Renew Yourself at Swank But Don’t Upset The Fairies


Don't ya just hate it when you've settled in for a renewal nap in the forest, and a fairy chases you away?? THIS fairy is chained to a petite's house so I must have really upset her to come after me, house and all!

This month's theme for Swank is Renew Yourself/January Makeover. Said fairy decor/build above is by Pink Magic - you need her for your garden! My outfit consisting of top, skirt, and earrings is by JUMO, called Christina. I really like this set - the top texture with lace is really beautiful. The skirt is a good mesh creation - it is full and moves well. I'm also wearing eyebrows from an impressive brow package from Avada. The purchased folder includes applier huds for Classic, Catwa, Lelutka, LAQ and Omega, so they've pretty much got you covered. It also includes brow shapes!


Happy shopping, as you renew yourself into the New Year.

Miss You

Sometimes the words I want to say are better left unsaid, sitting firmly in my mind, pushed to the back of my brain to ponder on at another time. When this happens, however, I don’t really know what to say, what to write about. The thoughts swirl around my brain but they are better there than out in the open.

Designer Showcase is starting in less than 2 days and when it does you can head on over and pick up this fabulous dress from Jumo. This dress is fit for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, and standard fitmesh. It includes a HUD with 25 unique textures and a stunning pair of earrings that resize on touch. This is full-length gown and is just gorgeous.

It may be past midnight on New Year’s Eve but that doesn’t mean you can’t still party like it’s 1999. I wanted to pair this stunning dress with a hair worthy to show off and I did that easily with this beautiful hair from Doe. This gacha set includes 14 commons and 4 rares and also includes a solid and blinking Christmas light headband. I just love Doe hair, the textures are so realistic and the hairs are so cute.

This gorgeous skin is from 7 Deadly Skins and is coming to 4Mesh on January 12. I’m so thrilled that I am now blogging for 4Mesh and it’s even better that I can feature one of my amazing creators at the same time. This skin comes in a freckled and non-freckled version. The freckled version of this skin comes with a body skin that does not have freckles but you can purchase the body skin applier separately at the main store location. When you buy the body skin HUD it comes with plain, beauty marks, mild freckles, and heavy freckles. This skin is based on the LAQ bento mesh heads but I am featuring it on my Lelutka May.

I’m really pleased with the direction my photography is taking, it’s a bit of a different thing for me since I have spent so much time creating full outfits to blog. I’m not wearing ANY shoes in this picture at all, but I really wanted the focus to be on the dress and upper half of my body. I’m focusing on more close-up photography and less wide shots, creating one epic shot instead of many little shots. My goal this year is to improve upon my photography and maybe, just maybe get those spots that I want so badly. It’s important for me to grow as a blogger and photographer, so my aim this year is to become more and gain more confidence in myself and my skills.

I wasn’t sure at first how I wanted to showcase this fabulous dress from Massom, it comes with optional fur arms and is fit for Maitreya and Hourglass only. They are sold individually in 7 colors or as a fatpack. Grab them right now at District 20 until January 19.

Too Much Time on My Hands

It’s creeping up to the new year, time to throw away the old and make way for the new. I’ve decided that isn’t only relevant in real life and it’s time to create a new year, new you in Second Life as well. I’ll start with creating a new style of photography and blogging. I won’t stop writing I enjoy that part far too much. It is my intention this year to improve my photography skills, learn new things to help me get those spots that I want so badly. It’s time for another growth of Danni’s Dream. I hope you will all join me on this journey and offer constructive criticism when needed in the comments.

I’ve decided to take some help and advice from my very dear friend Adalynne Romano, she’s bossy and demanding and usually absolutely right. She poked and prodded, suggested and demanded, and what you see here is the end result of that. I wanted to blog this lovely sweater and wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with it. I started searching through my blog groups to see what decor items were available and I found these amazing clocks from Plastik. Available right now at SaNaRae, which runs from 12/26 until 1/17, you can pick 5 individual packs of two clock colors or a fatpack that includes four special colors as well. I took my shot and wasn’t entirely happy with how little of the clock you could see, inspiration struck and I added some smaller clocks. These clocks are resizeable through the modify function to be able to fit them in your decor.

Clock *new*The Plastik – Waine Noir, Lyle, Bright, Emerald (fatpack exclusive) – SaNaRae

This sweater is from Lybra and is available in 11 individual colors or a fatpack with 17 colors. It is fit for Maitreya only.

The perfect shot requires the perfect pose. It doesn’t matter how good you look if the pose doesn’t do it justice. Foxcity is by far one of my favorite pose creators in Second Life. I feel that Satomi does a fabulous job at bringing my avatar to life.

Now we get to the part where I have to really re-think my photography. As you may know, I tend to do a full shot then zoom in on my face to provide a closeup of my face. Sometimes the number of pictures I do is overwhelming, not only to my readers but to myself as well. It’s all about the angle and the zoom factor in Second Life.

Adoness very graciously accepted my application to become a blogger for her. I have used her hairs for YEARS, I love the funky styles that she produces and this hair, although older is still completely relevant. I love the curly, a-line style of this hair and how it frames my face so fantastically.

These Precious Days I’ll Spend With You


Oh, it's a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
And the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
And I haven't got time for the waiting game

And the days dwindle down to a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days, I'll spend with you
These precious days, I'll spend with you

                        ~~ September Song, Frank Sinatra

Pardon me while I burn your retinas with post-editing. I got excited. November 7th heralds a new round at Swank! This month's theme is Colors of Autumn. Many pretties await us so carve out some time to visit the event and see just how many things strike your fancy. Here, I'm sharing gorgeousness from JUMO, LUXE Paris, and Heartsdale Jewellery. There is a whole, huge showroom of wonderful items. Happy shopping!

Poison Running Through My Veins


I want to love you but I better not touch
I want to hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I want to kiss you but I want it too much
I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You're poison, running through my veins
You're poison
I don't want to break these chains

Your mouth, so hot
Your web, I'm caught
Your skin, so wet
Black lace, on sweat

I hear you calling and it's needles and pins
I want to hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
Don't want to touch you but you're under my skin
I want to kiss you but your lips are venomous poison
You're poison, running through my veins
You're poison
I don't want to break these chains
Poison...
