Mr. X and the Asian Shower - Heart Homes @ ON9

I love the idea of an outdoor shower... under the sky... and once again, Heart Homes has come through with a fabulous low prim shower perfect for one or two people.  The poses are really fun and simple to use.

Just sit on the shower to use it's poses... you can choose to use it as a single or as a couple .... there are nine fun single poses sure to keep you clean! The side wall has the nine poses in it. If you want to use the shower as a couple, ladies sit first... so remember to be a gentleman!


To get the shower on there are two "hot" and "cold" faucets and the one in the middle turns the water on and off. You can also turn the tealights on and off with a simple click.

The bench comes with nine poses and includes everything from a ground sit to comfy, flirting and dangling.    As with all of Heart Home produces, the details are amazing from the slatted oriental feel of the wood to the towels, soap and candles.  This is a must have for any beach setting. I love it and so does Mr. X.

Mr. X and Thalia - Wicca's Wardrobe

Thalia was portrayed as a young woman crowned with ivy...  a woman of joy... a strong woman... one of the nine Muses...  even Zeus and Mr. X  sings her praises... and this new outfit appropriately called, Thalia made by Wicca's Wardrobe is the perfect for role play and... just because -- I feel like a Goddess when I wear this... and I like that!  And, Mr. X always treats me as one! (of course)!


Thalia's beautifully textured top and bottom comes with a beautiful hud that offers four textures. Thalia is made for  Slink and Maitreya (worn).   It is composed of a leaf like pattern that flows... it is really gorgeous... and the chains... are evocative and beautiful... they are so realistic that Mr. X says he feels them as he passes his fingers through them.


When I wear this, I feel as though I have seen empires come and go... and that I still stand to see another day... a glorious sunrise and dusty sunset... where I wait alone... quietly for Mr. X... he arrives with a legion of lavender clouds... and blossoms... for me...

Mr. X and Xana - *New* Gown Resun

I told Mr. X there are some gowns that you just have to have and the new release by Resun called Xana is one of those gowns.  Xana is made for classic avatar bodies and fit mesh bodies.  Xana is also made for the following mesh bodies including Belleza Freja, Isis and Venus, Slink Physique and Hourglass, TMP and Maitreya (worn) and Maitreya 1.

Xana is made of smooth sleek satin with a gorgeous embellished brocade just above the empire waistline that adds an elegant dimension to this gown.  The pattern is carried out on the neckline of Xana adding elegance and allure. The pattern reminds me of a  modern take on a fleur-de-lis symbol.
Xana comes with a handy color changing hud and offers a gorgeous range of colors from silver, gold and lavender to bronze, blue, brown, black and silver and gold and silver, each choice is stunning. This is a perfect gown to get you through the winter season and into spring.


I loved the vibrant red and think it is the perfect gown for Valentine's Day... Mr. X agreed!  Another classic look is the black gown with the silver accents.  Xana also comes with a pair of silver and gold chain bracelets that help accessorize the look.
One thing I have always liked about Resun is his eye for detail.  Mr. X and I love when a gown is as beautiful from the back as it is from the front and Xana does not disappoint with its' square back and netting around the shoulders  punctuated by a fleur-de-lis
Don't miss the matching shoes sold separately called Madrid.  They offer compatible colors so matching this outfit is a snap.  The shoes are beautiful with high stiletto heels and festive chains. You can change the color of the chains, and the color of the upper and lower part of the shoes so they will come in handy for many outfits. Best of all, the shoes are made for Bellezza, Slink and Maitreya (worn) heels. A really convenient hud comes with the gown and shoes that allows you to use the same hud to color the gown and shoes so you don't have to switch huds!

Mr. X and Isa d Orable and Jumo @ Swank...

I told Mr. X that I was feeling positively royal today... so off we went to search for elegant ball gowns... my first and last stop was @ Swank, such a great choice of clothing and accessories and even furniture are great prices. I fell in love with four gowns there by Isa D Orable Creations.


The first is a classic ball gown empire waist A-line gown with its wide ball skirt and slim waist accented by a satin belt and sweetheart neckline is called Dutchess.  The texture is a fabulous heavy white satin with a lavish black beads that shimmer making this gown an instant classic. It comes made for fit mesh bodies as well as for belleza, slink and Maitreya (worn). making it easy to wear regardless if you have a classic or mesh body. It also comes with a diamond necklace,earrings and a crown! You will feel like a Duchesse indeed!
My next find by Isa D Orable is a gorgeous formal gown replete with crown, earrings and necklace called Comtesse. What could be more opulent than blue and gold... this gown reminds me of the color of Mr. X's eyes... a deep royal blue... as noble as the gold flowers that embellish this gorgeous gown. Comtesse's texture glimmers in the light in SL... just enough to cause a stir -- you won't be missed in this elegant creation that is made for fit mesh classic bodies as well as for slink, belleza and maitreya.

For something a bit sleeker, Isa D Orable is offering Celeste in Red and in Blue.  This mermaid style gown with its billowing flexi prim sides is an elegant option for a formal night out. It also has netting and cutouts at the midriff and hips that make this a contemporary knockout with loads of sex appeal! Another standout feature of this gown is the  beaded bodice and flower like hat.

