Halfway…

Technically halfway through the month is on the 15th but who am I ever to be technical…well except for correct spelling as it is a pet peeve of mine and my brain goes crazy when I see people either being super lazy not looking up a word or just spelling it how it sounds to them ~ think that is called spelling it phonetically ~ yes I know slang but even that some mess that up instead of what’s up it is shortened to sup then those that only hear the z will write zup ~ am like huh? So yes it is a quirk, or pet peeve or whatever you wanna label it ~ getting back to why halfway is important is that if you are still looking for a very nice trendy outfit that will fit in at clubs, events or just casual this outfit by Evolve called Abianne is only at Designer Showcase for 15 more days ~ and I really love the design of this ~

MagicM1b

Wearing Abianne by Evolve

Looking chic and very fashion trendy with the one arm sleeveless I just chose a very rich Purple color ~ this is 2 separate pieces that each have their own Hud ~ and each color is very rich and royal looking ~ actually for me it looks something that you would see come strutting down a runway ~ to accessorize I had to choose Chop Zuey‘s item “Shadow of Iris” a really well done, with very detailed choker and earrings ~

MagicM1a

Shadow of Iris by Chop Zuey 

Per her very high standards that Belle applies to all her work this is another keeper for me ~ if you look at the gems surrounding the skull they can be changed to fit your mood ~ there is also 3 different sets of earrings you may choose from ~ love the look of this as it sits nicely on my neck ~ and you can also see that I am wearing Amaria Skin Head Applier by Avada that is also one of the Designers at the Showcase this month ~ 10 skin tones with each one comes a shape ~ remember to try a demo as at times your shape may produce a different and unique look ~

MagicM1c

Closer look 

If you can see the nice draw string on the pants is another cute detail that I like and because they are separates you are able to mix match with others getting more bang for your lindens ~ I can see the top with a nice long black skirt making it very uber formal and also the pants matched with just a simple tank top that will bring that look to something on a casual Sunday morning ~ please take my TAXI to Designer Showcase so you can try on the demo’s for the skin, the outfit and just wander around ~ and hey wander outside to as well and go sit on the deck with a friend to relax ~ Dena is telling me something about “spots” hmmm no clue what that means but stick around ok…peace to you ~ life is just too short ♥

Credits go to Belle Roussel owner/creator of Chop Zuey for always giving me the opportunity to show off her magnificent jewelry items as well as to Reign Congrejo owner/creator of Evolve for her awesome customer service as well and finally to the Stephanie Fishnet owner/creator of Avada for the lovely Catwa skin applier for this month ~ thank you all

All about gifts…

Everyone loves gifts especially if they are things you can use, or wear, or just plain cute…as I get older as everyone does my gifts that I receive have dwindled down to almost nil, which am not complaining because I love researching, buying and packaging gifts for others rather than receiving ~ but in Second Life oh yes I love gifts if they are good quality ~ Ones that I want to tell you about are the gifts from Cosmopolitan that celebrated their 5th Anniversary and the other is The Gacha Garden ~ good thing I went to The Gacha Garden broke because OMG I would of gone broke within minutes ~ they are so addicting ~ Here are just a sample of the gifts that I was fortunate to receive ~

Gift1

Gifts Galore 

Everything you see in the above pic was a gift from either Cosmopolitan or The Gacha Garden plus what I am wearing as I will show you close up~ from the Cosmopolitan Anniversary which just finished on August 12th with so many Designers setting out gifts like the cute puppy from TLC, Sugar Fixes everything Art by Sequel, Neon Heart by Chez Moi and the Vase from Lacrime was a group gift from The Gacha Garden along with the Electric rainbow from [Kres] as well as the Tin Lantern from Velvet Whip

