Walk In The Dream But Dream No More

now we walk in the dream
but dream no more
to live a life in love the only thing in common was
we knew there was somethin’ more
now we walk in the dream
but dream no more

Live – We Walk In The Dream

It’s December and time to put on those formals for the Christmas Ball! Allure Couture has a new tuxedo release for us guys, available right now at the SL Christmas Expo! I’ll let Mahogany tell you more about the Elsa Gown in her blog.

The Steven Tuxedo is a complete outfit. Available in Black, Green, Purple and Red, or in a fatpack in a 8 texture choice Hud. I’m showing the Aqua, which you can find in the fatpack. The tux is fitted for Belleza Jake, Classic XL-XS, Signature Gianni and Slink bodies. The Steven Dress Shoes fits Belleza, Classic, Signature and Slink feet. You can find the tux at the SL Christmas Expo event and 100% of its proceeds goes to Relay For Life and the fight against children’s cancer.

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.

Pawrenting

I’m a puppy pappa to two Dachshund girls and when I’m not on Second Life they keep me occupied with walks, grooming, playing, feeding, cuddling… They follow me everywhere and are the most loyal and loving companions you can get. If you didn’t already know, being a puppy parent is a big responsibility and takes a lot of work and time. Don’t ever consider getting a dog for the cuteness value. The little, yes adorable, puppers are going to depend on you being there for them every day for many years. I can go on and on about this, but I’ll stop here and move on to the items I’m supposed to talk about!

The Auster Patio Set & Fireplace by CHEZ MOI is a recent release and is now available at the mainstore and marketplace. Adult or PG version, both the sofa and the chair are full of bento animations. The ottoman contains 10 animations and the fireplace has both single and couples (PG and Adult) animations! Texture changer HUD included for both the patio set and the fireplace.

Both the Hans Sweater by Allure Couture and the Havoc Jeans by L&B I’ve blogged before but it doesn’t hurt to repeat a good thing! Both items are available at their respective mainstores.

Unmistakable

Holding hands with you is like a promise that, if even for a brief moment or a few hours, we don’t have to face the world alone.

Holding hands. A simple act with profound impact. Once you took my hand in yours I knew I never wanted to let go.

Hans fits: Classic L,M,S, Aestheitc, Belleza Jake, Signature Geralt & Gianni, Slink and TMP. Shoes fit: Classic (Unrigged so can be adjusted) Belleza, Signature and Slink.

Mr. and Mrs. Bones

My love for you is a journey,
starting at forever,
and ending at never.

Mr. and Mrs. Bones are complete avatars, sold separately, newly released at the Allure Couture mainstore.

Mr. Bones is a handsome gentleman with a debonair flair. Comes with top hat and a bow tie. Mrs. Bones is an elegant old girl, wearing a jeweled fur hat, matching stole and pearl necklace.

The avatars are easily added and removed, just alpha out your body and remove your head. I suggest you save what you are currently wearing as an outfit before changing, for easy recovering of your old look. Mr. and Mrs. Bones do NOT have eyes, however, we opted to keep our peepers in. You know. So we could see…

Mr. & Mrs. Bones are available in the Allure Couture Mainstore in world.

The Fae and the Huntsman Pt. 1

The Fae came down the mountain,
her heart soft summer rain,
for she had fallen Fae in love,
with a huntsman on the plain.

The Fae came down the mountain,
her song soft as a sigh,
and sang him deep, to faerie sleep,
with a Fae soft lullaby.

Stephen Howard

The Forest Fae and The Huntsman; both amazing outfits by Allure Couture are available right now at the Heathens Court event until October 31.

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
