Mother's Day Shopping

Hi Everyone! I just got back from grocery shopping at Le Bistro where I picked up all the ingredients to make my mom the most awesome Mother’s Day gift! Well okay, I actually mailed my mother chocolate covered drizzled gourmet strawberries (because she truly is the greatest mom eva!) … but stick with me here……

Mother's Day Mixing

Baking on Second Life is a snap with Le Bistro! I chose these cake pops since they are a mom favorite and look stunning! There is nothing better than making a gift that looks as if it came from a gourmet shop! First of all the ingredients are already added to the bowl, so there is no mess and no fuss (Unlike past cooking disasters πŸ˜› )! A few clicks and you are mixing your little heart out… you can actually see the batter form! Another click pours the batter in the pan and off to your pixel oven!

Mother's Day OvenThis is my favorite part of cooking. That perfect moment when the room fills with the aroma of sweet cake. Ah breath it in…. no calories… so breath deep!Β  Smell-o-vision would be good at this point… hmm an aroma hud!

Mother's Day Cake On A Stick

After the cake cools you simply roll out the sheet and with a few more clicks apply the icing and cover them with decorations! Oh la la… almost better than Barbie and your Easy Bake Oven!

Happy Mother’s Day

Dinner Party Kitchen

After a long exhausting day of gardening and installing the awesome sauce kitchen in the new house, Sassy and I grabbed Gopu’s bottle of wine and hit the kitchen and …. well… the bottle. Sassy began making her famous fried chicken while I played bartender in my sweet little dress by FireBird Designs courtesy of this round of Pre-Release! The knife wielding Sassy is wearing new lingerie from Death Rocker Betty Crocker (how appropriate!) that is also available at Pre-Release. I spent most of the night clicking on all the interactive counters, dishes, food, utensils and poses… our sim is coming right along…. and I am loving my sweet kitchen!!

Dancing with David

Dancing with David

Welcome to my fae realm. A world where you float effortlessly hanging on a cherished poem and time has no hold on life. Soft footsteps tread the warm soil and the forest is a musical celebration of buzzing wings and playful fae. Where only beauty is found in nature and the earth is alive with effervescent glowing lights. A place where life begins and ends, only to begin anew. A universe where my brother still dances and I can hear his contagious laugh.

Fantasy Faire is winding down and I can’t help but wonder why the festivities are packed into a short week. I have always been bad with β€œgood-byes” and the last one to leave the party so this feeling is not unusual for me…. There is still the weekend and plenty more events scheduled for us to participate. On a better note, the Faire has raised over 5 million lindens for Relay for Life!!!! I have a load more poses from F*cking Ninjas (Fantasy Fair) and elephante poses (Pre-Release) so there is sure to be more shenanigans at play!

Conjure the Magic! Finish the Fight!

Images Dedicated to David. My Heart. My Smile. My Soul. Namaste.

Xxxooo

Memories of Earth Day 2013

April 23, 2013 at 5:29 pm (Holiday Posts, Pre-Release Event) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Earth Day 2013

We spent Earth Day in the beautiful mountains and then came home and celebrated with our Second Life friends and Pre-Release!!! I found this poem while on a wooded trail and wanted to share it here. Hope you had a great Earth Day!

xxxooo

Earth Day

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.

Ring!

I was so excited when League announced the release of the hand and feet textures for Slink products. I raced to the phone to share my excitement with friends! Finally the end to the tedious β€œcontrol freak” skin matching events! You can now perfectly match your League skin to your hands and feet with a newly developed system from Slink. You simply wear the Hud and click – like magic your hands match the skin you are wearing! smitten kitten!
Love Your Mother

If you purchased your Slink hands and feet before April 5, 2013 you will need to head to Slink and use the redelivery terminal to get an updated set in order for the HUD to work. For some reason my feet did not appear in the terminal, but thankfully my hands were there (If this happens to you send a notecard to Siddean Munro and she will send you the update, same with transactions made on marketplace )
Call Me Maybe

While at League be sure to grab the free french manicure applier. The Slink system has fingernail and glove appliers as well as stockings and toenails! I am stoked! To see if your skin designer has developed textures you can check the Slink Website. If you don’t see your skin designer listed be sure to contact them and send them to this page.

The poses in the above photos are from elephante poses, one of the best posing shops on grid! The beautiful fan ring is by the incredibly talented Pheobe and the darling charm bracelet (I adore this bracelet) is from Pomposity; both are available for a limited time at this round of Pre-Release! The theme of this round is aptly called β€œEarth” and FiEND created the awesome mesh T-Shirt for the event! Get yours today!

Happy Shopping!

Cherry on Top

April 15, 2013 at 5:26 pm (FaMESHed, iheartslFeed, Pre-Release Event, Second Life Events) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Original Cherry

Today I bring you all things cherry prompted by the super fabulous Lucinda Dress, a new product byΒ DeathRocker Bettie Crocker that was created for the 9th Pre-Release Event which opened on Sunday. It also gave me a reason to throw on a pair of Chandra’s latest creation from her Pin-Up collection, these awesomely hot, super swank Peggy Sue Pin-Up boots from deviousMind! (to die for cute!!!) One can never have too many cherries!

Cherry On Top

The stark background of the original image, although extremely cool with some hand drawn details, seemed to beg for some overlays and textures. So with a heavy and non-experienced hand I began to manipulate the images. I now see why so many bloggers photoshop elements into their pictures – it is quite fun. I love how the image appears more painterly, however I have a long way to go to get this technique perfected. I added my first attempts here so I can watch my images progress…. hopefully in a good direction. LOL

Cherry Pie

I adore the effortlessness of DeePosed poses. It is easy to see why Dee’s poses are used by so many photographers as they lend a smooth and gestural element to images. In this image the pose elevates the hipness of the outfit and adds a flair of fun. Boom Chicka Boom Wow Wow.

Crumpled

Duchess laid motionless on the edge of the surf following a brutal marathon swim that ended at the land of Loki. She felt a presence but was too washed-out to care and again the world went dark.

You Found Me

Gentle arms encircled her body and she was slowly lifted out of the water. A soothing voice entranced her and she awoke in the arms of her hero.

To Be Continued…

The poses in the above story use the first set in a series of poses by elephante poses from the new Storybook Pose Collection. There will be 10 items total per chapter and the above pose, You Found Me, is part of Chapter One and is currently on sale at the Pre-Release event this round! I can’t wait to see where and how my story unfolds! Stay Tuned!
