Amaretto Breedable Horse

LOL I've discovered that trying to make friends with a horse isn't easy.  They don't stand still, nor are they interested in having their pictures taken.  If I stood very still, they would come to me, however, by the time I would the camera positioned, the beauty was gone or had given me their rear end.  Perhaps to them it is their best end.  what lovely beasts they are!  My first experience with so many horses was with my friend Kira who many of you know as the owner and designer for Style by Kira.  What you may not know is she is  experienced and knowledgeable on horses.
Today I was visiting Casa Grande, Tombstone Sonoran Desert  the horses I was trying to work with were Amaretto breedable horses.
The two featured items today are new in the Designer Showcase.  
Skin - style by Kira - Serenity skin 01H
Outfit - Bubble's Design Ava 50's
Hair - Ploom-London-Candy comes with a colour hud that allows for a number of colour combinations.  A really great buy for your linden.

INVERSE - landscaping, waterfalls and....

inVerse - Landscaping, Waterfalls, Palms, Trees, Stones, Waves, and  taxi to the actual location.  the Landscaping area can be reached from a TP from the main store.
This is the Marketplace url.  INSIDE

Today I got to feel a bit like Cinderella, well kind of.  I decided I wanted to blog one of the wonderful homes from Inside.  I've been eyeing the above home for some time.  It is called Absolute Summer, this two storey house has the clean lines that I so like in a build. 30x37 (1024 sqm or more)  100 prims.  I had just entered the house when a voice called out to me.  It was Prince Charming inviting me to see a new sim that features landscaping, a new division of INSIDE.  You have to know that this Italian Prince I'd follow anywhere.  To my delight, he took me into a wonderland of green lush vegetation, waterfalls, magnificent rock formations and crystal blue water with foaming winter white waves.
Everything you see that is for sale is clearly  identified, you can purchase modify/transfer  or  copy/modify.  Darling readers, you won't believe the cost, outrageously affordable.  This next picture was my favourite surprise, I truly felt like I was in an enchanted location.
I could imagine myself inside the cave, it was so peaceful, the waves were rolling in, a lulling soothing visual. in the gigantic boulders off in the distance
I could see the roaring water cascading over and imagine the birds flying overhead.
The INISDE/INVERSE team have given you the tools to build your own ambiance, you have no reason not to have the home of your dreams in the setting you want.  more pictures on flickr.  Low prim,. good prices, excellent customer service.

Dear Diary

His touch was electric, as his finger traced along my cheek, I wanted to push his hand away.  I couldn't, I sat as still as stone.  Every sense was focused on his touch.  It was lazy, it lingered, it reminded me of the times I'd set my mind to putting Lacy my big Persian at ease before taking her to the Vet. His touch was practiced, his moves, his words were like a dance.  Unbidden my body was responding, his fingers tilted my face up to his, and I knew, even with my eyes closed, that his would be open, like the hunter, he would be watching every muscle movement in my face.  Already his radar would have picked up the heat of my body's responses to his nearness.  I heard my inner voice, "he's good, but I'm still on the tarmac waiting for contact" that was my brain... I knew that once again, I had a choice to make.  a physical connection is so fleeting, no matter how intense. 
We desire many things, objects, emotional & physical fulfillment, these needs change as we progress along the path of life.   We owe ourselves the gratification of our desires when we can obtain them, however, for every action there is a reaction. It is time and experience that gives us the tools to
gather the information we need to make healthy and productive decisions that give us lasting joys.

sYs Design

[sYs] Design - Cyber & Fashion : Clothes , Skin & Accessories   I am reading a book that was suggested to me by a dear friend here in SL. She passed me a note card with information about the author John Norman and suggested I might find it an interesting story.  The story begins with a young man who finds himself on an other planet. I am of course simplifying it, I mention it only because when I wandered over to sYs Design, I felt immediately as if I had landed on different planet.  It is so well laid out, every detail is designed to create a feeling and mood.  It took me a moment to realize that I was surrounded by the gifts this shop offers it's group members.   There is a cost to join this group.  When you see the gifts offered,  you will likely decide that it is a good investment.  You land in a central court, the various divisions of the store are well identified on the floor map at your feet.  The ambient music is futuristic without being in your face, and at a level that it allows you to think and take in all of what you are seeing.  Clean spacious and uncluttered, if this genre is for you, then this is a MUST when on a shopping expedition.
Wanting to do this blog with all sYs components, I went back and bought a shape.  In all the goodies I acquired earlier today, there wasn't a shape, and in my own shopping I neglected to get one.  $450 for Sophy, I could not tell prior to purchase if they were mod.  They are both modify and copy. However i was pleasantly surprised to see that in the purchase I got 9 shape possibilities.  Except for the modification of the bust to a smaller size, I have not altered the body, or face. Sophy shape -high model body (pin up) $

Deadwood City

Deadwood City Wild West Roleplay  Clara landed with a thud, a very unladylike entrance to new surroundings.  Standing she quickly brushed her outfit, righted her hat and tried to look as if she belonged.  A gentleman walking towards her tipped his hat, to her dismay, he winked.  Offering his arm, he leaned forward so his words were only for her "play along" and louder for the few who were watching, "Sorry I was delayed, shall we proceed to tea".  Before she could reply, she found herself being gently guided towards the tea room. She felt the warm blush rising to her cheeks, grateful for the rescue, she tried to think of what to say.  Seating her at a table for two in the corner of the tea room, he smiled his  dark eyes twinkling with merriment, "do you think we fooled them?"

