Those Mad Girls of F*cking Ninjas have released this amazing prop and pose set aptly called, Temptation. The poses are incredibly fluid and I love the curvaceousness of the female pose in the tree. This story is a darkened version of a tale that has been told throughout centuries of a temptation that was taken which has forever darkened the soul. A betrayal that burns so deep it seems to affect all of mankind and each tear shed in remembrance of the forbidden act rips one from believing there is anything good left in humanity. A jolt of reality… a broken heart… a mass of shadowy torment lay in the wake….and a smug sprite that continues with destructive and manipulative ways…. selfishly gloating….self absorbed…lost in ego… we are only human after all.

Good (Adam & Eve) by Matthew West and Leigh Nash from Sixpence None The Richer

Can you hear us cry… wishing we could turn back time?

If I could, I’d rewrite history

I’d choose differently; if I could, I would

I’d leave out the part where I broke your heart

in the garden’s shade, fix the mess I made

If I could, I would

Waking Minerva

The Arcade Photography Contest - Duchess Flux

β€œWaking Minerva” takes us to ancient Rome and into the vast heavens that house the gods and goddesses. Unicorns greet each day with a rainbow and carefully awake the sleeping Minerva to bring forth knowledge to the masses and spawn creativity among the artists.

I created the image for the Arcade Gacha Photography Contest ….. It didn’t really come out how I intended… but what really ever does πŸ˜› I wanted more strength coming from the unicorn and looking at it now I should have possibly added fog to bring it all together and activate it more. I challenge myself to not use any sort of photo manipulation during processing…. so everything you see in most of my images is exactly what I see in Second Life….such a purist. Maybe I will try this one again since I like the theme and adore this new pose by elephante poses!

Edited to Add ~Β  Take Two: Changed the image to one with fog… πŸ™‚

The Intoxicated Pirates of the Not So Caribbean

Pirate Duchess

The vast ocean called and we hit the sea and headed off to the place where our hearts longed to be… white sand, rum and music filled breezes. Intoxicating! Jacques Cousteau was dead on when he said, β€œthe sea…. once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” Ah the pirates life for me!

A woman knows the face of the man she loves as a sailor knows the open sea.

On a recent trip to Cog & Grog Freebies, an entire shop filled with all the pirate loot you could fathom, I got a little carried away and ended up with a fleet of the most beautiful pirate ships! Cog and Grog shares all the creations used for the construction of Freeport Township of Flotsam at this tiny shop. The items are full perm, free and fun! Thanks Aley, Arcadia and Briony! If you happen to plunder their wares be sure to give some love to the tip jar!

My pirate treasures became my inspiration for the β€œ50 Shades of Sexy” challenge this week with a very appropriate theme of β€œIntoxicate Me.” Not all treasure is silver and gold….. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!!


Not just the Spanish Main, love. The entire ocean. The entire wo’ld. Wherever we want to go, we’ll go. That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails,

that’s what a ship needs but what a ship is… what it is… is freedom.Β

Blacklace’s new lingerie set, Rousing, was the perfect attire for my intoxicatingly sexy self. The chocolate color gave a sense of time that I offset with an adorable vintage necklace from League that actually works! In keeping with my Cog & Grog mindset I chose a pair of Victorian granny heeled shoes from Grim Bros. (Any excuse to shop at Grim is a good excuse!) And topping it all off is hair by D!va that is absolutely perfect in every way (and free!!! wth!) Marisa is quickly becoming one of my favorite SL hair designers of all times!

Arrr Mateys! Until we meet again!!! Happy Shopping!
