Fit For A Queen

Fit For A Queen

Featuring [Krescendo] and Lyrium

Luxury as far as the eye can see.  This gorgeous new Monarchy Bed comes to us from [Krescendo] and is available at the current round of Cosmopolitan.  It has beautiful scroll work at the head and foot and includes a hud with texture change options for the bedding and pillows. Also seen here are the [Krescendo] Ferme de Bourdons chandeliers which matched perfectly. I added some draping to make it all cozy and romantic.

Thanks to Lyrium I have an extra plush star pillow which is included as a prop in the new main store release, the Bianca Series.  The Bianca Series consists of 5 poses and matching pillow props.

I’m ready for my nap now!  Happy weekend everyone and have a great one!

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!

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!
