Be like a peacock and dance with all your beauty

Be like a peacock and dance with all of your beauty.

Peacocks are glorious creatures, peahens are so dowdy by their side. Aren’t we lucky that both the male and the female of our species can, if they choose, be as gaudy as a peacock or as subtle as a peahen? I am going for the gaudy side today with this gloriously embellished butterfly “Glasswings” dress from Reverie for The Arcade.

Be like a peacock and dance with all of your beauty.

It seems serendipitous that Sway’s and Moon Amore released peacocks and butterflies at The Arcade at the same times as that dress from Reverie. I love the accidental synchronicity of The Arcade.

The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.

The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.

Self-help has not changed much since 160 C.E. when Marcus Aurelius was journaling. His published Meditations are a twelve-volume collection of self-help books that are in the public domain, free to anyone to download for their fill of his “Think Yourself” [insert desired quality here] philosophy.

You probably think I am kidding. I am not. Here’s a bit of the self-help advice from good old Marky A.

  • Yes, you can—if you do everything as if it were the last thing you were doing in your life.
  • You don’t love yourself enough. Or you’d love your nature too, and what it

Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans

“Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans.”

“Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans.” Mania Khan must know swans, they do love the quiet, the lee side of an island lake, where the wind does not ruffle the water. I thought of that quote when I saw the {anc.} swans at The Arcade and decided to rez them on a quiet eddy of water with some flowers (also from anc) and trees from HPMD.

“Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans.”

I am wearing a lovely satin charmeuse slip from Thalia Hackworth™. It comes in 14 colors. You could wear a different one every day for TWO WEEKS!

Just the hair, please.

“Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans.”

Lelutka released some new hair styles. I fell in love with them all, but chose this one to wear first. When I was playing around with photo effects in Pixlr, I loved how this shows the real care and excellence of the hair texturing in a way a color photo does not. So, this is just a short post of just the hair.

p.s. I know some yahoo thinks using Pixlr is unworthy and attacked another blogger for using it in SL Secrets. All I can say is have you used Pixlr? It’s fun. It’s easy. And if you want … Read more →

A-Frame Life

One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

Growing up on a resort lake with twenty-one year round residents, but thousands of weekenders who flood the lake and live in the more the hundreds of lakefront cabins that are empty most of the year, I am very familiar with A-frames. Lots of people bought A-Frame kits or pre-made A-Frames, much faster than the old-fashioned bungalow style cabins that signal older homes on the lake. This A-Frame from Barnesworth Anubis has an advantage over many of the lake front cabins as the ceiling rests on a short bit of vertical wall. The A-frames on the lake often did not … Read more →

Lovely Lace from Baiastice

One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

I am loving the new jumpsuit from Baiastice for Collabor88. It comes in two versions for each of the twelve colors it comes in, with a plain, solid bodice or with a lace bodice. I chose the lace bodice because I was feeling frisky.


One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

It’s a great pantsuit and looks even better with the bright, bold Hebe shoes from EMPIRE. I decided to chill out on the deck in the junk patio chairs. I think they need a paint touch up, but I am feeling too lazy to do it. Soy released a lot of plants which made their way … Read more →

Life Is Uncertain, Eat Dessert First

Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.

The veggie tray, apple pie, salt and pepper shakers and waffle iron can all be found at The Arcade.

The uncertainties of life are manifest every day. Some uncertainties are harder than others. My sister has Stage IV lung cancer. But her future is still uncertain, it’s quite possible the chemo will kill her long before the cancer can. She’s been in the hospital for two weeks now as a mold has developed in her lungs, thanks to chemo bringing her white blood cell count down to zero. On Thursday, I learned she has developed VRE, a anti-biotic resistant bacteria … Read more →

The size of your audience doesn't matter. What's important is that your audience is listening.

I recently finished a book my sister gave me, “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch. I really like one of the things Pausch said, “The size of your audience doesn’t matter. What’s important is that your audience is listening.” It’s interesting, I think, what draws people in. However, with events like Collabor88, they can not only boast about the size of their audience, but also that they audience listens (shops).

August is the anniversary month for Collabor88 and they always invite all the guests from the entire year for a blowout showcase. Collabor88 will continue until the 6th, so while … Read more →

Give me flowers, lots of flowers

Pixicat’s Ambrosia dress for Collabor88 is a dream for flower lovers and isn’t that everyone? The HUD lets you change the color of the flowers and the dress. I went for white with black flowers, loving the drama, but I could have chosen pastels, bold red and blue or even white. Each choice gives the dress a different emotional tenor. Then I can change the color of the dress, too. So much choice.

I like the fitted bodice and full skirt. It’ a very feminine and romantic shape.

Isn’t that bodice gorgeous? The sheer sleeves are a bit tricky. In … Read more →

Polygonadoodle All Day

This fun dress from SPIRIT is a winner in my book. There is a HUD that allows you to change the top and the skirt independently, so this could be all print, all solid, and mixed as you see here. The gap on the midriff is echoed on the back. I like the retro sensibility of the print.

These shoes from Pure Poison are pure magic. They come with a HUD that allows you to select the color of the base, and the two different lace colors that form front of the shoe. These are not to be missed.
