Christmas Wishes (Showcase)

Hello Lovelies! Oh, it has been so long since I've had a showcase! I was on a little break and now I am back and here to show you all the best things! Now that I am back, expect a post at least once, maybe sometimes twice a week!
For all the Americans here, did you celebrate thanksgiving? Did you stuff yourself like you stuffed the turkey? Mmmm food! Now its almost time to make the new years resolution to lose all the weight you gained from thanksgiving dinner and the soon to come Christmas cookies and cinnamon rolls. We sure are a silly bunch!
Anyways, on to the showcase!
 {.LAGEENY f a s h i o n.} came out with this adorable crop sweater called the Aylin Top and ugh! It just looks so comfy! Plus, it has a hud with so many options to change the sweater and the tie. You know how I love my color change huds! Aaaaand how I love my fitted mesh things, so guess what? YES! It is fitted for maitreya, freya, isis, slink hourglass, slink physique, and venus. Holy cow, right? This is a brand new top from {.LAGEENY f a s h i o n.} so be sure to check them out!
Rezology has been doing something great! Ever see someone on SL that is all one color? No, its not your graphics card! It means their complexity is too high. You can change it of course but its a wee bit annoying, isn't it? Well, rezology has been lowering their complexities on ALL their hairs so you don't end up looking like a one color blob to everyone else. So, show all your colors! You deserve to shine in all your rainbow glory! This hair is called Tulip and I love it because its so soft and adorable! Like me!

Innocence Upheld

Innocence...
 
It is something everyone wants and yet it is something that so easily slips away as we get older.
Remember the innocence of being a child? When just going outside and running around could be the highlight of your day?
But innonce fades as we get older. Do we let it go ourselves, or does it naturally just slip away leaving us unaware until one day we realise it is gone.
And once it is gone, can we ever get it back?
Nowadays we want kids to grow up so fast. Electronics and outside forces push this idea that it will be better when they are older. But is it really better? 
"Dont' cry" "Be a big girl." "Don't be such a baby." 
Really? These are the things we say to children? Let them cry. Let them act their age. Soon that innocence will be gone. 
Treasure it while you can.

"As it withers
Brittle it shakes
Can you whisper
As it crumbles and breaks
As you shiver
Count up all your mistakes
Pair of forgivers
Let go before it's too late
 Can you whisper"

Just One More Kiss Goodnight

Hello Lovelies!
Another post from The Old Fair here so you can see that they really do have something for everyone.
Now, I don't usually do pictures like this because I'm actually a very shy person, but I still find the human body to be a beautiful thing and I think there is no shame in showing the skin you were born with. I just prefer to cover up most of the time.
And with that aside, lets get down to what I'm showing off! All of the items I will be mentions are part of The Old Fair which starts on the 11th and runs until the 25th so you still have a few days to save up some lindens!
First of all the pose. How can you make a picture without a pose, right? [evoLove] will be at The Old Fair showcasing a three pose set called Noir and these poses... ooh la la! They are sexy! This pose is the first in the set and it is just so sensual and romantic even if it is just for one person!
Secondly, InsomniaStore, or just *IS* has come out with these amazing amazing fur stoles in long, like the one I'm wearing in Candy Pink, or a shorter collar version which would be super cute on a blouse. You all know how much I love fake fur. Emphasis on fake because I also love my furry friends! Last round of the arcade a played a machine probably about 20 times for a fur coat and still hadn't gotten it! So the fact that I can have these fur stoles really makes my day. You can do so much with them too. Dress up an evening gown, be sexy, play as a frisky flapper, etc etc etc! Now you can get them in black, copper fox, or candy pink like I'm wearing. The chain is color changeable and they all have a resizer but it fit me fine without having to adjust anything.
And last, but definitely not least, the last hair from -FABIA-. It is called Daisy and omg omg omg! Anyone getting The Great Gatsby vibes from it? I certainly am. It is so Daisy from the Great Gatsby. The really cool thing about this hair is that it also comes with a shawl, that is removable. 
Check it out! You can find all of these items at The Old Fair - November 11th to November 2th.

