had a scene in mind that I wanted to use this new release from TLC with so I went to my “Outdoor Furnishings & Decor” folder and just started rezzing stuff.  I found some great things I had forgotten about simply because I didn’t recall the name of it.

In my old fashioned (or just old) brain I can totally imagine a women, nestled here, reading and drinking iced tea..waiting to meet her husband who is out working in the field.  Once he arrives, she will offer him a drink and they will begin the slow walk home..hand in hand.  Have a nice weekend everyone!

I Can Show You The World

I Can Show You the World

Featuring *SK*

I had so much fun with this photo and I’m not ashamed to admit I wore this outfit out and about the whole day.  It’s the new release, Deliah, from *SK* out now at Days of Yore.  For starters, it’s beautiful and secondly for some reason it just took me back to my childhood when I would spend hours playing Barbies…ok, childhood and beyond.

I recall having all my Barbie stuff spread across our big new porch the summer we moved and I was 13 then!  I loved dressing them for occasions that they usually never went to before changing outfits for the next occasion.  I think that is one of the reasons I love Second Life so much.  It truly is Barbies for grown ups.

I was also inspired by Jasmine from Disney’s Aladdin (hence the title) and am excited to see the live action version coming out soon. Last, but certainly not least, this Persian build I have had since 2012 and my hubby and I were “virtually” married in it way back then.  Who knew then we would marry in real life?  So yes, I loved so much about what this outfit inspired!  Thank you Bronte! 💕

All About Aries

All About Aries-For Blog

Featuring Gingerfish Poses, MICHAN and [meowhi]

The wait is almost over!  Zodiac Event opens TODAY at 12pm SLT!  This first round starts with the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries, but there are plenty of goodies for everyone.

While I am not an Aries, my hubby is so I know a bit about those Aries traits! Let’s see a few fun facts about Aries according to horoscope.com.

The 5 Top Reasons to Love Being an Aries 

  1.  You’re the most courageous and ambitious sign, the leader of every pack.
  2.  Your determination is unmatched when it comes to getting what you want.
  3.  You work hard but also play hard—you’re the life of every party!
  4.  You’re easygoing and enjoy the company of all kinds of people.
  5.  You’re impulsive. Sure, sometimes acting first and thinking later is risky, but more often than not, it leads to a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

What do you think?  Does that sound about right to all you Aries out there?  I am going to have to draw the line on their top love match for Aries though!! It’s Sagittarius and I am NOT a Sagittarius! *Laughs*  Horoscope.com can’t know everything, right?  Have fun and happy shopping at Zodiac Event!

Spring Has Sprung

Spring Has Sprung

Featuring [Krescendo] and Tuesdays

Spring comes early in the south and it still catches me by surprise even though I have lived here just over 6 years now.  My daffodils have bloomed, redbuds are blooming and trees are budding their little green leaves that will unfurl before we know it.

Spring is also a time for all the new babies like my ducks here…or like the 5 kittens I discovered IN the duct work of my house.  They are cute little things, Manx kittens, with little bobs for tails though clearing them out is going to be difficult.  The HVAC man was here today along with Animal Control who won’t do a thing to help except provide a cage once they are caught.  The property management company is going to send their “wildlife” guy out to set some live traps and I have a feeling this is going to take awhile.  Wish me luck!

True Colors

True Colors

Featuring Meva and Lyrium

You with the sad eyes
Don’t be discouraged
Oh I realize
It’s hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
Like a rainbow

A Breath of Fresh Air

A Breath of Fresh Air

Featuring {Old Barn Door}

The rain seems to be clearing out and today the sun is shining with more to come on Sunday and Monday.  I love the warm snaps of early spring when you can finally open some windows and let some fresh air in.

The roof and ceiling damage that I previously wrote about has all been repaired and I have slowly been getting things back where they belong.  It was nice to be able to open the window and let the spring air blow away the new paint smell.

Featured here is the upcoming new release from {Old Barn Door}.  It is the Farmhouse Living Set and will be available at the new round of Shiny Shabby which starts on the 20th.  Have a great weekend and Happy St. Patricks Day!  Have fun and be safe!

Vacation Daydreams

Vacation Daydreams

Featuring [Fetch]

Oh, how this photo shoot made me long for a tropical vacation.  In the past Disney World has always been my first choice for vacation but now that I am a bit *cough* older, I am finding the relaxation of a warm beach and a fruity, frozen drink more appealing.

My featured item here is the adorable Pineapple Clutch from [Fetch].  The detail work is just beautiful.  It does have a hold animation as well so you can stroll along the beach or just do some fun summer shopping and have someplace to store your keys and lipstick.

Now for the best part!!  The clutch is the VIP gift for March…completely free if you are a VIP member.  Not a member?  You can join for just 50L and that way you won’t miss any gifts, news or updates.

Now if that wasn’t enough, [Fetch] is also offering these cute sunglasses for only 50L as part of the Fifty Linden Friday deals.  They are a perfect addition to your summer look and include a hud with several color options.  Add the Pineapple Clutch and you have a super cute summer look!
