{ Cozy Christmas }

 

Twas the night before Christmas….

… that all through the house

this blogger was too busy, there was no time to slouch.

 

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

but not on her platform, no she wouldn’t be found there.

 

For real life was calling; there was much still to do

and Second Life would have to wait…no blogging pictures yet – boo!!

 

But now that the gifts have been given, the presents are unwrapped

the foods all been eaten and that means I can finally RELAX

 

So off to my computer I flew like a flash

logged in and got snapping and prayed not to crash.

 

I sprang from my seat, and to myself gave a ‘wewt wewt’

The task was complete and the result was pretty cute!

 

Although it’s a day late, the sentiment is still valid alright..

HAPPY BELATED CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

I’ve been a busy little elf working on getting our home and sim changed over for Winter/Christmas which is pretty amazing considering how most seasons I’m 1000% behind on. Gonna make Santa proud this year (even if I am still on the naughty list). But I’m enjoying it so much.. finally having a “home” in SL and not just a place to take pretty pictures. I was given a stern talking to about not accurately depicting how this all went down, and it’s true.  I had help from my love, Mr. Roxan and my lovely, sweetness, Cecilia, in getting all the beautiful ornaments up on the tree.  Unfortunately we were too busy chatting for me to capture that in a photo. Plus there was a blinging Freenis on the top of the tree then.  I spared you all from the horror of that. 😛 You’re welcome.

{ Earth, wind and fire } The Secret Affair is back!

The Secret Affair is back with it’s summery boho beauty!  From now until July 29th, you’ll find gorgeous creations from your favorite designers and creators in fashion, accessories, poses, and home decor!

One of my favorite items from this event so far is this lovely boho chic outfit with tie top and maxi skirt.  Both are texture change via a HUD with several different mix and match options of solids and prints. Definitely get down to check out this bi-monthly event before it ends.

In addition I’m showing off several new things out at The Liaison Collaborative right now, as the theme this month is “Dreamweaver” and with it’s spiritualist and earth friendly offerings. The items between both events mix nicely!  TLC is open until July 30th.

{ Our love will survive }

If the sun don’t shine
If the world’s on fire
If the oceans rise
Our love will survive
Our love will survive
I don’t wanna see you cry
So baby, let me dry your eyes
I’ll be by your side
If the world stops spinning round
And heaven falls to the ground
I’ll be by your side

TheBay_FINAL3.jpg

If the sun don’t shine
If the world’s on fire
If the oceans rise
Our love will survive
If the sky falls down
If time runs out
When the trumpet sounds
Our love will survive
Under the lightning
Cursing and fighting
Oh, let down by to me
But toxic relations
Sweep through the nations
But your love is all I see

{ What dreams may come }

The Secret Affair is ending very soon, only a few short days, as it closes on March 31st…and I’m wanting to show you a softer, lighter side to the event’s creative offerings.

FairySpringBlue_FINAL

I was inspired by this lovely dress by !Go!, as it’s so very delicate and feminine in nature.  It perfectly suited a springtime blooming photo in a fairytale enchanted forest.  I hope you feel the dreaminess that I was trying to invoke while putting this together.  Whenever I’m searching for landscaping and trees, my go-to shop has always been Studio Skye by Alex Bader.. but when I want something perhaps a little more whimsical and airy.. HappyMood is just the place.  Adding in a touch of both gave me the balance I was looking for in addition to these really creative new botanical succulents by Artisan Fantasy.  Spring is certainly upon us and may the warmer weather bring us the beauty of nature we’ve been waiting for.
