Mr. X and Tanisha - Gold in the Night and October 4 Seasons New Gift Skin

People who dream when they sleep at night know of a special kind of happiness which the world of the day holds not, a placid ecstasy, and ease of heart, that are like honey on the tongue. They also know that the real glory of dreams lies in their atmosphere of unlimited freedom.  


It is not the freedom of the dictator, who enforces his own will on the world, but the freedom of the artist, who has no will, who is free of will. The pleasure of the true dreamer does not lie in the substance of the dream, but in this: that there things happen without any interference from his side, and altogether outside his control.


This fabulous mesh  dress by Gold in the Night is lavish in an artful African inspired print based on traditional beadwork and colors... I love it.   And, I know, great landscapes we  see forever  -- long splendid views, rich and delicate colours, roads, houses, to explore  hand  in hand... You know you are truly alive when you’re living among lions.



Perhaps he knew, as I did not, that the Earth was made round so that we would not see too far down the road.


Can you hear...the Cicada sing an endless song in the long grass, smells run along the earth and falling stars run over the sky, like tears over a cheek. You are the privileged person to whom everything is taken. The Kings of Tarshish shall bring gifts

Jasmina Flower - New Group Gift from October 4 Season Skins & Purplemoon @ Swank

 And wow what a generous gift this is!  There are two skins included in the Jasmina Flower Gift including warm vanilla  that is made for classic bodies.  It also comes with skin appliers for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya Lara Mesh bodies.


I love the eye make-up and lipstick on this skin it is so artfully hand drawn along with the perfectly arched thick eyebrows.


I have paired this new skin with the new exclusive dress called Amelie Lace Dress by Purplemoon at Swank with its flirty silk slip dress and sexy lace over it. The dress comes with a large color changing  hud, but I love this skin with this periwinkle blue. There is also a darker coco color that is perfect for beach wear that is included in the  belleza, slink, and maitreya lara body huds.


If you have a mesh head, no worries an omega skin applier is included and works like a dream with catwa and leltuka heads.  There are also two shapes sold separately one for the Lelutka Simone Bento Head Shape (I am wearing the Leluka shape) and a Jasmina Flower Shape.

Mr. X and the Zebras.... Park Furniture and Ch @ Swank and New Jumo

All is quiet and I am waiting once again for Mr. X.  There is something simply wonderful about the striking contrast of black and white...and the faux zebra print... peta approved.  I once read an article asking if zebras were white with black stripes or black with white stripes.... 


I love the bedroom offered by Park Place that includes the black zebra chaise at only 14 prims that is loaded with single - his and hers and cuddle animations, there is also an adult  version. I love the Pen and In Drawings (1 prim), Our World Photos (2 prims)  and the black marble giraffe (3 prims).


Animal prints have been popular throughout history because they are exotic and used as a sign of status.    Many zoologists would say that a zebra is white because its stripes end towards the belly and the belly is mostly white. Others would say that a zebra is black because if you shaved all the fur off a zebra the skin is, surprisingly, mostly black.  I love the living room chaise lounges and white laminate cabinet with accessories!

I am wearing the gorgeous sweetheart top and bikini pants by Chi's that comes made for fit mesh, Lara and Belleza bodies. It also comes with a fabulous color changing hud that allows you to change the color of the bow, the top and the bikini pants.  The lace top stockings are by irriSIStible made for mesh bodies.

Mr. X @ Shabby Chic from Aphrodite @ Heart Homes....and Ghee Lingerie

I can't think of anything more fun than eating truffles in  bed... ok, well I can and, yes, this bed comes in PG and Adult with poses for singles and couples... and has been created by Aphrodite at Heart Homes.  It is low prim and really so well done as all their items are... they are my favorite furniture  designers... they have heart!


The Shabby Chic Bed by Aphrodite at Heart Homes is a winner.  It is in the style of French Shabby Chic with beautifully romantic soft colors  of white, tan, eggshell and pink.  The floor lamp is from Aphrodite at Heart Homes Modern Collection... I liked it with the Shabby Chic bed!


I have paired this bed with  lingerie by  Ghee now in their main store... it is sweet sexy and lacey... just perfect for this romantic and yes  naughty bed but I never kiss and tell......


