A hedonistic adventure into Second Life! Come let me share with you my journey through the world of fashion and home decor!
Wednesday, January 3, 2018
Those of you who have been following along for the past few months know that my health has once again taken an unexpected turn, causing me to blog less and to have to take more time away for appointments and to just rest. With a heavy heart I have decided to step away from the blogging I love so much to concentrate on my health for a while. We still don't have internet at the house and I just don't have the energy right now to make the commute into town to work on my blog. In the past I would have felt terribly about having to take this break, but I have been following a pretty amazing woman for the past 6 months and she has taught me it's ok to take a step back and away for a bit to recharge my batteries. From time to time I am sure I will get stir crazy and will come in just so I can see the new goodies created on the grid and to just check in with my readers. Knowing I won't be blogging, I put together a space I can relax and unwind in when I decide to come into town using goodies from Bee Designs and Ariskea, so come inside and grab a cup of tea with me and let's talk about what the future holds!

Tomorrow is the last night of 2017 and I hope everyone has safe and fun plans in the mix! The boyfriend and I are going to use our Gift Certificate for Outback and enjoy a night out for the two of us. I know anyone with children knows how hard it can be to spend alone time together, even when the kids are 18 and 19, so we are going to take advantage of the time and relax together as the year comes to a close. This past year has had it's ups and downs but it has been nice to have each other to face things together, instead of apart, and that has made things a little bit easier. If you happen to have plans on Second Life for New Year's Eve, and you are still frantically looking for a gown, then do yourself and head over to Swank before they close their doors and grab this absolutely stunning new gown from Virtual Diva!
The Holy Couture Gown from Virtual Diva is an exclusive at Swank until the end of the month and then will be available in the store. The design is stunning and the open back and daring neckline make it a sensuous dress that you just have to see to believe, so do yourself a favor and pick yours up today. And while you are out shopping on the grid, stop by Nord Embyl'Lys and check out the last design of the year, you won't be disappointed! The Flocons de Neige collection has an amazing HUD that allows you to choose the colors of your gems and pearls as well as to resize the pieces, which include earrings, two necklaces and bracelets, giving you a stunning and complete collection perfect for the Winter! Happy Shopping!!!
In the days before I left for my little Christmas getaway I took this photo and had it all edited and ready to post when life jumped up and got in the way and I was unable to share it with you all. Since my return I have been dealing with health issues that have me feeling rundown and just blah! Today I decided to try and brighten my mood by coming into town so I could share this fabulous little scene with you all while the spirit of the holidays still fills the air.
It took me a few months to get into the boxes on Second Life that you can get for different things, and though I have tried a few at this point, I only have two continuous subscriptions at this point, including De(c)ocrate. December's box was chock full of goodies for the Winter and they all happen to mix and match quite well with the Holiday Advent Calendar from CIRCA. I hope you enjoy this scene as much as I do, since I haven't ever put my house back up! Happy Shopping and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
So if any one was paying attention to my post at the end of last week, then you know I was looking forward to a week of getting organized for work and of doing a bit of catch up on my blogging. Well as we all know, as soon as you make plans, life happens. I have been putting on a bit of a brave face of late as I have had to ween myself off of my nerve medication, per physician instruction, since I have developed a life threatening allergy to it. If there was one medication I would tell people I couldn't live without, it would have been that one, so I have been getting to know that pain again and it has thrown me for a loop and kept me from being able to come into town to my computer. It has been years now since I have had to feel the fire of nerve pain through my body, but I am finding a new strength in looking for alternative treatments and empowering myself and once again calling pain my constant companion, my muse, but never my friend.
"The Poet and The Muse
There's an old tale wrought with the mystery of Tom
The poet and his muse
And the magic lake which gave a life
To the words the poet used
Now the muse she was his happiness
And he rhymed about her grace
And told her stories of treasures deep
Beneath the blackened waves
'Till in the stillness of one dawn
Still in its mystic crown
The muse she went down to the lake
And in the waves she drowned
And now to see your love set free
You will need the witch's cabin key
Find the lady of the light gone mad with the night
That's how you reshape destiny
