Unleash the Magic in 2014

If you are looking for a memorable image to ring in the New Year look no further than Aphrodite Shop owned by the always clever (and busy) Marina Ramer and Jaylin Whitewood.  They have created the Happy 2014 Poses Set for Couples and Friends in two versions. Get ready to celebrate the year of the Horse with your sweetheart and friends!
This is a mesh item so make sure you have a mesh viewer before you buy it. The first set comes with confection colored animated firework fountains.  Both sets have 5 poses for couples including two champagne toasts replete with handy champagne flutes and a series of really cute kiss poses.  Best of all two friends can be added making this set pure magic!
A 2014 Snowflake pose set is also included in the package. Swirling snowflakes and a light chain of stars makes this a romantic setting for couples and friends. Float this build a bit off the ground and use the nacom early mornin environment setting to get a landscape that looks like snow and is reminiscent of the northern lights.
Frankx Lefavre, my partner, joined me on this shoot and he decided to anticipate 2014 as a real “blast” so he set off the rocket he made!  The rocket is above and beyond and is a kaleidoscope of amazing special animated effects that go on and on…making this rocket simply spectacular!
For this shoot, I am wearing a dress called Sabrina created by Solidea Folies.  Sabrina is made of heavy satin with artfully draped netting that swirls and sways with each step.  The richly ornamented collar of silken leaves adds the perfect touch of elegance. Frankx  is wearing Violator for Men.  Phantom der Nacht in black is distinguished --  and is an elegant couture look for men that comes with two  different looks – “Earl” and “Tuxedo”.  Phantom der Nacht is also available in a red wine color.

Mr. X and the Golden Dawn - new release by Violator

Inside every story, there is a beautiful journey.  
Once again, Mr. X left a gift for me from Violator. Inside I found Soraya’s resplendent newly released formal gown created for the winning MVW 2014 and friend Anjelica Carling …it is called Golden Dawn Noh…and indeed, it is a dream to wear…and yes, it makes you feel on top of the world!
This gorgeous heavily embroidered red and 24 kt. gold thread floral Kimono flows around me as I glide along the path of dwarf pines that mantle the hillsides and fringe the shores of ponds. It has an ornate pattern of embossed gold on gold chrysanthemums symbolic of endurance and integrity. Gold flowers peek through deep cuts in the layers of sumptuous red silk as layers seem dusted with gold making this unforgettably elegant.
Following the path, I see that the pine trees have been fashioned so that their branches leap and coil, suggesting the undulating, animated play of dragons – in this kimono I feel like an elegant dragonfly gliding victoriously on the wisteria wind. The headdress of red and gold encrusted flowers spiral and twirl like beautiful blossoms that float never falling to the ground.
The path ends in front of a simple teak Tea House set high on a bluff overlooking the crashing waves of the ocean with a romantic moon gate on the horizon. It is so serene and peaceful listening to the ocean and looking into his eyes.  
He smiled at me as he whisked the bright green tea and ladled the hot water from the kettle into the tea bowl. The tea was delicious.
As night faded and the golden dawn slowly emerged… he presented me with an ancient scroll tied with a red and gold ribbon…tears filled my eyes and I could barely play my Shamisen…as he read what he wrote to me….
yumeji ni wa
ashi mo yasumezu
kayoedomo
utsutsu ni hitome
mishigoto wa arazu

Though I go to you
ceaselessly along dream paths
the sum of those trysts
is less than a single glimpse
granted in the waking world.

Swinging at the Christmas Expo with Mr. X and Heart Homes plus GIZZA at the J&A Expo

I am making my list and checking it twice…I shall never tell you when Mr. X is naughty or nice!


 I am relaxing while I wait for Mr. X in the just released Winter Swing by Heart Homes and Aphrodite Shop that is available at the RFL Christmas Expo.  I have looked  a long time for a swing like this.

This low prim swing (only 3) looks best attached to a tree or porch.  Simply click the swing to rezz a menu of single and couples poses.  You can start or stop swinging with an easy click between the strings of the swing.  The motion of the swing is perfect and very soothing.


Couples and singles can choose from a number of activities to indulge in… from sipping hot chocolate and chatting on your cell phone to reading and working on your computer.

The details on this swing are really great from the leaves of white ice on the strings holding the swing up to the colorful quilt fabrics on the swing itself – the textures are so crisp you look at them and feel cozy.   I am wearing a fabulous pendant from GIZZA  from the Jewelry and Accessories Expo and the new sweater dress in black by Gabriel.
