Respite With Dragonflies

“Nope” pretty much sums up how I felt about doing anything today. With temperatures hovering around 45C (113F) it was a good day to sit very still with a fan blowing full-force on me. It was even too hot to log into Second Life for most of the day.

Eventually, the mercury dipped to a brisk 40C and I launched my viewer to try to do a bit of work. Although trying out pretty new things isn’t really a hardship, it does take a bit of effort to put the look together.

I am showcasing both fashion, beauty and home & garden in this post. With both The Liaison Collaborative and The Seasons Story opening soon, it is a good opportunity to give you a sneak preview of some of the goodies to come.

I am wearing the [ session ] Phoebe Tone02 Catwa Applier for this photo. I hadn’t worn a Catwa head for a while, but this skin was just too pretty to pass up. My eye shadow and lipstick are choices that come with the applier and I chose to add both freckles and moles – also options with this applier. The only variance from the original are my eyebrows, as this set doesn’t come with red brows (light and dark only). However, it does have a no-brow option, so I was able to stay true to my ginger roots (pun intended). The shading is really lovely on this skin and I love the shape of the lips.

Also from TLC are these great jeans from Entice. They are designed to work with Mid feet; a rarity in most designs. If you tend to wear this foot position, you really should grab these jeans. They come in the traditional denim shades, plus some brighter colours to work with almost any top in your wardrobe. I did try them with high feet and they still work well, but they aren’t designed to compliment flat feet.

On to the decor: Kuro will be releasing this lovely basket chair at the upcoming round of The Seasons Story. There are both PG and Adult versions, and you can complete the set with a basket lamp and bed.

Since these events aren’t yet open, you should visit the [ keke ] mainstore or Marketplace in the meantime. The beautiful dragonflies come in a fatpack of 5 colours for one low price.

They will turn the most pedestrian garden into a place of whimsical respite; just what is needed on an ultra-hot day.

Christmas Kisses


I don’t have much time to chat – I’ve got to head off to work in just a few minutes, but I wanted to leave you to feast your eyes on some beautiful things. Please read the credits – that is where the real story is to be told, as in where to find them for yourself!

Do check out my Sugar Platforms from (again), the chair, which is in the background but oh so perfect for curling up in or against from Warm Animations at FaMESHed and my hair and outfit, available at Winter Solstice in the Mystic Realms.


Oh, and if you didn’t grab the December edition of Deco(c)rate, you can still visit the headquarters to grab this fabulous package, including this elegant version of a Charlie Brown Christmas tree from [ keke ], and there are more pretty home and garden decor items snuck into the photo, available at The Liaison Collaborative.

They’re all almost as good as Christmas kisses.
