The Magic of Reading

I love books! Reading a book can be so magical; it can whisk me away to new places, even while I’m stuck at home. When I’m not in world, I do a lot of reading.

This wonderful Paper Magic pose prop set was on sale last weekend at Disorderly for 75L. The flying pose I got free at a past La Vie en Pose event. It isn’t too late to grab some free poses at the current La Vie en Pose, which is open until April 25, 2020. The gifts are quite generous!

Born to be Mild

I’m a total klutz in both worlds. Every time I try to fly or drive in SL, I run into things. But this scooter was too cute–and cheap– to pass up. And I can stand still and pose on it!

Hippy, Hippy, Hooray!

I finally took the plunge and got a Homestead. This will allow me to make my own backdrops, set land forms, textures, weather and more! I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time and today was the day!

Today’s post was inspired by the latest creation from my friend, Sylvi, of b[ELLE]. This top and bellbottoms set has a color change HUD for each section. The pants have the most GORGEOUS embroidery down one leg. You can see some in the photo, but I admit I didn’t quite do it justice with my classic cross-legged hippy pose.

  • Body — Maitreya
  • Skin– The Skinnery — Harper, sorbet
  • Hair — Elikatira — Juniper (Exclusives HUD)
  • Top/Bellbottoms — b[ELLE]. Side tie sweater and Bellbottom jeans. On SALE for 99L this coming weekend!!

  • Rug/Pillows —PPK — Arabian Style Tent
  • Hippy Van — Decor Cities — AS Hippie Van. I bought this on Marketplace 2-3 years ago, but couldn’t find the link.

  • Cooler — Junk Food — Cooler Red
  • Lighting — Daytime Shadows, Lumipro, Photoshop

Daisy, Daisy

I did an inventory search for “daisy” and came up with more than enough for a daisy themed outfit. I also included my bovine friend, Daisy, in the shot!

Yesterday’s Dress

The dress I wore yesterday to the real estate office is so attractive, I wanted to feature it. The fabric feels oh-so soft against my skin. The lace trim on the deep neckline and hem are just the right touch of femininity. The belt, shown here in brown, has a small color change HUD. Not too short or revealing, the dress is perfect for the office or a dinner date.

The dress is available at Decoy and comes in 16 colors. 200L each or 1200L for the fatpack.

I got this dress with a gift card from Decoy as a reward for filling out a survey.

Femme Fatale

I spent most of Friday and Saturday experimenting with the Genus head. I admit to a lot of frustration, as I was trying to achieve a specific “look”. I’m not quite there yet but I’ve made progress. I’ll do a full post on my thoughts and experiences later.

This was a quick, “on the fly” shot to send to a couple of friends. But it came out so well that I decided to use it on today’s post.

  • Skin — The Skinnery — Harper, Sorbet Shade. I got the head applier on sale at Collabor88.
  • Eyes — Avi-Glam. — Grace Eyes, No. 8
  • Hair — Magika — Love
  • Outfit — Brii Underground — Femme Fatale. This is a group gift from Brii’s Goth group. The group is 900L to join but you get your money back in three outfits–and there are tons to choose from!
  • Pose — This was a candid snap while moving on my AO. — Vista Animations, Esther. This came out so well I should do it more often. I felt like a real photographer!
  • Backrop — Shogun– Boho Neons – Blue
  • Location — Backdrop Cove
