Always nice…

Always nice to have a partner that puts up with your impatience, your moodiness and at times just being a total brat ~ yup and I have to admit that is me at times ~ am impatient, grumpy at times and yup will agree downright bratty ~ yet my sweet, sexy hubby Sten so loves me and me must since it is going on 3 years and he still keeps me around ~ anyway in my defense I did mention that wanted us to use Image Essentials latest pose “In Sync” that Kay Weston has made for Twe12ve event ~ and ok ok will say that yes I was running a tad behind trying to get it done so I might of been a teeniest bit rushing him ~ but like a trooper he is Sten changed into a nice suit and stood by while I fiddled with the getting the shot just how I wanted it to look ~ he always tries to distract me by pulling at my dress, or trying to tickle me as I move things in place ~ makes me smile and I think am glad he has a great sense of humor…This pose is one of 3 that is exclusive just for this event ~ if you are looking for a nice couples pose this is one I would suggest ~ but talk as they say is well you know so the proof is in the pics ~ RIGHT….see for yourself ~

This will definitely go over our fireplace and Sten was so patient that I knew that I needed one more close up shot for our Profile Picks too ~ that I think the one below is my fave…

In the arms…

Sometimes you do want to feel the arms of an Angel holding you ~ there is a quote that I like to share with you ~ “When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts.” by Mary Maker Eddy ~ yes I do believe in Angels and when I was pondering about this outfit I pulled out this gorgeous Rock Angel and everything for me just clicked into place ~ The outfit is by Prism that is available to purchase at Designer Showcase ~ the designer Journey has given some gorgeous colors to choose from the Seaside & Surfside collections ~ onto the images ~

DS12a

Wearing Prism Seaside Top with Surfside Jeans

The softness of the knitted texture with the pastel gives such a summery look that you could pair the top with a skirt if you choose or wear with the faded Surfside Jeans that Prism is also featuring this month ~ let me turn around to show you

DS12b

Bum view

Journey the creator has also carried on with the Paisley texture for the back pockets as well ~ nothing wrong with the fit for my Maitreya body either ~

ds12bb

Wearing the Seaside top in Driftwood with the SurfSide Jeans also in Driftwood

This is probably my favorite color in the tops as I lean towards that color in RL ~ I love the greys that works so well matching it with other colors like Pinks or the Paisley jeans that am wearing above ~ those are also Driftwood ~ As we are past the halfway I suggest you take this TAXI  so you can wander around, try on demo’s and just explore the outside area too of Designer Showcase ~ Usually I do not include songs but this just seemed appropriate for you to sit and listen too ~ one of my faves ~

From the movie “City of Angels” with Nicolas Cage ~ an excellent movie ~ older but powerful ~ get a chance to watch you won’t be disappointed  ~ till next time as Dena as another outfit from this months Showcase that she had ummm ok ok I won’t spoil it for you ~ giggling ~ Peace to all and remember life is too short to hate ~ hugzz♥

Credits ~ thanks goes to Kay from Image Essentials for the poses am using as they are also at Designer Showcase called “Choices” and to Journey from Prism for giving me the opportunity to show off her latest outfits ~ OMG I almost forgot HUGE HUGE kudo’s to Sepia Larnia for showing me how to stick that video in there ~ hugzz

Hey everyone i’m back and let me say before I let you see what i’m wearing is no you are not having a migraine attack there are spots in this photo lol not only on me but in the background too so don’t worry* laughing*

DS8a

Shoenique’s Sita Dress & Sandals

I am wearing a design by Shoenique called Sita that you can find at Designer Showcase… as you can see here this is very sexy with its plunging neckline and well placed chains to keep your assets in place ~ as Starr always tells me turn around so they can see the back of the outfit so that is just what i’m going to do …

DS8b

Bum view

This white lace version gives the dress a totally different perspective, feminine and flirty as these are two of the 4 choices plus you will find it’s a knockout price too..This is something to keep in the closet for those special occasions when you want to see someone’s jaw drop as you enter the room or that evening out with your loved one…

DS8c

Sita Sandals

The Sita sandals that Shoenique is showing for this round are very dainty with their eye-catching flowers to the foot and linked to the toe-post with a metal flower, they finish off this outfit and  come in 4 colors which gives you the option again to mix and match with any outfit ~ So grab the TAXI and make your way over to Designer Showcase and I will see you all again real soon Hugs Be safe Dena♥

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

Pretty in Pink…

Anything is possible when wearing pink along with adding a little bit of sparkle ~ I will say there is something magical about pink shades, well won’t say this is pink but more of the color salmon almost..What am I talking about it is this outstanding top and pant set called Inez that *Hilly Haalan *is showing at this month’s Designer Showcase ~ for those of you that are still not sure how long it is on til 31st of August…

PinkA

Wearing Inez by Hilly Haalan

I fell in love not only with the softness this portrays but with its overall look -don’t you just love it? Almost like those memories of candy-floss on sticks, strawberry flavored lipsticks ~ makes me think of places like St Tropez mingling with the stars as they stroll along the beach, or some high end model on a day out to meet friends for lunch…Decided to take myself off to the French Riviera to look around and see if I could spot any famous stars out on their walks…

Pinkc

Its tight fitting pants with the stripe to the side that make your legs look longer along with the slight flare to cover the shoes this is a very high-end outfit ..And OMG you will be blown away with the price that Hilly Haalan has them for….

Pinkb

Glasses & Necklace also included 

The off the shoulder sweater that fits like a glove is enhanced by the ribbed turn-down to the bust area giving this the added interest to draw your eyes… Hilly has also added the necklace for just that bit of pizazz,that draws you eyes back up the body so then you will also notice the adorable sunglasses with their dusting of pretty pink and white flower to keep that sun away from your eyes while taking in the sights ~Could not go home without some French bread and pastries

Pinkd
While I am waiting to be served you need to see the cute little clutch and shoes that are included with this outfit.. I’m off home now to make some coffee to go with my tasty treats,will see you all again real soon..Be Safe Dena♥

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 ♥
