there are so many great places to explore, photograph that I was missing out on just using Backdrop City ~ oh I love all the backdrops but SL truly is about exploring ~ one of the reasons that kept me coming back over and over was all the creativity so for me I needed to get back to that and chose for today “Daily Grind” and I will take liberty and copy/paste to you what it says ” a premier destination for both artists and patrons of the arts. A land brimming with hidden places to explore & magic to experience! rides,
bikes, friends, cuddles, romance snow galleries, music, art”  and yes am showing off Jumo’s dress “Ricci” that is only at Designer Showcase this month.  did you notice the carousel is missing horses and seats, which kind of appeals to me a little on the unusual side but as I look around the place has a lot of unique and unusual items that will come back just to look, explore and take some pics.  this dress is gorgeous with the material of silk and lace and that very high slit going up to the hip.  creator gives you a Hud with solids and prints still keeping that lace all for a very reasonable price ♥ ooh not only that comes with those statement-making earrings that you just need to get a close-up…


wearing Bali by 7 Deadly s[K]ins

those earrings are truly a show stopper that deserves short hair or hair that you can give them the attention they warrant.  I am letting you see another new skin “Bali” that is at 7 Deadly s[K]ins in Apricot ~ this time I chose the browless so I could wear my favorite brows by Lurid that sadly is only on Marketplace now, which I will provide the link for you.  that’s it for the moment as I need to change and get ready for my first job as a dog walker in RL…will be back later ~ please be kind to yourself and others ♥

Hawt stuff…


showing off my booty

how can you not grab this hawt outfit especially if you are club person ~ yes this is not for someone who is shy and stands on the sidelines but to those that want to show off their bums of steel.  guess I need to turn around so you can see the front of this uber sexy outfit that yes does include those sleek boots.


wearing Olgha by GIULIA DESIGN

what I love about this outfit is the hud with a choice of 6 different colors for the skirt ~ the necklace, bra top, skirt, and boots are all inclusive only at Designer Showcase.  A demo is available for size fitting but I made no adjustments wearing my Maitreya.  This sassy outfit is one that I will be slipping back on when hubby and I go out dancing.  Rides will be posted below ~ remember to be kind to yourself and others ~ hugzz ♥♥

Derby time…


Standing next to “My Boy Jack”

standing in the pouring rain next to the horse that finished 5th in the Derby am looking pretty fantastic in my Derby finery ~ not sure how long that will last so I will be quick…slipping on a dress that was created by Jumo called Cara, which is truly a standout even in the rain ~ this gorgeous dress is sleek and very sexy…


wearing “Cara” by Jumo

and you can tell it comes with a great hud that has various textures and colors to choose from…love the way the creator created that hip peek using the bow to keep it together…there is a demo for you if you are worried about the fit ~ now to show you the gorgeous skin that is also at Designer Showcase again and wanted to also show off my Derby hat complete with roses…


wearing Clover by 7 Deadly s{K}ins

Gorgeous in “Dew” and wearing the brows that do come with the skin.  You really will have to come and try on a demo so you can just see how this looks with your head…Right now am getting soaked and those heels will never come clean if I don’t get out of the rain, so till next time stay dry and pass on a little bit of kindness ♥

Simply gorgeous…

As another blogger made the comment that it is nice to be called “gorgeous” and there are times that just putting on a gown or a dress or even lingerie that as you look into that mirror you tell yourself “simply gorgeous” ~ a lot of times I love to just glam myself out in here with taking time to find just the right hair that will compliment what am wearing and even put on the works with eyeshadow and lipstick ~ what is nice that most of us have a great variety of hair and like a good fairy godmother you can change in an instant ~ goes the same with lipsticks and makeup and truly love having my Catwa Head with their easy to use hud just makes it easy peasy at least once I got the hang of it *giggling* cuz it did take time and thanks to bestie for helping me along with the Catwa group when I would freak out thinking ut oh what did I do wrong again ~ I give them huge kudo’s for how knowledgeable they are as well as helpful always someone in the group or mods can help you with your issues ~ Today just was the day that I felt like truly glamming it up and with the help of a gorgeous gown “Addison” by JUMO I absolutely feel gorgeous ~


Wearing Addison gown by Jumo

The gown itself is stunning am just modeling it LOL but no really I do think possible that this is a time I will say hmmm yes I am gorgeous ~ this gown comes with not only with a hud that gives you a lot of great choices 25 of them to be exact but a gorgeous pair of earrings that truly are a compliment ~


Big Bold Earrings

You will have to excuse me for forgetting to take off my other earrings but even that does not deter the look that it gives you ~ big but not huge that they are overpowering yet they do make a statement ~ this gown is truly a timeless classic and with all those choices it is one that I will be keeping in my inventory ~ I did mention eye shadow that at times at not one to wear it in SL or RL unless it is for something special ~ guess I need to turn my face so you can see exactly the shadow that Dulce Secrets is offering this month at Designer Showcase…


Interstellar Eyeshadow by Dulce Secrets 

Gorgeous array of colors to really make those eyes just sparkle and pop and the creator has given the choice of either Catwa, Omega or Leutika ~ love when the creator gives those options for everyone ~ and there is a demo for you to try if you are unsure…The Addison Gown by Jumo and the Interstellar Eyeshadow by Dulce Secrets are exclusively at Designer Showcase till the end of the month ~ take my souped up TAXI to get you there so you can wander around, enjoy some cake and champagne ~ Now I gotta find hubby to take me dancing…hugzz to all ♥

Credits always goes out to my special friend Aisha Convair owner of Designer Showcase and congrats for 7 years along with the 2 Designers Jumo & Dulce Secrets that I am showing off here for giving me the opportunity ~ Was shot on location of Backdrop City using Image EssentialsGraceful Elegance” poses ~
