The One Who Loves You the Most

The One Who Loves You the Most

When the sky is falling from above you
And the wind is raging from the coast
And you want someone who truly loves you
I will be the one who loves you the most

~ “The One Who Loves You the Most” by Brent Dennen

The One Who Loves You the Most

I love love—not just romantic (eros) but also agape, philia and storge. The song that names this blog is sweet and charming and has a wonderful ending. YOU become the one who loves you the most, a message I wholeheartedly endorse. (I linked a video of newlyweds dancing and it’s so charming if you are into that sort of thing.)

The soft voice of Brent Dennen serves this outfit from Ariadna Garrigus well. With its bohemian softness, the beautiful embroidery along the neckline and hem, and the light linen (that shows up as a big shiny in a materials viewer), this dress is easy going and sexy all at once, kind of like his singing. I paired it with a limited edition gypsy necklace from Neftisis Rhiadra, which is available in two colors and in limited quantities at Limited Bazaar. And I finally got to wear my cute wedge heels from Terrie Dreadlow that come with a plain color HUD and then add on HUDs with brocade and other patterns. That, I think, was an ingenious way to market the shoes—sell the add-to-Slink shoes with separately-sold add-on HUDs.

The One Who Loves You the Most

Queue Marlowe will be putting this hair down on the floor today if she hasn’t already (or so she told me). With a braid crossing the forehead and curls bound up to the side, it’s a mix of hippy and disco. Of course, Queue includes her gorgeous textures in each texture-change HUD with great ombres. My skin is Aida Ewing’s newest for the Cutie Moon Fair, which everyone is blogging right now. I realize this is hardly anime/Sailor Moon but that is the versatility of Aida’s skins that I can also be a gypsy, crunchy-chewy girl with her lovely visage.

The One Who Loves You the Most

I also want to note my condolences to the friends and family of Dirk Talamasca. He passed away yesterday and his brother posted a message to Facebook on his behalf. SO many people knew Dirk, enjoyed his friendship, his kindness and his humor. He lived a good life.

“I hope he rezzes in a better place where there is low lag and the program never crashes. Goodbye old friend.” ~ Doctor Gascoigne

When you forgive your imperfections
And you’ve auctioned all your clothes
And you look to see your true reflection
You will be the one who loves you the most

“…to slip beneath the surface and soar along the silent bottom of the sea agile and shining in water honeycombed with light.”~ Ellen Meloy

Splash

The theme of Genre this month is “Mer-folk,” so clearly a shot over Linden water is in order. I wore Chandra Meehan’s gorgeous mermaid tail as part of my look. With a mesh center piece and gorgeous tails that combine mesh and flexi and translucency, this mermaid tail is spectacular. The tail comes in several colors—not just this lovely electric blue. My trident is also on sale at Genre in three colors to accessorize a mermaid or merman thanks to Tala Laval. Horns on my head from Draconius Timeless make my mermaid a watery creature rather than just a lovely woman. They come with a great scaly headbase and would suit both men and women.

Splash

The life of a mermaid is no doubt stressful, and Spooky Mistwallow knows every girl deserves a Calgon moment, so she made this darling tentacled bath for Genre. With effervescent bubbles that emerge from the tub and an animated foam, the tub is a place where a mermaid can relax and bathe or, feel frisky, bring her merman in for some intimate moments as the bath includes both single and couple poses. It even comes with a darling tentacle towel holder.

Splash

My glorious skin is Tuli Asturias’ new release for Skin Fair 2014. As usual, she givse us her shapely nose, beautiful lips and brows, and soft blush. Tuli’s face is exquisite, though I am biased—I was always a Tuli girl. Her skin comes in three tones with appliers sold separately. I have dressed the skin up with a makeup from Constance Daehlie that includes little fins to beautify the look and deep murky eyes from Cruella Pennell make my mermaid watery. My necklace, which could be seen as an octopus or alternately as Chthulu, I suppose, holds a brilliant egg. Tiffy Vella is really mastering mesh! All are available at Genre. Finally, I chose a recent hair from Queue Marlowe with her brilliant ombre coloring to top my mermaid off.

“If you swim effortlessly in the deep oceans, ride the waves to and from the shore, if you can breathe under water and dine on the deep treasures of the seas; mark my words, those who dwell on the rocks carrying nets will try to reel you into their catch. The last thing they want is for you to thrive in your habitat because they stand in their atmosphere where they beg and gasp for some air.” ~ C. JoyBell C.

Persevere

28 02 2014

Persevere

Of the Earth signs, Taurus most relate to an unmoving force of nature that has become wise through perseverance.

