wondering

back from my first dog sitting job and wondering how my body could feel so bad.  oh, the dog was a joy to walk and sit just while I was there got a case of food poisoning that almost got so bad I was wanting to go to the hospital.  I will not go into all the yucky details just saying like when you cough, cough, and cough your muscles react making the next day you feel as if you have been beaten with fists if you get what am saying.  as I chuckle it is not the best way to lose a couple of pounds.  throwing up it is not high on my list at all…what was nice was that I spent a lot of time just relaxing, reading and walking.  not sure if any of you read books if you do Jody Picoult “The Storyteller” is a fantastic book ~ very thought-provoking and I wondered what would I have done.  as always my good friend Kay Weston owner/creator of Image Essentials created a new pose series called Eye Candy that is available exclusively at Ebento till the end of the month…another gorgeous skin by 7 Deadly s[K]ins that yes close up is below.

close up

this time I chose the Browless Butter tone to show how gorgeous this is ~ Muriel is exclusively available at The Vintage Fair till the 24th ~ as always there are 2 sets lights & darks for you to choose ~ Rides will be below ~ remember a little kindness goes a long way especially to yourselves ♥♥

there are so many great places to explore, photograph that I was missing out on just using Backdrop City ~ oh I love all the backdrops but SL truly is about exploring ~ one of the reasons that kept me coming back over and over was all the creativity so for me I needed to get back to that and chose for today “Daily Grind” and I will take liberty and copy/paste to you what it says ” a premier destination for both artists and patrons of the arts. A land brimming with hidden places to explore & magic to experience! rides,
bikes, friends, cuddles, romance snow galleries, music, art”  and yes am showing off Jumo’s dress “Ricci” that is only at Designer Showcase this month.  did you notice the carousel is missing horses and seats, which kind of appeals to me a little on the unusual side but as I look around the place has a lot of unique and unusual items that will come back just to look, explore and take some pics.  this dress is gorgeous with the material of silk and lace and that very high slit going up to the hip.  creator gives you a Hud with solids and prints still keeping that lace all for a very reasonable price ♥ ooh not only that comes with those statement-making earrings that you just need to get a close-up…

wearing Bali by 7 Deadly s[K]ins
those earrings are truly a show stopper that deserves short hair or hair that you can give them the attention they warrant.  I am letting you see another new skin “Bali” that is at 7 Deadly s[K]ins in Apricot ~ this time I chose the browless so I could wear my favorite brows by Lurid that sadly is only on Marketplace now, which I will provide the link for you.  that’s it for the moment as I need to change and get ready for my first job as a dog walker in RL…will be back later ~ please be kind to yourself and others ♥

Midnight Monthly Madness

yes, it is that time again for the Midnight Monthly Madness where you get nakey *hehe* put on a whole body alpha, become invisible and hit the MM boards to grab some fantastic gifts ~ like this gorgeous gown from S&P that I even had to break down and get the add-on hud.  for those not in the know of what MMM is all about let me give you the LINK to read about.  This event is crazy and for the most part I have to admit pretty drama free ~ umm I did say for the most part cuz you know there is gonna always be a couple that cannot follow rules come dressed to the nines and complain why they have to wait to get into a store *laughing* The designers that are part of this event work so hard to really give some great FREE gifts.  Yes, did I mention that this is all free no cost to join the group or any of the gifts.

MMJc
Samara Shoes by Amacci

even a gorgeous pair of heels by Amacci to finish the outfit off that is also a part of MMM~ see what you are missing out by not being a part of this ~ who does not like quality items that are free ~ now will let you in a little tiny secret there is a “last chance” to get all of the items from the Midnight & Noon boards beginning tomorrow at noon SLT with one little catch they are not free but at a huge discounted price mostly in the 50L range ~ still that is a bargain ~ don’t forget to join the Midnight Monthly Madness group so you can keep up on the latest news ♥♥

Kudos to the following designers for all their great gifts this month ~ Amacci, [Glitzz], Kei, Faida, ~also known~, Elle Boutique, *LX*, Essenz, Meva, MONS, {moss&mink}, !PCP, and S&P.  Thank you♥♥ oooh yes and a huge thank you to Cayenne Republic for all she does for the group.

