Latex Baby…

LatexBaby

Are you a lover of latex and looking for a really good latex outfit ~ TO.KISKI has a really cute jumpsuit that you see me wearing at Designer Showcase this month ~ I really like how this one part jumpsuit is constructed ~ the bottom half is very sleek and body-hugging and the top with its unique style makes this a fave of mine ~ the designer/creator has several variations of this jumpsuit and not all are 100% latex, which gives you both worlds ~ what I also want to show you is a closeup of the necklace by Moondance Boutique & the sporty sunglasses by Haysuriza that will be at Designer Showcase too♥

Nails by Cazimi, Sunglasses by Haysuriza and Necklace by Moondance

One thing I have noticed is the various lens effects you can get by touching the lens from total dark all the way to clear ~ those nails are in various versions of plain and glitter with my fave shade of purple being one of the colors ~ the necklace Sienna by Moondance you will notice all the different ways to change up the gem colors, metal colors keeping it fresh and very trendy ~ Designer Showcase opens its doors tomorrow and each of you, when you go, will have such a great variety of Designers with their exclusive items that I must remind you to remember to try on DEMOS ~ am having so much fun opening the boxes♥♥

Boxes…

Boxes
baggage and stuff

one of my favorite bloggers Sadystika Sabretooth did a blog the other day that gave me the idea for this blog ~ and yes in all those boxes I have packed away most of my emotional baggage.  no one escapes having baggage, it is what you do with it that makes a difference guess that is why am holding the violin.  those in the know will know what the violin represents *wink* ~ and while I look at all those boxes just piling up am realizing yeah I got quite a bit.  if I unpacked them they would overfill this room up and more yet they are sealed tight with packing tape.  it has taken me a long time to realize I do not need to open most of those boxes part of just growing.  thanks again Sady and if you would like to check out the blog post am talking about click HERE  Remember a little kindness to yourself and others goes a long way ♥♥

AFK…

ReadingA
couple more pages left 

I am almost finished and some of the words still haunt me ~ finished with what you ask ~ oooh well if you can read the cover “AFK by Huckleberry Hax” a RL book about this  character Definitely Thursday who is a detective in SL ~ yes I said a real life book that is completely immersed within Second Life.  Do you love to read books that grab you from the very beginning have all the twists and turns, hold onto you till the very last page then you must check this book out ~ at first I was not sure as I looked on Amazon to find out more since this was mentioned on someone else’s blog ~I read the reviews, saw the price was more than affordable for 5 books~ the author Huckleberry Hax who is a real SL resident started writing these series of RL books starting around 2007 up to the present.  Since am a such a huge reader of books am like why not and woah a lot of things that take place in this book truly gave me food for thought.  Like could it truly happen, which who knows with the possibility of anything possible in Second Life.  Is it a mystery ummm semi, does it have romance in it yes, and yes there are some sexual parts in it as well as RL CRIMES…honestly I could not stop reading this book ~ Huckleberry Hax imagination is off the charts even for SL or is this author retelling a RL event that started in SL ~ you just never know and not sure I want to …Here is the LINK for you to seriously check this book out on Amazon ~ Read the reviews, take a sample and for me I bet you will enjoy it especially if you one of the older residents. I will note that the link is for those that have Kindle, you might wanna research it for other formats and there is the paperback version. Good luck ♥

Credits ~ first go to my friend Brutus who helped me with a couple of the props and was gracious enough to let me use his woods ~ thank you also to the author Huckleberry Hax who wrote this really interesting and fantastic book ~

its okay…

Its okay
it is okay…

Yes it is okay to have a bad day but for me when I do I absolutely know that my friends in SL are here for me ~ that is why I love SL still after 9 years because of all the friendships I have made ~ seeing some that maybe we have no spoke for weeks but they peek inside your IM box and tada you get talking like it was just yesterday with your so so mood starting to turn and you find yourself smiling ~ or another person IM’s you asking are ya busy wanna come check this out and poof you feel yourself being immersed and all the moodiness has disappeared ~ yes RL is still there but you don’t feel as bad as you did before…friends stand by and let you ramble, vent or grab you by your hand and just keep you busy without even realizing they are helping you…so yes it is always ok to have a bad day but friends truly do help when that happens if you let them ♥ Now have to give you a closer look at 7 deadly’s s{K}ins newest skin Lindy ~ it is stunning and was made specifically for the AK head, which I do not have so you will see it as on the Catya that just truly love this head ~ still this skin is absolutely becoming a fave of mine…

LindyC
Lindy browless in Pineapple

Yes am wearing it browless as I do favor my brows from Lurid from time to time ~ as I said above this is truly a fave of mine ~ for those that do have the AK Head I suggest you run not walk to 7 Deadly s{K}ins and grab the demo at least ~ I think you will not be disappointed and for all the others also try out the demo first to see how it looks on your…for me am loving it ♥  Till next time please show a little kindness to a stranger maybe just saying hello ~

NoWhere…

Road to nowhere
Am NoWhere

“The road to anywhere is the road to nowhere
And the road to nowhere leads to dreams sacrificed,opportunities squandered life unfulfilled In our journey we will encounter many forks and turnings in the road” by Thomas S. Monson

Let me tell you how I got into this mess on the road, the coach/bus took a nosedive when taking a bend in the road too fast and got stuck in this huge sand dune, then the driver told us we would all have to leave the bus, Im like whaaat!! Where are we? He told us there was a bus stop further along the road plus we would not have to wait too long as he would radio in the situation ~Heat is blistering as we started to walk along the road, the sun hurts my eyes even with my hat on, this sign in the above image is so appropriate lol cannot stand here too long though or I will fry to a crisp, knew I should have packed more water but you don’t expect to crash do you? I can see the stop up ahead as I better make a move or might miss the next ride ~ sure you wouldn’t want to see a Crispy Dena on the next post….or do you? Laughs and walks faster ~ Till next time Hugs ~ Dena♥♥
