The Spring Maiden

A seelie princess, roaming the beautiful gardens of her sithen.  Admiring the gift crafted for her.  It was exquisite, a gorgeous staff, made in the form of a thistle. She held it aloft, channeling her energy, power and aura into the finely crafted piece of metal.  It sizzled and purple flames embraced the heart of the thistle. “yes this will do” she said “this will do very nicely indeed.” her eyes darken for the seelie may look fair and innocent but they could be anything but.

Fading Light

Swank is a great event if you want to pick yourself up a little bargain.  The delectable work of LRD features both male and female designs and we all know how often men can be left out of larger events so it’s good to see more quality designers getting into newer events.  LRD is known for the high quality of their textures, for me a good mesh shape to an outfit is great but if the texture sucks it kills it dead and I’m more likely to walk past it and keep my pretty linden stash in my pocket.  LRD though, is one that makes me want to spend, spend, spend and it doesn’t help that this dress was called Nishy, it was made for me!

Your passion will determine whether your dreams can burn bright, or be cast into the wind like so many embers, dying in the fading light.

On Traffic Duty

“But Daaaad, I want to go to the Fantasy Faire, it opens today and you have me stuck on traffic duty, I mean…come on, can these fishes not just direct themselves?” She swishes her tail in a little temper, waving the fish in the correct direction.  She would wait till the MerKing’s back was turned and swim her way all the way to the first of the gorgeous sims.

Thank you to the gorgeous Emerald Coast Fantasy RP Sim for allowing me to invade to take my blogger image.  The roleplay is all based on Lauren K Hamilton’s wonderful Anita Blake and Merry Gentry stories.

Lady of the Manor

The Fantasy Faire 2016 for RFL opens tomorrow at 9am SLT and I’m honoured to be one of the selected bloggers.  Celebrating its eighth year, Fantasy Faire 2016 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. From Thursday, April 21 to Sunday May 1, treat yourself to eleven days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts, events and roleplaying as thousands of Second Life residents and creators bring their own visions together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.

She was the Lady of the Manor, the one that brought light to them all.  Eloquent in both her style of dress and all her manerisms, everyone thought her delicate.  Little did they know the inner core of steel that belied the delicacy all assumed of her.  She would die for her home, her lands, her family.

Travel Blogging

She likes to wander the world, taking photos, journaling each moment to share with all and sundry.  The delicate pink of the sakura makes her want to stay in the confetti of petals forever.


Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.

“She knew that she had a tendency to allow her mind to wander, but surely that’s what made the world interesting. One thought led to another, one memory triggered another. How dull it would be, she thought, not to be reminded of the interconnectedness of everything, how dull for the present not to evoke the past, for here not to imply there.”

― Alexander McCall Smith, The Novel Habits of Happiness

Warrior Queen

She glides through her terrain, eyes watching, ever careful of her surroundings. She was connected to the magic of the lands, each foot brushes the soil sending the magic through her slender frame.

Don’t look for a princess to save, Look for a queen to fight at your side.

The Watcher

“You’ve taught me that we’re all needed, even those who sometimes think we’re worthless, plain and dull. If we love and allow ourselves to be loved…well, a person who“It’s so damn hard to bloom… to change. Even when you want to change, want it more than anything in the world, it’s hard. Desire to change isn’t enough. Or desperation. Couldn’t be done without…love,”
― Dean Koontz, Watchers

This adorable dress comes from Zibska, it has 11 colours for both the dress and the shoulder ruffles so you can mix and match from the hud.  It feels so delicate to wear and I adore the fit to my maitreya body.


Worry and rumination are the foes of being in the present moment. If you living in the past or the future… you can’t fully embrace the present moment.

Return to spring

Thank you all who have been messaging me whilst I have been absent.  For those that don’t know, I have Multiple Sclerosis in real life and unfortunately several infections decided to challenge my impaired immune system one after the other and I was bed ridden for a few weeks.  The good news is, I’m on the mend, I have energy again and I feel creative again so I can get back to what I love, taking photos of gorgeous items from Second Life.  Keep your eyes open there are lots of yummies coming up over the next weeks.

Thank you
