Mr. X on the Peace by Peace Hunt May 1-31!

The first annual Peace by Peace Hunt begins May 1 -31 and is a sister hunt of the  Peace on Earth Hunt.  All hunt items are 1L and of high quality.  There are hints for each item. Just look for the poster pictured at the end of this blog and touch it to join the group for FREE and get the clues. There are 50 free gifts to find that run the gamut from hip new outfits for men and women, to furniture and home decor as well as landscaping items.  Many top designers are participating so make sure you visit their stores for their fantastic gifts... it is their way of saying thank-you to their clients.  Each shop will give you the LM for the next store on the hunt.


Check out this fab boho jumpsuit called Tranquility offered by Posh Pixels... it has a hip white on white floral pattern and comes with a  Native American dreamcatcher necklace made of horsehair, leather, feathers and beads that is thought to give its owner good dreams. Tranquility also comes with cute white fringe sandals that are made for slink flat feet. This can be worn with mesh and classic bodies. I love the fact that this is a complete look.


The Hint for Tranquility is: Peace By Peace 1 Hint Giver: Feeling sleepy?  Grab a cup of our award winning coffee.  The LM is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Vosk%20Post/54/165/22  And, remember to pick up a copy of the latest Mode Magazine!

Mr. X and the Dragonfly Princess - Poet's Heart & Jumo Iridescent

The sun settles like a mist of  warmth  on the lake. The dragonfly princess flies low, hovering above the tranquil water --refracting light off her wings -- the colors of her dress reflect the pattern on her delicate wings.  


The colors tilt and shift as the dragonfly princess lands softly in a magical glen.. listening to the hum of life around her...floating between two different worlds,  it is like a dream where wonderful thoughts are separated from reality, and are scattered like refracted light for us to assemble.  
I will not disappear as the dawn approaches rather I shall weave the sunlight and make the rays dance on my wings ... the colors will deepen with the shadows of the day... I Princess of the Dragonflies shall live on the whim of the winds... they will carry me in directions that I can only dream about....

Oh how I adore this new outfit by Poet's Heart called Dragonfly. It is made for classic mesh and Maitreya, Slink and Belleza Mesh bodies. Wear the dress with or without sleeves.  It has matching  boots, sleeves and wings.  It even has a special headdress for fun fantasy play.


Dragonfly is an exclusive at Fantasy Faire and will also be found at Poet's Heart Main Shop. In addition to dragonfly, this comes in grasshopper, bumblebee, fly, flower beetle,and ladybug... and who can resist a sweet little ladybug?



I have paired this with the *New* iridescent lipstick and with the new Olympia eye-make -up for classic heads and for Lelutka and Catwa, Omega mesh  heads .

Mr. X and Luxe Paris - A Trio of Gorgeous Dresses plus New Make-up from Jumo and Hair by Emo-tions + Swank

LUXE Paris is a high quality fashion brand for women & men, inspired by the Parisian haute couture and created by the professional model Parisian Skytower and the fashion editor Mika Palmyra. And, they have a fabulous new collection out for spring. All outfits shown are  made for the alpha huds of Maitreya, Slink and Belleza and classic mesh bodies. Check out one of my favorites, Feulles  Dress. I love the simple lines of this dress with its tantalizing abstract leaf pattern using the hottest spring colors that are trending on the runways in RL.

I also love this form fitting dress called Dalhia in an elegantly retro blue and gold floral pattern.  I told Mr. X that flowers have their own language -- it is why we put them in our homes, plant them in our gardens and embellish fabric with them...there is something soft and alluring about the floral pattern on this dress that can easily go from an afternoon tea to dinner on the town.

Robin Eggs Blue Dress is fun and it is an exclusive at Swank this month. It has a hip mod twist with the silver harness  and belt and the sexy slit up the side of this dress.. I for one love this color blue... it reminds me of freedom... of the sky and the sea... and of the expansive nature of inspiration... without that... we are useless.


I could not help but pair this dress with the new Asian Styled Hair by Emo-tions called Jia. This hair has a traditional bun and even comes with kanzashi (a gorgeous traditional Japanese hair ornament) that comes in blue, rose and red.  Jia also comes with chopsticks.  Jia is made for classic and mesh heads and comes with special appliers for Lelutka and Catwa mesh heads.

The make-up  has just been released by Jumo and it is  just gorgeous!  It is called Olympia and I feel like a goddess wearing it! Olympia Lips comes in 20 colors made for classic heads as well as Lelutka, Lelutka + Omega, Catwa bento mesh heads.

