Afternoon At The Pool

So I’m just gonna say it, I’ve seen pools over the years in SL and they normally suck.  They not only look terrible or dated but they also never come with anything to actually do, aka no animations.  Well,  that was until I saw the new pool from Pixel Mode, which is absolutely amazing!   It’s probably the most realistic pool I’ve seen in SL to date, and not only that,  it comes loaded with singles and couples animations along with diving and swimming animations!  Around the pool Tya left some deck space for you to place your chairs,tables and decor items as well as places you can throw in your own landscaping.  AND, just when you thought it could not get better she also built a surround for it so it can be used up in a skydome or you can remove it and terraform your land around it.  You can also mod it and add your own land texture to use the one that you use! It’s currently available at the Love to Decorate event and I can’t stress how much you need to check this out!  All the other goodies I used to showcase the pool, including what I’m wearing, can be found below the pic; and if you need a larger view just click the picture!

A Sexy Night Out

flickr look 726Hi there! Tonight I have a quick blog for you featuring a very sexy look that I put together.  My short little dress with the almost not there back is a collaboration between Cynful and Lil’Lace, that comes in a large assortment of colors and to fit several different mesh bodies along with standard sizes. My gorgeous big hair is from Exile from The Arcade and my equally gorgeous skin is SummerV3 from Glam Affair that can be found at the newest Collabor88.  Cae just released another beautiful, yet understated, collar that comes in a regular and also an open collar version.  Helping me stand a bit taller are the Callisto Slingbacks from Livalle.  Finally I am using new poses from Mien Poses called Gala.  Enjoy and happy shopping!!

Taste My Cotton Candy

I’ve been in SL going on nine years now and I have never really liked myself as a blond, except for today.  Not sure exactly why but I couldn’t get over how sexy I looked with this shade of blond, maybe it was the outfit? Since it looked so good I went with it to show you newness to show you from Cae, Bounce This Poses and Alouette along with semi-newness from Blacklace.  Cae has just released another collar and like her others I adore it; gorgeous, subtle and understated. It comes with a open collar and regular version and a hud that allows you to change metal colors.  My sexy lingerie is a past TOSL from Blacklace that you can find on Marketplace.  My new pose can be found at the latest TDR Fusion while the beautiful dressing screen behind me is texture change and can be found at Woodland Treasures.

My Visit to Sacred

Very talented blogger, Sophia Harlow, opened up her private sim, Sacred, for the month of October that others could enjoy it and take pics.  I can’t even begin to tell you how beautiful her sim is, in my opinion is it one of the prettiest I have seen in my over eight years on the grid. It was so peaceful and you could tell that each area, each piece was picked and chosen with care.  Being one that loves attention to detail I greatly appreciated all the work that she has put into her sim and I’m so thankful she opened it up for others to share.  By the many pics I took and how large this post is you can probably tell how truly inspired I was and I hope that my pics can do her land just a little bit of justice.  I also discovered how sweet Sophia is when I met her one night while taking pics at her cafe.  She sent an IM and offered to change permissions so that I could rez if I needed to and even though I wouldn’t need her to until the next day when Etherian could join me, she changed it right then so when I returned I could use my couples poses.

flickr look 600One of my favorite spots was this great little bathhouse that she had at her landing point.  Such a pretty place to relax and as Etherian walked me down the path we also passed by a fantastic little gazebo filled with comfy places to sit, cuddle, read or daydream by a roaring fire.

flickr look 600-7As we made our way down the path to her cafe we walked under a canopy of trees and just past a bridge made from a hollowed log(fantastic)  Etherian had me stop so that he could take a pic of me.  I absolutely adore paths and roads like this in RL or SL, never been sure why but I always love their covered beauty.

flickr look 600-4The back deck of the cafe overlooks a quaint river that runs between it and her private home.  This was by far my favorite spot on the whole sim.  There was something about the scenery that I was drawn to.  I loved it so much I could not decide which version of the pic I loved more so I included them both.

flickr look 600-5I also loved her home, since we could also roam through that as well.  She had so many places in it that made me go WOW I can’t even tell you.  Since it was her private space I didn’t feel right taking pics because I feel that isn’t my place to do so, but trust me that gal has mad decorating skills.  Well, we know that from her fantastic blog posts.

flickr look 600-2As we were hanging out at the cafe enjoying the view while sipping coffee I guess I got a little too hopped up on the caffeine because Etherian decided it was time to cut me off.  As you can see he snatched my big ole cup away from me and to my shock was not wanting to give it back.  Finally I managed to retrieve it despite his tall frame and that’s when he decided to throw me over his shoulder and carry me out of there!  But I didn’t want to go!  I wanted to live there gosh darn it!  Much thanks again to Sophia for letting us enjoy her sim, we both enjoyed it very much.  Everything we are both wearing and all poses used can be found below after this last pic.
