Courageous Woman

Courageous Woman

Featuring *SK*

“There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.”

Elizabeth Bennet – Pride and Prejudice

This picture is a perfect example of why I say I don’t want to limit myself to one style of blogging.  For me it is so much more satisfying when I can be inspired by something whether it is fashion or decor, modern or vintage.

I thought of the movie Pride and Prejudice immediately when I saw this dress by *SK*.  I love the movie and the main character, Elizabeth Bennet,  or perhaps I should say I love the personality given to the character by the book’s author, Jane Austen.  Elizabeth is courageous, playful, independent and intelligent….she just doesn’t put up with crap, you know?

The quote above is one of my favorites.  I have always felt that same way for as long as I can remember but didn’t realize how fortunate that really was until I was older.  Peer pressure has never been an issue for me at any point in my life and I realize how lucky I was to have escaped it.  I have never felt a need to fit in if that meant pretending and I have never been afraid to admit to my likes or dislikes about something, even if they put me in the minority.

These strengths begin to be formed in childhood and I realize not everyone is allowed to nurture these strengths.  My wish for all is that you have the same courage Elizabeth had and that it rises up when you need it most!

Mean Old Captain Hook

Mean Old Captain Hook

Featuring [Fetch] and Lyrium 

OK…my love of Disney is showing again, isn’t it?  I can’t help myself…I am really in need of a Disney World visit.  This didn’t start out as a Tinkerbell photo but when I changed the color of the dress to this green shade, Tinkerbell immediately came to mind…and the rest is history.

This cute little scalloped dress by [Fetch] is available at Soiree, the Collabor88 spinoff.  It comes in your choice of  9 colors or a fatpack is available as well.  The landmark for Soiree is in the credits.  Stop by and grab this playful dress in your favorite color…maybe yours is Tink green too!

Girl the way you flaunt it
Those hips flow like water
Dip it low, I’ll watch it
This love hits like rocket ships from outer space
I’m in the highest place with you
Baby I just wanna show off
Come on baby, take your clothes off
We can keep on bumpin’ and grindin’ and lovin’ so wildly
You know I wanna show off

Dreaming of Spring

dreaming of spring

Featuring Elle Boutique

I’m still amazed at how much sooner spring comes in the south when compared to the northern US.  On my walk to the mailbox today I was surprised to see the daffodils are coming up especially considering how chilly it feels today.  Daffodils and the color yellow always make me think of spring…beautiful, bright spring.  It won’t be long now before the weather takes a turn and the days become warmer.  Those springs thoughts are the inspiration behind my picture where I tried to capture the warmth of the sun and splash it across the landscape.  I can almost feel it…can you?

Featured here is the Felicity Palm Ring from Elle Boutique. It’s such a unique piece and a such nice change from rings and/or bracelets.  It comes with a hud and lets you choose from 6 metals and 14 stones. Super cute and available in the main store.

Fresh Powder

Fresh Powder

Featuring *Kate* Jewelry & Lyrium Poses

Ask around in the skiing community and I am sure you will hear varying definitions of the term “fresh powder” and its been MANY years since I was on a pair of skis, mostly because I just wasn’t that good at it and my desire to learn something that left me sore and freezing was pretty much nonexistent.

Fresh powder to me is waking up in the morning and finding everything has been blanketed in sparkling flakes.  The wind is still, the sun is shining and not man nor beast has disturbed a single flake.  This beauty can also be found on a snowy evening, when it’s the moon and not the sun, casting a glow over the glistening landscape.

It’s two days before Christmas and I am definitely missing the snow right now.  I am thankful for my little cabin in Second Life, decorated festively for the holiday, the ground covered in snow with gentle flakes falling and church bells ringing in the distance.  It’s  as close as I can get to the real thing this Christmas and I am enjoying the peace it brings.

It’s A Wrap!

Wrapping Up Christmas

Featuring Fashiowl Poses and *SK*

I have one small gift left to wrap and then I am officially done!  My husband has a five day weekend starting tomorrow and we are looking forward to our quiet Christmas together.  We celebrated a couple of weeks ago with my daughter and her husband, my sister and my niece, her husband and their new twin daughters.  I will certainly miss not seeing my brother, mother and father and will be sure to enjoy some phone conversation with each.  I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope Santa is good to you!

This super cute pose is by Fashiowl Poses and is one of four adorable sets they have at this round of Tres Chic.  This table, the decor on and under it, including the kitties, are part of the Wrapping set.  It has 7 build in poses and is great to just display as part of your room decor.

Also at Tres Chic is my fuzzy sweater by *SK*.  It is the Estrella sweater and is one of 3 mix and match pieces.  There is also a super sexy star top and a skirt to choose from.  Don’t forget about getting yourself a little gift and head to Tres Chic to pick something  out!
