It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences…

I’m an Exquisite Black Queen! I like, love, and celebrate myself. I don’t fit society’s beauty standards, but I’m beautiful to me. I know my worth and I respect who I am as a woman. I’ve got beauty on the inside and that makes me empowered and powerful. I’m fearless and comfortable in my own skin. I’ve got flaws, but I’m still confident! This Queen right here is flawed yet phenomenal, valuable and unique! – Stephanie Lahart

..You Marry The Person Who You Cannot Live Without… (LuxeBox August 2017)


We seek the comfort of another.
Someone to share and share the life we choose.
Someone to help us through the
neverending attempt to understand ourselves.
And in the end,
someone to comfort us along the way.

– Marlin Finch Lupus


I normally would have an unboxing video to go along with this post but I simply didn’t have the time or the drive to record a video at the moment. If I record one in the next week I will add it to this post, but I at least wanted to get a picture with the amazing items from this month.

If you didn’t join the Luxe Box in time for the month and you would like to get the items, there are two different ways that you can get it. First you can join the Luxe Box group on the 15’th of the month after it’s been delivered for double the price until 12am of the 16’th of that month or Secondly you can join when enrollment begins on the 1’st of the month and go to the Luxe Box Boutique and buy any of the previous Luxe Boxes. All of this information is listed on the Luxe Box FAQ. All previously released Luxe Boxes are available at the Luxe Box Boutique for the cost of 2000L. To receive the latest Luxe Boxes, it costs 1500L to join the group every month before the 15’th when enrollment ends and the box is delivered. To see what’s in the boxes of previous months, check out the Luxe Box Catalog.

..Idle Summer Day..


Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds. – Regina Brett

The Joy of Gardening – Designer Showcase: Apple Fall

A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. A garden is a grand teacher. – Unknown


Currently Apple Fall is having an amazing sale inworld; where items are marked to 25, 50 or 75L only. Please note that giftcards are not included for the sale; those are still full price. Also the sale is only inworld and not on Marketplace.  The sale started on Monday July 17, 2017  and will be going until Friday July 21, 2017. There are so many amazing deals at the sale; that everyone should take a moment and check out. I’ve also personally found 15 items in the mainstore that were marked down to 0L. Free everyone!, of those items; a few were plants and one was the Apple Fall – New York Studio Apartment. The Studio Apartment has a menu where you can change the texture of the walls & floor to 4 different themes, reflecting New York. It’s an amazing steal; and there are many more free items hidden around.


Today I bring you a tutorial of how to create your own personal planters using items that I’ve gotten at the Apple Fall Sale. Below you’ll find my video tutorial/vlog on how to unlink items and relink with other items to create your own planter. The possibilities are endless of what you can create with items that are modifiable and can be unlinked.

I hope that you enjoyed the tutorial/vlog and that I helped to show what is possible once you know what to do.

Wednesday Find: Heart Song

While reading through the different blogs that I follow regularly, I came across something early Monday morning that caught my attention. Harlow Heslop, had been working on her personal homestead sim: Heart Song. For the time being she has left it open to the public so that people may take pictures and explore the land. I knew that a chance such as this doesn’t come around everyday, so I placed it on my to-do list for the week and finally went! (Dragging the husband along as well) Harlow Heslop is one of the top five photographers in SL that I look up too and follow, it was an honor to go and see what her mind created for the sim. If you haven’t please check out her Blog and Flickr; I promise you that you will not be disappointed.

What she has created is simply breath-taking. I had to take a couple of pictures on different windlight setting, that I did nothing too, save for cropping. I hope that you all enjoy and hope that you go take a look at Heart Song while it’s still open to the public.
