I Wish I Could……

There are a few things in life that I really wish I could do! I know everyone has skills and talents that are unique to each person, that’s part of what makes a person who they are, and I do have some! I know I’m a pretty good baker, at least no one gets sick from eating what I bake, haven’t yet anyway! I will admit to being able to grow things! And no I don’t mean hair! Every spring I get the greenhouse going with all the seedlings I start for the coming growing season. I had less plants than usual this year, but there have been a few times that the greenhouse is just exploding with all kinds of greenery! I used to be able to drive a truck with 18 gears, effortlessly, and maneuver the behemoth wherever I needed to! I enjoyed my years driving the big trucks, I still miss it but I miss the actual driving more than the lifestyle that goes with it! I probably have a few more, I think we all have things we do well that we don’t think is a skill, we take it for granted and assume that anybody could do these things, but not everyone can conquer certain things. I wish I could play a musical instrument. I don’t care which one, I’ve tried a few in my younger years and could never get past the stage of people yelling, ‘Oh my Gawd, make it stop!’. I wish I could dance! In Second Life I’m a really good dancer, and I enjoy doing it, but in real life my answer to an invitation to dance is usually the line from ‘Willard’ in ‘Footloose’! “I drink better than I dance!”. That’s not to say I haven’t danced, I have but I think I look a lot like C3PO from Star Wars busting a move! I’ve always wanted to be able to draw and paint. My Mum used to paint in acrylics and do pen and ink drawings, and she was so good! Her prairie landscapes were incredible, but it’s been many years since she’s picked up a paint brush. I don’t have an artistic bone in my body. I’ve tried, but I just don’t have what it takes. I look at very artistic and creative people and they have hands that prove their artistry. The long slender fingers that move with little effort to create their art form. Me? I have stiff hands and fingers that holds a pencil or pen in a death grip and I work hard to sign my name so it doesn’t look like I’m in Grade 2! I’m happy with my abilities and I like to think that I could do anything if I try hard enough, but I do know that doing something and doing it well are two different things!

I’ve always been a big fan of colours from nature like greens, browns, and golds, but I seem to have taken a liking to pinks, lately! Stories&Co. by Flowey has released the ‘Ginny’ Dress and this pink gingham jumped out at me and I couldn’t resist it! This strapless dress is form fitting showing off nice curves and lots of leg! I really like how the bodice is quite high to fully cover ‘my girls’ so I have no worries about slipping out of it while moving around! The ‘Ginny’Dress comes in fifteen colours and is fitted for the Belleza, SLink and Maitreya mesh bodies. It’s available now at the June round of Collabor88!

The June round of HairOlogy is on and the gorgeous ‘Franceska’ hair from Analog Dog is a must have! The gentle curls and generous bangs frame the face beautifully and the high ponytail adds a bit of lightheartedness! It’s 50% off for the duration of the event so it’s a real steal!! This is from the blacks pack.

The ‘Ribbon Choker’ is one of my favourites from !nfinity! This is the gold tone and it’s HUD driven with seven ribbon colours and it’s scripted for resize! I love the infinity symbol!

The ‘Lilla’ glasses in gold are from ‘Air‘! The detailing is incredible and they’re a complete work of art!!

If you look down at my hand you’ll see a little daisy! This is from the ‘Daisy and Fly’ ring set from Meva! It’s a group gift right now and nothing says summer like a daisy! Well, flies do too, but not in the same way! 😀 Like all creations from Mea Carnell of Meva, the ‘devil is in the details’! The rings come in gold and silver, are fitted for the Maitreya bento hands, and can be worn independently!

My eyes are the ‘Steampunk Eyes’,black Omega applier from .Arise..

As always, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins(which will be renamed ‘Avada’ shortly). The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Daisy’ female pose set from Diesel Works.

I’m at Aloha Beach for this shot! It’s a pretty view from the boardwalk, here!

Beach Baby

Beach baby, Beach Baby give me your hand
Give me somethin’ that I can remember
Just like before we can walk by the shore in the moonlight
Beach baby, Beach baby there on the sand
From July ’till the end of September
Surfin’ was fun, we’d be out in the sun every day

~The Beach Boys~

Does anyone have memories of a summer of fun and romance on the beach? I’m a prairie girl from Canada so it’s a little hard for me to relate to the sun, sand, and surf! I do have memories of walking out on the sand bars in the river! I’d roll up my pant legs and wade into the water, feeling the cool water swirl around my legs as the current flowed downstream. I remember enjoying the sun and a warm breeze blowing my hair back. I think those memories of the time spent at the river are my best memories of when I was young. Those times were about the only ones that I wasn’t worried or stressed. I’ve always enjoyed the simple things in life, I don’t need big excitement and constant activity to enjoy myself. A walk on the river bank would probably do my soul good right now!

It’s a horribly windy Saturday afternoon in my world, so after working out all morning I’m taking this time to stay out of the wind and heat and enjoy some quiet Second Life time. In today’s picture I’m sporting the Leilani Bikini from [QE] Designs. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, TMP, and Tonic mesh bodies and comes in fifteen designs, plus there’s a nice bonus when you get the fatpack of an additional five great prints! It’s available now at the Tropical Summer 2017 event. There you’ll find everything you need to make great memories!

