The Year That Was

The Year That Was

Before I turn and take the few steps that are left that will take me through the open door into 2018, I stand and look back on the past year. 2017 was truly, for me Annus horribilis (a Latin phrase, meaning “horrible year”). But I made it. I’m still here. A little frayed around the edges, and with a few cracks here and there, but not broken. 2017 tried it’s damned hardest to break me and failed. So please excuse me, while I turn my back on the year that was, hold my head up high, and walk towards 2018 with my arms open wide, ready to embrace a new chapter in my life.

To all my friends, both old and new, I wish you all a happy and healthy new year.

Bring on 2018!

The Cat Lady

The Cat Lady

The crazy cat lady they call her. Every morning and evening without fail she can bee seen taking her cats for a walk in the forest. She has two of the blackest cats you have ever seen, with eyes as orange and bright as flames on a fire. Some say she is a witch, some say she’s just a crazy old woman, but, whatever and whoever she is, I’m sure she’s happy with her cats!

Silver Dreams

For the last year
I’ve been searching
I needed something to believe
I’m a gambler
With my fortune
Trying to keep you up my sleeve 
When I’m away
I fill my heart with
I lose myself
Keep my silver dreams of you 


This gorgeous, sexy and VERY clingy dress is from MOoH! This is the Destiny Dress with Verve HUD. The HUD includes 7 colours for the dress, side panels and straps, and 5 colours for the metals, each part can be changed individually to give a stunning and unique look. Destiny comes in fits for all the usual mesh bodies, plus 5 standard fits and an alpha for classic bodies too. You can get this lovely dress now at the MOoH! mainstore.

In my post on Monday I told you about a brand new event starting this week called Savoir Faire. This is a new monthly event which starts on the 7th of the month and runs until the 28th. You can read all about the Savoir Faire Event on their website HERE.   Round 1 starts tomorrow, and I have another sneaky peek for you! This beautiful jewelry  I’m wearing is the Jewelry Set Gloria from Fortuna. It includes both the earrings and the necklace, and there is a HUD which allows you to change the colours of the gems and metals. The set is modifiable so you can move it around and adjust it to your own liking.  Also from Savoir Faire is my lipstick, which is the Softest Lips Lipstick from POUT!  I did show you this also in my post on Monday, but I’m showing a shade today from the Light colour collection. Softest Lips comes in two colour sets, one light and one dark, each set has several beautiful soft shades to choose from.

Silvery ClosePlease remember Savoir Faire does NOT open until tomorrow (7th Sept).

Telegraph Road

Telegraph Road

A long time ago came a man on a track
Walking thirty miles with a pack on his back
And he put down his load where he thought it was the best
Made a home in the wilderness
He built a cabin and a winter store
And he ploughed up the ground by the cold lake shore
And the other travellers came riding down the track
And they never went further, no, they never went back
Then came the churches then came the schools
Then came the lawyers then came the rules
Then came the trains and the trucks with their loads
And the dirty old track was the telegraph road


Oh I’m so honored today I’m showing two items that are named for me! Well, just one was named after me actually, the other one just carries my RL name, so of course I just had to show it! Firstly the lovely Phenella Shoes from Slipper Originals. These were named after me in honor of me being named as their Blogger Of The Month back in May. I’ve been blogging for Slipper Originals now for a long time, and the lovely Elle Polygon (Designer and Owner) and LauraGenia Viper (Blogger Manager) are such sweethearts to work with. These gorgeous shoes are based around a circus theme, and they are so fun and quirky! They come in fits for Slink and Maitreya, and the socks are inclusive. There’s a HUD with 8 different colour options for every aspect of the shoe, and 8 different designs for the socks. The great thing about these is you can change each part individually so you can really let your imagination run wild! Get over to the Slipper Originals Mainstore now and grab yourself a pair of…ME!

Telegraph Road - Shoes Closer

The other item that carries my name is the Fiona Tattoo from Aseriz. Yes! a bit of a reveal there, although most of you know by now that my real name is Fiona! Fiona comes in appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya and Omega, and also comes in tattoo layers for classic bodies. She comes in two colours, black and white, and two strengths, 70% and 100%. I’m wearing the 70%. You can grab Fiona now and the Hashtag Event which runs until 30th July.

