Dura Hair

Thoughts & Feelings

regrets of what wasn’t…. hope for a better day…. grief for loved ones gone…. longing for what was…. dreams of future love…. embracing who I am…. rid myself of hate…. joy in the little things…. inspired by the people in my life…. fear of what might be…. powerless in this world we live…. accepting of my own limitations…. thankful for everything I have…. bored with current events…. melancholy for something I’ve never had…. trusting everything will be OK…. fascinated by nature…. despair for our society…. free myself from bitterness…. finding peace within…. passionate for feeling alive….

All of that and I only sat there for 15 minutes! 😀 Such is my mind, it never stops completely and rarely rests.

I find that autumn affects me like no other season, yea, summer is a happy time and winter can be kind of depressing, but only autumn can make me feel ten emotions all in the space of 30 seconds. I don’t know what it is, but I find I can go from blissful to utter desolation all in the time it takes to blink an eye. I don’t mind, really, it’s feeling alive and in tune with the world. And who can complain about that?

Ok, enough said…lets get on with why I’m here. First, I’m wearing the ‘Daddy’s Baby Girl’ top and panties from [QE] Designs. The set is super cute and feminine and makes me feel young and sweet! The panties and top come with solid and sheer versions and the fatpack has 18 solids and patterns plus five bonus textures.

The ‘The Countess’ eyeglasses are from Earthstones, I think they make me look smarter. 😀

The Boys and Girls 76 hair is from Dura Hair, this is from the darks pack.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This comfy and relaxing sitting pose is from the ‘Curvaceous’ set of poses from oOo Studio Poses.

I’m sitting in the ‘Yesteryears Vintage Chair’ from Zen Creations.

The ‘Mid Century Bed’ from Dutchie is in the background. The amazing animations and quality design make it a must have.

The houseplants are all from {what next]. I think houseplants really create an intimate atmosphere and bring life to a room.

Fly

I can’t deny it anymore, fall is on it’s way! The mornings are a little cooler and the combines are starting to move into the fields to start the harvest, the Barn Swallows are beginning to flock into large groups for the flight south, and I’ve already seen Canada Geese and Sandhill Cranes on the move. I do love fall, or autumn if you prefer, but it signifies the end of summer and that’s always kind of sad. In the spring I always feel it’s a time of fresh starts and new life. The snow melting and the first blades of grass are always nice to see and then the arrival of the birds that come here for the summer to nest. The Barn Swallows arrived about a week earlier than usual, this year, and they seem to be gathering to head south a little early too. I’m not sure where the summer has gone, it feels like it was only a month ago that the snow was finally gone and the grass starting to grow. I fear that there isn’t going to be any glorious fall colours here this year. The summer was far too dry and at this point the leaves have just started to turn brown on a lot of the trees. It’s been one of those summers that the hardy people of the Canadian prairie sum it up well by saying, “Well, maybe next year!”.

I wanted to really bring out the tattoo I’m wearing here so I chose to go black and white for this one. I love birds of all kinds but have a special affinity for some. The Corvids(crow family) are favourites of mine, at least in thought. The cheeky little wrens are fun to watch as they’re so industrious and the barn swallows are always welcome. They’re good for keeping insect populations down in the yard and watching them raise their young is always interesting. Ok, back to the tattoo, no one cares that I like birds! 😛 The ‘Swallows’ tattoo from Metamorphoses Tattoo caught my eye immediately with these beautiful birds so nicely placed. The front of this tattoo includes two bird pasties and a nice little flock on the belly along with one on each hand and also one for the left cheek. It’s compatible with classic avatars as well as Maitreya, Belleza, SLink, TMP, Eve, and *KL* Lena mesh bodies plus any bodies that are compatible with the Omega system. The little swallow on the cheek is compatible with the Catwa and Omega compatible mesh heads. You’ll find this tattoo and more at the Metamorphoses Tattoo main store or on Market Place.

You can just see the top of the ‘Thong Panty’ from Solange!. It’s Maitreya and SLink mesh body compatible along with standard sizing.

You can only see the back of the Boys and Girls 69 hair from DURA Hair. Along with the hair base from the master HUD for the Catwa ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head.

I know that skin tone doesn’t mean much in black and white, but I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

And as for the home decor around me, I love the ‘Love Make’ sign from [Krescendo]. Which is in the lyrics of the song ‘The End’ by The Beatles.

The ‘Filmore Factory Clock’, which is a real clock keeping time for me with my home time zone, is from 7 Emporium.

The ‘Yesteryears Vintage Chair’ is from Zen Creations. I love the rustic and homey feel it has.

The ‘Vintage Lighting-Star Globe, RARE’ is from the Vintage Lighting gacha set from ::Static::.