Since I was feeling royal, I also picked up Jumo's exclusive at Swank... Else Hair and Matching star shaped jewelry and a matching crown... it is beautifully made and will go with so many things. I am especially fond of the earrings. The hair is parted on the side, shoulder length and comes in a number of colors including a fatpack of the best of. I am in love with the blonde and the blonde roots pack, but I always manage to pick up all colors because you never know what color hair you will need to go with your skin and make up and attire!


The final gown by Isa D Orable is called Diamantine... this sleek sexy gown with a deep slit all the way up the left leg sparkles and shimmers...it comes with a color changing hud featuring four colors: pink and silver, gold and orange, blue and silver and black and silver.  There are two lovely floral attachments that make this gown a knockout!

Time to Samba Mr. X @ Marvelous Events with Posh Pixels and Jumo Hair

I told Mr. X that this jumpsuit with its cascading ruffles and shell belt buckle by Posh Pixels in a beautiful royal blue brocade texture makes me want to Samba!  Appropriately, it is called Samba is an exclusive at this month's Marvelous Events that runs through January 31. On a cold winter day, this hot latin dance warms me right up! The hair is new by Jumo and called Jolie this is the dark brown hud with roots... it  is gorgeous!


Perhaps one of the most popular music and dance styles ever to emerge from Brazil, samba evolved in Rio de Janeiro by the early 20th century and grew to become the quintessential music and dance form associated with Rio's carnaval. With its rich and syncopated rhythm and it's often voluptuous dance moves, samba has circled the globe as one of the most infectious and popular styles from the South American continent.
The word "samba" is thought to be derived from the Kimbundu (Angolan) term semba, which referred to an "invitation to dance" as well as a common appellation for the dance parties held by slaves and former slaves in the rural areas of Rio. These dances involved gyrating hip movements (called umbigada) and had roots going back to the colonial period in the Congolese and Angolan circle dances.
Over time samba gained important influences not only from Brazilian predecessors such as the maxixe and the marcha, but the Cuban habanera and German polka as well. As a song form, samba was extremely popular during the turn of the century, with some of the early recordings dating back to 1911. Among the early pioneers of the song form was Alfredo da Rocha Vianna Jr., known as Pixinguinha, who helped to crystallize the form as well as develop a richer harmony. From the 1920s and into the height of the radio era of the '30s, sambas were slower and more romantic (such as those of Ismael Silva), leading to the subgenre known as samba-canção, which emphasized the melody over the rhythm, and lyrics that were more sentimental and often moody. Brazilian crooners and composers put samba on the international radar, and icons such as Carmen Miranda embraced the form, becoming a star in Brazil long before her move to the U.S. and Hollywood as a personification of Brazil's exuberant side.
Another important development in the legacy of samba took place in the late 1950s which would spark the second international wave of popularity for Brazilian music: the development of bossa nova. Considered an adaptation of the previous samba- canção form, bossa nova emphasized the melodic and vocal aspects of samba in a slower, more romantic style fused with the richness of American jazz harmony. The result was a sound many music critics first panned for its "out-of-tune" qualities, but its popularity soared as pioneers such as Antonio Carlos Jobim and João Gilberto brought bossa nova to new heights. Films such as Black Orpheus(with a musical score of sambas and bossa novas composed by Jobim) wowed international audiences with the sounds of authentic Brazilian music.

Mr. X & Art Deco - Byrne, Yeux and Jumo @ Swank

The Art Deco period was a time of great upheaval... think flappers and the jitterbug... long nights of champagne, caviar and the beguiling sound of jazz... think... slinky tubular clothing silhouettes...a time when people thought everything and anything was possible...
Think...the new long sleeved duo-tone leather bodycon minidress with plunging v-neck in pinstripe geometric design by Byrne that is an exclusive at  Swank. There are two dresses and each one has their own beauty...and comes in black with white and white with black options in each version.

The two dresses, Ren and Arrow both come with lavish art deco patterns that are totally eye catching.  They are made for Fitmesh, SLink, Maitreya and Belleza and come in two options: black/white and white/back. The difference is the pattern... both are classically Art Deco.
These perfectly textured dresses have an art deco geometric vibe with modern sexy styling. It marries the best of old and modern. The texture is beautiful as it combines simple angular shapes in a bold pattern giving it depth and beauty.  The overall effect creates a fabulous fashion statement.

Mr. X -- I am ready to go out on the town... in this dress I can dance up a storm..let's get going... I want to do the Charleston with complete abandon... work up a sweat.... and........ well, you get the idea... don't you?


Another find @Swank at the eyes by Yeux.  The eyes called Rosario are mesh and regular eyes... I am wearing the eyes in Honey... so pretty and soft... love the color. I am also wearing the earrings by Jumo that are part of her exclusive @ Swank called Elsa

Mr. X and Suzie - New @ Swank Emerald Couture and Jumo

Mr. X it is winter... and so very cold... and all I can think about is an al fresco winter picnic... but first I need to find the perfect location and the perfect outfit... well the outfit is not hard to find at all... I just popped into swank and found the most gorgeous outfit by Emerald Couture called Suzie Sweater Set

I love the long sweater coat  jacket in a rich berry color and the two pocket sleek pants with an antique brass shank button and zipper fly. They show off my long legs perfectly. This also comes with cute boots that are for slink and non rigged feet; the non rigged allows you to wear the boots with Maitreya, Belleza, Eve and whatever else mesh feet you have :).


