Exotic

A Bird of Paradise

Sometimes it's such a joy to simply find beauty in our world.  This is such a vision in all the rainbow colors, with the exoticism of the snake wrapped round and the elaborate headdress.  It's like the spirit of the Rain Forest come to life (and she might be a bit peeved about clear cutting and global warming and stuff, but I think we're safe.)  

You can become this exotic vision as well.  Just visit SWANK and you'll find it.  You'll find LOTS of free gifts for the season as well.  (I felt like a robber bird!)  


OH! and I almost forgot!  I am wearing the new mesh head from the Genus Project.  There are two versions, the original and this one, which is called "Baby Face".  I created a shape that was very close to "me" and here it is.  I'm still learning how to use the hud, but it's all very intuitive, and there's lots of help for it.  Maybe try something NEW for the holiday!

Wishing you all the blessings of this holiday season.  May it bring joy, love, laughter, and friendship!  (And amazing shopping excursions!)

Home for Christmas

If Only In My Dreams

Living far from family, and dear friends is probably MOST difficult at these times.  I miss the banter, the give and take, the traditions. So I decorate and create my holiday home in a virtual medium.  My home in Second Life is very important to me.  It is my "inner home", if you will.  I create what would be my ideal, and inhabit it, through my avatar, but the emotions, the feelings of having a space that is "home", translate to the real world.  So, dream your holiday, and who knows.  Some day that dream could become your reality.

Christmas Lights

Sometimes Get Tangled!

I love this time of year, have I said that?  There's shopping for gifts, christmas cookies, carols, hot chocolate with marshmallows, wrapping presents, mistletoe, and my favorite, christmas lights!  So, as I was getting ready to decorate the house I found these lights and playfully wrapped them round me.  "Can you help me, baby?"  I called.  I have never seen him so enthusiastic about holiday decorating before!  Happy holidays!


A great holiday gift for ME would be if you clicked "follow" up in the upper right hand corner of this blog!  You don't even have to gift wrap it!  You can click the tab that says "finding Rhaenys" and follow me in all sorts of other places as well.

Snow Angel


Who Says You Can't Wear White in Winter!

Do you remember the "fashion police" that used to ban white after Labor Day?  Turns out, that was pretty much limited to the States, and when I moved to Europe imagine my surprise to see people wearing white all the time!  (That and men comfortable with wearing pink, because after all, it's a color, not a gender! but that's a whole 'nother post.  Any model volunteers?) So, when I went to Fameshed, one of my favorite shopping excursions, I saw this gorgeous dress, by Kaithleen's, and perused the colors and "click" selected white.  


I also found this fabulous hair at Fameshed, by Elikatira.  You can change the colors of the headband, and have the hair come over a shoulder or back.  

The makeup is by AlaskaMetro, lipstick, eyeshadow and nails.  I love Alaska Metro because her makeup is wearable, affordable, and simply gorgeous.  You can pick this palette up at Uber!

I dug into my inventory to find the rest that you can see and, as usual, all style notes are below.  This is an outfit I am going to "save" because I really do like it, and can see me wearing it to holiday parties or to DJ in.

Let it SNOW!


The Weather is so Delightful!

A true child of the north!  The snow drifted and blew, the cold nipped at your nose and the point of your chin.  Yet, there in the bright reflection of sun on snow she was in her element.  the pom poms on her hat bounced cheerfully, and she laughed as she brushed snow from her skates.  For some, winter is their element, and she'd certainly found hers!



I honestly do love winter.  And this outfit, by SEMotion is so perfectly winter. I picked it up at Collabor88.  It's part of the new bento enabled clothing so the pom poms bounce and move with you.  The sweater has a skirt  that you can enable as fitted, or bento, or simply decide to wear the sweater alone.  

Now, the make up look comes from The Makeover Room.  A wonderful event to find great new looks.  Links and details below. 

Photographed at a lovely wintry sim called Starlight Shores.  I love exploring new places.

Home...


For the Holidays



So, I'm continuing the decor of my new home.  I want to start bringing in some Christmas touches but not completely, yet.  The front door needed some attention and this is what I came up with.  I'll change the Fall-ish wreath out a bit later in December, but for now, the sim I'm on is still very much Fall, so this works.

I was excited to find the snowy roof to fit my house, from Barnseworth Anubis.  So I am so looking forward to the whole wintery scene.  

Do you decorate for the seasons?

Winter Magic

My Favorite Things


"Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes..."  I love winter.  I love the snow; I love the winter holidays; I love the feeling of wonder and magic that seems to sparkle through the air.  It doesn't matter if your six or sixty or one-hundred-six!  There is just something special about this time of year.  Knowing that, there's a Second Life event called Tannenbaum, which I look forward to every single year.  It has all things winter, or holiday, or frosty, and many things that are magical.  I'm starting with this special dress, because, well, I LOVE it.  And these amazing eye lashes as well.  Now the frosty snowy face look I picked up at LAST year's Tannenbaum.  (Yes, it's okay to save things!) Anyway, I hope you are as excited as I for the season, this event, and the holidays!  Bright blessings of the season to ALL of you!


Pink is my favorite color and I thought it provided such a break from the traditional "red and green" (which I also love, and this dress comes in those colors)  I want to go caroling, or sledding, or ice skating!  What do you think of when you see a look like this?  I LOVE the warm woolen mittens!  


This needed a special makeup look, and I think this filled the bill.  The lashes are from Stardust, and are currently at Tannenbaum.  All style notes below!

NEWS!  I was asked to participate in a Christmas Village at Gull's Wing! (where I live) and so you can go and see my photos, but also, I put a 20% discount on a photo taken by me, of YOU!  Visit the village (lots of fun stuffs) and if you like, sign on to get a photo done! There's ice skating and photo ops and shopping!  See you there.