Gift1a

Hair, Necklace, Bangle and Dress

What you see me wearing all came from The Gacha Garden ~ Analog Dog outdid themselves with their gift called eevee ~ my apologies for not turning around to show you there is not just 2 braids but 3 and yes AND this comes as a Fatpack so you have limitless color choices ~ am wow’d as you should be ~ [Glitzz] gift is the slim bangles and the necklace is from  .::Supernatural::. ~ with the dress that is from *PROMAGIC* ~ there is an entire outfit made up of the generosity of The Gacha Garden designers ~

Gift1b

Fanny’s Fireplace from Spargel & Shine Homes 

Absolutely love this fireplace as it comes just like this but it is mod that you can move either the candles or the flower vase if so choose…Both groups you will have to join and I highly suggest them both not only for the gifts, which is great but I love both of these events and always make a point to check on Seraphim to see what is being offered ~ it is my go to website that kudo’s to that group for doing such an awesome job on keeping up with all the events must be daunting at times ~ Again I do have to thank each designer that participates as there were so much more I could of shown you ~ The Gacha Garden is still in full swing and the group fee is ZERO ~ love the quality of the items from there and always make a point to check out what is going on ~ stick around as Dena is going to be showing her latest outfit ~ till next time remember please life is too short to hate ♥

Excuse me..

All dressed up wearing one of Hilly Haalan newest outfits called “Rilynn” and I get lost again ~ well besides being lost I kind of crashed my latest car into a ditch and looks super stuck ~ rolling my eyes as you would think I would learn my lesson ~ but I discovered this bike track and maybe they can help me ~

Biker1a

Wearing Rilynn by Hilly Haalan

Looks like a gathering of men that are much more interested in discussing the latest bike parts than giving me a second look ~ “Hey Excuse me guys” I say in a rather loud voice but no one looks up and one dude doesn’t even turn around ~ they do not even notice my stiletto heels that are so hawt that I pace back and forth ~

Bikerd

Heels included

I just shake my head and start to walk back on the track as I know men at times get into discussions about their toys there is not disturbing them ~ shrugs but need to show you a close up of this sexy outfit and let you be the judge

Biker1c

closer look

The criss cross lacing up the front of the skirt really was a drawing factor into wearing this ~ unique and there is a white version that is also included ~ you get a clutch as well but I left it inside the car like a dummy I am ~ the sweater top also comes in white as all is separate you can mix/match to get different looks for one price another win in my book ~ and don’t forget those gorgeous heels either ~ Now where is this you wanna know ~ Marketplace and her Main Store ~ and if you are at either place look around as her outfits are always reasonably priced and include everything ~ for me I gotta start the long walk back home as it might take me awhile but will be back soon to show you some other goodies ~ enjoy and be good to one another ~ life is too short ♥

Foggy start…

Waking up and seeing fog makes me smile ~ yes I am aware that most are not fans of fog but its the weekend am not going anywhere except to grab my cup of coffee and head outdoors to read a couple of chapters in the book am reading ~ must confess though that in all honesty it would not be a book am grabbing but my “Kindle Paperwhite” ~ just cannot imagine how far technology has come that my small Kindle has over 400 books inside it ~ that is amazing…plus reason I got not just a Kindle but a Paperwhite was the fact you can read outdoors without a glare like most tablets you are unable to use outside…I absolutely love that fact especially during summer sitting outside enjoying the sun and reading some of my favorite authors like James Patterson or John Grisham or even discovering new mystery writers as in  Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke who wrote “The Good Widow” woah that was a page turner ~ was one of my Unlimited books from Amazon that I just finished reading ~ here is LINK if you like to check it out ~

DS10a

Enjoying Coffee & Book

Oh did you notice am wearing one of Finale Coutures outfits Tyra that is at Designer Showcase this month ~ love such a great pair of jeans ~ as you can see on the knees they are shredded ~ its always nice to find Designers that pay attention to details ~ let me stand up to show you the rest of the outfit since the fog is rolling in pretty heavy ~