Persevere

I was born under the sign of Taurus, and I represent my sign well. Some will feel I have stubbornness, but I prefer to think of it as perseverance and steadiness. One blog I read suggested that the Taurus wants to get things done, and that pretty much sums me up. Taureans also love material things, beauty, the earth, the sensual and the grounded. “Down-to-earth” is how many describe me.

Persevere

This outfit is a perfect choice for me as a Taurean. It combines a cozy long sweater with artistically patterned leggings and sexy red heels. Made with a texture that makes the sweater seem plush and expensive, the outfit from Kim Lysette, which she has at LivGlam this weekend for 55L, is nevertheless a deal, which is important to Taureans, who like to spend on beautiful things but also want to make sure they have financial security.  My shoes, a buy at 70L, are AvaGardner Kungler’s offering at The Dressing Room Fusion. Beauty on the cheap is a great thing.

queue's hair

My hair is one of Queue Marlowe’s Arcade pieces. At 50L a pop, it’s well worth it because she gives you a full array of colors in each hair and has included a darling little charm for every sun sign. She gave me the Taurus to show after I stubbornly insisted I wanted it. (Go figure.) My skin is a melange of pieces from the Aria set from Aida Ewing at the Arcade. She has configured it cleverly so you can get add-on pieces and mix and match for a great look. Pretty blue eyes from Isabelle Requiem, for the One Word event, complete the look.

Persevere

“As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci (Taurean)

Appreciate

23 02 2014

Appreciate

Lift up your head
And remember what your life is
Don’t have to give it all away
When you’re left for dead
In the middle of a crisis
You must appreciate the day

~ “Appreciate” by Paul McCartney

Appreciate

My quote is sent out to a friend who has received some bad news, and I want to give him some encouragement. It feels like there is a lot of bad news we receive from friends in SL but the truth is that if we appreciated what we have more, we would *hear* the good news too. The other night a friend who has not been on SL for a while logged on and had the BEST news for me. He had met a beautiful woman in RL and they had gotten married. He spammed me with wedding photos and gosh he was right—she IS beautiful.

None of that is pertinent to this look except the cheer I wish to evoke with the look. Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus have come out with a new leather jacket that can have the tank top or not. Both have color-change HUDs and of course, the colors are coordinated with their other pieces, so I wore their more recent skirt release with its absolutely fabulous tushie. (Paul, please consult the mesh ass people and show them how to do it?) The textures are typical L&B—lush, nuanced, perfectly shadowed and tangible. I want to run my hands all over myself just looking at this jacket. And the snakeskin top is amazing. Add great capris from Ivy Burner (who is also a mistress of texture), gorgeous jewelry from Maxi Gossamer, and funky stilettos from NikkiIrene and I have a great look!

Appreciate

I couldn’t help but put on Queue Marlowe’s whimsical hair from Collabor88. As a friend said, How does it do that? Queue won’t do something unless it’s fun and doesn’t let a bad day EVER get her down, which is why it’s always good to have her around, even if it’s in her hair. My skin is Peachiemuah’s newest doll skin with dimples, soft features and pretty eyes. A touch of lipstick from Mocksoup Graves brightens the natural-toned face. Peachiemuah’s skins come with appliers, so you can wear your Slink hands and feet as I did.

Finally, a shout out to my pal, Rogan Diesel, who has finally given us some more girl poses. Keep it up, sunshine!

Appreciate

There’s something there
But you’re frightened to invite it
Beware of pushing it away
Show that you care
And be certain you don’t fight it
You must appreciate the day

Momentary Bliss

15 01 2014

Momentary Bliss

“One instant, you’re just a regular Joe, schlepping through your mundane life, and then suddenly – what is this? – nothing has changed, yet you feel stirred by a grace, swollen with wonder, overflowing with bliss. Everything – for no reason whatsoever – is perfect.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

Momentary Bliss

I woke up this morning to fresh snow and bright sunshine, and I made muffins, ate a bowl of perfectly sweet cantaloupe, found a most beautiful piece of music from the KCRW song of the day in my podcasts, a chat with a dear new friend, and received a lovely skin to blog. What more bliss can one have?

I ran off to Leroy to take photos of this beautiful mesh dress by Cocoro Lemon, which she is featuring at the Season’s Story. I tried for white but the vendors were not working well that evening, and I ended up with beige, and with this look, it’s about as aetherial as mesh can get. I decided to keep my accessories to a minimum—a flower ring in my hair from Wisp Jinn and anklet from Caelan Hancroft.

