Sweet Dreams

I’m going to close my eyes for just a few minutes, give my mind a rest and maybe drift off to where anything is possible! I take a deep breath and slowly exhale, trying to rid my body and mind of stress. I make a mental note to relax each part of me and to feel the tension flow out of my body. OK….this is good, I’m feeling calm and peaceful. I slow my breathing and let myself go, wanting just a short nap to refresh and regroup for the day. I’m falling, the fresh breeze and sunshine on my skin is the only thing I know. As I drift off a thought occurs to me, I didn’t pay my phone bill, and it’s due! I should go do that! No, it’s OK….it can wait another half hour! But if I don’t do it right away I might forget to do it later! I won’t forget, just relax and go back to drifting off to sleep. I breath in then exhale slowly shifting into a more comfortable position, nope….now this isn’t going to work! My eyes are open wide and I know the moment has passed that I could fall asleep and get a nap! Why do my attempts at naps always seem to end this way? I’m usually up between 4 and 5 AM, so a nap would be nice, but I just can’t control my thoughts for longer than a few minutes! OK…I may as well get up and get going, again! And so it goes, another nap ended before it even began!

The June round of The Liaison Collaborative is on and Le Poppycock has released the ‘Stay Cool’ pose prop gacha set! It’s right full of fun in the sun summer activities, with props including this mat and magazine, a tube to enjoy water activities and a fan for some cool air on a hot day! They’re all fun and unique with great poses! The Liaison Collaborative runs until June 30.

I’m wearing the ‘Del Sol Bikini Collection’ from !APHORISM! here! It’s the blue satin version and it’s compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies.

The ‘Hani’ hair from [monso] is so cute. This is from the blacks pack and it’s unrigged for easy fitting!

The rest of me is the Alex mesh head from Logo with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins(soon to be ‘Avada’). I’m also wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the flat feet from SLink.

I’m at my home in ‘Winters Wind‘(which has a couple vacancies right now) and I’m laying on ‘The Jetty’ by IMMERSIV.

The three witches stand above me, cackling and chortling as they move my body to and fro, finding the perfect pose for me, for I’m at their mercy. After long moments of silence I begin to think that they’ve gone, but then a soft whispered incantation begins and I know that they wait, for what I don’t know. My body has no feeling and I’m unable to move other than my eyes, which is more a curse than a gift, for I can see them, when they look over the railing to see what their ministrations have done to my lifeless form. I feel a terror welling up from deep inside me and I stifle a scream, I know it will do no good, they would just take more pleasure from my misery. I see a flurry of movement out of the corner of my eye, and landing near the edge of the stage, lies a ladies suit jacket, it’s grey tweed with big lapels and has the wide wide SHOULDER PADS of the eighties. I shudder inside thinking of how it would sit so high and firm on my shoulders and I can’t bear to think about it. Just then, something falls in a heap just at the edge of my peripheral vision on the other side. It lies there, motionless, but I can feel an energy within it trying to break free and envelope me in its evilness! I can see it’s shape and my heart begins racing wildly, it’s BELL BOTTOM PANTS! I inhale sharply as I realize that I once wore these, red polyester, the widening of the pant leg starting at the knees and getting wider as it reaches the foot, and not called low rise….but hipsters! I’m now between fear and shame for having made such a terrible fashion choice all those years ago! I close my eyes, praying that this reign of terror will end, but I know, the weird sisters above have more in store for me! Just then, I hear a soft swooshing noise and two brightly coloured objects flash past the far reaches of my line of vision. They land with a soft mushy sound and I roll my eyes as far as I can to see them bouncing lightly as they land. No……no…no….no……I will die if forced to don the DAYGLO ORANGE CROCS that have come from above! I hear soft whispers and then the voices rise, an obvious argument is underway as the women bicker among themselves, muttering and sometimes yelling out in anger! I listen intently and as the quarrel gets nastier and meaner, I realize what they’re fighting about, it’s all about me! They fight to control me, urging me to favour them with my attention in the competitive world of Second Life fashion! My eyes close, my heart thumps uncontrollably in my chest, and I know, this is not good………

I sit up in bed, in complete terror, and my rapid breathing settles a little as I realize I’ve had the dream again. The fourth time in as many days, will it ever end? It’s the same every time, the women, the clothes, and me, a mere puppet to their fashion whims! I get up for a glass of water and reaffirm to myself how far this dream is from the truth! I have incredible designers that I’m extremely proud to feature, and I know they would never create such styles as to make me cringe! I stand at the kitchen counter, the sweat from the night terror cooling my face, and I smile….seeing that the alarm clock won’t ring for another hour, I have a bit of time to get started on my newest outfit to feature!

