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!

So much cuteness…where do I start!  Let’s start with my three friends here..Snip, Snap and Jaws…lol.  They are included in the Corgi pose set by Fashiowl Poses and are available at the Harajuku event.  The set contains 7 poses and the corgi pups. Super cute!

My comfy t-shirt is by Aleutia and is at Fameshed X right now.  It’s part of the Yumi set that includes matching undies.  It comes in a variety of colors that you can purchase individually, in color packs or the fatpack. Each shirt includes a hud with 14 graphic options in both black and white print options. Lots of sexy, sassy sayings!

Last, but certainly not least, are the super cute pillows by Sway’s.  Winter is not over so you still need to stay cozy, PLUS the pillow is decorated with hearts which makes it perfect to keep out through Valentine’s Day….and now for the best part…it’s FREE.  That’s right!  It is Sway’s gift at GachaLand which only has a few more days before the round will change!  Hurry over to take a look at Sway’s Clyde Winter Home gacha set and pick up your free gift.

Midnight At The Oasis

Featuring *SK* and Lyrium Poses

*SK* has a great new dress and accessory at the current round of Fameshed X.  The Suzi dress has a perfect amount of sheerness with a subtle pattern and comes in 12 great color choices.  The Arnes shoulder piece is the perfect finishing touch to complete the look.  It also comes in 12 colors so you can mix and match your favorite color combinations.

My pose, by Lyrium, is available at the current round of Equal10 and is one of the poses in the Blogger Series Set 2.  I love that this pack includes all the options; animations, pose stand and pose hud.  This means you can use them in any situation.  The hud is great for taking photos in an area where you may not have rezzing rights.  The Blogger Series includes 7 poses and their mirrors.

Both events are open now!  See credits for landmarks.

Seaside Sunset

Featuring InsurreKtion

Loving this Shabby Mudroom set by InsurreKtion but as you can see I have moved it out of the mudroom and onto a seaside dock.  Sometimes you have to bring the indoors out and the outdoors in.  It looks like a perfect spot to watch the sunset alone or with friends.

The Shabby Mudroom gacha set is at the Lootbox gacha event which will be wrapping things up on the 17th.  You still have a few days to go take a peek and pick up some great items.

DayZ

dayz

Featuring [Krescendo]

My husband and I recently started playing DayZ.  For those not familiar with DayZ, here is the description from Steam:

The post-soviet country of Chernarus is struck by an unknown virus, turning the majority population into frenzied infected. Fighting over resources has bred a hostile mentality among survivors, driving what’s left of humanity to collapse. You are one of the few immune to the virus – how far will you go to survive?

I have a love/hate relationship with this game.  I love playing it but it scares the crap out of me at the same time.  We play on our own server so at least I don’t have to worry about other players trying to kill me…just the zombies.  I figure its good practice for when the real zombies show up! *wink wink*

[Krescendo] has created a nearly perfect mode of transport for the occasion.  The Apoxwagon is coming soon to the Eclipse event which starts on the 13th.  It comes in Adult and PG versions and includes a hud allowing you to choose from 7 colors.  Get yours and be ready to survive the infected!
