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! 💕

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

Wipe Out

Wipe Out (blog shot)

Featuring Elle Boutique

Had I lived in California I am almost certain I would have been a surfer girl but I didn’t.  I am a Michigan girl who almost drowned in a pool at a very young age and who saw Jaws in the theater when I was just 10!  Those 2 facts alone make it pretty clear that my trips to the ocean, which I LOVE, don’t include surfing or going out much deeper than my waist!

I remember my first days in Second Life very well!  I loved it and while my other friends who lured me in were getting their “vampire” on, I was out surfing, hang gliding and jumping off platforms with a parachute….which I still love to do by the way!  My first Second Life house was on a beach also and honestly I don’t remember a time that I didn’t have beach property somewhere.  Even the times when my main home was on a parcel of grass, trees and flowers I searched out a small patch of beach to keep as a beachy getaway.  Too bad I can’t have that in my first life as well!

Featured here is the Lolita Belly Piercing from Elle Boutique.  So cute, with options to have angel wings, devil horns and tail or even both at once!  Aren’t we all a little of both?It is available at Whore Couture, open now thru March 31st.

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!

Barefoot In The Park

Barefoot In The Park

Featuring Faida , Fashiowl Poses & Bee Designs

Being barefoot is the best!  I can’t stand wearing shoes and am usually barefoot or in flip flops…even in the middle of winter here in the southern US.  This cute little pose set comes to us from Fashiowl Poses and is available at Redeux.  It’s called  Peaceful and includes the tree, circular bench and all of the decor items on bench except the doggie and me.  We are not included 😊!

Also available at Redeux is this super cute, girly top and skirt from Faida.  It just feels so feminine! The mix of tartan with the delicate striping inset with ruffle is adorable.

Setting off the feeling of spring are these beautifully details flowers from Bee Designs.  I have sunk them in the ground a bit for better camera position but they do have a small trunk in a shallow pot a bit like a topiary.  They can also be found at Redeux.  This is a great round of Redeux.  Don’t miss it!!

I Only Came For The Dancing

I Only Came For The Dancing

Featuring MONUMENT at Redeux

Most young adults can’t wait until their 21st birthday, making big plans to go and hit the bars.  Me and my other 3 best friends were a little different!  For us it was all about the dancing!

It started when a local bar designated Tuesday evenings as “teen night” and we went every Tuesday or every Tuesday one of our parents would drive us, dancing until the wee hours of 10 PM.  We spent a few months loving our Tuesday night dancing until we found out about a dance club that was JUST for teens and it was open Friday and Saturday nights.  This meant no more school night worries!  It was a little further from home so now we had to split the parental driving duties…one friends parents taking us and another picking us up.

This continued for about a year I guess until we got our drivers licences.  Then we just had to get permission to use the car.  I think the parents were actually happy since it meant no more one AM pickups for them.  And so this continued for YEARS!  All through 4 years of high school we spent either Friday or Saturday night there..sometimes both.  Throughout all that time we made great friends, dancing partners and even became friends with the owners.

Fast forward to the year we all started having our 18th birthdays.  Technically that was the cut off age and you weren’t supposed to be allowed in to the teen club and for a lot of our friends this was fine.  They found bars where you only had to be 18 to get it and started going there.  My friends and I tried a few but the crowd was obviously WAY different and we started having to deal with men that were WAY too old for us.  We wanted back into the teen club where the music was better than any bar and the dance floor was much bigger and because of our friendship with the owners they still allowed us in.  Was it breaking the rules..yes…but we weren’t there to prey on the new 13 and 14 year olds…we were only there for the dancing…and dance we did!

Cupid Who?

Cupid Who_

Featuring [Krescendo], [Aleutia] and Lyrium

No, she doesn’t wear a diaper or carry a bow but my hubby thinks she’s better than that version of cupid every day of the week! *winks*

Let’s start with this gorgeous chaise!  It’s the Queen’s Daybed by [Krescendo].  It comes in PG and Adult versions and also includes a hud with wood and fabric options.  It will be available  at the Sultry Event which starts on February 13th at 10 PM SLT.

Next up is this sexy little number from [Aleutia]. This set is the Audrey Lingerie and is available at Equal10. It comes in delicious colors and the top has options for silk or lace coverage.  I love the hardware on the panties! Perfect for Valentines Day and all year long!

Last but not least is my pose from Lyrium.  When I first started blogging and before I had any sponsors, I purchased the Lyrium Pose Collection and it has been worth every Linden.  If you are a new blogger and working to build a pose collection I highly recommend it.  It comes with several packs, Model, Pin Up and Portrait just to name a few.  What I love the most is the included hud that has all poses in it.  I just add it and scroll through to find exactly what I am looking for.  I love it and use it often.  Lyrium has luckily been a sponsor for a while now and though they weren’t when I purchased this set, I still happily feature it because of its versatility and ease of use….great poses for so many scenarios!