I want to thank a few people who made this post possible. First, Green Adder of IMMERSIV, who brought the idea to life with his many hours of work. I swear he’s a workaholic!β™₯ The 3 beautiful ladies above me are, on the left, Olivia Lalonde of Le Poppycock. She’s the pose master of Second Life! On the right is Elle Polygon of Slipper Originals. Elle’s specialty is shoes, glorious and fabulous shoes! And last but not least, in the middle, is my wonderful real life and Second Life sister, Gillian Galicia. She got me started in blogging and you can find her work on her blog, Gillian’s Island. Thank you, sweet ladies, for taking the time, and having the patience to work with me.

When I Look in Your Eyes

When I look in your eyes, I see the wisdom of the world in your eyes
I see the sadness of a thousand goodbyes
When I look in your eyes
And it is no surprise, to see the softness of the moon in your eyes
The gentle sparkle of the stars in your eyes
When I look in your eyes

When I Look in Your Eyes ~Diana Krall~

The plan was for a little bit of night time ice fishing! We’d enjoy the crisp winter air, the full moon high in the sky, and the twinkle of stars above. The silent world around us is peaceful with a light snow falling, but we’ve gotten a little sidetracked! And is that a bad thing? πŸ™‚

Green Adder, the creator of the ‘Icefishers’ pose prop, has joined me for this photo. The newest release from IMMERSIV is perfect for a winter outing, either alone or with someone. There’s nice expressive poses for men, women, and couples that you can adjust to fit your avatar nicely. The prop consists of the ice surface, sled, axe, and the extra fishing rod, and it’s copy/modify so you can move it around to suit your needs. The prop also dispenses the extra props for the poses that require it. So, if you want to spend a little bit of time out in the fresh winter air, why not try ice fishing……you never know what you may catch! πŸ˜‰

I’m a little far away to get a good view of my outfit, but here’s what I have on. The Peace on Earth Hunt 9 starts tomorrow and FLIPPANT will have the incredible POE Boots hidden somewhere in the store for the entire month of December. I’ll be giving you a closer look at these in the very near future! A perfect pair of winter boots are a ‘must have’, and since the Peace on Earth Hunt 9 is a free hunt, there’s no reason to have cold feet!

The Aspen hair from Wasabi Pills is an adorable hair/scarf combo at the current round of The Forest!

I’m wearing the Tove Turtleneck from Stories&Co. by Flowey.

The Ribbed Knit Leggings appliers are from Simply Sage.

I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Irina skin in pale tone from itGirls along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the elegant1 hands from SLink.

I hadn’t been to It All Starts With a Smile on the Heavenly Groove sim before, so I was stunned with how beautiful it is there. And, by joining the VIP group, rezzing rights are included!

Welcome to My World, Won't You Come in?

First off tonight I want to bring your attention to the newest pose prop from IMMERSIV! It’s called FemmeFatale and it consists of a wall and door with poses that invite that special someone into your boudoir! It contains six poses that can be adjusted for your avatar, plus the door and wall are texture change, via drop down menu, with a nice variety of options! I’m sure there’s many ways I could invite someone in to my bedroom….but I’m pretty sure this pose, eye contact, and this outfit should do it! πŸ™‚

I’m always super excited about a new release from GLAMISTRY and the latest release is one of the best yet…..in my humble opinion, of course! The ROSE Heels are super sexy with a nice high heel and a wonderfully detailed rose! As with all GLAMISTRY shoes, they’re HUD driven with lots of colour options to choose from and when you get the fatpack the options are endless, plus the Rose Heels have five areas to customize!! They’re compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh feet!

I’m wearing one of the nine colours from the Stygian Shadow pack from Veechi. They’re compatible with the classic avatar plus the Genesis Labs(seen here), Catwa, Logo, Akeruka, and Lelutka mesh heads! I love the bold colours of this pack and after it’s time at The Liaison Collaborative it should be in the main store pretty quick! My beauty mark is also from Veechi and it’s from the Beauty Marks 01 pack.

I wanted to look alluring for this post so I’ve donned the Lyx Bodysuit from DECOY. It’s compatible with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the Hourglass mesh body from SLink. It comes in six colours to choose from.

The hair I’m wearing is the Sherilyn Hair(frizzy chic) from Tableau Vivant.

My avatar consists of the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, and the elegant 1 hands and high feet from SLink.
