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 ♥

Warrior strong…

 

Am a warrior

am a warrior

what is a warrior?  is it someone who is this muscle-bound male that is portrayed all brawn no brain.  maybe years ago that could be the case.  today’s world I think there are so many female warriors who have overcome obstacles, events and succeeded.  a warrior might be thought of arrogant and uncaring yet that is far from the truth. The Urban dictionary definition is “Often intelligent, strong, determined, and skillful, a Warrior, despite whatever problems they may have, is perfect. In their own way, each Warrior is perfect.” I owe so much to my Dad who taught me to have spirit, never give up, have good work ethics, and also to be grateful for what I have in my life. He truly inspired me to become a warrior and I thank him.  in today’s world females need to be warriors in their own right.  I found this perfect quote to leave you with

She has a quiet confidence that screams loud, She is humble but strong
she is stable but rebellious. she is giving but not naive.
she chooses her battles wisely. she’ll stay silent
until it’s time to fight and when that time comes,
she will fight and she will win. Jordan Sara Weatherhead

Dirt roads…

DirtRoad

on a dirt road we are not travelers but become explorers ~ a dirt road is meant to slow down, listen, and look. there is something about a dirt road that I just love.  feeling like a country girl with my bare feet, overalls and no makeup…you cannot help but smell the fresh pines and see the flowers in bloom.  bear and I enjoy being out in nature ♥ before I say till next time wanted to give a huge THANK YOU to Dani Graphelle for giving me a huge tip about embedding pics so I don’t use all my image space on WordPress…till next time please remember to be kind to yourself first then to others. ♥♥

thinking

enjoying the day with Scatter & Scamper

sitting here just thinking about people in SL and how generous they truly are.  lately, I have been taking some online graphics tutorials to learn how to bump up my images more especially since I subscribe to them I should at least take time to learn.  if you are wanting to there are some really nice manipulation ones like the one I did from Rikard Rodin who collaborates with Kelvin Designs.  the tutorial said 2 hours to watch and possibly to complete, yet it took me over 4 hours *giggling* not that my knowledge of photoshop is at a beginners level I was pleasantly surprised at all I did learn from this.   not to veer off topic but I did want to incorporate pics from here and needed just the right pose.  yes, there are gobs of poses out there yet I needed a very specific one and to be honest am not a master of using Animare to create one.  finally, I broke down and asked in several groups that I belong to and Ni Avril owner/creator of Lyrium sent me an image that was absolutely perfect.  oooh, not only the pic but out of the kindness of her heart sent me the folder of the whole series.  I was touched by her generosity as I was getting ready to purchase which ones I thought would work, instead, I looked at her Marketplace and bought even more for future uses.  btw the final image that I created with the help of this tutorial “Fairy Specimen” you can see my results on Flickr.  you hear about the drama and the horror stories but you never hear about the good people and all the kindness that is in SL.  if you know of any good deeds please let me know it is always so nice to give shout-outs to those that help without asking for anything in return.  Again I do thank Ni Avril for her kindness as the pose was perfect…hugzz to her, to my readers who truly make my day with the comments and the following.  remember a little kindness truly does go a long way ♥♥

Ready for…

Royal

Royal Guest attire

oh yes, am so ready for the royal wedding that takes place tomorrow.  took me so long to find just the right outfit to wear so I did not look out of place or not following the strict dress code they have.  what truly makes this outfit perfect is the dress was on the Fifty Linden list today and snagged this goodie for 50L ~ YES honestly and it is from {Junbug}~ now the fascinator (hat) came from Marketplace only 50L too along with the shoes from Phedora that was a 50L special as well.  do I look like one of the royal wedding guests? I also learned that you must take off any head adornments/fascinators for the night and replace with a tiara.

Royal1

wearing my [silhoutte summer]fascinator 

really love the beadwork on this gown along with the fascinator this truly make a stunning portrait that will keep to remind me of the royal wedding of Meghan and Prince Harry ~ now those that are joining me to watch if you are in the USA it will be an early one am setting my alarm for 430a so I do not miss a moment.  there will be no maid of honor as she has chosen children to accompany her.  from the flowers to the procession and onto the reception this will be a wedding of so many memories.  Last Royal wedding I remember getting up early was Princess Diana.  now I must carefully take this off and preserve it for tomorrow just wanted you to get a sneak preview of what I will be wearing ~ toodles till next time ♥♥

Zorro & me…

Horse

riding at Calas/Glanduin

Gorgeous spring day to go riding at one of my favorite Sims, which is Calas ~ I could rave about this place every single day because the work/details that Ty & Truck put into Calas truly is fantastic.  Yes, am prejudiced as am a huge Calas fan since I found it over 7 years ago.  Zorro is a Water Horse that I do not think they could get any more real.  Along with being able to change his look from mane to tail.  You really need to check out the Demo’s at Water Horse and decide for yourself.  Over at Calas, you are able to ride, walk or bike around all the different sims.  We stopped to just smell the flowers and enjoy the view as the Cherry Blossoms are plentiful and gorgeous.  Speaking of gorgeous is the skin Persia from 7 Deadly s[K]ins that am wearing and yes will give you a closer look ♥

Closeup1

wearing Persia Browless Freckled in Apricot

Not adding any xtra makeup so you could really see how gorgeous Persia is ~ Izara does such a great job with the freckles and reminds me when I was much much younger and having freckles across my nose.  Today is the last day for the Cosmetic Fair where Persia is still available till brought into the Main store.  Rides will be below ~ oh and if you are not a group member of 7 Deadly s{K}ins you still have today to join for free.  Always a lot of goodies and specials for group members.  Till next time show a little kindness ♥♥