Loneliness…

Lonliness
“Loneliness adds beauty to life,
It puts a special burn on a sunset,
And makes night air smell better…”

This is a quote I came across while scanning the Internet and just wanted to share it with you as I think it speaks volumes to us all..We can be in a crowded room and still feel very alone..It makes you just want to reach out someone you might know and tell them that they are not as alone as they may feel, they can reach out to you and you will be there for them even if they are over seas, we have the ability now to use Facebook, Facetime, Skype or even just the Phone to just say a few words to let them know your thinking about them~I don’t mean to get heavy just wanted to make you aware that it happens and a lot of people here in Second Life feel it too~Make a positive effort and make that call~This Is Dena calling out to all of you out there to say hello to someone new today here in SL you never know they might become a new friend..Thank you for reading
Hugs Dena ♥♥

Stand out…

Sometimes you just want to stand out and what better way to do that than in this bra and pantie applier from *SUKI* called LUCA then adding stand out jewelry like these gorgeous pieces from *Chop-Zuey* called Heaven & Earth adding a little make -up so the pieces speak for themselves then topping it off with a killer pair of heels like this pair from * OH PAIR!* named KYLIE to make your legs look beautiful….
All of the items I have mentioned are being show at *Designer Showcase* in this round and is on until the 30th of October,but let me show you a close up of each of the wonderful Items and you can see for yourself the detailing that has gone into each piece yourselves…

DS7e
Heaven & Earth by Chop Zuey

The Earrings& Necklace set from *Chop-Zuey* as you would expect is done to the highest quality and has 2 different sets one with a fringe as seen here on the necklace or without as seen on the earrings giving the a very unique look and you will also be pleased to know they can be re-sized, just outstanding pieces as always from Belle..

DS7f
The applier for the bra and pantie set from *Suki* comes in 5 color options including the black you see me showing you here also appliers for Slink,Belleza,TMP and Maitreya that I am wearing,appliers are great for keeping if you need something under your dresses and don’t want them to show through.. and just look at the detailing in the back view of this set.. a real treat to show off your underwear now and then don’t you think..

DS7g
I am loving these boots from *Oh Pair!* they come with a very full hud to customize and accessorize any of your outfits it also gives you the option of course change the color of every part of the boot the only thing you may find is which color to choose to go with when you go out on a date lol ..

DS7d
Think I had better make a move as looks like the I may have thrown a green sock in with the washing ..laughs Oh! Well a Witches work is never done….
You will find these and many more things to look at when you take my ..Super Broom .. and fly to Designer showcase..Have Fun Shopping people…As this will be my last fashion blog just would like to say thanks till we meet again be safe and hugs to all of you out there that have taken the time to read and comment… Thank you to Aisha for giving me the opportunity to do the posts and each and every one of the designer too…Dena♥♥

Fright night…

There I was walking home wearing my latest outfit from KIB *Belen*which by the way comes comes in two versions, after a night out at the cinema and my friend said shall we walk home through the graveyard, I gulped and said ‘What?’ she replied come on’ scaredy cat’ ‘its quicker’ needless to say off we went.Well she is a fast walker and I got a little lost as she weaved in and out of the grave stones

DS4d
Wearing KIB Belen 

..thought I heard her calling to me from behind a crypt so I went to tell her to behave as I did not like it here after all we had just watched a creepy horror film ….As I approached the voice got louder calling my name I got to the opening and was struck by this heavy feeling ,then I could not move my hands they got stuck on the way up to my mouth in fear,

DS4a

The voice tells me to walk go to the edge of the cliff, I have no choice but to do its bidding as it has me under its spell I feel myself edging forwards close and closer to falling over my brain is trying to shake me into waking ~

DS4b
Nita Boots by Lindy 

Just as I think I am going over the voice in my head stops, I stumble back from the edge gasping for breath.. feeling something is still after me I hide behind some bushes catching my breath as I see what I think is a witch flying on a broom stick out of the corner of my eye..

