Summer is for Preppies

When I don’t know what to wear, I usually default to a preppy look. Unpretentiously preppy, that is and here’s a preppy summer outfit for you from Hoorenbeek; the Myles outfit is a classic men’s outfit with the blue shirt and off-white chino shorts, accompanied with the leather tab navy belt, the light brown Norfolk deck shoes, leather- and beaded bracelets and the tortoise Wayfarer sunglasses (not shown) – Look casual and formal but casual, yeh!

Time in a Bottle

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
‘Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

Jim Croce – Time in a Bottle

Sari-Sari is participating at the June round of Anthem with three super romantic couple poses. Mahogany and I are using the Kiss01 pose. Sari-Sari’s couple poses are easy to use, just sit on the pose ball and the Adjust menu appears so there’s no need to edit and move the pose balls.

  • HPMD* Garden Tree10
  • HPMD* Shrub
  • Konoha – Wild Natoma Grass

I’ve looked around enough to know That you’re the one I want to go Through time with…

Love Grows Here

Nature is beautiful, both in the wild and in the tamed garden. I find yard work to be very therapeutic; everyday stress just washes away as I tend plants, dig, mow and rake. And afterwards you get to enjoy it even more when you sit down together with the love of your life, savour a cold brew and watch things grow.

Showcasing the Sari-Sari Potting Table; Original mesh and textures. Includes Wooden Folding Table, Improvised Seedling Tool Can, Potting Soil, Seed Starter Tray, Seed Starter Tray (Chili Pepper), The Seed, and Tin Watering Can, all at 1 Li each. Also included is a holdable version of “The Seed” with original bento hold pose for m/f and Dirty Hands BOM layer. Available at the Collabor88 Garden Party-themed March round!

She’s My Summer Breeze

She’s everything I need on this planet Earth. Material things can’t compare to what this girl is worth. With her kinda love, I will go far. The way I feel, I could reach the stars.

The Reflections – She’s My Summer Breeze

Sari-Sari has released two new super adorable couple poses; the ‘Dance III’ and ‘Smooch’ couple bento poses are found at this round of Anthem. This is the ‘Dance III’ pose. We had a very easy time setting it up. The two pose balls are not linked, so rezz the pose in Edit mode (right click and edit something then while in Edit mode, rezz the pose), sit on your pose ball and adjust the height and position to where you want it. Close the Edit menu. Adjust each pose individually through the Adjust menu. We had to adjust very little in this pose but sometimes if you’re not happy with the placement of a bodypart, you want to adjust it further using a pose maker tool.

Camping

A collaboration between DiMi’s and Angel’s Art Pose has resulted in this adorable camping backdrop/scene. The scene contains everything you see in the picture and there are 6 lovely couple poses in the tree trunk. The scene is 96LI and Copy/Mod which means you can move stuff around and resize them as you wish. You can buy the complete scene or separate pieces (Copy only). This scene was first available at La Vie En Pose but since I’m lagging behind a little after my vacation, you can now find it in DiMi’s mainstore.

Meanwhile, in Norway…

If you read my previous blog post, you already know I have snow where I live. So, if Mahogany suddenly were able to teleport over, we would certainly NOT stay outside in the snow very long we would mostly have hygge-time inside by the fireplace but…

we chose an outdoor scene however for showcasing the new releases for her and him by Allure Couture. The Lange Sweater Outfit for him comes in your choice of Fatpacks. The complete outfit with 10 texture huds for both the pants and sweater, a Pants Fatpack or a Sweater Fatpack. Boots come only in the complet outfit fatpack. The pants and sweater are fitted for Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Legacy, Signature Gianni and Slink bodies. Boots are fitted for Belleza, Signature and Slink. It’s available in the Allure Couture mainstore. For info about the Em Sweater Outfit for her, see Mahogany’s post The First Snow.

The Fae and the Huntsman Pt. 2

The huntsman dreamed he had a dream,
of endless Summer skies,
of silver wings, and faerie rings,
of a queen with opal eyes.

Stephen Howard

We all know this doesn’t end well for the Huntsman, right? I might do a third picture for the final part of the poem… Maybe. For now, let’s let him dream the most beautiful dream. And yeah, the guy behind his avatar. Me. Is a hopeless romantic.

This dreamy scene we’re in is called ‘Enchanted Glade’ and it is made by DiMi’s in a collaboration with AAP* Angel’s Art Pose. The fawn and the white horse are animated on touch and the brown horse contains 6 couple poses. Available now at La Vie En Pose.

Everything apart from our avatars and the hill in the background is included in the scene and rezzed together; ready for a magical photo shoot in an instant!

I Fell In Love With You One Night In September

you looked at me and smiled
then you said something
made me blush and tongue tied
I lost my mind that day
crazy in love they say
when a fling becomes a thing
becomes more than just a wild ride
it is a graceful ballet
a sultry Jazz medley
when our two worlds collide
the beat will go on forever,
just sing.

Sander

Ok, so it may have happened in October – the actual falling in love part, but we met in-world for the first time a year ago today, on September 27. What a wonderful year it’s been, M. You are amazing. Thank you for being you and thank you for loving me the way you do. ❤ Happy Anniversary, my love. The first of many.

Whatever Lola Wants

Jess Poses Couple 10

I’ve been in the mood for jazz, the slow sultry kind, ever since Mahogany started performing in Second Life. Whatever Lola Wants is one of my favourite songs that she sings, along with Black Coffee, Fever, and she does an amazing Why Don’t You Do Right *sighs*, and the list goes on.

On Friday Mahogany is not only doing her regular show at Gypsy’s Jazz & Blues Club, she’s doing a one time only event at Lust Ultra Lounge. It’s going to be something special and I can hardly wait! This is where I would link to Mahogany’s live performances schedule but that page is still under construction. You can however send me or Mahogany an IM in-world if you’re interested in knowing more about her singing!

Rhythm

…So you see our very existence is a rhythm, of waking and sleeping, eating and moving, and that’s all we’re doing. Just consider what we do everyday. What’s it all about? Does it really mean anything? Does it go anywhere? It’s just we keep wanting to do this kind of a ‘hoop-dee-da’. So you can get a certain vision of life, where everything is seen to be a complex pattern of rhythm.

Alan Watts

New at Jess Poses Marketplace are 7 Hip Hop Bento poses; there are 2 couple poses and 5 male poses! Mahogany and I are finding the rhythm with the Hip Hop Couple 1 pose right here.
