The Quintessence Of Light


The jewel, which is so well adapted to a woman's adornment, is a combination of the riches of nature and art; it is concentrated brilliancy, the quintessence of light.... In the bowels of the earth, in the deserted channels of exhausted torrents, in the gloomy depths of the mineral world, stars are concealed that rival in their beauty those of the firmament. The fresh spendours of dawn, the sun's incandescent rays, the magnificent sunsets, the brilliant colours of the rainbow, all are found enclosed in a morsel of pure carbon or in the centre of a stone.... uniting as though urged by the secret instinct of the beautiful, to compose prismatic forms of astonishing regularity... 

~~ Charles Blanc, Art in Ornament and Dress, 1875

Spoonful of Sugar Festival – Just Bloom


A flower does not think of competing
with the flower next to it. It just blooms.

I love that quote! I don't know who said it, wise person that they are. There is no competition in beauty. I wish for everyone to just bloom and celebrate their own wonderfulness.

Spoonful of Sugar Festival – Panic Mode


I am eclectic! Actually, I'm a little panicked; time got away from me and I have oh, about a zillion posts to do for the Spoonful of Sugar Festival! Could I admit defeat and bail? No, I can't, because this Festival is too important. It benefits Doctors Without Borders. Not only is it a huge event spanning four sims (shoppingggggg!) but it's for such a worthy cause. Here are a few of the offerings available by the incredibly talented designers. You may ask, what am I going to do with this cute little fan in my mouth? Wink. I'm not sayin' other than ALL the items are fabulous, from my hair accessories, my outfit to the house and welcome chalkboard behind me!

My Virtual Obsession


Sim restarts and maintenance are a part of Second Life. What do you do when you're trying to log-in and they happen? If it's an obsession for you as it is for me, you keep trying! ;)

My hair is by Desmonia, a flirty braid called Lani, flipped interestingly forward. It'll make for great vamp looks and you might want to wink when you wear it. My outfit is by PINK ICE - Gabriella is a very wearable and sexy top and pants outfit; the back has straps. You'll find this at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival and the sales are 100% to Doctors Without Borders. My sexy-fun platform heels are called Mellie, a new release by Tooty Fruity at the store. I'll show these off more because the store has ramped up with several new releases, and I see there's an awesome new group gift! 

The Working Space Set is by Serenity Style, with artwork and shelf/desk accessories included. It's pretty handy to imagine me in reality, sitting in Second Life, trying to log into, oh wait. Well, you get the point. This is an updated release found at the main store. The gorgeous Autumn Sunflower Arrangement is one of several floral releases by kaerri, now found at the 68 Main Event.

Everybody logged in and feeding their obsessions now?

Your Love Is King, Crown You With My Heart


Playing a little jazz for his homecoming, to our Harlow Courtyard by Sahi Designs. This is a lovely complete set with lots of texture customization and animations. Yes, that's a hot tub over there. I'll slip out of my adorable Catherine outfit by Luxe Paris Fashion House and join him when he's ready.

Both items are available now at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival! It's a fantastic event spanning 4 sims, with shopping, activities and entertainment. Moreover, proceeds benefit Doctors Without Borders. Hope to see you there!

Your love is king
Crown you with my heart
Your love is king
Never need to part
Your kisses ring
Round and round and round my head
Touching the very part of me
It's making my soul sing
Tearing the very heart of me
I'm crying out for more 
Your love is king
Crown you with my heart
Your love is king
You're the ruler of my heart
Your kisses ring
Round and round and round my head
Touching the very part of me
It's making my soul sing
I'm crying out for more
Your love is king

Spoonful of Sugar Festival Starts September 16!


I'm reporting early so you'll mark your calendars!

The Spoonful of Sugar Festival begins Saturday, September 16th!  The event will continue for two weeks, ending October 1st.  This one is MASSIVE, ladies and gets, spanning FOUR sims, with entertainment, auctions, raffles, gorgeous scenery, and YOU and ME!

