Way out and into

Out of the winter time. Out of the rainy days. Out of the gloomy mood that insists on visiting me every now and then. Out of worries and concerns about friends not feeling so well. Out of wondering about tomorrow.

Picture taken at Macbeth Island.

Into bright sunny days, filled with warm weather and blossoming flowers. Into focusing on things that are really important. Into summer holidays in a distant tropical country. Into laying down under a springful tree, a book on my hands and soft music playing at a distance.

Yes, I long for Spring…

With so many Valentine’s item being constantly released all over the grid, I had my task very much easied by another of Clio Cardiff’s releases: the naughty Drousilla dress.


The pictures display the red version. Hope you’re able to notice the lovely assymetrical drawn lace work and how the skirt flows nicely around one’s legs (gloves and stockings are not a part of the outfit, though). The folder includes the perfect underwear allowing you to wear this outdoors as well – but follow my advise and give it a try without any of those beneath the actual dress… and be prepared to see your special one drooling over you…


❤ Is it too early to wish you Happy Valentine’s Day ? Mmm… oh well, sorry about that, you’ll just have to put up with my romantical moods I guess *winks

Petros’ read in ikas peek-a-boo about Macbeth Island. I’ll prevent from repeating Ika Cioc’s detailed description and insights – go and read her blog instead!

It was all her fault anyway, that we went for a stroll there and found the island is everything she tells us… a place with a unique feeling.

My favourite corners ? The place where the dark castle suddenly gives place to a green and pink coloured gardened corridor…


… that slowly transforms itself into a gloomy somber place, where hands try to release themselves from the columns to grab you and the floor screams words of pain to your ears…


And also the west point – where it is impossible to avoid this feeling of emptiness and desolation…


Don’t forget to pick up the different books you will find along the way. They deliver precious hints on interactive activities and memorable excerts of the Play itself. Surely a place you will not want to miss !

Monthversary picture


You know when you feel the whole world is yours and life has yet so many to be lived ? Guess I don’t need to say anything else…

No, my monthversary gift wasn’t the sun – though Petros takes me to the moon every night. Then again, you see, it’s not too hard to keep a girl happy, even when she insists on writing silly wish lists just to confuse her partner, hehehe

What’s the secret ? The most obvious of them all – keep it simple ! In my case, it totally made my day to be led to one of my favourite stores (League, in this case) and be asked… to choose whatever I wanted, hehehe

And since this is one situation where a girl should never be shy… so I did, LOL. I chose a set which is sold separately, thus allowing us to match a top with leggings. I had drooled over it during previous visits, but had always bought something else instead – so this was my chance, I made a party out of it and took home three different tops and some new leggings.


YAY! I do love you, babe !! *grabs Petros’ hand and drags him home, closing the door behind the two of us*

Wish list

Apparently, someone was in great trouble yesterday. To ease your day, babylove, here goes my wishlist :

* sun * beach * a house in Bora Bora * four homestead sims where I can build the swamp of my dreams and disappear for three months while displaying objects randomly around * work from home * double pay-check at the end of the month (so I could afford tiers of said homestead sims) * a lawyer to take care of my pending issues on the basis of a final percentage over my reimbursement * dinner at “O Madeirense”, my favourite restaurant

See ? Now you cannot complain, you have eight whole items where to choose from… and no, don’t need to thanking me for making your life so much easier – you know I do it all for love !! ❤

Ah! If anyone else feels an unexpected generous mood, I am not picky as to who is offering, hehehehe *winks*

This all started as another Sweethearts’ story. *smiles* Yes, I do have many of these, most of them unpublishable, lol. Which is not surprising, when you think that is a place full of life, with people constantly coming and going.

A non-expected IM suddenly opened in my scree, from the talented Clio Cardiff from Clio pret a porter, asking me if I’d mind she dropping on me something. I have to admit it that at first I didn’t link together the name with the store, and my first stupid reply was like “As far as it doesn’t kill me…”. How idiot does it sound, huh ? Lucky for me, she thought this was funny, and was kind enough to ask about my favourite colours and then…

…tcham tchammmmm! Here they are.

Gwen gown in pink
A sweet pink gown with a shorter front skin that smoothly grows longer on the back. It flows gently as I walk and dance and I couldn’t resist putting it together with my ballerina shoes from Shiny Things. It totally makes me feel cutie and sweetie like a ballet doll. And in this picture, obviously, AnaLutetia‘s pose do help *winks

Embrace Darkness gown in black and red
And this vibrant black and red, with a three parts skirt (one in front and another one that attaches to each leg) that envolves me in a cloud of mystery and catched the eyes of everyone in the place – it’s not everyday I am invited to dance by three different guys *winks* and have IMs cumplimented me on my outfit, which obviously gave me the chance to thank her publicly for her kindness.

You know, I wish more designers had similar initiatives. No, I am not putting myself forward to some more gifts. But hostess over there have to be on their best formal look everytime, and I am sure you can imagine what this implies in terms of financial effort. Being the center of the whole place surely makes everyone turn their eyes on you, and I am often asked for landmarks of the stores where I got several items I wear – from jewelry to shoes (oh yes, amazing where people close up their cameras, hehehe)

To Ms. Cardiff, who made me feel a princess for two whole shifts, my heartfelt THANK YOU. To all of you, be welcome to have a look at her mainstore in here – I am sure you will find something you will like it, amongst so many different styles…
