The essence of woman

There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful,
than a woman being unapologetically herself;
comfortable in her perfect imperfection, to me,
that is the true essence of beauty
.

Wild mountain hideout

Good morning.  Reality always hits when you have to get up for work and you really need at least another hour of sleep.  Today I’m featuring a new release by Trompe Loeil, which I placed a description just below credits.  Not shown in this picture, is a built-in kitchen, with animations for those looking for a role-play experience.  I’m also featuring new rocks by Pandemonium.  They are a cluster of rocks that have 5 different base  textures.  For my picture I supersized some of the rocks, which does affect land impact.

Have a great start to the week. ♥

The Daley Modern Farmhouse features a welcoming wraparound concrete patio, elevated with three stairways for access. Enter the living room through several sets of glass double doors and take in the focal point: an oversized combination fireplace and waterfall fountain, set against a slab of natural stone! On the reverse side, firewood inset into the chimney structure makes for an eye-catching display. Take a stroll into the built-in kitchen with working sink and sink animations, and check out the three private rooms (one in the kitchen area and two upstairs). Grab the matching Snow Add-On and get cozy through the rest of the winter! Footprint is approximately 30 meters by 26 meters.

Music, dogs and pizza

Good morning!  Today happens to be my rezz day.  It’s hard to imagine, that I’ve been socializing in second life for 9 years.  Though it’s been more than socializing.  It’s been a platform to indulge in my creativity, to learn aspects of myself through periods of isolation and through relationships.  I have met several people that I consider good friends.  I started this blog and have connected with bloggers from all over the world.  There is so much more, but I only have so much time.  So yeah, I’m thankful for my 9 years in Second Life.

Today I’m showcasing lots of wonderful items, so take a look at all.  You won’t be disappointed.

Enjoy ♥

Making the naughty list

Good morning.  A new round of Epiphany opened in the last few hours and there is a bunch goodies to be found.  I’m just showing a few in this post and also a previous release by Loft & Aria, which can now be found at the main store.  The Augustine chairs are an addition to the existing set.  They are texture change for upholstery as well as the finish.  You also get a couple of choices for the lamp shade.  The sofa is part of the set, previously shown.  The snowflake pillows are an advent gift, but I thought they went well with the mood in the picture.

Enjoy.

Warm blankets to keep the chill out

Good morning. Wishing all of you a fantastic week.  Today I’m showcasing another new release by Nutmeg currently at Shiny Shabby.  The wardrobes are stacked with warm blankets for the winter so you definitely need one of these in your home.  The wreath is a bonus.

Fance Decor released a buffet with decor set at Collaborr88.  The pitcher and bowl is my favorite of this set, as it reminds me of one my grandmother had years ago.