Inside the box

Inside the box, outside the box, what colour goes with what, how many questions do we face in one day.  Today was easy peasy, it was an Amacci and Java day, both merchants of the DESIGNER SHOWCASE
Questions keep life interesting, however, thinking outside the box, means we never give up, we always find a way.

No place to hide

Native American African & Shamanic, Four Directions Tribal The heat was stifling, thankful she had her hat to protect her eyes from the glare of the sun Lady Anna stopped to listen to the distant rumbling. A storm was brewing, she hoped she would get back to camp before it began.  How silly to have wandered off on her own.  "Perhaps I can be of assistance" startled, Lady Anna jumped, a strong arm came around and held her, "sorry didn't mean to alarm you" the voice was gruff, almost a growl the accent was so pronounced.  She recognized the voice, and knew that it wasn't by chance he happened to be here.

Exploratorium

We live in an age where almost anything is possible. Certainly the 3D world that we can explore at our leisure allow the mind to explore dimensions of thought that previously were not as readily available.  I actually got to see a reproduction of the comet Hartley 2, imaged by the Epoxi Mission back on 4th November 2010. (see pictures in flickr)  There is so much to see and explore that you will need to either plan for an extended visit, or go several times.

Meet Christine

I don't often do this, but I wanted you to see just what is being offered to you from Stars.  Designer Alanna DuPont has  given you in this round of the Designer showcase, a shape, several options of makeups and a skin.  Oh yes and a lovely pair of blue eyes.  Perfect for the summer tan, and the sun streaked/bleached hair that is so popular during the summer months.  She gives you the design card for the hair that she uses from Truth with the package.  I let our model pick out what she wanted to wear. She picked  Christine skin 2 cleavage, and the shadow 6, Ohhhh nice.  She has added shadow 3 along with the eyelashes themselves that come in the package.  So for the Designer Showcase price, you are getting the shape, 5 skins,6 make ups, eyes and lashes. AND I saw there is a bra and underpants in there too.

Lost lighthouse

Lost Lighthouse - El Rayo Verde -, Despume Island  Shading her eyes, she looked out over the water.  There was no boat, no sign that he had ever been here.  A glutton for  punishment, she climbed the steps towards the upper balcony.  Her heart heard the laughter they had shared as he had chased her up the steps that summer day. Their time had been so intense, how had she missed the moment his attention had drifted away.

Blue Moon

Once upon a fairy tale, a beautiful princess from the land of Mystical Dreams, looked up into the night and fell  instantly in love with the moon high above.
"oh"she cried, "stars above, please send him my  love":  The man of the moon, heard her cry, for her voice soft and pure, carried through the velvet ebony of  the sky. Like a whisper her love caressed his ears.  He knew they could never really meet, and his heart began to turn a shade of blue.  Sadly he sent a moon beam down and wrapped  her in its a gentle hue of blue. The Princess knew the love was true, always in blue, she can be heard singing, "I will always love you".

ultra violet

Photon's Castle - fantasy adventure park, Photon Pinks -  If the dress were any tighter, she'd stop breathing.  It was worth the torture, all eyes were on her.  Her long legs looked even longer with the new shoes she got from Magnifico. They were brilliant, they were modern, yet comfortable, how cool was that! She knew that her hair pulled away from her face showed off her exotic colouring.  "look and drool" she thought and she paraded down the ramp. The outfit she was wearing was cleverly designed to show her every move.  The colour a metallic shade of violet was unlike any other colour in the show.  She had the starring role.  The zipper in the back of the dress shouted,to be pulled down.  Definitely a dress she'd  have to claim at the end of the show.

Lady Carrie comes to tea

Brody Castle in the Highlands of Scotland  Getting out of the car, she couldn't help but think of the last time she'd been at the castle.  Well things would be different now, and she meant to claim what was hers.  As she began her walk up the time worn steps, she saw the Ian had already arrived, the small jet ranger was parked on the helipad. Off in the distance she saw the familiar snow capped mountains and smiled.  Yes this had to be one of the most beautiful  places in the world.
From the window he watched her approach, her long hair gently framing her face was being tousled by the breeze.  He noted that her natural beauty wasn't being ruined by make up she didn't need.  She was wearing the heirloom ruby choker he'd given her on their anniversary, and to his pleasant surprise she also wore the ring. Her simple gown was elegant and of the latest fashion, the colour dark enough to show off her soft feminine healthy glow.  Her skin was still as smooth and young looking as when they had first met.  Why had she come, and why now.