DS4e
Just then I hear my friend calling to me is it really her this time or am I still imagining things?….I don’t think I will be coming home again through any-more grave yards any time soon…Here is your BROOM if you need a ride to Designer Showcase to grab the outfit from KIB & the gorgeous boots from Lindy Shoes as well ~ giving you a  ‘Scary laugh’ Be safe out there Till next time Dena ♥

Halfway…

Technically halfway through the month is on the 15th but who am I ever to be technical…well except for correct spelling as it is a pet peeve of mine and my brain goes crazy when I see people either being super lazy not looking up a word or just spelling it how it sounds to them ~ think that is called spelling it phonetically ~ yes I know slang but even that some mess that up instead of what’s up it is shortened to sup then those that only hear the z will write zup ~ am like huh? So yes it is a quirk, or pet peeve or whatever you wanna label it ~ getting back to why halfway is important is that if you are still looking for a very nice trendy outfit that will fit in at clubs, events or just casual this outfit by Evolve called Abianne is only at Designer Showcase for 15 more days ~ and I really love the design of this ~

MagicM1b
Wearing Abianne by Evolve

Looking chic and very fashion trendy with the one arm sleeveless I just chose a very rich Purple color ~ this is 2 separate pieces that each have their own Hud ~ and each color is very rich and royal looking ~ actually for me it looks something that you would see come strutting down a runway ~ to accessorize I had to choose Chop Zuey‘s item “Shadow of Iris” a really well done, with very detailed choker and earrings ~

MagicM1a
Shadow of Iris by Chop Zuey 

Per her very high standards that Belle applies to all her work this is another keeper for me ~ if you look at the gems surrounding the skull they can be changed to fit your mood ~ there is also 3 different sets of earrings you may choose from ~ love the look of this as it sits nicely on my neck ~ and you can also see that I am wearing Amaria Skin Head Applier by Avada that is also one of the Designers at the Showcase this month ~ 10 skin tones with each one comes a shape ~ remember to try a demo as at times your shape may produce a different and unique look ~

MagicM1c
Closer look 

If you can see the nice draw string on the pants is another cute detail that I like and because they are separates you are able to mix match with others getting more bang for your lindens ~ I can see the top with a nice long black skirt making it very uber formal and also the pants matched with just a simple tank top that will bring that look to something on a casual Sunday morning ~ please take my TAXI to Designer Showcase so you can try on the demo’s for the skin, the outfit and just wander around ~ and hey wander outside to as well and go sit on the deck with a friend to relax ~ Dena is telling me something about “spots” hmmm no clue what that means but stick around ok…peace to you ~ life is just too short ♥

Credits go to Belle Roussel owner/creator of Chop Zuey for always giving me the opportunity to show off her magnificent jewelry items as well as to Reign Congrejo owner/creator of Evolve for her awesome customer service as well and finally to the Stephanie Fishnet owner/creator of Avada for the lovely Catwa skin applier for this month ~ thank you all

Best B*tches…

When us best bitches hit the town we really like to turn up the heat and paint the town red as I have been away and Starr said I needed to come back with a bang she was right. We started of by hitting the clubs and WOW did the cocktails flow, the dances went wild and we stopped to take in some posters to find out what we might be missing ~

Bitches1
Starr and Me

The outfits are so cute especially when they are the VIP Group Gift from Birdy, Foxes & Alchemy that you can share with your “Bestie” and the one you will be sharing is the one Dena is wearing … but I learned what that means and it is not a bad thing…Babe In Total Control of Herself = Bitch ~ and both Dena and I are very much in control of ourselves and proud of it *hey today I finished along with the assistance of  my RL Roomie putting together a Gas Grill from scratch, which was not a piece of cake but no men to tell us what we were doing or sitting back and watching ~ we had our moments but in all the grill works perfect” sooo see ~ as we got back to my home we spy Sten trying I guess to take a self and whispering to each other we decided to Photobomb his pic *LOL*