Momentary Bliss

I have to admit one good reason for my bliss was this new skin from Umazuma Petaluna. The face is sublime with depth and a natural beauty which appealed to my mood today. Uma has clearly put a lot of work into this skin, from the beautifully drawn brows to the expressive eyes to the smattering of freckles and gentle blush and the full bee-stung lips. She includes appliers for hands and feet (which is why I could wear my Slink hands and feet and run through the grass barefoot), breasts and butt.

I am wearing Queue Marlowe’s newest hair, which falls on my shoulders in gentle waves and looks beautifully natural with its deep textures and attractive silhouette. Deep eyes from Keiba finish this gorgeous look.

Momentary Bliss

Half empty, half full
Cup runneth over
Horns of plenty, coffers full

Cat People

16 12 2013

Cat People

“The smallest feline is a masterpiece.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci

Cat People

Callie invited me to blog the KittyCats Advent Calendar and I gladly accepted though.. well, I am not a cat person entirely. I like cats. We coexist nicely. But I am not enamored of them the way some people are. There are, of course, the “cat ladies,” who are the extreme. But there are also kitty girls, who just like to snuggle their kitties and once in a while dress them up. There are cat women who enjoy the independence of their cats. And then there are the cat men, a particularly charming subset, who expend their nurturing energy on their cats. I know a few of those, all of them tender and kind to a fault.

So I have to be honest, you generally would not be catching me wearing a sweater like this one from Sanura Snowpaw (note the name) except it is one of the generous gifts in the KittyCats Advent Calendar (which she gives away in several colors). Once I put it on, I realized how cozy it is, how it keeps me warm during this very cold winter, and how it has its own delight with a goofy kitty on the front. Worn with cat-patterned wellies from Moonbubble Gothly, it’s a fun and funky outfit.

Cat People

Aida Ewing has come out with a new skin set that I will undoubtedly be showing more often. The Kaelyn set seems to fit my shape better—I wonder if Aida is making to the avatar shape for whom the skin is named. The Mokatana definitely didn’t look as good on me—I have a face shape more like Kaelyn’s—especially in the mouth. Ms. Queue Marlowe has come out with two new styles that are, as usual, delicious and fun. This topknot is SO Queue.

Cat People

Finally, today’s giftie in the Advent Calendar is a royal throne for your favorite KittyCat made lovingly by Carlotta Ceawlin. The seat opens so if you want to dump the cat in, it’s possible. (Oops, did I just say that?)

Luck Be a Lady

4 12 2013

Luck Be a Lady

They call you lady luck
But there is room for doubt

~ “Luck Be a Lady” by Frank Sinatra

Luck Be a Lady

I am one lucky lady. I have this sexy little dress from Ariadna Garrigus, these longer than long red vinyl thigh high boots from Bax Coen and my own showgirl sign, advertising my luck from Agustkov. The dress comes in black with red or white but I chose the red because it’s my lucky color. The boots come in several colors—they were recently released in vinyl because, well, every girl in SL needs a little kink in her SL. And the sign is a great one with texture change, on and off marquee lights, and seven poses—some of which I show here except lying on my back, which is one of Rogan Diesel’s new “Erotique” poses.

Luck Be a Lady

It seems lady luck is what you need at the gachas. I thought SL banned gambling but a little gumball machine stuffing doesn’t seem out of the question. I am lucky because I got Queue Marlowe’s rarest hair offered at the Arcade, this fresh-out-of-bed sexy ‘do with a queen of hearts crown. And my skin is one of Umazuma Metaluna fresh faces from the Arcade. I love the cat eyes and the bright cherry lips softened by a freckled face. Sexy as heck—get them all!

Luck Be a Lady

I would be remiss in telling you about the gift for the fourth day of the KittyCats Advent Calendar. It’s such a sweet gift, it just didn’t fit in with my Lady Luck, but you’d be lucky to get it. Dellybean North has lovingly recreated the KittyCats in a music-playing snow globe. Click the globe and snow falls while a sweet lullaby plays.

The Temptation

22 11 2013

The Temptation

“I generally avoid temptation unless I can’t resist it.” ~ Mae West

The Temptation

I have temptation on the mind today because I recently made toffee bars with two sticks of butter and whole lot of brown sugar and chocolate and they kept beckoning me with their rich sweetness. I finally sealed them up in a container and shoved them in the freezer for Christmas but now the scemt of decadence lingers around me. Today I am show you an evening dress from Ariadne Garrigus that is itself pure temptation with its slim silhouette (belying my toffee bar binge), sequined hem and leg cut-up-to-there-and-then-some. With a simple bodice, the dress is all about that leg, and the leg shows off whatever fabulous shoes you happen to have.

