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!

Come Back To Me

Come Back To Me

Featuring Elle Boutique and Lyrium

I like the mystery surrounding this picture.  Is she waving to that special someone who has just pulled up to the curb below to take her out for an evening on the town or is she wiping a tear and on her fourth glass of wine waiting for a phone call that isn’t coming?

Don’t let the title fool you though!  Being that I am a “glass is half full” kind of girl I am going to go with the first option.  I would never let a sexy dress, beautiful jewelry and fine wine go to waste by sitting on a balcony!

The beautiful necklace featured here is by Elle Boutique.  The Juliet Back Necklace includes a hud offering 8 metal options and 16 bead textures and can be found in the main store.

Rural Delivery

Rural Delivery

Featuring Sway’s

Let me just say how much fun I have had blogging these past 8 months!  So far I haven’t hit any roadblocks or lack of ideas and that is in part due to my sponsors.  I love when I get an idea instantly upon seeing items as I am unpacking them and the latest release from Sway’s did exactly that.

Featured here are items from the Mail For You gacha set that is available now at The Gacha Garden.  As soon as I saw the key photo I got my idea….it was that quick.

Up until I was about 10 we lived in the city, on a cute little city block where our mail was delivered to a cute little mailbox that hung right next to the front door.  Then we moved to the “boonies” which wasn’t really the boondocks but after living in the city it sure seemed like it.  It was certainly rural though.  People lived on acres, not lots and there were farms and horses and orchards…a complete change of scenery for sure. Where I had usually walked to school, I now had to take a bus and where we had been able to open the door and get the mail without even stepping off the porch, we now had to not only go outside but also cross the street to get to the mailbox.  It was totally normal to see clusters of mailboxes side by side.

That is still the place I think of as home, the place my mother still lives 40+ years later and I still smile now whenever I drive past little clusters of mailboxes.  Have a great weekend everyone!

I imagine this is Santa’s favorite spot come December 26th.  There is nothing quite like a winter soak in a hot tub. The Snowy Hot Tub by CHEZ MOI is available now at ULTRA Event.  It comes in PG and Adult versions. Also featured are gift items from TLC; the Polar Bear Cub is for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar and the Penguins Holding Hands is a gift coming soon to the Japonica Winter event.  See below for all credits and landmarks.

*Note: Japonica Winter event starts December 26th and currently has no active landmark.  I will update this post once it becomes available.

Christmas Candy

Christmas Candy

Featuring Meva

I find myself drawn once again to combining two unlikely styles and love the outcome.  The final look of mixing the tough leather jacket with vintage looking hair and jewelry are exactly what I was hoping for. The jacket is by Meva and will be available at the new round of Cosmopolitan. The jacket comes in your choice of three colors, each including a texture hud for the shirt and patches.  The jacket can also be worn without the shirt.  The texture of the leather is very well done.  It looks like your favorite, soft, broken-in jacket and as you can see you don’t have to ride a motorcycle to make it look great!
