#85 this fairy’s gift

All the ancient classic fairy tales have always been scary and dark                                        – Helena Bonham Carter


The third fairy drifts into the castle, trailing butterflies and the scent of magical gardens. Memory bears her gift to the tiny princess; one perfect golden peony, symbolizing beauty and honor.

#84 ‘Little Black Dress’ style



One is never over-dressed

or underdressed

with a Little Black Dress 

Karl Lagerfield


I slip into my favorite [ZE} LBD, zip up my Essenz heels, fluff up my D!va hair and lean in close to the mirror to check my Veechi lipstick and eyeshadow. Oops – I nearly forgot to check my nails. A quick coat of {ZOZ] in a  gold shade – superfast drying.

Hmm now  for jewelry – I’ll choose a couple of  LUXE. gold accessories – then add some from LaGyo. Done!

Zoom over to the IE photo studio to snap some selfies – then off to the casting. Wish me luck.

#81 The last of the evening sun

I’m not one of those people who wakes up and thinks, ‘Bring on the day!’ I have to have about 7 pints of coffee before I’m even remotely awake. But I love the golden hour in the evening, as hokey as that sounds. Just as the sun is about to set and you get those lovely shadows and everything looks gold and yellow.    Stacy London

Last sun

It is wonderful to lean back against the warm bricks in the evening sun soaking in the soft healing ambiance.

In Second Life wonderful poses help express the feeling – these poses from  – IE Wall to Wall V1 & V2, by Kay Weston – from the recent Alchemy event – are now instore at Image Essentials

#74 Prom Night

‘Cause someday when you’re looking back on your life
At the memories, this is gonna be one of those nights                                                                             – Tim McGraw

Prom night Mem 2nd tint

Looking back – it’s the photographs we treasure; letting us remember the details – the hours spent dreaming, planning and preparing.

Kay Weston of IMAGE ESSENTIALS has made this great set of pose props to catch our Second Life memories. IE Prom Night Set 1 (featured here) has a silky backdrop with flower lights that really does remind me of Prom Night photo booths set up to catch groups and couples.

There are 4 poses built in (click to sit on the flower urns) and this is the easiest prop to use  – giving each person a menu with the option to adjust positions.

This would easily double as a sweet set for engagement or wedding photos.

#73 Oslo Up in Lights

Marquesse Oslo 1

Recently I had the privilege walking for Marquesse in the Let’s Summer Fashion Show.

This amazingly customizable outfit OSLO has 2 parts – the coat & shorts and the boots. The boot HUD has 5 colors to change boot, sole and laces. The coat and shorts HUD has 5 colors PLUS a color picker  – so the coat and shorts can be whatever combination you can dream up.

I chose to keep the boots and coat white and shade the shorts to pick up the pink in this amazing OLD Dragonfly Hair by Boudoir from the 2012 Crazy Hair Hunt.

– If anyone ever reads this who has a dream to organize something that will be remembered by the participants FOREVER – please please organise another CRAZY HAIR HUNT