Also at the Tropical Summer event is the Isla Choker from Supernatural! It’s a cute little shell on a strap and it’s HUD driven with eleven colours for the strap and six metals to choose from.

The ‘Chaise’ hair from Analog Dog is one of my favourites!! I love the flexi mesh that has so much volume and wonderful waves!

As usual, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins. I’ve added one of the nine colour options from the Mythic shaodw set of eye shadows from Veechi. I’m also wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya along with the ballet feet from SLink.

This pose is from the ‘Good Girl’ pose set from infiniti.

After seeing some shots of the beautiful NorderNey sim, I decided to spend the Lindens to join the group to gain access to it! For anyone who takes lots of beach pictures, it’s well worth the money, it’s gorgeous!!

Two Heads Are Better Than One!

I’ve pondered mesh heads quite extensively in the past, and I was quite vehement about never getting one! I’d said there’s no personality, they all look alike, and who wants to have a face that everyone else has! Well, I have to admit that they don’t all look alike, they do have personality, and although I have mesh heads that many other women have…..I don’t think I look like them! I’ve splurged on the Chloe mesh head from Logo and it will take some getting used to! At first it seemed completely confusing, but with a little help I’ve gotten that hang of it. I went through a lot of demos looking for another mesh head, mainly one that is Omega compatible, and some of them just weren’t me at all! Some have a deep dark bitchy look that I just can’t relate too. I think Chloe looks kind of sweet and happy. I’m really nothing like Chloe in real life!! 😉

I’m really excited that KRALUS is back with some outstanding new releases!! This time around I’m wearing the Nicolette Dress in white! It’s a sexy strapless mini with a plunging back with straps to bring attention to your sexy shoulders and back! This is one of the four designs that’re included in the set and they come in five sizes plus fitted for the Belleza and SLink Physique mesh bodies. Also included in the pack is two pair of boots, one knee high and one thigh high and both compatible with the standard avatar, plus the Maitreya, Belleza, and SLink Physique mesh bodies. It’s at a great price, right now, on Market Place.

Genre is on and the theme for October is Lovecraft! This includes cthulus, victoriana, horror, and more! Anachron has released the Innsmouth Necklace for it. This is the Tainted Blood version, one of the three available! Genre runs until October 31.

I love the rich colours of this nail applier! This is from the Hex Invocation set from Hello Dave! There’s twelve sets in The Hex Collection with each set containing five designs! While your there remember to pick up the October Mystery box and get the information about the Hello Dave Halloween Hunt at All Hallows at Moochie, which is the ground level of the Moochie Sim. The hunt has thirteen nail appliers to hunt for in a gorgeous setting!

I’m wearing the Alsou skin in January tone from PumeC.

The Olivia hair, from the blacks pack, is from Analog Dog.

The basics of my body are the Chloe mesh head from Logo, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the casual hands from SLink.

I came across the lovely Outer Garden for these pictures.

‘No Topic’ Sunday!

I’m taking this day as a bit of a vacation! I don’t have a topic to ponder or an opinion to share! I don’t have an enlightened quote or song lyric to make think! Hell, I don’t have any thoughts at all in my brain right now!! So, here’s the outfit!!

Where to start? In no particular order, I’ll begin with the Grains of Sand poses from Le Poppycock!! There’s two packs to choose from, or just get both and you have a great set of poses for all your posing needs! Ha ha…..doesn’t that sound like an advertisement? Anyway, the Grains of Sand poses and the couples pose, ‘Follow Me’, are both available at the new round of The Chapter Four!!

I love the Kat Dress from DECOY!! It’s available at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair and it’s compatible with the Maitreya Lara mesh body! It comes in five colours to choose from, with this being the Purple!

A new round of The Thrift Shop has begun and there are steals to be had!! The Anna Sandals from Slipper Originals are one of them! The fatpack is HUD driven with five areas to customize with eighteen colours and five metals and at an astoundingly low price!! The Anna Sandals are compatible with the SLink high feet and the Maitreya Lara feet!

While your looking at the lovely shoes, take a gander at the nail appliers!! This is one of the five choices from the Sweet Serve applier pack from Hello Dave! There’s tons of new stuff out and a new VIP gift too!

The Manga Fair has begun and Veechi has a couple exclusives for the event!! I’m wearing one of the nine selections from the Kami Shadow Liner set! It’s compatible with the classic avatar plus has appliers for the Genesis Labs(seen here), Lelutka, Catwa, and Logo mesh heads! Great make up is all in the details!! My beauty mark is also from Veechi, it’s from the Beauty Marks 01 set and available at the main store!

The Jenna hair from Analog Dog is a gift that’s available at the current round of The Gacha Garden! Just join the Gimme Gacha group, which is free to join, and you can haul in all the gifts from really great designers!!

The body basics for me are the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Maitreya Lara mesh body, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.