Bitches1b
Photobombing

He will be surprised when he opens up and looks for that pic of him and sees both of us standing behind him *giggling* not that my sexy sweet hubby would get upset nope he will get even somehow someway ~ I know that for a fact LOL…But was great to have them both back Dena’s health is better and Sten is back from his travels down/up the East Coast for a nice week of away from SL, away from his work ~ but he was always sweet to send me messages on the road…see a true keeper…Anyway that is it from all of us am sure you will be seeing us again real soon so hey stick around please…hugzz to all ♥

Credits ~ ok have to say that Kay from Image Essentials is coming up with some cute poses for  Mesh Addicts Fair that does start tomorrow ~ there is a whole series of Photobombs that between Dena and I we will try to show you a couple more

Woodland Walk

With the sun shinning and the birds singing their little hearts out today is a good day to get out and about and enjoy the weather while it’s good~ I slipped on this light summer dress Adriana from Furtacor  at this months Designer Showcase it has some lovely patterns and solid colors, added some flat sandals from Basta! called Just Summer and took a walk out into the countryside to admire the stunning views we have around us, nature is wonderful when you think about it she has it better planned out than us she knows when to bloom and when to hide lol

DS3a
Adriana by Furtacor 

Putting my hair up in a bun and this came from Amacci to keep it reasonably neat on the walk I came across a fabulous place called Vine The Forest Garden Meadow stopping by this small pond in a clearing I thought it would give me the perfect opportunity to show you this very beautiful fitting dress from Furtacor at Designer Showcase ~ the flowery design I have chose to wear from its Hud of 30 colors fits right in with these surroundings don’t you think?but have to be very quiet as there is a heron feeding and don’t wish to startle him off ,you might just see him in the background as I am trying to creep away quietly as not to disturb him to much..

DS3b

Walking a little further thinking about the flowers and leaves on the trees I stopped again to show you another design from the Hud but this time one of the solid colors, this bright and bold yellow little number makes quite a statement and don’t you just love it ? but then why not it is summer after all and you will love the ruffled neck line right down to the drawn- in waist and full skirt very flirty, its so easy to wear and you will be in good company wearing this dress as film star Audrey Hepburn wore one the same style in one of her films so I have been told, with so many more colors and patterns to choose from this will be a very good asset to your closet ~Take your time to wander around Designer Showcase there are so many more designers and creators joining and am sure some are your favorites as much as mine, I have really enjoyed showing you these outfits and thank you to every one that has taken the time read the posts and of course your feed back much appreciated

So till next time
Be safe Hugs
Dena

Out with friends…

As the evenings are nicer out now got it into my head I wanted to dress up, made a few calls to ask friends if they wanted to meet up for dinner and then go on to a show, After we had chatted about it over the phone it was decided we would all wear long dresses and was so delighted I had this gorgeous gown Chinablu to wear that is available from *Shoenique Designs at Designer Showcase this month Its a very classy number to wear and will be perfect of our evening out

DS2a
Black Chinablu by Shoenique

As you can see the overlay of embossed lace to the main skirt adds truly a touch of class to the tight fitted bodice then flows down to sweep the ankles ~ This is for sizes XS-XL as well as for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya bodies and is available in Pink,Red,White along with the Black that you can see me wearing from the above pic and it fits my Lara body a treat I have to say~as for my hair I really wanted to go with something out of my normal comfort range that would compliment and make a statement as you can tell ~

DS2b
Jhamin Collection by J&W Jewelers 

Glamorous jewelry always gets you noticed so I have added this collection from J&W Jewelers– I am wearing Pale Amethyst as Amethyst is my Birth color( for January for those that don’t know) and just love its subtle tones of purple that shows here in a close up of the necklace as you can see – This collection includes a necklace, earrings and a ring which are not shown (you will be pleased to know there are some fabulous colors for you to buy at Designer Showcase including Citrine, Diamond, Pink Topaz to name a few, I am sure you will find a set just right for your taste…