DS10bb

Close up of Tyra outfit 

The cropped sleeveless knitted sweater with the cutout pattern really makes this outfit such a keeper ~ and then you notice the belt as well another detail the designer has remembered ~

DS10c

Bum view 

Turning around so you can also see the features on my bum from the design on the back pockets that she had to known my RL jeans look exactly like that ~ as well as the give in the fabric on the top so it does not stretch out when moving ~ 7 different color options to choose from beside the one I am wearing all in pastel colors ~ fitting my Maitreya like a second skin the way you just want your jeans to fit ~ plus making my bum look good too always helps ~ not fan of a saggy pants on my azz *giggling*

DS10b

Tyra Outfit in Lilac

I would stick around but this fog is getting pretty heavy that am barely able to see in front of me as clumsy as I am no need to fall and break something ~ but you need to grab my TAXI and check this outfit Tyra by Finale Couture ~ month is halfway and you should not miss out on this and the price ~ till next time I send you each hugzz ~ peace out♥

Rise up…

Ever have a song that you want to hear over and over ~ am sure the answer is yes as I have a couple especially one that recently the words have gotten stuck into my brain and that is by Andrea Day “Rise up” mostly it is the chorus and love how she really gets into that ~ maybe I needed to get that little oomph as well ~ but putting on the gown from PurpleMoon that is at Designer Showcase made me think of that song ~ standing on steps thinking how I will rise up ~ silly umm possible but I think we all do what it we can to make it to another day or to get past something ~ song, words, quotes at times helps each of us ~

DS8b

Wearing Bouquet Gown in Black by PurpleMoon

Absolutely stunning floral gown that will be a summer delight along with all the other days of the year ~ wearing just suede lippy so it does not deter your eyes from the beauty of this gown but as I turn around you can see I did slip on one of my favorite tats for my back ~ am not a big tattoo wearer at all ~ also keeping my hair short and chic I felt like the whole package as I stood on the stairs waiting to climb up to wherever it takes me…

DS8bb

Back View

I like the gathering at the back of the waist ~ just enough to make it look chic ~ and yes there is plenty of room for those that do wear tats to make a statement as you can see one of my fave quotes “dare to dream” as we all must have and do ~ dreams help us through challenging times ~ As I turn back around to show you a closeup of the neckline I love the material the designer used ~

DS8c

Closer view

Simply stated with those bare shoulders and overall very form fitting ~ you have 4 other color options to choose one along with a demo for fit sizing as this does go on perfectly in my Maitreya body ~ Here is my TAXI to help you on your way to Designer Showcase where this gown and so many other items are waiting for you ~ I will leave you with the lyrics of the chorus as I keep hearing it playing in my mind ~ enjoy♥

And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
And I’ll rise up
High like the waves
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousands times again
For you
For you
For you
For you

Seaside outing…

Taking a trip in RL to my nearest beach called Brighton is a great outing for me as believe it or not I try and go as often as I can as I just love the atmosphere and the hustle and bustle of the streets and exploring the lanes, so was really pleased to find that SL has a Brighton Beach too ~grabbing Starr as I wanted to show her one of our Great British landmarks, plus was also looking forward to checking it out ~ along with this being a duel post that we both will be wearing Journey’s top and jeans ~ so follow us as we zip over to Brighton Pier and have a walk around ~

DS2

Brighton Pier ~ 

We have to be careful when got to there as I told Starr about how greedy the seagull can be with food..you can even see the seagulls got smart and we watched them trying to take a whole trash can away ~ theses Journey jeans and Journey top by Prism are just right for a seaside trip, cool and comfortable which is what we liked when out and about, with their paisley pattern fit right in down here at Brighton as you see people dressed very casual..