This low prim bed has so many animations from cuddles and lovemaking to  activities -- watching movies, reading to each other, coffee, and much more... it is amazing!


Mr, X wants a bedtime story -- so we sit together with a cup of hot rum coffee and... I  begin  to tell him a story... about --- bears in the woods and dreams realized and those to be found and  best of all  dreams of him.....

Mr. X and Sydney - * New* Luxe Paris (A Miss SL gown) and Emo-tions

It is where creatives go to meet their muse... in a ballroom surrounded by malachite pillars and lapis lazuli decorated furniture that is dimly lit by sparkling crystal chandeliers --their glow casting silhouettes of lovely women in grand ball gowns...as they glide on polished marquetry floors...can't you hear the waltz...floating on the evening breeze? I love the new gown my Luxe Paris called Sydney.


I love this traditional ballgown with its sweetheart neckline, spaghetti straps,  and its signature full skirt that sweeps to the floor. It is so romantic. I love how form fitting the bodice and waistline is that is sure to show off my figure.  What really makes this gown a stand out is the lace and hand embroidered floral pattern that is punctuated by a lavish red flower that ties this all together.


I have paired this gown, that looks as beautiful from the back as it does from the front with the new long hair by Emo-tions that is an exclusive at Tres Chic. It has a medieval vibe to it which i really love. Wearing this opulent gown you will master an elegant evening with style and grace. This gown was made for Miss SL Ireland.

Mr. X and Angel Nuriel and Dreams - CWS and new Emo-tions Hair

Midsummer's Eve was once considered a magical night imbued with supernatural powers. It makes me feel like an  angel and so does  CWS in the new release.... Dreams of woman... Lingerie... it is so opulent and beautifully detailed... your angel will be ready for the "fall"!


Midsummer's Eve  has so many magical powers... it is all the moon.....So much so that summer flowers have their own mythical meaning. I shall pick seven different kinds of flowers and put them under my pillow - and dream of my true love.
Midsummer's Eve is synonymous with late evenings spent in verdant gardens. Echoes of laughter resounding long into the night. 


We sing and rejoice that summer is finally here. What a gloriously festive time!
Happy Midsummer!

Mr. X and Fifth Ave. - New Suit by Sascha's Designs @ Swank

Mr. X found a new museum in SL that he told me we must explore. I love art museums in both lives... to gaze upon paintings of masters and discuss the colors, scenes, history and brush strokes for me and Mr. X is pure joy!  And this museum laid out like a real life museum is a pleasure to explore.


Needless to say, the perfect museum outfit is the new suit by Sascha's Designs called Fifth Avenue Suit that is an exclusive at Swank is perfect for a languid afternoon in a museum.


I love the cropped bolero style jacket with silver studs and the wide hat with Jackie O sunglasses that makes Fifth Avenue so sophisticated and sexy. It is made for fitmesh and mesh bodies and comes with shoes, a hat and sunglasses.

Mr. X -- for the birds - splendid and majestic Jumo

Alone in a  sacred valley the daughter of Quetzalcoatl lives...the goddess of wind and learning... she controls hurricanes and dust devils...whirlpools and the waves of the oceans.



She often lonely and often walks the paths of the forest to the great tree. Here she looks to the the west, where mountains rise into the sky... often as the sun goes down she hears a beautiful voice singing from the nearby mountains... she always wondered could it be... could he be --  the prince of the western mountains.



She vows that someday she will meet him. The sun begins to set gilding the mountain peaks highlighting the rich jewel tones of her plumage.  Her wings fly, dance, mesmerize and delight the eyes.  She is hopeful... and luminescent in the setting sun-- adorned with memories of lives yet to be lived and tomorrows to share.



She waits as the sunsets... and golden like a resplendent bird into the sunrise...

Mr. X and Jailie Ghee @ Scala and Emo-tions

 Mr. X and I  love the elegant East West look of the new gown that is an exclusive at Scala  by Ghee called Jailie. Can't you feel the  flow of the  flower sleeves that  billow like an artful haori. They have puffy shoulders and a square neckline giving it a contemporary look and the headdress is pure  joy.

The solid color of the simple sheath gown that billows out like a mermaid dress gives anyone wearing this gown a sleek and alluring silhouette.