Another absolutely lovely lady to work with is Emberotic Draconia of Emberotics Fashion Designs. Today I have the very pretty Strapless Summer Dress. This dress is so cute! It comes with a HUD with 6 colour options, and fits for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza and Jomo. You can get this now at the Emberotics Fashion Designs Mainstore.

That’s it for now, hope you enjoy the music, below all the links to all the things as usual, enjoy your Sunday, I’ll be back soon with more goodness….

Swimming at Dusk

Swimming at Dusk

When you’re left on your own, for hours on end, and you suddenly realise it’s starting to get dark, and you’ve wasted hours just waiting, and who or what you were waiting for is just not going to happen, there’s only one thing for it, go swimming. Swimming at dusk is awesome, there’s nothing quite like it. When you’re on a beach, not a soul around and the sun sets over the sea as you swim out into the ocean. Perfect calmness and complete darkness, with only the moon and stars that light the sky, quiets the soul.


This gorgeous outfit from MOoH! is available at the 158th round of Designer Circle which is well underway now and runs until 21st July. This is the Aisha outfit. It comes in two colour sets, Bold and Soft. I’m wearing from the Bold collection. The outfit is actually a top, with a thong and skirt, I’ve not shown the skirt here, just the thong and top, because I think it makes a very sexy bikini! (I’ll show it with the skirt in another colour in another post soon ….promise!). Aisha comes in fits for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink and also comes in stanadard sizing too. There are 9 colours to choose from and colours of the top, skirt, panties and beads can be changed independently.

Staying at Designer Circle my Necklace is the Infinity Necklace from !IT! Indulge Temptation and is also available at the event. Infinity comes in 6 different colour sets (I’m wearing from HUD no 6). The HUD also allows you to resize if you need to.

My tattoo is from Sam Tattoos and this is called Leafs Falling. I blogged another tattoo called Tree Beard a little while ago, you can see it again in my post HERE. Both tattoos make a set so you can wear them both together making a full body tattoo, or separately like I have done. They are both unisex and come in appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and Signature bodies.

Swimming at Dusk 1

My gorgeous eyes are another amazing release from Jadis Ashland of Mesange. Her eyes are always awesome and each time I think I have a favourite she goes and releases another great set! These are the Era Eyes and they are exclusives at We ❤ Roleplay which runs until 31st July. As always with Mesange eyes you get both classic and mesh eyes and there’s also a HUD that works with the Omega enabled eyes. There are 15 colours to choose from.

You Got A Friend


If you know me well, or follow me on Facebook you will know today is my birthday. Today, my post is dedicated to my closest and dearest friends.

We all know that Second Life can be a very strange and weird place to be, and yet, we all know it can be a wonderful place to be also. Strangely I have found that being able to come here and chat with people, when things have been so bad in real life, has been a source of great comfort and strength to me over the last few months. And, while my friends list is quite small, I wouldn’t be without any of you, both those I’ve known for years and those of you whom I have met recently.

Those of you that I’m close to will know what a bad time I’ve had in my real life the first six months of this year. Today I want to thank those people who have given me strength, comfort, a shoulder to dry on at times, and love and companionship at a time when I really needed it.

Rose and Dan – My oldest and best friends in this world, a constant support, they never get tired of me. They provide a place of solitude when I need to hide and company when I need it. Truly, together they are my rock.

Draven ( or D as I call him!) – Again one of my oldest friends, we have been through a lot together, and although we did lose touch for a while, he’s back in my life and I am so grateful for that. His down to earth, no nonsense advice is always spot on.

Meri – A truly lovely lady, we may not speak often but I know she is always there if I need an ear.

Kanjena – Another lovely lady, who speaks a lot of sense, another no-nonsense tell it like it is person, who’s honesty and sincerity I value so much.

Fitz – Every once in a while you meet someone and instantly click. He made it easy to make friends, and although I haven’t known him long, it feels like I’ve known him for years. I’m proud to include him as one of my best friends, his ability to always make me smile and laugh is never ending.

Thank you ❤

Thursdays Child


No poem or cheesy lyrics today, I want to talk…

It’s Thursday. And I’m tired. And it’s raining.
