Soft and Wet

Featuring Meva

(Hey, lover)
You’re just as soft as a lion tamed
You’re just as wet as the evening rain
(Hey, lover)
How will I take it when you call my name?
Your love is driving me
You’re driving me insane
Crazy, baby
Oh, girl
Crazy about your love

Dog Days Revisited

Dog Days Revisited

Featuring |T|L|C| Home Collection

Back in the fall I did a blog post featuring TLC that was a great, relaxing display with adorable beagles and now they have done it again, this time with Pointers.  Their latest release, Day at the Lake, is a promise of lazy summer days to come and I was so inspired by it.

I have always been a fan of TLC and feel lucky to be a blogger of their great creations and the longer I looked at this one I kept going back to my inventory and finding more of their items that were just perfect for the photo.  I really love the outcome of this one and wish this was how I was about to spend my day.  Who needs Calgon?  Second Life…take me away!!

Taking My Moment

Taking A Moment

Featuring PosEd Poses

The last few days around here have been crazy!  This past Friday morning at 6:30 AM,  our spare bedroom ceiling fell to the floor, the sheetrock soaked from the rain that has been going on for days.

A little background…my husbands job was moved out of state a few years back and he moved into an apartment and kept his house in Virginia.  After we met we then moved into a lovely rental home while he was still deciding what to do with his house back in Virginia.  There is a very large military, technology, and research presence where we live now, with contractors coming and going all the time.  Due to this most home rentals are handled through real estate companies who then deal with the actual home owner.  This works out well most of the time since the real estate company has their reputation on the line.

Fast forward to last week!  We had huge winds (no rain yet) that blew off several shingles.  I took pictures and contacted realtor.  They responded that the owner had contacted her insurance to make a claim.  Then the rain started…POURING rain and a couple days later…crash.  So now we have  a bigger problem, right?  It was explained to us by the realtor that because when I reported the missing shingles there was no actual leak that it was not an emergency and emergencies come first.  Understandable but what about that ounce of prevention I have heard about…or even common sense!

To make a long story short (too late, right), on Saturday, a roofer came and put up a too small tarp that still allowed leaking, a demolition guy came and cleaned up the mess AFTER helping my husband empty the entire room (I was just a week out from surgery that has me on a 6 week, 5 pound lifting limit), the rain continued all day and night Saturday resulting in more leaking and of course no work was done yesterday.  Though I was completely frustrated with the comedy of errors it had become, when Sunday arrived and I saw the sun for the first time in about a week I was able to just let it all go.  We are safe, the contents of the spare room are fine (though they are scattered throughout the house) and I don’t have to cough up any money for roof repairs.

So I put on my comfy clothes and did a little exploring in Second Life and found this nice relaxing spot at Soul2Soul Falls and took my moment!  Happy Monday everyone…let the construction begin!

Step Right Up Ladies & Gentlemen

Step Right Up Ladies & Gentlemen!

Featuring [InsurreKtion] and *SK*

Sometimes ideas just come together so well.  I have been wanting to blog this vintage carnival gacha set by [InsurreKtion] for a while now and was just getting caught up on current events.  Just as I was getting some open time, *SK* released this Valentina outfit for Tres Chic and it had this vintage, androgynous feel to it and I knew it would be perfect for this photo.  She totally looks the part of a carnival barker!

It also reminds me of one of my favorite seasons of American Horror Story.  I loved everthing about AHS – Freak Show but Twisty the Clown is NOT allowed at my carnival.  I will have to turn the lion loose on him if he shows up.  I highly recommend it and it is currently on Netflix and Amazon Prime.  Step right up and enjoy the show!

Biker Chic

Biker Chic

Featuring Meva and Fashiowl Poses

If there is such a thing as a glamorous biker chick this is my version.  It’s what I call biker chic.  No tattoos, a touch of leather, a little bling..ok..that helmet is a lot of bling, and a splash of sexy.  I know there are tons of tattoo lovers out there that will say tattoos should be a must but I’m just not a big fan.  I don’t have them in my first life (unless you want to count my radiation markers and those were hardly exciting) but I have worn them a handful of times in Second Life.  I have seen some beautiful ones as well but they just aren’t me.  If you like the idea of biker chic, check out the credits for details on my featured items.

P.S. I do have a pierced nose in my first life…see, I’m not a total prude! 😋

Summer In The Park

Summer in the Park.png

Featuring Sway’s

It’s raining here in the southern US with more to come over the next FOUR days!  I would say its a perfect time to be daydreaming about summer in the park!  Featured here is the Mayra Half Circular Bench by Sway’s.  I have shown it in all 4 color choices of the wood and also all 4 colors of the pillows and blanket.  Each bench will sit up to 3 avatars and it has single and couple animations.  You are welcome to stop and rest as you stroll through the park and I’m sure the squirrel would be happy if you could bring along some nuts!

The Mayra bench is available now at Whimsical. Whimsical is open until March 11th.  Stop by and get ready for spring with items that will last through summer and beyond!

I wish I could start every morning with this view.  I can almost feel the heat of the sun in this photo.  We can’t forgot about the perfect outfit to lounge around in either and this Betty set from Aleutia is perfect.  You get a super comfy tank and matching panties with lace detail.  It comes in a great selection of colors and is available at Romp.  Romp ends on the 23rd so be sure you don’t miss out!

Musicians Mayhem

Featuring [Krescendo], Space Oddities and Unrepentant

So much to blog and so little time!  That means a double post today but I wanted to make sure I got this blog out in time for you to make a trip to Redeux!

There are so many cute “clutter” pieces as I call them that are perfect for filling your blog photos or decorating your house!  I hear people actually do that! *laughs*  Bloggers are known for building a scene and then tearing it down to move on the next but I know we all find pieces we keep out longer in our building spaces or house if we have them.

Moving right along..I love the Light Up My Life light bulb by Unrepentant.  To me its a reminder to think of bright ideas for blogging and I love its retro feel.  Keeping with the theme of positive thoughts is the Good Vibes Shelf from Space Oddities.  The shelf includes 2 frames that you can add your own photos to (I used musical notes) and a plaque that says “No Bad Vibes”.  I think we can all use that reminder….who needs bad vibes!

Last but not least to tie my budding musicians loft together is the new release from [Krescendo].  The Amptitude amp is a great decor piece but is also has great animations in it.  If you run a club or know someone who does you need this piece.  It would blend in the club scene and offer some additional seating without taking up a bunch of space.  It comes in PG and Adult versions and is available at the Man Cave Event.