The ‘Majestic Radio’ is from the ‘Vintage Radio’ gacha set from KraftWork. All of the radios in this set come with two versions, one is just decor and the other scripted to stream.

The ‘Side Table’ is from the ‘Dark Oak’ gacha set from Bee Designs, and available until the end of the month at The Chapter Four.

The house plants are from {what next}.

And last but not least, the pose! I’m using the number 2 pose from the ‘Slow Burn’ pose set from Gingerfish Poses.

Twofer

As you can probably see, I’m up kneeling on a pool table here, and I’m sure the owner of this fine establishment isn’t impressed with me! But, when it comes to taking pictures sometimes you have to ruffle a few feathers! So up I crawled on the pool table for this shot! I’ve played pool a bit over the years, but it ‘s never been a big love of mine! I wasn’t very good, and when combining it with alcohol, I was even worse! I played quite a bit of it while I attended a short course at an agriculture college back in the day, and since every Tuesday and Thursday were 2 for 1 drink nights, we all had trouble keeping our balls on the table! 😀 But, we had lots of fun and it made for some great memories! And what about what I went there to learn? Oh I remember some of that, too!!

The Chapter Four began it’s June round a couple days ago and Slipper Originals is in the 2 for 1 section! I’m showing you part of this new release, it’s the Starfish Set, which includes necklace and bracelet. The other part of the 2 for 1 is the Shell Espadrilles! The shoes and jewelry are a fantastic start to a great look for summer! I urge you to zoom in close to have a look at the detail of the set. They’re both colour change on touch with fifteen colours for the beads and five metals. This is white beads with copper metal. It can also be resized via drop down menu!

I love the ‘Maya Tank’ from !APHORISM!. I have come to the conclusion that this is the ‘summer of the tank’ for me! I seem to want to wear shorts and a tank every day! This is one of my favourites and I’m glad I got the fatpack! There are matching panties sold separately and they both come in ten colours with 3 options each! They’re fitted for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies.

I have always loved the unisex hair from Dura Hair, so I had to grab the Boys & Girls 78 hair at the newest round of TMD. This is from the Darks pack.

The High Waisted Shorts are one of my favourites, and they’re from Maitreya!

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 a light lipstick from the ‘Fresh Lip Tint’ pack for the Logo mesh head from Pink Fuel. The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya!

I’ve been on a bit of a pose shopping spree lately and I was looking for sitting poses specifically! I found this one in the ‘Sit Fatpack’ set of poses from M I L A Poses!

I found this place at The Empire! I’ll be going back for some more exploring, there’s all kinds of great areas if you like dark and foreboding types of places! Which, of course, I do!

Life Swap

It’s been awhile since my last post, and at this point I just want to completely swap lives! I’d love to make my Second Life my first life…really! The worries are less, the fun is more, and the days can be sunny all the time! I normally don’t like to say, “I’m busy”! The word ‘busy’ is used so much in today’s world that I’m the kind of person that’s usually not busy at all, even though I have all my work done and under control! But, this spring has seemed busier than usual! It might just seem like I have no time for Second Life, or maybe it’s my energy level is less than usual. When I’m done my work I just want to recline in my chair and watch a little bit of TV and read the book of the moment! So, if I could only make my Second Life my real life! I’d be younger, slimmer, more beautiful, and dress a whole lot better! I’d have two homes and the freedom to travel, I’d shop all the time and store all my stuff in a closet that never runs out of space, and when I’m done all that, after a short sit down on the deck of my beach cabin, I’d get up and do it all over again!

I want to show you a little something that I received from a friend who now has a little shop on Market Place! I’m using the photo prop “The Visitor” from IMMERSIV by Green Adder! It’s a nice little dock on the shore with twelve poses for him, her and a couple! And each pose has a nicely placed ladybug to keep you company! It’s copy/modify and the water and bottom surface can be made invisible! It makes a nice relaxing place to sit and ponder life!

The Trio Bird necklace from FLIPPANT is a pretty little accessory for some summer fun! It’s the group gift for June so just become a member of the group(free to join) and head over to the new main store…..and it’s yours! It can be resized via drop down menu and it’s 100% mesh!

The Tropical Summer Fair is on and Veechi has some darling nail appliers exclusive to the event! The Sunset Tips completely epitomize what summer is all about! The pack contains ten colours and it’s compatible with SLink, Maitreya, and Omega! The fair runs until June 17, so don’t wait too long to get some summer shopping done!

You can see a little part of the Butterfly Medley tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t! It’s Omega and TMP compatible along with tattoo layers for the classic avatars! It has three ink tones and speaks loudly of happy summer times!

The Cassie Bikini is from Absolut Vendetta!

The Nelly Mesh head, from Genesis Laboratories, is now my head of choice. I’m wearing it in the cream skin tone.

The Boys & Girls 58 hair is from Dura.
