Whispering winds scattring the leaves, a gentle stroll on a dreamy Autumn day, the chill in the air and the warmth of your embrace…

 

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. – George Eliot

Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is “timing” it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way.

“If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him.”
― Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments. If you don’t celebrate those, they can pass you by….

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

Give your heart and soul to me, And Life will always be La Vie En Rose….

 

Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn’t methodical, but jazz isn’t messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians. Jazz is abandon. – Nat Wolff

Jazz stands for freedom. It’s supposed to be the voice of freedom: Get out there and improvise, and take chances, and don’t be a perfectionist – leave that to the classical musicians. – Dave Brubeck

 

PocketGacha is starting it’s September Round on September 15, 2017. KraftWork has made a beautiful Shotgun Jazz Club. The craftsmanship of this collection is beyond beautiful and is a must have for those music lovers as well as lovers of all things vintage.

I also did a teaser video of the Shotgun Jazz Club Gacha Set by KraftWork which you can watch above. I really enjoyed putting it together and how this collection was able to inspire me to create something that I am truly proud of.

To me, punk rock is the freedom to create, freedom to be successful, freedom to not be successful, freedom to be who you are. It’s freedom. – Patti Smith

Magical Universe..

“When the reason for a thing’s being illuminated, it doesn’t hold the same mystery it does when it is unknown, which is both a wonderful and a horrible revelation. It’s wonderful because it’s like peeking into the universe and understanding a tiny bit of its complexity. It’s also horrible because a little bit of magic is removed from the world with each discovery.” ― Bradley Somer, Fishbowl

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.

Monday Meme: Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge!

I’ve mostly been out of the blogging loop and have decided to stay that way for the most part. But as always I am slightly pulled back in by; The Mother of Bloggers, Queen of Photography! Yes this is my personal name for her and I will continue to use it but who else could I be speaking about other than Strawberry Singh!

So she has decided to being Monday Meme’s once again and I couldn’t be happier, as it’s something that I have always enjoyed doing. Also I must note it’s something that can make me blog at least once a week again which isn’t too much for me. Anyways onto this week’s Meme!

Meme instructions: Share an image of your Second Life avatar smiling for a yearbook photo. Don’t forget to share the link to your post in the comments and add your pictures to the new Second Life Yearbook flickr group, you can also share them in the Blog Memes flickr group if you like.

 

Second Life Yearbook Challenge 2015!

I know, I am not smiling but there is a reason for that. I have the AnyPose Expression Hud, which I find quite useful for pictures. There is one thing, I HATE the smiles.. looks like I am going to break into someone’s home and murder them as they sleep…or as if I was giving too many ‘happy’ pills to try to stabilize my mood. So then I went looking at the Loud Mouth which also had me left more than a bit disappointed. So my theme slowly began to take form, I’m angry; this should be so fucking simple! And there I got it, channel my anger into this and make a future mug shot picture because truth be told, I hated smiling for school pictures and was made not once but twice to retake pictures by my mother! So I just used my [Whatever] Teeth 2.0 Pierced that I always wear but with the ‘Hooked’ Mesh Alpha Included! So there you have it, perhaps a bit outside of the box but this is me that we are talking about after all.

 

 

Practice Makes Perfect!

I know that I haven’t really been blogging as of late; lack of inspiration and the realization that it is now indeed summer; meaning my time is split in half between RL and SL. But I think that I might have finally gotten my groove back by playing around with pictures once again. I was finally able to do a few things that I had been wanting to do for a while now; Making water drops and figuring out skin and eyeshadow. To many it might not see like that big of a deal but to a beginner like me it means to the world to have finally figured these little things out.

 

Meh...