I love the use of  the chrysanthemum, or Kiku as it is known in Japanese, on the artful sleeves and jacket of this gown as well as in the fan head dress. The chrysanthemum represents longevity and rejuvenation.  It is also the symbol of Royalty, the Emperor and the Imperial Family.



I wait for Mr. X wearing this gorgeous gown an  haiko comes into my mind...



a tomb of beauty
Memory of Geisha's Heart
Tsunami tears in  albums

Plum Flower temple
Voices rise
From the foothills

The crow has flown away;
swaying in the evening sun
a leafless tree.

Mr. X and Cassiopeia - New Jumo Skin, Eye and Lip make-up and hair

Mr. X... I am confused as to what to wear... what kind of party is it.. who is on the guest list... what is the dress code and, most importantly what is for dinner?

A formal affair of industry titans Mr. X tells me.  Ok, then, I must wear the Cassiopeia Gown by Jumo. This gown is sexy and classy at the same time with  a color changing hud that offers many different colors and three different patterns.  I love the peekaboo crochet pattern in all it's delicious colors.

Tres crochet... this dress is lavished with a beautiful woven top and a deep plunging neckline.  The slender skirt that flounces out a bit at the bottom is embellished with large geometric rosettes that makes it romantically irresistible. Cassiopeia also comes with beautiful gold and silver enameled earrings and a long necklace that sets this gown off perfectly.  I am also wearing new skin by Jumo in Caramel called Taylor with Taylor eyeliners and lipstick that are sold separately.

This is Taylor Cocoa skin that is such a great skin for summer and it really looks good with orange, yellow and blue.  Taylor comes with six eyebrow options making it easy to wear with just about any color hair. The Taylor Lipstick has a wonderful realistic sheen to it and the new exoctic  Taylor eye-shadow that offers six options are a must have. I love the way the orange eyeshadow plays against the skin and matches the gown.

Another beaded version of the Cassiopeia gown has a retro art deco vibe to it... it will make you feel glamourous.  There are many color options for the beaded versions of this gown. I fell in love with the glittering Nile green beaded option although the blue, red, black, purple ... and more are also lovely and at your fingertips with the click of a button!

The hair I am wearing is Whitney Ombre roots blonde also a new release by Jumo. I think she has been a busy lady! The skin is Taylor Frescia.

Mr. X @ ZEX, TM, Rebellion and Star @ Swank @ Jumo

It's summer and that always gets me in the mood to landscape... so Mr. X and I went to Swank and found several items by TM Creations that were just what we had in mind. The first is the Love Bench that comes with heart of roses ground cover, animations, and five types of particles. It is so pretty.


With so much detail and so many options it is hard to believe that the 100% mesh [Love Bench] is only 9 prims, you can also copy and modify it. The bench contains a menu without poseball (simply sit) for Cuddle and singles animations for 2 persons.  There are 54 animations including 27 Cuddle poses with 30 sec loop x each), for romantic couples moments.  There are also SOLO female/male, 16 animations in all for two people.

I am wearing another find from Swank.  A flirty off the shoulder midriff top, lace up mini skirt and sexy summer sandals that lace all the way up my legs by [ZEX] called Nina.  I love the deep teal blue and the melding of the pattern on the top with the color of the skirt.
I couldn't resist wearing the new leather collar called Delilah by Rebellion with this to kick up the heat a bit!  Another find was the Star Eye Enhancement eye makeup  that is made for lelutka, catwa and slink mesh heads and for classic heads.  The Star eye enhancement comes in  cotton earth, sun, and ocean.
If you are in the market for a Summer Gazebo, TM is also offering a low prim 13 prim mesh Rose Gazebo. It comes with a standing animation menu for two that includes:COUPLES: 48 animations (24 couple (cuddle) poses 30 sec loop x each), SEQUENCE: 2 Cuddle-scene Sequence Play up to 8 mins of scene x each (looping) and  SOLO (F/M): 2 standing animations for person.


So Mr. X...my best summers were spent outside exploring the coastline looking for shells and seaglass. Finding things in my aunt's cluttered barn...world's fair jerky black and white movies, a thousand books, saddles...Civil War uniforms (both sides)... faded photographs of picnics in the backyard... memories of how people use to live.
