I really admire creative people. Sax Shepard of SSD (Sax Shepard Designs) is really becoming the Harry Winston of SL. He has a new jewelry set out called Ione Diamonds. There is so much in this set I couldn’t even TRY to get it all in one photo, but I really wanted to show off the Circlet Bindi. I’m Norwegian but I’m still going to flaunt this. The set comes in gold, platinum and I even heard he as a Gatcha set that’s full of beautiful colors coming up. I know these are a sneak peek, but the Flirt Cross Strap Mules from Mr. Shepard are soooooooooooooo cute. I have a story about shoes like these in RL, but that’s another story for a long day
Miss Rebel Hope of !Rebel Hope fame has a couple of cute dresses coming up for Fameshed, I chose the Rachel dress in Red to dance around in these photos with…and looook at that rear! Rachel and Jessie come in all sorts of delicious colors and patterns. I might need to leave the build plat this week…a few times. Scroll down for the deets.
Skin: Glam Affair – Candy for the Arcade. OMG yes, I almost forgot to mention all the Glam Affair skins at the Arcade…absolutely GORGEOUS

So many must-haves. Sax Shepard has outdone himself with these new Vixen Stilettos that pair up with the Slink feet, I’d definitely wear these in real life. They come in a myriad of colors and options so get over to his store and buy “The Whole Damn Pack” because like his Dione Diamond set, they’re classics that you’ll always be wearing. Rebel Hope has some gorgeousness out with this Lyra sequined dress that fits like a glove and drapes beautifully.

When I was young, my grandma had a sofa with a wooden frame somewhat like this one but she didn’t call it a sofa or a couch. She called it a davenport, or its affectionate family name, the Davenno. Even at five years old I thought that was so very fancy. The Area 51 theme at Garden event by The Liaison Collaborative was so apropos with last week’s announcement that yes, Area 51 is real. The late night radio UFO people have got to be ecstatic.
I have a more earthly depiction of all things alien because this set from DIGS is so ME…with the greatest davenno in SL. You can get all the details at the DIGS website and you can purchase this set at The Garden until next month. Available in PG and Adult versions, with single and couples poses in the couch and chairs. The couch has couples poses for MF, FF and MM couples. You can sit, recline, surf the net, drink coffee, eat popcorn, cuddle, or get intimate with this varied and versatile “click & sit” engine. The set is also easily customized. There are a selection of wood and fabric textures included in the couch, chair, table and lamp, within access-controlled texture menus.
You can also see a little glimpse of the new Gos Boutique shoes, the Paris Peeptoes. Deliciously detailed, I specifically love the heart shaped peep. They come in multiple colors and uses the Colour+ technology in patent leather, or silk…very hard to choose, you should just get both sets. Cute with jeans and a button down orrrrr your favorite silkies. This release also includes a separate Sapphire Paris that will be available as a PDSA fundraiser item. Great organization for a great cause, you can find out more about it at the permanent kiosk at Gos’ store.
Oh and I have a little tip about finding the Picnic dress at Gizza if you’re using the Firestorm viewer. Click on World -> Area Search -> type the word picnic in the Name box -> Click the Search button. The system will search for anything with picnic on the sim and then you check the Show Beacons box in the bottom right corner and you’ll see some blue crosshairs where the Picnic dresses are located. It REALLY saves time when you’re in a very large store with not a lot of time to look around

This month’s FaMeshed is in full swing and I just had a couple of things from the Kings of Mesh to show off so you can get over there. First off, Loz Hyde from Meshworx made this beautiful bamboo collection called Macau. The materials viewer shows off the subtle gloss as you move around the room. The chair and table are sold separately, and the container they come in is also a picture frame. Just drag and drop your fave photo on the frame and viola! They are copy/mod as well. Next up, Gospel Voom from Gos has the gorgeous Lauren d’Orsay shoes in Silver that go with just about anything except pj bottoms. As usual his work is flawless.

How old were you when you realized that Fairy Tales were psychological jokes of unfulfilled expectations? Not signing up for Happily Ever After isn’t a bad thing, it’s actually quite healthy in dealing with this tragic thing called life. The well crafted stories are written by authors that have no problem throwing their heroes into mortal danger because that is what our problem solving minds want. The sport is waiting to see when and if the author is going to give our protagonist a reprieve every now and then. It’s never easy, but I choose interesting every time.
I think the most epic stories are those where the antagonists and the protagonists switch it up because that’s what happens in real life, doesn’t it? Situations present themselves and we make choices and not always the best choices. The victory is learning not to have our minds so set that we can’t see the soft spot in the heart of the bad guy. So does the story change, or does our way of thinking change? I don’t know about you, but I’ve learned so much by finding my way out of bad decisions that were some of my own and some that others made for me.
Life is so much more than the elusive Fairy Tale.
