a queen waits…

Somewhere in the night a queen awaits on a balcony waiting for her prince to walk in and whisk her away ~ well maybe that happens and then again the queen dresses up looking fabulous in her sparkly gown and takes her own self out to the gala ♥ When I put this gown Naeen on by .:JUMO:. I truly felt like a queen ~ this gown is stunning and when you combine it with the hair Molly also by .:JUMO:. you just feel regal. The gown has an incredible hud with 25 different colors, patterns, and textures.  Making this one gown that will become a staple in your inventory for those nights out when you want that royal look ~ I accessorized the gown with a necklace worthy from Moondance Boutique and really put on some eye makeup fitting for an Egyptian queen ♥

Royal Portrait
The gorgeous eye makeup “Isola” is by Alma ~ 3 different version to fit your head, hud includes 8 different colors ~ very dramatic and for me just was perfect to complete the look ~ the lippy “Aquatic” by Alaskametro is found at the Mermaid Cove Event giving the finishing touches ~ that gorgeous necklace by Moondance Boutique has so many combinations that you will truly want this in your closet for those special evenings out♥ Did I tell you these items with the exception of the lippy will be at Designer Showcase till the end of the month and the Mermaid Cove will be ending on the 13th so don’t waste a moment to take the ride below…Before I depart for RL couple things to mention ~ other bloggers, please credit the pose creator ~ they work hard and lately am seeing more and more blog posts that do not credit them with excuses “oh I forgot or not a big deal” but it is to those that work hard at creating them ~ tips to prevent that open up a notecard & make notes ~ please when someone asks you a question directly do not be rude or have an attitude ~ if they are asking you they must value your opinion ♥ now RL is screaming at me ♥

Rez Day…


Yes, today I turn 10 years old in SL ~ at times am like whaaat I have been in SL that long? Honestly never thought when I first logged it would turn into something special ~so I put on a gown gotten looking fancy and sat down with one of my longtime friend Brutus sharing some memories ~ a friend had talked me into finally giving SL a chance as I was uncertain as I had tried “Sims” and got bored quickly that was not really sure I would even like it ~ what a HUGE difference I discovered even back then ~ once I logged never once have I regretted a day and no it has not been all roses ~ lot of dark times, my heart got broke, which that even shocked me the connections and relationships you make in here…now below is one of my first profile pics that I took myself and oh my I just thought wow ~ sheesh now I look am like woah but you do have to think 10 years ago our hair was like cement, eyes had no depth and shape was just that we were basically clones ~

early profile pic

One good thing I had a lot of help from strangers ~ learning where to buy hair, tats, makeup ~ who had the best eyes and started my shopaholic addiction ♥ every day I was amazed at discovering what you could do like going to clubs hearing live singers and finding that I could be a great dancer and dance the nights away.  Even today I have friends that I met back then and still, we talk about the “good ole days”  Never bored, as SL and communities provide so much that if you are bored as I repeat over and over to EXPLORE ~ its simple go visit Paris in the 1920’s, look at the destination guide for hunts, clubs, etc. and talk to whoever you meet ~ look at the profiles as you can find some interesting places that people have visited.  It is nice to have friends to do stuff with but I will say 85% of my time in SL is by myself and not just for blogging as that just became a major part of my SL life ~ thank you to all the friends I have met in my 10 years as many of you still hold a special place in my heart ♥

the view…


As I promised July is all about exploring all the picturesque views in SL and Whimberly is the first one that I am visiting ~ standing where I am dressed in a gorgeous Fawn gown by Jumo you can see the view is just spectacular.  This gown is just stunning along with the designer giving you a gorgeous Hud that has 25 unique textures ~ from the design of this gown with the unique leather fitting to the sexy slits that give your legs that long lean sexy look this is a keeper for me.  Is now at Designer Showcase for the month and you must take the ride below to try on at least the demo so you can see how sexy you will look in it ~ course your close up is below to show you a different texture within the hud.


Choosing another texture you can really see how gorgeous Fawn is plus you can see exactly what am speaking of with that unique fitted bodice giving a peek to those gorgeous abs that you have been working on all winter.  This gown will fit in nicely for those sundown parties on the beach or at one of your exclusive galas ~ as the designer has included those statement earrings and bangles that also have a hud ~ Now that the doors are opened at Designer Showcase till the end of the month all rides will be below. Please stick around as this months proves to have some truly gorgeous items from all my sponsors that I just cannot wait to show you ~ remember please show kindness to yourself and to others ♥♥

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 ♥

Hawt stuff…

showing off my booty

how can you not grab this hawt outfit especially if you are club person ~ yes this is not for someone who is shy and stands on the sidelines but to those that want to show off their bums of steel.  guess I need to turn around so you can see the front of this uber sexy outfit that yes does include those sleek boots.

wearing Olgha by GIULIA DESIGN

what I love about this outfit is the hud with a choice of 6 different colors for the skirt ~ the necklace, bra top, skirt, and boots are all inclusive only at Designer Showcase.  A demo is available for size fitting but I made no adjustments wearing my Maitreya.  This sassy outfit is one that I will be slipping back on when hubby and I go out dancing.  Rides will be posted below ~ remember to be kind to yourself and others ~ hugzz ♥♥

Derby time…

Standing next to “My Boy Jack”

standing in the pouring rain next to the horse that finished 5th in the Derby am looking pretty fantastic in my Derby finery ~ not sure how long that will last so I will be quick…slipping on a dress that was created by Jumo called Cara, which is truly a standout even in the rain ~ this gorgeous dress is sleek and very sexy…

wearing “Cara” by Jumo

and you can tell it comes with a great hud that has various textures and colors to choose from…love the way the creator created that hip peek using the bow to keep it together…there is a demo for you if you are worried about the fit ~ now to show you the gorgeous skin that is also at Designer Showcase again and wanted to also show off my Derby hat complete with roses…

wearing Clover by 7 Deadly s{K}ins

Gorgeous in “Dew” and wearing the brows that do come with the skin.  You really will have to come and try on a demo so you can just see how this looks with your head…Right now am getting soaked and those heels will never come clean if I don’t get out of the rain, so till next time stay dry and pass on a little bit of kindness ♥

Those earrings truly make a statement wouldn’t you agree?  Makeup by Alma & Dulce Secrets also are at Designer Showcase this month ~ the Matt Lipstick by Alma just set the tone and I will say with 9 shades was hard to pick ~ For the final touch I used the “Dolled Up eye-shadow by Dulce Secrets ~ making me truly feel GLAMorous ♥♥ Look below for all the rides to Designer Showcase and the other stores mentioned ~ thank you again to my followers, supporters and those that always make me smile with their truly kind comments ~ very appreciated ♥ till next time pass on a little kindness ♥
