The latest creation by b[ELLE] made me think of summer candy — the candy necklaces, dots stuck on paper and strips of sugary gel.
The Sweethearts Dress comes with a HUD and all of the patterns are unique and fun. I had a hard time choosing my favorite, but the 3D look on the hearts print really stands out.
I love wild, untamed beaches. They remind me of childhood vacations in New England. I’ve been creating a wild beach on my Homestead. It’s my happy place.

When I get invited to a party, I’m usually off in the corner observing the festivities. Yes, I’m an introvert and proud of it!

This photo shoot started with an
hunt item from Lunar Seasonal Designs. The prize was a lovely goldfish bowl, which I was able to enlarge and swim inside. This rock is perfect for lounging and the goldfish and I are having a lovely visit. I’m sure it gets lonely swimming around and around by himself. Around the Grid in 80 Days

“We should indeed keep calm in the face of difference, and live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder at the diversity of humanity.”
I got an invitation to a party. The dress code said “Rainbow”.
Initally, I was a bit taken aback. I have very little in my wardrobe that is rainbow hued. I’ve been a bit afraid to wear rainbows, as I am straight. To me, it felt like appropriating the dress of another culture without permission.
But tonight, I was asked to be a rainbow. And I thought hard about what that means to me. It means standing up for what is right. It means supporting my LGBTQ friends. It means standing in the light of the rainbow, arm in arm with those I love in both worlds. It means I KNOW that diversity is what makes the world a better place to live in, and speaking out about my beliefs is the right thing to do.

I opened one of the group gifts from Foxcity and found a pineapple backdrop. That prompted me to dig through my inventory to see how many fruit themed wearables I could come up with. The result made me giggle.

Head — Lelutka — Chloe Skin — 7 Deadly S[k]ins — Moreya Omega Face & Body applier — Pineapple tone. ( Past midnight mania board gift) Hair — Exile — Liaison “Wild Fusion”.

Necklace — Fortuna — Pendant summer cherry. This was a gimme gacha free gift. Hair Piece — Concrete Flowers — Fruit Salad Tree Branches. This was from a Crazy Hair hunt MANY years ago.

Chair — Lacrime dell’Anima — Tropical chair, fruits set. Past Redeux group gift. Lighting –Believe it or not most of the lighting effects in this shot were done using Windlight settings and Lumipro. The fruit salad plate, of course, was added in Photoshop 🙂