The Olympia Eyeshadow also new by Jumo comes in six jewel tones including brown, red, green, violet, pink and blue (worn).  I love the iridescent glitter in the corner of the eyes and the artful use of eyeliner that will make your eyes smoking hawt!

Mr. X and Hella Isa D'Orable Creations and Park Place @ Swank

This morning I asked Mr. X to come and help me straighten a few things out... I  have a love hate relationship with placing things -- love to decorate -- but hate trying to get it all straight -- there are XYZ tricks for that as Mr. X showed me.... I just love the new contemporary set offered by Park Place @ Swank. There are many low prim items available perfect to mix and match your home decor.


The items include an array of plants, I really liked the bamboo (3 prims), the lanterns that  can be made larger or smaller and they click on and off.  The fabulous fireplace that  you can turn up the fire... or not (1 prim and wow), a black and silver sofa table, the  cosmopolitan coffee table with accessories (3 prims another wow)  and a great herringbone patterned rug.

These lovely and comfortable cityscape chairs ( with or without pillows) plus throw pillows are 3 and 2 prims respectively. Both come with 14 interactive male and female poses.  The chairs are experience enabled giving a smoother transition between aos and props.  There are props for coffee, drinks, cell phone, notes, computer and more.


I am wearing another Swank Exclusive by Isa D'Orable Creations... called Hella. It is so sexy -- naughty and nice all at the same time and so well made and textures. I love the quilted leather and fine black lace, the high waisted belt that shows off my figure and the sexy side laces (Mr. X loves those)!  The fire is burning Mr. X and this little number is sure to make you hawt !! Hella is made for mesh and classic bodies -- and I am  wearing it  with my  Maitreya Mesh  body.  The boots are Pointy Boots by Muse, also at Swank.
One last find at Swank... in anticipation of summer are the patio lounge chairs... that beckon... they come with 10 poses and are so low prim and stylish that they are hard to resist. There is also a line of plants that complete this look along with a table and lights.

Mr. X and the Spirit Maiden --Six Looks by Silvan Moon @ Fantasy Faire -

Silvan Moon is a  sponsor for the 2017 Fantasy Faire!  Their  *NEW* Exclusive @ Fantasy Fair is called  Spirit Maiden and can be found at Spirit Pool (direct shop LM at end of blog).  Spirit Maiden will bring out the beauty in you... as it is just such a  downright pretty gown that is good for any occasion... fantasy or formal... you will be the most beautiful spirit in the room.


This is a perfect example of a  feminine Medieval inspired gown with a soft floral pattern and puff sleeves. Regardless if you are simple maiden or the empress ready to take a midnight stroll through her garden of delight... this gown is a must have. It comes in a multitude of soft romantic colors and is made for mesh bodies.


The Spirit Maiden... she sings a lilting melody that lifts to the moon as a single sparrow sings... she is no longer a decorative asset to her lord, the mother of his heirs and arbiter of good taste and modesty... she is the Spirit Maiden of  undying creativity that echoes even now through the years.


Another offering by Silvan Moon is Lilly of Hollowdell that reminds me of a combination of gown and sari with its wide silk trim skirt and tiered  artfully belted overskirt and short paisley patterned vest that reminds me of the wood block prints of Moghul India... wearing Lily of Hollowdell  you are fit for a Sultan! Lily of Hollowdell  is compatible with mesh bodies, I am wearing my Maitreya Lara body with it!  I have paired the new hair by Emo-tions called Stella with this lovely gown.


Another find reminds me of the best of Scottish Tartan and is called Broch Tuarach.  Named for an old broch on the land, Broch Tuarach means "north-facing tower" in Gaelic. I love the look of this gown with its lovely tartan in heather, brook or hunter... each one has its own beauty... and comes with a matching sweater  legs and tops that are compatible with all mesh bodies, I am wearing Lara. This gown is also compatible with  regular mesh bodies and classic.



Ranger of Islavare Dress Set is perfect for roleplay.  As a matter of fact, I cannot think of a better outfit to hunt in than this gorgeous tunic made of rich emerald velvet and edged with olive silk ruffles at the hem and embellished by the finest leather edging and rich gold brocade embroidery at each sleeve and at my neckline.  My cloak made of  the finest velvet is lined with ermine to keep me warm...it can be taken on or off.  The Ranger of Islavare Dress Set is made for classic and all mesh bodies, I am wearing Lara with it.  It also comes in a wide range of colors.


