“Would you lie with me and just forget the world?”

“Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life.” “All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see. I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all.” “If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?” I’m so sing-songy today! Important notes: Designer Showcase’s September round goes until the 26th; LaVian & CO’s Claudia ensemble and wedges are color changeable via a HUD; NANTRA’s Peace. Love. Wine. pose set has three poses with props and makes me yearn for a glass of vino. Want a TP to Designer Showcase? Click here!

“In a dream my memory has stored.”

What comes to mind when I write: “In the corner of two gowns with golden lace?” No real hidden meaning, but it is a hint. Styles by Danielle is participating in WOMENstuff Hunt 2015. TP to the Styles by Danielle and find the Stina gown for only 1L. The hunt gift Stina offers two styles. I mixed and matched, but one version has a lace overlay over the skirt. The version I’m wearing is typically worn with solid-colored gloves.  Check them both out at Styles by Danielle’s blog. Don’t miss out on the fun! WOMENstuff Hunt 2015 ends September 30th. Click here for a lift to Styles by Danielle! While you’re there, think about joining Styles by Danielle’s inworld group. There is a small enrollment fee, but all group members receive exclusive monthly gifts, a 30% discount on new releases, and tons of other on the spot group gifts and discounts.

True Love

My husband realized the true extent of my online confessions. I’m so glad I post disclaimers lol. I don’t keep a keep a typical journal, and whenever I blog, I like to envision the fashion as stories, so most of my posts reveal my moods.  Although, not today. I snapped these shots last week. I was totally on  the edge, so my hubby was a combination of weary agitation. Sascha’s Designs Wildrose is a recent release. I think you’ll find the gloves are a fun touch because you change the position of the hands with a HUD. Oh, even when I act out, it’s usually my way of keeping my hubby close. Mind you. His vehicle is safe.  Want your own version of Wildrose? Click Sascha’s Designs for your taxi. You can also find Wildrose in MP. I’m wearing: Sascha’s Designs Wildrose in Onyx

“…as long as there’s a light, my shadow’s over you…”

Sometimes, my husband doesn’t get it. While I’m glad he’s motivated, I still have to live for myself. Do I make the best decisions all time? Nope. Such is life. Life isn’t black and white, but I do love the contrast of black and white. Styles by Danielle’s Livia has three color options with its HUD. Black and white Jenny is September’s group gift. There’s a small enrollment fee to join Styles by Danielle’s group, but all group members receive exclusive monthly gifts (see above :) ), a 30% discount on new releases, and tons of other on the spot group gifts and discounts.

“If you’re the truest one, I’m gonna make you a season.”

Sometimes, I can’t handle the change in seasons. Even though it’s almost summer like in Vegas all the time, my body can sense summer is fading into fall. Speaking of fading, Designer Showcase’s August round ends tomorrow. I’ve been wearing the same old eyes since I found the perfect shade of blue, but I was pleasantly surprised to find I really liked Dulce Secret’s collection of mesh eyes. I can wear two colors at once! Many of you have probably gone that route or discovered the fun of mesh eyes. I’m sort of a late bloomer I guess? Make sure to check out Designer Showcase’s August event before it fades away into September. Click here for your ride. I’m wearing:

Live and Let Die

August 22nd brings the most indulgent event of the year. The The Hottie Cooterati Experience revealed, “The Festival of Sin returns with a promise of debauchery in the form of the seven deadliest sins.” While I’ve been known to partake in a sin or two (or three), Greed struck home. Since moving to Las Vegas aka Sin City, sins run abound, but Greed is especially noticeable due to the giant casinos and the sheer amount of cash flow and desperation to hit it big.  I mean…there are slot machines inside Smith’s Grocery Store, CVS, and most gas stations! When you hit the festival, you’ll find that seven neighborhoods symbolize each deadly sin. I actually loved walking around. Wrath was seedy and dirty. See the jail.  Lust was Moulin Rogue style where a newbie avatar dummy propositioned me. Envy reminded me of a white picket fence neighborhood, but the type of neighbors who secretly hate one another. I could go on and on, but you’ll have to see it for yourself.… Read the restLive and Let Die

“Is that why you wanted a love song?”

Husbands can be so bossy. The subtle types are the worst…or the best depending on one’s perspective. So, clearly it’s necessary to punish them with sweetness and kindness later. At least my husband because I’m usually moody. He would know something was totally wrong if I was super sweet for absolutely no reason at all. ;) Egoisme’s newest release Elegant Babydoll is “Feminine, chic, and oh so playful! The back is especially delicious to me. The barely hanging on by a thread is enticing and such a distractor. Elegant Babydoll comes in 8 gorgeous colors with just the right amount of sparkle. If you are an Egoisme Prestige member, don’t forget to wear your tag so you get that 25% discount!  Want a ride? Click I want to be an elegant babydoll for your lift. Credits:

Strange you never knew

One of my co-workers said she was always bummed out on sunny days. It threw me for a loop because I’m the exact opposite. Consequently, I tried to find the beauty in a gray sky day. I fell asleep several times, but I think that’s due to me laying in bed watching true crime TV. What did I learn? Perhaps I have conditioned myself to believe the sun inspires positivity. Because honestly, I’ve had plenty of lazy sunny days. Credits:

The Trivialities of Bad Blood: Is Butter a Carb?