DS2a

Starr and I both wearing Surfside/Seaside Fades by Prism

Both of us spied the photo board that is always fun ~ check us out LOL

DS2aa

Me as a Mermaid and Starr as the Diver 

Yes Starr nudged me to give you closer looks and a bum look as well so just bare with me as I am not as fast with the cam as Starr is hehehe

DS2b

Bum View of Top and Jeans by Prism

Can you see how nicely they shape my bum as well with the turned down draping and if you look just above my neck you can see the clasp of Chop Zuey’sShadow of Iris” choker~as always the details impress me with her work…

DS2a_006

Starr wearing Shadow of Iris Choker, Bracelet and Earrings

Here you get a nice closer look at the choker and bracelet plus the fact it has a gorgeous hud with many features of being able to resize along with changing the beads from each side ~ once you see mine you will notice how I changed ~

DS2a_005

Myself wearing Choker and Earrings by Chop Zuey also

Really lovely design work that to me screams excellent workmanship and quality that Chop Zuey is known for ~ from the choice of gems and metals it all is something I would really wear in RL as well…

DS2bb

Sita Sandals by Shoenique

Starr and I both chose comfy sandals for a walk on the boards and Shoenique’s Sita Sandals were just the right ones ~ btw they are at this months Designer Showcase too ~ from all that walking around I saw Starr with one of those mobility scooters and we had a go at using them to have some crazy driving around the entire pier ~ she is a good a driver as me, which in SL is not saying a lot good thing no one was around that we had to scream “get outta the way”

DS2d

Watch out everyone 

Our outfits held up and still look fabulous after spending an afternoon at the shore and got to point out different but same things that the RL Brighton Beach has as well ~ the Seaside Fades Tops by Prism will go perfectly with the Surfside Fades Jeans also by Prism and in case you are curious there are demo’s as well for fit purposes ~ hope each of you enjoyed our little excursion and no again Starr reminded me to give you a RIDE to Designer Showcase so you can walk around and look at all this months goodies and btw have you actually walked outside the Showcase as Aisha Convair owner of Designer Showcase has set up a nice area to sit and chat with tables and umbrellas ~ till next time as you never know where Starr and I will be off to but as always stay safe and be good to one another ♥

Sunflowers…

Dena and myself decided to do another dual post that is always fun to do and seeing that we both blog for Designer Showcase it is always nice to be able to show not just one color but 2 colors at the same time ~ along with I was telling Dena about I loved growing sunflowers in RL when I was growing up and not just one but several that my Mom would be going “whoa there is a field of them in the corner of backyard…then she would yell my name which for anyone that is southern will know that means first & middle name and that means ut oh you are in trouble…back then it was library going to research how to fix them once they are done ~ for my Mom is what calling on the phone to her various 5 sisters asking them for recipes ~ and yes she enjoyed the seeds as much as I did so was not upset that every spring I snuck out and planted about 25 or more LOL ~ they really are a very hardy plant to grow ~ and if you want more info please click HERE but in Second Life seems it is even easier to grow thanks to Zo Awesum with this month’s item at Designer Showcase ~

Sunflowers by Zo Awesum

You get a nice hardy bunch of sunflowers that come with poses as well ~ and Dena and I both grabbed the dress Alice by KIB Designs also at this month’s Showcase

Myself & Dena wearing Alice by KIB Design

As you see am wearing the purple with the star decorations on the pockets, down the front and collar with Dena wearing the black with the nice herringbone texture…there are 3 other colors to choose from along with a demo ~ this pose from Zo Awesum can be used with friends or that special someone ~ here is another peek at the other pose…

DS1b

Unisex poses

I do love the poses as they are very unisex the only comment I will make because I do like to give you honest opinions of items I blog is there is no function to edit the poses as I would’ve liked to be able to adjust our pose to get us a little bit closer ~ still it is a great 3 pose/prop that I will keep on the grounds of my house as it looks nice and reminds me of good memories with my Mom…Before I forget please take my TAXI so you can try the dresses and look at the image of the prop plus all the other goodies that are out at Designer Showcase ~ psssst stick around we have some more to show/tell you ~ yes both of us *giggling…hugzz from Dena and myself ♥
