High on Love – Heart Homes & Ever an’ Angel @ Sneak Peek

Previously posted @ Perceptions Sita Writer.

And, why not high on love?  Mr. X and I were feeling like a couple of rambling gypsies…. so we decided to lounge away the hours in the new gypsy tent from Heart Homes that is an exclusive at Tres Chic.

This set is PG and offers wine and many other tasting options — and song… there is nothing like being serenaded by a guitar….. did I tell you Mr. X has a wonderful voice even though he has a funny accent….

Whether you lie around, sit and eat or drink, dance or even snuggle, this gypsy tent is great fun and low in prims. Nothing is linked so you can set up the objects in the tent any way you like… or if you are low on prims, and this set is low in prims, you can always take a few things away.

I am wearing the new exclusive outfit from Sneak Peek that runs through August 5 called -Paint -Nautical Nostalgia – Siren by Ever an’ Angel.  I love the rich purple color of this silk dress that is washed with an iridescent pattern like the waves of the ocean that is elegant and adds just the right touch of sparkle.

Best of all at Sneak Peek you can get this fashionable outfit before it hits the grid and be way ahead of the fashion curve!  Paint Nautical Nostalgia comes with an asymmetrical  crop top and long flowing skirt with a side tie that will get you noticed whereever you choose to wander on the grid….

As for me —- and Mr. X… we are just toasting our SL Life together and all of our friends, the many talented builders and amazing designers of everything from clothes to the smallest items and, especially to the readers of this blog… cheers to all!

I’m okay…Featuring SWANK with Aphrodite Shop & Heart Homes and Heth Haute Couture

Previously posted @ JewelsOfSL.

This hut is a cuddle hut, it has some amazing couples 
poses in it, you really should try it out to see exactly how cute it is. 
I chose to go single with it, cuz I am ok on my own. 
I am strong on my own, 
and I enjoy my own company. 
Those who know me, enjoy it too. So it’s all good. 
Tip of the day, when you are doing poses and your slink feet 
go wonky, there is a tool to help with that. 
Head over to marketplace and pick it up. 
The Alu Ankle Lock will override any pose to put your ankles in a straight position, whether AO or posing. You can use this with other poses and it will not effect the animations used other than in the ankle area.

Wine and Dine Time – Aphrodite/Heart Homes

Previously posted @ Livvys Boudoir.

Aphrodite/Heart Homes, has released an amazing bunch of items recently.  To me they remind me of Italy.  The wines, cheeses, and dinners.  The little grill that fits perfect on the deck of any home. What I love about this designer is that when you get the box, the items come in a clump so all you have to do is rez the items in edit mode and place where you want.  And IF you want to move items around how you want them, you have that option. 

What  really stands out for me is the details of the items in the pictures.  Depending on your windlight you will see many different details on the textures.  For me the more realistic but not overly so are my favorites of Secondlife.  Aphrodite/Heart Homes is always improving on their looks.  I have been a shopper of them forever.  And both designers have come along way and even expanded.  Which is what drives me to stay.  I love watching those with talents grow.  It takes time and they are totally nailing it. ♥

Strict and Mannered in the Red Room Heart Homes and Violator’s Bad Girls!

Previously posted @ Perceptions Sita Writer.

50 Shades of Grey is an international sensation.  Mr. X told me that one of the most iconic settings in the  50 Shades of Grey universe is the “Red Room of Pain,” also referred to as simply the Red Room.  Heart Homes has been busy creating this iconic setting for you make your own fantasies come true — in SL at least.

Heart Homes Red Room is an exclusive at The Collaborative. The first requirement of a Red Room is a lot of red furnishings and the room created by Heart Homes is loaded with red furnishings from the couch that offers a zillion options to the red bed. It also comes with many many shhhhh props!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Red Room if things were all comfy, you need to have some things to cause pain and of course you need some sorta restraints… a dear old friend of mine and I call these “sewing machines” but that is just a sita private joke…. In any case all joking aside,   the red room comes loaded with all manner of props that will keep you amused for weeks… if you dare.

I dug deep into my inventory, not too deep as Violator is one of my favoites in SL and decided to dress the part…I am wearing Strict and Mannered by, yes, Violator… need I say More?  Well I do,  Soraya  CEO of Violator has been busy RL with her jewelry line — www.finerblack.com check it out it is amazing — and get this at Violator in SL!  I think Soraya is the “original” badgirl…she knows what I mean!


“It’s just beyond this door . . . my playroom,” Christian tells Ana. “Like your X-box and stuff?” she innocently asks. Oh, Ana. So naive.

Introverts Unite! (Separately…In Our Own Homes)

Previously posted @ Gia’s World.