I Hear Your Voice When The Wind Blows

Hello Lovelies! While I'm not back permanently I wanted to give you guys a few pictures from an upcoming fair: The Old Fair.
I am super excited to be a part of this fair because it celebrates all kinds of old things and features poses, clothes, hair, skin, everything from a ton of designers all across the grid! Now, The Old Fair opens on 11/11/2016 and closes on 11/25/2016. So you have time to do your research and save up!
Second Life really needs more medieval/renaissance style clothes and Beyond Persuasion design delivers with this beautiful dress. With sizes ranging from XXS - L, Maitreya, fitted mesh, and even Slink physique and hourglass there is a size for everyone. They even have a separate outfit for men. Now that is awesome!
You know how I love to make stories with poses right? Well, ~Reel Poses comes out with three new poses, and one of the reasons I really, really love them is the fact that even though they are swing poses, they come with the swing! I don't know why some pose shops sell poses without the prop its supposed to be used on, that always confused me! So when I opened these poses to see they came with the tree and swing I nearly squealed with delight! I'm using the Sweet Swinging Pose in this picture but they also have an adorable one to be used with a significant other called Hung Up On you and a friend one called Complicity. So definitely check those out!
-FABIA- came out with two new hairs. The one I'm wearing here is called Lana and at first I wasn't too sure about it honestly. But then I paired it with the dress and OMG! Perfect old southern style belle, right? I love it and I think it fits the theme style perfectly and also is great for role-playing.
Ok, so remember - The Old Fair opens on November 11th and closes on the 25th. I can't wait to see you all there!
XOXO

"The longer I stand here
The louder the silence
I know that you're gone but sometimes I swear that I hear
Your voice when the wind blows
So I talk to the shadows
Hoping you might be listening 'cos I want you to know
It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said
And as I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said"

The Boudoir

Hello Lovelies!
One of the things I love to do on second life is decorating! It is so gratifying to have your own little place and make it your own. So today, I wanted to show you one of my own little places. A place I can relax and be me and just hang out and relax.
One of the easiest ways for me to decorate is with gatchas so many of these items are from past gatcha events or things like that. But one thing I do want to point out is the canvas prints leaning up against the wall and the book pile next to them. These are from Sara Wayland - a great up and coming designer. She made these full perm so say you wanted the books to be Harry Potter. You can do that! And in fact, I might! The picture frames are full perm as well and they also come with I believe 4 'pre-painted' sets. One of the 'pre-painted' sets are also blank so its perfect for an artists room!
Anyways, there is a lot to cover for this picture so lets get straight to the credits!
XOXO

Don't Speak

Silence.
Is it really golden?

It can be. But it can also be so loud. 

I personally try not to speak (when around others that I don't trust) unless I have something important to say. Too many people spout lies from their mouths. And the biggest lie is when you say you love someone. The word love is thrown around so much. Love is not meant to be a word to throw around whenever you want to. You can like something, admire something/someone, even adore it/them. But please, stop saying love unless you really, truly know the meaning behind the word.
If you would lay down your own life to save them. If you would run across a mine field just to hold them. If you would wake up in the middle of the night and go to them because they need you. Then you love them. 
But if you just want to be near them once in a while or think they make you look better or you wouldn't give your life for theirs then please stop saying you love them. You admire them. You like them. And that's okay too.
Love grows. It takes time. And patience. It is a beautiful flower that needs nourishment and time to grow. Don't diminish that preciousness by being so eager to say "love".
And just because you say you love them... it doesn't make them love you.
Just a thought.

XOXO

Showcase: Serendipity - Falling

Hello Beauties!
It's that time again! Serendipity has come out with new poses at the Pose Lover And Friends Event. If you love poses or like taking pictures, I highly suggest you take a look. Serendipity has quite a few poses there that I will show you throughout the month, and there are a ton of other designers in this event as well.
Now, the event runs from September 9th to midnight on September 25th.
The pose I'm showing you today is from a set of three, all poses in the pack are at the bottom of this post of course! I love this one. Falling isn't really graceful, is it? I fall down all the time because of plain clumsiness, plus some medical issues. And I can tell you it is not graceful! But these poses are beautiful, graceful, falling poses that are perfect for sleeping, dreaming, or even supernatural style photos. I tried to add a bit of all of that in my photo and I hope you all enjoy it!
XOXO