In my case it’s a pair of high high heels from Siddean Munro. With an impossibly sexy wrap-around style and heels that are higher than high, these shoes are temptation itself. What is tempting is to go off and buy every shoe ever made for the Slink feet (every shoe that isn’t overpriced, that is) because you can look so gorgeous. These are Siddean’s newest shoes on her newest feet—a super high heeled foot that truly is designed for shoes only (you’d look funny wearing them separately). Siddean is selling them at Shoetopia but if you can’t get in or can’t see when you get there, she’s going to have them in her store.

The Temptation

Sawsan Secretspy keeps putting out gorgeous skins. I am wearing Donna, one of her newest skins and I love the eye makeup, especially the way it looks with Audrey Lamede’s group gift Portrait Eyes. AvaGardner Kungler is fulfilling her desire to be a jewelry maker in SL and shows us another of her beautiful designs with these earrings she is featuring at L’accessoire. And my girl, Queue Marlowe, has just issued another set of gorgeous hair using her HUD system. This beautiful romantic style is perfect for a tempting look like this one—full locks, curls and a romantic up-do.

Eva

27 10 2013

Eva

“Eva knows I’m terra incognita and explores me unhurriedly, like you did. Because she’s lean as a boy. Because her scent is almonds, meadow grass. Because if I smile at her ambition to be an Egyptologist, she kicks my shin under the table. Because she makes me think about something other than myself. Because even when serious she shines. Because she prefers travelogues to Sir Walter Scott, prefers Billy Mayerl to Mozart, and couldn’t tell a C major from a sergeant major. Because I, only I, see her smile a fraction before it reaches her face…. Because her laughter spurts through a blowhole in the top of her head and sprays all over the morning. Because a man like me has no business with this substance “beauty,” yet here she is, in these soundproof chambers of my heart.” ~ David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

Eva

I am reading Cloud Atlas, and oh, what a great book! This quote is only a smidgen of the gorgeousness of David Mitchell’s writing, which changes in voice among his characters. (Oh, Robert Frobisher, you wily sexy penniless bon vivant bisexual composer.. what a delicious wit you have!)

My Eva is a credit to the romantic love the narrator feels for her. Start with this charming mesh dress from LeeZu Baxter. With its flowered blouse and Victorian style sleeves, lace pencil skirt and satin hem, this gorgeous piece is an homage to the 70s in its complex textures and silhouette. LeeZu has added a subtle shimmer to the fabric, a satiny gloss that shows well in the new materials viewing in SL. BabyChampagne Sass’ high-heeled, high-fashion shoes

I paired Maizon Rayna’s gorgeous jewelry with the outfit. A real life fashion designer, Maizon has always dreamed of being a jewelry maker and in SL she can do it. This gorgeous onyx pearl set with its accompanying flower-shaped jeweled ring includes earrings and a bracelet, which I do not show.

Eva

Aida Ewing’s gorgeous Vera skin gives our Eva a perfect look with darkly lined eyes and a pale pink lipstick and blush. Queue Marlowe’s latest, a side swept ‘do, gives the whole look a beautifully blonde tumble of curls. And Reira Islay’s eyes, sold at the Halloween Mini Mart, are intensely lovely.

You Gotta Do Right

16 10 2013

You Gotta Do Right

There was a lady on the mountain
Eyes like pools of water in the sun
Hair flowed down her shoulders like the river
I can see her chest move up and down
Started calling out
She was calling out to you
You recall it now, she was calling out to you
You gotta do right by your woman
As she’ll do right by you

~ “Calling Out to You” by Tedeschi Trucks Band

You Gotta Do Right

I have to write this blog so fast because I have to get ready to go see the Tedeschi Trucks Band TONIGHT. I am so excited! I have written about them before in my blog and now I get to see Derek and Susan live! I will be wearing an outfit with black stripes as this one has, my hair down, a scarf and sweater, leggings and boots (not so warm here as it is in SL). I am going with my favorite guy who knows how to do right by his woman. (By taking me to this concert, first of all!) Happy Anniversary, honey!

I opted for this striped dress from Kaiden Trill because it’s so sexy. I know it’s a template mesh dress but Kaiden has made it work with the stripes running across the body—this is a classic, and also inexpensive at The Limitee this round. I dressed it up with Maxi Gossamer’s goth jewelry from Collabor88 (perfect for this Halloween season) and sandals from Siddean Munro.

You Gotta Do Right

Aida Ewing’s pale skin, being offered at Kustom9, is a great look for these stripes and Queue Marlowe’s bouncy beautiful curls with the great HUD that offers me the ombre option I show here, makes the look. Finally, check out my Halloween nails from Giela Delpaso. Her latest offers subtle Halloween motifs for hands and toes—love em!