Wanna know something kind of personal about me? I’m an Introvert and I’m proud! It actually took me a loooong time to say that and understand that it was okay to say that. I was told since I was a young girl that I shouldn’t be ‘antisocial’. It was wrong, it was bad, it was mean, it wasn’t right, etc etc. I met someone not very long ago who laughed when I said I was antisocial. She said, “You are -NOT- antisocial! You’re very social. I don’t know who ever would tell you that BS but, they’re wrong. You may chose to socialize with only a few people, you may be selective about those you socialize with. Being out in public drains you I bet?” I agreed. “Well honey, that’s not antisocial, that’s Introvert. Entirely different.” So I explored this new word and I embraced it and it really helped me. I hadn’t realized how upset it made me to think that I couldn’t just go out and be a social butterfly like a lot of other people out there can, how much it made me look down on myself because of all the BS that had been drilled in my head about this for so many years.
I understand why I look forward to hanging out with….ME! I understand why when we go out shopping, or friends ask me to go ‘hang out’ with them, I come back home and feel this exhaustion. Like I have to recharge a battery. I very much value my ‘Me’ time. I love my small circle of friends and feel no need at all for an abundance of friends. My circle is small and secure and mostly family…but I am very social with them and they will tell you that. Texting, phone, visiting…whatever it may be, they hear from me often.
My pictures reminded me a lot of the real me and so I wanted to reveal that part of me. Funny how much poses can influence everything in my portraits. They breathe life into my pictures. A lot of times, that’s why it takes me forever to blog things because…I can’t simply stand in front of a wall, I love telling a story. I like you to see my pictures and wonder what exactly is going on. What was she doing, is she doing, or will she do?
My wonderful lil lazy chair is by The Pose Shop and is at Thrift shop in a gacha! It has 4 adjustable poses in it, I just featured my favorite two. Click on the Pose Shop link above to follow it on Facebook and see the other two poses! This isn’t all either. There are some more goodies you’re going to want to get your hands on. You never know how the poses will inspire your pictures!

Green Beer & Mr. X – Heart Homes- Paddy’s Pub

Previously posted @ Perceptions Sita Writer.

Hello, I am your bartender at the new Paddy’s Pub created by Aphrodite at Heart Home….. I am a logical negativist…and think there are two kinds of people in the world… workers and hustlers.  The hustlers never work and the workers, they never hustle and yes, I am taking your order and notes.

St Patty’s Day is around the corner and Mr. X and I are brewing up double green trouble at the F&S Bar with the new mesh pub called Paddy’s Pub by Aphrodite at Heart Homes.

Paddy’s Bar comes fully loaded with animations and tons of props that will add up to countless months of fun.  There are also 4 bar stools with fun animations for sitting, leaning, drinking — green beer of course and chatting.  I like when the bartender is put to work. This bar keeps them busy so the beer the will always be cold!  


Mr. X is a mixologist think –think that Tom Cruise movie and the line….” I am the last barman poet / I see America drinking the fabulous cocktails I make / Americans getting stinky on something I stir or shake / The sex on the beach / The schnapps made from peach / The velvet hammer / The Alabama slammer. / I make things with juice and froth / The pink squirrel / The three-toed sloth. / I make drinks so sweet and snazzy / The iced tea / The kamakazi / The orgasm / The death spasm / The Singapore sling / The dingaling. / America you’ve just been devoted to every flavor I got / But if you want to got loaded / Why don’t you just order a shot? / Bar is open.”


 Behind the bar, the bartender pours beer from two different taps, mixes drinks, cleans glasses and wipes down the bar.

Personally, I like pouring straight from a keg — don’t you… a nice dark beer and I sing to myself, the luck is gone, the brain is shot…. but the liquor…we still got!

The barman even takes orders… I like that because as Mr. X knows, I am very good at giving…. orders!  Once in a while, Mr. X gives me my “Marching” orders !

Ever An’ Angel @ Sneak Peek & St Patty’s Day Pub Heart Homes

Previously posted @ Perceptions Sita Writer.

It is a late afternoon in March and the sun is setting in shades of tangerine and orange that will deepen as night falls…. Mr. X told me that sometimes if you are that state of mind, hard decisions are sometimes optional…and I am in that state of mind, wanting to color outside the lines.
And, can you blame me when wearing this new boho inspired  pant suit by Ever An’ Angel  called Esplanade — I couldn’t decide if I should wear it in Mango or Rosebud, so I decided to get both. Esplanade is an exclusive at Sneak Peek and comes in a rainbow of pleasing colors.  Esplanade also comes with a long jade and silver necklace that is the perfect accessory completing this look.
Esplanade is  as charming and playfully direct as the kind of women that inspires you. Wearing this you can show off your sunkissed shoulders.  Wide flowy legs with a lace hemline and belt at the waist coupled with colors that are woven with natural yarns  produce a mélange effect, giving this a soft, faded appearance.

Since St Patty’s Day is around the corner, I have to show you Sneaky Shamrock’s Irish Pub by Aphrodite at Heart Homes.  As always, this pub comes loaded with animations and a variety of drinks. It is low prim and has a rezz so  you can use it for special occasions with ease.

Friends can gather and sit at the bar and choose their drinks. There is even a barman AO included that wipes the bar down, takes drink orders and pours beer!

This is a must have for any St. Patty’s Day Party!  Mr. X and I Salute you!  The first glass of Green beer is on us and that is an offer hard to refuse!
