Mistletoe

Sometimes when I take pictures, the muse is strong and I create multiple pictures for one blog. Today is one of those days. I can’t decide which of the 3 full view pictures I like the best so that means all three are going to be included. I’m trying, very hard, to grow as a photographer, blogger, and scene designer. I don’t think I am very good at decor but I do try hard and sometimes I get something I just have to try and share with the world.

The Arcade opened it’s doors on December 1, it took me a couple of days to head on over but when I did WOW. I went for some very specific things and then my eyes grazed across the advent gacha from Trompe Loeil. The 12 Days of Christmas advent gacha includes 12 keys to win to unlock the advent solarium. The solarium is free, simply grab the demo, play for your keys (I do recommend getting all twelve of them), go home, rez out the advent lantern and rez your keys. You get this stunning decor. There are no rares in the gacha and it is only 25L to play.

This awesome pose is from Image Essentials and is coming to The Naughty List 2 Event on December 9. There are a total of 5 poses available for purchase individually, these poses do not include mirrors and are bento so they do require bento hands and a bento-enabled viewer. Each pose will be on sale during the event for 100L.

I dropped the ball on this top from Lybra, it was created for the Cookish Fair and I grabbed it several days ago and then couldn’t figure out what to do with it. I thought I still had time but the fair ended on November 28. The good news is, that it is available in the main store location now. Maitreya fit only in 11 colors or a fatpack.

When I first saw this sweater at FaMESHed from Cynful I knew it would go perfectly with this top from Lybra and the outfit was born. I included these awesome flair leg pants from Aphorism to complete my look. This lovely cardigan comes in 20 colors with 20 satin colors for the inside, you can wear a fuzzy or non-fuzzy version and if you choose to purchase the fatpack you get 6 bonus colors as well. This cardigan is fit for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Belleza Isis and Freya only. The pants from Aphorism are available in 5 denim and 5 pinstripe colors, the fatpack comes with 3 bonus colors and they are fit for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Belleza Isis and Freya only.

I am really working on creating more stunning closeup, honestly, this is where a lot of the tiny details are missed in full-size photos. This skin is available right now from 7 Deadly Skins at Ultra Event, but hurry it’s closing soon. Britney is an Omega compatible applier based on the LAQ bento mesh heads. It’s available in two separate tone boxes, light and dark and each pack comes with 7 skin tones. I chose to showcase this skin on my lovely Catwa Catya face with a shape from West End. I have modified the body shape some but the face shape is straight from the box.

Lillies and tattoes

The lily was a symbol of the Greek goddess Hera (Roman: Juno), again showing purity and innocence. One tale tells of lilies springing up from drops of milk spilled from Hera’s breast as she nursed Heracles. Another tells a story of how the lily acquired its pistil: as Venus rose from the ocean, she saw a lily and, jealous of the beauty of the pure-white flower, created an ugly pistil that came up from its center, thereby marring its beauty. This story accounts for the lily’s additional association with fertility and eroticism. Lilies were associated with death as well, signifying that in death, one regained one’s lost innocence and purity. (From Lilipedia)

This tattoo is as beautiful as the flower itself. It goes down the arms and the side of the upper thighs and comes in dark, medium and low. And since the Lily stands for innocence I decided it is the perfect tattoo for me.

Hey now! Shush! :D

It’s not vanity to feel you have a right to be beautiful. Women are taught to feel we’re not good enough, that we must live up to someone else’s standards. But my aim is to cherish myself as I am.
