Show me slowly what I only know the limits of

dance

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Leonard Cohen – Dance me to the end of love

I went to Kuro in Motion the other day to pick up some poses. Her poses are unique and always inspire certain feelings in me and I had to pick up this one and take a photo. I really like the way it came out. It made me think of this Leonard Cohen song which is a favorite.

So I put on some stuff that I got from Uber. This hair is from Olive, the dress is Tres Blah, the necklace is from Yummy and the shoes are from Just Designs. The skin, from Glam Affair is at Uber too! The ears are from Mandala. On my malt, he’s wearing a lovely hot pink suit from Zaara and the Wing Tip Brogues from Kauna.

Ophelia

aria

Aria brings a new living room set to Uber’s Opulence round called Ophelia. It’s a lower land impact furniture set that is very elegant looking and quite opulent! There are six fabric bases, and six variations for each cushion too and three different types of metal for the metalic parts. The coffee table even has animations and the rug has nine different textures. It’s a very versatile set that would be complimentary to any home.

All the items are materials ready and are copy/mod. You can try the set out for yourself here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Uber/135/128/27

It’s 2015

A List of Random and Unrelated Things to Remember
by Victoria Erickson

Time heals.
Mountain winds sound exactly like ocean waves.
You are worth everything now.
Walls can be destroyed.
The sun always rises (and is always beautiful).
Children know the answers.
There is music in everything.
Logic doesn’t produce magic.
Somewhere, somebody loves you.
You don’t need to choose mediocre when fire exists.
The moon orchestrates our nights and tides.
Trees can grow through rock.
Your heart expands when it’s broken.
You should do it now.

Let’s pretend that I posted this a few days ago. I have been sick with a bad cold and well my blogging has gotten pushed back a bit. Sways has this pose prop out for Fifty Linden Friday today and it has room for four people to take a picture on it but I just used my own pose from Adorkable to stand in front of it, and added some balloons from Tres Blah and a Champagne bucket from Keke.

I am wearing new stuff from Uber. A new skin from Glam Affair, clothing from Tres Blah and a “Faux” fur shawl from Foxes. Heels from Reign and I am also wearing new hair from Magika. (not at Uber)

With all that being said, I hope it’s a great year for you!

Black & Gold

blackandgold

Uber has opened up it’s Opulence round and I’m just loving so far what I’ve seen and have been able to buy so far!

Truth made this hair called Minerva that comes with a head jewel that you can change colors. This is one of my favorite hairs right now. This skin from Glam Affair is also available at Uber.

Eudora and Enfant Terrible collaborated to make this corset, which the texturing on it is very pretty! I love how rich and alive the colors look.

Over at Fameshed my friend Cae made this Mezzaluna necklace. You can wear it with one tier or two. You can also change the metals and beads with a hud. This pose is from Flowey.

I had my dear friend Pixelated Cyberstar – (unknown to her) pose with me while we snuggled this morning on this really cute bed from Lisp at Collabor88. The build is also from Scarlet Creative at Collabor88 and the little tables and plants at the side of the bed are from Tarte at the Arcade.

I actually didn’t do much to touch these pictures up and the body works well in pictures and so far really well in the clothing that I’ve worn with it. If I had to pick a favorite Mesh body.. it would be this one.

This is a small look into my home in Second Life and some of the things that I like to do. I love to bake, take naps, decorate my tree and wrap presents! Many of the items in my home are from my favorite furniture stores.

I love Junk..well because I work for them but they also make great items! I also like getting little things at the Arcade – I loved Dust Bunny’s set and 8f8 this year. I love the tree that Laq Home Decor released last year as well as this fun ladder tree from Botanical and the Dust Bunny one. Our home in Second Life this year has many trees!

I also have things in the house from Boogers!, Floorplan, Dysfunctional Designs, Trompe Loeil, Mudhoney, Alouette, Mish Mish, and a bunch of others. If you see something you love here don’t hesitate to ask where it’s from! Do stay for a cookie too.

I am also using the Dust Bunny Tree from the Arcade in the background and the rare pink manor from Rageworks. Most of the poses are from Slouch and they are just single poses.

Joyful

Hello! Today is my 8th Rez Day in Second Life. Who would have thought I would have been here for so long. What I have today is some things to show off from The Liaison Collaborative! I’m wearing a new outfit that is there from Fishy Strawberry. It’s perfectly casual and very much something I’d wear around the house for the holidays. The pose that I’m using is also from TLC – and it’s from Bauhaus Movement who has has an impressive wide range of poses.

The furnishings that you see (the rug and the joy sign are from Tarte) The tree’s are from Tarte’s Gacha because TLC this month has an area for Gacha’s and the snowflakes on the window are from Plethora.

My hair is from Wasabi Pills, my shoes are from L.Warwick at TMD and the build is Scarlet Creative.

I did a bit of an informational post here: https://sylviaolivier.wordpress.com/2014/12/18/the-loft-oriana-bathroom-set/ on the Oriana bathroom set (it will also tell you where everything is from but most of this is just from the new bathroom set) from the loft.

I also wanted to share some of the pictures that I did with the lovely Autumn Hykova as well and to thank her for her patience in posing with me.