I tp'd into a whirlwind of leaves, heralding the coming of Autumn. Ahh, the beauty of fall with all the brilliant colors - reds, oranges, yellows mixing in with the richness of brown. It's still warm so I chose to wear a tube top, jeans and sandals. See Credits Below for Styling.

Event:  Spoonful of Sugar Festival
September 16th - October 1st !!

This event benefits Doctors Without Borders, an amazing cause and one dear to my heart. No one should ever have to go without medical aid. With all the atrocities (war, disasters) happening in this world, Doctors Without Borders is an international movement to render help.  Quoting directly from the website (as great a description as there can be!): "Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. MSF offers assistance to  people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation. Our actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of neutrality and impartiality." [emphasis added] Read more HERE.


100% of the proceeds goes to this cause. Am I going to say this is an event you don't want to miss? Yep, a thousand times over.

Here a pic of the Raffle Area! There are some amazing designers participating. There is even a Gacha Orchard!


Wait, a HOUSE is going to be raffled?? Who's the lucky winner going to be?? I sat to rest on a huge pumpkin, while dreaming of this house.


 And an auction area....


This is a sim section with wonderful furniture and decor offerings! Everywhere I look I see awesome things.


 The build for this event is breathtakingly lovely. Stroll through the areas and enjoy while you shop.


Shopping is in actual shops, very quaint and inviting. You will find not only fashion, but furniture and decor, AND breedables.


An aerial of one of the sections.


A lovely fountain caught my eye.


I found another gorgeous spot for a pic!

Well, the heels need special pic-attention too. ;)


Come as you are this weekend, have a blast, donate, and drag home lots of wonderfulness from the fabulous designers participating. Oh, and grab some free cider once there.

Charlotte

 

 

I love when I come across a creator/store that I didn’t know about and just adore the first thing I see.  In this case though, I should say the creator came across me.  Dima Plessis of Cazimi sent me this poppy flower crown and pumpkin spice eyes today with a note saying she thought they fit me.   They do!  Everybody knows I am a hair flower ho ho.  I am truly almost always sporting some kind of headdress…even if it’s a lone daisy behind my ear ❤

The pumpkin spice eyes are just gorgeous and perfect for the upcoming season.  These two products are for the Spoonful of Sugar event to benefit MSF from Sept. 16- Oct 1, 2017…. so yeah … I’m a little early showing them…. mah bad.  Both items, the headdress and eyes, are exclusive, 100% donation items for the duration of SOS.  Please mark your calendar so you remember to go to such a worthy event ❤

I’m also wearing Akeruka’s newest bento mesh head, Charlotte.  Isn’t she purty!?  I don’t have any appliers on, this is the default skin.  I used the hud that comes with the head and chose freckles (always choose freckles) and practically bare makeup.  I did use the tint option on the lashes to color them a pretty shade of green just for fun.  I’m wearing the Charlotte shape (also comes with the head)  and it’s worth noting that I haven’t edited the face in any way…either in appearance or photoshop ….so this is the face you get when you buy Charlotte ❤

Charlotte will be available at the 4Mesh Event, the newest version of the older Mesh Body addict Bi-monthly event.  It’ll open on September 12th and run through October 11th (again…mark that calendar!) ❤

Cazimi: Poppy Hair Flowers for Spoonfull of Sugar – coming Sept. 16th
Cazimi: RealEyez – Mesh – Pumpkin Spice for Spoonfull of Sugar – coming Sept. 16th
[Akeruka] Mesh Head Charlotte Vers. 2.6 Bento – coming to the 4Mesh Event Sept. 12th

Suddenly Last Summer


It happened one summer, it happened one time
It happened forever, for a short time
A place for a moment, an end to dream
Forever I loved you, forever it seemed


One summer never ends, one summer never began
It keeps me standing still, it takes all my will
And then suddenly last summer
Sometimes I never leave, but sometimes I would
Sometimes I stay too long, sometimes I would
Sometimes it frightens me, sometimes it would
Sometimes I'm all alone and wish that I could


And then suddenly last summer
And then suddenly last summer
Until suddenly last summer
And then suddenly last summer
Until suddenly last summer