The cute blouse comes for maitreya lara and uses the appliers, omega system for maitreya worked like a dream. The tone of this blouse with its cute lace up accent blends perfectly with the sweater and slacks. Suzie is made for mesh and original bodies and comes in this berry color and in teal.


The hair, and anyone that knows me knows I love- love- love- hair and this is new hair by Jumo called Kardashian -- it is just gorgeous!  I know if the Kardashians were in SL (god, help us!)  they would love this hair too!  The hair is Jumo's newest line, and is the result of a collaboration of Jumo and Nice Wildrose.  This line of hair is really amazing and offers so many great hud alternatives -- you can purchase this hair straight - meaning without roots or with roots... I am wearing blonde with roots. Each hud comes with 8 fabulous colors to choose from.  I can never choose... so I recommend.. just get the fatpack - you will be glad you did! I am also wearing earrings by Jumo that are available at Swank called Elsa Jewelry and they are shaped like stars.

Styles By Danielle -*Final* Gown MVW and Tribute Schedule

Dani Plassitz is a singer and well known fashion designer in Second Life.  Managed by Sweet Sins - C.Y.D. Records Management run by Sassy (Sweetjc.Resident) and Syl.Darcy.  Dani was also a very good friend of mine, someone I trusted and respected; a friend that I was proud to blog for.  Dani had a keen eye for elegant fashion and thoughtful eye for colors, textures and details.
I helped Dani write the note card for this elegant gown I am wearing that was worn by a 2017 MVW Contestant that not surprisingly came in second in this gorgeous gown. I love the delicate gold lace butterfly sleeves complimented by the lace at the hip and floral details of the rich brocaded mermaid styled gown that gently flairs out in a soft green and gold. The hint of lavender at the hemline of the gown is so beautiful and ties the entire gown together.

That late night on December 11 was the last time I spoke to Dani..it was a good conversation... work on note card, some gossip and of course, as usual, we ended up talking about cookies and baking... as Dani was also an excellent cook in RL.  Dani Plassitz passed away suddenly on 13 Dec 2017 when she collapsed in her RL husband arms after returning from the hospital. Dani was complaining that she wasn't feeling well on the Monday so her husband took her to the Hospital on the Tuesday, December 13th.  When she returned from the hospital she collapsed -- her sudden death was because of her very low hemoglobin iron count. It was unexpected and tragic, she was only 45.
Dani Plassitz  has a  soft sweet voice and oh my...can she hit those high notes with precision. She has a Amy Grant or Carole King with a little Faith Hill mixed in her music style.  Her sets are always a pleasure to attend, her sets are an Dani sings an eclectic mix of classic and contemporary songs from Doris Day to Evanescence. Tunes like Constant Craving, Crush, I will go down with this ship, Blondie’s Call Me and Sunshine Raggae by Laid Back to name a few were often performed.  Dani was dubbed the Kate Bush of SL after she sang "Wuthering Heights"  the classic by Kate Bush.


There are two events happening in SL to commemorate and celebrate the wonderful person and creative spirit of Dani Plassitz.  The first is on Sunday, January 8 at 11 a.m. SL time with a Models Give Back Fashion Show.  All models taking part in this walk will be in remembrance of Dani's Fashion genius... Styles by Danielle.  The LM is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Tranquility/177/130/23

On Monday, January 9, the music world of SL will commemorate Dani with an ongoing series of concerts beginning at 11 a.m. SL time and concluding at 4 p.m. SL time.  There will be nine entertainers/singers that have dedicated 30 minutes each in tribute to  Dani Plassitz's  singing career on SL.  The LM for this event is  at Dani's Shop and is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Schlossberg/224/98/21

Mr. X in the Teagarden... irriSIStible @ Swank

I await Mr, X in the garden... wearing a lovely new gown called Japan Sakura Soul by irriSIStible that is an exclusive at Swank.  This gorgeous Japanese styled gown is a lovely floral print and is made for mesh and classic bodies. I am wearing it with my Maitreya body and it fits perfectly. It also comes loaded with accessories!

Sakura comes with an elaborate floral head piece and two matching chest pieces that are just stunning. This kimono that literally translates as "things to wear" and there is even an elaborate black and gold obi or sash at the waistline. There is even a lovely umbrella to protect your fair skin from the sun. I love the use of textures and colors in this outfit with the cherry blossom pattern on the umbrella mirroring the flowers on the kimono as well as the flowers in my hair.


So Mr. X shall we wander amid the cherry blossom paths to the ancient grove of bamboo...let us stroll hand in hand through the elegant rock garden at Ryoanji as we make our way to the temple of the golden pavilion to have tea as we watch the sunrise.
