Enya

1-enya-sm

I would probably feel a bit uneasy walking across this wooden bridge through the fog, but not Enya. She has not only the courage to forge her way into the swirling mist but to do it wearing this daring outfit. Enya is the latest release from Salt & Pepper for We < 3 Roleplay, which runs through November 30th. Its soft fabric and belted straps give her the confidence to move confidently forward. I paired it with these kick ass Arwen boots, a previous release from Salt & Pepper (available at the main store).

I’m sure you’re going to be seeing a lot of this hair by *ARGRACE* (if you haven’t already). Rika Oyen makes, in my opinion, the best editorial hair in Second Life. While KOHAKU has a relatively high ARC (31,308), it still isn’t unmanageable for most viewer settings to handle. And oh, so worth it for the result!

Be bold. Be brave. Be like Enya.

Just Breathe

1-just-breathe-sm

Slowly. In for a count of ten and then release. And repeat.

It always amazes me how well that trick works to calm and settle. Whether it is stress, anger or pain, just breathe. It won’t solve your problems, but it will make them a bit more bearable.

Pretty dresses make things more bearable, too. This striking leather mini from Apple May Designs for the September round of We < 3 Roleplay fits the bill perfectly. You have until the 30th to pick it up, so don’t panic.

Just breathe.

Retreat

1 Retreat sm

Creating a place of retreat can be elaborate or as simple as finding a quiet spot where you can simply reflect and recharge. It can be in a garden, on a mountaintop or simply inside your mind. It’s your choice – whatever makes sense to you.

I have created this retreat not just within a garden, but with beautiful fall roses around me. You can win them at the September round of The Chapter Four in the gacha machine by [ keke ]. There are 10 commons and one rare, all equally as lovely as each other. Dressing for the occasion also enhances the experience. You can find the dress by Salt & Pepper at We < 3 Roleplay and the shoes by Apple May Designs on Marketplace.

Find your special retreat; find your own peace.