I love the whisper of chiffon skirts and overlay skirt as light as a breeze not to mention the sexy corset top with lace insets and lace around the sweetheart neckline...Lady Rhapsody is all this and more.  This gown is like wearing a dream. It comes in colors such as tea rose, wheat, hyacinth and orchid and is made for slink and maitreya (worn) mesh bodies. I love the roses at the waist... it sets this gown off perfectly.
And who doesn't need one... a "fairy godmother" that is!  Never fear Silvan Moon to the rescue! It would be hard to leave as quietly as I arrived because this Fairy Godmother Gown is so intricate and lavish.  I love the bodice that is embellished with stars and ruffles... the bell shaped skirt has the most intricate texture... the sleeves are belled and so elegant and yes, look at those wings... and high collar they just glisten.... the Fairy Godmother gowns comes for standard bodies with an alpha plus it come for those that wear Slink and Maitreya (worn) mesh bodies making this easy to wear.

Five Looks from [Aleutia] @ Fantasy Faire 2017

The 2017 Fantasy Faire is now open and is running through April 30. This is the largest fantasy related event in SL that offers 11 days of great bargains, concerts and gorgeous sims that benefit Relay for Life. Aleutia is participating in Fantasy Faire this year and has some really gorgeous offerings there such as this outfit called Hillany with a beautiful tribal ikat texture.  This is a wonderful addition to any wardrobe with both top and panties for those wanting to enjoy the epitome cute and sexy. The dress has a hint of sheer to it, enough to tantalize as the sun glows around you. Includes [Aleutia] Signature 30 Color Hud. Available in Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Venus, Freya, and Isis. I have paired this with new hair by Jumo called Candice.


Another standout is the outfit called Adriel. It is fierce and sexy at the same time and is perfect for fantasy and roleplay sims. Like all of  [Aleutia's]  unique offerings this comes with a 30 color changing  hud that allows you to change the color of the top, the bottom and the leather ties giving you endless options for personalization.


I have paired this with new hair by Emo-tions called Moon that is an exclusive at this month's Hairology Event.  I am also wearing new eye-liner by Jumo called Vega, it comes in 8 different options, each one is fabulous!

“Adriel” is the perfect outfit for the warrior in all of us. A strong, bold top and bottom that can be worn together or separate and fits perfectly under the “Raini” piece, also available from [Aleutia]. The straps are able to be changed separate from the quilted leather bodice and bottom, creating countless styles for you to enjoy. Includes [Aleutia] Signature 30 Color Hud. Available in Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Venus, Freya, and Isis.

Another find at Fantasy Faire by  [Aleutia]  is Sophia. I love the transparent sexy look of this dress that is embellished with fringe.  This dress is made for all mesh bodies and also comes with a massive color changing hud made up of the brightest and best colors trending this season.

“Sophia” is a beautiful wrap inspired by the stories of gypsies, sensual creatures who would delight and dance for the crowds. Figure-hugging cloth, perhaps a bit sheer from age and use, has been reborn into a delicious treat for the ladies. Includes [Aleutia] Signature 30 Color Hud. Available in Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Venus, Freya, and Isis.

“Ruby” is an incredible set, including top and bottom, that is a decadent invitation for sensual surrender. I especially liked the fine netting that glimmers in the moonlight...with just enough peekaboo to be 50 Shades of Great and a perfect addition to your inventory. Includes [Aleutia] Signature 30 Color Hud. Available in Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, Venus, Freya, and Isis.


My Last find is a gorgeous gown called “Christiana”.  It is  stunning  and, as always, available in the entire range of shades from [Aleutia], entirely customizable where you can make the gown that fits your style. I love the way it cascades behind me like a magnificent cloud.....


The bodice, back, lace, bow, and skirt all can be changed separately, giving the opportunity for you to revel in your inner empress...wearing this you will rule the night!  Includes [Aleutia] Signature 30 Color Hud. Available in Maitreya, Physique, Hourglass, and Standard Sizes.

Mr. X and Heavenly - Glitter and Muse @ Swank


I dreamt a dream! What can it mean?
And that I was a maiden Queen
Guarded by an Angel mild:
Witless woe was ne'er beguiled!



And I wept both night and day,
And he wiped my tears away
And I wept both day and night,
And hid from him my heart's delight.



So he took his wings, and fled
Then the morn blushed rosy red.
I dried my tears, and armed my fears
With ten-thousand shields and spears.


Soon my Angel came again;
I was armed, he came in vain;
For the time of youth was fled,
And grey hairs were on my head.
