501 Love Bento



Oh yes I do love Bento. New bones are definitely making our second lives more expressive.

Mesh heads and bodies have always been an amazing addition to second life cosmetically for how our avatar looks.  But the addition of new bones better rigging for faces meaning we can edit and make our mesh heads more personal has been a great leap in our 3d world.Since the advent of mesh bodies the lack of animation in our hands has been evident, bento hands change that and mean not only our faces can be emotive now!

Image Essentials has brought out a stunning new pose pack released at Designer Showcase


You will need bento hands and a bento compatible viewer to use the beautiful Soft Caress Poses that are a must for bloggers and photographers that like to do beautiful close up shots. 5 poses and mirrors are included within the pack. Love Bento

This beautiful dress is Masooms exclusive for We


As I said above this pose set really is for close ups but I had to share these wow shoes with you they are from Glamistry who are one of my new Blog sponsors, they are testing out a new Blogger beta system and I have to say so far so good I have loved the simplicity of it.

Grab up these elegant shoes that you can customise in so many ways!


Thanks for reading hugs.

I think Steel is starting to panic the move to spring at home is underway and yesterday the front garden area was well underway. I decided it was time for the Jian wanderer pets to have a run around the Jian Orchard(pictured). Whilst trying to take this picture and being photobombed by dogs and cats repeatedly.

This cute pose is from Fashi-owl available at The Coven Event and is one of 4 new releases with multiple poses you will find there.Cat is included.

My Top and skirt is from More Than Ever, I have been blogging More Than Ever sometime and I love how she textures, there is a lot of uniqueness in good texturing thanks for trusting me in another awesome look.

Like Mother, Like Daughters


Like Mother, Like Daughters

There is an old Jewish Proverb it says “What the daughter does the mother did”.  I just found that and I am so remembering it.

The picture above signals our first photo with a mum, those who know me and my sister Namrah will know we have looked for some time on and off in knowing one another and before then but no-one really clicked with us both and was what we hoped they would be.

On the 4th of this month knowing I had about 2 weeks left of being on nasty internet, I re-posted our information, one of the places being on Facebook. Before 10 minutes had passed (Anderian) mum had replied and said she wanted to get to know us.

Since then, up until this time last week we talked mainly via Facebook, but when I could get in we spent time together and talked more. I am not the easiest person to get to know, you think the walls are coming down and then something happens and wham bam back to square one. We needed to find someone who understood and took both me and Namrah as we are. Mum does this and understands our little quirks very well, hence why we have become officially her daughters, i.e. she is stuck with us!

Ok enough about us, what about the beautiful dress we are all modelling. Uber opened on the 25th and the waiting to get in is so worth it when you are greeted with beauty like this from Reverie.

The beautiful Ciara comes in 8 plain and 8 aztec colours, fitted for Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass.

We wanted a picture of us all and honestly the dress we all loved and just seemed to help us fit this pose that was self made by our mum.

Me I am on the right and my credits are below, please feel free to check out my mum’s blog- Lost in My Imagination and my sister’s blog- Dreaming Second Life.

Fall And Family


Family Fall Time

It is not that I don’t like fall I do because the colours and beauty of nature is amazing, but on my travels this summer I met lots of different people all with differing views on so much.

Fall to some is beauty to others they don’t see it like that. I sat and spoke to an older lady as she was travelling on her own and her view on fall is this, as the season changes from Summer to Autumn we see the pretty  shed their life and beauty and in some cases die. I was quick to add but it also enables rebirth in the future, she advised me the future is no guarantee. She was far from a negative person from my other chats with her I can tell you she was probably one of the most inspiring people I met, at 82 she was travelling and visiting all the places she has wanted to in her life but never done. She has some bucket list of places let me tell you and in each place she has something to do. She is well aware she may not get to every place but she has said as long as she can, she will! We could all learn a lot from that. She talked about her family, her husband sadly not here any more but her kids supporting her every place she visits!

Family is so important and even those who do not think they are heavily into family roleplay in second life if they look a little deeper they will see in their close knit groups a kind of family, different people take different roles, it happens all around us in society continuously.

This last week quite by accident I fell upon a photo on flickr of a wee one looking for a family, she is also a blogger and an animal lover, I messaged her and well that as they say is history. There is an easy connection between all of us forming which isn’t easy with our family with me and Steel having been together years and Zoey having been with us nearly 2 now. Here is to hoping things go well and that we see some collaboration blog posts very soon.

This pose is a great one for those awesome fall pictures and is a new release from Something New, Ally and Jake have been busy getting a Halloween store all set up for you.  It comes with poses for four as seen but there is extra kid baskets if you need them!


I did not dress everyone for this picture so can not tell you what everyone is wearing but by all means as always feel free to contact the others to get their information.