It’s almost back to school! That means everyone suffers. Parents, children, working adults, and traffic. Don’t get me started on the average teenager’s level of suffering once school starts. I don’t know about you, but oh those days were tough! At the same time, elementary school was tough too. I’m actually Facebook friends with my former 1st-grade friend. She turned a whole gang of girls against me because I went to another classmate’s sleepover. There’s some scars  there. Now, as for the classmate that threw the slumber party? She’s actually a Facebook friend too, but I totally adore her. We remained best friends through High School and still communicate, albeit through FB.  No bad blood there. Incidentally, Loordes of London’s Winchester Prep mesh outfit is a total shout out to this time of year. It’s actually available at Designer Showcase for only 80L and in 6 versions. It’s the perfect back to school attire.… Read the restBad Blood

I can sense summer slipping away so I’m making the most of it. Of course, I live in Nevada, so it’s hard to get into fall when it’s so hot outside! Speaking of hot, Designer Showcase‘s August round has a hot mix of casual and glam wear. Have you been to this month’s fashion event? Click Designer Showcase for your lift. Credits:

“We never go out of style”

I’ve been on a Taylor Swift kick lately. I never thought I would write that! Swift’s actually a brilliant lyricist. I had no idea! Sorry, Tiffany Celestials as you told me about her some time ago lol. Whenever I blog, I listen to songs that go along with what I’m wearing. Sometimes, well…most of the time, I listen to that one song on repeat. The song of the day is “Style” because I’m seriously in love with my husband. Granted we aren’t off and on like the song, but we love certain ideas (okay fine…I do have a “good girl faith”) when it comes to the other, so our coupling will never go out of style. Speaking of which, Dani Plassitz‘s newest release Lindy will never go out of SL style. Lingerie always has its place, especially if it offers the option to get appliers for mesh bodies and traditional SL clothing layers. Styles by Danielle’s Lindy lingerie is available in red, beige, white, black and pink, and blue.Read the restWe never go out of style

“Catch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today, way up high in the sky…”

Oh, I love fantasy fashion in Second Life. In fact, I walked around in Second Life today, while wearing PurpleMoon‘s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream Corset” and an avatar complimented my look! It threw me for a loop. Personally, it’s the total opposite of getting caught shopping in real life because I never look this good in real life. ;) PurpleMoon’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream Corset” is available at The Instruments’ July round and comes in five shades: Pearl, White, Earth, Pink, and Aqua. A Hud drives the wing’s colors so you have the same color options, but you can also change the branches. Ooh, and don’t forget the Titania Sandals! They’re reminiscent of gladiator sandals, but they have a vixen edge.  July’s round at the Instruments ends on August 7th. This ensemble is only available at the Instruments, so click “I love fantasy fashion too” for your lift!… Read the restCatch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today, way up high in the sky

“This summer’s gonna hurt like a motherf***er.”

I think I’m getting used to Las Vegas summers because at 102 degrees F, it’s a fine day for sitting by the pool. It’s much too hot when it’s over 110. Those days require sitting in the pool! Tasty Couture’s Nora is an exclusive piece and is available for this month’s round at Designer Showcase. Here’s your lift and don’t forget your SPF! Credits:

“Got a long list of ex-lovers / They’ll tell you I’m insane.”

Sascha Frangilli knows romance, so I thought her gown Issy was particularly symbolic for today’s post. It’s my 18th-day wedding anniversary! No, I don’t go that far, but real life marriage rocks! My husband and I had been friends before we dated, and I don’t know if that makes the difference, but it does imply my former relationships’ foundations were rocky. In fact, I imagine many of our former friends believed we wouldn’t last because quite a few probably thought I was crazy. But hey, when a boyfriend thrives on chaos, it’s best to just play along. It’s nice to know those days are over. My new husband thrives on love, teamwork, friendship, and laughter. It doesn’t get any better, so I’ve officially retired my “crazy” card. This post may read as sickeningly sweet, but that’s only because it is sickeningly sweet. ;-) Issy is 50% mesh. As always, Sascha gives her buyers tons of options when it comes to skirts, so the flexi pieces dance with your moves and the dress’s body stays shapely and neat.… Read the restGotta long list of ex lovers, they'll tell you I'm insane

How to Train Your Raptor

Second Life is 12 years old! Can you believe it? While the celebratory events are over, the sims are open until July 4. There are some beautiful exhibits and the stages are always particularly fun to explore. What secret crooks and crannies will you find? I found a raptor. Much like Jurassic World, this raptor appears to have socialization skills and subsequently is trainable lol. I really did enjoy movie. It’s good campy fun, but the Party Raptor was a limited edition gift! I found it at the celebration while roaming around last week, but you can always try Marketplace! Now, while all good things must come to an end, others will take their place. Designer Showcase‘s, a monthly fashion event, July Round is open. Spend your Friday shopping and exploring!

Name of the Game

Dani Plassitz created a beautiful and colorful Balinese traditional dress for Miss SL 2015 Indonesia  Mio Linette.  Do you like? It’s available at Styles by Danielle Fashion House. Also, a Miss SL Boutique will open soon, as a charity for the Join Hands for Nepal; Fashion for Food, and it will be available there too. Good luck to all Miss SL candidates! Is it bad form to send Mio Linette extra positive vibes? Unless it’s already happened. I haven’t spent much time in world, but I feel special in her dress. Speaking of special, my real life wedding day is in 2 days. Yikes. I thought I was totally prepared, but how does one RL work and SL blog whilst planning a small wedding? I can’t imagine planning a super big ceremony. Hope this wedding is my last. ;) Credits:
