Living a Fantasy

Living a Fantasy

I think most people have fantasies they think about, and long for, but know that a fantasy will never come to be! That’s what makes a fantasy so attractive, everything about our world is different, from the simple wish of living somewhere else to the idea of being a mermaid….or merman! There’s no rules in a fantasy, if I want to fantasize about being the Queen of Denmark, I can, or that I’ve brought peace to the world, or maybe I don’t live in a country that’s freezing cold in the winter and blazing hot in the summer! I can fantasize about all of that, and more, but I know none of it will happen! I don’t think many people share their fantasies freely, we keep them close, so no one knows what lurks within! I don’t have anything sinister in me, I fantasize about happy things. I may have fantasies, but my reality is what dreams are made of!

The Crossroads is at about the mid point in it’s run, and Raindale has a gorgeous gacha set there!! The Maplemoor Set is inspired by fantasy, but completely usable in non fantasy settings! I love the rustic hand made look of this set. It has nine commons and one rare to play for, but some of the commons have more than one item in it!! It’s a well put together set with loads of detail to make the look complete and the cake and teapot give temporary attachments to completely immerse yourself in the scene! It’s well worth having a look at it, all in one spot here, which is where I am for this picture! The Crossroads runs until January 28.

I really love this super short dress! I was a little hesitant about it’s length at first, but once I got used to it could appreciate the beauty of it! The soft fabric of the skirt feels light and airy and the upper is a nice combination of sexy and stylish! The Ijalu Dress is from Artizana and is available now at Designer Showcase! It’s fitted for Maitryea, Belleza, SLink, and TMP, plus comes in five standard sizes! Just don’t drop your purse! 🙂

The lovely Gaea hair is part of the January VIP group gift from Truth Hair! There’s a fee to join, but so well worth it with the regular group gifts given!

The BEGONIA Heels are from GLAMISTRY Heels!

As per usual, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo, with the Everly skin in sand tone from Sinful Curves Skins. I also have on the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.

I went through about a hundred poses from Le Poppycock to come to this one, which I took a liking to! It’s not that the other 99 weren’t perfect….it’s just that this one kind of jumped out at me! 🙂

The Circle of Life

The Circle of Life

Love and eggs are best when they are fresh.

~proverb~

Hi there………would you like some eggs? These are the freshest they could possibly be, since I’ve just gathered them! One of the many joys of living on a farm is fresh eggs. The hens work so hard to create these little orbs of magic. I’m not sure if anyone has put any thought into eggs…..but I have! I think an egg is a miracle of nature…and you might agree if you’ve taken that egg in your hand, placed it in an incubator, and after 21 days out comes a perfectly formed new life! A farm with animals revolves around the life cycle, there’s births and deaths every year, and I cherish each and every life that I’m blessed with to care for. The first time I watched an egg slowly open up and have a tiny chick emerge, I was mesmerized. And it was an amazing event every time another egg released it’s bundle of joy. I look forward to spring when I will take more of these bundles of life and nurture them to begin the life cycle again!

The January round of The Chapter Four has begun and Le Poppycock‘s offering this time around has made this pose possible! The Helping hand Arm Poses is perfect for the photographer or blogger. It’s an add on to any pose you have and will only move the arms and hands to hold something or show off your hands. The poses are unisex and can be mixed and matched with other poses in the set. A must have to add that extra kick to a pose and make the shot perfect! The hand Painted Bowl of Eggs is from a previous round of The Arcade from Surf Co. and I’ve added one of the arm poses to a pose from MARUKIN.

And speaking of events, the January round of Designer Showcase has begun and KiB Designs has the Layka Outfit out for your perusal. The top comes in packd of two, a floral and a solid, and there’s five colours to choose from. The skirt comes in five coordinated colours. There’s always the fatpack if you can’t decide, which is always my problem! They both are SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh body compatible.

This is the F049 hair from the blacks pack is from .:CHEVEUX:..

I’ve got the Alex mesh head from Logo wearing the Everly skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves on, and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the casual hands from SLink completing me!

I found the Sol Farm on the Story of Infinite sim and it’s a wonderful area to relax and enjoy the farm. There’s all kinds of livestock, a farmer’s market, and other stuff but, while taking pictures the weather got a bit nasty and a tornado went through…so watch out for that!

Long Nights

Long Nights

I’ve got this life
And the will to show
I will always be
Better than before

Long nights allow
Me to feel I’m falling
I am falling

The lights go out
Let me feel I’m falling
I am falling
safely to the ground

~Eddie Vedder~ from the film, ‘Into the Wild’

This movie is based on a book, of the same name, by Jon Krakauer. I’ve seen the movie only once and love the soundtrack, by Eddie Vedder. I do recommend the book though, maybe while listening to the soundtrack! ‘Into the Wild’ has stuck with me as a complete enigma, what possesses someone to give up everything in their life and live as a nomad, ultimately to end up in Alaska, living off the land! It’s a true story, which makes it all the more haunting. Why I quote lyrics from ‘Long Night’ isn’t really about this story, it’s more literal in my life right now! We’re almost to the shortest day of the year, and then things turn around, albeit slowly at first! Today the sun rose at 9:10 am and will set at 4:55 this afternoon. It makes for very short daylight hours. Luckily, or not, it’s cold here so the sun is shining and giving off it’s tepid winter warmth! But, it’s warm inside, I have a cup of coffee, and I’m in world lounging in…um very little! At least the boots keep my feet warm! 🙂

The December round of Designer Showcase is one of the many events going on and [Muse] has eight versions of the Latex Thigh High Boots! The pack is complete with fitted versions for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies, plus a fitmesh version for classic avatars! They’re all wonderfully seasonal, these have subtle Christmas trees on them, for a little bit of that festive feeling!

There’s still a few more days left in the December round of the Bodyfy Event. The Deep Sea Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t is a complete work of art! Really, the amount of detail in this is amazing! I suggest you get in close to have a good look! This and two other tattoos are exclusive to the Bodyfy Event from PMS!

The Vindicator bikini in black is from the Vindicator gacha set from lassitude & ennui. The bikini is SLink and Maitreya compatible and comes in seven colours!

The NO.OFFENCE hair by NO.Match is a unisex hair with two versions per gender. This is available at the current round of On9. Oh, and if you join the On9 group you can pick up the Christmas gifts put out by the designers! Just click on the star in each booth and you’ll have a whole raft of gifts to sort through!

My lovely meshiness is from the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Alex mesh head from Logo, with the Irina skin in pale tone from itGirls and the relaxed hands by SLink.

These poses are from the Loose Ends pose sets from Le Poppycock.

I’m at home for these pictures…..if you’re interested in knowing about the decorations you can check out my previous post here with all the details.
