Hygge

Hygge

“You don’t spell it, you feel it!

~Winnie-the-Pooh~ when asked how to spell a certain emotion.

I’ve heard through news stories that the Danish people are considered to be the happiest people in the world, which is a very broad statement to make! One of the main reasons for their happiness may come from ‘hygge’, don’t ask me how to pronounce it, I’m just not meant to make those kinds of sounds! ;P My Dad was born in Denmark, so believe me, I’ve tried to say lots of Danish words, but my Canadian accent gets in the way. Anyway, hygge is actually more difficult to describe than to say. Some describe it as the ‘art of creating intimacy’, ‘coziness of the soul’, or ‘taking pleasure in the presence of soothing things’. But no matter what you call it, there is a way to create this in your home or work place. You can find out more about hygge here, if it’s something you may be interested in. I’ve always liked to have nice surroundings in Second Life, and with the home I’m in now, it’s not hard. The beach house is right on the water, with a gorgeous view of the setting sun. There’s lots of windows to let the sun in and it’s a perfect size to decorate easily. I love warm colours, lots of wood, and candles are a must. When I’m at home, it’s like being warmly embraced and feeling true inner contentment. What more can a woman ask for?

So, I’ll begin with the Arden Teddy! This is an exclusive to the Fetish Fair from [QE] Designs and it’s just a little wisp of lace, really! It comes in four colours, all of the sexy kind, and it’s compatible with the Omega compatible mesh bodies, as well as the TMP mesh body. The Fetish Fair runs until February 17 so there’s quite a bit of time to find the something perfect for your significant other before Valentine’s Day.

The pose I’m using is from the Soft Caress set of poses from Image Essentials. The set contains five poses plus mirrors and is exclusive to the February round of Designer Showcase! This set is perfect for showing off nails or make up.

The lighting isn’t very good to get a good look at my eye shadow, but I will feature it in an upcoming post, again. This is from the Serenity Shadow pack from Veechi and is available at the February round of The Chapter Four. The set contains nine colours and is Catwa, Lelutka, Logo and classic avatar compatible.

The WAKANA hair is a recent release from Argrace. I love short hair!!

The Ribbon Collar in gold is from !nfinity.

I have a little bit of extra lighting from my LumiPro added.

My look all starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo, with the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins. I’m also using the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the Bento mesh hands from Vista.

The bed behind me is the Mid Century Bed from Dutchie Furniture and Homes.

The Garden Tree string lights is from tarte..
