Women's Fashion: A long wait, indeed....



I think the thing I hate the most about planning a party is the wait between the time you 
get all ready and the time people start showing up. I have found this is no different in Second Life.

Review of Virtual Fashion and Home Decor

I always get it all ready way ahead of time and end up standing there watching the clock. It takes all my will power not to start texting or calling my best friends asking where they are. Of course they take longer than I do to get ready for a party... they are all divas.

Review of Virtual Fashion and Home Decor

Then I pour myself a drink.. stand around longer... and wait more, going over everything I have set up.. Do I have it all out....did I forget anything...oh god.. I hope I didn't. Drink more...

Review of Virtual Fashion and Home Decor

Pour myself another drink.. go over the evenings plans in my head again... for the hundredth time. Start getting a bit depressed because no one has shown up yet. My friends should be here early..they know I need support! They are all trying to be fashionably late I am sure.

Review of Virtual Fashion and Home Decor

Pour myself another drink to calm my nerves ... feel a little dizzy. I shouldn't have drank on an empty stomach. But if I ate.. I would mess up my carefully laid out  cocktails for the party. Oh..the irony!

Review of Virtual Fashion and Home Decor

I think of the cocktails just waiting for me .... teasing me with their perfect flavors....


Laid out looking, oh so pretty... one plate and another drink wouldn't hurt would it....

Review of Virtual Fashion and Home Decor

But no.. I must resist.. even those the sushi calls.. I know. I will just have another drink.. it will deaden the hunger... look at the clock again.. where are they!


Review of Virtual Fashion and Home Decor

Halfway through the sixth drink I will sit up and wonder... did I send the invites out...did they get them.. and panic until my guests finally arrive. Then they will tell me I look frazzled and shouldn't have worked so hard... If only they knew!

Virtual Living Space: The desert is in my blood....


I have one last offering before the Fantasy Faire closes it's door. I decided to set up home in a different environment than my normal forest settings. It's so rare we see any desert homes featured.  So when I saw Independent  Objects Moroccan Homes I had to feature a few. As, always see the shopping list at the end for details on the items and my opinions. Remember tomorrow is the last day for the Fantasy Faire 2015.

Men's Fashion: A Noble Warrior...



Hi everyone, I have a few more Fantasy Faire goodies for you to check out. I wanted to share a bit for the guys. though Mel tells me I make girly guys..so I hope all you girly guys out there like what I have for you today! And if you are not "girly" I hope you find something you like too!

Secondlife Fantasy Fashion Review, Elven Warrior.

I fell in love with the unicorn steed from  White Oak Equines. I couldn't resist shooting a shot of a noble warrior feeding an apple to his beautiful steed. What else does a girl dream of but unicorns and noble knights? The unicorn has a lot of options via a hud, see the shopping list below for more info. I also really liked the detailing on the shield by Completely oBVious. The tattered cape is a awesome accent for any harden warrior to sport. It comes with a back or arm version.

Secondlife Fantasy Fashion Review, Elven Warrior.

I also really enjoyed playing with the "for the Living (sword)" by Fallen Arms. It comes in several sizes and a HUD for drawing or sheathing. You can wear it on your hip or back. I think I liked the back position best. It went so well with my new shield.


Secondlife Fantasy Fashion Review, Elven Warrior.

I was very excited for Soul to release their Chompers in the Eros line of Kissers for men. I absolutely love the razor edged teeth. They are perfect for my demonkin and mermaids. Nox has a great bloody mouth tattoo also. It goes perfect with these teeth. You can see the tattoo on an earlier post. They are in the same stall at the Fantasy faire as Soul.

I have nothing special to say about this photo. I just liked it a lot and wanted to share it. If you are curious on the background decorations, I will be posting about those tomorrow.
